  1. Cryptocurrencies

    I'll second this. The decentralized idea is a huge draw for people. Right now when you spend money people start tracking you. Visa charges you fees, your bank charges you fees, you give data out. Things like that. Decentralization removes the power of banks and government. Right now, the dollar only works because we all say it works. What happens if the dollar fails due to a trade war or something like that? Here's a very basic primer. https://ripple.com/insights/the-case-for-more-decentralization/
  2. Jamal Lord vs Taylor Martinez

    I'm assuming we can take them at their best. Pre injury T-Mart I could've seen eventually getting to New York. Horrible throwing motion and everything, he was something else.
  3. Passed the 4 hour license exam for psychology with flying colors today.

      @ladyhawke I'm a professor. I love it. As of today, I have 14 projects up and running and teaching 2-3 classes a semester. School psych isn't my jam, but yeah we need good ones.

      Huskerzoo-Excellent! I couldn't have done my job without the input of both clinical and school psychologists (I'm a Speech-Language Pathologist-retired).

      Congrats, Zoo!  :thumbs

  4. Duval's conditioning starts Monday. UCF players share.

    While I think that Duval is probably spinning it the right way, that second quote is completely wrong.
  5. How am I sweating so much when I'm not even moving and the temperature isn't bad?

      Someone cut your cocaine with drywall and you're going through withdrawl?

      You picked a bad day to stop smelling glue?

       @NM11046, you just reminded me of another movie I have to add to my most re-watchable movies list.

  6. Can't Miss Any Games This Year

    I know that there are some husker bars in the area. Maybe that will be a little more palatable. If you figure out a good solution, let me know. I'll be in Houston almost every other weekend during the season. Wouldn't mind someone else doing the scouting for me.
  7. Dems Rebuild

    Beto is awesome imo. I'm also of the thought that this is free publicity for Beto. We learned during the trump campaign that getting your name recognized counts for a lot. All that said, this song annoys me a lot. His name is pronounced Bet-o not bay-toe.
  8. What is your claim to fame?

    I've written two resolutions presented to the United Nations.
  9. LB Nick Henrich

    I think the average fan doesn't look at where people are from. I think they just look at stars and say great. At the point you're looking at where guys are from, you probably know enough to know that the families of those guys aren't around. That transition goes pretty quickly with not a lot of middle ground imo. As for Nebraska fans, I think we have a little time before we run into the excitement going away. Right now, guys my age are having kids these are going to be kids raised by parents that got the glory years in their childhood. I think we have another 10 years or so before we start worrying about recruits from Nebraska not having a pull.
  10. Bracketology

    Please don't
  11. Bracketology

    Given that there's only 1 team on the list, this feels like a trick question. I'm gonna go with 7.
  12. Is the Michigan game now a q1 win? Or is that only calculated at the time of playing them?

      It's good that Maryland has so many of those Q1 wins and is so far above us in the bracketology.


      Wait a second....

      If Maryland gets in and we don't (and our end results are similar), then I'm not gonna believe people saying team history doesn't matter. Maryland is a basketball school, and that'd be the tie breaker.

      @Huskerzoo I completely understand. Been there myself...but this season I kinda went in looking for improvement and for Miles to try and keep his job....so it’s been a pleasant surprise. 

  13. Suggestions for a place to eat in Lincoln for 20 adults, 4 babies and 2 kids? 


    Looking for something nice but not fancy. Right now I'm looking at Lazlos but want more options.

      Oh, wedding rehearsal places.


      Scratch Phat Jack's, Momo's, and all those places.


      I'd call Toast. They have pretty decent food, good beers on tap (& a full bar, and a room large enough to accommodate your group that can be sealed off from the rest of the restaurant.  I'm pretty sure with enough advance notice they'd reserve that space for you.


      Lazlo's down south (56th & Old Cheney) has a room that should accommodate that group, too. And it's pretty easy to get to from anywhere in town.


      Those would be the first places I'd call for a rehearsal dinner. 


      Good luck!

      Green Gateau downtown is nice. Lincoln doesn’t have many great dining options. For good food, I usually recommend driving to Omaha.

      Really, no Misty's yet? Downtown one is nice and pretty casual. Fireworks would be good too.

  14. There's a whole theory set up around identification and intervention that's really fascinating. See below, we try to do the same thing. However, group level intervention results in reduced precision in changing behavior. A good example was DARE. It was an attempt to change behavior, but it didn't work well. Everyone got it though which was good. If we developed better group level interventions that we include in school programming it could go a long way. You're starting to see some of this pop up in the form of mindfulness programs in school. Unfortunately, folks do not fully understand why we use mindfulness skills, so some of the benefits may be lost. This is a very important step for research, it's just difficult (and expensive) to track long-term outcomes of an infrequent behavior (e.g. homicidal acts of violence). https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https://www.med.uottawa.ca/sim/data/Images/Prevention_stages_e.gif&imgrefurl=https://www.med.uottawa.ca/sim/data/Prevention_e.htm&h=529&w=945&tbnid=Kq35e7cUiNHtEM:&tbnh=118&tbnw=211&usg=__dpAaO5GGbKnCkWqvuUqLrNE9Eyo%3D&vet=10ahUKEwiTps7nn6vZAhVFR6wKHbI5ApgQ9QEIMDAA..i&docid=4rkY1iSWJDD7yM&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiTps7nn6vZAhVFR6wKHbI5ApgQ9QEIMDAA
  15. I agree and disagree. I think people would benefit from treatment, but you cannot mandate treatment. Society would also benefit from people receiving treatment. Additionally, you can make the argument that most mental illness are just extreme manifestations of normal behavior. We need to teach foundational skills to keep, we need to de-stigmatize mental health services, and we need to work as a society to promote access to services.
