  1. If you need to clip your fingernails - go outside or do it in the bathroom. No one wants to wade through nail clippings in the cubicle farm.
  2. Isn't his QBR below replacement value? Who wants to sign a clipboard holder with the attendant baggage? The only two places I could see would be SF (who didn't want him) and Seattle (who doesn't need him). He made a choice which is admirable to stand (or sit) for his convictions, and if he is being blackballed at least he can be satisfied in knowing that he did what he thought was right regardless of the consequences. I don't think he will be destitute any time in the near future if he had a good financial plan in place.
  3. Man I hope this open the door for Geraldo Rivera to air Al Capone's Vault Part 2.
  4. Reagan, FDR, Truman, Eisenhower
  5. That was the best episode of this season. A bit of a swerve, but in the end it served it's purpose. It would be easy to hate Richard, but in the end maybe what he did will be for the greater good.
  6. I think it comes down to runs allowed amongst common opponents in the three way tie by the three teams tied at 1-2. If that is the case it comes down to Colombia vs. one of USA/Canada in a play in game. Colombia gave up 1 and 3 - so their runs against is 4. Canada gave up 4 and USA gave up 2. So Canada needs to beat USA by 3 runs. I think if they only win by 2 then US will advance to play Colombia due to the batting average rules.
  7. In Nebraska we were in the 70s last Monday, in the 20s with light flurries this weekend (though nothing stuck), potential for freezing rain tomorrow - climbing back in to the 60s by Friday. Let the roller coaster begin!
  8. Full Metal Jacket Princess Bride Breakfast Club Planes, Trains and Automobiles This list could have gone 100 deep - forgot how many great movies were released in that time frame.
  9. While I agree with this statement, it is not practical for the majority of college students out there to enjoy the leisure of this approach. Instead they get bogged down with unmanageable debt in pursuit of the greater good of learning with no escape hatch on the other side of this noble pursuit. Everyone wants to go to college because of cultural expectations that you have to go to college to be successful. It is practical for those that know what they want to do and can use college to prepare them for that path - but I know plenty of people with Philosophy, General Studies and Business degrees (to name a few) that are working in jobs that in all truth really shouldn't require a degree but do because of cultural expectations.
  10. Great call on filing fees. If voter ids are discriminatory then how in hell's half acre are filing fees not discriminatory? Another thing that ticks me off is the whole write-in qualification process. At least here in Nebraska, you cannot be elected via write-in unless you have filed paperwork (and a filing fee) to qualify for candidacy. The benefit is that if you file to qualify for write-in then your name is not on the ballot but if you get more votes then other qualified write-ins (and, if any, names appearing on the ballot) then you can win a seat. This happened last election where no one filed for spot, so two candidates filed to qualify as write-ins for that spot. One got 34 votes, the other 9 so the person with 39 votes won the seat. The funny part of that is that for the 4 year seat, there were 3 openings and 4 candidates. Candidate 3 got 3,900 votes edging out Candidate 4 with 3,880 votes. Had candidate 4 merely run for the 2 year seat they would have been elected over the write-in candidate who only garnered 39 votes.
  11. Yes. I suggest a ban on all people of Russian or even Eastern European ancestry or citizenship from entering the US until we can figure out their intentions.
  12. 912 pages in and it dawned on me to ask this question in the midst of all this slap fighting: How many of the Trump defenders in here defend him because they really like him as president? How many of the Trump defenders in here like him because he is a Republican and they will support any R over a D? How many Trump critics do so because he is an R and they are a D? How many Trump critics in here do so in spite of being an R - they just dislike the man? I ask these things because the issue seems bigger than the typical D v R thing, I think dislike is crossing party affiliation.
  13. From his speech - Free nations are the best vehicle for expressing the will of the people –- and America respects the right of all nations to chart their own path. My job is not to represent the world. My job is to represent the United States of America. But we know that America is better off, when there is less conflict -- not more. The presidential oath of office - "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States." You think his job is to represent the world? Did "the world" elect him? His job is to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. There is no global constitution that he was elected to defend and if he did so we would most definitely be labeled as imperialists. Whether he is or will be preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States of America is up for debate; but ultimately he is beholden to the citizens of the United States and any good that is derived by other countries from that charge is great but not his first order of business.
  14. Just to follow up - looked it up 10 Sophomores won gold, 2 freshmen - considering there are 14 weight classes (I think) and 4 classes, that means 12 of 56 were won by underclassmen. A few years ago we had a girl make it all the way to the finals at 106 in the largest class. Pretty freaking impressive.
