So did I, but then, I am absolutely fascinated by Milla, which may be the main motivation there.

Same here, ever since Fifth Element, I am her biggest stalker of all.

That, I think, is probably the funnies/most idiotic thing I have read in a long time. It's funny that she actually waited for the police, they must have stalled her, bt still...The mind that told her Wal-mart would have just under a mil in cash for her, let her wait for the cops to show up. Maybe they were "preparing the cash."

There are different kinds of punk, some people yell and play instuments, some actually have talent.

I have tons of cover songs, there is a punk band called Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, all they do is covers, it's a side project for all the members. There are always CD's made exclusively for covers. There's a whole series of punk and ska cover CD's.

got about half way through the first one, and threw it down in disgust.

I was right there, except I can't start reading a book and not finish it. The problem is this book is an omnibus of the trilogy. It's fucking huge. I just now finished the first book. I hope the next one has something original.

Well, Shannara is easier to read through because the writing is of a lower caliber. There are some enjoyable moments. I just can't shake the fact that his ideas are so unoriginal. I remember the first fantasy books I read were Dragonlance trilogy when I was in gradeschool/highschool, I loved them then, I recently re-read them. Not as good as I remember them. Like I said though, I am only closing up the first book, there are 2 more for me to read. Not sure where they are supposed to go from here. Seems like this first book doesn't need sequel.

Well, true, Tolkien invented most of the things that involve current fantasy stories. This Shannara writer is terrible at making it seem like he had an idea to write down. WOT volume one didn't seem so plagarized as this book does.

This is only the first book I'm referring to, have not yet finished it, but I think I am close.

1. The bad guy is a spirit that want to enslave everyone.
2. Goodguy has magic stones that pinpoint his whereabouts.
3. There is a HUGE battle in a city very much like Helms Deep and the layout is almost the same as the white city in LOTR (can't remember the name...)
4. Bad guy is blacking out the sun to empower his evil beings that are weakened by it. These evil beings are driven by his will.
5. Thanks all I can think of right now, there are tons more.

I will check him out, I just recently started reading these books, I remember Shannara being recommended by someone, kind of disappointed so far, though. I read 4 books by Terry Pratchet, all involving Rincewind in the Discworld. I'm hooked on this guy too.

Edit: I know Helms Deep isn't a city but it's description is the same, just a larger scale.

They treated Faramir like shit.

Gimli is the joke of the movies. He is often seen with no stamina, the books tell the opposite of dwarves. He is the butt of all the jokes.

Edit - Keep forgetting to say this, I just started reading the WOT series. If you are creating a 10 book series your plans are already formed from your wallet's point of view. I only bought the first book, read it, loved it. Just bought the next two. Currently I'm reading the Sword of Shannara trilogy. IMO, this book (it's an omnibus of all three) is crap compared to the few fantasy books I have read. Almost every damn scenario, that I have read through, is taken from Tolkien.

Soon as I hit the link of the day, I saw that "Dude, WTF!" T-shirt add. I startled some people walking by my office, laughing at it. Never even got the chance to read the story.

I have a feeling she just turned 18, that's why he's getting her over here asap. Sounds like they have never seen each other face to face.

I'm still amazed at how many assholes drive in the left lane. It's not the fast lane, it's the passing lane. If you aren't passing anyone get back in the fucking right lane. That's my all time greatest pet peeve.

When I drive my mother's cadillac I do feel a little more arrogant. I would say owning one will beef that feeling up a lot more.

I was in a carpool at one time. We were driving on an entrance ramp to I95. There was an idiot woman on the shoulder going in reverse because she used the wrong exit. The driver of my carpool honked the horn and she starts yelling at us.

I don't care what you think of me after I say this, but the majority of bad drivers are women. The majority of stupid driving techniques like what I described are from women.

Now that you mention it, he did say something about anit inflamatory. I looked once at drug store didn't know what to get so forgot about it after that, didn't give it much thought. How can I find a good chiro? If you speak the truth, I could have just gone to a chiro and he'd pop me back into good health? I'm not a rich guy, and my benefits aren't too great. I doubt my policy would cover going to a chiropractor.

I go with pinched nerve too. That's what my doctor told me, when I had the upper back/neck pain. I had it a few months ago, so severe that I could not sleep. Doctor gave me relaxer and a killer. Can't remember if either of them worked, but the pain lasted a little over a week. It would hurt if I turned my neck to a certain degree or look up or down. I drained all my energy, I sat in bed sweating when I couldn't sleep. It just went away, hopefully you have the same luck.

Lazy? Do you mean too busy reading http://grouphug.us ?

I have read it so much I think this is my second lap. I get repeats, but then a couple pages down, there's always a new group of crazies.

Windows key + E opens Windows Explorer. Among my most used shortcuts.

Win + R opens run command.
Win + F opens find files window.

I get occasional use out of those too, sure there are some I don't even know about even.

I can attest to the putred taste of Vanilla Coke. I can also attest to, without even trying, the horrid taste of Pepsi Vanilla. But, normal versions, A-OK. I could care less what brand I drink, though I prefer Coke. Diet Coke is disgusting, Diet Pepsi is fine.
