    I am going to Lorton tommorrow to play disc golf. Dont know where yet. Might do Pohick Bay, and Burke Lake. They say the course at laurel hill park is like fairway and thorns. I might take a machete to hack some away in case one of my hucks goes in there.

    Haha thanks. It felt great & easy swinging but 15 mins wasn't enough for me to have it dialed in. Very nice feeling stick & surprising pop!

    Well TM, if you don't get bumped to 4.5 later this year, you and I can bag sand together at 4.0 dubs or we'll bag even more sand at 4.0 senior dubs! My first option would be to play with TFM (God rest his soul), but since he's no longer available, you're it! :oops: Team PaulsMonkey!?? :shock: We can both slice and dice 'em to death! haha

    Ill give you guys a little test here as well. Seeing my experiences with Lesbians gives me the ability to know who is and is not one. Ill help you out.

    Question 1.

    How can you tell if this woman is a lesbian?

    [​IMG]

    Answer : The WNBA jersey.

    If you need further proof this woman (yes also wearing a WNBA jersey and also lesbian).

    [​IMG]

    Chamique Holdsclaw is in custody after being accused of shooting into a woman's car after using a bat to break its windows.

    Atlanta police said Thursday the incident happened Tuesday after the Olympic gold medalist followed 29-year-old Jennifer Lacy to her car. Lacy plays for the Tulsa Shock.

    No one was injured. Lacy identified the 35-year-old Holdsclaw, one of the biggest stars in women's college basketball history during her career at Tennessee, as an ex-girlfriend. They were teammates with the Atlanta Dream in 2009.

    http://espn.go.com/wnba/story/_/id/8637404/ex-wnba-player-chamique-holdsclaw-custody-assault

    This kinda stuff happens all the time in the WNBA players hooking up with each other, most dont as far as shooting at the other one though.

    But you can totally believe she is lesbian.

    With Ms. Rice you have alot of factors at play.

    She dated an NFL player but aside from that there is not much history of any interests. Is 58 not married no kids. Id say that leans toward the Lez side.

    Sepnt time in a man heavy worl of politics and around military types. Ive seen plaenty of Lesbians in the military and most of the actual females that can tolerate all the machismo have at least experimented with lesbianism.

    She is a member of Augusta National Golf club. Another good old boys club. She is apperntly a pretty good golfer. I went to an LPGA championship when it was here in Havre de Grace. Pretty much besides reporters, my Aunt, and family member the other 85% lof the crowd were blantly lesbian, and the rest were probably like 50% secretly behind the scenes lesbian.

    There is a 92.5812857626492638562345128 percent chance that Condy (thats is pretty lesbian sounding nickname. Not as bad as a girl named michelle going by Mitch but its up there) is a lesbian.

    i thought there were certain "given's," when joining certain political parties? I thought orientation was one of them for her political party?

    So you are saying based solely on what party a female selects emans she is a lesbian?

    That is totally wrong man. Not cool.

    not that i was inferring that, anyone can choose what their orientation is regardless of their political stance but I figure if a person is aligned with a certain ideology or affiliation in such a high position that it would be uncustomary. (i.e. meat eater being the president of the vegan club.)

    cb, that analogy doesn't make any sense. Her party is not called the straight (or lesbian) party...

    I think she's a Republican, who more or less, do not believe in same sex marriage. But there's no way they're barring people because of ideology based on that. For example, look at those two fools who lost their Senate seats, Mourdock and Akin, because of their r@pe/abortion views. The party distanced away from them based on their idiotic public comments but nothing they can do to bar them from the party or continue to run as Republicans...

    Anyway, there's no way a declaration of sexual orientation is a requirement of belonging to either party!

    Sacrifice the "L" in Paul and call yourselves MonkeyPaus.

    And Condy was/is as heterosexual as Sarah Palin, and 20 times as smart. You gotta trust me on this one. ;-)

    @wookie just open BlOps 2 up. Played for 90 minutes and go up to Level 7. Gameplay seems pretty good. But i haven't figured out all the perks yet?
    Grenades don't have the same power as they used to. I am still using pea shooters still. waiting till my stats get better.
    You going to be on this weekend for 2x XP's?

    IMHO- I think Treyarch got BLOPS2 right. Controls feel good and and while it's not as slow as BLOPS1 it isn't as insane fast as MW3.

    The Pick 10 system is great- love how it gives you total control of your loadout. Perks and weapons attachments are more simple than in MW3. You do have to "purchase" them using unlock tokens as you level up.

    I'm down with less grenade spam - in fact most of my loadouts don't have grenades so I can run extra perks using the wild cards. Another point is that some people may be running flack jacket.

    I was on briefly Sat morning, but didn't get to play much after that.

