Uhh, I'm sure at least some of those 'exotic' locales beyond even 9Route and MMan are also bogus.  Why not use something like Google Analytics to see more legitimate cities and countries that people are visiting from?

She certainly used to be, seems she might have physically peaked earlier than most.  I'm sure she's still gorgeous on the inside.

Let's start with: I love this series and a big thank you for that!  But 1970 National Champion in what, dominoes?  B/c the Bucks were #2 in the end of season coaches poll, #5 in the AP and #5 in the UPI.  We all hate it when other schools claim bogus championships, so let's not be hypocrites here, ok?

Here's a pretty interesting and unbiased look at who should really claim various titles:

OSU broke Alabama's spell of invincibility, and perhaps even their reign at the top of the recruiting heap, but I do not believe they broke the program in the way that such a strong phrase would imply.

OK now, to be fair, if someone did that with OSU stuff, you'd be super supportive.  Am I the only one who thinks this guy would be a fun dad?  Dorky? sure, but fun dorky.  Shows signs of great concentration, patience and attention to detail.  Clearly has an excellent board, role-playing and video game collection, and seems to have a sense of humor to boot.  So, here's to you, Bama Ring Head guy.  Sorry not sorry about last January.

I agree with Wargor, I'm not seeing anyone disrespecting the actual servicemen and women who are so vital to our freedom, but rather the decision-makers who send our brothers and sisters to wars of debatable value, as well as the giant defense contractors who buy influence in our government.  

The flag is for some a symbol of "the powers that be" or "the man", and so is sometimes abused as a political statement.  Similar to if the Sons of Liberty burned the British Union Jack in protest back in 1772 or something.

It's wonderful that you spent time watching what your fiancee and son like, but I strongly urge you not to let what strangers say on a message board ruin your enjoyment of Buckeye football.  You can't control what other people write or vote (shhh, don't tell anyone, but helmet stickers don't mean anything in real life), but you CAN control how YOU REACT to silly men (and women) like us.  Hint: water, ducks, back.  Have a great day!

Sage wisdom.  Side'll be a very lucky man indeed if Billy Lowlife day doesn't come long before she hits 17.

I for one think it's good that we have this conversation about the relative danger and benefits of marijuana here, but for those who don't think so, can we all agree then that DJ would have made a mistake by adding what appears to be his opinion (equating selling ounces of marijuana to dying [...dying? really DJ?]) after the reporting the story?

I hope the Bud Light part is artistic license.

Great comment.  Also, if you sit at a desk, your setup can be super important.

Gladiator - decent movie, eye candy, but FAR from great or oscar-worthy

Goonies - all people my age seem to love it, I didn't see it until my 30s, guess I was too old when I finally saw it

Raging Bull - good but not top 20 all-time good

Chinatown - love Nicholson usually, but this was meh for me

American Graffiti

Agree with Blade Runner - very interesting story, movie doesn't do it for me

Toy Story 2 - good but not great.  1 was great.

There Will Be Blood - fantastic performance from DD Lewis, but overall movie notsomuch

Children of Men - cool idea, but...

District 9 - see above

Ratatouille - fun but not as good as I expected

Pan's Labyrinth - very disappointed

Kill Bill 1&2 - good and have their great moments, but far from Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction level for me

Strongly disagree about trying to avoid mortgage debt.  With a mortgage, someone is giving you the opportunity to invest THEIR money, for a small fraction of your own (say 1/5 for a 20% down payment, or even much less if you use the smaller first-time home buyer program).  Let's say your 30-year mortgage is at 4% APR.  Well, you can likely count on more like 8% return from an S&P 500 index fund over the same period, so if you choose to pre-pay your mortgage, you're GIVING UP 4% compounded interest each year for 30 years on that amount.  Every dollar you give up to prepay that mortgage is a dollar that could be invested in your retirement account.  As long as you actually do that with the money :)

Just as you'd be silly not to maximize your company's 401k match, if you're a disciplined saver, in my opinion you'd be silly to pre-pay your mortgage.
