    2012 - 2013 MLB Hot Stove

    just curious if anyone knows hoe this aspect of baseball works: if a team (like the Yankees) make multiple qualifying offers, and they all get rejected, do they then get multiple sandwich picks in the draft? it sounds logical but i wanted to make sure.

    Prometheus (2012)

    did we? didn't one of the many engineer skeletons have a chest burst? also do we have any indication whether the original incidents on LV426 (Jockey with a chest burst right at the space gun) happened before or after this movie?

    Prometheus (2012)

    btw at the beginning of the movie when Prometheus landed on LV 223, was there only one "giant igloo" or were there a string of them? i was almost sure that there was only one. however if you go to apple trailers and watch the clip of them landing, you can see a long line of them...

    Prometheus (2012)

    i don't know if this has been mentioned before, but how about the tired cliche of the space crew waking up from hyper-sleep and one of the members meeting another FOR THE FIRST TIME?!?!? really? a trillion dollar expedition with 17 people, and there are some who haven't even met yet? :) even...

    if Harmon thought that a job was more important than a soapbox he wouldn't be in this situation in the first place :P

    Justice League of America...Hopefully Warner will get the idea.

    wow i can't believe so many people think Nolan's Batman would be consistent with a JLA movie. but everyone's entitled to their opinion. i agree with the others who think the Nolan Gotham universe is just too realistic. i mean, the stuff that takes place in Batman Begins would seem out of...

    answer: "over Christopher Nolan's dead body" question: "with the Avenger's record breaking opening, is there any chance of a Justice League movie?"

    now that it's been excised, it would probably be better for Cap 2 than the blu/DVD supplement section.

    i think that waitress was among the people who were being terrorized by aliens in the scene where Cap gets thrown out the window (and onto the roof of the car) when the alien exploded

    AVENGERS Movie Thread

    movie was very enjoyable. i actually did chuckle in a few scenes, which is surprising since super hero movie humour can pretty difficult to pull off (is anyone looking forward to Spdier-Man's one-liners?) i don't know if i'd say that the actions scenes in this movie were especially good; but...

    2012 Box Office

    i have a bet with a co-worker over which movie would open bigger; i picked Avengers, he picked Hunger Games. this bet was made about 2 weeks before the HG opening, so i initially thought i was pretty safe. then HG fulfulled/surpassed expectations, so i was worried. but it should be close...

    probability question / brain teaser!

    clarification - the question of "what happens if the coin flipper sees the coin" is a twist on the original post, and should be considered seprate of my original scenario / post. i was only trying to illustrate what might have been going on in my brother-in-law's head when i was discussing this...

    probability question / brain teaser!

    do you guys agree with this part? : if the coin flipper sees the coins land and can choose which coin to cover (hide 3rd coin when the other 2 are H+H), THEN the hidden coin is 75% likely to be T, and 25% likely to be H.

    probability question / brain teaser!

    to add, i think that in the current scenario, if the coin flipper sees the coins land and can choose which coin to cover, THEN the hidden coin is 75% likely to be T, and 25% likely to be H. is this correct? if so, i think he was just getting confused with the variable of [randomly covering...

    probability question / brain teaser!

    i agree with all your agruments. this whole thing came about as a tangent to the Monty Hall Problem. for those who don't know, this is the MHP: you're on a game show, there's 3 doors. behind 1 is the Prize, behind the other 2, nothing. -you pick one door. -the game show host, who...

    probability question / brain teaser!

    yeah but i'd rather have a mathematical, explained argument :P it's more convincing that way to people who would believe it's not 50/50

    hey guys, i need some input as i've been going back and forth with my brother-in-law with this all night. it a probabilities question involving three coins. here is the scenario. 1) you have three coins in hand 2) you throw all three in the air 3) the three coins fall to the...

    Drive - quick review

    just watched this and i had a plot question: in the hotel scene, just before the 2 hitters come in, the Driver gets a call or text or something, that might be a "get out of there" message. what's the story behind this? thanks btw loved the movie.

    Transformers 3

    i may be missing something, but for the last 30min+, the most important thing the autobots had to do was shoot down a very exposed, very visible electrical spire/cylinder at the corner of a rooftop. it would have taken 5 seconds. and it wasn't even far away. even in the scene where Bumblebee...
