re: Most Effective Single Sound Or Sound FX You Can Recall In A Movie - stuckintexas
[quote]The sound the Predator makes[/quote] What I thought of when reading the OP. Also, the deep smashing sound of Indiana Jones landing a punch. When I was a kid and got into my first fight at school, I thought it was going to sound like that. When it didn't, I thought I was just a weakling :lol...

re: OT Help: Strange fishy smell in office - stuckintexas
Yes, it can come and go as load is applied to a circuit, causing heat buildup from arcing at a loose connection, which causes the plastic to heat up and emit the odor. Once the load is gone, the heat dissipates, and so does the odor. ...

re: OT Help: Strange fishy smell in office - stuckintexas
I'm an electrical contractor, and I get lots of customers that tell me they smelled something like fish for a while before an electrical outlet would go out. Its usually either the outlet itself or the box melting. I never smell the fishy odor, it just smells like melted plastic to me. If it's betwe...

re: Rapid fatloss diet support thread - stuckintexas
I downloaded my fitness pal, and it suggested 2250 calories a day to lose 1 lb a week. I don't think I'm coming anywhere near that. I put in what I ate yesterday, and barely got to 1600. It didn't let me see protein, fat, or carbs. It did put a note on the juice that I should stay under 84g of sug...

re: Rapid fatloss diet support thread - stuckintexas
Thanks for the comparisons to the diet in the thread. I'm not trying to adhere to a specific diet, just eating healthier and cut out bread specifically. My wife just stocked up on cereal for me, so I'll probably finish that out and go a different route. Would oatmeal be better, or replacing it wit...

re: Rapid fatloss diet support thread - stuckintexas
Okay, folks, I'm gonna lay this out and hopefully you can tell me what I'm doing right, wrong, and make some suggestions. I'm 34, 5' 10", and this morning I weighed in at 170.0. I'm an electrical contractor so I'm fairly active at work. At the beginning of May, I was 180+. I started going to the ...

re: Flaked is a damn good show - stuckintexas
I'd never heard of it but Will Arnett was on Jimmy Fallon last night. He described it as just a show about real life, not a comedy and not a drama. That seemed to perfectly sum up the clip they showed of a guy trying to fit a couch in the trunk of his car :lol: I'm gonna give it a watch...

re: D-Day: June 6, 1944 - stuckintexas
[quote]Pretty cool thing to have.[/quote] My grandfather brought one of the Japanese Cavalry sabers back home with him. He gave it to me when I was 16, because he said I was the only grandchild to ever ask him about the war. Its in pretty bad shape. My dad and uncles used to play with it when they ...

re: D-Day: June 6, 1944 - stuckintexas
My grandfather and his brother were both in the Pacific. My grandmother's brother landed in Normandy and took artillery shrapnel to the upper leg. Hee laid on the beach for 8 hours with a tourniquet around his leg before a medic was able to get him attention. Somehow, they didn't amputate it, but he...

re: Wonder Woman Tomatometer Watch Thread (219 reviews; 93%; 7.6/10) [NO SPOILERS] - stuckintexas
For everyone that's saying, "Look at all the high praise it's getting!" Do any of you worry that it's really only being highly praised in comparison to other DCEU films? That's what sticks out to me the most. It could still be a wreck but be better than the previous efforts. I can tweet "OMG Pol...

re: Hunt for the Wilderpeople - stuckintexas
I watched this with a group of friends last night. We all thoroughly enjoyed it! It had some parts that really came out of nowhere and caught you off guard. The tension in the cabin with the hunters was real despite the comic relief of the kid not knowing what he was saying. The ride-or-die ending t...

re: Best Time to Float the Guadalupe River - stuckintexas
Whitewater is a great rec since you can park there, get in the water there, get a shuttle back there, and stay for a concert. Look at their summer schedule and you may be able to plan your trip around that if someone appeals to your musical interests. Good call, Donk...
