  1. 19-0.

    Yea. Im in unfamiliar territory. I realize your post is tongue in cheek but it is weird feeling this optimistic before the season. Usually Im really cautious about expectations as a defense mechanism. I just dont give a shit at this point. Eagles win all the games! 82-0! Prestige World-wide!!! Old Jokes!!!! Ahhhhhhh!!!!

  2. I dont think more armed people/teachers necessarily would change the target location. Mass shooters are usually not planning on survival so the presence of armed people on scene just changes the type of planning.

     

    Targeting schools is popular because of the headlines created and many of these attackers have personal ties to the school. Older shooters tend to pick different locales, it seems.

     

    More guns in schools is a bad idea. Their will be inadvertent or accidental shootings. At some point, a student will gain access to a gun in a state of agitation. There are a lot of potential issues I could see with just a little thought.

  3. Says the guy who just got offended because I said the truth. The mirror is an ugly place to look, I realize.

    Meh. Not sure if saying someone sounds snowflakey is the same as getting offended. Then again, could missed a SB conversation.

     

    I think the media likes to play up the obnoxious Eagles fan stereotype while ignoring in other fanbases, but Id be hard pressed to say there isnt a greater contingent of... people that lack control/ asshats etc than in most fanbases. Still think its the minority of the fan base though, as it is for most fanbases.

  4.  

    Yes? The OT are all great movies.

     

    It's the prequels that aren't.

    Return of the Jedi is ridiculous in a bunch of parts. There are decent parts but the moon of Endor stuff is terrible. Leias story arc kinda sucks. Shes a bad ass and ends up lovestruck and mooning through the woods with living teddy bears. Those teddy bears somehow beat the imperials with sticks and rocks.

     

    Han kinda becomes a side note too.

     

    The good stuff... it starts good. I like the Jabbas palace scene a lot. Lukes story is pretty good. Idk, Its a watchable movie and not the worst by any means but nostalgia amps it up for most people, IMO.

     

    Edit: forgot about Tarzan yelling Chewie.


  5. The fact that you couldn't soundly defeat the god awful Raiders and even allowed them to even score on the defense your other Eagle comrades rant and rave about is my issue.

     

    The Raiders defense is a joke, there's not reason why they shouldn't of put up their best outing of the season.

     

    As someone that lives in Eagles territory... hope has not left Eagle fans. Many.. MANY believe they can still make a deep playoff run...

     

    And by God as long as that hope for them is within them, my hatred will burn even brighter.

     

    I like you GA, but the rest of your comrades need bullets to the head.

    Its kinda like dumb and dumber. So Youre saying theres a chance and all that. Its tough to separate the fan from the fanatic.

     

    I dont think they have a win in them against any nfc playoff teams but I hope hope for the best :shrug:


  6. I wont @ you for that but I cant take you seriously if Phantom Menace isnt last.

    Revenge of the Sith and Attack of the clones make me cringe far worse than Phantom Menace. Outside of some cool individual scenes they are both god awful.

     

    Clones is so convoluted and there is a Tom and Jerry conveyor belt scene. It also basically looks like video game for 1/3rd if the movie.

     

    Sith is fan servicey, completely botched the Vader reveal, and outside of the Obi Wan and Anakin fight is nonsense from start to finish

     

    Padme goes from kind of okay to terrible over the three movies.

     

    Phantom Menace is the best of them but that doesnt mean its awesome either. Its hokey and fan servicey too, and introduces force baby Anakin and the medichlorians, which is kind of stupid too. Jar jar sucks, everyone gets that but he was obviously for the kids and it wasnt that out of character for Lucas, or Star Wars it was just kicked up a notch. It did treat most of its characters with respect. It had no one named Dooku in it and the plot was told in as comprehensible a way as possible.

     

    Btw I cant really watch any of them so I think theyre all really bad. Its like arguing about the best kick in the nuts youve ever had was.


  7. I don't really have a lot to say about the rest of the league at the moment. Rams are a super interesting team this year though. You overly-confident Philly fans would be foolish to underestimate them. They have exactly the right tools to beat you guys.

    I am a bit older and have been burned maybe a little bit more than most of the other Eagles fans here, so I may tend to be a bit more cautious, but this team is like nothing I can remember seeing. They are ridiculously consistent. Im starting to buy the hype.

     

    I do think the road trip coming up is the best chance for a loss in the remaining schedule but if I was forced to bet, I would take the Eagles in each of the games.

     

    There a few teams playing really good football in the NFC and I think another team thats going to add to the glut is the Falcons. If they put it all together they will be very very good. They are starting to get comfortable with their new OC and are producing again.

  8. Not sure. This officiating team has been overly forgiving on a lot of calls tonight, it seems. This is the same team from the Carolina game that caused an uproar.

     

    This game escalated really quickly.


  9. So my biggest thing would be tax reform, most likely. I also have several issues with campaign contributions that I would like to resolve.

     

    "My" idea goes like this:

     

    Federal taxes are collected in whichever method the state deems best. It could be a flat tax, a graduated tax, a consumption tax, a VAT etc. All states are on the hook for an amount determined by their representation in Congress and the method of collection is completely up to the individual state's government.

     

    This promotes competition between states, which I think is good. It gets people interested in their state governments, because we suck at that as a nation. It also allows the states to cater to their own constituents in a more pleasing manner.

  10. I don't have proof, nor am I going to look up stats at this moment. I also know this is more complex then just targeting black people as there are several socio-economic factors. I think the BLM people have a very valid point with wanting to reform the ways law enforcement activities are conducted. I believe that there is a racial element to profiling though I actually think that the biggest factors are age and "presentation." If you fit a stereotype of someone that a cop has learned through one way or another that they may make an arrest and get a check on thier stat sheet they are going to push a little harder or be a little more likely to go after you. I think there is some systemic racism in that practice.
