I suppose it is etymologically related to the word "flatulence," but it has taken a different path since the two words came into being in ca. 1650s-60s.

I suppose this is the end of trying to get satellite camps banned through the NCAA.

we do about that?

at US foreign policy via IMF, IBRD, GATT and now WTO, and the way the US has strong-armed international currency systems since the Bretton Woods conference in 1944, the shitty labor practices of poor countries are no accident.

Or at least give them gruel.

hit job was facilitated by people inside the UM AD. Out here we will never know how many of those are still left. The war against RR also sabotaged the players, the fans, and the football program at UM. As late as last August Hoke and Brandon were still rolling out the red carpet for Rosenberg when he skulked out of his swamp at SI for privileged interviews at UM.
The F-word paper never acknowledged its own editorial malpractice in allowing that factually dishonest piece to see the light of day. That paper still acts like it never did anything wrong and like that piece isn't the journalistic paraquat that it is.
Half of the deplorable duo, Snyder, whose names appeared on the criminal libel still purveys his journalistic malfeasance under the same roof he did on the day of infamy. Several others anethema to human decency still work there too.
In short, there has been no distance made between that paper now and its earlier manifestation which, holding the knife, plunged it into the back of the players and fans of the Michigan football program.
No forgiveness. Never forget.

Unless you want it to rhyme with "whiney."

Why not go all Aztec, and feed the heart of everyone on the team that misses the extra point to the other team?
This may require rules changes that go outside the NFL.

Boston Terriers can be peevish, or at least, possessive. In their corner, they are among the most likely to have a dedicated rescue group for their breed.

I think we agreed on another thread here that when artificial intelligence goes SkyNet, the velocity of improvement in computer technology will be so fast that the computers will be 10,000 times smarter than we are by the time we realize they have tipped the balance.
So my prediction of the impact on societal norms would be human extinction.

by that logic, they will all end up at the earth's center of gravity.
First of all, do they have mass? Any reason to sink or fall relative to the density of the media around them?
If yes, then they will all converge at the earth's center, compressed in a superdense sphere of ectoplasm. And there will be no observances at the earth's surface.

With the windows closed, the air in the car moves with the car and so do the things flying in it.
With the windows open, there is no clear boundary separating the inner air from the outer air. You have turbulance on the boundaries between the air from the outside and air trapped in pockets by the back window, near the floor, etc. The hummingbird would be caught in this turbulence until it avoided it either by going out the window or finding a quiet spot away from the turbulence inside.
d): too much thought and too little experiment. Mass and energy are why this thought experiment doesn't work out.
One for you: you pass a string all around the world at ground level at the equator. How much longer do you have to make it in order for it to clear the earth by one foot all the way around?

Are they stuck in the airspace where the room would be?
How many ghosts were made homeless during the bombings of Hamburg or Tokyo?
What if the dwelling is destroyed during the perfidy than makes someone a ghost in the first place?

The 1969 helmet stickers didn't have the snarling wolverine, pace MVictors:

Rob Lytle agrees.

That sounds like trying to say "mouth-breather" with a severe head cold.
Similar malapropism: "Camel's toe under the tent."

helmet stickers first started in Illinois is a little like pointing out that comprehensive postal codes first happened in the Ukraine starting in December 1932 -- everyone goes, "well, OK," and then goes on life unchanged.
The big thing, doctrinalogically speaking, is Bo is not just a copycat of Woody.

we need to distinguish between "neutral" as in halfway in-between, ie, Georgia-Florida in Jacksonville, and one-off change-of-venue, as in Dubai.
"Jacksonville" says "y'all come"; "Dubai" says "fuck you, season ticket-holders."
