Hove, make sure you check out the screen first.  It's an odd design since they made it so damage resistant, and I don't like the way it looks.  You can get a similar phone outright, no contract, in the Moto X Pure, and just pop your SIM card from VZW into it.

That's a shame.  Haven't heard about that before.  Is it just VZW G4s, or all carriers?  I only ask because VZW bloatware gives me fits on my old HTC One M8 and on my mom's 1st Gen Moto X.

We literally couldn't have taken ours.  It was a '99 Chevy Lumina Sedan.

Plus, I have had both the 1st and 3rd Gen Moto X (Have the Pure now), and the Hey Google feature is fantastic.  Works wonderfully as handsfree without connecting to a car, and for asking it weather when I'm getting ready.

And LG is sitting there in the corner rubbing its hands and saying, "Good, Good"

Did you do a bad thing and use your rental car to take it?  Because that was one of the funniest paragraphs of a rental agreement I've ever read.  "DO NOT TAKE THIS VEHICLE ON THE ROAD TO HANA".  Especially true of the 1999 Chevy Lumina we had rented.

This is a strange comment, but I love the textured paint behind the TV in K'Von Wallace's house.  Reminds me of a friend's house, where his dad had the same thing in their basement, and we watched Sphere.  That has to be the most memorably scary movie experience, because the color and texture of the walls, and the color of the couches (a coral/sand fabric) was so perfect for the bottom of the ocean.

If you guys want to see some real white squirrels (they're a species of squirrel, not completely genetically distinct, but rarely interbreeds with grey squirrels) go to Pisgah National Forest in western NC.  There are quite a few of them, and there's even a festival for them.

Yeah, if his academics were the issue, then TSUN isn't nearly the academic institution it claims to be.  The guy has offers from Columbia, Dartmouth, and the Air Force Academy (which, oh, by the way, requires your Congresscritter to sponsor you for it).  I thought the Ivy League offered zero athletic scholarships, only academic, which means...

I loved that game.  Man was that an intense, old school football matchup.  It has to be one of my top 10 favorite Buckeye games of all time.

The great irony of it is that my parents live in western NC, near Asheville, and everyone actually seems to know how to drive in the snow there.  My mom does Yoga about an average 30 minute drive away from their house, and she said last time it snowed, it only took her 40 minutes to get there, and only because she takes it slower on the mountain roads when it gets below freezing.
