Re: NCAA Football 2012 Season

Just got finished watching that game myself on ESPN3.com. That goal-line stand was epic.

Re: NCAA Football 2012 Season

I turned off the Iron Bowl midway through the third quarter. That was an ugly, ugly, UGLY game. It had basically ended when Alabama took the opening kickoff. One commentator at the half gabbled about the conversation that will doubtless be held between Gene Chizik and the AD at Auburn. But it's not ...

Re: What if — Star Trek without FTL

Suppose that back in 1963, when Gene Roddenberry was creating Star Trek, he had made a decision to stick a lot closer to scientific plausibility by rejecting faster-than-light travel and instead depicting the Enterprise voyaging the galaxy via very fast sublight journeys taking the crew to the vari...

Re: [Official Thread] OBAMA WINS RE-ELECTION

"We just weren't conservative ENOUGH ". Republicans... Predictable as the sunrise. Expect far more obstruction in congress the next two years. And it would not surprise me at all if the House Tealiban started working up an impeachment bill against Obama. I think everyone called this. It was clear t...

Fox News on why the Republicans lost: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/11/06/where-republican-party-goes-from-here/ Basically, Romney sucked because he was too moderate. So yeah, MORE CONSERVATISM is still apparently what the Republicans are going to take away from this election. "We just weren'...

Re: [Official Thread] OBAMA WINS RE-ELECTION

Well I'm happy. Not so much that Obama won, but that the republicans lost. I wonder when the GOP realizes that pandering to right wing extremists, anti-intellectuals, the greedy, racists and homophobes, lunatics, misogynists, fundamentalists, warmongers and people who enjoy sucking Netanyahu's cock...

Re: [Official Thread] 2012 US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

Voted today after picking up my son from school. Took him into the polling place for an impromptu civics lesson. I'd also driven my mother to her polling station earlier today as her car is still in the repair dock.

Re: When The Wind Blows - nuclear war animated movie

The first thing I thought of viewing that scene was of the Black Rain that fell on Hiroshima after the bombing, and what inevitably happened to the people who swallowed it.

Re: Presidential Debate Obama VS Romney Round 1

Meanwhile, what does Romney have to crow about? "Winning" the debate, and a small bump in the polls that will evaporate quickly... And it doesn't look like Mittens even got that. The poll numbers at Real Clear Politics look not to have moved a point, Obama's leads in Ohio and Wisconsin —two key bat...

Re: Presidential Debate Obama VS Romney Round 1

If Romney wins, it becomes largely irrelevant that he looks stupid to foreigners- if anything that makes it worse. They aren't voting in the election; they're just awaiting it. So yes, I do think it's appropriate to analyze the debates in terms of domestic reaction, not foreign. Nearly any politica...

Re: Presidential Debate Obama VS Romney Round 1

Would you believe Obama's debate performance was that poor that it can be ranked along with Ford or Dukakis statements. I didn't feel Obama did that poorly or Romney that well for it to have that drastic an effect, but I'm not the best judge of such things. It could have been a lot better than it w...

Re: Presidential Debate Obama VS Romney Round 1

I have a more fundamental question: Are these debates really THAT important, or are they just a hugely inflated media balloon with little actual importance? Possible that these had been important in the past, but I'm quite unsure about today. Personally I wonder why these are hyped so much. After a...

Re: Presidential Debate Obama VS Romney Round 1

Obama won, though it was not as big a win as he could have gotten. I agree he should have gone for the jugular, but he might have been too concerned about maintaining presidential dignity on stage. As it was, he was calm and collected, got in several good shots, and Mittens didn't lay a glove on him...
