I think you'd be right that they weren't taught to rape, but that isn't the same as being taught not to rape. I imagine there are many, many families where respecting and not assaulting women is not a topic of conversation, but it should be. I have no idea what it'll be like when my daughter (1 yr old) is a teenager, but I'm scared for her.

Don't sweat it, IBS&G. I was in high school when the song came out. And she's 56 and looking great. She's aging like Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

DJ, I think in Spanish, "of" and "the" would automatically be contracted, so it should read "ASCENSIÓN DEL GUAPO."

Don't you mean Mr. Gray. Or would it be Mr. Scarlet? 

EDIT: Guess I should have hit refresh before I posted. Good post, Psibuck.

But the purple is just a mix of black and white rice steamed together, so you already have white rice in your bowl.

Tressel wouldn't be Tressel without the 10-win seasons. By which I mean, Tressel would be Cooper 2.0 in the minds of many Buckeye faithful were it not for his consistently winning. He may be the best person on the face of the earth, but that doesn't justify paying him millions a year for routinely going .500 +/- .100.

If memory serves (it's been a few years since I've taken in a game at the 'Shoe), sodas are served solely in cups -- no cans are given out. So I would imagine they'd do the same with beer. I don't know why an organization would allow vendors to sell beverages in bottles (glass/metal/plastic/whatever) or cans at a stadium. Even if people are completely sober, there will be one idiot who tries to chuck it onto the field of play.

Around here, growler prices are usually just a bit less than the price you pay at a bar on a per-beer basis (in other words, if a 32-oz growler is $11 at the growler shop, that same beer in a bar is probably $6/pint). So, my rule of thumb is never to get a growler of a beer you can buy in 6- or 4-pack form. (I know some people who talk about how on tap is so much better than bottled/canned, even from the same batch -- which may be true, but I think the difference is minimal and with a growler the needle moves from growler to bottle/can shortly after you unscrew the growler for the first time.) But it really depends on what you like. I drink mostly IPAs (porters and stouts in the cooler months), and can't stand wheats/farmhouse/saisons. Do they let you sample before choosing? If so, definitely do that. The shop I go to allows 4 free samples, and often will push them on you if you've chosen your growler after 2-3 samples. That's my kind of customer service!

I've lived in Charlotte 15 years and I've certainly enjoyed 75-degree days in January. But more often than not, it's in the 40s or 50s for a high (avg high for early January is 51), and it gets cold quickly when the sun goes down. I just don't see us getting the CFP NC game.

I respectfully disagree. To a certain extent, it's too soon to tell -- TD only has one season in the can; we'll have to see whether they can continue what they started (Homeland was supposed to be another Golden Era classic, but fell off the rails after a couple seasons). And while I enjoyed Season 1 of TD, the ending was crap. Breaking Bad knew how to stick the landing, and did so each season.

Yeah, I think you've nailed it, 18. Coaches can keep injuries to a minimum by telling players not to hit as hard, etc. I would not want the Buckeyes to go up against Toledo or BGSU or UC and have some idiot on the other team try to make a name for himself and cause a serious injury on a Buckeye starter. Talk about all risk, no reward. Sure, it'd help the little guy (like UCF, or BGSU), but I don't think it helps Ohio State at all.
