  1. 2017 - 18 Washington Capitals Thread

    That Vrana goal... wow.
  2. Movie characters you can't stand

    I'm strongly on Predicto's side re: Roadhouse. It is the worst of the worst. That said, I think it is awfully fun to watch, just to revel in the badness. It deserves a MST3K special. Also, this might be the worst thing ever. EVER.
  3. Movie characters you can't stand

    Ferris Bueller - annoying little brat who abuses his friends and is basically a jerk to everyone he meets. William Wallace in braveheart. Just not believable. Can’t not see drunk racist nazi sympathizer. Arbogast from Psycho. The detective. The movie is basically perfect in every way except when he starts his rambling soliloquies. Takes me out of it every time.
  4. Mass Shooting on the Las Vegas Strip

    Of all the dumb and insulting things I’ve read on here, this might be the one that makes me angriest. My schools and my teachers made me the person I am today. My high school biology teacher taught me the basics of genetics and biology and inspired an interest and passion for the subject that still drives me today. My high school English teacher taught me rigor and demanded excellence in my writing – I still hear his lessons in my head every time I am writing a scientific paper today. My college film studies teacher taught me how to look at evidence critically and how to argue for novel hypotheses in ways that I still use today. My medical school teachers gave me the foundational understanding of human biology and medicine that I use every day to inform the choices I make with my patients. My residency and fellowship advisors and mentors helped me make connections and colleagues at universities around the world that I use to advance research and help discover new diseases. It didn't take 12 years for me to learn the math and science I use today to make new genetic discoveries. It took 30 years. I am continuing to learn today. It takes rigor and dedication and an open mind. My teachers gave me the tools that allow me to continuously learn and make progress. I now work at an excellent hospital and am frequently involved in life-saving medical care and new disease discovery. I have a remarkably rewarding job that I cherish. I am a fairly resourceful and intelligent person who grew up with wonderful, encouraging parents. I am certain that I could never have achieved any of this without wonderful schools and teachers and mentors that made me who I am. A person can become a useless internet troll without school. A person cannot become a valuable and contributing member of society without it.
  5. Alex Smith Trade Thread (Details Inside)

    And now KC is trading Marcus Peters for a haul of draft picks. They know they got a stud in Fuller... http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/22556460/los-angeles-rams-agree-trade-kansas-city-chiefs-cornerback-marcus-peters
  6. Mass Shooting on the Las Vegas Strip

    Kids getting slaughtered = "a reprieve." That may be the most morally degenerate and hopeless statement yet from this white house. And that's really saying something.
  7. He spent 6 minutes at the hospital. Then went golfing. Leadership.
  8. Greatest American Athlete

    I thnk Wilt deserves mention, since we're talking physical freaks. He's also in the volleyball HOF... Probably not the greatest, but in the Bo/Jim Brown category.
  9. The XXIII Olympic Winter Games In PyeongChang

    It was horrific. A terrible duet version. Earlier, some pair used a terrible version of "hallelujah." The North Korean team used a instrumental weird version of the beatles "Day in the life." My wife and I have a list of most likely next song victims and a mini pool going. Its hilarious and makes this watchable.
  10. The XXIII Olympic Winter Games In PyeongChang

    Pairs skating is mesmerizing, just to see how badly they are going to butcher great songs. The music selections never fail to amaze me.
  11. Wow. That guy makes Roy Moore look normal. And Roy Moore is craaaaaaaazy.
  12. Xbox One Vs Ps4

    I'd agree about Horizon Zero Dawn. It is a remarkable game. Great world-building, combat that is just the right amount of challenge, great story, beautiful to look at. It's fabulous.
  13. This is a stunner of a quote. This guy Shah is speaking for the POTUS. I don't think he means it.
  14. Best line about Stephen Miller (from SNL): "He looks like he has a sex doll named Mother."
  15. Share those pics part 2

    I'm in Phoenix for two weeks for work, so spending as much time as possible seeing cool SW birds...
