Out of the Blue

So after letting the dogs out in the yard while I was waiting for the water to heat up for my coffee, I wandered over to the front door and took a look at the street, which proceeded to turn into a moment right out of a corny sitcom. "What a pleasant day," or some such thing was how my inner monologue was proceeding (were this a proper sitcom, I'd have been speaking aloud, of course), "the sun is shining, there go some pretty birds. There go my dogs... MY DOGS!?!?!?" Apparently someone had left the gate unlatched, and the guys were taking this as an invitation for a walkabout. The cute part was how casual they were about it, acting as though they went on unsupervised strolls like this all the time. Anyway, it was only funny because I happened across what happened immediately, I sure am glad for that, since if I missed them, this could have turned into any of a variety of disasters. I think I need to put a sign on the gate reminding people to close it.

I call bullshit. How come when I stand up, I have to sit back down and continue?!

I think the perfect position to crap is to be in a recliner type position, opening everything up instead of cranking everything closed. In my very humble and non doctor thinking, I would imagine squatting is creating INCREASED pressure on the rectum area and causing hemorrhoids. It should be a relaxing experience, not a stressful one.

PUSHING causes 'roids. So the idea that you press your quads against your abdomen so you don't have to distend your rectum into space seems pretty sound to me.

Try it, and let me know how it goes...

Seriously, the poop science is sound. Squat toilets line you up better. If you travel abroad and need to use one, you'll probably mostly notice that your quads are too weak to hang out there for long, but it's just a matter of getting used to it.

Is that why his playoff record as a QB is 9-11? Because he "knows how to win?" Peyton doesn't get it done in the playoffs, and for the NFL that's really pretty darn important. I'm not putting Peyton ahead of Brady or Steve Young because of the way he sucks in the playoffs.

Well....not sure I would use playoff wins as an end all be all. But he does have the 5th most playoff appearences and a super bowl ring. He has tied Brent for most losses.

For most appearances, it goes Brady, Farve, Montana, Elway, Manning.

This is actually a pretty cool page with QB Playoff wins that is sortable.

Now take into account the record he tied....and IF he wins the SB this year (which they have a pretty damn good chance) he will be the ONLY starting QB to ever win with 2 different teams. If I was in Vegas, I would be putting some serious money on them right now.

And, he isn't done yet. Has all this year yet, maybe another one?

Anyway. Maybe not best YET, but man he has a good chance to take the top spot....

Best QB in history, and we get to watch him every week.

I'll gladly rank him in the top 3, though I don't know if he's really the best of all time. But you can make somewhat of an argument for it. However, he has one major, massive weakness:

He doesn't care about stats, the man just wants to win - and he knows how.

Going to be a fun year to watch the Broncos.

That is definitely true. Looking at their schedule, it really isn't inconceivable for them to go 16-0, as they play an utter collection of creampuffs.

Their team is decimated, less than half of the starters are back, and their D is toast. Payton, 400 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT.

Not a bad prediction from last night!
462 yards, 7 TDs, 0 INT.

Amazing. He is a monster. Best QB in history, and we get to watch him every week. He doesn't care about stats, the man just wants to win - and he knows how. Made Baltimore look like a high school team.

He is all class. Shows is through an through. He respects the game, the players, media, everything. His interviews are amazing. He really brings insight to the game for the public.

That's not to say a Hungry Hungry Hippos movie COULDN'T be done well.

As for Dredd, of course "good" is in the eye of the beholder, sorry you didn't like it. I did. It got a 73% audience rating on RT, which means a lot of other people liked it too. And critics liked it 78% compared to 18% for the original.

Ugh, the Judge Dredd remake? Really? I saw that just this week and I thought it was fucking terrible.

I understand they had a small budget and couldn't do much visually, but the world Dredd lives in is as big a 'character' as Dredd himself. Just ignoring the world and putting the whole movie in a concrete tower that looks nothing like the Dredd world is just a cop-out.

And then the entire movie is basically nothing but Dredd shooting people in bad-quality CGI slow-motion, instituted by a drug that would work exactly opposite to how everybody says it works, revolving around a fucking ridiculous premise that Dredd executes every criminal he ever sees, but the one black dude he can't execute because they "only" have 99% surety against him and thus they drag him along with them to kickstart their "plot."

And then the myriad plot holes, of which I think my favorite one was when they get outside on the helipad, and Justice somehow can't get an evac chopper to them in time, even though they were shown to be flying around the building. That or the "Yeah, I need to shut the building down for REASONS, is that okay?" And Central replies with "Yeah, shut it down while we have two Judges in there and we know it's a hideout for one of the most violent and criminal gangs in the city. And then when other judges come knocking at the door, we'll be fine if you just tell us to wait."

God what an appalling piece of shit movie.

Remaking an already B level movie hopefully must signify that Hollywood has officially hit bottom.

Not necessarily. The Judge Dredd remake was pretty good, much better than the original. And while I prefer original material, if they'd done this one right, it could have been good, but it doesn't look like it will be. And Original Material isn't a panacea. Look at the Battleship movie, for example. Or the upcoming Monopoly & Hungry, Hungry Hippos movies.

Coyotes don't bother me that much. I have plenty of those around here, even see/hear them around my house sometime, but they at least sound like they are a part of this planet. As supposed to these fucking foxes who sound as if they're from the HELLSCREAM dimension.


Btw, anyone here know anything about Chrome? Since about a week or so, if I use the "back" button in Chrome, instead of taking me back to the exact location on the previous page where I was, it takes me like 50% back towards the top.

For example, if I click on a "comments" section on Blues, and then hit back, it used to take me right back to the point on the page where I'd been. (ie, I'd go right back to the story that I'd just clicked on 'comments' for.) But now when I click back, I go back up about 30 stories... Anyone have any idea what might be causing that?

It's more than freaky, it's fucking terrifying. You hear that in the dark, and you think some kind of supernatural terror just spawned behind you, Doom 3-style, and is going to tear your head off. Silly foxes.

Yup, then throw in some coyote "laughing" or "whistling" and I just run inside and hide under the bed.....

I'd rather they continue Stargate Universe, but then I guess even it they made it to the next galaxy so much time would have passed the wouldn't have much in common with Earth any longer... *sigh*
Took me awhile but I totally got into that show. I didn't care for the first season much cause everyone was such an asshole, Greer was a scary psycho, Camille a manipulative bitch, Rush a caffeine-deprived lunatic. Once everyone settled the fuck down in season two and I actually started to like these characters it became my favorite show. I still watch the reruns pretty regularly.

I thought the series finale was perfect. Also just open-ended enough. I think it was only going to take them 3 years to get to the next galaxy, not 300 years. So it would still have worked.
