| Political Talk|| Reduced Dependence on Foreign Oil - elprez00 on 1/6/15 at 8:25 pm|
I've heard this phrase perpetuated by both sides of the Isle for as long as I remember. From what I've read, the US is now one of the largest oil producers on the planet and is a threat to opec, so much so that opec is willing to crash the market to try to drive out the competition. (generalizing, c...

Had a busy month and a half, so I had 4 episodes on the DVR to catch up with.
Seriously, if you are not watching this show, start. Its become one of my favorite shows on TV and the best comedy I've seen since season 2-3 of The Office.
I know some were concerned because they are anti-Samberg, ...

I've been on a Super Mario kick lately, and my old trusty Game boy, believe it or not, finally died. (There's a quality peice of equipment. At least 25 years.)
So I headed on over to the app store, searched for Super Mario, and behold....... Nothing. Not a damn thing.
I can buy Duke freakin N...

| Tech Board|| Direct Tv Dvr Problems - elprez00 on 10/30/14 at 1:17 pm|
In the last two weeks, my DVR has been acting crazy. First, its not recording programs at the right time. Didn't record Walking Dead Sunday night, I had to set it to do so manually. Then, it keeps cutting stuff off. Watched South Park last night and The League, the duration shows correct but the rec...

I was in the car listening on the radio. Hawthorne was beside himself, said the ball was uncatchable given that it was intercepted. Was it as bad as he made it out to be?
DISCLAIMER BEFORE EVERYONE GOES NUTS.
I was not at the game, didn't leave early. Heading home from a family trip. Had to list...

2:53 mins. My goal was 3 hrs.
I'm now down 46lbs this year and accomplished something I never would've imagined I could do even a year ago.
Yes this is a not so subtle brag thread. Yes I might get the 13.1 sticker for my car. Suck it haters. :lol:...

OK so I bought it and finally got to watch it. Explain to me a couple of things:
- How was Charles still alive in the future?
- Why/When did he and Eric meet Logan in the airport at the end of Wolverine?
I get that Singer very craftily retconned the events of X3, but I'm confused as to how Char...

Reading FIGJAMs Ryder Cup stuff made me remember Phil was pretty vocally for golf returning to the Olympics, if I'm not mistaken. I happened to peruse over to check a couple of things out and noticed something pretty crazy.
First off, the Rio Olympics will open August 5th and close August 21st.

Watching it for the first time in a long time, it still makes me laugh.
Remember the craziness that surrounded that movie when it came out? Only movie I've ever been to where they actually checked IDs at the entrance to the theater.
It's mild and tasteful compared to half the stuff that come...

I figure we've got enough OT badassess and real military flyboys to answer this.

The first launch of the Saturn V rocket was in Nov of 1967. One year later, they sent men around the moon in one. Six months after that, they sent men to land on the moon in one.
