  1. Yeah, my wife bought the Wii fitness thing, and it got used about 3 times. Now it sits under our coffee table collecting dust. It doesn't sound like you are super interested in owning a Wii, so I would suggest borrowing one from someone to let your wife try it out and see if she is relly going to use it.
  2. post the info, and maybe someone can tell you what it means.
  3. Link? For the lazy ones, like me
  4. Hmmm, I'll still take Print Screen and paste into Photoshop. A lot more options there, I think. Plus it is cheaper for me, and no, I'm not talking about warez, I have a fully legal copy, bought and paid for. Cost me $10.
  5. I would recommend he gets himself tested for STD's as well. She may SAY it only happened once . . .
  6. It doesn't sound like he had overdraft protection. I have it at Fifth Third and if I should happen to overdraft, they will auto-transfer from savings to cover the amount. Of course they charge a $6 fee for doing so . . . The thing that really annoys me is that I specifically requested that Fifth Third should decline any transactions made if there wasn't sufficient funds in my checking and they absolutely refused to do that, citing it as a conveinience that they would cover an overdraft and charge me a massive fee for doing so. So I opted for the protection.
  7. Lol, you have not yet begun to learn the meaning of 'much needed sleep" Congratulations! There is nothing quite as meaningful to accomplish in this world as creating a life.
  8. Ever heard of OSHA? I have belonged to a union, I used to work at UPS and I started as a union worker, and later moved to management, so I saw both sides of it there. In my opinion, UAW should go. I don't think unions have a place in jobs like factory work, grocery stores, UPS, etc. A long time ago, they were a worthwhile endeavor, but as someone else said, we now have a lot of government regulation like OSHA to help keep workers safe and healthy. That being said, there are still some places where unions do some good. Take for instance the electrical union, or painters union. These are organizations that individual workers can belong to to get better health benefits, access to more jobs, help finding jobs, training, etc. Very helpful, especially to someone who may be just starting out.
  9. I was just being sarcastic since all I ever hear on the news here is how so many people are down and out and businesses everywhere are struggling.
  10. But I thought the economy was a wreck?!? How are these people able to be out spending money? I thought no one had any anymore . . .
  11. I really like Silent Debuggers and Cadash. Splatterhouse is great for a quick game, and I have logged many hours playing Alien Crush. Sinistron is sweet as well. My all-time favorite TG16 game is Ninja Spirit. Awesome game with a great soundtrack.
  12. Hear, hear. That's my main issue, keep the government small and fiscally responsible. I'll vote for whatever party or whatever candidate is going to do that.
  13. Given that about 1/2 of the group is girls, I'd say you are correct
  14. I think that is the point. He looks like he's in costume lik Dave Chappell when he was playing a crack addict.
  15. I'm not totally pleased with it, I couldn't ge the drips to look right IMO, but here's one with the bloody fan:
  16. That's a good idea. If I have some time later, I'll see what I can do.
  17. Here's a couple more for fun: with your username: With OCC:
  18. i did it in Photoshop using some custom brushes. Got a few splatter brushes off the internet and put 2 or 3 together to make the finished product.
  19. How about this? You didn't say a size, so I just did my own desktop. That was a quickie I made in about a minute. I can make the splatter cover more area if you like. I've never seen Dexter, so I don't really know what exactly you are shooting for.
  20. I don't subscribe to any religion really, but I did grow up in a heavily religious household and so I do understand that point of view. And I suppose it rubbed off on me somewhat as well, because i don't like the idea of social programs. It goes against my desire for the government to stay out of my life and yours. I have no problem with helping people, I just don't want the government forcing my hand by taking money from me and doing with it what they please. If I choose to assist someone in any way be it financial, food, labor, etc., I want it to be to whomever I choose in whatever manner I choose. Here's an explanation of the christian point of view that may help you understand why they think that way. The bible does indeed advocate helping out those less fortunate than you. However, from a christian perspective, god knows your intentions, he sees your heart so to speak, and helping out someone by being forced to does not truly come from having a good spirit. So it doesn't 'count' I guess. I don't know, I guess it harder to describe than I thought. It's been awhile since I thought abot it. Religion doesn't really have a place in my life. Plus there is the whole thing about your not really helping someone by enabling them. For example, the low-life's who suck on the welfare teat all their lives. That's not helping them. Sometimes the better lesson is learned by hard work rather than a handout. EDIT: Woohoo! 500 posts
  21. Those are several good 'character' reasons to vote for Obama, and certainly reasons that I can follow your logic and even agree with for the most part. (The only reason I may not agree fully is that I lack a full understanding of some aspects of the reasons and thus do not feel informed enough to make a judgement) What are the issues that Obama supports that you agree with enough to support him as a candidate? I remember you used to be very supportive of a bipartisan government, i.e. one party in the White House, another in the Senate and House of Representatives, but something made you change your mind. I'd be interested to know what.
  22. Next time please write more carefully before hitting post You started a new paragraph which indicates a change in subject. If it was a continuation of your first sentence, you shouldn't have started a new paragraph. I read it the same as Clay, and I'm sure we weren't the only ones who read it that way.
  23. All lot of places will automatically charge a gratuity for parties of 8-ish or more(exact number can vary from place to place). Did you have a large party? That could b where that was coming from. If not, was the tip suggestion something printed on the receipt, or something the server wrote on the receipt themselves? If it was the former, some places do this as well to help people who don't like math or something, but it is usually in the form of 10% is $x.xx, 15% is $x.xx, 20% is $x.xx, not "Please pay X amount". Basically, if it was printed onto the receipt, I wouldn't hold it against the server and tip them according to the service provided. If it was something the server themselves hand wrote on the receipt, I would be inclined to tip less simply because they were so bold as to tell me what I should tip them.
