We had the test done on our first child because they noticed some issues during a routine check-up during pregnancy.  Needless to say my wife was a wreck until we got the results that everything was fine.  Big Props to the University of Iowa's medical team on keeping my wife calm through the whole thing and providing us some free 3D images of her in the womb.  Awesome place.  They told us that the scanning equipment used today is so much more advanced then before that they often see things now they never saw before and so they push that panic button to be safe.  

Anyways, we didn't have it done on #2 and all is well.

We used to do the New in the summer/spring time.  The water was colder, but the rapids were much more fun then when they release the dam in September.  That is just my opinion though.

The iphone/android or windows/apple debate has to do with a very simple issue and that is customization.  People that like the freedom to customize what they own, to have an unlimited number of ways to do something, tend to prefer windows and android.  People that want their lives simpler, and therefore because everything is standardized, faster, tend to lean on apple.

There are positives and negatives to both depending on the situation.  I for one hate apple, but am forced to use the phone for work (at the time we were not able to choose, now of course, all the newer employees have the samsungs and i'm stuck with this thing until I'm allowed an upgrade).

If you enjoy building your own pc, tinkering around with whatever you want to make it faster, or add to it when it starts to slow down, then you enjoy Windows or Linux.  If you don't give a shit and just want to browse the internet, buy an apple.  Really this debate has its roots in the pc game industry from the late 90's/early 2000's when apply royally fucked a lot of young gamers when they bought these nice high end machines which got outpaced by PC's because they couldn't upgrade the hardware easily.

If there is one thing they do well at these schools its feed their players.  They may not compensate them for profiting off their images, or allow them to make money on their own image, but they damn well feed those monsters or they wouldn't play very well.

My only stance is similar to Meyer's stance, if they add any more games, they need to add scholarships.  For every additional game, 10 more scholarships should be allowed.

Uh DJ, that would be Minnesota not Indiana.  Indiana shows a profit actually.

No worries, excel is hard.

You should have your foot looked at.  Unless you are a sasquatch.

I think the unspoken word though is that he is saying he has 30+ MILLION dollars to spare.  gonna make that whole pay the athlete argument difficult to stop.

I know you are just making light of the situation, but personally, firing a guy for this situation is a shitty deal.  Alcohol abuse is no joke, and the university should instead invest in their new employee and try to get him counseling instead of just tossing him to the gutter.  How they think that will make things better is beyond me.

I know if I were to get into a similar situation, my employer would not outright fire me.  In fact i'm pretty sure it's illegal to do so in some cases.  I may be stretching it on that though i'm not sure.

I'm not a fan of people on here saying he couldn't lead this offense or he isn't accurate, or can't read defenses.  None of you have a clue as to what he can or can't do.  You all seem to have a very short memory that this kid was the starter of this offense before his shoulder and you all thought the end of buckeye football was about to happen this past season when it did.  

Mentally that kid is obviously better then he was 2 years ago, he's had plenty of time to study this offense.  Physically?  If his shoulder is 100% he will be outstanding, or do you need to be reminded who the strength and conditioning coach is at our university?

You can say you want one of the other two at the helm and that is fine, we obviously couldn't screw this up, but don't make shit up about Braxton to disregard him.  That shit pisses me off, especially as dedicated as he has been to this program.

If there is one gaurantee in life it is that older generations think the current generation:

1) Music sucks

2) Parenting is worse or too easy on the kids

3) Kids get away with more

4) Kids have it easier

This last point drives me nuts, of course kids have it easier that is the point of progress.

This was on purpose i'm sure.  DJ is clever like that.

congrats!  I would put in a special request to change it so you don't lose your stickers.
