/dev/random / Hurricane Harvey
« on: August 25, 2017, 09:08:29 PM »
I pray for the people who are and will be affected by this storm.  The Hurricane has made landfall now and it was a Cat 4, packing winds of 135 with gust to 160.  The winds will be very destructive but the possible 30 inches of rain could be even worse.  :raincloud:

Let's start this off with a big  :grrrr: :frustration: :WTF: :raincloud:

The Gators will be without 7, including Antonio Callaway, for season opener vs. Michigan
http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/20333740/the-florida-gators-suspended-seven-players-september-2-opener-vs-michigan-wolverines

Callaway has great talent, but this kid has some serious discipline issues.  He has been suspended a couple of times before and he just doesn't learn.  He has NFL talent, but I doubt NFL teams will draft him with his current and past issues.

The game against Michigan was going to be tough to win anyway, now I see Michigan winning big.  :raincloud:

/dev/random / 2016 NFL Draft
« on: May 01, 2016, 07:00:37 AM »
Now that the draft is over, tell me how you think your team did with their picks.

Tampa Bay had these picks
1 - Vernon Hargreaves III    CB   Florida            (1st Round)
2 - Noah Spence   OLB   Eastern Kentucky        (2nd Round)
3 - Roberto Aguayo   PK   Florida State             (2nd Round)
4 - Ryan Smith   CB   North Carolina Central     (4th Round)
5 - Caleb Benenoch   OT   UCLA                        (5th Round)
6 - Devante Bond   OLB   Oklahoma                  (6th Round)
7 - Dan Vitale   FB   Northwestern                     (6th Round)

The Bucs needed a pass rusher, secondary, and O-line

Aguayo is a good kicker, but I question using a 2nd round pick on a kicker  :dohdohdoh:
The Bucs did not get a pass rusher, but maybe there was not a good one available when they picked.
Right now I would give them a "B", but it really counts when we see them on the field.

Politics / Does pouring money into blighted areas really work.
« on: June 03, 2014, 05:41:29 AM »
Here is an article about revitalizing a high crime area by building a new shopping area there.
In this particular article they are talking about Pine Hills, everyone refers to it a Crime Hills.

http://www.mynews13.com/content/news/cfnews13/news/article.html/content/news/articles/cfn/2014/6/2/renderings_of_propos.html

I would love to see how often doing these sort of things actually work and how often they turn out to be a large waste of money.

The developer may be getting a chunk of federal money to build there.  No matter where the money comes from, I think it is a waste.
If some of the money is coming from my tax dollars, that upsets me more. 

You cannot just put up some new shopping mall and make everything better.  The people have to change for real change to happen.

Thoughts ?

Politics / Al-Jazeera Network coming to a TV near you.
« on: October 26, 2013, 06:34:39 PM »
http://www.broadcastingcable.com/article/496201-Al_Jazeera_America_to_Launch_on_TWC_and_Bright_House.php?rssid=20065

Al-Jazeera will soon be available in 55 million homes in the US. 
I have never watched Al-Jazeera so I am not sure how I should feel about this.  Call it racism, but my initial feelings are negative about this.

I'm feeling kinda female today, I'm going to use the girls locker room.
I wish I could have tried that when I was in high school.

If a self proclaimed transgender goes in the girls locker room and gets wood, is it in the proper locker room  :?:

Politics / National Security Admin - Data Collection
« on: June 08, 2013, 08:02:47 AM »
This is from an article I saw today.

The National Security Agency has been collecting the phone records of hundreds of millions of Americans each day, creating a database through which it can learn whether terror suspects have been in contact with people in the U.S. It also was disclosed this week that the NSA has been gathering all Internet usage audio, video, photographs, emails and searches from nine major U.S. Internet providers, including Microsoft and Google, in hopes of detecting suspicious behavior that begins overseas.

"Nobody is listening to your telephone calls," Obama assured the nation after two days of reports that many found unsettling. What the government is doing, he said, is digesting phone numbers and the durations of calls, seeking links that might "identify potential leads with respect to folks who might engage in terrorism."

If there's a hit, he said, "if the intelligence community then actually wants to listen to a phone call, they've got to go back to a federal judge, just like they would in a criminal investigation."

/dev/random / What exceeds Inexorably Palaverous ?

As Foc prepares to hit the 9,000 post count, what title will Quads bestow upon him  :?:

I'm sure it will be good, I doubt it will ever exceed the title Vae holds - (i was -1 because you fucking suck)  :bananaw00t:
