re: Dan Marino suing NFL over concussions - PaddlingTiger
[quote]Thank you for posting that link. [/quote] Look more closely at this case. Big pieces of it are about to be dismissed. Mississippi passed a law imposing more strict rules for managing head injuries at the high school level that make much of the lawsuit moot. You will probably see many mo...

[quote]Possibly, but the allure of a college scholarship is a strong motivator, and many kids that play football come from poor economic backgrounds with little parental supervision to begin with.[/quote] I agree 100% and that will ultimately be the pool of potential players.

re: Is Water Vapor a Greenhouse Gas? If not what are the implications? - PaddlingTiger
What you are describing is the fact that water vapor (and corresponding clouds) both prevent heat from reaching the surface of the Earth and trap heat on the surface of the Earth. With less clouds and water vapor, more heat hits the Earth (higher highs) and more heat dissipates at night (lower lows...

re: was Jefferson Davis guilty of treason? - PaddlingTiger
It does not matter whether secession was outlawed by the Constitution. Davis and the the other confederates took up arms against the US and then lost.
