    Heroes season 1 thread

    Now, see, I thought for sure that it would turn out that Papa Nakamura would have time-related powers as well, or would at least tell Hiro to stop time except for the two of them, so they could spend a few months in sword training, while the rest of the world passed a few seconds. Of course...

    Survivor: Fiji

    Pseudo-Zen Mumbo Jumbo: Survivor isn't a game that you win; Survivor is a game that you manage not to lose.

    Guitar Hero 2 - XBOX 360 Review - Opinions

    Actually, on first play-through on hard, got five stars on first try for all of the first tier, and the first three songs on the second tier. Then, I hit 'Woman.' Crikies.

    Guitar Hero 2 - XBOX 360 Review - Opinions

    Finished all songs on Medium with 5 stars last night. Next goal: five stars on all songs on hard.

    Guitar Hero 2 - XBOX 360 Review - Opinions

    I sold my PS2 Guitar Hero 1 and 2 to a buddy so I could pick up the 360 version. It's a damn good port; the graphics are way better, the animation seems a bit smoother. The guitar seems a bit tighter, too, on the hits. I also prefer the neck design. The new songs are pretty rockin' and I...

    Selling Tv to friend, suggestions?

    Just tell him the truth; you need the money up front so you can buy the new TV; no money, you can't buy the TV, and therefore you can't sell him your old one. I believe the old adage, however, that never loan money to a friend unless you can live with never seeing it again, applies.

    Jericho ongoing thread

    I'd just assumed that he'd noticed flashing from the scope. I was more put out by the fact that Hawkins was using a laptop in such bright sunshine....

    Bearing in mind that the townspeople called the Mayor on that very issue too....

    Dagnabit, I missed it. Hopefully it'll be re-aired.

    running in-wall speaker cable to two wall plates?

    I have a section of my basement all nice and studded, destined to be a home theater. Before we put in the drywall, of course, I want to run the cables; speaker, cat 5, and so on. Now, the trick is, in the short term, I'm going to want my receiver in one spot, and later on, when I get a...

    Bear in mind that, when referring to werecreatures, 'lycan' is a short form of 'lycanthrope,' much like 'vamp' and 'vampire.' It's not an Underworld-specific term.

    Survivor Panama Exile Island season 12 (merged)

    Andres, Yup. They'll vote off number 4 on Thursday, then on Sunday will be the two hour finale show with one hour reunion.

    Any Fun Autograph stories?

    Had George R. R. Martin sign one of my Wild Cards books at a signing at the World's Biggest in Toronto a few months back; he was promoting A Feast For Crows. I should have checked while I was there, to ask, as I can't figure out what he actually wrote.

    What to do with an Ebay bidder

    Everybody starts with zero feedback. Use common sense and everything will be fine.

    Boston Legal season 2 ongoing thread

    In favour of the teacher; the parents can call once per three weeks, and one parent/teacher meeting per term.

    Stomach problems

    Sounds to me like a gall bladder blockage. I say this, becuase I just had one. Do you notice fatty foods cause you more problems?

    Ringtones: Where do you all get them?

    I make my own, using a program called 'psmplay' to convert (and tweak) midi files, then transfer them to my phone via a little itty bitty WAP server I ginned up.

    Kung Fu is done...Now where's Kung Fu:The Legend Continues...

    The grandson of Kwai Chang Caine walks out of the past. "But I want to fight." "Yes...so did your great grandfather, when he was your age." Damn, I loved that show. It was also fun identifying all of the Toronto landmarks. :-)

    My take on the hatch: The ladder wasn't broken; it was removed. They've just opened the door to a prison of some sort....

    Stupid things people do.....

    A buh? The driver with the right foot on the pedals, and the left foot propped up out the window? Now I can't get the HIDEOUS CRUNCHING and CRACKING sounds that would result from a collison (or, gods help them, an air bag deployment) out of my head!

    Survivor Palau: Season 10

    When they read the votes, I said to the wife that I bet Jenn voted for Caryn. And I was right. Now, the entire jury thinks that Katie is absolutey untrustworthy.

    Police hand-cuff 5 year old girl at school

    Drew, What ages are your children? Out of curiosity. Mine are 7, 5, and 3. And if any one of them was acting like that, I'd have no problems with the cuffs going on. Action -> consequence, done. OF COURSE she started behaving when the authority figures showed up! Standard tactic for a...

    So, what is the difference between creepy and scary?

    One is mental, one is physical.

    American Idol Season 4

    I thought, though, I saw what looked suspicously like a knuckle-sandwich shaped bruce/lump thingy, on Anthony's cheek bone, covered with stage makeup.

    Battlestar Galactica - SciFi US broadcast thread

    Just a pair of points: It's HARD to kill yourself by shooting yourself in the head. There are many documented reports of people screwing it up, even with a shotgun under the chin. Skulls tend to deflect and bounce bullets in interesting ways, due to the way they're shaped, and so on. Not to...

    Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory

    Rented it, played it, and maybe I'm just in a rut, but all I can think is 'Meh. It's Splinter Cell 3.' I mean, it's a nice little evolutionary sequal, but....meh. Of course, I'm only playing the single player (no broadband) so maybe I'm missing out on the whole point.

    American Idol Season 4

    I've always thought of Jessica and Carrie as interchangable and indistinguishable; all I know is that one of them will wear their hair flat, and one will wear it kind of wavy.
