Funny. Laura Ingraham said something similar this morning.

2 I'm sure that's just a coincidence. Trump wouldn't do such a thing just to garner a few extra ratings, would he?

3 Yawn. So what... if it doesn't include dead bodies, my wife won't TIVO it. If it doesn't include food, I won't make her TIVO it.

Martha does have one thing right - the man is a self-promotion machine.

4 All I know, is that 24 is on tonight. Everything else is just white noise.

5 I take it you're talking about a TV show.

Sorry, I have more important things to do, like finding all the little screw-on tips for my body piercing jewelry.

I'm with Carin: I will watch 24 although I suspect they're about to wholly trash Sean Astin's character. Pity, he's the only one in the office without his head up his rump.

6 24.......with a medium rare ribeye and a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon


life is good.

7 We're having pizza here Dave, with hot buffalo wings on the side.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 03:07 PM (qF8q3)

8 Apprentice?!! Hell naw. Jack Bauer main course with Tony on the side.

Posted by: kevlarchick at February 27, 2006 03:09 PM (M8lyz)

9 Tony lost me in Season 3 when he acted like such a wimp. Can't elaborate, Tx Dave might not have watched that part on DVD yet.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 03:14 PM (qF8q3)

10 becks, he'll redeem himself this season, or turn bad. Either way, yummy. He will avenge his wife's death.

Posted by: kevlarchick at February 27, 2006 03:17 PM (M8lyz)

11 mmmmmmm... pizza and terrorist killin! with Buffalo wings!

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 03:17 PM (FrkSZ)

12 White wine, and leftover ribs over here (OBVIOUSLY not at the same time).

I sure hope Jack hurts someone tonight.

Posted by: carin at February 27, 2006 03:19 PM (x889/)

13 aw, Tony's gonna puss out on me?

damn

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 03:20 PM (FrkSZ)

14 becks, he'll redeem himself this season, or turn bad. Either way, yummy. He will avenge his wife's death.

If he recovers from that bomb blast THIS season, that will be even more amazing than the bullet-in-the-neck recovery from Season 3.

But he IS cute, I'll give him that.

And Dave, yah, we're getting Domino's which is the only pizza place that delivers in my neck o' the woods. I'm waiting for Pizza Hut to get out here, that's my favorite.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 03:22 PM (qF8q3)

15 Dave, it's not like that. Don't be hatin' on Tony. You're too much like him.

Posted by: kevlarchick at February 27, 2006 03:23 PM (M8lyz)

16 bbeck, no "Jets Pizza" by you? The best pizza.

Posted by: carin at February 27, 2006 03:24 PM (x889/)

17 aw, Tony's gonna puss out on me?

SORRY, didn't mean to spoil anything.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 03:25 PM (qF8q3)

18 ok, I'll watch and see how it works out. My eldest asked me to hold off until spring break.

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 03:27 PM (FrkSZ)

19 carin, where do you get Jet's Pizza?

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 03:30 PM (FrkSZ)

20 They have them throughout Michigan- I'm in Detroit. They are awesome. Blows away Little Caesars and Dominos- both in price and quality.

Posted by: carin at February 27, 2006 03:33 PM (x889/)

21 Send some to Texas. And Louisiana. I will report back pronto!

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 03:41 PM (FrkSZ)

22 No, no Jet's Pizza here. There's a Johnny's Pizza being built down the road (don't know if they'll deliver) and a couple others in my li'l town that don't deliver at all. Domino's just started delivering here a few months ago.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 03:48 PM (qF8q3)

23 My eldest asked me to hold off until spring break.

Crimeny, Dave, I can't hold off talking about it THAT long. I'll try to post a Spoiler Alert in the future for ya. I figured you'd at least be halfway through the season by now.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 03:50 PM (qF8q3)

24 nah, SB is 2 weeks away here, but if ya have ta say something I'll dodge it, no worries

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 03:53 PM (FrkSZ)

25 Oh okay, SB here isn't until April.

Okay, hubby landed and is on his way home, and 24 is starting real soon. Later...

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 03:55 PM (qF8q3)

26 later kid

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 03:57 PM (FrkSZ)

27 You know, I should have known not to bother with network TV. I'm tired of this season of 24.

If people at CTU actually obeyed the occasional order, the series would be over in half an episode. As it is, they've made this Lynn character out to be a doofus when he's only supposed to be the boss, so evidently it's okay not to obey orders when you don't like who you're working for. Yeah, let's forget the fact that all his subordinates were working behind his back and he knew it...and when they come running to him for a bit of cooperation he justifiably throws it back at 'em. Oh, but HE'S the bad guy?

