  1. I got a 0 too, much to my surprise as I didn't spend a lot of time on it. For the rest of the day I'm going to run around yelling, "I'm a zero! I'm a zero!" I doubt anyone will disagree with me. (Male, 30-39)
  2. I love then-and-now pics, and these (both Normandy and Gettysburg) are fantastic. Thanks for posting them.
  3. I swear I've been over here a couple of times since this thread was started, but somehow I missed it. Amazing--thanks for taking the time to share all of this.
  4. We now rejoin "Weird Houston News", already in progress... linkified
  5. Hmmm... Seemed kinda Thin Red Line-ish. I personally liked that movie, though I get why many others didn't. (Enter snippy comment about all the really neat stuff lost in the forum purges here.) In any case, I'll be looking forward to this.
  6. Yeah, maybe, but it was absolutely compelling after that!
  7. Sooooo close! I wasn't rooting for either team and I'm not even much of a hockey fan in general, but I was literally on my feet for the last few minutes of that one. Wow.
  8. I love sausage (in a totally manly way). My favorite is Carle's Bratwurst. But I like it all--hot Italian, smoked, chorizo, kielbasa, etc. It's not something I eat very often, though I enjoy it thoroughly.
  9. Thanks for this. I am not an ASLer but I played enough SL in my day that I wanted to see these.
  10. I went ahead and fixed that for you. Not that it's any of my business at all, but I didn't know you had a Texas connection. Or is Texas now exporting our superior history to other, lesser states? Hmm...
  11. Am I the only one who is not surprised that this was spotted close to Houston? Now I'll be half-expecting to wake up in the middle of the night for no apparent reason and sit up just enough for one to engulf my head and suck brain out of my nose. Or somefink.
  12. I got in and out in less than an hour at my polling station near downtown Houston this morning. The wife canceled out my vote for the third presidential election in a row. Then I got to come home and listened to the wife and my dad (who is visiting from Ohio) argue about which was worse, committing perjury because of a blowjob or the Iraq war. Somebody please tell me election season is OVER!!
  13. Just had to say that this thread is fantastic. I've been laughing all the way through, except for the couple of days where I stopped to take everything off the walls of my house. You know, just in case.
  14. Heh. I spent a whole day on this a couple of months ago. My solution for Mission to Mars: http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=924302. I would never have dreamed of some of the stuff y'all have come up with. Big Ball (that's what she said): http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=912388. Actually pretty similar to GJKs.
  15. Just checking in. Things in my neck of the woods aren't normal, but they're not terrible, either. Still no electricity at home (even though houses within 30 yards of ours have it--grrrr) so I'm posting from my office. Our house suffered what seems like only minimal damage--one, possibly two very minor water leaks and some paint removed from the patios. We live in a 3-story townhouse in a crowded part of town, so I can't actually get far enough away from our building to assess damage to the roof, and I have no way of getting up there myself (not that I would anyway). I'm considering pu
