If you're a sam's club member, you can save the cost for balancing, etc. by buying your tires from them.  they also guarantee the dang things for the life of the tire.  i actually joined a sam's club because it was cheaper than purchasing them from anywhere else.

Well, seems like more than just a few of us were a little put off by the voice Bale takes on when in the Batman suit :

Quote
Reviewing the film for MSNBC, Alonso Duralde wrote that Bale's Batman in "Batman Begins" "sounded absurdly deep, like a 10-year-old putting on an 'adult' voice to make prank phone calls. This time, Bale affects an eerie rasp, somewhat akin to Brenda Vaccaro doing a Miles Davis impression."

however, that one thing doesn't do much in the way of harming this great film.

I most certainly did not intend for my post to be seen as a "how to"" manual on crashing OO.  I was simply making an observation here that hopefully someone from OO would take note of and perhaps address.  Contacting the admins for OO was not an option at the time as I couldn't get into OO (obviously...hence my post).  By the time it did come back I had moved on to something else and forgot to contact them.

In any case, it's not like i'm the first person to post a "hey i found a problem with the site" message in this thread or at OO on the meta board.   Roll Eyes

as i noted in my initial post, i regard this crime as shocking and down right frightening.  i have nothing but the utmost sympathy for the victim's family and I'm apalled at the extent of evil displayed by the murderer. 

however, gallows humor has existed since the moment humans traded fins for feet (or, if you're a creationist, were plopped into the garden).  it's in our dna to make light of things that scare us.  it helps us to deal.  yes, tasteless at times.  but it doesn't mean those making jokes about the situation are any less aware of the gravity of the situation.

in any case, as pointed out, this thread was purely an attempt to poke fun at the number of threads that popped into existence after the first one.

I'm glad he'll get his day in court because the general prison population will do much worse things to him than any police officer could have.

somehow i doubt he'll actually go to jail.  my guess is that he's looking at a mental hospital for the rest of his life.

 if you want to crash OO, simply delete a post immediately after making it.  it brings OO down for a short while.  i've tested it twice now.   i actually switched pages after creating a new reply and then went back and deleted it the second time, but the results were the same.

This monster didn't give a shit if he got caught or shot to dead in that bus after butchering that man. He was too far gone.

actually, the people on the bus reported that he tried to escape through a window at first, then tried to drive the bus away when police arrived.  the quick thinking drive had engaged some type of override switch on the bus though.

yeah, i tend to look at ebert's reviews before anyone else.  as someone mentioned somewhere else, he reviews films in the spirit in which their made, instead of trying to hold everything up to citizen kane standards.

but i'll probably still just rent this one.  too many movies coming out over the next few months.   icon_smile

Reading the longer news articles that have been released since I originally started this thread makes the whole thing read even more like a horror movie. 

The passengers tried to confront him but he scared them off with the knife.  When some men went back on board to try to help the victim, the murderer came after them with a knife in one hand and the victim's severed head in the other.  They eventually were able to lock him in the bus but had to watch him try to force his way out of the door while brandishing crowbars and wrenches distributed by a passerby in a truck.

God, this thing just gets more and more horrific.
7984  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Serial Murder in Ciudad Juarez on: August 01, 2008, 01:41:53 PM
I was stationed down in El Paso years ago for work for about a year and I heard all sorts of horror stories about Juarez.  If I recall correctly, there was another murderer who concentrated on prostitutes that was eventually caught on a train around that time.

Juarez itself is just scary.  Although Tijuana isn't exactly a walk in the park, either.  Border towns, as someone mentioned, are just bad news, unfortunately.

The biggest problem i have with the current Mummy movies with Fraser is how friggin' delicate the damn mummy minions are.  It's hard to work up a sense of dread when a 10 year old kid is able to easily pull the arms off one, while the heat from a glow stick will cause them to burst into flames.
7996  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The new Mummy movie is...maybe not so good on: July 31, 2008, 05:49:49 PM
One of my deepest shames is that I actually LIKE Fraser.  For some reason, he just comes across as a genuinely nice guy. 

That being said, I'll probably wait for this one on dvd.

I think what we have to consider is a profit margin of only around 8.5%.  When compared to other areas of business, just think about what gas prices could be with a comperable profit margin to say, Microsoft or Apple.  Yes, gas prices are a bit high, but not as high as they could be.

Considering that you are personally responsible for about 20 percent of that profit due to your constantly driving back and forth between the salon, the beauty supply store and the day spa in northern Arizona (you boycotted the one near your house because "the fools tried to use an off brand exfoliate and didn't think i'd know the difference!"), I don't think you have any room to comment on this article.
