re: A League of Their Own- Why did Dottie drop the ball on purpose? - Ace Midnight
[quote]And to the one poster who said kit is the star of the movie.[/quote] I didn't say that. I said it was, mainly, Kit's story. Talented, but raw, triple threat baseball player - caught in the shadow of her big sister. Ends up a supporting player on her sister's team - gets traded to anothe...

re: Best 27/28 inch monitor for $500 (July/August 2015)? - Ace Midnight
[quote]The only single-GPU solutions that I think qualify as a good entry into 4K are the R9 Fury X, GTX 980 Ti, and Titan X. [/quote] Okay - so if I've narrowed it down to a R9 Fury X or a GTX 980 Ti, do I need to re-evaluate my monitor budget? And then what should I be looking at (assuming I...

[quote]all you need to do is increase the ceiling to $250K, so all the people making $120K to $250K pay the 7.5%. [/quote] You going to increase how much they get in proportion to their "contributions"? Or is this just another robbery at gunpoint?...

re: Best 27/28 inch monitor for $500 (July/August 2015)? - Ace Midnight
So, you're firmly in the "144 over 4k, unless there is a very specific need for 4k" camp? That's interesting. I'm torn, because 4k is clearly the future, and I tend to wring all the life out of components (I mentioned I have a 12-year old Dell monitor still happily doing its business, right?). ...

re: Social Security Bankruptcy: They Know Its Coming - Ace Midnight
Sovereign entities with the power to print money do not go bankrupt. They will increase payroll takes, push back retirment age even further, tax more retired person's income, etc., but they will continue to fund the program "as expected", because to do otherwise would be an abject political failu...

Best 27/28 inch monitor for $500 (July/August 2015)? - Ace Midnight
Looking for recommendations - budget is $500 - it will go with a new Skylake build next month. It will be paired with either top tier Nvidia or AMD card (or 1 behind). I would like to go display port, but that's not required. I have a brand bias towards ASUS, generally, but have never used one ...

re: A League of Their Own- Why did Dottie drop the ball on purpose? - Ace Midnight
[quote]She just lets go.[/quote] This is a great debate/discussion. I do not dispute that she let go of the ball as she was letting go of baseball (in a not-so-subtle metaphor). But she did not drop it on purpose. Kit knocked it loose. [quote]She didnt miss the ball or fail to block t...

[quote]So I think her official position now is that it is up to the viewer to decide what happened.[/quote] It seems deliberately vague and ambiguous. I mean, take the whole, "Is Deckard a replicant debate?" Same kind of thing. Very ambiguous and makes for better discussions than clear cut, ...

[quote]But he did not. Its its own cut scene filmed later of Dotties hand and her letting go of the ball.[/quote] That may symbolize her "letting go" of baseball - as she lets go of A baseball. But, in no way does that cut scene, by itself, mean she dropped it on purpose. [quote]letting Kit h...
