#12530262 What is a terrorist?

Posted by dohdough on 25 February 2015 - 03:16 PM

The application of the label of "terrorist" is a political tool used in the form of rhetoric against certain enemies of the state/status quo. Once the label is legitimized in legalese, the state can start picking and choosing what laws will and won't apply to these individuals allowing the state to deal with them carte blanche with wide public support. I'm sure that doesn't sound familiar to anyone at all...

It just sounds pretty. But thanks for the complement. You should make a whole DMC family. What about Nero for your next boy?

I'm thinking that Vergil will fly more under the radar than Nero, but it's in the running too! :rofl:

Too bad The Boss is getting naming privileges on the next one. Speaking of "The Boss," I totally forgot that Eva was a character in MGS! Totally planning on dressing Eva up as Big Boss/Naked Snake from MGS3 when I find a costume small enough. It's going to be so cute and bad ass with the bandana and eye patch.

On another note, I watched an episode of Ni Hao Kai-Lan and I think I'm hooked. She had me at sun fuzzies. Maybe it'll help me remember all the Mandarin I forgot. :lol:

I like Lucia personally.

Devil May Cry fan? :D

My girl has the same name as one of the characters, Eva, but it was more of a coincidence. Yuna's a beautiful name.

The next girl is going to be named Trish or if it's a boy, Vergil. I keed keed :lol:

LOLZ...I raise you:

My grandma would get me fried fish sandwiches from a local pizza joint after she picked me up from daycare and I'd watch it on tv while she was taking care of my sis that was just a year old. Thanks grandma! I still think of her even though it's been like 25 years since she passed away.

My first exposure to unfiltered anime was Guyver and Dangaio. My friend had a bootleg tape from his older cousin and I was blown away. This was years before US Renditions dubbed and subbed them.

Spiderman 3 would've been fine if it was just the Sandman, but they had to shoehorn Venom in. What a waste of both characters. I prefer Tobey as well.

This is unironically one of my favorite scenes in the movie:

Birth of the Sandman is my absolute favorite though.

#12468096 Surprisingly The Last Movie You Saw Didn't Suck Pt. 2

Posted by dohdough on 03 February 2015 - 02:56 PM

Big Trouble in Little China- lots of exposition, but leads the way for lots of humor and action. It's a film I would watch again, especially compared to the Thing. Kurt Russell is so John Wayne in this thing and it makes me wonder what crazy adventures he had while driving his truck. Too bad they never made more films.

Kurt Russell is actually the sidekick. ;)

Also, what idiots sell games that close to cost?!  I mean $58.90?  Don't they go directly to wholesalers?  I mean wtf?!

When I used to work for Circuit City(LOL), the POS system would shoot out crazy numbers like that all the time. PS2's with a $249.99 msrp "cost" Circuit City $249.96. Games had a $5-8 mark up. I'm guessing the POS system had staffing, shelving, and other related costs baked into the price of items. Oddly enough, tv's actually had the highest mark ups...like 100% with some top of the line models from Panasonic and Sony. It was nucking futs.

Our little guy just turned five months, still wakes up in the middle of the night, so that sucks.  He's still cool though. :)

My girl is almost 9 months and still wakes up so... :rofl:

Like you said: It's all love though. :)

#12444300 CAG Car Thread!

Posted by dohdough on 26 January 2015 - 05:55 PM

So my wife's 2014 Kia Sorento cd player has decided to hold my xmas gift to her of the soundtrack to Annie hostage.  Read online and saw some videos where people say the only way to get it out is to put out the player unit itself and open it up to pull it out.  We have had nothing but off and on problems with that unit ranging from wonky blue tooth to un responsive buttons.  I have taken it to the dealership and they can't figure out what's wrong with it.  What are my options ?  am I still under warranty as we did officially report problems with the unit during the first year??

