Yeah he was out momentarily in this fight, but have a rematch and it could go the other way just as easily.

You dont call a man done because he got caught for a split second, a minute into the first round.

sigh indeed.

I dont think anyone is calling him done due to  the flash knockout against Henderson.  It happens.  I think the three losses in a row are strong indications he doesn't have much left in the tank.   The Silva fight was brutal and hard to watch.  I just dont see anything that indicates he could beat man of the top fighters in MMA at the moment.   Maybe if he cut weight down light heavy weight  and corrected the flaws in his style that have showed up then maybe. Like I said earlier. Some fighters just get old fast.  I see strong indications that may have happened to him.  Shame.  I loved to watch him fight.

Yeah, he is done.  He just comes out and swings for the knockout.   The guy starts bleeding in the locker room.    The eye that Silva mauled looked bad again last night.   I hope he has someone around him that can tell him it's time to hang up the gloves before he gets hurt.

I see this as a lose-lose for for Fedor.  If he wins, everyone will say he beat a smaller guy and that he must  be washed up to agree to the fight.   If he loses, people will say he is washed up because he couldn't beat a smaller guy.  I don't see the benefit other than a paycheck.  In all fairness, this  may be all he wants at this point in his career.  I don't see him winning a major title unless he drops weight.  The current group of heavyweights are  just too big.   Fedor has always looked pudgy around the gut.  I dont think it would take much for him to drop down.

Well, it's ridiculous.  However, it may be a 100% pefect thing to do with my daughter for her birthday.

The closest one seems to be an hour and a half away, though, so I'm wondering if it's worth the schlep.  Anyone been to East Hanover, NJ?

We did this with the kids when we were at Wisconsin Dells a couple of years ago.   It was okay but I wouldn't drive an hour and a half to do it.   It was located in the main tourist trap area so it wasn't out of the way for us.   It was a good way to kill some time and it was air conditioned. smile

I saw both REC and Quarantine.  I enjoyed them both.  I saw Quarantine first and then discovered it was a remake.   I think I may have enjoyed Quarantine a little more as well.  I've been wanting to see REC 2 for some time.  I may have to pick up the the region 2 disc if I can find it cheap.

Nothing kills the high of getting a new game in the mail like a slow as molasses Sony system update.

Usually I agree with you, but my update completed extremely fast.

Killzone 3 has been everything I've wanted so far.  A ridiculously detailed world.  Excellent visuals and audio.  The controls are all fine tuned to perfection.  Love it!

Agree on all points.  Usually, my updates are painfully slow.  As far as the game goes, I think it is a huge improvement over Killzone 2.  The controls are vastly superior.  It's kept me from Bulletstorm for most of the night.

I wondered about how unscripted this actually was as well.  It sounds like they were accused of creating his persona for their radio show.  I guess, like in the opening episode, he is the straight man for the gags.  They swear that it is just him and it is all real.   Ricky Gervais said he was the funniest man in the UK.   Either way, scripted or unscripted,  I'll be watching the rest of the series.  icon_biggrin

It was a struggle to make it through the first hour. It was rushed, disjointed - it was like they tried to do a half season in 45 minutes. I didn't watch the second half. Deleted it.

It was bad. Like Sci-fi channel movie bad. Am I the only one that hated it?


Nope.  I didn't care for it either.  I watched about an hour and got bored.

97  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: UFC 121: Lesnar vs. Velasquez on: October 25, 2010, 12:04:20 AM
Lesnar was in trouble when the fight was stopped.  He had stopped defending himself and had just covered up.  Plus he was bleeding from a pretty deep looking gash under his left eye.  If I remember correctly, there was still quite a bit of time left in the round.   Maybe if it had been closer to the bell they would have let it go a little longer.  Lesnar looked pretty off balance at times during the Carwin fight but I thought it was just due to the power and size of Carwin.  It appears that he really just needs a lot of work on his striking.

Quote from: Abaddon on October 21, 2010, 06:30:23 AM

I know it's crazy to say about a guy 235 lbs but Velasquez isnt big enough to beat Lesnar IMHO. I'm definitely not a fan of Lesnar but as already stated if Shane Carwin at 12-0 with all knockouts couldnt beat down Lesnar I really can't think of anyone in the UFC who can at this point. The simple fact is most knockouts occur when the head is quickly snapped from it's position causing an attack on the brain stem. Lesnars neck and shoulders are so thick it's going to take a significant force to knock him out in the traditional manner. IMHO Emelianenko has the best chance against Lensar based on his simply incredible ability as a fighter. I think Fedor has the skills to counter Lesnar's sheer size but I doubt we will ever see that fight.

I agree.  I don't think Lesnar gets knocked out by anyone in the UFC at this point.  I think the only chance would be a submission like Mir put on him.   I watched part of the weigh in and the size difference between Lesnar and Velasquez was huge. My fear is that if there is a Fedor/Lesnar fight that it may come to late in Fedor's career for him to beat him.  It may already be too late.

And here's what a couple of kids, who go by 'AutoTune The News', did with it.

That's genius. Perhaps the best thing I've ever seen on Youtube. You can even buy it on Itunes!

