Re: The Science Thread

I guess what drives me crazy is the seemingly insurmountable gulf between "Middle School student textbook level" understanding and really getting it. (I care more for my own curiosity than to help me teach students - I definitely get it enough for sixth graders) This is the sort of picture...

Re: The Science Thread

I want to know more! I teach Earth science to sixth graders, even though my background is biology (not that I know much about that) but seismology fascinates me. I love finding seismograms through usgs or Iris or elsewhere, but reading them and understanding what is going on, past the basics, still ...

Re: The New Daily Double...?

This thread grates on me way more than it should, which is probably not at all. Dernier was just decent for only a year and Kenny Lofton was a Cub for only a couple months. These leadoff combos were not deserving of nicknames. Like at all. Why is this making me so angry? In summary, the nickname &qu...

Janet Reno just looks like a regular human to me. Sanders looks like a demon. I guess it must be about what she says and the way she says it. Is it ok to hate her for that?

Re: Offseason Transactions

Acuna turned down a 5 or 6 year offer for around $30 million, I assume if he would've accepted this would've allowed him to start the year right away in MLB since they would've got a year or 2 of FA bought out. I don't think five or six years buys out any free agency. Seems crazy for him not to tak...

Re: 2018 Draft Thread

A lot of posters here really like LHP - M. Liberatore so I'll post the link to a recent article on Fangraphs. I still think the Cubs have no chance at him, and it's kind of a waste of time to dream on getting him. I do think his velocity picks up as we get closer to the draft, and that he gets take...

Re: General Chit-Chat thread

Which is hilarious, because I feel like no one vapes anymore (or at least the number of people who do it now compared to 2 years ago is significantly lower) A bunch of sixth grade students apparently vape. Say what now? Lots of rumors of students vaping in school. We haven't caught any sixth grader...

Vonnegut's Player Piano was published in 1952. Same topic. Good book.
