...is the 90th percentile, and $300K is the 95th percentile for household income. Household median income is $52K.
I would to consider oneself middle class if they were more around the median, and the top 5-10% would be... wealthy. Happy to reserve extraordinarily wealthy and disgustingly wealthy for the 1 percenters, which I understand to be some sort of motorcycle gang.

...has varied historically. Myy dumb high school self probably only got in because the regents were under pressure from the legislature to justify State investment in UM by increasing the proportion of in-state students through lower admission standards. Similar thing happened before the final Grutter decision with transfer applicants.

...or something, Michigan University is what Tressel is now calling us. Something about that's how Woody did it.
This direspect is obviously infuriating and only stokes the rivalry.

Honestly, just wind up the throttle and if you crash into the back of the cab at least you are out of sight of Aunt Mel and her damn camcorder.

It takes humility to realize you have a problem, and humility is something we haven't seen much from him in the past. I hope the kid get his life in order and we will all find that personality traits that we have all found so repugnant were symptoms of his illness.

|3 weeks 4 days ago||Maybe it's insecurity...||
...or maybe it's just a rivalry. I wish we were at full strength and playing better. I don't wish for a day when we play Michigan State and the the post-game interviews, blog posts and Twitter responses dispassionately discuss the results as if it was just one of thirty-some games played annually by a bunch of twenty year olds.

|6 weeks 4 days ago||Tied with Rush at 8 sacks.||
Same for Calhoun as last year. And MSU had 10 more as a team this year (42) than last (32). So it's hard to call his year mediocre - he was certainly getting more attention and double teams which opened up defensive opportunities elsewhere.
And I think we would agree the touchdowns he scored last year were lucky, if we can also agree that lucky DEs are those who spend a lot of time hugging quarterbacks...

...which is what most people are referencing, the Beats headphones were designed to compensate for the low end losses that murdered the sound of rap and r&b tracks played off mp3s. Beats cans are somewhat more neutral nowadays, but obviously still have that stigma which irks those who are not Beats' target consumer (Michigan fans are not Beats consumers practically by definition).
If you want cost-effective, high quality over the ear headphones get some Sennheisers/Grados/Audio Technicas. Bose are fine but also seriously overpriced and tailored for older ears. And whatever you do, don't get high fidelity studio monitors - unless you are listening to lossless music everything will sound like it is coming out Grapentine's PA.
