Goddamn, how great was this movie?

During the 1980s Muhammed Omar, joined the Afghan mujahideen in their war against the Soviet Union and the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan.

He founded the Taliban movement in 1994.

First off, CIA funding dwindled to nearly nothing years before the Taliban even came into existence (and was funneled through Pakistan).  So if you're trying to say the U.S. directly armed the Taliban, you're wrong (as usual). 

The Taliban was formed by Pashtun clerics and students, some of which were in the Mujahedeen at some point in time, but had become disillusioned in the control of Afghanistan by the actual former Mujahedeen warlords.   Substantial rank and file came from the students in the schools.   The Pakistani's and the Saudi's created the Taliban, they just happened to have a leader with Mujahideen ties. 

In fact the new Mujahideen now resists the Taliban in Panjshir.

Did we not push $200 million to them as late as 1992?

Who is them?  The Pakistani's?





This reminds me of this and I love it.

Essentially Flyertalk / Brainstorming thread on what to do for Brady
« on: December 05, 2020, 03:27:08 PM »
Especially if you were with him as he was going through it this past year or know what his family is already doing or needs, but also anyone who has something in mind, post any ideas here.

I'd have to be educated on what the roadblocks to date have been, but I was thinking that maybe gE takes up his cause of getting Gene and KSU to add wrestling and figures out what needs to be done aside from his steady PI and gets that accomplished.

They are and he is hilarious and I want to be able to occasionally post something about dax's posts there but I don't want to post in them and ruin how it's just dax talking to himself.  So this thread can be for that purpose.

Essentially Flyertalk / FATTYFEST 2020???????
« on: November 15, 2020, 12:44:40 PM »
Nope!

But check out the website updates:

The fundraising is complete!  Go check out the Fatty room in Hale Library next time it's safe to do so.  https://www.fattyfund.org/fatty-fund-1

That said, FattyFest will continue once we're past this crap.  Freed of the burden of having to raise money, FattyFest will proceed as an annual pak to celebrate Fatty and all things EMAW.  https://www.fattyfund.org/fatty-fest

IMPORTANT - to make sure we still have a home for FattyFest, support Auntie Mae's Parlor as they tough it out through all this.  You can join their Imbibers Club or buy merch from their website, https://www.auntiemaes.com/, and of course drink/buy your booze drugs from them in the meantime whenver feasible in MHK.

T-Y, all who've helped over the years.  Assuming we're back at it in 2021, we're hoping to do something to thank and honor the contributors at that 'Fest.

From the original:

A lot of journalists have “f) some cnn people were arrested for a little bit” at the top of their lists.
Yes, this reminds me of when Frank was mean to some townie journos and they all lost their minds.

:lol:




Keep the real victims, the journalists, in your T&P's tonight.

On this theme, journalists are VERY concerned that Trump falsely said DC police weren't helping with protest control last night



Also this lol

Heros




Journalists are really pissed about journalists getting shot with rubber bullets

"Everyone has adversity during the year. How do you deal with it? That's part us, as a staff, part leadership and then part them," Weber said after Monday's game. "What is it about? Toughness. Do you have toughness? Do you have effort? Do you have a great attitude? And then what's your motive? Why are you here? Are you trying to help K-State have a successful season? If you add those all up, you have a great team. That's what we have to really focus on."

I couldn't find the home maintenance/care thread and it wouldn't matter anyway b/c I've never read it to know if this is covered. 

I finally committed to one of these things this year.  Some dipshit in my stack was putting the stuff that fresh food is packed with down their drain, backed up the pipe and caused water in mine.  I didn't think it was that bad, but it's going to end up having me replacing the entire floor except for the carpeted bedroom and one tiled bathroom, plus all the cabinetry, countertops and backsplash.  Basically, with the water having touched the wood floor and the island that is cabinet material, everything of that material has to be replaced b/c they can't match it.

