    Best or Most Fun Games for the 3DS?

    Give me your thoughts, guys. My fiancee hinted that she wants a 3DS, and I'd really like to get her one (probably a 3DS XL) for the holiday, even if it has to be a late gift. But I want to choose a couple of decent games to package it with for her. Any suggestions? She doesn't have a whole lot...

    Red Bull Stratos - 120,000 ft skydive LIVE. This is absolutely amazing. This guy is going to skydive from the edge of space, breaking the sound barrier in free-fall from the largest balloon ever used by a human being to ascend into the stratosphere. Insanity!

    TRMK technophiles, school me on 4G wireless carriers!

    Here's the skinny, glamorous and lovely folks of TRMK; I've had AT&T for five years and I'm dead tired of them. Their coverage sucks, they drop calls, and their networks is slow. I'm looking at switching myself and my fiancee to either Verizon Wireless or T-Mobile. What we're looking at...

    Otherwise known as the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011, the bill will significantly curtail the ability of people to voice protest or otherwise 'disrupt' federal events where the U.S. Secret Service has an interest (presidential candidate rallies, summits...

    ELECTION 2012 Okay girls and boys, time for the Big Kahuna of this year's discussion topics--one that will affect all of us U.S. residents this year: the Congressional and of course, Presidential election of the 2012 cycle. Democrat 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama II...

    Cars - Post your favorites!

    Anyone here into cars, or just enjoy motoring in general? Hatchbacks, sedans, sports coupes, trucks, you name it, we all spend a lot of time in them in our lives for the most part. Almost all good cars have some sort of charming characteristic to them that makes them stick out in your mind...

    The Bizarre and Whacky News Feed Thread

    With so much bad news in the headlines, I thought I'd start a thread for people to post recent weird/funny/whacky/insane news clippings they come across. There's so much of that out there, especially on local news, that it's hard to ignore sometimes. Always good to laugh at. :D These got me...

    Gaming headsets--Are they worth it?

    Pretty simple question. I've got a Best Buy gift card burning a hole in my pocket, and I can get a decent deal on a Turtle Beach DPX21 (it's one of the multi-console ones that has 5.1/7.1 forced sound). Mainly planning on using it for Battlefield and a couple of other games I plan on picking...

    Let's talk Cosplay.

    (I searched to see if there was a thread about this topic before, but didn't see anything. If there's a duplicate somewhere, Mods, please merge at will. :) ) For the uninitiated, the term cosplay (originally Japanese, but coming from the English loanwords 'costume' and 'play') is the act of...

    Top Gear (BBC version) possibly one of the most hysterical/clever shows on television, period. Anyone else here watch this nugget of a show? I've found you don't even have to love cars (though I do) to enjoy it. The presenters are all just very funny. James May is totally my TV husband, lol.

    If you could experience or see anything, what would it be?

    In a day and age when people put up 'Bucket lists' of things they'd like to do before they die (or are unable to get around without some tawdry invalid carriage), like going to Disney Land or meeting some star or eating at a particular famous restaurant, what kinds of experiences matter? What...

    Older members - Do you still talk to people from your childhood?

    By older, I mean those of us who, like myself, are in our mid-to-late twenties or older, where life may have dictated that we either move away or put us in a position to lose touch with our childhood friends. They say friendships you make during adulthood are different because they're more...

    TX Judge beats daughter in video, possibly guilty of criminal child abuse.

    No doubt some of you have heard about this. Texas Judge William Adams was shown beating his daughter in a 2004 video for downloading content on the internet that he alleged she 'stole'. His daughter, Hillary, released the video a few days ago now that she's 23 and out of that household. Judge...

    The Finer Things in Life-What are yours?

    Life doesn't allow most of us to live what the mainstream would call 'luxurious existences'. Most of us work to the bone, for not enough pay, or if we have comfortable jobs, they aren't nearly as lucrative as people would imagine to be. Merely enough to take care of our families, perhaps...

    What are some of your favorite books?

    Thread title says it all! Talk about what some of your favorite books are, and maybe why you like them :) I don't know about you, but for me my childhood was composed of a lot of reading. I didn't always have the latest games or movies, and since I moved around a lot, so I was constantly the...

    FIA Formula 1 Racing and Single-seater series

    Anyone here follow F1? Or GP2/GP3, Formula V, Formula Renault? I know it's pretty late in the 2011 season to start a thread considering Vettel just clinched the World Driver's Championship at Suzuka, but I figure it'd be worth a shot.
