Watto's Junk Yard / Re: What else do you collect?
« on: June 27, 2003, 12:05 AM »
In terms of the other things I collect, I've gotta give props to Toy Biz this year.  They've really improved from their early days of hackneyed Marvel representations.  Just look at some of the Marvel Legends line, and the LOTR figures.  I'd argue that the LOTR Prologue Elf is one of the best basic figures I've ever gotten from any line.  And Sauron is right up there as a Deluxe.

And as for Marvel Legends, can you believe the fan base they've built?  It's incredible!

Is the Clone Trooper Lieutenant bust going to be there, too?

I know there's also the MOTU Keldor that will be at Comic Con and at Wizard World Chicago.

I like disc golf.

I assume that's the same thing as "frisbee golf", right David?  If so, that's pretty fun, though I've only played it a couple times...

As for the real golf, Patty and I haven't touched our clubs in well over a year now, but the house that we just bought is in a neighborhood that has a "homeowner's association" (and corresponding monthly fee), but included in that is a 9 hole golf course throughout the area that we get to play for free anytime we want!  It's just a bunch of par 3's, but it's kept up extremely well and will definitely help fine tune our games to the point where we've got enough confidence to head out into public again to do the real thing!  Can't wait to move in!   8)

Sounds pretty cool!  I have a similar situation.  My dad is retiring, and moving to a community that has a pretty nice course.  I can get something of a deal on greens fees there, and I can stop in at his place for a drink on the course, since right behind his back yard is the 17th tee.  I'm gonna have to visit him a lot.  ;D

Dude, try barking up another tree.  I know far too many people who were directly affected by the events of September 11th.  Including a firefighter who was in the Trade Center when it came down.  Miraculously, he survived.

On the subject of racism, I believe in absolutes.  Meaning don't even assign racist slurs to the most evil of people.  And if you're willing to let the racial slurs fly with conditions, one can only imagine what your regular thought processes are.  I made a judgement call, and I still think it's uncool to use racial slurs.  Deal.

Clone Wars '03-'05 / Re: Clone Trooper 3-Pack

WOOHOO!  I just scored a set of these, along with the Droid Army 3-pack, and Destroyer Droid launcher.  I can't wait to get home and open them.

Still sounds like a racial slur.  Uncool, even when used to describe a terrorist or a tyrant.

I've been trying to relax in my swing.  Thing I'm doing wrong is  gripping the club too hard.  My right hand is killing me today!

I inherited my clubs from my brother-in-law.  He gave me his King Cobra driver, and I even managed to get than "ping!" out of it.  I still have a slice going, so I'm gonna invest in a couple of lessons.  

If I start getting better, I might try buying a used set.  My brother in law got himself a pretty good set of year old, barely used Titleist's for about $300, so if I start investing more in some clubs, I'll do that.

It's a singer-songwriter situation.  Here's our site:  http://www.geocities.com/jeffgaynor/.  We've got some MP3's that you can get to from the site.

I came close to nailing the range attendant more than a few times.  And he was about 20 yards over to my right :(  I did smakc a few nice 150+ yard drives.  Not bad since I haven't picked up a club in almost a year.

I've been listening to rough mixes of my band's upcoming CD.  I'm co-producing the CD, so I've been trying to pinpoint what we can do to polish things.

I'm in the process of learning.  In fact, I was at the driving range yesterday.  And boy, do I need to take a lesson!  That, plus the irons I'm using are just a little short for me.

Sad to say, but most of that info is well known to the people who want to know it already.  Those reports are just illustrating knowledge that's already out there.

You could find out most of the info you cited just by running a google search.  Car thiefs already know what to do.  The smart ones figure things out, while the dumb ones get caught and go to jail.  As for the military's weapons and capabilities...just find a series of books by a company called Jane's.  They have information about the armed forces of most major countries.  Again, not new info.

As for the media reporting on the war...you're way off base.  The media outlets who had reporters embedded with troops had clear guidelines that they had to adhere to.  And they did.  One of the only instances of a violation of the rules of embedment was a report by Geraldo Rivera.  He actually gave out his unit's position, which is a clear violation of the rules.  He was then sent back to Kuwait from his unit, and now Fox reporter was allowed to take his place.
