Don't expect a reply. Enjoy the season Degan, I look forward to seeing which of us is right.

No, you're absolutely right. I've always been frustrated by the facet of this board's culture that suggests that one should try to "win" debates. That's something that bothered me enough that, when I noticed it growing on me, I took a pretty lengthy sabbatical from the board. That trying-to-"win"-de...

Yes, because I try not to have completely unsupported opinions. The opinion that I do have, and that I do believe is supported, is that governmental agencies should be open to litigation if they act foolishly, regardless of whether or not those actions are following policy to the letter, as you clai...

As already mentioned, spouses sharing a bank account is common. Further, I don't think anyone is suggesting that searching should begin immediately. However, don't you think there's a bit of a difference between two days and eight? Don't you think there's a difference between taking eight days to f...

The stats don't support any such claim? How many rushing yards did LSU have in the first half? So, let's just ignore the overall game performance and the season up to this point and focus on one atypical quarter as proof of your assertion, I suppose. Riddle me this, Batman, which is more likely: th...

Uh uh, Howedar. You're the one trying to make the "LSU has egg on its face" argument when the game stats don't support any such assertion and the only resort left is pointing to the Tigers having a bit of a stumble in the second quarter as its "proof". The stats don't support any such claim? How ma...

Uh huh. And for all that, Tulane couldn't capitalise on the shock they dealt to LSU in any meaningful way, and went on to get curbstomped. And for all the beating they delivered to Flynn, he still completes 16/29 for 258 yds passing. LSU faced a bit of adversity, but recovered and simply ran all ov...

Why not look for the cell signal concurrently with bank statements, especially when it's par for the course for a married couple to share a bank account?

It's not as if that action takes any meaningful money or time.

Degan: I disagree; if SC even shows a pulse through four quarters today, then LSU has egg on its face. A Conference USA school should not be able to be ahead of the #2 team in the country until the end of the second quarter. Um, Tulane held only a brief lead over LSU (for about 1.40) and then got t...

I think the bigger story is the fact that the police refused the husbands requests to assist with a search for her and in fact, arrested him for her murder. I smell a massive out of court settlement coming. The followed policy to the letter - even the world's biggest ambulance chaser would think tw...

All I got out of that second paragraph was "other people misinterpreted your post and nobody misinterpreted mine" (possibly because nobody else responded to you, but you forgot to mention that). Did you take lessons at the Darkstar School of Brevity?

Cal didn't escape in any sense - a #6 vs. #11 matchup (especially this early in the season) really is a tossup. And playing at Oregon... there would have been no shame in a Cal loss.

Re: Sexualization of Young Girls and Pedophilia

And now when you think of the Amber alerts and the apparent plague of child predators you have to wonder if society is helping breed them with this implicit sexualization of young girls. I don't see a similar trend among young boys. I don't see revealing clothing, muscle shirts, etc that make young...

Showering is a night thing for me. I started that when I was running track and cross-country in high school and we did late afternoon runs. Now, I guess I like to sleep in those extra fifteen minutes or something.

Perhaps the designers didn't want to succumb to TA-style unit spam. Is a BMD sufficiently different from a BMP in a game-level-of-detail sense?
