|5 weeks 3 days ago||Ingrid Carlberg||
My citation got buried at the very end of the diary--I'll go back and cite it better. It's from "Raoul Wallenberg: The Heroic Life and Mysterious Disappearance of the Man Who Saved Thousands of Hungarian Jews from the Holocaust" by Ingrid Carlberg. Every few chapters, she'll insert a story from her own research, so this was from her interview with Peter Wallenberg in 2010.

Every test at Michigan Med School is online, and would probably be described as take-home although it must be taken in the computer lab. Not saying that's at all what happened here, just that they could be serious tests.

Based on Left Field's claim that Harbaugh's camps are a monopoly, I am quite sure I can say exactly how familiar Left Field is with antitrust case law..

Tell that to the 31.2% of applicants who are rejected, according to US News.
Cost of scholarship is definitely an inflated number, the actual cost a replacement student would pay is probably quite a bit less, but it's not like those students wouldn't get replaced.

I think the point was that there remain 35-40% of Floridians who think he's not the Zodiac killer. And what kind of a stupd state would have over one-third of the people think that?

I'm a bandwagon fan for a variety of teams. That's no sin--but being a presumably bandwagon fan, an idiot and an ass is.

It says Block M in the OP's title, but I did a little bit of digging on Frontier's site and it says that it would be an animal to represent the school, so definitely be a wolverine on the plane.

Best is one word for it. Man, that movie was painful--I've blocked enough out that I don't remember if I saw pieces of it, or the whole thing, but I'm not a lawyer, and I still didn't feel like it could be rescued from the fact that the story's entire premise is based on the most obviously false interpretation of the Constitution.
I remember being so astonished by the awful storyline that I read reviews to make sure I wasn't crazy. One review suggested that a district attorney charge someone for murder, take it to trial, and have the person be acquited because the supposed victim is still alive. According to the movie, at that point, the accused is now free to murder the victim since he can't be charged again.
Reminds me of the Tom Clancy book where Jack Ryan signed blank pardon documents so the bearer could commit any crime they wanted--even after Ryan was no longer president.

Brian said there was a decommit coming that they've known about for a while. Is this the decommit, or was this a surprise and there's another decommit still to come?

You're thinking of Jimmy Clausen.
Brookfield Zoo by Chicago recently added an exhibit with several you can walk amongst, and, from my experience, they don't bite--they seem to just like chewing on shoelaces. As a side note, the emus are in the same exhibit as the wallabies, and I may or may not have once seen Wyatt Shallman walking out of the zoo with one.

Thought you meant Snyder's "State of the State" address and came here to (1) downvote for politics and (2) find out why on earth it would be on the Players Tribune. Instead, I am wrong--carry on . . .

Crazy to think about the difference between this year and what it would have been without Rudock. So appreciative.

First, I've had multiple divorced pastors at my churches over the years--it may depend on the denomination, but it's hardly disqualifying for all. Anyone who expects their ministers to be perfect is going to be disappointed.
Second, I don't think the sig line reference meant he was listing things in order of priority, just that we can infer God is the #1 priority--which is very different the priority of being a pastor. I would guess, probably even presume, that being a pastor is simply a way to serve priority #1, and that he would listen if called to serve in another way.

I don't get excited about sponsorship, but this is an exception. I think it could get a great sponsor: The Lysol Toilet Bowl. With the loser getting bumped down a level, we can even add the tagline "Win or get flushed"
|33 weeks 4 days ago||Officiating||
The biggest argument I'd make against your point is the officiating. Think of Michigan's interception that was incorrectly called back, with an MSU touchdown at the end of that drive. Or the blatant Rudock facemask that wasn't called on the penultimate Michigan drive. Or the myriad others that went mostly against us. If that game is called well, I don't think MSU is in range to have the fluke. There are a lot of things that went right to have us in our position at the end, but a really unavoidable number of things that went wrong, too.
Plus, MSU played the way they did, and we played the way we did because of our respective special teams units. Although their kicker has redeemed himself this season, he was very shaky at the time--they went for 4th downs because they didn't feel like they had a better option. And they didn't make them in large part because Michigan has been consistently good at stopping people on 3rd and 4th downs. On the flipside, Michigan pinned them multiple times within the 20 because that's what we've done consistely all season.
That said, I had a similar feeling to what you had at the time--and I think the game felt that way because MSU had an offense that could break a big play without warning. Michigan's drives were much more slow and methodical, so it doesn't have the same "on the verge" feel. (Also, I think I hadn't gotten over the last few years emotionally and couldn't quite believe what I was seeing.)

The nonsensical comment was intentional: note the prediction that we'd go 16 and -4.
|34 weeks 5 days ago||Sure||
I think if we play twice in a season, there's the chance that the Little Brown Jug goes back and forth twice. Certainly if we only play once, it should be for the Little Brown Jug. Then again, this feels like arguing hypotheticals--I can't imagine them being in the B1G championship all that often.

Don't care if I'm too late to get the stuff, I'm guessing it anyways: 24-12 and all is right in the world.
|35 weeks 21 hours ago||Technically it was defunct||
Technically it was defunct: AnnArbor.com opened at the same time that the Ann Arbor News closed, but they were separate organizations, it wasn't just a name-change. If they had just changed names/operations, they wouldn't have been able to lay off large numbers of employees easily--instead, by shutting the News down, everyone was laid off, and then just some were rehired to AnnArbor.com. The distinction is debatable, since it's all owned by Advance Publications, but the Ann Arbor News was definitely officially closed.
I don't know as much about the switch from AnnArbor.com to Ann Arbor News in 2013, but I assume that was different, just switching names and merging operations with MLive.com

|36 weeks 1 day ago||I'm rooting for Ohio State||
Other than meteor, I am definitely rooting for Ohio State and I don't have a problem saying it, even to my Ohio State-fan coworker (who is extremely nice about it--I might clarify that she is from Ohio but didn't go to OSU).
I am rooting for Michigan's best interest, which is an Ohio State win: to put winning the Big Ten into our control, and to give us the opportunity to mirror 1969 and knock off an undefeated defending-national champion Ohio State. For bonus points, there's even a slim chance of making the CFP, and that is best increased by our beating an undefeated OSU and having MSU out of the picture.
I said this in a previous thread, but I think it's worth repeating: to me, the OSU rivalry, though it's bigger, is supposed to be a rivalry of football equals. In my perfect world, OSU is good, but we beat them. MSU is not: it's a fun rivalry, but MSU should not be good. Basically, my perfect world has John Cooper coaching Ohio State and Bobby Williams coaching MSU (or maybe John L. Smith for some extra entertainment value). OSU may be the bigger rival, but I'd love to see OSU destroy MSU, and help speed the transition to the way things are supposed to be.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||Inter-American Development Bank?||
|36 weeks 5 days ago||I agree||
OSU is the greater rivalry, but from my perspective, it is a rivalry of (football) equals. The natural order of things is for MSU to be a lesser team. Even without the B1G championship and remote playoff possibility, I'd be more upset with MSU winning and again on top of the B1G.
