RE: Let's fix football....once and for all

Why not have helmets with foam on the outside of the shell along with padding inside? http://i.usatoday.net/sports/_photos/2012/08/06/Helmet-covers-are-a-controversial-trend-7A2102F7-x-large.jpg

RE: Let's fix football....once and for all

I think we should go back to the old rules where players played on both sides of the ball and if you went out of the game, you could not come back in until the next quarter. That would eliminate some of those huge players who can run fast in short burts, but don't have the stamina to play very long. Not to mention the players of the leather helmet era were nowhere near the size of the behemoths lumbering around the field these days.

RE: Question about a rain gauge vs. empty tuna can

Rain amounts can vary by quite a bit even in just a few miles. I remember an experiment where they put a rain gauge every 1/2 mile over an area in Northwestern Minnesota and typical summer showers didn't spread the rain very evenly. It seem as tho the simple answer would be to watch the weather on TV.They usually tell how much rain fell.(They may not be so good at telling how much WILL fall.)

RE: Tom Megliozzi Dies 77

My favorite joke from their show was identifying fluids on your garage floor. They said if it's yellow and smells bad, the cat's litter box probably needs to be changed. :)

RE: Which College Football Game(s) Are You Watching Today?

North Dakota State wins 31 in a row by putting away a good team rather easily.

RE: Saving $5.00 Bills

I use what little loose change I collect in the self-checkout lines at the supermarket. That way I can earn interest on the money that would have otherwise come out of the checking account. Our credit union pays much higher interest rates on checking accounts if we use the debit card 13 times per month. It still isn't much, but it's better than zero percent. :)

RE: Going back to cash

Tips are taxable income. I pay taxes on all the money I earn, why shouldn't everyone else? There is a third alternative to cash or credit. Has anyone used the "gift credit cards" you can get in places like Wal-Mart... The ones you can add a specified dollar amount to? These don't have any personal info on them but can work just like a credit card. Wonder if the discounts would be the same at the merchants? BTW... if you are tipping in a restaurant, please be kind and leave cash even if you are paying for the meal with a credit card. Some of the restaurants have been taking taxes out of the tip money before giving it to the waitresses/waiters.

RE: Delete

The logo on the video references Australia so the biker was going the wrong way down the road.

RE: which jeep grand cherokee is best

My overland with the ecodiesel engine has 1,050 lbs listed as the cargo carrying capacity on the sticker. The Jeep web site says I should have a max payload of 1,170 with 4x4. I would think my payload should be less than the gassers since the diesel engine is heavier and I doubt they use any different suspension components.

RE: which jeep grand cherokee is best

The turbocharged diesel really pays off in the mountains where the air is thinner and gassers start to struggle with heavy loads. For what it's worth, our ecodiesel averaged 30 MPG on a road trip (not towing, of course) from Oregon to New Orleans and back. The 8-speed tranny in the new models makes a big difference as our 2008 CRD would only get around 25 MPG on similar routes. That's not bad for a 4x4 that has an EPA estimate of 28 MPG on the highway

RE: Bend Oregon- What the weather in mid Oct?

If anyone still cares, Bend is drier than Portland as it's on the other side of the cascades. Even in Portland, it's generally warm and dry in the fall until November when we get our heaviest rain from the pineapple express.

RE: SEC Dominates Best Tailgating Schools!

My alma mater, North Dakota State is #4 in this ranking.

RE: Football: College vs nfl

I like them both, but pro football a little better as the teams are more evenly matched. Blowouts are far more common in the college game.

RE: Moles

Are there animals that act like moles? We thought we had one with tunnels coming up to the surface and then we saw an animal like a squirrel or chipmunk digging a hole in the grass. We have one cat who spends a few hours outside most days, but she's too slow to catch anything.

RE: Are ya ready for some football

Did you hear about the fire in the library at the Alabama student-athlete tutoring building? Most of the books hadn't even been colored yet.

RE: A peeve of mine.

I generally won't wave if someone pulls over to let people pass. Then again, I won't tailgate if someone's going slow either.

RE: How to move a million pound load

They have shipped giant equipment via rail on specialized railcars that were so heavy it could only be done in the winter when the ground was frozen solid between Duluth and the tar sands in Canada.
