Stephen Hawking is truly an amazing person. Oh, and a pretty good physicist too.

12. Re: Dear Powerball Winner: Take Our Advice and Take the Annuity. Jan 13, 2016, 13:51 Mr. Tact
 
I think if you are under a certain age you should take the annuity. What is that age? Well, it is a 29 year annuity, so if you were 80... why bother. Then again, if you are 25.. annuity for sure -- for all the reasons articulated. How long are you going to live? What age did your grandparents live to?

For me, while I might live another 29 years, I'd suspect the over/under statistical number given my family history, health, and general lethargic life style is in the 20-25 range. And since I have very limited family, I'm not worried about leaving money for anyone. So give me the cash. Hell, the goal will be to end up spending it all before I die.

Hey Blue,

I bought a pair of these when I needed new winter boots. I had previously used hiking/backpacking boots as my winter boots and it had work well and they had lasted over 20 years. Had these new ones five years and I love them.

Agreed, I abuse the fuck out of that. Per my order history, amazon says I had 148 orders in 2015, 145 in 2014, and 150 in 2013. That's .66 cents an order for two day shipping, plus movie and music streaming? That's a hell of a deal.
Holy cow! That's two or three things every week! Yeah, anyone ordering that frequently from Amazon should have Prime,

Even though I am 0 for 4, did not pick any wildcard team to advance to the next level, so still hanging in there, in last place...
It was the first time EVER, that all the home teams lost. I was 2-2 missing Washington and Cincinnati. I really struggled over picking Cincinnati, but in the end I figured they would pull it out. And they did until, ... Burfict and Adams threw the game. Green Bay beating Washington really surprised me. Everything they had been doing wrong for the last six weeks, they finally did right. I guess Washington looked stronger than they were in part because of the division they came from.

The list of people Bowie worked with or wrote songs for is enough to make any musician jealous: Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Freddie Mercury, Mott The Hoople, John Lennon, Brian Eno, Pete Townshend, Trent Reznor, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Glass, Robert Fripp, Jordan Rudess, Massive Attack, TV On The Radio, Goldie, BT, Placebo... the list goes on and on and on. Shit, he offered his song "Golden Years" to Elvis Presley, WHO DECLINED IT.
Don't forget singing "Little Drummer Boy" with Bing Crosby on the 1977 TV special "Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas."

The powerball is $1.3billion, an $806 million lump sum.
I was pretty surprised it rolled over again. I figured for sure there would be a winner, probably multiples winners on Saturday Night. I saw one article saying California normally sells about $1 million of Powerball tickets a day. But on Saturday they were selling $2.8 million an hour. However, I saw something saying that only about 75% of the possible combinations had been purchased.

The thing to remember is that while you might only have 1 in 292 million change of winning -- your chance of winning is just as big as any other ticket buyer. It definitely has reached crazy money territory.

They don't need a new story for HL3, TFA just proved that. (sorry, I couldn't resist)

Sure there are a few similar plot settings and ideas but TFA stands up just fine as it's own movie.
My problem isn't with the movie itself, my problem is with the movie makers failing to fulfill the potential of the movie. Thirty years they've had to think on this, and repeating a previous story was the best they could come up with. IMHO, that is a failure.

Seeing as they apparently don't need to write new stories for Star Wars movies their potential is unlimited, right?

TFA becomes only the second film to earn $750m domestically. Avatar is the only other. It took Avatar 253 days in release to reach that mark, it took TFA 18 days.
