Probably not, but it may be the luckiest on a major professional tour.

How do this many things: a) go wrong, b) get caught on camera, c) get sent in to be compiled? The video is roughly four days long!!!

It's old but it's still good:
As for me, my politics are somewhere in the middle—and then way outside both wings. I believe in the death penalty, especially for pro-lifers, child molesters, those opposed to gay marriage, and for stupid dancing in the end zone. I believe in the abolition of estate taxes and the Pickens Plan. I'd lower the legal drinking age and raise the driving age to 18 nationwide, make Kinky Friedman governor of Texas, and make all schools, public and private, start earlier with one hour of physical exercise.

This video seems to be the most highly recommended method. Turn the coat inside out at each sleeve (without inverting the sleeves themselves), fold it at the midpoint, and then fold it halfway in the other direction.
And yes, this goes in the "Golf" or "PGA" group since I'll need to do this in the next few months when I go to Port St. Lucie.

My father, who had a lung transplant last year, apparently had a rough weekend, was admitted to the hospital, and my mother and sister withdrew support, resulting in his death at 3:22pm today, three days after my 35th birthday. My father was 64.
It's no secret to those who know me well (a very small group, admittedly) that the best word to describe the relationship I've had with my father for the past eight years or so has been "none." It's the way he wanted things to be, and I made peace with it long ago. My father, for all intents and purposes, died a long time ago.
Memorial services will be held next week.

When that failed, they decided that it was unlikely that anything Malloy ingested was going to kill him, so the Murder Trust decided to freeze him to death. On a night when the temperature reached -14 °F (-26 °C), Malloy drank until he passed out, was carried to a park, dumped in the snow, and had five gallons (19 L) of water poured on his bare chest. Nevertheless, Malloy reappeared the following day for his drink. The next attempt on his life came when they hit him with Green's taxi, moving at 45 miles per hour (72 km/h). This put Malloy in the hospital for three weeks with broken bones. The gang presumed he was dead but was unable to collect the policy on him. When he again appeared at the bar, they decided on one last approach.

I wear TRUE shoes everywhere, but these might be nice for wearing around the house or something…

I guess I can't tell people I'm still in my "early 30s" anymore, can I?

I'm seriously considering purchasing Final Cut Pro X, but I have one quick question: how good are the stock effects (title screens, lower thirds type stuff/chirons, etc.)?
iMovie is fine for basic stuff, but at the end of the day everybody knows you've used iMovie.
Does Final Cut Pro X come with a decent selection of stock effects, transitions, title screens, etc.?
Update: I'm a moron. There's a free trial. Duh.

The Sand Trap, a forum I own but which also runs on a platform that I can't tweak myself, has been having some weird issues lately.
As few as two or three web pages will beachball Safari. Scrolling via any method (keyboard shortcuts, clicking in the scroll bar, two-finger scrolling) often fails, pages won't load graphics outside of their original viewing size when you can scroll, the app will repeatedly ask to reload all available tabs even when there are two or three tabs open and you simply click "reload" in one of them, etc.
su to root and run
fs_usage | grep PAGE you can see that something in the pages is causing
I've tried disabling plugins. I've tried disabling extensions. The latter didn't work at all, and the former seemed to work1 before it became obvious that it did not. So it doesn't appear to be a Flash issue, though it may boost the odds slightly.
This only happens, seemingly, to administrators. It seems to behave normally for others (moderators, regular users, guests).
So my question: how do I troubleshoot this? How can I find out what script or whatever is causing the problem? Giving what seems to be a memory explosion, is it possible to find out what's causing Safari to beachball with often very few web pages open?
- Though I was already nervous and thus opening fewer pages at a time.↩
