| Movie/TV Board|| Recommend True Detective front to back rewatch. - Scoop on 4/13/14 at 6:12 pm|
I had to spend all afternoon doing paperwork and couldn't find anything for a decent background watch so I decided to rewatch TD.
I can honestly say I'm enjoying the rewatch more than I did watching it the first time. Knowing everything actually adds rather than subtracts on the second viewing.
| Political Talk|| The one positive thing the Obama Administration has given me at 40. - Scoop on 4/11/14 at 11:32 pm|
I'm conservative and always have been.
I've also always loved Rage Against the Machine.
It was awkward as a Conservative all these years to love Rage.
Thanks to Obama, all Americans can love Rage regardless of their politics with no awkwardness....

The Republicans win the Senate and keep The House in 2014.
The following 2 years, the media and the Democrats successfully establish the narrative that any current problems should be blamed on the Republicans because they hold both houses of Congress even though with Obama having the veto pen, th...
| Gaming Board|| KSP. What are you doing lately? - Scoop on 4/7/14 at 7:10 pm|
I don't get to play as much as I want and still playing .22.
I've filled out the tech tree.
While manned missions theoretically give more science with crew reports, EVA reports, etc, what I started doing to negate that was sending up unmanned missions with multiple probes.
I'm getting mor...
| Movie/TV Board|| So...my only DirectTV box went out today. GOT related. - Scoop on 4/6/14 at 3:46 pm|
We got as close to cord cutting as we could a while back and have only one DTV receiver with a bare bones package plus HBO. Box went out today.
Our best TV is one that only has an AppleTV plugged into it and I was gonna use the DTV DVR as a back up in case HBOGO shite the bed like it did in the Tr...
| Money Talk|| Computers and the market. - Scoop on 4/5/14 at 4:39 pm|
I'm checking out a podcast that I've heard of but just now checked out today while slaving away in the yard called Radiolab. It is NPR based.
They had a Speed themed podcast in early Feb 2013 and there was a story about computers and the market.
It was fascinating. Did a search and didn't see ...

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

| Political Talk|| "Three generations from shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves." - Scoop on 3/25/14 at 5:12 pm|
This is a quote from Andrew Carnegie.
The context of the quote is that a person of a certain mindset creates wealth, the comfort that the wealth provides gradually erodes the character of the generations that inheret it with no effort and the third generation finally extinguishes it.
| Movie/TV Board|| New Girl - Scoop on 3/21/14 at 7:16 pm|
I always assume comedies on the big four networks are going to suck so I tend to not check them out.
The only big four network comedies I watch are Community and Parks.
I never gave New Girl a second thought and assumed it was a chick show and was probably horrible until I watched an episode o...

Motivated by Cosmos.
My stance is that I completely agree with the theory of evolution. Over the course of millions and millions of years, random genetic mutations that by accident result in an advantage in a particular environment for the creatures that have it result in their rise while those w...

I searched and saw there were few threads earlier in the month when there was a ruling in another state regarding the legality of warning other drivers of speed traps by flashing headlights.
Gonna refresh the topic because a Shreveport TV station had a Troop G trooper in to discuss it.

Forgive me if this has been discussed.
I'm not much of a consumer of contemporary music. I didn't know much about Bruno Mars but was impressed with the half time show, especially the James Brown impersonation.
I heard a song by him a few years back about it raining or something...

Thinking seriously about it and wanted some input. The end of football season is a good time to think about it.
We rarely watch DTV.

Rickety boats chasing them for hours when a .50 Cal or even a decent shooter with a deer rifle could have stopped the boarding in the first place.
It's a great metaphor for how it will be if we lose our guns.
We are left with water hoses when the bad guys come with their guns....
