re: Classic pictures from the Titanic, for your amusement - MarcusQuinn

re: What is the appeal of conspiracy theories? - MarcusQuinn
The basis of your argument is flawed. The explanation of how terroists could have executed 9/11 could be outlined in a few paragraphs. The conspiracy expanation would be a book. The conspiracy theory isn’t the “easy answer.” And fear that your government might kill you certainly doesn’t make the...

re: What is the appeal of conspiracy theories? - MarcusQuinn
[quote]The reason they prosper, is simplicity. A ready made explanation that assigns malice to a cadre or group or business or government is more readily acceptable to a primate brain, than the totality of tens of trillions of events occurring in a specific grouping of random chance mixed with d...

re: State Police suspend ticket-writing program amid internal review - MarcusQuinn
Traffic and parking fines have always been a revenue source. And if the citations are legit, it’s a fair and consistent way to fund the police departments. But this is one of the areas that will get hit hard by self driving/automated cars. Entire professions and industries could shrink drastical...

re: Nov. 6 depth charts and each teams returning starters 2018... - MarcusQuinn
False. That’s the reality of who is starting seniors. Beyond that, you are classifying freshman through redshirt juniors in the same category. At most positions that’s a huge difference. Does that account for juniors that may or may not come back? Injuries? Suspension? Minutes played? ...

Downside of being Bama - MarcusQuinn
Bama is a great, granted. Great coach, great program, history, etc. Not discounting that, but... it must kinda suck to expect to win every single time. Where is the excitement and euphoria of upsetting a team? If you are #17 and number #3 comes to town, it’s a huge opportunity. If you win, you storm...

re: Do you have high or low expectations for Saturday?gut feeling? - MarcusQuinn
I'm optimistic, which is atypical. I think the offense will get better with reps. Youth and a new scheme. Aranda knows how to coach. Again, young guys are learning and we are getting a few people back. But it's mostly emotion. College ball is all about emotion and momentum. Auburn is not ...

re: What are some customized must haves when building new homes? - MarcusQuinn
Light switches that are activated by the door opening are great for small closets or a small pantry but you probably don't want them in a walk-in or occupiable space. Seems easy and looks good at first glance, but if you want to close the door when you are inside, you will be in the dark. Can't clos...

re: What are some customized must haves when building new homes? - MarcusQuinn
I'd say avoid pocket doors unless it's a door you want open more often than not. The hardware isn't as easy to use and most don't lock very well. Even the better hardware. Also, over time the tracks can get dirty or loose and half of that is hidden in your wall. Finally, you can't put a plug or swit...

re: Pro Football Talk's twitter account delivers the truth - MarcusQuinn
I don't think anyone who watched A&M at UCLA will see a more exciting football game in the NFL regular season. In the NFL teams rarely fall apart. Momentum doesn't swing as drastically or immediately. Your unknown backup NFL QB can't come in and explode in a game or turn a season around. CFB is more...

re: Authorities investigating death at LSU Phi delt house - MarcusQuinn
But when somebody is to the point where they can barely stand, much less walk, the "friends" around him have a responsibility as human beings to, at a minimum, walk him away. If you know a person is no longer capable of making reasonable decisions yet continue to push further, you should bear some l...

re: Tesla flips a switch to increase the range of some cars in Florida to help people evacuate - MarcusQuinn
Tesla was a visionary and philanthropist. Edison was kind of a turd who took advantage of Tesla. And anybody else he could use. Good inventor, great businessman and less than ideal person. Without Tesla and Westinghouse we'd all be using the crappy, expensive, ineffective DC power Edison claimed was...

[quote] I hate this line of thinking. The government should have Zero say what I did to my body. If I want to inject Krocodile into my eyeball I should be able to.
