Not any more. We've had too many injuries and our defensive line looks normal. We'll be lucky to get past Auburn, much less a Georgia with something to prove.

Imagine last year's Clemson losing Watson right before the conference championships. That. Still above average, but no longer scary.

Bill Nye was pretty fun on Almost Life as guys like Speed Walker, but that's pretty much it. I didn't grow up as part of the generation seeing him as the modern Mr Wizard so I have no emotional attachment to the guy.

107 So, Menendez trial is going to be mistrial. The retrial will cost the taxpayers millions and, of course, if (that is a HUGE fat hairy IF) he is eventually convicted, there will be a Dem gov in charge at that point to name the replacement.

Hmm, wonder who appointed that judge, you ask? Ol' Billy Boy.

Makes me wonder what the hell we could accomplish if the NeverTrump pantywaist portion of our party could have girded their loins for just 2 years while they did Trump and the people's work.

One thing on this- anyone 'can' be a scientist. If you follow the rules for experimentation and submission of work for review by your peers- you are a scientist.

A lot of this is bogged down by funding, accreditation, facilities, resources, etc, but the bare bones are those.

My problem with Mr Nye is not that he wants to call himself a scientist, but rather that he just wants to use the title like a cheap date to gain prestige and authority for making pronouncements that he has never studied himself in any great depth. The mere title is what he is using for authority to speak in any and all matters. That's just silly.

120 97 Can somebody fill me on on what happened with Bill Nye because the link is unreadable
Posted by: FenelonSpoke


I think what happened is that he agreed to do a thing on Reddit called "Ask Me Anything," in which minor celebrities answer questions from any and all comers in real time on a Reddit thread. What he failed to realize is that Reddit (like much of the Internet) has a huge contingent of Nye-haters who think he's full of shit, so many of them came on the thread and asked him devastating questions dismantling his ludicrous "cilmate change" claims, question which he could not answer. Thus he was deemed "destroyed" on the AMA thread by the questioners.

121 If Bill Nye was competent and ethical scientist, he would note the lack of actual science in the religion of global warming.

Plenty of data out there to disprove it. Plus the 2001-2003 peer reviewed papers are all wrong with their predictions.

The actions of those in power is to increase their power, fund their friends, siphon money from the pockets of the powerless, and not carry out actual actions that would stop a real global warming.

Sure, in theory, but in practice, not so much. Wealthy gentlemen natural philosophers made some of the great scientific discoveries, but that was in an era when it was not laughable to claim that you'd read every book that had been published.

Nowadays to actually be a scientist, as a practical matter it's pretty inescapable that you need extensive training to get up to speed on where fields stand now. Further, to be a practicing scientist, you need extensive training in how to do research. Attempts by first year grad students to do research are invariably laughable. Only by about their third year in grad school do students start producing worthwhile research results. Up to that time, they're pretty much stepping on their neck ties in the lab.

A central task of a thesis advisor is drubbing the scientific method into grad students, and beating the temptation to play hunches, etc. out of them. That takes years for virtually everyone; some never get it.

We didn't make the rules. We were holding ACTUAL perverts accountable (Clinton, Weiner, Etc.). We didn't make up allegations to ruin people's livelihoods. Buuut, these are the rules now. If you are a Dem running for anything, you ought to expect to have your entire character trashed, whether it is true or not.

I say start with McCauliff in VA and cut off his 2020 vision at the knees. He is dirtier than a worm and there has got to be someone capable of putting together a fake story, if not a real one, of him being a pervert. Send the message now.

Witches were -- are -- the old hags who no longer give a damn. They are the "crazy" women who keep talking even after no one wants to have sex with them anymore. They are the nasty women who don't give in to men. It's no surprise Hillary Clinton is often caricatured as a witch. So is Nancy Pelosi. So is Maxine Waters.

