There's an organization called the United States Power Squadron which has local chapters just about anywhere there's water. They offer lots of seminars and courses on things like boating safety, navigation, boat handling, weather, etc. They're the go-to people for learning just about anything a boater should know. I highly recommend taking a look if you want to get into boating.

Disagree completely. Boating at night is like boating in the day: it's quite safe if you're being safe and you know what you're doing. If you're screaming around at high speeds without lifejackets or an understanding of navigation lights or charts, which by all accounts so far is what happened, then no, it's not safe and that's what creates terrible accidents like this one.

This is a cishandedist statement. We need to recognize that handedness is not binary and be sensitive to alternative queer-handed lifestyle choices.

I would like to add negative Maryland.

You can call him anything you want, just don't call him early for practice.

As good as that stuff is, French Toast Crunch still wipes the floor with it.

I would like to add +1 to the DNTWL for Barely 20 Years At FBS Level And Not Even Ten Years Removed From The Sun Belt Conference Also Won Zero Games Last Year But Still Obnoxiously Campaigning For Big 12 Membership As If They Deserve To Be Power Five, Like Rodney Dangerfield In Caddyshack Except Not Rich Or Funny.

Therein lies the entire problem with trying to regulate over-early recruiting. People always seem to want the NCAA to ban early verbal scholarship offers and early verbal commitments, which, hey, good luck with enforcing any of that.
|2 weeks 5 days ago||Nope. The guy used the||
The guy used the ground to help him secure the ball. I mean, not intentionally, but the ball undisputably hit the ground and moved. Kinda sorta having control of the ball has never been sufficient. Replay guy got that one exactly right.

Don't forget, as Rod pointed out the other night.....since Jones got called up before September 1, he's eligible for the postseason.
And I need to add that YAAYYYY the Tigers are calling up UVA product John Hicks. Maybe he can provide some needed hitting from the catcher slot. Even though Salty did rescue the team a couple days ago. Still parked below the Mendoza line, and McCann's hitting is no great shakes this year either.

Far from it. Being the "dark horse," the "underdog," when it's "us against the world," and "nobody believes in us" but we "can't wait to prove the haters wrong" is far and away the #1 motivational tactic for the 16-25 crowd.

It's not exactly near the top, no, but if I were handed that particular lemon, the sofa-fueled outdoor heating in the winter might well be a plus in the weather department.

I'm impressed he was able to process all that.

So, nitpick just because this is the Internet: If a 2:1 run-block ratio is "decently successful," then that's not really the Mendoza line. The original Mendoza Line is a batting average of .200, referring to something above which might still be pretty bad yet acceptable, but below which is unacceptably shitty. A Mendoza line for run-block UFR's might be around 1:1.

That IS the Great Firewall. Or will be in about five seconds.

There is absolutely no chance anyone would know that's Purdue except that we were explicitly told, which fact alone makes those uniforms among the stupidest ever made.

There is literally no place in the lower 48 that I would want to live in less than I would want to live in LA.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||Truthfully, other than the||
Truthfully, other than the most rural of rural freeways - like Montana - almost every mile of interstate highway in the whole country should be a minimum of three lanes. My last drive to Chicago - on a Friday afternoon, mistake #1 - was a grueling ordeal of driving behind trucks going 61 and the people passing them going 62. That was every minute of the drive between AA and Kalamazoo.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||There will be slow people in||
There will be slow people in the middle lane either way. They might as well all drive in the same lane. That's literally the reason for having more than one lane - so that drivers who want to go the same speed can drive in one lane and drivers going a different speed can drive in another. That's how traffic flows.

Wait, do you mean this Roast Beef?
Because if so then Evans's reason-free optimism would be the polar opposite of Roast Beef.

Stupid poutine CSB: I was on my way to Toronto to fly overseas (airfare was half what it was out of Metro, yay Canadian dollars being cheap again) and decided to stop at Wendy's for lunch. Having never had poutine, I decided to have it as a side instead of regular fries. The epic dump I had to take afterwards made me almost miss my flight.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||You guys are both talking in||
You guys are both talking in the past tense for some reason. "Is." 89X is a Canadian radio station. As Canadian as moose and poutine.

The compulsory military service may be a feature, not a bug. Just think - a 100% hiring rate right out of school.

Bullshit I only see one.

I absolutely detest Kim Kardashian's trademark simpering little smile. I want to slap her fake puffy lips every time I see it.
The whole family could be wiped out of everyone's memory forever and nobody would miss anything. I will say, though: Kendall Jenner, mmmm.

Didn't say it couldn't be helpful - in very limited circumstances, yes, but it could be helpful, in cases where something like PTSD comes into play. What I said was, it could also have a negative effect on the discussion by providing a spoiler for things that are actually intended to shock.

Green has always been a highly appropriate color for them.

It's hardly fair to hold that against them, since the sport was only just invented that year.

Yes, exactly, and I do love the snowflake threads because it stops there being 20 different threads entitled "My Thoughts On The Game."
