Either one would certainly be impressive but I have to believe that a Grand Slam is the more difficult to accomplish since no one has ever held all four titles in the same calendar year.     Bobby Jones did have four major titles in a single year but they were the US Open, The US Amateur, The British open, and the British Amateur.  Amazing but not sure it is considered a "grand slam".  
I shot 79 twice but it was a long time ago. About 1993 as I recall.
It was too long ago.
I guess the problem with the climate machine is that it is very very complex with a lot of variables and impossible to "perform an experiment".  Probably the first thing Science should come to grips with is how do you measure the average temperature of the earth?  If someone tells you the earth is warming how is that measured.  Sounds simple but not if you think about awhile. So I view the arguments about climate change just like the the ones on how the Universe came into...
Actually I believe Mexico is going to apply for statehood to become our 51st Star.  
  Boogielicious is correct we are way off topic.  My apologies to the OP.  This is my last comment on this thread.  All I am saying is that different people have different views of what the Confederate Battle flag stands for and can make reasoned arguments to support that view. I won't address the Japan thing as you can read for yourself how the US denied the flow of Oil into Japan prior to Pearl Harbor (beginning July of 1941 I believe) and part of that denial was use of...
Matter of fact many Japanese believe we started the war by having a naval blockade of their country.  The facts are we did blockade their country prior to being attacked to stop Japan's expansionists policies.  So who started the war between Japan and the USA is a matter of perspective.  Before I get called names I follow the tradition belief that we were attack and we responded.  But I have spend some time in Japan and have learned they have a different view of how and...
Glad you've done enough studying on the subject to make an informed decision on what the Civil War was all about both in the South and North.  I can see from your post you're a person who considers a question from all sides before making a "reasoned" decision.  I would concur you don't "put BS up front" to hide your character.
I hate to mention this because I know how emotions flare on this subject, but the CSA flag and the Confederate Battle flag to some people represent an effort by their ancestors to defend their homeland against a Northern invader who would not allow them to secede from a union they had voluntarily joined and no longer wanted to be a part of.  When you read your history books remember who wrote them, the winner did.  I think one should also remember before they get to...
Well I wasn't born in time for WWII but I am a veteran of another era conflict a long time ago.  I didn't ever really smoke until I was in the military and the Red Cross GAVE us cigarettes when we were overseas.  Yes I said it right, the Red Cross gave us cigarettes free when I was overseas.  Talk about how times have changed.  Anyway I quit smoking 25 years ago and probably the best thing I ever did for my health (one of the more difficult things I ever did too).  I read...
