Mine doesn't have any scratches at all, I don't get carried away on it though. Unlike the PSP that scratches if you just look at it wrong.

Hell if I know DamageInc, just an idea. Just seems strange that you get cut up, thought maybe you pressed too hard, went against the grain at an odd angle or something. Been shaving myself for 18 years or so and can't think of the last time I cut myself even when using a disposable.

I may try the safety razor. I simply have no choice to switch out the blade that often. I have been doing it since I started shaving over 25 years ago. When I shaved every day a blade would last a week, switching to every other day is easier on my skin but the blade still lasts just a week. I know it sound like the I am being frivolous, but I simply just can't use a blade beyond that amount of time without ripping my face apart and having ingrown hairs all over the place.

Maybe it's the way you shave? I shave 5 days a week and probably go around 2 months on a blade. Even then I don't cut myself.

Fox News has been the no. 1 news agency going after this and i'm certain they'd skew the story no matter if the paster was black, white, asian, or latino.

Chris Wallace criticizes Fox & Friends for "two hours of Obama bashing" in which hosts "distort what Obama had to say"

Not a huge Wallace fan, but this was pretty good. He came on to promote his Sunday Fox News show during "Fox and Friends". It was supposed to be a nice little banter piece but instead Wallace came down on them and accused them of cutting the Obama quote after "typical white person" and not including the rest of the quote. F&F guys were speechless and looked to be pretty pissed. I guess afterwards one of them even walked off set he was so mad.

Edit: I am mistaken on that last sentence, Brian Kilmeade walked off the set because he was upset the other 2 wouldn't quit the Obama bashing not because he was upset with Wallace.

It appears the movies producer had a biologist featured in the movie kicked out of a pre-screening. They didn't realize that said biologist was with Richard Dawkins and let him in.

PZ Myers blog about it. His blog has various other links in about the event and the movie. Surprisingly it sounds like the movie sucks.

You definitely can't do it without homebrew. This is why all of us homebrew people tell everybody else to get it. biggrin

Wouldn't it be easier to just load it on the PC and play it with a mouse if for some strange reason I actually wanted to play the game again? Tongue

Go with the G (cheaper one). The other just seems to have more options for advanced stuff you would never use. I have the G and it works great and does everything you could want it to, meaning it will work with your PSP.

I have a Mach 3 and a Fusion. I use the Fusion more because I like the extra blade for around the nose area, but if I go a few days without saving the Mach 3 is much better. I guess CK might be right about the blades getting clogged.

Pete: how close is the shave? I would love to go back to electric but the shave has never been close enough. I have to have a close shave due to my job (military) and in the last 15 years none of the electrics I have tried were even close to a regular razor.

Tell me exactly what religion he belongs to. I'll wait.

Why? Who cares? But he is a Christian. Lot's of people just say they are Christian, I am not sure exactly what you are looking for here, he needs to be pigeon holed?. I get that you are trying to prove a point that we don't know anything about him really, but I am not sure your question is relevant. Asking his point on a political issue would make more sense.

Quote
Personally though, I don't think a man's religion is the measure by which he should be judged. I've listened to plenty of his speeches and I have yet to find anything of substance in them, and that goes beyond being Republican. Hard as it may seem to believe I am open to new ideas. I've yet to hear them from Obama.

No in his speeches he does talk a lot about just being a change from the current regime but without actually saying much, I would agree with that. But with a little research you can find out exactly where he stands on most issues. If you go to his website, his ideas are set out for you so you can see his viewpoints. He makes the speeches to win people over, and then expects them to do some research on their own.
2464  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Obama's Race Speech on: March 19, 2008, 12:36:30 AM
Thought it was a great speech myself, he successfully condemned his friends comments and praised the guy at the same time. The guy is an amazing speaker. I look forward to the time when we have a president who doesn't embarrass me every time he speaks (meaning any of the 3).

so you spray the stuff on your license plate, and it obscures part of your license, yet does nothing to hide the color or make of your car and leave a portion of the license plate left for the authorities to deduce that it in fact your car?  seriously, if someones using that stuff just to break traffic laws then the asshat deserves to be busted.

Well if it did work (on MB, it had no effect at all), how would they find you just off of make and color of your car? It would cost more just to have someone track you down. Since the whole purpose of these cameras to generate money (and deterrence), that would defeat the purpose.

Their stock dropped to $2 a share, so people who owned stock in BS lost a lot of money. He says that in that linked clip that he was talking about if you had a BS account, you didn't need to move your money because as you noted they will be taken over and you won't lose your accounts. If he was really saying you don't need to sell your stock, then yeah, he probably fucked up.

