My prediction: Panthers by 14 after being up 28. As much as I would like to see Peyton win, I just can't see it happening. I hope I am totally wrong.
Never been happier to be totally wrong.

What are the stats on "active" FB users? Say, at least one a week? I could be believe 5 billion accounts by 2030, but I doubt 5 billion active users.

Being a proper curmudgeon I have never logged into Facebook or any other social media site, unless you want to count email.

...the sequester budget slashing nonsense.
The best legislation the congress passed in probably two decades. Of course it was reversed...

Hmmm, I might suffer from RBF. I definitely do not smile much. I think I'll forward this to some friends and see if I qualify..

In my case, I'm afraid to ask.
Nah, even if I qualify I'll be amused by it. "I am what I am."

I assume someone already said this, but I can't stop myself -- apologies in advance...

Zero divided by 2, is zero.

Only 16 million? I find it amazing the number is that low. I figured there were wide swaths of the west which wouldn't have it. Hmmm...

I didn't realize how closely it followed the original until I saw the two compared...that's pretty amazing.
Guess you didn't watch the show as much as I did, I thought it was pretty clear most of it was a direct copy.

However they also removed four other permanent teeth at the same time.

Holy shit!
Yeah, I supposedly had a "small jaw" and it was necessary because there wasn't enough room on my jaw for my teeth. Supposedly this was part of the reason they were so misaligned. How valid that was/is isn't clear to me. But once again, the results have been fine. Even if current practices might handle it differently, I wouldn't be terribly upset about it.

I have a dentist who asks me almost every time I'm in about them. And I tell him as long as they're not causing an issue (I've had one removed, due to problems with the tooth in front of it) they're staying in place.
Mine were removed prior to getting braces as a teen. I did need the braces, my teeth were pretty out of line at the time. However they also removed four other permanent teeth at the same time. And I learned not so long ago that practice is now consider improper. But all in all my teeth are currently in fine shape, so I don't whine or worry about it.

Yeah, and we had multi config setups too! I hated that conventional memory issue. DOS v4 was horrible.
Well, I remember waiting for 4.01.. I also remember being disappointed with 5.0, but don't recall why. I suspect whatever it was I got over it.

Or, to put it in other words: I'm not sure it's appropriate to compare the guy behind some very cruel murders to a blown out of proportion computer game. And this is coming from somebody who for sure is not really politically correct, guys.
Appropriate? Probably not. Funny as hell? Yes.