This is something Woody Allen, who married his former lover's adopted daughter, stands accused of molesting his adopted daughter (an accusation he denies) and is still a beloved filmmaker, might know something about. Ditto Roman Polanski, who remains feted by the entertainment industry despite his decision to rape a child, and Bill Cosby, who, accused of a decadeslong habit of allegedly drugging and assaulting women, finally was excised from the Hollywood A-list. Bill Cosby, too, has seen fans claim that he is being victimized by "witch hunts."

How does he sleep at night knowing the terrible terrible no good horrible simply awful thing he did to her?

You're absolutely right. Some people have the facility to become scientists. Many do not. It is not uncommon to encounter people with Ph.D.s in the sciences who are not scientists at all, and have no ability whatsoever as scientists.

Conversely, it is also not uncommon to encounter people who are not scientists, but who have the native thought processes to be one. Auto mechanics and electricians come to mind in this connection.

You start with the right mindset, true, but it definitely takes much more than that. It takes discipline and actually forcing yourself, by boring repetition, how to conduct experimentation. And then spotting the design flaws, acknowledging mistakes, and respecting critical review. One can conduct "science" but that doesn't make one a scientist, much less a good one.

And that's the rub WRT this Nye in particular. He is out of his league but refuses to acknowledge that. He wants to be known as expert in a field because that's his meal ticket; he simply isn't. And he needs the cloak of a lab coat to announce what he isn't because he must manipulate the audience beforehand. It's a clever trick but a trick nonetheless. He hasn't practiced actual science perhaps ever. He may - MAY - read scientific journals selectively. That counts for diddly squat.

I think Moron Robbie's point is that the sexual ideal of nearly everybody male is somebody right on the cusp of 19, and that anybody who harrumphs that Moore finding that desirable is wrong is a dowdy hypocrite and liar.

More that practiced ethics (having age limits set for oneself, considering an age gap to be culturally skeevy) is the basis for anybody pretending offense, not any matter of biology - as would be the case for an actual pedophile or other sex offender.

Which comments typically elicit a stunned, deer-in-the-headlights expression in the student, who swallows hard, packs up his shit and leaves to go do what he should've done the first time.

Eventually they internalize the dialogue and the thought processes, and you can't catch them out easily any more. That's when you know they're on their way.

If they get the message that money doesn't matter anymore with the electorate, then they know they are well and truly screwed. The organized parties simply cannot afford such a development. This cannot be overstated. If money won't move an electorate, politics in America will be profoundly altered and true democracy might emerge. Statists, globalists, and our criminal political class cannot - cannot! - let this happen.

He pushed her against a hallway wall in a restaurant and got right up against her, body to body, and asked her to meet him later at a particular spot for sex.

She was probably 19 at the time. It's a family joke now, and her parents both voted for Clinton. I suppose she will get front page treatment in the Post and an Allred moment?

Aaaaand this is a load of crap.

Here's the thing about morality. It is a mostly learned state of affairs. The rate at which this country grows up its boys is staggeringly slow.

Heaven forbid someone should learn something during his lifetime. We still must haul out every little thing that ever happened during his lifetime and crucify him for it.

How perfectly Protestant.

This is why Catholicism has confession and forgiveness. One is allowed to learn a thing or two in life and NOT have every little issue come back to bit one in the ass. There is temporal punishment for sin, but it is expiated.

The idea that one will always be responsible for silliness is just plain stupid, and does nothing to further the moral and intellectual life of human beings.

The idea that one will always be responsible for silliness is just
plain stupid, and does nothing to further the moral and intellectual
life of human beings.

331 When I was 36 I had this 19 year old "groupie" who worked in the same building for a different company. This was back in the old AOL days. One day she sexted me a nude picture and one thing led to another.

Funniest thing was, the whole time we were en flagrento I kept thinking, enjoy it now buster, because this has GOT to be your last time ever with a teen, and you were lucky to get this one. And it was.

She joined the armed forces shortly after. It was a fling thing for her before leaving.