    BTW- Don't diss the pea-shooters. Word on the street is that the Semi-Machine Guns (PDW, MP7) are the way to go and that the Assault Rifles are under powered. You can do damage with a PDW with Laser sight.

    I'm flying out of BWI for thanksgiving to visit my parents in Florida.

    The place they live has 16 courts so I'm going to bring a couple of racquets but I want to bring them as carry ons.. flying AA out of BWI. I also need to bring my backpack w/ laptop etc so I can get some work done while down there.

    Anyone have any experience with this?

    I hate that laser sight attachment. Maybe I don't know how to use it. I love that reflex sight looking thing that is part of the heavy gunner preset. It puts a red x on all your possible targets. Assault rifle reloads is slow even with fasthands perk. I double clip on my weapons now. Lodeship scorestreak is insane. I always end up ending in death using the Death Machine scorestreak.

    My must have wildcard is that overkill feature, gives me two primary weapons. I really miss that "Slight of Hands," perk in BlOps 1. I am happy they brought back bouncing betty's, I thought it's better than the claymores, although I think I still see it. One of my fav moves is have players chase me and I throw a bouncing betty in front of me and have them step on it. Explosion spam on that thing is pretty effective. It's pretty much has the same "**** off your opponent," effect as a drop/lob on someone or bouncing the ball 58 times before serving on the courts.

    Happy also to see shotguns are alot better now. Don't see a point why we need reflex sights attachment with shotguns.

    I put in 3 hours this weekend on Nuketown 2025. Got up to lvl 35 now. Double XP helping me out alot. btw, u got a friend request waiting on your xbox. I am playing this while running on my elliptical nowadays. I figure I'll juice my stat's first before going to other maps. Nuketown without crazy/insane/unreasonable grenade spam saddens me. No more free pts as I am one of those hated crazy grenade lobbers. =(

    I got destoryed in MW3. I sold it on CL 3 days after released. I can't hang with the ppl there. I had a 0.33 kill rate. It was way too complicated and the maps were not very friendly

    Might want to check the policies of the airline you are on. Some carriers might let you bring a racket or two as carry on and some might not. Last few times I flew I packed a single racket into my backpack as carry-on with no problem.

    So you are saying at one point she was into dudes, but is now no longer? I guess I trust you to confuse me.


    Palin was smart at making herself a celebrity, and making her daughter a relevenat celebrity for like 2 motnhs. Sarah just didnt go full blown kardashian and have her daughter release a sex tape with a 2d rate rapper to reach superstardom status.

    Tahts and Bristol doesnt have a huge booty and big fake boobs. Bristol is not Condy type, but you can bet Condy sees kim in that those tight dresses and think to herseld "if I only had some time alone with her I would totally take a crack at that"

    But I have enver seen Condy wear a WNBA jersey before so she could very well hetero just not wanting to pump out kids and stuff.

    Never tried rackets before, but I tried to carry on a couple baseball bats I had bought at the Louisville Slugger factory. They made me check the baggage and didnt let me carry them on flight.

    It depends if they see it as a weapon or not I guess. most people dont think of rackets as weapons. But you carry a 36 inch 42 ounce Honus Wagner bat you gotta check that.

    if you put 1 or 2 racquets in a backpack, with the handle sticking out, it shouldn't be an issue...i've done it before...

    although, i've been stopped with my 12 pack bag trying to get on the plane...and they made me check it (too big)...

    Laser sight is a great perk for increasing accuracy for hip fire. It can give you the jump on someone still trying to aim down the sites.

    I'm sort of Meh on the target finder. I thought it would be awesome but I just find that it clutters my sight and I"m usually faster aiming without it. Only tried it on the SMG, maybe it's better with the AR or MGs.

    I Hate... HATE bouncing bettys! It's harder to pick them out. I can usually avoid the claymores.

    Haven't tried the shot guns yet. Maybe I should, seem like they are always a one-hit kill.

    I accepted your friend request last night. I"m only up to level 22, didn't get to do much of the double XP weekend. Still it's pretty fun for the most part. I still prefer Battlefield though. Can't wait for BF4. Probably going to pick up the BF3 Aftermath expansion too.

    depends what you are looking for? I've been brining turkeys since I started doing thanksgiving turkey's for the past 10+ years.

    I want to try deep frying but I won't know what to do with all the peanut oil after the frying. The oil will have alot of game smell, only thing I can do is other turkey's or seafood. But I have had deep fried turkeys. And what folks said is true, deep fried anything is always 10x better tasting than anything cooked otherwise.

    CB -- frying IS delicious. but it also seems like a major hassle. i think we are going with brining on wednesday and regular old turkey in the oven thursday.
