    I love Maxwell, almost as much as the Camel!

    Bokeh It's a photography term related to the way areas in a photography will blur when out of focus. It is a handy thing when you want to separate the subject of a photo from a busy background.

    You are correct. They just reaired the episode this morning, and that is how he (and the graphics) explained it, I must have misunderstood it the first time I saw it. He did say that after looking at all of the loan paperwork, it was a business mistake, and not fraud, but it was still the wrong thing to do.

    I think it's time to put that box in the recycling bin.

    S03.E14: Showdown At Standard Burger

    Years ago - probably 20 years by now - I remember meeting some friends for lunch at a burger place in Midtown Manhattan, and it was $15+ for a burger and fries.

    I took driver's ed in high school - I went to a Catholic HS, which didn't have it available, so I took it at another Catholic HS in the diocese. We used some generic Buick sedan (this was around 1977), automatic, power steering and brakes, the usual. Drove it 15-20 minutes a week in class. The rest of my practice was in my Dad's 1969 Plymouth sedan (considered a mid-size back then) with a slant-6 and three-on-the-tree and no power anything. I took my test drive in that about a month after turning 17 - the minimum age you could get your license in NYS if you took a driver's ed class. When I turned 18 and started college, Dad got another car and I ended up with that Plymouth beast, drove it all through college, and wish I still had it today!

    My understanding, from what Marcus said, was that they used the loan money to fulfill the POs, but when the customers paid, rather than using that money to pay off the loans, they used it for other business expenses.

    I'll admit I was never a fan of either of them, but I found the documentary fascinating - brought back many old memories!
  9. Carvana is selling used cars, so even if you track down one with everything you want on it, it is going to be different from others of the same make/model/options. For that reason alone, I wouldn't buy one without test driving the specific car I'm going to buy. I would rather do that before, rather than after, buying it.

    I love it. Of course, as a guy, I'm perpetually 12 years old, so there's that.😉

    Because then, sometime in a future episode they need to address it, and people here (and no, I'm not pointing at you) will complain if they don't. Yes, it's not true-to-life, but it wraps up the storyline so we know we won't have it hanging over her in the future. I was more annoyed that they used stock footage of a VC-25 (the 747 normally used as Air Force 1 for POTUS) rather than a VC-32 (the 757 used by VPOTUS). I don't know that they ever used the VC-32 for VPOTUS travel, especially domestically.

    I wear shoes around the house most of the time. Not fancy ones, I don't really have any real fancy shoes, but more often than not, I have shoes on at home.

    The West Wing

    Sorry, I hadn't seen that page before. You should probably send a message to the mods to look at it.
  14. I'm sure they are writing him a big check, and he does seem to have fun with them, so why not? I doubt he is a customer, but not all (if any) celebrity spokespersons are users of the product/service they are pitching.

    The West Wing

    It is - it is listed in the "Other Dramas" group in the "Dramas" category, but it is listed alphabetically under "T" for "The West Wing".
