Rush - hardest working band in rock and roll history? - Ace Midnight
I know they're polarizing on this board (and other places). Few doubt their raw talent and productivity, but combine that productivity with the work ethic in the studio and on the road, an intact, working lineup that is unchanged for 40+ years, and their philanthropic efforts. Is Rush the hardes...

New Desktop Build - Haswell or wait for Skylake? - Ace Midnight
I know we had a topic up the other day, but do I gain anything by waiting for Skylake to drop? I mean, Intel does keep pricing pretty tight to avoid competing against itself. And, is USB 3.1 a must have for a general purpose desktop? I pretty much keep them in service 5 years or so. Any ot...

Broken Windows Theory - effective "tyranny"? - Ace Midnight
[link=(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broken_windows_theory)]Wiki on concept[/link] Most famously employed by Rudi Giuliani in cleaning up a New York City that badly needed it, so there is little question that, if applied "properly", it is effective and can cure a city that was considered "ungovern...

History Thread: Presidential Generations and other trivia - Ace Midnight
Just something I noticed recently - NO "silent generation" President - and unlikely to ever be, now, as there have been 3 2-term Baby Boomer Presidents in a row. Millenials will be coming of age (barely) in 2016, but if we get a 2-term boomer or the first Gen-X President in 2016, the younger remain...

LSU's 3rd QB - Brad Kragthorpe - Ace Midnight
How about Kragthorpe getting some reps at the back end of this game? And he threw a decent screen pass. Obviously his future is as a coach, but it's nice to see hard work rewarded with a few reps (including a pass) by a walk-on in front of the home crowd. :cheers:...

Football is a game of inches... - Ace Midnight
I recognize we got dominated - at least for 3 full quarters and change, but: IF we kick the field goal instead of going for it on 4th down - AND we kick both the 2-point conversions and they're good... That game was tied at the end of regulation. Again - that doesn't change the fact that...

Spinoff Thread: Best Fictional Sport in M/TV History? - Ace Midnight
I'm leaning towards rollerball from the film of the same name(1975 version, not 2002). BASEketball might be second. I think Dodgeball would be a candidate, because, although not strictly fictional, a professional version is. Anything else worth considering?...
