Re: Awesome Thread: awesome

Will you ever get fruit? I don't know. Are there other peach trees within reach of pollinators? Oh yeah, I forgot about how all that works. I am pleased and proud of my little peach tree. It and I are both fairly useless. I don't bloom. And I'm sure the tree doesn't post inspiring words on forums. ...

Re: Rant Thread : For all your obscenity screaming needs

But you've just told me how much you hate Acme. When I need a widget, I might see two brands. Somewhere in the back of my head, I recognise the brand name Acme, but not the other.

Which do I go for?

Being talked about, for any reason, is an advertisement's goal.

I recently noticed that my bottom jaw goes a bit to one side. My gap between my two front teeth aligns over a single tooth on the bottom row. Never noticed a problem from it.

The disc did still contain subtitles in eight different languages including a "pikey" track, which only showed subtitles for the character Mickey.

It'd be a translation at that point, right?

Having barely seen any of them, it's probably not.

The first ones aren't great in my opinion, but they're riding on the fact that people loved them as kids. I forget what the word for that is.

Just finished book 5. I am now all caught up! Sweet, I am now officially immune to spoilers! Can't believe Jon died. He was, like, the second most likeable character after Tyrion. Lots of people aren't convinced he's dead. There's lots of ways he could survive, in that universe.

Best: the night I met my girlfriend. 7 years tonight. I still don't remember how I managed it. I do remember her kissing me first. She remembers me kissing her first.

Worst: probably two years ago when she fell asleep before midnight so I played on the Xbox. That was miserable.

YSN is wrong. Die Hard 2 is a great movie, but not as good as the first. Die Hard 3 is the best of the lot.