Strangely, everyone seems to forget the fact that Curtis would be DEAD right now if Lynn hadn't caught the code words Jack used earlier in the season. Is there something I'm missing here?

I really would like to punch Audrey. I really really hope she's a traitor so Jack could off her.

We still don't know who knew Jack was alive.

BTW, how did Lynn get back into CTU without his key card?

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 05:28 PM (qF8q3)

28 He pressed the buzzer on the door.



Ok, I made that up.

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 05:43 PM (FrkSZ)

29 LOL.

Seriously, am I the only one having a problem with this season?

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 05:52 PM (qF8q3)

30 I don't know why they're makin Sean Astin a butthead either.

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 05:56 PM (FrkSZ)

31 Well, the key card thing is going to get Lynn in even more trouble.

Related: I liked the part in the show where Logan was considering his options and he asked if there were any leads on the gas...and he was told there weren't any, so Logan didn't call back the motorcade. UM, if the CTU chicks had been telling Lynn what they were doing, then the prez would have known there WAS a lead and he could have recalled the motorcade.

Aaron kicks terrorist tail. He's the only reason to still watch that show. OH, and I do love Peter Weller, so I'll stick with the show a little longer.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 06:04 PM (qF8q3)

32 Buckaroo Weller.

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 06:06 PM (FrkSZ)

33 "I've been ionized, but I'm okay now."

LOVE that movie.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 06:08 PM (qF8q3)

34 oh you goober I just KNEW you did.

knucklehead.

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 06:14 PM (FrkSZ)

35 Careful, or I'll sic John Worfen on you.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 06:20 PM (qF8q3)

36 dude played a Telecaster. Good enough for me.

and how did the oscillation overthruster work anyhow?

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 06:25 PM (FrkSZ)

37 Laugh while you can, monkey-boy

Posted by: Dr Emilio Lazardo at February 27, 2006 06:32 PM (D2pBz)

38 and how did the oscillation overthruster work anyhow?

The oscillation overthruster made it possible for the lasers to penetrate through to the 8th dimension.

How did it work? Okay, picture a two-dimensional space, like a plane (such as a piece of paper and you're looking down on it). If you rotate it on an axis, it disappears (and turns into a line from your viewpoint, which technically has no length or width)...but it doesn't cease to exist, it just is no longer where it WAS. Now, cube that effect, and you've just traveled to the 8th dimension.

Let me know if I just gave you a headache.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 06:42 PM (qF8q3)

39 do they have those on BUFFs yet?

someone should be working on that.

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 06:47 PM (FrkSZ)

40 Wanted to like Buckaroo Banzai, I really did (we looked forward to it coming out for months), but couldn't stand it. Rewatched it a year ago with the kids - we couldn't finish it. And I love B and C movies. I just don't like A movies trying to artificially generate a B-movie cult following.

Posted by: geoff at February 27, 2006 06:47 PM (vpYuK)

41 and yes, that was dilitium geekazoid.

just one of the things I love about you.

like an older brother. a kind hearted older sibling

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 06:48 PM (FrkSZ)

42 and turns into a line from your viewpoint, which technically has no length or width

Lines have length.

Posted by: Physics Geek at February 27, 2006 06:48 PM (/3kwi)

43 Lines have length.

Maybe she meant that your viewpoint has no length or width.

Posted by: geoff at February 27, 2006 06:50 PM (vpYuK)

44 Well played, Geoff. Well played.

Posted by: Physics Geek at February 27, 2006 06:52 PM (/3kwi)

45 or dilithium.

I don't know why I do this to myself

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 06:55 PM (FrkSZ)

46 Well played, Geoff. Well played.

It's the remnants of my ancient undergraduate physics degree.

Posted by: geoff at February 27, 2006 06:55 PM (vpYuK)

47 Planes rotated on an axis disappear because THEY have no "thickness" (but they would have infinite length, which is moot because the thickness is zero). I was trying to describe an abstract concept with concrete object like a piece of paper, hence the line analogy.

do they have those on BUFFs yet?


Probably, but it's classified and Hubby couldn't tell me.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 06:58 PM (qF8q3)

48 C.S. Lewis described time as something constrained by the physical universe, a piece of paper that extended in all four directions for infinite lengths, and "time" as a one inch line, drawn in the middle of that paper. The beginning of time and the end, in the middle of that infinite expanse.

I didn't really understand it. I'm a duckie and a horsey kind of guy.

