re: Ole Miss game day travelers info - Duke
Ajax, while probably packed, is good eats for the dollar. Located on the Square. City Grocery has a good bar upstairs and a good restaurant downstairs though a bit pricey. Also on the Square. Big Bad Breakfast is a local favorite, but next door they also have the Snack Bar for not breakfast st...

re: Are there any democrats on this board that don't like Warren/sanders taking over party? - Duke
[quote]we are in need of a reset.[/quote] I had the surreal experience after Scalice got shot of actually having to argue murder is bad, even if you don't like the politics of the target. There's far too much negative emotion stirred up in the political game today. I know, it drives the money...

re: Did you know there's a hurricane in the Atlantic that is going to hit Ireland? - Duke
[quote]Why? The winds had died down? It sure looked like one in that satelite image. [/quote] It was post tropical. Had hurricane force winds with it, but not a warm core anymore. That far north is about impossible to be fully tropical....

WTF!? How is that even possible? Upper air really cold to allow cooler water to support enough convection? It's been a wild season for sure....

re: Did you know there's a hurricane in the Atlantic that is going to hit Ireland? - Duke
[quote]Technically you're right because it will be extra-tropical. [/quote] It could be still tropical if it's moving fast enough, if you believe the models. That being said, staying fully tropical at like 60N would be ridiculous. ...

re: "Unprecedented Discovery" in physics coming 10-16-17 - Duke
[quote]My guess, they have pin pointed where a black hole merger occurred, it will be in one of the "voids" of the universe, thus giving support to the theory of primordial black holes.[/quote] Maybe but there was a rumor floating a month or two ago that LIGO and some euro gravitation wave detect...

re: Idea I've had for what to do about the Confederate Monument situation - Duke
[quote]Killing U.S. soldiers for an immoral cause is not something that should be celebrated with pride by any American[/quote] Its not like that's how it's being remembered in this narrative. The value judgements and truth of the history isn't important to what I'm talking about. I'm explaining ...

re: Idea I've had for what to do about the Confederate Monument situation - Duke
[quote]I guess that for most, losing is an odd thing to be so fervently proud of for so long.[/quote] I get that. Let's just say southern history isn't full of proud moments. A poor agricultural area, remmebered for slavery, Jim Crow, losing the civil war. The memory of a hard fight while ove...

re: Idea I've had for what to do about the Confederate Monument situation - Duke
[quote]John Oliver did a thoroughly entertaining breakdown of this issue recently. [/quote] Saw it. Laughed. His point is taken on the racial aspects at play and why the place the Confederacy has in the southern imagination is hard for an outsider to understand. They typically omit the narrat...

re: Idea I've had for what to do about the Confederate Monument situation - Duke
[quote]But, of course, it's much more fun to try to paint it as something exclusively spooky and sinister in the South that suddenly must be now be "erased".[/quote] Not really fun for a southerner. I think most of us can see there was definitely a racial undertone to putting up the monuments...

re: Updating insulation in existing house attic - Duke
[quote]I'm not an expert on this, but is this common? I've always been under the impression that you want to keep air circulation in an attic[/quote] I don't know why. The insulation is really there to keep air from moving, as air is an awesome insulator. I don't understand why you'd want to move...

re: While we are slaying Liberal myths about coal... let's talk Solar - Duke
[quote]It's really only anti-solar conservatives who ever argue that solar is pointless because it cannot entirely replace fossil fuels. Everyone else realizes that is not the goal. [/quote] No doubt. Looking out, there is a lot of cool things happening in energy storage and production. Hell guy...

re: While we are slaying Liberal myths about coal... let's talk Solar - Duke
[quote]I suppose the distribution system would be way to expensive to change to hydrogen. [/quote] Yeah, that's a tough one. It's kind of flammable and you'd have to refridgerate the shite out of it to move it as a liquid on trucks. It still isn't terribly efficient compared to batteries eith...

re: There is not a shortage of drinkable water in the world - Duke
