Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Tsunami death toll tops 116,000

There isn't even anything that can be said - I can't believe any of this is real.

The estimated death toll has risen to over 125,000 - just in the time that this thread has been around, 9,000 more confirmed dead. 

How horrible.

Well, my 'they come in 3's - who's next' comment shouldn't be necessary.  I forgot that Reggie White died a few days ago - theoretically, that should be all until the next wave.

That explains why it didn't come up in the Google search.

Jerry Orbach - being added now.

That's two that I actually enjoyed in 2 days - crappy.

The  Jerry Auerbach  thread watch is on.

RIP Jerry Auerbach.

They say they go in 3's - expect one more to die very shortly - I'm still guessing Abe Vigoda.

This has been a little more anti-climactic than I was hoping it would be...

Thanks everyone.  This was the first year I played FF so maybe it can just all be chalked up to beginners luck.   So does this mean next year I have to name my team Defending Champs?

Hey now, my girlfriend is a packer fan...

Anyways, I've gone ahead and added my own death notice to Rebelscum - and the list.

RIP Susan Sontag.

I didn't know about this endeavour until about March, so I didn't participate - although I do have all my receipts from about Feb on for tax purposes - so I could do a partial tally.  Either way, I intend to get in on this starting next week.

What...this isn't the same exact guy?   :-\

PS RIP Reggie :'(

This could be the bridge that brings Packers fans and Vikings fans together.

Well, now that MNF has come and gone, it's official.

1)  The Zods
2)  Nicklab's Nuckleheads
3)  Dressel's Rebellion

I ended up winning 11 straight games - Domanick Davis getting over his injury, combined with realizing Jerome Bettis would be contributing all year and was worth starting got the ball rolling.  Whoo hoo.

Yeah, there was more anticipation when DBB didn't know about it.

Maybe if DBB isn't the one to let us know that he started a thread from now on - we'll find it and that might bring back a little bit of the suprise.

For a long time I was under the impression that nation-wide distribution was pretty much even - especially in metropolitan areas.

Then I saw the counter example to end that thinking...  My buddy has been looking for the Target Slave Leia with Plastic Cup for about 3 months now.  Everywhere we go we look for it.  All they ever have is Anakin and X-wing Luke.

Then, I go back to Clearwater - and literally go into ONE store to grab a gift for my nephew...  They've got over 30 of them.

Over 30!  Just collecting dust.

Went and picked up those ones I stashed a few weeks ago.  There were 6 of them - at 7 Bucks each - minus the giftcard I had = 6 Stormies, 29 dollars and change.

I'm at 35 now.

I bought a new computer, my family mostly just gave me money to help pitch in.

The girlfriend's parents got us (among other things) two Dali woodblock illustrations from his Divine Comedy, complete with all their authentication documents - very very cool.

And the girlfriend got me the UCS lego Y-wing.
