    So many great scenes posted!
  2. EB NFL Pick 'em League (2017)

    I think I did better than all of you by only giving them a 12 point weight
  3. EB NFL Pick 'em League (2017)

    Basically the more confidence you have on a team winning, the higher "weight" you should give it. So for example, I'm pretty confident the Giants will beat the Cowboys, so the Giants gets a 16 weight.

    It's a crazy price, but still less than paying the scalpers for the last one that was retireed. I'm debating selling some of my older sets that have shot up in value to pay for this one.

    I need to sell my old comics and baseball cards. What's funny is that I think the 9 card sleeves and comic sleeves / backings are worth more than the comics and cards themselves

    You have to pay for it? Mine's all free.

    Have you checked the library resources for online stuff? My library offers a subscription to Hoopla, which has a bunch of ebooks, audio books, movies, etc.
  8. EB NFL Pick 'em League (2017)

    I don't really watch football, but I'm in since I actually got my money back last year. $25 is too rich for my blood
  9. Yeah, it wasn't working for me either, but then a co-worker told me to put it in manual mode to raise the ISO level and make the shutter speed faster.
  10. The Automotive Thread

    My rental car last week was a 2016 Focus. It had bluetooth, which was nice since I hadn't brought an AUX cable with me and surprisingly, also had a back-up camera. We managed to fit 2 huge suitcases and a stroller too. Power was weak, but we did get 30 MPG out of it. edit: hatch, not sedan
  11. This is what we got to see in MA
  12. The Automotive Thread

    Too bad the Touareg isn't coming back to the US. My V6 has a 6,600 lb towing capacity. My co-worker has a Nissan Armada that he tows with, but that's a lot bigger than the Pilot. I still have my sedan, and honestly don't feel like it's too small. Obviously, if we're taking a trip to Ikea, the Touareg would be better suited for it, but I pretty much drive the G everywhere else.

    Yep, but at least now, my phone doesn't buzz and the watch is a lot quieter. There are four of us in the "engineering room" and two out of the other three also have smart watches so I'm not too worried about it.
  14. Whatcha Playin?

    Anyone else playing Battlegrounds? My two BIL's have been playing it so I figured I'd join them. It reminds me a lot of SOCOM but with less action.
  15. Happy Birthday Frazil!,

    Happy belated bday! Hope you had a good one!

    My wife got me a Gear S3 for our anniversary. Anyone have a smart watch? I've wanted one for a while, but now that I have it, I don't know what else to do on it. It's cool to read messages and emails from it, and changing out the watch face every day makes it feel like a new watch, but I feel like there's more I should be doing with it. I'm surprised it didn't come with a built in calculator app so that was the first thing I added. Reminded me of my old Casio calculator watch
  17. Happy Birthday Flyer_PE!

  18. Cicada? It was hanging out on the side of my sons' play house until my 3 year old took a branch and swatted it down.
  19. Rotini and vodka sauce with meatballs. Leftovers from dinner.
  20. Movie thread

    I can't wait to go see that. Imax for sure! Sent from my SM-G935T using Tapatalk

    That's what I read on a couple of sites too. They call it loss of use. It's covered in some states, but unfortunately, not in MA (covered in Alaska, Connecticut, Louisiana, Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island and Texas). Visa apparently covers loss of use, but it needs lots of information from the rental car companies, which they don't willingly provide. I'll have to contact them to find out what's covered.
