  1. Active shooter at Planned Parenthood in Colorado

    So the guy goes into a PP and starts shooting people. Up to 11 civilians wounded, 2 dead, officers wounded not included in that number.  So, yeah, I'll throw it out there the right wing fabrications and rhetoric regarding funding of abortions through PP had something to do with this. 
  2. SQUAD

    Yeah, you're right... who was I thinking of? 
  3. SQUAD

    Dude was in Philly for a few years...give him a break....
  4. Not sure.... a black QB who likes to celebrate won't add any fans from the rich, old and white football fans. Kinda like a certain important figure who lives in DC....
  5. Phil Simms

    He spent the first 10 minutes of Inside the NFL on Showtime giving nothing but positive props and love to Cam and the Panthers. As much of a Brady and Romo knob-slobberers as he and Nance both are, they were actually pretty fair.   But with 7 minutes left in the 3rd Q, Nance did say, "And it's only a 3-score game!"
  6. Props to Oher

    Likely the most underrated FA signing of the year.
  7. Does anyone have any advice for a future teacher

    It's good to want to make a career of something you actually enjoy doing. So, why not make the best of it and not only do what you want, but get paid what you want and do it in a place you'd love to live? Great, you want to be a teacher! Now, where would be your ideal place in the entire world to live? Next, can you afford to live and work in your ideal place?  There, you have it. Don't be afraid to go elsewhere and explore. Most people don't have the luxury of doing something they truly love for a living. It's a means to and end. But as long as you believe this is your calling and your dream job, there's no reason you shouldn't do it in a dream location.    
  8. Worldwide Travel Alert

    And airline ticket prices are down.  Flying my sister out from California next week for a few days- round trip less than $350.  Got my tickets for my January vacation to the Caribbean- round trips less than $300 each.  Fug 'em- carry on with life because doing anything less is letting them win. 
  9. Regardless of what the PD was trying to do, my point is why none of the protests started until now when the mere fact that a shooting took place over a year ago, was widely reported at that time and the simple fact that 16 rounds were fired at the kid would be more than enough to protest and demand answers. So why wait for the video? Why wait for a year? We knew a fugging year ago a kid was killed by the cops with 16 rounds and now, because the video is out, is the time to protest? And yes, I get all that about the PD and I wouldn't expect anything less from them. But despite their best efforts, the fact remains that a year ago 16 rounds were used to kill a kid. Who cares what evidence they tried to destroy or purge when 16 rounds is enough for me to start asking serious questions. Yes, the system is completely broken, but the fact remains that the only difference between yesterday and October 20, 2014 is a video of the incident was released. 
  10. I'm just wondering how this is now a huge protest issue, complete with "marching in the streets" and the usual posturing when the incident took place in October 2014? I mean, it was reported, made the news, newspapers, etc. and it was known over a year ago the kid was shot 16 times. But only now that a video was released do people want to act like a huge injustice has occurred. Where were these people protesting and demanding answers a fugging year ago when it was known then the cop popped 16 rounds into this kid? Nothing like coming late to the party.
  11. What Really Pisses ISIS Off

    Those damn Christmas commercials and decorations going up before Thanksgiving.
  12. HVAC Question

    The temperature the unit(s) are trying to maintain is measured at the thermostat, not in the closed up Dutch oven you're creating in the bedrooms. If the temperature around the t-stats fluctuates, the units are continually working. With your doors closed, your body heat is adding to the temp while the units are adding more warm air to the room.   But, although that's a factor, it sounds as though it's only part of the problem. Sounds to me like a capacitor has gone bad. You say the unit is always running, but I'm guessing the fan is running, not necessarily the entire unit. If you hear the fan running, but there is no air coming through the vents, it's a capacitor. If the unit is running continuously and pushing warm air through the vents, it could be a bad t-stat telling the unit to keep running or a bad capacitor. When you say the unit is running and the temps are already very warm in the house, what temp does the t-stat display? Again, if the air temp at the t-stat is 65 (example) it doesn't matter what the rest of the house is, the t-stat is telling the unit it's not warm enough if you've got it set to 68 (example). You have programmable t-stats. Do not turn off your heat at night or at any other time. Simply raise or lower the t-stat temps. Rather than turn off the upstairs heat, simply turn down the temp to 55-60. Turning on and off an HVAC unit (older than 6 or so years) spins up your electric meter and run your electricity bill higher than turning the t-stat down.
  13. Princeton students takeover President's office

    Princeton President: "Hi there. I'm assuming all of you have paid your tuition (approximately $42k per year)? You have? Good. The answer to your demands is "no" and if you're not happy with that please feel free to transfer to another school."

    Wait, was this Arsen or Donald Trump?
