    Favorite songs from the 90s?

    Helmets version was better Guns N' Roses was not really metal, but kind of get your point. After the early 90s there wasn't a whole lot of good metal, and the format pretty much went as far as it could. It was telling when MTV cancelled Headbangers Ball in 1996

    I don't think you can say Britney Spears and boy bands displaced alternative rock. The radio stations that played Smashing Pumpkins were not the same that played Britney Spears and 98 Degrees. And the people who listened to both, or at least were big fans of both, were rare. What displaced alternative was the whole pop-punk craze (Blink 182, Fountains of Wayne, etc.), pop-rock bands like Third Eye Blind, and to some extent nu metal (Korn, Limp Bizkit, Godsmack, etc.) Modern rock was pretty much dead by the early 2000s - its telling that HFS switched formats to Spanish music in 2002 I believe

    The airline experience has become miserable

    First class is like 3x more expensive than economy/coach. Would you also ask someone in a wheelchair to pay extra?

    Being tall should be in the same category as being disabled - they should not have to pay extra because they have inherent disadvantage. Perhaps there should be special seats for taller folk.
  5. I'm just going to take a wild stab that you never played competitive sports beyond maybe high school JV
  6. Good ending to Dallas/LA. LA couldn't stop the run. Also Dallas RB (Artis-Payne I think) actually should not have walked in for the TD - a first down would have ended the game. But whatever.
  7. Hypothetical : XFL team vs. good college team(maybe not BCS team, but lets say top 15), who wins?
  8. A high school player could have picked that one off.
  9. Two nice throws by Cardale Jones, two drops by Defenders receivers
  10. First away game is against the Athletics. I'm strongly leaning towards witnessing the warm welcome Oakland is sure to give the first Astros batter, live.

    Poll: Should Pete Rose be Reinstated to MLB?

    I'm on the same page - if they put Rose in after he checks out, fine with me. But no way I would put him in while still alive, unless his attitude changes and he owns up to what he did. And thats probably not going to happen.

    Poll: Should Pete Rose be Reinstated to MLB?

    I used to support Rose being reinstated. Then I saw that recent 60 Minutes interview. He remains totally unrepentant and combative about what he did. So screw him. Edit: it wasn't 60 minutes, it was an interview with Don Von Natta on ESPN. I hadn't actually paid much attention in the past or heard Rose in an interview before, but after that I came away thinking pretty much Rose was basically an ass, and more than that, he just didn't get it. I don't want someone like that being reinstated.
  13. We generally can't control anything that is airborne that we don't have a vaccine for, and even some airborne illnesses with vaccines we can't control because they keep mutating, such as influenza. Another good example is Tuberculosis. I tested positive for it 20 years ago along with a family member. Luckily it never advanced so now it is "latent" It is estimated a quarter of the world has TB including active and latent cases. Kills about 1.7 million/year https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuberculosis

    Does having a million dollars still qualify as rich?

    If you have a million cash AND own a home free and cleat, I would say yes
