  1. Crap. I thought I maxed out the example. Not even close.
  2. The child support thing is relevant in that it informs us as to why he may have ran. That's it. And that has nothing to do with the culpability of the police officer for murdering him. I've never understood the running thing. Do they somehow think this is going to make their situation better? Even if he didn't get shot. Did he think he was going to get away. He was 50 years old and slow as hell.Agreed. In no way was this shooting justified, but the running part gets me. Sure, you don't think you're going to get shot in the back, but don't run.I think his family would much rather be bailing him out of jail. The common theme in all these incidents is that the perpetrator has committed a crime and has resisted arrest. Rodney King, Mike Brown, Eric Garner, Walter Scott, the kids in that video today that sparked so much debate... Law abiding people have no reason to fear the police. The cops need to do a better job, but the fact is all these tragedies could have been avoided if the people didn't resist.LMAO ya the general is .....nuts Resisting arrest is different, but speaking to the running part, what should an officer do (and what are they exactly trained to do?... I don't know) when a suspect runs? Much of the sentiment seems to be to not shoot the suspect. And I'd probably agree in the vast majority of cases as there's a chance for back-up assistance, or, like in this case, no reason for a non-violent warrant to be met with shots fired. But then, does that mean any criminal can avoid arrest as long as they are faster than the cop? What if it's a 1on1 situation with a known mass-murderer, who's escaped from prison? The murderer is unarmed, and not an immediate threat to the officer, but it running away from the slower officer? What if the officer has full knowledge of this guy's past and takes him out? Justified to prevent more deaths? What if he doesn't shoot and this guy takes out 10 more people prior to being captured the next time? I know it's an extreme example and polar opposite of someone with a warrant for child-support issues. Point being, when can/should officers be able to shoot fleeing suspects? It's somewhere between those two examples, but where?
  3. My father passed recently and it's pretty much the opposite of this thread. Anything of value (monetaty) has pretty much been going "you want this? I don't. ) and sentimental stuff is "I would like this" " no problem". What the heck goes through people's minds to battle over a dead relative's things? I don't care if my siblings and I didn't get along. Why get all stressed about a few thousand dollars.?
  4. I think I'd rather see a one-on-one game between Strike and Tim than Wisconsin-Duke on Monday night. Only problem is both players would probably foul out. I am from Cali. I'll bet that I could beat Tim one on one if the bet was the loser leaves this board forever. Of course, I've offered him ban bets before and EVERY time he's declined. Because he NEEDS this board. I could easily leave and never worry about it again. Tim needs an anonymous place to vent his idiocy because I can guarantee you he never expresses his idiocy to people who know who he is. So Tim, if you want, the next time I come to Cali we can arrange a one on one game and settle this. Let me know. Go away little man. It's, actually, "Shut up little man."
  5. So if Wisconsin wins on Monday you think people will remember this game OVER that game? What a f'ing idiot you are. Go back to your thread where you said you'd stay. Quit polluting other threads you dolt. 1. Yes. 2, GFY 3. GFY. So why did you say you'd stay in your own thread but keep moving out of it? You know you f up every thread you enter EXCEPT yours, but you keep doing it? Why? Cause you're a doosh. No one else has EVER been relegated to one thread, but you did it voluntarily because you recognized you're a doosh. You're like Cliff Clavin in Cheers when he hired a guy to shock him when he was being a d*ck. You know it but you can't help yourself. #######. I decided to stay in my own thread mostly because I was hoping you wouldn't follow me. That didn't work. I should let you know that I have received numerous PMs from all sorts of people telling me how much they detest you. You are widely regarded as the most despicable person on this board, and you haven't done anything to help yourself here. I'd be astonished if you had any friends here at all. I will continue to post in sports threads and whereever else the hell I like. If I were you I'd stronglyu consider changing my name and personality and trying to start over. But I'm not sure you're capable of it. Congrats on winning money tonight. Be sure to buy yourself a drink, and if you can afford it, a prostitute. She (or he) can pretend that you're likeable. Your posts seem fine to me. Strike seems like a real jerk. strikes2k spends his waking life stalking Tim. HTH. He isn't the only one. No, he isn't. And it's one of the strangest phenomenons at FBG. Same person?
  6. I switched on the UK broadcast a minute before this and was greeted with some whiny hick saying the most ridiculous things I've heard in a long time, including that it was a bad foul. The play-by-play guy kept trying to keep him in check, but to no avail. Then they cut to the booth... Rex Chapman.
  7. Great idea in the perfect scenario. Too bad that is not the case for the overwhelming majority.I've been saying it is a failure for over a decade. I posted here 5 years ago the same thing. Companies sold workers a bunch of BS. It only works for those making enough to save AND have a near perfect career. Defenders of the plan like to show data for those making over 100k a year because if they included people making 1/2 that, the disaster would be obvious. There is no one who can take the max of $18k if they are making less than $75000. $50000 - yeah, right. The BS of start when you are 20 or 25. Sure. I got fed that one. The number on paper was that I would have 2.5 million......if I was lucky to make x amount, with raises, over 35-40 years. Yeah, right again. IBM even came out with a new way to screw employees in 2012. They now only pay you the company match if you are employed on Dec. 15. Why? So they don't have to match. Yeah, they set it up where the only way you get the match is if you retire before that date. Leave - you get no match for the year, laid off, ditto. the bolded is just false. It's tough no argument, but not impossible. Many have done it and do it. I don't understand your second paragraph. IBM - yeah, that's ####ty. ok a hermit can.No. A person who doesn't need every new gadget and to go out on the town often can do it. We've done it. We make more now and spend more now but when we only had a couple young ones at home it wasn't hard to save.Agreed. Out of school making about fifty. Maxed out fairly easily and got a house along the way. Non hermit but i alsoI didn't have expensive hobbies like jetskis or kids or maxing out my credit cards.
