| Tiger Rant|| The Internal Problem of QB Development - UGATiger26 on 11/21/14 at 8:01 am|
What do we know about Les Miles and turnovers?
It’s pretty much common knowledge that the standard punishment for fumbling is the bench.
How about interceptions?
Well, we know Jarrett Lee threw a bunch of pick-6’s in 2008, and then never started again until Les had no other choice beside...
| Political Talk|| Obama could go out an a high note if he wanted - UGATiger26 on 10/31/14 at 12:21 pm|
Assuming R's take control of congress, Obama really does have a chance to be remembered as a decent president.
In my mind, he has two options:
1. Leave his pride at the door and realize that R's took congress for a reason. The people of the U.S. voted them there. He can actually realize that ...
| Political Talk|| Anyone ever see "Conspiracy? - UGATiger26 on 10/18/14 at 11:25 am|
About the Wannsee Conference and the creation of the Final Solution during WWII.
If I were a government or political science teacher in high school or college, having my students watch this would without a doubt be a part of my curriculum.
Excellent case study on groupthink and the incredible...
| Tiger Rant|| Harris/Jennings comparable situation to Stafford/Tereshinki/Cox - UGATiger26 on 9/23/14 at 9:02 am|
In 2006, Senior Joe Tereshinki got the starting nod at UGA for presumably having more experience and a better grasp of the offense.
However, it was Stafford who eventually became the full-time starter, presumably to focus on the future.
Should Miles make the same move with Harris?
| O-T Lounge|| Open letter to the SI.com staff - UGATiger26 on 9/14/14 at 10:11 am|
Your new website format blows. Why the hell would I want a pop-out sidebar taking up a third of my screen and blocking the article that I JUST opened?! I haven't even read the first sentence of the fricking article so why the hell would I already want to look at related articles? Does SI.com's primar...
| Tiger Rant|| A gift for a life-long Tiger fan - UGATiger26 on 8/28/14 at 11:22 am|
I never thought I would be posting this type of topic on TD. This is one of those things that you see happen to others, but never think will happen to your family.
My father was diagnosed on Tuesday with pancreatic cancer at 63 years old.
The man has been an LSU fan since he was old enough t...

Yep, you can just see the malice in that kid's eyes. Good thing school administrators subdued this monster before he killed someone.

Wow...things like this are how the narrative is manipulated. A narrow Supreme Court decision has become a full-fledged "war on women."
Does Buzzfeed include BC in their healthcare pl...
| O-T Lounge|| Denver nightlife/hotel advice? - UGATiger26 on 7/11/14 at 6:31 am|
Headed to Denver for a guy's trip at the end of July. Technically, I've been in Denver before, but have never really stayed there or done anything.
Will be landing at about 3:30pm and staying in Denver that night before heading to Aspen for the rest of the weekend.
Any suggestions for good d...

Let me start by saying I am very pro-2A, so don't get your panties in a bunch before reading the whole thing.
With the Hobby Lobby fallout going on, one of the issues that has come to the forefront is about rights. People are making a big deal about how women's rights are being infringed by the H...
| Political Talk|| Is logic/reason taking a back seat to emotion because of laziness? - UGATiger26 on 6/25/14 at 3:13 pm|
Forming an argument or belief based on logic and reason takes time and energy. One has to not only read, research, and become acquainted with the facts, but must also use cognitive energy to process it all into a narrative that can be understood and repeated.
On the other hand, forming an argume...

Planning a guy's trip out west in August and Aspen was an option that is being considered...
Anybody ever been in the summer? Decent nightlife and energy? Or does it become pretty dead in the summer?
The main focus would be fishing/rafting/outdoors type-stuff, but we obviously want to have a ...
| Political Talk|| Why no push to change names of San Francisco, San Diego, etc. - UGATiger26 on 6/9/14 at 7:25 am|
It just kind of hit me. I'm sure there have been fringe movements, but with all of the fervor that some make over separation of church and state, why no organized efforts to change the names of cities like these?
For example, take San Francisco, which is named after the Catholic Saint Francis of ...
| Political Talk|| Should we be reading anything into recent European elections? - UGATiger26 on 6/3/14 at 5:45 am|
Economist article this morning got me thinking. Lots of recent European elections are seeing victory for anti-EU parties and candidates seeking more autonomy and control of their own countries and weakening the establlishment in Brussels. Especially when it comes to economic issues like labor laws.

I figured this might be an interesting thought experiment...
Hypothetically, let's say you started a new nation/state/province/whatever and you could only choose 3 laws to promote the most order and prosperity, what would they be?

This is a question for those familiar with federal government salaries and wages...
Are there federal government jobs that pay an hourly wage of less than $10.10 or pay an annual salary that would break down to less than $10.10/hour if divided by number of hours worked?
If so, is there a signi...
