#2294297 Life-Expectancy Shortest in Southern "Poverty Belt"

Posted by Delhommey on 21 July 2013 - 08:53 AM

From the article you linked.


Yea, because no other church teaches against using tobacco or alcohol, or drugs.

Perhaps southerners don't follow the teachings of the church close enough. :)

IMO, the issues with health in the south are mostly due to diet and lack of exercise, religion has little or nothing to do with it.


Um, from the same article:

Other religious groups who follow these practices rank with Mormons as some of the healthiest Americans, Enstrom said. "But Mormons form a really good model because there's a large number who are really adhering to this [doctrine]," he said.


Reminds me of the joke:

How can you tell someone's not Southern Baptist?

They'll say hello to you in the liquor store.

And personally I don't think religion directly leads to health issues. It assists the feudalistic tendencies that ensure poverty and poor education for a large chunk of citizentry which do lead to health issues.

I also don't think using pictures of bloody victims is appropriate either, but I posted those to make a point. Those other magazines, that all of you are saying, "well they printed covers of Tsarnev too" at least presented both sides.

I think also for all of you saying this is false outrage, if you'll look back at comments I made after the Boston bombings and the Colorado theater shooting that I criticised both print and TV media for their coverage of the accused, but don't let that stop your mocking.

My point stands, your righteous indignation is fine, but no one else's is...

This isn't a discussion. People like delhommey and Cantrell don't want discussion, they want to see who can yell the loudest to shout down every dissenting opinion.

Have at it...


What about "You guys just don't get it and I can't explain it to you" encourages discussion?

But seriously the reason the Southeast is this way because we've nurtured a rural and feudalistic society which encourages religion over science and education and redistributes the wealth to the wealthy all under the name of low taxation.

Is it like a social fetish to trawl for grotesque stories like this and go "DIE DIE DIE KILL DIE KILL EAT FLESH KILL"


It's part of the psychological need to say "At least I'm not like THAT monster." when in reality we're all an unexpressed gene or two and a tramatic childhood event away.

The economy is pumping just the way it was designed to. 

 

You wanted deregulation. You wanted "trickle down economics". You got it!

Funny how the same people who like to mock the "United States of the Offended" spend so much of their time offended.

 

AM Radio outrage.

You know, I hear this a lot, but I never actually hear any stories about child molesters getting killed in prison.

 

Does that actually happen?

#2292558 The Story Behind The First Down Marker

Posted by Delhommey on 19 July 2013 - 11:14 AM

The large conference room full of ESPN executives was silent as Jerry Gepner and I finished presenting a simulation of a yellow, electronic first down line for football telecasts in May 1998. Finally, the silence was broken.

 

"Can you really do it?" one said.

 

We nodded.

 

"Can you have it ready for this NFL season?" another asked.

 

I paused slightly, and silently gulped. "Yes, but only if we start right away," I said.

 

Jed Drake, the pioneering, innovative head of remote production for ESPN, replied, "If you can really do it by September, and we can do it with you exclusively, we're in." They never even asked how much it would cost.

Nice read for the last week of the offseason.
