The first picture is the best in terms of giving people an idea of how big it is.

I don’t think it’s far fetched or crazy or horrible to think that Dylan might have possibly mumped kstate and their coaches (specifically Brian Anderson) over a little bit. They all apparently talked daily for over a year and apparently even asked Dylan to ok the recruitment and signing of the Florida guy. He then committed and subsequently bounced. During that commitment time, kstate might have missed out on signing the recent mu and tcu tv commits. In the grand scheme of things, probably not a huge deal and that’s how recruiting sometimes goes. Dylan seems super ridiculously good and I bet he kills it at notre dame or wherever he ends up at. I also don’t read other message boards etc but can imagine how over the top horrible people might be. I haven’t seen it but I have no doubt it’s out there and I bet it’s sad.

You cannot find Nike basketball shorts that go past the knees these days. It sucks.

You could before? Are you 5'5"? No offense to my 5'5" and shorter friends, I'm thinking about two very active posters in particular.

 :nono:

Knew this had to be directed at you. Im way past 5’6” and barely even post anymore.

I caught an early screening of BULLET TRAIN on Tuesday and it did not disappoint.  Lots of action and good old fashioned blood splattered violence mixed with a surprising amount of comedy.

Yes it was pretty good. Better than nope.

I like the outstretched arms JB painting. Maybe that and hold that rascal tiger by the neck instead of a rifle?
Keep the rifle but replace the bible in his other hand with a Tigger the tiger.

Rick Daris has also made claims of having IRL info if whit being a $!#*

To be fair, my insider irl info probably came from sd and sd would know.

I want you to stop typing and just sit in a quiet room and think about what you just wrote for five minutes becasue I know how smart you are. 

Doctors already chart and type notes all day long outlying their reasons for medical procedures and for doing what they do. If they don’t, they/their practice/their hospital doesn’t get paid, they lose their license to practice, business can get sued. I mean wtf?
I know all that and acknowledged it in a response you quoted:

Quote
All that would be required is for the doctor performing the procedure to provide a legitimate health-basis for the procedure (e.g. "ectopic pregnancy"). Which doctors do pretty routinely for all sorts of things.

I don't care if the decision is up to one doctor.  Makes no difference to me if one doctor makes the call.  Like I said, if two doctors is unworkable or unnecessarily redundant, get rid of the requirement.

Also what determines if the mothers life is at risk? What risk counts as “at risk”? 10% chance or more that she’ll die? 20%? 80% chance of death before dlew allows it? None of this is uncomplicated, easy or straightforward. You have to know that.
I'm fine with making "life at risk" as broad as necessary.  Any abnormal physical complication.

Everyone’s definition of abnormal will be different.. Who decides this ridiculously long list of abnormalities? Doctors? If so what group of them and why? How are they individually selected? If not doctors than who? Senate? Congress? A committee? Who’s on the committee and why? State by state or national group of people?  35 year olds are three times as likely to die as a result of pregnancy as a 20 year old is. Does that count as an abnormality or no? Why?
I'd be fine with leaving the determination of that to the doctor's individual discretion - so long as a doctor can articulate a legitimate physical health related reason that is a departure from an otherwise unremarkable pregnancy.  I don't think a 35 year old giving birth is "abnormal" and if something like that needs to be spelled out by statute for physicians, then fine. 

If you're uncomfortable with doctors having that amount of agency/responsibility, then sure, get a group of physicians (selected however you think is best) to come up with a physician-endorsed, proper definition of "complication presenting a physical threat to the mother" and codify every single possible scenario. 

I'm not married to any proposal.  But I do think there are ways for medical ethics and the malpractice law to come up with a reasonable ethical and legal framework that largely provides deference to doctors on the question.

So you don’t personally think a 35 year old giving birth is abnormal. Fine. What about a 52 year old? What about a 10 year old? Those are serious questions so take a minute before you answer them if you want.

