chimp_ninja: The helium issue is the only real one. Helium used to be close to useless, and was priced as such.
PogoStick Jesus: ...the traditional alcohol enduced stomach pumping at LSU.
thecpt: Ridiculous geographic set ups for conferences that force teams and fans to travel across the country? Of course a Texas team should be in the Big East.
A Fark Handle: and forces the tennis, track, cross country, soccer, swimming teams to travel cross county by non-charter missing days of classes...don't forget that fact.
strangeguitar: I seriously read that as "releasing babboons after the first touchdown..."That would be the greatest thing you could ever possibly see on television,

chimp_ninja: The helium issue is the only real one. Helium used to be close to useless, and was priced as such. It's also finite, has unique physical properties, and short of a nuclear reactor you aren't making any more of it. (And with a nuclear reactor, you aren't making enough to matter.) And because we piss it away at a ridiculous rate, the price has jumped 10% in the last year, and is only going up.There are certain scientific and engineering processes that need helium in quantity, notably superconducting magnets and electronics manufacturing. Think MRIs cost too much now? Wait a bit. And researchers, especially physicists, churn through the stuff. Quantum computing, superconductivity, Bose-Einstein condensates, ultra-sensitive detectors, etc. all came out of experiments using liquid helium.It would be one thing if we were using helium to keep the American semiconductor manufacturing industry afloat, or something like that. But one of the biggest uses of helium is still... stupid farking balloons. (The balloon thing is also obnoxious because those hunks of plastic come back down sooner or later.)
