Mount St. Mary's hired a private equity CEO to be their president. You'll never guess what happened next.

I'd be down for some Portal 2 co-op. Joined the group - username: Oberoff.

For anyone who wants to help support the Special Olympics, there is a Polar Plunge this weekend with proceeds going to the Special Olympics. Participants also get to hear Coach Hoke and Coach Carr speak prior to the event.

I suppose I have a fixed perspective and I am only answering insofar as how that makes them better for me. I didn't set out to prove that they were objectively better, but those are the reasons that stand out for me and why I fell on the side of the divide that I did.
I think it is somewhat hilarious that the bulk of this discussion has come down to a IOS vs Android debate when the OP explicitly stated that he was "not interested in hearing why I should buy an iPad"
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Several reasons||
One of the most prominent is pricing - if you compare what you get for the cost, Apple comes out substantially behind in several categories - most easily seen in the iPad mini which is $130 more than the Nexus 7 and inferior in almost every way.
Another reason is that I don't like the relationship that Apple wants to have with controlling what I do and how I use their hardware once I have purchased it from them. They want to strictly control the user experience and, frankly, I think that is crap. I paid for it, I want to use it without regards to how Steve Job's ghost intended it to be used.

When it comes to consumer products, Apple is great for the style obsessed or the technologically incompetent and is priced accordingly.
|3 years 7 weeks ago||Nexus||
I have the Nexus 7 and I absolutely love it. Though I can't comment with any experience on either the Nexus 10 or the Transformer, I think that the Transformer Prime being on ICS almost makes it a deal-breaker in my mind, though I have read the hardware is excellent.
My best experiences with android have been on google products because the experience is unspoiled by manufacturer UI crap.

When my wife was pregnant, once she reached the happy pregnant months, but before she was so big she felt terrible, that she got a surge of hormones and was pouncing on me at least two times a day. It lasted two weeks.
It was awesome.
|4 years 10 weeks ago||Awesome||
Holy crap, I can't believe I've never seen that video. I forgot how good he was. Amazing. Thanks for sharing.

We're going back and forth between Backyardigans and Barney on Netflix. Ugg..

13 - 9, Michigan
|4 years 23 weeks ago||Amazing||
I find it stunning that all you managed to pull from that post was a throwaway reference to stupid things being written about RR.
|4 years 24 weeks ago||Not nuts||
My wife and I can see each other on Latitude too. It is a helpful tool if you have a good relationship with your spouse. Neither of us have anything to hide from one another and it is sometimes handy to see where she is if we're traveling or planning on meeting up after work - I can see if she's 5 minutes away or half an hour away.

Sorry for your loss. My grandfather died about ten years ago and as the church service ended, Hail to the Victors came booming out of the speakers. I've never seen so many people smiling at a sad occasion. Go blue.
|5 years 4 weeks ago||Whole lot of opinions||
Whole lot of opinions, but there is only one that matters.
Did you know that if you have enough MGoPoints when a new coach is hired, you get annointed as the new Brian? All the MGoCardinals convene to posbang and negbang their favored candidates and when the dust clears, a new Brian is crowned. This happens every time Michigan changes coaches.
Old Brian was the Brian voted in when Lloyd Carr retired, and he has now ascended to MGoHeaven, but soon, our New Brian will be crowned and all the MGoWorld will rejoice. So save up those MGoPoints, because who knows? IT COULD BE YOU!

Wisconsin may have lost, but it was a close game and they are as MANBALL as it gets around these parts. They put up a solid game against one of the strongest spread teams in the nation.
|5 years 9 weeks ago||Two possibilities||
1) You said something that a lot of people disagreed with.
2) A bunch of people accidentally negged you.
I'd guess number 1.

DB: Do not try and bend the coaching decision. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.
Media: What truth?
DB: There is no coaching decision.
Media: There is no coaching decision?
DB: Then you'll see, that it is not the coach that changes, it is only yourself.
|5 years 9 weeks ago||OT - Bowl ticket contest||
Sorry to thread jump, but I can't start threads yet and this is bowl talk.
for anyone within a 3 hour radius of Ann Arbor (because you have to pick up the prize within 3 hours), annarbor.com is running a bowl game drawing this week. You have to answer a question every day for a week and they put you into a drawing for a package including airfare, bowl tickets, hotel stay and some transportation for the Gator Bowl, as well as access to the official alumni tailgate. The package is through the alumni association I guess.
A chance to win a $4,000 package for answering a few Michigan football questions this week. Since we're already all doing that while at work anyhow, it seems like an okay deal. Here's a link if you're interested:
