Re: The History Thread

My wife's great uncle Francis Currey passed away yesterday. He was one of 3 living WWII medal of honor recipients. I never met him, but he was badass enough to have a GI Joe figure made after him that he gave to my wife and is now on display in my son's room. His story is incredible. https://en.wiki...

Re: Wife’s TV watching habits

my wife and i's tv taste is pretty similar, but a few weeks ago she mentioned that she was excited that the hills is coming back, and that she found out it's on demand on our cable provider so she was going to binge the old episodes first. i laughed and said "yeah right", but i'll be damne...

Re: Dogs Are Awesome, Yay Dogs!

Just want to appreciate Joanie. A couple days ago me, my wife, and son took her for a walk, and 3 houses away a pit bull got out of the open gate and attacked her. Luckily the dog left the humans alone. It probably only lasted 20 seconds, but it felt like forever. I couldn't get the idiot dog to sto...

Re: Game of Thrones

My feeling immediately after viewing is that this was lazy and predictable writing, and that I hate it. That may change. Dany burning the city down was predictable? Jaime and Cersei dying that way was predictable? Arya retreating instead of trying to kill Cersei was predictable? Greyworm attacking ...

The Dark Side of the Ring series on VICE is excellent, if you haven't seen them yet. Tonight's episode is about Gino Hernandez, and I'm pretty excited for it because I really don't know a whole lot about the guy aside from running across his name a few times. If it's anything like the first 3 episod...

Re: Game of Thrones

It’s pretty hard to bring something this sprawling to a satisfying close. If it was easy, it probably wouldn’t be taking GRRM a decade to write the penultimate book. I think they have done a great job. Online GoT fans are making Star Wars fans look reasonable these days. I had extremely low expecta...
