    So what if each cop says the other had nothing to do with it? Because that's usually how it goes.
  2. And still, these were coming regardless, because even at the $7.xx slave wage, robots are still cheaper. Companies will just use the min. wage as an excuse and to save face, just like they do when laying off people in changes that were in the pipeline for years. No way around it. The real question is, how do we, as a country, handle the fact that low-wage jobs will be going away? Not everyone can have a normal white collar job, what do we do when those jobs are all filled, since you have to work till you die now?

    I feel the people that don't understand what Biz brought are the same people that thought since Tim Duncan would settle for a bank-shot instead of a flashy dunk he wasn't worth mentioning in the list of top players.

    Yeah mostly that's what I said in the post (scenarios) , but I would say law of averages is most people will want to get one if house has some age and definitely septic tank.

    Biz would have had his best season ever, this season. Kemba came into his own, Batum came in, and we learned there was a 3-point line. He would have had more opportunities. I think he easily scores at least 10 points a game on top of his rebounding and blocks and overall defense. Lee struggled to get that. The fact is, this team is SOFT. We went into the season with the black hole of defense (Al), Zeller (soft and weak), Hawes (soft as they come), and Hansborogh (at least not soft, but doesn't do much else, even less than Biz). It was a terrible plan, especially when MKG went down. Lee came in and had some good offense but let's get carried away, he barely did more than Biz would on offense most of the year. Marvin in the playoffs had some games where Biz would have outscored him too. Biz's toughness and energy would have been much welcomed on this team in the playoffs. And stop using the fact Clifford played Maxill over him as a point. That was stupid and everyone knew it and Clifford was just being stupid as always with vets over young guys.
  7. Honestly, it's just as distracting as alcohol with a lot of people, but it is a slippery slope. I would call screaming kids in the back seat, and trying to feed them or split them up, etc, just as bad as well. What about fiddling on the radio? What about talking on the phone itself? I know you aren't even supposed to talk in some states though. Then, of course the fact that Americans are getting less and less sleep are always tired while driving just means more problems. We just need computers handling all the cars but people will fight that too.
  8. Not sure, the US Gov has been overthrowing leaders and appointing new ones for decades and we hardly hear about it. Also you know, JFK and MLK......
  9. Preacher starts tonight

    Don't waste your time. True Blood had like 1-2 good seasons and I'm not sure I kept wasting my time on it, probably because of Jessica. Anyway, Outcast is a good show too coming on Cinemax (at least the pilot was). Officially not out till June 3rd but it's OUT THERE. It's also filmed in Rock Hill, so that's cool.
  10. HVAC question

    Who ever would? It's never a good idea to buy a house without inspection and find out about termites afterwards that cost thousands to fix. I guess if you were getting a ridiculous deal and took into account there could be repairs, sure. Or maybe if the house has just been built or not long before. But any house that's been standing for some time, should be inspected.
  11. HVAC question

    Ah, I see what you are saying. Sadly, some people really do opt out of inspections and don't want to pay the money. Silly when you think about it.
  12. HVAC question

    The people who bought your house had a bad realtor if they let them buy it without an inspection. Sadly, there are quite a bit of them out there.
  13. One Man's Trash Is Another Man's Treasure

    This is not factual, and in fact, there are threads stating the fact that "everyone" was indeed NOT calling him a bust and didn't care.
  14. HVAC question

    No one buys a house "as is" unless it's a foreclosure though. They would completely stupid NOT to hire an inspector and as far as they know, he knows what he's talking about, so it's not really their fault either. Khyber had the best idea, and one that is used pretty often in negotiations for many things, just pay $250 of closing costs or something and they can do it themselves if they want.
