Yep Raiders are done. How about Chiefs vs Falcons?
The Falcons are short on playoff experience which statistically seems to matter. But they might get there, certainly more likely than Cutter's Raiders pick. Wink

NFC championship Packers v. Lions
AFC Pats v. Raiders
Superbowl Packers v. Raiders with the Pack winning of course.
I'm skeptical Oakland can win without Carr. The Lions also seem unlikely -- with Stafford having a splint on his finger, plus them ending the regular season with a three game losing streak... I just don't see them winning a game in Seattle.

Packers and Patriots are reasonable picks. The Giants have had the Packers number in "recent" playoff games, but I think the Packers are due and Rodgers is red hot.

I went with my heart, picking the Cowboys over the Chiefs in the Superbowl. I wouldn't bet money on those picks, but it would make me happy.

Why is it always the British Royal Family?
I'm guessing that's a rhetorical question, but just in case it wasn't the answer is pretty obvious. The US started as British colonies. We share a common language. The UK is now one of our closest allies. We may have kicked out the British monarchy roughly 240 years ago, but there are still many things that tie the two of us together.

After much hemming and hawing, I decided not to get NMS for the current Steam sale price of $35.99... have some interest, but even after the Foundation update I think it either needs some more content or a lower price.

Also glad to see Factorio making the list -- great game.

25. Re: First Trailer: Ridley Scott's Dec 25, 2016, 23:28 Mr. Tact
 
So, it is a reboot? Based on the trailer it's cable/satellite bait. I'll wait for it to hit the movie channels. I'll have to see some really good reviews to bother seeing it in the theater.

Edit: Looked around a little more, apparently "Alien: Covenant Will Bridge Prometheus And Alien" I stand by what I said before.

Blade Runner 2049 teaser trailer just dropped: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDscTTE-P-k

Looks great to me. Will be a long wait.
Hard to tell from the trailer but at least there was nothing to indicate it would be bad. I will continue to hope for the best while expecting not too much and look forward to seeing it.

No apologies necessary. SNL did it best but you have to pause to read all of them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAhF8tPqafQ&t=28s
Haha. And that list didn't even have two of the three things I noted, I'm sure there are more. It is looking more and more like it will be a total train wreck. Here's to hoping the Rs in the Senate have more guts and brains than I think they do..

Pretty sure we're fucked.
Apologies in advance for turning the topic to politics. Prior to the election I told someone paraphrased, "Trump being President wouldn't ruin the country, with the exception of turning the SCOTUS even further to the right for another generation." And I believed that at the time. Now, I'm not so sure.

A Secretary of State nominee whose only job in his entire adult life has been working for Exxon-Mobil, and has been awarded the highest honor a non-Russian can get by Putin.

An Israeli ambassador nominee whose rhetoric would get him arrested for incitement in Israel.

An Energy Secretary nominee who previously said as someone running for the GOP presidential nomination, that he wanted to eliminate the Energy department.

The list goes on and on... he actually might be able to do far more damage than I thought he could....

Electric snow shovel? Really? 1) hard to believe it is sufficient 2) it sounds like a bad idea in general...

Over the years I have considered getting a snow blower multiple times and as I age my resistance is lessening all the time...

I was critical of the story in TFA, but I still plan on seeing Rogue One. I feel if nothing else, I owe it to my hatred of Lucas' betrayal to see films clear of his hands.

Melt them? Weird. Never saw an instruction about that. Best I did was get to about level 108 -- IIRC.

I've heard the true story behind the McDonald's coffee thing before, but it's a great example of how omitting key facts from a story and making some implications can completely turn people's perception of the event and outcome. I was too young to care at the time so I don't remember how the news first reported it, but it certainly became (unfairly) a poster child for frivolous lawsuits that paid out.
Yeah, I didn't know that many details but I was aware that McDonald's had admitted they were making coffee too hot. Kinda makes me glad I stick to iced coffees...
