#3214516 Need new camera

Posted by Salvo on 20 January 2015 - 12:51 PM

Need more info about what you want to make a specific choice.


Does size matter? (of course it does...) If you want something small, go with what Philly suggested. You'll lose a little bit in image quality, but it's a hell of a lot easier to carry around than a standard DSLR with a heavy-ass lens.


What do you typically take pictures of? Landscapes, people, family, sports, etc...This is typically where the lens comes in if you want to get real specific and care about the quality of picture.


If none of that really matters and just want something that's good all around, go with CWG's suggestion. Even though I use a Canon, I'm no fanboy. Nikon makes a quality camera and you'll do just fine with it. The fact that it comes with two lenses makes that deal much better and you can always upgrade later on. The 18-55 mm lens is for wider images while the 55-200 mm is the zoom lens. They're not as "fast" as something Jeremy would use in his pictures (corresponding to the f/ stop number...lower the number, the "faster")....but as CWG shows, it's more than sufficient if you're looking for some sporty shots.

#3213829 Don't complain about Richardson when Nascar does this

Posted by Salvo on 19 January 2015 - 08:01 PM

I'm a big racing fan, and NASCAR barely qualifies as a motorsport anymore.


Conceptually, it wouldn't be too hard to fix and have it become a respectable motorsport again, but it's status quo for the France family. They still think it's the Hollywood phonies they need to cater to when they've completely forgotten their Southern contingent.


It can crash and burn for all I care...

Put his ass on the bench.


Let's not act like we have the depth to start cutting offensive linemen all of a sudden.

When it comes to defense, I will trust Rivera's judgement in picking McD's successor.

#3187517 How did you pay for your college?

Posted by Salvo on 08 January 2015 - 04:55 PM

one plus is I've already passed my AP English III test last year so I won't have to take that in college and also I'm currently taking ap english iv and AP calculus so hopefully I pass those as well.




Be prepared to take those classes again. AP is overrated, IMO.


I had a couple of those classes and scored towards the top on my mathematics placement exams and still had to take bumfuq algebra and geometry in college because they conveniently didn't transfer over.


You might as well start bending over and spreadin' those cheeks because college is gonna rape you for all your worth. Especially if you go out of state....ESPECIALLY!

I went to community college first and got the GE classes out of the way. It was 20 bucks a credit hour 5 years ago in California.


Then I took a couple years off to join the Army and went into the National Guard soon after which I am still currently a part of. I had to sign a 6 year contract, but I get to use State and Federal tuition assistance, along with the GI Bill and Pell Grant (which just about anyone can get). Although there are new rules coming out to start clamping down on those funds.


Regardless, I'm double majoring in engineering and have zero debt.


Don't rule out going to a community college first to knock out the "fluff". And if you want to go the military route, consider the National Guard over the Reserves since you can tap into state funds as well. And you can serve your commitment as you go to school instead of commissioning and having to serve afterwards.

#3159557 Falcons locker room fills with poo

Posted by Salvo on 28 December 2014 - 07:43 PM



Things didn't go according to plan for the Falcons on the field Sunday after being beat by Carolina, 34-3, and now they're being met with a pool of human excrement after leaving the field.




Fitting end for a shitty season.
