Man Shot To Death For Texting During Movie

Lectoid Re:It's about time! (1431 comments)

I was taught in my concealed weapons class to only defend yourself (and likely anyone under your care). If you can, always retreat.

No doubt. My 3 year old son took a break from programing a calculus game for a new phone invented to read some of the comments and agrees with you. Can't stand that shit.

Why Your Dad's 30-Year-Old Stereo Sounds Better Than Yours

Lectoid Re:Paradigm (674 comments)

I'll see your Paradigms and raise you my B&W's. I was the only kid in college with respectable speakers. I had (still have) some Paradigm Titan bookshelf speakers that blew away what most others had.

Lectoid Re:Bueller? Bueller? (363 comments)

I don't remember where he was when that happened. But I don't see faking sick when you're at a cubs game, or screaming down the road in a 1961 Ferrari 250GT California.
