re: 'Dunkirk' to be Christopher Nolan's shortest film since his directorial debut - StringedInstruments
At first I was surprised to read that but then I remembered that there isn't much dialogue in this movie. Probably going to be an intense 90 minutes of nonstop action. Maybe Fury Road style but more serious since it's based on a true story from WWII? ...

re: Who does the driving in your relationship ? - StringedInstruments
I drive. Not because I'm some alpha male that demands he navigate the family. But because when I get in the car, I buckle up, turn the key, and go. I do not check a bag, look at my face in the mirror, look for that thing I dropped, start talking about a thought I had, organize a few things tha...

re: What has Auburn really ever accomplished for their fan base to be so arrogant? - StringedInstruments
[quote] Disagree. 2006 Florida is what started the SEC getting the benefit of the doubt. If OSU had wiped the floor with them as expected, it would have been a lot different.[/quote] Yeah, well, Auburn shitting the bed against Georgia that year was what really started it all. Because it would ha...

re: Spiraling Out of Control - Advice on Correcting Diet Mistakes? - StringedInstruments
I appreciate everyone's comments and I know I rambled in the OP, but I think people are missing that I did go strict for six weeks. I did lose the cravings and was on track for my goal. But I got put in a situation where it would have been rude to tell an old woman no. I guess I'll have to in the fu...

Spiraling Out of Control - Advice on Correcting Diet Mistakes? - StringedInstruments
When I get into a habit of eating healthy, I don't crave sweets nor do I struggle with reaching my daily calorie goals. In fact, I had a four week stretch where I actually couldn't believe how easy it was to eat 1900 calories. I didn't want any more food and enjoyed watching the pounds start to roll...

re: Coach K: Why is it that other fields allow people to go pro out of HS but not basketball? - StringedInstruments
[quote]If they get rid of the one and done, college basketball will go back to being incredibly boring when the top 20 high school recruits each year go pro because someone, and they will all have this person, will be in their ear telling them they're ready. For every LeBron/Wiggins, you have about ...

re: The Hourly Income You Need To Afford Rent Around The U.S. - StringedInstruments
Why does a minimum wage worker need a two bedroom apartment? Why does any one person need a two bedroom apartment? Wouldn't a two bedroom indicate multiple people living in the place? Can the second person work? How many 40/hr a week jobs only pay minimum wage? Just looking at Alabama, tw...
