Milner addressed some of those concerns (at least number 4) in his interview with the Atlantic. He mentions that we do not currently have even close to the technology needed to do this today. As he says, “[The $100 million is] to do extensive research into all of these challenges, and try to convince ourselves that this is possible in the lifetime of a single generation.”
Will the research pay off? Who knows. My bet is that we will figure out fusion before developing the necessary technology to use this laser method.

The data would travel back at the speed of light and Alpha Centauri is ~4.4 light-years away, so it would take ~4.4 years to get the data. It would probably take even longer due to compression, encryption, transfer rates, etc, but I do not know much about those.

Per Milner, the proposed laser would be on the ground to avoid this problem (as well as to lower costs).

Gravitational waves do not lose much energy while traversing through spacetime since they interact very weakly with matter. Thus, to generate opposing gravitational waves, we would need to create objects equally as massive -- for the LIGO event, it would require impossible amounts of energy (65 solar masses as a base, plus we would need to get them accelerating, etc.), not to mention, we would necessarily create black holes, which might cause some other complications for us...
It would take much (much, much, etc.) less energy to create some sort of hovering system for a car than to counteract gravtitational waves.
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Clarification||
Gravitational waves travel at the speed of light, so we could not use this for superluminal communication.
Changes in mass/gravity are not instantly detectable. They were in Newton's theory, but this was not consistent with special relativity and this contradiction was the impetus behind Einstein seeking out a general theory of relativity.

The Law for the Wolves by Rudyard Kipling
NOW this is the law of the jungle, as old and as true as the sky,
And the wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the wolf that shall break it must die.
As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk, the law runneth forward and back;
For the strength of the pack is the wolf, and the strength of the wolf is the pack.
Wash daily from nose tip to tail tip; drink deeply, but never too deep;
And remember the night is for hunting and forget not the day is for sleep.
The jackal may follow the tiger, but, cub, when thy whiskers are grown,
Remember the wolf is a hunter—go forth and get food of thy own.
Keep peace with the lords of the jungle, the tiger, the panther, the bear;
And trouble not Hathi the Silent, and mock not the boar in his lair.
When pack meets with pack in the jungle, and neither will go from the trail,
Lie down till the leaders have spoken; it may be fair words shall prevail.
When ye fight with a wolf of the pack ye must fight him alone and afar,
Lest others take part in the quarrel and the pack is diminished by war.
The lair of the wolf is his refuge, and where he has made him his home,
Not even the head wolf may enter, not even the council may come.
The lair of the wolf is his refuge, but where he has digged it too plain,
The council shall send him a message, and so he shall change it again.
If ye kill before midnight be silent and wake not the woods with your bay,
Lest ye frighten the deer from the crop and thy brothers go empty away.
Ye may kill for yourselves, and your mates, and your cubs as they need and ye can;
But kill not for pleasure of killing, and seven times never kill man.
If ye plunder his kill from a weaker, devour not all in thy pride,
Pack-right is the right of the meanest; so leave him the head and the hide.
The kill of the pack is the meat of the pack. Ye must eat where it lies;
And no one may carry away of that meat to his lair, or he dies.
The kill of the wolf is the meat of the wolf. He may do what he will,
But, till he is given permission, the pack may not eat of that kill.
Lair right is the right of the mother. From all of her years she may claim
One haunch of each kill for her litter, and none may deny her the same.
Cub right is the right of the yearling. From all of his pack he may claim
Full gorge when the killer has eaten; and none may refuse him the same.
Cave right is the right of the father, to hunt by himself for his own;
He is freed from all calls to the pack. He is judged by the council alone.
Because of his age and his cunning, because of his gripe and his paw,
In all that the law leaveth open the word of the head wolf is law.
Now these are the laws of the jungle, and many and mighty are they;
But the head and the hoof of the law and the haunch and the hump is—Obey!

Vegas' goal is to encourage an equal amount of betting on each side of the line. They take a cut regardless, so 50% of the money on each side of the line minimizes their risk and maximizes their expected value.

According to various inflation calculators online, the bail would be roughly $25,000 in today's money, which seems a little steep to me. It looks like they were (literally) bailed out by some local businessmen. The $4.65 fines equate to ~$115, which sounds like a reasonable penalty.

