    Pot meet Kettle

    How does that work? A lesbo turned on by a gay dude. I dare say she is confused.
  2. My Physics 1 prof said that if you don't like something in that course or at least find it interesting, you need to be something other than an engineer. That probably wouldn't apply to chemical though. Dont feel bad about not fully comprehending some courses though. I never did understand Calc 2, electromagnetics or signals and I graduated with a 3.8 EE.

    Movie thread

    Quiet Place: The wife, I and our 14 year old loved it. Probably too scary for the 9 yr old though. Nice to watch something that wasn't a sucky sequel for a change. Dr. Strange: MEH. Another Marvel movie Transformers: The Last Knight: I watched this for the boys sake. The dialog was horrible, the plot was all over the place and of course they set it up for yet another movie. I pray it doesnt get funded.

    Countdown to Star Wars

    #metoo. I loved the originals. Tolerated the 2nd 3, but hate 7 and 8. I can't help but see the similarities between these and the originals. Its like they are telling the same story again with better graphics and worse acting. Put some effort into this guys. I know they don't have to in order to make a half billion dollars, but it would be nice if they at least tried to veer from what has already been done. That said, Rogue One was pretty darn good. I waited several months to see 8, havent seen Solo yet and am not even interested in seeing whatever vomit they are going to spew out for 9.

    Who here rides motorcycles?

    Had a Prowler Yellow Suzuki GS 500 many moons ago. I think about getting another bike again every now and then, but all the negatives outweigh the few positives i can come up with.

    How You Met Your Kids' Mother

    Kindergarten. We grew up together. She beat me up on the trampoline. I destroyed her mud pies. Sang Happy Birthday to her on her 16th in front of the school. Got married as teenagers. That was 3 bouncing baby boys and 18 years ago this month and still having a great time.
  7. Going to Hatgal, Mogolia in June on a mission trip. I think the longest flight is 13 hrs to Bejing. We are taking 15 guys for a couple of weeks to finishout a church/school. The last leg of the trip is going to be on a bus for the ones that don't fit in the puddle jumper. Not sure who will have it worse.
  8. Were watching this too. The boys love it and its good enough me and mom enjoy it too. Yea dr smith is a bit over the top but its playing to a younger audience i think. The boys hate her and almost cried on the cliff scene.

    If you were to die today........

    I am. Thanks for asking. Hoping all of you are too.
  11. Kid friendly stuff is getting very hard to come by. We are giving this a shot. Have only seen a couple episodes and No its not as good as the movie. NPH does suck. Hoping it gets better. Otherwise, back to Planet Earth.

    Movie thread

    I didn't have high expectations for the Cloverfield Paradox, but it was not bad at all. The ending was sort of unconventional, but I liked it for no other reason than they didn't tie it up with a bow like so many movies do..

    The Running Thread

    I enjoy lifting, but the wife loved to run until her knee blewout. I bought her a SOLE F63 treadmill for her birthday this week. Fast walking doesn' hurt but any kind of impact or stress on the knee is a nogo.

    Winter Olympics 2018

    We have found that our collective attention span for a single olympic event is 6 minutes or 8 runs of the same "1440 double backy side sweepy front grab". After 4-5 of anything they all seem to look alike. Now, I can watch short track for an hour, but noone else cares about it.
