re: Donald Trump risks China rift with Taiwan call - SpqrTiger on 12/2/16 at 4:43 pm
China can suck a big U.S. bald eagle dick. We can talk to whoever the hell we want to talk to. Period. Furious? Do something about it. The U.S. should not operate as though we are scared of China or anyone else. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: First Clip of Rogue One, Jyn Erson kicking some butt - SpqrTiger on 12/1/16 at 10:40 am
Ugh. The action scene looks like shite. Seriously, it's like they're all moving in slow motion, especially the Stormtroopers. I still have plenty of high hopes for the movie, but I do not like this scene at all. And no, I don't buy the 110-pound girl kicking the shite out of multiple men at o...

I have never seen so many people so jealous of someone. So the guy was a radio host, and he saw an opportunity to jump on board O's staff, do some work for him, and it results in a career move that paid off. So the frick what? So Ponamsky was supposed to just stay a trained monkey behind a radi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

My son plays this game, and I was initially interested in playing it myself... until I saw all the automatic weapons in a WWI game. Come on, man. I get that portable machine guns are fun, but a WWI game should have waaaaay more single-shot bolt action rifles than fully automatic weapons for infan...

Strategically, it makes more sense to hire Sark if Kiffen isn't being retained by Bama. Sark and Kiffen are roughly equal. If Kiffen leaves and Sark goes to LSU, Bama has no fancy ex-USC coordinator. ...

Why the rush to judgement? - SpqrTiger on 11/25/16 at 6:14 pm
If neither Jimbo nor Herman want the job, and O is lined up to take it, then you have O on the hook. Why the rush to name him permanent head coach? If a search is required to uncover a more qualified coach than O, then SEARCH. Are we really going to talk to two guys and say, "well, no one wants t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Pope Francis extends Catholic priests' right to forgive abortion - SpqrTiger on 11/21/16 at 9:32 am
I don't always agree with Pope Francis, but he's right about this. All sins can be forgiven by God. All sins. The life, death, and resurrection of Jesus is the triumph over sin. Anyone who goes to God truly and sincerely seeking forgiveness will not be turned away. The Church should not interf...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Was the end of the Roman Republic and start of the Empire good bad for them? - SpqrTiger on 11/18/16 at 11:23 am
I think you need a narrower question to start from. It was good for who? The common people, the aristocracy, the merchant class, the power elite? From a general standpoint, I think everyone in Rome benefited from a closure to the hostilities of the 1st century BC. We are talking about 80 years of...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: PACOM Chief wants the Army to create ship-killing units - SpqrTiger on 11/18/16 at 8:57 am
There's no downside to this. We should always be looking for the cheapest, most effective way to kill a ship. Which is more efficient, using a $2.6 billion Virginia class submarine with 135 people on it to sink an enemy ship off the coast of an island, or using a (guessing here) five-man team...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Should World War I and World War II be treated as one giant conflict? - SpqrTiger on 11/18/16 at 6:50 am
This is an example of the classic historical issue of scale. The further away you get from a time period, the closer together events seem, and more links in the chain of cause and effect seem to emerge. It's an illusion. Zoom in tighter and you will see that the nations involved are not even...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Is it ill advised to start two pass catchers on the same team at the same time? - SpqrTiger on 11/17/16 at 2:25 pm
Not always. It depends on the situation, and the volume of pass plays being called. For example, if you had started Adams and Montgomery when the Packers played the Bears in Week 7, then you would have racked up. But the situation was that the Packers had no real running game at all, and they ...
