    LOST season 2 discussion thread......

    very good observations regarding the black/white scenario...I remember vividly the emphasis the writers placed on black/white and Locke...i.e. backgammon, his eyes, and the treasure found in the corpse.

    LOST season 2 discussion thread......

    Did anybody see the white car that drove by far in the distance when Ana and "the other" were sitting on top of the ridge? Talk about a visual flaw the editors missed. Of course I viewed the show on a 50" HDTV DLP Sammy at my friend's house so this may not have been noticable in SD.

    Saw 2

    Thought this movie was awful. The second half of the movie was a direct rip off of "The Shining." If I wanted to see women and children chased by psychos with knifes, I would rent that at Blockbuster. But the semi-creative ending was worth the $7.00

    LOST season 2 discussion thread......

    Does anybody speak Chinese/Korean? I'd love to know what Jin said when running frantically towards Sawyer and Walt's Dad. The only word I heard was "others"

    Mandatory Employee Party...

    Didn't go. Didn't get fired. Nobody mentioned my absence. All is well.

    Mandatory Employee Party...

    Ehh that was really just two seperate points that just happened to follow each other =) But, IMHO this is a perfect example of not having the same values that your work place wants you to have. I want to work. I work hard. I don't go to work to make friends. The corporation's values are not...

    Mandatory Employee Party...

    I wouldn't expect the most encouraging advice about my idealistic life to come from a messageboard dedicated to an upperclass hobby that not many people have the luxury to even think about. When profit is the bottom line, the truth can get twisted in many ways.

    Mandatory Employee Party...

    Moreso than just escape the rat race, I'm looking forward to trying to better society by teaching a Political Science-esque class at a university. Money is not that large of a concern to me. Ever since I heard about Noam Chomsky my life has never quite been the same =)

    Mandatory Employee Party...

    It has about 60 employees. My main beef with not wanting to go is because I feel that this money could be spent in many better ways such as a large donation to a community kitchen or upping some of the employees wages. I certainly don't need a raise hike considering I live with my folks and can...

    Mandatory Employee Party...

    Let's not confuse this with a meeting. People are compensated for their time at a meeting. I am just doing this job part time while I attend my university. I have no plans to be doing this at all the rest of my life. My goal in life is to become a professor at a university and spread the good...

    Mandatory Employee Party...

    Any of ya'll ever come across these? The restaurant that I host at is requiring all of their employees to attend a mandatory party this coming Monday. Are we getting paid for it? No. Do I want to spend a day with some people I don't care for at all? No. I won't be going. Three thousand dollars...

    Starbucks Chantico...wow! Now that's hot cocoa!

    Actually they heat it up that way so they can keep the milk and not have to throw it away before it gets too cold. I am a barista at Starbucks and you can only "technically" serve milk at 140-160 degrees but the baristas will overheat the product so they dont have to throw it away. The regular...

    Starbucks Chantico...wow! Now that's hot cocoa!

    Yea I work at Starbucks and people are surprised this only comes in 6 ounce cups but when they taste it they are pleasantly surprised. If you look on top of the cup it appears to have the consistency of oil---it's thick guys.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 3

    The first episode of Deadwood was included? I've gotta say that I think this season is by far the best out of the ones on DVD currently. Season 3 has at least two laugh out loud moments in each show. "Club Soda and Salt" is one of the funniest things I have seen in a while!!!

    Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season 3

    I was surprised not to see a thread about this on here, so I figured I would make one. I picked this up Tuesday at Circuit City for $27.99 and love it. PQ and AQ are about what one would expect for a television series---solid all around. There is about an hour of extras showing the cast walking...

    Polk speakers

    I can't rave enough about the Polk's I have had since, roughly, 1999. I have a couple of Rt1000's up front along with the CS400 center speaker, balanced out with some polk surrounds in the back----forget the series name. The sub I have is an Infinity sub and it does its jobs well. I am...

    Best places to visit in CO?

    I am wanting to go to CO for Spring Break from college in the first week of March. I've never done any skiing but would love to try it. Never vistited CO but love hiking and all things outdoor related. Keep in mind that it would be me and a buddy of mine going. Thanks for all the input guys!!!

    Need advice on a friend...

    My advice to you would be, if this friendship is very important to you, just call him and say whatever he wants to hear. This isn't being immature---it's not kissing his ass----it's making things work out for the better. The world is a very lonely place if you go around having grudges with...

    Metal Gear Solid 3

    I think this game is just way too hard. I am playing on Normal diffuculty now, and hate having to sneak thru the jungle with no radar. You have to press L1 every other 5 seconds.

    Hi. I recently bought a Samsung DLP 5085 television set. I am very pleased with my purchase. I am looking at purchasing a top-end player and was hoping to acquire some advice from you all here. Currently, I am leaning towards the Sammy based on the website Samsung has set up for it--granted...