I saw this earlier this week. I love the cover version at the end of the video. Pure genius.
109  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Anyone ever have Gall Bladder Surgery? on: August 06, 2010, 12:07:10 AM

Quote from: Scuzz on August 05, 2010, 11:39:37 PM

I had my gall bladder out maybe 10 years ago after having several "episodes".....I am surprised they took so long with you before scheduling surgery. My doctor was 99% sure after one visit and then ran a test and was positive.

The surgery is easier than passing a gall stone. Laproscopic surgeries are wonderful things. I have since had to have my appendix out that way.

You should be fine in a couple days and will be home a couple hours after the surgery.

One thing to watch out for.......I had this problem and have talked to others who had the same experience. You get a mix of irratable bowel syndrome and diarheha (sp) sometimes after a good meal. For a few years I would always have an anti-diarahrea pill before I ate out. I am not saying this will happen to you but it might. It has eased quit a bit since right after the surgery. Usually a large or rich meal would cause it.

And doctors will deny that is a side effect. Why, I don't know. But having lived it and talked to others I can claim personal knowledge.

I can say from personal experience that all of the above is correct.  It's been about 4-5 years since my surgery and I still have issues with diarrhea after meals.  Usually, a meal with a high fat content will set me off.   The surgery itself is a piece of cake.  It is about as close to drive through surgery as you can get.  My pain was relieved and I've generally felt better since it was out.

I've been wanting to check it out, but my 20 second exposure to "Mary Knows Best"  repelled me from Syfy's Thursday schedule.       Do they actually debunk the videos on this show, or is it like Ghost Hunters, where they're "skeptics" who  convince themselves that anything without a ready explanation is evidence of the paranormal?

From what I've seen anything they can't figure they convince themselves that it is paranormal.  However,  I think they officially call it "unexplained".  Last nights episode was silly.  They investigated a lake monster that was photographed in a man made lake.  They agreed that they thought there was probably something there because it was too difficult to fake a picture of a monster.  retard  The photo in question was taken from quite a distance away.  That being said, I still watch these type of shows for some reason.  icon_biggrin

A couple Circuit City footnotes...

* Here in Virginia at least, an electronics chain called HHGregg Appliances and Electronics has taken over most of the former (long vacated) Circuit City storefront locations. It hasn't opened any of them yet, and seem to be in the process of hiring for them:
-Interestingly, HHGregg doesn't sell desktop computers -- they only sell laptops. They seem to sell consoles and videogames a bit, but not PC games.

*I saw this notice at Micro Center's site when I was looking up something today:

Customers of the Former Circuit City!

On August 28, 2009, Micro Center acquired the postal mailing list of Circuit City Stores.
Customer information is also collected through Micro Centerís acquisition of Circuit Cityís customer database.  

We will advertise to selected people in this group to encourage in-store and/or online purchases from us, and will solicit information from these customers when they buy from us, or want to voluntarily sign up for our mailing lists.

To opt-out of any communications from Micro Center, our Marketing Partners or other companies, refer to the opt-out sections below.
*So, if you suddenly start getting Micro Center snail mails/e-mails, and don't want them, visit their preferences page to opt out of it:
Micro Center Preference Center
*I think it says you can also opt out by e-mailing or calling them but the pref. center seemed the easiest way.

HHGregg has been in business for quite some time.  They have had one in Bloomington, Indiana where my parents live for years. I was never that impressed with the prices but I know a lot of people in that area prefer them to Best Buy for appliances and TV's.  I liked Circuit City better except for the fact that there never seemed to be a cashier available to take my money there.

Watched this last night and was surprised that Lesnar made it through that first round.  I thought they might even call it for a moment there.  He sure has a chin!

Yeah, I mean he was getting punched by the white Mike Tyson here and not an out of shape gamer. Lesnar has a really good chin; of course look at his head... it's mostly chin.

Carwin was really building a Tyson like reputation.   Bull rush the other guy in the first 30 seconds and overwhelm them.  He looked clueless as to what to do when it didnt work.

I'm not a huge Lesnar fan but I have to say he really toned down the WWE crap last night in the post fight interview.  He actually seemed pretty humbe during most of the interviews before the match as well.  Either Dana White put a stop to it or his illness changed him a bit. Maybe he just had more respect for Carwin than his other opponenets.  I guess we'll see but I have a lot more respect for him now than before the fight.

Lesnar took a beating that first round. I thought it was over when he started back pedaling and covering up.  I guess now we know he can take a punch.  I thought the whole card was pretty good overall.

I was thinking that Inquisitor minis were a larger scale but I'm not positive on that point. They may be easier to put together and paint if thats the case.  Have you thought about ? The armies are prepainted which would get them playing faster.  They have some box sets for most of the armies now.  If you look around the internet, you can find some game sites have some heavy discounts on some of the minis. You can pick up the starter set really cheap.

Here in the midwest the malls always close on Easter.  I saw a crowd of people hovered over the ipads at Best Buy last night.  I didn't feel like waiting for a chance to play with one.  I was dead set against buying one of these until today. My wife was talking about them and she never talks about any tech gadget so I started looking into them a little more.  I started thinking this would be great to watch MLB.TV on this season.
