Out of the Blue

We had an incredible turnout for Halloween last night, as the trick-or-treaters were undeterred by unlit streetlights, possible electrocution, and a tree lying across the walkway to our house. The kids we get are so sweet and polite I want to rush out and put them all in charge of the world before they lose any of that.

Speaking of being king of the world, I went all Leo DiCaprio on the NFL picks last week and ended up at 11-3. Verno, Cutter, and Jivaro were 9-5, Creston and Batman were 8-6, and Rigs paid the price for some bold picks with a 5-9 record. Here goes for this week: Chargers, Packers, Lions, Bears, Broncos, Redskins, Ravens, Dolphins, Texans, Seahawks, Buccaneers, Giants, Falcons, and Saints.

I must be from Mars too then! It's not so bad here. Although now I feel like Doctor Manhattan

Hello fellow Martians. I too have not played COD or seen Titanic.

High-fives all around.

WOW!

Did you guys see the price of CoD Black Ops 2?

Pre-Purchase Call of DutyŽ: Black Ops II
$59.99 ADD TO CART

Pre-Purchase Call of DutyŽ: Black Ops II Digital Deluxe Edition
$79.99 ADD TO CART

Call of DutyŽ: Black Ops II Season Pass
$49.99 ADD TO CART

HOLY SHIT!

If you don't want to be booted from a game, you have to spend $130.00 up front!!!

That is the dumbest thing I've seen in awhile, can't believe people will pay that kind of money for yearly CoD iterations.

I know right!? It has actually turned into WoW. Just pay up front instead of monthly.....

I've never played a CoD. What do you mean? You can get booted from games for not ponying up for the Deluxe Edition?
If you skip the Season Pass, you definitely will if it switches to a map you don't have.

Or play on consoles, where there are separate servers for those with maps and those without. And few people seem to be with, making it nice and easy.

Still a scam ad at the top hanging around:

"Mom Makes 77/hr Online Exposed - Minneapolis - Saint Paul: Is it a scam?"

www.usjobresourceonline.com

Sent that to you last week Blue.
All of those organizations have been investigated by the US DA.

I also got the takeover ad at 7:57 PM EDT. Note: I'm not complaining, I would install spyware for Bluenews; just wanted to let you know.

The takeover went to http://www.myspace.com/intgd/splash.html

More power to Lucas if he wants to use his money for philanthropy. I totally respect that. It may even make up for the evil done with Eps 1, 2, & 3. May he be as successful as Gates and Buffet.
