Deep Thoughts

by Jack Handy

If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

 

08/25/2012 - 6:19pm I went to this game and

I went to this game and watched the first three quarters.  Shane started out a little shaky with a pic and some throw that got away from him, but seemed to settle in nicely as DLS pulled away.  Seeing his arm, ball, and feet in person was pretty impressive.  He had a few great medium range sideline lasers throws.

Ditka v. a hurricane, but the hurricane is named Ditka.

08/17/2012 - 4:13pm Getting settled in Ann Arbor

Getting settled in Ann Arbor and preparing for grad school.  Also, I got me a job today, so there's that.  Great day so far.

There are many great avatars on MGoBlog, but everytime I see Dawson crying my day is made better.

Pure awesomeness.

This is awesome and brings back my wonderful TMNT memories.  Well done.

I started building a bomb shelter.

That girl's face is priceless.

Dinner at Seva in A2 with Atwater Pale Ale, and now Blue Light while watching the Olympics and Tigers.

Also, the Rangers Jerseys are terrible - they look like pajamas.

I'd go with Short's Wizard

08/10/2012 - 2:30pm No, just go to the reception

No, just go to the reception desk to the immediate right and ask someone for one.  They have them behind the desk.

08/10/2012 - 2:23pm I just picked one up from the

I just picked one up from the ticket office.  I think it's pretty cool.  They still have plenty, but they may not last long as OP wrote.  They also have a mini BigTen schedule with all the teams schedules listed, and a mini Michigan schedule for the taking.

I started rolling when I saw that.  He looks like he is riding a horse.

08/09/2012 - 10:41pm I'm not sure Howard is that

I'm not sure Howard is that much better than Bynum.  He is probably the best big man defender, but his offense is lacking.

08/08/2012 - 8:43pm Good Point

I read that a couple times to make sure I didn't misread it, as it seems low for total payback.  Perhaps if funders really like the idea's potential, they plan on increasing financial investment with greater return potential.

08/05/2012 - 12:56am Moved to AA today, so

Moved to AA today, so unpacking and getting settled while enjoying some Newcastle.

08/01/2012 - 9:12am All-conference in tennis

All-conference in tennis during high school, although my team sucked and each school had to have at least one representative.

07/30/2012 - 12:18pm Another variable to consider

Another variable to consider - which may skew the offer list data - is how open a player's recruitment may be?  A reason why Shane doesn't have as many big-time offers is likely due to the facts that he was committed early and is U-M all-the-way, so teams that may otherwise have offered him decided there was no point to do so.

07/28/2012 - 5:42pm I have a going away party

I have a going away party tonight, so I will probably be forced to drink a variety and a lot.

07/28/2012 - 5:30pm Or perhaps he knew they

Or perhaps he knew they wouldn't be able to land him anyway, and just wanted to save face - they seem to have many non-commitable offers, especially those which U-M lands.

07/26/2012 - 9:07pm Seems like disciplinary

Seems like disciplinary action in line with Hoke's message about the higher standard of being a Michigan Man.

07/26/2012 - 6:48pm There is still much to play

There is still much to play out in Fitz's case and these decision's involve multiple variables, but I think he should be suspended at least one game if the charges are correct.  Michigan should lead the entire NCAA in character and integrity, which I think Hoke did with his corrective actions last years. 

07/24/2012 - 1:11pm Welcome Aboard, Mr. Douglas

Is our total class still expected to be 24?  I'm wondering if the numbers have changed with everythign going on.

07/20/2012 - 10:26pm I enjoyed the same last

I enjoyed the same last weekend.  It seems like their bottles go down faster than others.

07/20/2012 - 10:11pm Miller Light for me, and

Miller Light for me, and possibly a mass quantity.  I'm dog-sitting for my dad, and this damn dog pisses everywhere (including my socks and shoes) except outside.

07/20/2012 - 4:25pm All the best to Stonum. 

All the best to Stonum.  Hopefully he has learned from the past, and is looking toward a bright future.

07/13/2012 - 8:04pm A couple shandys then High

A couple shandys then High Life, which isn't as bad as I remember it being.

