Confabulat: Confabulat: You can buy fake pee at the store you know.Oh wait, your name suggests you live in Alabama. You probably can't, or a dildo either.
DrewCurtisJr: lennavan: Junior outside linebacker Chase Vasser must sit out the first two games of the season after he was arrested on charges of driving under the influence and for driving in an improper lane in Atlanta on May 11.LinkYes but this seems to indicate that this may not have have been the first time for Reid and that it may not be policy to kick a guy off the team for a single violation.FTA: There has been rampant speculation that Reid may have surpassed FSU's three-strikes-and-you're-out university policy for testing positive for marijuana.
bluorangefyre: Mugato: Someone thinks that people involved in college football should be above the law? This is unprecedented!What'd you expect from the Criminoles?/hey NCAA: take away some of Bowden's wins too!
FLMountainMan: bluorangefyre: Mugato: Someone thinks that people involved in college football should be above the law? This is unprecedented!What'd you expect from the Criminoles?/hey NCAA: take away some of Bowden's wins too!Is a Gator fan actually calling FSU "Criminoles"? HILARIOUS (not to mention really innovative). You know UF has led the NCAA in player arrests the last decade, right?Also, Bowden did get wins vacated. For a cheating "scandal" that FSU self-reported and that the NCAA admitted that neither Bowden nor anyone else in the school's administration knew about.
malaktaus: Mr Guy: Kome: you tested positive for cannabis.That's the problem, and why we can't currently legalize weed. As bad as blood alcohol testing is, there's at least some vague correlation between the results and the difference between drinking now, and had a drink yesterday. We currently don't have a good quick relatively inexpensive test for the difference between smoked weed before you pulled me over, and smoked weed last Sunday. That's what the pro legalization people need to address if they really want weed to break the barriers nationwide. You need a guy in a white coat explaining MADD can still execute people for driving under the influence, even if the definition for under the influence has no basis in science or reality.That is a nonsense issue. First of all, people are already smoking and driving, and it's pretty questionable that legalization would lead to a significant increase in stoned driving. Second, what about all the people who drive under the influence of prescription drugs? You know, the kind that state clearly on the label, "Do not drive or operate heavy machinery?" Do the concern trolls have anything to say about this (rather serious and increasing) problem, or is it just weed they're worried about? I think you know the answer to that. Every time a reason for prohibition is debunked, instead of admitting they're wrong they invent something new to lie about. That is all this is.
barefoot in the head: Lyonid: //it's still a perfectly reasonable position to choose not to break a law in order to avoid the consequences associated with being caught breaking said law.///that is in no way the same as "suspending individual judgement". quite the opposite.////sla-sla-sla-slashy!Read the post into which you jumped and look for a reference to the police. You won't find one. Krymson Tyde claims that deferring to his employer's judgment, and thereby denying his own (beyond the premise that acquiesence = survival), is "adult". If you discuss his use of that word in terms of fact-versus-value judgment, you will be addressing the point. I have already made mine.
elguerodiablo: ...paying 50k a year each for millions of stoners to be in prison...
dj_spanmaster: National Merit Scholars don't bring in tens of millions of dollars per year.
NetOwl: This is not even debatable. At most schools, the athletic departments do not turn a profit.
Kome: I would genuinely love to see your citations for that, because that is not the case at the university I work for.Here's one that may help.
pion: Kome: I would genuinely love to see your citations for that, because that is not the case at the university I work for.Here's one that may help.LinkYou may be reluctant to divulge which university you work for, but is it comparable to, say, Texas, Ohio State, USC, or Nebraska? Then you're probably right, your athletics department turns a profit. But for the majority of schools, this is not the case (especially when you consider that the NCAA is much bigger than Div 1-A football).
