Yeah, immersing yourself in another language is very helpful, but unfortunately a bit tougher on the US side of the pond -- with the possible exception of Spanish. I mean, sure if you live in New York or Chicago, you might be able to head to the appropriate neighborhood, but for most of the country another language is a LONG way away. It's so different from Europe.

It would be nice to know a second language just for the cool factor, but at my age it's not going to happen. Unless possibly, my close circle of friends all suddenly decide we should all do it.

I was one of those who played WOW for many years, was in a very good guild and Raided all the time. I can tell you this now. 40 man raids Fuck that! Do you have any idea what itís like to try and get 40 people together at one time?
Must have been a lousy guild. I also played WoW for many years including 40 man raids in vanilla. We raided 20+ hours a week and always had extra people outside the instance waiting to join the raid.

We were the first Alliance guild to kill Nefarian on our server. One of my best memories of the game -- it happened two hours after the normal end time of the raid (2 am for me) only had 38 people, and 8 of them were second stringers, including me. I was so pumped I didn't sleep that night.

So, it can be done but I do agree it's no small task.

I love watching NFL games, but watching the draft? *ugh* Worse than watching baseball.

The last sentence of the article: "AOLís profits dropped from $1.048 billion in 2012 to just $92.4 million in 2013óa fall of more than 90 percent."

I'm really surprised they made over a $1B so recently.

I tried German in HS and college -- but couldn't get it into my brain. I am just not wired for multiple languages.

Are football/soccer teams owned by Americans given any attention in U.S. sports coverage? Clubs like Liverpool FC, Manchester United, Aston Villa, Arsenal (in part), Sunderland and AS Roma?
Basically, no. There is some coverage available on the more obscure sports channels, and ESPN SportsCenter will report on major tournament results, but that's about it.

Yeah, I was puzzled by the Portland story too. I thought the exactly same thing you mentioned, I assume wildlife is pissing and pooping in the reservoir and that this is pre-treated water. So, what is the problem?

Every time I look at this I amazed. Don't get me wrong, I love the game and played the hell out of it. But the fact it sold 1 million PC copies in the last three months? Crazy!

Unfortunately I fear I will not live to see FTTH in my area -- despite being a town of over 100,000. Not that I really need it, but if I had it, I might find a use for it.

Alright... what am I being stupid about? I cleared my cookies and cache in attempt to fix something else that wasn't working -- and now here at Blue's it's no longer remembering which topics/posts are unread.

When I come to the site for the first time in a day, I look at one topic and when I return to index, nothing is marked as unread. Ohhh, is this it? The "remember me" on the posting page... *fingers crossed*

I've always wanted someone to take a stab at doing Roger Zelazny's Amber series. HBO could do it justice. Do me a favour and talk to the head of programming and see if you can't make that happen.
Fuck yes. I offer the full use of Cutter's body in whatever way necessary to ensure this comes into being. Allthumbsup
Certainly they could make it, the obvious question is can they find someone who can do it well? I fear the chance of a good series vs. a bad one would be 50/50 at best.

Wow, I realize that "trailer" is purposely tongue-in-cheek, but it's still pretty annoying.
