Chris Davis banned 25 games

It's AMAZING how no athlete has ever ACTUALLY taken a performance enhancing drug.  Every single one of them just took Adderall and failed their drug test, regardless of what sport we're talking about.  Never mind that Davis went from an average hitter to a league leader in HR's between 2012 and 2013... he's just got ADHD.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: The Black Series 3.75" - Wave 5

Got this wave last night.  Sergeant Doallyn is why I still love this as a hobby.  Even though getting a never-before-made background character is a rarity these days, it was awesome to open that one up.  The Ree Yees is fantastic too.

I can't see the X-Wing - can someone toss in a red arrow where I'm supposed to look?  It could be anywhere.

Dammit, you beat me to it.

Good thing they put those red arrows in there so we could figure out what part is the Millennium Falcon and which part is just grass.

They need to keep this one when filming is over and put it in a museum somewhere.

"Can" being the operative term, there.  In order for an underage photo to violate federal law, it has to either depict abuse or a "sex act."  A pretty tame shower shot is neither. 


Since when?

I mean, sure, taking pictures of your toddler playing in the tub is one thing, but under age teenagers in the shower?  I'm pretty sure that would usually fit the definition for criminal possession of child pornography.

The news doesn't know what it's talking about.  Either that, or they're sensationalizing.  For the photos to constitute a federal crime they'd need to depict a lot worse than a selfie.

I've read that law enforcement has been pretty actively pursuing and charging teenagers who have been sexting each other for trafficking child pornography.  I'm pretty sure any nude of a minor is a serious offense.

Found one of these today at a Walgreens around the corner from my office.  Assuming that they'll be canceling my other order because as a company, Walgreens doesn't have a clue, I went ahead and picked it up.

Agreed.

Every year we keep hearing about mobile QB's, but until Wilson none of these guys win Super Bowls.  The Super Bowl winners are guys like Brady, Manning, Manning, Flacco, Rodgers, Brees, Roethlisberger, Brad Johnson, Trent Dilfer, Kurt Warner, Brett Favre, John Elway...

Sure, some of those guys can run but they're not going to give you 60 yards a game on the ground.  The Cam Newton's and Michael Vick's of the world don't bring home championships.

Russell Wilson has the benefit of being smart and pretty accurate to go with his mobility.  He also has a suffocating defense backing him up.

and here we go...

No Super Bowl hangover for Seattle apparently...they really took the Packers out behind the woodshed.

It really seemed apparent to me, at least in this game, why a mobile QB like Wilson is the way to go now over a guy like Rodgers. It's just a whole other dimension that facilitates so many creative options within the offense.

Welcome back NFL. Hoping for a good rebound year from my Skins and an even better year for my Fantasy Team.  :)

It's a long season.  I remember when the Bucs tried to defend.  They opened up the season with a 17-0 road ass kicking of the Eagles in their new stadium.  Then were up like 35-10 on the Colts on MNF when Joe Jurevicious' knee collided with Mike Alstott's head and both players were lost for the year.  Then the Colts got a few B.S. calls, won the game, and the season unraveled from there.

No doubt Seattle looks strong, especially at home, but they're a long way from repeating.

I picked 10th, felt good about the draft and then Yahoo said I was going to win every game outside of week 10 when I have 8 players on bye.

So you guys might as well just fork over the trophy now.

Apple's iCloud is notoriously insecure.  If you are putting things in cloud services in general, you should just expect the world will get it.

This isn't apple hate, I have a couple of iPads and an iPhone...I'm just careful how I use them.

I feel the same way here... I'm not looking to blame the victim (way too much of that going on with this whole mess), but if you're taking naked pictures of yourself, it's probably a good idea to disable the photo portion of your iCloud settings.  People need to be smarter about technology in this day and age.  We should all assume that everything we do on our phones can be made public if the right wrong people start looking to make it public.

I let iCloud have my contacts and calendar because I want those synched across my iPad and available at my desktop, but I don't share my photos or music or anything else it offers because I don't want it stored on some corporate server where anyone could potentially get to it, even if no one's ever going to want to see a million pictures of my dogs. 

I heard the FBI is looking for this guy....probably to give him a hearty handshake, a heartfelt "thank you" and to buy him a bunch of beers!

I'm sure that's it!

LEGO / Re: Recent Acquisitions
« on: September 4, 2014, 09:33 PM »
Yeah, there's a limit though... $2000 per year (after discount), so you can buy $4000 worth of Lego at half off per year.  He said he had plenty that he wouldn't use... I'm hoping he can also hook me up with a Slave I for $100 when that comes out.

I'm pretty sure she's been a reanimated corpse for years.
