  1. The entire term "spanking" is subjective... A quick pop on the rear to get their attention or onto the hand when they are reaching for something dangerous is more about getting their attention and teaching them that what they are doing is unacceptable behavior... However, beating their ass with a switch or something like a belt is uncalled for, and could easily lead to all kinds of emotional issues. Honestly, we once tended to be a little too easy to react with a pop here or there with my own kids. But then, my oldest started preschool and had trouble keeping his hands to himself. It was a quick lesson to learn that you have to communicate with words and not physical actions, but I felt he was imitating something we were doing wrong with him. This was a lesson to us as well as to him. They'll still get a pop here or there if their attention needs to be gotten, but our conflict resolution now revolves around making sure they are listening to why what they are doing is unacceptable and achieving a better behavior by talking things out. Time out works. If it is elevated from time out, then it is standing at a door, facing the door. If it elevates from that they just get ignored until they learn to control their outbursts. For the most part, it is easy now. Spanking or lashing out physically is the easy route. Talking about it and coming to a resolution together is a the better one, especially when you want to teach and encourage acceptable social interaction moving forward.
  2. They could always extend the draft past the 7th round and allow teams to pick up these guys that they don't want to spend one of their earlier picks on.
  3. This... It is called tact. I highly doubt if it went any other way, in which some of you are alluding to, that this involves the Panthers. We are a classy organization that would more likely offer up the lines above rather than flat out telling people that they weren't going to be drafted but we wanted them to sign with us.
  4. Steve Smith's Prom Date

    I posted about it when it came out that it was going to happen Nobody really gets vocal about Smitty here anymore unless it is to trash him. But it is always good to see the good things he does rather than the character many still project him to be.

    I thought Ramsay and Roose brought up his death while conversing this week? IIRC something along the lines of finding his body, didn't know who had killed him, etc.

    I really think it was just her sacrificing herself so that Jon might live. I can't wait until Sunday. I hope they don't string this along for several episodes.

    There is also a theory circulating amongst fans that Mel is going to just use magic to make herself look like Jon to scare the ever loving poo out of everyone in the Night's Watch and rally them to her cause, and that real Jon is indeed dead... I'm not a fan of that theory though... it would kind of be lame... The real Jon resurrection would have the same effect...

    That was kind of my thoughts as well... Our last scene may very well be them hammering on the door with the axe, Wun Wun bursting through the door of Castle Black with a bunch of wildlings that Edd has brought back, and Jon's eyes opening... Roll credits...

    I am surprised nobody on the 'net is really talking about this part, but I noticed something immediately with the Melisandre scene that I think is important. If you go back and rewatch the scene, Mel is sitting by the fire. She has a solemn look and is rubbing her hand (as if feeling her skin or being cold.) If you think back, she has never shown any feeling towards the cold, and I feel like I remember her specifically remarking on how the fire of R'hllor within her was all she needed to keep warm. Immediately after this, and this is what I think has been missed and is pretty important, she looks over to the tale. There are rays of sunlight coming through the window, shining through the candle on the table, and illuminating the mirror. I think with everything that happened, Mel was losing her faith. She sat by the fire gazing into it hoping for a sign, and got none. She then felt the cold and looked to the table, where she indeed got her sign. She was being told by her lord to go to the mirror and reveal her true self. She was being humbled. That said, I wonder if this means she is or has already sacrificed herself. She never sleeps, and I think this was a clear sign that she was going to go to sleep. In essence, I think this means she has died so that Jon can live. It was a last act of faith, driven by a sign from her lord. I think it will work, and I think we will see Jon wake up by the end of the next episode.

    Well, things in Dorne progressed fast... Didn't see that coming. I'm pretty sure Mel is sacrificing herself for Jon, or either simply giving up. It looked like she took the light shining on the mirror as some kind of sign though.
  11. Josh Norman to Redskins or 49ers by Friday

    8 hours and 30 minutes left on Friday, and Norman is still an UFA. So you're telling me there's a chance?!?!?!? Edit: I can't tell time
  12. Metal Music favorites

    In case you didn't know, The Sword has songs about Game of Thrones stuff... I wouldn't care what the music sounded like (I think it is great actually, and have loved them for a while,) this gives them cred. lol

    It can be about the money. That is fine. But if it is about the money, don't try to represent it like it isn't about the money. Like I said, I would love to have the problem of taking 9-10 million instead of 13-16 million. But I wouldn't lie to my coworkers, employers, and myself and act like I don't care about the money and say it is about respect or some other such nonsense.
  14. Matt Ryan is stopping Julio.
  15. did Norman sign somewhere else yet?
