  1. Whoa! What if Todd puts Jesse into a Woodchipper!? And then this!!
  2. or a cosmic comeuppance... Say what? LOL Am I the only one who finds it mildly entertaining when a writer breaks out the thesaurus to try and spice up a literary?
  3. I was trying to find this and finally did... This is from Season 1, Episode 3. I've always thought that this flashback - would have some sort of reveal. And I just felt like Vince never really showed the viewer what was going on. 'What about the soul?' That was the missing element to fully balance out the equation of life (I believe)... I haven't watched season 1 since I downloaded it on iTunes several years ago. But this scene.... I want to know if he figures out what the missing element is or goes back to Gretchen to address why he left her.
  4. Agreed. I don't see a need for him to be in any further episodes. The same for Badger and Skinny Pete.... While they were entertaining. I just don't think they need to do anything more (especially in the limited window of time - we're going into the last episode) to spend time on these characters. For me... There is definitely a glaring '?' why Walt went the path he did in life. Maybe I simply need to go back and re-watch season 1, but I don't have a clear grasp on why he wasn't more successful in life. I think he held a huge grudge and never let that go. And in a way, it held him
  5. Thank you! So I didn't dream it... I was trying to remember the damn episode where that was touched on. But was too lazy to Google it, or go find it. Also, from listening to 515's podcast today... I think he is going to officially on Gray Matter Technologies. It seemed like Bryan and Vince were hinting that - that wasn't going to be the last we saw of those two characters (Gretchen and Elliot). Perhaps there is a darker secret on why Walt was just a Chemistry teacher?
  6. That Rashad Johnson article makes me want to lose my lunch...
  7. The chess game, and setup was already described by the writers of Ozymandias in the podcast here: http://www.amctv.com/shows/breaking-bad/insider-podcast-season-5 Listen to Episode 514 (Ozymandias). The writers talk about how they had one of the guys who was part of the BB set crew / directors put together the layout of the chess game in advance. And they strategically placed the pieces to show that the 'King' - the white piece was nearly in check and was nearly out of moves. They didn't talk about tying Schwartz + White together = Grey Matter.... So I think that could
  8. Sorry, you're right... He didn't win it personally... He was a contributor... But still. Wouldn't that be a pretty big accolade in the world of science? I'd think he could use that to parlay himself into a sizeable gig elsewhere?? [[Speaking of Sandia Labs... Funny story... I'm in the technology space (no, not space like -- outer space)... But there is a small regional trade show which highlights silicon/hardware/software that goes into various embedded applications. And this tradeshow travels to various metros, one being ABQ. And I have the luxury of covering the ABQ market from
  9. I always wanted to learn more about what really happened to Walt - and why he went from a Nobel Prize winner, to a High School Chemistry teacher. Seems like a pretty significant step backwards... They only have ~ 75 minutes to wrap the show. And of that, ~ 55 minutes will be the show (I'm guessing) based on ad allocation. Here's what I'd like to see go down... 1.) Walt goes back to ABQ (flash forward already confirms this) gets the M60 and ricin. 2.) Forces Lydia to tell him where Todd and the Aryan gang bangers are cooking meth.... She tells him. He then pops her w

    Few more comments... I love that I can stream my movies/tv shows and music from iTunes - and don't have to take up space on my phones storage. That is pretty clutch. I don't like that the phone seems to be burning my battery pretty heavily. I need to go back and look at my settings and see if something was tweaked. Because I have the mophie juice pack - and my phone was down to 80% when I started typing this... With my mophie - I've never seen the iPhone 5 not have 100% until way, way, waaaaaaaaaay later in the evening (after a full days use). Seems like the battery is getting taxe
  11. I listened to Tiger the other day in an interview before the Championship tournament... And they talked about his game coming into the week... He said he has been striking the ball well, but his putter has failed him. And they mentioned a stat where he had 7 three putts in last weeks four rounds. I mention this because I only saw a few shots today as I've been busy here at work... But I saw him miss some shortish/make-able putts. What is up with this dudes putter? Has he lost his magic with the wand? I don't remember the last time he had a solid putting round since the Firestone/Bri
  12. Ok. So it tilts left by ~ 5 to 10*. Thank you.
  13. saevel25, I guess we can agree to disagree on the spine tilting left at the top? Edited to show more accurate photo: From what I've been taught, and learned there is a leftward tilt of the spine to get the left shoulder low and hip low and in, and the right shoulder and hip high and deep to create extension. In order to keep the left arm straight. You need extensor action. The right arm/hand PP1/2/3 pulling. This creates depth which is required by the right hip and shoulder. And the shoulders turn in a vertical and horizontal arch around the spine. In order to make a full turn it is
  14. My desired ball flight is a push draw. Thus I aim slightly right of my target, and try and swing out or right too. Please look at the ball flight laws. Understand what makes the ball curve. First is face. Then is path or swing direction. Thus, the answer is you aim based on the type of curve or shot you're trying to hit.

