Dammit Red Sox, I said LESS drama, not more.
That said, glad the series is over. I didn't really expect the Sox to be contenders at all this year, so every win is a bonus.

Do you think a lot of that actually comes from Part II, where indeed he's one of the most unsympathetic protagonists cinema has ever seen? No, I'm thinking solely of Part I. I actually kind of wish they'd never made a Part II. I feel like the novel ends with Michael still an inherently good guy, an...Jump to post
In my opinion, it's always better to see the movie first, then read the book, if possible. That way, you won't be disappointed, but might actually be surprised by how much more is in the book. Patriot Games, C&PD and Red October are far better Clancy adaptations. Red October is one case where I ...Jump to post
Going to take a massive reversal of fortune for the Yanks to salvage their season now. Sox bullpen is looking solid. I was not a fan of removing Eovaldi (who was pitching with some serious conviction), but luckily it worked out....though only by about 2 feet. The only problem with this game is A-Ro...Jump to post
Maybe a better solution would be making the divisions symbolic and seeding the postseason in each league based only on winning percentage. I don't really have a problem with the divisions. Just think that no playoff contest should be decided by a single game. Having two teams win a wildcard is ridi...Jump to post
Just glad the Sox managed a comeback win yesterday over the Nats (even though the Nats are my NL team). With that said, I hate, hate, HATE the wildcard game. In my mind, it's not even a post-season game. It's just game 163. You don't "really" make the post-season until you win that game. P...Jump to post

So just out of curiosity, taking BOS as an example, takeoffs from 22L/R perform an essentially immediate turn to 140. Here is the language I found in the Logan Two departure procedure on Airnav: TAKEOFF RWYS 22L/22R: Climbing left turn heading 140 So does that mean an immediate turn, or is it assume...Jump to post

What else should I consider for a day of spotting? In general at this time of year, through the winter and early spring, you want to be shooting facing north.

Q1. Formula for Moment about the aerodynamic center = Cmac q s c (Cmac = moment coefficient, q = dynamic pressure, s = surface area, c = chord). I understand that moment = f x d so, distance has to be there hence why chord is in the formula. However, why is it not the distance from the AC to the ce...Jump to post
I've pretty much never heard of anyone getting ticketed for going less than 10 MPH over the speed limit, so yes I do think its harsh and several other people agree with me. Again, the speed limit makes a difference. In my experience, people don't go 90 in 80mph zones. Just keep it to 85 and you'll ...Jump to post
The Best Setting For A Window Air Conditioner Is Actually Medium Cool / Medium Fan Speed I've often wondered about that, though the answer doesn't surprise me.

Start Slowly, and warm up more. Stretch a bit. A good and long warm-up before workouts can have a very positive effect on your body. I agree wholeheartedly with these comments.

Oddly enough, I though Aaron Rodgers was great. More understated but kept the game moving. Mike Richards was fine as a host, but obviously problematic for other reasons.

If you look at the velocities of true explosives and deflagrating fuels, the line is very broad—orders of magnitude.

Ok, you’re the prosecutor. Prove that the driver did not know the guy was dead. That seems fairly simple. Did he get out of the car and check for vitals? If not, then he doesn't know the guy is dead.

There are other factors---movement, color of skin, size of the blood puddle, where the holes are in the body, etc. Some of those can give an indication that a person MAY be dead. Heck, even if he checked vitals, that only indicates that a person is currently clinically dead. People can be revived.Jump to post

Well, the reason for saying that a bass has 4 strings is pretty simple.

Basses has 4 strings. You may not know this, but if you play the middle 4 strings on a 6-string bass, they're the same strings as on a 4-string bass!

OPS superseded batting average in importance awhile ago. I agree that it's not a good change for the game overall.
