  1. She actually turned down his proposal. He is therefore going to marry her anyway.

    Mully, please check in!

    [quote name='Fulcher_33' timestamp='1299845567' post='976563'] Thanks for checking. It's an uneasy feeling after something like that. I don't want to go to bed tonight. [/quote] Glad your okay. I totally understand the not wanting to sleep part. My wife and I went through a tornado and couldn't sleep upstairs for two months after we finally got back into our house. Be safe.
  3. [quote name='AmishBengalFan' timestamp='1299743245' post='976276'] I used to date a girl from Eaton.... (local humor) [/quote] I married a girl from Eaton. She did live in Dayton for a while now that I think about it......

  5. [quote name='bengaled' timestamp='1299603986' post='975742'] that's what happens when you're king of the hill. i've seen it happen time after time. the major knock on nick fairley (and bowers, too) is they were both established early on as the two elite players in this draft. the thing that's important for me, in judging fairley, is this. he and marcell dareus both played in the same division, against the same competition. so their body of work is comparable. while it's true they played different positions, their assignments were similar enough to form an opinion. also entering into this comparison is the fact that i watched the majority of both their games throughout the year. dareus had a fairly uneventful year, by comparison. he played on an alabama defense that was stocked to the gills. he was not targeted by offensive coordinators like fairley was. in spite of all that, fairley still was the clear standout of the two, and it wasn't just for a couple games. it was for damned near every comparable measure throughout the year. fairley had less help and was more targeted. he faced more double (and sometimes triple) teams than dareus did. he had over twice the tackles, in spite of teams trying to run away from him. he had twice the tackles for loss. he had 2 1/2 times the sacks. the important thing is it wasn't just a matter of comparing the numbers... you saw all that when you watched the games. this decision is a no brainer for me. i really like marcell and think he's a fine player, but he's a different breed of cat than nick is. they do different things. marcell's a much better hole plugger. he's more advanced in understanding multiple concepts and schemes. he's clearly more versatile. but at the end of the day, those aren't the reasons why i want a DT in this draft. i want to add nick's gap shooting ability to the mix. i think he gets the best jump off the ball of anyone in this entire draft. i didn't formulate that opinion with a stopwatch timing 10 yd splits with guys in tennis shoes and shorts. there's an explosion that happens there that's a beautiful thing to watch. it's rare...very rare for a defensive tackle. i also think nick is incredible at finishing plays, especially closing the gap on the QB. and you don't see nick getting juked much for a speed guy, and that's really important. i'm not so worried about the knocks on his not being as polished. defensive tackle is one of the easier pro positions to make an early impact at. i think nick will pick up all that they can throw at him. it's no secret who i'd like to take at #4, and hasn't been for a long time. i still remain worried we won't get that option.

    [quote name='Jamie_B' timestamp='1298578518' post='972647'] Or we could go after wall street for theft and really address the issues at the heart of the problems we face. [/quote] Umm they have been. I hope they catch anyone that has committed a crime there and prosecute them to the fullest extent. Theft is theft no matter who perpetrates it.

    Hope and Change? Not for Americans

    [quote name='Elflocko' timestamp='1298510467' post='972485'] [size="4"][/size] [/quote] Obama is losing his base. Quickly. He will have to move further to the center in order to have a chance in 2012. "Democracy—real democracy, the kind people are fighting for in Bahrain and Madison, is incompatible with free-market capitalism." --Wow.

    [quote name='Jamie_B' timestamp='1298572455' post='972625'] Which explains why they are turning down money for high speed rail. This isnt about the budget or job, if you created more jobs by taking that money for rail you would have more revenue in taxes for your budget. This is purely about busting the unions. [/quote] Good. Bust them. Then charge their leaders with racketeering.

    Can I talk about toothpicks again?

    That is really cool. Thanks for sharing it.

    Suckers with North facing houses in Denver...

    [quote name='Elflocko' timestamp='1298565965' post='972597'] Damn straight. On top of no lawn work, painting, etc... [/quote] Yep. I would never go back to owning a house again.

    Western PA has some interesting weather stuff too. The town we live in is literally on a mountain top so when the surrounding areas get snow we tend to get 3-4 inches more. There have been times that we would get 4 inches and a mile away there is no new snow at all. In the summer time we get the lions share of the rain too. We had a severe storm last summer and it seemed like the clouds were low enough to reach up and touch. It was a little spooky. As far as shoveling, we don't do that. That is just one of the joys of owning a condo instead of a house.

    [quote name='MichaelWeston' timestamp='1298496378' post='972427'] I will give you 15000 dollars for your car. Deal. Ok now that you have given me your car i wish to only pay you 7500 How is labor using there only power against the owners not capatilistic. Is it only capitilism when the owners have the power? [/quote] Employees are entitled to competitive wages. If they are worth more than they are getting it is their responsibility to go out and get it somewhere else. It is not their job to game the system and bilk the rest of us by creating an artificial and ultimately destructive labor bubble. These thugs are doing the same thing that the UAW did to GM and Chrysler but this time the tax payer is footing the bill. As a matter of fact the tax payer had to foot the bill for the larceny with GM and Chrysler as well.

    How cute. [quote name='Elflocko' timestamp='1298497595' post='972432'] "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." ~John Rogers [/quote]

    Making people fund their own retirement and earn their raises through merit based standards is just awful. Capitalist pigs I tell ya. rabble!
  15. [quote name='Tigris' timestamp='1298348390' post='972040'] Holy crap. I went to Bluffton. If you were driving on 75 and sneezed you would miss the place. Crazy. [/quote] I used to drive that stretch a lot when my wife was working on her PHD at BGSU and I was at UD. That was also the school whose baseball team had that accident in ATL the same day we had a tornado destroy half our town and my business in south GA. Crazy stuff.
