Out of the Blue

I was very dubious about Xfinity as a provider after moving, but things have gone pretty well so far (knock wood). In fact, I got a present from them this morning, as I was informed that my download speed was bumped by 50% to 300 Mbps and my upload speed is doubled to 10 Mbps in a free upgrade. Ever the nerd, I am quite pleased about this, even though I know the difference will rarely be evident. But I think those of use who lived through accessing the internet using dial-up and modems will always be extra obsessed with high-speed access. I don't think someone who grew up with broadband can ever appreciate that. Sort of the way my grandparents were obsessed with stocking canned food after living through the depression. But you know, just a trifle less dramatic.

What's the over/under on the Superbowl?

Not the outcome, but the chance of terrorism?

So ya got 50'ish thousand fans having to leave the stadium (OF THE SUPER BOWL GAME) because of terrorists..... do the terrorists understand what sorta hell they are going to unleash on themselves?

They don't care. Ideologically driven terrorists only care about one thing and that is their goal. If they are killed after, or during, accomplishing their goal, they become revered martyrs to their fellow terrorists. Anti-government, white supremacists still laud Timothy McVeigh to this day and Islamic terrorists still laud the men who took down the World Trade Center towers. It's goal driven hyperfixation akin to religious mania.


Well most terroristic threats the could pose a problem will be idiot groups like Proud Boys or the Trucking community, or some other idiot group from inside the US (was my point)., and if ya know the die hard fans that will be at the Super Bowl, and surrounding areas, it would be rather foolish to attempt anything at the Super Bowl
Where were the "die hard fans" when we needed them.
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Las Vegas Strip, Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, El Paso Walmart, Orlando nightclub, US Capitol, Sandy Hook Elementary, Virginia Tech, Texas First Baptist Church ..
