re: Aruba - Shaun176
I have been about 5 times. It is nice because the weather is consistant, no hurricanes, it is clean, has a high standard of living, and you go though US Customs and Immigration at the Aruba Airport. I don't find it any more expensive than tourist areas in US or Europe. It is more expensive tha...

re: Outmigration from BR affecting attendance? - Shaun176
HD TV, crap OOC sched, the cost (tradition fund), lack of free parking, and the post game traffic have killed attendance. Why spend $300 for a family of 4 and be out from 2-11pm to watch them play the sisters of the blind, when you can watch it for free, see more, and have a bathroom or beer 2...

re: Holiday Season coming.... Turducken? - Shaun176
We did a turducken last year. It was good, but didn't beat a good fried turkey, especially for the price. I think it might fall apart in an oil-less frier. ...

re: Disneyworld restaurants - Shaun176
Every restaurant in WDW is family friendly. I have 2 kids and they are fine anywhere in WDW. I am not a big fan of German food so I dont really like biergarten. It is a buffet with a lot of sausages, pork roasts, potatoes, etc. TRex is ok. Coral reef is really cool if you sit against the aquar...

re: Officer Who Arrested Utah Nurse In Viral Video Is Now Under Criminal Investigation - Shaun176
Law in Utah is that the LEO needs probable cause to draw blood from a person that isnt or cant consent even in fatal accident. The officer said multiple times on the body cam video that he did not have PC. He got mad that the nurse challenged him and took it out on her. He should lose his job. ...

re: NASA In Houston - Shaun176
I went about 10 years ago. There were some shows and exhibits. The tour was cool. They take you to mission control from the 60s and 70s. I can't remember how long the tour takes. For me, it was one of those places that I am glad I visited, but I don't think I'll go again. ...
