||I was looking into setting up an ETrade account but I would like some opinions from people that use it... Pros/cons of the site and also would it be easier going through a private broker? Thanks

||So its that time of year again to purchase a new board. I want to get out of my Burton fanboy status and try a Capita. I've researched the 2012 line and have it narrowed down to either the Stairmaster extreme or the Totally FK'n Awesome. Im 6 foot 160 and focus on the whole mountain when boarding and play in the park when im feelin frisky. Any suggestions or opinions on these two new boards? Thanks

||So I was looking at Transworld Goodwood picks for 2012 and I noticed the boards on the list were not big name brands. Are all companies becoming equal with the tech in the boards? Thoughts? Opinions?

||I'm not a fan of Auburn... but this is taking it a little far.... AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn University says someone deliberately poisoned trees at Toomer's Corner, where fans have long celebrated big wins and hundreds gathered after the Tigers won the football national championship on Jan. 10.The university said in a statement Wednesday that a herbicide commonly used to kill trees was applied "in lethal amounts" to the soil around the two trees, and that they likely can't be saved.[+] EnlargeAP Photo/Dave MartinAuburn fans celebrated the school's BCS title in January at Toomer's Corner.Auburn discovered the poisoning after taking soil samples on Jan. 28, a day after a man called a syndicated radio show based in Birmingham saying he had used the herbicide on the trees."The weekend after the Iron Bowl, I went to Auburn, Ala., because I live 30 miles away, and I poisoned the Toomer's trees," the caller told The Paul Finebaum Radio Show, saying he was at the Iron Bowl.Calling himself "Al from Dadeville," he said he used Spike 80DF, also known as tebuthiuron, and the trees "definitely will die." The caller signed off with, "Roll Damn Tide."Later Thursday, WTVM in Columbus, Ga., reported that police arrested Harvey Almorn Updyke, 62, on a charge of criminal mischief. His bond is set at $50,000, the station reported.Auburn fans traditionally celebrate by using toilet paper to roll the Toomer's Corner trees, which are estimated to be more than 130 years old."We will take every step we can to save the Toomer's oaks, which have been the home of countless celebrations and a symbol of the Auburn spirit for generations of Auburn students, fans, alumni and the community," university President Jay Gogue said in a statement.City police are investigating the incident. The use of Spike 80DF is also governed by state agricultural laws and the Environmental Protection Agency. The university said it doesn't use the herbicide."We are assessing the extent of the damage and proceeding as if we have a chance to save the trees," said Gary Keever, an Auburn University professor of horticulture and a member of Auburn's Tree Preservation Committee. "We are also focused on protecting the other trees and shrubs in Samford Park. At this level the impact could be much greater than just the oaks on the corner, as Spike moves through the soil to a wide area."A small group gathered and rolled the trees Wednesday afternoon.The soil samples were tested at Mississippi State.The amount of herbicide detected in four samples ranged from 0.78 parts per million -- described by Auburn as "a very lethal dose" -- to 51 parts per million."This herbicide is extremely active and persistent," Keever said. "It's very likely to be in the soil for 3 to 5 years."

||Just received my stunt in the mail today. When I opened it I looked it over and found a small gash in base along with some scratches. Also, a few random blue spots where fixed in with the white printing. Not going to send it back because of this. Just a little disappointed seeing that I bought it as a "new board"

||So today in my college writing class we were talking about our upcoming expierence paper that is due. The teacher called on me and asked what I was thinking of writing on. So I replied by telling him I was going to write it on my snowboard trip Mt Bohemia last year and how it somewhat changed how I see things and the wilderness. Anyways... some bold individial raised her hand and replied " no offense, but snowboarders are just a bunch of pot heads". I took offense to it because I'm not ever gonna do drugs. But i would like to pole the members and put the results in my paper. Thanks..
