    1.60 is about the cheapest on the Northside of Houston. My normal spot is 1.65 a gallon.

    NFL Week 11

    I got to watch the Texans at work and man, does the Texans not know how to win. Its just sad seeing a team that is just fucking bad play. Both their QBs suck, their head coach sucks, their play calling is bad. They need to trim 40% of the fat from this team to see them do anything good.

    NFL Week 11

    Thursday night game no one can watch NY Jets at New England Battle for AFC East lead....I will go with old QB and say Jets by 10. Early Denver at Atlanta AFC West sucks, so ATL by 14 Houston at Indianapolis Most years, this is a blow out, this year, is no different. Indy by 20. Tennessee at Jacksonville Last chance for an AFC South team to beat the Titans, but another win by 10. Oakland at Miami MIA by 13 Baltimore at NY Giants I hope B'More wins but I just doubt it. NYG by 21 Detroit at Carolina Not even Carolina could screw this up. 14 point win. Philadelphia at Cincinnati Philly wins this "pick up" game without effort. Win by 6 because they will show no effort. Chicago at Green Bay GB wins this one. Maybe by 7 possibly as low as 5. New Orleans at Kansas City Minnesota at Tampa Bay Late St. Louis at San Francisco Crappy game, SF wins by 3. Arizona at Seattle Ugly game, Zona by 7 San Diego at Pittsburgh This should be the Monday night game, then it wouldn't be such a crappy affair. But SD loses again to make the West more of a joke. Pitt by 17 SNF Dallas at Washington Dallas season is over if they lose. So they win by 3. Football on Monday night Cleveland at Buffalo Ugh, won't watch this one, but Cleveland wins by 6.

    I own the whole collection sans VOL 6 and American Dad Season 1. It is not worth the money for just those two.

    2008 HOF Finals

    I would have said no to Barron on his high level of bitching why X got banned. Plus his harping on spelling in every one else's post just seem to trivial. TO put him in a class of "one of our best posters ever", and he isn't on that level yet.

    Perry Saturn

    How does a person with THAT many tats not get noticed ANYWHERE? It isn't like he was a VP of a major company and moved away where he could blend in. Saturn looks like he would stick out no matter where he goes.

    From 5pm(whatever timezone you are in) until the polls close will be the madhouse. Thats when people are going to be in the multi hour long waits. Thats what will fuel any firepower for lawsuits if its a tight race.

    NFL WEEK 10

    Thursday Night DEN @ CLE Tough call: they both swing from good to suck too often for my blood. Um...DEN by 10. Sunday, 1:00 NO @ ATL ATL throws all over this Aints team. ATL by 14. TEN @ CHI TEN has a real test, but if Rex is starting, TEN by 10. JAC @ DET If JAC was bad enough to lose to CIN then they can give DET their first win and become the laughing stock of the league. DET by 3. BAL @ HOU Odd seeing a NFL week 2 matchup here...oh yeah, IKE. Doesn't matter HOU by 3. SEA @ MIA MIA wins because West-coast teams are horrible at 1:00pm starts on the East-coast. MIA by 13. GB @ MIN GB wins to make everything in the North worth watching. GB by 6. BUF @ NE NE needs the win, but BUFF will not be a push over....coinflip gives NE by 3. STL @ NYJ JETS should murder them, but Farve can keep it close by his INTs. But Jets should win by 14. Afternoon games CAR @ OAK CAR by 20. Its the Raiders, enough said. IND @ PIT PIT wins and Indy playoff hopes are DONE. PIT by 7 KC @ SD AFC west sucks, so um, SD by 7 just because they flat out have more talent. NYG @ PHI I want Philly to win so that the Giants are knocked down a beg, but I am going to say that the Champs by 14 in a shoot out. MNF SF @ ARI This game is going to suck big time. This looks like a horrible game for MNF. Still, the Cards win by 21.

    Campaign 2008

    Lets see here is the text from the first amendment: No where in there says anything about being called out for what you are doing, refusing private plane rides, or not wanting to do interviews with people because you find the interviewer to be retarded. Press is allowed to say and do what they please. Palin can say what she want on attacks. Obama/Biden are not taking interviews with idiots. Their staff is only going to shuffle around supporters, not people against them. It isn't like its Northwest denying someone because they are voting R. Even though each plane company can do so.

    Maybe, just maybe that both are tasteless and have no business being done. Maybe both are done by idiots that do more harm to their cause than good? Can't be that logical.

