  • Teach @A_Ron_Hubbard how to cook

    My family loves mashed potatoes - we have them at least two times a week. I suck at peeling potatoes - it takes me a half hour to peel and dice. I tried these and yeah, sure, they cost $2.39 for one meal as opposed to ~ $5.00 for a 10lb bag of whole potatoes but when you're making supper for 5 people between getting out of work and driving to two different kids practices you take time savers where you can get them.

    These are delicious! 13 minutes in the microwave, some milk, butter, salt &pepper and beaters and you've got a damn fine bowl of whipped mashed potatoes!! Sometimes i add some garlic and make with cream instead of milk - heavenly!

  • Why did A.ron stop watching lost?

    But you've gotta take a ron's opinion of Lost with a grain of salt because Charlie is his bitch eating crackers so clearly he's got a few screws loose upstairs :p
  • Should I just try it ? What could go wrong ?

    Wow... I haven't read everyone else's replies just yet. I think getting out and talking to people is a good idea. I feel like a coffee house would be less pressure/low key than a bar, so that would be a great place to start. If you're just feeling the need for some sex/bed buddy, just be sure to be up front with whomever you may hook up with ("I just want a casual thing, for now, see how things go") to help avoid drama. I think if you're looking for a relationship beyond the bedroom, tread lightly and don't have huge expectations to start off. It is true when they say "you find love when you least expect it!"

    *this is coming from a 42 year old 17-year married lady who has only had like three serious relationships ever*

    But I definitely think you should go to a cafe and chill! You can strike up a conversation with anyone and see where it goes! Friend or maybe more - it's always fun to meet new people!!

  • Seems like AMC is a little butt hurt!!

    Copy-pasted from The Spoiling Dead Fans' Facebook page. Looks like AMC is butt hurt that the Lucille victim is going to be spoiled before the season starts. What ASSHOLES! If they didn't fuck around and just showed us, this would not be an issue now, would it?


    Well Buttercups, we have some sad news to share today. After two years, AMC finally reached out to us! But it wasn’t a request not to post any info about the Lucille Victim or any type of friendly attempt at compromise, it was a cease and desist and a threat of a lawsuit by AMC Holdings, LLC’s attorney, Dennis Wilson. They say we can’t make any type of prediction about the Lucille Victim. Their stance is that making such a prediction would be considered copyright infringement. AMC tells us that we made some claim somewhere that says we received “copyright protected, trade secret information about the most critical plot information in the unreleased next season of The Walking Dead” and that we announced we were going to disclose this protected information. We still aren't sure where we supposedly made this claim because they did not identify where it was.

    The truth is, we have become victims of our own success. We hold a track record for accuracy and now AMC perceives us as a threat. We can understand why. We were once just a small community, but now we are 400,000 strong among all our outlets. The TSDF Army, originally named in jest, is now very real in this little cottage industry. We are a threat because of our accuracy. However, it was never our intention to cause harm to this show (and we don’t believe we have), only to satisfy the curiosity of thousands of fans who wanted what we offered. Millions of other fans tune in to this show unspoiled and are none the wiser about who we are. We are a dedicated community of enthusiastic, passionate fans that love this show so much we always want to know what's going to happen and speculate on all those possibilities. Our spoilers are intended only for fans that seek them out to enhance their own viewing experience.

    Basically what it all comes down to is if we post our Lucille Victim prediction and we're right, AMC says they will sue us. Whether there are grounds for it or not is not the issue, it still costs money to defend. That is the way our justice system works. Would we have defenses? Sure. But it also costs money to mount that defense. If someone brings us a potential Lucille spoiler and we confirm it and it turns out accurate we could get sued. That doesn’t mean they’re right and we’re wrong, but like so many other situations in this world, they have the money and power and we do not. So we lose. In the past two years, AMC has filed several wrongful DMCA notices against us with full knowledge that we could not file counter-notices, hired investigators to intimidate our members, and threatened our local members with arrest, among other questionable acts. We’re also pretty sure they had something to do with the DOS attack on our site just before the finale last season. They have exhibited every quality of a bully pounding its chest. That sucks for us. It's very disappointing to see the network that hosts our favorite show attack one of their biggest fan bases. Especially when they could have taken a more diplomatic approach that could have given them the same results.

    Please respect our decision not to put our livelihoods at risk. AMC has been harassing us for four days now by contacting our homes, our family members and our employers; even posting on this page and personal social media accounts. We are fans of this show just like you and aren’t a commercial operation that makes profit. We have families and careers to think about. No spoiler will ever be worth compromising those things. If you think this makes us pussies that are bowing down to AMC then so be it.

    After consultation with our legal counsel, we have responded to AMC that the TSDF staff will not be posting our prediction on who gets Lucilled on any of our outlets. We will also not be answering any questions about who we think it is. If you hear a potential spoiler elsewhere and bring it to us for confirmation, we will not confirm or deny it. If you message us privately and ask who we think gets Lucilled, we will not respond. The info may find another outlet on its own, but an official prediction will not come from the TSDF staff.

    But let’s be real here. It’s unreasonable to think for a moment that the Lucille spoiler won’t come out before the air date. Our 2% of the viewership knows better. First, we aren't the only spoiler business in the game. Also, simple observation and deduction can’t be prohibited. With much help, we have become very good at watching, listening, waiting, researching and separating the truth from the lies and being savvy when it comes to this show’s filming process. That typically reaches our goals. We are the reporters of this information. So while we will continue to post set reports, it will be up to you guys to take that information and make your own assumptions about who it is. We cannot assist by giving our speculation.

    Just to clarify, we will continue to post all of our filming updates, eyewitness reports and all photos taken legally throughout the filming season just like we always have. We are by no means getting shut down. It's still business as usual here, we just won't be spoiling the biggest moment so far. Yes, we have taken a bit of a fall. But why do we fall? So we can learn to pick ourselves back up again. (Thanks, Alfred!)

    Very truly yours - The TSDF Staff

  • Why Not a Bald Move Chat Room?

    My own forums experience is that chat rooms kill the forums and that you get a lot of members then who get their daily dose of forum life in the chat instead of the threads. I'm sure others have more positive experiences
    I had the same experience with a forum I used to run. Granted it was a totally different environment (it was a parenting forum) but still... Chat room ruined the forums.
