  1. If you cut, put masking tape over the cut line. It will decrease the chance of splintering.
  2. ~$1 million settlement with the rape victim, but there was no wrongdoing.
  3. Slow cooking this at home as we speak. Just threw this in the cooker prior to bed. First crack at it. Curious if there's value in searing the roast prior. I didn't do so, but I've seen other recipes call for it. Thoughts?
  4. Rusty water doesn't necessarily mean something is wrong with the larger water supply. My city has great water, but my old house, due to old galvanized pipes, would pump out brown water if I was out of town for a couple weeks and it stood stagnant in the pipes. Similarly, if an external water main broke, you'd get the foggy water shown in the other clips. I think the news just loves showing that clip for a "Look how bad the water is!" response. The damaging lead really wouldn't be visible... which is too bad, actually.
  5. Enis saw the talent level at RB had increased since he committed and his playing time would be limited at best. Good move to de-commit. Curtis P.'s kid?
  6. I have to believe that somewhere in the chain of decisionmaking an eco-lefty nixed the plan to put phosphates in the water, valuing the environment higher than human safety. Someone should go to prison for that decision, unfortunately they probably won't. That's the stupidest comment i have ever heard on these boards. Hi Spreagle - I am what you likely would consider an eco lefty. I am a processional engineer who has spent a 30 year career regulating drinking water and wastewater. I could be making twice what I'm making right now working in the private sector, but as someone who believes that we need to leave a better planet for our children, have spent my professional life protecting the waters of the state in which I live. I take this very seriously. The second thought that I, and several of the other eco lefty (and eco righty - yes, believe it or not, there are a number of Republicans and fiscal conservatives who aren't stupid enough to toe the anti environmental regulation tea party line) professional engineers that I work with, had when we heard of this hideousness was "why the hell did they not add orthophosphates to the water to bring the pH up and control the corrosivity?" Our third thought? " The Legionella is from the water supply. They are not adequately disinfecting the water before it hits the system." Oh, and our first thought? This absolutely sucks for the people of Flint, and it could have absolutely been prevented had they just simply practiced - more specifically, been allowed to practice - best professional judgment. In my state, falsification of test results for water or wastewater is subject to a fine of up to $37,500 per day per violation. Trumping up false water analyses, selectively sampling to get the results that you want? Both subject to those fines. People get fired, and careers get ruined, for doing what you suggested that this random eco-lefty did. I take water, and my job, damn seriously. For you or anyone to suggest that an environmentalist would knowingly reduce the amount of phosphate in a water supply system to make an environmental statement, when any environmentalist who knows anything about water supply knows that low pH will leach metals such as lead and copper out of pipes is both idiotic and wrongheaded. The blame for this idiocy lie squarely at the feet of the government officials who decided that saving a couple of dollars was worth more then the health of the citizens that they were elected to (or in the case of the city emergency manager, appointed to) represent. It was a short sighted, stupid, politically driven decision. And heads should roll. So in summary, it is my best professional judgment based upon 30 years in water regulation thaI you, sir, are full of ####. Have a nice day. bakes - a couple questions (normally I'd ask true water experts like Cher or Maddow, but I don't think they peruse these boards, so you'll have to do): Are orthophosphates required for all treated water? For instance, does Detroit necessarily use them (and Flint just needs more)? Or is it an additive only used when the pH is out of range? How does the lead leaching occur time-wise? That is, is the process reversible? For instance, if they added the orthophosphates 2 weeks after the switch to Flint (or even 1 year... has it even happened, yet), would that be too late, and would the damage be done? Would the lead-leach reaction, for lack of a better term, be a runaway reaction and keep contaminating the water supply after the fix was applied? I'm guessing it would have to be something along these lines, otherwise there would be a quick solution such as treat the Flint supply better, or switch back to Detroit, correct? Thanks.
  7. I hate to spread more "drivel" but everything I'm reading and watching is telling me that this is total crap. The water was poisoned after the emergency managers made a hostile takeover of the city of Flint. This is not on the local people. This is not on the federal government. It's completely on the governor and the state government. And Snyder, by attempting to spread the blame around tonight, is clearly NOT a buck stop here guy. If he was he would have resigned already. I know this doesn't jive with Maddow, but trust me, Snyder didn't want to take over a (apparently thriving) city just so he could get off on poisoning kids. If Snyder resigned, today, who would you suggest as a replacement?
