    "You cannot cheat without being caught and you cannot win or lose"

    I have to disagree there. Cheating is wildly prevalent at the high school level. It seemed every tournament I'd catch a guy telling me he bogeyed instead of doubled. Once is an honest mistake, every other hole is a cheater that has made forgetting a shot or two a habit.

    My little brother was cheated out of 4 district championships and qualifying for state his junior year (He blew them out his senior year). The biggest problem is the fact that kids don't know what's cheating and what isn't, and the coaches are just as clueless. My team was absolutely loathed by some schools because of how hard we were on cheaters. I remember on multiple occasions, when passing our cards around, jumping in between certain guys to make sure I had a suspected cheaters card. They hated us for it.

    I haven't encountered it in the Amateur arena, the city championships and state qualifiers I've played have all been made up of the hardcore rule book thumpers (like myself). So at least that.

    Blue-

    I played through a group of college kids yesterday, and one of them was nice enough to tend the flag for me. When I lagged a putt to around two feet, the guy asked "You wana pick that up?"

    The fact that that thought crossed his mind tells me he doesn't finish everything. Or he was testing me, I know I've definitely told people to "pick it up" just to see what they'd do. haha

  • Oil pushes back through $50 [View news story]
    Bull-

    I remember reading about analysts saying the IPO boom in 99-2000 was the "new normal". The more things change...

    Something else about the layoffs in the oil industry...

    In my area it isn't just the companies and their employees, it's also the welding businesses that specialized in pipes and such that are closing shop, the hotels that housed the workers, and the gravel companies that were building roads to and from the work sites.
    We'll be fine, but there's a lot of people being hurt by the cutbacks.

    That's quite a stretch...that's like telling someone that's complaining about bad drivers that that's "good old liberty at work". There are rip offs in every economic system.

    Back to the original point though it is a great deal and I plan on going out there much more often. $15 to walk is usually what you have to pay for those small town 9 hole pastures with holes in them.

    The map though is like charging for the remote to your TV, or the steering wheel in a car, the key to your hotel room, or, dare I say, the textbooks for your class.

    When the course was first renovated it was $75 for 18 so I decided to wait a few years for the hype to cool down and got a great deal (it's winter and classes started recently so the students aren't playing much). I paid $30 for the twilight rate (2pm). A fantastic deal.

    It's $14 to walk, and I'm a walker at heart. It's been a few years so I rode yesterday, but I'll start walking soon.

    This has nothing to do with anything, but I played the campus course at Texas A&M for the first time since it's renovation. Very good design with a few corny things here and there but they had a major annoyance that many of the nicer courses commit. They do not include a course map on your card, you have to buy the $10+ range book for that.

    Does that drive anyone else insane? I hate it with everything in me.

    I saw American Sniper yesterday. Fantastic movie but very difficult to get through, like Saving Private Ryan.

    There were some disappointing flaws though: the baby he holds when he and his wife are next to the crib is very obviously a stiff doll, and the end dragged a bit, but I'm splitting hairs.

    If what Cablevision says is true, that's an awfully Comcast-esque thing for Verizon to do...

    "Go after terrorist leaders and infrastructure hard. Go after finances and financing even harder. Continue to use air power where applicable and effective."

    The issue there is the same we had in Vietnam. To truly cut the enemy's supply lines we had to expand the war into Laos and Cambodia.

    Today the wars would probably expand into Syria, Jordan, Yemen, Iran, and Pakistan to cut finance, training and supplies.

  • McDonald's CEO Thompson to retire; Easterbrook named [View news story]
    " A good person gives back money he didn't earn!!!"

    When in the history of mankind did anyone ever do that? I had a job selling flowers and jewelry, turned out I sucked hard at it and I quit after a few weeks. I did not give back one dime of my wages.

    Am I a bad person?

    What does this mean direction wide? Are they going to focus on marketing happy meals harder? That's what I remember as a kid, the mcnugget was what I thought a restaurant nugget looked like because of the intense marketing on the kids channels.

    Also are they going to start shrinking the size of the menu? It's getting pretty ridiculous.
