    If something happens to me....

    Really not much different than any number of abused women who've told friends, or even the court, that if anything happened to them it would likely be their ex. It was pretty sad, by all accounts from people on the forum who knew him IRL he was a great guy.

    Thoughts on psychological savagery?

    This example isn't from a press conference, but it was psychological savagery IMO: Prior to a race Mark Spitz went into the men's room and there were a number of urinals, with only one being used, and the user was one of his competitors.

    If something happens to me....

    I get up fairly early and don't turn any lights on when I shower, and I shave in the shower going just by feel, even around my goatee and mustache. It isn't that hard.

    The bounce would be ever so slightly different, not as much as using regular balls in Denver, or vice versa. There might also be a minuscule difference in air resistance, which might make the ball land a millimeter or two shorter. Apart from the reference frames I mentioned in my previous post...

    Effect of air bubble structure on tennis ball

    Do you think the average person is capable of becoming a D1 athlete, given the proper environment?

    Yep, one of my nieces is a full ride D1 softball player, she was top 50 ranked in the nation while she was in high school. I asked her father if they came out ahead financially after all the travel teams/coaching/etc, and he said no, they pretty much broke even.

    TW Brandography Week 2

    I wonder if the serous membrane (gut) of different breeds of cows, or differently fed/raised cows play differently. For example, would gut from a Tajima (the source of Kobe or Wagyu beef) be significantly different from a Guernsey or Holstein?
