I will admit that I did lose a lot of my venom for Manziel after seeing how well he interacted with the LSU players after that game. Otherwise, I can't stand "celebrity QB's" generally. Romo in the NFL is a good example......

[quote]I have to say, Jesus would not be a capitalist folks. I'm amazed by the lack of correlation people see between the teachings of Jesus and the Pope.

He began to shift after he got with the girl that he eventually married due to her leanings. During all of this he maintained his economic libertarianism, but beg...

I like the idea of the Joker being a reformed mental patient a la TDKR. I think that Leger taking off the makeup would have been epic to further explore the character and delve deeper into the symbiotic relationship between the two. Of course, in the end, he would have to snap again and go back to t...

It was about a group of professional criminals pulling off major heists... Was cancelled only after three shows.

3.) Any alternatives to a simple yes or no?...

Adding to my thoughts, maybe signal boosters/relay devices(?) could be installed in the booths to provide consistent network connectivity. Might even be able to allow for a specific network access for 5 minutes or something... Could also be another way to charge passengers more, though. :casty: Perh...
