    That could be, quite possibly, the dumbest comparison I have ever seen on this forum, and that is saying something.  There is, however, no surprise of where it is coming from though.
    Yes, of course you are baffled, because you are hypocrite and don't understand.   You cry and moan for these unborn souls to come to life but after that you don't give a crap about them and have no care or thought about what happens past that.   So they are born and then you wipe your hands clean and decide they are on their own and its time to pull themselves up by the bootstraps.    Yet you will complain about their funding and "hand outs" later on in life.

    House of Cards is good, but until you watch The Wire you can't compare anything, trust me.  When it comes to TV shows, there is The Wire at the top and then everything else below it, imo.
    I don't think we should put True Detective, BoB, Fargo, etc in the same category because they have one season to make a tight, controlled story, but other shows are across seasons so I think there is too much of a difference.

    1. Guardians of the Galaxy
    2. Avengers
    3. Captain America: Winter Soldier
    4. Iron Man
    5. Avengers 2: Age of Ultron
    6. Captain America 1
    7. Iron Man 2
    8. Thor
    9. Thor 2
    10. Iron Man 3
    Hulk with Norton is underated though.  Havn't seen Ant-Man yet.    If you included X-Men, 4 of those movies would be in the top 10 easily.   I think the first rebooted Spider-Man was really good and the best take on Spider-Man so far but not sure any Spider-Man movie would make it in the top 10 at this point, MAYBE #2 toward the bottom and only because of the strong work of Doc Oct, which was the ONLY good villian a spider-man movie has put out.   Technically Blade is Marvel but I'm keeping it out and just sticking with superheroes.

    People will still want an actual person.  Same reason people still go into the bank when 99% of the stuff can be done online or at an ATM.

    You know, I'd be onboard with banning abortion if the people that are against it were in line to adopt these children that no one wanted.  The last time I checked there was something like 400k kids in the system that no one wants.  I'm pretty sure there are WAYYYYY more Christians in American than that, actually, there are even more Evangelicals if you want to get even more specific.  Why aren't these do-gooders adopting or fostering these children that have no home?
    Until they are, they are hypocrites.  They want these children that no one wants born, and then whine and moan about supporting the cost of raising/taking care of them, then complain even more about government funding that is required for them to live their life because of a screwed up cycle and life that you forced them into.  
    So what I say is, put your money where your mouth is, and go and adopt and foster those kids you most desperately want to be born, but guess what, 99% of the people won't.
    And I'm with the other poster that wanted to know if all of you against stem cell research will swear off getting treatment for yourself, loved ones, children, etc that came about because of this research?  I bet you won't when it comes down to something AFFECTING you.

    Got enterprise edition so I can't do it, so will probably just format and reload a different version to get the upgrade.  Heard good things though.

    .... And yet election reform is only brought up by Bernie Sanders and a few others and even more scary is that most of the nation doesn't even care about it or see it as a problem.  This is an issue that almost every American should agree with.

    Yeah I don't think you can be a Uber driver if your car is more than like 5 or so years old.   Taxi drivers drive crazy so I'd much rather avoid them if possible.  Here in Charlotte outside of my work buildings it's always a bunch of crazy Taxi guys out there screaming at each other.  I think they are Ethiopean or something.

  9. Zaximus added a post in a topic Anyone here good at dog training?   

    I may be spoiled since I have only owned German Shepherds, but I never needed to "pop" my dogs or use shock collars, ever.    A stern voice, not screaming, at the time of the infraction would do the trick.
    Crating is not a bad thing at all if you never use it as a disiplinary tool.  Going to the crate should be a good thing for your pup, not a bad.  Put them in there while you're watching TV or something for an hour here and there and they'll eventually be OK with going in there.
    I was walking my dogs with leash even when they were tiny and didn't need it yet just so they get used to it.
    Also hold your dog a lot, but mostly mess with their ears and stuff so they aren't so weird about it when they get older, trust me.  Also their feet too.
    Dogs generally want to please you, so you just have to let them know WHEN they are doing something wrong, not a minute after.

    New season has been pretty good.  First season was a roller coaster and yes the Master was completely stupid.  You just have to take the show for what it is, a fun ride with some action, gross stuff, and vampires.  Luckily Del Toro's imagery makes me worth a watch but there won't be any Emmy nominees on this show.

    I think compared to most other shows this season would be top notch, it's just hard to touch the first season, and the actors are just better from the first season as well.  I think people liked the, at least we thought, paranormal stuff going on and it was interesting.  I really like McAdams character though, and Vaughn is doing the best he can.   I completely understand why people wouldn't like this season though, so I don't think it's fair to hate on them, plus not all shows are for everyone.  
    I think this is just something you have to prepare for, for anthology shows.  Not all American Horror Story seasons are alike and there is a good change Fargo won't touch the first season as well.

    I found Goody's headache powder works in a pinch, and works fast, it's not too bad just fold it and put it on back of mouth and drink something, although they have flavors now I think.
    I had a wisdom tooth that did this, it was painful but the nerve eventually died after a couple months.  It was only really bad if you lay down, so you could sleep in a recliner sometimes.   It'll probably come back though but by then you may be set.  I eventually had the wisdom tooth pulled, and it was such a relief, immediately.   It was driving me a bit nuts being so close to my brain, so make sure you aren't going a bit crazy.  
    I also had success with ice cubes, keep it in there as long as you can and it can numb and give some relief, it'll also dissipate some of the gas that is causing the pain in the tooth for a short time.
    One time someone gave me a strong pain pill and I was out for like 20 hours, woke up and it was gone and did its thing, maybe you know someone that could help you out?

    Is this something almost everyone on here can agree with?  I think it is.   It's absolutely rediculous how police are using this.

    Beat me to it.  Nothing the American public has could ever stop the Government's tanks/drones/aircraft etc.  And do you think citizens in the military would just go along with stuff now?   The law is just outdated now.

    WWE wouldn't have fired Hogan if they hadn't heard the tape themselves or had good reason to believe it was true.  This isn't some mid-carder here.  They had him on their Tough Enough show and all that.