    Lol how many freaking golf apps do you have Stretch?!
  16. In a Purestrike/Five Simple Keys swing they promote Key #1 a steady head. This is accomplished by a swing pattern which revolves around centered pivot. In order to have a steady head, or centered pivot, the spine angle at address is neutral. But given with forward shaft lean, forward press of the hands, this will cause the left shoulder to be a hair higher than the right. The weight will be 50/50 or 60/50 (left foot vs right foot) at address. So your pelvis and hips will be neutral. On the backswing, your body in order to keep a steady head will require extension of the right side, to enab

    Upgraded to 7. Looks very 'Google' and 'Android' GUI like. I like it in that fashion. Not really digging the way they handle some of the basic gestures. But I'm sure I'll adjust and before long it will be second nature. Oh, and the keyboard always has capital letters. Not sure I'm digging that. Forces me to look and see if I have hit the caps lock.
  18. No, you told me to breakout my S&T; videos, and keep the weight forward! I keed! I keed!! Sorry for bringing Key #2 into focus on that post above... Yes, you are 100% correct, you just said if that's my FEEL like its on the left, to keep the centered hip turn.... Then roll with it. My bad for creating the confusion... Ok so now lets dissect some other goods.... Yes, I guess the shaft doesn't look too laid off when depicted side by side with Mac vs Zach in Jedi Knight fashion like that! (Look at those pants! .......... LOL)
  19. Here is the latest set of swings... I left some pre-shot rehearsals into the video, which can be found in the first minute of the video. The pre-shot rehearsal is what I'm trying to blend into my actual swing. In particular the way I load the accumulators in the rehearsal - and the shaft is more vertical instead of being laid off. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get a swing captured where I nail that move - yet. I feel like the Pipoe is helping me with the elbow spacing a lot. I don't know... Maybe I'm too excited, but I feel like I'm actually making s
  20. Ok, I apologize... I wrote what I wrote, and then Google 'Breaking Bad Timeline of Events' and this is the first article that popped up... http://www.theatlanticwire.com/entertainment/2013/09/after-year-youve-had-glaring-flaw-breaking-bad-chronology/68987/ After reading the article, I'm glad I'm not the only one who has some issues with the timeline of the show. And GD, I had to laugh when you used 24 as a reference.... GOOOD POINT!! Oh, and here is the question... Walt has a shaved head in episode 60.... Holly is 18mo old. So going back to the timeline.
  21. I listened to the Podcast last night about Season 5, Episode 14 (which was amazing - and is the 60th episode of the series). This was the first podcast I've listened to where the writers and directors talk about the show (or any show for that matter - I've never listened to one of these)... And they went into some interesting details about how they filmed certain things, and pulled off different scenes using various techniques and methods. It was pretty interesting, and they definitely gave me insight into the state of the characters, and what they wanted the audience to feel. But on
  22. First, if you play in a lot of tournaments - real tournaments, I can tell you that the scenario that you laid out above is actually the polar opposite of what I'd expect to see. Meaning that his/her tournament scores would likely be higher (possibly many strokes higher) than his/her casual round scores. The reason why I believe this? Simple. Tournament pressure is difficult - plus the tracks are typically setup much more difficult than a casual round will be. Regardless if the guy is a sandbagger, or a vanity capper... If someone can play well in under tournament conditions/st
