    ***Official Gameday Thread Browns at Ravens

    Lol, of course we'd start the season with an INT.

    Protest Thread

    Just now, I saw one of the Ravens players taking a knee, but having his hand over his heart and singing the national anthem. I think this is a pretty decent compromise.
  3. Wow. I guess these analysts forgot about the Bengals before doing this projection: https://www.nflanalysis.net/espn-projects-last-place-finish-for-cleveland-browns-in-afc-north/

    Calling it first

    I'm calling it first: this thread is going to get locked or deleted because politics is leaking over here from the pol board like shit water leaks back into the house when the septic tank is full.
  5. We split the baby with all 3 teams in our division last year, if I remember correctly.

    A fine, upstanding young American

    "When you wake up in the morning, tell yourself: the people I deal with today will be meddling, ungrateful, arrogant, dishonest, jealous and surly. They are like this because they can't tell good from evil. But I have seen the beauty of good, and the ugliness of evil, and have recognized that the wrongdoer has a nature related to my own - not of the same blood and birth, but the same mind, and possessing a share of the divine. And so none of them can hurt me. No one can implicate me in ugliness. Nor can I feel angry at my relative, or hate him. We were born to work together like feet, hands and eyes, like the two rows of teeth, upper and lower. To obstruct each other is unnatural. To feel anger at someone, to turn your back on him: these are unnatural." - Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

    I hope this bites GoodYear in the...

    Also, Goodyear owns several smaller subsidiary companies across the US. I'm sure those workers would be pumped to pull the lever for Trump in November if they lost their jobs due to a boycott that Trump supported.

    I hope this bites GoodYear in the...

    Honestly, calling for a boycott was a pretty stupid move on Trump's part. He could have easily just pointed out what Goodyear was up to and let people make their own decisions from there and came out winning on this. But, by expressly calling for a boycott, he's signed himself on to average workers potentially losing their jobs in the fallout from this. Workers who live in a swing state and could have been potential voters of his.

    Is kamoola harris a xxxx opinions differ.

    Cal, I'm not a fan of Kamala Harris at all, and I do believe it is plausible that she did use her sexuality to gain political favor. However, Trump has cheated on every wife he's ever had, so I'm not sure this is the hill to plant the morality flag on.

    Biden Selects Kamala Harris as his VP

    Biden/Harris 2020, more like Cop n' Feel 2020.

    Biden Selects Kamala Harris as his VP

    Will do. I turned 34 last month, and I feel like a creeper talking to women in their early 20s.

    Biden Selects Kamala Harris as his VP

    They are quite terrifying when they're in seats of power, like Congress, the White House and the Supreme Court. I've been advocating for years for a mandatory retirement age for public officials. There's always outliers, but for the most part, mental and physical faculties begin to sharply decline in people's 60s, and I'd rather not have a bunch of geriatrics holding the purse strings and nuke codes.

    Biden Selects Kamala Harris as his VP

    Well, for starters, former San Francisco mayor admitted to having a relationship with Harris while he was mayor and married. He was in his 60s and she was in her late 20s at the time. Dunno about you, but I don't know many women in their 20s who go after dudes in their 60s for bf material based on their six-pack abs and charming personalities. He also admitted to using his influence to help her get jobs in government while they were dating: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2019/01/27/willie-brown-kamala-harris-san-francisco-chronicle-letter/2695143002/ So, I mean it's not that far out of the realm of possibility to say that she slept her way up the ladder of government. Definitely not misogyny.

    Science experiment

    I believe there's enough of the proverbial fertile ground here for the both of us to be correct. Are regular surgical masks, if properly utilized, beneficial in the prevention of the spread of influenza? Yes and no. Yes, because the mask pore size is small enough to sufficiently stop a majority of aerosolized sneeze and cough droplets from going into the local atmosphere; at worst, they slow down particles enough so that they don't travel nearly as far as they would have if unobstructed. To your point, there are also particle sizes small enough to make it through. What these masks are most efficient at is stopping enough of the aerosol particles from escaping or traveling far, thereby reducing the potential viral load someone in close proximity would be exposed to. Bio-load is a critical factor in whether or not someone gets ill, because the typical healthy human immune system is more effective at fighting off lower viral loads.

    Science experiment

    Your methodology is a bit flawed. I did a deep dive on mask pore size on this thread a few weeks ago, but I'll repost here: "You are correct about the average size of typical viruses. However, viruses do not exist in a vacuum; on their own, they cannot travel very far, and can be quite vulnerable to outside influences, such as temperature, relative humidity of the air and UV light from the sun. As such, viruses need a transmission vector in order to spread. In most cases, that is usually droplets coming from sneezing or coughing. Those droplets are much bigger than the viruses they carry; usually around 0.6-1000 micrometers (um)."
  16. Sounds like most "militias" today, tbh.
  17. From what I've been reading, it was an accidental discharge; one of the members of the militia supposedly passed out from heat exhaustion and dropped the gun that went off. If so, it was an accident. Although I don't agree with the message of the NFAC militia, from what I've read, you have to have military experience to join, so they should have knowledge of trigger discipline.

    Trump is currently losing 2020

    I think you meant JAFBF and not me, but I'll answer anyway. Do I think Trump has 40% of the African American vote? No. But I do believe he has a much larger proportion of the popular vote across all races than what is being reported. It's been dubbed the "Silent Majority" by pundits, in that there are voters out there who aren't publicly admitting that they're going to vote for Trump or are considering voting for him. This is due to perceived and actual negative social and economical consequences for publicly admitting they're even considering voting Trump in November, i.e losing friends and potentially jobs for admitting as much. Also, you can't discount political movements such as the #blexit and #walkaway movements which are drawing a sizable number of voters away from the Democratic Party. Many African Americans are fed up with the Democrats kowtowing to radical socialist progressive movements and the radical elements of BLM. People are losing their homes, businesses and even their lives to the continuing rioting and violence being perpetrated by these groups, and the Democrats are supporting those groups instead of the victims of those group's violent behavior.
  19. Looks like they found this piece of shit and arrested him. Good. https://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/jul/22/isaiah-jackson-arrested-after-photo-kneeling-white/ And of course this Retard is from Dayton.
  20. This is pretty insane: Heavy.com: New Jersey Federal Judge Esther Salas’ Husband, Son Shot by Man in FedEx Uniform "[Judge Salas] was recently assigned a case with a Jeffrey Epstein link. According to Bloomberg, Deutsche Bank AG is being accused of misleading investors “about anti-money-laundering deficiencies,” including not properly monitoring high-risk customers, among them the financier Jeffrey Epstein, who died in a Manhattan jail cell while awaiting sex offense charges. Epstein’s ties to high-profile figures like Prince Andrew and the manner in which he died have caused some to question whether his death was murder instead of suicide. Authorities have given no indication that the motive for the Anderl shootings is tied into any of the judge’s cases, however. The case was filed “on July 15, 2020, and has been assigned to Judge Esther Salas,” according to Globe News Wire. Bloomberg Law also reported that the case was assigned to Judge Salas."
