LOL... our community hero. Who gave you the right to trespass on someone's property, let alone paint it? That's just the same as tagging it. Start messing with the wrong person's property and then threatening them with assult is likely to get you shot.


Oh, okay tough guy.

You appear very angry at being too poor to take the ferry. I understand, but you should see someone about that before it becomes a problem, because if you don't, the next thing you know you'll be embarrassing yourself on some internet forum.

I didn't feel humiliated when I was stopped and my bag was checked in a subway station. This happened twice. I understand there is a real risk of terrorism in NYC and all citizens should willingly cooperate. Likewise in a high crime area, there is nothing wrong if people are stopped and frisked. It's for their own safety. It might save their own child some day, who otherwise might have become a victim of the gun that was confiscated while frisking a person.


Bag checks on mass transit are not the same thing as the NYPD stop and frisk policy. And anyone who has paid the slightest attention to what that policy has failed to accomplish and just exactly how blatantly unconstitutional it is knows that. But nice try at a false equivalency. You might also want to read up on the Fourth Amendment, unless you are too committed to licking the boots of the increasingly militarized police.

At least 5 killed at Reno air show, authorities say

September 16, 2011 | 6:24 pm

At least 5 people were killed after a plane crashed into the VIP stands at an air show in Reno late Friday afternoon.

The plane crashed near the bleachers at the National Championship Air Races, said Michelle Anderson, a spokeswoman for the Reno Fire Department. The pilot was reported dead, as were four others.

Mike Houghton, president and chief executive of the Reno Air Racing Assn., said at a news conference that 40 to 50 people were injured in the crash. He identified the pilot as Jimmy Leeward, a real estate developer from Ocala, Fla., who has been racing in Reno since 1975.

The full scope of the disaster was unclear. Officials described a scene of chaos as they tried to assess the damage.

"We have five bodies out there, but they transported a whole load to hospitals," Lt. Mac Venzon of the Washoe County Sheriff's Department told The Times. "We're just trying to establish a scene and get everybody cleared out of here, and then we'll know more," he said.


GrovePath is terrified of an airplane falling on his head-you should have been here when he was posting about the Red Bull Air Races.

I think the truth is a lot simpler than deciding which state's residents are the worst drivers. There are just greater numbers of horrible drivers everywhere. I chalk it up to the increasing stupidification of America and the rampant unwarranted sense of entitlement displayed by the majority of people these days. Courtesy and common sense seems to have deserted many many people.

Now, GET OFF MY LAWN.

No, it does make it illegitimate. He's not relating the average to a range, if so where is the average? An average is a single number, it's not a matter of me liking or disliking it, expressing a single number as a range is incorrect and misleading.

If Elmo has 3 firemen, and he pays Big Bird one bean, Cookie Monster two beans and Oscar three beans then, the average wage is two beans not one to three beans.

Here's an example for you (sorry, no elmo pictures to make this easy) -- 5 salaries that I just made up:
120k
125k
128k
135k
156k
.... The AVERAGE is 132.8k, which is between the range of 120-156...(you know, like exactly what Fulup says in his quote)

Whoa! Revolutionary math!


It certainly is revolutionary math to express a very precise number as a range.
Now we're going to use our imaginations. Imagine Elmo writing a letter to the Sesame Journal complaining that Mr Hooper is charging an astronomical price for a box of Monsterberry Crunch. Imagine the price was $5 but Elmo decides to express that very precise number as between $1 and $10, now try to imagine why he would do that.


Quote:
As for your correction of semantics - good for you.


It's not semantics, it's math and I resent the fact that you're implying I'm playing with words to make my numbers fit. If we're talking salary then those are the numbers we are dealing with, we do not include the two beans Big Bird got as a bonus for saving Bert and Ernie from a house fire or the half a banana Oscar found in the bottom of his garbage can.

Quote:
You state: "Fulop clearly states 'an average salary between $120,000 and $156,000'."

Unfortunately, that's not what Fulup said. This is what he said:
"...an astronomical one-third of the Fire Department are supervisors with an average salary between $120,000 and $156,000 for each person."

Nowhere in that quote does he say that 120 & 156 are averages -- he says the average falls between those numbers. See my example above for how that math might work...

I'd suggest before you try to rip someone for not understanding the math and/or misquoting you - maybe you want to make sure you're actually quoting things correctly and understand the math. Now, how about we discuss the merits of what each is saying rather than try to hijack the thread with a math lesson.


You do not know what a misquote is, neither are you capable of understanding a quote in relation to an argument. I quoted Fulop correctly and in relation to the fact that he was talking about Salary, not bonuses or overtime. I don't see what your wider quote proves in that or any respect other than to give you an opportunity to once again state, for the third time in a single post, that one number falls between two other numbers.
Please try to be more concise.

This post was brought to you by the letter F - M and the number 120,000 - 156,000.


Man, just keep digging that hole.... You are really only making things much worse for yourself. And no, you apparently do not understand math or statistics.

It's sort of an obstacle course race around large air-filled pylons. Lots of acrobatic turns. Here are some vids on the Red Bull Racing site:

No, it's not. It's about three hours of practice on Friday, two hours of qualifying on Saturday and the three hour race on Sunday. Perhaps you should all read about what an F1 race is really all about before spouting off. NASCAR it is not.

And while I'm a huge F1 fan, I really don't see this happening in JC--when you look at the other venues F1 has chosen for a Grand Prix, this city just doesn't have the amenities and infrastructure. Or the money.

It's funny that in Europe and Asia cities are falling over one another to host a Grand Prix but there has not been one in the US since 2006. And as for the amount of money this would bring to JC if it did happen, be careful what you wish for. Bernie Eccelstone, the commercial rights holder of F1, is notoriously greedy and has put the screws to cities after they have expended millions preparing for a race. Montreal and the nearly-canceled Canadian Grand Prix is merely the most recent example. It will be televised live on Speed this coming Sunday, by the way--go Jenson--you should watch to see what it's really all about. And for the record, the Montreal race is held in an urban park, Parc Jean-Drapeau. And so is the Australian race, come to think of it--Albert Park in Melbourne.

And although being able to walk to one of the greatest sporting events in the world would be effing awesome, if I'm honest, I have to say I would prefer that F1 returned to its US roots and held races at historic tracks like Watkins Glen, Sears Point, Road Atlanta (ok, not so historic, but still) or Elkhart Lake. These are purpose-built, longstanding race courses that would not have all the sturm und drang associated with a new course And it would be less costly to upgrade one of them to the needs of a Grand Prix than to build a new track. But you can bet your last dollar that Bernie will never go for that--just look at the monstrous courses that places like Bahrain, Dubai, Turkey and China have recently built for their races. The truth is that the US races have been a joke since the sport abandoned the old tracks, with the "parking lot races" in Dallas, Vegas, etc. and the train wrecks that were the Indianapolis races on the jerry-rigged infield track at the Speedway. Until a major US city gets behind a race like the European and Asian cities do--and has the money--I don't think we will see a US race.
