    Official Team BEER-FI (Beer Appreciation Thread!)

    Quote: I almost bought some of that once. The packaging caught my eye and I mis-read the price tag... When he rang me up I was floored. That four pack of smallish bottles went back on the shelf. I would still love to try it someday but it's going to have to wait.

    New Forum Complaints

    It's funny. I'm annoyed by just about everything you all are mentioning. The one thing I haven't noticed though is slow-down. Load times seem pretty snappy to me so it must be at least a little platform dependent. Using Windows 7, Firefox 3.6.3.

    Topical Shirt on Woot tonight

    They use American Apparel shirts and I actually do like the quality and feel. Sizing is a little weird but the company makes clothes for hipsters so that's not unexpected. Prints are good quality and will stay true to color if you are smart with how you wash (ie cold water, inside out, etc.).

    Audio T-Shirts

    Believe it or not, Target often has audio related t-shirts that can be pretty cool. I've bought a few of them. And they are usually between 10 and 15 dollars.

    Lady GaGa

    While I do feel that she is part of what's wrong with today's music industry, and most of me wants to hate her... She is talented isn't she? I mean, she appears to be creating a new pop sound that's unique and identifiable. Not to mention her horrible horrible songs are ridiculously catchy and...

    What video game have you beaten the most times?

    Chrono Trigger Easily over 100 times. Every ending many times over for no reason. Loved that game. Second would probably be Final Fantasy VI followed closely by Final Fantasy VII

    some really bad SMD soldering (example)

    I would say it was most definitely not intentional judging from the workmanship on the rest of the board. Also, I can't think of a real reason why you would do that and no I don't think the placement is symmetrical.

    Car Inspection NEWYORKSTATE - help

    I drive a 95' Civic. It has been registered in Orange County NY since 2002 when I bought it. It has never been subjected to an emissions test and it never will be. It regularly passes inspection with flying colors at whatever shop I can get into on a Saturday with no appointment. I don't know...

    How do you choose who gets birthday wishes?

    I've only ever chimed in for Patrick. People like him make the world a more interesting place. Oh, and I'm not popular enough to have ever gotten one. =(

    McDonald's or Subway

    Subway is the lesser of two evils. I eat there at some point at least 4 times a week. Its easy, the cost/calories is pretty good, you can customize and it doesn't taste too bad. The high sodium is starting to get to me though.

    I just happened to watch Ghost the other night too. Sad to see him go.

    iPod artist order

    Wow, I would be really annoyed if my ipod alphabetized The Decemberists under T instead of D as is the proper way to do it... A and The are articles that should be ignored when alphabetizing.

    Best Classic Disney Movie?

    Of that list, definitely Lion King. I guess classic depends on when you were born, but I would put Lion King up against any of those. The fact that the Little Mermaid isn't part of that list though makes a bit off.

    I find The Arcade Fire to be similar to Devotchka.

    Amazon used to be a river.

    Same thing for me. But I've had it bookmarked for my almost daily amazon browsing since sometime in 06'. I kind of forgot about it actually.

    Roddick vs Federer

    I was really pulling for Roddick. After pulling his game back together and getting to this point, I was really hoping he could cap it off with a grand slam win. Especially against Federer. Federer is kind of becoming Roddick's nemesis in the finals... and I kind of hate that guy...
