Mar 28th 2011 9:07AM I think the 2 biggest problems having to with electric cars right now are these:
1- Most of the people don't really care about the ecology. They are more worried about how much things actually cost.
2- Currently, outside of those living in cities and commuting less than 20 miles each way, electric cars are basically too inefficient. The battery technology isn't there to make it worth paying $40+K for a car that can't go any more than 50 miles without using gas.
The bottom line becomes simple, personal economics:
If I'm driving 50 miles each way to work every day, I'm going to have to burn gasoline anyway, so why should I pay twice as much for a smaller car with more to go wrong with it, limited range, and I STILL have to buy gas anyway?
Most people really don't care where the power comes from, or how many it might kill in the future. It's the here and now they are concerned with. That, and how much stuff costs!
Dec 29th 2010 9:17AM "It's possible that their shared disgust at the idea of subjecting their bodies to two more NFL football games every year could be what galvanizes them in the end." -- Yeah, UNLESS it's the playoffs and they're still getting bonus money for playing THEM! I don't get it. 2 less pre-season games and 2 more regular games would appear to be a wash. Guess I need to sustain 2 more concussions before it makes sense!
Nov 30th 2010 10:43AM I think Gruden (and the other 'announcers') should just stay out of teams' issues. I don't care if he has TWENTY SB rings, you are not the HC of this team or the guy in question. If you want to run a team again, then go find one and coach. (OH! And considering the 'man crush' you have on him, maybe you can finally get Brett Favre to QB your team! LOL) The simple fact that Anderson had a melt-down was because that loss really DID bother the crap out of him and he was being hounded by and harped upon by the media a-holes (as usual). People handle adversity in different ways. Maybe him laughing was so he didn't start CRYING! The media doesn't deserve the amount of respect they seem to think they are entitled to.
Nov 23rd 2010 8:39AM People need to stop watching these reality shows. As far as her now being constantly bashed and her life being threatened? OVER DANCING? Just think, exactly WHO is it, or what group thinks they have anything to gain from it and would be doing that? Besides, anyone who watches any of these shows is loses 15 IQ points each time they do. They push for more education and then watch this crap? Instead, try reading a book.
Sep 16th 2010 8:13AM This is why it's so hard to make comparisons, such as "Who is/was the best QB/WR of all time?" There are rules in place now to protect them that weren't there back in (say) the 1960's. Does that make those QBs and WRs tougher? Who knows! But Staubach also probably wasn't getting hit by guys of the same size we have today, either. Chances are that if he took those 313 shots from 6-6 / 330 guys, he'd be sitting in a wheelchair and drooling instead of doing a little trash talking. What's next? Walked to school every day, in the snow, up-hill both ways? LMAO
Aug 18th 2010 7:50AM Last year was last year. I'm sure that TT and Aaron Rodgers are both quaking in their boots over this. Please, stop. Favre didn't beat the Packers (or anyone else) he and his TEAM did! But that's always the problem, the guy became bigger than his team and the game itself YEARS ago. Beating the Packers twice wasn't a big deal for anyone but him and his gan club. I knew all last season that no matter HOW far they got, that it would all come down to him throwing a last minute INT in the conf championship game and giving away all the hard work the Vikes put into their season. I watched it happen over and over since 1998 with Green Bay. At this point, it's all about HIM. (Although the chance to break another record or two and $20M doesn't hurt either!) I figure he's probably going to go down and out, because I doubt his ankle is really ready, which is a shame. But stupid IS as stupid DOES. As a Packers fan, I have more hope for the team now than when HE was in Green Bay.
Aug 5th 2010 8:03AM Wilf was obviously trying to buy a super bowl, and Favre was supposed to be the final piece. The problem with having BF as your QB is that you can't make plans for the future if you are including him. If he DOES retire this year, the Vikings will go back into flux for 2-3 years (unless they luck-out and find a top performing QB). By that time, the vet FAs will be falling off the table and they will have to start all over again. The guy IS an American football icon, but he's made himself bigger than the game by continuing the annual media circus for so many years. Personally, I think he'll come back, but that he won't be able to hold-up for the entire year. That would mean the Vikings tank at the end of the season and then struggle until the new QB gets on the same page. If he wants to retire, FINE! But he should stop dropping little 'media bombs' that say nothing, promise noting and keep the attention on him. Ironman on the field .... media prima-donna in the offseason.
Jul 9th 2010 8:36AM Why not keep going? I can see it all now;
Devil's Tower- nothing but a big rock in the middle of no-where.
Mt Rushmore- is not all that impressive and it's crowded.
The battleship Arizona- since now they say we started the war with Japan, it's not as important.
I thought Wall Drug was a hoot. BOTH time! Yeah, like I'm too stupid to see it's a tourist trap? Like I had NEVER heard the 4-corners was wrong. (Heard about it years ago ... but still went for the heck of it!)
She needs to shut-up and get over herself. Seems to me that all she's doing to bragging about how many places she's been, but why does it sound like so many of the places she went she considers to be worthless? What's with THAT? LOL
Jun 27th 2010 8:24AM People need to get over the whole fascination with hollywood, "reality" shows and singers. Actors aren't anything special. They make believe they're someone else and get paid a lot of money. Their opinions don't mean any more than anyone else's. They are not heroes, they just have fame and money. Most of them seem to be mentally deficient or psychotic. Much like the teaching professionals. They really don't make anything or contribute to the economy in any real sense, but they still think very highly of themselves. ;-)
Jun 19th 2010 8:02AM Didn't Al Gore also once state that he "invented" the internet? LMAO !!
Kids are not automatically smart, but they 'might' turn out smarter. After we bust our butts working just to be able to spend the thousands upon thousands of dollars to educate them, to prepare them for a job that won't even exist. Of course there will also be their utter lack of common-sense aspect to contend with thanks to having been told how to think for all those years! wink wink
