The Fifth Element is back in theaters this week for its 20th anniversary. tomorrow's the last day. think i'll have to catch it again.
Ha! Could never live up to my original viewing. Saw it with a group of friends, when Leeloo is looking through the encyclopedia I had an inspiration and at the appropriate moment I yelled out, "V is for vagina!" LOL.. one of my friends claimed it had been his favorite film but I ruined it because now he always hears that...

Not sure which addict you are referring to, but the opioid epidemic is definitely a big problem in the US which isn't going to go away any time soon. Even if we turn our brains on and start being smart about it...

Edit: Oh, the Virginia beach guy I assume...

When I got to college I had never heard of frats before.
You hadn't seen Animal House prior to going to college? Blasphemy! (unless you are a hell of a lot older than I thought)

Apologies, honestly. I avoided it for two months now and finally gave in, and once I did I couldn't not say something.

Edit: From now on, anyone stupid enough to mention to me they were in a frat., my response will be, "Cool. How many people did you haze to death." Totally unfair, but totally deserved.

Okay, old news that I have been purposely ignoring... finally read an article on the Penn State hazing death. OMG. I hope everyone involved does jail time. Absolutely ridiculous and unforgivable...

Val Kilmer wasn't doing too well either but I hear he's on the mend from oral cancer.
I had missed the news on Kilmer. I like him a lot, done many roles I liked. According to his Wikipedia page:

"In January 2015, Kilmer was hospitalized for what his representative said were tests for what could be a possible tumor. Kilmer said on social media, "I have not had a tumor, or a tumor operations [sic], or any operation. I had a complication where the best way to receive care was to stay under the watchful eye of the UCLA ICU." After previously denying persistent rumors that he had been diagnosed with cancer, Kilmer said in April 2017 that he had a "healing of cancer"."

Back in the day when hubs were 250 dollars a port, and bridges were a thing in networks because switches were too expensive.
I was surprised about 5 years ago when getting my CCNA that I had to know how bridges worked. Figured by then Cisco would have simply dropped it out of the curriculum...

The only sci-fi movie, in the past decade, that I found worth sharing is called "The Man From Earth". Seen it?
It is an interesting film, I enjoyed it. Not a traditional sci-fi film though.
Caught the TOS episode "Requiem for Methuselah" recently and noticed it was written by Jerome Bixby, who also wrote "The Man from Earth". So, I went digging and found this on Memory Alpha --

"An element from Bixby's story – that of an immortal man who became several of Earth's historical figures – was mirrored in his final screenplay, which became the film The Man from Earth."

Also, a gallon of gas is always a great present! Maybe in a pink gas can?
Which could double as a solution to the home renovations!

Oh please, oh please, oh please.
The only way Trump is getting impeached is if he is legally recorded admitting to a criminal act -- even then I wouldn't bet money on it. And as I indicated previously, getting rid of Trump would just mean Pence would become President, which might actually be worse. Additionally, remember -- in the unlikely event of Trump being impeached and removed from office, he will face no penalty. At the very worst, Pence will pardon him which would mean in accepting the pardon he'd have to admit to whatever he was charged with.

doni suggests there may be ‘tapes’ of his private conversations with former FBI director
From another topic...

The funny thing for me about Trump raising the possibility of there being a tape of his conversation with Comey is this --

When I first learned about the dinner and the different versions of what was supposedly said by both parties... the first thing I thought was, "too bad Comey isn't a paranoid nut too, he might have recorded the conversation and we'd have proof (possibly not legally collected) of Comey's version."

Then Trump came out this his follow-up statement. Freaking hilarious to me.

And so the GOP police state begins. Piss off one of the GOP elite and expect the jackbooted thugs to come drag you off never to be seen again.
President Pence will hopefully be very different from that coke sniffing nutcase in the White House.
If you take the time to look at Pence's political history you would realize you'd probably rather have the "coke sniffing nutcase in the White House." Pence is doubly worse because he is just as crazy but is a practiced politician. He might actually get some of his insane legislation ideas passed...

If I add up all the time a contractor was here it is only about 16 hours (plumbing, electrical, general). Otherwise I did majority of it.

My $25k bathroom will end up costing about $6k.

That being said, the delay is because of the way I chose to have it done. To me, it is worth it.
Well done. I wish I had your drive. I could do the other bathroom and get rid of all the popcorn ceilings... but it just isn't in me...

IIRC, firing Cox was what started the cascade of leaks against Nixon that got him impeached.
Ahh, I remembered it was all falling apart already when it happened, but thinking about it some your recollection makes a bit more sense...

Bathroom project is stalled out. Tile people either don't show at all or won't return messages......
Bummer. I have to say, I definitely paid near the top end for my bathroom remodel, but at least it went well at every step of the process. ($30k for a strip to the studs, replace everything)

Comey is out. Very Nixonian.
The question is really... will it be the same mistake that Nixon made? There's always hope.
Which Nixon mistake are you referring to?

In the US, does it really affect value/ability to sell if there are minor defects? In the UK, anything of any condition usually just sells, and some parts it doesn't add value to have it up to a decent standard.
The return on investment is pretty good depending on what you update. Bathrooms and kitchens top the list of ROI. It is possible to do $10k of improvements and increase the value of the property $20k or more if done correctly. I don't know what the sales stats say about it, but my personal preference was move-in ready when I was house shopping. I'd rather pay the $20k increase in price then have to deal with doing the renovation myself. Witness Blues problems -- it is not a simple prospect.
