  1. On dating sites.. "Love to laugh" Personally, I hate laughing. Awful when it happens I wish it never did.
  2. I didn't mean the citizens of Chicago or those other cities, I meant the governments. The fact is, cities put a lot of effort and money behind getting the Olympics for whatever reason. Now the one that was chosen over them is showing they can't even host the damned thing.
  3. How pissed are Madrid, Tokyo, and Chicago right now? (the other 3 finalists for the 2016 olympics)
  4. Something happened yesterday that made me rethink this... I was in line at a 7-11 counter and a guy (about 60yrs old) was in front of me with his son trying to work the card swipe machine. They had been working on it for several minutes before I got in line. It took them another couple minutes while I was waiting. The conversation went like this: Dad: "So what do these keys do?" Son: "Enter your pin" Dad: "OK, my pin is 3-5.." Son: "Don't say it out loud Dad!!" Dad: "OK. OK. So 3-5.." Son: "Dad! Hit clear and start over." Dad: "How do I hit clear? I already said some of my code." Son: "No, Dad you have to type the PIN not say it" Dad: "How does it know it's my card?" ...and on like that. So to answer your question, that's the kind of person who falls for that crap.
  5. That's funny, I normally can't stand the fantasy genre but love GoT. I put up with it because the story and characters are so brilliantly constructed. Not into violence or gore either.
  6. Yes. Not funny and kind of a writer's cop out. Then they add the jerky camera for effect and it all comes across as trying way too hard. On top of that, the stuff I have seen is completely absurd in an office setting so I can't relate. BTW, Office Space(movie) and Silicon Valley are two of my favorite comedies. Somehow Mike Judge knows how to make work humor more realistically absurd and it's hilarious.
  7. "Tywin is the beloved son of Tytos Lannister. His father presided over a period of decline for the house, frittering away much of their fortune on poor investments and allowing himself to be mocked at court, creating a perception of weakness. Their vassals House Reyne of Castamere rebelled against Lord Tytos, and Tywin put down the rebellion personally, extinguishing their house and re-establishing the fearsome reputation of House Lannister. His ruthless destruction of House Reyne was immortalized in the song "The Rains of Castamere" and gave darker meaning to the common phrase "A Lannister always pays his debts," which originally referred solely to the Lannisters' vast fortune.[3] Tywin married his cousin Joanna Lannister and their first children were the fraternal twins Cersei and Jaime. She died after giving birth to Tyrion, which Tywin has blamed his son for ever since.[4][5] When Jaime was diagnosed with a learning difficulty by a Maester who predicted that he would never read, Tywin sat with his son for four hours a day until he overcame his problems with transposing letters in his mind"
  8. Yeah not exactly father of the year. But his kids all have major flaws that discredit the family name which is always his #1 concern
  9. The Office ...and any of the other shows that use jerky/quickzoom camerawork as a punchline
  10. DraftKings will have him at 8,000 instead of 11,500
  11. So I'm going back and rewatching the series because I never paid close enough attention. Already into the middle of Season 2. Jaime has changed quite a bit in the last couple of seasons hasn't he? But I don't know if it's the character or more how the actor is playing him. He starts out almost as evil and jerky as Cersei, kingslayer and all that... but now he seems as much a good guy Lannister as Tyrion. Also on the rewatch I'm really liking Tywin more. He's the main reason the Lannisters were kept in high regard. Dude was a no-nonsense badass.
  12. Good term. I'd call myself a low information viewer. I've seen every episode but half the time I am either drunk or doing stuff around the house when it's on. I need to go back to S01E01 before next season an rewatch, paying full attention to all characters this time.
  13. Final episode a bit of a soft landing. So much so that I decided to check whether Season 4 has been approved by HBO. It has. Really felt they could have ended the series there if need be.
  14. I've noticed most TV political commentators start nearly every sentence with "Look...." Getting really annoying.
