He knows the names of lots and lots of players, I'll give him that.

You always seem upset because most of the soccer posters just make fun of your team all the time.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Combination. Arshavin has been an effective player way more recently than Fisher and was far better at his peak than Fisher, and Bjorn definitely considers a player's track record over the past couple seasons rather than just the past few months (which one can disagree with, but it's at least a defensible position.) Then, on the other side, Irving is like one of the top 10 assets in the NBA and already an established/excellent starter, whereas Ox has started 5 out of a possible 32 Premier League matches and simply isn't in the same tier of prospect or of current player. Given that I don't think "Fisher > Kyrie" is a fair analogy for Bjorn's position, obviously the three >s don't help. The AOC ~= Irving is the biggest mistake, though.

If you disagree with Arshavin's ranking though you should just post a reasoned rationale in Bjorn's thread, he's more than happy to explain things and it won't contaminate this thread further. Doubt posts just calling the ranking stupid, in here or in that thread, are likely to help the situation from anyone's perspective, though.

I too saw it recently, and thought it was very good. I am a sucker for dystopian fiction tho.

I'll be surprised if it isn't nominated for best picture next year.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

Soccer is a sport that has so little hard evidence to back anything up. This leads to pissy slap fights because no one can present solid evil pence to support their case.

Victor, did you ever get your car fixed? Mine wouldn't start at all yesterday. Tried jumping it but the cables weren't even arcing. Banged on the starter a few times and it started up.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

anyone ever do drywalling?

what a god-forsaken thing. so far i've put $450ish and 24 hours with my uncle into my garage, and it's starting to get close but man how many splinters have i had to cut out of my hands the last few weeks?

but, we're almost through a completely unfinished (just the frame and some occasional insulation) mess to a drywalled pimp garage with a ceiling fan and a flatscreen.

but yeah, 8 hour days drywalling/insulating/etc. aren't where it's at.
