Walnuts are an abomination.  Unless they are in baclava, which I suspect is good in spite of the walnuts.  Why anyone likes them, I don't know... I also have the added bonus of an allergic reaction to them which leaves my mouth sore and itchy.

Cool... I dug that excerpt... Sort of reminds me of the one Chuck Palahniuk book I read for some reason...

Thanks for the info.

I was watching LA Confidential again last night, and enjoying it even more than the last time, and got to thinking I should check out the book...

I saw some sort of passing reference to an 'LA Trilogy'... is there some sort of order I should read any of the books in, and would any of his fans rank the books in a specific order?  I really like the setting, so that would also weight what I wanted to read if some of his stuff is set outside of the 40s - 60s sort of era...

Thanks.

Because if that's the case they might have just as well made this a one character jack-of-all-trades game, and that would really suck.

Think about this statement.  It's ridiculous.

I've had this issue in the past when I didn't let the tank depressurize before pumping... if the nozzle is not letting extra pressure in the tank escape, and you undo the gas cap too quickly and the inner metal cover/seal is sealing it, this can happen...

Don't just whip your gas cap off... turn it until you can hear the pressure in the tank finish equalizing, then remove it the rest of the way.

Here's what you do...

Find some girls you like and date them. 

Give the need for a girl to be really sensitive and talk about feelings with that you've expressed in this thread a front row seat.

This will inevitably lead to a conversation wherein she says 'I just want to be friends.'

Bam.  You are in.

I really enjoyed it.

I worked in a movie theatre long ago. While picking up all the trash was always nasty at least most of it was food. The worst was when people would leave used diapers. Some people would even stay until the lights came on to change the kid and then leave the diaper while we stood in the back waiting for them to leave so we could clean.

In actual movies I have grown a dislike to cars exploding into massive fireballs. While I don't mind it happening to a few it seems that any car shot or that lands upside has to now blow up.

This reminds me of a story my buddy told me recently... he took his 1.5 year old kid to see Bee Movie (yeah, I don't know), and half an hour in the kid puked all over himself, the seat, my buddy, the floor... so my buddy scooped him up and bolted... he got home and his wife said "Where are the kid's shoes?"  So she made him go back to get them.

I dunno... sometimes there is something to be said for stylishness... in some movies it works to have a shotgun blow someone across the room.  But yeah.

Why is it that when someone is standing in front of glass and gets shot in the head, it always splatters blood and gore on the glass, yet somehow the bullet that delivered all of this energy doesn't shatter the glass?  I could even go for a bullet hole if I were pressed.  I'm pretty sure bullets don't stop the second they get to the opposite side of a head.

I much, much, much prefer this style of RPG to the Oblivion style of RPG.  I want a nice, focused story without too much futzing around.

As for 360 vs. PC, I had lockups on the 360 version as well as a couple on the PC version... so pick yer poison, I guess.

I took a quick look for it at lunch, but didn't see it... how do I go about downloading it?

It's never inappropriate to bitch about the NBC camera angles (HD or otherwise).  I can't gripe too much about the rest of their broadcast, though, as G3 is the only NBC broadcast I got to actually sit and watch (we watched G4 in a sportsbar, and attended G5).

I could easily see this going the distance -- a hot goaltender is the ultimate trump card this time of year.  Will be interesting to see if Fleury isn't the most worn-out player on the ice come G6.  Us non-goaltending watchers of the sport don't realize just how much energy a netminder expends in a game like that.

I'm with you on wanting it over in G6, however.  We're camping/rafting this weekend, so we wouldn't be able to watch G7 until getting back in town on Sunday night (and if it goes to OT, no guarantees that it'd be recorded on our DVR).

I just realized the game is on Saturday, not Friday... I should be able to watch it if it comes to that.

I was really quite happy with the coverage on Vs.  Good picture, etc.  Stupid NBC... I wouldn't mind the camera angles all that much if they could get their huge network into our HD lineup... boggles the mind.

Yeah, Fleury definitely had to work his ass off to post that win on Monday. Hopefully he's dead on his feet tonight. smile

Can I also bitch one final time about having to watch these last few games (and tonight's) on NBC, which I don't get in HD?  Every time someone really nails the puck I can't see it.  Ugh.

Weird... I honestly don't think I've ever seen (or at least not noticed) that... and I've shot lots and lots of people in COD4 who didn't die. smile

It's not actually that popular a perk. I usually see it on the shotgun wielding grenade-spam/martyrdom fanatics and pretty much nobody else. And I don't see too many of them since I never play Headquarters Tongue

The main players I have trouble with the the ones who play nothing but COD4 for 5 hours a day and kick the living shit out of me.  They need matchmaking based on how many hours you have played, or rank, or some shit...

I can't believe I read that whole thing.  Good story though.  I know what you mean about having that sinking realization that it wasn't going to go the way we wanted it to... oh well.  I tried to see you guys in the crowd, but those Wings jersey's don't stick out at the Joe like they do in Denver. smile

Having gone to six, I could actually see this going to seven if Fleury keeps it up, but it's clear which is the better team... I hope they are able to put it away tonight (especially since there is no way I would be able to watch a game 7).  Osgood seems off his step and Fleury is just on fire... the three goals on him are a testament to how well the wings really did play.  Some really impressive goaltending.

I'd think the experience factor helped (but not enough) during the distance of the game.  But even healthy 35 year bones and muscles don't bounce back from four hours of intense work out in 48 hours.  We're going to look much more tired than you on Wednesday.  We will just get our cup on a home game is all.  smile

Experience isn't going to stop a goaltender when he's on fire.

Also, I didn't realize you were actually on the team.
