re: If not from bama or auburn, please shut up this week. - Mr. Misanthrope
Auburn by 7 but looses to rematch to Georgia in SECC. Miami wins Natty and Mark Richt is coach of the year in the triumph of irony. Sound about right?...

re: Only #20 - Mr. Misanthrope
Answer is Troy but 20 does seem like that loss is being counted for all it's worth and then some. I thought 16-18 was reasonable. Possibly 15. The reasoning seem at times arcane even occult. Miss State drubs us. Auburn spanks them and we come from behind to beat Auburn. Where are those games in calc...

re: Sporting News breaks down Ala's near breakdown, and notes Aub should be feared - Mr. Misanthrope
Not getting your points or Sporting News's. Chaos was averted because Alabama won a tough conference game against State on the heels of a physically tough game against LSU the Saturday before. They're ranked 1 because they won under those circumstances not because Georgia lost. Injuries to li...

re: When should Christmas decorations go up? - Mr. Misanthrope
For us, it's always the Fourth Sunday in Advent. Later sometimes but not earlier. They come down on Epiphany. I guess technically Christmas season starts on Christmas day but the alter colors don't change from Advent purple to Christmas white until Christmas Day and doesn't change again (to green) ...

ATT can give me "up to" 3 Mbps. Other than soup cans linked with waxed strings or smoke signals or drumming on ho...

re: Hurricane Irma - Spinning Down - Mr. Misanthrope
[quote]Using the EF tornado scale, 200 MPH sustained winds is right at the borderline for an EF5.[/quote] The EF scale at times seems a bit confusing to me being a wind estimate based on various degrees of damage to various kinds of structures. It looks like it sort of incorporates the original w...

re: Hurricane Irma - Spinning Down - Mr. Misanthrope
Last I saw it was 185 MPH. But with continued pressure dropping 200 seems possible, even probable. I am amazed at the models that picked up the extreme deepening and commensurate increase in wind speed. ...

re: Hurricane Irma - Spinning Down - Mr. Misanthrope
With a + 25-30% gust factor added to sustained winds at 200 MPH you're looking at gusts of around 260 MPH. Flirting with F-3/4 tornado classification. ...
