Out of the Blue

Happy New Year's Eve, as we bid a fond fondue to the year that was. There are no regrets here about that, it was kind of a rough year, so the idea that turning the page on the calendar will help turn the corner on that is appealing. Here's hoping 2013 was better for you, and that 2014 is even better still for all of us. And in that vein, please be careful if you are out an about this evening, as there will be a lot of amateur drinkers doing ill-advised things like operating motor vehicles, something that can put a damper on any celebration. And to those of you already living in the future, please just enjoy your flying cars and don't spoil anything for the rest of us.

Congrats to WarPig - he received Grid2 for his trophy.

Well, I WILL be doing that if I can ever wrest the controllers from their Lego Marvel Heroes-playing bony fingers... Bigcry

Thanks Batman. It was getting so late that I was going to wait until tomorrow to let everyone know of your generosity.

AGAIN - I really didn't want or expect anything for winning the football picks contest and made sure that Batman understood that I was just making a joke about winning anything. Last night when Batman said I needed to put something in my Steam wishlist there was no way I was going to do that, and I didn't. It did make me think about it though, and the only game that I really did want was Grid2. So today I get home from work and lo-and-behold there it was!

Thanks again Bats, you shouldn't have... but I'm glad you did!

ENJOY SIR~! You deserve it. One of the few in my list that have played that much Grid 1 (127 hours!)- just seemed like an easy pick! Race on friend!

Dolphins ‘deliberately get high’ on puffer fish nerve toxins.

But only in the territorial waters of Washington state where it's legal.

America,

That is why you're fat.

heh that site has been around for years, actually its not even really updated nearly as much as it used to - and i think it was sold off a good while ago.. because one day it stopped for a long while, there was crap in the wiki about some domestic abuse / police blotter crap on the creator.. ha just checked and thats gone now.. but anyways.. DRAMA!

DRAMA!!!

Still, about 90% of those burgers belong on that site. The only one that even looked good was the one with Jalapeno havarti and chipotle aioli. Hmmmm...

I was ready to disagree with you guys hating on those burgers... but after clicking the link, yeah that was the only one that looked/sounded good.

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

Just got back from Wolf of Wall Street. One of the best films I've seen this year. Leo needs an oscar, Jonah Hill actually puts down the snark and acted for 3 hours (with surprisingly good results), and Rob Reiner steals some of the early scenes.

Also, there's a shitton of sex, nudity, and drug use. So it's never a dull moment.

Highly recommended!

I need to see that one.
Did you see American Hustle? I thought that was excellent.
I described it roughly as Goodfellas mixed with Burn After Reading.
Jennifer Lawrence is absurdly good at what she does for someone who seems to have come out of nowhere and Christian Bale, Amy Adams, and Bradley Cooper are great as well.
Louis C.K. needs to be in more movies too.

Friend saw that one yesterday and said it was excellent as well. I'll probably catch it this weekend or the coming week. Jennifer Lawrence really impressed me in Silver Linings, so I'm looking forward to AH as well.
