re: Rouge One - Anyone's opinions change now that the sheen has worn off? - SpqrTiger
My impression of it is still the same. Great third act. The rest is a little meh. Overall, I liked it. As an earlier poster said... one of the effects of this movie is that it shows that expanded universe stories are viable at the box office. I think this was a successful Star Wars movie. ...

re: Do you think our president should bow to kings? - SpqrTiger
There are plenty of people who suggest that we should honor cultural customs of other countries like bowing, when we are in their country. But the way I see it, other countries should understand and respect our cultural tradition. Some believe there is no definitive American culture, but they are wr...

re: Millennials earn 20% less than Boomers did at same stage of life - SpqrTiger
[quote]why does every generation have an antagonistic relationship with the prior? [/quote] Because they don't want to give up the imagined barriers to their own success. Everyone should realize that the only real limitations in life, save for a few extraordinary cases, are self-imposed. Don't...

re: High school dating assignment - SpqrTiger
I admit, this assignment is kind of weird, but at least they are attempting to teach them something useful. They didn't think it through all the way, looks like... but the spirit of the exercise isn't terrible. Just the execution. ...

re: Man vs. German Shepherd - Fight to the death - Who wins? - SpqrTiger
This is really no contest. The human wins every time. That's not to say that the dog will do no damage. Of course it will. But a human is an incredibly dangerous animal that can take an amazing amount of damage before going down. The problem is that the dog has basically one real attack option, ...

re: People against the legalization of Marijuana, a query. - SpqrTiger
I can't stand marijuana, but I'm for its legalization, regulation, and taxation. This is because I'm practical. If 1/3 the people in the U.S. would use it, we might as well get a cut of it. But let's not fool ourselves. Increased access to marijuana will mean increased usage. And that means: M...

[quote]Felt like last night was "Flea Night" on the tour.[/quote] It was a great show. I went with my son, and many times during the show I told him, "Flea is the best" or "Wow. Flea is so good live." He was a legit music superstar last night. I've heard the "No Frusciante, no care," argum...

re: Welp....here's a new one with the SO - SpqrTiger
OP... I agree with you. Both of you should represent the other, in public, as well-mannered individuals. Holding a fork right should not be something that's too much to ask. It would drive me fricking insane, honestly. Your SO should handle a little coaching in this much better than she does. You'...

re: One Last Meryl Streep Thought - SpqrTiger
A couple of thoughts about this. First, this is a woman who has been so celebrated and privileged her whole life that the Golden Globe Lifetime Achievement Award is basically meaningless. This is evidenced by her use of limited time to criticize the leadership of someone who hasn't even taken off...

re: Are LED bulbs really worth the investment? - SpqrTiger
The short answer is yes. You made a good choice. With that many lights, your LEDs will save you a good amount of change over their lifetime, which is very, very long. There's really no disadvantage to LEDs other than up-front cost, and even that is starting to fall. ...

re: Think of a gift for a 29 year old married guy, no kids - SpqrTiger
Depends on what he's into. Golf? Take him for a round somewhere you ordinarily wouldn't go. Your treat. Fishing? The nicest reels are over $100, but you can still get him a pretty good one. Shooting? Ammo is always a welcome sight. ...

re: Every Single Myles Brennan UAAAG Possession - SpqrTiger
My thoughts: Looks real small out there. Needs to get bigger, or he's going to get hurt. He will have time to do this. Nice zip on the ball, and he puts it where it needs to be. There were a couple of plays there where he was locked into the long receiver by design, and those two throws wer...
