  1. Patagonia

    when it comes to clothes lines like this... you absolutely get what you pay for I used to be a Columbia guy, but their clothes just don't hold up as well to some of the other brands I've started picking up. i'm mainly an eddie bauer person now since they're one of the few brands that make nice clothes in tall that will also fit my broadshoulders the northface's, Patagonia's, etc. of the world generally cater to the 5'9" 150lbs club... but their stuff is built to last one day, i'll have a weeks worth of clothing all from l.l.bean and i'll never have to worry about buying clothes again
  2. Captain America: Civil War

    he will be by the end
  3. Marvel Contest of Champions

    you just have to keep playing... I've only found one Alliance event that really panders to those that pay to play, and that's summoner advancement. I haven't spent a dime on the game and am decently competitive, its just a matter of putting in the time. and really, between all the different things you can do in the game between story quests,event quests, all of the alliance events, etc. there's plenty of things to keep my attention out of duel credits for today since duel skirmish is going on, but I like that duped 4* electro you've got... definitely one of my favorite characters. i'm at the same username as here as well how's your alliance? I was a part of a pretty good one for a while, then all of a sudden everyone decided that nobody wanted to lead anymoreand it just imploded. the good members merged with another alliance and I somehow got sent off to a side alliance of the new alliance, which I joined just to continue the events and not miss out on rewards, etc. but it's not very organized
  4. Marvel Contest of Champions

    yes... started playing around thanksgiving

  6. Maximize Your Noise

    this is AMAZING I can't imagine what it would sound like with only a handful of these in the crowd here's the video from the instructable so people have an idea of what it is:
  7. How much does a Sunday Giveaway football cost?

    when they smile... after seeing the first girls smile and excitement, all I could think of when I saw that second kid snatch the ball and run away was, 'what an ungrateful brat'
  8. David Bowie has died

  9. Buying a Vehicle part 2

    i think an xterra might be your best bet... I love those things. my good buddy had one for several years and any time they would come down from Ohio, i'd get to drive it through the mountains. for the size, it handles great and has a really good ride. plus, full 4x4 capabilities and tons of space and abilities for racks, boxes, bikes, kayaks, etc. he started with a pro-4x frontier, then went to the pro-4x xterra and then had a pro-4x titan. he's driving a very nice Mercedes wagon now, but misses the xterra the most out of everything he's had over the past few years. when I sell my car in the next year or so, i'll probably be looking at xterras and 4runners/sequoia's i'll also chime in on the outback as my wife bought one last year (it was a 2011 with 30k miles and we got it for $20k - premium, all the bells and whistles minus nav and leather seats). this is probably my favorite car that we've ever owned and I've sung the praises of my Honda fit on here many times (obviously in two different classes, but I love that little car a LOT and it takes a lot for me to say the outback is better). while it won't have the handling capabilities offroad orin 4x4/awd that the xterra will have, it's still mightily impressive. it seats the same amount of people and still has a ton of roomfor storage. plus, with the newer models that have the continually shifting transmission, it's an incredibly smooth ride from a transmission standpoint. I was leery of the idea when we first test drove it and have always hated automatic transmissions, but it's made me a believer. one of my other favorite perks is that it comes standard with the hidden crossbars. we just recently bought a thule box for the roof so that our dogs can have all the room in the back when we're traveling (they're spoiled) and it's very nice. bottom line, the outback can handle everything the xterra can as far as transporting bikes, yaks, gear and can hold it's own out on the dirt roads on the way to hiking or even in the snow.
  10. Looking for some new Sci/Fi or Fantasy novels.
