I'm not sure about you, but I don't think either of my parents has seen me with an erect penis before. But I guess they do things differently in the south... (Kidding. I see your point but there's a big difference between seeing a flaccid penis of a friend or relative and the full measurement when erect. Also, the Read more

Completely agree! I think the comparison here comes out of timing more than anything, but you have to admit that the R&D is somewhat similar and that Amazon, with their already and nearly exhaustive database of THINGS!, debuted the technology first not because of superior research, but perhaps because of a head start Read more

So I tried using clarifai to see if it could recognize the politician in this photo. While Senator Rubio may be quite a few things, I'm not sure "wizard", "magician", or "rabbi" are among them.

Personally, I'd be sold on any device voiced by Samuel L. Jackson. But that's just me.

I guess we learned that you can never trust press releases.

It does, actually! Your GPS coordinates are sent along with the SMS.

Trust me, I in no way intended this as a good thing but wanted to remain as neutral as possible as to not pontificate taste to the drinkers of Yellowtail (you know who you are). They were awful.

That would be an incredible invention. You might try ageing your vinegar though? haha

Good point, although I guess I just see it as a blanket policy of either enforcing rules or not enforcing them because if refs and/or FIFA are to decide which rules are more important to follow, then why bother having the other, "less important" rules at all?

David, great point, and I mean this article to be directed more toward the reactionary measures taken to solve problems, not the measures themselves (i.e. goal line tech or 9.15 Fair Play—I get .25 cents every time I say 9.15 Fair Play, btw, so get ready to see it a lot in this response, j/k).

Thanks for the comment, Shane. I think the point I am trying to make here is that this is POSSIBLY an indication of how problem solving is too retroactive and counter-intuitive to the sport. For example, watch the throw ins from now on. Tell me how many illegal throw ins you see. I've seen quite a few already. Now, Read more

I think you're absolutely right, Roberto. However, I'm not certain if we're going about solving issues the right way. My point here is that tech is not always the answer. And I am actually not again Goal line technology or the spray. I just think we need to reassess how we are tackling these issues. Read more

This is more in line of what I am thinking about how to keep the game "as is." I think this comes down to how much tech disruption we want in the game. And I guess I'm more of a purist in that regard. Thanks for the comment, polaarbear.

I'd like to say that I am not anti-spray (this is the beginning of a very awkward political ad) and it depends on what the meaning of "is" is. Anyway, if you interpreted it as such, I am sorry for the ambiguity. My point is that I believe this is a step in the wrong direction. I also don't disagree with goal-line Read more

I very much agree with this sentiment. I think more of what has changed is the viewership of soccer and, therefore, diving, et al. is replicated because spectators SEE that there is no consequence for many of these infractions.
