    Plenty of men have spent a decade or more in prison for crimes they never committed due to this type of crap. Sometimes they are proven innocent by DNA evidence, but sometimes because the witness admitted they gave false testimony...in once case it was because she admitted she "was mad" at the guy in jail and claimed he raped her.  Could you imagine?  Dude sits in jail for 15 years and only gets out because a new defense attorney starts taking a deeper look and noticing the inconsistencies of the statements the accuser made, but only once she is questioned again does she admit they were lies...she would have happily let that man sit in jail the rest of his life and just pretended it didn't happen! Probably never even apologized to him for it.  Of course she doesn't go to jail because the statute of limitations had ran out. And even if she did, what is she going to get? 3 months?

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

  2. Went to move the wife's car into garage, this was on the stick...A very underrated 10,000 Maniacs song:

    From '87, Michael Stipe on backing vocals.

     

    35 years later the lyrics resonate even more... Even more profound considering the way things are going with people, power, natural resources, and the land...

     

    "A lie to say, "O my mountain has coal veins and beds to dig.
    500 men with axes and they all dig for me."
    A lie to say, "O my river where many fish do swim,
    half of the catch is mine when you haul your nets in."
    Oh, no, never will he believe that his greed is a blinding ray.
    No devil or redeemer will cheat him.
    He'll take his gold to where he's lying cold.

    A lie to say, "O my mine gave a diamond as big as a fist."
    But with every gem in his pocket, the jewels he has missed.
    A lie to say, "O my garden is growing taller by the day."
    He only eats the best and tosses the rest away.
    Oh, no, never will he be believe that his greed is a blinding ray.
    No devil or redeemer can cheat him.
    He'll take his gold to where he's lying cold.
    Six deep in the grave.

    Something is out of reach
    Something he wanted
    Something is out of reach
    He's being taunted
    Something is out of reach
    That he can't bag or steal. Nor can he buy.

    His oldest pain and fear in life
    There'll not be time
    His oldest pain and fear in life
    There'll not be time
    Oh no, hey, hey

    A lie to say "O my forest has trees that block the sun
    and when I cut them down I don't answer to anyone."
    No, no, never will he believe that his greed is a blinding ray
    No devil or redeemer can cheat him.
    He'll take his gold where he's lying cold.

    La la la la la la
    La la la, la la la
    Oh, la la la, la la la la
    La la la la la la la
    Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely man"

    Or, hear me out, there wasn't enough evidence to press charges.

     

    Because it was botched from the get go. Too much at stake in a University part of town... Police told the university to stand down... Well that's what was said at first. System protects these guys.

    But only use the stuff detected only by a black light... Then carry it around with you and wave said light at him...

    I'll quote myself in order to respond to you ...

     

    Just another Yankees fan hanging on to what USED TO be.  It's a little sad, really.

     

    You've been added to the list.

    No.  At least they have something.  It just kills you that A.Judge values the pinstripes more than anything else...

    This nails it!

     

    "...In a world — or is it a bubble or an echo chamber? — where the allure of wearing the pinstripes in Yankees Stadium was built up to the point where it was seen as more important than money, the idea of Judge actually leaving was just silly, a thing that couldn’t actually happen. Stars don’t leave the Yankees if the Yankees want the stars to stay.

    And in the end, of course, Judge stayed. The Yankees Mystique survived, but only barely.  ..."

    Where do I start?

     

    • Yankees haven't been to the World Series since 2009; Mets were there in 2015.
    • The Yankees just gave a 30-year-old strikeout machine a 9-year/$360 mil., contract.  Enjoy those Ks in the postseason for years to come.
    • Oh ... can Judge pitch?
    • The Rangers just gave deGrom (who I love; don't get me wrong) a 5-year deal, even though he's coming off of consecutive injury-shortened seasons.
    • The Mets replaced deGrom with the reigning Cy Young Award winner and World Series winning pitcher ... and they signed him for two years (not 5).

    Nah ... it's actually pretty funny!

     

    Number one bullet point is bizarre. They won it in 2009. The Yankees have won it in 1996, 1998, 1998, 2000, 2009... That's 5 times since the Mets last win in 1985.

     

    Hate all you want...  There will always be a Yankee mystique as being the most storied franchise in MLB history. Even if they throw a few clunker decades around.  

     

    Just beyond me that we're setting the bar at just showing up in the last 10 years... The Yankees in last 20 years have 13 Division Titles...

     

    The Mets? In last 35 years... 2 Division titles.

    ^This - you can always put a sweatshirt on when it's cold.

    When it's hot and muggy, there's nothing you can do but hop from air conditioned space to air conditioned space.

    Agree... Figure Miami was really only settled since early 1900s...

     

    The populations in the SunBelt wouldn't exist without mechanical air conditioning. 

     

    It's a climate danger zone too... Always has been, too many people live there because humans have engineered around the challenges.

    I was reading their board after the game got flexed. Nothing but calling this unfair and its gonna be cold and that's a huge advantage for Buffalo. Like geez cry much?

    Yet... They brag about the heat stroke advantage they have on the SideLines @ HardRock... It's a big home field advantage there... The home team in Miami isn't subjected to heat stroke...

     

    At least in snow and cold,  things are equal. 

     

    They need to build a sunshade on visitor's sideline in Miami to equal things out. The last game the Bills staff was running around with portable shades to cover the players so they won't keel over. On Miami sideline, they had no such problem because they were in shade.  They new semi-roof was created to give an unfair competitive advantage to home team and help fans.
