Without telling you my profession, I assure you that I am under more scrutiny every day than what any professional football player is. Not everyone knows who they are but when I walk in the world people know exactly who I am.

Good business is putting yourself in situations to succeed, not skirt the law. He should have been explaining this fish bowl, not telling people how to do what you want to do and avoid the ramifications for those actions.

If that's the way he meant it then why did he offer apologies on Twitter? Try not to see everything through Scarlett and Gray glasses.

Ive lost a lot of respect for Carter. Now I know why Spielman was so critical of him when they discussed Carter's collegiate infractions and now I know why his son has struggled so greatly in his young life. If these are the type of life lessons he has to offer....

DT and Receiver are our biggest question marks.

I'd go with Hankins or another and at Receiver, I'd say Gonzalez.

Don't feel like getting worked up over other peoples ignorance so I did not read through this thread. I wanted to offer a recommendation to the originator. The Smith M+P has quite a few major flaws, primarily during an emergency reload the slide will sometimes drop on its own. This would be fine if the weapon always loaded a round into the chamber. This is not always the case and we put this through much trial and error and duplicated the results on many occasions. Smith And Wesson is working with "Us" to remedy this malfunction. I don't feel like we should have to play the role of engineer with this world renowned company. The shield had a recall on it some years ago but I can't remember what the malfunction was and if they have all been fixed. I would look at a Glock. It's tactical and tried and true. It isn't my personal favorite (I like Sig and H+K) but for the price and dependability you can't go wrong. If you want to further this conversation, please reply to the post. I don't want to read some of the comments on here.

Funny yet a lot of truth in what he's saying. Dad Bod is all about the women that prefer them feeling more comfortable and secure. Who wants a relationship based off of insecurity and self interest? Anyhow, I  don't share all of his views on the subject but they are thought provoking even though in jest.

Maybe I'm not sympathetic enough or maybe I am just ignorant about the way the human brain operates but for all of our bad choices in life that we can make, has there got to be a disease for that choice? Lieung is now a disease? I just can't stomach that. (Last link)

Edit* talk and text butchered that one. Sorry

I too was born in Chillicothe. Moved around a lot but considered Circleville my home. Currently living in Alabama. Miss home everyday but nothing puts a smile on my face like seeing Cincinnati when I come over the hills on 71 approaching the river. I get a sense of peace when coming home. Passing King's Island always brings back pleasant memories too. Joining the corps and my current profession keep me from returning. Maybe when I retire. Who knows.

I didn't mind him being here. What disturbed me was the amount of upvotes he tended to receive. There are a lot of dirty Buckeyes out there.

Correct on all accounts. A very valuable weapon. I think he shows room for improvement in his intermediate range and ability to catch the ball. On the deep threat, he is less likely to take a big hit but I think that messes with his head between 10-20 yards. Over the years he has had many drops in that range, or at least drops that were not typical of abilities.

That would have made me angry too, but I am going to look at this from the business' point of view here. You didn't recognize the issue when you intially took possession of the room. You went to eat to unwind for the night, which I imagine took approximately one to two hours. I can think of many uses for a room during that span of a time and a lot of junkies/hookers could use your reasoning to get a "One and done". Granted, I understand you were with your family and not your mistress but I see both sides here.

The silence! Had Bama won I would endure a lot of conversations about football and have to talk about all the glories of Alabama since I live in Bama. Oddly, unlike previous years, no one is talking college football with me right now. I get the occasional congratulations but then they quickly change the subject. The day after we beat Bama I wore every bit of Buckeye apparel I owned all around town and went shopping for everything I had put off buying in that last month. The Bamanites had murder in their eyes. Luckily I have the frame that dissuades such actions! The silence is glorious!
