Hypothetically speaking, if I were to legally change my name to ADAM BALDWIN, could I talk about myself in this thread?

Yes, because you would be honoring the threads name sake.

Okay, I'm back. 

So...how are things everyone?

Now that is dedication.

What are the rules on the inclusion of stories/news on Baldwins that are NOT Adam based?  Would something about Stephen Baldwin be acceptable, or would it result in a perma ban, temporary suspsension or a groin based blow administered with some type of special groin punishment device?

Any Baldwin not named ADAM BALDWIN, will result in a groin based blow at a very minimum. For that reason CeeKay should prepare for a kick to the nads.

This is the official ADAM BALDWIN thread. It was unanimously decided that GT is seriously in need of an entire thread devoted solely to ADAM BALDWIN. Within this thread you can feel free to discuss ADAM's roles in classics like Firefly, Chuck, Full Metal Jacket, Independence Day and even that time you saw a look-a-like (or perhaps the real thing) at Disney World. You can also post HAWT pictures of ADAM and hopefully some animated giffs. The only thing I ask is that you do not derail the topic.

The PTB have decided that Sara Connor Chronicles needs to be up against the CBS comedy block and the Chuck season premiere next week.  I see them losing that battle for my attention.  I can record two blocks.  Adam Baldwin and Neil Patrick Harris will be getting my time.

NPH 4 teh win.

you should start a new thread about it!

If I did it would probably be GTs first thread devoted entirely to Adam Baldwin. Now that would be something. We could talk about Firefly, Chuck and Full Metal Jacket all in one thread.  icon_twisted

Going back to the narrators is what made it so funny!

What made it funny was the actors performing the drunk narrator's gibberish. Instead of switching back to the drunk narrator they should have had the actors performing the entire time.

I thought it could have been a lot funnier. They shouldn't have kept going back to the drunk narrator. It broke up the perception that the actors were creating.

No, none of the 40GB versions have backward compatibility.  The 60GB version has hardware BC, and the old 80GB version has software BC (which supports less games than hardware BC).  The 80GB version that is now being released has no BC. It's very frustrating for people contemplating a purchase in the near future (like myself) who want BC.

I'm cranky today, so you get my English lesson, Teggy.

Less is used when you're talking about an unquantifiable amount.  For example, "Less Filling."

Fewer is used when the quantity can be defined with a number.  For example, "Fewer calories"  or "Fewer games."

There is a site to check compatibility (http://www.us.playstation.com/Support/CompatibleStatus), but, yeah, you're out of luck with the 40GB.

Ju just gawt pwned.

I play on the 37" Sharp Aquos 1080p and I also use it on a 52" Mitsubishi 1080i. It definitely looks better on the 37" because the jaggies are much smaller.

The biggest problem with a lot of Wii games is the lack of anti aliasing, and the bigger the screen, the bigger the jaggy.

My wife works for a very large Gas transportation company and she called me this morning telling me that the CEO of the company sent out an email to the entire company today telling them to fill up at lunch time because prices are going up. He blamed it on Ike, but apparently the company was told not to deliver any more gas to stations today (which is extremely abnormal). This company is located in Ohio, but delivers all over the US.

My PS3 blew up on me just as I was finishing that fight and watching the cutscene and I lost everything on my Hd. I've had the PS3 back for about a month now but I can't bring myself to play all the way through the game again so soon. So does anyone have a save game they can email me?

My guess is that the sentence they are talking about is just from the criminal judge. More than likely there will also be a Juvenile judge in charge of a Dependency, Neglect and Abuse case. This judge will have the power to determine this guys ability to parent and potentially remove the children from his care.

Speaking of origins, is it any good?  The shots I have seen seem to be a major step backwards graphics-wise from previous games, especially number 3.   And is it more action or puzzle oriented?

1. Obama is one slick dude. Much like Bill Clinton. Much more slick and presentable than McCain.
He's a cool guy, no doubt. Unfortunately his "slickness" didn't help him to win (any?) debates vs. Hill-dog.

2. Challenging someone to town hall meetings/debates and actually winning those debates/meetings are two different things.
This is a presidential race. Do you really think McCain would challenge Obama to 10 town-hall debates if he didn't think that would give him a huge advantage?

Of course McCain thinks he will win, but thinking you will win and actually winning is a different thing. In the end we will know which one of us is right about their debating skills in a couple of months.

McCain doesn't seem to be too good talking on his feet. I can't wait to watch the debates for this reason alone. I think Obama is going to smoke him in the debates and from there the polls will shift to Obama. Just my opinion though.

I don't think you are wrong in the slightest.  I think that he's going to make a fool out of himself and come out looking like a bitter old crazy dude.
I think you two apparently haven't been paying close attention to the campaigns.

One: Obama is not a very good debater. Don't believe me? See here, here, here, here, etc (I could list another 20) or just watch his debates where he performed so poorly.

And Two: McCain challenged Obama to *10* town-hall style debates. You really think he's not good speaking on his feet?

No clue what happened in the above interview. McCain certainly can be gruff at times. But don't go overboard in your analysis here slywink.

Actually, with all the graphic grumbling, I thought it was the Wii version you were describing, too.

Yeah me too, especially since one of my biggest problems with the Wii is the seeming lack of anti-aliasing in most games. You would think with the extra horse power over the Cube and PS2, that the developers would find a way to enable anti-aliasing for Wii games, especially since most games are being developed along with the PS2 versions. Last years TW looked ok, but the aliasing was abundant.
