I saw it in the theater 13 years ago and thought it was pretty good at the time. But as I've gotten older the movie has stayed with me. Especially the scene where Haley Joel Osment finally asks the blue fairy where he came from. Such a vivid parallel to the human condition and our search for how ...

What would be my best bet for a small tablet or ipod-like device with a really good rear-facing camera (5 megapixels or better) for something like $200 or less? I would just get a camera but there is some really good video software that I use that is only available for iOS/Android/Windows. I don't m...

Why aren't you hearing about it in the media? It's all so predictable. They don't think the masses have the attention span to concentrate on the Super Bowl AND a political controversy simultaneously.

1. Split up the nights with your wife. Go in shifts. Don't put the baby in your room because you will both be up all night. This will depend on how much maternity/paternity leave you get, but if you can arrange it to where one of you is sleeping and the other is taking care of the baby, you will...

Occasionally I'll run across a claim that a stock "bounced" or "found support" off a 10-week moving average or a 30-week moving average, etc. And while some stocks do appear to do that, I have to wonder if it's only a coincidence when it happens. What say the MT stock pros? ...

Gold has been a popular short of late, with $DUST making huge gains the last few weeks. But the spot price is about to hit a double bottom of $1200 last reached in June. Question now is does it keep falling below that level of support or does it bounce hard and resume the long term up-trend (looking...
| More Sports Board|| Crack in the FSU armor? - RidiculousHype on 12/2/13 at 10:46 am|
I noticed they had only modest success running the ball vs. Florida, with 4.0 yards per carry. Florida's run D vs:
LSU 4.5 ypc
UGA 4.5 ypc
SCar 4.7 ypc
Mizzou 5.5 ypc
If FSU has to play the SEC champ, and they become 1-dimensional, they may not be as dominant as they've looked. And I have...

Q1. Over the years it always seems like LSU is the more talented team but Ark plays us better than expected. From your point of view does it seem like no matter the talent/records disparity that you play LSU tougher than you play other SEC teams?
Q2. If yes to the above do you think the timing of...

of his performance in his 2nd term. He is disinterested, disengaged, possibly depressed. His press conference last week reminded me a lot of that Denver debate. He shouldn't have sought a 2nd term if he didn't want the job. I think he spent his whole political life climbing to that next job up a...
