My caption: Front row, far right... yes please!

This was my first thought when I saw the thread title... it appears I was 18 hours too late with my comment.

And as an apology for my delayed response...

State... I dont have much hair as it is and doing it at a federal level might well cause the rest of it to fall out and drive me totally insane! LOL

Coal jobs? You know economies are ever evolving, correct? Poaching was once an economy in large portions of the world. The human trade is probably the most infamous "economies" out there. Some economies need to die off because of the detriment they do to society. 

There is no such thing as "clean coal". Maybe, based upon the negative effects it has on the environment and the people that work in the industry we should seek out new industries to develop in this country that are not harmful to others.

Here are a few #takes as DJ would put them:

1. It's no surprised that a team as disappointing as the Browns could find a way to disappoint their fans in the off-season before the draft and free agency. But it goes beyond that... even the front page of CNN.com was mocking the Browns new logo last night.

2. Most of Deeyung Entertainment's ideas suck. Their theme seems to be, for the most part, go with a secondary color for the main color of the helmet and put an obnoxiously large logo on there. Hideous!

3. "Routed" by MSU? Ohio State lost by a Denzel Valentine 3-pointer with a few seconds left because Amir is lazy and didnt help defend a screen on Slam Thompson.

4. Charity isnt charity if you draw attention to yourself every time you do it. When Oprah builds a school but draws attention to herself for months saying "hey everybody look what i did!", that's not charity. Now, if people come and take pictures of you while your subtly doing charity work, that's a different story. Dolodale is doing it the right way and I love his tweets about the issue!

I think the concept is that the warmer the ocean waters get that will disrupt the normal flow of the great ocean conveyor belt which would result in dramatic cooling in parts of the world. So, I think a long term issue would be warming creating cooling which is why the term used more today is "climate change".

From the New England Aquarium:

In addition to wind and tides, ocean currents are driven by differences in water density. Dense cold salty water at the surface of the North Atlantic sinks and pushes currents through the deeper parts of the world’s oceans to Antarctica, then to the northeastern Pacific Ocean, where it rises to the surface, continues south and west past Indonesia, around Africa’s Cape of Good Hope and north through the South Atlantic and North Atlantic oceans. While it is on the surface, the current becomes steadily warmer and saltier by evaporation.

On the last part of its journey, it loops into the Gulf of Mexico, north along the edge of the continental shelf of eastern North America, then east to Europe where its heat and moisture warms countries from Great Britain to Norway. (This is why the U.K. and much of Europe are warmer than much of the U.S. even though these countries are at a higher latitude.) After releasing its heat into the atmosphere, the cooled but still salty water then flows east to Greenland and Newfoundland, where it sinks to begin another 1,000-year cycle of the great ocean conveyer belt.

Dramatic climate change can occur from the reduction of large-scale mixing of water — thermohaline circulation — throughout the ocean. Increased precipitation and widespread melting of ice caused by global warming could create a larger layer of fresh water that would slow or prevent normal thermohaline mixing and would affect the currents offshore from Greenland and Newfoundland.

I love how dumb people think if it's cold where they are then there is no global warming.

Yeah, 97% of all climate scientists are in on this "hoax" that climate change, or the exaggerated pace it is at now, is largely a contribution by man. That's logical! You can't get 97% of people to agree on anything except that SiSi should be Egypt's new president.

97% of people dont believe babies are and puppies are cute. We need to stop giving equal time and credit to the 3% of wackos out there that dont believe in climate change.

These new age kids with their fancy schools and getting out before 3pm. I dont like it!

Comment 23 Feb 2015

My point was the backside post was only open after Sims waited to long to hit the TE's inside post route... either one would have worked depending on when Sims throws the ball.

Comment 23 Feb 2015

Lobbyist.... but the good kind, not the bad kind that pays for political favors. The common man needs someone to lobby for him too.

Comment 23 Feb 2015

Truth is Kiffin should have been right on that play. 

As soon as that play started I saw the TE run his deep route and nobody was around him. All the Buckeyes on the short side of the field all sucked in to the line of scrimmage.

Had Blake Sims released the about about 1-1.5 seconds earlier Bama scores.

Comment 23 Feb 2015

I struggle with this as well, even though I was one of the ones that posted a "caption", and I agree with Nashville.

I'm not interested in publicly dogging a player for just not being good enough... what frustrates everyone about Amir though is his lack of effort (i.e. not even defending the Denzel Valentine screen against MSU).

Comment 23 Feb 2015

"Amir, while you receive a deep tissue massage from some dude I'll be blocking this shot. Oh, and eat my elbow for making me do your job!"

Comment 23 Feb 2015

This was also the loudest for me. I was there, section 13A if I remember correctly. When Will Allen intercepted that pass it was insanity! We ran onto the field at the end and dug up some of the turf. 

Comment 20 Feb 2015

I thought it was funny how the narrator said the word "unpredictable" just as they showed a picture of Luis Suarez.

They're basically saying, "yeah, we sponsor a biter".

Personally, I would hate if John Oliver took over The Daily Show. Last Week Tonight is one of the best shows on TV, seriously, and the structure of that show suits him. He can spend 17-18 minutes talking about an issue without having to deal with commercials, sponsors, and guests.

He just had an epic takedown of the tobacco industry on Sunday night...
