  1. Listen, fall back, take several seats because I can take you to school on this issue, so don't push your luck. Taking what I said as an insult to "your" country shows a certain level of ignorance on issues of human right. If you wanna count the numbers of country truly worthy of sitting on that proverbial high horse, the U.S doesn't crack the top 4. Like I said earlier, let's keep this thread on topic. P.S. It's not just your country, so fall the heck back.

  3. "Why can I hit my irons ok but slice my driver off the planet?" OR "Why does my 3 wood go farther than my driver?" These are two common questions we see on The Sand Trap and I wanted to put this thread together to help those golfers that struggle with hitting a driver. It can be a tough club to hit, especially if you are a higher handicap player or a beginner. The club is long and it doesn't have much loft. As I say in the video, the swing is basically the same as any other full swing you make with a few set-up adjustments. If you struggle with hitting a driver there is a very good

  4. I've been taking some time off and will provide the same detailed follow up on another site, since that is where my swing speed increase project first started. After starting my program I was having a few issues with my lower back and left side glute muscles. I started with PT with the belief it was a problem with my piriformis (deep glute) muscle group, after 30 days it wasn't getting much better and went back to Primary Care Physician and wanted to find out what was "the problem". PCP requisitioned an X-ray with an appointment with the Physiatrist (rehabilitation physicians, are ner

  7. Well, [i]The Onion[/i] has a great piece on this, as expected. [URL=http://www.theonion.com/article/tiger-woods-lindsey-vonn-blame-breakup-hectic-sex--50359]http://www.theonion.com/article/tiger-woods-lindsey-vonn-blame-breakup-hectic-sex--50359[/URL] (n.b., adult language)

  8. With only 5 - 6 rounds, your temporary HI is based on only one round, the best round. That last round looks to be the best. Base on your corrected rating and slope of 68.0 and 120 the calculation: 82 - 68 = 14 14 * 113/120 = 13.18 13.18 * .96 = 12.6 Your temporary HI based on those 6 rounds is 12.6

  9. To me, there are only two categories. Bad irons - 3, 4 which I don't carry in favor of hybrids. Good irons - the rest.

  10. True, not everyone is affected the same way by substances. Some people are a mess when they're drunk, I just get awesomer.

  11. When it comes to substances, everyone is unique. Certainly most people don't benefit from drinking alcohol, but some people are alcoholics who need to drink in order to feel normal. For that person, drinking probably would improve their game (at least in the short term). Nobody would say that smoking cigarettes leads to better golf in general, but I know for a fact that it helps me settle down after a bad hole. Then again, I'm a non-golfer per this thread at least 10 times over.

  13. I'm not going to label a player a jerk based on autographs. I go to a ton of tournaments and watch the whole autograph frenzy. There are grown men running around with flags, magazines, hats to be signed - kind of pathetic really. Guess some are doing it for Ebay sales. Maybe not. Yesterday I watched Tiger sign probably 50+ autographs, maybe more, then while he was walking away some guy threw out the "for a veteran" plea - I'm sure Tiger heard it but kept walking. I thought throwing out the "I'm a vet" to get an autograph was shallow on the fan's part - as a vet myself, hated to hear it

  16. Disclaimer: Not a big boxing fan or expert. The problem with boxing as I've always seen it is that it's judge based when somebody doesn't get knocked out. It falls into the category of Figure Skating and Gymnastics when guys just get to subjectively decide who they thought looked better. Certainly there are many objective aspects to the scoring, but it's still not perfect as seen this weekend by the fact that the judges on the panel and the guys who work for ESPN or other various experts don't agree. Some have even suggested that part of the reason (maybe all of the reason) why Pacq

  17. On a somewhat related note, cutting down a set of full sized men's clubs for a 4 year old is going to leave her with heavy, completely unwieldy clubs. I understand the cost factor, but would encourage you to look for a set of purpose designed kids clubs in her size. They're generally easy to find used since the kids grow out of them so fast too.....

  18. My wife and I lived together for 10 years and had two kids prior to getting married. We're 5 years into marriage now. We're both Satanists though, so that may skew things a little.

  20. From actual studies, here are some of the top reasons for a divorce. From Austin-Institute for the Study of Family and Culture Reasons for women to divorce, Emotional Abuse, Spouse unresponsive to needs, Spouse Immaturity, Infidelity, alcohol or drug problems, tired of making the marriage work Reasons for men to divorce, Tired of making the marriage work, Infidelity, Spouse unresponsive to needs, spouse immaturity, married too young, Different financial priorities/spending patterns. Published doesn't mean correct. Anyone can take a poll and publish it.

  21. Well, in the layman's view, that is a pre-judged diagnosis that overstates the importance of traditional religious views. Your "interpretation" gives it away, as it contains the conclusion that no people who have a child outside of marriage have made a "mutual decision" to procreate. You could just as easily state that those who are good communicators, understand their spouse's love language, and are clean/tidy people tend to have longer and more successful marriages (and none of those factors presuppose that you must have traditional views on religion/marriage to have a successful marriage)

  22. I have a hard time believing that premarital cohabitation is detrimental to a marriage's longevity. That sounds like church sponsored claptrap to me.

  23. Well, it simply doesn't make sense. Getting married too young (i.e. the person changes and grows in a different direction from their spouse) is valid. Financial stress is valid. The next three on your list don't seem like "core" reasons why two people who have decided to get married would later get divorced. "My wife drinks too much, goes out all the time, and hooks up with other guys. I should have known this would happen when we decided to live together before marriage..." I'm guessing the "published" reasons are the result of a study (or publication) sponsored by some religious

  24. A high divorce rate is a good thing. It's a sign that we've advanced as a culture and shed the stigma of divorce. The alternative is to turn back the clock fifty years, where people stayed miserable and married due to societal pressure. Oftentimes to abusive partners. And their children suffered far more growing up in a loveless environment than they would have with separate households. I'd say half the couples I know are happily married. Roughly 25% aren't, but are still hoping to salvage the relationship. Best wishes to them. Another 25% should get divorced yesterday. So in my
