razor, rippy

(no subject)

Hey folks.
i have a pair of computer speakers with a sub that i plug into my computer to listen to music and as long as they have power they get radio reception. sometimes it interfers with my music quality. does anyone know anything i can do to get rid of this.

Centipedes, eww!

So this morning I got up to take a shower, and upon turning on the water, a 1.5" centipede type creature went shooting out of the drain! The little bastard was fast too! He kept trying to run up the side of the tub and I kept knocking him down back toward the drain, but he wasn't giving up! I think I finally smashed him and he went down the drain. I'm not completely sure since he was behind the shower curtain. I doubt those things are harmful anyway. Just a bit creepy-crawly!

Anyone in DPer's had this happen or know anything about these bugs? Like how they get into the drains etc?

hey there. i was wondering if anyone knew where i could get use of a canoe just for a weekend for a whitewater canoe course. the trick is that it can't be fiberglass (or wood) and that is seeming very difficult to find. do you know where i could get one (for pretty cheap, too) or maybe you have one that you'd be willing to "rent" to me? let me know! thanks so much.
No No

Thank You

Thanks to littlebluedog for hosting a nice little gathering at VooDoo Donuts last night! Even though I had nothing to do with the original bet, it was nice of you to buy donuts for those that showed up! I had a great time until the umm, band started playing! Then I got really claustrophobic and anxious and had to leave. For those that did not make it: Ha ha nyah nyah, I got a donut and you didn't!

I know you've seen this before, just reminding you, since it's coming up soon!

01) drink beer or coffee
02) have a nice screen fro the games, sound a big plus (wacky charles barkely)

I am going to be taking some friends to see Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy, and was wanting to go out afterward...does anyone know of any cool bars or clubs that sell the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster? Not the real one like in the book...but something of a novelty on the menu perhaps?

yay nerds unite!

Is it stupid to buy a rather new Honda in the $10-13k range?

I need to buy a car like...yesterday, and I need something reliable, gas efficient, etc. I've heard nothing but positive things about Hondas. Anyone had any particularly good experiences with Thomason? Tonkin? I know it maybe be the DP'er in me, but I think I've put off car shopping for so long because I have to leave the metro boundaries. :/ I wish there was a good dealership in town. Doesn't seem to be the case.

I want something made in the '99-03 range, automatic, four-door (cheaper for the insurance, I think?), under 70k on the odometer. Again, hoping not to pay anything above 10k, but I'll spring for 13 if it seems like a good investment. My family, however, thinks it's absurd I'm spending "so much" money on a car, being that I'm "only" 22...but don't Honda's have a relatively good resale value? I'll quit asking questions now, and wait for some sage advice. Thanks! :)
