    I know the speech isn't for 4 more hours but this ****ing-ridiculous-only-in-Washington-bipartisan-seating-******** is annoying me. How about you?

    Do any of these guys get it?

    So they'll sit together for a whole two hours.

    This just shows how stupid our country (population), media, and politicians really are. THIS is somehow a big media story this week. I've gotten to the point where this kind of hackery in our news legitimately angers me. :mad:

    What exactly makes you so angry? The attempted show of bipartisanship, or "the media."

    I always got a kick out of one side standing in applause while the other side sat in stone silence.

    I'll miss that. :(

    But I think I'll skip the whole thing this year.

    I have better things to do... video games to play.

    (I am totally stuck on a level of geoDefense. It's like... impossible.)

    I won't be able to watch the Biggest Loser in its entirety. :(

    I look forward to these speeches don't get me wrong.

    TBH, I'm hoping for a TOTUS malfunction. Doubt it though.

    I have both. But I'm taking about regular.

    I have Field Runners, but I didn't like it so much. I have to admit, I only tried one level. Should I give it another go?

    I prefer FR due to its open field approach. The fixed path setup on geodefence is restricting IMO.

    Give it a shot, but of course different stokes for different folks...

    Just skim the transcript, much easier than listening to the whole thing.

    (Sorry about the massive block of text, with no paragraphs, kind of hard to skim.)

    Did I hear Chip Reid correctly when he compared the Tucson shootings to our very own Sputnik?
