  1. I've been there a couple of times. and its very pretty. It 's a free museum, but you have to pay for parking ($10 or $15 depending on time of day). I'm not a big connoisseur of museums, but I enjoyed it. I know that they had to return a bunch of stuff that were found to be stolen and had to pull a bunch of stuff that were found out to be fake. WRT Hearst Castle, Julia Morgan had to deal with Hearst himself and worked on the place on her weekends while working as an architect in SF. I was impressed they got the water for the place from the next valley over. (no local water well or s
  2. I have a person that works for me, that worked on a study decades ago at Purdue that proved that the two person CPR method shown on April was far more effective than standard CPR for the exact reason stated in the show - it helped recirculate the blood through the body. Chest compression pushed the blood out, the other pushed it back. I don't remember the reason why it was never implemented if it worked better. First time I have ever seen this shown on TV or movies. Cool.
  3. One of his slams against people who discuss coal as a dying industry was to mention that Walmart is the next largest employer in the State. Not to slam anyone, but Walmart is the largest employer "by number of employees" in most of America. Most of the South, a chunk of the Mid West and depending on what pictogram you are looking at, California.
  4. Even better was that there were four parts to this talk (it was queued up in YouTube on the side :) )
  5. I liked how Ann Curry referred to her being raised Catholic by a Buddhist. There is a part of Buddhism where it is focused on you and thinking the right way, acting the right way, etc. Doing the right thing is not taking pleasure in Lauer's downfall and implosion. I'm bad Buddhist.
  6. I loved how impressed Jimmy was by Maya's French.
  7. Joy had so much more patience than I. I would have cut their mic if they kept on talking over me. I actually think that it was his strategy. Get his shots in while he could and blame Joy for not listening to him.
  8. I think the panel didn't know to call him on it. I figured they knew one of the Eastern block countries was invaded in 1956 and another in 1968, but weren't sure enough to call him on it. Dr Z would have smacked it down.

    I was a little surprised that the bus went to the casino. I was hoping for a obscure Fight Club callback where the bus driver drove Ben to the casino for a chip payoff.
  10. I can't confirm it, but it looked like Holiday Hannah was different in the flash back scenes than in the partner scene. The only reason I noticed it that partner Joanne looks like Amy Acker and the flash back Holiday didn't look like Amy. Did anyone else notice this?
  11. I like Paris in the spring, did it once. There is a reason why there is a song called Paris in the Spring, but every time I say that I recognize that I sound like a rich pompous jackhole. I try not to say it. Way to sound like the common person Mika.
  12. It really depends on the person. Sometimes I get a slight flush in my cheeks. My friend went beet red.
  13. Depending on which website you look at it is 30 to 80% of East Asians that get the flush. One brother and I don't, the other brother does and just doesn't drink. I had a friend in college that pretty much reacted as if she was allergic with the instant flush and elevated heart rate. I'm glad that Louis got to have his talk with Eddie. This is one topic where rap wouldn't have an answer for him about life. :)
  14. Don't mess with Freddie the Frog. He's my boy. :) Did anyone else catch the guy that think that we aren't praising Wall Street enough? I had to Google the guy. It was weird. He's actually a long time Wall Street guy, shocker.
  15. Joe mentioned that this administration is the most conservative since the Hoover administration. Hmmm, what happened during the Hoover administration. Way to reassure me Joe!
