2641  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Awesome Video - If it's Real! on: January 01, 2008, 09:37:07 PM
Yeah that's a pretty cool video (search Youtube for "Nike soccer" or "Joga Bonito", there are a few good ones out there). Supposedly Nike admitted that it was fake, but I never saw anything official. Ronaldinho is really good (at least he used to be, he likes to party too much nowadays), but I doubt he is that good, so I would vote fake which seemed to be the general consensus when I first saw it a couple of years ago.

Quote from: Lee on December 30, 2007, 12:18:58 AM

Sure ATB, but God wanted Bush to be president, so we expected a little bit more from him. slywink

Source?

He didn't actually say it directly, but it has been no secret that he thinks God intervenes in the world, implying that God is on his side. He did say that God wanted him to run for president.

Quote
Stephen Mansfield, author of The Faith of George W. Bush, goes on to say: "Not long after, Bush called James Robison (a prominent minister) and told him, 'I've heard the call. I believe God wants me to run for President.' " Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention heard Bush say something similar: "Among the things he said to us was: I believe that God wants me to be president, but if that doesn't happen, it's OK.' "

Or here:

Quote
Bush said to James Robinson: 'I feel like God wants me to run for President. I can't explain it, but I sense my country is going to need me. Something is going to happen... I know it won't be easy on me or my family, but God wants me to do it.'

Just do a search for Bush mandate from god and you get a ton of hits for things Bush has said. A lot of them implying that he thinks God choose him.

Edit: Canuck beat me to it. There is a whole book about it actually

GMail offers free POP3 access with Outlook, I like it just for that.

As far as junkmail Hotmail and Gmail seem equal to me, both very good. Now my Yahoo account gets dozens of junk emails a day.

What should we have done instead?

I don't know what he should have done, but it is very hypocritical. We justify Iraq by saying we had to get rid of a dictator and spread democracy, yet we ignore other countries when it suits us (not that Musharraf compares to Saddam). If we cared about democracy and human rights we would be playing a role in Africa instead of a blind eye with the occasional comment to condemn the violence.

An Alton Brown Saltcellar

That's awesome, I have been wanting one of those forever but never found one I liked (not that I found many). I didn't know Alton Brown sold stuff, off to go buy one.

Edit: Thanks to Arkon I got to looking around Alton's site and ended up with one of these too:



Can't wait to try it out, if I like that angled handle I may have to replace my Global Chef knife too.

I bought myself way too many Xmas presents this year.

Is X3 worth getting for $10?

I was going to get it, but figured I would try the demo first just to make sure. I couldn't run the demo on Vista because it said I need to be logged on as the administrator, but I already was. So if you get it, you might want to see if you get the demo to run first.
2652  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: So, what did you get for Christmas? on: December 24, 2007, 05:18:09 AM
Congrats Ken, would love to hear impressions after you have it a bit longer.

I did pretty good this year (We had Xmas last weekend when I went home early to avoid the rush).

I got:
Arsenal jersey
Arsenal scarf
Bristol City jersey
Indian cookbook
mandoline
2653  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Merry Christmas (Yes I said Christmas, so sue me) on: December 24, 2007, 04:58:37 AM
Who has told you not to say Merry Xmas Ken? I can see it if you were in public service, because you don't know who you are talking to really. I always figured this war on Xmas is something invented by Bill OReilly and the press and in reality doesn't really exist. Sure there has been some silly objections to trees and such, but I don't think the vast majority of people could care less. Even as an atheist I have no problem with it at all, Christmas doesn't have to be about religion, it can be about family, giving, or anything else you want it to be.

Not really, untaken ones are $35 at register.com

Unless it's taken, which seems to be your problem, then you have to pay the owner (some strange Spanish company in your case) more money.

My guidance, come up with a new name that isn't taken. Tongue

Whether Jeff Gerstmann was or wasn't dismissed because of his review of this game, the fact is I've now been censored from providing a review. I'm done with them!

To be fair it's because people are trashing it just because of what happened.

Your credit card expiring doesn't help. Mine expired and then one day I turned on my 360 for the first time and I couldn't do anything. The only option was to renew my subscription. There is a way to revert to silver, but it looked like a pain in the ass so I just renewed gold. MS makes the process a pain in the ass and suckers like me fall for it.

Here's another one.


Grabbed these off a Russian LJ page. Babelfish translated the only text there as "House of Tunnel".

All praise to google.

A quote from one of the sites: "This extraordinary structure on Montrose Boulevard took motorists by surprise. A pair of artists, Dan Havel and Dean Ruck was responsible for this house installation. The two wooden buildings were to be replaced by a new built project so the few months before the demolition, they made this into an architectonic installation."

HAH!  I will have to go by there at lunch Monday.  My girlfriend a few years ago used to live right up the way from that place.

It sounds like it isn't there anymore, the building were up for destruction at the time it says.
2674  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Some things are a bit ridiculous if you stop and think about them on: November 25, 2007, 02:18:12 AM
Kind of flawed logic. We may be waterproof, but walking around rain soaked would severely lower our immune system. Why do you think you are cold and miserable when you are out in the rain? Your body is telling you that it doesn't like the conditions. Water extracts heat for your body so you are constantly using energy to keep warm.

As far as your refrigerator logic, start putting all your food outside instead, have fun with that.

These kind of quizs really don't mean much. In the reality of the situation your thinking would be much different than how it is to just be sitting here in front of a screen. You can say you would smoother the baby all you want, but if it really came down to it, I don't think any of us would know how we would react.

I was hoping for much more of an interesting quiz coming from ATB. Abortion, capital punishment issues or something juicy. smile

I just know that when people do stay respectful, some of the most interesting discussion can come out of these kinds of subjects, even if at the end nobody has convinced the other side to defect.

When has one side EVER convinced the other side when it comes to politics or religion?

That's not really the point. It's fun to argue sometimes, and you often learn more about other's ideas and are forced to research your own beliefs more in order to argue them. A Christian will never convert me but they can give me stuff to think about and force me to think outside of the way I currently think. You learn from discussing/debating opposite viewpoints, that is the point.
