  1. I would put it like this....Either the people who worked for walmart wanted to be heros, or they take their job really, really, really seriously. In other words, even though they were brave, it doesn't exactly mean they had a good reason to fight back.
  2. Because Wal-Mart is not the juggernaut they were a few years back. But most shoplifters won't pull a gun when they get caught. Not only is Wal-Mart failing morally for not backing up their employees who made a split-second decision, but they're also failing at loss prevention because they've basically told all their retail employees the following: Don't get involved. Just let thieves take whatever they want. Damn, Wal-Mart still sucks. I wish Costco was closer so I could not renew my Sam's Club membership. How are they failing at loss prevention? do you REALLY think they are going to tell their workers to try and keep the robber from stealing, if it means risking people's lives? it's so much easier to just have a one time loss that probably won't even affect them, than to have people get shot at in their store. Honestly, fighting back with an armed robber over something like that is just stupid, and not fair for the other people who choose to be safe and let the robber leave. it's not like one robbery is going to set WALMART back at all
  3. this is more of a rap but oh well TPR--- im posting in this thread the word "park" on the top is red theres crazy people here and lame people here people who probably shouldn't drink beer there's rob alvey and wes i could beat both at chess suck ups and nerds they put me at a loss for words cause lifes not about parks or sarcastic remarks bout a company like vekoma hey whats that bad aroma its the virgins in the back studying the dimensions of a coaster track
  4. Learn how to use your camera, first. Then learn what shutter speed, ISO, and your apeture settings do. Things to know- -An apeture number like 4.0 will make a more shallow depth of field (less in focus) and let more light in. An apeture number like f/16 will let less light in, but will make a deeper depth of field (more in focus) The combination of these three will expose your photo -ISO bumps the light up, the higher the number. But be aware that the higher you go, the quality of your photo goes down. Especially with long exposure times (shutter speed) Usually people use a higher ISO to get faster shutter speeds if it's too dark, or the opposite if it's too bright Idk I could go on but I have a feeling you're gonna read half of this and then decide to give up and just use auto -_-
  5. Good luck keeping this thead open According to my calculations, a mod is 75% likely to jump at the chance to lock a thread also nb4lock
  6. Sitting on your butt, reading a forum all day is ALSO bad for you!
  7. ^ French presses are cool. You can make the coffee so strong with them. It always gives them a thick, smoothness kinda. I don't know how else to explain it haha. But I love grinding up some good coffee and using the press, I just don't do it every morning. Only on occasions when I have good coffee/time
  8. I think we should all take a moment to appreciate that we live in a country that doesn't have insane rules like this college!
  9. Whatever you do, do NOT assault them. I've heard that one of the ways that they make money is by getting assaulted and then suing for it. On the plus side, this couldn't have been done without them: That's a Micheal Moore thing. I stopped watching when I heard that gay people had to be scared of getting arrested in America... Sorry but if you take all this stuff seriously, you really need to learn about other parts of the world. His movies and stuff are extremely biased!
  10. You should probably stay home from school. It's a good excuse
  11. That's a lot of feet. I once hiked 4,800 feet in a day (double that if you count down hill) ...It was quite a view at the end.
  12. Hey those pictures are pretty awesome. What kind of lens/camera do you have? They look really sharp and crisp Thanks! At that time, I was using a Canon Rebel T1i... That camera is gone now though. Was great camera, but I upgraded. Most of those shots were with my 70-200mm f/4L IS lens, and with my (old) 17-85mm lens. Right now, I use a Canon 7D, along with the 24-105mm f/4L IS, 70-200mm f/4L IS, 50mm f/1.8 II, Tokina 12-24mm f/4 DX, and Tamron 1.4x Pro teleconverter. If you want to check out some other photos of mine, check out http://www.flickr.com/invertalon Appreciate the comments! Ill look to post up some more CP ones here. That's cool. I added you as a contact btw, on flickr. I almost bought the 70-200 f/4L but I ended up buying an xbox instead I have a 40D with the 50mm 1.8, and the 17-85mm also. All my better pictures are the older ones. I don't know why, but I think I've slowly got worse at photography haha
  13. How is my point invalid? I said curling might take a lot of physical fitness to be really good at it, and you shouldn't make ignorant assumptions on things. That's my point. How hard is it to understand? Apparently really hard for you who are challenging me on a simple statement that most normal people would agree with. Whatever though I will let you (beemerboy) sit and think about how clever and funny you are for beating me in an argument by not responding to anything I said and insulting me. Real mature
  14. Hey those pictures are pretty awesome. What kind of lens/camera do you have? They look really sharp and crisp
  15. That's a nice picture.. A thing I learned from shooting something that has a lot white, (like in that picture) it's always good to overexpose it a lot. The camera's meter see's all that white and thinks the scene is really bright so it underexposes the picture, and it will give you a correct exposure reading and you will end up with a dark depressing snow scene instead of a bright, happy snow scene. I forgot how much compensation you need, but I would try one stop and higher and see what looks good from there. For sunsets/sunrises, if you want a really detailed sky, undercompensate. I learned all this stuff from a book
  16. See, I don't think biathlon is even close to curling. Sure, shooting is more of a skill than anything, but cross country skiing, even at a modest pace, is pretty intensive work, yet alone as fast as they do in the Olympics LOL @ Scott, who pretty much ended any 'debate' You helped end the debate by not responding to what I said once I made a valid point. I don't get you guys but whatever Curling sucks
  17. That means, you are arguing a point that no one here has disputed. Congratulations you win, it is common sense that 99% of what you do in life can be done more easier if you are in better physical condition. Just so that I can win also, I would like to state that ice is cold and when it warms up it becomes wet. I have to go, Curling on on right now! You need to read a couple pages back. This all started with parktrips saying that curling doesn't require you to be fit. And then I said don't be so quick to make assumptions about something like that..Then some people disagreed with me and backed up parktrips on his possibly ignorant statement. I have been saying this whole time that I believe olympic curlers are in tip top shape because they need every possible advantage....I don't even see why anyone would disagree with me on this. It seems like comon sense.
