    Best way to learn a foreign language quickly in your home?

    The foriegn language teacher at my school likes the pimsluer (sp?) method the best for learning on your own. Lately, I have been trying to teach myself German using "The Everything Learning German Book. While I read the German words I say everything outloud. But still, it is hard for my to...

    What are some good Dreamcast games

    My wife just bought a dreamcast from ebay because she just had to have this southpark game. The playstation version wasn't good enough. Anyway, now that we have it, I would like to know what the good games are. Any genre will be fine. Thanks Stefan

    The Village (2004)

    Yes, I must have missed the tombstone. I suppose that would have changed my mindset about that twist. Still, it all worked for me. Stefan

    The Village (2004)

    Put me into the group of people who really liked the movie. Sure, there are nit-picks along the way, but you go to a movie to be entertained. If you want reality, someone can come to my house and film me during 2 hours of my everyday life. Actually, I never really got a sense that this movie...

    Anyone have one of those new front loading washer machines?

    I like my front loading Kenmore for the quite washing. But the high speed spin cycle is loud and shakes the whole house. The machine is level and I even had a tech come out. Still shakes. Stefan

    Blazing Saddles SE - Specs

    If you listen to the old commentary, you realize that he is not refering to anything that is happening in the movie. So therefore it is not scene specific. By calling the commentary on the new disk scene specific, it suggests that a new commentary was made. If you don't want to call it false...

    Roommate Just Moved out.

    That's too bad. They just were not raised with responsibility. Like my wife. I'm the clean one. She just never had to clean growing up. Stefan

    State borders....

    As far as MD, it is actually 2 miles at the place you are talking about. But I realize you were just exaggerating for the sake of the point of the post. The northern border of MD is the Mason Dixon line, which was deliniated to settle a property dispute. The southern border (of western MD) is...

    Roommate Just Moved out.

    I had a couple slob roommates over the years. It's like they think that since you live there, they are just there to rent their room. I interviewed potential roomates beforehand and told them that it was an equal commitment. It's not like I own the apartment, I just lived here before you. Make...

    Blazing Saddles SE - Specs

    It's right there on the back cover of the dvd. Anybody who has the original release knows that the "commentary" is just Brooks taking randomly about the movie - with no regard to the action on the screen. I doubt he was actually watching the movie when he did it. So when it has been advertised...

    Blazing Saddles SE - Specs

    Well, I have to say that I am not happy that they retained the original commentary. I got the disc today and was looking forward to the new commentary - but didn't get it. Sounds like false advertising to me. The transfer is great, but the extras - including the commentary is what I was really...

    Device that tracks a dog's location?

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103239/ The first movie that came to mind was Wedlock. The prisoners wore a collar around their neck and if any prisoner got too far from another, the colar explodes. A good movie. Perhaps a GPS device on the dog Stefan

    Buying pinball machines

    My experience owning a pinball machine was good and bad. Mr. Pinball was a big part of my research. But I ended up buying my machine (The getaway II) locally. The person who owns the place where I bought it was helpful for the first 30 days, but after that it was hard to even get an e-mail...

    recording from Dish Network

    recording from Dish Network

    I have recently gone from standard cable (using my TV's cable tuner), to Dish Network (with their standard receiver). I went to record a program and discovered that I was unable to program the channels into the VCR. And I also discovered that I could not record a live program and watch a...

    Does anyone here eat circus peanuts?

    If your circus peanuts are hard, then you got a stale bag. Search for ones that are soft - much better. And yes, I am a closet circus peanut lover (not anymore :))

    Ever since my rp-82 died with less than 1 year of use, I do not buy Panasonic anything anymore. Had panasonic solved the problem acceptably, I would still be a customer.

    DVD Review HTF Review: Monty Python's The Meaning of Life SE + TRANSFER PROBLEM FEEDBACK

    On my Toshiba 3900, this movie looked horrible. For now, I replaced it with a Panasonic s55. No problems at all. I guess it IS player specific.

    DVD player help (Sony)

To make a long story short, my dvd player (rp-82) goes up in less then a year. They want $90 to send me a refurbished...

    My Girlfriend Won A Mini (cooper That Is)

    About 15 or 20 years ago, my parents won a cadilac. Obviously they were very excited. But, when they found out how much taxes they had to pay, the excitement wore off. They couldn't afford the taxes so they had to sell it. Still ended up with a free car - although a cheaper one. I hope...
