    NFL 2012 Off Season Discussion Thread

    Scott, the referee (white hat) is in charge of the officiating of the game, including interpretation of rules, and therefore should be the one taking the responsibility of upholding/overturning calls on the field as the leader of the officiating crew.

    Anyone else see the shuttle launch this morning?

    My wife's laptop of 6 years no longer powers up, so she's looking to replace it. She likes the size of a netbook, and for her uses, there won't be performance issues or screen-size issues.

    Monte Carlo Hotel in Vegas on fire

    I was flipping channels and saw on CNN that the Monte Carlo hotel in Las Vegas is on fire. Seems to be contained to the top floors, but it looks like it's spreading outward from the starting point. Lots of firy chunks are falling, causing it to spread to some lower floors and parts of the...

    Last night, I had to park on the street because my cousin was visiting when I got home and took my spot in the driveway. This morning, I get a knock on my door. Turns out it's a police officer. Apparently, one of my tires was an inch and a half over the curb and on my neighbors grass. So he...
