|2 hours 49 min ago||Considering...||
Considering that, per an article I read earlier, the average SpaceX launch is about a $57 million proposition, I am willing to bet that private citizens that wish to fly around the Moon are going to pay something in the 7-figure range. I could be wrong, but I have to think that they try to recover a little of that launch cost.

Actually, I am half-surprised he didn't start this thread himself, given that he does follow Michigan athletics and beyond right down to knowing who is on the signout sheet for the projectors in Weidenbach Hall.
|7 hours 6 min ago||For Some Reason...||
For some reason, I am reminded of the voting shenanigans in the Blackadder episode "Dish And Dishonesty" here, given the reported statistics -
"First thing I can tell you is that the voter turnout has been very good. As a matter of fact, the voter turned out before breakfast."
|9 hours 16 min ago||I Couldn't Wear Them...||
I couldn't wear them for that reason - the majority of the wear on my shoes is classic for people who overpronate - heel and forefoot wear - so those shoes would probably kill my feet. On the upside, I am proud of my extremely flexible feet, a feature which is fairly common in those who overpronate as well.
|11 hours 12 min ago||Purdue...||
Purdue is among the least offensive members of the conference - I don't know that I've ever had a single problem with them honestly....aside from a momentary bout of frustration when they beat us in hoops, but that's every team. Of course, some teams far more than others, but point being Purdue is way down the list when it comes to such things.

It is one of the last spoken lines in this sketch:
|1 day 2 min ago||I Have One...||
I would want to have Mario Impemba's job just to see how much snark I can throw in Rod Allen's direction before he snaps and leaves the broadcast, then I could get someone that I could actually talk to about baseball.
|1 day 2 hours ago||You Know...||
You know, we actually had such a thread about two years ago, if memory serves. As you might expect, people were not exactly appreciative of the idea that someone wanted to appreciate appreciation. I can't imagine why they would react that way (this is a lie), but you know, all you can do as the creator of the thread is try, eh?

That theme was iconic as themes from the 80s go....
|1 day 7 hours ago||Very Sad News...||
BIll Paxton was one of only two people that had the distinct honor of being killed by an Alien, a Terminator and a Predator, but he was part of so many memorable films and so many mememorable roles. Very sad news indeed, especially on Oscar morning.
RIP, Bill Paxton.
|1 day 9 hours ago||I Remember Too...||
I was not quite college aged yet, but I remember this as well because we had a neighbor that worked for the Observer & Eccentric, one of the papers owned by Phil Power's company at the time (Suburban Communications Corporation, I think - I remember it was in Livonia). They heard about it fairly quickly as well.
|1 day 12 hours ago||That Quote...||
She said the scandal is over and she would send her daughter to the private Christian university, claiming the “problems we have at Baylor are no different than the problems at any other school in America.”
Not sure which universities that Coach Mulkey has actually visited, but I have a feeling virtually all of them would resent the implication that their issues are at a Baylor level of problematic.

|2 days 2 hours ago||Well, Well...||
I had to watch most of the game from a restaurant as it is my wife's birthday, but yes, this is one of those very nice, very timely, and very helpful wins when it comes to resume and seeding, so what a nice start to everyone's now stress-free hoops evening.
|2 days 5 hours ago||From ESPN...||
From ESPN's article here - LINK:
The report stated Mayfield had slurred speech, had difficulty walking down stairs and was covered in food on the front of his clothing. According to the report, when the officer asked Mayfield to come over, he began to walk away.
Apparently, all this after an altercation which initiated the call too. Yikes.
|2 days 8 hours ago||Interesting...||
I think I gleaned the same thing out of this as others did then - Harbaugh really does appreciate the lessons learned from competition and the losses that it will occasionally bring, but the man hates losing itself with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind, I am sure. He is one of those few coaches that seems to honestly learn from every single little in-game decision and soak in the totality of his environment too.
|2 days 11 hours ago||Actually...||
Actually, in the spirit of the first post in the thread, I believe the correct question is "Wh?", but I could be mistaken. Either way, news about Michigan assistants - current and former - is definitely not off topic at any time during the year.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Another One...||
I was about to say - another WD avatar / persona on the board? Maybe that purchase of the "I Don't Even Guide For Dummies" was a smart purchase for the mod game after all, and I am rather serious about that too.

I thought this had been official for a few weeks, but if I remember now, the reason was never disclosed and it was only a pervasive rumor that he would be on the way out. Now, it is official, I suppose, and yeah, for a quite legitimate reason too.
|3 days 6 hours ago||Aw, Man...||
Aw, man, that clip cut it out....
"What did you do?"
"I turned off the wall."
"No you didn't! You turned off the whole movie!"
"I must have pressed the wrong button!"
|3 days 6 hours ago||My Guess...||
My guess is that the device playing the video is being filmed while looking downward, or this is some symbolism worthy of Kubrick's praise. I actually hope it is the latter, that way for generations we can debate the meaning of the laundry basket in the shot.
|3 days 10 hours ago||You Know...||
In the play-by-play data, the play is listed as this: Draymond Green lost ball turnover (Blake Griffin steals)
Well, sometimes the stats and the play data fail to appreciate....uh....."effort"? No, that's not the right word here....hmm....

....and Mrs. LSA's birthday is tomorrow too. Let's start the party now, eh?
|3 days 23 hours ago||I Have One...||
It's not insanely weird, but it is actually a really good combination - salami and grapes. It is another one of those really good salty / sweet combos that just seems to work. I discovered it at a work function and have been using it as a snack for years now.

Oh, beautiful. The things that games involving Rutgers cause people to do, eh?
Did you stay at the Embassy Suites or at the Embassy Sweets down the road?

Now I have this image of the SEC that looks like this:

Way Way OT - New Planets Discovered
Already covered. Even space news does not escape the board's notice very often.
|4 days 8 hours ago||Although...||
Although this does give me an idea for a Word Of The Day thread for the portion of the OT period where we give people a word like that and then ask them to use it in foul and salacious sentences. I think we could even get enough for a "Best Of" in August.
|4 days 8 hours ago||Now That You Mention It...||
Now that you mention it, I was just in a meeting staring at walls for about two hours, and now having to relive the end of that game in my head, I can go back to staring at walls. You are right, of course - it was extremely fun.,...and then.....yeah, it wasn't suddenly.
