Favorite thing I've read today was from Simon Pegg -

If you're sad today, just remember the world is over 4 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.


Oh, and Happy Birthday Ant!

Actually, what you're usually seeing and hearing isn't the transformer blowing up, it's the huge circuit breaker blowing. I'm not saying this is always the case, but usually the problem is fixed when the lineman comes out with that long pole they use to flip the breaker back on.

Years ago I just happened to be looking out the window in my back door and glanced up at a squirrel messing around on the top of a transformer when its tail touched the opposite pole than the one it was standing on and BOOM, blinding explosion, power out, squirrel gone!!! Scared the hell out of me! I looked some more and then opened the door to get a better look when - flip, flip, flip, the squirrel finally lands in my back yard. I swear it must of been in the air for over ten seconds. And yes, it had smoke coming off it.

Sorry about your Giants Blue, it was a hell of an entertaining game to watch. OBJ was as out of control as any pro player I've ever seen.

Hey Vern, I don't want to speak for Cutter here (EVER! ) but he might be referring to good ol' Jim Varney...

Damn. A good friend of mine died yesterday. Just waiting for the details to roll in.

Sorry to hear that Cutter. My condolences.

Yeah, I didn't know Brian Cox wasn't American until I saw him on Top Gear (RIP). The one that really blew me away was listening to Gillian Anderson speaking with her British accent, again on Top Gear (RIP).

Don't get me wrong Blue, I think Knicks fans have every right to be disgusted with the franchise - not even counting last nights draft. Who knows, Porzingis may end up being really good but at best it'll take a couple years, and correct me if I'm wrong but the Knicks hired Phil and signed Carmello to win now. Personally, I doubt any big time free-agents would want to play with Carmello anyway but that's just my opinion.

I also don't think the kid was actually crying, he was making a pouting face for the selfy he was taking.

Where I live it's better to call the city than the cops. They will issue warnings to the offender and after two or three warnings they will issue a fine. And yeah, I guess this should only be after a face to face. Although, I don't know, how someone doesn't realize that their dog barking all night just MIGHT be bothering their neighbors... you're probably dealing with a self centered asshole who won't respond well anyway.

It's one thing to earn fame for doing something great that benefits mankind (educating, inspiring, sacrificing, inventing, etc.), it's another thing to seek fame for the sake of being famous.

So does anything having to do with the arts (movies, music, etc.) count to you?

Okay.

Obviously, you don't like celebrities. Are you saying that not one of them ever deserved to be mourned or remembered? Is it just actors or is it any famous person?

Your summary is very close to what I'm saying. I find it discouraging and inauthentic that our culture mourns the death of a person who plays imaginary characters and at the same-time shrugs at the daily death of people who live normal quiet lives. Narcissistic celebrity, make-believe, behavior triumphs over humble behind the scenes contributions. That's just my opinion.


No, you didn't get what I'm saying at all.

OK BobBob, I've got a few minutes here, I'll bite and assume you aren't trolling...

Answer me this - are your friends and family more important to the world than the mother and child you described? And would said family member, friend, or even acquaintance have to be more important to society for you to be more affected by their death than two people you've never met? Does it make you a bad person if you shed a tear over the death of a pet if you don't cry over every dead human you learn about every day?

Over 150,000 people die every day and it's obvious to everyone - but you, I guess - that we are more affected by the loss of someone we know, or in the case of a celebrity, know of.

What you described is obviously a tragedy. Nobody is describing Nimoy's death as such, he lived a long life and it was his time, but that shouldn't and doesn't stop us from sharing up to 40 years of memories about him.

Blue, sorry if you think I'm "feeding the troll" (and maybe I am) but I honestly think BobBob must really think that in discussing someone's death we're elevating them above "normal" people or something.

I ended up tied with WarPig & Blue, is that a good thing?

I don't know about Blue but tying with me, at least this year, isn't very impressive!

As far as the last play last night... I get why they tried it. Wilson doesn't throw many picks, especially in the red zone. I think the key was Browner jamming Kearse so completely at the line. If all had gone to plan Kearse drives Browner deep enough that Butler has to run around him to get to his spot. Either way the ball has to be thrown lower, but hey, easy for me to say.

Another thing, what if Wilson throws a pick at the end of the first half instead of the touchdown? Everyone would have been criticizing the Hawks for not taking the field goal. If it works you're great, if it doesn't you're an idiot.

I guess this year pretty much every NFC team had to have a brutal playoff loss. The Lions, the Cowboys, the Packers, and now the Seahawks. Hell of a game though. Congrats to the Patriots.

Put me down in the MX5 realm of cars: lightweight, short wheelbase, manual transmission, crazy grip with sticky tyres, and a small but competent engine that reminds you on every shift that you're in a driver's sports car.

I'm with you, my first car was a '71 Triumph Spitfire. Not much power but it handled like it was on rails - and c'mon... I was 16 and had a convertible! I painted it silver with black accents, plus it had mag wheels and BF Goodrich Radial TA's with raised white letters (this probably means nothing to most of you youngsters but believe me, this was cool in the late '70s).

Maybe ten years after I sold it I saw another one for sale and when I drove it I was reminded about how much of a harsh rattle-trap it was and why I sold it.

That being said, to this day it's the only car that I owned that I still have dreams about.

While I hope that all of this isn't true and that they find a logical explanation for what happened, there are a few points to this that I find interesting.

If I understand correctly, both the Pats and the Colts game balls were checked by a ref before the game and were found to be legal. This means a couple things. One, that all the balls were probably checked by the same pressure gauge, which kills the excuse of faulty equipment, and two, whatever happened happened between the inspection and the game.

So, who has more to gain, or really, anything to gain from this other than Brady? Would a rogue ball-boy take it upon himself to deflate balls on his own? Maybe. Perhaps Brady made an off-hand remark about liking softer balls (giggity) and that's exactly what happened. I just can't see Brady or anyone else trusting a ball-boy to not only get away with this, but to keep quiet about it if he were caught.

I don't know, it'll probably end up as one of those things that never gets explained to anyone's satisfaction.

Thanks, but I don't know how "back" I am. I'm simply not that much of a gamer anymore so I really don't have much to contribute. I still lurk around because I like the people (even Cutter ) and the ootb conversations even if I don't know what game is being talked about. I do like to talk football though!

That being said I am looking forward to GTA5. I built the computer I'm using now to play GTA4 and overspent enough on the video card that it was actually fairly playable right from the start. I kind of hope that R* does a great job on the port but my machine still won't run it so I have an excuse to build a new box!
