And I agree, Rush was fantastic.
I have Wolf of Wall Street on PVR and am looking forward to it.

Lone Survivor: saw the 60 minutes documentary on the real life guy and it made me tune in. I have acquired the yips on War movies ever since Saving private Ryan and I often have to leave the theatre from stress (weird). This one is prettty well done considering its limitations of following a true narrative. some pandering but on balance very intense and suspenseful.

True detective: I only saw the first 15 minutes of the pilot episode before my plane landed and I can tell this one is a home run. Not sure when it will be out on NetFlix

Grudge Match: "because I has seen everything else". Kevin Hart and Alan Arkin were both very funny in the movie.....nice light watching after the other material. Kind of a 5 or 6 out of 10 type.

Rush: is a home run effort about the James Hunt Niki Lauda formula 1 rivalry in the 70's. I am by no means a race car fan but this is a must see movie.
I have never heard of "the yips"

I looked it up and I still don't understand it's use in this instance

You must be old if even I don't get a phrase you are using

HBO shows will never be on netflix since you can watch them if you subscribe to the channel on your on demand channels (in which case it's under Movie Central on demand on MTS)

I can even watch Six Feet Under if I really wanted to.

Brand new, just posted and here it is: The first NHL 15 teaser

I have so much hope in this game. It's not even funny. I will be so disappointed if it's the same game with just a different, prettier look.

looks good. Too bad I don't have a system that'll play it anymore. Loved playing it on PC but they only make it for xbox and playstation and I hate both those systems.

Yea sorry my reference (golf) was a bit Bizarre for this instance but I am not sure how else to describe it....as a boy growing up from my generation watching war movies with my dad and brother was always kind of a big deal....that opening scene from Private Ryan on the beach had an impact on me and I have tended to be hit or miss on being able to make it through war movies ever since and usually I just avoid the category.....the Yips in golf as I understand it is that guys tend to have these physiological reactions that are largely the result of their brain playing tricks on them and it manifests itself in golfers freezing up while standing over top of a put etc. "something that always came easy to them but now their mind is screwing with them on it"

I'm sure that clears it right up

Dang son, you've never heard of the yips?

Mr. Second Language over here knows that expression by heart, and I'm even younger than you are!

HTC thunderbolt on verizon. Some pretty serious and wacky hardware issues at the end.


One drawback with this phone is the speaker does not get very loud before distorting.

Good lord. They're finally replacing the commentary!

Emrick, Olczyk and Ferraro, I'm elated on that change alone.

I feel like poop.


Spring colds suck and especially during the last week of school when you have a huge project due that's worth 40% of a final grade

Computer geeks (errr YWG... this is you)

I can't find a decent design of a grocery store (this is what my big project is on. It's an office manual). What would be the best way to design my own? It'll be basic with where everything is.

They couldn't give anyone with a 360 or PS3 one last NHL with changes like that?

Maybe I'll get a new console for NHL30.

Sorry you are losing me on this are you talking about a footprint architectural design of a grocery store layout? What application are you using it in?

Rrep loans are good for you. Now you can spread the loan out to multiple years, and you can throttle the deduction. Too bad you can't get good rates for a tfsa loan. I tell people to do 50 50 when saving. Depending on situation of course.

General layout of where the departments are. Like this one
I don't know which application to draw it in. I tried in excel but I can't remember how to use it. Can't I just draw it in Word?

Yep, you can use some of the 'Art' tools in Word to do that. It's not specifically made to do that, but it works, and makes it easier to put together a manual if you don't have to transfer graphics back and forth.

Should be on the 'Insert' tab in Word.
