Not totally, he's a beast alright and Seattle would be mediocre without him.
Most people in this country are no longer embarrassed by such behavior - in fact, it's perfectly acceptable. So, this theory that they want Wilson is completely bogus.
Actually I like the fact that he refuses to talk to the press. All they want to do is twist everything he says. How many times do you need to answer the same questions before you just say "enough already". It reminds me of Dwayne Thomas, a running back for the Cowboys in the 70's. The press had written some nasty (and untrue) things about him, so he stopped talking. And then the press condemned his for not talking. Screw the press. They love you until they need to sell papers, then they will butcher you for no reason.

As a designer, trust me, Apple iPads, iPods, and iPhones are the best quality devices you can own. If you don’t like iOS then fine, whatever, but Apple hardware is simply the best.

Sprint does everything it can NOT to show you how much your phone will REALLY cost. I signed up for a $50/month plan and I’m paying $80/month. They never factor in lot of extra fees when showing you your “total.”
The first month cost me $400 on my $50/month plan. Just stay away from Sprint. If it sounds too good to be true that’s because it is.
I don’t have a problem making calls, but if I’m in a 3G zone I can’t download ANYTHING or get a webpage to work. Apparently the ‘net only works on LTE, and that’s only in large cities and towns. It’s best just to assume you’ll have no internet service if you’re traveling.

Basically she’s saying that she would allow illegals special privileges as a way for the government to organize their deportation priorities.
So, yeah – she’s for amnesty. Did you really think Obama would choose her if she wasn’t?

The whole idea behind these things is stupid. Working out is about HEALTH, not numbers. If you’re chasing a number then you’re doing it wrong. Health doesn’t come from calorie burning, it comes from a balance between mind and body.
Also, these devices aren’t magical – they use accelerometers, so if your wrist isn’t moving because it’s on the handlebars of a bike but your feet are peddling furiously, the device doesn’t “know” what your legs are doing. It can still monitor your heart rate, but sitting still and watching politics can increase your heart rate, too – doesn’t mean you’re burning any significant calories.
These things are a fad, nothing more. People buy them to remind themselves to think healthy, but actually using the device doesn’t necessarily make you healthier.
long time ago when pedometers came out, my boss has the waitresses wear them to see how much we walked in a shift, see who was doing their fair share? there was one waitress who would sit at the staff table and bounce her knee (more of a nervous twitch i think) and her pedometer would read 6 kms more than mine...and she was the laziest worker, rarely leave the table! so glad when i went to graveyard shift!
technology does not trump common sense
Not true. And they can track cycling if you wear it on your ankle.

On the bright side, Jackie Chan can film his next movie there for super-cheap!
I bet you're a fan of the t.v. program "Supernatural". (I am) :)

This entire race issue is a smokescreen that conceals the real problem: poor culture in America. The thug life is the problem, not race. There are a lot of white thugs out there, too – it’s this crime and poverty and drugs cycle that churns out these lost kids.
Bingo. Also, it is the ol' leger de main- slight of hand trickery of the lame stream media to keep hashing this stuff out. This is the agenda set in place so sheeple will "look at my hand over here", while what is going on in the other is something vile indeed.

Spending money is great, for individual reasons and for worldly reasons. When people don’t spend money it’s called a depression.
Sure is a quality machine, that bends, that runs out of charge in less than a day, that drops signal where others don’t, that offers a pay option that most retailers have rejected, that claims NFC is an innovation while others have had it for years, that sports an O.S. that is basically ten years old and covered with band-aids, that as virtually no security despite the claims of apple, that turns colour in your jeans pocket, that is pretty near guaranteed to shatter if you drop it, that is limited to apps from the apple store, that has an email programme that was written when mail was delivered on horse back, that boasts a map / gps system that is about as reliable as your daughter’s boyfriend, that has back doors built in for the NSA, a finger print scanner that was broken on the second day after release and can pretty much mark the user out as a techno-snob.
Yes you are right those are the qualities of a “Quality machine”.
Sadly the BlackBerry PassPort offers none of the above features. But that is the difference between a consumer phone and a professional phone.

Yeah, but the Ferguson thing is backfiring. They’re not racial riots like the Left hoped – they’re anti-police protest. The police ARE the government (Government: AKA the machine that drives radical Progressive growth). In fact, the the police are a direct branch of the Executive arm of the government, and that’s run by Obama.
When Obama organized for ACORN he was organizing against banks and corporations, NOT rallying against the government. There’s really no way that Progressives can spin this to their favor, politically.
We are seeing plenty of Progressive groups flock to the area, though, and I believe they’re doing so to spread racial animosity. They will attempt to turn this into a racial issue and an anti-firearm issue, and they’ll do it by whispering false information and half-truths to the gullible, uninformed fools that are taking to the streets for reasons they don’t understand.

Uh, no. We are assuming there is life out there, but there’s absolutely no proof of that. Belief in life throughout the Universe (and in many ways, science) is just as much based on faith as religion.
Remember, at one time we believed that the atom was the smallest building block of the Universe. We, as humans, believed it to be fundamentally true and irrefutable. Turns out that’s not the case. Just because we believe something to be scientific fact does not mean it is – science is wrong an overwhelming percentage of the time.

I’m 6’2″ and it’s not all that great being tall. I have a high center of gravity so lifting things is not fun. Regular-sized houses are too small – I have to bend over double in order to wash my face in the sink. Pant legs are always too short, pant waists too large.
About the only advantage it gives me is in tennis, hanging things from the ceiling, and using the top shelves in the kitchen to maximum effect.
I'm 5'11" and I can barely fit laying down on standard size couches and mattresses. I really would not want to be taller, but I don't think I would want to be shorter either.
Exact same here (6'2"). And don't you just hate those low hanging tree branches?
One other advantage. Little old ladies love us in the grocery store...

That makes no sense. It’s the failure of the government that allowed Ebola into the country in the first place – so to blame this on anti-government protesters is nonsense. It’s worse than nonsense – it’s exactly the opposite of what a sane person would conclude.
But, I see what she’s doing. This is a pre-emptive attack on the opposition to Large Government. I’m not sure attacking first will make much of a difference in the end, though. In the end our government will take the blame because only our government could act to quarantine the virus and prevent it from reaching US soil. They failed.
You really believe that? In our culture? In Chicago culture?
I think what Jayms meant is that individuals can allocate funds a lot more wisely than our government does. $500 would be the cost for one meal and glass of water for those in office. The church can provide a months worth of meals with that money.
