15687  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Thoughts on chiropractors? on: June 15, 2006, 08:53:38 PM
My chiro is a neurology chiropractor; he seems very knowledgeable and not at all like a ducks vocabulary.

He's explained everything he's doing, and why. The neurology of chiropractic medicine deals with the neural pathways, and the reason one adjusts the cervical spine is to reduce pinching of the data pathways. This improves muscular balance which in turn improves posture and reduces risk of injury. As he explained my thoratic spine injury, I had 6 outta 10 show up for work when I needed 10 outta 10. (doing heavy weight squats when I felt a nasty "click"... I wasn't even at my max weight).

He also measured my neural blind spots; one of the ways to test is by finding the blind spot by moving a colored dot from the center of a piece of paper along the X axis. The paper needs to be ~11 inches away from your face. The blind spot should be the size of a nickel and it should be round... mine were the size of an egg (on each side) and not symmetrical.
15688  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Dateline's Child Predator Shows- Entrapment? on: June 15, 2006, 02:49:46 PM
First- to clarify "entrapment" - If you put 1,000,000 in a suitcase on a subway seat, make sure the target finds out, and then leave it; when they grab it you arrest them for theft you have effectively entrapped them.

Here in Winnipeg, the police will set up John sting operations, where police women pose as prostitutes and wait for the johns to solicit for sexual favors. Prostitution itself is not illegal; only solicitation and gains from prostitution (pimping) are. Is that entrapment? No. They don't send these women into nightclubs, lure men to hotel rooms and then hit them up for money. The men have sought THEM out.

See, I have a history with a similar situation. I haven't watched the show, however I get the gist of it.

I at one point used a phone dating service (a buddy wanted a free month; he referred me and paid for 1/2 of my hour of service). The service explicitly requires all men and women to be of legal age ( 18 ). I met a girl on the system, and we met at what she claimed to be her apartment. She wasn't my type but I had come from a workout and was sore; she offered me a back massage. I said sure, so she told me to take my shirt off and lie down.

I happily obliged and she left the room. She came back with nothing but panties on and some baby-oil. I pulled the brakes on this right away, and left. I didn't talk to her again.

About a week later I get a call from an irate mother. She claimed to be this girls mother, and that what had I done with her? She had run away from home (the appt.) and was yelling at me that she was under age (16 or 17, IIRC .. I was 18 at the time) and she would sick the police on me. She got my number from her notepad, and knew we met on the phone system.

I blankly stated that I had only seen her once, nothing happened, and the requirements of the system is that she be 18 and that is how we met. She started yelling at me, and I politely told her to fuck off, and then hung up. Never heard from them since.

She could have been telling the truth; it was up to her as a parent to protect her child. It doesn't sound like (if she was legit) that she knew how to get her child to be honest with her. On the flipside, she might have been wanting to use that situation to extort money / whatever from me. At that time the current age of consent is 14 (which means a parent can't arbitrarily charge an adult with statutory rape even if the minor was shown to be consenting).

The problem with most of the non-physical meeting services out there is that they offer free services with little-to-no screening for women, just to bring the men in. I don't know how these chat services work, but I'd say that it's pretty much a crapshoot as to who or what you're going to get.

Should I ever use the internet to hunt down a relationship, you can BET I'm keeping a log to cover my bacon. I'm sure this show has probably caught at least one person who has been demonized by the show taking their communication out of context.

Hell, the papers rarely get a story 100%; do you think a sensationalized media program like this is going to carry itself in any manner that doesn't boost ratings?

I'm pretty sure you and JHK play like this :

[ JHK hides behind dumpster at spawn, and then goes to get a sandwich ]
MM  - sure dear. YOU ALL DIE!!!!!
[ 400 rounds left ]
[ 300 rounds left ]
[ 200 rounds left ]
[ 100 rounds left ]
[ MM is out of rounds, and is shot trying to get to ammo point ]
[ JHK finishes sandwich, comes back and kills the last 2 terrorists easily; they're the ones hiding behind the only building left standing ]

For some reason they don't like you and your jungle-saw. The only thing more accurate than the enemy fire is your friendly fire. biggrin That's not to say you aim at the team; it's a lack of our ability to find cover fast enough... slywink

I own the entire G1 DVD set. I've watched 25% of it; it IS still good. It's not as bad as watching AirWolf and thinking you must have been one of those retarded kids that somehow missed the cut for wearing a hockey helmet 24/7.

The contents of the season 1 / 2 DVDs and the Movie are all very good/evil, whereas the 3-4 series focussed more on the space in between. People were changing sides, there were non-partisan groups etc.

Oh, and seasons 1 and 2 spent most of the time with buildup, starscream fuckup, and then retreat. biggrin It really is no wonder he got iced in the movie; he had 2 years of failure accountable to him.

As to the BeastWars / Beast Machines stories, I really enjoyed both. The BeastWars (Beasties in Canada, IIRC) took a while to win me over; I really enjoyed that there was significant change and consequence to actions.

the preview was pathetic. It covered more about things like windows games (yuck) than it did on control panels and basic interface.

For one, you can now see your drive performance from the manage system option ( it runs an io test and you get to see drive performance). I've only played with the 32bit for an hour or two.. MAYBE.

500 hours? Unlikely.

"Troops: stop, drop altitute, reverse direction and speed up!"

I'm running it; it's nice. The difference between beta2 of XP and RC2 is significant; I expect the final product to be different as well. This OS should run faster and smoother, and take advantage of multi-core processors (such as mine). It would be nice if they could have integrated 32bit architecture into the 64bit  version; I only have the 32bit version installed right now. I'll be getting the 64bit version sometime next week and I'll post my findings.

(We have TechNet enterprise at work; this gives us beta versions to play with).

If you guys want a taste of the IE version, go to and install the 7.0 beta 2. It's nice, and I've had almost no issue with site compatibility.

On page 7 they talk about protected mode; this does not exist for the IE7 beta on XP... this may be one of the BIG reasons Vista is being rolled out. It seems small, but it's quite significant. Also note that the local zone does NOT have protected mode.
