    The US Economy and Current Financial Crisis

    Palin, Jindal and other GOP governors may refuse stimulus money Unfortunately they have nothing to worry about. :angry: This is going to start a cycle of dependency on the federal government by the states because its easier to take the money from the federal government than it is to balance a budget on their own. Though the loophole that was inserted in the bill means that even if the Governors decline it the states can still push it through anyway (a crock of BS).

    I envisioned that as the bear being the car with her and the guy and I cant stop laughing.

    it can also do newspapers and magazines *crickets chirping* The only problem I have with it is that its only backed by Amazon. There are other e-readers available at around the same price point that have more support but they dont have the same features..

    Is it bad enough they're doing a live action/CGI Yogi Bear movie?

    Let's predict 2009's won-lost records.

    No Sunday games scheduled this year? 76-86 is my official prediction, 4th place, better than the Blue Jays at least. If they manage to finish better than that I will be ecstatic.

    NuclearTBD takes back.. Manny Parra, SP real tough decision as I have about 5 guys I kinda want to take, but at least I pick again soon enough that I should get one more of them.

    Simple questions about blu ray players

    1 - Not BR all players have ethernet ports. The majority of them that do have ethernet are profile 2.0 which means the ethernet port is mandatory for BD-Live features as well as upgrades and other features. I think most players allow upgrading via a burned DVD disc but this takes a while. I would definitely get a model with an ethernet port on it for futureproofing yourself. I havent really been blown away by any of the BD Live content yet BUT its almost brand new and will get better. 2 - The quality of the Blu Ray player upscaling is going to be about as good as a mid priced stand alone DVD upscaling player. Mine does a noticeably better job than my older upscaling DVD player. (I chalk it up to my older player not being that great even though I paid almost $200 for it a couple years ago). 3 - Depends on the manufacturer of the player and the disc itself. I have a Sony and Ive probably rented 20 movies already and there are some movies that take longer to load than others, and regular DVDs load like normal. I think the longest wait Ive had was maybe a minute or so but the disc had a neat loading animation screen so it wasn't that bad The longer load times are usually the discs that use java aps more in the special features. Firmware can be updated to speed the process up some, but its still going to be slower than DVD unless you get a PS3 for your blu ray player which is much faster than regular stand alone players due to the CPU used in it.

    Alex Rodriguez tested positive for steroids in 2003

    I like how he was young and stupid back in 2003 when he was 26 trying to make it sound like he was 19 or 20. Im willing to bet he was doing roids all the way back when he was playing with Seattle.

    Ive only got 1 or maybe 2 open keeper slots for next year barring a catastrophe so I really am not picking players for performance in 2010 and beyond, other than maybe a pitcher later. Im probably not gonna keep Duchsherer and Nathan I could keep but even though hes a top 3 closer and his stats have been consistant for the last few years, you never know with closers. I can't forsee not keeping Tex/Braun/McCann though. I could keep Gonzalez with a 3rd round pick but if Tex keeps his numbers up and I have someone else lower that I could replace him with then I might do that, but Im still quite happy about having 2 top tier 1B.

    The 2009 NFL Offseason

    Chris McCalister is no longer a Baltimore Raven He was a really great CB but it was more his attitude towards Harbaugh than his injury that cost him last season and his job in baltimore..

    WWE Raw - February 16, 2009

    An evil plan designed by HHH from the start to off the McMahons one by one so he can take control of the company! The only person that would be left to punt is Shane's wife. Maybe Orton can trick them into holding a fake McMahon family reunion next week on RAW with Ed and Jim showing up, as well as Linda and Shane's Wife..so he can punt them all for good measure just to be sure.

    WWE Raw - February 16, 2009

    Yeah, I mean, all that has to happen now for HHH to be in charge is for Linda to be out of the picture...he should be happy that Orton did him a favor here.
