    What laptop brands are good?

    I'm rocking a Asus G74S gaming laptop which is on the more expensive side (just over $2000) but I've had it 3 years and it survived a 8 month Navy deployment with me, and is still going strong.

    Should I be wierded out by this "job offer"?

    13th Warrior: an under-rated classic?!

    YES!!! I'm surprised to see this movie mentioned here. The 13th Warrior is one of my favorite movies, I used to watch it all the time with my dad when I was younger, I consider it one of the ultimate "bro bonding" films... Also cavemen and fire serpents...

    Poll: Do you use a 12 or 24 hour clock?

    Well ,i'm in the military so i tend to use a 24 hour clock for everything, even if I have a 12 hour clock I'll just automatically convert it in my head. It gets kinda annoying when my regular friends ask me what time is is and I tell them it's 1430. all those weird looks...
