That's just idiotic.

Yeah, probably. Hadn't been out for a run in almost a week and needed to just suck it up and do it. Plenty of water huts on the path I use, just too many douches on bikes.

Anyone near the Wheaton area? If you are, and dig going to the movie theaters... check out www.studiomoviegrill.com

They opened one by us about a year ago, and it's pretty awesome. Not gonna lie, the booze can be expensive ($9 for a really good sized margarita, or $4.5 for a domestic bottle of beer). The food isn't bad either, and some things are pretty good. The thing I like about it most is that the service is always awesome and really really fast. They'll have a couple people inside the theater, putting in orders through an iPod or whatever, and then someone from the kitchen/bar will be the one that runs it out. I usually hate going to the movies, but if I can get smashed while we're there I don't mind. Went last night to see Ted, which sucked.

Definitely do it, and buy reserved seating if you can. The only complaint I have is the way they filter people into the theater. You'll wait in a roped off line before, and the theaters don't have a ton of seating given that each row has a bar area in the front, and behind that a small table that seats two behind it. It's $3 extra per ticket for reserve seating, and you can pick out which seats you want online and buy your tickets then. We've never had issues not sitting together or anything, but it can be a madrush for others to get in. Just found a pic of one the seating, at least of how the one by us is...

Don't get me wrong, it had several really really funny moments... but in general, it seemed it was filled more with "pft" laughs, if you know what I mean. Also, I like the stupid mindless humor too, so definitely the target audience. I just thought with the plot idea, the cast, and writers, that it could and should have been way better. Still happy I saw it, but will never bother watching again. That, and they overplayed the pot thing in my book without adding much variety to it and just having the same joke over and over. It was basically an extension of the bad version of Family Guy.

Was picking glass out of my clothes for an hour. Thank christ the steel safety cage held.

Gotcha, makes sense. Thanks for the notes, hoping to see it sometime this week or next weekend.

I like how just about everything on HF gets censored but there are Chicago Exxxotica Expo ads all over the site.

I think these ads are fit to browsing history, so that probably means you're watching too much porn

I get weird ads like that even on my work computer, which obviously I don't look at that stuff on.

Same for me. I don't think those ads are based on your browser history.

Some ads are attested to my browsing history, like Simviation.net or JetBlue, but others are just total WTF.

AdSense, which is the Google Ads division sites such as this one has, are 100% based on your browser history.

Oddly enough, I get a ton of Cubs tix adds here, as I had been looking on Stubhub for tickets for this past Saturday.

Now, your browser history doesn't mean 'I went to such and such and now them in particular are advertising towards me'. Let's take Begulas examples of Billy Boy and Speed Stick. Sure, you haven't visited their sites. You probably haven't visited other sites related to condoms or deodorant. But you have done SOMETHING, anything in your browser history that let's Google and their advertisers know that you are, in fact, a male. And that's all certain companies need to know to gear ads toward you.

I just always get confused when I see ads on Facebook that are supposedly tied to my browsing history, and I get a bunch of Christian dating sites (not really that religious of a person), a black dating site (I'm white), Cubs/Hawks/Illini stuff (makes sense), some anime sites (okay, they've got me there), and the occasional nutritional site (which my fat ass needs though I haven't really looked for).

Like... what are you trying to tell me, Facebook?

Then Facebook isn't doing a good job as I only use it to wish people happy birthdays nowadays and my profile is bare bones since college.

How's this for an outdoor hockey venue.... a freaking Roman colosseum!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pula_Arena

Details are still sketchy, but apparently either the Austrian League or a KHL team based in Croatia will be having two outdoor hockey games at the Pula Arena, which is supposedly the best preserved Roman amphitheater in the world.



ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!?

I was just watching the Andy Griffith Show last night on Me-TV.

I like old-time TV, what a loss, RIP.
