    Elena, you are so wrong. I like it!

    When Nebraska scheduled them, the Florida Atlantic head coach was Carl Pelini, brother of Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini. Carl used to be Defensive Coordinator at Nebraska, under his brother. It was supposed to be a Pelini vs Pelini game. Then some things happened and Carl was no longer the coach at FA.

    Actually, the play as reviewed and he did have control before he went out of bounds. From another angle, you can see that his right hand had grabbed the ball “like a loaf of bread” before he went out of bounds. This allowed him to bring it around to the front of his body. There was no bobbling as he brought it to the front. It was firmly grasped in his hand as it came around.

    If you look at it from another angle in slow motion, he clearly had control of the ball with his right hand before he went out of bounds, and maintained control after he was out of bounds. They did review the play and confirmed that he had control with a foot in bounds.

    FatherPriest, Yes, I expect you to buy two seats, buy first class ticket, ask the agent to seat you by an empty seat, or drive. There are several solutions to your problem, but the bottom line is that it’s your problem. You deal with it.

    That reminded me of the crash at Knoxville, IA in July 1979 that took the life of Dick Stoneking. That was my first sprint car race (spectator, not participant). Some of the cars had wings, some didn’t. Mr. Stoneking’s car didn’t have a wing and was trailing the pack trying to keep up with the winged cars. He never came out of the slide on turn 4 and crashed into the flag stand. The two men in the flag stand were taken to the hospital. If I remember right, one of them was paralyzed as a result of the crash.

    There’s another film opening October 17th with a similar story line – A Matter of Faith.

    The most effective parenting method I’ve used is to follow up with promised punishment. No second chance (or as I’ve seen with some parents, no 3rd, 4th, 5th, … 143rd chance). A simple “Stop that or I’ll (fill-in-the-blank)”. Followed by “And you know I’ll do it.” You have to follow up a few times, but they quickly find out you mean what you say.

    Works with kids. Works with world leaders. (I haven’t tried it on world leaders. I’m making an observation there.)

    I gotta admit. I’m confused about the whole GBLTLMNO and sometimes Y thing. Is she saying that Mrs. Obama is really a guy pretending to be a girl? Or, really a girl that wants to be a guy?

    Agreed. And, evolution requires massive amounts of new genetic information to go from a cricket to a bald eagle. This is a loss of something that it had the ability to do before. Silent crickets have less genetic information, not more.

    “If you accept genetic mutation, you manifestly accept evolution.”

    No, you’re wrong. Let me tell you why. Biology is full of complex systems. Mutations cannot create complex systems in one step (as must happen for evolution to be true). In most cases, anything less than a full working system is a disadvantage to survival, and, using the evos own definition, is selected out of the gene pool in subsequent generations. Frog-to-prince evolution required massive amounts of new genetic information appearing all at once. Evolution cannot explain that. They just hope no one asks logical questions.

    “hit the breaks”?

    That’s exactly what I was thinking. Trout need cold flowing water. The kid needs a bigger shovel and a constant underground water source if he’s going to build a trout pond. An excavator would be a good idea, too.

    I’m not sure he’s comparing apples to apples. I think he’s using the cost of ink in inkjet printers, then extrapolating it to the cost of ink used by a printing shop for published documents. I suspect ink for printing reams of pages in much less than ink in ink jet printers. And I really don’t believe that government offices or schools are using ink jet printers, rather than laser printers.

    This is kind of a morning DJ story. They are amazed at pretty much anything, but never bother to learn any details.

    Actually, the ~question~ was Wayne Gretzky. Alex read the answer.

    I’ve lived in the Midwest my whole life, and I’ve never heard of anyone putting Ranch dressing on their pizza. (Of course, I’ve never considered Texas as part of the Midwest, either. I thought Texas was Southwest.)

    That said, it might be an improvement for Neapolitan pizza. That stuff is pathetic. Burned crust and soggy in the middle. But, some people like it and are willing to pay a premium for it. To each his own.

    At least they spelled Wichita correctly. That’s a plus.

    I don’t know if I should be more worried that I’ve never heard of most of those artists, or that my taste in music aligns with Delaware?

    I’m pretty sure he went to school in Hawaii:
