As a GCA afficianado, I logged in just to upvote you.
|1 week 5 days ago||But Ace is countering his own||
But Ace is countering his own argument by using points to talk about how much of a gulf there is between 1st tier and the 2nd tier. If you don't want people to use overall points to how to separate tiers, then don't do it yourself and do it selectively. Have a clear definition like tier 1 = top 10, tier 2 = top 25, etc.

Licensing is the least of their worries. I have created sports sims in the past (long past), and the amount of effort that is required is far more than a couple of random guys from Alabama can manage. There is a reason why all other sports sim companies have gone out of business over the past decade. Creating realistic 3D motions and graphics is extremely complicated and cost ridiculous amounts of money. The amount they are raising will barely cover the costs of developing the bare minimum 3D models. I highly doubt this ever gets off the ground.

Saying Tebow gave up on football is like saying I gave up on Gisele so that Brady can have her...

I cannot think of a single Fortune 500 company where a guy would not be fired instantly if you presented those slides at any event/meeting.
I know of an exec who resigned after a joke that he said which was much milder and shorter than this.

The new Vizio P-serise TV's are the most well reviewed around and great bargain for the quality. It is the goto selection for A/V crowd online.

So... is there anything stopping me from hiring Hurst to drive me around A2 for an hour then tip him 3X?
|10 weeks 9 hours ago||My daughter is 2 years away||
My daughter is 2 years away from driving and I plan to get Nissan Leaf for her. I like it since it should be reliable (electric motors are dead simple) and limited range is a feature, not a detriment in this case.

When you think Baylor fans cannot sink any lower, they prove you wrong once again...
Look at this winner on Baylor Fan's site on this topic:

That's it. No one else owes her anything IMO.
And they are talking about a girl who got dragged away by the football player and raped.
Football fans are the worst...

Actually, that is a local rule that the committee adopted based on the situation.
Let's say the video showed conclusively that DJ caused the ball to move and lied about it to the official. If that was the case, the rules committee would have certainly assessed two stroke penalty for not replacing the ball. They took a pity on him, but they didn't have to.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Actually, if the ball moves||
Actually, if the ball moves like that right before the putt, it usually moves towards you because it happens when you ground your club and move the grass blades down and the ball falls towards you. This is why if you grounded your club just before, it is not even a question that it is a penalty. DJ did ground the club, just not right behind the club, but the rules committee decided since there was no wind or anything else to move the ball, he probably did. If they really wanted to be dicks about it, they could have assessed two stroke penalty for not replacing the ball to the original position before playing.

It is so rare that GOT gives you what you want. Tonight was that night (and probably the last). THAT WAS SO FRIGGIN GREAT!!!

What he is saying is there is another post about this just 8 posts below.... CUMONG, MAN!

Gravity bends the space time around it. To light, it is travelling in a straight line.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||My understanding is that||
My understanding is that recent discoveries mean that bigger black holes are possible because you can go directly from gas to black holes instead of forming a star first (saving a lot of time). But even with that, there isn't enough black holes to explain dark matter.
I think the bet is still with WIMPs. Should have a better clue soon with bigger colliders like CERN.

This is not a surprise based on discussions on their football boards.

I think we can be certain that Lady Stoneheart is not making an appearance.

George, unlike the show producers, has never lied about the show or the book. He just says things like "you will see" when he does not want to reveal stuff.
|12 weeks 15 hours ago||He said he would love to see||
He said he would love to see it, but it is not happening.
And Coldhand is not Benjen. Not in the book. The show has merged several characters from the book before, but that has no effect in the books.
|12 weeks 2 days ago||The word from a recent||
The word from a recent convention is that RR denied that that is happening. I really wanted her to appear as well.

Most police pricincts recommend doing the transactions at the police station. Not going to have any problems there.

Here are just a few samples...
I was reading threads just after the coach got fired after the report. It was pretty awful.

I finally came to the same conclusion.
I always thought if something like this happened at Michigan, we would handle it "the right way". I don't believe that any more. And I disagree that it will be a subset, the majority will circle the wagon.
The tribal mentality built in to our instinct over millions of years is a hard thing to overcome. To think that you are above it all is delusional.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||Pretty much. But from the||
Pretty much. But from the opposite side. They talk about how the report is nothing but allegations with no details and no proven facts. They don't think the university should do anything until the full report is published. But that is never going to happen since this is a private university.
|12 weeks 3 days ago||We are Awful||
What I find interesting is that Baylor fans are acting exactly like Penn St fans. I checked out few of their boards and majority are upset that Briles is gone. They all blame the administrators and argue that Briles did what he was supposed to do (refer to administration), how great a guy he is and point to other players who turned out fine.
There is lack of sympathy for the victims (there is a lot of slutshaming), and most believe that Briles is the true victim in this situation.
There are also posts discussing why Baylor should bother firing Briles since they are going to get bad press either way. At least keeping Briles, they would have a good football team.
I am thinking this is the normal response by all football fans and not just PSU.
This makes me incredibly sad...

Because this gives validity to Saban''s rant the other day.
Harbaugh is under a microscope right now, which he has actively courted. You cannot make silly mistakes like this.

Look, I am the last guy to defend a guy like him. But I read the apology that was posted by the kid sounded very remorseful and contrite. And it did not look like it was composed by some lawyer.
The penalty is a joke. Misdemeanor is a joke.
But let's not write off a life of an 18 year old young man.

I want one and based on most people who are texting or browsing in car theses days, they probably want one as well.
I am just afraid that it will still be at least another decade or two before we have a true self driving car.

I agree that when the gap between us and Ohio is almost three times the gap between us and Iowa, putting us in the same category with Ohio is not accurate.
