#2741887 Blake Griffin believes that Earth is 6,000 years old

It's all an illusion and it all happened at the same time.



Pack it up, guys. Jangler is god and he has spoken.

Who has the chimichangas?

if it was wrong it was wrong.



Sure, but just because our current answer MAY be wrong does not mean that ANY other answer is equally valid as the current one. That seems to be pstall's argument. And it's a bad one.

The fact that an answer CAN be changed with evidence that supports another answer indicates that we're interested in knowing for the sake of knowing and understanding. In the case of religious rebuttals to scientific answers, it's often "well, we don't KNOW that the scientific answer is absolutely correct, and it conflicts with my religious beliefs, so my answer is valid".

I like how some people are basically Siths. They deal in absolutes. They think that if an answer posited can change due to more accurate information being presented, then the system that garnered that result can't be trusted.

This is pstall in a nutshell.




#2741418 15 y.o. boy records bullies... gets charged with Disorderly Conduct

Posted by xlightsoutx on Yesterday, 03:36 PM

On topic, this is a terrible story. This is why kids are hurting/killing themselves. The adults are just lazy and/or fuging stupid, so the issues don't get solved.

My buddy graduated just two years ago. He is finishing up his second full school year as a teacher. He makes about $26k. That's in Jacksonville, NC.


Teachers start out at different amounts per county here in NC, but starting salary for a teacher with less than 5 years? If you make over $31k, you're lucky.

 

Oh, and I'm a middle grades science ed major. So I know this to be true with about 4 people that I know personally and it will likely be true for me (unless I luck up and get a job Charlotte, Raleigh, or Asheville, where starting pay is ~$30k, I would expect around $26 or 27k). ALSO, tenure is out the window and teacher raises in NC have been nonexistent in the past decade or so.


Basically, teachers have it as bad as they say and to say any different based on the fact that the 25+ year teachers skew the numbers of the MAJORITY of teachers is lazy and unfair.

Yes, this is the nuance and kindness you guys say these things with.  /sarcasm

 

Usually it is a lot of pointing and laughing and calling them stupid.


I can't speak for all. For myself, yeah, I do a LOT of that. And when I do, it's well-deserved (and pointed at the belief, not the person, unless the person shows that THEY are indeed stupid, and not JUST their beliefs).

It's adults believing the Earth is younger than the oldest fossils found. It's adults believing a boat that would be weaker than the average wooden ship of 1,000 years ago (and a lot of those didn't make it through rough seas and storms) and smaller than the Titanic would house all of the species on the planet and a 600 year old man with his 100 year old sons built it.


Ridiculous beliefs are deserving of ridicule, by definition. NOTE: I ridicule beliefs deserving of ridicule. If people can't separate their beliefs/opinions/positions from themselves to take criticism and dissent, and they then get offended and say I "attacked them for their beliefs", that is on them, so I honestly don't give a poo.

Some of the Christians in this thread....


*Spanish Inquisition*
*Salem Witch Trials*

Christians killed nonbelievers, heretics, blasphemers, and people they believed to be WITCHES! Yet, we don't say anything about why Christians historically hate non-Christians.

*We point out how ignorant to reality SOME of the facets of religion are*

Suddenly, we hate Christians.






Seriously, the fug?

This is pretty funny. And it's also why creationism has no place in science and why creationism could never get a television show.




#2732405 Mars is in opposition

Posted by xlightsoutx on 09 April 2014 - 01:07 AM

Most of you probably won't see this in time, but Mars is visible tonight. Wish I had known sooner. If you're on the east coast, look south. It's brighter than any star tonight, so it's easy to pick out. Pretty clear night from where I'm at, so I found it quick. It has a slight hint of red, even with the naked eye. If you have a telescope or a camera with good zoom capabilities, you can get a pretty good shot of it.




#2732036 Joe Person & Jonathan Jones putting our receiving corp into (Rivera's...

