• How concerned should I be with a tire's temperature rating?

    I'm referring to the UTQG rating given to the tire that shows how well it does at dissipating heat when rolling. An A graded tire is good for speeds over 115 mph, while a B graded tire is good for speeds over 100 but below 115. Obviously the A graded tire is theoretically better, but since I won't be driving over 100 anyway, does it... show more

  • On REM's CD Green, the song Stand has the letter R next to it instead of a 4. Why?

    It's the 4th song on the CD. The others are numbered 1,2,3, etc, but instead of the number 4, Stand has an R next to it.

It went something like this: "Hello, my name is _______. I'm from Mars and I eat nothing but candy bars." He opens the nosecone of a tiny space capsule, revealing fruit inside. "What's this, some earth fruit?" He eats some fruit. "Mmmm, it's good. It's better than good, it's yummy and not bad. Wait until I tell the other Martians about this. By only eating candy bars, we don't know what we miss."

  • Congratulations to the Giants and their fans?

    I posted this last night but there was so much activity it was on the 3rd or 4th page in a few minutes. Anyway, the Giants played a great game, and deserve to be champions. As a Patriot fan this game was very disappointing, but that the way it goes. Oh well, only 7 months until next season!

  • Ohio residents--Is this guy a real weatherman?

    I have a theory that the regular weatherman couldn't go on the air and they had to find a replacement at the last minute. Maybe they got someone from the station's accounting department or maybe even the picked the first guy they found walking down the street who was wearing a suit. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67NIBVSyq...

    This may be a little hard to explain, but here goes.

    This may be a little hard to explain, but here goes. Sometimes when I watch a show something funny happens, but it isn't funny until something is revealed to the home viewer, but for some reason the studio audience doesn't laugh until the revelation is made either. Why is that? For example, (this is just a general example, not anything from a specific show) let's say a guy is talking to someone who is at his side, but off screen and so can't be seen by people watching at home. What the person is saying to this unseen individual might not be funny, until the next shot reveals to the home viewer that he's talking to a chimpanzee wearing a funny hat, and then the studio audience bursts into laughter. Why is it that the studio audience doesn't laugh until the chimp is shown to the at home viewer? Can't they see him the whole time, or is he somehow hidden from view and then revealed to the studio audience as well?

Now that the comeback is complete, it would be easy to strike back, but I don't think we should. There will always be people who hate us for being Red Sox fans, and they'll never change. Let's just rise above it and show some class. To the respectable Indian fans who have been on here during this series, you guys have nothing to be ashamed of. The Indians are a great team and I expect to see them in the thick of the pennant race next year.

  • Toss from dugout to first baseman?

    I've noticed something that happens a lot if the first baseman make the last out of an inning. While he jogs off the field, he'll roll the ball into the dugout. At the same time, someone in the dugout will toss him another ball. I've seen it happen several times for different teams. Why?