  8. Cruise, Carrey, and Smith all blow. None of them deserve Oscars.
  9. I'm fairly certain they weren't applauding water contaminants. There were other topics within the speech. Many of which were non-Snyder and non-Flint related.
  10. Lol. Uhhhhh I have some bad news for you.,Oh well. I never expected they'd make a decent Suicide Squad movie. Expectations met. I'll go watch 3 or 4 old JLU episodes, instead. You think it's going to be a bad movie because of one actor who probably won't be in it a lot?2 - Affleck and W. Smith.

  12. Loved the old Ostrander series. So this seemed like a decent idea. However, Will Smith sucks, and Waller should be fat. Doesn't seem Batman-centric, but if it is, hopefully it's not Affleck. Batman-Superman trailer is cringeworthy when he asks Superman if he bleeds.
  13. I ate there twice a couple years back. Got sick both times. I thought it was just my stomach. In light of recent events, and that I never got sick at other restaurants, I'm pretty sure they were serving me a pile o germs. Qboda #1!
  14. I very much dislike this analogy for one very big reason. In order to properly keep kids safe with guns they need to be locked up tight. This is one area I agree with pit owners. Constantly putting your pit bull on lockdown is a recipe for disaster. It becomes a catch 22 though. Constantly having them interact with kids is a recipe for disaster. You simply just can't be responsible enough. i totally disagree with this again it comes down to how you raise or train your dog im not saying pit bulls arent dangerous ,that would be stupid but guns are just as dangerous if not more dangerous, in the wrong hands Seems like you are hedging here. Are you saying that pit bulls that have good owners are perfectly safe around kids or not? based entirely on my own personal experience ....absolutely ... said every owner of a pitbull, that killed someone, the day before the attack. so weak....find new material First time I posted that, if memory serves. Also, not really "material". Here's a news story from 5 days ago. http://abc13.com/news/woman-may-face-charges-in-brothers-death-after-pit-bull-attack/1148009/ A lawyer for Griffin-Heady says she had the dogs since they were puppies, and that they had always appeared tame and friendly around the boy. "She's raised them...and she's never known them to do anything violent," the lawyer says. They are all wonderful & well behaved dogs... until they're not.
  15. Put 6 inch padding (or some kind of add-resistance-as-it-gets-compressed-material) on the outside of the helmets. It would look ridiculous, but it would greatly reduce the violent brain-to-skull trauma that occurs. When the NFL legal rep that reads this runs it up the chain of command so it gets implemented and saves them 100's of millions of dollars, I'll take a 1% finders/consultant fee. Thanks.

  17. Plenty of links here: https://www.reddit.com/r/worldnews/comments/3zxxhi/reports_of_sexual_assaults_on_women_across/ First time I ever went to reddit. What an unappealing website. Why so popular? You can easily remove all the crap (no avatars, sigs) and make it a plain interface. Very easy to find forums related to your niche interests. Upvote/downvote functionality allows you to avoid terrible posters/troll posts. Imagine clicking on a topic and having Tim's bull#### automatically sorted to the bottom of the page... In!
  18. Yes they are certain acts which are committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population or an identifiable part of a population. The first prosecution for crimes against humanity took place at the Nuremberg Trials. OK, whatever. Continue on! Glad children suffering from lead poisoning at the direction of the Governor is amusing to you. You jump to way too many conclusions and make too many accusations. What you say and what the facts show are two different things. It was a mistake and seems to have had some terrible consequences, but it was not intentional. If the governor had any idea how bad it really was, he would have done things differently. You make it sound like he ordered the poisoning. It was a sequence of unforseen events. He probably should have responded better and that's what he is guilty of. Hindsight though is easy. While I won't go as far as DirtyJay, the Governor and the environmental agency knew. There are some very incriminating emails that have been exposed. Like her or not, Maddow's been on this story for a while.Maddow's on the case! Just what the folks in Flint need - smarm.
  19. I am Syrian. You have to treat me kindly. Mrs Merkel invited me.
  20. My pet goldfish loves to play with bright colored balls. I always enjoyed playing with cuddly teddy bears. I taught my lizard how to roll over. Perfect! Part 2 banned from youtube.
  21. I've gone on a few interviews where I was knew I was not going to take, or be offered, the job. A few were to get the feel for the interviews, but the majority were to just check out other companies/cities (moreso the latter) on their dime. Maybe these Rooney rule guys want the interview experience or to just visit some relatives in FL?
