I'm trying to remember what armpit of the earth Soxx is from but freedom is ringing in my ears too loudly

Lol "freedom". Good one. I have more freedom living as an ex-pat in the middle east than the average american will ever experience.

I don't know where you live good sir but we are obviously not in the same area of the Middle East and I am supposed to be residing in the most 'liberal' of them all. :P

Chip's offense isn't predicated on the option at all though. At its core, it's really just a sped up west coast offense, where you do quick, 1-read plays and up the middle runs, with the hope that you either break off a big play and/or wear out the defense. Except he sacrifices clock management to tire out defenses more quickly. Bradford is perfect for that kind of offense, as is Murray, because they're able to react quickly and effectively, and they have experience running it (albeit more slowly) at OU. Running the option adds nothing to the offense, except maybe an 8 yard play once or twice a game. You're not going to get huge plays very often in the NFL.

I have a former classmate who lives in UAE. It is pretty liberal for (white) men, but conservative for women.

 

Noxx lives in Qatar, methinks.

 

Meanwhile, I live in a former Soviet country that has consecutively ranked higher than US in all sorts of freedom indexes (freedom of internet, press, equality in law enforcement, whatnot).

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

But living in the desert tho

No tax, highest GDP per capita, safe. The list goes on. I have no qualification, no experience, i'm 24, and i earn more in 6 months than most Americans do in a year. I haven't had the need to lock my door or my car once in the 8 years living here. [bleep], i wouldn't care if it was a sewer then.

 

EDIT: wait, scratch that. Qatar pretty much is a sewer  :XD: "Let's throw money at them, maybe they'll forget they're just our slaves".

 

Freedom doesn't exist in the middle east, not even for the citizens. We're all sheep being led by a brainless Shepard.

Unfortunately, many people who live here take the U.A.E. for face value only. Focusing on its pretty skyline & GDP per capita. No one takes into account the thousands of laborers that are trapped in the country as their passports have been 'confiscated' and their only option is to keep working there, even that sex before marriage is a punishable offence. Quality of life, I agree. Liberal? I am skeptical. I am not a criticizer of the nation I am living in, I just evaluate nations based on the same means and I take it as an insult that this kind country of called 'liberal' not deserving that title. :S

Hell of a lot more deserving of the "liberal" title than Qatar, at the very least.

The option is another wrinkle that defenses have to prepare for and the threat of a running QB (especially with a two man backfield) opens up the middle of the field for quick slants. The two complement each other.

Regardless, the eggles haven't won the big one in years. Nothing to see here.

To an extent, sure. But read options aren't particularly hard to defend against, so you're just risking hits on your quarterback for a couple yards per play on average. Not to mention that it takes a lot of practice to run effectively. It's a tradeoff I can understand making, but I wouldn't recommend it.

So my Coachella group ended up hanging out with a porn star at Coachella who came with a friend of a friend. We didn't actually find out until the end of the second night, but it was pretty hilarious, and my brother especially was pretty stoked to learn he smoked a bowl with a porn star.

2nd patent granted last week. Super excited :)

What is the patent for? Or is that a patented secret?

 

 

Cause, you know. The thing is patented. I'll leave.

 

 

 

What's gonna be your third patent?

 

1st patent was a new thing to display in TV guides, granted in U.S. last year.

2nd patent was a twitter application on TV, and the way it pulls in tweets associated with programming, granted in U.S. last week.

3rd patent likely to be another aspect of twitter application, which granted in Japan this morning?

 

Still have about 10 or 11 applications pending, all from work that I did and ideas I had from 2009-2012. The company that I worked for will take a disclosure (my idea), and try and break it into 1 or more patent applications. Then it'll file each application in each of 4 major governing bodies (U.S., Europe, Japan and China). So now I have 2 U.S. patents and 1 Japanese patent, on 2 different ideas but 3 different applications.

I could link you to the granted patents, but the language is all legalese and very dry and boring. I gave you the executive summary because that's all I care to explain.

I'm not going to make any money other than a relatively small award because I don't own the patent.
