"fooks sake!"

I cracked up at the part about sweetening her up. I also liked the U2 on the radio for stereotype value.

If you live there (I have never been and have no desire to even get close to the cess pool)

At least you're open-minded on the topic.

The square? Yea, would never even dream of going there. Are there things I want to see in NY? Sure, but it is pretty far down on the list.

The question: Is there anything there that someone who lives in NY needs to go to in that area? Don't people avoid it?

Well, it's the junction of three major midtown thoroughfares (Broadway, Seventh Avenue, and 42nd Street), so it's sort of smack in the middle of things, and how Broadway veers westward as you travel uptown makes it an efficient path in many cases. People avoid the area because it's touristy, but there are tourists everywhere, so if you need to pass through Times Square, you do it.

The cesspool comment is out of date, however, though maybe you didn't mean it how I'm reading it. There was a time when the place was a dirty den of porno theaters, peep shows, and assorted crime not limited to drugs and prostitution. But nowadays its all cleaned up and commercialized, so if you have a desire to see a Broadway show or eat in a theme restaurant, or if you need to catch a bus at the Port Authority Bus Terminal, it's a perfectly safe experience. Overly commercialized and lacking some of its former character? Definitely. Cesspool? Not at all.

14 million times $25 is $350,000,000

Many copies were sold at a much lower price, but the point still stands.

Don't know if you saw nin, but I added a third media link shortly after posting this I thought you'd get a kick out of.

Made some awesome bacon wrapped chicken cordon blue breasts last night with taters and carrots. Also yesterday made an awesome fall apart roast with carrots, garlic, snp, beer, brown sugar, and some other stuff. Removed the carrots and meat, then let the beef stock sit overnight so I could remove excess fat (wasn't enough to remove) then made a beef stock veggie soup today. Man. I love cold winter cooking.

Tonight dinner is left over pork n kraut with a bit of veggie soup and jalapeno corn bread.

Stay at home daddy day care = lots of cooking.

This is making me so damn hungry right now.

Same here, though I didn't see it until this morning, so it is conjuring up images of an unusual breakfast.

Spartacus S1 had such a complete cathartic arc, that I'm reticent to watch more for fear of spoiling what I view as perfection. Also, too: the main actor sadly passed away.

In my opinion the series got better with each season.

there was a definite drop off after andy died imo. the series carried on and concluded successfully, but i don't think it got better. i actually feel they rushed the last season; their romp through the italian boot should've been much more successful and damaging before it came to an end. you won't regret finishing the series, but at least in my case, it felt... insufficient. also i really hated the chick that took over for nevea.

I stand by my opinion for the most part, though I agree at the end the actual war part of it seemed rushed, so the last season is a little uneven. But I loved everything in between, including the odd prequel season while they were still hoping Andy might recover. And I also have to agree about the Partridge Family move on Nevea... the new one was horrible.

If you let yourself be killed by a rat, you deserve to lose a quarter mil.

Pretty sure all they have to do is get near you (which they love to do, in packs). It's been months, but I don't remember dying in the fight.

That's exactly right... my buds didn't get killed by the rat, just pickpocketed.

Seriously the performances were amazing. Imagine dragons did not disappoint. Metallica with Long the amazing pianist performing one was sick. Nin peforming at the end. Seriously was a great grammys.

And the pro-bowl.. was the closest pro-bowl in years and actually fun to watch. So yes you did miss out And you missed out big time.

I'm not trying to make either of these spectacles seem inherently bad, they're just not my cups of tea.

Football is supposed to be a competition, and having a game where the outcome is basically meaningless has never appealed to me, even if the outcome is close. And having it conducted between teams that were chosen up between two non-coaches just makes it seem that much more gimmicky and less appealing to me. At least in the past you could say the NFC or the AFC won or lost. A couple of years from now when they say Team Rice beat Team Sanders you won't even be able to remember who played for whom.

As for the GRAMMYs, its the opposite. Music is supposed to be art, not a competition, and declaring "winners" at it seems extremely self-indulgent to me, especially hearing the artists go on about how meaningful it all is.

I'll give Banshee a try, hopefully it has some cute chicks!

I typically only watch a show if there is a strong female lead. Orphan Black was really good, it surprised me. I can't believe Tatiana plays 6 or so different characters so convincingly. Extremely well written and acted thriller.

Not a chance you'll be disappointed in that regard. Banshees's very strong female lead is very attractive, but the other three female regulars make her seem plain by comparison. And they just introduced a new character who's also extremely pretty, so she may end up a regular.

Did you put the butter on the outside of the sandwich? Why? Why is that even legal?!

As harlock implied, that really is key to the process of grilling bread... a Reuben is not the most common sandwich, but anyone who makes grilled cheese will tell you it's all about the butter.

I think you meant to say Reuben. A Monte Cristo is something completely different... (essentially a ham and cheese sandwich that has been battered and fried, usually served with raspberry preserves).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reuben_Sandwich

yup, but no - there is no Corned Beef in his sammich though....my favorite one is here in town by my house, uses BEEF BRISKET instead. just had one yesterday.

Yes, but he is correct... I meant to say Reuben. I was inspired when I saw a profile on some restaurant where the Reuben is different every day, because they could use any meat and it came out great, which made me think of making one with chili.

Annual failure rates are all over the map ranging from as low as 0.9% to as high as 25.4% - and one drive hit 120%.

How do you get a 120% failure rate o_O ? Are they using some kind of multidimensional measurement where the drives are even failing in realities where they're not supposed to? If so that's a pretty crappy hard-drive, but it'd be invaluable to scientific research.

People keep bringing this up as an anomaly. I'd assume a 120% annual failure rate means they average 1.2 failures per year with that model. Seems high, but nothing about that breaks mathematics.
