|1 day 21 hours ago||This reminds me of a story||
This reminds me of a story from several years ago about an implausibly strong kid who could do an iron cross when just 5 months old. Eventually he was figured out to have an extremely rare genetic anomaly which lessens the effect of a molecule that normally restrains muscle growth. His case may even help lead to effective treatments for muscular dystrophy, sarcopenia, etc.

The fact that 4/5 of those guys are still on active rosters is pretty damn good. They might not be "killing it," but THJ and Stauskas are both averaging 10-11 pts off the bench, Nik shooting 45% on 3PAs. GRIII recently cracked the Pacers' starting lineup, and Caris is still getting healthy.

Makes you wonder what the ensuing calamity would be like if the Cubs were to lose because of an ultra-fluke occurrence.... Like, if the ball of an otherwise walk-off HR collided with a seagull.

This report is a poignant and disconcerting reminder of another despicable occurrence from about a year ago in Idaho. Despite the unfathomable level of racism and cruelty, I don't recall it garnering a lot of media coverage, possibly d/t so much attention on the Baylor transgressions.

Blood of virgins might have potential, no joke. Just as long as it isn't from a 50-year-old virgin.

Yeah, this is a bit too loud for my tastes as well. Damn whippersnappers.

Regarding public education, it won't be very long until even the K-12 level is dramatically changed by new technologies. The added simulation/immersive effect of this kind of stuff should, eventually, bring the learning capacity of kids to a whole new level. So we're probably gonna seem unprecedentedly dumb in comparison to later generations.

OTOH, you can paradoxically theorize that the large nuclear arsenals of industrialized nations prevent mass warfare through a sort of Nash equilibrium. Except there needs to be an absolute foolproof means of tracing the origin of nuclear debris such as if Kim Jong-Cheeks equipped a rogue militant group who then detonated one, there'd only exist Korea since the word south would no longer be needed.

You can totally sell your body for sex. So long as you and your partner(s) don't mind the event being recorded, uploaded online, and publicly viewable for all eternity.

Yeah....I bought a Michigan Football hoodie, but didn't bother to wash it first since it was supposedly "brand new." Ended up giving me a fucking scabies infection.

The notion that there's a big difference between football and track speed is ridiculously misguided, at least when comparing NFL combine results with the time it takes a sprinter to hit 40 yards in a 100m dash.

Whether or not symptoms developed, CTE pathology has definitely been found amongst people at very young ages who incurred head injuries playing football. And that includes teenagers. ( https://www.bu.edu/cte/our-research/case-studies/18-year-old/ )

That's very true and underscores the importance of a good QB/OL relationship. Obviously if they're close buddies it helps the QB be less prone to shaking in his boots when he drops back.

You definitely answered part of your question. Simply from a financial POV, it's very costly to incarcerate someone and subsequently limit their employment prospects (less income tax collected).
