|6 days 1 hour ago||Yeah||
I just downloaded it so I could play with my son. I am looking forward to wasting time learning about something that came out after my time originally (Pokemon) and now is having a resurgence. Being cool has nothing to do with it....

Not mutually exclusive.

Awww,.... shucks. Peanut's gone.

Thanks for all your hard work. WHile we could sit here for hours pointing out potential problems with the probablities generated by your sources, they stand as the best quantifiable analysis available anywhere.
Overall, ths makes me feel more confident about the Rutgers game and less confident about the Indiana game.
Also, I think "wearing down" and talented or well coached back ups play a HUGE role in winning the B1G title. I wish that could be incorporated into the source stats somehow. BUt, my feeling is that consistancy in coaching staff over the years helps with that the most. Michigan's back ups should be better "coached up" as a result of Harbaugh's system setting in better.....

and the minimum is pretty high too.

The taxes he pays depends on whether he maintains citizenship in the USA or some other country. If he is a US citizen, he pays US taxes no matter where he works unless he makes under the minimum.

Yes. You can't pay someone's taxes without that amount being considered income....

It appears he has anger management issues.

1. Seniors driving too slow who can't see over the wheel or react.
2. Many immigrants somewhat new to driving big highways.
3. Tourists meandering around.
These combined on the highways are insanity.

So is this supposed to imply that O'Korn is the chosen heir at the QB position?
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Where does this stat come||
Where does this stat come from? Where does the one dollar come from? This seems to hide the real issue. What England got was not supposed to be direct payments back from the EU. The benefits of membership are very real,but also hard to quantify. I guess people prefer quick simple stats to acknowledging that other things are more important. I wonder how looking at things solely in terms of ROI would work n in other complicated situations. What do I get from funding the police? What is the return on investment in my children? Wha does Michigan football give me in terms of dollars back?

The DA said the search was bad... according to the poster who raised the issue.
I guarantee he knows more about LA law than you. sorry Charlie.
As for not enforcing every law on the books, there are a while lot of obselete laws on the books that are never enforced. Do you think we should be enforcing them?
Yes, prosecutors are obsessed with their winning percentage. Shitty cases rarely go to trial unless there is some outside reason to pursue it.
I am not sure if you're a lawyer or not, but your failure to grasp the reality of prosecutorial discretion and wildly opining on LA law makes me thinj.... no
|4 weeks 6 days ago||don't pretend to know||
the facts or law of Louisiana. Look at the press reports about it.
|5 weeks 1 hour ago||It appears||
the stolen handgun charge had to be droppped because it was the product of an illegal search.
So, it was just about smoking dope in a car.

I can't stand Bernie Sanders, but if you "feel the burn".... I recommend some cream to remove it.

Anyone who is armed poses a danger to everyone they come in contact with, but this country doesnt see it that way. So....
Smoking weed doesn't increase your chances of violence. In fact, it may decrease it.
Maybe they pose more of a danger to themselves through an accident, but definitely not to the public.
As for the conotations of "chillin in the hood..." I am going to ignore any implication and simply state that, if it was a bad area, then their gun possession (at least for the permitted guns) seems more justified.
|5 weeks 1 hour ago||Guns||
I think they are inherently dangerous. They are designed for one purpose. Large knives are also dangerous. In fact, the car itself is pretty dangerous.
Were the kids holding the guns or were they just in the car? Was it a gun rack (hey its the south)? Were the guns loaded? IDK.
Anyway, you don't see many potheads or kids who are smoking weed get violent... its not cocaine or anything. Weed doesnt make people want to waive the f*$%king gun around.
We are really stretching for facts to make this look sinister,
|5 weeks 1 hour ago||Who is upset over this?||
A Louisiana DA decides not to charge two Bama players and this raises some kind of suspicion of favoritism?
A judge slaps a Stanford swimmer on the wrist for sexual assualt and people think this case is one for concern. Consider:
1. Marijuana laws are often not enforced. In 10 years those laws will look like sodomy laws, relics of a bygone era. There is little reason to push those misdemeanor charges.
2. The only felony is the possession of a stolen firearm. It was brought against Robinson. Was there enough evidence to prove it?
That felony is not based on strict liability. The DA would have to show inentional possession of a firearm "under circumstances which indicate that the offender knew or should have known that the firearm was the subject of a robbery or theft." So, did he know? How can they prove that? Was the serial number filed off? Did someone tell him? Did his friend steal it? Or did he simply not know?
EDIT: Someone points out that the gun itself was obtained by a wrongful search. So, the gun cant even be used as evidence. There is no way the DA could have won on the only felony count if that is true.
A DA wont bring charges if they can't win.
Nothing to see here.
|5 weeks 1 hour ago||DANGEROUS felonies?||
What part of marijuana possession and/or use is dangerous?
In fact, there was only ONE felony charged and that was against Robinson. It was for possession of a stolen firemarm.
Possession of a firearm in not a "dangerous" offense -- at least not in this country.

Maybe the kid likes football and not swimming. You are more likely to keep up with a sport if you enjoy it. It's not like you can make your kid enjoy a different sport...
|5 weeks 2 days ago||Plus1 to you. Thanks for the||
Plus1 to you. Thanks for the reply. Not many people here big enough to do that. Also, don't text and drive.
|5 weeks 2 days ago||what?||
1. you linked to a proposal for a study.
2. it is a proposal sponsored by the players union in the midst of multi million dollar legislation.
3. there is no actual study in the link.
4. you also use baseless adjectives to describe the two studies.
Your position is hollow... like your debate skillz.

your son to live a longer life. The data from NIH shows former football players live longer than non-players (except fat linemen).
The benefits to your health outweigh the risks.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Money||
Well, money has an effect on the product. In sports with weak salary caps and/or weak revenue sharing, getting more money for a team MAY mean better players and/or coaches.
I would rather see the Wings have top dollar coaches from the minors to the majors, as well as luxury planes, etc. that attract top level talent (if salary is equal) then see an arena with a great non-corporate name. Its just how the world works. Now, if they could make it work without selling the naming rights, ala Lambeau Field, etc. then all the better.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||How about ...||
Maybe the rink? Maybe a statue outside the new arena?
Its just that they very recently picked a new name, so naming rights seems unlikely.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||Donny, you're out of your element.||
I never said I "can't understand why anybody would be in favor of naming an NHL arena in Detroit after Gordie Howe." In fact, I told OP that I did understand.
I questioned why the Illitch family would do it in light of the circumstances.
You just pretended I made a ridiculous point and then cited my "commenting history" as your reason for being a jerk.
I don't get personl too often, but you are acting like a tool, buddy. Go get started on the weekend now and leave the keyboard.
|6 weeks 3 days ago||I get it||
I know you really liked him. But, this seems weird. The owners just announced a new name. They did not bid it out and used their own company name for legacy reasons.
Why would they name it after Gordie Howe? Just because he passed away today? That seems a little reactionary.
|7 weeks 1 day ago||You're right. By that time||
You're right. By that time the machines will have oppressed human life and few will remember the name Harbaugh.
|7 weeks 4 days ago||Bad idea IMO||
1. How many captains can they predict? How many Heisnmans? Does every kids card say the same thing? If not, do they get jealous of each others fake accolades?
2. Seems like the type of thing that will either bring unrealistic expectations of seeing the field or just plain shame when the stats don't pan out.
I like the idea of trading cards, but the predictive stats seem like a bad addition.
|8 weeks 3 days ago||yeah...||
I have no idea. Just guessing...