332 How perfectly Protestant.

its okay, a lot of protestants believe dumb stuff about Roman Catholics too. Hint: forgiveness is a key and central theme in all Christianity.

336 Either way this turns out, it sets up a leftist theme.

1) Moore loses and they trot out old lies for pay every time a Republican who strays off the plantation runs
2) Moore wins and they claim its a consistent pattern of molesting scumbags with Trump and Moore.

Plus, this helps take some of the sting off the endless parade of leftist activists and politicians being busted doing ghastly, evil crap.

337 Protestantism has confession and forgiveness. We do it every week in church in the church I serve. We just don't have it as a Sacrament and we don't have to confess to a priest. I'm not wanting to get in a religious argument over the superiority of RC vs. Protestantism or vive versa, just noting this. :^)

341 So this new accuser says Moore groped her in his car when she was 16, in 1977, and tried to force her head into his lap.

So why did she wait 40 years before saying anything? Moore has been a public figure for many years in AL.

She was okay with her "almost rapist" being on the AL Supreme Court -- twice -- but she draws the line at him being in the Senate?

343 And in fact, many people of faith who happen to be Protestant take time in the morning and/or evening devotions to do a sort of Protestant version of the Ignatius examen of conscience(Is that the proper term?) In, for instance a method of prayer called by the ACTS acronym we do it as in

A-Adoration and Thanksgiving

C-Confession

T-Thanksgiving

S-Supplication

345 A further word to tcn in AK: I wish to point out that regardless of how much confessing one does, it is rare for a person
to change completely, or be forever rid of their peculiar weaknesses, especially in matters of sexual preferences.



I
like all kinds of girls. In particular, though, I've a weakness for
redheads and raven-haired girls. Strawberry blonde, ginger, red dye,
shiny black, slightly bluish black, don't care, it's like a
gunshot to me, no defenses whatsoever. This has been true of me since I
was old enough to realize that girls were awesome, and will be the
truth about me for eternity.


Likewise, a person who is
sexually deviant - i.e., a pedophile, has things they like and find
attractive. They are wicked, but those desires are there. One
can forgive the person - and still not trust them around children. A
pious man or woman, despite forgiving a repentant pedophile, would be a
damned fool to permit them unfettered access to their young children.



We are not God and can never truly know someone else's
heart. Therefore, absolute trust is impossible. When an individual has
been a danger in some important matter before - thievery, murder, child
molestation, pick a sin - forgiveness is of course not only good, but
required... but temporal consequences remain. O.o Some go
away quickly. Some
you live with your entire life. This is simply the way of things in our
life here on Earth, and it will be so 'til Christ returns.

The first couple of years of Almost Live! were hysterical, before the original lead host left for Hollywood to be a (failed) late-nite talk show host.

Driving in Ballard (and Ballard Driving School) is funny 'cause it's true.

351 I am glad I am not an Alabama voter.

I'm sure with many of those people the understandable desire to stick it to the stinking Dems and their media lackeys is very strong - and at war with the Christian consciences that say "What if he really did do this stuff?"

I have to say, I wasn't impressed with Moore's interview on Hannity. You'd think a judge (and therefore a lawyer) would better at making his own case.

But the timing of this - that's no accident and I hate the idea of handing the D's a victory.

352 Evening all.

Moore is getting railroaded & I smell skank-ass Mock McTurtle soup, with an extra dusting of Graham crackers, topped with fake McStain yellow cheese from the can.

Moore's accuser is quoted in the Washington Compost that she talked to Moore on her bedroom phone - yet her mother says no such bedroom phone existed, as reported by Breitbart - confirmed by her mother on Saturday.

It appears the "victim" dreamed all this baloney up either recently or at age 14 - but instead of Moore, originally her predator of choice was probably Keith ' dreamy ' Partridge aka DAVID CASSIDY;-)

Bill High the fake science guy is a worm hole stoner.
