  • 6 Nations Rugby Week 2 2019 OPEN

    ‘Tis that time of year again, the 6 Nations Rugby tournament is ON! It is being carried, thankfully, by NBCSN. It is on a 2 hour delay so I have to avoid the Brit papers and not look at the scores. It is England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France, and Italy. Yes, The Italians do play rugby.

    Today at 1430 Eastern is Ireland at Scotland from fabled Murrayfield Stadium in Scotland. Ireland beat the New Zealand All Blacks earlier this year and are one of the best teams out there right now. Scotland manhandled Italy last week but won’t have that sort of luck today. Then at 1630 it is Wales at Italy from Stadio Olymipco i Rome. The Welsh should handle this no problem. Tomorrow its France at England from Twickenham. The English have a really good side this year as well.

    So, if yinz get a chance, try to watch!

      My drive back from the north last night was easily the worst conditions I’ve every driven in. Lake effect snow, 10 foot visibility, max speed 10mph.

      It was amazing, I’ve been in some great lake effect snow before but nothing like this. I was in the snow band for a good 20 minutes while traveling directly south.

      Thankfully, there were no other cars as it was 0100 …and middle of nowhere.

      @ coldwarrior:
      I stayed on the road by feeling for the rumble strips on the right shoulder and on the center line. I considered stopping, but… one of these bands can dump a foot or two in no time, then yinz is stuck.

      The Benz 4-matic AWD system performed flawlessly. My cigar got the hell chomped out of it tho!

      When I worked in Montreal. I used to drive to Kingston, Ontario where my boyfriend was doing his medical internship. Young, in love, and stupid I was in a whiteout for miles. Saw a turn off from the expressway & took it. Got to the train station & rode the rest of the way. Never occurred to me to go back to Montreal. lol

      I drove whiteout conditions several times from Malmstrom down to Wyoming to go home. Never did get used to it. Driving by feel (pre-rumble strip), Never knowing if the lights coming from the other direction were in their lane or yours.

      You never forget what it’s like to drive blind. I was lucky to see the exit sign in time & be in the right lane. You were probably driving for work. I had no reasonable excuse. lol

      I may have also had a girlfriend during that period too, so that could have been a motivator.

      Dem Rep. Jayapal tells MSNBC Trump wants to ‘make America pure’ with no ‘folks of color’

      “This has never been about a wall,” Jayapal said. “He actually could have gotten funding a couple of years ago, or a year ago, for a wall. It was part of a deal that was proposed. Not all of us agreed with that deal, but it was proposed to him and he turned it down because his ultimate goal is, as you said, to make America pure in the sense of not having immigrants, not having folks of color here and shutting down every form of legal immigration, all to throw a bone to those people.”

      She also just stated he could have gotten a wall before he was elected. “A couple of years ago”. Not a genius, obviously.

      Trump is trolling the Dems

      I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal. It would be great for the so-called “Carbon Footprint” to permanently eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military – even if no other country would do the same. Brilliant!

      Given who she really was, military officials had little choice in how they described Shannon Kent. They said only that she was a “cryptologic technician,” which anyone might assume meant that her most breakneck work was behind a desk.

      In reality, she spent much of her professional life wearing body armor and toting an M4 rifle, a Sig Sauer pistol strapped to her thigh, on operations with Navy SEALs and other elite forces — until a suicide bombing took her life last month in northeastern Syria.

      She was, in all but name, part of the military’s top-tier Special Operations forces. Officially a chief petty officer in the Navy, she actually worked closely with the nation’s most secretive intelligence outfit, the National Security Agency, to target leaders of the Islamic State.

      Shannon Kent was 35 yrs old. She leaves a husband in Special Ops and 2 boys, 3yrs and 18 mos.

      Something Is Not Quite Right In the Universe, Ultraprecise New Measurement Reveals

      Something isn’t quite right in the universe. At least based on everything physicists know so far. Stars, galaxies, black holes and all the other celestial objects are hurtling away from each other ever faster over time. Past measurements in our local neighborhood of the universe find that the universe is exploding outward faster than it was in the beginning. That shouldn’t be the case, based on scientists’ best descriptor of the universe.

      If their measurements of a value known as the Hubble Constant are correct, it means that the current model is missing crucial new physics, such as unaccounted-for fundamental particles, or something strange going on with the mysterious substance known as dark energy.[5 Elusive Particles Beyond the Higgs | Quantum Physics]

      Now, in a new study, published Jan. 22 in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, scientists have measured the Hubble Constant in an entirely new way, confirming that, indeed, the universe is expanding faster now than it was in its early days.

      https://www.space.com/43277-hubble-constant-measured-precisely-with-quasars.html

      Well, I’m not worried, AOC says we only have 12 yrs left anyway.

      The more I read about “Dark Matter” or “Dark Energy” The less I believe in it. It seems to be something made up to make the observations fit the theory with no actual proof of it existing. They’ve been hunting for the elusive material for decades with no results.

      Isn’t that what Einstein did with the’universal constant’ or something? There was a gap in the theory so he did the chewing gum/baling wire fix. Happens all the time.
