re: Expanding playoff from 4 to 8 teams - Volvagia
[quote]From what? Does the NFL have a problem?[/quote] Yeah. Quite a few actually. But in the context of the OP: No one really gives a shite about games till maybe games 12-13 or so. Part of what makes CFB amazing is how much is on the line every week, and the emotion from players an...

re: Is this committee system better than BCS computers? - Volvagia
[quote] The biggest complaint and catalyst to move away from the computers was that head-to-head wasn't taken into account (ie FSU getting in over Miami in the 2000 season.) The next wave a change was spurred by a team getting in that didn't win it's division or conference (Bama in 2011 season). Th...

re: Morbid Question. Sorry: In a fire, do most die of smoke or from the fire itself? - Volvagia
It's not that the oxygen is all taken in the fire. In fact, you don't need that much oxygen to function. Your primary urgency to breathe isn't to get more oxygen, it's to exhale CO2. If the fire is bad enough to make a low oxygen environment, you'll suffer more from the carbon monoxide ...

re: Would you be ok with your property taxes increasing - Volvagia
Um. You are getting a little more sucked into the politics of tax collection than you should, and aren't thinking it through. Income taxes are loaded with subsidies, credits, and deductions that allow a large fraction of people to get away with not paying a cent. Indeed, many of them n...

re: Would you be ok with your property taxes increasing - Volvagia
They don't generate enough revenue to accomplish what they want. But what they want is unreasonable. They don't allocate. Errrrrrrbody gotta have the best! Except they end up all being mediocre. It's the same principle/thought process as to why LA has so damn many 4 year universities. ...

re: Would you be ok with your property taxes increasing - Volvagia
It's not about the property taxes. Property taxes are "insane" in Texas because that is the primary source of revenue. LA has income taxes, sales taxes, in addition to property taxes. Although I suppose property taxes does give government pressure to spent on infrastructure (more value=m...

I'm kind of a similar mind. I know the slippery slope arguments, but I don't mind these types of preferences and demanding payment for privileged access....as long as they remain in the wireless application. Wireless bandwidth is at a premium, especially for video. So moves like this are jus...
