Except that thousands of years ago we domesticated these animals. They aren't wild animals anymore, they are companion animals. I don't think anyone would argue that the quality of life of my cats is significantly higher than a feral cat fending for itself.

I wouldn't keep a tiger in a cage, no matter how big. That is… » 10/25/14 9:29am Saturday 9:29am

We have 3 cats, one is a over-eater that will try to vulture the others food by scarfing his down as fast as possible and then run to their bowls. He will also vomit any red meat, so we can only feed him food with chicken, turkey, or fish. Another is actually just normal and eats his food, rarely tries to steal and… » 10/24/14 10:53am 10/24/14 10:53am

You must have mostly played bass trombone or rarely played principal. Not only was I taught tenor clef as a freshman in high school, but was reading alto by freshman in college. By the time I finished undergrad I would was playing etudes in lessons that were in a different clef for each measure and performing on alto… » 10/21/14 7:51am 10/21/14 7:51am

Sounds like you're on FIOS. I tried to mess with our network so that the supplied hardware merely was like a modem and our router then handled all the heavy lifting (DHCP, DNS, etc... I think, it's been a while). But I never quite got it to where the modem would get a new dynamic IP. I finally just gave in and have… » 10/15/14 10:34am 10/15/14 10:34am

Yeah, we were apprehensive when we went from VZW unlimited data to T-Mobile's 1 GB plan each. It's been 6 months and the closest we've come to the cap is my wife in the first month used about 800 MB. With a little more attention to wifi usage she got it down to 300 the following month and I've never been over 200.

We… » 10/10/14 8:29am 10/10/14 8:29am

I came here to mention this exactly. However you are lucky enough to live in GA. I worked as a claims rep for the GEICO office in Macon and we processed claims for over 20 states. Of those, only Georgia required by law that diminished value be awarded. Even then there are stipulations that the car had to initially be… » 10/08/14 3:31pm 10/08/14 3:31pm

Same here, we are closing on a house on the 28th. 6 months ago we cut cable, trimmed all our bills as much as possible, my wife started couponing, I started drinking cheaper beer, and we went out to eat less. All in an effort to save for closing costs, get a new vacuum when we move, and possibly a bigger TV for the… » 10/08/14 7:53am 10/08/14 7:53am

Had this on tap a few weeks ago. My review in Untappd said 'Mmmmm, hops'. Clearly was a big fan but it was also on the edge of my bitter tolerance. They are opening a brewery in the coming years just down the road from me in Norfolk, VA so they have a lot of support around here. I can't wait to be able to pick up… » 10/07/14 3:15pm 10/07/14 3:15pm

Yeah, I got my X1 about 3 months ago and found it absurd there was no native way to stream content from my PC to the X1. Currently it's not an issue because I game off my 2nd monitor beside the PC. But if I were to use the X1 the way MS wants me to, as a living room media hub, then this is a glaring omission. » 10/06/14 12:36pm 10/06/14 12:36pm

So I have a two Roku 3's and two computers running Windows 8.1. What I would love to do is be able to mirror my PC's screen (both HP) to the Roku. On Sunday's, the only way to watch my NFL team's game is through online streams that only work on PC. The streams play in Chrome, I assume they are flash videos.

What I… » 10/03/14 12:18pm 10/03/14 12:18pm

Great timing, I have never had a gose but was going to try one tonight. Got a few months subscription to the rare beer club for my birthday and September had a gose from Fullsteam in Durham (awesome since I'm from NC).

I am still on the fence about sour beers, I find them more as a novelty that is interesting/unique… » 10/03/14 11:51am 10/03/14 11:51am

We use them at work to have a dual monitor setup and then mirror a projector to the left monitor for presentations.

I also use one at home since I have an all-in-one PC with no video input of any sort. I already had a top notch 2nd monitor I used for my Xbox so I got one these and now I have a dual monitor setup when… » 9/18/14 3:32pm 9/18/14 3:32pm

As someone who was born and grew up in NC for 22 years, I must revoke your NC card. It isn't pulled pork, it's BBQ. BBQ isn't that tomato/mustard based sauced slathered on pulled slivers of pork. BBQ is a whole hog over a charcoal grill for 12 hours, continuously marinated with a vinegar based sauce, and then CHOPPED… » 9/12/14 6:56am 9/12/14 6:56am

This is the exact reason my wife lets me spend as much money on a gaming headset as my actual console. I usually stay up an hour or two past her gaming a couple nights a week and up until a few months ago I played on a TV just across the hall from the bedroom. When I told her a headset would mean she wouldn't hear a… » 9/11/14 8:33am 9/11/14 8:33am

Just don't take it too far. As a 30 year old with a masters in music performance from one of the top conservatories in the country, I can wholly say just play for fun. Don't even think about making it a career. Even if you are a prodigy, you're better off being a half-assed programmer and trying to make the next candy… » 9/08/14 6:55pm 9/08/14 6:55pm

I got a 6 pack of this last fall and have been keeping an eye out for it since. Definitely one of my favorites that is still somewhat affordable enough to keep in stock. But it seems to have almost gone seasonal around here, in VA, because no one has had it in stock for a while. Granted I haven't been looking for 32… » 9/08/14 4:39pm 9/08/14 4:39pm

We had a huge and very modern gym with indoor and outdoor pools. The library also loaned cds and dvds, although I know most public libraries do this as well. There was also tons of free entertainment. Whenever we were bored we could just walk through the center of campus and find something to do. We also took… » 9/08/14 8:21am 9/08/14 8:21am

More importantly though, is it faster? I had to give up on Chrome when it became so unbelievably slow towards the end of my GNex. Gave it another shot on the M8 and it was still noticeably slower than Dolphin browser. If it can't hang on an M8, then it doesn't cut it on any device. I'd love to use Chrome for… » 9/05/14 10:43am 9/05/14 10:43am
