Rules Question

14 September 2014 - 05:11 PM

Noticed late in the second quarter while we were on offense that the defense had an illegal hands to the face for 5 yards that I believe was declined.

The next play our team had an illegal hands to the face for 10 yards.

Why is it different for offense and defense?

Does this irk anybody else?

So I was reading an article about Dan Orlovsky saying that being an NFL quarterback is a 24/7/365 job.

I've felt for years that the saying 24/7/365 is stupid and the fact it is so widely accepted is astounding to me.

The saying should be 24/7/52. Because there are 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week, and then 52 weeks in a year. It makes no sense to say there are 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week, and 365 days in a year. You are using the days portion (speaking in increments of time measurement) kind of redundantly when used twice in this way.

Done correctly it should go up to the next unit of measurement. 24/7/52.

Yes this is a rambling of a crazy person, but this needed to be said.

Should parents of multiple children pay more in taxes instead of less?

17 June 2014 - 12:22 PM

So my coworker and I happened to be talking about tax returns, and he mentioned about how he gets a pretty substantial return each year. He has five kids.

I was telling him how I have a bit taken out each check but with itemized deductions (mortgage interest, property taxes, etc.) I try to make it so I owe the IRS $1 or they owe me $1. I have a daughter, but her mother claims her so as far as the IRS is concerned, I have no children.

I was just wondering, if he has 5 kids, all in public schools, why does he get his whole check and I have to pay for them to go to school? Seems like the government should allow you two kids for free, and after that you are just burdening society and it's limited resources, and should pay accordingly.

He does just fine and this isn't a thread to try and burden the poor or anything like that, I'm just curious if I'm the only one who feels this way?

Those people on TV with 19 kids should be paying an extra $150,000 per year in taxes for excessive breeding.

According to Ian Rappaport via Twitter. I don't know how to twitter link if anyone can help me out.

Anyone think he's worth that? Or is this the beginning of the end of the 49ers NFC dominance (outside of Seattle)?

Would The US Constitution be signed today?

I was talking with a buddy about how the USA is in the sh!tter because dems and republicans won't get anything done seemingly to spite the other party, and I wondered;

Would the US Constitution be signed by the powers that be that we have today?

Now obviously for the sake of discussion we need to ignore the space-time aspects of our government wouldn't be here without the current constitution as well as other obvious impossibilities, but for a document that we base our whole way of life on, would there be a snowballs chance in hell of it being signed by congress by the fickle group of politicians we have in office today??
