    When it's REALLY hot, use gatorade or any sports drink instead of ice water. The stuff contains electrolytes, like electricity (electric + lights), so it helps your battery. 

     

    The fuel tank is like the stomach of the car and there are pipes and veins that take those electrolytes from the stomach to the battery (the car "brain"). 

     

    Don't skimp either. More is better. 

     

    IF the car won't start afterwards, your car is dehydrated. Add more water. 

    It's got electrolytes.  Its what cars crave.

    I love me some Spades.  

    I like James Spader in the right role.  Boston Legal is the right role.

    So you have a strong opinion on a show you've never watched ? lol

    All I said was that show A wasn't far and away greater than the greatest show of all time.  Hardly a strong opinion.

    At the LLWS semi-final U.S.Championship game, Hawaii (Maui) 12 beats Virginia (South Riding) 9, played on the Howard J. Lamade Field in Williamsport, PA. I watched the whole game. Williamsport is my hometown, Maui is my Spiritual Home, Virginia is where I spent most of my life, and it's my mom's birthday. She would have been 96. 

     

    Tomorrow, Virginia plays Louisiana in another semi-final game and if they win, they play Hawaii for the U.S.Championship. 

     

    Other teams on the International side are Japan, which advanced to the International Championship game, Curacao and South Korea play tomorrow. 

     

    August 24 are both Championship games

     

    August 25 is the LLWS Championship Game and the Consolation Game. 

     

    Love this time of year, it's been in my life for many years. The kids are exciting to watch!

    I will be embarassed for the state of Virginia if they allow a bunch of surfer kids to put them to shame.

    Being acclimated to something because you're used it, by virtue of being from an area of the world extremely hot and humid areas of the world, isn't a valid argument.  There are people that live in cold areas that would enjoy a laugh at how we dress in balmy 40 degree weather.  Swap either of those people to the opposite climate and see how tough they seem then.

    I, for one, have been known to traverse the snow-clad winter wonderland in a t-shirt and shorts.

    Pro-tip: Don't explain your choice of attire to your professor by stating you play ice hockey; they may also play said sport and call out your explanation as the BS it is.

    Outside of saving money buying used because somebody's cat was chewing on it, what's the advantage to getting hard copy anymore besides nostalgia?  Do I feel. Ad not being able to sell softcopies could destroy used game stores? Maybe, but anything I want that's used is usually priced like it's new anyway, like PS4 controllers, so I'm not as empathetic as I should be because they arent.

    Having it permanantly in my collection.  The system may fail in the future, but if it does, I can always buy a new one and the still pop in my game.  When the online store with my digital copies close, I won't be able to re-download.  Furthermore, physical copies can be lent out to family and friends.

     

    Also, I am a collector.  I like seeing those games on my shelf knowing they're mine forever.

    Every time I go to GameStop, they f*** up.  Give me a PlayStation game when it's supposed to be an Xbox game, give me an Xbox game when it's supposed to be a PlayStation game, now - dude didn't even put the disc in there.

     

    At least it's the worst game I bought, COD Ghosts.  Wanted to see why it got s*** on so much.  

    Your mistake is going to gamestop.

    tshile's at least got some validity, here, folks.  

     

    No, not about claiming that this proves that PP thought that abortions were the most important thing their organization does, all along.  Yes, it's possible that PP made a value decision, and the "value" they pur on the scale was "a physician's ability to give gis patient the best advice he can, in the patient's particular case, whether a headline-seeking politician wants him to mention the patient's rights or not."  

     

    But it seems indisputable that the other side of the balance they were weighing on was "the health of their existing patients".  

     

    And health care providers are not supposed to walk away from that value for the purpose of making a political statement, even if the statement is a valid one.  

     

    I don't really see refusing to accept politicans mandates on how to practice medicine as a political statement.  No more than anything else where one is forced to respond in some manner or another due an outside political directive.

     

    If I'm eating an ice cream cone (this analogy is about to get weird as it just came off the top of my head) and a law is passed that everyone eating ice cream cones must strip naked, I don't think it is a political statement for me to toss my ice cream in the trash rather than strip naked.  If I just kept eating the ice cream cone and dared them to arrest me, maybe you could consider that a political statement.  If I went to the capitol and smushed my ice cream cone into some stupid congressman's overly product-filled hair, that might also be a political statement.


  8. I got my best suit from a thrift store.  If you know what to look for, you can find some real gems.  My tailor had very positive things to say about the material and condition of the suit.  Sure beats the ones I'd gotten brand new from Men's Wearhouse as a college student, and at practically no cost.  Spent more on tailoring than on the suit itself.

    George Clooney was excellent in Syrians and a perfect fit for O Brother Where Art Thou, but dreadful in other Cohen Bros movies.

    No love for Burn After Reading?
