I think I need to see it again today.
1) is 100% correct. In addition, they screwed up on the physics of the launch.
2 I am not sure of.
The accretion disc can very easily be the source of heat and light for the star system. And I am not talking about extreme cases. Accretion discs often ...

People who react that way and feel that aren't doing so because they react strongly to minor things.
It means that they are engrossed on the emotional level to the point that the movie IS real to them. They intellectually know it isn't, but you get drawn in nonetheles...

Hate to break it to you but all politicians lie or bend the truth.
If you just think its Obama or Dems then you need a reality check.
You are missing the supposed point.
The frustration isn't just the lies.
It's the fact that they are getting away with absurdly ...

You'll be able to tear it apart with the particulars, but as a generalization:
Prisoners by and large are those who have acted maliciously to harm others and are in the process of rehabilitation for a time proportional to the transgression.
During this time it makes sense that they lose a fac...

[quote]There are a number of illegals living and working within the united states. Many of them have children that were born here or born to a U.S. citizen. Thus, while the parent(s) are illegal, the child is not. Or, at a minimum, the child was granted status to be a legal resident and not face dep...

So what happens after three years?
I guess I don't see how this changes anything.
Unless you want to pull out the tin foil hat and assume the "plan" is for the children born in the 3 years that are magically American citizens of a demographic they pander to. ...

I went with my retirement date grouping +1 because I probably won't be pulling from the assets that contain that fund right out of retirement.
If you are going to draw out of the account in 2055, I would leave it as is. ...

I don't know.
A layman's guess is that it will start by being imposed on up and coming coaches who haven't yet proven themselves and are eager to do so.
"Why yes, we will let you coach here from Michigan State.....given you accept this way of paying."
And in reality, I'm surprised it isn'...

In the past 7 years or so coaching salaries at the top of CFB has been rising dramatically.....even the richest coffers aren't inexhaustiable and the budgetary burden can only be justified with a superior product.
