The bar exam :-(

This summer isn't so fun.

Love the posts here, but the basically Michigan specific nerfs have left a sour taste that really makes me want to avoid anything with the cfb sub.

Treble damages and attorney fees!

10/24/2016 - 5:11pm I've seen more fights and

I've seen more fights and people kicked out in a single MSU game (in one half) than I have in 50+ Michigan games... and that was in a blowout loss to Ohio State ('08), in a regular person section (endzone). It's not a pretty fan base.

 

Edit: And... everyone kicked out (at least 4) were MSU fans that were fighting other MSU fans that they did not know.

And in the last 15 years when was the last time we've had anything close to this on special teams against *any* of the teams we've faced?

Lets be real; outside of one play outside of the first quarter Colorado did aboslutely nothing on offense.

Fine - you want us to run against an entire team in the box... lets do that and throw the entire playbook out there for people to see!

We couldn't "sustain clock killing drives" because we kept scoring (or fumbled). I'll take that over a minute off the clock any day. (TD, FG, Fumble, Punt, TD)

12/22/2015 - 1:01pm I was driving on 96 in

I was driving on 96 in Detroit a couple of years ago, it was pretty late so there were two other cars in front of me. A minivan (I think Caravan) came flying past all of us going at least 110, as soon as it passed the car in the front it lost control and all 4 tires blew - it went careening from side to side of the highway 3 times without hitting anything and came to a dead stop in the center of the highway with no functional tires.

 

I didn't stay to see what happened, but it was pretty amazing and well deserved (at least drive at a speed your tires are rated at).

 

Then there's the time that a guy cut me off and was weaving through traffic and a cop saw him and flashed his lights. The idiot tried to get away by cutting through two lanes and almost causing a couple of accidents (cut in front of one car then slammed on his brakes); the cop made a move and followed him. It was at least a reckless driving for sure.

Last 10 Duke points were phantom calls. Terrible calls, they even added more time at the end for Duke to have one more chance.

*sigh* Once again I'm reminded why talking about with race to white people is almost always a losing battle.

In your eyes. The model minority myth really a slap in the face for Asian Americans though. (And this is not the forum/place to talk about that, so I'm just leaving it at that; you can read about it here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2015/10/20/asian-ame…)

As to your question about a civil claim for an eye poke, I think Hackbart v. Cincinnati Bengals, Inc., 601 F.2d 516 (10th Cir. 1979) would apply.

11/09/2015 - 12:31pm If he was trespassing on your

If he was trespassing on your property (no legal right to be there) then it's doubtful that most courts would find you liable for a dog bite (since it's not a vicious breed)... and the burden of proof would be on him as a plaintiff to prove that your dog bit him. I don't really see the basis for what your attorney told you; however, it may end up costing more to litigate (hence settlement, which is covered by your policy), but in this circumstance I doubt the cost would be that great since it doesn't seem that likely to make it out of the pleading stage.

You can also seek out sanctions from the other side if their lawyers were engaged in unethical/incompetent behavior.

11/09/2015 - 12:16pm That's probably what will

That's probably what will push Bush's case to the win category - prior injuries would show that there's an issue that St Louis should have reasonable addressed.

Problem with this is that Missouri doesn't seem to follow the open and obvious standard. Woo reasonable care.

Backup quarterback that looked fairly terrible most of the time he was in... so running the ball isn't outside the realm of possibility.

Yeah, it'll probably be the #1 and #2 defenses in the country going at it.

10/03/2015 - 3:38pm 28 points, I can't complain

28 points, I can't complain too much. They didn't look great but it also didn't look like they were opening the playbook at all.

Dang it - I got him down to a price that I was willing to pay (just checked my email), and someone bought it for the full price before I could get to it.

It does look  like he extended up and was aiming for the head on the hit on the video.

08/16/2015 - 12:50am Ikea - they're really cheap

Ikea - they're really cheap (a fraction of the cost of other places for solid oak) if you get the pre-cut ones. We're at the end of a full house renovation (so at this point costs are a huge factor) and are ordering some from Ikea (haven't gotten them yet, but the samples in store look/feel pretty good). There's also the added bonus of being able to use the scrap pieces as cutting boards.

08/13/2015 - 1:12am Their prices aren't that bad

Their prices aren't that bad though... (I've ordered way too many dumpsters the last couple of years while doing a full renovation on our house)

Fastest: Ford Focus ST... it's really fun being able to smoke muscle cars. (252 hp, 270 lb ft torque in a Focus) Great track car as well.

Slowest: 2008 Honda Fit - It was painful trying to get it up to speed.

Yup, I learned on an old Honda in about 20 minutes, next day I bought my first manual car.

Nope, they're either at or under right now.

06/26/2015 - 1:47pm It doesn't sound that bad

It doesn't sound that bad when you read the actual article:

 

"Pipkins said doctors initially told him he has some arthritis in the knee but that he should not be disqualified from competition. But as pressure continued from others within the program to sign the medical form, he was sent by Michigan back to his knee surgeon who then recommended he rest his body for six months.

"After consulting with our medical team, we do not think it is in Ondre's best interest as it relates to his health and welfare to play football, short or long term," Harbaugh said in a statement given to ESPN on Friday. "He remains on full scholarship and counts toward the 85 scholarship limit in pursuit of graduation from the University of Michigan.""...

 

"He also Harbaugh told him that he wanted "to make sure you graduate from Michigan" and that the coach did not plan to invite him to fall camp due in part to medical concerns. The lineman added that Harbaugh told him that he did not believe he would be drafted into the NFL for medical reasons."

06/19/2015 - 12:54pm Argh. Too pricey right now

Argh. Too pricey right now with us moving soon..

06/17/2015 - 8:39pm Another fact - Jim Harbaugh

Another fact - Jim Harbaugh has forgotten more about football than I'll ever know... and so I'm not going to worry/complain about the players he's recruiting.

05/20/2015 - 3:59pm We were able to get friends

We were able to get friends to help us and do a lot of the things (and bought things from alternative places instead of 'wedding' services)... we ended up with 160 people and for everything ended up paying less than $6,500 (all wedding costs; it helped a ton that my wife found a discounted dress at one of the crazy wedding dress shops in NYC when we visited ($450 for the dress (friend's mom that was a tailor did the alterations for cheap)... discounted from a couple thousand) and we had friends (professional photographers) that as a gift did our photograhy for free).

 

(Examples: My sister and one of her friends, both of whom are excellent cooks, baked our wedding cake so the cost was very very small. For hor d'oeuvres we bought a bunch of things from Costco and they were prepped by friends on site and prior to the wedding/reception.)

05/20/2015 - 3:57pm One more - open seating! Took

One more - open seating! Took out a ton of the stress of trying to figure things out, and the guests were smart enough to find tables with people they knew or made friends...

05/20/2015 - 3:38pm We didn't do things the way

We didn't do things the way that most people do. We found a hall that would let us bring our own food in, hired a catering company for a couple of dishes and for the plates, silverware, and service, and then ordered food from our favorite restaurants (trays). We had some friends pick them up from said restaurants before the reception and had some fantastic food at a fraction of the cost of having a caterer do it all (having actual good food was important to us).

 

We also decided not to do the normal head table (not only is it awkward, but you don't really end up eating anything, and you never get to really talk to the bridal party) so we did a round table, where we could seat the entire bridal party, and were able to eat and hang out with them for a bit (before doing all the obligatory stuff) - it made the reception far more enjoyable for all of us.
