  • World's Tallest Man Finds Love With Woman 2-Plus Feet Shorter

  • 20 Of the Most Obnoxious Quotes From College Professors

    RainMan to Kaslin

    I am currently in the MBA program at the University of Washington, and had my “indoctrination” course over the summer. It certainly was not as bad as any of the above, but it was called “Global and Domestic Economic Conditions” which is fancy speak for Macro Economics.

    In the first class we had a discussion about Kant, Hayek and Friedman, and then the teacher wanted to “prove” something so she wrote on the board a graph, at which point I asked ... doesn’t that graph only recognize Kantian Theory? At this point she admitted she was a Kantian, but promised to try to show all sides.

    Each week we had a quiz (and we were allowed to discuss the quiz with other students before we submitted it). Each quiz had 20 questions, each with 4 options. We were told there was one and only one correct answer for each question. On the very first quiz, I noticed particular wording on a question where there was one answer that was clearly Kantian, and another that took the Monetarist view. I mentioned this to my friend and told him ... well this (monetarist) follows my beliefs, but since the instructor is a Kantian, I bet this is the answer. Sure enough, I was right.

    By the 5th quiz I got into a long heated email exchange with the TA over a particular answer to a particular question where the only way to get it “right” is to assume that a congressional aide would have no idea whether a tax bill were intended to be temporary or permanent (my argument that any bill that is not time limited is by definition permanent, and any bill that is time limited is temporary and will remain temporary unless other legislation is passed to extend it or make it permanent did not sway them).

    I passed the course, but it was the worst grade that I got in the program to date.

    He actually started in a quick mart in New Zealand. He played with computers, and responded to an ad in a magazine by Juniper Networks in a hacking contest. He figured out how to hack a system that had never been successfully hacked before, and they flew him to America and offered him a job and a speaking spot at the biggest industry conference. He was never a black hat.

    The timeline they gave was slightly off ... I was with him when he first started pondering medical devices.

    I had no idea that was the premise ... I go to theatres to escape the heat and see action movies that don’t translate well to TV. So ... I saw WHD. It took about 15 minutes to see that they were going after the conservatives, but it could have been worse. The plot had so many holes however ... in the entire movie there were terrorists in front of and on top of the white house, and not a single sniper took one of them out. The most amusing part however was the presidential limo taking 10 MINUTES of abuse from a minigun (does it EVER run out of ammo), including hitting glass, and not penetrating.

    I bought a new machine with Win 8 preloaded (Lenovo Twist) and found the biggest problem is that Win 8 needs exceptional power behind it or it crashes regularly. My machine has an i5 processor and 4 GB RAM, and I have to reboot 5 times a day because something stops working ... and on Win 8, it is weird because when something stops (like hyperlinks) working, there are NO error messages ... it just sits there letting me click away but doing nothing. Win 8 is the new Vista, but that may be too mean to Vista. Win 8 is the new Win ME.

    I will answer the middle question, because how anyone responds to the middle answer determines how they will answer the other two.

    Why are we here?

    This is a test, and this is only a test. The test is whether you can believe in a God that you cannot visually see, physically touch, or audibly hear. God wants mankind’s unconditional love, but because of the lack of physical attributes AS THEY DEEM THEM, many deny his existence. Jesus spoke to Thomas (doubting Thomas) about how he needed to see the wounds to believe. If you believe, then the answer to the first question is that you came from the creation of God, and last questions would be that you will spend Eternity with him in Heaven. If you fail the test, then who knows where you came from ... you can only guess, and many of us know where you are going, but you certainly do not.

    I was complaining about it to my wife as well, and we stopped watching after the first episode. My beef with it was simply this ... God is written out of most scenes. They reduced the Bible from the word of God to a preposterous story with bad casting and bad acting. I felt this would do serious damage to evangelizing to young people because after watching this, they would simply say ... what’s the big deal.

