    As a Christian, I am always leery of anyone who either claims or is claimed to foretell the future. As a thinking person, I think there is a reason why people do things.

    - First, Q could be an individual or a number of individuals under the same label.
    - Second, assuming Q was telling the public of things about to happen, how did Q know? Is Q involved (do not forget it could be more than one person)? As an aside, consider how tenuous the connections between some of Q’s communiques and events attributed to have been foretold. Also consider foretold events which have not come to pass and should have.
    - Third, what is Q’s desired effect with the postings? What is Q’s purpose or end goal? Manipulation can take very subtle yet effective forms. There are ways of influencing people into action which foreign adversaries (campaigns of influence), private institutions (marketing) and malicious individuals (outright lies in social media) have as tools. Is Q one of these? I do not know.

    For now, I see Q as an internet curiosity just like Cicada 3301 and many others out there. I suggest caution and a healthy dose of critical thinking when reading Q messages until all is revealed.

    There are three cellular providers in Venezuela: Movilnet (run and operated by state owned CANTV); Movistar (owned and operated by Spaniard company Telefonica); and Digitel (owned and operated by the non-publicly traded Grupo Cisneros from Florida). CANTV has the largest subscription since the government keeps prices low. Movistar appears to be the most expensive service provider and popularly believed to be safer from the government’s monitoring. I think the cell infrastructure will stay up until it becomes a liability to the government; i.e. the information they gather from its user’s does not outweigh the positive results opposition groups derive from it’s use. Just look at what the Iranians did with their cell infrastructure as their youth raises against the mullahs. At that point is when you get a sat-phone if there is any available footprint in your part of the world.

    You are absolutely correct. Sessions appears to be gutless and a few House GOP reps pushing for discovery of facts do not guarantee any kind of indictment. I hope I am wrong but I think none of this will ever go to court.

    LOL!

    I would rather risk being squirted with the stinky stuff or tail slapped by my pooch than scratched and yelled at by the cat.

    Last time I gave the cat a bath, I ended up with deep scratches and the neighbors thought I was beating my Bride since the cat sounded like a screaming woman.

    After all, I can wash off whatever the dog produces but the cat inflicts longer lasting pain.

    Good luck with either.

    Good for you.

    I remember being made fun of for studying while friends and roommates went out partying. Years later, the long nights with differential equations, circuits, and phase diagrams more than professionally outweighed what little my friends and roommates might remember from their beer infused so called fun.

    Hang in there, it will be well worth it in the long run.

    Dang, you just reminded me my Bride has a box (big one at that) in the laundry room full of singleton socks accumulated over years after not finding its match. I guess I can do the Great Sock Match of 2018 and see if I can join a few into usable pairs.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Another potential waste of time adverted thanks to the Free Republic.

    Interesting, may have to look into this after I re-read all my old college textbooks. /sarcasm

    As I see, the NFL is a BUSINESS who profits on the ENTERTAINMENT value it produces for its audience. So, to entertain their audience they must present a product which captures and then holds the attention of their intended audience year after year. BTW, they have to periodically retool as generations move through the audience spectrum.

    The NFL does best by attaching the audience’s pride to the entertainment itself; i.e. creating some sense of belonging/attachment between the audience and the cities/teams/players. Reality is, this is all done to fool the audience away from their money by both selling them team merchandise, game tix and the audience’s attention to third party advert companies. Consider how teams move from one city to another, is this not done to maximize profit without regard for the abandoned fan? Fortunately for the NFL, there are many joiner “fans” who just want to feel like winners and will religiously follow a “winning” team/player to which they have no real connection to merely share in the winner’s experience and gain some self validation.

    Now, I like to see competition in any form. The more physical and difficult it is, the more I appreciate it and enjoy it. Yet, I will not compromise my love of country and respect for those who sacrificed their lives for my country just for the sake of being entertained. To me, no form of entertainment is worth ignoring this personal believe. I am old fashioned that way.

    The NFL is dead to me.

    Ok, in the most sober and serious mood, consider this:

    - PV1 manning has no practical experience, education or any background whatsoever which has prepared him to be U.S. Senator. I am a proponent of common citizens being in office to rid us of the professional politician yet this is setting a new low at the bottom of the barrel in terms of skill and preparation.
    - He is being used as a trial balloon. Somebody out there wants to know how far left they can push the DNC. How best to do that than in a solid lefty state with a traitor fresh out of Federal prison (good DNC cred) who is sexually confused and had his sentence commuted by their idol hussein.
    - This guy is not savvy enough to put this all together and seek even more attention (both good and bad). Follow the money and you might find out who convinced this troubled young man to pursue elected office. I am looking at you Soros.

    You are correct, it is just memory. Yet, just as a weapon is an inanimate object which does not kill on its own, it is the human with access to “it” whom I do not trust.

    Direct individualized marketing of the sort which happens after you search for an item in the internet, for example, is annoying yet manageable. It is the large volume of data made up of messages, emails, contacts you have, eBooks you buy, services you support, charities you support, social groups you sympathize with and other seemingly innocuous morsels of information you put in your smartphone/cloud which, when assembled either by humans or algorithms, paint an accurate picture of who you are, without your knowledge or for what purpose, that bothers me.

    These cloud providers may claim privacy, yet there are rouge employees (hello Tw33ter & Fakeb00k) who can either leak the info pro bono, sell it in a mercenary fashion or just allow a third party to hack it for political or criminal purposes. I can see a not too distant future when a political candidate will have his/her personal data leaked from the cloud to handicap them during a campaign; oh wait remember the John C. Ryan 2004 race against Barry? Imagine if a totalitarian government (i.e. China) had access to the cloud information of its enemies? What if data clouds existed in Germany in the late 30’s early 40’s? Future conservatives seeking political office better be “clean” as the wind driven snow or have no “negative” electronic footprint.

    I think nowadays privacy is underestimated and convenience overrated. Call me paranoid; they can keep their cloud.

    Just curious, who at ESPN stated this, when and, more importantly, why would this be the case? I can only assume you say the CFP was horrified with Oklahoma loosing since it meant an all SEC final, yet if I am wrong please correct me. I really do not care much for ESPN or the NCAA football championship process yet your assertion is intriguing.

    Unless you have responses at your finger tips please do not bother to look them up. I really truly am not that interested, just passing intellectual curiosity like many other topics out there which seasonally attract my attention.

    I would add, this was an ESPN wet dream. They likely maximized revenue by having an SEC team at both ends of the Championship bracket.

    I expect ESPN will be shilling for SEC teams again in next pre-season’s rankings to give themselves a better chance at success of cajoling the Bowl committee to have at least two SEC teams in the running again. Particularly since it is nearly impossible to be considered in the National conversation if you do not begin in the top ten in preseason polls.

    Follow the money trail between the SEC and ESPN. ESPN just made up for lost revenue due to its obvious liberal views regarding the NFL, Trump, etc.

    Did not watch the ESPN bowl. Will not until college football champions continue to be subject to popularity contests with broadcast contracts weighing heavily on who participates, unlike how it is in NCAA basketball.

    I have never liked polls/rankings/consensus in sports. If they were worth anything, the USSR should have been given the 1980 Ice Hokey Gold Medal, the Patriots should have been given the Lombardi trophy in 2011, and the 1969 Orioles given the Commissioner’s trophy. Oh, and if you consider politics a sport, Hillary should have been sworn in as President without an election. Sports is about competition, not polls, rankings or consensus. So, since NCAA football does not lend itself for true competition among legitimate contenders for the National Championship then there is no true college football national champion.
