Get the samsung series 7 with the AMD 8870 GPU. A seriously nice computer with great power and 10 hours battery for only $1200? That is a steal!

Already stated once, but look at this baby:
Better graphics than a macbook pro, comparable battery life, and half as expensive. It has a very comparable screen with similar color reproduction as the retina and better brightness if I remember right. This thing is a steal if you are looking for a 17" notebook. I'm waiting for the 15" version with the 8870 to drop in the US.

Your style reminds me of Hunter S. Thompson. I always enjoy your perspective. I agree that we are already victorious. We have won the culture war, with luck that will translate to a win on the battlefield.

They have got to do something about that, maybe a mandatory inspection by the team docter (2-3min of inspection) if a player is on the ground for more than 20 seconds.

I wonder what it says about a person when they use an ambiguous snapshot image to fill out a preconceived narrative and then try to use it to influence opinion...
Just sayin man, otherwise delightful story, would read again.

Yes I like the unretiring of the numbers. Personally, I would prefer to see my old number on the field being honored by a dedicated and talented player instead of forgotten while being hung somewhere in the stadium. This is a new tradition I am supporting completely.

"There’s no necessity to ban prepositions from the end of sentences. Ending a sentence with a preposition is a perfectly natural part of the structure of modern English."

Note that I said minimize the risk, not eliminate the risk.
Getting out of bed also puts a child at risk of encountering situations that will eventually cause neurological disorders. Proper technique will minimize the amount of accelleration the brain experiences, but you are correct that all football player's brains will experience some accelleration. The real calculation that needs to be done is the same as any other life decision, risk vs reward. In my opinion the risk of developing serious neurological disorders from playing football with proper technique (e.g. avoiding head to head contact, no blows to the head, no clipping, ect) is lower than the potential reward from participating in a sport that is educational, challanging, and immensely satisfying. I gained so much self respect from my experience and developement during football that I became a much better student, citizen, and family member. I learned lessons about team work that I still apply today. I would hate to prevent my children from having the same experience.
If my child wants to participate I don't think the risk of developing neurological disorders is so much higher than normal that it justifies banning them from participation. Of course everyone has their own estimation of the potential risk vs the potential reward. For me personally, I don't think the extra risk justifies banning the sport and forgoing all the positives that can be gained from playing football.
Some here suggest that some sports offer safer alternatives, I don't doubt that many of the lessons I learned from football could have been learned from another sport. However, I did not have the opportunity or the motivation to play a sport for which I was unskilled and unsuited. Playing basketball at a high level wasn't an option for me, I have the physique of a wrestler. If I had chosen to play another sport instead of football I would have missed out on a lot of the value I gained by playing a sport for which I had both interest, motivation and skill. If my child is excited and motivated to play football, I will encourage him or her. I will demand proper technique be used in an attempt to minimize the possibility of neurological disorder as any parent should, but with the evidence at hand I cannot come to the conclusion that the increased risk is worth forgoing all the value that can come from football.

I disagree that track and cross country has as much emphasis on the team work. Football success requires team work and self sacrifice, while attaining track success is very possible without a strong supporting cast.

Yes, if played with correct technique the risk can be minimized. I gained a whole lot from my time playing, it really changed my life for the better. If my son or daughter wants to play and has the opportunity, who am I to take that away?
