| Movie/TV Board|| GoT Mhysa scene opinions? - bdskelton on 6/12/13 at 9:09 pm|
Everyone seemed to unanimously hate this scene. I just rewatched the episode, and I still enjoyed it (liked the scene the first time around too).
Yea maybe they had set a precedent for the supernatural endings the first two seasons (and there was one in particular book readers know that would ...
| O-T Lounge|| re: Structural Eng. Needed. Questions within - bdskelton on 5/30/13 at 2:43 pm|
As the post above me asked, what size area is this meant to support? You say it's 30' span, but how much width in the perpendicular direction area you supporting? And what type of structural members are you spanning to the beam (joists?)?
I don't have the IBC in front of me, but I'd say the m...
| SEC Rant|| Traditional Rivals (UA-Tenn, AU-UGA) as OOC games? - bdskelton on 5/30/13 at 11:44 am|
I have been on the 9 game band wagon for a whole because I want to preserve the traditional rivalries, but still wanted to play the other cross divisional teams more often than every 10 years or whatever it is. Now I'm sorta thinking keep the 8 game schedule, get rid of the permanent rivals, and pl...

I picked it up and it is living up to the hype for me. First game in a while, especially Jrpg, that has some old school charm to it and has sucked me in.
With Final Fantasy falling off the bandwagon, and other new acclaimed jrpgs just not doing it for me (Xenoblade.....) maybe Level 5 will be th...

| SEC Rant|| re: Alabama 09-12 vs Nebraska 94-97 - bdskelton on 1/8/13 at 7:47 am|
Nebraska 90s for sure. They didnt lose a game and are the dynasty always brought up when comparing a current teams dominance.
But Bama 09-current is pretty good to just get in that conversation. Not to mention this run is not over. I'm not saying they will definitely win another one, but the...

Anybody else think Gus Johnson is an amazing announcer? I wish CBS would go after him to replace Verne for the SEC games. This Stanford-UCLA game (and all I've watched on Fox this year) are that much more exciting with Gus at the mic....

Nope, just a little shocked how people think this way. Trash talking and everything is fine when it comes football, but I think it's pretty classless to talk crap about a real life situation where people lost their lives....

Completely uncalled for. He and his girlfriend bunkered down together in a closet, and as I recall he made an attempt to provide extra cover for her, and the tornado ripped them both away and they were slung to different locations. Nobody was at fault of any kin...

First of all congrats Aggies. To be honest I had hoped you and Mizzou would take a beating all year long as a sort of initiation, but A&M definetly earned their stripes by taking down one of the conference's elite. :cheers:
I can think of nothing greater to cap this season for A&M than by whoppi...

The fact that this is what you would take from the story rather than "Paul Ryan volunteers at a homeless shelter" shows how this kind of rhetoric can demean any positives that repubs put forth and focus on the "dum...

This is probably a topic that has been discussed countless times on this board, I don't know (didn't jump on the P.T. board until a few days ago like many).
But what kind of real political power do the Jon Stewarts and Colberts of the world carry? I've thought for a while that eventually these g...

I think this is definitely the best Bama Defense ever. Not a better overall team when compared with '92 or '09 because of the loss, but the loss this year was most certainly not on the defense, and I believe this defense deserves to be called te best Bama D ever....
