  1. Universal Basic Income

    Sam Harris and Joe Rogan talked about the on Rogan's podcast one time. Basically Harris said, a UBI brought on by mass automation would allow people to pursue useful hobbies and make new inventions. Optimistic thinking on his part. I tend to think it will just turn us into a real life version of the people in the movie Wall-E. 😂
  2. California Dems Going Even More Liberal

    Smart decision if you ask me. The voters on the left in this country seem to be going more left (see Bernie Sanders) and the Right seems to be going more right (Donald Trump and Tea Party Evangelicals). It will benefit the Democratics greatly to further distance themselves from the corporate democrat neo liberal ways of the modern party and embrace being the polar opposite of what the Republicans are becoming.
  3. Good hire IMO. I can't wait to see what he can do about Jordan Hare. And he's made deals with Nike before. Excellent.

  5. 2018 playoff - I’m calling it now

    You may be right. They may not regress at all. But there is a huge difference between that pathetic Arky team at home and Washington in Atlanta.
  6. 2018 playoff - I’m calling it now

    I actually expect a slight regression offensively for the Washington game. I think the offense will be very good by week 3 or 4, but I know better than to expect a Gus team to be on it offensively in game 1.
  7. 2018 playoff - I’m calling it now

    We lose to Washington, and Texas AM or LSU and then Alabama. Beat Georgia and give them their only regular season loss. Georgia beats number 1 Bama in Atlanta. The dogs start talking trash.We Finish 9-3. Play in the Peach Bowl again against Oklahoma and lose. Playoff is 1.Clemson, 2.Ohio State, 3.Georgia, 4.Alabama........NCG is Alabama vs Georgia II. Alabama gets revenge on Georgia and wins 18.
  8. Kerryon Johnson to Enter NFL Draft

    It's amazing what getting embarrassed by a non power 5 opponent will do for your desire to stick around. I don't blame him. He'd be lucky to make it through another season of what they put him through this year.
  9. Kerryon Johnson to Enter NFL Draft

    So are we assuming that Pettway is going pro? Because if he came back that would be amazing.
  10. Season in review

    I'm very concerned with the future of Auburn football. Having to play a dominant Bama program every year is already tough, but UGA is about to be dominant as well. Having to play these teams at the end of the season is going to kill every season. Recruiting is just going to get worse, because Kirby is going to take all the Georgia talent. Texas AM is probably about to become a main player, too. And we are stuck with Mr. mediocrity. This is a sad time for Auburn football. And I hate that so much.
  11. FCC Announces Plans To Repeal Net Neutrality

    The most concerning thing about this to me is the idea that the companies can essentially make whatever sites they want cost a lot more than the other sites. Though it is likely to be a situation where sites like youtube and netflix cost the most, this can make it possible for a whole new politically based beast to be born. ie. CNN and MSNBC cost $20 and Fox costs $5. Or vice versa. Should be interesting to follow this over the years and see how the big dogs in Washington find a way to influence it. Either way, it sucks badly for everyone involved, except for the large telecom corporations.
  12. Update on Arkansas HC search

    It would be incredibly embarrassing for Auburn to lose a coach to Arkansas after the season that we had. Also, who tf would we even go after. All the good coaches are either gone or getting ready to be grabbed up. Auburn is in a situation where they either pay up or get screwed, from what I'm seeing.
  13. Auburn might have a back up plan

    Everyone knows that Auburn's backup plan is Gary Patterson. And Patterson's backup is Bill Cowher.
  14. The Victory Song Thread!

    This one also screams Victory, to me.
  15. The Victory Song Thread!

    Borrowed this one from The Replacements. Great movie and great band!
