I'm not really here to talk about whether this movie will be good, looks like it will be precisely what it tries to be. A cliche chick flick high school love story.
I'm here because it is being promoted as "this generations Mean Girls"
Holy frick are we a generation past Mean Girls? I'm so old...

A. If you're not gay than why do you care? How does a gay couple getting married affect you?
B. How is not allowing someone to marry whoever they want not discrimination?...

Just send in the troops and kill anyone who has any ties to ISIS whatsoever. Anyone who has ever been accused or suspected of being an ISIS sympathizer gets wiped out.
Would be worth the negative reaction from some parts of the world IMO...
| Tiger Rant|| Why does everything have to be "all good" or "all bad"? - Tiger1242 on 2/17/15 at 10:36 pm|
Does Johnny Jones do (or not do) some questionable things? Yes
Do we get lazy and not block out at times, giving up offensive rebounds? Yes
Is our shot selection terrible at times? Of course
Have we seen huge improvements from fringe guys like Patterson and Quarterman this year? Yes

For those that coach, and those that just like/know the game....
To get this out of the way, we all know it's way more about how you teach it to your team rather than what you teach them, because every system works if run effectively, so we don't need to debate that.
My question is: Assuming y...

I get it now that he's older, less explosive, and needs his rest. Why did he never do it his first 5-8 years in the league?
How was that a good PR move? He likely would've won a few just bc who he is, now it's something he will never be able to claim...
| O-T Lounge|| We all know history is written by the victors - Tiger1242 on 2/12/15 at 7:12 pm|
But how much of what we learn in school is romantisized/biased towards the people in charge at the time?
Certainly ancient history is almost totally reorganized by the victors to make them look like the good guys, which is one reason why people love Ancient Rome so much.
So how much is cold hard ...
| O-T Lounge|| Was George McClellan a coward or an idiot? - Tiger1242 on 2/7/15 at 9:28 am|
Was he scared to go into battle? Was he secretly against fighting the south?
Or was he just a terrible commander with no sense or decision makin skills?
Also if he'd have been more aggressive would the Civil war have ended sooner?...

He lied about being in a helicopter that was hit by an RPG in Iraq in 2003, was actually a helicopter that took off an hour before him

He just went on a rant about how his son was one of the top TEs in the nation after his junior season, he committed to Notre Dame and stopped going to camps, they labeled him a 2 star.
Then he had 100 excuses why his son didn't get real playing time in college that had nothing to do with his talen...

Who is a famous person in history who is famous because they tried to emulate other famous people from history?
Mine would be Julius Caesar, or really any great Roman/Greek general post 300BC. All of those guys were basically trying to be Alexander the Great.
Also, the Founding Fathers of Ame...

I'm trying to change out the battery on my Michael Kors watch and I can't find a battery size online, and there's like 6 different model numbers on the back so I dk which one is for the battery.

I'm a young teacher and coach and I was talking to a colleague about how so many of our students just don't care about their grades. We both made the comment that we would never imagined straight up not doing classwork or not trying on a test/quiz knowing we would get a bad grade. He made the commen...

Anyone check this one out? It is written, directed, and starring Zach Braff. I watched it last night and I really enjoyed it, it mixes the LOL's with a lot of real life issues. He comes off as quite selfish and kind of a shitty father who is pushing all of his issues onto his kids, but it did a good...

Maybe because the conditions are almost always perfect? Whenever the Tour is in Hawaii the scores are always super low. It looks like the winner today will be pushing -20, two years ago Russell Henley won at -24!...
