    Shhh... your logic will complicate their simple, obvious solutions.

    British Hostage Crisis with Iran

    Understandable, but not relevant to the situation here. You don't know that. It's interesting to see you apply very different standards of the burden of proof to Britain in this case and Saddam Hussein in the case of Iraq.

    Battlestar Galactica

    I LOVE the character of Gaius Baltar. First, he looks and acts like the evil, British version of a friend of mine which is kind of freaky. But yes, I love the guy... I love his internal conflict, the thought of witnessing his redemption... but I also love the thought of his destruction. The writers have set up a brilliant character with whom they would really be justified in doing anything as far as the logical directions of the storyline go. Plus, I think he is the Cylon God incarnate (possibly).

    Battlestar Galactica

    Totally loved it. The thing you have to remember about the Final Five is that they were boxed, which means the other Cylon models didn't like them... that doesn't necessarily mean anything but it's important to keep in mind. I'm also working on some thoughts about Baltar being the Cylon Christ. Great episode, Lee's speech was one of the best moments of the series.

    People were saying that Heroes (one of my favorite shows BTW) was a better show and I did try to point out that Lost is unparalleled on network TV as far as writing goes. Whoever said that we're used to it is exactly right. I actually think we're supposed to expect these connections, I do not think the writers believe that they are putting on an ending no one will expect. I do have to give credit where it is due and that goes to Dub. Not that you liked or disliked an episode... but that you posted your thoughts either way.

    NBA Roundtable Discussion

    Rip, my comment to you was in reference to "bells foul on Kobe wasn't that bad". By "the league" I mean David Stern and his sycophantic cronies. My point exactly is that Kobe sells out arenas, sells jerseys, AND speaks his mind without regard for what's politically correct in the NBA. They don't like that. They've moved on to Lebron & Wade (both players I really like, BTW) because they're too young to say anything against the league. It's pretty obvious when you watch the games, the young guys are getting more calls. Hell, Raja Bell is getting more calls than Kobe. To the other guy, whose handle I've never seen, fuck off... and it was a 98% cut, in federal income tax for a married couple with two kids and an income of $40,000.

    Bell's clothesline didn't get more games because it occurred during the playoffs, and Phoenix was down 3-2.

    The league IS out to get Kobe. He is the best player, but he is not the most marketable. He doesn't say what people want to hear, he doesn't give the media smooth sound bites, he cares more about basketball than kissing David Stern's ass. The league IS out to get Kobe. Ripper, you may want to check and see if your TV is plugged in when you watch the NBA.

    The Gun Control Thread

    You are talking out of your ass. Who sold you this load of crap? The purpose of the Second Amendment is not for self-defense, hunting, or target practice. It is a check on the government for the citizenry. It's pretty basic American history if you look into it.

    Do People Believe In God To Survive?

    Seems surprisingly fair. I'm glad there's a group that can start to show how there is a method for science & spirituality to be complementary instead of opposing ideas.

    Rome season 2

    Titus Pullo has been unleashed! You have to hand it to the writers, as we're now rooting for Antony and Atia (somewhat) and against Octavian. Oh, and Agrippa is a woman, a straight up pussy.

    Neither Texas A&M nor Tennessee will see the second round.

    Lovely. The Trojans get Texas in Round Two. I was hoping for Sweet 16, but oh well. As much as I respect Tim Floyd, no strategy can stop Kevin Durant with our personnel. My Final Four: Ohio State, Georgetown, UCLA, Oregon

    Man, I thought the reaction would be much less positive to Locke effectively blowing up everything concrete about the Dharma initiative. My hope is that now that there has been a tangible example of how not talking to each other about what they find can literally blow up in their face, hopefully they'll start talking to each other a little more about all the other weird stuff that has been going on. Good episode.

    This week in the NBA

    Rip, the difference between Kobe's move and Bruce Bowen's is this. Bowen IS trying to hurt people and doesn't want to get caught. You and I both know that what he does is a classic dirty play. Kobe is not trying to hit a guy in the face. I don't know King, but I can tell you I have watched Kobe play 99% more than anyone else on this board. That move is what he does, usually unsuccessfully, when he flops and tries to draw a foul. He does it ALL THE TIME when he drives the lane. He has only recently started doing it on jumpers... it's only natural for the motion to hit a guy when he's closing out. Kudos to Jaric and excuse me if I don't put too much stock into Ginobili's reaction from a few weeks ago. Of course, Kobe did it on purpose, but it's also readily apparent that there was no malice involved... none. Oh, and King, I like your use of "bumfuck nowhere"... can I use that?
