    Welcome! If it releases on Thursday as all the latest rumors suggest, I don't think there will be a preorder, unless they start selling online tomorrow with overnight shipping available for delivery on Thursday (or after).

    A good article on Droid-Life regarding whether or not the Galaxy Nexus is really a Nexus device. It includes info from a Google engineer:

    Is the Galaxy Nexus a “True Nexus” When Attached to a Carrier? Depends on Your Definition. – Droid Life

    Have you recently started using a new perfume? That could be the cause. Weird, I know, but I got a bad metallic taste in my mouth when I started using a new cologne. It went away a day after I stopped using it. My aunt experienced the same thing with a perfume. Maybe it's just a weird family trait :thinking:

    Drug free, free of things that cause addiction. Advil and cough drops aren't exactly in that list...narcotics on the other hand... Caffeine is iffy - but still infinitely better than cocaine. I even avoid taking any sort of asprin/anti-inflammatories. I also rarely consume caffeine. Only when I'm literally dragging my ass will I get coffee or something.

    No problem. I didn't take offense to anything you said, and if you read my stuff again I never said someone would not be a movie buff for not watching a movie. Everyone is close minded about something.

    Spoiler alert for Once Upon a Time:

    I know! I doubt it's permanent, but I think it's going to have to wait until they're back in Fairy Tale. I love all the LOST references on the show, though, like the kiss flashbacks.

    What blew my mind, though, was Regina knowing exactly what was happening! I thought that she was just as much in the dark as anyone about her true past. I do think that Mr. Gold knows it all, too. And what the frak was he burying in the woods when Graham showed up?!

    Nah. You should've said Jennifer Garner. :p

    j/k

    I don't buy into the "throw away" mentality that is so prevalent today. I don't know when marriage stopped meaning anything for most people, but I don't like it.

    Me, too, I'm that giddy already. You don't know how great it feels to have someone not only acknowledge the existence of our beloved unicorn, but to also reserve one for us..Yes, I am happy now!

    No. But thanks.

    And you're not alone in that. I get the same thing. I usually rely on scented lotion for the perfume effect. (didn't use any this morning so can't be that)

    OT - Cigar talk.

    I'm no expert, but, I heard once that many of the really good cigar makers from Cuba actually moved away because of Castro and the embargo. And now a days you can actually get better cigars from places like Nicaragua & The Dominican Republic etc.

    Cuban cigars are more of a novelty these days. I smoked some that I got from the Dutch duty free store when I was in Kandahar and they weren't all that good.

    I have had every model of the iPhone and must say the OS is very nice indeed. The small screen on the device, for me at least, is the turnoff. Very toyish.If Apple would make a 4.3" or larger iPhone i would have one.

    OT and might be a little preachy (I apologize in advance):
    To each his/her own, and I do feel that you're right. Being close-minded about substances you put into your body is much more important than other areas because these substances have the possibility of causing harm, or being a catalyst for actions that cause harm.

    Just bringing this up because I've heard many people preach day and night about drugs while being perfectly fine with anything a doctor prescribes. Just cause it's medical heroin, doesn't mean it isn't heroin.

    And now back to our regularly scheduled programming.


    Edit: and can you send me a picture the next time you are literally dragging ass :p

    I know someone asked about "SDCard" (internal storage) read/write speeds on the device.

    Good morning everyone!

    So I wake up to what looks like no change. Are we all still hopeful for the 15th (dumb question haha) or have we moved on to the 20th?

    I'm sure cubans can't all be put under one category. Just like anything else, I'm sure some are really the best, some not so much..

    It took me over 20 years before I first saw the original matter-of-fact I think the first one I saw was Empire. As much of a Sci-fi fan I am, I have never been a fan of Star Wars or Star Trek. It simple does not appeal to me.

    You do know what the word "literally" means right? I'm picturing you walking along with your ass literally dragging on the ground, that can't be comfortable.

    Maybe you have excessive iron in your system? I know a lot of women take iron supplements because of the "woman times" :)p), and it builds up too much and you, well, taste metal.