Doing research on the story it didn't seem to be that big of deal to anyone but bloggers who don't like the guy.

Edit: I am not expert on here and hopefully someone else here can explain it in more detail. I just thought the original post was a bit over the top. I kind of like Cramer, he tries to make a boring topic more entertaining. Plus I have a had few people recommend his books to me because he does know what he's talking about and breaks it down for you.

Anyone really listen to these people on tv instead of a good investment broker?

The guy is a former stock broker and hedge fund manager. He has been pretty successful and is probably as good as most other people out there at it. But the whole job is about making predictions and taking risks. It's just that in this case a lot of people don't like Cramer so they are jumping on his fuck up (if it was even a fuck up). A TV show host isn't tailoring his advice on the person though, so I doubt anyone goes out and acts on his advice without careful research of their own.

Anyway in this case Darkstar just posted something she found on Digg without even researching it herself, she just repeated the posters comments.

Show me an investor who hasn't made a bad prediction, if it was that easy we would all be millionaires. I have heard elsewhere that it was pretty good advice, it just didn't work out in the end.

And if you're sole form of advice of what to do with your money is a talk show host, you are a bigger fucking idiot then him.

Also Cramer claims that he was saying that you didn't need to take your money out of an account with BS, that he wasn't talking about stocks. The clip is taken out of context according to him.

Quote from: Laner on March 11, 2008, 04:28:11 PM

To address the OP, you're absolutely right.  I can't remember the last time a movie or TV show*didn't* portray a supposedly Christian character as some kind of twisted hyopcritical stereotype (your Meryl Streeps and such *relish* playing those characters).   Most non-Christians aren't going to notice it or be bothered by it, because that image has been so firmly entrenched that they think it's just a reflection of reality.

The sad thing is, the most genuine portrayal I can think of is Ned Flanders, and even that is a very distorted characterization.

Is it distorted or just not how you would like to see yourselves? Although, as someone else said, Ned Flanders is a very likable character.

I have racked my brain and searched the net trying to think of or find Hollywood examples that make Christians look bad, and besides the movie Saved! and maybe the Life of Brian, I can't think of any others. Not saying there aren't others, but I would like to know what inspired this thread. Documentaries like Jesus Camp and Pelosi's daughter's Friends of God let Christians speak for themselves. They made themselves look bad, so I am not sure if you can count them.

Christians in this country seem to think they are persecuted. I don't see it, they are the vast majority and pretty much control everything. Atheists are the most hated group in the US, but somehow the 5% of us do nothing but make Christians look bad. I understand on forums like this atheists outnumber Christians, but in the real world that is just not the case.

Quote
I was born in England moved to Canada when I was 10. Raised by a dad who use to tell me, Son when you're dead, you're dead!

All Western Christian countries. It's the same as saying as you grew up in Iraq and moved to Iran. You would be Muslim right now.

Aren't you being the very closed minded person you accuse Christians of being?

How is stating a fact being closed minded? You keep saying I am the defensive, closed minded person, but in the same breath you tell me that your religion is the only real choice.

Quote
You don't know me from Adam, pardon the pun. If you did know me you'd know that as a younger person if someone told me the way to go was Right Id go Left.
I'm not easily swayed by popular suggestions...subtle or other wise.

Well obviously you changed as you got older, since you joined up with the biggest religion on the continent. If you were just doing it to be different, you would of made a braver choice.

Quote
But still, what you're saying is just wrong. Its like saying because a woman gives birth to a child in Macdonald's he's going to grow up a hamburger.

Too simplistic sorry.

That analogy doesn't even make sense. Are you actually saying religion isn't determined by society? Even as an atheist in the US, when the idea of a god crosses my mind it's the Christian god. Society drills it into you from when you are little kid with Christmas, Easter etc. Even with non-religious parents all my friends were Christian, it's literally impossible to avoid it in this part of the world.

No you did it because you were brought up in North America where you were told repeatedly of a Christian god. Religion is determined for the most part by geography, you "choose" what you were taught. Sure there are exceptions, but the vast majority of religious people are taught it from a very young age by what their society dictates.

I can think of one movie that made fun of born again Christians (the one about born again high school kids, but I can't think of its name), and that was actually pretty realistic in the way born again acted when I was in HS. Kingdom of Heaven was supposed to be kind of historical so I am not sure that is a good example since religion was pretty corrupt in those days. As has been said, usually it's not mentioned in movies.

I get my perceptions of Christians by the ones I know and the ones I see in politics, it really has nothing to do with Hollywood.

And what do flaming liberals have to do with any of this? Most liberals are Christians or Jewish.
