Saturday dude. The only one that went in there today was me. You can't tell the stuff I moved around? I guess we will need to have a contest to see who can spot stuff as it moves.

It looks like the black and brown chairs have been moved. Still no people in the picture...

If a strong 3rd party had run for President this year, they might have won the whole thing.

Ron Paul got 3% running as a Republican. Why would he or anyone else have done any better as a 3rd Party candidate? This is still a two party country fighting over which side of the Titanic they sit on.

maybe they coluld draw her back if they say Jin might still be alive.  Speaking of which, anyone have thoughts on that?  This was pretty much what I'd expected, that it would appear he most likely dies, but you don't actually see it so there's always the chance he jumped off the boat and gets rescued by the guys on the raft, or was teleported off with the island.

That's what I'm thinking. Nobody is dead on this show even if their headless corpse is being eaten by wild rabbits.

If I record a show, I'm tempted to say "Well, I can watch it anytime" which means sometimes weeks/months/never.

So I watched Lost live in order to force myself to pay attention.

But now, I want to watch it again.

I find it ironic as the image clearly attests to the power that Christ had. He certainly could have called forth a legion of angels to remove him from the cross.  Also, had he not so love the world, he could have clapped and in the process of clapping snuffed out the entire universe- including those who would blaspheme him with  mornic pictures presented in a juvenile attempt at humor.  I'm just sayin.

The mythology states that he had to die in the most gruesome way possible in order to maximize the sacrifice he was making because he loved you and wanted to die for your sins. Don't feel guilty about it though. He obviously knew the Judas would betray him and could have avoided the whole thing. Then the world would have missed out on 2000 years of Christianity.

and

the fact that the entire first page of Search hits had websites all using the same spelling as my search word made me go with the original spelling.

I'm not usually a stickler for spelling, but that is particularly lame.

My point being, Ike, I am very conscientious of my spelling. Between the internal Firefox spell check, this Forum's spell check, dictionary.com, Google and copying my text into Outlook to run spell check I try and at least have my spelling correct even if no one cares about the content. I don't see what is particularly lame about a single misspelled word.

In answer to your question, however, I think that there has to be an actual explicit agreement not to date other people.  I think that most people accept that if you're "just dating" you are allowed to date more than one person.

4941  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Dating etiquette (when to go exclusive) on: May 29, 2008, 09:03:19 PM
You read stories about guys that have secret lives being married to multiple women and even managing multiple families. That's obviously someone that doesn't understand the concept of exclusivity. The other side of the extreme is to only date 1 person at a time from the very beginning. I have always leaned more towards this latter position both from personal standards and lack of opportunity to double up. Recently (as of last night paranoid) I found myself getting involved with a second woman while still actively involved in the early stages of dating someone else. Since I hardly ever find myself in this situation I am trying to figure out when its considered cheating and when I should choose one to go exclusive with. I suppose its not cheating unless the other person thinks that you're an exclusive couple?

What are your standards for exclusivity?

What kind of requirements do you have?  If your participants trust you, you could just use a spreadsheet and a random number generator.

Have each spreadsheet row correspond to a ticket, so if they have 10 tickets they get 10 rows.

It sounds like this will work. I found this RNG and the spreadsheet row #'s will cover the ticket total. Thanks for the input.

Anyone know if there is a program or website that I can use to hold a virtual raffle? I've got around 100 people with various amounts of contest points that are worth 1 raffle ticket each. These 100 people are all over the country so I can't hand out physical tickets with the winner being picked out of a hat. I need a virtual way to do the drawing.

As a filmmaker, I even look forward to the day we might by-pass those shady studios and distributors and bring you the goods straight to you home on release day.

Maybe, but there is still something about going to a movie theater and getting the crowd dynamic involved in a great movie. Besides, not everyone can have a PeteRock sized HDTV. Some of us still live in the stone age of CRT, at least until the divorce mortgage is paid off.

"I'm not happy about the way the Chinese are treating the Tibetans because I don't think anyone should be unkind to anyone else," Stone said Thursday during a Cannes Film Festival red-carpet interview with Hong Kong's Cable Entertainment News. "And then this earthquake and all this stuff happened, and then I thought, is that karma? When you're not nice that the bad things happen to you?"

Is this the New Age response to the Christian Right blaming every natural disaster on sinners and gays?

Srsly. Spend the money combating things important

What "important thing" would NASA's $14B annual budget solve that outweighs surrendering manned space capability to the Russians and Chinese?

Think of the children!

On a more serious note, how about if NASA stops charging companies less than it actually costs to launch their statellites into space. If we weren't subsidizing these companies they would have to pay market rates and private companies would be able to compete against NASA. This would open up space operations into the private market.

Recently Moliere suggested a handful of films and I should receive them sometime next week from BestBuy.com (You Move You Die, Stickmen, and The Salton Sea).  I am hoping others can share some suggestions that I may have missed, or may not even know about.  They don't have to be critically acclaimed or fit within any particular genre (as made apparent by my own list), and I'm open to all sorts of suggestions.  I'm mainly just looking for lesser-known, quality films no one has heard of.
Besides repeating the 3 above I will include these on my list:

Christian Bale in The Machinist about a man that hasn't slept in a year. He went from 180 lbs to 120 lbs for the role and then had to gain it back in time for Batman Begins.

Swing Kids about teenagers not respecting the authoritah of the Nazis by dancing to illegal music.

Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead is a classic with a ton of great scenes and actors.

Requiem for a Dream

Hard Eight or "Sydney" for all you non-Americans

Even Money a great movie about gambling addictions

The Legend of 1900 Tim Roth plays a piano prodigy that has lived his entire life on a cruise ship.
