  1. Curious what others are doing leading up to dynasty drafts.  ESPN seems to think the Cards are going to draft a WR because the “desperately need a WR2 across from Hopkins” (paraphrased).  Are we giving up on Kirk as a roster-clogger?  Obviously I will wait and see what the Cards actually do but if they grab WR early it sounds like it might be time to bail.

    I've heard this in more than one spot. I don't really get it though. Aren't all pass catching RBs overlapped somewhat by receivers? Or am I missing the point?

    Curtis Samuel was used as a WR and RB at Ohio State.  It was very odd (to me anyway) when Carolina drafted him and CMC.  It was like they picked the same guy twice.

    Trying to get into this. I enjoy it but am terrible so far. I’m guessing the advice to start with a putter is probably something I should listen to as keeping my form so that I can replicate my throws and make the disc do what I want is a huge problem so far.

    What weights are you guys generally throwing? I have about 6 discs but I think I may have gotten some bad advice on weights. I was basically told “get heavy weights”. So most of my discs right now are in the 173-177 range. It seemed logical at the time because my 158g Leopard was getting carried all over by the wind. But I think it was an overcompensation and I may be overthrowing now. 

    Played a pretty open course yesterday with really long baskets and a decent amount of wind. Ended up playing more side to side than lengthwise. Seemed like either I tried to compensate for the wind and my disc ended uo straight instead, or I tried to throw straight and my disc simply never turned over and sailed way left. Eventually called it quits when it became clear I was going to lose a disc playing the way i was playing, lol.

    Nobody is a natural at this sport.  And unfortunately most of the how-to is online.  Although you will find the community pretty passionate about helping others.  9 times out of 10 if you see someone who knows what they’re doing they will give you tips if you ask.  Meanwhile, I really enjoyed these videos when I was first learning.

  4. I’m definitely in wait and see mode.  But I would think if you’re an upstanding guy (meaning all you want is an actual massage) and you find a good massage therapist you keep them.  I would find it odd if Desean says “I go to all kinds of masssage therapists and I’ve never done anything shady”.  Why so many?

    I wouldnt say terrible but when the highlights of the movie are the flashbacks to the original, that's not good.

    I think it is worth watching once for fans of the first one. That's about as positive a spin on it I can give.

    I will admit it’s possible I slept through the better parts, but falling asleep in the first place is not a good sign.  (My wife tells me she envied me)

    This describes me. I too wonder if Rush changed.  Or more likely, as I got older, I realized that Rush’s deception and oversimplification of complex issues was resulting in bad policy that negatively impacted millions. It was probably there all along, but until my mid-late 20s, I wasn’t able to see through the grift. 

    I think he changed as his audience changed.  It may be hard to admit, but we’ve grown meaner.  All of us. We consume it.  To stay relevant he had to get meaner too.

    I'm not sure where the cutoff is, but there is competitive coed volleyball at younger ages. I'd guess around U13 or 14 they stop coed in club/travel leagues. As they get older, there's safety and competitive concerns. Net height is different for boys and girls.

    I recall that the cutoff for coed volleyball is U12 in the Ohio Valley Region.  I don’t know if that has changed or not, the number of boys clubs is growing.

    and again, with comments saying "get rid of" and "defeat" someone else because they don't agree .... and then call for unity and healing ?

    does anyone here see the massive problem with that ?

    Again, I was just using you as the example since Tim labeled you as such. I do not condone the “defeat” and “get rid of” mindset. I hope that’s clear.

    But see I don’t regard you as an extremist @GoBirds I rarely agree with your views but you’re in the spectrum of rational discourse.

    For now.  But once you get rid of StealthyCat then GoBirds becomes the new extremist, and you’ll set your sights on him.  I don’t trust it to stop.

    edit:  no offense Stealthy...just using you as an example

  10. My soul is heavy today, because...well....I give up.  I find myself more and more reluctant to connect with other people on anything other than a superficial level.  The risk is too great now.  Any thought that falls outside  the ever-narrowing window of tolerable dissent is grounds for swift and severe retribution in the form of my livelihood, my health, and the well-being of my family.  It’s not worth the risk anymore to share what my feelings are or why I feel them.  My neighbors are just going to know me as the guy who smiles and waves, the guy who helps move heavy things, fixes broken things, and the guy who pets their dog.  But they won’t know ME.  They won’t know my heart..not really.  I’ll be emotionally withdrawn. And that makes me sad.   I don’t know when I’ll be able to lower my shields. Smile and wave boys....smile and wave.

    I'm hung up on the pastor's notion that repentance is necessary for healing and reconcilliation.  Do you believe that?

    An analogy, if it helps....very rarely when my wife and I have a bad fight is it 100% on one of us.  Our best reconciliations occur when we both acknowledge and apologize for our specific parts in the fight.  Even if it’s one of us apologizing for that actual offense and the other saying “well I’m sorry I reacted so harshly”.  We are both repentant.

    I don't know about "worship"......but I think there's more than a few of his fans who feel is infallible; his deeming it truth makes it truth.

    I noticed this too during the Obama administration, and I just don’t get it.  I don’t like him so he can’t do anything right.  I love him so he’s never wrong.   Mind boggling.

    The last 12 years have really been troubling to me. I don’t think we want a president, I think we want a king.
