Android, by the way...
The address bar at the top of a webpage scrolls off the top of the screen as I scroll down the page... I prefer to have my address bar and forward and back buttons always visible and accessible, as in other browsers. Is there some way to anchor it?...
| O-T Lounge|| Jeopardy update... SPOILERS.... that cute girl with the glasses - Rex on 2/20/15 at 7:00 pm|

I'll go with this:
Violently shocking, faithful to its source, and oh so bizarre. A nine star feast.

[quote]"I'm going to punt on that one as well," said Wisconsin's Republican governor when asked about evolution at the end of an hour-long appearance at the prestigious Chatham House think tank. "That's a question a politician shouldn't be involved in one way or the other. So I'm going to leave that...

I'll go with [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0udu4KYv1zI)]On the Street Where You Live[/link]. It's just terribly sweet.

| Movie/TV Board|| Boyhood, boy oh boy. Just watched it, and I have a big question - Rex on 2/10/15 at 11:13 pm|
Don't we all have enough boring people in our OWN lives to care about? What was the point of this non-movie? Nothing remarkable happens, which means YOU might as well invite me over to your house to watch your old home movies.
I can just imagine what Richard Linklater is thinking as he awaits...

| More Sports Board|| You're Tampa Bay you take Jameis Winston - Rex on 2/6/15 at 4:02 pm|
Any other choice would rank among the stupidest ever.
I'm not saying Winston is a high character fellow, but this "character" issue as a detriment to his draft value is mostly manufactured b.s. for people like Dan Patrick and Rich Eisen to have something to talk about. The NFL, for the most part...

| Political Talk|| Another example of a GOP "libertarian" idiot - Rex on 2/3/15 at 5:53 pm|
His philosophy of government is that there's too much regulation, so he would allow restaurants to opt out of health regulations requiring their employees to wash their hands after using the bathroom... NOW GET THIS: as long as that restaurant posts a sign saying it doesn't require its employees to...