Anyway, the floors were engineered wood.  I can replace it with like-quality engineered wood, but I'm leaning towards getting slightly less expensive luxury vinyl for practical purposes and having more flexibility if more crap happens in the future.  I'll utilize the price difference in upgrading the other stuff.  Smart?  Dumb?

Assuming that's the move, anyone know anything about vinyl flooring?  I can't find crap online that clearly says what the "best" one is, and the guy at the store was telling me they're all pretty much the same and that the price differences are in how good the graphics are, which seemed like bullshit.  Surely there are different levels of quality in the construction of the floor material itself, right?

It seemed like there's good designs/colors in every brand and sub-type.  I want to know the best floor type/brand/model first and then select the design/color out of that field. 

What's the best flooring?  Within the LV world, I think there's no max price I'm limited by because it's all cheaper than what it would be to get engineered wood.

After the flooring is settled on, this thread will move on to cabinetry, counters and backsplash.  T-Y.

First adversity overcome!

September 15, 2019
By Corbin McGuire

STARKVILLE, Miss. – K-State faced roughly no adversity in its first two wins this season. The Wildcats knew that would end in Week 3, but they were prepared to bounce back from it in a 31-24 win at No. 23 Mississippi State on Saturday in Davis Wade Stadium.
 
The Wildcats (3-0) scored 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter, after MSU put up 17 straight, to clinch the program's first road win against a Power Five opponent since topping Miami 28-24 in 2011. It also marked the program's first ever road win over an opponent in the SEC at the time the game was played.

"It was a great day. I knew we would have adversity and I knew our guys wouldn't panic and we'd have resolve, and that's kind of what happened," K-State head coach Chris Klieman said. "It was a really good football team that we played. It was punch, counter-punch."
 
K-State's Malik Knowles delivered a momentum-changing blow early in the fourth quarter of a game played in 100-degree humid temperatures. The freshman receiver tied the game at 24 with a 100-yard kickoff return. It ended a long dry spell from K-State, which included only two true offensive series and 15 total yards in the third quarter.
 
"It was a big play when we needed it," Klieman said. "It was a great job by the guys up front and getting the wall set. I was happy Malik could make it the whole way because I know he was cramping up as well today."
 
After the special teams score, the Wildcat defense forced two consecutive three-and-outs to give them five such stops for the game. K-State quarterback Skylar Thompson followed the second fourth quarter stop with a six-play, 53-yard scoring drive to take the lead. He ended it with a 15-yard touchdown pass to senior receiver Dalton Gruntley with 5:37 to play.
 
"We knew we were going to battle adversity, but I feel like we handled it well as a whole, as a team, as coaches," running back James Gilbert, with a team-high 59 rushing yards on 17 attempts, said. "Nobody pointed a finger. We just stepped up to the challenge and made the plays we needed to (in order) to win the game."
 
K-State turned MSU over on downs on the ensuing drive. On fourth-and-16, AJ Parker and Elijah Sullivan capped the stop by hitting a diving MSU quarterback Garrett Schrader propelling him into a helicopter spin that forced him to fall a yard shy of the first down marker.
 
"This was going to be a four-quarter slugfest. That's what we told our guys," Klieman said. "Now, how much resolve do you have in the fourth quarter? How much do you believe in yourself? How much can you raise your level of play in the fourth quarter? I thought we had some really good stops on defense."
 
K-State overcame a trio of lost fumbles with the strong fourth quarter, two on muffed punt returns and another on a Parker interception return. MSU turned those Wildcat turnovers into 17 points between the second and third quarters.
 
"That's football. Those things happen," Klieman said. "It's just how you respond to those things and I thought our defense did a great job."
 
The Wildcats also turned the Bulldogs over three times, turning two of them into a combined 10 points.
 
Senior safety Denzel Goolsby, who led the team with 11 tackles, snagged an interception that bounced off the hands of a Mississippi State receiver in the first quarter. It led to a 35-yard field goal from Blake Lynch.
 
