The NCAA National Championship is actually about football. People don't spend 50% of the time discussing and analyzing the halftime show and the commercials.
Uh huh. I saw commercials when I watched the BCS game this year. And wasn't there a halftime show, I can't remember.

Sure, the National Championship is hyped up and promoted for weeks leading up to it, but it's still about the actual game.
And the Super Bowl isn't?

I didn't know corporations got a trophy for best SB commercial.

Also, they utilize the power for the football game rather than blowing the fuses on a halftime pole dance.
Because power outages never happen when hosting a game.

rather than blowing the fuses on a halftime pole dance.
Look at this post. Just look at it.

Some people like Jerry Springer, Oprah, professional wrastlin', and the Super Bowl. I can't argue with them. If that's what they like, that's what they like. I just have different tastes. For example, with all the legendary musicians that hail from New Orleans, I would have liked to have seen a local artist perform. But screw culture, tradition, and taste, this is the Super Bowl. Maybe next year they should have a gay pride parade at halftime. (Dang, I just gave Babylon another idea.)

Hey did you know the BCS game was sponsored by Pfizer, who manufactures Viagara and helps in research for newer forms of birth control, and probably abortion?

ok not really, but I thought it was funny.

anyone ever think that Ewok's are just the original form of the Wookies?  Kind of like the theory of relativity..but Star Wars...?
It is also possible that the Wookies came first, and the Ewoks are just Wookies that evolved to fit their new surrondings. Or share a same parent species, just evolved differently.

The original intent was to make the Wookies fill that role in RotJ, but Lucas changed the script, since having Chewbacca come from such a primitive people would be at odds with his role working a spaceship. And then Lucas decided that since he was changing things around, he might as well milk an opportunity to sell stuffed animals.

Wookies would have been hella coola.  

Let him who replaces wookies with troglodyte teddy bears be anathema.

One of those truly beautiful pieces of French poetry:

Souvent femme varie,
bien fol est qui s'y fie!

Une femme souvent
n'est qu'une plume au vent!



In order to keep the mods happy, my own (bad) translation:

Oft women are fickle
a fool is he who trusts her.

Oft a woman
is nothing but a leave in the wind

Jesus is truly the Messiah who wants us to be happy and loves us because He gave us the permission to eat bacon.

Which ones?

I'm looking for a good running shoe.
A 1540. My feet are pretty broad and super-flat, so that may or may not be what would be best for you.

They sale them in pairs, because otherwise it'll cause an imbalance, and besides they can make more money that way!

I'm so happy that I don't have driving lessons right now. I can't remember much of last night and it only was 4 or 5 hours ago.

You realise some chick could be after your superior genetics and making you her baby-daddy, right? Be careful!

I already disliked furries, but a used diaper-wearing one?

I was laughing really hard thinking it was complete BS, but then I did some more research and this dude is 100% legit.

Then I got so depressed.

I love my job.  Who wouldn't love putting in 82.5 hours the first week of the month, then get called in on Sunday to work some more knowing you have another long week ahead of you, all resulting from poor planning and indecision on the part of your supervisors?  This following 290+ hours last month. Why would anyone want to retire?  Who needs overtime instead of salary?

Apparently, roller skating is not like riding a bicycle. You do forget how. What happened? I used to be a good roller skater. I was fast as lightning. I couldn’t skate backwards or do any tricks, but man I could fly around the rink. Of course the last time I skated was about 1980. Thought I’d just pick right back up where I left off. That didn’t happen. But the good news is that I didn’t break anything. And even though I fell a lot, I sure had a blast with the children. What a fun night!

I avoided the roller skating rink in my youth because I was so awful at it.

I don't dare try ice skating either.

  • I don't want to work 82 hours a week.
  • I don't have avocados in my apartment at the moment.
  • I do not wear diapers.

What is it that you do?

And you are not on a salary either?

That one moment where you are down 0-8 (rounds) in counter strike, only to comeback and win it 16-14.

Best feeling...EVER.
