  1. Government funds an incredible amount of private companies. You, and your ilk, tend to focus on one company when drawing attention to public funding. It is quite impressive confirmation bias. Let's just look at the privatization of the space. Who is funding those companies? "SpaceX received millions from the Air Force for development of the Raptor engine through an OTA (Other Transaction Agreement). However, so did Orbital ATK, Aerojet Rocketdyne, and United Launch Alliance. On Jan 13, 2016, SpaceX was granted $33.6 million, Orbital ATK $46.9 million. On February 29, 2016, under the same OTA, Aerojet Rocketdyne was awarded $115.3 million, and ULA $46.6 million. Oct 19, 2017, SpaceX’s award under that OTA was increased by another $16.9 million." How about Tesla -- that are pretty good success story, no? https://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-hy-musk-subsidies-20150531-story.html ..but sure... keep harping on a failed company without recognizing how funding new technologies benefits us all. And the only reason we have to back door public money into private industry is because of your kind absolutely hating everything government and wanting to reject anything it may do.
  2. So how can a study from nearly 50 years be wrong?! Science is always right! I guess in your world science is a religion... that has all the answers. When reality science is living and constantly collecting and analyzing data. New technologies, new research, new avenues all open and and allow for more peer review on studies. But to that end, here is what the author of the original 1975 article has to say: https://www.insidescience.org/news/my-1975-cooling-world-story-doesnt-make-todays-climate-scientists-wrong
  3. It's really disappointing. I do think it is a learning experience ... not a throw the baby out with the bath water situation.
  4. Reminds me of this: How to Become TripAdvisor's #1 Fake Restaurant - YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqPARIKHbN8 Texas Monthly and D Magazine just came out with their lists and Tender was not even on the scene.
  5. @greenminer - Truth be told, my damn phone auto-filled glorying while I was swiping 'glorifying'. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ This isn't a gerund. However, a present participle is a verb form ending in 'ing' and is being used as a verb. So it does seem to be the accidental present participle.
  6. glo·ry /ˈɡlôrē/ verb gerund or present participle: glorying Well.. even according to their own site, it says "While it was a decision based in rivalry and fun, the choice of a Confederate-themed mascot was nonetheless an unfortunate one." So.. looks like they even regret it. As their official history of their mascot, they have all but erased all the Confederacy imagery. https://www.unlv.edu/campuslife/mascot-nickname As far as I've ever learned, Nevada was never a part of the Confederacy. They don't abide by heritage not hate and bogus State's rights claims.. so they are more of a character than a political statement and fandom of southern living. Glorying.
  7. TIL: Not glorying the loser of a racist war is PC.

  9. How much confidence do you have in RB Jeff Wilson Jr. carrying the ball in that final drive considering his history of fumbling the last two games, also today in the first half? “It was tough, especially how it’s gone since he’s been in and what happened today, but [RB Matt] Breida went out on that last drive, so you don’t have much of a choice with it and now that he went in and the way he finished running and the fact that he did hold on to the ball, it was great to him. When he started off that fumble early, then dropped a screen pass, we were going to keep Breida in as much as possible. Then Jeff went in at the end because Breida got hurt and it was awesome the way it ended because now that should give him some confidence and make him ready to get out next week.” From their HC press conference: https://www.ninersnation.com/2018/12/17/18144275/kyle-shanahan-press-conference-transcript-jeff-wilson-nick-mullens-matt-breida-49ers-seahawks
  10. Your memory of people on this board is always impressive. Mad props. I had to search google if the Federalists believed in punctuation. I couldn't find a clear answer. Perhaps e. e. cummings was a member of the Federalist Society.
