First of all, Facebook and Twitter are not government IT systems, their security is moderate to weak. It is just as easy for ISIS to take over CENTCOM’s FB page as it is for them to take over yours. This “hack” doesn’t indicate a weakness in our military networks, just our public ones.

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.
You are the man. Thank you. I had to laugh when you posted that a month later he forgot it. I'm glad I'm not the only one.
Many people here praising this kid and this method don't realize this is a common core method being taught now and was taught decades ago to the students that participated in math competitions.
doesn’t work with 90 x 90. 100-90 = 10 ; 10 x 10 = 100 ; 100 is the right side number. 90 – 10 = 80 ; so using your shortcut the answer to 90 x 90 is 80100, which would be wrong in my world. Vedic math only applies to concepts that always work. Like 1, 2, 5, 9, 10, and 11, times tables.

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.
If you are unable to distinguish the difference between sexual behavior between two consenting adults and criminal behavior committed against non-consenting children then that is your own failure as a human being.

Just remember … legalizing POT will have no significant unintended consequences.
By your "reasoning", since alcohol is legal then everything would have been okay if instead of smoking pot Ward had just had a few stiff drinks before the race.
BETTER point in this is the current worlds willingness to sue/
"but the prosecutor asked the grand jury to consider charges of second-degree manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide."
Yes send the guy who hit the dude HIGH ON DRUGS to jail for NOT MISSING HIM.....
Being under the influence of either pot or alcohol when driving, and more so driving a racing car, is stupid. We do have morons who believe that they can drive better when using pot and / or alcohol, and no one will ever convince them that they are wrong--both drugs also make them smart, in their perspective!
Legalizing marijuana is totally irrelevant to this situation since he smoked it illegally. Either way if Tony had been high or Ward would have been driving there would be some very serious charges brought. Legalizing it would have made no difference here. Alcohol is legal but it's illegal to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence. It's already illegal to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of marijuana. Personally I don't think smoking it is the smartest thing to do but I don't need the government telling me that. I'll just never understand you people who want the government to do everything for you.
Any one and everyone (other than our grand leader) who is in any active sport is subject to injury or even death. That is what makes it exciting to watch. This is why there is never a long line to watch someone fish. I've seen golf carts flip over, golfers get hit by long drives, and people on the sidelines get killed by getting hit by a ball. Was it the golfers fault for hitting the ball that killed someone? I have an idea for a new sport. Let's sit in one corner and watch others sitting in the opposite corner.
What laws have been written for "under the influence" of marijuana have no scientific backing. Your body fat can store the "chemical" for up to a month. Smoke users could be clean 3 weeks and still show amount enough to be legally DUID.
Refer madness is over. God made pot. Man made beer. Who do you trust. Also, the marihuana tax act that was signed by a progressive president. Let free men live free.
You're right, it won't. After all, people who want to smoke pot are going to do it regardless, as evidenced by the fact that this incident took place in New York of all places.
Yea sure!!!! Pot has no harmful effects and it is less evil than drinking......Sure........
I live in Colorado and these idiots spend almost $400 an oz at the recreational pot stores for it. Must be nice to burn that kind of money up. It scares me driving; I am waiting to see the reports for pot related traffic crashes.
And right about now in Colorado there are millions of out control potheads "who are not professional drivers" on the road,the best way to spot them is throw a twinkie out the window while driving and watch the rush of folks vacating their cars making a mad dash for the tasty little treat.
Bring back prohibition, I say.
Alcohol is legal. Getting behind the wheel of a car under the influence, whether or not it is on a city street or a race track is illegal. If he were still drunk from a night of partying would you be saying the same thing?
If pot were legal it is still illegal to get behind the wheel of a vehicle if you are impaired. Therefore your analogy is based on a false logic.
I heard that alcohol may have negative effects also. I vote for prohibition.
Taking away the legal disincentive to have pot won't necessarily have a significant impact on the amount of people who consume it, in fact one could argue that less people will consume it because it'll no longer be a way to "rebel against the system". Drugs should be treated as a health issue and NOT a criminal issue.
Hey Colorado! Idiotic choice.
I just sat on a Grand Jury for a month recently. I am bothered by this case even being brought to the Grand Jury. There is NO REASON to even present this case, so public pressure must have pushed them. My problem with that is that, in our Grand Jury, during a debate, one of the jurors said after already sending 5 cases to trial that "Our job isn't to decide weather or notf there is enough evidence for this case to go to trial". I almost fell down, I said, "That is our ONLY job"!!! It scared me how prosecuters waited and used "NEW" Grand Jurors to slip in a couple weak cases.
It hasn't had any. Nothing has changed except now there is room in the jails for real criminals. If you don't like it, don't smoke it.
That is correct; in fact ask the libertarians and democrats and they will proudly tell you how marijuana will cure all childhood diseases and bring comfort to those in extremis without having any negative effect; I think they add that they are on the "right side of history", a favorite saying of their president.
Dang...that was shocking.
Let me start by saying: I don't smoke pot.
With that said, it would have no more unintended consequences than if the driver was drinking alcohol. Poor decisions are poor decisions and any decision made under the influence of any intoxicating or mind altering substance are generally skewed.
Perfect example: My first marriage.
Pot is illegal in jurisdiction where the accident occurred, and that didn't stop the young man from smoking weed and driving a race car. The kid lost his life because of his own stupidity. I blame the young man and his parents for this tragic death, he was an entitled little rich boy who didn't like losing so he got out of his race car to confront the big bad Tony Stewart who bumped him and made him lose control of the race car, and the poor little rich boy lost his life because of his inability to control his temper.
The dope smoking idiot, Ward, also moved in front of Stewart's car just before he was hit. Smoking dope is stupid... along with taking any other kind of illegal narcotic.

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.
Ah...more of the irrational obsession with "Benghazi"....

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.

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.

Homosexuality is all part of God’s plan so get used to it.
That's true, but that doesn't mean Christians should sit idly by while it's glorified into something it's not. However, that ISN'T to say that a disagreement with the lifestyle should be transformed into anger or hatred toward homosexuals or those who push that agenda. In addition, we shouldn't reply with anger toward those who misconstrue our disagreement as hatred when it isn't. Too many people on either side get too personal and completely set back those who are actually trying to create progress in the discussion/debate.

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.

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.
I'm waiting for the states to let their "stones" drop and hold a constitutional convention to get an amendment going to tell the fed govt to "stay in their lane" , even though that was what the 10th was supposed to be about.
Either that or start seceding. The PC b/s is getting out of hand.
you are totally right. the gays want the benefits of marriage, and right now the gays are being treated separately and unequally.
"... 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...."
And neither will heteros. THAT, my friend, would be the destruction of the institute of marriage and the destruction of the family unit. It is that kind of thinking that needs to be feared and not two consenting adults wanting to marry each other.

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.
