too bad you're not referring to waist size.  unfortunately, the area you're referring to cannot be reduced in size.  i apologize for the embarrassment you've endured.

He's funnier than Dave Letterman, as is just about everyone else on the planet.

You take that back!!!!!  At least if we're talking about Dave back on NBC.  He's still funny today, though.

letterman = comedy gold

conan = comedy gold

leno = Hee Haw


(although, to be fair, back when leno used to regularly guest on the letterman nbc show, he was one funny mofo.  since taking over for carson, he's had to tone it down to a level that older folks would understand/not be offended by/can tell to friends.)

I dunno....that shit was funny to me when I was a kid growing up in the deep South.



my father loved Hee Haw when I was a kid.  I was forced to watch it each Saturday night (at least I think it was Saturday nights..my mind has since entered a defensive state and refused to recall details about that period in my life).  To this day I openly weep and try to run when I see someone emerge from a corn field.

10 things you need to know about Fable 2.  All I know is one thing-  I WANT IT NOW!!!!!!!!

Quote
You're also able to choose between protected and unprotected sex when you get busy with your partner(s), the latter leading to pregnancy and children. You'll be the most important influence in the lives of your children, so if you're an evil bastard, your child will likely be a bully. If you don't treat your wife well, she can fool around behind your back and will eventually ask for a divorce - taking half your worldly possessions with her. And if your wife dies, your children will be shipped off to the orphanage. It's a cruel world.

And in a very interesting twist, if you choose to be a female adventurer you'll have to carry and bear any children you have, leaving your husband to tend the homestead.

argh, 12 hours?  i'm finally playing fable on my 360 and i was truly disappointed to see that I was more than halfway through the game at the 7 hour mark when I checked out my progress against the faq on gamefaqs.com.   icon_frown

p.s. for the first 6 hours or so, fable on the 360 was stable as could be (albeit with the ocassional issues with sound that some mentioned previously).  however, about an hour into the arena fight quest, the dang thing crashed on me.   icon_mad

I played the demo of this game. It was an exercise in tedious mediocrity. I'm not sure what is supposedly innovative about it. The Norse Gods being heroes is something you would find in a Marvel comic. People using swords in a world full of guns is a Jedi thing and I daresay it's even older than that (I suppose one could even point to renaissance warfare). Even having a moronic, drug-fed camera which has a fixation upon walls and the angles of uselessness is hardly anything new. Oh but wait, there's robots! Oh my, where would we have ever seen robots or cybernetic beings before? And the robots are trying to kill humans! The creativity!

I don't get it do I? I don't get it like rabid fans of the Matrix sequels will insist I just don't get those pieces of crap and their Yakov Smirnoff style philosophy. Well, I sleep soundly and untroubled by my ignorance, I'd rather not get a pile of steaming awful.

while i'm not getting the game myself until it drops in price in the used section of gamestop, i'm not sure why it seems to be evoking such vehemence from you?  did the makers of the game slap you as a child or something?   icon_lol

I didn't have any issues with it repositioning automatically and moving it around was fairly intuitive.

I was surprised when I was getting my butt handed to me in that first hangar bay scene in the demo and I accidentally force grabbed one of the suspended Tie Fighters and it dropped on a group of attacking stormtroopers, crushing them in the process.   eek

I like it so far.  I can understand some of the complaints being tossed around, but for the most part it fulfills my need for "baddassery".   icon_smile

It also includes the ability to play as David Hasselhof, Larry the Cable Guy and Bea Arthur

I love Eureka.  The stories are light but fun, the lead actor who plays the sheriff has fantastic comic timing and comes across as less a "Sci Fi Original Movie Square Jaw Hero" than he does a regular guy stuck in a weird situation who makes the best of it.  It's one of those rare shows that has the right mix that keeps me coming back each week...

I think the clerk handled it quite well.  It's like R rated movies.  the cashier can't stop an adult from taking a child into the movie.  the responsibility is firmly on the parent or guardian at that point.

Well, it reminds me a bit of a parent who will say, "Look, my high school kid is going to drink alcohol.  I would rather they did it in my home where I can at least keep an eye on them, than out somewhere, especially if they have to drive."  I actually think this is a good idea.  Better than a clueless parent who either assumes their kid doesn't drink or one who adopts a don't ask/don't tell policy.

i tried to use this excuse with my parents when i was about 12.  they didn't think that at that age I should have access to firearms, liquor and prostitutes though.   icon_cry
