It will cut down on air travel therefore saving gas. Win Win!

The threat of anyone trying to take over a airplane is now moot since 911. Most passengers know that there is no more little divertion of their flight that they think they can survive.

You guys just need to find a moderator for this forum who enjoys political/religious discourse and debate, specifically of the sort that invariably happens on a political forum. It's pretty clear that the current mods do not. I can't imagine the volume of reports is so much that one who is well versed in this forum would be overwhelmed.

There is only one quick fix and that is 3rd world war.

We would have that oil right now if we let them drill back in 2000 when it was brought up.

If the nuclear power plants offered 50% reduction to all homes in a 5 mile radius people would be bidding to have them.

The first time I died in DOD I was like "What the fuck my PC just crashed. The screen went out" Then i hit a key and respawned. I was so use to seeing my dead body when dieing in other games that it took me by suprise. Sniping was such fun in that game. icon_twisted

Im loving TF2 but I seem to die so fast its just a big die/run back/die/run back kinda deal. Its as if no matter what class I play I have no hit points. Doesn't feel anything like all the other TFs I played.

Sound like you need to know when to pull back for health. If your hurt it's better for the team to miss you for 5 seconds then have you spawn back at the start and wait 20 second to get back to the fight. With me its kill/kill/heal/kill/heal/kill/die. I get pissed if I don't make 3 kills to one death.

My favorite suggestion about how this episode could have ended better in say a crossover sci fi twist - they land on Earth and are greeted by Captain Picard.

I was thinking more of the head of the Statue of Liberty or the burnt out remains of NYC.  Do we know when they are in earths history?

Raise ticket prices $15 and offer a $15 "light traveler discount" for people who travel without check-ins.  Same effect, less customer anger, fewer customers switching to Jet Blue to avoid being nickel and dimed.

Charging less money isn't going to help them make more money.  Business travelers like myself tend to never check bags and that is the majority of their customers.  So, your solution has the airlines making less money than they were already and yet gas prices are raising their costs.

 saywhat

I guess my scheme works great if it convinced you that the airlines would make less money.

Old ticket price: $200

For a passenger with one check-in
Their new scheme: $200 + $15 fee = $215
My scheme: standard new price of $215

For a passenger with no check-in
Their new scheme: $200
My scheme: standard new price of $215 - $15 discount = $200


United estimates the potential revenue from baggage handling service fees at about $275 million a year. It expects the new $15 service fee to apply to one in every three customers. eek

Thats about 28,000 bags a day they move.

One other thing I forgot to mention--AFAIK, the Honda still requires a key.  No one buying a new car today should be required to take a key out of their pocket.  Ever. 

Seriously--I'm never going back.  It's incredible how big of a deal this is.  If you'd asked me before I bought the car, I'd have said it's a neat gimmick.  Sometimes the small stuff makes the biggest difference...

Just a side note on your push start. A friend has a Nissan with push start. He was woken up at 8AM being told that his car was running. He parked at 11PM. He has left the car running twice so far. Very quiet car when its running. For this reason, he now hates the push start.

Before he would remove the ignition key since it has his house keys.

I've read the first book 3-4 times, then the second half way then all the way. Then I finished Children of Dune but just could not get into any more of it. So I'll just stick with the first one.

Now I feel like picking it up again.  smile

I also loved the first movie made in 1984. I read the book before I seen the movie .I know if you had not read the book you would have been lost, but since I did I loved it.

I have seen a white van ,a Green suburban and a silver crew cab pickup. They are all unmarked vehicles with dual spiral antennas? Antennas has about 12 inches of a 4 inch spiral. Then they have 5 ft straight antenna. All in southern CT.

Anyone know what they are for? Seems strange that there are no markings on the vehicles and the drivers are wearing street clothes.

All right, discuss away. How about every one make a list of suspects in order with all the info that they have now. Just 8 names.
Then PM them to Lasser.

Would this be possible?



I hope not.  That would be lame.  icon_lol

Well I was thinking it would be like were all sitting at a table and we all right down our list then reveal when all lists are in. This way no one can be persuaded by some one else’s list posted before their own. Then discuss every ones choices after.

... ok maybe lame.  icon_smile

I think we have a lot to go on here now. The reason Hele did not shoot is ............................................................


I am Helo. This I can prove when we decide who I should shoot!!

I just wanted to get things moving. icon_biggrin

Uh, I was about to check in saying I am not Helo and that if Scoop was not then I had nothing.  Now I know I had nothing. icon_confused

So we are right back to where we started how many pages ago. icon_rolleyes

BTW, for the record, when I posted about being against forcing the specials out I also said that by doing so I was admitting to non-special status.

So.....if Usul is not Helo then the shot choice is obvious, shoot Usul.

Therefore, on the assumption that Usul is actually Helo and not Appolena.......I have to go back and reread with the idea that the Cylon's were as confused as I.

However, before doing that, Newcastle has come forward unopposed as Apollo and claimed a dead Athena.  For him to be lying Athena and Apollo would both have to be dead.  Since rickfc had to be Starbuck we can accept Newcastle for the same reasons we accepted ravenvii and rickfc and stessier.  Actually, knowing Newcastle is telling the truth verifies stessier as there would need to be a live specialist allowing him to claim the role.  So, known:

pr0ner = Athena
UsulofDoom = Helo
stessier = specialist
Rickfc = Starbuck
Harkonis = 12
ravenvii = specialist
Newcastle = Apollo


stessier, there is no need to doubt UsulofDoom as Helo, just withhold voting until everyone has had a chance to check in.  If he is lying that will resolve it.

Scoop, thanks for the answer but with the news that you are not actually Helo you have lost all trust I had placed in you.  Sorry about that.

I think he was to slow here so helo shoots Remus West2 !

stessier - seriously but what has it achieved? I dont think much. I think it's a rookie's impatience really, and I think I have right to be ticked off....again in a gameplay sense....not in real life.....

ok we now have everything out in the open...we have a shit ton of specials out...and we have no clear directions....brilliant move....for the bad guys. I dont think we are any closer than when we started today, pretty much wasted the whole day deciphering his move. So yeah, I am upset on many different levels. again..in a gameplay sense, nothing personal.

I say lynch USUL.

That's ok I would only shoot you in game play sence not real life. Tongue
