Here’s hoping 2018 brings more ethical leadership, focused on the truth and lasting values. Happy New Year, everybody.

— James Comey (@Comey) December 31, 2017

I hope the big guy is reading the responses to that.

Since his firing, Comey landed a book deal reportedly worth millions of dollars. His book, titled “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” will detail what he believes effective leadership looks like.

Let me show you how "inappropriate" is done:

Wictor got on a roll last night and did an epic take-down of Bret Stephens. You will notice that he got so incensed he didn't realize he went from 13 to 24 when numbering the posts. However, it is well worth reading.

Thank you, Burt Reynolds, for cementing the national image of Georgians as lawbreaking, racist imbeciles with serious dental issues via "Deliverance" and "Smokey and the Bandit I-eleventy.

Happy New Year to all!

I'm with you RG - cheering for the SEC all around today. My son and girlfriend are at the Peach Bowl in the beautiful new Mercedes-Benz stadium. My niece works there and is giving them the grand tour! War Eagle!

Hope you are staying warm, MM!

For those who feed the birds - remember they also need water when it is this cold.

Momto2

Yes, DebinGA - that image is seared into minds and re-enforced by media types whenever possible.

Really a funny piece. Requires you to have lived or travelled extensively in England or the UK or Europe but you'll get the humor. I know Joan and I will:)

How did Georgia racists get impugned?

A lot of real world engineering can be done with 3 decimal places.

Prolly one of the most consequential constants in ingineering is the modulus of elasticity, E. I've done numerous tests that suggest the published value for steel is off by 15 pct. Never found a modern refinement to suggest, for instance, that it is affected by alloy or carbon content. The slide rule is more accurate than that. :)

Burt Reynolds was perfectly cast as a porn producer in Boogie Nights.

The Farsi Ferret must be apoplectic over this:

Do you guys ever think about what you lead with? After I asked the question I realized I lead with the wrong thing, and my 2018 resolution is to not do that anymore.

So what do you lead with?

Threadkiller

I lead with "remember when the afterbirters..."

Threadkiller

...afterbirthers...

Temp up to -6F from -11F. Sunny. Great window forecast in MN. Just don't go outside.

Also checking in as an engineer of electrical keeping in mind the first law of system programming: never test for an error you can't handle. Don't know if that has a political equivalent.

Regarding the glass half full or half empty, Afn engineer will tell you it's twice as big as in needs to be.

Indianapolis weather says currently 4, low -10, but clear. Hope MM's snow ploy/HVAC guy has come and gone, leaving heat in his wake.

What is an "afterbirther"?
Also, since I am not very informed in this area, what is the key premise of the Birther argument? Did Obama's mother renounce her US citizenship? Else wouldn't BHO be a US citizen regardless of the place of birth?

Man Tran

Well, all this techie talk may be for naught. Go read the AT article LUN. Purdue's Engineering School just got flushed. Ugh.

I will need to switch to my desktop and unlock my cut and paste files...


This is panning out to be a great year!

Man Tran, these people say math is too hard for "people of color", LGBTetc, women. And the people they just called too stupid to live outside of caves applaud. Strang place, academia.

Plus: New Thread.

mad jack

Noooooooooo!

mad jack

i meant to add- very funny tk!

Threadkiller

New thread???

:-(

I will keep it brief.

An afterbirther is someone who used ridicule to form all of their arguments as to why the POTUS should be allowed dual allegiance. They also made the claim that a birther would never be POTUS. Smart crowd.

The key premise is that the Founders created an eligibility requirement for POTUS that mandated that the office can only be held by persons that had a single allegiance at birth. (With the exception of the first presidents who fell under the grandfather clause.)

LOL,mad jack!

Here's another crazy conspiracy theory:

Seth Rich was assassinated for leaking DNC files to WikiLeaks; Sudden Onset Arkancide Syndrome.

Crazy, huh?
