according to your transitive property of football wins we're a better team than you because we beat the patriots at the last second while you utterly failed. and preemptively, don't start bleating about the no-call on pass interference after the saints were gifted a barfy dogshit RTP call against breesus christ as an excuse.
you may now continue to fuck the hole in your couch or jerk off to animal planet or whatever you do in your spare time
Well actually Panthers lost to Bills and Card, two teams Saints not only beat, but completely dominated. Panthers beat Pats on final play of winning drive, Saints didn't realize they could just grab and bear hug receiver before ball got there for the win. So you had one play better than Saints where holding wasn't called against Pats, while Saints beat two teams the won over Panthers
So if your looking at tiebreakers,
Record against common opponents favors Saints. FAIL! And fail using your own argument too! Ouch.
"If we don't have your respect before the game, we're going to get it from you afterwards," Mitchell said as he looked ahead to Monday night's showdown against New England. "Teams have slept on us earlier in the year. You seen the turnovers we're getting. You've seen the yards we're allowing.
"That's not by accident. We've been doing this since … training camp. It's no way you can call it a fluke."
The numbers don't lie. Carolina ranks fourth in the NFL against the pass, allowing 201.3 yards a game. But that often gets overlooked by the run defense ranked No. 2 and the players up front making sacks.
"They're never going to give us credit for what we're doing," Munnerlyn said. "I feel like we're the best secondary in the NFL. We're No. 4 right now in pass defense, but they're never going to give us credit because we don't have those top name guys other guys have."
Here are passing offenses faced by "best secondary in NFL". Lol
Seattle 24th - LOST
Buffalo 29th - LOST
Arizona 19th - LOST
St Louis 20th
Tampa Bay 30th
Atlanta 6th (without its best receiver only had 6 incomplete passes, only two bc of secondary, front seven had other 4)
In contrast, Saints faced 6th ranked ATL with a fully loaded offense, 8th Chicago away and with Cutler, 13th Dallas and 19th Cardinals who they completely shut down an embarrassed. Both secondaries have 9 INTs and Saints is also a bunch of unknown players.
So facing tougher Passing offenses, the 3rd ranked Saints Passing Defense is just carrying on like they have been there before, meanwhile, the 4th ranked Panthers Passing Defense has one of its more average players begging for respect and claiming to be the best while facing easier competition. So it seems the players are just as delusional as the fans.
I saw this on Smithsonian, here is the story and making it even more uncomfortable for Cowboy fans as it points put similiar populations around Dallas
Erick Reis, a 20-year-old web designer in Santo Antonio da Platina, a town about 250 miles west of Sao Paulo, captured the striking video that has since accumulated more than 2 million YouTube views over the course of the week. “I was shooting an engagement party for some friends of mine and I saw the spiders when I was leaving, now in the late afternoon,” he explained to TV450000, which posted the video. “I’ve never seen anything like it before.”
According to biologist Marta Fischer of the Pontifical Catholic University of Parana, however, the phenomenon is not so strange. ”This type of spider is known to be quite social,” she said. “They are usually in trees during the day and in the late afternoon and early evening construct sort of giant sheets of webs, in order to trap insects.”
Scientists have described around 40,000 species of spiders around the world, but only a handful of them are social. These 23 species are scattered around the world and sometimes swarm, like ants or bees. Females often outnumber males 10 to 1 in colonies that can exceed 50,000 individuals.
Around Sao Paulo and its neighboring cities, she said, it’s not an unusual site to see a sky speckled by spiders. The species, Anelosimus eximius, can be found from Panama to Argentina and lives in colonies sometimes comprised of thousands of individuals. Each spider is around the size of a pencil eraser. As Examiner reports, the species’ webs can stretch from the ground up to tree canopies or human constructions 65 feet high.
If strong winds come along, the web may detach from its anchors, carrying the spiders and their ruined home to new sites where they appear to “rain down.” Catching rides on the wind–en mass–was likely what happened in Santo Antonio da Platina. While the humans gawked below, the flustered spiders were simply trying to pull themselves together after an unexpected journey from some forest or park.
