re: Deadly climbing season in the Himalayas - Globetrotter747
[quote]That's awful though. One day I want to trek to Everest just to see it. Seems like you can even fathom how big that sumbitch is unless you're standing beneath it.[/quote] I've seen Everest from a plane. I would love to hike to Base Camp one day. [img]http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1422...

re: A stepdad with your child - Globetrotter747
[quote]This situation sounds trashy[/quote] There's actually a lot more to it. Man #1 (who I referred to in my original post) has three kids and is divorced from Woman #1. Woman #1 is with Man #2 (who I don't think has a kid) and it's getting serious. Man #1 is now dating Woman #2, who ...

A stepdad with your child - Globetrotter747
Does it (or would it) bother you to see a stepdad (or perhaps your ex's new BF) being active and affectionate with your child in the ways a typical father would be? If you saw pictures on social media of your young son hoisted on the shoulders of another man or on a fishing trip, etc., how would you...

[quote]I don’t know what made that dude snap, but he’s gone off the deep end. I can see him ending up living secluded in an old shack in the Canadian Rockies looking like Ted Kaczynski.[/quote] Have you been to the Canadian Rockies? The mountains are beyond beautiful. I could so spend a summer in...

Best Candidate vs. Trump - Globetrotter747
Let me first say that I’m not a skyscreaming liberal who is anti-Trump, even though I don’t particularly like him as a person regardless of his politics. I’m just curious who people think would have the best chance to beat him in ‘20 even if it’s someone who is not likely to run. I don’t think Biden...

re: Clemson LB Shaq Smith (expected starter) has entered the Portal - Globetrotter747
[quote]My apologies for starting a different Clemson thread, but the other threads got so tainted by GlobeTiger and others that I didn't want to continue the stink.[/quote] Lord. :rolleyes: It would be interesting to see why this guy is leaving Clemson. Doesn't make a lot of sense on the s...

Defining Moments In Presidential Campaigns - Globetrotter747
What are some moments you can think of that defined past presidential campaigns for better or worse? The moments that may not have necessarily won or lost the election but were among the high and low points. A couple off the top of my head: Dukakis in the tank in '88 and Clinton addressing the la...

re: Can Bama Hold Off Clemson? - Globetrotter747
[quote]New success is the only success that counts.[/quote] Success that's relevant to what's going on today is what I count. Alabama's pretty much been on a plateau since '09. Clemson's steadily improved as Dabo has learned and gained credibility. There's every reason to think Clemson can (n...

[quote]Dabo Swinney has been a head football coach in power 5 football for more than a decade, and you are acting like he's a baby who just got started a couple of months ago.[/quote] If Nick Saban had arrived at Alabama in '07 with the same resume he had when he was at Toledo, do you think he wo...

re: Can Bama Hold Off Clemson? - Globetrotter747
[quote]As you know, Dabo is a pretty big homer for Alabama (which doesn't necessarily mean he would come back if he got the call). He has spoken fondly and passionately of his time at Alabama that it's easy to see that in him.[/quote] Of course. [quote]You are a free man and have every right t...

[quote]Ah so you’re one of those who likes the coach more than the program he went to?[/quote] Even if that were true, what’s wrong with valuing your relationships with people more than uniforms and buildings? If your son went to Auburn and played QB, would you pull for 11 guys you don’t know...

[quote]Also OP is a Clemson fan. He has a thread on the off-topic board in which he’s arguing Clemson is the best CFB team of all time.[/quote] I was a walk-on WR at Alabama in the late '90s when Dabo was the WR coach, so I have a deeper interest in this budding rivalry than most people because o...

Can Bama Hold Off Clemson? - Globetrotter747
What does the Tide need to do to keep Clemson from stealing the throne as the top program in CFB? Any changes or just doing the same things better? Clemson is arguably already there (not quite but very close, IMO) but another title next year and it’s pretty much solidified....
