    It’s the ads. I know some ads are based on my browsing history. I see ads for items I looked at on Amazon and DXL. I tend to ignore the other ads. I refuse to do business with sites that interfere with me leaving the page.

    This is a parenting issue. Many modern parents don’t care. I will blame parents before I will blame movies or video games. I grew up with video games and access to violent movies. The Atari 2600 didn’t have GTA, and I never saw the infamous Custard game. I never took my BB gun and pointed it at the sky to shoot down aliens coming down in formation. I had access to all of the slasher movies of the 80s. I still preferred my silent movies, Universal Horror, Hammer Horror, Godzilla, Abbott and Costello, Marx Brothers, and Laurel and Hardy. I never tried to bite anyone like Dracula did. I may be guilty of too many bad puns, word play or pratfalls. There was no porn in the house. The VCRs were in my room and my dad struggled with the power switch so no video porn. I never discovered any hidden porn when I could always find my hidden presents before they were wrapped.

    My only questionable act might be wanting black panties for my Batman costume. Why couldn’t they make the costumes correctly? That section of black or blue on the mass produced Batman costumes or the red section on Superman. …back in the 70s.

    Many movies took liberties with recorded historical events where we have original documents and photos. Many movies based on books or short stories are often not close to the original stories – even some classics. We expect them to follow The Bible properly??

    I thought it was Ghostbusters 3, not a remake. I’ve lost track.

    This sounds like another “Biblical” movie to avoid. So I guess an earthquake gets the rock people who helped Noah to make a path for Moses and his people. smh. It appears Fox didn’t learn from Paramount’s mistake with Noah.

    I’ll stick to the mini-series and my Blu-rays of older movies – Ten Commandments, The Bible, Ben-Hur, The Robe.

    Westworld is great. First movie about a computer virus. The sequel is not as good, but I still liked it. I enjoyed Futureworld as a kid so there’s some sentimental value for me. The sequel seems more like a made for TV movie.

    ElljaySee – Sorry, I didn’t quite hear all that with this McCain in my ear. (I’m in AZ.) So 3% should stop him from returning?

    I have sleep apnea, and you are incorrect. You do NOT always wake up so many people may not even know they have it. Your body might shake as it tries to breathe again. There might be sweat. There is usually severely loud snoring.

    During my sleep lab, my breathing stopped 90 times per hour. I never woke up during the lab. My parents observed me shaking. I was often covered in sweat. My snoring was disturbing people in China. You never get restful sleep so you do fall asleep during the day because you’re too tired. I fell asleep at some jobs. I did fall asleep while driving. With driving, it was like I blinked and the scenery changed. I didn’t even realize I had fallen sleep. At the time, I had never heard of sleep apnea.

    However, I still feel this is a BS verdict.

    There are treatments. I’ve used a CPAP since 1998. CPAPs and BiPAPs are essentially air pumps that keep the airways open so your breathing never stops. Some people don’t like using them. I have to use the type of mask with the nasal pillows (the mask rests against my nostrils), The traditional CPAP mask gives me claustrophobia for some reason. Humidifier on the CPAP helps too. There are mouthpieces that can be worn.

    It sounds like he’s refusing to follow treatments. It’s his own fault. Insurance should help with cost. If not, my CPAP cost me $250 (normally cost $900) plus about $90 for a mask. I’ve used this model of CPAP for over 5 years now.

    Unfortunately, the boxer may end up getting fired due to company policies. I hope not. Best of luck to him.

    I wonder if they could look for my mind while they’re there. I lost that years ago along with a very nice pen.

    When I first read the headline and because buck was capitalized, I was thinking Sexton at first. How could he have trouble leaving the field? Exits blocked?

    I am still waking up plus not much sleep. Rough night.

    I have The Blaze as my home page on my browser, and it has crashed my browser many times. The article pages seem less likely to crash my browser. It’s the Blaze home page that’s a nightmare. It has to be the script in some ads doing this. I’m guessing that’s why it does not happen every time, just frequently.