Posted by xlightsoutx on 08 April 2014 - 05:22 PM

I'm calling it now. We have a lot of experienced receivers who can catch, as of right now. No big standouts. Not big time, homerun ball types. We will draft that. He will be great. Don't forget we still have Olsen and our backfield options to throw to. I think, with us not having an experienced downfield threat, nobody will draw CONSISTENT double teams. And that could be the death of some teams, because that allows us to dictate the matchups that WE want. Sure, if we get that downfield threat in the draft, he'll draw some double teams. But at the end of the day, unless he's a clone of AJ Green or Megatron, he's not going to be doubled the entire game. It'll be a rookie or two + a lot of complementary receivers. You want to run a coverage that has a safety over the top of somebody? Fine. Pick your poison, because somebody else will be open simply because you overlooked them on that particular play.


Not saying we'll necessarily be a big time vertical passing team this season. I'm just saying we'll have more opportunities to have flashes of that on drives with the receiving corps we have now. And, as stated earlier, all of this is hinging on playcalling. If Shula doesn't improve there, it won't matter who our receivers are.


Note: The stats are somewhat misleading, IMO. The systems that these other players in sort of dictate their catches per game. Glennon didn't set the world on fire, and V-Jax was his primary target. Of course Underwood didn't get a lot of catches per game. Antonio Brown WAS the passing game in Pittsburgh, so of course Cotchery didn't have a stellar stat line week-to-week. Philly, same thing. Avant was just a piece of the puzzle there, plus, they had Desean Jackson. Avant was a body on the depth chart. He could damn well be our #2, which means he could surprise us. We COULD, really, already get more than the 10 catches per game with this group as it is now. Throw in a WR in the first or second round, and we might have something to be excited for.


Maybe I'm just trying to remain too optimistic.




#2730703 Panthers Sign Avant to 1 Year Deal

Posted by xlightsoutx on 07 April 2014 - 07:49 PM

Our WRs aren't world-beaters. However, they all measure well with Cam's abilities. They're big. They have some speed. Can adjust to passes due to their experience.


May not be MUCH better, on the whole, than we were at this point last year at the WR position, but we are DEFINITELY better.




#2729512 The Undertaker just lost

Posted by xlightsoutx on 06 April 2014 - 11:03 PM

From all I've seen, once the WWE hit the PG route hard about a decade ago, it has been really terrible. Bad writing, boring characters, terrible matches, etc.

I still remember Sable wearing nothing but black handprints, The Kat showing her boobs in all their glory in '99, Undertaker kidnapping Stephanie McMahon and having her in a very occult-esque ritual, Kane and Taker breaking Vince's ankle and then Stone Cold beating his ass in the hospital (BED PAN SHOT!), the Kiss My Ass Club, Gene Snitsky punting a baby after the Lita miscarriage storyline...you get the point. They've had some really risque stuff, and some straight up ABSURD stuff...and I just don't see them being that risky anymore. It makes me sad.

Good, I'm a little hesitant with him but he's explosive.

#2726089 Walking Dead Season 4

Posted by xlightsoutx on 03 April 2014 - 03:59 PM

I am up to #8 and so far from what I remember they followed the comic closely. Shane going out quick was a change and I don't remember Jim(the guy with the scratch) No Daryl and his brother.



Jim was in the show. They left him on the way to the CDC by the tree. Everybody said their goodbyes. Before they left for the CDC, he was digging graves and kinda lost his mind. They tied him to a tree. Eventually let him loose.


I'm kinda glad they kept Shane through season 2. Allowed the affair with Lori and all that drama to be fleshed out better.




#2725917 Cooks has confidence. Makes statement about D-Jax

Posted by xlightsoutx on 03 April 2014 - 01:39 PM

Something tells me he will be gone before #28. 3 weeks ago, I was almost comfortable that he WOULD be the pick.

If he makes it past #25, I'll be fuging shocked.
