  1. Hillary Clinton was heavily involved in starting the civil war in Syria? Do you really believe that? http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2015/10/syrian-civil-war-guide-isis/410746/
  2. His reaction to the virgin disclosure was bizarre. It was like someone hit him in the head with a hammer. loved thatAnd I believe 100% of the reason is that he couldn't wait to pull off the trifecta. No schtick, I think it took him a minute to process that he wasn't going to get to nail her. I thought his reaction to Becca's virgin announcement was about the same as his reaction to Jade's computer pics -- caught completely flatfooted. And he does not seem to have picked up on the fact that the Producers know all this stuff in advance and are setting him up for these little surprise bombshells.
  3. So I am reading on the innernets today that Jade went to the Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in addition to starting her own cosmetics company and hanging around with Hollywood starlet girlfriends. Lots of nice pics on her facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/jadeelizabethroper Sounds like she would have had a lot of interesting things to talk about if the producers ever let the people talk about their outside lives.
  4. I know you only asked for one, but here's the Dum Dum Girls with "Bedroom Eyes" Chrissie Hynde meets the GoGos.
  5. New alt-country band Honey Honey -- heard them first on an episode of Vegas. "Angel of Death" in which the devil passes out pictures of people to send to the great party beyond, then passes out pictures of the band members to each other. Same song performed live on an LA rooftop.
  6. Oh, my. Interesting, but then there's the Who's version: And their version of Young Man Blues from the same show is my all time fave. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJCXpFy0E5s
  7. Jameson and Ginger Ale Good lord. Polluting a fine Irish whiskey? Animals!
  8. Kind of like married sex, only in that case there would have been no beej.I wonder if somewhere out there on the innernets, the gal has posted her version of what went down. It's probably unflattering to our boy.
  9. In our next episode, we discover the ex girlfriend works at the massage parlor.
  10. Are they going to do Boys v Girls the rest of the way? I thought this was a one or two week thing.They keep monkeying with the rules but I think the purpose this time is to give the judges a veto/save, in effect, every week. Anyone truly good with potential to win it all will likely be saved by the judges simply by picking the other low-finisher to go home. What I thought was interesting is that if you look at the top half and the bottom half per America's vote this week, the voters got it right. Fast forward six weeks and the people sitting in chairs screen left should be the ones left.
  11. My girl likened the Ben/Courtney thing to Ben regressing back to his high school days when he would never have a shot at a chick like her, so he's willing to grasp at anything to let her back in. Even after she tells him, "I'm losing that spark, etc." (red flag, Ben?), he comes back and says something like, "I really respect her for being honest, etc." She is playing him perfectly. What a chump.I really REALLY now hope that Courtney wins the whole sha-bang-a-bang: 1) She makes the show much more interesting with her craziness, one-liners, and all out "in it to win it" starategies. The rest of the girls are pretty damn boring. 2) This Ben dude is such a freakin' tool, he deserves to get stuck with an evil soul-sucker like her. 3) These other chicks can do much better than this guy.I'm full on the Courtney express, baby! WHOO-WHOO! :trainwreck:This is a point my wife and I were agreeing on last night. The whole talk on the pyramid scene was a clinical exercise in passive-aggressive "I don't know if I can go on unless you commit to me" antics that got the wine guy begging for the chance to go on a home visit date. As they were walking up the last set of steps I half expected her to say "let's skip the view, I've already got what I wanted on this date."
  12. PART IV. CRIMES, PUNISHMENTS AND PROCEEDINGSIN CRIMINAL CASES TITLE I. CRIMES AND PUNISHMENTS CHAPTER 272. CRIMES AGAINST CHASTITY, MORALITY, DECENCY AND GOOD ORDER Chapter 272: Section 53. Penalty for certain offenses Section 53. Common night walkers, common street walkers, both male and female, common railers and brawlers, persons who with offensive and disorderly acts or language accost or annoy persons of the opposite sex, lewd, wanton and lascivious persons in speech or behavior, idle and disorderly persons, disturbers of the peace, keepers of noisy and disorderly houses, and persons guilty of indecent exposure may be punished by imprisonment in a jail or house of correction for not more than six months, or by a fine of not more than two hundred dollars, or by both such fine and imprisonment. This is the Massachusetts code section cited in the police report. I am having a hard time understanding why loudly complaining to the police in your own front yard qualifies for an arrest under this statute. Apparently the officer thought he had enough for probable cause under this statute. The Department subsequently decided, apparently, not to refer the matter for prosecution. Gates was not charged with obstructing an officer for failing to show his ID. He was charged with disturbing the peace based on discussions outside the house after his identity and right to occupy the house were verified. The police report does not indicate suspicion of other burglars still being in the home; it may be valid to speculate whether the officer considered that, but it is not a factor he gives in making the arrest.
  13. I don't see why this has come up so much as it has. I don't think rational people are really saying this cop hates black people. But he made an assumption that was at least partly based on race and a lot of people don't think that's right. The fact is that cops tend to do this kind of thing to blacks more often than whites (and if this guy were a white guy in grungy clothes and a week without a shower or shave a similar thing would have happened IMO.) I don't really see how that point can be argued. If you want to say that blacks have a higher percentage of law breakers, that would be fine and probably correct but I doubt you'll win many friends.Is it really that hard for people to realize we (and the numbers show black cops do this also) have a different reaction to an unkempt black guy fiddling with a door in a nice neighborhood or a young Arab sitting next to us on the airplane or even a white person who you would see at a county fair? What assumption was that, Timmy?Who the hell is timmy? And the assumption was that a grungy looking black guy shouldn't be fiddling with a door in a nice neighborhood.He wasn't grungy-looking. Gates was in a blue blazer. His driver was in a suit.Does not look grungy in the booking photo -- he's wearing a polo style shirt.ETA http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/years...3092gates1.html
  14. There's one here somewhere. Maybe Gr00vus, but I'm not sure.and frankly even then I doubt he would think that the Chargers should have signed him to a mega deal while Rivers was on the roster.It's the bicycle seat guy. To his credit he stuck with the "we should have stuck with Brees" stance early in the year even when Brees was playing poorly. Unlike the typical sharkpool poster that doesn't bring "Chargers shoulda kept Brees!" until week #9. It's funny how the things they should have done change from week to week. I'm sure AJ wishes he could go back and make changes depending on how the wind is blowing that week.I'm calling dibs on "We should have kept Micheal Turner" schtik right nowNot a chance. I've been saying they should pay $5mil for him next season and nobody agrees with me.Isn't Michael Turner an unrestricted free agent next year? Why would he want to take $5m to ride the pine (mostly) behind LT2? He could probably get several times as much on the open market. It only takes one desperate team to set his "fair market value."
