  1. @Mavric is a huge Billy Joel fan.
  2. The pentagon is working on a new laser. But for realsies, there are actual anti-drone weapons out there. https://www.popsci.com/technology/pentagon-anti-drone-weapon/ https://www.militarytimes.com/off-duty/military-culture/2021/06/22/this-enormous-drone-gun-can-pluck-uavs-right-out-of-the-sky/
  3. I'm surprised any armor can survive on the battlefield. There are so many ways to take out a tank these days. I know the M-1 is a tough SOB, but every piece of armor has a weak point, and there are drones like flies on manure in Ukraine.
  4. It's unreal seeing Nebraska in the top third of the conference, with our three remaining opponents at the bottom of the standings. And that two of them are Ohio State and Michigan, teams we beat by double digits earlier. We need to win out, avenge that loss to Rutgers, and we'll be good. Nebraska in excellent shape for not only an at-large bid, but a decent seed following their 18 point win over Minnesota. Every single team in the NET era Top 40 in all metrics has earned a single digit seed. Huskers should be Top 40 in NET (currently #43) following tonight's victory. Nebraska can likely get in finishing 1-2, but would be a lock if they can finish 2-1 or 3-0. Meanwhile, Minnesota is eliminated from at large contention.... Gophers will need to win B10T.
  5. Scoggin was dismissed from the team two years ago this month, and Love was dismissed at the end of the season (but was removed from the team at the same time as Scoggin). Britt Prince knew all of this before she committed to Nebraska. UNL had already done their investigation and taken the action they felt was warranted, which did not include removing Williams. This would have all been disclosed to recruits, especially someone like Prince, whose mother is also a coach. I wouldn't be too worried about Williams being ousted and losing the incoming class.
  6. We told you when they rammed all these Conservative judges onto the SC that they would go after Roe, and people doubted. After they took down Roe, we said they'd go after Obergefell next, and people said no. Welp. Here we go. Of course a person biased against a party in a trial shouldn't sit in judgment of that person, regardless of the source of the bias. If a person is biased against cops, that person should not - and currently would not - be seated in that jury. This is basic common sense. It doesn't matter that the legal argument is nonsense. It's being thrown into the arena in an effort to speak the end of Obergefell into existence.
  7. Republicans - people on welfare are lazy bums Also Republicans - it's totally okay our "billionaire" orange god is coming to you with hands out begging for money
  8. As an attorney, there are a few things that stand out to me about this ruling that are absolutely calamitous for Donald Trump and his children. Here’s why. First, the penalties on Don Jr. and Eric Trump are arguably even MORE devastating for them. Both Don Jr. and Eric Trump are young and both men are currently overseeing Trump Organization day to day. On the contrary, as a 77-year old, Trump’s involvement in the company has reportedly been limited in recent years. This ruling has essentially left Don Jr. and Eric Trump unemployed. Second, the fact that Donald Trump and the Trump Organization are both banned from applying for loans from any New York-chartered financial institutions for 3 years makes it incredibly hard for Trump to actually afford the judgment. Together with the E. Jean Carroll verdict, Trump is now responsible for almost $450 MILLION in penalties - an amount that would wipe out nearly every penny of cash he reportedly has. Engoron did not hold back with his words in this decision: “The defendants’) complete lack of contrition and remorse borders on pathological.” One thing is clear, Judge Engoron’s ruling upholds the integrity of the financial marketplace - and finally holds Trump accountable for his many lies. What are your thoughts, did Trump deserve these historic penalties? -Attorney Joe Gallina
  9. Putin's orange American acolyte probably called to congratulate him.
  10. "Both sides" guys are inevitably voting for Orange Man Bad. Copium is a bitter pill.
  11. Even if there's an initial reduction in commercials to start the broadcast, they'll eventually put them back in because they want more money.
  12. I agree. Everyone thinks women & children and innocent men should have food & water. It's a problem that the entire government structure, such as it is, is a terrorist organization. How do you provide aid to those people without benefiting the terrorists in some way? It's a terrible situation.
  13. Isn't most of the free world providing humanitarian aid to Palestinians while also supporting "Israel's right to defend itself," both politically and economically? Didn't America fund both sides of the Iran/Iraq war? Don't we have a history of funding both sides of wars dating back decades? I mean sure, 'gubmint bad' gets clicks, but this isn't anything new.
  14. Remember when this clown told his cult they were going to get tired of winning? Good times.
  15. This tweet is cited on Know Your Meme. Weird. https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/are-pop-tarts-ravioli
  16. I mean, when you lay it out like that, probably not?
  17. Yeah, a bit this. The folks at our party had never heard any of the songs he did, but honestly, we're a different generation than his target audience. I will say the overall production was cool, and I was especially impressed with the skating/dancing. That could have been a disaster and it looked effortless.
  18. Just replay Prince's epic performance until the sun esplodes and we all become stardust. Nothing will ever top him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WYYlRArn3g YT won't let me embed this. Just go watch.
  19. The Hobbit was the first thing I thought of. That should have been, at most, two movies.
  20. So, Wicked will be at minimum two parts? Not a fan of splitting movies up like that.
  21. Two things I remember about that game (which have nothing to do with this conversation) are the circus catches the TT receivers made over and over. Fingertips on the ball? Catch. Blanket coverage? Catch. One of the only times that happened to that defense. The other thing I remember was the TT Guard (whose name I forget) who really slowed Suh down. One of the very few players to single-handedly have such a huge effect on Suh. Kept their QB comfortable in the pocket most of the game.