While it is true that Manwe and the other Valar sent Gandalf (and the other four Istari) to Middle Earth as part of a master plan, it was Eru himself who revived Gandalf.
From The Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien (Houghton Mifflin paperback edition, 2000):
"[Gandalf] was sent by a mere prudent plan of the angelic Valar or governors; but Authority had taken up this plan and enlarged it, at the moment of its failure. 'Naked I was sent back - for a brief time, until my task is done'. Sent back by whom, and whence? Not by the 'gods' whose business is only with this embodied world and its time; for he passed 'out of thought and time'." (p. 203)
As Tolkien said in this letter, Gandalf was not sent back by "the gods" (e.g., Manwe as you suggested), rather "Authority" intervened since the Valar's plan failed. Tolkien refers to Eru as "Authority" in other letters (e.g., "Authority" is listed under "Eru" in the index), so it is clear that it was Eru who was responsible for reviving Gandalf.

This is one of the reasons many of the BCS computers don't start running their algorithms until midseason--there isn't enough relevant data. I believe the Football Outsiders predicted doom and gloom for us, but that was based on pre-season data, which is a horrible data set to analyze for predictive purposes. Now that we are midway through the season, the data set is much, much better (but still not great due to the small sample size), and we should trust them a little more now.

Which guy should I trust? The guy who watched the game live who provides merely anecdotal evidence...or the guy who watched the game live, then watched every play in slow motion multiple times, and then wrote up a detailed explanation of each play? Hmm.

I would not be surprised to see Lewan-Bryant-Glasgow-Kalis-Schofield start against Minnesota after the bye week. At this point, I think I would be more surprised if Miller was still the starter in October.

|2 years 36 weeks ago||Awful refs.||
This was a complete screw up by the refs. It was clearly a delay of game on the Arizona State player laying on the ball. I'm glad I'm not a Wisconsin fan.

Oklahoma looks pretty bad this year too. Baylor or Oklahoma State will win the conference.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||All of them.||
They all committed. All of them.
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Hello.||
|2 years 37 weeks ago||Lots of positives.||
Lots of positives to take away from this game. It's a good thing T. Gordon will be replacing Furman against Notre Dame since Furman seemed to be our biggest weakness. It's scary to imagine how good this defense will be next year (and the year after, and the year after...).

There's no need to be a dick about it.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||Cool||
That story you just told is quite possibly the coolest story I have ever heard.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||Now.||
Now, for a cheer, they are here triumphant.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||Neither||
Just a fan.

|2 years 38 weeks ago||Stalwart step||
In slawart step they're nighing. With shouts of vict'ry crying. We hurrah, hurrah, we greet you now. Hail.
|2 years 38 weeks ago||NDSU||
I could see North Dakota State beating Kansas State in a huge upset. NDSU is coming off back-to-back FCS National Championships while Kansas State lost their Heisman-contending quarterback and should regress quite a bit this year. The only thing going for them is that Bill Snyder is a wizard dressed as a human.
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Impressive.||
That is actually impressive. Hopefully Baumgardner is not such a soothsayer (since I would rather beat Michigan State, go 12-0, and win the Big Ten).
|2 years 39 weeks ago||Because||
You can't have one without the other.

Do we play Michigan State in basketball on March 13, 2016 or something?
|2 years 39 weeks ago||14th||
Michigan was also ranked 14th in the 1997 preseason poll.

Slocum must have finally made an account.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Wait.||
You are likely going to have to wait awhile. Michigan and Ohio State will be able to compete with the top SEC teams soon, but the rest of the Big Ten is not going to be so good. The rest of the Big Ten is just not recruiting like even bottom-of-the-pack SEC teams.
|2 years 40 weeks ago||Brady.||
Tom Brady was not that special during his years at Michigan. Sure he was good, but definitely not "Legend" material.

|2 years 41 weeks ago||Wisconsin's 2016 schedule:||
9/3 LSU at Green Bay
9/10 at Virginia Tech (although this is supposedly being pushed back to another year per Twitter)
10/1 at Michigan
10/8 at Michigan State
10/15 Ohio State
10/22 at Iowa
11/19 at Purdue
If Virginia Tech stays on the schedule, that will be a brutal OOC schedule combined with a brutal conference schedule: at Michigan, at Michigan State, Ohio State for the crossovers immediately followed by a string of at Iowa, Nebraska, Northwestern. Good luck Wisconsin! For your sake, I hope you're still good in a few years.
