Thanks for that.
Twenty-Five Things You Totally Won't Believe Kirk Herbstreit Said!
I would much rather have their blue-collar nature, grit, or scrappiness tbh
Oh, but he does. Just with Ohio State is all.
You can still be a complete moron with phd's, mba's and ivy league degrees
One of my PhDs is in proper apostrophe usage.
Well it is NFL Draft related, and the NFL Draft is probably the largest societal ill out there, so I suppose you're right.
The Lichtenstein exhibit that was went through at the National Gallery was pretty fantastic.
Yeah but bourbon's never been pulled as a remedy.
It's just science.
The vacant property thing is redundant vis-a-vis The Wire and nailguns, anyways.
But mostly, let's get excited to go to Baltimore and eat delicious pit beef and drink wonderful Natty Bohs.
Wonderfully reductive resumes for the final four:
"It's 'supported the troops' vs. 'first to fly', with the winner meeting the winner of 'beat hitler' vs. 'beat the south'! Stay tuned, haters of nuance!"
James Bond is timeless/the best, Internet User Bodast67.
Charles Martin Hall lost in the first round. I'm still pissed about that and have not voted since. So it goes.
In my best Shirley Bassey voice:
Guitons are foreveeeeerrrrr
I know there are reasons that this absolutely will not happen.
You sure you know this?
I haven't heard anything about that. Polio is about to be announced as eradicated in India, which is remarkable given the amount of effort that goes into these types of things. The LA Times has had great, unflinching coverage of vaccine-preventable outbreaks as of late.
The mumps thing is a goddamned shame. A neat thing about the year [any year after 1950] is that in America, children don't just drop dead from disease—because of vaccines.
But thanks, anti-vaccers! Due to your hustle, there's mumps in Columbus and measles in Manhattan.
Maryland and the ACC are the equivalent of two drunk bros pushing each other outside a bar while screaming "COME AT ME BRO" and acting like their friends are the only things holding them back.
Having been to a Maryland/Da U football game in College Park, I'd say that Maryland and the ACC are not the equivalent of this. Your description is exactly who Maryland and the ACC are.
COME AT ME, BRO
I laughed about 'you live there', because I live both in DC and also in the world of aluminum chemistry.
Uh, Humphry Davy didn't invent aluminum.
Now listen, Neil Armstrong may have been the first to walk on the moon, but what good has that really done us?
Landing on the goddamned moon is, apparently, less impressive and impactful than making you hate a sportsball team. Okay. Congrats on your job at Slate dot com.
The top of the Washington Monument is capped with a block of aluminum; it was one of the most expensive metals on earth before Hall (and Héroult) figured out how to turn alumina into aluminum. Now aluminum is ubiquitous. Science forever.
I am going to assume you didn't want red hot conflicts of interest, so that's why you left me out of the science bracket.
