  1. There is a theory floating around that Euron hired a faceless man to kill Balon, possibly using the dragon egg he found as payment
  2. There were 82 replies on the 2013 NASCAR Chase thread There are 140 replies on the summer transfer thread (nothing to do with the World Cup), and most transfers dont even happen until August
  3. UNC Academic Scandal

    What do you want to know? Its the same scandal we already know about, only this time its a basketball player taking the classes. So a basketball player majoring in AFAM took one of the "paper classes" in the AFAM department, shocking, I know. Of course, the NCAA didnt care about these fake classes during their last investigation, so I have a hard time believing they will do anything this time around. It was declared an academic issue rather than an athletic issue because those classes were available to and taken by normal students as well as athletes. We can get into the reasons the NCAA takes this sort of position on situations like this, but despite what some people would like to think it has less to do with a bias towards major athletic programs like UNC and more to do with the limits of the NCAA's jurisdiction (the NCAA doesnt want to start a precedent of setting academic standards for its member universities).
  4. UNC Academic Scandal

    Considering there is nothing new here and the NCAA has already investigated this very issue, I'm guessing the NCAA wont bother
  5. UNC Academic Scandal

    So the only thing the NCAA punished UNC for academically was the one tutor, not the AFAM classes
  6. UNC Academic Scandal

    Got a link to that? Genuinely curious. I think Roy probably did what most people do in that situation, turn a blind eye and dont go digging into the matter
  7. UNC Academic Scandal

    I'm pretty sure everyone knew that football and basketball players (as well as athletes in other sports) took these paper classes. The NCAA never punished the school for it though because some non-athletes took the classes too. Football team only got punished for the connections to agents, so I'm not seeing anything new here. Correct me if I'm wrong bigcatdaddy, I know you've been masturbating to following this story very closely the last few years
  8. UNC Academic Scandal

    Was he though? I thought the article said he was going to be ineligible but took some summer "classes" to maintain eligibility. Not really anything new here, we knew UNC had fake classes to keep athletes eligible that frankly had no business being in college. If they can show that Roy knew what was going on that would be pretty damaging, but a guy in his position isn't going to dig too deep into stuff like this and just let the advisors and tutors take care of it
  9. New TWOW chapter released today, from Arya's perspective so it wont spoil any other storylines http://www.georgerrmartin.com/excerpt-from-the-winds-of-winter/
  10. Speaking of crazy conspiracy theories- this one might be my favorite so far Oh god it almost makes too much sense! Why does he leach his skin all the time? Hes simply helping maintain the blood flow to keep his new skin alive. Which of course means the flayed man of house Bolton, is Roose himself
  11. Not gonna lie, the "Tree guy is turning Bran evil" theory makes a lot of sense when presented like that. Why else would Coldhands be helping them? (Not to mention all the shady poo he was doing on their journey up there). But if you buy into the idea that Bran is eating Jojen's blood, then are the Cranogmen in on the plan to use Bran? They started making the paste a while ago, and Meera was the one who always made it
  12. I finished the books last week (and just read through this thread), so fug it imma bump this poo. To add some speculation of my own- I think Dany finding herself stranded out in the Dothraki Sea is going to finally change her into the person we've always wanted her to be. She realizes that Mereen will never change, and that it is not her home. More importantly, she realizes that "Dragons plant no trees," and that she is finally going to accept that she is a Targaryen and finally unleash those motherfuging dragons. But I feel like shes going to waste some time with that khalisar she just ran in to, and Victarion is going to come in and use that dragon horn to control her other dragons. Setting up a MOTHERfugING DRAGON FIGHT between Drogon and those two bitch dragons Okay maybe thats just my hope
  13. It's gone snow.

    Yeah, this snow is really powdery! I've never seen snow like this around here, we always get really wet snow
  14. Most sea ice ever recorded

    per year Yeah, there is a great deal of uncertainty in those numbers. Its hard to isolate where all the polar ice melt is coming from (very difficult and expensive to do surveys in antarctica), but we know its happening because sea level continues to rise. I never claimed to be a genius Couple of differences between sea ice that forms at the north pole and around the edges of antarctica and the continental ice sheets on Greenland and Antarctica. Sea ice is typically less than 5 meters thick, and since it is floating it doesnt actually cause sea level to rise when it melts. The continental ice sheets on the other hand, can be well over 1000 m thick, and when it melts it causes sea level to rise. To compare- if all the sea ice melts, there will be no change in sea level. If the entire Antarctic ice sheet melts, global sea level would rise 70 m. I mean, sea ice matters to some extent as its a good indication of the climate around the poles. But you know what does a better job at showing global temperature changes? Thermometers
  15. Most sea ice ever recorded

    I dont have access, but the abstract is quite easy to read (and summarizes the findings of the paper as abstracts tend to do). There was a small decline in antarctic ice sheet volume (I found that out by adding numbers together, I can show you how if you would like) and a major decline in the volume of the Greenland ice sheet. Please enlighten me- what does that german article say about the volume of ice?
