Especially band boards where the general view is that the singer can do no wrong (I'm looking at you springsteen fans)


On the Mike Portnoy forums, it can be really hard to have ANY negative opinion because Portnoy himself posts there, and while he's pretty cool about differing opinions, his fanboys get hyperprotective of him, and the lead mod has a fork up his arse sometimes.

I ended up having a row to myself on the final leg, while downstairs it was packed.
They only seem to know about the F and J (First and Business class, i think) seats.

Of course, if you have money to chuck away to post on forums you probably aren't flying economy.

That image is coming back unavailable, I didn't know you'd posted one until I quoted you thinking you'd just agreed with me.

And their screen name is Jose so I doubt they are a hot babe.

That's a shame. But it's the one of Bono talking to those girls in bikinis on the beach.

There is this clique of guys who admittedly know their shit about public transportation, but they look down on anybody else. Especially anybody visibly enthusiastic about something.

Then there is this one guy from South Australia who I'm pretty sure must be a freight train driver, as he seems to get personally offended by how much discussion there is about improving passenger services compared to freight, and he does his best to obnoxiously remind everyone that freight is apparently the sole reason any railway in Australia exists.

I dunno if it was that forum or another one that came up on google where I got the coach advice but it was good stuff.

I'm flying Lufthansa in 3 weeks on my way to Bosnia (and then Adriatic or something, the Slovenian one), any recommendations for seats on whatever they fly BOS-Frankfurt?

(I flew that flight once before actually but it was over 4 years ago)

I got sued by the RIAA last year (luckily it seems they dropped the suit *knock on wood*) so now I'm terrified to download anything. Streams all the way

Maybe the cable that goes through the center of the earth from your side to my side got twisted so I can't see it.

OK, def. back to work. How the HELL did I let myself post 125 times in the last thread with all this work?

I'll go ahead and embarrass myself:

The Meat Loaf board I posted on for a week I could not take because you could not even speculate about what Meat Loaf eats for Breakfast without people jumping all over you about why you need to know so much about his life, or why does it matter, it's none of your business. It was bad.

And Meat Loaf on occasion posted on that board as well


Hides out here >

HOLY SHIT.

I mean, I've heard of people being sued by the RIAA, but it's always seemed to just be random person in a million in the news and it'd never happen to anybody I even vaguely know.

I'm just waiting for the day somebody totally owns the RIAA by counter-suing them, getting the RIAA's case thrown out, and winning their counter claim. It'll happen. The RIAA's just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic right now.

I have gotten two MPAA warnings, one from Paramount 3.5 years ago and one from HBO a few months ago. Luckily nothing further. But that was all before I started using Peer Guardian 2 which you should def. know about, it blocks the IPs from the MPAA and RIAA, also, use Bit Torrent but NEVER EVER limewire. And I do still stay away from movies and HBO shows, as they are the ones that warn, but network TV hasn't warned or sued anyone yet. I had my school network that was safe to get movies, now that it's gone (or rather I'm gone) I've got a TON on my hard drive stocked up, and my employer for next year goes to asia all the time and picks up bootlegs so I should be OK for a while. Plus I love marathoning TV, I've got Battlestar Gallactica and Homicide LIfe on the Street that I've never watched, and I want to re-do all of West Wing and The Wire some time.