What if an individual doctor in Salina does think that a 35 year old trying to have a baby is a worthwhile reason to abort though because that person is three times more likely to die than his patients who are 20? Are your going to be ok with that? Also, What if she is 35 with cancer and diabetes? Does it matter what stage the cancer is in? Does it matter what kind?  What if a different doctor thinks that high blood pressure is a reason because they are also more likely to die? Are you personally going to be ok with that or are you going to say oh that’s bullshit and they’re just using her high blood pressure as an excuse. I mean they are doctors giving medical reasons that prove it to be a higher than normal risk for pregnancy. You will be ok with that though. I just gave a couple of examples. There are thousands of individual factors which make a pregnancy more at risk to the mother. Thousands. You want to weigh in on all of them? Does that sound “reasonable”? You think we’ll get the American public or every doctor to agree on all of them?

I also don’t think you can honestly say it should be easy to throw a doctor and a lawyer in a room and come up with every contingency. It isn’t possible. You can’t honestly believe that. First, you aren’t going to get a group of people to agree and if you do then you cherry picked the people based on what you already knew about them. There are also way way way too many individual medical issues/complications/problems to make rules or laws on them all. The flowchart would be almost infinite.

Women with high blood pressure are 50% more likely to die. Does that count? Why? What is used to determine high blood pressure? If the high blood pressure could be fixed through medication should the mother be required to take medication to lower her blood pressure and then go through with the birth? Why or why not?

I think part of the problem of the pro-life argument is that, if you truly accept the arguments that fetuses are babies and abortion is murder, there can't be exceptions.  That argument has to end with a total ban because it's banning murder.  There's no real space for exceptions or compromise with the other side when you view (or purposefully depict) them as baby murderers.

IMO, pro-lifers would be a lot better off improving access to birth control and sex education to prevent abortions like Colorado did.  When they are unwilling to take steps that have been proven effective to prevent abortion, I see the goal as not preventing baby murder but as forcing people to live by their religious dogma.
This is wrong.  There can be rational exceptions -- at least in the case of serious health threat to the mother (which is universally excepted in every "near-total" ban i've seen).  I also think there are some fairly compelling arguments in the case of rape (recently i heard some heady lack-of-duty-based argument akin to the violinist thought experiment), but they haven't convinced me.

I agree that accessible birth control should be favored.  Also agree that systems should be in place to help with expenses. 

That's fair for life of the mother - but the process of making an exception for the life of the mother has sounded horrendous and unresonable in a lot of states that have bans. 
It seems fairly plain to me.  All that would be required is for the doctor performing the procedure to provide a legitimate health-basis for the procedure (e.g. "ectopic pregnancy"). Which doctors do pretty routinely for all sorts of things.

Your view that it seems plain is more reasonable, how they actually get implemented has been far more intrusive.  There are states that require multiple doctors to sign off that the health of the mother is at risk.  Because of these laws, many hospitals consult a lawyer.  All of this to make an innocent woman, having likely the worst day of her life, prove she's not committing a crime and wait to receive care while her life is at risk.  Despite following all legal reporting procedures when terminating the pregnancy of a 10 year old child/rape victim, a doctor is being investigated and harassed by the AG of Indiana so he can get publicity.  They allow "exceptions" and then the goal becomes to make those exceptions as few or difficult to access as possible.

While I'd generally like fewer abortions, I trust women to make these decisions for themselves far more than I trust the GOP with them.
Yeah, I don't know.  I don't think it would be overly burdensome for doctors to provide their medical rationale for performing the procedure.  If requiring a second doctor to review and sign of on it is practically unworkable, then it shouldn't be a requirement.  If the health of the mother is at risk, perform the procedure.  Afterwards, write down why you performed it.   

I don't think these problems are without some fairly straightforward solutions.