About three minutes before halftime, freshman linebacker Daniel Green scooped up a fumble to set up a 30-yard scoring drive. MSU answered, however, with a 31-second touchdown drive, finished by a 35-yard touchdown pass to take momentum into the half.
 
"Today was the ultimate test to see where our football team was. We knew we were going to battle adversity, but I feel like we handled it well," Gilbert said, as K-State will have a bye week before opening up Big 12 play at Oklahoma State on September 28. "I feel like going into the bye week everybody can get their bodies back (fresh) and we can start conference play and keep it rolling."

« on: February 22, 2019, 01:02:00 PM »
More details to come, but FattyFest will be Saturday 9/21.  That's the first football bye week.

We may have something going in the late morning or noon-ish, but the main trivia/auction part will be in the mid-to-late afternoon and we expect there to be some show/pak'n at Mae's on through the night.  Book your hotels/cars accordingly.

SE: K-State MBB Ready to Face Adversity, Showed So in 71-59 Win Over Georgia State

By Corbin McGuire
 
 
If history has taught us anything about this No. 25/24 K-State men's basketball team, it's that adversity does not rattle these Wildcats for long, if at all. Most often, it brings out the best out of them.
 
The latest example: K-State's 71-59 win against Georgia State in Bramlage Coliseum on Saturday that snapped a two-game losing streak. The Wildcats (7-2) finished the game on a 21-6 run without seniors Claws and Deathbite. They did so against a Georgia State team picked to win the Sun Belt Conference and led by an NBA Draft prospect in D'Marcus Simonds.
 
"Things happen for a reason, I really believe that. We had to have some adversity," K-State head coach oscar Weber said. "I didn't want this adversity that we had tonight but hopefully it will help us grow as a team."

Does this mean that the amount of money we'd pay assistants was set in stone or the amount we'd pay the head coach was set in stone or something else?

It couldn't possibly mean that we were only going to pay whoever got hired as head coach what eff head is getting, right? 

Quote
BS: As we get into the details over the next few days, were there any stipulations put on Coach Klieman or any of the candidates for that matter about the current coaching staff retention?

GT: No there's not. As you go through this process, we have some really great assistants. All we told every candidate is look, we have some great staff. We encourage you to interview as many or all of them, whatever you feel your needs are, because obviously they have coaches they're familiar with and coaches that they've coached with or people they've worked with that are maybe at other institutions. But we never want to say you have to hire somebody, that puts that coach in a bad position and puts the assistants in a bad position if you think about it because they only want to work if they're wanted too. We did tell them here are our staff that we think would be great additions if you wanted to keep them but that's up to you as the head coach. There was never a stipulation on any, whether it was Coach Klieman or any of our candidates, and there were never any real financial issues. They knew exactly what the contract was going to be and those that were interested knew what our parameters were. People take jobs and don't get jobs for a lot of different reasons.

Kansas State Football / Which other schools

... have to eat our collective ass with respect to being the one that could finally pull this guy away from north dakota and the $300k/year high life he was living?

After seeing the info promulgated by kstatesports, I can only assume that we had to beat off multiple suitors this year and that eff head rejected many in years past.  It probably wasn't our money that got him as I read he's lowest paid in our low-medium power 5 conference, so I'm guessing it came down to the PEOPLE, specifically being in gene's grandfather'd friends and family plan.

Who else tried and failed to procure the services of this missouri valley icon only for gene to swoop in and bring him into the family?

Kansas State Football / Clue - LHC Bill Snyder firing edition
« on: November 23, 2018, 12:21:29 PM »
KSO and other media types are in full-blown coaching search mode, with a presumption that Bill will be gone after Saturday's game.  I've seen nothing that suggests Bill will voluntarily leave, so for the speculation about Venables along with a host of D-2 coaches to be warranted, that means KSU will be firing Bill.

Who do you think will do it, how and when/where?  Or, does it turn out that nobody in the KSU mansion will have what it took to shoot, stab, choke or bash the figurative skull that is Snyder's tenure with a candlestick?
