    Reuben would you agree that over half of hockey's fanbase is a direct result of white flight?

    There are definitely racist hockey fans but more than half of the fan base? Probably not. Maybe in Boston. If white people liked hockey only because they thought basketball was too black the NHL would be much bigger than the NBA.

    There has been a concerted effort in the league during the Bettman era to increase the audience. I think there's better parity in the league than the NBA. I don't think about basketball enough to compare the two though because I think basketball is boring.

    Lead story on the news was a guy beating his daughter to death after she peed her pants before making it to the bathroom. She was 2.

    Another story was about a guy letting his stepson cry in a crib for two hours with a broken leg because he was playing video games.

    These people should be shot in the center of the city and let everyone watch.

    Practically everyone here is an admin guys. If hockey-based smileys make you uncomfortable you're free to create ones that better reflect your own interests like manga or whatever.

    What happened at UC-Santa Barbara is really, really sad and fucked up. I tried to watch his video made the day before and couldn't get through more than the first 90 seconds without giving myself the willies.

    I don't think NYT had even mentioned the source of the rockets in earlier reports. Just that "4 boys died in gaza explosion"

    For a while, I thought "Man, our kids kids are probably going to be the last generation to die out before the mass extinction", then I thought "No, our kids". When I read things like this

    Officials have long known that hundreds of miles of city water lines have deteriorated and need replacement, with many past the century mark. But in recent years, L.A.'s elected leaders have been unwilling to hike water rates enough to fix them more rapidly. As it stands, the city-owned Department of Water and Power is on track to replace main water lines only once every 300 years.

    http://www.latimes.com/local/cityhall/la-me-ucla-flooding-20140731-story.html#page=1

    I think "no, we've only got a few more years left." Because we're always reminded doing anything to sustain the species is always impossible because it costs too much money, or will maybe cost certain people making enough money hand over fist and discourage them from employing people in hazardous jobs in , like, West Virginia. As if "money" is this thing that we didn't invent out of thin air and THAT'S the substance we can't live without. And if people want water or air, they're just going to have to pay for it.

    Would you just look at the Chicago Tribune homepage telling me I am going to live longer than ever smushed in between these other stories?
