    Agreed. Mine would like to be more 195, but we'll see if he caps out around 5'10 or pushes another inch or two higher.

    Religious right doing it’s thing

    I can't imagine the sheer quantity of arrogance and self-importance required to believe (and publicly state) that your prayer resulted in the death of another human being. Simply on a humanity level, it's absolutely horrifying. It's even worse from a purported man of the cloth who leads others.

    Weight lifting thread/advice

    Sounds like it. 175 is a pretty good weight for him right now. Hopefully your son gets to where he wants to be.

    Weight lifting thread/advice

    When my son got cut from the HS baseball team as a freshman at 15, he got the message bigger/stronger/faster (he was something like 5'7, 125). He went to work with a former baseball coach who is also a personal trainer and gym owner and he did a ton of core work, squats, cleans, deadlifts...

    Breonna Taylor

    Yes, the lack of body cam footage is very concerning. It's amazing how often there's a "malfunction" of the body cam when someone catches the dead.

    Breonna Taylor

    My biggest beef with this is the late night "no knock" warrant. I think it puts police in a really crappy position. Even if they announce and knock (I'm skeptical because they went to the effort of getting a no-knock), it's a little after midnight and the couple is in bed. Are they going to...

    Voting: Why shouldn't there be a test/minimum requirement?

    I'd be more interested in testing candidates for office.

    Florida Gov De Whiner trying to shit all over 1st Amendment

    So we're specifically scoping this to restaurants now? There's not much in this proposal that I do like (because Constitution), but the harassment aspect is really poorly defined. Also, what would this do for a business that does bad stuff? Thinking back to protests in Charlotte outside...

    This was my thought exactly.

    Favorite division of NFL?

    NFC Norris Division Secondarily, I live in the CLT, so the NFC South is a lot of fun.

    There's a really good Heaven's Gate podcast. Definitely worth worth a listen.

    Republicans- does it bother you that your party lied to you about the SCOTUS pick in 2016?

    Agree 100%, particularly on Garland. I thought he was a pretty classically qualified candidate (and at a time when I expected HRC to win, thought he was a gift of a nominee, frankly)....but had they done the hearings and voted him down, fine, that's the process and if you don't have the votes...

    Republicans- does it bother you that your party lied to you about the SCOTUS pick in 2016?

    I'm not a Republican, per se, though I voted that way a lot prior to Trump.....it bothers me, but the reality is that the party with the power is always going to use the power. If 2016 had been different and the Dems had the Senate and Scalia died in September, I have no doubts that the Dems...

    *****Official Cubs 2020 thread*****

    Better yet, if you go give your pre-COVID self 4 facts and ask yourself to pick the Cubs record, what would you say based on the following: KB, Rizzo, Contreras, Javy and Schwarber all have OPS below .800 Happ and Heyward have been the best offensive players by far Quintana and Chatwood have...

    He's ok, he's just lucky the Brewers didn't care and played like idiots today.

    He decided to pitch like an idiot and wasn't trying.

    If it's a really big game, that's when he'd get his hit and then the next guy would get out.

    Knock Knock. Who's there? 9-11. 9-11 who?

    I at least had the 1984 Cubs as a warm-up.
