    Misogyny - Thoughts on it and has is become widespread?

    I have actually learned something from all of this:  when men and women work the same jobs, their salaries are actually a lot closer than I thought:  women only earn about 5% less than men.  Now, that does not address the lack of opportunity that they face in fields like engineering.  You say...

    Misogyny - Thoughts on it and has is become widespread?

    "Because men work in fields that pay more." Impossible to argue with logic like that!

    Misogyny - Thoughts on it and has is become widespread?

    That right there is the problem.  Study after study for decades have shown that there is a gender pay gap.  (*No, I am not going to supply you with links, a simple Google search will bring up many.  I just did it.) The reason that I say that this is the problem is the disconnect.  It is the...

    Ranking Led Zeppelin Songs - Request To Participate

    LoL. Not likely.  After it being the last song at every High School dance* and all of the overplay on the radio, I just burned out with Stairway to Heaven many, many years ago.  Oh, on it's own merits, it is a great song, and I would never change the radio station when it comes on, but I have...

    Sorry.  Trying to rush in my list before the deadline.  Didn't read the rules.  Invited late to the game.  Feel free to disregard my list!

    Ranking Led Zeppelin Songs - Request To Participate

    Here you go.  Some of the rankings are pretty random.  Take them all as plus or minus 5.  And there are probably lots left off... 1.       Communication Breakdown 2.       Over the Hills and Far Away 3.       Black Dog 4.       Whole Lotta Love (the 20 seconds starting at 3:03 may be the...

    Ranking Led Zeppelin Songs - Request To Participate

    Ah.  Pop meaning post Peter Green then. The "White Album" (aka Fleetwood Mac 1975) and Rumours would definitely be my wife's favorites.  So, pop.  Back in the day I guess she would have been a Top-40 fan and now she is "just" retro, lol.  Whereas I would have been quickly changing the station...

    Democrats need to wake the hell up

    Yes.  The Democratic party needs to skew to the moderate side.  The problem is that the definition of moderate has changed so much in the last 25 years.  I consider myself to be a moderate Democrat.  Hell, I considered voting for Dole until I decided that he was just too conservative for me. ...

    Ranking Led Zeppelin Songs - Request To Participate

    There is a "Pop" version of Communication Breakdown?  Please post a link! I am talking about the version on their first album.  If that's pop music then I will have to rethink a great deal of my musical prejudices!

    When your season ends due to other owners not paying attention

    Yeah.  Ten team league.  Many years ago I tried to get the league to go for playoff spots decided completely by points on the year.  We had some folks threatening to quit, so I proposed that we go with record for the top two seeds, points for the third and fourth.  It has worked really well...

    Oh.  I'm in!  😀 It'll take me a bit, but I'll get it in by New Years (holidays, moving my dad into assisted living, starting a new job on January 4th ... and in my league's playoffs, btw :p) But here's a teaser:  Communication Breakdown will be in my top five, probably my favorite. PS - My...

    Is it OK to tank in FF?

    League Rules?  If I turn in a full lineup, with players that were not on the injury list a week ago, please prove my intent to tank. I simply don't see a way that league rules are going to prevent this.  I would say, "Well, he played last week, how was I to know?" "You should have paid more...

    U2 - Community rankings - Top 10 time - #9 With or Without You, #8 All I Want is You, #7 I Will Follow -Spotify links, thanks Krista4

    I will come back to this thread and read it start to finish -to do it justice- when I have the time.  I'm not the greatest concert goer, but I have been to 6 U2 concerts, including back-to-back nights.  Which were totally different, but awesome experiences.  The first night Bono came within 15...

    When your season ends due to other owners not paying attention

    Dealing with a bit of this in my league and have been for years.  I think 15 years ago we introduced a system where the 1st, 2nd and 3rd highest scores for the week win $20, $10 and $5 and the 3 lowest scores for the week lose the equivalent.  Yeah, not high stakes, but still the idea was to...
