The article was definitely well written - it was the content that bothered me. Not that it really matters but I have no issue with you linking to the story.

I honestly look forward to what you decide to link to each Skull Session. You put together an interesting mix of content. Thank you for that, sir.

Bull fighting is bad, actually. It's not an impressive feat when you realize how the animals are prepared for the events - often drugged, Vaseline over their eyes so they are partially blinded, noses and ears stuffed with newspaper or cotton to limit senses of smell and sound. I'm not a PETA guy by any stretch of imagination, but bull fighting is awful.

Does he bleach himself? That is one strangely white individual.

I am an educated individual but I still am completely befuddled at the body's ability to heal itself. 

I smashed my ring finger a few years ago between two extruded aluminum beams while working. It hurt like hell and the baby I am - I thought I would lose my finger. I get to the urgent care, almost vomiting a handful of times from looking at my bloody fingers too many times.

Fast forward about an hour, the doc looks at the X-ray, gives me something for the pain, cleans up the blood and sends me home with a broken finger. A week later I come back and the finger is already halfway repaired. A month or so later the finger is 90% back to normal. 

I go from thinking that sucker was gone to a month later - business as usual. The human body is an amazing thing. 

Edit - grammar

Estaban Weaver was the best basketball player I've ever seen in person at any level and I. Period. I've told the story on here before but ... I watched one of his practices when he was in high school and he threw an alley oop to himself off of the side wall of the gym. Like above the pushed in bleachers. Too bad the kid had such a problem keeping it together.

In terms of straight up numbers, it's harder to win the CFB championship than men's basketball. Only 4 teams have a shot to win football. 64ish have a chance to win basketball. 

Edit: depends on your starting point. assuming the starting point is being a team in the playoff, it's easier to win football 1 in 4 chance versus 1 in 64ish for basketball.

I work for one of the large clothing retailers in town as a merchandise planner. My job: educated guessing. 

Pretty good gig. Studied marketing and logistics at OSU but developed a talent for being a decent guesser. 

My my advice to you undergrads who aren't sure what you'd like to do: develop a talent/above average capability in MS Excel.
