They told me I had to come after two years, but I'll admit I haven't done so strictly because having to drink that poison is still one of the more vile memories I have of my entire lifetime.

From my experience, their two-year recommendation is based on the chances of catching something in time based on your prior result, so that's not something I'd want to mess with.

Apparently you can take that stuff in pill form now, so I may check into that.

Whatever makes it work, I do hope you will go back.

Do you suggest that we eat less meat?

I've proselytized enough, you'll have to work out your own diet.

Demonstration video. Nice design.

Yeah, they have a few different models... I guess the one I have is actually called the Yankee Tipper. Here it is in action.

And that is exactly how it works in practice.

Very cool. Probably dumps the bigger birds like crows and jays too, eh?

Jays are fine, and we get big grackles who can work the feeder too as long as they go one at a time, especially if they cooperate by letting smaller birds use the opposite side of the perch so it balances better. But yes, crows are just too heavy to work the system, which is probably good, because I'm sure a small murder of crows could empty the feeder in a couple of hours.

Ahhh "Bird Feeders", I remember those...before the bears came

Yeah, no bears in this area... I remember my dad having a couple of bear incidents with his feeders in the country, though. Definitely a complication where that happens.

As for squirrel-proofing, I will again recommend Droll Yankees. I have a Droll Yankee Dipper, and it remains 100% unbreached. In fact, after years of futility the squirrels don't even try anymore, they just scavenge for fallen seed on the ground.

In fairness, Obi Wan had the high ground. The high ground for crying out loud!

Wasn't expecting this. Pleasantly surprised. Does anyone know is this limited to NA only? Can any of us poor sobs from the EU hope to get invited at all?

Added a sentence to cover that. Should have been there to start.

Thanks for the recommendation Blue, Im a fan of Patrick Stewart so will try and find the first season somewhere.

Well, I'm not sure how much of a recommendation that is, it's certainly not unqualified. But I certainly hope there are others out there who like it as much as I did.

Yes, our boys in blue won over the other guy's boys in blue.

I did think it was funny that the final four teams use almost the exact same shade of royal blue as their main uniform colors.

Since we don't do cable, I am looking forward to finally being able to watch the series games on broadcast TV. But listening to the games on the radio was somewhat nostalgic.

KC welcomes the NY Mets, enjoy our 70s ballpark, which I think holds up well despite it's age. Welcome

Indeed... though the K is a scary place to visit. And welcome KC to our faux 50s park. It should be a bit more pleasant than our 60s park was, as Shea didn't even hold up into the 70s.

When it comes down to it, they don't care about deaths, they're going to do what costs the them the least amount of money in the long run. Car manufacturers have been caught in the past ignoring safety defects they discovered in a vehicle because an accountant figured it would be cheaper to settle a few wrongful death claims than recall and fix thousands of cars.

Narrator: A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one.

Business woman on plane: Are there a lot of these kinds of accidents?

Narrator: You wouldn't believe.

Business woman on plane: Which car company do you work for?

Narrator: A major one.

True. Did not see a lot of disbelief being suspended by the other people in the arcade though.

At a minimum, they need to disclose who they are, which they're only doing now after being caught...

I guess I shouldn't be surprised, as I'm sure it happens everywhere...

Whenever I see something with 100% approval based on something like three positive reviews, I assume it's the creator/author and their parents all approving. On some level it's cheesy, but it really doesn't seem that unexpected.

Of all the anti-CIG posts and pro-CIG posts...yet Blue decides to call out this one guy today when what he said was harmless.


Oh relax - he was just poking fun at his blanket statement.

It was no different from the many other posts making the same claim from either side. nin even followed it up making the exact same counter post. But he is Blues butt buddy, so I wouldn't expect Blue to comment on that post.

I actually like my Battlenet app, but I own all of their games and expansions. My only complaint is that the app doesn't include Warcraft 3 on it.

Yeah or Diablo 2 + LoD or Starcraft + Broodwar. It's a little annoying that they haven't included their classic back catalog for simple one click install. A silly omission really.

Can't you get a simple one-click install just by providing your CD key? I'm almost positive that's how I added Diablo II.
