Wow. By far the best movie I've seen from 2015. Absolutely stunning. The score that was playing while they were in the storm...unreal. Charlize Theron was incredible. It wasn't too much or too long. I predict "What a lovely day" to be an instant classic movie line. ETA: just loo...View Topic - Replies (5)

So after my windows 10 update, Steam isn't launching any of the games. It says it needs directx9. I'm on like 11 I believe. Must be a common problem, because a bunch of stuff comes up when I google it. I downloaded something that was supposed to fix the directx issues. First it asks me where...View Topic - Replies (1)

So Fournette keeps being compared to college greats like Herschel Walker, Bo Jackson and Earl Campbell. I'm curious why Ricky Williams name is never mentioned in these all time greatest college RB discussions. Is it because he turned into such a flake? Is it nostalgia for the 70's and 80's? ...

So I go into the AT&T store to upgrade to a 5 and the salesman says they no longer do that. He starts going on the pitch about paying for the phone in monthly installments. I decided I didn't need a new phone that badly. I get home and go on AT&T's website and do the upgrade just fine. So I don'...View Topic - Replies (9)
