I'm fine either way Bats.

Weeks 12 and 13 we the killers for me. Seven people in each of those weeks got 11 picks or more correct. I was 9 and 8 in those weeks, if I had gone 11 and 11, I would have tied Pigeon. Oh well, wishes and fishes...

Blindfold the experts, give a collection of reds and whites, and they'll probably do a much better job than when you're deliberately deceiving them.
You mean, blindfold them so they can't deceive themselves. If someone gives me Pepsi and calls it Coke, I notice the difference. Perhaps the wine differences are more subtle, but if they are so subtle they are easily overlooked, then most people probably couldn't tell the difference anyway. Which is kind of the point, right?

Unfortunately for you, even casual observers know that to be true, but the only person who doesn't know it is the only person who matters. Jerry himself.
Aye. Truer words have never been spoken. *sigh*

Unlike you Blue, I know EXACTLY what my team (Dallas Cowboys) needs to have happen. The owner needs to break out of the delusion that he is a capable GM and actually hire one.

The team won 3 Superbowls in 4 years, and then Jerry Jones became the GM. Nothing but mediocrity since. Enough already. Stop screwing over your own team.

For about a decade and a half I worked with all the major telcos on a regular basis. They were all pretty bad. And it wasn't just the people answering the phones. I'd say about half of the "techs" were clueless. Lost count of the times I had to explain their network to them. Saving direct numbers to competent techs is the only way I managed to save my sanity.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens earned $238 million in the U.S. plus another $279 million internationally for a $517 million worldwide total. Not including China, where it opens in January. That's a lot of whole lotta demp.
Apparently the official number is $529m, beating Jurassic World by $4m.

I'm pretty much with jdreyer -- I'd say the film is "okay". 2 stars out of 4.

Spoilers:
The total lack of an original story as outlined by jdreyer really left a bad taste in my mouth. 30 years and this is the best they could come up with? As with ST:ID, stop repeating the same story! Write an original story!

I guess I am the only one in the world that doesn't really care about the new movie? I grew up on 4,5,6 - can't bring myself to make it through 1,2,3 - I get bored.
Saw 4 in '77 at age 15. It was incredible. Saw it probably a dozen times in the theater. Amazingly, 5 was as good, if not better. 6 nearly made me cry. I've seen 1, 2, and 3 exactly one time each. Waited until I could rent the dvd on 2 and 3. I'll probably go see 7 with my only niece and her parents. But I'm not expecting a lot, even given Blue's positive review.

They are going to quickly learn that without credit card details, people are going to just generate a new trial signup every 30 days.
I don't know about that, no one wants to start all over in Minecraft every 30 days.

Disabled and not present are two entirely different things.
