Is it just me, or is that a REALLY fast turn around on the Veronica Mars movie?

Once again, different strokes for different folks. Beach access isn't the "be all and end all" for everyone. I'll pass.

I encourage anyone to consider living in California or Hawaii for a year. You will experience the freedom to be outside all year round. I believe you'll never want to return anywhere else.
Different strokes for different folks. Four years in Hawaii and 3.5 in the south (Montgomery, AL) and I far prefer a climate with real seasons. Even if I did like the warm all year climates, California would be at the bottom of the list. For reasons covered by others in this topic.

I'm glad your happy in California. I'm happy in the Mid-West and it would take lottery level amounts of money for me to switch places with you.

Biology has failed us. If only our bodies could change to just dump all those excess calories instead of storing them. I have no need to go out and hunt my next meal....

So if Team A is favored by 20 points to win, they'll give some lame reason to go with Team B instead of stating the obvious.
Point spreads aren't exactly gospel either. Mostly they are a matter of the market. Vegas wants the same amount bet on both sides. So, even if Team A "should win", if significantly more people are betting on Team B because they are more popular, Team A will start "getting" points to encourage betting on that side.

Edit: *ugh* gospel, not gossip -- damn fingers

On the Insiders not being better than us, this goes along with commentators often being a beat late -- I'd say three or four times a game one of us will make a comment on the game we are watching only to hear the commentator say the same thing 15 seconds later.

Congrats Warpig. If only Arizona had pulled off the win against San Fran. I would have been 15-1 instead of 14-2, and I suspect you would have dropped a game, and I could have won. Oh well, good battle. I hope I can do as well next year.

Well, I pulled out a 13-2 going into SNF -- with 100% of the league on Philly, that game is meaningless. Hopefully, a 13-2 is enough to get me the regular season win..

What was wrong with SC4? Beats the fuck out of the newer version.
My bad, coach. I did get my versions confused. I was thinking of the on-line horror.

You know what's sad? Seeing Sim City 4 at 75% off for $4.99 and knowing it still isn't worth buying. *sigh*

They could win that game -- Detroit has nothing to play for so they won't be any more motivated than the Vikings. Vegas says Minnesota by 3.5.

Good luck to my fellow first place league mates in the Blues' Beat the Insiders league. I've picked two games currently showing less than 40% of the league agreeing... I suspect those two games will decide where I end up...

I'd say I haven't been unlucky. Most people who live their lives in the Mid-west never get tornado damage to their property.

As a Native Californian, I would GLADLY trade winter and summer humidity AND tornado's for earthquakes. Earthquakes are over before you even know it started, where as when ya hear a tornado siren ya got maybe a min or 2 to get your shit and get to cover.

Trapped on a island?!? Are you nuts? 1)your now on a island 2)your property value just went through the roof!

To each their own.

I've lived in the Mid-west for 37 of the last 41 years. At least I know when the tornado is a danger to me, can't say that for earthquakes. And in all the time I've lived here, none of those tornadoes have come close to my property. And even if one had, I am confident the only way I'll be killed by a tornado, is if it comes in the middle of the night and the sirens don't wake me.

Those other four years I lived in the South, and frankly -- I didn't particularly care for it being warm in the winter. Winter is what makes Spring so great. That it can be 50 degrees and you feel like it is very warm.

Yes, trapped on the island. Have you lived on one? Even as a child ages 6-10, when I lived in Hawaii I "felt" the fact we couldn't drive away. We were stuck there. Granted, you aren't "really" stuck, but it's a convenience thing. Currently if I want to travel to another state, I can jump in my car and go. Not an option in Hawaii.

I'm puzzled why anyone would choose live anywhere else rather than California or Hawaii.
Earthquakes, don't want to be trapped on an island.

Okay, so what is the story here? The a gap in the way insurance works, or that Blizzard is cheaping out on their employee's health care coverage?

I just watched the video about Zina Nicole Lahr. Immediately fell in love with her. Never knew about her before and really wish I did. What a beautiful mind and woman.
Yeah, I never heard of her prior to this either. Definitely an interesting person, I'm sure it's a huge loss to the people in her life.
