    More Middle East turmoil

    I should also note that I have no idea how you really truly solve this conflict short of one side annihilating the other, but I guess that makes me no different from the tens of millions of other people who've tried to figure it out, too.

    Happy Jingus Sucks Day!

    The part where the fat guy shows up and gives the other dude a wedgie is pretty intense. Do people pay to go to these shows? Somebody post more of these!

    Postal Service Question

    I bought a ton of dorm room shit there in '01 while driving down from Dulles.

    More Middle East turmoil

    I feel worst for the Palestinians who didn't vote for Hamas. Like, I would have been pissed if McCain had won our election, but ouch. The whole thing's a mess and I have no sympathy for Hamas, but as Czech and Byron have pointed out, this form of retaliation is going to be completely ineffective unless you actually want every person in Gaza dead, which is a pretty awful solution grounded almost completely in rather bankrupt nationalism.

    2009: The Year in Music

    Never ever? "Peacebone" and "Fireworks" and "Who Could Win a Rabbit" and "Grass" are pretty zippy and poppy, at the least.

    Titans, Steelers, Giants, Cardinals. The one thing that hurt the Cardinals when they played @ CAR earlier this year was the complete absence of a running game. With James finding his legs again, I think they pull the hilarious upset. The pick I'm most confident in is the Giants. Eagles played them tough both games and won in week 14, but the week off to gameplan and rest will be a big help. Giants get up 14-0 early on the run game, and end up holding on something like 27-20. As for the AFC, I think the Chargers are going to get rolled and the Titans have one good playoff game in them. Would not be surprised to see the Ravens eke it out since their defense has been getting better all year (Jim Leonhard and Ed Reed have played nastier every game down the stretch) while Tennessee's has seemingly been wearing down at the same time. I was surprised to see that the Titans didn't sack Flacco at all in the first game, but I think they're going to hit him a lot more this time around and cause a couple of mistakes.

    BCS Championship Game Thread

    Nothing to change my opinion of it being a good game the Gators ultimately win by 11-14 points. Looking forward to it, though.

    Were you worried it'd drop off after that and ruin it for you?

    Fallout 3

    I can't believe you got through the fire ant mission at that low level. Pretty sweet. You'll pick up more caps quickly as you start to go through the story missions and pick up a bunch of loot, and if you have decent speech skills you can talk some people into giving you more money than the default for the quest (for example, either Mr. Burke or the Sheriff in Megaton will give you 500 caps instead of 100 to do the bomb-related quest, if you pass the speech check). Otherwise, loot and sell everything you find that you don't need.

    Fallout 3

    1. The Naughty Nightwear can be given to another character later in the game for some caps. It's just a goofy sidequest thing, mostly, though the +10 to speech is nice. I personally like wearing it around at higher levels and wasting raiders while I'm in my undies. It looks exceptionally funny when you use, say, a flamethrower in VATS. 2. Is it that your long range aim is bad with missile launchers or the minigun? Those are probably the only "big guns" you have at the moment; all the two-handed rifles in the game (Hunting, Sniper, any unique variants) are considered small guns. 3. As far as I can tell, killing the Overseer during your escape changes some things about a sidequest you can get later in the game. It doesn't keep you from doing the quest completely, though.

    NFL Week 17

    Well, I'd also expect a Kraft family member to either 1) provide me with a healthy dose of cheese singles, or 2) be a little less than forthcoming about the status of the team's most important player heading into the offseason.

    Guys, I think Marney is dead.

    Too bad if true. She seemed like a nice lady. Unfortunate confluence:

    Fallout 3

    Have no fear, Byron. You can do fine in the game with pretty much any character, as long as you don't gimp your intelligence stats (since they give you more skill points at each level). And there aren't any soft-skinned 15-year-old heroes either, so that should be a nice change of pace.

    Phillips will probably be gone since Jones and the rest of management can't seem to acknowledge their own disastrous personnel decisions, both short-term and long-term. From 8-4 to 9-7 is pretty lousy, though. Maybe Jason Garrett finally gets the job.

    NFL Week 17

    No, but the fan who vote still love their Brett. I mean, Rivers didn't make it, Favre did. That just about sums up the merits of the Pro Bowl as well as any example can. I guess the fact that the two playoff-critical games appear to be pretty sloppy and sucky means it's not that bad that I'm stuck watching Washington/San Francisco. Two awful tastes that taste great together.

    I lol'd. I'm getting both Ravens/Jags and Skins/49ers tomorrow, instead of Dolphins/Jets and Cowboys/Eagles, respectively. I hate living in two local TV markets.

    Did pbone post kiddie porn?

    Having missed out on them, I feel both deprived and depraved.

    I'd be more interested in this if they successfully killed Hitler at the end.

    I'm desperately hoping for a pair of 8-8 champions in the NFC and AFC West.

    That's retarded.

    NFL Week 16

    Not exactly. If they beat the Redskins, Philly could still finish 9-6-1 with a Week 17 loss to the Cowboys, and Dallas, Chicago, and up to 2 of Minnesota, Tampa, and Atlanta can all still finish 10-6.

    The Bengals threw 9 passes today, and Cedric Benson had 38 carries. Were they just being mean to him?

    The feds got Blagojevich

    I watched that while I was listening to some New Order, and the fusaion actually made for a catchy little insta-remix. I think there's potential for a Blagomeback in Europe, at least.
