And I'm voting Thanos.

I think Rush has an excellent point here.
Political Correctness really mirrors the story of the Emperor's New Clothes. It doesn't actually exist unless you let it exist.
Who is the person who is unaffected by political correctness? The person who doesn't allow himself to be affected by it. ...

Here's how I see this playing out.
He will be redshirted, and since he's sitting idle, he will probably be arrested two more times before next season, leading to a dismissal sometime next summer.
Let's see if he fulfills his destiny.

I like the Hobbit movies, but like many other posters, I dislike Jackson's penchant for overlong action scenes with little to no regard for realism.
And by realism, I don't mean the kind of realism that includes dwarfs, dragons and elves.
I mean the realism that includes gravity and basic phys...

On the final play, when Alabama was lined up to kick the...

Yes. Granting a ceasefire now would only allow Hamas the opportunity to recruit and re-arm.
It's in Israel's best interest to push forward and wipe them out.
Hamas will not stop until Israel is dead. Period.

Regarding speed, EVERYONE runs slower in pads. Including everyone on the field with Quinn.
He will still be faster than the rest of them, by (mostly) the same difference if they were not wearing pads.

There's no SEC team that's going to make this playoff without winning the SEC title. If you think two SEC teams are going to make it in, you are deluding yourself.

This reminds me of the classic Clint Eastwood/Sondra Locke exchange in "Bronco Billy."

Sondra: "Jesus... what did you do to HIM?"
Clint: "Nothing. He's my best friend."
