Recommend to me something from RedBox or On Demand to watch with 2 young adults - Methuselah
Just gonna be me and the kids (18&21) tonight so I figured I'd pick up Chinese and we'd watch a flick together. I'm thinking maybe something sci-fi or comedy or maybe light adventure. I'd rule out (for the tastes of different ones of us) romances, war movies and probably cowboys and sports movie...

? for football historians - has 2nd half ever started where the 1st half ends? - Methuselah
Not sure why this question popped into my head watching the Saints game tonight, but: I wonder if anywhere in the long history of football has the rule ever been that the 2nd half would start where the 1st half ends in terms of possession, down and distance? I kind of doubt it because in socce...

How does the movie Das Boot hold up to the book? - Methuselah
I loved the book and have read it a couple of times over the years (though it has been awhile). For some reason I've never caught the movie. I think it was well received but has it held up? Any thoughts on it? Does it measure up to the book?...

Your only entertainment for a year was between 20 great movies or 100 good ones - Methuselah
Here's the scene - you are stuck in some secluded spot (it's getting harder to come up with these scenarios with today's technology - let's go with the old "stuck on a desert island with a dvd player and solar power source" or "artic work station") You have lots of free time and your only enterta...

The betting lines - SEC teams seem to be favored in all but 1 game (sorry TAMU) - Methuselah
SEC still seems to have some respect in Vegas. Lines have almost all of the conference teams as favorites. And Bama is a whopping 9.5 point favorite over OSU (pretty hefty line for a playoff that is supposed to be matching up the "best" teams). [link=(http://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/sec-footb...

That time of year - who knows of any great bargains on jerseys? - Methuselah
I remember in past years there was always talk that one of the department stores had some crazy bargins on unusual old/classic jerseys. Target maybe? What about the internet sites? Which ones are the best for price/value combination?...

New series - The Librarians on TNT - Methuselah
What did you guys think? I loved the concept. Heck, I loved the old movies. And they had a ton of great actors - Bob Newhart, Jane Curtin, John Larroquette, etc. Now which will only end up being guest stars for the first episodes or only recurring characters we'll have to wait and see. Ex...

Name and rank your teams in a 5+3 playoff - Methuselah
Conference champs are pretty much a given (except of course for the mess that is the Big12). But the 3 wildcards still need to be named and the 8 teams need to be ranked). Would an additional SEC team get in? Who else? Anybody from outside the 5 "major" conferences. I'd go: 1- Alabams (S...

Yet another conference alignment idea - do away with divisions all together. - Methuselah
With the new playoff system (and the possible expansion of it in the future) I'm not sure that two divisions are the best way to go no matter how they are aligned. Vet this idea for me - what if they did away with divisions all together and instead used some sort of formula or algorithm to schedu...

Is it possible to do a really good Hitchhiker Guide to the Galaxy movie or show? - Methuselah
The 2005 movie had it's moments and was well cast overall, but, to me, it didn't have that Douglas Adams magic. I've never listened to the radio show or watched the t.v. show (I'm not sure there even was a t.v. show but I think there was). I've read the books several times and love them. But ...

Question for the gurus - why don't our break away runs take it to the house more - Methuselah
I'm not turning nega. I promise. But it has struck me this year that a lot of our break away runs don't go all the way as we've seen in past years and as we've seen other teams do. First, is my perception somewhat accurate? And, if so, Second: Why is it? Do our guys this year just not ha...

Let us take a moment to be grateful for the mild moderating policy of Tiger Rant - Methuselah
Weeks like this when the inmates are kind of let out of the asylum might seem distasteful. There are those who seem to have found the loopholes in the no senseless bashing FAQ's and who, like experimental lab animals provided with a button that dispenses crack, can't seem to stop poking it.