    No real creation story (other than Noah telling it)
    The ark leaked
    Most of God talking to people was inaudible
    Nothing about Abram and Melchizedek.
    Sarah was not a looker - nothing about being kidnapped 2x.
    In this show, Sarah was about 50-55 when she gave Hagar to Abram, still about 50-55 when she had Issac.
    The people of Sodom and Gomorrah were not homosexuals, Lot did not offer his daughters.
    The ninja angels were just silly.
    Ishmael looked to be about 10 when he and Hagar kicked out
    Nothing about Issac’s life
    No Jacob at all
    No 12 tribes, Joseph, Coat, Egypt, saving the people from famine, brothers ending up in Egypt.
    Each plague got less than a second of air time.
    The future pharaoh figured out Moses killed the guard
    Aaron did not speak for Moses
    Did not turn the staff to a snake
    Pharaoh did not call for the plague that lead to the death of his own son.
    Joshua was Moses right hand man before they left Egypt. But no Caleb.
    No cloud by day, pillar of fire by night
    They did not even digitally image people to show the size of the nation of Israel that left Egypt. You would think it was less than 1000 people.

  • Toothy Spiral Jaw Gave Ancient Sea Predator an Edge

    RainMan to cuban leaf

    My thoughts exactly. In fact, to take it a step farther ... if evolution “works”, then first you have to reconcile how the mutation occurred in the first place. Supposedly this mutation made life better for progeny, yet they went extinct. If life was getting tougher generation by generation, per evolution, this should have bred OUT of the species. To reach a point of collapse of ANY species is an argument of failure for evolution. I love how this article ends by saying how this awesome killing machine probably lived on squid .... and that makes sense ... there would be NO leverage on a jaw like that to rip or tear anything of substance ... in fact it would be just the opposite. Take on anything with a thick skin and it could snap your jaw off if it swam away.

    Because my boy is on the ship. They actually deployed 2 weeks ago then returned Monday. That alone was very weird. We spoke yesterday AM, and at that time he expected to be restarting the deployment on Friday. They already have the air wing on the ship, so you don’t “delay” with the planes on board. Now they will have to go back out to sea just so they can fly the planes back off the boat ... and no, they will not just let the planes sit there. When the ship is in port, the planes are on land. This is absolutely non-trivial, but like most things, it is being ignored in the media.

    That is not true. If you had said

    “No effective LEGAL preemption has ever been devised to keep an idiot from taking to a microphone” I would agree with you, however history (even American history) is replete with peoples rights to free speech being denied through threats and initimidation, arrest and being held as long as possible until charges need to be filed, “accidents” and outright assasinations.

    Let me make it clear that I do not condone any of these methods, because I find them as heinous as the idiot taking the microphone. Silencing political foes is an art form in most communist nations, and our desire to protect and maintain freedom of speech, no matter how offensive, is one of the primary reasons America has been the bastion of freedom to the world.

  • Highly Biased Praise for Atlas II

    RainMan to Shout Bits

    Mrs Rainman and I saw Atlas II on Saturday, and we are outside of Seattle. Told her it was probably a good thing we saw it opening weekend because I doubt it will still be in theatres next week. It was a good production of the middle part of Atlas, but even without reviews the theatre was empty for the 5PM Saturday show. I counted 10 souls ...

    In regards to the movie itself ... yes, it was an improvement over Atlas I, yes, the special effects were pretty lame (how can the same jet pull away from you around every corner then you are suddenly within 100 feet of it again on EVERY shot until it goes thru the mirage ... then it cannot be found?) ... the dialog was actually pretty good ... a little corny but at least plausible ... but the worst part was character development.

    Unless you had read the book, characters appearing out of nowhere with no clue as to thier significance then disappearing just as suddenly. Best example of this is the sequence of James going into the drug store, meeting Cherryl for the first time, inviting her into his limo ... next scene, James and Cherryl at the concert where the artist disappeared before the encore, next scene, Lillian insisting Hank go to James wedding and him not wanting to, then the wedding scene where Cherryl tells Dagny that she is on to her and going to protect James because she was the woman of the Taggart family now and Dagny saying thats OK because she was the man ... then Cherryl was gone the rest of the movie. Entire sequence ... 2 minutes tops.

    If you are an Atlas fan ... definitly go see it, but as I said, it will probably be out of theatres in a week.

