re: Items that must have huge profit margins - Kimist on 5/2/18 at 8:46 pm
They actually spend more on advertising than on R&D. This article is from 2015, but I think it's only gotten worse. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2015/02/11/big-pharmaceutical-companies-are-spending-far-more-on-marketing-than-research/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.3debb2a51932 ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Cops stopping traffic to let church goers in/out. I'm not a fan. - Kimist on 4/29/18 at 4:40 pm
Look, I'm against religion getting special treatment too. I think churches should be taxed. But you're just plain wrong. It benefits us to not have a complete traffic cluster when they let out. Of all the special treatment for religion we have in this country, you pick this?...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Profit/loss for all LSU sports from 2016/2017 came out today - Kimist on 1/31/18 at 11:00 am
[quote]Que the people that don’t understand Title IX. Back when there were only 2 genders and women’s sports were rare, government forced colleges to offer a female athletic scholarship for every male offered. No, LSU has no interest in beach volleyball or women’s soccer, we just have to giv...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Does anyone feel there are only two possible outcomes to the Ed O experiment? - Kimist on 1/21/18 at 2:00 pm
I was against hiring O but once was done, might as well hope for the best. I feel that his on the field coaching was an improvement, which it hardly could not have been. Now, his hiring appears to be at best, hiring the best person that he knows personally, because he doesn't know any better, ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Snow on the ground in all 50 states, climate change is being downgraded - Kimist on 1/18/18 at 7:15 pm
https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/earthtalks-volcanoes-or-humans/ See article above. Volcanoes would emit old carbon. But they account for only about 1% of annual CO2 emissions. Also, volcanic eruptions didn't just start spiking at the beginning of the industrial revolution, did t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Snow on the ground in all 50 states, climate change is being downgraded - Kimist on 1/18/18 at 4:24 pm
It isn't so hard to show that humans are the cause. The global concentration of CO2 has been rising since the industrial revolution. The increase in CO2 has been shown to contain old carbon, i.e. carbon that is old enough that it is depleted of its Carbon 14. That means the rise in CO2 is from bu...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: If Saban hires Freeze SEC is screwed! - Kimist on 1/18/18 at 12:29 pm
I agree with others that it doesn't matter who Saban hires, they will win. They continue to follow a winning plan, while LSU does the opposite. However, as much as I want a powerful offense, and feel we should have hired the best OC we could get, that should not have included Freeze or anyone c...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Needing an elite running back is greatly overrated - Kimist on 1/15/18 at 1:57 pm
[quote]All three of them, O, Aranda, and Ensminger are all best of friends, so coach O is surrounding himself with the two people he trusts and respects the most on his coaching staff to be his coordinators, which is a good thing. O did not trust Canada because Canada went around his back and underm...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Miles worst lingering effects on the program...name them - Kimist on 1/14/18 at 1:28 pm
Miles has a list of faults as long as your arm, but the number one Lingering effect is the inability to attract quality QB's. Miles' desire to run the ball led to QB's not wanting to come here. As good a recruiter as he was in areas, he had an inability to assess good QB's, and develop them. Th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
