In fluid dynamics, a breaking wave is a wave whose amplitude reaches a critical level at which some process can suddenly start to occur that causes large amounts of wave energy to be transformed into turbulent kinetic energy. At this point, simple physical models that describe wave dynamics often become invalid, particularly those that assume linear behavior. The most generally familiar sort of breaking wave is the breaking of water surface waves on a coastline. When waves travel into areas of shallow water, they begin to be affected by the ocean bottom. The free orbital motion of the water is disrupted, and water particles in orbital motion no longer return to their original position. As the water becomes shallower, the swell becomes higher and steeper, ultimately assuming the familiar sharp-crested wave shape. After the wave breaks, it becomes a wave of translation and erosion of the ocean bottom intensifies.
I've got an idea. I'm going to head up to the Executive Inn in Belleville, Illinois where I'm going to have some guy smash my penis causing me to leap into the air with everyone else. But as dumb as all that would be, it still couldn't hold a candle to the one of the absolute worst calls ever made in sports.
Mommie Dearest is a 1981 American biographical drama film about Joan Crawford, starring Faye Dunaway. In the most infamous scene of the film, Joan, with her face slathered in cold cream, stalks into Christina's bedroom in the middle of the night and discovers one of the child's dresses hanging on a wire hanger. She launches into a tirade, screaming at the girl, "I told you! No wire hangers, ever!" She yanks dresses from Christina's closet, throws them all over the girl's room and brutally beats the screaming girl with the wire hanger. Joan, furious that the child does not understand her notion of cleanliness, wrecks the bathroom as well, throwing cleaning powder all over the already spotless bathroom, striking Christina with the tin and screaming at her to clean it up.
In 1969, Neil Armstrong beat every Lunar Lander player and everyone else who has ever held the controls to anything ever. Apollo 11 was on its way to becoming history when the lunar module computer started flashing up "executive overflow" errors, saying that it had too much to do and would get back to some of these calculations later. Since these were the "NOT crashing into the moon" calculations, it was a bit of a concern. That's when Armstrong noticed the programmed landing site had looked fine under telescope observation, but was full of lander-destroying boulders. With a few hundred thousand miles on the clock and less than a minute of fuel remaining, Neil was damned if he was turning the car around and going home. So as well as being the first person on the moon, he got to be the first person to save space by pulling manual override and steering the ship himself. With a life expectancy measured in seconds, he and Buzz calmly surveyed the surface of the moon and found the most important parking space in history.
Ernie, Not that I think anything of Wells Fargo. Personally I think they are this one of the biggest pieces of shit on this earth. But the story about the guy losing his job and 3 days later the hospital canceling the surgery is a bunch of bull shit in all caps. No hospital would do that. Second most companies continue insurance until the beginning of the following month, it is almost impossible to cancel medical insurance that quickly. Additionally plan participants and beneficiaries generally must be sent an election notice not later than 14 days after the plan administrator receives notice that a qualifying event has occurred. The individual then has 60 days to decide whether to elect COBRA continuation coverage. The person has 45 days after electing coverage to pay the initial premium. Until that notice goes out the company is legally responsible for all costs outside of what the plan participants and beneficiaries generally would have to pay. So if you count the days it would be 120 days until you could be denied for non payment of the premium. The employer must keep detailed records of COBRA notifications, including the dates sent, and detailed records of COBRA rejections or acceptance. Failure to comply with the law subjects the employer to excise taxes, in addition to damages under ERISA, as well as possible attorney's fees and the liability for any of the beneficiary's medical expenses that were due to the gap in coverage. This is all well established case law in all 50 states. No company wants to run afoul of COBRA and ERISA. And even so all the father would have had to do was send a simple certified letter requesting a COBRA notice and stating he intended to continue coverage and the bank would have been royally fucked. Having been in a similar situation myself back on 2003 and having a wife that was the HR manager for Blue Cross Blue Shield, I can tell you with 100% confidence that this is fucked up bull shit. Troy
Well, I understand the way things are supposed to go. But that doesn't mean things went down that way for this poor bastard. I would have to imagine that with his daughter's life on the line, he probably already thought of sending a certified letter asking for COBRA coverage. I mean it's not like Banks ever do anything unscrupulous or flat out against the law right down here in Florida, right? So as for this story being bullshit?

The Tampa Bay Rays are a Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise based in St. Petersburg, Florida. They are currently a member of the American League East division. Since their inception, their home venue has been Tropicana Field. Following nearly three decades of unsuccessfully trying to gain an expansion franchise or enticing existing teams to relocate to the Tampa Bay area, an ownership group led by Vince Naimoli was approved in in 1995. The Tampa Bay Devil Rays began play in the 1998 Major League Baseball season. Although widespread support has been slow to build with the lack of success in its first ten seasons, it has taken some cues from the powerhouses of the American League East. Whereas Red Sox fans are referred to as Red Sox Nation, and Yankee fans are referred to as Yankees Universe, the Rays have adopted the term Rays Republic for their fan base. The team has also had its fair share of notable fans and outrageous fan traditions over the years.

White trash is an American English pejorative term referring to poor white people in the United States, especially in the rural South, suggesting lower social class and degraded living standards. The term suggests outcasts from respectable society living on the fringes of the social order who are seen as dangerous because they may be criminal, unpredictable, and without respect for authority whether it be political, legal, or moral. The term white trash first came into common use in the 1830s as a pejorative used by house slaves against poor whites. In 1833 Fanny Kemble, an English actress visiting Georgia, noted in her journal: "The slaves themselves entertain the very highest contempt for white servants, whom they designate as 'poor white trash'".
I guess this is how scientists fight? World reknowned English ethologist, evolutionary biologist and author Richard Dawkins responds brilliantly to criticism from everyone's favorite astrophysicist, Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
And no, I don't think he misspoke himself at all.
