|1 day 10 hours ago||Ditto for me||
never have, never will. Although I have been high twice in my life. Once was a few years ago at Pine Knob at a Kid Rock concert. There was a blue haze everywhere and it smelled like skunk. I should have worn a gas mask but that would have impeeded my dranking ability.
|4 days 5 hours ago||Maybe, but||
one needs to look at the criteria. Money used educational quality, affordability and alumni earnings. Maybe Yale took a hit because of affordability? tuition is $182K for Yale vs $82K for BYU when both schools have $50K for salary after 5 years. BYU is a better bang for the buck.
|4 days 5 hours ago||I agree with this assessment.||
I am a White Collar Automotive Engineer. The reputation of Michigan is very high. Many HR Managers have a very high opinion of Michigan even though many of these HR Managers did not attend Michigan.
One HR Manager told me that all he needed to see was a Degree from Michigan and that person was hired regardless of position. I know of several Michigan grads with non related (History, Art) degrees working in the technical side of the Automotive Industry.
He avoided MSU and EMU grads like the plague. He had a postive opinion of CMU, Ferris, NMU and Lake State. I am not sure his rationale was reasonable though.
|4 days 5 hours ago||The Times Higher||
ranking (not to be confused with High Times) is heavily focused on acedemics. I think it is a better measure of how well the school educates its students and how that education is perceived world wise. I wonder what ranking High Times would give us?
The USN&WR's rankings are a joke because they factor in such things as quality of life, access to public transportation, the number of pizza places within walking distance, intermural sports etc. Now these things are all important but the #1 reason to go to school is to get educated. Partying should be #21 on the list of priorities (IMO).
This is the first time I looked at Money's rankings. It seems reasonable to me but East Coast schools will be heavily favored. I will have to spend a little more time on this list.

Dr. Susan Murphy's statistic class(es). Luck is another word for randomness.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Hi MGO||
I live in Port Huron and I have done this trip a few times as a passenger, never as a Captain. EZ Bud is correct. It is all basedon the weather. Bad weather = unhappy Momma.
The Customs and Immigration issue is quite simple. If you are going to be registered at Canada immigration and the vessel departs from Sarnia, you can traverse the waterway without any issues. Techically you will NOT leave Canada as the waterway is dual owned.
The issue becomes when you step on land in the US. If you have a mechanical or medical issue you MUST call US Coast Guard Station and identify a problem. They will give you direction but your Captain should know this. You never want to stop at Sans Souci Bar on Harsen's Island or Gars in Marine City for a few. Has it been done before without any issues? Sure. Have I stopped in Canada for 1 or 10 without declaring???? (5th Amendment protection here).
As long as the vessell meets the regulation for life jackets, navigation lights etc and everyone has passports; you will be golden. Make sure to take your jacket, even in 80 degree heat because she can get cold very quickly.
If you have a few minutes, give me a shout and I will buy you that beer that I owe you. Have fun nonetheless.
|5 weeks 23 hours ago||You are right||
about one point. Narduzzi gets more out of 3 star players than most, if not all, DC. Once Narduzzi leaves for a HC position, Danni will take msu back to where they belong.
|5 weeks 23 hours ago||Yea but||
you miss the entire DB Game-Day Experience.
All kidding aside, there is nothing better (IMO) than a fall afternoon, throwing the pigskin around on the golf course, with ribs on the smoker and cold beer in the cooler, with family and close friends.
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Great point||
Michigan fans are very loyal. Carr was significantly less than 50% in covering the spread. Vegas adjusts the line based on how people are betting. There were several times where I took the opponent and the points against a rabid Michigan Fan. I still rooted for my team to win, and I made some money along the way...classic win-win.
I would like to see the data for the past 25 years. What percentage of games did we cover (or not cover) the spread? My guess is about 35-40% but that is just a guess. I dont have time to crunch this data. I am working on another data collection project currently.
|7 weeks 5 hours ago||This might||
be a slight over-statement.
|7 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks||
for the post. I am ashamed to admit that I did not know about this.
Aidan will be a beast for sure. I bet she bats 4th behind Romo. I cannot wait to see her this fall.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Ditto for me||
As a history buff, the first 2 episodes were dry. I did some independant research on Woodahl and the clan, which kept my interest. I committed to all 6 episodes.
So far it has been historically accurate save the romance with Anna but it is plausable.
I recommend this to anyone who enjoys history. Simcoe is a little over the top but his portrail may be accurate.
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Is this a "Title says it all" Thread?||
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Done!||
Thanks MGBM for this. Romo is at 24% now but is not likely to beat the lovely Ms. Beard. Wow.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||There are||
a few good seats left in the Victors Section. I scored 2 extra seats for PSU. I plan on dontating the Miami tix to charity.
|9 weeks 6 hours ago||Well I||
was more on the "Title Says It All" Mantra.
|9 weeks 2 days ago||Agreed||
Had we won, Romo would have received many more votes.
|9 weeks 6 days ago||Again, I accept||
|9 weeks 6 days ago||MgrowOld...Are you still||
in Alpena? So am I. Lets hook up for a beer.
|10 weeks 43 min ago||I take||
|10 weeks 2 hours ago||thx.||
who is pitching for both teams?
|10 weeks 2 hours ago||score please?||
|10 weeks 4 hours ago||this is||
no problem. we can do it.
|10 weeks 5 hours ago||keep posting||
scores please. I am traveling now. thx.
|10 weeks 23 hours ago||The pressure||
is certainly on FSU. They are down from this ass whopping. Softball is a fickle game. The blow out could actually affect their game tomorrow. They could give up just as easy in game 2.
I will be traveling tomorrow so I will not see the game.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Actually no||
I will have to look it up but I bet it has been years since 3 Big Ten teams were in the WS. Maybe never. B1G has improved its softball. We can now be compared to Big 12 and SEC.
The PAC 12 still dominates however.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Hell I want some love||
too. Great job by the Lovely Ladies in Blue.
Now Coach will not let this get to the girls heads. Lets come back tomorrow and win 1-0.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Nebraska 4-2 over Bama||
in the second.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Great mercy rule win||
for the Lovely Ladies in Blue.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Softball is not an||
"in your face" sport like the men's sports. Once you have the mercy rule in effect, the winning coach is expected not to steal or send a runner home on a passed ball or ball in the outfield.
Now of course if the batters keep hitting there is not much Coach Hutch can do. But on that hit to the outfield, she held the runner at third when the runner could have easily scored.
Gotta love Coach Hutch
