  1. Alright, who's seen the little known gem "The Zero Effect" with Bill Pullman and Ben Stiller and loves it as I do?
  2. But did you ever notice that we DRIVE on a PARKway and PARK on a DRIVEway???Its f ucking crazy! The English language is nuts.
  3. If I was the devil I would use my devilish powers to avoid getting a ss rammed.
  4. Love this book. It reads like a novel to me - a real page turner, so to speak. Very interesting.Two things though:1) If I was the editor I would have demanded an 75% reduction in exclamation points.2) He has a funny understanding of what the word "optional" means. Just something I noticed. It uses the word in a few somethat bizzare contexts that no native speaker would. Proves its not ghostwritten in any way.
  5. You prefer regular toast to "French" toast?
  6. Next time do something more subtle, like hanging your ball-sack out of your fly.
  7. Thanks for the replys. I get it now. I figured out later that you would have no 7 in base seven just as we have no single digit for 10 in base 10. Its amazing that certain things you've thought of as concrete (such as base 10 counting) are actually completely arbitrary.I really have come to love math as I have gotten older. Math = truth. We humans just hang out arbitray notions on this truth and find ways to work with it.
  8. I’m ignorant about a few math concepts, and I’m having a bit of trouble imaging what a “base 7” counting system would look like. Base 10 refers to the fact that each place in our number system represents a power of ten, correct?So in base 7 each place is a power of 7? What’s the biggest number that can be written with two digits in base 7? At first I thought 77, then I thought 49, then 47, and now I’m not sure.EDIT: My newsest guess for the biggest two digit number is 56... which in base 7 would be written as 77... am I correct?
  9. Fairly interesting thread.I can relate what caused me to totally and completely reject the notion of the Christian version of God.I thought about the Holocaust, and the six million Jews killed. Of course that brings up the old question... why does a loving God allow this to happen? All part of his plan, I guess. Although since he is all powerful you would think he could come up with a plan that would avoid such sufferng. But there is more. Imagine suffering at near starvation for 6 months. Finally shuffled, trembling, into the gas chambers with dozens and dozens of others. And when you finally
  10. I think a nice quiet "F*ck off." muttered under your breath is the way to go.
  11. Also: The average adult male inadvertently consumes a food item intended solely as garnish 1.6 times per year.
  12. The sandwich was actually invented by a guy named the Earl of Sandwich.How crazy is that???!!!??? The only guy who can top that feat is the Earl of Blojobes. He invented soup.
  13. OK he's fallen in recent years, and made a lot of shitty movies but:Caddyshack Fletch Vacation
  14. The only sexual activity I'm involved in lately involves taking one sock off at the end. (Or just proir to the end.)
  15. Has a hidden immunity idol ever been successfully played? (ie to save someone who would have otherwise gone home)I seem to remember one being played when it turned out not to be necessary.James + Ozzie were voted out without using their idols. I'm not a die-hard fan, just cant recall a moment off the top of my head....
  16. I personally think 50 cent blows. Dre can probably turn anyone into a star. (If they look the part and have a great story, that is)Given 100 tries in a studio just about anyone can sound decent. I heard 50 live once and it was awful.
  17. Regarding 4-24 episode...dont read if you haven't seen it I can't believe how stupid the guys are in this season. James and the Erik kid knew what those evil b*tches were up to. The obvious strat is to let Jason in on whats happening, team up as the three guys and vote for one of the girls. Then Jason plays the immunity idol. The five girls (I think) spilt their vote so at least the guys can force tie of some sort. Its their best hope.
  18. I think we're about 5 years away from full on mad max style appocalypse. Get your leathers now.
  19. Follow the queen FTWMax rake every hand Im sure
  20. Show up with bacon on your breath
  21. Ever since I heard about the Hadron Collider and the possibility of it forming a mini-black hole I have been fascinated by the idea. I realize this is extremely improbable --- but it’s interesting to ponder.Suppose some earth-gobbling mini-black hole did form. What would it look like to those of us riding this planet to our doom? Instant death or do we have some time to realize what is happening?I picture driving down the interstate, in the distance the landscape crushing forward into blackness, light poles and over-passes warped and annihilated, front of the car now, China to my immediate rig
  22. Dumb threads get the most replies
