Re: X-mas bonus 2011 thread

My company isn't the kind to give out anything aside from setting aside a token amount for a holiday party. In short, if you don't attend, you don't get anything as a replacement -- not even the...

Re: What's the story behind your username?

It's an old name I've used on and off from the halcyon BBS days in the eighties, but I was known as Captain Eplicon.

The name just came by chance one very late summer night in 1984, playing a...

Re: Are you still friends with your childhood best friend?

I pretty much lost touch with just about everyone I knew in my childhood. The passage of time, moving to different states, school, life in general, etc., pretty much sealed the deal. For some, even...

Re: road rage talk: have you ever gotten out of the car?

Never had (or would want) to get out of the car. I've had a few instances where I had to drive defensively to dodge or protect my lane due to the ineptness of other drivers that didn't use turn...

Re: Post your MLB allegiance!

Growing up in NJ, it's been the Yankees, since 1976. Back when I started to follow baseball, I knew I had a choice between them or the Mets. None of my classmates cared for the Mets, so not wanting...

Re: Delicious foods that you only recently discovered

Mango peach salsa. I've always avoided anything with cilantro in it because I could never stand the taste, not to mention the aroma. It always stuck out like a sore thumb no matter where it was...

Re: Opening Presents: Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

For the longest time, we'd open ours X-mas Eve shortly after dinner. The tradition had since fallen to the wayside since there's no longer the big family get-together this time of year.

Re: Actor Karl Malden dies at 97

Malden had a terrific, authoritative presence in most of his roles. And his American Express commercials tended to terrify me as a kid because the tone of the ads made it appear that you were in...

Re: Celebrity Deaths Demonstrates Our Messed Up Society

One guy compared MJ's death with that of the JFK assassination and talked as if he was a monumental part of history or something since he was there to experience it.

As for me, I'm just tired that...

Re: Which recent celebrity death had the biggest impact on you?

None of the recent ones affected me. Carradine's death was bizarre, McMahon and Farrah, et al. were on death's doorstep, and MJ was a trainwreck. Billy Mays is the only one that caught me by...

Re: Report: 'Informercial King' Billy Mays Dies

I'm also one of those unfazed by Michael Jackson's passing, largely because I didn't care too much for his music or his increasingly bizarre behavior over the years. I remember when Elvis died, when...

Re: Your thoughts on Chiropractors?

I once saw a chiropractor for a few months as I've always had some kind of chronic back pain going back the past 25 years or so. After a few treatments, the pain went away. A couple years later,...

Re: Kill Bill Star David Carradine Found Dead in Bangkok

Wow, this came out of nowhere. Certainly one of the last people I'd expect to do something like this.

Re: Smallville -- Season Finale -- "Doomsday" -- 5/14/09

IIRC, earlier in the season Jimmy said he fabricated his family background just to fit in and seemed to have little to do with them. So their appearance at the end did seem rather a convenient way...

Re: Smallville -- Season Finale -- "Doomsday" -- 5/14/09

It was certainly one of the weaker (weakest?) season finales. I was expecting a much darker episode based on what was alluded to. But I figured out who the veteran character was going to be since...

Re: Username Origins

Mine is just a holdover from the good old days of 300 baud, electronic BBSes back in 1986. I used the handle (as they were called back in the day) Captain Eplicon on some of them.

Re: So, have you found out that someone has the same birthday as you?

Someone I knew casually several years ago asked me how old I was. I've always looked much younger than my age would suggest, so I do get asked that quite a bit. She didn't believe me until I showed...
