I think it's criminal that we were unable to return to the moon (or go further into space) in Neil Armstrong's lifetime.

I juzst finished a book entitled "Five Equations that Changed the World: The Power and Poetry of Mathematics" delved into how some of the most famous natural phlosophers (Newton, Bernoulli, Einstein, Faraday and Clausius) casme up with their revolutionary equations.

It read more like a history book than a mathematics text, and it was very insightful.

I'd like to get several in different styles, just to make a more ragtag squad.

I have a degree in Applied Mathematics anc can't figure out how they score gymnastics!  Remember not so long ago when the best someone could do was a 10...hence the phrase a perfect 10?  Now 13 and change is a bad score!  WTF? 

The announcers are even better...some dude will fall flat on their face/ass and the announcer will talk about how bad it is then when they event is done, turn around and say how that was that person's best performance!  Then why the hell is that person on the Olympic team?!

BTW Nick, I understand how timezones work and that most of the NBC cable networks are showing events all day.  However, they are not showing the more popular events (swimming, gymnastics, etc) live.  Back in the 80's and 90's this wasn't so bad, but in the era of the internet, NBC needs to adapt.  Why not have these events online?  Or show them live then have a recap during primetime when there are no events going on?  NBC sports coverage is just bad to begin with...look at how poorly they covered the Superbowl this past year...they rushed and cut off most of the post game interviews so they could rush to air a show no one wanted to watch anyway.

Who's watching what?

I'll watch the swim events when I can as well as track & field.  Hard to do without spoilers because NBC's coverage is horrendous!

They didn't show any previews before TDKR in IMAX where I saw it, thanks for posting.

At first I thought it was a preview for deadliest catch!

I thought it was good overall.  It had a lot of parallels with The Dark Knight Returns it kind of made the ending make sense.  They left it open for more, but I hope that this is it for this incarnation of Batman.


I think they did set up the batwing being able to get the bomb far enough away...they did have it outrunning missiles afterall.

I'll be surprised if AOTC 3D is released and there's not a Republic gunship reissue at least.

I think we are more likely to see a re-release of the AT-TE.  That was very popular.

Day two of the walking marathon on AMC starts at 11:30 this morning. I really enjoyed seeing all of season 1 since I hadn't really watched it all the way through before.

Thanks for the tip on this.  I tried to get my TiVo hooked up in time to record it, but I think I need a cable card for DirecTV.  Argh.  If anyone sees any other WD marathons on the horizon, please let me know.  Next time I will be prepared!

Do you have Netflix streaming or Amazon's online service?  I think they both have Walking Dead available.

I'm really just sticking to the couple of sets I had as a kid, and I really am getting them for my kid.  I think it would be cool forhim to have some of the nostalgic stuff from when I was young.

Well, I've taken the plunge in getting a couple of these sets for Colin to play with.  I got a good deal on the wilderness adventure set in great condition and even had the original box!

I will be on the hunt for the Northwoods Trailblazer set (with the yellow jeep) and then I will call it quits until Colin is more interested.

Are you sure that's not just the number of stormtroopers you have?   ;D

Amazing on how many figures have been issued in 17 years!

I saw it in IMAX 3D on Friday and thought it was good.  They definitely left a lot open, so there might be another one down the road.
