Anybody know why the game is blacked out on ESPN3? Or I guess more importantly, do y'all know any other way to watch it online? I'm going to have to watch from work today, so any help is much appreciated....

[quote]Did you just say that in 10 years 20% of the jobs will be gone?[/quote]The article I linked claims that half of U.S. jobs are susceptible to replacement in the next 20 years. Given that estimate, 20% being gone in 10 years isn't impossible. A pessimistic prediction sure, but not an impossible...

I know there's a good chance I'll get blasted by many on the board for even asking such a blasphemous thing. But it's an honest question, particularly aimed towards those of you who have an interest in robotic advancements and what it means for society.
Long question short, is our society and pro...

So I'm in a points league with some odd values and I'm trying to get a feel for how it should change my rankings. Does anyone know of a free custom baseball rankings site that I can input theses settings.
It's not a money league, so I'm not looking to get a rotowire subscription or anything with ...

It depends on a sufficiently large number of things that no answer in this thread will give you any semblance of a "correct" answer.
