  1. The military can disqualify you based on bad credit? Goddamn. I couldn't tell you what my credit score is right now. It's whatever they give you when you have tons of debt and decide to stop paying your bills.


    They do that because if you have high amounts of debt, you are more likely to be bought by the enemy or influenced to give away secrets and such.

  2. Owen Hart was just a tragic accident, however Vince deciding the show must go on was ridiculous. When planes crash at air shows, the shows stop. I believe when Detroit Red Wing Jiri Fischer collapsed on the bench and needed CPR ringt in front of the players and then rushed to the hospital not knowing if he was going to survive the game was called.


    On the other hand Rae Carruth of the Carolina Panthers in the NFL had his pregnant girlfriend killed (and might have even did it himself) because she wouldn't abort the baby. The NFL was never really piled on as far as I can remember.


    Up here at the Tacoma dome there was an incident at the monster truck rally where some metal came off a truck and killed a kid and they kept going. And had shows the rest of the weekend.

  3. People really thought Jeff was going to win?


    Trips really did his job.


    Yes. He's really mastered the "bury everyone else on your roster and beat the guy you don't clean" method of being a face.



    Losing the match to the Champ isn't getting buried, the Champ isn't supposed too lose.


    Trips has only been the champ since Backlash.


    Is Joe burying people in TNA when he doesn't lose his title matches?


    Is Nigel burying people in by not losing title matches?


    Jeff Hardy doesn't deserve the title, and you all know it.


    Alright...I'm going to make the mistake of not treating you like a retard...

    HHH has spent every show leading up to a ppv since moving to SD! walking around explaining to people (MVP, Kendrick) why they aren't in his league.


    He took Khali seriously. Beat him clean.


    He tool Hardy somewhat seriously (after kinda burying him on the mic) and beat him clean too.


    After Koslov there is NO ONE LEFT that HHH puts on his level.



    And I'm telling you, don't insult me again.


    Triple H has beaten Khali, Cena, Edge, and Jeff Hardy all in good single matches. He hasn't buried anybody.

    Nigel has beaten everybody in roh twice as Champion...Does that means he's burying them?


    Joe has beaten everybody he has come up against since being Champ...Is he burying people in TNA?


    Get a fucking grip, nobody expected Hardy to win going in to this match. The fact that they actually thought he had a chance, means both guys put on a good match and made people forget it was Jeff fucking Hardy in there, and that the WWE will probably never put the title on the guy, because he's a FUCKING JUNKIE! People getting mad that Jeff lost, just shows that both guys did a good job in that match, making you believe he might have a chance,.



  4. This is a contradiction to what you wrote earlier. You said that if you can't afford to buy a house without using credit you should be a renter. That probably eliminates like 95% of the US population. Maybe we just misunderstood you earlier.


    This is what I put down.


    What's wrong with renting or living within your means? People don't NEED gigantic houses. Well, unless you have 6 or 7 kids.


    I think there has got to be a better plan out there than this bailout as currently constructed. There's gotta be.


    Most people live within their means dude. I've explained the reason why own vs. rent is always amost a better deal and for some people they need some help with the down payment portion but it will be a fixed amount. I don't think anyone here is disagreeing that some people extended themselves way to far with the hope that the housing market would continue to rise and they could sell or refinance before the readjustment hit them. They gambled and lost. Some knowingly and then some unknowingly when the lenders agreed to give them no doc, no down loans and just hammer the point on the monthly payment is the same as you're paying now and not really telling them what happens in year 5 or 6. Certainly if those people knew what they do now they would take the $100 or 200 higher payment for the next 30 years rather than it balloon.


    Note that I don't think people shouldn't read up on what they are signing but unfortunately some people put trust not only in the lender but also their agent who is *supposed* to be working for them.

  5. We've always had loans available for less than 20% down (HUD etc). The problem is the types of loans that were given the last 5-7 years. Interest Only, ARMs etc to get people into a house that is bigger than they could afford.


    Putting down 5% just means that your payments are slightly higher with a fixed interest but you are within your means. Putting down 10% on a house you probably won't afford with an ARM which you took so your payments could be within your range and then getting them blown up to high hell is an issue. People and lenders were looking in the short term and saying you can buy this $400,000 and pay what a $200,000 house would cost and then in 5 years you can refinance out or sell and buy a new house since the market was high. Then it bottomed out and some people can't take on the readjusted mortgage payment.

  6. 909, you have to remember one of the benefits to owning a house is that if you do it correctly (Let's say the FHA loan with 2%) and you are responsible with your budget you can get a mortage that is less than or equal to your rent for a fixed 30 years.


    Compare that to renting for 30 years and the if the rent goes up 5% per year and your income only goes up annually 3%.

  7. I'm a big fan of mega threads. If you want to start another thread for a topic that warrants one go right ahead, but I don't see any reason we should get rid of the mega threads. Because there are plenty of comments that really don't need a whole thread, and mega threads help prevent bumping of ancient threads for no reason. See: Douchebag in the video game folder as one example. I mean, if I finally see a movie that came out 3 years ago, and I have something to say about it, it makes more sense to me to go to the movie folders CTDWAT and say my piece, rather than bumping a 3 year old thread to add some minor comment.


    That is debatable. You may make a comment on a movie I've recently seen as well and unless I scour the mega thread all the time I may miss it and that would kill off a potential discussion whereas bumping the old thread I could read through the prior comments and yours and either respond or make my own comment.


    Pictures I Like and those type of "What are you thinking" threads definitely can be a mega thread.

  8. I have such a dumb question but how many play on hard normally and how long did it take for you to play normally on hard?


    I tried it last night with Rockband 2 and I got to the point where I was just ready to start smashing the guitar. My have a few problems when trying to play on hard.


    1. I tend to move my hand over to fast and forget where the buttons are.


    2. After a few notes are played, I can't tell what fingers are on what buttons and have to look down to replace my fingers.


    3. when a blue note comes up, 85% of the time I'll go right for the orange button.


    Any tips on handling the guitar while playing on hard mode?


    Learn to slide your index finger from Green to Red so that if your index is on Red, your pinky is on Orange, index on Green then pinky is on Blue.


    Helps a lot.
