Comment DUMP IT! (Score 0) 108

If you have it, DUMP IT. If you don't have it, DON'T BUY IT. Once this fad wears out, and/or once the weather changes from summer to WINTER, you think people are going to wander outdoors to play this silly game? Plus, once they have as many on the hook for this fad, you know they will start PUSHING ADS. That will kill it for good. Start playing it, every mile, or certain time frame an ad pops up you have to wait for to finish, before you can continue. It's like a drug dealer setting up in a new neighborhood...start off at a reduced price, get em hooked, then jack up the price.

Comment Don't pay any attention (Score 0) 42

to professional sports. It use to be a "beloved game(s)" Football, baseball etc...gave up on baseball in 94, gave up on football in 95. It's not a TEAM SPORT much anymore, but a group of INDIVIDUALS. Team LOYALTY went out the window. Yeah, I know the career life of a professional sports player can be hampered by injuries, but paying some of these players what they make?

Comment Hillary wins (Score -1, Troll) 180

Stuff the box...the Clinton Mafia will see to that, not to mention her buddy Trump really doesn't want to be president. Give up all his power, wealth? For a job that pays 200k per year? Having the secret service all the time, having to put up with congress? He's even mentioned that if he won, he wonders if he had to actually take it. He's been trying to dump it since the early summer, but "Trumpsters" continue to buy his BS. He only got into it, to make sure a real Conservative didn't get the nod. By being "Trump" and making brash statements, he stole ALL of the spotlight from any real serious candidate.

Comment Space Shuttle TRUCK (Score 0) 236

Worst mistake NASA ever made. The Space Shuttle, as DESIGNED would have been much safer that what actually came about. The biggest issue, was the shuttle DID NOT EXPLORE. We'd just come off the moon program, the F-1 engines in the Saturn V launch vehicle were so damn good, out of all of the flights of the Saturn V (each booster had 5 engines), only ONE failed during flight. Had development continued, we would have explored the moon like we should have, established a "base" for research and could possibly used it as a jumping off point for Mars, but, once we "beat the Russians" to the moon, the public pretty much turned a blind eye to space, dealing with Vietnam, the Watergate scandal and on and on. Nasa took a backseat, and wanted something "exciting". Talks of building a space station, using the shuttle banded about. It's a shame the Apollo program was left to die on the vine, the potential was very good, we'd have a permanent station on the moon now. I was 10 years old when we landed on the moon...just wonder what might have been.

Comment Force them back (Score 1, Informative) 278

Round them up, deport them. If they don't like it? Too bad. The "progressive", "politically correct", types caused all of this problem. The 60's rejects are pretty much running the world these days, and their "I'd like to teach the world to sing/live in harmony" crap just ain't cutting it. I know there are people fleeing those areas of the middle east & Africa that are trying to save themselves, but enough is enough. Unless Europe, and the rest of the world takes a hard line stand, it's going to continue.

Comment NBC? (Score -1) 104

Can't remember the last time I watched something on NBC. Heck, I don't even tune into the local channel on TV. I think the last time I watched something on NBC was back in the 80's. Hill Street Blues, Cheers, St. Elsewhere. Perhaps it was 91, when Johnny Carson retired from the Tonight Show. I might watch 2-3 of the "big 4" network shows per week. Otherwise I watch the oldies channel...MeTV, Antenna/Cozi TV, the old movies channel.
