Re: AT&T delivers on 1Gps promise in Austin

Interesting to see this since this week I am switching from AT&T broadband and phone to Comcast after staying with AT&T since they first brought broadband DSL into Independence, Missouri. Why the switch? I pay about $63.50 a month for 6 Mbps Uverse internet and local phone. Comcast will give me 50 Mbps plus port my phone number with unlimited Nationwide calling for $40 a month the first year, and $60 a month the second year. I avoided the $8 a month modem/router charge by buying my own unit for $85.

Google fiber is not planning on coming into my part of the KC metro, so this is my best option at the moment. Computer

Blue thank you for featuring astronomy-related topics. However, I feel the Supermoon hype is largely just that - hype. Also wanted to point out meteor is the proper term for the streaks in the sky, if they survive (most don't) those that land on Earth are then called meteorites.

Cue Arabesque - Keep looking up!

Re: The throwaway line in Aliens that spawned decades of confusion.

The one thing that jumped out at me from the article was in a screen shot of the instructions from Weyland-Yutani - I've seen that computer screen every time I watched the movie and never noticed they screwed up in using "insure return of organism" when it should have read "ensure return of organism".

Weird huh? Dunce

It's weird I just re-watched Thunderdome twice about two weeks ago, then this trailer appears. Just don't know about Mad Max without Mel. Policeman

I wanna go on that Waterslide..

It has been interesting watching the local TV news wring it's hands over the delays Schlitterbahn has experienced in opening this slide. Seems prudent to me, test, adjust, test. Would I go down it? Let me stand near it and latch my eyeballs on it, then I'll decide. They should be able to sell some nifty T-Shirts like "I was Verruckted at Schilitterbahn!" or "I survived a Verruckting" Grin

Re: Here's Why Soda Is Even More Unhealthy Than You Thought.

Seems to me FDA needs to ask some of these drink manufacturers why their ingredient label fails to disclose the presence of high fructose corn syrup. Clear cut case of mislabeling. So much for Blue's favorite Mexican Coke. Drinkers

Yeah, St. Louis makes a great stand-in for a post-apocalyptic New York. That about sums up my opinion of St. Louis, in KC we call it the Gateway to the East. Flamethrower

Thankfully Pepsi Throwback is easily and routinely available here in the Heartland. What is harder to find is chocolate syrup that is not made from high fructose corn syrup. Hershey wake up! Protest

Re: U.S. Prisons Play Pirated Movies to Inmates

Wow, my parents had a video store during the 90s and they supplied movies to the medium security state prison in town. They of course got the real deal, but it was always interesting to hear what movies were "Ok" for the inmates to watch. Popcorn

I've done some of what Cutter suggested and have greatly reduced my grass lawn area so that now I can mow inside of 10 minutes and all of it is on one level, no slopes. One thing that can help grass is pelletized lime, leaves falling off trees can acidify a lawn over time and grass doesn't like it.

Re: Pure Chess Trailer (PS4)

I have the PS3 version of this and see only one new set of pieces (the translucent glass looking set). As for most of the other sets, I find myself only playing with a couple, as most are too confusing as to what piece is what. The confusion is not worth the novelty.

Re: America's Ten Best Cities for BBQ

KC is number 3! They mention Arthur Bryant's, but they should also have mentioned Gates - walk in the front door and have "Hi May I Help You!" screamed at you. Oklahoma Joe's is a relative newcomer that's getting a lot of good press, but Arthur Bryant's & Gates are the pillars. Drool2
