Just trying to do my part!

(Plus that's along the lines of what I told myself when I wanted to extend my nap before actually going in to the gym this morning! 0

And we can't tell you what you WANT to do. We all know you WANT to go home and be lazy anyway. Suck it up and go to the gym - you'll feel better once you're done...
You said it, not me!

For me it was worth the effort. Verizon and Samsung load up their phones with so much crapware. My phone's quite a bit faster now, and I can now use it as a hotspot for my wifi-only tablet, plus do some CPU tuning for better battery life (my battery life is AWFUL, especially with the 4G running).

Not if you get a Galaxy Nexus. None of those crappy unremovable apps.

Kind of jealous. I just get the occasional nose picker. Then have to try and block out thoughts of Spaulding from Caddy Shack.

I know some of you saw this on my facebook, but this was too cool not to share with the group.



Saw this on my walk back to my office from grabbing lunch. I think if I ever moved away from Boston, this kind of stuff is what I'd miss the most.

Wouldnt a water sealer fix that issue?

Would it still warp even if the moisture cant get inside the wood?

Also arnt women aware when they are in a dress and showing the goods? Isnt that something to be aware of?

Even though I am using the greatest source of information in the history of the universe to ask this question instead of just looking it up myself, can someone up north explain to me the meaning behind the difference of "Canadians" vs "Canadiens."

Is it literally just to tell the team apart from citizens?

Also, if I were from Canada and I met someone from the northern United States, I'd say, "I'm from the real North," like a mother ****ing Wildling.

I know a teacher from around Boston that did some student teaching down South and he got called a "Yankee carpetbagger."

By a 15-year-old.

Amazing.

It's just the French spelling of "Canadians."

The NHL also used to have a team called the New York Americans, but they folded during World War II.

Canadiens is french, Canadians is English.

I wonder what they call the team if those freakin sepratist manage to get their own country?

If that were to happen(which it won't), anyboby got a few green cards to spare?

I am so disappointed by the sanity and logic behind this answer.

FREE BEER FOR WHOMEVER COMES UP WITH THE BEST FAKE REASON!

Also, kudos to whomever can accurately explain why it was "whomever" and not "whoever."

Quote:
When having a closer look at pronouns in general it is obvious that the “basic structure has remained remarkably stable over the late modern English period” (Mair, 2006, p. 140) but this is not unexpected as grammar has undergone a radical restructuring in the late Old English and early Middle English period, mostly in the decline of the nominal case system; after this development the nominal grammar of English had reached a stable state. In earlier times English was a more synthetic language, closer to the systems of its West Germanic linguistic relatives Old High German and Old Dutch- Modern German is an example of a language where the synthetic distinction has not collapsed (though it has been reduced). Incidents like who and whom, where whom forms the object form of who are nowadays remnants of a synthetic language, which have “to sit uneasily in the new radically analytical grammar of Modern English”. (Mair, 2006, p. 141) In consequence, they “got obvious focal points for synchronic variation and diachronic change.” (Mair, 2006, p. 141) As such the distinction was likely to be lost (the pronominal oblique cases are used far more in normal speech) in casual speech ever since the vast majority of case distinctions were lost.
It's the Germans' fault.

Nah, been there done that already. Out of college I was jobless for the most part for almost 2 years. I had my fun, had my self finding adventure, then it was time for the real world. I can't do that again.

1) No one wants to win a free beer?

I don't even know you people anymore.

2) Just made my first lengthy thread on the main board. Don't think I can link to it within forum rules....but you guys should check it out on the NHL talk board.

You might find it interesting....and sad.
