re: Is keto best? - Big Scrub TX
[quote] Another question for the board that I have had. Will bulletproof coffee knock you out of a "fast"? I have read that anything over 25 or so calories will knock your body out of a fasted state, and bulletproof would definitely have much more than that. I am attempting to fast from dinner unti...

re: The Staircase: Netflix Original - worth a watch? - Big Scrub TX
[quote]I listened to a true crime podcast that had an episode focus on a guy who was convicted of murdering his wife when she was discovered at the base of the stairs with her head bashed in. The podcast focused on a theory about a potential Owl suspect who might have attacked her and actually cause...

[quote]fyi- they've added a few episodes since then but still no mention of the owl theory.[/quote]I seem to recall that was in the final episode of the original series. And then, didn't A&E have a follow up series called "Return to the Staircase"? Is that what this is, or is this new episodes even ...

[quote]Are you saying the state wasn’t corrupt in the staircase trial?[/quote] I actually watched it (I believe on Netflix DVD :lol:) back in 2010, so I can't remember any details.

re: The Staircase: Netflix Original - worth a watch? - Big Scrub TX
Absolutely not. It is extremely dishonest. What happened was, the French directors struck gold with their first American true-crime film (Murder on a Sunday Morning.) It featured legit corruption and did a public service bringing ugly facts to light. I believe they then decided that their next pr...

re: I don't get the hate for Skyler White [Breaking Bad *** SPOILERS ***] - Big Scrub TX
[quote]I always thought one of the points of the show was that none of the characters were really likable in the sense of being good people. They were all pretty flawed people. I didn't really hate any of them, but neither did I really like them in the sense of wanting to be friends with any of them...
