| O-T Lounge|| Nest Thermostat Thoughts - JumpingTheShark on 2/21/14 at 10:05 am|
I just got a Nest Thermostat and thought I would share my thoughts.
I have had it for a week and I loved this thing from the minute I installed it. The installation was very easy. I don't know shite about wiring or home maintenance in general, but the instructions were simple and any person with...

| O-T Lounge|| Space Heater Recommendations, please. - JumpingTheShark on 2/11/14 at 3:28 pm|
Looking for a decent space heater to warm up the downstairs of my townhouse. Upstairs gets hot as shite while the downstairs stays rather cold. I would say the area is around 350 to 400 square feet for the big room which is where it will mainly be needed. I don't want to have to do a bunch of inst...
| Music Board|| Help me choose a Beatles box set. - JumpingTheShark on 2/10/14 at 9:43 pm|
All of this Beatles talk has gotten me in the buying mood. The question is, should I go with Stereo box set or the original Mono recordings? I am leaning toward the Mono...just feels a little more authentic IMO

How the hell did I not know this...easily one of my top 3 favorite movies. Even though I own it and I can watch it whenever I want, it disappoints me that I just found it. If you haven't seen this movie, do so immediately, it is a masterpiece. :usa:...

It's time for me to replace my old shoes anyway, but on top of that I get shin splints like a mother fricker regardless of how old my shoes were. Any of y'all used some shoes that could help with this? Even if they don't help with shin splints I would appreciate any legit cross training shoe recomm...

| Movie/TV Board|| Dallas Buyers Club - JumpingTheShark on 1/25/14 at 11:18 pm|
Just saw this movie at the request of a friend. It is one of the best movies I have seen in a while and probably Matthew McConaughey's best performance IMO.
Highly recommend. If you have been on the fence about checking this one out, go do it, it will be worth your time.
Also it gave a great...
| Music Board|| What are your favorite Willie Nelson songs? - JumpingTheShark on 1/21/14 at 9:30 am|
Love listening to Willie Nelson. I want to see if there are any hidden gems out there that I am missing. His cover of Pancho and Lefty is one of my favorite songs ever. Seven Spanish Angels is also great. I know all the really popular ones but I want to see if any of y'all can point me toward so...
| Music Board|| Board's thoughts on Bee Gees? - JumpingTheShark on 1/18/14 at 10:55 pm|
Not sure how to feel about them. I used to make fun of them and the falsetto singing and the whole cheesy disco thing, but for some reason I kinda like listening to them lately. Got to thinking about them today when I watched Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake do the Barry Gibb Talk Show on SNL, w...

I want to get my future father in law a nice cigar lighter as a small token of gratitude for putting on a nice wedding. He has recently taken up having cigars over the weekend and I noticed he uses a regular bic lighter or just matches for lighting his cigars. Matches are fine and often preferred,...

On a side note, if you don't listen to The Adam Ca...
| Gaming Board|| Car Question - GTA V - JumpingTheShark on 1/9/14 at 10:54 pm|
Does each new update contain newly added cars? I feel like I saw a couple of cars today that I had never seen before in the game, and I felt like I had come across every car in the game at this point. Particularly there was one that looked like the Ford Mustang from the 80s and the other one was a...

This thought came to me when the SO was watching that shitty Jonathan Taylor Thomas movie I'll be home for Christmas (Kids dad promises him a Porsche if he makes it home for Xmas dinner)

Was a damn disgrace, a 6-2 Dallas loss, with one of Dallas goals being a garbage goal with less than a minute left. I knew Dallas was sloppy but god damn are the Blackhawks good. the shots on goal stats were entirely lopsided. They made the Dallas goalie look like hell. On another note the Blackha...