Before North American readers breathe a sigh of relief that this isn’t happening a bit closer to home, however, it’s worth noting that similar colonies live in Texas. In Lake Tawakoni State Park, just east of Dallas, Guatemalan long-jawed spiders construct enormous webs covering up to 600 foot stretches. The spiders build the huge webs in less than two weeks. Researchers think the spiders achieve such sudden engineering feats thanks to their “remarkable reproductive capabilities and ability to disperse by ballooning,” according to A Field Guide of Scorpions and Spiders of Texas.
So far, Dallas residents haven’t reported massive sheets of webs and their arachnid residents “ballooning” into backyards. But, as witnessed by residents of Santo Antonio da Platina, stranger things have happened.
Looks like a Rogue is at dead bottom of owner satisfaction survey, also, below is the exact breakdown of reliability issues and those ares are not too bad, engine cooling and fuel system. On the ratings page with pros and cons, it had an alternative section that mentioned that Mazda CX5 as a good alternative again,
Looks like Escape rated higher overall with better owner satisfaction although Nissan had slightly higher reliability, but not huge difference, I pulled a side by side comparison on your two and 3 others from top rated, just going by ratings, the Forester is highest rated by a lot with Mazda CX5 up a top also with both getting the "recommended buy" designation. The Mazda looks very close to the two you are looking at, and with much better ratings, and almost two whole seconds faster 0-60, it may be worth a test drive. Also, if you wait just a few weeks, you should he able to get 2013 models at a discount when 2014 models arrive very soon. Hope that helps.
Here are two articles about it, definitely not something you should be using, it was being developed originally as a pesticide!
Think twice before dumping that Splenda into your coffee…
The safety rating of the little yellow packet has gone from “safe” to “caution.” But it wasn’t the FDA who finally spoke up. Another agency has stepped in.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) downgraded Splenda’s safety rating because of a new discovery. We’re shocked that it took a “new discovery” to sound the alarms. But it’s better than nothing.
The Food and Drug Administration approved Splenda–sucralose—in 1998. Since then, it’s come under a ton of scrutiny. And for good reason.
Manufacturers created Splenda because everyone finally realized that other artificial sweeteners are dangerous. But what was the point? Splenda actually has more of a toxic chemical—chlorine—than even aspartame.1 Yet aspartame has an “avoid” rating.2
Another quote: Gross but true… Sucralose (Splenda) was actually discovered by researchers while trying to create a new insecticide. You will find Splenda in numerous consumer products. Make sure to check labels for sucralose. Not to be confused with sucrose, actual table sugar. Products that include Splenda are some Arizona Iced teas, some diet sodas, Diet V8 Splash, Gatorade, Ocean Spray juices, Tropicana juices, and even Breyers ice cream.
Splenda is not as harmless as McNeil wants you to believe. A mixture of sucralose, maltodextrine and dextrose (a detrimental simple sugar), each of the not-so-splendid Splenda ingredients has downfalls. Aside from the fact that it really isn’t “sugar and calorie free,” here is one big reason to avoid the deceitful mix…Think April fools day:
Splenda contains a potential poison
Splenda contains the drug sucralose. This chemical is 600 times sweeter than sugar. To make sucralose, chlorine is used. Chlorine has a split personality. It can be harmless or it can be life threatening.
In combo with sodium, chlorine forms a harmless “ionic bond” to yield table salt. Sucralose makers often highlight this worthless fact to defend its’ safety. Apparently, they missed the second day of Chemistry 101 – the day they teach “covalent” bonds.
When used with carbon, the chlorine atom in sucralose forms a “covalent” bond. The end result is the historically deadly “organochlorine” or simply: a Really-Nasty Form of Chlorine (RNFOC).
Unlike ionic bonds, covalently bound chlorine atoms are a big no-no for the human body. They yield insecticides, pesticides, and herbicides – not something you want in the lunch box of your precious child. It’s therefore no surprise that the originators of sucralose, chemists Hough and Phadnis, were attempting to design new insecticides when they discovered it! It wasn’t until the young Phadnis accidentally tasted his new “insecticide” that he learned it was sweet. And because sugars are more profitable than insecticides, the whole insecticide idea got canned and a new sweetener called Splenda got packaged.
To hide its dirty origin, Splenda pushers assert that sucralose is “made from sugar so it tastes like sugar.” Sucralose is as close to sugar as Windex is to ocean water.
