The Killers were great. Everyone went nuts when they came on. However, we waited all day in like 90+ degrees listening to mediocre bands and the Killers didn't even do an encore. That was the only disappointment.


Kinda makes you wonder why aynone should pay for an "education." After all, given enough time in life to develop a proper perspective, it becomes obvious that anything which is theorized or even "proven" by our esteemed intelligentsia, is usually disproven within a decade... and a decade after that, the proof that disproved the previous truth, is also proven false...It kinda seems that going to university means that you are paying GOBS of money while learning from a bunch of idiots who learned their nonsense from another bunch of idiots, and so on... and so on...It also seems to me that the mechanic's rule of "tighty righty, lefty loosy" holds far more wisdom that ought to be passed on than the volumes of nonsense a modern university seems capable of teaching. Btw. If witnessing violence on TV, or playing violent video games could make one violent... well, one wonders how people like my parents, who grew up as children/adolescents in Nazi Occupied Europe, could manage to live out their lives without killing aynone - and yet, they were exposed to much REAL violence during their formative years, as were millions and millions of other children who did not turn into crackpot murderers...But, I guess the answer to that is similar to the academic answer of why parents should not spank misbehaved children in the modern day... BECAUSE THINGS ARE DIFFERENT TODAY THEN THEY WERE BACK THEN! Now there is some academic logic for you! Of course a smacking on the bottom worked back then, because children were so different back then that they were born with green skin and six arms... pulleeze! Thanks for the brains, Academia. Where would everone be today without your dumbing them down?


REALLY bad back pain peoird?Okay, so, when I get my peoird I get extremely bad lower back pain. It's not anywhere else, just my lower back. I'm not really interested in how to fix it as much as what is wrong with me. A lot of girls I've talked to about it say they don't get that much pain. When I get mine I can barely move or function because the pain is so severe. It feels like someone has a sledge hammer and hit me in the bone that's there or whatever (right above my a$$ crack I guess). Or maybe it feels like someone has cut me down my back, yanked my spine or w/e that bone is and started to shave on it with a vegetetable shaver you seen in As Seen On TV IDK if it matters but:It lasts about six days, I've never missed a month, It's somewhere between regular and heavy (ew so disgusting, but w/e)Thanks, pls halp. I'm trying to find an OB/GYN that's open on weekends D=