  8. He ran on the field with his helmet off after a Dallas defensive penalty. NFL chose to ignore it though.
  9. now I'm curious- what made you angry about this? there have been a couple movies that I've walked out of feeling angry- and kept thinking about, realizing later that my anger was from things I believed in being challenged far beyond what was comfortable or acceptable to me. Lars von Trier is a master at this- and I'm pretty much done with him... but still can respect his craft. not saying this is the case with you and boyhood- but aside from disappointment in elevated expectations not being met, I don't see this movie bringing out that extreme an emotion. and even if so- how it warrants being called the worst movie you've ever seen. and I'm not even that big a fan of this movie- even though I liked it. Ultimately, that's better IMO than most of the POS movies out there that are just useless wastes of my 90 minutes and the hundreds/thousands of people involved in making them- not to mention the millions of dollars spent that could've gone to something-anything else. Sorry but I won't have a much deeper answer for you than - It made me angry that I wasted $5 and 3 hours on this movie. I went in kind of blind other than hearing about positive reviews and years to make. It wouldn't be as bad if there were poor reviews and half as long. At least then I'd know what I was getting into. I assumed for all the praise there would be a payoff at some point. Nope. I guess I felt suckered.
  10. Obviously there are more poorly made/less quality movies out there (I.e. the Leprechaun series), but those at least are so poor you I'd consider watching for the novelty factor. Boyhood was the first movie since Cruel Intentions that angered me so much I can guarantee I'll never even consider watching again. I could film a dog crapping once a year for 12 years. It would be unique and take dedication, but it does not make a good movie. ...still probably better than Boyhood, though. See you in 12 years, Academy!
  11. Boyhood. Nice plot - boring kid grows up to be an annoying butthole. I was hoping the drunk stepdad was finally going to make things interesting, but it was not to be. Apparently, they needed to move on to ####### shooting more photos.
  12. So, I tried the Smails recipe late Thursday, and served it yesterday/today. VERY good chili. It was a bit more like chunky coney sauce than I expected - A positive in my book, just surprised. It was definitely soupy on Thursday, but thickened up nicely overnight in my garage. My only edits were slight: Stock instead of broth (what I had on hand) Crown instead of Jack (what I had on hand) And I did add the chocolate + beans to half the batch with a 1/2 hour left. I will say, as good as this was, it's definitely going to be a rare event if only for the cost. It ran me $60+, though it probably only would have been ~$50 if my spices were up-to-date. Still, that's a nice pile of ribeyes I could have spent the money on. Also, I must be a slow chopper because it took me forever to cut up the 5 lbs of beef into small cubes. Overall . Thanks, Mr. Smails.
  13. My two cents in red...Just don't monkey around on the beer. I loath Fat Tire as a drinking beer, but it's the best beer to use for this recipe. Thanks for the info. I did grab some Fat Tire. Here goes nothin...
  14. First attempt tonight... at any chili. Just found the NM peppers. A couple questions... Onion type? I assume white? What oz can of tomato paste? Sweetened bakers chocolate or unsweetened? Will Crown work or does it have to be Jack? Thanks.
  15. Of course he'll play. If they had any other decent WRs, they'd actually put him through the proper protocol. The Panthers need him so they took him to this independent specialist for clearance:
  16. Somebody should let dentist know there's a crockpot chicken AND dumpling recipe in that link.In the red pic, she kind of has a Lebron thing going on in the face.
  17. You won't be so happy when you manage to draft him and Cassel/other overthrows him in the regular season, too.
  18. I don't know how I stumbled into this thread, but I gotta say I'm intrigued. As I'm a newbie to CISs, hat's a good starter one? And by starter I mean something decent to give me the experience, but not so expensive I'll be out a ton of $$ when I screw it up? How about this?
  19. Agreed. The Lebron put-your-head-down-and-bullrush is just painful to watch. I normally watch college to avoid this.
  20. He's not awful. The problem is, he's just good enough to keep around. It's not like the Lions have a JAC/MIN/NYJ/OAK/CLE... level of QB play where making a QB change is a top priority. It's kind of like flipping a coin with this guy, he can win you any game or lose you any game. It's next to impossible to win a championship, though, if you are counting on that coin landing on heads 10-12 time out of 16, then 3 more in the playoffs.
  21. What am I missing here - he's medically cleared to play, but refuses to play. Isn't that some sort of breach of contract? I know it's a gray area as it's only a few weeks difference right now, but, hypothetically, what if he's "uncomfortable" at week 10? Week 14? Playoffs? Next September?
