There should be a term for finding enjoyment in the pain of others. Something really silly sounding... Something like... Schadenfreude.

Do you have organs? I'm 5'3" 140 and wear 28 waist pants.

An intelligent symmetrical all wheel drive imported Forrester with a horizontally opposed boxer engine (lower center of gravity) outperforms your Ford escape in every condition. American auto technology is a decade behind Japanese and German. Their ecoboost engines are obsolete Mazda engines.

You will get that with any German car. It is the reason I prefer to own Japanese myself.

Ford Focus (Focus ST)...Mazda 3 (Speed3)... Subaru Impreza...Subaru WRX (STI) [Subaru recently split this from the Impreza line]... Volkswagon Golf (Golf GT)... Volvo V60... Audi (many)
There are plenty of hot hatch options in the US. And they are all awesome.
edit: unless you meant the US manufacturers dont have many hatchback options in the US. Then i agree with you. Ford sells an AWD Focus in Australia that I would LOVE to drive.

The Japanese car makers were among the first to change their paradigm from cost savings to value creation.

Yeah I've never been particularly impressed by BMW. Give me an Audi or a Subaru any day.

I'll take a symmetrical all wheel drive Japanese or German import with a lower center of gravity when the roads are slick and ice covered.

"The distraction of competition."
I just... Sigh.

To be clear, they don't HAVE to go to college. They can go play in Europe or Asia for a year like Brandon Jennings. Correct me if I'm wrong but the one year rule is an NBA rule designed to prevent teams from making terrible investments in players like Kwame Brown.

I won't neg you because this is a thread dedicated to unpopular opinions, but I hate your idea.
The end result would be counter to your intention. Watch an international friendly where unlimited subs happen. Once teams start implementing multiple substitutions the players are no longer in sync and offenses suffer massively. The game becomes puntball and is not fun to watch.

1. Soccer penalty shoot outs are boring.
2. Johan Cruyff is the best player of all time. Pele isn't even on the to 3. (Messi at #2 closing the gap on Cruyff, George Best #2)

Lived in Minnesota for years. I actually miss the place. No one knows cold and snowy like Minnesotans. Makes you tougher.
Also the summer sunsets at 10pm are pretty sweet.
Okay I'm just realizing I might enjoy Canada.
I should go to Vancouver.
Oh, to answer the original question, macallan 18
Edit-this is supposed to be in response to the Minnesotan conversation above. Screw you, Internet.

Neat. But this is data 100% out of context. What about QB's from Florida? Ohio? What about other positions?
How can one draw any conclusions from this?
It is also a statistical fallacy to suggest that this means any QB from Texas has a one-third chance of being successful at the school he originally signed with.

I was at that game. The fury in the Michigan stands was beyond palpable. It looked worse in person.

The ankle pick is the best takedown. Especially when you also have an effective low single.

Approaching this as a victory is really disgustingly disrespectful to the victims.
I don't care whether the wins should have been revoked, whether they still should be, or anything of the like.
Nothing about this situation should be celebrated.
Fuck penn state.
