2 - maple and fruit oatmeal, also from mccdonalds (finally a healthy fastfood option)
3 - Law and Order - Los Angeles (i was flipping through channels and started watching it. It's a show with both detective work AND psychology AND legal stuff? They challenge you to think during the commercials because they show you everything they know as it happens. When the ending came I was like ooo man there were so many signs why didn't I see that ?? Man i didnt know shows like this existed! Also it's based in LA so I recognized random places in the episode.
by the way, the profile biographies for the new members are up
Oh dear... I mean... ZING! lol
Topic #2 (Part 1 of 2): What color suits you? Black, Gray, or Navy?
Summer is almost here and weddings are starting to bloom all over the place. It's the day before the wedding and well your stuck with the boring white shirt tie combo. Not to mention, there are plenty of single girls at the wedding looking for guys to dance with. How do you make yourself look classy and ready to dance with, without looking like you just came from basketball practice? The answer: With a suit Sherlock.
Let's start with the basic Black Suit. Black is by far the most common color and every man should have one. Black is pretty much timeless, meaning 100 years from now it will still be the staple at most formal event (wedding & funeral) and even non formal event. Black goes with pretty much any color or pattern shirt and tie combo.
What about Navy? Well, it's very common and work best in an office environment. Recommend not getting this color if your not Mr. CEO.
Gray is also a good choice especially if it's a darker gray (charcoal), because it's very versatile and like black it can be worn with pretty much any occasion.
Only a few can pull these suit colors so don't try: Tan, White, Pink, Green, Purple, Crazy stripes etc. Just stick with the basic three color and you won't end up looking like Tommy Lee Jones.
I guess the only person that can wear any color suits is Tommy Lee Jones.

Topic #1: Socks and Why you should care!
We all know that there are different colors and pattern socks, but do we know how to use them correctly in different situation? I don't mean using socks as a way to get out of a warehouse, but to impress your future boss at work or in an interview.
There are a lot of different socks nowadays and you could pretty much get them anywhere (Amazon, department store, gas station, etc). The sock colors that are essential to a man's wardrobe include: Black, Brown (tan), Navy, and White.
We all know how to use a white pair of socks and maybe some of you even know how to use a black pair correctly. But what about all the other color and pattern? Well....
Your pant should match the color of your socks and if your socks is a dress socks then pair with dress shoes (I'll talk more about that next time). The shade of color on your socks should not be the same shade as your pants with exception to black.
White - Casual, wear them when your not doing business or attending any special events, usually worn for sports and at home (jeans will do). There are exception like for example at my work place, some choose to wear white socks (I'm one of them), but work is casual enough that people don't really care.
Black - Formal, your pant should be black or dark enough to be consider black (if it's a gray/charcoal color, then go with gray/charcoal pants).
Brown (tan) - Business casual, again pants should match, a pair of tan or brown khakis should do.
Navy - Formal/Business casual, not a lot of options for pants color other than navy.
Pattern (stripes, argyle, etc) - Match your pants with primary color of the socks, if it's mostly black then black pants.
If you can't match the color of socks with your pants, then use a different color and ask yourself why you bought that ugly green, unless your a boston celtics fan. There are a lot of exceptions to this rule and I won't cover it all, just use some common sense. Questions?
The NBA's last game of the regular season is today which means its also the last day of our fantasy basketball. I am in second place with a half point behind Aaron/Aaron's dad. The championship will be decided on the last day of games. In the ten years of fantasy basketball, I've never seen it come down to the last day. This will be epic.

Is the president of the Czech Republic a pen stealer?
LOL. Sneaky bastard!
According to the Naples Daily, Rachel Ann Hachero went home after her mother's refusal grabbed a 9mm Sig Sauer pistol, hit her mother with it, and demanded she accompany her to the dealership. Not wanting to get shot, the mother complied and signed off on the purchase. The next day, while her daughter was at school, the mother recovered the gun and drug paraphernalia from the girl's purse and called the police.

Video games now can be beaten by anyone, even someone who's never picked up a controller. All you have to do is simply set the game settings to noob. But back then, there was only one level: badass mofo. You could only beat the game if you mastered your character's moves and abilities. Your skill level wasn't measured in points at the end of the level. It was measured by how far in the game you could reach too. On average you had nine lives (3 lives for 3 "continues"). And you died if you got hit ONCE. In Call of Duty, you can live if you get shot ten times and there's unlimited continues. Even in modern Mario games on the DS, you die if you get hit once, but there's unlimited lives and/or continues. So you win even if you suck. LAME
Just to give you an example of how hard it was to beat some games, I got Sonic 2 for Sega Genesis for my first communion gift (around 1995-96). That game was so fun but I could never beat it. For years I got to the last boss, at which I had around three to six lives left. I had to write down Dr. Robotnik's moves so that I could remember the pattern for the next time I played (because I expected to fail). I tried to beat this game more than ten times but I couldn't. But as a second grader, I didn't cry when I lost. I accepted that I wasn't good enough, but that was okay because only badass mofos win games.... fast forward.... UCLA first year living in the dorms. David introduces me to simulators which can play old games like NES, Genesis, Super Nintendo, etc on a computer. It's cheating because you can save your game progress. So when I got to the last stage, I saved it and everytime I got a couple hits on Dr. Robotnik, I saved. And when I died I just reloaded to the previous stop before I died. I knew I was cheating but when I finally won the game I felt tears of joy streaming down my face. A decade of trying, and I finally WON. This is how games should be, rewarding because it is hard. The final stage below, where this guy makes a mockery of the final boss.
Of course, some games are SO HARD that it's impossible for a normal human to beat the game. I could have beat Sonic if I had a little more skill, but I'm pretty sure I could never beat Contra without unlimited life cheats.
And finally, some games are so IMPOSSIBLE that when I was a kid I could only get through like four or five levels out of ten. And even when I used my saves through emulator, I gave up because it was still so hard. It would have taken me hours to finish that game because I would have to save my progress every thirty seconds. Example: Ninja Gaiden. This video below is long but if you watch it you can see how many random things are thrown at you.
The bottom line: kids nowadays feel entitled to winning, or else they end up whining. Back in my day there was no easy mode, you only won if you were a badass mofo.
Random best memory of video games as a kid: Going to my friend's birthday party in second grade, and being able to own all of his older brother's 8th grader friends in Mortal Kombat 2.

“You know what Grinds my Gears?” Or as I will refer to it from now on “GG”
This first edition is based on annoying things that happen when you’re driving, and these are actions that are legal but yet still douche in nature.
You want to turn right, but you’re second in the lane, it’s a red light, and the guy in front of you wants to go straight. GG
The ironic paradox that also grinds my gears: you’re still in the second lane on the right, but there’s green light and you want to go straight. But the guy in front of you wants to turn right and there’s some pedestrians preventing him from going. GG
The ironic paradox: you’re on a busy street in an old area whose streets are not updated to modern traffic needs (ex:
