The Russian-Ukrainian theory of deep, abiotic petroleum origins and Thomas Gold's deep gas theory have mostly been invalidated. Sorry to burst your bubble.
But I'll give you credit, it is still plausible. However, given the amount oil deposits on Earth, I don't believe one can account for it ALL being abiotic. And it certainly isn't in infinite quantities as the OP was suggesting.

You can work the math out yourself here: http://www.house.leg.state.mn.us/hrd/pubs/aclimit.pdf
But I'll do it for you... J.T. would have had to have consumed the equivalent of 5 beers to blow a 0.09 at 225 lbs.
5! While I can't argue against the 0.08 vs 0.09 being "arbitrary", I don't think anyone in their right mind would feel safe letting someone else drive after consuming 5 beers.

If your on an extreme budget, go with VIZIO. But only as a last resort. If you can find a sale or have the extra money.... go with SONY
If you have channels that aren't in HD, I'd NOT recommend VIZIO. HD channels come in perfect and awesome, but anything that isn't HD comes in pixellated or fuzzy. I'd also have to point out that a lot of peripherals (DVD player, PS3) come in really softly. I have to boost my volume to 100 just to hear it.
My other TV is a SONY that I adopted through marriage. It's been a champ and I highly recommend it. Combine that with a Sony HT-CT770 2.1 Channel Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer (or equivalent), and it's been an awesome purchase. Found this one by testing all the sound bars at the local best buy. This one gave the richest sound... while the others sounded hollow or tin-ey.

|39 weeks 1 day ago||Utopia; a MMORPG since 1998||
It's a gamer's addiction I can't break.
I've been playing this game on and off since 2003. It's one of the oldest-running online browser games. It features a hardcore strategy gameplay on building and managing a kingdom set in a fantasy world. And it's especially number crazy, like deciding what race and personality to play and how best to take advantage of each individual's attributes.
Sadly it's numbers which used to be 40k or so near it's height is down to only about 4k. Lots of long-time vets playing with a few new players here and there. The game used to be unplayable unless you downloaded a third party software to analyze your builds and attack #'s. Now thought, they incorporated a lot of that into the game itself. Much more playable now for casual gamers, but still takes a lot of coordination to do well as a team.
Game can be found here:
Forums are currently down at the moment (not sure why) but likely due to a new "age" starting. By age, the game resets every 3 months to a different age. It's on Age 65 now.

Couldn't the opposite logic be applied here? He's saying that he, Hackett, will make the decision. He's an interim. Since he doesn't know how long he'll be here, wouldn't that mean that he's likely going to make the decision sooner rather than later? And if sooner, wouldn't that mean giving Hoke the axe after the season? If he had it in him mind to keep Hoke, why wouldn't you offer him an extension now to help in recruiting? So I say most 'tea leaves' suggest 'he gone'.

Stealing a laptop is more than just stealing a pricey item. I had a friend in my Master's program who had his laptop stolen out of his car, which contained all his data from his lab. Despite my friend being an idiot for not backing it up... he lost everything and couldn't complete his degree. Not to mention all the pictures and other stuff that was sentimental. So you've got to also think of it as someone rifling through your DVD collection, your music CDs, your photo albums and just ganking all of it.

I'd almost argue if Drake Johnson gets 200+ yards a game from here on out that it would signify that the coaches NEED to be replaced. They've had DJ all season and it took injuries to the top 2 RBs on the depth chart to "see" his potential. So if that's the case, clearly the coaches are not doing their jobs properly.

But I'm in agreement with most other things you've mentioned. He's been treeting Mich football as a product line from a company and not an actual athletic team.

"Jazz were surprisingly good in clutch game situations games in 2013-14, going 9-7 in games decided by five points or less."
So you're saying when the score was nearly tied towards the end of a game, they won about 50% of the time (56% exactly). Law of averages, man, low of averages. This is nothing special.
Also, could they use the word "game" any more?

I can understand not wearing a headset. You could argue that "the headset constrains my hearing on the field, and I'd like to be able to hear what's going on around me and on the field in more clarity". OR "I like to move up and down the sidelines and with a headset I just can't do that".
But that makes me wonder, what exactly does Brady Hoke do? Presumably he doesn't call the offensive plays, Nuss does. Presumambly Mattison calls most of the defensive playcalls. So what exactly does Hoke do? I thought he was more of an 'interact with the players' type of coach and decision-making (when to go for it on 4th down, when to call a timeout). But from everything we've seen that aspect of the game calling has FAILED miserably. So many wrong choices. And if he's not calling plays, then he how in the heck did he not see the Shane hit? Sure he could miss it live. But it's not like he's calling in the next play, he MUST HAVE SEEN the replay on the jumbotron. Everyone in the stands did.

|1 year 19 weeks ago||Over-reacting||
While I'm in the camp of Hoke must go (solely based for on-field performance). I think everyone is over-reacting to this statement:
I believe coach Hoke didn't see the play initially. I believe he didn't purposely leave a concussed player in the game. It's of my opinion that he clearly doesn't pay attention. This, combined with playclock issues, hurry-up, formations, etc. He's just clueless.
The comment that he thought it was a targeting hit can be summed up as a post-hoc reaction to watching the film. I think we need to step back off the podium for at least this comment. As for the others, well, Hoke certainly is digging his own grave and certainly seems to be trying to push blame on others.
Speaking of which, what would we have done if Hoke remained firm today on this stance, "We don't talk about injuries b/c I don't want to" meme. That died today (for good reason). I just can't fathom if he would have been able to leave the press conference with his head still attached to his body if he had tried to use that line today, of all days.

|1 year 20 weeks ago||I've been flip-flopping about booing||
I was firmly under the impression it's OK to boo when the coaches do something like "not go for it on 4th down". That's clearly directed at the coaches. Booing after an interception is directed at the players. Not cool. There's a definite time and place for it, but one needs to be careful.
However, now that I've said that. I think I'm slowly flip-flopping about whether it's OK to boo. I've never been a fan of "booing". But after a lot thought can we just blame Dave Brandon? If I'm paying $100 for a ticket, that's PRO money. You present the team as professional when you require me to take a loan to buy season tickets. If you want us not to boo, then provide amateur-priced tickets. Until then, I think you can bet you're going to get some people who feel compelled to voice whatever opinion they want.

"In the Miami game, the coaching staff was a little bit embarrassed". Where were the big Hoke balls that allowed him to poop gold from years past? 4th and inches. No timeout with clock running down. 4th and 6, and didn't go for it despite being on the 30-soming yardline. And if I'm not mistaken, he did that twice this game. That's pure Ferentz/Tressel ball. It's an embarrasment that the coaches don't know basic odds of winning a game and going for it in enemy territory. /rant

A little less surprised that Frank Clark didn't get one, but I can understand that logic.
