The BodyGuard - wretched movie, wretched blind date.  She wore mickey mouse boxer shorts, and a mickey mouse tank top.  5 minutes into the movie, she grabbed my hand and refused to let go.  She sang the lyrics to "I will always love you" when they played it during the movie...

Buy these for your grill:  http://www.grillgrate.com/

A) In a foil packet, assemble a mixture of white and red onions, some sort of pale ale, butter, and mustard.  Let that packet on the grill for 20 minutes, foil packet completely closed.

B) Once the surface temperature of the grillgrates are up to 400 degrees, throw on your brats (I'd recommend Queen city hot and spicy, Schmidts Bahama Mama's, or anything from the Bucyrus Ohio Area) and grill until the internal temp is 135 degrees.  The grates give you the perfect infrared cook, with perfect grill marks, and no bonfire brat effect.

Add A to B, and wash down with at least two beers.

That is unfortunate.  You've likely tried Liquid Aminos as a replacement, but if not, it's worth a mention.  Another couple of places to get good seasonings are: pepperpalace.com and flavorgod.com 

Amazingribs.com has a ton of not just grilled seafood recipes, but knowledge of everything grilled or smoked, how to, and on what equipment.

Another similar spin for Grilling Salmon:  lightly dust with Garlic powder, light coating of soy sauce, spray some olive oil, grill 4 minutes a side

Halibut: Grill similarly to the salmon, with a mixture of dill, pepper, himalayan salt, onion powder, melted butter, and lemon juice basted on top.

Fresh fish will always taste better, but the above seasonings help greatly when grilling frozen fish from Costco, Kroger, etc.  Grilled Asparagus is a good compliment.  If you're a potato guy, cube some red potatoes and put them in a foil packet with diced sweet onion and a half stick of butter and garlic pepper for 25 minutes on the grill...

If you like shrimp, it's great in a wok with combinations of red pepper, green pepper, mushrooms, soy sauce...over rice or even as a steak topper.

+1 for the tip here.  Unfortunately, Gap insurance is most typically issued by the car manufacturer, or the bank issuing the loan for the vehicle.  If there is already a loan on the vehicle, check with the loan issuer and see if there is gap insurance built into the loan.

Sandboxie... Create a virtual walled off instance of your os to browse within. If it gets infected, it's isolated from the rest of your computer, and the instance is disposable ie delete it and create a new one

This may sound contrarian, but the engineering tech in a fitbit isn't what it's cracked up to be.  Many of the cool kids wear them, and it gives you a rough Idea of what your sleep patterns, steps, and heart rate are.  However, they aren't terribly accurate.  In essence, it's a glorified 20 dollar pedometer which can be fooled by shaking it for 2 minutes to get your 10000 steps in for the day.  Your money is better spent on other devices.

Chest strap HR monitors like the Wahoo Tickr X are far more accurate for tracking your activity during exercise. 

myfitnesspal is a very good app to track your eating habits.  Losing weight is 85% watching your diet.  Exercise is great for your body, and stress, but you need a good diet of balanced macros to lose the weight.  Then, you need a second diet to live with once you've lost the weight, or it'll all come back.  Good luck to you.

Inject away, and you can thank me later.

Traffic near the stadium on game days is nuts.  Traffic and parking likes to get cute and shut down certain roads, so it funnels more cars to the same routes.  Uber, a cab, or a bus will be your friend, but give yourself plenty of time.  If you decide to drive, parking starts at $15 and the price goes up the closer you get to the stadium, and inside of 2 hours pregame it can be difficult to find a spot.  You'll want to be in your seat 30 minutes prior to kick in order to catch the band's tunnel entrance.

Whilst I won't endorse booing Ohio State, there are an awful lot of people that have fought, and died for your right to say whatever the hell you want.

Samsungs have more color saturation, but due to the vibrance, can look less natural.  Sony's and LG's have more of a natural color replication, but I'd recommend going to best buy and seeing side by side to determine what color replication you prefer.  I'd also recommend examining the finish of the screen i.e. most samsungs are highly reflective, whereas Sony and some LG's have more of a matte finish.  If you have glare in your room, this can be an issue.  Take Tress' advice and get a Roku 3 instead of a tv with hyped smart options.  Roku is (imho) the most ubiquitous device for streaming, it can be updated, and via Plex you can install some Kodi esque streaming channels if you're looking to cut cable.  If you like cable, Roku's can also be used as a time warner cable box instead of paying for a rental p.o.s.  They're 90 bucks max, often cheaper, and have more ability than what you'll get with a smart tv.

Stick with the main brands, and IF you have to buy from Walmart, be mindful of model numbers.  Find the best picture YOU like.  4k, 3d, are all fine and dandy, but that's if you use them.  Crutchfield.com is a wonderful site for reviews, but if you prefer people, check out a Magnolia corner in a Best buy store (there's one in the Tuttle Rd Best buy of Cbus) and they'll help you with any questions you could possibly have.  Good Luck!

Take advantage of your route, and get some weed out courses out of the way at a branch or community college.  Many students take chem and calc at Columbus state to save money and stress.  Whatever your path becomes, best of luck to you!

Burger:  Thurmans is the top dog.  Bernards is second, and the Pint House in Dublin has a tasty third place.

Pizza: Adriaticos if you like the Sicilian style, Mama Mimi's if you like take and bake thin, Enricos if you like small town grease style, and the best chain IMO is Pie n Pints Italian style.

Steak:  Ruths Chris has an awesome butter, salt and pepper ribeye, Hyde park if well seasoned is your thing, The Top if you like a traditional cut, and the Blue Dube if you're hungry for steak and eggs after a game.
