Ive got the same thing Blue... Ive been able to recognize relatives without knowing them as well

but its all voices, male and female - actually i can remember voices much better than faces over the long term

Same here with the voices over faces, or names for that matter. It was MrsBlue who recognized that I don't have the same superpower with women's voices... she first pointed out a couple of actress voiceovers that I only recognize now that she's pointed them out, like Wendy Mallick and Julianna Margulies, but when it comes to men's voices I'm pretty uncanny.

There you go:

https://www.hotslogs.com/Player/Profile?PlayerID=2576802

Not a secret, after all

The existence of HOTSLOGS proves MMR is a secret, not the reverse.

That site uses its own formula to *estimate* your MMR because Blizzard won't tell you. No one can say how accurate it really is.

Looks fun of course, but also stupidly dangerous.

Just watching him measure the cave opening before he did it made me want to crap myself.

Blue, the bombing happened in 2005, not 2007.

I'm on a roll! Fixed, thanks.

There is nothing secret about the MMR, its a simple points based system that takes into account your win/loss ration. Nothing more, nothing less....unfortunately.

So what is your MMR then? If you don't know it, then it's secret.

Uh 7/7 lucky day?? you do know that UK people remember that date a bit like the date 9/11 is remembered in the US, right? as in "The seven-seven bombings in London"

IAW, not considered a "reverse Friday the 13th" exactly here in Europe..

Sorry, I did not recall that was the seventh, I hadn't seen any references to this morning, even on the BBC website. I wasn't trying to be insensitive, it just worked out that way.

Very slow news day Blue ? This is 3 months OLD

I'll never be able to make it up to you not passing along the announcement three months before they made it.

You want to complain about old news, look at all the sites that just reported the seven-year-old dawnofwar3.com domain is brand new (showing most of them blatantly stole the story from the original inaccurate source). Put that devil face to good use.

Not at all. Language has rules for very specific reasons. None of it would work if it was a free for all where anything goes.

Which is why you cannot come up with your own arbitrary personal definition of the word acronym.

Not so. There's always been considerable disagreement over what constitutes a word and an abbreviation. I believe it has to have an actual word as a counterpart for it to be considered an acronym, otherwise it's an abbreviation like F.B.I. or C.I.A.. ELEX isn't a word, ergo it's an abbreviation.

Words have meanings. This is not a matter of opinion.

From Merriam Webster:

Full Definition of ACRONYM

: a word (as NATO, radar, or laser) formed from the initial letter or letters of each of the successive parts or major parts of a compound term; also : an abbreviation (as FBI) formed from initial letters : initialism

— ac·ro·nym·ic \&#716;a-kr&#601;-&#712;ni-mik\ adjective
— ac·ro·nym·i·cal·ly \-mi-k(&#601;-)l&#275;\ adverb
See acronym defined for English-language learners
See acronym defined for kids

Examples of ACRONYM

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is known by the acronym “NATO.”

About what time last night Blue? Boston experienced something very similar about midnight last night.

From around 8:00 pm to midnight. MrKawfy wasn't experiencing problems, though, and he's closer to Boston than I am.

something on your end is blocking the css from loading, specifically styles.css adblock or script block being overzealous? Aside that I have no idea... and hope someone can help you

That is about all I could say about this too. The CSS isn't loading for you, but I have no idea why it would strike you individually.

Hey, Krovven, are you posting with two different accounts by chance? There's another poster that has a 'w' instead of 'v v' and I was wondering if that was also you? Nothing by it, just curious...


=-Rigs-=

Nope someone just trying to be funny most likely.

I noticed that when the account was registered, and would have taken action if it was some sort of troll attempt. But that handle actually appears to be based on that user's real name, and there is no indication that he is posting under that name to deceive anyone. Apparently it is just coincidence.

Blue, it could be worse, you could have been a Seattle Sonics fan like me.

You have my sympathies. I hate franchise moves.

I really liked the Sonics teams with Kemp and The Glove back in the day.

InBlack wrote on Jun 25, 2015, 17:53:
There is the question of how the pilots managed to land the plane if they were both blinded. I mean if they were really blinded, there is no way they could have brought that plane down. So while I do agree that shining a bright light into someone in a flying plane is a horribly stupid and potentially very dangerous thing to do, and could cause a pilot to lose control of the plane, I don't think those pilots were seriously injured. We might as well be sentencing people for driving in traffic with their headlights turned on high. (That might actually be a pretty good idea, god that pisses me off).

AFAIK most places do have laws that require switching off your high-beams for oncoming traffic.

I'm a little surprised at the reactions that think that this is not a problem since the plane didn't crash.

haha.. "treated for injuries" of having a bright shiny light in their faces? lol the cops can use some of their own medicine

did you even read that story? of course not, that would explain everything

The story was about UPS pilots, not cops. I'll assume you're trolling, that would explain everything.

when has a laser ever "blinded" a pilot enough to cause them to lose control of the vehicle?

Three hours ago.

btw, lynchmob mentality is the hallmark of sheeple thinking - so you're in good company

Awesome comment.

Maglev isn't anti-grav. They really need to stop with that clickbait bullshit. Anti-grav would be one of the most significant developments in human history. Magnets repelling each other is nothing new.

The word "gravity" does not appear once in the headline or the article.
