I read an interview with Fedor after the fight where he said he came to the states for one more specific fight. Does anyone know what fight he is talking about? He seemed to imply that he had a specific fight/goal in mind and the loss didn't get in the way of that fight.

I haven't been able to see Fedor fight in a really long time, but when I did see him fight he looked unstoppable. He had more composure than I've ever seen in a fighter and would quickly find a weakness in his opponents. Has he still dominated or have any of his other fights made him look beatable?
People say he looked bad against rogers, but on replay he never took any damage and the cut he got was one that was reopened from a sparring session. But like Gellar said, if he isn't murdering someone from the opening bell people think he's lost a step.
He's still unstoppable...but people are wondering how much longer that will last.
I thought he looked good against Rogers. I would just love to see him in the UFC so we can finally get past the doubt over whether he is as good as people think he is. I think he would tear up Lesnar, but sadly will probably never see that fight.
The 3DS and all of the games announced for it are the star of the show for me. Snake Eater 3D, Ocarina of time, Final Fantasy, Ninja Gaiden. Plus the graphics are near or maybe even better than the PSP. This system is going to be huge.
I really enjoyed the season. I like Olyphant in just about anything he does, but making it a modern western really helps too. I really wish Clint Eastwood would direct Olyphant in a western playing the typical Eastwood roll. That would kick all kinds of ass.
Glad it worked out for you. It sounds like you got lucky though with the storm only affecting the vid card and not the motherboard and CPU. It could have been a lot worse. Plus you got a brand spanking new vid card out of the deal.
The chapter 11 boss was infinitely easier for me with Lightening, Fang, and Hope in the group.
That's funny that was my group for the whole game, except that boss fight. I had an easier time of it when I switched out Fang and Hope for Sazh and Vanille. I think they had access to some buffs and debuffs a little earlier than Hope and Fang get them, namely haste.
I'm pretty sure that Hope had haste when I fought this boss. Which may make the difference.
I fully expect Jack to be bitten by a radioactive spider, trained by Ra's Al Ghul in martial arts, given a power ring by an errant Green Lantern and reveal himself as the 2nd to last son of Krypton before the show's over.
If that happened not even Chuck Norris could stand toe to toe with Jack.
Also the official PS3 Bluetooth headset is pretty good and it has a charging dock that connects to the PS3. You can buy it alone, or with SOCOM or Tom Clancy's Endwar if you can still find those games in store. Otherwise just go with a $20 bluetooth and you should be good.
My fucking local abc affiliate messed up the airing of this. They are replaying it Saturday. The entire thing was all choppy and the screen would go entirely purple for seconds at a time. Someone at the Cleveland station is getting fired today for sure.
Loved, loved, Loved! Jack's assault on President Weasel's motorcade. That was so badass! Also, loved how they just showed the after effects of Jack's rampage thru the Russian Ambassador's office.
I hear that things will not end up well for Jack as the series ends, but having him cross the line into full revenge mode is writing genius. He's lost his moral compass (momentarily) and everything's going to hell.. and lots of people are paying for their immoral decisions (sorry President Taylor, you too). I'm totally pumped for the series finale!
This episode was awesome and IMO one of the best single episodes in series history. BUT I really wish they would have shown Jack killing those Russian guys. It would have been so bad ass. Oh well, seeing the after effect was still pretty sweet.
This series was actually more powerful for me than BoB was. The reason being that my grandfather (Who is still alive) was a Marine who served in the Pacific and took part in many of the battles shown in the series. Having this living person who I love and respect go through that really drove home the horror that our forefathers went through. I have always respected my grandfather's service, but this series really put it at a whole new level, and it makes me question whether or not I could do what he did. Bob wasn't able to do that for me as much, I think mostly because I never had a person close to me who participated in the European theater, so I couldn't relate to is as much.
Having the ability to live through something like that and then once it's all over come home and actually be a productive part of society truly is amazing to me. Watching Sledge's struggles once he got back really drove that home.
Russell's expects the jury to not have any feelings. He thinks they should respect his game because he is the best at targeting another player and getting them voted out. The problem is that he was the only one in that final 12 who can put his feelings aside and say who played the best strategically. Everyone else clearly wanted to vote for the person who played the cleanest game. Which definitely wasn't Russell.
Those pics are impressive (and your daughter is adorable )
Thank you, sir!

I started using Livestrong.com, it has a very easy to use online calorie counter that records everything you eat and has a fitness aspect to put in how much exercise you do.
I've tried using several different calorie counters and exercise trackers, but I never have the patience to keep up with them.
Since the Insanity meal guide is set up in chunks of equal caloric amounts per meal, I've gotten pretty good at guesstimating the amount of calories in my meals.
Nice job on getting rid of the man boobs. But I think the weight loss is even more noticeable in your face and overall head shape. You look much better without the extra weight up there. You should think about starting to lift weights, it will tone your body and give you a better shape. even a light 30 minute workout targeting the major muscle groups three times a week will give you noticable results within a month or two.
So they're going with Hector Hammond as the villain? Sinestro is in the film, so I guess he's still in the Corps and doesn't go rogue until the sequel. I've always felt the poor guy was doomed to super villainy from the beginning, what with that evil, little, moustache, and being named "Sinestro". It's kinda like being stuck with the name "Von Doom".
Pretty happy to hear that my favorite Lantern, Kilowog, is going to make an appearance. We just don't see enough alien warthog-looking Galactic Drill Instructors these days.
I have a hard time believing that Hector Hammond will be the main villain. Side villain maybe, but he's not strong enough a character to get main bad guy billing. That would be like making the Toymaster the main villain in a Superman movie. Lame.

I hate to ask, but is there any way to equate that to Wow level time?
I would say they are about the same. LotRO used to take longer, but Turbine really revamped the starting areas through lvl 30 to make it easier and smoother to lvl up. The problem I see you running into is that not all of the skirmishes open up a lvl 30. You have to reach certain lvls to unlock most skirmishes, but some also require you to complete certain quests. But, if memory serves three of them do open up at lvl 30.
