Oh I missed the alcohol conversation. I haven't been drinking much lately but I just picked up a bottle of scotch Macallan 12 year to be exact. Its awesome stuff. Never had scotch before.

Not sure as to the nature of the Kindle failures, but as a heads up, make sure to keep it away from laptops and other such electronics. My wife's Kindle failed after we went on a long trip and she put in a bag against her laptop. Couldn't get it to turn on after that, but we originally thought it was the airport x-rays. Recently we took another trip, this time no airports were involved, and she did the same thing and figured it was the laptop.


WTH? That sounds odd. I have mine next to my smartphone all the time without issues...then again its a smartphone and not a laptop.

I want that Metroid Prime Trilogy but I don't want to spend that much on it. I fucked up bad not getting it when it was common.

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.

I tried playing those games with motion controls, and I just couldn't do it.

I recently started looking for a new job again. I was looking to move within my current company so I could get my standard raise they owe me and they recently told me it would have to wait until March at the earliest, but more likely in September. I've been spending roughly an hour a day looking for jobs at my desk. Fun.

Morning, OTT.

Glad to see you all survived the Apocalypse...unless we are all dead and just don't realize it.

How do we know the world was supposed to end at midnight for the eastern time zone? What if it's actually 11:59pm? We still have 13 1/2 hours to go.

Something I read a while ago, but what if the world doesn't end in 2012 like we thought? What if all this time we've been holding the calendar upside down and the world actually ends in 5015?

One kindle fire was just due to kids dropping/throwing it. We have hardwood floors.
We got a gumdrop case for it after that. Second failure was due to the battery not holding a charge anymore it seemed..

I have a co-worker who seriously believes in astrology, alien visits, anything on Coast to Coast AM. "This is just the end of the Mayan cycle, now it is a time of change and rebirth. As we enter the age of Aquarius......"
People at work love just rolling their eyes at her or trolling her.

Did you have them replaced? My wife's kindle was acting kinda wonkey battery-wise. I'm just wondering if we're going to have to have it replaced.

I personally do not have a problem with the NRA or any lobby group for that matter...people can beleive what they want and I'll have my own opinions regardless.

However, blaming video games...are they REALLY going there? Did they just play that card?

I don't agree with it either, as I've been playing violent games all my life and I'm probably the least violent person you'll meet.

However, you have to admit that we do have a culture of violence, and is the media not a part of our culture? Still, it's no more to blame than our gun-obsessed culture is either.

Yeah, definitely weird. I have to carry a radio for work, and on more than one occasion I have had many things to carry, and I placed my smartphone and radio together, and my phone went black. I took it away and it turned on again, but every time I placed them together touching, my phone would black out.

I agree that there is a culture of violence and the media sensationalizes it, no question. This just reeks of the "Hey don't blame us, blame the other guy" argument. They're better than that.

Police in schools, funded by the Government and the NRA(I added that because they do want to help, right?). Absolutely should be discussed.

Arming Principals and Teachers...definately not. My kids are annoying and would be shot!

I don't know. There are many documented problems with having police in schools. Many inner city school already resemble prisons and I don't know if it's a good idea to expand on that.
HOWEVER, I think it might be a good idea to get volunteers to do the job, similar to volunteer firefighters. There are many ex-military/ex-police/ex-security people who are parents/grandparents and I'd be they'd be more than willing to do it. Also, the NRA has offered to pay for the training of anyone who would be willing to do this.

I'm just waiting on someone to find a steamID, gamertag, or the like and pick apart his gaming history. All the industry needs is to see cut scenes from Dead Space 2 shooting up the mutated first-graders and babies or the airport scene from MW on a MSM/cable news loop.

Hysteria and knee-jerk reactions just pile-on and encourage the sh*t legislation- maybe Al & Tipper Gore can fire up the PMRC again and start going after gaming, I'm sure a fair share of both parties will join in.

That's the thing...you don't hear about these horrific school shooting happening in the inner cities. I have heard the idea of ex-military...I like that.

It seems to me that members of the NRA are probably more likely then most to let their kids play Call of Duty and the like at an early age, so it seems like the NRA is attacking their own members. Maybe I'm wrong, though.

Is there a Blu-Ray version of the original Star Wars Trilogy, theatrical release? You know, Han shoots first and all that. Or are we stuck with the new and "improved" versions on Blu-Ray?

At least it seemed like most places around here were prepared for the snow by salting the highways and such this morning when it first started.

Only version of the Theatrical Version ever released was on VHS Tape (First Release, not the Silver Box Trilogy) and on LaserDisc.

Thats it.

Anyone here own a Roku? Considering picking one up (either that or an AppleTV, but I like the idea of channels) to replace my $110/mo Time Warner Cable.
