I kind of chuckled that the scientists of NASA are now studying some bird **** that was on the shuttle during take-off and made it to orbit.

Both Matt and his wife are/were in the military. I'm fairly certain a military transfer was the reason for the move.

I thought he was out of the Air Force for some sort of medical reason.  I hope that's true...I don't want to claim him as being int he same branch of the military as me.

It's been kind of interesting for me lately because the class I'm currently taking for my Master's Degree is taught by a guy that works at NASA as a project manager for the life support systems on the ISS.  He's been giving us a lot of first-hand experience with the shuttle launch.

No big deal really, my credit card has already been slammed more than Paris Hilton with my daughters wedding and all but still, it would have been nice to have all three come sometime in July  :).

I laughed my ass off at this one...but me and my fiance are paying for our wedding, so I feel your pain.

Seriously ..the light -up holo darth maul?? My local Walmart had ..about 100 or so of those on the floor...they wouldn't sell so they ended up clearancing them out...I laughed because every time I went in the store they were still there..lower in clearance, until one day I went in and they were under a dollar- I never bought it because I thought it was lame

I guess I should've explained that I was living in Fairbanks, Alaska at the time and the nearest Walmart was about 600 miles away.

I wonder if these new RAH figures will be available through Master Replicas.

Hey Rob,

Thanks for posting those web sites...there are three people near me for "minor" unnamed offenses and one with a conviction for sexual assault on a child by one in a person of trust....and great he's a repeat offender!

I noticed the totals also went down by one...then I remembered Ryan's not in school right now!   :P

Politics aside, Dressel's making a couple of good points, as have everyone else in this thread (of course I haven't read EVERY post just yet).

This case against myspace.com is completely frivolous and is another illustration in a rapidly growing trend in this country of people refusing to take responsibility for their actions and blaming everyone and their mother instead of who is truly at fault...in this case, the moron who slept with the 14 year old, the girl for being stupid and the parents for not knowing what their child was doing.

There are tons of frivolous cases like this like the moron who sued McDonald's for spilling hot coffee on herself, a few cases where people sued the tavern they were at because they got a DUI, the lis goes on and on.

Unfortunately, we have judges in this country who like to legislate from the bench, and have even gone to the extreme to cite foreign laws to uphold ridiculous cases instead of doing their job correctly.

PS - Jim, how did you restrain yourself from not punching that guy in the face?



Intelligence mostly, I'm sure.  Consider this: rather than doing what he did, Jim hauls off and punches a convicted felon in the face.  Fight's on.  Chances of Jim KO'ing this punk without training is not good.  Now he's got a 50-50 shot that he's going to get knocked out, leaving his daughter sitting there with no protection against the creep grabbing her and running off.

He handled it perfectly.

I would've killed the guy.  Of course I'm not a parent yet--just an uncle with 13+ years of time in the military.

I saw a recent episode of Attack of the Show where they were discussing Sirius and XM versus local radio and wether or not people would subscribe.  One of the hosts mentioned that the sound quality for satellite radio was not all that great, comparing it to listening to an iPod through a wet sock.  Is the sound quality really poor on satellite radio?

Wow....this is one heck of a shocker.  I didn't think she would pass so soon.  I did not know Shannon outside of these boards and the occaisional chatroom discussion, but she was always fun to talk to and just had a unique view on life.

I will miss her.

I'm just curious if they will put out a non-inclusive version.  I really don't see the point since anyone and there mom can order one in the amount of time this ordering window has been open.
