I've always thought that 16'' was closer to baseball than 12'' in my experience playing both.

Yes, you're not using a glove so on the surface it might look like 12 is more like baseball. But so many in a 12'' game can mash. Defensively, 16'' feels more like baseball. Guys hit choppers and hot shots to 3rd. Everyone in 12'' either drives the ball or at the very least hits it up the middle, rendering corner IFs useless.

Its a less strenuous baseball IMO. Most of the things you loved about playing baseball but more laid back.

I'll keep that in mind. Don't know the rate I'll get quite yet, but as I work for a title company I think I have an insider's edge on getting a good deal. Thanks, though..

And in more pathetic news, the girl I'm crazy about, and who knows I'm crazy about her, tried to set me up with a friend of her's last night.

She's been inconsiderate plenty of times in the past, but this is the first majorly ***** move on her part. Honestly still a bit stunned that she tried to pull that so non-nonchalantly. Pretty obvious indicator of her feelings, or lack thereof, though, so at least there's that....

I have been reading his reviews since I was kid

Dont agree with his hate for alot of horror but generally find many of his reviews to be about on par with my thoughts on many movies

Best wishes for Ebert. I used to watch Siskel and Ebert with my dad as a kid.

I don't always agree with him, but I loved reading his reviews anyway

That's exactly what it is. They are all talk, but it's a shame we can't do something small to tell them that you don't toss around nuclear war for fun without starting something much bigger.

If what I've read is correct they don't even have any nukes. They have a mothballed plutonium program that they're threatening to reopen. Serious threats, no less, and the US is reacting accordingly. But they have nothing to drop today even if they really wanted to. Still a very unstable government there, to say the least.

Bombing the capital city would not cost billions.

They can't reach Hawaii currently. I was talking more about the starvation conditions and labor camps.

It would kill a ton of innocent people, an act not to be taken lightly.

Yeah, it's their own damn fault that's going on. It's not the people's fault who are suffering, though. And although they are brainwashed by their insane government there, they want me dead. If something drastic does happen some point down the road, I'd rather have them die than me.

You're confusing fear with loyalty.

Lol NK won't do anything. Russia is the only other country that can compete with the US in terms of nuclear weapons. Other countries like the UK, France, China, etc. have them, but it's insane how many the US and Russia have. NK could be wiped off the map in a matter of hours.
