  1. My Halloween costume: I go naked on a pair of roller skates and go as a "pull-toy"! Last year it was cold, but I stuck it out!

      The cold must have made you difficult to pull....

  2. I am...very sorry to inform you, the sentence for your moral crimes has been handed down.  You will be drawn into a void of complete insanity by being forced to play Snax'N Jackson for 18 hours each day, Clockwork Orange style.

      Or watch Action Jackson 18 hours a day, MST3000 style.

  4. So, "brand new" cannot only include open box on eBay, but "still brand new, used a handful of times. "

      But, by its definition, it’s like saying someone whose only had sex a couple of times is still a virgin. At least he defined his redefining so we still know what he means. Just don’t like to see the brand new category on sites like this clogged up with opens box and slightly used - those should go in used: like new

  5. Why we still need DVDs/Blu-Rays: Thought I would check out Northern Exposure from 30 years ago. Turns out no one streams it because NBC doesn't want to pay the music royalties for songs used in the show. Yet, you can still buy new DVDs or BluRays. Go figure.

      @thanatos A lot of shows have that, even in streaming. With others, they don't bother, for whatever reason.

  6. Some banner advertisements are more surprising than others, like the one I just saw advertising about immigration to Canada.

      The UK want their people to immigrate to Canada?

  7. Some asshole scammer message has been repeatedly calling my cell phone. I don't know why and I don't know how to make it stop. Five times in the last half hour so far.

      @DragonGrafx-16 Always a different city and number. I told one of these people in live conversation that I was on a do not call list and they cursed me out.

  8. Should I get the C64 Mini off Amazon or wait for the full size one coming "soon" to the USA.

    1. Swami

      Swami

      I bought the NTSC THEC64 Maxi off Amazon in the US about 6 months ago. I think they are sold out, although there may be another batch. Some poor guy paid $350 for a used one a week before the new batch was on sale on Amazon.

  11. Just watch Aliens after watching Alien. 3 times the budget, one third the acting.

     

    1. Swami

      Swami

      @GoldLeader Concept was good and big scale for Aliens, I agree. Although, I thought their was surprisingly little close-up action of the actual aliens until the very end. I have to admit I think Cameron's weakest point is directing acting, although he is good at the big action and sets. Weaver and the Bishop Android (Henricksen) did very well, although Henricksen seemed under-utilized. Cameron was the writer and director of Aliens, but not the original. I watched the Special Edition, so its possible I also saw a lot of extra fluff that was cut out of the Theatrical version. Overall, Cameron had big shoes to fill.

      This would be when Chrysler bought Lamborghini from some Swiss brothers c.1987. They made the first Lamborghini, the Diablo, with power steering. Later models had AWD. The Countach never had power-steering or AWD to minimize weight.

      @Cebus Capucinis Even in Minnesota our summer AC bill is more than our winter heating bill, LOL. I'm guessing you don't often get 90's in the summer in the Pacific NW. I am curious why Tucson and Phoenix didn't end up closer to the Gulf of California. Something to do with Gold Rush travel path of least resistance I would think.

      That's me. I've got new stuff sitting in my living room with no where to put it. I should get a storage locker, but what a PITA that would be.

      He said he thought it was a rubber bat someone threw onstage, but I think the truth is that he was to high to know what he was doing. Obviously, he couldn't smell it.
