    This theory doesn't really jibe with Chris coming back to the game though.
    I can't explain why I keep playing. I know I'll never win one, but I keep running into that wall like one day I'll break through.

    So when are we doing the next one? Baseball is over and football only takes so much effort we should be able to do one again.

    Either way I always enjoy coming here. And when I see a new post in the VD forum I'm always anxious to see what it is. Other areas, it's not that way.
    I had heated arguments constantly and was constantly accused of "poisoning the well" in the Sports Bar. Others have simply stepped into my vacated place. The arguments, though, used to have many more participants and a much wider range of opinions expressed and perhaps in a more eloquent manner than now. Maybe that's just rose-colored glasses remembering, though.

    I like the political discussions on RJ, but I agree they are a pale imitation of what they used to be. They are still better than I could find on any other board on the interwebs.

    Hmmm, I don't recall you being in any heated arguments. I remember some El Devil ? Or something like that. He was a piece of work

Little news on what happened, and info is still coming out. Dude killed 2 adults and 2 kids, seemed to have known them. Threw one of the bodies in his car and started driving north. Turned himself in up around Mt Shasta.

    I just took it as a crazy story... I mean, tragic for the families involved, but crazy that it happened about 3 buildings from where I use to live.

    I was playing some WoW last night with some Aussies and told them the story, just as a "how freaky is this?" type of thing, and they were all shocked... like, damn, that's some dark shit. They seemed to have a hard time processing it and it killed the fun mood. I guess I just chalk it up to life in the US, where shit like this is just a curiosity anymore rather than a horrible tragedy. Or maybe I'm just a bit dead inside. Who can tell?

    Why do the police show up so early to protests?





    To beat the crowds.
