Songs Game 2.0
Today, 05:53 PM
I have seen we have various threads about computer help, what to buy? various terms, differences between MAC and PC, I made this thread for anyone that wants some of us with computer experience to answer some of those who need some advice or help trouble shooting..
There are a bunch of people who frequent this Forum who's first name I know. There are countless others that I have no idea what their first name is.
Couple that with the hundreds upon hundreds of new people who have registered that would have no idea who people are... I thought it would be a good idea for a Thread where people (who wish to divulge this information) give their first name. This is not to be a joke Thread, please be serious and only respond if you wish to give your name.
So today I made a change that I knew was coming for quite a while: at his own request, Bub has been made a regular, non-admin, member of the NYYF community. Bob has been hugely responsible for the tenor and success of this site. He even delayed his retirement from NYYF Adminship for a year to help keep track of new users and other site matters. The role of "Administrator" here on the forum is something I protect quite closely, and Bob is the only other person I've given those keys to. He has...
This game starts with a poster putting up the name of a song and who recorded it. The next poster uses a word from the preceding song title to post a new song, and so on.
First poster: Drive My Car - The Beatles
Next poster: Fast Car - Tracy Chapman
I'll start the game with:
oh hell yeah! So badass.
Warning: there are comic spoilers in here so watch at your own risk. You've been warned. (One is pretty damn epic, right at the end)
I closed the Election 2016 thread, because it’s clearly old news. In its place, I opened a thread to discuss the President, and I’m opening this one to discuss Current Events that don’t necessarily center around the President. Often, the Election thread went off on tangents. I’m thinking of this as a stand-alone thread to be a home for those tangent discussions.
When the discussion gets around to politics, the same ground rules will apply as I stated in the President Trump thread:
I closed down the Election 2016 thread, but have opened this one to discuss the POTUS. I must be a glutton for punishment. About 95% of the complaints I get via IM are from that one thread. A similar percentage of “reported posts” also come from that thread. However, it’s generated over 37,000 entries. Our community clearly sees value in a political discussion. So, we can let it continue.
Keep it courteous and respectful. Disagree all you want, but watch the...
One for the movies and now one for TV shows :D
Anyone watch "Psych", the new show on USA? I like it quite a bit. It's pretty funny.
Also, anyone watch Hell's Kitchen?
Google Chrome is blocking the "The "I just saw a movie that doesn't warrant its own thread" (Version 2.0)" thread to me:
where I can't view or reply to the thread anymore. In case anyone else has that problem I thought maybe we should start a new thread here... Version 3.0
New thread for the new year I guess.
I'm 90% sure none of my history classes in HS or college even mentioned Henry Wallace.
Seems like a cool guy. Just ordered American Dreamer: A Life of Henry A. Wallace.
It's also way past time to read a good Teddy Roosevelt biography. If anyone has a suggestion on that front, I'd be glad to hear it.
Someone died who didn't deserve their own thread...
Just because we're posting spoilers and details in the tv show thread.
74 degrees here in the Albany area on February 24. Honey bees are out and about. Nice for walking outdoors, but not good for the maple syrup producers, or the skiers and snowmobiles. Hope the cold air gets back before the fruit trees think about blossoming early.
Has anyone purchased a tac light flashlight? I was considering getting one for me and one for each of my kids. The one on tv is made by Bell & Howell but it's like $20 on Amazon and I feel like this is one of those "you get what you pay for" items. $20 is extremely good for something that is supposedly indestructible, waterproof, and as bright as it's supposed to be. But I read up on some others which go for around $50 to $80 and I see the same negative reviews I worry about with the B&H...
Once upon a time, we had a thread on Education. I can't seem to find it...it was likely in the old Political Soapbox. Regardless, increasingly, we've seen discussion of education show up in the Election thread. Probably not the right venue. So, allow me to create a space to discuss our educational system.
Is what we're doing in Public Education the right route? Should we have educational standards? Is it OK to leave some children behind? What should we be doing, as a society, to...
We need to discuss this. Science books had to all be rewritten, now again?
Trivia? How many planets are in the solar system? How will this be answered? You'll need to find out when the question was asked.
Alan Stern is right, this is bull***.
Although, I'm not certain what letters the 3 asterisks are covering up.

Let's see now;
FIRST we had Kellyanne Conway lamenting the Bowling Green Massacre that never happened. She claimed she misspoke. 3 times?
Second we had old Spicey wring his hands over the tragic terrorist attack in Atlanta. Atlants? OOPS! He meant the shooting at the nightclub in Orlando. Geesh! Those pesky details. What? You want him to remember every detail about everything?
Third we have President Donald Trump going all Dog Day Afternoon on the fiendish terrorists who attacked...
We are coming up on the Oscars. I saw Lion yesterday and that got me thinking about Best Picture winners. I find myself disagreeing with the Best Picture choice more often than not but I do always try to see the movie that won. Thought it might be interesting to hear people's favorite (or least favorite).
