re: Mahmud Abdul Rauf Says The NBA Is Not As Good As It Used to Be - slackster
[quote] I would definitely debate you on whether the elites are better.[/quote] You won't find much argument from me. I'm of the opinion that the legitimately elite players of an era could be successful in any era. As for this thread, the topic is whether the NBA has deteriorated in quality s...

[quote]Big men today suck compared to big men in the late 80's early 90's.[/quote] That is a fair assessment. However, in the same breath you have to mention how much guard play, and wing play to a lesser extent, has improved since then. I believe the improvements here have more than offset t...

re: Bizarre Math Question and Answer breaks the internet - Sorry if already posted - slackster
[quote]Nobody is arguing the answer. Strictly following the PEMDAS order of operations, the way it is taught in elementary arithmetic class, the 'answer' is 288. Reading the statement the way an [b]adult engineer[/b] would read it, the 'answer' is 2. [/quote] And he'd still be wrong, so WTF d...

[quote]Or it can be read as positive one combined with negative two using addition. I feel the second scenario is more useful when you get deeper into math. [/quote] Continuing with that logic, the OP can be read as 48 times .5 times (9+3), right? :popcorn:...

re: Bizarre Math Question and Answer breaks the internet - Sorry if already posted - slackster
[quote] could see how someone could interpret it that way.[/quote] I can too. It is easy to understand why someone would use "your" instead of "you're", but one is correct and one is incorrect depending on the context. [quote]Not all math problems have one solution. Some have no solution. Som...

re: Jeanerette cop dies in chase while not wearing seatbelt - Manslaughter charges - slackster

re: Jeanerette cop dies in chase while not wearing seatbelt - Manslaughter charges - slackster
I guess I just don't see it as cut and dry as others do. As I understand the statute that boom posted, a fleeing suspect could get charged with manslaughter if an officer shot at him, missed, and killed a bystander. I'm usually a cop defender in other threads, but I believe there has to be more ...

re: Jeanerette cop dies in chase while not wearing seatbelt - Manslaughter charges - slackster
[quote]I don't follow.[/quote] :lol: I worded it poorly. I'm saying that if I was a juror, I don't believe I could convict this guy of manslaughter given the current facts of the case. That may be the wrong opinion, and perhaps he is guilty of the charge, but I would at least want the judg...

re: Jeanerette cop dies in chase while not wearing seatbelt - Manslaughter charges - slackster
[quote]Read the statute.[/quote] I understand that the manslaughter charge is within the letter of the law. I'm commenting on the spirit of the law, so to speak. Honest question - if a cop is speeding down I-10 in order to get behind someone and pull them over, and he ends up in an acciden...
