The question is, how much would it cost to 'turn on' the driveway.
Yes, I meant that also. Considering they said the cost for an entire bridge for a three day storm was $250, I'm guessing it's within the affordable range.

Many new bridges have a deicing system installed. See them a lot here in MN. Helps a TON.

Some newer City Hall buildings are also installing heated concrete. Shovel, turn it on, sweep off the rest, can shut it off. My guess is if you can afford to install it, you are not worried about the price to run it.

Honestly, run it for 20 years straight - covers approximately one lawsuit if someone falls with no system in place!

I agree, it's going to be a battle of the defenses this year. I think Cam and the rest of the Carolina offense at least have the potential to have a great offensive game. I don't see Peyton being able to have an amazing game. The only thing I've noticed about Cam is that when he gets frustrated he really starts to make some terrible choices, trying to force plays and making big mistakes. Not something that normally happens to Peyton, except of course, famously, the Broncos v. Seahawks Superbowl.

Never forget fellas, age and treachery will always overcome youth and exuberance. Cam does indeed get frustrated very easily. That's his biggest shortcoming.

Regardless, for whatever reason the Panthers have been firing on all cylinders all season so this is really theirs to lose and I consider that unlikely. I'm actually pretty shocked at just how bad the Cardinals got trounced. I think most people would like to see Peyton go out on a win however. Still, any given Sunday, right?

I admit the Panthers are a pretty amazing offense. Those 6? Interceptions yesterday weren't anything special, all were terrible throws. Would have liked to see AZ win with all of the MN ties, but now really pushing for the Broncos. Cam is a child and needs to be put into time out. The showboating is not good for the game. It amazes me that him and Jordan are friends, Jordan needs to have a come to Jesus with him about being humble and RESPECTING the game.

Go Broncos. Panthers D can't get to The Sheriff fast enough. He reads D like no one else. Payton throws in 1-2 seconds, usually 1. Would love to see Payton win and retire. Cam can try again next year.

The Broncos have the corners to stop those big pass plays. AZ's secondary looked pretty bad. Got beat HARD on a lot of plays. Many plays with no coverage, light coverage, or just flat out ran by them.

Why Snow Shoveling is an Unusually Deadly Type of Exercise.

The article forgot one important thing:- If your arteries aren't clogged, you won't get a heart attack. Ever.

Don't eat foods that are high in cholesterol (which coats your arteries in plaque) such as meat/dairy/fish/eggs.

Within a a few months of eating a whole foods plant based diet of hearty foods such as french lentil shepherds pie, black bean burgers, wholemeal tomato pizzas, your cholesterol will be so low you'll begin to reverse the cloggage until your arteries are clean again, and within a year you can shovel snow until your hands are blistered, regardless of your age.

Cause people are lazy fat bastards that don't do a damn thing all year then think they can lug around hundreds of pounds of snow quickly in an environment that is utterly cold yet the body overheats.......


eh, probably dumb luck.

I always find the inability of the East coast to handle snow and weather a bit funny. We get that kind of snow in Minnesota and we just go about our business and go to work. Doesn't really affect much, maybe some school late starts.....

In Dec 2010, we got almost 2 feet of snow in 24 hours. Roads were cleared pretty quickly, took a few days for the plows to do the alleys, but when you own a Jeep.....

Shkreli's (former) legal team probably told him he was fucked, and the best tactic was to attempt to reduce sentencing. The guy sounds like a narcissistic sleaze, hopefully he can't weasel out of this.

Thankfully this guy is truly a moron and if it isn't this then it will be something else. He's bound to end up behind bars one day, I just hope he can't do anymore damage to others on his way.

Something tells me he will end up dead.

If you have to do these CoD gimmicks.....I am concerned that your game will suck. Why no gameplay vids? The ones that are out there are crap.

MICHAEL JACKSON'S MOONWALKER GAME (Teens React- Retro Gaming).

One of the best games on SEGA Genesis. Modded my Genesis with a lighter, just had to heat up and push back each side, as the game was a very early import and had rounded edges (could buy a "converter" for 40$).

It is far from perfect no doubt. A lot of valid points but no deal breakers for me. Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen PC is a great port of a console game roughly four years old. Originally released in 2012 and the expansion in 2013, so yeah, it has the Dark Arisen expansion plus a bit more. If you can get past little things that most would consider petty then you will enjoy it as a great mixture of jRPG/aRPG/eRPG. I got it for 25% off the Steam pre-order at GMG. So look for a code and grab it if you want. Watch Angry Joe's old review if you want a good/fair honest opinion on the game.

I first spotted it a couple years ago and was ready to buy a PS3 version when I checked the Plus games available list and was pleasantly surprised to find it there free. Having a blast. Using a XBone wired PC controler.

edit: here is a good review by a guy I have never heard of

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxGO-eh3dkU

Sweet. Added him to my watch list, probably one of the better video review guys out there. Jag does a great job as well. I like that he plays a ton of games that rarely get the reviews but always seem to be on my list of things to look at.