07/13/2012 - 2:42pm I moved to a new office

I moved to a new office today, which is cool.  What sucks is the person there prior didn't properly clean up, so I have a bunch of shit I don't know what to do with.

Wedding of friend this weekend in Lansing.  I believe it has an open bar, so I will have to make sure I don't have too much fun.

Caddyshack 2 was absolutely criminal. 

07/12/2012 - 6:58pm I have seen chatter on 247

I have seen chatter on 247 Sports about Shaq Wiggins flipping from Georgia to Auburn, which is where I first saw the Foster rumors a few weeks ago.  Wiggins is no Foster, but definitely a solid talent.

A highlight film is just that, but he is wow.

07/12/2012 - 6:48pm USC is also right behind

USC is also right behind U-M.  There is still a lot to shake out before all is said and done.

07/12/2012 - 4:23pm I thought maybe OT,

I thought maybe OT, but figured big news about an upcoming opponent (even though not game-related) and huge recruiting news (consensus top 5 player flips) was on-topic.

However, I'm still a bit fresh to the MGo world.

07/11/2012 - 10:42am I have seen a lot of chatter

I have seen a lot of chatter on the 247 boards about Foster flipping to Auburn - from Alabama and Auburn fans.

Oberon now, Pabst later.

07/06/2012 - 11:10am If Federer wins the final and

If Federer wins the final and regains the #1 ranking at his age it would be pretty damn remarkable, especially considering Nadal and Djokovic are going to also go down as greats.

07/04/2012 - 12:25am Wow, how does this even

Wow, how does this even happen, especially to a school with some tradition?  Sad day for A&M fans.

06/30/2012 - 7:07pm I so hope this is accurate,

I so hope this is accurate, as it seemed this ship was sailing away quickly.

06/29/2012 - 10:57pm Holy shit.  It is a longshot

Holy shit.  It is a longshot to consider that this is why Penn St. hired him.

06/29/2012 - 3:48pm T-minus one hour or so for

T-minus one hour or so for me.  I am eagerly awaiting some cold beers.

06/29/2012 - 12:17pm Wow, that is a huge wedding. 

Wow, that is a huge wedding.  The biggest I have been to was about 300.

06/29/2012 - 12:15pm I think you can buy booze

I think you can buy booze there (and other membership clubs) without a membership because of alcohol regulations, though I may be wrong.

06/29/2012 - 12:13pm Compiling information on new

Compiling information on new clients and creating files for them - pretty boring stuff, but it passes the time.

Now big weekend plans.  I actually have to work Saturday afternoon for a special organizational event, which should actually be a good time.

06/28/2012 - 8:04pm I'm not committed to working

I'm not committed to working and certainly want to maximize my experience at Ford, but would like to have some inflow of income.  That being said, I received a fellowship and scholarship which should cover most of my tuition expenses this year; so, I may just tap into my savings for living expenses and work to obtain a GSI position for my second year if I can't find any promising employment opportunities.

Many thanks for the thorough input.  Best of luck in your PhD studies.

06/28/2012 - 5:16pm Thanks for all the great

Thanks for all the great input.

It's nice to hear about your changing policy interests, as I am not decided on sustainable development or fiscal policy.  They currently pique my interest but I know that could change.  I am fairly certain that I want to pursue research and writing, so I am looking into joining the student group that publishes a policy journal.

Being away from heavy quant work for many years has me a bit nervous, but I know I want to have those skills and am ready to dive into the material.

What was your weekly workload?  I want to work part time while in school, but have heard from some that this is difficult with the rigor of the program.

06/28/2012 - 12:00pm Great, thanks.  This is what

Great, thanks.  This is what I have heard as well - if you do well and keep close contact with Ford's Career Services, you will most likely find placement at a solid position right out of school.

This was a sticking point for me as I have to leave my job (which I like) to go to Ford. 

06/22/2012 - 10:39pm I was surprised as well that

I was surprised as well that this didn't happen, as he destroyed many lives directly and many more indirectly.  But, he is a sociopath, so the immense pain he inflicted probably doesn't register with him as a human being.

That sounds like a pretty solid vacation, although I would substitute more drinking for weed.
