Anyone else love these "Harlem Shakes"? I have no idea why it started, but they're hilarious.
The Scott Bakula and Sinbad college football movie?
The Harlem Shakes videos for some reason do make me oddly mesmerized.
Watched The Following first episode and holy shit does that show move fast. Episode one was like a freaking movie and 1000 things happened. One thing that irked me with the show is can we get past the cop with problems storyline?? Yes Kevin Bacon was fired, he's messed up, he has demons, he has a drinking problem blah blah blah. Show looks good though and my wife bought in and she normally doesn't like those kinds of shows.
House of cards is good. I would say not spectacular but a good solid show. Nobody in the show is likeable and I really hate the damn reporter. I'm only like four episodes in but the reporter... is she supposed to be hot?? Because she most definitely is not. And I'll admit it took me a while to get past the wife having a lesbo haircut. But the show is pretty much dirty politics to the max.
Does your mom know you're gay?
Pics so I can be final judge.
Real life hot... sure but she's a freaking actress. A real life 8 is like hollywood 5. Give me some knockout and the storyline would be more believable.
dammit... this is what she looks like most of the show. Trying to link a better "hotter" pic

ok, site was kicking my ass. Anyway I think they're there you be the judge.
Welp I'm gay then... that chick does nothing for me. I think she has the ears of a dwarf and looks like a 14 year old tom boy. And if this chick can be hot the show most definitely doesn't take advantage of it.
She's def hot. (Let's see if these post, having some troubles).

Did you and EJB lose a sig bet for PSU not finishing in top 25 or something? How long do we have to look at that signature?
"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
Why didn't I think of that?
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain't come to play SCHOOL, classes are POINTLESS
I have like three more episodes to go through, something like that. I found it at the worst possible time with midterms coming up. Its just so good though, I can't NOT watch it.
Show is crazy though. Hopefully it doesn't take a year for the new ones to come out. It may lose its buzz by then.
I never really found Community funny, but my old roommates loved it. To each their own I guess.
I'm watching Mighty Ducks. The Hawks coach popping his collar has to be the best sports movie villain move of all time.
Watched it on DVR to detox. Amazing as always. Banks is the man.
Why don't they show it more often? It beats the hell out of most of the crap movies that they show consistently.
Yep. When I first saw it I was like "He could have lost, and he was still ballsy enough to do it." Kid was awesome.
I have a strong distaste for Esquire and their hack job on PSU/Joe, but this is a great story.
It is long at like 15,000 words, but definitely worth the read when you have some time to read and digest the story. Some humor, sadness, anger, happiness, surprises, and so forth.
Osama bin Laden's shooter is an American hero, and the way the U.S. government treats him and their most accomplished veterans needs to change
So i read some of it but the one question I have is why didn't he just wait the extra three years or whatever it was and receive his full pension and benefits?? I know these guys operate differently than normal human beings but technically wasn't his career "mission" to serve 20 years and that is what was required and he fell short and didn't complete the "mission". I'm sorry this man is a Hero but I think the part that is getting overlooked is he quit. I have a hard time feeling sorry for someone that knows what the requirements were and quit knowing the consequences then bitches about the consequences.
Don't want to sound like a hard ass or that I'm ungrateful because I am. I just think the story about this guy is a bit misleading.
I like how you are jumping to conclusions (sound familiar) before even reading the whole story. He "quit?" Are you serious? Read the whole story. It explains it all.
It is easy for us civilians to sit here and say we'd do this...But these Seals can only take so much. Imagine having to say goodbye to your kids/family and be almost 100% sure you will never see them again, week after week, year after year.
I dont know much about Seals, but I have never heard that your career "mission" is you must stay in the military for 20 years. I dont think it is required to serve 20 years to finish your career "mission." You can sign up and serve however many years. Yes, 20 years to receive the benefits, but even then they are a joke. A Navy SEAL is much different than a Navy Choirboy. Fact is, even if you do make it 20 years, veterans have a tough time adjusting and its another problem that needs to be dealt with.
To say that this guy "quit" is such a joke of a statement. Read the freaking story before you pass judgement on this guy and saying he "quit." Pathetic. Sorry it just gets me steamed when people say shit and dont know what they are talking about or act like they'd do this or that...We've heard it since Nov. 2011.

Also, serving 20 years and never seeing battle is much different than being the life force on the ground for multiple missions of the longest running American war in history. Called one for the toughest missions day after day.
Heck, people quit their civilian jobs because they "dont like it." So any military member, especially an active Navy SEAL who doesnt serve 20 years is a "quitter?"
Actually the other dude didn't even need to wager more. He bet $7k and lost it to finish with $26.4k. If he simply got it correct, he would've finished with $40.4k and won. I assume he chose to wager $7k for that exact reason.
Ok quit was maybe too strong of a word, but the main argument I was trying make was he didn't fulfill his time commitment. He didn't. And he didn't stay on as a reservist or the other role mentioned to receive benefits. There was a deal and he completely 100% backed out. Should he get nothing? Probably not, but he knew the terms. I know he went through unspeakable things and continuing on would be hard but he knew when he left the military this was the outcome and he shouldn't be bitching about it.
And I think this Esquire piece is a hackjob. They deliberately left out the part that he could have gotten benefits if he would have stayed in a part time role. And when it was eventually incuded it was included in the very end.
