I'm in.....Put my picks together. I'm sure you guys will out-pace me over the season, so I doubt I'll be in every week.

I'm disappointed that there's no mention of zombies in this highly anticipated sequel. Okay some Tropicans walk around like zombies but that's different.


They're saving that for the first DLC, can't show all of your cards at once. :-)

I'm guessing promotional deal for the preseason games. Will check back when i sign up

History says no, but no guarantee. It was season long last year. No guarantee how long it will go for (says so right on their page) this season, but I was able to watch 4 games at once + red zone + NFL network from my "vacation home" in the netherlands last year.

How it works, specifically, is that the NFL is trying to grow their brand in Europe and doesn't have a distribution deal in the Netherlands. So....they give away Football for free...costs them nothing, or a minimal number of Netherlands subscribers to try and get a bigger fan base. It's like playing a game in England....

VPN is the key word here. I'm not tech support, but I'll at least return a couple e-mails if you need advice on how to watch your local teams during cable/CBS arguments......

Don't know who will check comments this late in the day...but if anyone is interested NFL game pass (Sunday ticket for non-us IP addresses) is free if your IP address is in the Netherlands.

In other news, I had good experiences with Strong VPN last year.

The whole way this played out is almost like she's escaping her EQ cult.

That's the vibe I get from this. Some of those people posting in that thread were creepy IMO.

I generally ignore comments with personal attacks. There are a few people around who like to do it with a greater then average frequency, and I just don't put any value their input into ANY discussions. There's also the ignore feature.

I'm all for stopping personal attacks between users, but I think that's the extent of where the moderation should go. I've seen a few users who will report someone...and then quote that very post and REPLY to it. That tells me that person is just doing a "I'm going to tattle on you and get the last word in".

I like text only on the front page. It's the way it's always been and the way I've always liked it. The blues page is very clean and strait forward....and if you want to see pictures you can click through to get to them. That said...it is your site and if you want to expand readership then a change like that may help. I rarely visit other game sites because lots of them end up looking like a clown vomited on a tie-die shirt with all of the pictures, videos, and other random crap they try to squeeze onto a page.

Just my 2 cents.

I'm not a fan of more zombie games, but I actually think this looks like it could be a fun game right up my ally. Very minecraft-esque. That said, I wonder if they're taking too much on....I think this may have to be my first kickstarter.

To each his own, but I'm the opposite on chicken. I cook at a low heat for a longer period of time. I don't sear the ouside like I would a steak because it's not a steak. It's a more delicate meat and the texture of a chicken gets tough when you sear it, and you're not "locking in the juices" like you are on red meat.

Brine, rub, and cook at a low temp if you're grilling it....indirect heat is even better. Bone in you always cook bone side down until it's done. If there's skin, put the rub under the skin and keep it away from direct heat.

We all cook a little differently and have our own style though.

Definitely get a full rack of spare ribs and cut them down to a St. Louis style rib yourself, that way you can have the rib tips as a greasy yummy snack while waiting for the ribs to finish.

Don't hold off on the pork butt, they're easy and you should give them a run. They do take a while to cook and EVERYONE has a different idea of how to cook it. I suggest you use a bone-in shoulder, I think they come off of the smoker with a better pork flavor and seem to hold their moisture much better at a higher temperature.

Here is a good article about wrapping and temperature rise in smoked meat.....talks about how basting isn't all it's cracked up to be.

Long URL, had to make it a tag

Does anyone else find it odd that the Amber Alert covered from the city to maybe 60 to 75 miles north, but they didn't even bother with the bordering counties in NJ? I get that the NYS Troopers are the ones who authorized it, so they can't do it in NYC, but this seems like a major hole in their alert system....the abductor just needs to choose the right bridge out of NYC.

In my opinion, the problem with this type of poll is that people who are more protective of their privacy are more likely to say "No thank you" when someone calls to poll them so you're not going to get a real sample of the general population, especially with a privacy question. I know I don't like to give people info like age, race, income, political affiliation, etc. If I don't want the government to monitor my information and make a profile of me, why would I want a random pollster to do it? I'd like to know how many people they had to call to get that 1004 person sample size.

It's funny, I stopped watching the show because I started reading the books. I know "the book is better then the movie" is an over used expression, but in the case of this story...it's so complicated and twisted up with the character plot lines that I don't think I could follow it in episodic form. The last couple books get crazy with the plot changes, sub plots, and number of characters being followed. I can only imagine how they'll turn those into a tv show without cutting too much.

Sweet....always loved I76. Now we just need a Rocket Jockey kickstarter.

I'm going to put the 7th guest sound track out there as another great oldie. I still listen to it on occasion.

I was wondering how it could be bad for the oven....but after reading the link, it sounds like they're only referring to electric ovens. I remember getting chemical burns from oven cleaner (my fault) when I was younger, so I try to avoid that stuff like the plague.

Quick question for the residents of Manstovia...what temperature do you smoke a corn beef to? I know....pastrami without the rub. I say 190, my father says 165. The google box isn't much help, opinions seem to vary wildly. Does anyone have experience with smoking corn beef to different temps,or making pastrami?

As for fund raisers I say blue holds a summer cookout at his house, complete with wings and chilli. $40 entry fee and BYOB.

If you think this game is to complex or if thats even a drawback then this isnt the game nor genre for you.

Thanks for the advice.

Check custom game options, probably can disable.

Indeed, I generally do disable them. I'm a fan of the building/culture/science portion, I don't really like the religion and spying.
