Binocular Reviews - Tigris
There have been several posts here recently asking for binocular recommendations and Christmas is almost on us so this seems like a pretty good time to link this. It's the new Cornell Lab of Ornithology review of more than 100 binocular models and it's quite well done though I wish they'd included ...

Ghost Squirrel? - Tigris
[img]http://images61.fotki.com/v665/filej0xx/68a7b/6/657394/5869718/Email3.jpg[/img] Seriously - this is a genetic mutation of a gray squirrel and not an albino. They seem to have a few in the Florida panhandle and it's pretty weird when you first see one. This SOB would steal food from our ten...

Deadliest Twit - Tigris
Does anybody think the Twit messages that pop up during Deadliest Catch are a good idea? The show has had a good run and I guess they are hurting for new ideas but if this is all they can come up with it's time to pull the plug. I found it to be unwatchable. Why would anyone watch a TV show in or...

Turkish Star Wars - Tigris
This is so excruciatingly bad it is funny as hell. Star Wars was not allowed into Turkey for political reasons so it was remade into a Turkish version that uses snippets from the original (more music than video). It is truly awesome. Highlights - Luke Skywalker ties rocks to his legs and trai...

Excellent read on natural gas from shale - Tigris
[quote]Shale gas is a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" for U.S. manufacturing[/quote] It gives the US chemical industry a large advantage when compared to most of the world. This after things were horribly grim 6-7 years ago with very expensive natural gas. [link=(http://www.industryweek.com/...

Obscure but very good movie - In the Loop - Tigris
Watched it last night and again this morning. Maybe better the second time because of thick British accents and very fast delivery. This movie made me laugh more than any in several years. Think Office Space meets Burn After Reading on steroids. Lots of insults and profanity but simply outstandi...

Alert national park rangers may have saved lives - Tigris
while we were visiting Carlsbad Caverns. Upon detecting lightning within 20 miles they quickly shut down the natural access to the cave (a 300 yard walk from the visitor center).

Harvard Beats Yale 29-29 - Tigris
Finally watched it and liked it a lot. It is a documentary with interviews of the players interspersed with footage from the game. Played in 1968, both teams were undefeated but Yale was heavily favored. The game is interesting but the interviews are more so for what they reveal about the people ...

9 of the first 14 posts have Palin in the subject line - Tigris
OK, it is now 10 of 15. That obsession seems really odd to me. A lot of vitriol for a lightweight (and yes I do consider her to be a lightweight). There is an old saying that a man can be measured by the strength of his enemies. A bunch of lightweights on this board....
