| Music Board|| I want to buy a classical guitar - PenguinNinja on 9/11/14 at 4:31 pm|
I played one at a friends house, and I really like it as a compliment to my acoustic & electric. Just offers a different sound and feeling.
Problem is, I know nothing about them.
Any recommendations for good, reasonably priced classical guitars? Or, any idea where I could get some good, obje...
| More Sports Board|| I don't live in the US and am out of the loop. Summarize Rice/Goodell situation - PenguinNinja on 9/10/14 at 4:47 pm|
For me. Please.
All I know is Rice knocked his wife out back earlier this year in an elevator, an a tape just came out. How does this translate into Goodell getting run off?
Serious question here. I have no idea what's going on. ...
| Tiger Rant|| Why can I not find this past weekend's game On Demand on ESPN Player? - PenguinNinja on 9/8/14 at 1:32 pm|
I'm overseas, and paying out the arse for this shite.
Am I missing it?
If not, where/how can I rewatch it?...
| Political Talk|| Guys...what are we going to do about Russia? - PenguinNinja on 9/1/14 at 5:49 pm|
All joking aside, Russia is seeming to outright invade Ukraine, BOLD-FACED LIE about it to the international community despite overwhelming evidence, and suffer no meaningful consequences that it seems to GAF about. Sanctions hurt Russia's economy, and Putin's popularity increases.
Do we let U...
| Political Talk|| Why can't the US conquer the Arabian peninsula? - PenguinNinja on 9/1/14 at 7:06 am|
Seems like we get ourselves into more trouble supporting the Saudis than we would if we just conquered them and took their oil.
So much bull shite to keep them in power so we have a "friend" with all the oil, and they outright support our mortal enemies in extremist Sunnis throughout the ME.

shite runs slow and hot as frick. I run anti-virus on the reg (Malwarebytes and Security Essentials), and defrag on the reg... shite still unbelievably slow.
What can I do?...
| Music Board|| Saw Neutral Milk Hotel last night - PenguinNinja on 8/16/14 at 5:52 am|
Never thought I'd get to say that, but I do.
Far exceeded my expectations. I didn't know beforehand how they'd sound after all the time passed, and u didn't know if they'd be enjoying it or just going through the motions. It was a fantastic show.
Highly recommend if you get the chance an...
| Political Talk|| Why does the West GAF if Iraq breaks into 3 (or more) independent countries? - PenguinNinja on 8/11/14 at 1:52 pm|
Seems like a whole lot of effort going into keeping a country together whose borders were drawn almost 100 years ago almost arbitrarily for Western mandates.
FWIW, this is not a "It's all the West's fault" thread. I just don't get why we GAF if they want to break into Kurdistan, etc. ...

| Political Talk|| Israeli Captive Soldier KIA: does anyone buy this? - PenguinNinja on 8/2/14 at 7:17 pm|
Last time Israel had a soldier captive by Hamas, they had to give up like 50 Palestinians to secure his release. This time one is captive, and then all of a sudden, they randomly discover he's been killed.
Seems fishy. Methinks they're just leaving him behind to rot rather than get into anoth...
| O-T Lounge|| If you were in your early 30s with 1-2 kids in Houston, where would you live? - PenguinNinja on 7/29/14 at 3:59 pm|
Assuming you work downtown and are willing to spend whatever it takes for a pretty nice (but not crazy extravagant) 3-4 BR place? Could be a house, town home, condo...whatever.
Why would you choose that area?
How much would you have to spend for that pretty nice 3-4 BR place that you want in ...
| Music Board|| Recommendations for app/website for tracking new releases? - PenguinNinja on 7/28/14 at 4:35 pm|
I have the bandsintown app (great app, BTW) which scans the artists on my phone and then alerts me when those groups have got a concert scheduled nearby me. It also recommends similar music, which is good for discovering new bands on otherwise boring Friday nights.
I'm wondering if there isn'...

Is there any downside to this, other than constantly having to piss?...
| Political Talk|| True or False re: Truman dropping the A-bomb on Japan: - PenguinNinja on 7/21/14 at 4:37 pm|
1. Truman's decision to drop the atom bomb is the primary (or most significant) reason that the West & Russia didn't battle each other immediately (or very soon) after the end of WWII. Said another way, it's the direct reason the Cold War was a cold war and not WWIII (or WWII+).
2. The existen...
| O-T Lounge|| Facebook Question - PenguinNinja on 7/21/14 at 3:58 pm|
Is there a way to "unblock" friends who I've previously blocked from posting on my newsfeed (or I guess, who I've hidden their posts so I don't see them)? I can't seem to figure out how to do it.
Ideally, I could look at a list of all my friends with toggle buttons that show who is blocked & unb...

I read a lot of basic stuff several years back (e.g. Rich Dad, Poor Dad & Jim Kramer stuff) which is probably amateur hour stuff on this board, I know. Anyway, I gained basic knowledge and I got interested in investing in general, but I had no money to do anything meaningful with, so I kind of lost...

Is Inglorious Basterds, or is Inglorious Basterds not, a "war" movie?
