    BP Oil Catastrophe

    Funny, after reading most of these posts, how misinformed most of the world public is. I am actually on a platform in the Gulf of Mexico as I type. When I first joined this industry I was as disillusioned as some of you are, but let me tell you folks, the misconception that the folks that work...

    Question about NFL from a Kiwi

    Running up the score like that happens sometimes...Most teams, when they have a lead like that tend to replace 1st string/veteran players with new players to get their feet wet and get them playing time. I think NE/Tom Brady is trying to make a statement and one that I hope Indy squashes this...

    Advice for Fiancee

    Well, I did not have to try to hard...I got her a bike and she started pedaling with me and I think the sensation of freedom got her but I am not quite convinced that it has truly got hold. Yesterday we were taking care of my niece and nephew and I suggested that we ride independantly so we...

    Advice for Fiancee

    I have been riding for several years and I am slowly introducing my fiancee to it and she really seems to enjoy it. I do not want to scare her off with too much "training" but would love her to progress to the point where she is comfortable riding by herself. My enjoyment in cycling has always...

    British Say US Is Violent, Money-Hungry, Uncultured Nation

    "Uncaring" I think that there are is a pretty good percentage of people in this country that only think of themselves. But there are a lot of folks that give a lot. Posting stats about how much "per capita" money Americans give abroad and how low it is in comparison to other much smaller...

    Something a little different: What degree do you have?

    I think a better title for this thread is "what degree's do you have and have you ever or do you still use them?"

    Is modern medical science / genetics really this good?

    That is a pretty amazing experience Pro. I don't doubt that the dog made the recovery. Sometimes injuries look much worse than they really are. When I was 8 years old I was attacked by a German Shepard and it bit into my cheek and tore the skin away down to the bone. You could see muscle as...

    What is Lance Armstrong's Game?

    It is funny how in this day and age no one can achieve anything of any notoriety and and have it just be so. Everyone asks: Where are the drugs, Where is the money, Who do they know...etc. I for one am clinging to the fact that Lance is Truely Genuine in both his accomplishments and his...

    Who loves ya baby

    It is funny that you bring this up. I was thinking about my father's funeral the other day myself and remember the hundreds of people that came through to pay their respects. We had to delay the burial because people just kept coming. Sometimes people feel very insignificant and...

    Your favourite music video of all time

    I am actually quite fond of the Peez people video...NOT!!!! I would have to actually say that the video for the hit Mudvayne song "Happy" is pretty fricking awesome. The animation studio that did the tornado segments is the same company that did the tornado scenes from the movie "Twister"...

    Long time no talk!!!

    Hey folks it has been a few months since I last posted. Life here in the big easy has been pretty hard. I usually work about 50 to 60 hours a week doing de-construction during the day, bartending at night and re-building my mortgage company in between. I have to be honest I have only been on...

    Will Israel Strike First?

    Your knowledge of Military aircraft and tactics is slightly scewed. Israel WILL attack Iran if they go nuclear for one very simple reason...They have already done it once before. In 1981, just before it went operational, Israel sent 6 F-16's and 6 F-15's to Iraq to take out the "nuclear power...