Take it to another dealership. If none of them fix it, report them to Kia Corporate. I can't believe they didn't fix it under warranty right away. Easy money for them.

dohdough - by all means, let her "play" with the spoon and her food - that's how she's learning! But it doesn't have to be every time. If you are in a hurry just shovel the food in and get going. But if you've got the time to let her do it go for it.
Our 13 month old has never cared much for the utensils. She'd push them away and grab at the food on the spoon with her hands. I'm not sure if you  are familiar with the trending "baby led weaning" concept but it introduces solid chunks of food for the baby pretty early. Basically when they start eating "solids." We aren't exclusive to BLW but it is an option sometimes. (Me and my wife think getting a very wide variety of foods in the child early on helps so we puree a lot of stuff that a BLW baby maybe couldn't eat - plus we just don't really like seeing our child gagging/choking all the time.) Bananas are an excellent finger food for little ones as is soft avocado.
So if you haven't started finger foods give it a try. Just pick soft foods and cut the pieces small. As a plus it helps with their pincer grasp development. If you are interested in a food-related baby book - Feeding Baby Green (by Dr. Alan Greene) is a great one.
*edit* just wanted to clarify the "weaning" part of BLW isn't really stopping breastfeading or formula or milk or whatever. My 13 month old still breastfeeds. Though since I'm the stay at home parent she is eating a bit more and having less milk. My wife stopped pumping at the new year and we are running out of milk the end of this week so we are transitioning to cow's milk. It just seems like she eats more during the day with me than drinking. Hope that wasn't TMI haha!

Yeah, my only concern is that I don't want it to become a life-long habit of playing with food. That and chewing with one's mouth open are HUGE pet peeves of mine...hahaha.

She's pretty good overall with spoons considering she'll only grab at the spoon part to position it in her mouth and then grabs the handle. When she's done, she'll let go. I just have to keep hold of it so she doesn't gag herself. We've also been giving her Kix, grapes, avocado, and egg yolks so it sounds similar to BLW? Gonna try mangoes this week.

We're still breastfeeding at 8 months too, although it's not strictly by choice; she doesn't take the bottle with us and we've tried them all. She'll drink from the bottle with grandma though...haha. This girl REALLY likes it straight from the tap. :rofl:

I have the same thing with her eating more than drinking with me too. That added to the bottle issues, I just spoon-feed her water with her meals. It's pretty time consuming, but you gotta do what you gotta do, right? That just means more daddy-daughter time. :D

We've started the munchkin on solids a couple months ago and recently, she's been starting to play with her food so she's making a decent mess. I'm kinda on the fence as to whether I let her make the mess or take the spoon away from her. On one hand, she's taking the spoon and putting it in her mouth, but at the same time, almost none of the food is making it to it's destination...haha. It's not that I mind cleaning up; it's just that she tends to gnaw on the spoon rather than slurp up what's left on it.

What say you, CAG moms and dads?

Oooooooohhhhhh, I love when Doh thinks he has something on you. Like that dark secret about me that he claimed he knew but would never reveal. Please entertain me more. ;-)


So what you're saying is.... you have nothing to say
Great. So my taxes can go to not only provide formula to women who choose not to breast feed it can also go to support their malnourished children.

Like you two actually give a shit about the welfare of those children. It's the same rhetorical bullshit about gun violence in Chicago; you bring it up but don't give a shit about it either.

I guess I'm the moran here because breastfeeding is as easy as throwing the baby on the boob and switching sides after 15 minutes. :roll:

I sincerely hope that any prospective mother of your children, for both of their sakes because I couldn't give a shit about assholes spewing the kind of shit you two do, doesn't have any issues that come with breastfeeding and if they do, that you'd be more supportive than just telling them to "deal with it." Or maybe you'd cop out and go straight to formula the second there's a problem because "you can afford it."

You don't have to be a father to know these things, but it's pretty easy to spot a fucktard talking out of their asshole about this stuff. I'd love to see you two drop this bullshit in the gamer mom/dad thread.

Posted by dohdough on 24 January 2015 - 07:42 PM

Many young mothers (~70%) choose NOT to breast feed and yet cannot afford formula. AAP suggest you breastfeed for at least 12 months. Breast milk is essentially free. It is exponentially better for a developing infant then formula.
For those who choose not to breastfeed yet can't afford formula, through taxpayer funded programs, they are essentially taking $35 dollars a week which would be the cost of a weeks worth of Enfamil at Walmart if you buy the smallest size.

LOLZ...go on...
