| Movie/TV Board|| Which is more important to you - RT Audience Score or RT Tomatometer? - slackster on 2/25/15 at 8:30 am|
I occasionally browse the M/TV board so I wanted to see which RottenTomato metric is more important/influential to you all. Personally, if there is a movie I find interesting, a bad score in either metric will not deter me from seeing the film.
However, with the more obscure titles or films that...

I try not to pay too much attention to the ridiculous slide shows and stories that are posted on Weather.com, but sometimes they have some pretty cool shite. These are incredible:
| More Sports Board|| Brady/Belichick or Walsh/Montana - who is the better duo? - slackster on 2/3/15 at 12:14 pm|
I believe I'd lean to Brady and Belichick because they've done it multiple ways and across two eras.
That being said, Walsh is credited with basically changing the game and Montana was 4-0 in Super Bowls. Can't really go wrong with either, but if I had to start a team, I'm taking the former. ...

The story has already lost a vast majority of its momentum, but I'm certain that things would pick up steam should the Patriots win Sunday. On the other hand, I believe the story completely goes away if the Patriots lose. Even if they are found guilty after the loss, I think the general public will ...

This lucky son of a bitch probably laughs at the NFL all the way to the bank. I find it hilarious that this guy has been retained to investigate a bullying scandal and a team deflating footballs. I should have been an attorney...
| Money Talk|| Net Unrealized Appreciation (NUA) question/suggestions for tax benefits - slackster on 1/21/15 at 4:15 pm|
Let's say a client, 40 y/o, was terminated and has $100,000 worth of company stock in an ESOP. The cost basis for the stock is $50,000, so the client has $50,000 net unrealized appreciation in the stock.
Let's also assume that the client needs to use $50,000 and he is in the 10% tax bracket.

He's on the Stephen A. Smith radio show right now and Booger is a co-host today with Dan Graza. He was asked about his plans for the upcoming year and he jokingly said that he asked for an interview for the DC opening last week but no one called him back. :lol:
He said his first act as the DC wou...
| More Sports Board|| OSU's win was the worst possible outcome for the BCS AND the 4-team playoff - slackster on 1/13/15 at 10:58 am|
I didn't think it was possible, but all it took was one year for the public to simultaneously shite on the BCS and the current playoff format.
Nothing went right in the semi finals and the finals. An undefeated, reigning national champion was skull-dragged in one semi-final, and the #1 team in th...

Many people bitch about how these guys cheated the game and/or broke unwritten rules and as such, baseball has kept them out of the HOF. However, I find that the public tends to take the opposite position.
There seems to be growing support for these guys, and it is at the point where I believe i...

I've watch a decent amount of Oregon football over the past few years, and while I believe Mariotta is the best QB they've had during their run, their team is basically the same iteration that is has been over the last 10 or so years. However, this year they appear to be the favorite to win it all a...

Under the old system, I'm pretty certain it would have been Bama vs FSU, and it would have been ugly. The Playoffs just had their first redeeming moment by giving Oregon a chance to skulldrag FSU.

| More Sports Board|| Did Baltimore cost JJ Watt the MVP? - slackster on 12/30/14 at 9:52 am|
I've been listening to the debate on sports radio and I've read most of threads on the MSB, and the biggest argument against Watt seems to be the fact that the Texans missed the playoffs. My question is two fold - if the Texans make the playoffs, does Watt win the MVP, and if so, should a Baltimore ...

Obviously it's early and it will change, but who do you have now and who do you believe will get replaced?
G - Curry
G - Harden
F - LeBron
F - Davis
C - Gasol
That team would be so incredible, even historically. I don't think people appreciate how talented the NBA is today. Just for suit...

The disdain for Paul Chryst got me thinking about some of the up and coming coaches who quickly fell out of flavor. It seems, more often than not, that the craze is often not warranted. What other coaches were you big on until things fell apart?
