    Paintball Anyone?

    I remember when speedball first came out. It was a california concept. I guess there wasnt enough cheap land in california to play traditional paintball. Anyway, speedball was great when all there were was pump action guns. These days with semi autos (yes some semis can fire 12-15 balls per...

    Which is the best ratio in HDTV: 16:9 or 4:3

    I am also in the market for a new big screen. I am leaning towards the 4:3 TV. Here are my reasons: - Most of the material now is 4:3 - A good 4:3 TV will show 16:9 material and I am already used to the horizontal black bars...which leads me to - Im not used to horizontal gray (sometimes...

    Paintball Anyone?

    Love the game! I have been playing on and off since 89, but I have recently put it to the side. Because of the cost of all my hobbies, I had to choose between paintball, home theater, volleyball, and watergardening, which ones to drop. My knee kept me out of volleyball and between the rest...

    NFL Defense Question

    I had always thought that a blitz is when you send more than 4 men after the QB. 3 is a standard rush, 4 is a 4-man rush, 5+ is a blitz. -ikiru

    Building a new home in Wiley, Texas and I got some questions

    Oh yeah, speaking of drywallers, if you put cable down and you have some wire hanging out (I have a bundle of wire hanging out of my closet wall that I am going to use to connect to the components) make sure you label the bundle with "NO CUT!!!!" Dry wallers will cut any hanging wires in order...

    Building a new home in Wiley, Texas and I got some questions

    My wife and I are building a house in Corinth, TX (between Lewisville and Denton) and we just had our pre-sheetrock meeting with the builder. Here are some things that I have picked up. 1. When they put the wiring in, make sure that the phone wires do not run parallel to the electrical wires...

    What I don't get about Chinese Restaurants

    NO TO BUFFETS!!! They were great in college when one meal was all I got on the weekends, but now, if Im going to spend money going out to eat, I want to enjoy the food (obviously I have not found Morimoto's Iron Gourmet buffet yet :) ). To the credit of buffet places, buffets are very...

    NFL 2002 Discussion Thread!

    I am looking forward to a few teams this year: 1. Denver Broncos - Last year they were destroyed by injury and internal strife. If everyone could stay healthy, then this team may be a playoff contender. 2. Pittsburg Steelers - They did everything right last year except beat New England...

    Ok, so I'm married now ... am I suppose to feel "different"?

    I have been married for almost a year now and let me tell you, the change here is very noticeable. My wife and I didnt live together before we got married and when she moved in, WHEW things changed. We bought a bigger bed together, bought living room furniture together, bought a new car for...

    A+ certification

    I studied light for the A+ and found it really easy. In fact, it was so easy, I was almost unsure of my answers. If you have any experience at all dealing with computers, then you are in good shape for the exam. Just find out HOW they are going to ask the questions (braindumps and exam crams are...

    "Southwest will charge large fliers extra fare" - What is your opinion?

    On a lighter note, if Southwest Airlines didnt want bigger people flying their planes, they are going in the wrong direction. They need to make their seats SMALLER. How many bigger people would want to fly Southwest then? -ikiru

    "Southwest will charge large fliers extra fare" - What is your opinion?

    I too am sad that this topic is even being talked about. I can't understand what Southwest is thinking. My prediction is that someone in the "great ideas" department is going to be unemployed soon. I think people in this country are too spoiled. So what if you have to sit between two fat guys...

    "We don't work on commission"...

    Next time you are in Best Buy and they tell you the non-commission thing, tell them that you would like to buy the product and a PSP (product service plan) from their co-worker (Best Buy doesnt make much money of electronics, their money is made from PSPs and they push their employees to sell...

    New car recommendations wanted!

    Nissan Pathfinder. My wife owns one (actually we both do, but if you ask her, its her's) and it is a very nice vehicle. I like it because it has plenty of power, comfortable ride, and handles like a car (stiff suspension, not bouncy all around like a truck). Good Luck! -ikiru

    splitting 10's at a blackjack table

    The only time where i would split 10s (if I was feeling really lucky) is when the cards are fresh and the dealer is showing a 6. Mostly, I stick by the saying "never split a winning hand". As for double downing elevens, I never double down when the dealer has an 8 or greater showing. -ikiru

    Trading Spaces- designer Frank must be stopped!

    I like some of Frank's work. Of all the designers, I would have to stay away from Hilde. I dont know what she is thinking sometimes. Did you see the episode with the red and white "fantasy hotel suite" type of bedroom with the fuzzy pillows....YEEEUKKK!!! My favorite room was one of Laurie's...

    Entertaining spin on the Empire in Star Wars

    Very interesting read! I would have to say that I tend to agree with this guy (a small part of my childhood still cant think of Luke as anything but good). Im suprised that this kind of view hasn't shown itself in any Kevin Smith type of movies.... -ikiru

    Why do NFL teams keep giving Ryan Leaf a chance?

    Ryan Leaf is an exceptional athelete. However, he is not very good when it comes to the mental aspect of the game. Im not saying he's dumb, but his decision making process is not at NFL standards (theres a lot of thinking required in a small amount of time before 300lb linemen introduce you to...

    And as for last night's _Enterprise_...

    How many want to bet that they introduce Q in the next episode? :) They dont seem to have any imagination these days. Have they ever done an episode of star trek where the plot is a musical? I saw Les Miserable this weekend and afterwards I thought that it would be neat to see a star trek...
