  1. :w00t: :lol: What a coincidence! I made the reference to Tim Connolly with regard to LeBron James right before you posted, and then you mentioned what I bolded. Not a complaint. Just an observation.
  2. Plus, there are so many different facets to Law itself. Obviously, the most ubiquitous is that of trial lawyers like the ones we see peddling their wares during every televised Sabres game. There's also family law, criminal law, and one that I didn't know existed until I bought my house: real estate law.
  3. Could it be that he's overrated like Tim Connolly?
  4. :lol: Nice little tongue in cheek. At least you picked up on my avatar right away. Can't say the same for Lazarus Long aka PASabreFan.
  5. Admit it: your old age is catching up with you, Mr. Lazarus Long.
  6. I guess it would be nice if you could work for someone who would allow you to take Master's degree classes on the side.
  7. On the lighter side, it never ceases to amaze me at what people will do for fame. On a more serious note, It just blows my mind how a seminary president would lie about his past in order to make himself sound like a "credible expert". (If any of you know about this, it's about to get really ugly in Central Virginia).
  8. My complaint: Facebook. I am sick and tired of all of the "technical shenanigans" that appear to be taking place there. Besides, given that Mark Zuckerberg appears to be ethically challenged, why should I trust any of my information to someone or a website that might as well be a snitch site? I am currently in the process of gutting my account, looking to keep in touch with friends via email, and deleting it once all of this is done - never to return there.
  9. Ok, I know most of you could careless about what goes on in churches, but I have to vent. Since when does a self-proclaimed pastor listen to Guns N Roses?
  10. What?! No French Connection highlights? You've gotta be kidding me! :cry:
  11. The more I drive through big megacities like Chicago, Atlanta, DC, St Louis, and Kansas City, the more I actually appreciate going through WNY when I get a chance. :thumbsup:
  12. BINGO!!! There is a very clear difference between formal debates and informal conversations. If anyone follows formal debates, they would know that there is a certain structure to them in order that each party is given equal time for opening statements, question and answer, rebuttal, and closing statements. I know this from listening to podcasts of one of my favorite theologians (hold the rotten tomatoes, please). This guy does formal debates as part of his ministry. Just coming up to someone on the street and engaging in informal (and sometimes vitriolic) dialogue and rhetoric does not pass for a real debate. I only wish I had understood this between 5-20 years ago.
  13. Shippers and/or consignees who take forever and a day just to get my trailer loaded/unloaded and who don't even bother to pay detention fees to my company for holding up progress. (Anyone out there who's a trucker or who has done it in the past knows what I'm talking about.) As the old saying goes in the trucking industry, "If the wheels aren't turning, I'm not making any money."
  14. That's usually how it goes (but not always). <_< Runs right up there with, "He/she is no longer employed by us" = "We fired him/her." Don't you just love political correctness in this instance?
  15. 1, It depends on the women you come into contact with. Some of them can be the most pleasant ladies out there when it comes to normal everyday circumstances. Then there are those who just have some of the worst attitude problems out there. I look at it this way: some women probably feel the same way about us men. In that regard, I would be very careful on where we shoot our "tracer bullets" because as the old saying goes in Murphy's Laws of Combat, "Tracers work both ways," and I'm sure that some women would say that based on a few bad experiences with men, they probably feel that ALL men are like that. 2, Who are you keeping company with? That might be a part of the problem. I'm not saying that it definitely is, but I guess it may all be a matter of perception. Oh, one last thing: not a complaint this time, but happy belated St. Patrick's Day to everyone on the board! :)
  16. True, but the reason why I went to you in the first place is that you started this thread. No worries, though. If the thread never gets opened on a particular Thursday, it's not the end of the world for all of us here. We'll just wait for the next one.
  17. That makes at least two of us. First time, I wrote to Blue asking him to open it up a few weeks ago. After that, I just let it go.
  18. You don't know spndnchz that well at all. I'm still trying to figure out what makes her tick.
  19. Once I read that last sentence, I knew it was a plug for Bill Engvall. Well played, chz! Well played...
  20. :bag: I must have missed the "opinion" part. My apologies. As for the gun issue, look at it this way: when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. If that happens, I think I may move to Finland.
  21. Do we have any anglers on this thread? You'll have plenty to complain about once you read this.
  22. Well, I hate to do this, but in their defense, part of those prices go to pay the salaries of literally everyone involved in the production of the movie - right down to the Best Boy, the Key Grip, and the "We Hate America" actors. Having said that, I am going to segue into this week's complaint: I got word from the Wretched Radio podcast late last week that the Huffington Post now has a religion section. I don't know how long it's been there, but that is immaterial. From all the names I've read that are listed as contributors, there is not one conservative listed that I know of. However, there are some high-profile "Liberation Theology" types who post on there. Thus, when I heard this and checked it out for myself, I realized that there's no point it wasting any more of my time on something that obviously seems to believe that salvation is only attainable by their talking about good deeds and that government and humanity is the cure and not part of the problem.