    NFL Week 9

    Sunday, Nov. 02 Game Time TV N.Y. Jets at Buffalo 1:00 pm Jets need to win here, but Buffalo should win this one. Thanks a couple INTs by Farve and one being a "pick6". 27 to 20. Detroit at Chicago 1:00 pm DET goes 0-8 21 to 9. Jacksonville at Cincinnati 1:00 pm CIN goes 0-9. 19-14 Baltimore at Cleveland 1:00 pm New browns beat old browns. 28-24 Tampa Bay at Kansas City 1:00 pm Pissed off TB wins this one easy 35-6. No LJ makes this one no contest. Houston at Minnesota 1:00 pm HOU comes back down to earth by being run all over the place. 26-16 Arizona at St. Louis 1:00 pm Rams win again, to suprise many. Make this a divisional race. 17-16 Green Bay at Tennessee 1:00 pm TENN by 10. 31-21 Miami at Denver 4:05 pm Denver slows this one down so they can win it. 16-13 Dallas at N.Y. Giants 4:15 pm My heart wants the Dallas to win it. But my head says take the champs. Giants 35-14 Atlanta at Oakland 4:15 pm ATL wins again, but its like stealing from a kid with downs syndrome. 35-3 Philadelphia at Seattle 4:15 pm Close ugly game that shouldn't be. East coast Birds 17-14 New England at Indianapolis 8:15 pm Last year, this was a MAJOR game. This year, not so much. But the Colts win it to stay somewhat in the divisional race. Monday, Nov. 03 Pittsburgh at Washington 8:30 pm Coin toss yielded a Pitt win, so I will say them by a touchdown. 28-21

    Gas Price Check...

    There seems to be a dartboard of bullshit excuses for why it goes up and down. I am just going to use Houston as my example because thats all I can talk about with any knowledge. Prices go up: a: international demand has risen, (yet everyone was buying at same pace, price almost doubles). b: there might be a shortage in 5 years. (yet everyone is buying at same pace, price almost doubles). c: Cost of production went up(yet profits for EVERY major and minor oil company goes through the roof). d: lack of refineries prevents the price from coming down.(yet same refineries working today, price down 50%) e: Hurricane Dolly, Gustov, and Ike shut down all off shore sites, some a damaged, price needs to go up. (except 2 of the 3 missed them completely. Ike went over them, but they were all shut down, within 24 hours a few were already back up. Most were down for a week max, yet our surplus was not even really dented. Price really stayed the same, except for people trying to price gauge). f: Lack of US off shore and ANWAR drilling is keeping the price high.(yet still haven't touched either yet and the price still is down) g: Hybrids, high MPGs cars, and low demand, has off set our internal cost, prices needs to go up to pay off production(I am not making that one up). Prices go down: a: While it is true, there is an international financial crisis (except in the wallet of Exxon/Mobile) b: Saudi leaving OPEC (yet we get most of our oil and gas from Canada) c: world wide people are driving less. (But have to be counting the mall trips because people HAVE to go to work and school). d: threat of off shore drilling (gas down 60 cents at the pump over night, yet nothing happens in terms of drilling). e: People abandoning gas guzzlers (yet for the area, most bought truck was used F250 diesels). f: Supposed opening of a new refinery that could drop the price of diesel down to a buck a gallon(yet still new and closed). g: people want cars now that have high MPGs(yet the two most wanted cars in the area and the new v8 Camero and the new v8 Challenger) But around the 4 largest city in the US, second in terms of land mass, there hasn't been much change to peoples actions. Only thing that has dropped in sales at the mall because what would have gone to that polo shirt went to the tank. I know this might seem like a close minded post, but speaking of this Houston area, the demand never really changed for the amount of gas bought to warrant the price flying through through the roof, then falling through the floor.

    Cheapest today is 2.29 a gallon. Price is dropping faster than prom panties.

    Gas Price Check...

    It did a bump of +30 cents in the worst parts of town, to a drop within days of the storm. It was 6 day period. The price started dropping in August, and still dropping durring the storm. Only two stations rose higher, and those places the owner admitting to gauging the prices of gas.

    VX: Uh, I think I know there was a hurricane, I went through it. I saw the damage of 100+ MPH wind. HBG: Any fuel injected car can run e85. But be prepared to change plugs and fuel filter real soon if your car isn't a flex fuel model. Best advice, change your plug to a higher heat plug and put on a cotton air filter/air intake if you are going to run on e85 to maximize any MPGs you can get from it. Eric: The price drop was before the global recession, I think the price started free falling with Saudi leaving OPEC.

    NFL Week 8

    1. What kind of changes can we expect from Samurai Mike taking over as the head coach in San Francisco? Maybe an extra win, this team is in one of the easiest divisions and yet finds ways to fuck up an cruise to the playoffs. 2. If Indy loses on Monday, are they in deep shit? Are they in deep shit already? Indy is already in deep shit because the Titians just are not losing. The Jags look like they might wake up and take their wildcard spot. Indy is in a major uphill battle just to get a 1 and done in the playoffs. 3. If Dallas loses this week, are they in deep shit? Are they in deep shit already? Dallas was in deep shit 3 weeks ago when SS Williams and CB Newman went down with injuries. They have like no secondary, the o line looks like shit, Romo is hurt, the running game gets abandon too soon, they are fucked. But they could pull 3 miracles out of their asses and make a run for the playoffs. 4. Will British people (in general) ever give a fuck about the NFL? Can you defend the NFL wanting to play these games overseas? There are like 2 countries that give a shit about American football, and both are next to each other. Instead of playing in England, why not play in LA where people MIGHT GIVE A SHIT ABOUT THE FUCKING GAME! Last year it was the ugliest game I ever saw. Because of the rain, I hope this year its clear skies to make it somewhat worthwhile. 5. What does St. Louis have to do to maintain momentum and keep winning games? What does New England have to do to knock the Rams back down a peg? Rams key to a win is to not make any stupid errors. NE: play Coach Cheater's style of exploiting all weaknesses. Rams could pull another rabbit out of their hat and win 3 in a row.
