OP is a lame story. But here's what I'm curious about:
Why would the chick be on the hook for the stuff OP ordered? She didn't order it. Does the mere fact that she was sitting at the table with him make her liable for it?
For those of you who work/have worked in restaurants, what is done i...

If he's talking strictly NFL then it's been on such a high that at some point I think it has to (or had to if it already happened) reached a zenith and begin a slope down.
That is not to say that any decline will be precipitous or even steady though. Even when you pass the longest day of sunli...
| O-T Lounge|| re: Recommend a WWII book - Methuselah on 1/31/15 at 6:00 pm|
They've both been recommended numerous times already in this thread but I'll add my vote to:
Helmet for My Pillow - by Leicke
With The Old Breed - by Sledge
These are two of the source books for The Pacific mini series and IMHO both better than the series. Two stories of the Marines in ...

Dang. The guy that played Baltar did such a good job with the role I think he would have done well with Doran. I didn't watch enough of DS0 to form an opinion on the actor who played Bashir.
Hopefully he'll do well. ...

On the one hand, that is nothing at all like I pictured Doran Martel would look.

Beckham with his hair style and Mettenberger with his coat of many colors seem to be ahead of the game.

I've long ago quit expecting anything other then outright documentaries to be accurate and don't even always take those at face value.

Of course we know now which succeeded and which failed. But in your opinion, which were the biggest underdogs when they started? You can even give odds if you want. I put my definition of "victory" with each but feel free to state your own if you disagree with mine.

So, how did Gus know about the bomb on his car in the hospital garage? (Just had that part on the marathon showing).
Something Jessee said? Some type of intuition? Something about the look of his car? I missed part of it.

Are you asking which are animated the worst? Or which "animated series" is the worst?
Actually to me the two inquiries kind of go together. The badly animated stuff just doesn't tend to appeal to me, especially if it seems to be drawn badly or drawn to look ugly on purpose. I'm talking about ...

| Tiger Rant|| re: Fullback position morphing into just another blocker - Methuselah on 1/23/15 at 4:33 pm|
And why is the fullback rarely the back who is actually the farthest back from the line of scrimmage?
Quarterback is appropriately closest to the line of scrimmage.
But full backs don't ever seem to be "fully" back.
