I didn't watch Dexter while it was on.  Didn't think I'd be interested. 

Decided to check it out on Netflix.  8 episodes in, and I'm addicted, despite predicting three plot twists already.

Just make sure you bail after the end of season 4.
Wow, half of the series is crap?  That's a shame.

There are some decent moments in 5 and 6, but neither season has an ending that would serve well as a capstone for the series, the way season 4's would. As for the actual series finale, it's unwatchable.

I would not leave my tablet lying around at the gym. If I could leave my phone or whatever in my locker and listen to Bluetooth that would be the BOMB!

Standard metal lockers would block any radio, they would have to be made out of wood or plastic to let radio signals through.  Bluetooth also has limited range, so even if the lockers allowed the signal to escape they would have to be in the same room as the equipment (or maybe one room away for the most powerful bluetooth).

Darn. Well it was a good dream.

If you don't have some, you could buy some old sweat pants or a hoodie (from a resale shop), make them look dirty and sweaty and - while in the locker room when no one was around - stick the tablet in there and turn on whatever music you wanted while still 'hidden'.  Then, when you were out working out, it would be nearby and playing, but it would be less likely for people to touch the sweat pants or hoodie that looked actively used, so less likely you'd lose it. :)

Protip: if you're REALLY introverted, as I am, call centers are incredibly exhausting. I haven't felt this drained in a LONG time, and I don't get any time off till Wednesday. :gouge:

Was watching Sherlock series two and just realized that the two actually fight each other in the Hobbit.

That's why the line "We could be friends, if circumstances were different" (it was something like that) is hilarious.

From The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug. It was a really out of place line.

The first few cuts off Juno Reactor's 2013 CD The Golden Sun of the Great East could easily work as part of an updated Blade Runner soundtrack (not that there's anything wrong with Vangelis' work, just this kinda' reminds me of it).

look, I get it; despite my intelligence, no one will never understand why I like the Twilight movies, but I do.

So, when I say that Breaking Down part 2 was REALLY FUCKING STUPID, you should listen, because neither my intelligence or childlike faith excuses that piece o shite.

I am going to watch Paul.

But Breaking Dawn Part two was HILARIOUS! K-Stew got to try to act like she was thinking about orgasming and Dakota Fanning got eaten by a wolf. What's not to like about that?

Great Idea! I have a Cheerwine clock in my bathroom that fogs up after a hot shower but your idea is pretty cool! :o

Would that prevent it from fogging up, though? Just because it's waterproof, that just weans water can't get into it.
