    Coastie Award - Final

    Bump. I will say this. Rogue and I both agree neither of us should really be in this position but one should be far more than the other. However he embodies the attributes of coastie more than I do. He has been a staple in this community for a long time, even longer than I have. He has wrecked trolls, gives honest and sincere insight, can be snappy and drop a beat down when needed without being annoying. And he will hate this post. He has great hair as well. I love this place, but Rogue is far and away the best Boise poster here. Sorry @RogueStout but you really are deserving of this award. I know you will feel embarrassed winning this, but Coastie would have as well. I take pride in being a jackass for fun from time to time. I think @RogueStout and I will both agree that this is a community we are proud and happy to be a part of.

    Far left radicals in South Africa.

    I really like it when you decide to post like this. Thank you for the in depth response that obviously took a little bit of time. Your time to engage in this way, honestly, is appreciated. It is basically impossible to classify historical movements, regimes, philosophy and figures through a lens of right or left as understood by the current American zeitgeist. Lets look at the Mongols for example. In the vast territories they wasted with the corpses of man they created a more liberal, in kind of the way we recognize it, structure. Women became more empowered and saw their social standing rise, freedom of religion was a cornerstone, economic freedom strongly encouraged, as long as you paid your taxes, taxes that went largely to public works like improving the ability of humans to move freely with ease through countries now deprived of a border. Yet +++++ with the second cousin twice removed from the Khan and your male family members would be slaughtered and your female members raped, murdered or forced into prostitution. How the hell can you relate that to our current understanding of the political spectrum? This is just one example why trying to define monarchies or other historical moments and movements as either left through the lens of modern political theory or right is just a fools goal. I am tired but will go into this more regarding more modern examples of Communism and totalitarianism and collectivism and why they can and have been corner stones to far left radical ideology and have even been praised as such.

    Antarctica Has Lost More Than 3 Trillion Tons Of Ice In 25 Years

    Of course. Actually I am having a hard time finding the original article but these are very respected sources. TechTimes is as good a .com site as any for science information. IBT is considered fairly far left media but does not have the reputation of TT. I included it because it is far left of center. http://www.techtimes.com/articles/217736/20171229/a-mini-ice-age-could-happen-within-the-next-few-decades-global-warming-canceled.htm http://www.ibtimes.sg/scientists-predict-mini-ice-age-next-5-years-will-give-30-years-sort-out-pollution-22427 Now I want to emphasize this is NOT to dismiss the dangers of man caused climate change and pollution. In fact my biggest fear is that stabilizing or even small, tiny reductions in global temperatures will lead to many screaming something along the lines of "see there was nothing to worry about" or "Wait I thought we were all going to be flooded by now". No, the approaching Maunder minimum is a gift we MUST capitalize on and use it as a small buffer to the damage we are doing to the planet. Like calling a timeout to come up with a better play. If we do not significantly reduce emissions during this period we are....kind of screwed. Or at least any grand kids I might have will be.

    You Know The Job #'s Are Good When.........

    As long as my generation has an aversion to babies we absolutely need more immigrants.

    Antarctica Has Lost More Than 3 Trillion Tons Of Ice In 25 Years

    I posted a highly acclaimed paper, universally considered the best most comprehensive ever done on the Maunder Minimum, that was published in freaking Nature, showing that the world will soon begin a 40 year cooling period. Only to have many democrats on the board reject it as BS. It goes both ways.
  6. Yes, I have my copy in hand. I cut it out of the Idaho Statesmen back in 1993 and have been bringing it up every game since that time! #Boisefanthings.

    Stunner's wet dream

    Pretty much. The next game will be a top 5 attendance game well likely. In an era where teams struggle to sell out more and more and more this is important. Great game to bring recruits to as well because of the atmosphere. Increase the value of seasons tickets as well as singles for that game. But no, this is all because of ESPN contacted Boise State in 2008 to set up the series, 4 years before they would own the rights to BYU games 5.5 years before the would own the rights of Boise home games. Then again 15 months before they would even BEGIN to negotiate with BSU and the MWC regarding Boise's home game rights. Got to love some of these Wyoming fans.

    LHC getting MAJOR upgrade.

    http://www.techtimes.com/articles/230390/20180616/large-hadron-collider-upgrade-to-allow-exploration-beyond-standard-model-of-particle-physics.htm This is exciting.
  9. I think it depends on the terrain of the encounter. Is there a flight of stairs near by? Portable Toilets with huge lines? On her home turf, I say 4 Nevada fans. At Mackey Stadium, 2.

    Mueller's Got The Russians

    Honest question, would you have rather seen a Ted Cruz vs Hillary election?

    Stunner's wet dream

    The series was announced in 2008 and extended before the Big East invitation when we did not know we would end on ESPN at all, let alone have our special deal with them.

    You Wyoming fans really don't get how this basic stuff works. Hilarious.

    We started negotiating the deal in 2008 bud.
