Hard to pick anyone but Nyquist, given his Red Wings/Michigan connections and the engineering angle too.

Looking at the FBI's Crime in the United States reports over the last 10 years, I don't think its the case that the rate of unrelated murders has increased, at least not according to the FBI's data. If anything, it looks like its decreasing.

I am too, but there's a gulf between saying "I don't find tattoos on women attractive" and saying something like "Why mess with perfection?" The latter implies that you feel you know better than someone else how they ought to manage their own bodies - basically the same as this:

Because they don't care what you think?

I cannot believe that the same label that had Sepultura, Glassjaw, Slipknot, Soulfly, and Mastodon is responsible for Nickelback.

If you aren't reading Ramzy Nasrallah at least once in a while, you're missing out. There's a reason why Brian cites him all the time.

Grunge came about in the early 90s, when the US was in recession where there was a fairly high level of unemployment, particularly for young people.

He did get blasted pretty hard for it by a lot of folks, but in the Q&A he did here, he spoke about how those came to be and how they're being addressed in subsequent printings.

I had thought that the law had changed the way it was included, but was still part of the "points," but could not be the deciding factor - or something like that. I'm pretty removed from that part now so you may be correct.
I mean, you're right, of course, but those are 65 pretty powerful positions, as we, Texas and Rutgers have gotten a lot of very public experience with lately.

We consider it as part of our criteria for admission to the University, so I think its relevant when considering who we hire to lead it, as well.

I linked to the report that I drew the NCAA stats from, but the links are a bad color in the table. They provided some additional breakdown in the report:
That report includes a lot of other stuff about ethnicity in college athletics, as well as within the NCAA itself.

Ugh, forgot about him. Thanks, updated.

He even gets the shimmy in afterwards. Amazing.

If by "profit" you mean they get a little walking around money to pay parking tickets and stuff, then yeah, they do alright.
|23 weeks 2 days ago||It also hasn't helped that||
It also hasn't helped that there are 18 different boxing weight classes, which means unless you're a serious boxing junkie, it can be difficult to keep track of where everyone stands and who the current champ is.

I get the reaction against the perceived hypocrisy, but to say that if you don't like what the organization you work for does, your obligation is to quit before you can criticize it is a pretty strong position. Especially given that its the thing they've been training to do all their lives, they perceive they aren't especialy qualified to do anything else, and they only have a brief period in which they can make any money doing it.

The opposing defense will play very differently in the closing two minutes of a close game, ceding yards to avoid giving up a big play.

Are Axl and Slash back on speaking terms?

Under typical university endowment assumptions, the principal needs to be at least 20 times the annual draw, so to cover just Edsall's $2.1 million salary would require a $40+ million endowment. UA's doing good, but I doubt they have that kind of cash laying around to invest in UMD football.

$44 for twin beds? That's $11 per athlete per night. I think we've found the way to make bowl trips profitable!

At which point, he stared blankly for a few moments before saying, "What's nadir mean?"

Moreover, have you ever seen them in the same room together?
Didn't think so.

Its because its trying to force playback using Flash, which is disabled in Chrome, Firefox and others by default now as its a massive CF of security holes. When you open in a new tab, it plays it back using Webm as it supposed to.

This was from the comment I was replying to.

There's a ton. Even on a relatively quick read during flights this past weekend, my count got up to a dozen in the print version - everything from missing punctuation and spelling errors to repeated sentences.
