  1. credit card problem

    I just had this happen two weeks ago on my new chip card. Since you still have to swipe at so many places, the chip part isn't secure yet. The person(s) using my CC# are very local. They hit gas stations, McDs, & autozone that are all within 10 miles of me. they had two days of fun before I locked it down. (since it was very local it didn't trigger fraud at first) Already marked the fraudulent charges and they've been refunded. They got ~$200 of stuff. My biggest CC fraud was in 2003. Someone got my # and then bought stuff in NYC cosmetic stores. total $2k.
  2. Official Animated Gif Thread

    Mr T wannabe. (I gotta find a video of him running through the door in the bouncer contest)
  3. uber gets regulated out of existence in austin tx

    Austin is a very "progressive" city. Actually all the big cities in Texas are democratic so it should come as no surprise that Uber would lose this vote. Self-regulation is typically reserved as a negative code word when attached to corporations. I live in Houston but didn't keep up with all of the details of this vote. Fingerprinting was only part of the new regulations. btw, I haven't seen Delhommey on the board in a while. He still around? He probably has a better take on this.
  4. Might be Jobless

    Good Luck, my current and past organizations have very open door policies so I feel free to address things in a professional manner. On a sarcastic note, I'll leave this......
  5. The Punisher Netflix

    I didn't care for the Dolph version, but enjoyed the more recent Thomas Jane (but hated Travolta). Haven't watched WarZone. I'm very interested in a Netflix version.
  6. X-Men Apocalypse

    I know she is a box office draw, but JLaw in these films irks me. Having DOFP revolve around her powers and now she takes over the Xmen....ugh. and as Mystique (both visually and acting), Rebecca >>>>>>>>>>> Jennifer.
  7. Riddle me this, liberals

    PIED for not posting Jim Carey's version.
  8. I haven't gone to a Comic Con in a long time....

    Err, they are selling some type of "fast pass / express" ticket line is that what you guys are talking about? Then the photo cost above that. Damn. I've got the disposable income, but I'd rather take a weekend to Cabo instead. Decisions, decisions.
  9. but the Aliens cast will be in Houston in June. Oh my lawd....I've never-ever spent money to meet a celeb, but Aliens is one of my favorite action films of all time. Yes I rate it above Terminator 2. Ripley - check Newt - check Hicks - check Hudson - check Burke - check Vasquez - check Drake - check Bishop - check btw, Kate Beckinsale & Eliza Dushku will be there also....mmmmmmmmmmmm. Has anyone else shelled out cash at one of these conventions to meet a celeb/writer/artist?
  10. A big deal? OR SNL ish?

    I honestly have never heard "CP Time". Is this a new-ish term?
  11. Leaked Batman v Superman Trailer

    My take on most all action/superhero/comic films is that the antagonist will make or break the story. The Hero won't be dying (in most cases). I haven't seen this film yet so I'm going to try to keep an open mind. But if they fugged up Lex's character which is what it sounds like....errrrr. I hated K.Spacey as Lex because camp (G.Hackman) was great in the 70s/80s, but not now. i.e. Age of Ultron was weak (IMHO) because Ultron was too snarky instead of just vengeful. The "trailer" Ultron (no strings on me) was great, the film version with daddy issues, not so much. Superman 1 - Hackman's Lex (good and campy, not an issue as this was a family film) Superman 2 - Terence Stamp as General Zod "nuff said" Note: I miss seeing this Huddle persona, that Jeremy fellow just doesn't meet expectations ;) Superman 3 - agree or disagree, but drunk and mean Superman was the antagonist. And the fight between Clark and evil Sups is awesome!!! Superman 4 - this never happened. I refuse to remember Reeves this way. Superman Returns - This is the not the Lex I wanted. Rosenbaum had a better feel for the Lex character seasons 1-5. MOS - Didn't care for Shannon's Zod. He was just good, not great.
  12. Carolina Panthers will target offense in round one

    Well you do have a 50-50 chance to be correct.....

  14. What is Classic Rock?

    My cutoff is August 1st, 1981. As soon as this image hit the airwaves. Any band/artist that had not released an album before this date I do not consider a "Classic Rock" band.
