Well I'll be. After a quick Googling I've discovered that they were actual ribs!

Obscenely expensive from what I see, though. You can go to an actual BBQ place and get a half rack for almost the same price.

Yeah, they were VERY good to me, but because of the price I couldn't get them often.. They were good for a quick rib fix.. not having to go out anywhere and being able to get them quick was the hook..

Several years ago, Burger King had a dollar menu with some unusual items on it, including sourdough burgers and some sort of taco-like thing.  I really liked them both, and then they took them away frown  At least they brought back icees.
I remember the sourdough burgers and I liked them. I REALLY liked the BK ribs they had for a little while. They were pricey, but tasted good.

Went to see The Winter Soldier this afternoon on IMAX 3D...awesome movie that is easily one of the top Marvel films so far, right up there with Ironman and The Avengers. I think the coolest thing is that it really raises a lot of questions about what will happen in future Marvel films, and might even have a major impact on the Agents of SHIELD tv show. I love the way that Marvel is tying all their stories together...great stuff!
Spoiler for Hiden:
I think next weeks episode takes place during the end of the movie. This past weeks takes place before the movie, right to the end of the episode which sounded like it takes place at the start of the end of the movie.show spoiler maybe..
Spoiler for Hiden:
I would guess that the clairivoient is the AI from the movie

Spoiler for Hiden:
Really? I was thinking Sitwell or Hand, though Sitwell's death in the film seems to take the oomf out of that particular reveal. I think we're definitely going to see that a previously established character in the show will end up being Hydra, though
Spoiler for Hiden:
The reason I am saying the AI is that it was a big part of project insight which was basically depicting the future of someone through the data of their lives. That's how they decided who to kill in the movie and in the show Skye seems to uncover that the clairvoyant is using SHIELD data to predict their movements..

NetGear, Linksys (Cisco), and Asus and good brands.
Get wireless N. Dual Bands can be useful if you have interference, but then you need a dual band adapter for your device, so, regular N is usually good enough unless you get a REALLY good deal and want to prepare for a possible future upgrade.
Most are easy to install. Sometimes programming them to get the best setup can be a little daunting to someone who hasn't done it before, but basic setup is pretty easy.

Quote from: hepcat on April 01, 2014, 06:08:46 PM

From the constant look of discomfort on Rick's face throughout the episode, I'm guessing he's kiestered one of the rifles....

Thought it was a good episode over all.  I really hope the cannibalism hints are just red herrings though.  They spent an awful lot of time during that episode emphasizing just how far some would go for their loved ones...or to survive.  I'd like to see Terminus revealed as a community like Rick's, but one that was attacked so ruthlessly or so often that they eventually lost their humanity and now they're of the "strike first, ask questions later" kind.  The only thing that wouldn't work in that scenario is the calls for recruits they send out.  Unless they're operating under the belief that they need to exterminate everyone in order to be safe.
I think the "calls for recruits" is more of food delivery/recruit. I would suspect that some people are actually recruited.

I thought that at first, but the path didn't make a lot of sense.
Not sure what you mean? The path was pretty obviously marked with the letter A.. Hence my counter strike reference.

Terminous is just wrong. Where are the guards, where are the defenses? They just walked right on in. I'm betting on cannibals with a whole ton of hidden firepower.

That's exactly what I said when the episode ended. Look at all the vegetables and the big grill. Wait - where's the MEAT ... Cannibals.
Even my wife realized this! This was probably the most unrealistic thing I've seen in a while on this show.

As far as I know, zero chance of this happening. You have to pay an unsubsidized price for a new phone or give up the unlimited data.
This.... I've tried myself. In fact, I have heard of cases where if you buy a full priced 4G phone, they pull you off because the unlimited plan was supposedly 3G only.

What do you need a manual for? Most games don't have one (a real one) these days anyway.

So sue me, I like to read manuals Roll Eyes. Back in my day, the manuals were HUGE!!! Of course, they were on stone so even a GTAV size manual weighed more than Fred Flintstone's car. And don't get me started on how long it took to load a program from a cassette...
Ahh. Good old load"*",8,1
I am also disappointed in the manuals now adays.. Granted, you probably don't need them as much for most fps or 3rd person games, and there aren't any real simulator games.. although ARMA could use a good manual.. I still have my Falcon 4.0 binder somewhere...

There are obviously some kind of power issues but then some electronics work, so not an EMP like event, so why don't the radios work? Also sounds like some kind of time dilation going on as well.

Let me elaborate... I "think" I understand the concept of the ledger system, but I still don't "get" what a bitcoin is or how it has value. Or the mining stuff I hear about..
Also, I don't see how the security works.. If the universal ledger says we each have 100 bitcoins, at some point I would earn more bitcoins and that would be a single entry until it propagates... Sort of like DNS changes. With DNS changes they start on one server until they spread to the universal DNS "ledger.

Banshee, Bates Motel, The Americans, Cougar Town, The Following - looking forward to all of these!

Intelligence - it's Sawyer with a Chuck implant!

Helix - Ron Moore's new show, viruses, black goop, gonna give it a chance


So far Cougar Town, Banshee and The Following are back and have not disappointed. 

I was surprised by how much I like Intelligence, I had originally decided to pass.  It's nothing too far off a conventional procedural blended with Chuck, but thus far I like how they've used the chip, particularly the 3D rendering sequences.  Also it doesn't hurt that in the short amount of episodes they've already had two guest stars from Lost which of course appeals to my pathetic nostalgic sensibilities.

Helix has also been great.  Even though I'm not particularly fond of anyone in the cast (Rocketman is looking terribly old and wrinkly) and some of the "surprises" have been pretty obvious, the creepy/gory intensity has kept me looking forward to each upcoming episode.  Definitely looking forward to future episodes when 7 of 9 joins the cast.  I really have no idea how they are going to keep the show moving forward when they keep infecting and killing off characters, but I'm excited to see where it goes.
Just saw the 1st and 2nd show of Helix last night and.... I'm not sure yet... I had recorded the limited commercial version of the two episodes (recorded back to back and total of 1.5 hours with the few commercials they had..(WOW 1/2 an hour of commercial for 2 hours of show... never realized that)).. Anyway, with that viewing, I had to force myself to watch the last 1/2 hour... Usually if I am into a show, I have to force myself to stop so I can get some sleep.. I have 2 more episodes recorded, so I will watch them, but if the bug doesn't catch me  paranoid I'll be out...