  • NFL supports decision to not overturn Seahawks’ touchdown

    09/27/2012 4:04:42 PM PDT · 106 of 107
    RainMan to VideoDoctor
    Polling to determine who is right is a liberal tactic when facts and rules go against you. See Global Warming and Triangulation (Bill Clinton).

    If you want a full explanation, here is a link to an article, but here is the salient part:

    http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcwest/post/_/id/76194/thoughts-as-nfl-announces-officials-return-2
    The NFL's statement on the play notes that "a player (or players) jumping in the air has not legally gained possession of the ball until he satisfies the elements of a catch."

    Those elements are satisfied when a player: •"Secures control of the ball in his hands or arms prior to the ball touching the ground." Note the plural. Hands or arms. Not hand or arm. Is that a meaningful distinction, or semantics?

    •"Touches the ground inbounds with both feet or any body part other than his hands." Tate did this before Jennings did this, but did he have the ball?

    •"Maintains control of the ball long enough to perform any act common to the game (i.e., maintaining control long enough to pitch it, pass it, advance with it or avoid or ward off an opponent, etc.)."

    The league also cited the rule governing a simultaneous catch.

    "If a pass is caught simultaneously by two eligible opponents, and both players retain it, the ball belongs to the passers," the rule reads. "It is not a simultaneous catch if a player gains control first and an opponent subsequently gains joint control."


    Now, if you go to the part about maintaining the ball long enough to perform any act common to the game, you can clearly see NEITHER party had sole possession, but it was indeed caught, therefore it was a SIMULTANEOUS catch, regardless of what 97% of those polled FEEL.

    Finally, footage shot from the reverse angle by local tv station KCPQ shows Tate may indeed have had more posession than Jennings as they came down, but you probably cant be bothered with silly things like evidence.

    If you want to insult me, you might want to actually present an arguement next time, because you fight like a liberal ... and unlike you, I pointed out what you did that was liberalesque.

    RainMan to VideoDoctor

    Well, you must be a Packers fan.

    99% of the time, a ball batted down will be incomplete ... yes, occasionally it will end up being caught, but the odds are strong that it will fall incomplete.

    100% of the time a simultaneous catch goes to the offense. It has to be clear and incontrovertable that the ball was intercepted ... which historically has meant that no part of the offensive players hands are touching the ball.

    You must be a democrat sore loser, because you seem to want to change the rules because you lost the game. Just like in politics, bad cases make bad case law. Changing the rules so the Packers would have an interception is what would have been a real travesty. The ruling on the field was correct by the standards of football since the forward pass was invented.

    RainMan to freedumb2003

    While both players were still in mid-air, Tates left arm was between Jennings chest and the ball. Tates right arm was outside both Jennings arms, but still on the ball. Possession requires being on the ground and in control. By the time they were on the ground and in control, it was still being held by both men. The fact that Jennings was holding Tate to the ball is part of the fact that it was a simultaneous catch. Jennings even tried to roll away from Tate to take sole possession, but because he was trapping Tate to the ball all he did was prove that Tate was still attached to the ball. That is a simultaneous catch, and that ALWAYS goes to the offense.

    Now, if Jennings had batted the ball away, GB would have won, but because he screwed up and tried to have an interception, Seattle won. Most are blaming the refs for a bad call, but the call was the right one. The loss is Jennings fault.

    09/04/2012 12:54:51 PM PDT · 97 of 98
    RainMan to Girlene

    The reason ... as a recap ... was that Jackson and Sharpton have historically played the race card in a “you owe me because I am black” context, whereas Obama has been the non-threatening black man who kept silent about his race as a reason to vote for him. Go back to 2008, and how was it that Joe Biden referred to him? “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

    What has changed in the last 4 years is that Obama is now using the politics of class warfare, but you notice he still has not played the race card directly ... he is letting his proxies do that by calling anyone who disagrees with him a racist. I think the public is getting it however ... Obama’s refusal to denounce his proxies is tantamount to agreement, and people are starting to see him as complicit in racial politics.

