Believe it or not, as destructive as chemical and biological weapons can be, they are also quite fragile.  A major limitation of use is how to make the delivery effective and not actually destroy the agent in the payload.  (BTW, do not confuse the language I am using - efficacy, etc. - as being cold hearted, this is just the language that is used in describing the employment of C&B weapons).  They can be delivered via shells, bombs, etc. but take a specific design to ensure the actual agents are not blown up upon delivery or dispersed such that they have little impact to humans due to a lower than necessary concentration.  The most effective use during WWI was often just spraying the weapons across no man's land and not through artilery shells (aviation was not developed enough to them in bombs) because they were not very effective in artillery barrages.  Anyway, the background was to highlight that the desctruction of the plants/sites will subject the agents and their precursors to high temp/pressure that would destroy many of them.  And if any did leak out, they would quickly dispurse or become inactive before they could do much harm to those near these facilities.

There is only one band. Repeated shots of the Domer band and nothing of M. And as I write this you hear our band playing and they show that stupid leprechaun. Producer is obviously a Domer fan.

04/05/2018 - 10:09pm Announcers

Good lord, I know Melrose only does college hockey 2 weeks out of the year (and is mostly terrible) but it has really sounded like he and Bucci are Domer announcers trying to calm the fans after our goal. Makes listening to the play by play even more painful.

03/29/2018 - 4:27pm From a personal perspective, this blows

My inlaws are all Tech alumni (ironically my wife is UVa) so I was looking forward to going to Blackburg to see us play and introduce them to the Big House.  Bummed that excuse is now gone!

11/13/2017 - 8:11am Wisconsin 2008?

Granted it was a Bert team but that was quite the upset!

09/15/2017 - 12:13pm Or like they do in Florida....

And shoot at a hurricane!

01/01/2017 - 8:32pm Hope he scores again in a few weeks!

My brothers and I are going to London to catch Crystal Palace and Arsenal home games! So pumped!

11/09/2016 - 9:21am Totally agree with your point

But the infuence of how consistently good they have been and the fact they are in the SEC will completely overshadow any other undefeated team.  Not saying you are wrong, to the contrary I think past seasons should have zero impact on ranking, but that is just not the world that we live in!!

Too bad the DL couldn't also break O'Connor's imagination...

Yeah, defensive snuff porn....

09/12/2016 - 4:18pm Not awful actually

I streamed a whole hockey game  once (dropped out for the 2 intermissions) and it turned out to be about 2.1 GB.  If you aren't always super close to your data limit it can work every once in a while.

...and have played organizted football longer than University of South Carolina or Clemson.  Or a least that is what the Aflac duck told me during the game...

08/07/2016 - 3:22pm Unconfirmed that she is ok

Dan Patrick just announced that there are unconfirmed reports from the Dutch team that she is okay. They really didn't need to replay that crash tho....

08/07/2016 - 3:03pm Dutch rider

Did you see the leader crash on the descent? Didn't look like she was moving so hope she was just stunned. Went over her bars. Still no update from play by play.

07/23/2016 - 10:33am Family

I guess Domers don't like their families....

11/11/2015 - 1:51pm Jeddah to Rome in the middle of the night

My family and I lived in Saudi Arabia and I was about 16 catching a flight from Jeddah to Rome.  We finally board at 4 am and as I am getting on the plane and groggy, a guy walks up and says in a rather quiet tone: "The last thing I expected on a flight from Nairobi to Rome with a stop in Jeddah is a kid to get on the plane with a Michigan hat.  Go Bucks."

 

I will always remember that story and just love how it proves that no matter where you go in the world, the liklihood of hearing someone say "Go Blue" or acknowledging the greatest rivaly in college sports is pretty high. 

11/07/2015 - 10:46pm Someone needs to gif Mork at

Someone needs to gif Mork at the end of the game holding his finger asking for 1 second. Sorry, no Spartan Bob to save ya....

10/07/2015 - 11:24am Shoelace

But if we get Pryor we may never have gotten Denard amd all the positive he brought with him. I am much happier with Denard and crap RR years (and I experienced his 3-9 year in the flesh as many others did) than TP and maybe just a bit better record; however we would have missed out on all the upside that came with Shoelace.

10/02/2015 - 7:46am Mgoblue app

I just streamed the play by play last weekend thru the official Michigan sports app. Super easy and no fee.

09/27/2015 - 1:01pm Live in NoVa and for once

Live in NoVa and for once living near Maryland is useful. Will be there with a couple classmates and brother! Hoping to enjoy some Turtle tears Saturday night!

If your group likes Indian food, head to Brick Lane. It is about a 5 minute walk from the Liverpool station and has a wealth of places to choose from. Very reasonable food and very good. They have guys standing in front of their places to try to bring you in so you could probably bargain them against each other to get an even better deal.

I DVR'd the game and rewatched just a couple points (I had to miss the end - and yes, apparently I am a masochist for not just deleting that thing) and counted players from the presnap endzone view which showed 11.

Would love to but not in the cards.  It just happens that we will be in town and could go Saturday.  The wife may not approve of two nights of hockey taking up prime restaurant going time....

10/22/2014 - 4:14pm Excellent!  Safe travels and

Excellent!  Safe travels and that would be great if you woudl share any info on where the Alumni Assoc. plans to sit. 

10/22/2014 - 4:13pm Thanks for the background!

Thanks for the background!  That was good to read and I'll have to watch the video a bit later (stupid work).

Well they don't overlap so I figure have my cake and eat it too...hopefully the cake doesn't end up being old, stale and full of mold.....

True, but Molk is not the only reason.  The OL has only two starters remaining and the RT has struggled today and last week against the Colts.  

09/03/2014 - 1:19pm HD antenna

Go to Best Buy/Radio Shack and pick up an HD antenna for $30. The picture quality is great and easy to install so you can still watch at home.

Looks like since your post we've gotten 50% of the donations needed to get to the goal!

Wow, very outspoken calling out Borges. Called out Mattison too but I don't think he deserves near the criticism of Borges.

11/14/2013 - 1:42pm Already seeing some

Is it bad that I hope Florida fans make bigger asses of themselves? Seriously, why do grown people need reminders to be civil and not insult people when they make decisions that are personal and affect only them? What is wrong with people...

09/22/2013 - 2:03pm Too

Don't forget his "I don't want too" in another post. I was going to criticize him for the same spelling errors so I am glad I kept reading before posting anything.

09/19/2013 - 9:54am Just for future reference it

Just for future reference it appears the Alumni Association is changing venues to RFD near the Verizon Center.  I got an email last week about that.  I'm sure people will still be at BB but looks like they are trying to phase over to the new place.  No idea why but the new place is pretty cool and a much better beer selection and they still have a ton of TVs. 

09/19/2013 - 9:24am You may not be able to get it

You may not be able to get it on WatchESPN since the game will be on ABC out here.  I have to watch a random Saturday night game before after getting home on a Saturday night and the WatchESPN has not streamed the ABC game.  Just be prepared for that.  You may have to use the Gamecast which is pretty decent.
