    IN RESPONSE TO: 5 Guys vs. In-and-Out

    When they first opened around Orlando a few years ago, they were packed. Now they`re not any more crowded than most places, and I usually have my food in 10 mins. It`s that initial "ooo, let`s try something new" thing, and then it goes back to normal.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Terminator Win

    Wow, talk about perfect timing. I had forgotten all about the beginning of the original Terminator until I started watching the Sarah Connor Chronicles recently... so this made perfect sense :)

    One that I found after constant searching is RingRiser. It slowly increases the volume of your incoming calls from mute/vib-only to max volume. At work, I`m in loud places one minute (I supervise a loud machine shop) and in meetings the next, so I constantly forget to change volumes. This lets me kill an incoming call before it disrupts the whole meeting but doesn`t let me miss it if I`m in the shop. My old dumb-phone had this feature built-in, but I couldn`t find it anywhere in the default Nexus One Froyo OS.

    Yeah, I washed/waxed my car this past weekend after 1yr+ of not washing it (which is sad for me, considering I used to wash it once/month). Sadly, it rained today, but it was really cool to see those wax rain beads again -- that made it worth the rain :)

    IN RESPONSE TO: House sends health care overhaul bill to Obama

    Although I don`t think we should be requiring people to get health insurance, if you are capable of getting health insurance and don`t, and you end up in the ER, then tough s**t. Pay or get booted from the ER. Harsh, I know, but if you have the chance and ignore it, then you should pay the price for it and not saddle me with the costs.

    While we`re at it, let`s add in some common sense.

    Have lung cancer and smoked in your life? Tough luck -- gov`t insurance shouldn`t be helping you.

    Overweight and have type II diabetes? Get your weight in control and then we`ll talk about covering you.

    You have skin cancer because you want to sit out in the sun all day to have that perfect tan (and neglect sun screen)? Too bad.

    I don`t want to limit what people can do, but I don`t want to pay for stupidity, either. This is insurance, after all. As part of insurance, you should be assessing self-imposed risks, and everyone`s different, not giving everyone blanket coverage. It costs a lot more to insure a $30k red sports car than a $30k plain-jane volvo, but that`s a self-imposed risk. Same thing should be done with health insurance.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Will Redbox Take California Deeper Into The Red?

    Wow, this is a dumb study. We make things more efficient and cheaper, and now we`re putting people out of a job? Then I guess we should take away computers from everyone, because they`ve eliminated so many wasteful, mind-numbing jobs... they`re a drag on the economy. Or, maybe I should throw baseballs through my neighbors` windows more often, because then that would help the window and glass industries. Because if I got better aim, that would hurt the economy. Dumba**es.

    Great! Thanks for the reminder. It`s always been my fav show, though I have a feeling they`re going to do something cheesy to have Jack magically heal from the bio weapon he was exposed to.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Evening Links

    I agree with BiVRiP... I always thought it should go to Rio for the simple fact that South America has never had the games -- regardless of how good Chicago is.

    But, interestingly, the USOC dropped any bid for the 2018 Winter Olympics (Denver wanted it) to focus on Chicago... good gamble! Now looking at the 2020 Summer Olympics, according to Wikipedia, one bid city from the US is... get this... Birmingham, AL. Really? Wow, the olympics won`t be back in the US for a long time at this rate.

    IN RESPONSE TO: 24

    I`ve been watching 24 since season 1, and I love it. I have to second Dragonlor`s comments about global warming. If I hear "carbon footprint" one more time, I`m going to freak out. What`s weird is that the producers of 24 are relatively conservative/right-wing (for hollywood), yet they let the show promote this global warming bs.

    I`ve heard that this season is supposed to be better than the others because they had a whole extra year to plan for it (Keifer in jail, writers strike). I heard somewhere that this was the first season in which when episode 1 aired, they had already completed episode 24.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Interesting view of Fox

    Even more recently... Fox put a lot of coverage into the the G20 protests.. and that was one city. This tea party was multiple cities. And G# protests happen ALL THE TIME. I even remember Fox calling the G20 protests relatively civil (i.e. for liberal protests like this, that means no buildings were burning).

    Then don`t call them kids... call them little people, dwarves, late bloomers, midgets, gravitationally challenged, or something... just not kids :)

    IN RESPONSE TO: More Links

    In regards to the fast food stuff, I think they made it a law back in the 80`s or 90`s that restaurants couldn`t use plastic/wax replicates to show off food, that they had to use a real piece of food. So all the model burgers in those pics are edible, but they`re prepared by someone earning a lot more money and with a lot more time than who you`ll find making your burger.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Links

    That tax dollars thing is misleading... especially on education, health, and justice. It only talks about FEDERAL tax dollars, when most education dollars come from STATE taxes. Health is kind of the same way -- the states pay for medicaid and many social health programs. Who do you think pays for your state investigators and local police (justice)? Not federal tax dollars. To give you an idea, about 4% of the US GDP is spent on the miliatry. 5.3% is spent on education. I just hate how people try to portary the US as spending tons more on military and completely forgetting education.

    IN RESPONSE TO: What does one trillion dollars look like?

    The whole "wrapping around the globe xxx number of times with one dollar bills" just doesn`t really mean anything to me. Okay, that`s a long distance, but its also just $1 bills. I like how this guy, using the best case of $100 bills, does it (and even 2x stacks `em in the end). It`s a little easier to grasp the size of what Obama just signed.

    IN RESPONSE TO: Plan Would Cut War Spending, Increase Taxes on the Wealthy

    I`m not happy about it, but David Axelrod has a point -- this is exactly what he promised in the election -- this is what the people voted for. Let him do it and then see how much the people want to keep him around.
