Now it's all about the money.

Blizzard, Activision, EA, Bethesda, Valve, CIG, Hairbrained Studios... It's ALWAYS about the money dude. These companies don't run charities. They exist to make profit.

Were you a fish in a previous life? Quit biting on the bait!

I'll never understand the hoopla around those films. The first and second one were just OK, the third one was terrible. The only 2 funny scenes in both films were the Marvin Berry thing, and Lea Thompson with the fake cans. I don't know. I suppose I'm just not dumb enough to enjoy tripe like the masses do.


Everybody has their own opinions on what they enjoy. It does take a special someone, though, to think everyone else's opinion is tripe. Congratulations on being that guy.

It doesn't take a good actor to recognize a bad one either. That applies to everything of quality in life. And just because you and the rest of the masses are easily amused doesn't make it good. In fact it's quite generally the opposite in spite of your believing you and your ilk are cultural sophisticates. Congratulations on being just another one of the multitudes of those guys.


You're entitled to your own opinion, of course. But I found the series to one of the best ever made for film. I'm a fan of complicated and philosophical science fiction, and I felt the films really touched upon a variety of social, philosophical, and technological concepts. Digestible for almost everyone in the audience - from simple action comedy to subtle irony - strewn with complex paradoxes, yet made understandable.

For example, on the social side, the Biff character is a great representation of just about every bully we have all faced at one point in life. He was the perfect antagonist to keep the pace of an ever challenging storyline. The way they made his ancestoral characters similar in all generations added to a continuity and gave each movie an epic quality contributing to a natural cohesion.

Put simply, it's one of my favorite movie series of all time. Thumbsup

Serious? He can harass people but as soon as we get upset about it our complaints are 'removed'. Why?

Meh, whatever. Perhaps I should have framed my elementary school comment as a query. It was probably over the line. I know Harlock likes to give as good as he gets, so perhaps Blue was just making a preemptive strike to prevent an all out flame war.

Yet, Harlock's personal attacks are not removed. . .

The Internet killed much of the prophecies of the 'future of technology'. The reason I say this is because we've mainly evolved virtually but not so much physically -- as per inventions and techological progress. Instead of robotic gas stations, real hoverboards, flying cars, Mr. Fusion, and weather control, we have Internet (including social media), video games, and mobile phones. We are virtually escaping vs. environmentally improving.

The good news is that just about anything that happens in Canada has zero impact on the rest of the world. Eh?

Why do smurfs believe they've fooled others because they only use lowercase letters and minimal punctuation?

Almost fell out of my chair. Did not believe I would get one.

I put in my PTO request for 12/17 and 12/18. Star Wars weekend!

PTO for a movie?!?

PTO = Travel to real places or doing something extraordinary IMHO.

Thanks for the information. My brain falls asleep watching Star Wars movies. It's made for kids. Highly entertaining as action movies, but not enough science fiction to stimulate neurons.

I thought all of the stormtroopers were clones of Jango Fett. Did the genome recipe change? Am I way off on the storyline?

P.S. Star Trek > Star Wars

Yah, they felt like they made a difference in the past but I'm reading articles that says it's really a myth. Some agree with you - it's more about the sole vs the pulling up. Some say pulling up is counter productive to pushing down, so actually your legs are fighting each other.. Seems to be a debated topic. I think the major drawback is simply walking around when the bike is parked, crunch, crunch. Tough decisions.

Hmm, can I get stiff sole shoes for platforms? Or would that not work?

I wore them a lot in San Francisco. I ride road and on the beach paths. I converted a mountain bike with city slicks and a trekking bar. I like the disc brakes and front shocks, hence the conversion.

I am wondering if the clipless will help with the hills:
