Always picking the Jets worked out real well for me last year

Edge of Tomorrow was a good movie and it's sad that it didn't do that great at the BO. I guess it did look like a generic Tom Cruise sci-fi movie to most people

I think the articles point that it resembled Oblivion too much for the casual viewer was probably spot on.

love how the bulldogs in that article look so much healthier than today's versions. also, would be nice if they did some basic fact checking. 'f-15 mustang' heh.

45 peeps in the pickem league wow. do you guys always pick the favorite or do you try to guess an upset now and then?

To get ahead you need to pick upsets, of course this has risk because it can really drop you back when you screw up. We had a three way tie for first much of the season last year until one week with a few upsets and that really shifted things around. It's just for fun though, a 50/50 pick em thing so don't sweat it too much. A few people last year did all of their picks for the season in week 1 even.

After all we did such a good job eliminating it from narrower sources, let alone the internet.

Take a stand everyone, take a stand on taking a stand too while you're at it Bulb

Edge of Tomorrow was actually pretty good so its a shame it underperformed at the box office, just reinforces studios attitude of producing more cookie cutter fare. I think part of the downturn is just the natural course of more people staying at home, movies being released to streaming platforms sooner and so many different forms of entertainment vying for attention.

Stop your fucking bitching, this is the fucking internet. Politically Correct exists on an admin-by-admin basis, and you've no right or reason to expect succor from ANYONE.

Yep. I suspect harassment will constitute anything negative that the other party doesn't like.

I quit nearly eight years ago, and I'm still waiting to experience thse benefits. So far the only noticeable change is the 60 pounds I gained and have not been able to lose.

Well at least your appetite came back?

$150 for something people didn't want when it only added $100 to the bundle price. Maybe we'll get more $200 hard drive upgrades next.

Something wrong with Canadian dollars? It's not like we like getting dinged on the exchanged by our CC companies you know.

Maybe they don't want a Canadian presence due to your countries asinine laws about foreign ownership, who knows. Doing everything in a single currency has several benefits too.

Balked? You mean Baulked? Cause saying balk makes it sound like they are sounding like chickens over there, "balk balk balk". Which I guess is quite apt anyway haha

Its in several dictionaries, including the Oxford dictionary, as both so I don't see why its so unacceptable here *shrug*

Let's get our dukes up over neighborhood though

I work over by a hospital and am alarmed at the number of staff there that smoke, sometimes still in scrubs...

Driving by the hospital here there is often a big group huddle of nurses smoking, they have to do it just off the property due to a smoking ban. Wonderful example they're setting.

Quitting smoking was one of the best decisions I made in my life awhile ago. It opened up so many other things, I started mountain climbing, biking and being able to actually taste food again was wonderful.

Tip of the iceberg, the Windows Store is filled with meaningless clutter and multiple iterations of apps. At one point I was looking for VLC and there was something like 11 copies of it.

Wow, forgot about that drive. Not much use today, but it sure was great back then. Still have mine lying around here somewhere, bet it still works too.

But enjoy the new SSD experience, if you haven't had one before! Even one of today's cheapest ones will probably blow you away...
I had a Raptor back in the day and it was unbelievably noisy and performance wasn't that much better than a traditional drive. SSDs on the otherhand are much more dramatic.

I look forward to when SSDs are affordable enough to replace HDDs altogether. Until then I'm looking at a 5TB HDD for my next purchase (the 6TB drives are a bit too expensive still).

I have a 1TB Samsung 840 EVO which does the job as a boot/steam drive. It was $290.00USD on a deep sale. 1TB is more than enough for me to keep a bunch of games installed and rotate out old ones. With the ability to move installs to different drives and whatnot it becomes pretty easy to have multiple Steam libraries anyway. Anything I haven't played in 2 years gets moved to a different drive and it still shows up fine in Steam.

I have finally cured myself of Steam Sale Syndrome, I make sure I am only playing one singleplayer game at a time and one MP game. Split attention was causing me to keep accruing games but never being able to get around to them.

(While agreeing to respectfully disagree with you) I don't believe her aim is true. I honestly think she's a narcissist, who wants to use a common (granted, real) complaint to propel herself to success, by creating as much attention for herself as she can. She goes against the status quo in order to be noticed, and the more people that notice her, the better.

Because Everyone Loves A Victim.

Agreed. The victim complex is getting really tiresome. I try to be reasonable about these things but I'm out of patience with their message. When you yell at people enough they become deaf to what you're saying.

Always follow the money

What a shock, another "my safety!" followed by a plea for money.

I'm amazed that a public figure who makes a spectacle of themselves received a death threat from someone mentally unstable, that never happens to anyone.