  18. You guys don't seem to get it. I'm talking about how being fit could play a role in how well you can curl. How is that so hard to understand? I mean I'm not trying to be a jerk but...I wrote a huge post about how being fit helps with a lot more things than people think but you guys keep telling me that you admit curling takes a lot of skill..which doesn't have anything to do with what I have been saying. Am I not wording things right?
  19. Seriously, you underestimated the strain you'd put on your body by riding a dirtbike? Hmmm. Perhaps you need to start using the scale I use to determine a questionable "sport" or a game's level of physical fitness needed. I call it the Octogenarian Scale. Just look at something and ask yourself, "Can an 80 year old play this?" If the answer is yes, then it's not very physically demanding, and possibly not worthy of being an olympic event. Some random examples: Golf- Yes, 80 year olds can, and do play this every day. Bowling - Yes, they can, and they do. Dirtbiking - I'm gonna be honest and say I haven't seen many octogenarians pulling off the "double pits to chesty" recently. Bass Fishing - Yes, and sadly, many consider this a "sport." Shuffleboard - Goes without saying. Nascar - Have you seen old people drive? Curling - While their replaced hips may not allow them to look like a pro when releasing the stone, I'm gonna say it's not impossible for them to play. On a side note, I was happy to see the female snowboarder fail again. Scott "I still like Curling though" B. But to do curling on an olympic level? I mean that's the best of the best, and you need every single little advantage when you're in the olympics. When you're physically fit you can do things a lot better.. Like you have more balance and I'm sure there are little things like that when you need to put a perfect amount of force on that thing you push. Yes I know it sounds funny to hear that you need to be really strong to do something that's really easy, but when you're strong everything comes a lot easier. Even things like throwing a frisbee well. Anyone can play that game...Anyone can also speed skate. Doesn't mean they will be good at it. Also Nascar... All the drivers look really fit to me.. And that's probably because when you're racing at the very edge of what your car can handle, you need to be extremely precise with how to move your wheel. A little too much and you are going to spin out at those speeds. Which is why being fit could benefit you in Nascar. You have better control if you're strong. And yes, dirtbiking is like skiing but with huge weights on your poles. As long as you're actually doing something, and not just riding back and fourth on level ground. When you do things on a dirtbike you need to be able to control your bike and toss it around...Dirtbikes are heavy
  20. I think we are just all a little upset that we have to see Canada on TV.
  21. Mad? No, it's funny to hear the guy behind you in line talking about the "500 foot coaster in Japan" or how the water dummies got decapitated when they were testing Maverick. Well laughing, or whatever. Just saying when you make assumptions about something you don't know a lot about you TOO might have people laughing at you. You don't wanna be that person do you? Not to mention that someone saying there is a coaster that's 500 feet tall isn't that crazy of a thing to say. It's not like the average person is going to look up stats on a roller coaster they heard about. It's hard to guess how tall something is if you don't have other things to compare it to. I too would believe a roller coaster was 500 feet tall if I weren't so into them
  22. Well I'm definitely not a fanboy of curling..I don't even know the rules or anything haha.. But I've thought lots of things didn't require physical fitness when it did. Like going dirtbiking for the first time; I was so sore the next day. I'm also all for making fun of the weird sports though, but deep down I have a lot of respect for it and don't like to make assumptions. Just how some of you get really mad when a "gp" makes an assumption on a roller coaster company or something and they turn out to be wrong. Anyways I was watching the speed skating the other night when the three Koreans were in the lead and two of them crashed. Even though the Americans won 2nd and 3rd I felt pretty bad for the Koreans...
  23. Exactly. And I'm saying that maybe you need to be really strong to be able to do everything perfectly. You don't have to lift something really heavy or go really fast for being strong to play a role in how well you can do something...
  24. Anytime. I'll ask my doctor if he thinks I should add curling to my workout regimen. I imagine that sweeping is comparable to legging out an infield single. And you would probably suck at it due to your crappy form due to you not being an olympic athlete.
  25. of course, I mean realistically there aren't many winter sports a normal person couldn't do, and at least Curling requires absolutely no physical fitness! You should try it first before you make a statement like that! I agree..
