The more conspiratorial among us have often wondered when Amazon would reveal it's true intentions.
How and why does a company not even try to make a profit while continuing to grow and grow, offering new and better service seemingly every day, creating innovative products, and basically redefin...

| Political Talk|| How would we react to another 9/11? - uway on 9/11/14 at 9:27 am|
I think most of us feel that we would want to take a more measured response to a large-scale act of terrorism. That we have learned something from 9/11 and it's aftermath.
But personally I don't know how I would feel if it actually happened again. I don't know how liberal NY or SF would react...

On an ssd.
I have my old hard drive as a secondary drive. Didn't do anything to it besides unplug it while I installed win on the ssd and then plugged it into a secondary port.
1.Am I doing anything wrong by leaving the old drive as is as a local disk? Windows is still installed on it.
| Soccer Board|| What's the strategy now? - uway on 6/26/14 at 4:56 pm|
The goal of getting out of the group has been achieved.
So do you think Klinsmann rolls out a similar lineup as the last 2 matches or goes a little more aggressive?
I'm thinking he doubles down on Michael Bradley as an attacking midfielder and goes with the 4-4-2 that took it to Mexico in th...

This young feral cat I have been feeding was pregnant two weeks ago, then this past week she wasn't pregnant, then Friday she got run over and killed.
We've never seen the kittens. I assumed they died since she just showed back up without them last week (and because she herself was so young, not t...

I'm trying to get at how much the cost of a home actually varies based on the living area of the house.
I know that choice of fixtures, amount of paved driveway, size of garage, size of porches, contractor's workload, flooring material choices, etc. go into how much a given house will cost per SF...

My compressor just went out.
What's the ballpark price for a middle-class 4 ton ac unit (I'm thinking Rheem or similar) including installation (outside unit only). I'm waiting on a price from my AC guy, but is this the type of thing it's worth shopping around for?
How much of a difference ...

Basic info is I have a Stag Model 2 complete rifle with a cheap quad rail. It's a carbine length gun, and to be a real Operator I think I need a mid-length upper.
It would be great to just buy a new complete DD, BCM, etc rifle, but that's not happening.
Is it worth just switching out the up...

I want to see this discussed.
I don't think we need to rehash whether the wars were justified on their own merits.
But regardless of that, after 9/11:

- We started killing jihadis in grea...
