The trailer for Lucky You
  • This movie features a cameo appearance by our colleague Silver Dollar Sam, the professional poker player who used to write nothing-wild.com. (He's credited as Sam O'Connor)
  • "In 'Lucky You,' director Curtis Hanson ('L.A. Confidential,' 'Wonder Boys,' '8 Mile') brings us a story based in the world of high-stakes Las Vegas poker. Huck Cheever (Eric Bana) is a blaster - a player who goes all out, all the time. But in his personal relationships, Huck plays it tight, expertly avoiding emotional commitments and long-term expectations. When Huck sets out to win the main event of the 2003 World Series of Poker - and the affections of Billie Offer (Drew Barrymore), a young singer from Bakersfield - there is one significant obstacle in his path: his father, L.C. Cheever (Robert Duvall), the poker legend who abandoned Huck's mother years ago. As these two rivals progress toward a final showdown at the poker table, Huck learns that to win in the games of life and poker, he must try to play cards the way he has been living his life and live his life the way he has been playing cards."

The Ming-Na Measure: A handy way of taking failure's temperature
  • We need this. There is no sure way to predict a failure since Jennifer Rubin gave up film acting to take a restaurant hostessing job.
  • Sadly (or perhaps gladly), Bryan Brown doesn't make enough movies to be a reliable barometer.

Top 100 best places to live in the USA
  • Number one is Fort Collins, Colorado, and number one among major cities (300,000+)is Colorado Springs.
  • My home town of Austin, Texas finished second among major cities. I've lived just about everywhere and I think Austin is just about perfect except it has no ocean and the summers are a bit too hot. But then again if it had cool summers and was on the coast it would have a population of several million, and might suck, so maybe it is perfect. I suppose San Diego might be a nicer overall place to live, but Texas has low taxes (no state income tax), few yuppies, and affordable property, so flip a coin.

Top Ten Most Violent Playground Games
  • Brings back a lot of memories. Actually, the list should include British Bulldog, which produced at least one good injury during every lunch period of my childhood. The best part is when there is only one guy left, and he has to try to make it across the field with every other guy trying to tackle him. I made it across once, by using an unorthodox technique, bulling through and hitting the tacklers one-by-one, head-on, ramming them with my shoulders and forearms, or just punching them in the face, instead of trying to avoid them. I managed to avoid any situations where I had to confront too many guys at one time, and the more chickenshit guys just avoided me altogether. Finally, a guy named Dan Pietscher, the best athlete in our school, after having been knocked down once, caught up to me from behind. He was much faster than me and could have knocked me off-balance if I tried to run away from him to the goal line. My solution? I just stopped dead in my tracks, turned around and let him try to bring me down face-to-face. He wasn't strong enough to bring me down, and I wasn't quick enough to keep him from getting his arms around me, so I turned around and dragged him through the snow, as he held on to my legs, for the last ten yards. I was the only guy ever to accomplish this feat in our schoolyard, and I still consider it the greatest accomplishment of my youth! I can still remember every detail as if it were yesterday, including the pummeling I took when I had to turn around and try it again in the opposite direction, and got under a pile-up! Years later, the younger kids from my neighborhood would come up to me in high school and ask if I was the same guy who once "ran the gauntlet" in British Bulldog.
  • I was so good at that game that I thought I might play fullback in high school, but I was just too frickin' slow, and you can't really run over 275-pound defensive linemen the way I used to run through normal-sized guys, so I never played high school ball at all!

MPAA sues the wrong guy.
  • They brought one of their extortion suits against a millionaire computer whiz, and he's willing to pay millions in legal costs rather than give them their blackmail money. People just pay up, even if they are innocent, because legal fees are greater than settlement costs. Not one suit has ever gone to trial.

Speedy self-service checkout may lower the costs for retail chains, but it also lowers sales!
  • The reason is that self-service checkout has a significantly detrimental effect on impulse purchases. People aren't waiting in line as long, and they are constantly busy scanning their items. That means no time to be tempted by tabloids or candy bars.
