  1. I missed the great movies part and was more focused on the differences in adaptation. I would still suggest reading them though. lol (though I didn't hate the movie)
  2. I, Robot if you are OK with it being a collection of short stories.
  3. I'm stuck paying $65/month for shitty verizon dsl. I would kill for 10 down.
  4. Context matters. You've heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other. But I don't know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket. Prevention, prevention, prevention—it's about diet, not diabetes. It's going to be very, very exciting. But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy. poor choice of words I guess, but it's rather obvious what she was trying to say.
  5. Mostly physical. I bought a digital copy of Zelda that took about 13 hours to download because my Internet is trash.
  6. I picked one up at the Target in Poughkeepsie about an hour ago. They had 4 in stock that were all immediately purchased. The poor lady at the counter took at least 4 phone calls in the time it took me to finish my transaction, all asking about availability.
  7. That really takes me back. I used to have all of those and all of the die cast ships too. I had the speeder bike and Jaba set as well.
  8. When you go over a decade without losing your division, with three hall of fame pitchers in there prime, and only win one world series you learn to temper your expectations. Atlanta fans are probably better equipped to deal with this kind of loss than anyone. I'm already over it.
  9. The most gutless second half in nfl history. Of course it comes from the Falcons.
  10. As a lifelong Atlanta sports fan I'll never be happy with a half time lead.
  11. Indeed. Lucky for her, and her advisor, they've incorporated some machine learning into their outbreak models. This caught the eye of IBM, and they have at least sponsored some of their work. But there are a countless number of smaller projects that will inevitably never see the light of day because people, in general, lack any sort of vision, and can't see how saving a few frog species from fungal infections matters. All they see are shrimp treadmills.
  12. Her end game was a job at the CDC. Her stress level is off the charts. She feels like she went to college for 10 years for nothing. She pursued a degree that she thought would benefit society, and now feels cast off. Most of her peers feel the same way. It's really sad...
  13. My wife is a disease ecologist who's livelihood relies on NIH/NSF grants for employment. Most of her cohort does as well. They are all terrified.
  14. She doesn't though. And even if she did, what difference does it make? The tone and message of the march, at least in NYC, couldn't have been less in line sharia law.