    I’m changing my home/default page on my browser. I’m tired of it freezing up before I click on a saved link.

    I’ve never even heard of Ibanez before. Kinda cool that a guitar company is among the top googled brands here in AZ. However, I use Bing. I guess my porn searches never got counted.

    I do not have celiac, but wheat makes me feel miserable – joint inflammation, mental fog, headaches. I wish people would stop viewing gluten free as a diet. You won’t lose weight from gluten free unless you cut back on the gluten free breads and pasta. Gluten free is about avoiding a reaction within the body. Gluten free substitutes can be more fattening than the regular stuff. Moderation is still needed.

    Drifted a bit from what I wanted to say. I rarely ask about a gluten free menu (which also means wheat free) because I look things up online whenever possible before going. If I’m going to a steakhouse or someplace like that, I know what to avoid anyway. I just have to be careful about hidden ingredients. I stick to the meat and veggies and avoid the bread. They normally hand you the steak sauce in the bottle so I can read ingredients myself.

    I’m a guy, and I don’t ask about GF because I often check online on my phone before going inside.

    He never said he had celiac.

    I’m simply avoiding wheat and gluten free means no wheat. 3 days after giving up wheat ALL of my joint pain disappeared. The same is true for others I know. Modern wheat (Dwarf wheat) was created around 1959 in Mexico and never tested to verify safety for human consumption. It is an opiate causing people to eat more. Again, I don’t snack as much since giving up wheat. People do experience withdrawal symptoms when they stop eating wheat. The headaches make perfect sense to me.

    I know many refuse to believe this about wheat. I can feel the difference, and I can tell when I accidentally ate some wheat. A small amount creates a mental fog for a few days. I do not have celiac. These are personal experiences, and I am not alone in it.

    Someone made a jab at gluten free and said they should eat steak. Steak with butter (which I often cook myself) is gluten free. My only issue with Chinese food is that soy sauce has wheat in it. Naturally, anything breaded will have it too. I gave up Chinese food except for what I cook at home.

    When eating out, I check web sites before going and avoid bread, but also have to be careful about sauces. Wheat is often used as a thickener is sauces and soups.

    When I read the headline, my first thought was she’s quoting Groucho Marx. …part of a song in Horse Feathers.

    Actually, the Great Oz did attempt to help. However, this commie wiz will probably deny access or give them a BS answer “We’ll do all we can. I will make this my top priority.” …which he says about every issue when addressing every group.

    I’d like to see one of the motorcycle groups escort them or meet them in DC. I don’t have the $$$ for traveling to DC.

    I realize there’s more involved here, but we already have different prices for different internet speeds. Each internet service has different prices based on the speed and other features a customer may want. In essence, I’m already paying extra for a fast lane.

    I’m been looking at web hosting sites, and they also have prices based on the needs for the web site. Someone hosting a blog pays less than someone streaming video.

    So I agree, this looks like an excuse for the government to get their fingers into something and royally screw it up. Things will be running as smoothly as and perhaps we’ll get some censorship in there too.

    My mom used to have a boss who was French, and it was a French company as well. He made an observation that I think fits what AvengerK is saying.

    In the US, we have a mix of cultures and experiences that can result in a wide variety of opinions and ideas. In other countries, like the Middle East, you have fewer outsiders in the community so everyone has the same life experiences, often have the same ideas. There are fewer outside influences. You don’t have multiple cultures trying to get along. They don’t hear as many alternate points of few. If they do, they are so few that they have little to no impact on their society. It takes much longer for a new idea to spread if it spreads at all.

    I don’t view this as an advert. They aren’t promoting a product. As a company, they are remembering 9/11. They are not selling a 9/11 bear. You design the bear. I’ve never been in their shops, but I don’t think they have pre-made bears. If you want a military bear, you choose the material to make it military. Their brand is about building the bear as you want it.
