Not knowing your situation you should never rule out going back to school.

I recently went back to school and it saved me from a life of minimum wage jobs and dead end careers.

I say do whatever you can to find a place that suits you. If you don't need more school to get a job that makes you happy then that's fine.


When I went back there were people younger than me and older than me in school. I know all this sounds corny but it's increasing difficult to get anywhere w/o some sort of degree. My cousin is awesome w/ computers and has a lot of experience to put on a resume for networking and IT stuff, but because he doesn't have a degree he's constantly passed up for people that do and relegated to temp help. (though he has been working for Playboy for a while :) )

My advice: go back to school, take out loans, do whatever. You don't want to be in your 60s with bad insurance, no retirement options, and doing manual labor.

That one day in March when it was really low must have killed you... the next day when you were back to normal.

I'm under the impression that it was the Wii Fit board having a bad day that time and not me.

Thanks for all the congrats and encouragement all. This is probably the slimmest I've been at out of something like 10 years, so I hope I can at least keep my weight the way it is.

I'm around 5'10" myself. I got started on my weight loss purely through controlling my diet. I signed up for one of those diet things (In my case, Nutrisystem) and stuck to it pretty strictly for a few months...In retrospect, there's a lot of things I did incorrectly while losing weight, in particular a lack of exercise. I'm trying to change that around now. I eat way more now than when I started my diet, but I also exercise more. Hopefully, that will get rid of my unsightly belly over time.

If you're into eating healthy and like cooking check out recipes by mark bittman. Good shit. Not all of his stuff is "diet" food but it should all be healthy enough

I don't know if any of you guys have read about this before, but a couple of days ago in the Hardcore Gaming 101 blog they posted the infamous urban legend of Shin Megami Tensei for the Super Famicom.

The urban legend of Shin Megami Tensei - TURN IT OFF NOW

If that happened to me while playing a game I'd probably shit a few bricks then jump out a window

The crust makes or breaks the pizza for me, so I never understood people who didn't eat the crusts. But speaking of pizza, I can't eat it anymore. After making pizzas for three years, I never want to eat pizza again.

I know what you mean! I used to work at a gas station and now I never want to buy gas again

Finished single player. Man that was fun.

Does anyone know if there's anything to playing 1p again besides getting missed secrets and such?

favorite local (IL, Wi and MI) microbrews


1. goose island (the brewprubs. great variety and decent food)

2. half acre (1/2 price growler refills on tuesday. yummy beer but hard to find at stores and a limited selection. nice looking beer cans)

3. Two Brothers (awesome beers but since the brewery is far away I had to rate the other two higher)

4. Three Floyds

5. Capital

6. Point

7. Sprecher

8. New Glarus

No. But I'm in charge here when it comes to Starmongoose's viewing habits.

You have responsibility over his shoes, hair, and restaurant etiquette

Maybe I should check out this Community thing

Start from season 1. Season 2 started off sort of weak but it's come through in fine form.

Also, don't listen to Dice.
