Didn't see this yesterday, but this has been happening a lot this year for some reason. The "future" in the series was actually 2015. All of the years in the movie have a 5 at the end. 1885-1955-1985-2015 are the years shown in the series.
The new timer... we went from going to the future and advancing mankind (sure it was a mvie) to seeing how much we can stuff down our guts.... kind of sad too. Yes Amy, the croc is probablly from 100 to 150 years old. That even makes me feel old ... cr****
I have been there done that with a lot of things but I would make a terrible reviewer of anything. Done a lot of teq, from cheap to some of the best. I could never write a review like this. I would just say, "Wow, that's pretty fucking good." Oh well..... cr****
Partida Reposado NOM 1454 Tasted 6/20/07 at 8pm. On this date I tried this tequila at Grad Tequila Bar using a snifter. This tequila is a pale yellow golden color and has an intense aroma of floral and fruit with mild earth and spice. There are also hints of vanilla. A mellow taste on the tip of the tongue leads to a sweet sensation with a slight bitterness. The Reposado flavor contains intense agave and floral flavors with moderate earth and fruit. The tequila also has mild intensities of spice followed by a hint wood. Partida Reposado finishes with a medium to long duration of flavor and a tingly, numbing alcohol feeling. This tequila has been awarded the overall rating of 88/89 points out of 100.
Quiet and Nice have pretty godawful taste, though. I wouldn't hang my laurels on their approval.
Trust me, I really don't care what 99 percent of the world cares about me or not. It just gives TomAz something to whine and complain about. It's my cross to bear : Not sure which of us owes another one a beer next spring.... cr****
All of my old friends (sic) are here. All joking aside, it will be nice to meet all of you guys after being on the board for 5 plus years. You will be some what surprised. I am going on my "Will you still love me when I'm 64 tour " but I don't feel that I am that old. The Bridge concert will be the first show, on my birthday no less.
On a side note: What is up with the greyed area on the reply option sometimes and you can't reply? I thought it might be a restriction put in so you can't just talk to yourself on a thread......cr****
What's more, Britton noted, the 2,370-pound (1,075-kilogram) Lolong may have a sizable impact on crocodile conservation in the Philippines.
For instance, the Philippine Senate recently introduced a resolution to strengthen laws protecting the saltwater crocodile and the Philippine crocodile, a species deemed critically endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
Well, you definitely won't see me. If I wind up going, it'll be the second weekend. I liked the crowd there last year and the bands almost uniformly mentioned how much smoother things went.
That makes sense to me. Someone pm'ed me and said most people go the first week. Maybe it was a trick .... I just hope for either week for tics because I won't pay scalper prices. Just saying ... cr****
What a nice day. Fall and all of that. I just saw someone on tv make a meatloaf that was one half chuck and one half BACON. Yikes it did sound good. I should do something constructive today. It's really odd waking up and having to do nothing and owe no one my time of day. Interesting and still not used to it. cr****
CHICAGO -- A joke by the satirical newspaper The Onion appears to have gotten lost in translation.
An Iranian news agency picked up -- as fact -- a story from the paper about a supposed survey showing an overwhelming majority of rural white Americans would rather vote for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than President Barack Obama. But it was made up, like everything in the just-for-laughs newspaper, which is headquartered in Chicago.
The English-language service of Iran's semiofficial Fars news agency republished the story Friday, several days after it appeared in The Onion.
The Iranian version copied the original word-for-word, even including a made-up quote from a fictional West Virginia resident who says he'd rather go to a baseball game with Ahmadinejad because "he takes national defense seriously, and he'd never let some gay protesters tell him how to run his country like Obama does."
Homosexual acts are punishable by death in Iran, and Ahmadinejad famously said during a 2007 appearance at Columbia University that "in Iran we don't have homosexuals like in your country."
The Iranian version of the article leaves out only The Onion's description of Ahmadinejad as "a man who has repeatedly denied the Holocaust and has had numerous political prisoners executed."
The article was featured prominently on the Fars website alongside its usual fare of stories about advances in Iranian military technology, condemnation of Israel and Iran's nuclear program. The story appeared to have been taken down by about mid-day, Chicago time.
Calls to Fars representatives were not answered Friday.
The Onion reveled in the fact that it had been taken seriously.
Onion editor Will Tracy put out a tongue-in-cheek statement that referred to Fars as "a subsidiary of The Onion" that has acted as the paper's Middle Eastern bureau since it was founded in the mid-1980s by Onion publisher T. Herman Zweibel.
"The Onion freely shares content with Fars and commends the journalists at Iran's Finest News Source on their superb reportage," Tracy said in jest.
It's not the first time a foreign news outlet has been duped by The Onion. In 2002, the Beijing Evening News, one of the Chinese capital's biggest newspapers, picked up a story from The Onion that claimed members of Congress were threatening to leave Washington unless the building underwent a makeover that included more bathrooms and a retractable dome.
