  1. A ball mock-up already? Wow.
  2. What on Earth makes you think manufacturing jobs are coming back to the United States under any condition? I'm already there with 3/4ths of my sixth grader's homework, but in multiple subjects. For example, she's currently studying the economic ramifications of Byzantine Empire engineering. I think by contrast, in the sixth grade I think I'd learned who Julius Caesar was.
  3. We're all just a bunch of leftist commie pinkos looking for the state to be our nanny and wanting constant handouts. Or something. So you're not uber-fascist... just plain ol' regular fascist. Good to know.
  4. Use the baseball safe/out rule for baserunners, folks: a tie goes to Bernie, if for no other reason than you're liable to have less of a :censored:storm in the general election with him.
  5. Presuming it's still a horse race, can I persuade you to come to the dark side and vote for Bernie?
  6. Challenge accepted. The scariest part of the whole thing is that my views are more aligned with the Constitution Party than the GOP... which means, in essence, that the GOP has become more right-wing than a party whose founders thought it too liberal for their tastes...
  7. Personally, I hate that. If the two best teams in the NFL come from the AFC or NFC, then the "Super Bowl" becomes anti-climactic. Plus, the AFC/NFC alignment leaves no possibility for some absolutely great potential matchups with the Lombardi Trophy at stake. Imagine how nuts the whole country goes for a Cowboys-Redskins title tilt. Or Raiders-Chargers, Steelers-Browns, Eagles-Giants, or any other number of potential matchups rendered impossible by the AFC/NFC alignment. I'm in favor of expanding the playoffs to 14 teams, but making it a league-wide qualifier: the 8 division champions make it, followed by 6 wild cards without regard to division. Seeding is done solely on record without concern about division champion/wild card status, leaguewide, from 1 - 14. The #1 and #2 seeds get a first round "bye," but no others. 3 vs. 14, 4 vs. 13, 5 vs. 12, 6 vs. 11, 7 vs. 10, and 8 vs. 9 in a Week 18 "Qualifying" Round. Reseed the 8 survivors for the quarter-finals in Week 19, then have the fab four in semi-finals in Week 20 with a Super Bowl berth on the line.
  8. Tank's gotta Tnak...
  9. Me... Sunday... around 6:20 ET.
  10. I wouldn't rule it out at all. I've 'suffered' from depression my entire life (I can't really say 'suffering' with a straight face, because honest to whatever god you want to pray to, I just consider it living my life), but it could have become more acute since starting the BP meds. I know I've been depressed as all get out since they were doubled up, though that could also be attributable to other variables. I didn't. I won't. My level of curiosity only goes so far. If it prevents me from getting an appointment to see him? Yes... yes, I can. Depends. Which Bush?
  11. For as awful as the guy sounds, he seems to score more than Wilt Chamberlain, though.
  12. What a coincidence... I own chicagoblitz.com...
  13. Transit access is inconsequential; Kezar today might handle a good high school football crowd, but that's about it.
  14. My six-year old won an award for "exceptional self discipline" at her kindergarten today. Which to me is akin to Adam Sandler winning an Oscar.
