What is a good motherboard? How in the heck to I overclock my stupid computer and what is overclocking? What's a modem? Do you like my wallpaper image of Bill Gates dressed up like a Borg guy? How do I write a program that will output "This class sucks and Mr. Harris FARTS!!!!" every time I press F11?

DVD Jon has broken the iPhone activation scheme - check it out, now you can use your iphone without the phone functions

Life at Google - perhaps google isn't a magical fun factory where everyone sits on those exercise balls instead of chairs and rides segways down the halls and uses their 20% time to solve world hunger after all

Net Neutrality turfed by FTC - with net neutrality in trouble how will wikipedia manage to maintain NPOV????

Anyone got a Pownce invite? - apparently the guy who made digg decided to take a cue from pets.com and make a new brand of cat food

If you're more familiar with the works of Marlon Wayans than Marlon Brando, this forum may not be for you.
Oh, who am I kidding?


July 2007 Movie of the Month: The Bicycle Thief - A movie about a guy who steals bicycles? You gotta be freaking kidding me

Bart Simpson Genitalia Discussion Thread - A bunch of nerds sit around and talk about cartoon character genitals and stumble upon the amazing realization that maybe the show isn't as good as it used to be. FUN FACT: This thread was at one time the top search result on Google for "Bart penis."

Untitled J.J. Abrams Project - if you saw the transformers movie then you saw a trailer for this. if you saw the transformers movie you are a child

Is any director less deserving of their fame than Brian DePalma? - first you get the money, then you get the power, then you get the unwarranted critical acclaim

9/11 would've been a great summer blockbuster if it didn't actually happen - ha ha yeah i saw that onion article too dude

~*~ The Firing Range ~*~
Reppin': Sir Tonk
Have you ever been polishing your extensive gat collection, then stopped to longingly look at your keyboard and wish you could discuss cleaning your guns with somebody? Who hasn't? That's what I want to know.


TFR Reading Room - "I've been reading a lot, since I've been unemployed." That sure sets up this thread. And now I know who John Ross is and why TFR is so bizarre. And when you're done with the book, you can use it for target practice!

Negligent Discharges and You - First we're just talking about the range, then it gets into goons shooting household appliances and computers. Stay the fuck away from this thread and these people's houses.

OSHA and Ammo??? - Remember that Chris Rock thing on making 'bullets' expensive? That sure was funny.

Gun stores >: ( - When I traded in my copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga they only offered me $20. It was in pretty good shape, no blemishes, and had the original packaging. It was worth at least $60 and regularly goes for over $100 at Gamestop.

This is why you have a gun safe, you morons. - "I'm so sorry you weren't home at the time I'm sure I would have loved the pictures of retarded kids with holes in them" And it just gets better from there. From sentry guns to landmines and that's just the first page.

help me pick a gun for home defense and also grizzly bears - TFR motto found "gun is still better than no gun"

There's no room left in my gun safe. - Gun people definitely have the monopoly on 'taking pictures of shit with flags behind it' and with no less than a Don't Tread on Me version of the Confederate flag.

~*~ Pet Island ~*~
Reppin': liquidator vrunt
Are you a pet fan? A fan of pets? Do you kiss your pets more than you kiss people? Have you ever given a cat CPR? Do you sometimes wish you could have pot-bellied pig babies? You disgust me.

Have you ever been to Pet Island (the subforum)? It has three different rules threads. Thats three times as many rules as I'm used to. Here are the best threads from Pet Island for the week:

Crating a cat? - There are about 2 dozen posts in this thread, and with an average of 80 paragraphs per post, you can guarantee that these guys have covered every possible question about putting a cat into a box. I recommend printing this one out so you can use a bookmark between readings.

Our parrot is eating us out of our shirts--literally. - That's no figure of speech, the parrot is ACTUALLY EATING SHIRTS. If you have a pet parrot or you're going to the home of a known parrot-owner you might want to invest in a anti-parrot necklace.

Seattle pet owners, have your pets been acting strangely lately? - I'm sitting here imagining a whole city full of animals all freaking out. Apparently the reason is the bizarre Seattle weather: one day it was sunny and the next day.. it rained! Weird.

Ferrets eating roaches, etc. - "Help! Ferrets are eating all my raoches!" This guy is worried that his pet ferrets are eating all the cockroaches in his house but he doesn't seem to care much about the cockroaches in his house.

My Labrador Retriever won't retrieve - This guy's dumbass dog doesn't even live up to his namesake. Plus, look at this guy. He's got a nasty leechman avatar. That's gross dude. I'm glad your dog is a retard because look how gross your picture thing is. My dog can retrieve stuff but he doesn't because I don't throw stuff all over the place unless I don't want it back.

biting, growling and barking puppy! HELP!! - Hmmm how can I make my puppy stop doing all these things puppies do? Either wait for it to get older and more mature or just kill it. Those are really your only options unless you want to read all the replies in this thread.

Need help identifying catfish. - This is the greatest thread in Pet Island and probably the best thread on the forums. This guy wants to find out what kind of catfish he has but there is a surprise twist! Click and find out. Or if you want to read a boring thread about real catfish you can just read this one.

That's it for this week! Thanks to the forum representatives for doing a nice job this week and thanks to you for reading this far without skipping any parts! You are such a great person! I am glad we are friends! Check back next week for more links from the SA Forums.