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 07:09 PM (FrkSZ)

49 The president in 24 is a jack ass.

Posted by: DDG at February 27, 2006 07:35 PM (/3kwi)

50 I didn't really understand it. I'm a duckie and a horsey kind of guy.

Heh, I'll stick to Lewis' Narnia works.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 07:37 PM (qF8q3)

51 Heh, I'll stick to Lewis' Narnia works.

Some of his other pieces are very accessible. I just finished his "Mere Christianity." Very interesting.

Posted by: DDG at February 27, 2006 07:39 PM (/3kwi)

52 The president in 24 is a jack ass.

Why yes he is. It's pretty sad when the insane First Lady is making more sense than the President is. And whatever happened to that bald adviser guy, Mike? Wasn't he a voice of reason for Palmer in the past?

Sigh. This entire season has too many jerks. It's like they're using several people to fill the role Nina used to fill by herself.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 07:42 PM (qF8q3)

53 Some of his other pieces are very accessible. I just finished his "Mere Christianity." Very interesting.

Yah, I have a set of Lewis' works and that's among them. I just prefer his fantasy stuff.

Posted by: bbeck at February 27, 2006 07:43 PM (qF8q3)

54 even with my 25 year old copies, I had to buy two new sets for both girls.

teenagers.

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 07:47 PM (FrkSZ)

55 Dave, do the girls like them? I ask because I'm facing the prospect (distantly) of teenagers myself.

Posted by: DDG at February 27, 2006 07:49 PM (/3kwi)

56 no worries DDG. Invest in a set.

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 07:54 PM (FrkSZ)

57 It's like they're using several people to fill the role Nina used to fill by herself.

I thought Sean Astin did an admirable job of being a high-level bureaucrat in over his head. All I can say is that it was pretty close to life.

Posted by: DDG at February 27, 2006 07:55 PM (/3kwi)

58 "I ask because I'm facing the prospect (distantly) of teenagers myself."

Gonna start dating again?

(runs away)

Posted by: harrison at February 27, 2006 07:56 PM (ZBys+)

59 LOL.

Just for the record, older women are much more appealing to me now. The thought of dating a teenager makes me cringe.

Posted by: DDG at February 27, 2006 07:58 PM (/3kwi)

60 Dave-
Haven't read it in years but I recall that "The Screwtape Letters" by Lewis was good, too.

Posted by: harrison at February 27, 2006 07:58 PM (ZBys+)

61 I'm reading SL now. It's good. The format is a little boring.

Posted by: DDG at February 27, 2006 08:01 PM (/3kwi)

62 DDG- the thought of dating at all does that for me.
Ah, the laziness of marriage.

Posted by: harrison at February 27, 2006 08:01 PM (ZBys+)

63 DDG, the thought of you dating a teenager in Texas will get you shot. Just being helpful here *L

harrison, read that back in 79. good stuff

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 08:02 PM (FrkSZ)

64 Dave, I'm from Texas. I know the rules.

My wife asked if I want a daughter. I just can't imagine having to carry shredders for 18 years ....

Posted by: DDG at February 27, 2006 08:05 PM (/3kwi)

65 heh.

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 27, 2006 08:11 PM (FrkSZ)

66 Did someone say "Texas?"

I love Texas!



Seriously, what are shredders?

Posted by: Bart at February 27, 2006 08:38 PM (ltDkC)

67 and you've just traveled to the 8th dimension.

Actually, the 8th dimension exists inside of all matter. The theory was that, since an atom has very little matter relative to its volume, a civilization can exist in its empty space. During an explanation of the theory in the movie, someone used the analogy that our universe as we know it is possibly one atom in the fingernail of a much larger person.

The oscillation overthruster allowed Buckaroo Bonzai to open a portal to travel into matter and reach the 8th Dimension.

I was stoned when I saw the movie when it first came out. That *really* helped with the comprehension of it.

Posted by: Steve L. at February 28, 2006 03:38 AM (hpZf2)

68 They used that same "atom in a fingernail" analogy in Animal House

'cept they were all stoned.

Posted by: Dave in Texas at February 28, 2006 04:22 AM (pzen5)

69 Speaking of movies, I just read over at Drudge that Daniel Craig came down with prickly heat after a bad case of sunburn. LOL! The guy's a natural blond, of course he's going to boil like a lobster in the Bahama sun.

AND Craig can't drive a stick shift, so his Astom Martin had to be converted! WTF?!?!? Come ON, I learned how to drive a stick shift in a matter of hours, but I'm sure they spent thousands of dollars on a new transmission for this weenus.

Posted by: bbeck at February 28, 2006 05:00 AM (qF8q3)

70 My eldest girl got the hang of it in a short timeframe... and we have some hills in the neighborhood so it was a bit of a challenge.
