Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."

I don't understand the downvotes. Why is it a bad thing to say that I don't believe in smoking anything (pot, cigarettes, pipes, etc.)? It's bad for your gums, teeth, lungs, makes you smell, etc. So no, I don't smoke ANYTHING (including cigars) and never will.

Babson is a fantastic school if you want to study business. There are some "specialty" colleges that focus in specific areas. In engineering, Harvey Mudd is about as good as you can get. Think of Michigan's engineering program as a standalone college and you have Harvey Mudd, or Michigan's business school as a standalone college and you have Babson.

on being bored when running - i get dreadfully bored when running on a treadmill or on a track. I need to be going somewhere. When you go out to the street or trail and run 20 minutes away from home or your car, well, you need to get back somehow, so you may as well run so you get there as fast as possible. On a track or treadmill, too easy to give into the temptation to just stop whenever.
On the knees hurting - what kind of shoes do you wear? I'm frankly a big believer in minimalist shoes for many people. I've run probably a couple hundred miles in my Merrell Trail Gloves which are anatomical shaped (narrow heel counter, wide toe box) and have zero heel to toe drop with no cushion. This is in stark contrast to conventional running shoes which are heavily cushioned and have a severe heel to toe drop (meaning the heel is much thicker than the forefoot). biomechanics research shows that wearing these kinds of shoes (or running barefoot - which I don't do) actually supports a mid-foot or fore-foot strike, rather than a more "conventional" heel strike. This has the benefit of distributing the impact through your foot and lessening the jarring impact through your ankles, knees, and back.
It is important to transition slowly into minimalist running, as it utilizes your calves much more and stretches your achilles more as well. Do some research if you go this route, but one of my good friends went this route after we talked several times about it and he's now a convert. He's gone from conventional running shoes and dealing with knee and back pain after long runs, to minimal shoes and much less knee and back pain. He attributes it to the shoes and different running style.
Also, minimalist shoes are good for crossfit, particularly lifting where it's beneficial to have your feet completely flat.

Who knows how many parents complained in the past, or how many kids quit, and nobody ever heard about it. Maybe Waters is a scapegoat with the new president trying to make his mark, but at the end of the day, it was the right thing to do.
Of course, I'm also of a firm belief that the kids involved should also be punished for violating the student code of conduct.
Prohibited conduct includes:

There are some real die-hards commenting on the article that this is completely normal and acceptable behavior, and that anyone who does not like it should just say no or quit the band. That many of the commenters supporting this behavior are alums of "TBDBITL" (abbreviation for "the best damn band in the land") is also quite telling.
The fact that the fired band director is also an osu marching band alum is telling. Perhaps he, too, was jaded or accepting of the fact that this sort of behavior goes on. Either way, 2 years should have been PLENTY of time to change the culture, if he really wanted to.

It would be great if you (jonvalk) could also give a little explanation of the thought process of how you came up with a particular theme, design, motif, whatever. I find that I enjoy that as much as the end products themselves. Thanks!

City qualifying and city finals have no time limit (first round). The second round (first round of the finals in vegas) has a time limit. Third round has no time limit. Fourth and final round at Mt Midoriyama (if it's like Sasuke - the original Japanese show - nobody has gotten there on ANW so far) should have a time limit.

Draymond Green, Cody Zeller, and Victor Oladipo. So that's 5/11 from the Big Ten. Not bad.

Rodrigo y Gabriela are pretty darn awesome
So are Strunz and Farah, a very eclectic classical guitar duo with rock, jazz, flamenco, latin influences.
I've been listening to these guys a lot lately.

As you're a noob to the show, it should be noted that this is her 3rd time (I believe) appearing on this show, and she is dating a guy (Brent Steffensen) who, although failing in his attempt this year, is a so-called "legend" of the sport. She's been doing dedicated full-time obstacle course and ninja warrior training for the last couple of years, so she does have an advantage over many competitors in that respect.
Not to diminish her accomplishment, b/c her lack of physical stature is something significant to overcome, but she's not just some random super-fit woman they found on the street.

Great power-to-weight ratio. Can't wait to see what your ant can do on the course. The jumping obstacles might be a little tough, though. May go with a drone ant with wings?

The pole grasper jump was pretty impressive. Great coordination. The thing that struck me is that all the guys who seemed to leap for the 2nd to last pole did so out of desperation and the hands tended to completely miss the pole. Kacy Catanzaro seemed to do so more intentionally than desperately (if that makes sense). Also, the leap on the previous obstacle (can't remember what it's called - tilting something) was pretty sweet.
Did I mention that my 6 and 8 year old daughters LOVE the show?
