    Not overly impressive, I had my nine year old doing that last year. There is a short cut using Vedic math concepts for multiplying numbers between 90 and 99, it goes like this:
    To multiply say, 98 x 93, look at the difference between the two numbers and 100. 100-98=2 and 100-93=7. Multiply 2×7 and you get 14, that is the right side of the answer. To get the left side you cross subtract either 98-7 or 93-2, either way you get 91, so the answer to 98×93 is 9114. My son had this down after about 30 minutes of practice. I showed him this method to prove there is always more than one way to solve a math problem (he was having problems with one of the school taught techniques). Even though my Son had it down after 30 minutes, I asked him about it a month later and he completely forgot it.

    So now I have to take my son’s AirHogs copter away from him to avoid the $10K fine. Gee, what about the Estes Model Rockets? What about Kites? What about Frisbees? What about pet birds? What about helium birthday baloons? So I guess this is the end of the NFL, NBA and MLB, they constantly send things flying through the air! And the RC Plane industry just bit the dust!!!

    Does that include those guys who wrote gospels after God spoke to them? It should, right?

    Geneticists have also indicated genetic markers related to rapists, murderers and child molesters. Even if true, does that mean society must accept their behavior? Or grant them special dispensations? Obviously not. Cancer has genetic ties, should we stop fighting it, just announce to the world, oh well that’s the way they were born, sucks to be them! If this is a genetic anomaly, it is one that, if wide spread, would lead to the end of humanity as the procreation rate would drastically decrease.

    Just remember … legalizing POT will have no significant unintended consequences.

    Remind me of the definition of insanity … ” doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result “. Sounds like these folks are insane! Owning a home is not wealth building. Home ownership is like stocks, the gains are ‘unrealized’ until you sell the stock. Same thing with a home, if you sell when the value is high, then you have a gain … you also don’t have a place to live. So, you bought a home worth $200,000 and sold it for $225K, in the mean time you had to replace the AC $10K, then it needed a new roof $15K, new carpets $5K, new range $1200, paint $2K, your wife remodeled the master bath $20k. So how exactly did you build wealth?

    Again we learn a little more about the “Butcher of Benghazi”, what a surprise that she is caught lying again.

    Also, why hasn’t the government taken away the copyright for “REDMAN” chewing tobacco?

    You are all missing the most important point. Why if we can’t have the Washington Redskins, can the pentagon have the Apache, Comanche, Blackhawk, and Kiowa Helicopters … let’s not even mention the Tomahawk missile. Please in the future these helicopters as the Paleface, Cracker, Honkie, and Whitebread. After all we know it’s OK to offend people without color. Yep, it’s time to ship all the albino’s back to wherever they came from.

    Most likely used to connect a lightning rod to a ground stake, the wire is usually heavy gauge copper stranded wire.

    Great!, Now he will blame her for losing his job and probably beat her to death. Well, he’ll be able to go to prison and get married to Aaron Hernandez

    Luke, putting all the chauvinistic BS aside, if a woman was attempting to hurt my wife, or my kids, I would put her down without hesitation. Being a woman does not grant you the right to inflict harm on another person or child. However, in this case, Rice was just being an a-hole.
    As far as the NFL goes, what would you expect, he is a Raven, the NFL screwed that pooch the day they didn’t ban Ray Lewis from the league. But then again he only drove the get away car for a murderer, he didn’t actually kill anyone.

    DLV, you are missing the point, this continual expansion of “equal protection” under the constitution has no end. Marriage is not a US constitutional issue and in my opinion a federal judge has no jurisdiction over a state constitution. What we are seeing is federal judges over riding legal election results. Sometimes the voting populous makes a mistake (take the last two presidential elections for example) but it should be the voting public that corrects it in a later election.

    don’t forget being able to divorce your mother so you can marry your sister/daughter!

    How *** this sexual harassment stuff didn’t mean a thing when Bill Clinton was pres and basically asking every woman he met for a BJ, or groping them in the Oral office.

    All we have to do is take away the perceived benefits of being married. If we take away the tax benefit of being married, and anything that has to do with property or money then the gays won’t care if they can’t marry. Marriage licenses are issued by individual states, not the federal government, so they have no jurisdiction in the matter. This is about as stupid as using the equal protection concept to get rid of the death penalty in states that have it. The federal government exists only because the STATES allow it, and it’s powers are granted by the compact between the states called the constitution.

    What a waste of time and money. But then again we know thanks to CNN that they only beheaded the guy because they are in fear of Obama. PMSNBC said the return to the golf course right after the speech was Obama saying “Screw You!” Well, they are partially correct, they are afraid that Obama’s destruction of the USA is taking too long, so they want to assist. He was saying “Screw You!” but to us tax paying citizens not the terrorists.
    Holder told us we are turning into a nation of cowards, all I can say is the nation is taking in the characteristics of our President.

    Gee, I hope that is sarcasm, if not it’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard on this site.
