  1. it's nice to see that guitar-driven rock & roll was only mostly dead.
  2. how do you not call your band Frankenmuth? (where they're from)
  3. slatestarcodex - as usual - has a good read on this subject
  4. anytime i hear the PED argument about late-career power peaks, i ask if they know when Hank Aaron's career high in HR was.
  5. Highest OPS in the Season A Player Reached 3000 Hits: Ty Cobb - 166 (age 34!) Tris Speaker - 166 Hank Aaron - 149 Stan Musial - 145 Willie Mays - 140 Roberto Clemente - 138 Adrian Beltre is currently at 138
  6. been looking deeply into this technology for work (auto insurance). it's going to happen way faster than most think. in fact, it's already here in pockets. there is so much money pouring into this from all the giants (google, apple, ibm, federal government), as well as some very interesting startups. early adopters: compact cities like NY/SF/Boston, elderly, disabled, teens, defined-route shuttles (like in national parks and stadium parking lots), uber-pools for commuters, long-haul trucking links: Google's Waymo already giving rides in Phoenix Trucking in Europe Shuttle van at Univ. of Michigan
  7. best scenes of the season (at least until the end of this past episode - wow!)
  8. Gallo's plate appearances are must-watch tv
  9. thanks TLEF. yeah, i had misunderstood what you meant.
  10. yes, that is correct, although now that sounds like a guy i made up. i'm sure i had a good reason at the time to draft him.
  11. i disagree with TLEF about recruiting rankings. I don't think there's much difference between the average guy in the 20s and the average guy in the 50s. eta to clarify that this is just my opinion
  12. is no one going to mention that this is already allowed by law, and ALWAYS has been allowed by law? The Obama admin proposed some new regs that would ban it, but they never took effect. this isn't something new. Vox explainer
  13. Rangers OVER Reds UNDER Yankees OVER
  14. you keep throwing out this false choice. there's a massive space between these 2 extremes. The Americans has, for the most part, hit the right balance, nicely on the slow end of the spectrum. But they've had 2 episodes - S5E1's hole-digging & one last season (i think) with a car stakeout - that crossed over the line from cool-slow to boring-slow. ymmv
