  1. It’s only one aspect of excessive speed which kills. Excessive speed too fast for the conditions, type of surface, visibility due to terrain, radius of curves, proximity to pedestrians, and many more, are all factors that can contribute to speed related accidents. And no, I don’t want my car limited in that manner either... You could reduce ALL alcohol related driving deaths by banning cars too. But that wouldn’t be a reasonable solution either...
  2. Along similar lines. A simple governor will limit top speed too. Since we know that excess speed kills, why not limit all cars to the speed limit? Hell, with gps, it could easily be road/street specific. Even school zones could be programmed in. I see little difference between the two, except the speed limitation would likely be more reliable...
  3. If the primary reason that you’re not reaching greens in regulation is because of the distance that you’re able to hit the ball, it’s time to move up a set of tees.
  4. More steps along the road towards ending personal responsibility... ”But the car told me I was sober, so it’s not my fault!”
  5. But you still can’t drive a nail very effectively with a screwdriver. If the clubs aren’t at least marginally suited to you, you’re not likely to progress and may get frustrated quickly and never really give the game a chance. Does someone “need” $3500 worth of clubs to learn/enjoy the game? Of course not. But a decent, relatively “full set”, even if used, that are appropriate in terms of physical fit and shaft will go a long way in starting out.
  6. Ah yes, the old “when we don’t win, it’s just because we didn’t really want to” argument. Of course, it only applies to the SEC. No other teams face the same thing. I’d offer that genuinely better teams should have more depth to them and pulling a senior or 3 from both teams shouldn’t affect the overall outcome much...
  7. There is nothing wrong with saying “Yep, you beat me by a stroke, but at least I didn’t roll my ball in the fairway”! “I hope you feel good about that win…“
  8. Which is why I said 3:45, instead of 2:45...
  9. I don’t care if you’re faster than me or not, but there is a level of what is “acceptable”. Anything over 3:45, unless someone is holding you up, is unacceptable. If slow players are not held accountable, they will never change…
  10. Yep. Lagavulin is another. The Isle of Islay scotches are unique. A lot of people don’t like the peat and astringent iodine. Good stuff, but not a beginners whisky!
  11. A man who will share his whisky is a rare and wondrous friend!
  12. Haven’t tried it. Honestly, I find most blends to be a bit boring. Even some of the better ones. I’ll keep an eye out for it though and give it a try if I run into the opportunity.
  13. Congratulations. You’re among the 70% who get it wrong.
  14. Honestly, if a few bucks one way or another mattered, I wouldn’t be drinking my Macallan, or any other quality single malt in the first place...
  15. Your course handicap is based upon your current handicap index and the slope of the course you are playing at the time. It may change from one course to another...
  16. Equally important, how will they ever get the sheer joy that comes from hitting it well?!
  17. Alright, this is a test... What are those? FWIW, 70% will get this wrong...
  18. Good grief, it’s way too early for this freaking thread!
  19. That’s EXACTLY right! The same reason why I refused to move the ball out of a divot in the fairway. Move the ball, hit a great shot, and who the hell cares? Hit the same great shot out of the divot, and you feel good for a month!
  20. I don’t know what this is, but it doesn’t come close to matching the AP poll that just came out and makes more sense... Really surprised Florida only dropped two places. They gave LSU enough respect for beating Florida by 14 that they jumped over Clemson, but then I would’ve thought that Florida would’ve dropped further than just two…
