I would rate FSM just behind 40 Year Old Virgin. It may not have been filled with gut-busting howls, but I laughed plenty throughout and Segal and Kunis didn't come off like the typical Rom-Com leads.

Unless there is a famous Kristen Bell aside from the one from Veronica Mars/Heroes/Forgetting Sarah Marshall...no, it is not.

It's one thing to be a fair-weather fan, it's another to be an obnoxious fair weather fan. I could care less about the Orlando Magic most seasons, but if they do good I'll start watching the games and cheering for them. The only catch is I don't pretend to be an expert, and if people ask me if I am a fan I usually respond with, "well, no, not really."

I was at a bar Saturday night and the replay of the Magic game came on. I clapped when I saw that they won, and a guy standing in front of me wearing a suit turned around and asked if I was a fan. I started with the "um well..." but before I could start he produced two tickets and said "here, I work in PR for the Magic, take these and thanks for the support."  icon_biggrin

You should have thrown them in his face and said "I am NOT a fan!" Jeez, no integrity slywink.

Although I'm conflicted as to why they just don't travel back to Kobol or New Caprica and make one of those their home. I do realize they still have Cylons chasing them, but the planets are habitable - so they do have other places to go.

Well, they still have a large fleet of Cylon after them, and they (the cylon) know about those 2 places, so the fleet probably wants to stay hidden.

They didn't have the technology to cure cancer.  I guess the BSG universe developed their tech in odd ways, but that's how things go.  All tech doesn't just develop equally at the same time.  You'd be amazed if you read up on the history of technological advancement and how certain events led to technologies being produced.

I'm not expecting them to have a cure for cancer. It seems to me that the technology for space travel, building ships and the electronics involved would complement the technology for limb replacement. At least more than a metal peg.

Maybe they did, but since Galactica was about to be decomissioned prior to the Cylon attack, perhaps all of their advanced medical supplies were already off-ship.

Also a Bond villain.  And was in a Planet of the Apes movie.  And a generally awesome dude.

Sad to see him go.

When was he a Bond villain? I can't find it on his IMDb page.

I'm sad that he's gone, but I know that he's had some pretty big health problems for quite a while now, so at least he isn't in pain any more.

So you bought her an iPod,

No, I didn't buy it. And I honestly don't remember why she ended up abandoning it. I think she did load songs onto it at some point, so maybe she did use iTunes. My main beef was buying crippled music files from the Apple store.

You can put all of your music on ITunes (the app) very easily without ever touching Itunes (the store).

From what they told me about the AF and officers if you are not in Tactical Air or SAC you are a second or third class citizen.

I'm not trying to dog on you or anything, but I don't even know what that means. Not to mention that SAC hasn't existed since the early '90s.

It looks like you are swimming in the Hudson river and your skin isn't melting off or you don't have broken glass and hypodermic needles in you. Furthermore, if it is the north Hudson, then there should be at least one human body on the shore.  slywink

I consider it stealing if a person keeps or takes something for which the person didn't pay.

Ever browse the forums at work?

You can provide endless examples of many different situations; the fact remains that in the above example, the person went to the store to purchase a system and game and ended up only paying for the system. Let's put it to the "mom" test: what would your mom say if you were to tell her that you did this? I know what mine would say. Is he as bad as a bank robber or someone of that ilk? I'd say no, but taking what one hasn't paid for is theft in my book.

For the record, I am allowed to surf the net at work.

That's an awesome excuse.

On an unrelated note, I herebly forswear gaming forever and will never fill the coffers of these helpers of Satan; I have no desire to ever purchase a game again. I'll just pirate them. That way, it's a victimless crime!
