#2740963 Man Who Never Served Prison Sentence Due to Clerical Error Arrested.

Posted by dos poptarts on Today, 10:25 AM

Judge should just call it House Arrest (time served) and the fact that the state never bothered to put the anklet or call the house is their problem. Tada....

First thing I'd do...laugh at those extreme doomsday preppers.

Second: Go grab doomsday preppers stuff.

Third: Go shopping for a convertible , fill up, light a cigar and drive around town enjoying the quiet.

Haven't watched or gone to events since Mankind retired in 2000. (sockO!!) That said....it is a soap opera for men w/ flying chairs and tennis rackets. Nothing wrong with it. Have fun.

#2726782 Any contractor willing to work on that Deathstar knew the risks...

Posted by dos poptarts on 04 April 2014 - 09:24 AM

Wasn't really a major one after re-reading it... Still, I'm so damn paranoid I'ma ruin this poo. You can't read anything remotely to do with GoT without chancing spoilers. There's even random memes out there that have given stuff away. I'm trying to get caught up, halfway through the third book now, and one episode into the third season of the show.


Not sure what the spoiler is for GoT....that major characters can get killed off is a major selling point about GoT. Davos comment? IIRC, the Onion Knight backstory was introduced when he was.


I'm only halfway thru book3 and will start the season 2 disks as soon as I get time to sit down and watch. Yes, I'm way behind.


Anyway adding in another series:

DragonLance Trilogies - Gaming system/mass production fantasy....Mix of "common man" characters who become major characters. But this may be an element of all D-n-D structures. How many people want to role-play "high-born" characters vs "common man" who becomes powerful. Appealing to the customers who feel like outcasts. Dunno. <Life could be good>


Any if anyone is attending or plans to attend NCSU....Prof Walter Meyer (sp?) used to teach fantasy fiction and Sci-Fi fiction courses. Took both. Great classes. He might even like this topic for the semester paper. Feel free to take it and run with it. ( I did my papers contrasting Hobbits vs other halfling characters(fantasy) and first contact scenarios focusing on language/linquistics (sci-fi)).


#2725690 Any contractor willing to work on that Deathstar knew the risks...

Posted by dos poptarts on 03 April 2014 - 10:26 AM

Was having a conversation with a friend that took an offshoot of the famous Clerks discussion about the rebels killing innocent contractors on the 2nd DeathStar.


Seems in many fantasy & Sci-Fi series, the regular guy gets the shaft. Only the heroes/villans are important everyone else is fodder. We tried to list series where the regular joe actually does OK or does his life just suck.


Since Game of Thrones will be starting another season...

GOT: The blue collar guy who either is sent to fight for one of the many banners or just be the innkeep/farmer who stays in the village and gets slaughtered/raped.

Debate ensues whether the Onion Knight is blue-collar or major character and if losing your finger-tips for smuggling but saving Stannis was worth it. Lean sucks column.

Of course you could take the position that everyone is fodder, but the regular folk just get it much worse. I voted <life sucks>


Walking Dead(TV): have mercy....if you aren't a star...you're fodder/a zombie. Of course similar to GoT...everyone will be fodder eventually. <life sucks>


Firefly: Consensus that regular folk get by. <life could be pretty good>


Star Trek: If money is no longer used in the 24th century who wants to be the person cleaning toilets on federation ships, I doubt Picard does his own housekeeping. <life sucks>


Star Wars: The Empire is power hungry, but life on Coruscant seems to keep going. Palpatine was in power for just a few decades. <life could be good>


Matrix: Regular guy is still in the Matrix and steaks still taste like steaks....<life could be good>


Just opening this up for discussion:





#2723829 Texans safety Danieal Manning cut

Posted by dos poptarts on 01 April 2014 - 04:20 PM

The Texans front seven isn't too shabby...


Since outside of JJ Watt, they have zero pass rush and a replacement value LB core since Cushing keeps getting Morgan'd...I'd say they were quite shabby.

Pie for anything Python related.



#2719272 Humans on verge of making new life from scratch

Posted by dos poptarts on 28 March 2014 - 09:59 AM

For some reason this comes to mind.


One day a group of scientists got together and decided that man had come a long way and no longer needed God. So they picked one scientist to go and tell Him that they were done with Him.

The scientist walked up to God and said, "God, we've decided that we no longer need you. We're to the point that we can clone people and do many miraculous things, so why don't you just go on and get lost."

God listened very patiently and kindly to the man and after the scientist was done talking, God said, "Very well, how about this, let's say we have a man making contest." To which the scientist replied, "OK, great!"

But God added, "Now, we're going to do this just like I did back in the old days with Adam."

The scientist said, "Sure, no problem" and bent down and grabbed himself a handful of dirt.

God just looked at him and said, "No, no, no. You go get your own dirt!"

#2718197 Still Think the War on Drugs is a Bad Thing?

Posted by dos poptarts on 27 March 2014 - 09:58 AM

War on drugs? I think there are a few more pressing issues here:


Judge signed off on a warrant on the evidence of a field test of 'wet' leaves that tested positive as weed. Granted I'm no expert on the accuracy of these tests, but since the police in the story haven't confirmed that their field sample was confirmed at a lab, I'm going to agree that it was indeed tea leaves. Imagine that lawyers could have a field day against any search that used these field tests.


SWAT/Militarization of the police. I think Floppin has provided plenty of examples....I think I still have the website that collects addresses that had been mistankenly SWAT'd somewhere.


Kansas law about not getting access to the records. On top of getting a lawyer, I'm calling my state and federal reps, local TV/radio, Quanell X (though I'm not black,  I think he'd listen to the story. He does know how to get media attention.)

#2714674 Lafell with a 14.04 percent drop rate last season

Posted by dos poptarts on 24 March 2014 - 01:49 PM

I have two LaFell drops "SEARED---SEARED" into my memory.

4th down @Arizona

3rd down @NewOrleans (even if Panthers go 3 and out after that play), Brees doesn't have time and Panthers go into halftime only down 14-6 instead of 21-6.

#2702503 Interstellar - Nolan's New Flick starring the naked bongo playing, shroom...

Posted by dos poptarts on 17 March 2014 - 02:20 PM

Nolan is probably the most brilliant man in entertainment. Beyond excited despite the confusion of what it might be about.


Also, wtf McConaughey? Went from a mediocre romantic comedy actor to Mud, Dallas Buyers Club, Golden Globe & Academy Award winner, and a Nolan film within a year.


Just think he had a rough mid 2000's (sometimes you just gotta pay the bills). I liked Time to Kill, Reign of Fire, U571, & the Lincoln Lawyer. And who can forget.....
