    Geezer Tribute Thread. :p No one in the Daytona 500 field was even born when Mark Thompson graduated high school. He started last (40th) and finished 22nd. He completed 203 of 207 laps and was still running at the end. Hmm; not bad. https://www.nascar.com/results/race_center/2018/monster-energy-nascar-cup-series/daytona-500/stn/race/ Another story here: http://www.myajc.com/blog/further-review/cartersville-driver-throws-off-the-curve-daytona-500/0oMFkEOyJlbbMxnXJO1ohO/

    I hope you're not assuming that just because someone is against the animal industries that automatically means they are for "modern agriculture." Vegans who care about the environment are always looking for sustainable ways of doing things, that cause the least harm to this world. Many of them support buying locally from small farms… or growing their own food. But the fact of the matter is that the animal industries are the worst, on a number of levels. And you don't have to be so defensive. Of course it's your choice to do business with who you want. But that doesn't mean that others don't have the right to speak out and bring awareness to these cruel, selfish industries. While we are free to choose our actions, we are not always free to choose the consequences.

    You were comparing milk to soda or sweet drinks… My point was that that's a terrible comparison, because people who ditch dairy typically go to almond milk, cashew milk, rice milk, soy milk, oat milk or other non-dairy plant-based milks… Not soda or juice. As for their use of the word responsible, I'd have to go check out the article to see the context. But most likely they were talking about how the animal industries are horrible in numerous ways, for example the tons of water and food it takes to feed livestock, the astronomical amount of waste (yes, actual shit) that ends up polluting lakes and causing all sorts of other problems, the disease, the chemicals used to treat the diseases, etc. etc.

    That's what we've always been told, but studies have shown that dairy is linked to an increased risk of certain type of cancer. Plus you've got pus cells in milk, and in some cases, parasites. Also, even on the small, so called "humane" farms, the baby cows are still torn away from their mother… Usually at one day old. That is standard practice. And it's a cruel practice. Why be a part of causing suffering when you don't have to? (This next one is not a dairy farm, but it still shows how protective mothers are of their babies)

    Actually, typically people who stop drinking cow's milk replace it with a nondairy milk… such as almond milk or numerous other non-dairy plant-based milks. They taste good, they're nutritious, you don't have to worry about lactose intolerance, and best of all, you no longer have to participate in tearing a baby away from his mother, which causes distress to both the mother and the baby, in order to steal his milk. If you think there is something in this article that is false, then point it out and refute it. I'm just exposing that this industry is in bed with the government, the same government who created the now debunked food pyramid.

    Have you guys noticed that they're blaming Trump for this? But remember all those school shootings under Obama's watch? I never heard any of the Dems blame Obama. Also, maybe it's just me… but for some reason the public's reaction to this particular one feels different. There seems to be much more of an uproar and a collective call for the government to step in and do something.

    Interesting stuff. I normally don't watch TV, but I'm visiting my mom right now and I was watching the news last night… And there was this one kid who blatantly looked like he was reading from a script...Not only the way he was speaking, but his eyes, and everything about it seemed so contrived. I thought to myself, am I the only one seeing this? This is absolutely crazy. I haven't looked into this one too closely yet, but based on what I learned so far, it seems to fit all the usual characteristics of a false flag.

    Yeah, I realized that not long after I started posting. Still, the side of truth is needed on threads like that. Many of them are probably very young, and just misguided. But even if they are hopeless, there are others reading those threads and the truth needs to be stated. So much truth there, I love it! Thank you for sharing that. Sadly, his point of view is very unpopular… In fact, I've noticed that their latest thing is to mock when people say "Pray for (such and such place)." Their motto now seems to be "We don't need prayer we need stricter gun laws." Oh, and still blaming the NRA.

    I mostly watch ballgames and old movies on tee vee, but see these ads for current TV shows and new movies that seem to play up the dysfunction angle. How many ads do you see where characters break out of America's ordered and safety mode, only to become bad ass want-to-be cynics? Is that a sign of the times, or has dysfunction always been funny? Women and women parents aren't always portrayed in the best light either. And I don't see all these media portrayals as being totally monolithic in a shift. The Honeymooners is, arguably, the best comedy of all-time, but Ralph and Ed often played dunderheads to their more apparently sensible wives. Homer Simpson is a dunce compared to Marge, but I used to ROTFL the first few years of that show. Archie Bunker was often portrayed as weak and foolish, but liberal Norman Lear made sure liberal character Meathead got his share of jabs. Maybe those are exceptions, or it's not a total tidal wave?

    I think this is a thoughtful post, especially the last line as a springboard. There is obviously structural change over the past few decades, but how much of this is just men and women arguing age-old things because of biological differences?

    This 2007 CBS story starts off that way and points exactly to the shows you mention; however, they seem to play it off in the end. The 10 minute clip is probably long for a discussion forum, but I think you will be interested. This guy's Youtube comment in part II of the video makes some good points:

    I listened to the NC State-Syracuse game on the radio the other night. Wolfpack almost folded when Boeheim switched from their zone to a more frenetic style. This time though, NC State handled it and went on to win. As it stands now, they might have enough signature wins to get in. Probably could use one or two more good wins though.

    Hey, I know that most of you aren't on Fedbook but if anyone is...you are needed. The anti-2A brainwashed libs are overwhelmingly outnumbering everyone else… Please educate them: https://www.facebook.com/TheOther98/photos/a.115969958413991.17486.114517875225866/2276048772406088/?type=3&theater Is it just me, or does it pain others to see this? They're literally laughing and mocking those who are simply saying that people have a right to defend themselves.

    Yeah, chess is one of those games they dub Easy to learn, but hard to master. I don't play much either. It's just too many variables, so it's like work to me. My wife can take me out in a minimum number of moves. It's funny though, because she doesn't like this really old game called Broadside. I find Broadside style slightly similar to chess, but she swears she does not understand the game. I like Upwords (Scrabble) because you think, but you can exhaust the variables much easier. I still lose 3 of 4 games, but find it more enjoyable. Mastermind is a thinking game that'll make you go "Damn!" when your losing ass can't figure it out. Ever play TiGo? It's a version of the old Chinese game called Go. It's similar to Broadside in that each side has different pieces, and therefore, different strengths. It's 4 tigers versus 20 goats. The object for the tigers is to jump all 20 goats. The object for the goats is to surround all 4 tigers. Different from chess in that sense. Okay, so I sort a got off track, but there's some trivia in these old nostalgia games. Plus, it relates to the thread in the my mother-in-law is going to live with us.:eek: She has a visa from half way around the world. She doesn't speak much English, so these games actually give me an idea for an activity.
