    Reading the context of the allegation, I could see a stupid college football player (Peyton in this case) thinking what he did was funny at the time and then realized how bad it looks, so tried to...

    I'm still not buying the 'waves' part. If it's waves, then then are peaks and troughs. When a body exerts a certain gravitational pull and then that 'mass' changes, then I do see that there will be...

    That's where I am. I still foolishly follow a rigorous workout regimen, so I am constantly picking up niggling little injuries. I'll probably wise up when I'm my death-bed. Oh well -YOLO.

    Yellow journalism. Stress (even just being nervous for your team) lowers the immune system and allows common maladies to get a foothold in your system. Seniors are particularly susceptible to that.

    TAFNY!!
    You are correct, sir! Clearly I am out of my depth. Baiting people like you does not cast myself in a good light. It's a known weakness of mine.

    Ima hafta agree. . I had a nice pleasant steady decline from 40-64, nothing I couldn't handle. At 65 the wheels came off, and it has taken a while to get back to doing the kinds of things I did at...

    I love that one. I teach beginning 12-year-girls to do what he's doing: wide grip, strong resistance with bottom arm. I have success with it too, but most good coaches tell me I'm nuts teaching that....

    I don't have any studies to cite, but is it not intuitively obvious? The fuels used and oxygen consumed is much greater with auto-locomotion, than the lesser demands of a body buoyed by water or...

    My disconnect is that the 'indention' in space-time is one continuous gradient, yes? Not rippling 'up and down'. If it were waves, wouldn't the gravitational field get weaker and strong in the peaks...

    I'm missing something here.
    Gravity waves are like ocean waves - with peaks and troughs?
    I though that gravity was caused by an object displacing space-time and created a 'low' around it, which...

    I'll take the bird-in-hand. If he qualifies for the OG, he 'should' go. It's possible he could bomb out in the qualifying round, but even that experience would be worth it in the long run. He's a...

    We're looking for ideas that the IAAF would actually buy. They would never do that in a championship meet. Maybe in an invitational just for S&G.