    I live up here near the Peoples Republic of Seattle. My mother (also a freeper) saw it Wednesday at a matinee, and she loved it, but noted there were only 12 in the theatre. I saw it Thursday at a 4:40 showing and there were only 13 of us in our theatre. Mrs Rainman made the comment that it was a great movie, but how is it going to impact people if everyone who saw was not going to vote for Obama anyway.

    Very good movie for a documentary. Mrs Rainman and I had a real interesting conversation about Colonialism after we saw it, and what I pointed out to her is that now she can talk more intelligently to people about Obama’s agenda when it comes up ... thereby affecting people that did not see it ... and also we can now better predict what Obama can do in a particular situation now that we have a new theory on his ideology.

This is going to drive us back towards much bigger dishes, because a 60% signal quality simply wont cut it.

    RainMan to CORedneck

    The USADA did not confer the TdF titles, but they are demanding they be repealed, along with every other title Lance has won. If they (the US and World ADA’s) they would simply test for banned substances, do investigations when necessary, and submit thier findings to governing bodies and let the governing bodies determine the proper course of action. Thier job is to be the impartial lab. Instead, they want to be the judge, jury, and executioner, determining the punishment and forcing it to be enforced ... which is why I detest them so much. Imagine if a grand jury took it upon themselves not to just find cause for prosecution, but to pre-try, find guilt, and then insist on the death penalty. Why have trials?

    To those who feel Lance should have kept fighting because he can afford it ... no, he could not. To fight it would be a never ending battle that he could never win, which would prevent him from getting on with his life, raising money for cancer and which would ultimatly run him broke. Take a very long, hard look at how Contador was treated ... and the logic of thier 2 year ban when it was clear that his positive test was accidental, and at such low levels it could not possibly enhance performance, and then try to explain how this group is fair or logical in any sense of the word. Now, show one solid piece of evidence that Lance EVER failed a single drug test ... you cant. The only evidence they have against him is testimony of others. So, if he was doing what they said, how come the tests did not find it? Yes, Lance has enemies ... there are those that absolutely hate him for what he accomplished, and will go to any lengths to destroy his reputation. The ADA’s are filled with his enemies, and thier sympathizers.

Throw out baseless accusations by nameless accusers, hold “trial” in a closed kangaroo court where normal rules do not apply, and judges are not subject to any actual law or factual evidence. What overwhelming factual evidence does exist (600+ negative tests with no positives) is ignored, then declare him guilty of all charges when he refuses to participate ... oh, and have his title stripped by a body that does not rule the event that actually conferred it. I also like the part about how he is supposed to return all the money he won as well ...

    Substance abuse and performance enhancing drugs is a problem, but the USADA and World ADA is a joke, except jokes are funny. Ask Alberto Contador. The USADA is a vicious quasi-governmental repository for scum that cannot compete on the playing field so they want to eliminate the true champions so that lesser atheletes can win. Any funding they are getting, public or private, should be pulled permanently.

    I think Joe was being sent there to become a martyr. I think the plan was to divert LEO from the RNC, then OWS would stage some false flag attacks (see stories on the protesters caught with BB guns on rooftops in Tampa today) that would divert LEO from Biden, who would then be taken out by a real sniper. Blame would be placed on gun-toting zealots which would amp up the drive to ban guns, and a spot on the ticket would be made available for Hillary to step into at the DNC. However ... LEO’s have found several rooftops where it was apparant attacks were going to come from, and have now found 2 who planned to be perps, and we know what thier political leanings are ... so the Biden martyr scenario became one that would have been a lot harder to sell to the public, and the gun outcry would have been even harder if it could have ever been proven a setup. With the plan falling apart ... no sense sending slo-Joe to speak and possibly say anything else stupid when the RNC will have a national platform to denounce his stupidity within minutes.

    I think having Palin pushing the Biden removal from the ticket false flag was a friggin stroke of genius ... whomever came up with that one is GREAT because it really really boxed Obama into keeping Joe on the ticket.

    My wife got a push poll for Obama on the telephone yesterday. They were stunned when they could not convince her that Obama deserved four more years ... and we are in WA.
