I'd like to play.  I signed up.  If there's not room for me and one of the regulars needs in... I could always bow out.

Oh, and yesterday (July 13), Reuters reported that opening day receipts for F9/11 had broken British box office records for a documentary.  Way to go, Moore.   :D

Um, not quite sure a documentary is totally accurate.  That much selective editing really sort of detracts from the document portion of the word.  Bias is still bias, even if you like it.

Most documentaries are biased to one degree or another.  Any intro level film class that touches on documentary will teach you that.  His film falls well within the realm of documentary - whether you agree with his conclusions or not, there's no disputing that documentary applies.

Good work!

My grandfather died of lung cancer from smoking a pack or two of unfiltered cigarrettes way back when.  That was when my dad was 19.  And my dad smoked for the longest longest time and ended up needing a quintuple bypass last year.  So I'm always happy to hear when someone manages to kick the habit.

Such ignorance is disheartening. :(

I agree, it's amazing that so many people would piss away $10 on a piece of liberal propaganda.  That's 2 OTC Cloud Car Pilot figures right there.

Hey why not, people read Ann Coulte and Sean Hannity's books after all...

A guy I ran into yesterday insists that the sale doesn't actually start until today, even though I've now bought 10 games for fifty bucks - he also said that for some reason if you could find a game on the list, they rang up at that price, but most stores pulled their stock to save until today.

So I'm going to go look into it this morning.

I went to one today and they had a bin full of stuff...I picked up Agent Under Fire for 5$ - at that price, what the hell...

Yes, everyone should see this objective, informative, educational tool.

Glad to see you're finally on board.  And you'll be happy to know that it's made nearly 70 million dollars in two weeks.

so somewhere in the neighborhood of 8 to 10 million people have done just that - so far.

Haha - heard about it on Tuesday, but didn't get to see it until now...

Love the misfits and all, but what a tool.

So they've got a huge sale of games for $4.99, xbox, ps2, and gamecube.  I started a similar thread at the scum, but wanted to make sure people over here who might not have known or seen it found out.  The original thread is here:

This week, for $4.99 each I managed to pick up:

Morrowind Game of the Year Edition
Clone Wars
Metal Gear Solid 2
Secret Weapons over Normandy

Game Cube:
Mario Party 4
Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance
Resident Evil 2
Mega Man Network Transmission

Ironically, I almost paid like $40 for a used copy of RE2 two weeks ago - but now managed to get it new, plus hald a dozen other games for the same price.

Anyways - the pickings might be slim at this point as far as what titles are left, but they had a TON of games for 5$ in a big bin when I went tonight - and best buy seems willing to price match.

I just wanted to make sure everyone knew before it was too late - I think it ends Saturday night.

This is the original list that was sent to me - but it does not come close to including everything that is on clearance/sale - at least two of the games I got for 5$ weren't on it:

Playstation 2
Ape Escape 2
Armored Core 2
Black & Bruised
Bloody Roar 4
The Bouncer
Britney's Dance Beat
Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter
Capcom Vs SNK 2
Clock Tower 3
Devil May Cry 2
Dino Stalker
Disaster Report
Disgaea: Hour of Darkness
Driving Emotion Type-S
Dynasty Tactics
Dynasty Warriors 4
ESPN Winter X Games Snowboarding
Freaky Flyers
Freestyle Metal X
Guilty Gear X
Haunted Mansion
Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb
Jungle Book: Rhythm N'Groove

Sega Soccer Slam

Game Boy Advance

Oh, and if by chance anyone comes across Resident Evil Dead Aim for PS2 or Toe Jam and Earl III for Xbox and could pick me up one, I'd be grateful.

Wow, those look cool altogether like that!  Nice work Scott.

This just infuriates me even more that they didn't start up with the OTC design at the beginning of this entirely OT focused year, but at least they're recarding a lot of the early 2004'ers it looks like...   8)

Yeah, I know not everyone digs 'em, but I sure as hell do!   ;)

Best packaging ever.  Too bad I'll only be buying 7 of them though...  Damn shame.

Quoting a move that partially makes me sick to my stomach, I'm now seriously contemplating buying these figures that I already have, because the packaging is everything I've ever wanted from Hasbro style-wise for the whole 9 years.

I sure hope that after this run of re-packs there will be some fresh sculpts on this cardback.

None of them...Titan does have an atmosphere though which is mostly Nitrogen (like ours is)

Maybe a few hundred years from now after ruining Mars humans might be able to try terraforming Titan by initiating reactions to make Oxygen

Kinda like Total Recall????

I can see it now, Arnold Schwartzeneggar saying:  "Getcha ass to Titan."

Very cool.  Can't wait for the pictures to start coming in.

One question - and the answer might be in those articles, but since I don't have time to read them all tonight I'll ask anyway.

Why does it have to thread a gap in the rings to settle into orbit?  Seems there's a whole lot of Saturn that doesn't have rings around it that they could approach from.

Or does it have something to do with gravity?  Or, did they just want to take pictures from close to the rings?

While the teacher is hot no doubt, I can't stand up and cheer the kid on.

One of my favorite high school teachers was accused of having an inapprorpiate relationship with a student about a year after I graduated and left for college.

It must have been true because he killed himself over it.  It was not a fun time - particularly for his son, who went to school with us and who we all knew.