Also, why in gods name would a licensed doctor need another doctor signing off on the medical care they give their patients. Monthly or annual peer reviews? Sure. Double checking what they do on every patient just to allow them to do it? That’s absurd. Should I have to have two doctors sign off on the fact that my child has strept throat so he can get amoxicillin? Required to see two orthos if I want knee surgery? If not, why not? Why just for abortions? Also none of that is straightforward. Medical care is complicated. Also what determines if the mothers life is at risk? What risk counts as “at risk”? 10% chance or more that she’ll die? 20%? 80% chance of death before dlew allows it? Once you have decided a percentage then let me know how that’s calculated? Is that easy and straightforward or do we take things like the mothers age, race, overall health into account as well? If so how are those things added and calculated? Who determines? Who gets sued if the mother wants an abortion because she is at risk but isn’t allowed to because you have determined her to be “not at risk enough” and she dies. None of this is uncomplicated, easy or straightforward. You have to know that.

Wonder who it is? Keyontae would be the most fun for this year but the RJ dude would make me super excited for the future. Who would we rather have!!!?!??

The problem with saying we should spend money on birth control and all that stuff is that a lot of Americans are only in it for themselves and not for the good of the people or community or America as a whole. I’d be willing to bet that the people demanding no abortions highly correlate with the lower my taxes and stop giving people food stamps crowd. Very opinionated while simultaneously not willing to sacrifice a single thing.

13
This pretend war with the pac is pretty losery. It’s like pretending that us and Iowa state have an actual beef. As kstate fans and as a conference we should set our sites a little higher for who want to argue with. We are Kansas freaking state you guys and the big 12 takes dumps on the pac.

Lost in the we have a bunch of chud players on the worst team.

Rany or Sam McDowell brought Up that the unvaxxed players can’t hang out with anyone.

So we have half our roster and the best players on the team choosing to stay isolated from teammates etc. zero camaraderie, culture has led to a terrible clubhouse.

eff those guys.

I’m not sure what the rules are right now but I think there were other team wide rules/restrictions such as whether players could leave their hotels on road trips that are (were) based on total team vac percentage. So if not enough players/coaches were vaccinated, the whole team suffers. That has to cause some resentment as well.

KITN you have any properties that you airbnb or vbro? seems like some are banking on those in mhk

Once my kids move out and I can retire (10 years?), I am going to vrbo my place in the fall for football games, etc and live somewhere else for a few months. Different place every year. Colorado? Sure. Ireland? Why not! Stupid/small Mexico beach town that SD hates? You betcha.

Can someone slap John brown stepping on and squashing a Missouri tiger or something similar so I can slap it on a shirt for the game?

I might try. I like making t-shirts.

Thanks cd!

Does the shirt have to have JB stepping on a tiger or would a meth pipe suffice?

Are you guys on alcohol? Nope was great.

The only thing above ok about nope was keke Palmer. The rest was meh and the movie itself seemed like a reboot of Signs which is twenty years old and also not very good.

21
Nope was… fine, I guess?  I have no rough ridin' idea why people are losing their minds over it.
I went in not knowing anything about it and was underwhelmed.  Could have been an episode of X-files and not a full length movie.

Agree with everything and honestly thought it was kind of stupid and leaning towards not very good.

The whole thing is pretty funny really and in hindsight, him saying that he didn’t ever see himself decommitting or entering the transfer portal should’ve probably been a warning sign that we would do exactly that. Kind of excited to see how it all plays out for him. Seems like a good enough kid.

NIL, NIL, NIL

You sure? I keep seeing this on twitter but nothing at all to substantiate it. Is claiming NIL just going to be a standard go to for fans of a school who lose a recruiting battle?

I hung out with a guy a few weeks ago that is high up in a high level athletic department. He said it’s all NIL. Like that’s all it is now. You’d like to think coaching staffs or success on the field or facilities matter. They apparently do not.

Experience? Experience, exshmrerience. Look at the school, for Christ's sake. It's the second best school in Oregon. Experience come and go, DLew, but Ore St, "the Beav," they only switch conferences once, maybe twice in a lifetime.

Very embarrassed that it took me until “experience come and go, dlew”. Don’t ever change sd.

I still haven’t figured it out because I keep reading it as Billy Madison giving his industrial revolution speech.
