re: Looks like the Olympics spurred Rio's economy - UGATiger26
[quote]Should be held in one location. Greece[/quote] I'd be down for that. Go back to it's roots. That'd be cool. But do you think it would be feasible for one country/city to host something of that magnitude every four years? Maybe so. I'm just not familiar with how much logistics a...

re: Florida police charged after killing unarmed librarian during exercise - UGATiger26
[quote]It's really hard to fathom how many safety protocols were violated to have gotten to the point that in the year of our Lord 2016, a trained police officer was using live rounds in a demonstration scenario with civilians and pointed a real loaded gun at that woman and pulled the trigger SEVERA...

re: Florida police charged after killing unarmed librarian during exercise - UGATiger26
[quote] "Why did he aim the gun at her and not off to the side," said William Glucksman[/quote] Uhh, how about a better question... How the hell were weapons not inspected and cleared prior to this exercise? Or why weren't they using rubber ducks or something? I cannot fathom them using a...

re: Article: Should Steriods be Legal? - UGATiger26
[quote]but some sort of PED is being used by a majority of athletes.[/quote] How are you defining "PED?" But more importantly, how are you defining "athletes?" If we're talking athletes of all sports, ages, and levels, then no, a majority are not taking PEDs (not banned ones, at least). ...

[quote]the mayor expects the store to eat that increase, i think raising the price with the tax is "price gouging"[/quote] Ah, I see now. The tax isn't supposed to "apply" at the retail level. So, if I'm a small family-owned restaurant that sells cans of soft drinks, and I buy 1000 cans w...

[quote]No, according to the mayor, those higher prices are caused by city businesses price gouging their customers in order to stir up opposition to the tax. "They're gouging their own customers," Kenney said, KYW News reports.[/quote] Well, a 1.5 cent tax on a case of 12oz cokes (288oz) woul...

re: Alternatives to dipping that are as effective at keeping you regular - UGATiger26
[quote]Definitely not an excuse. It's just far and away the most effective way I've found to get things moving. It's not why I started in the first place but it is the only good side effect. To whoever suggested smoking. I'll never start smoking. Dipping is bad enough. I'll quit. I'm just wondering ...
