| Movie/TV Board|| Superman III and IV - TigerWerm on 4/29/13 at 10:11 pm|
What a waste of Chris Reeve in his prime.
Superman III is on HBO right now. I'd forgotten how stunningly bad the plot is. Would it have killed the producers to use source material from the comics?
Reeve and the fans deserved better.
Hopefully Man of Steel will finally deliver the goods....

Evidently my taxable income went up by about 121% in 2012.
I'm in the 25% tax bracket and my effective tax rate now sits at 8.6%. Is this reasonable? or should it be lower? is there some type of rule of thumb that should be a target range?
I Googled around and didn't get a satisfactory ans...

In the 7.5 years under Les Miles, we have had issues offensively against teams that can match us physically.
80% of the time, LSU is physically superior to their opponent...enough to where it can exert its will in the trenches and win the game by sheer physicality.
It is the other 20% of the t...

Please forgive my ignorance, but I'm looking for some other perspectives here....
My financial advisor is trying to steer us into a Diversified Stock Income Plan (DSIP) within my IRA. Sounds like this is typically a mix of 40-50 blue chip type stocks that consistently pay a dividend.

Check out the extremely poor routes that were run on the play where Mett was sacked and fumbled. This play was either poorly designed or executed.
We have at least two receivers running to the SAME SPOT!
The protection was there, but the receivers failed to get separation and ran to the sam...

It's hilarious that he had to do stupid stunts like get a noise machine and Tiger for practice.
Why would you want to create those distractions for your players? He should have been focused on how his guys are going to block Montgomery, Mingo and Johnson.
He's obviously scared that the stage ...

A couple of months ago I "upgraded" my Cox TV service to the Whole Home DVR package.
