lol @ snowstalker in this thread

Laughing at the USA while supporting literally the worst team at the World Cup.

Great game by the USA, probably their best performance ever in a World Cup. Really dominated Portugal for much of the game. But Portugal is a team with quality, and they'll pounce when you make mistakes, like Cameron and Bradley did in this game. But Germany and USA will be bros and draw the last game and everything will work out.

A reprise of the 1982 Non-Aggression pact of Gijón?

yes, let's hope so

Sickening.

I had hoped to see Portugal play somewhat poorly, but not this poorly. The US will be in for a shock when they play Germany. I mean, it's not "serious" person considering it's just sport, but coverage of this here is horridly biased. A lot of people sincerely believe that since they beat Ghana, and Ghana was able to draw Germany, that means the US team is skilled enough to defeat Germany. The US had no business winning that first game- it's apparent when you look at the stats that Ghana dominated. A lot of people are overestimating the quality of the American team. And I'm not saying this just because I need Germany to give the US a drubbing.

I mean, would it be possible to allow for PMs to not count towards waiting time between posts? A SNAFU where I tried to send a PM earlier today and post on the forum left me unable to post for nearly half an hour.

Do you know how much the present lack of competition adds to defense costs? Due to requirements that stipulate we must source our weapons purchases from domestic producers, we're left with a handful of producers who place a reduced focus to cost-suppression or schedule-keeping. Centralising production would only make this worse, by reducing competition from little to none. If you want to weaken the military-industrial complex in this country, here's a suggestion- remove the protectionist barriers that give it its undue clout.

Of course, Portugal're just the kind of team to fight their way back into the tournament by trashing you, then lose it all again in the third match. -_-

Yes. Yes. God willing. Let us pray.

I wonder how this is weighted. Norway has just as many "11th" rankings and yet they place sixth.

Well I'm rooting Ghana... because I'm Ghanaian. And I'm rooting against the US because Ghana cannot advance if the US does well. So that's that.

All right, I suppose I'll have to cut down on the cardio.

I didn't say that.  I mean on when you go work out, either lift weights or do cardio, but not both.  Maybe you could do cardio at 7am and lift at 7pm, but you don't want to lift after a 4 mile run.  That's all.   

Right. Understood.

My diet is producing results on the scales, so that works for me. But in regards to the sugar you sound like my mother. I eat a lot of grapes, celery, and so forth. I doubt it's doing me harm. But I haven't been having a lot of straight-up water. That's something I should consider.

I mean I'm aiming for definition, but not a six-pack or anything. It's just way too unrealistic and probably would also necessitate me having to replace all my clothes. The idea is ludicrous. It is utterly inconceivable, to the point it'd probably get me off-target. Right now I'm hoping to get a bit of arm and leg definition and a flat stomach. And I'd like to be able to keep it. That's it.

I don't follow.  You're not accidentally going to put on a ton of muscle.  You're worried that if you have a muscular core you're going to be too trim for your pants?  If you put on some muscle, the only thing you have to worry about in terms of clothes is neck size on dress shirts.

I think it's just efficient from a time/benefit perspective to actually lift weights and not just dick around at the gym.  You can just lift a couple of times a week and do a few compound exercises like squats and bench press and chin-ups, 3 sets, 8-10 reps.

I'm not "dicking around at the gym". I'm doing weights for a good hour. I'm concerned about shoulders, mainly. But I really don't think trying to get a lot of muscle is a plausible idea nor is it what I want.

Excited to see the bro tears when USA finishes last in the group with two losses.

538 gives the US around a 2/3 chance of moving on.

I saw that. Not only is it silly, but if there's one thing we know we cannot predict results from soccer rankings or whatnot.

I think 2/3 is a reasonable probability, actually. Even one draw is probably enough to get the US through.

Ok. You believe that. Focus less on the scoreline and focus on the game stats, in terms of shots, possession, and so forth. In terms of that, Ghana dominated. Don't let this victory go to your head and think it was all about the US's skill. It was luck.

This is lack of party discipline at work. The party grandees know it would be good for the party for Shannon to win. Yet they aren't able to make this Lankford fellow see this and act in the good of the party.
