  1. I think her mom was mad that she wet the bed, and hit her in a fit of rage and either killed her, or almost killed her. Then the parents strangled her to end the pain from the head injury.
  2. I really liked the movie about the Zodiac that came out with Iron Man and The Hulk...I mean Robert Downey Jr and Mark Ruffalo. Then I looked into the suspect they talked about in the movie, and it definitely wasn't him. Still a good movie though. I had looked into the Zodiac quite a bit back in the day, and it is a lot like the DB Cooper case. So many different possibilities.
  3. It really is. Every single theory has positives and negatives, and that's one of the most fun things about it. Not being able to prove or disprove anybody or any theory is one of the things that keeps the excitement alive. I had kicked around the dead theory for a while, but I just love the adventure of him living through the jump.
  4. I'm not a big fan of Rackstraw as Cooper. One thing I don't like is that none of the Cooper money ever popped up again besides a few thousand found on a beach. None of it was ever found as being spent, none of it was ever recorded into the treasury when bills get retired. Why wasn't it ever spent? Rackstraw got busted a few years later for stealing an airplane and passing bad checks. I don't get how someone could have $200,000 that he never spent, but would write bad checks. I think it would be much less risky to try to spend some of the marked bills than a bad check. I can't imagine anybody was checking bills a few months after the Cooper hijacking. I also don't like that he was investigated by the FBI in the late 70s, but they determined he didn't fit as a suspect. I think Rackstraw was a bit of a shady character, and loved the notoriety that came with being a suspect. He would never confirm or deny that he was Cooper, but he seemed like he liked to play it up for publicity. Just my 2 cents on it. There are so many things for and against so many people in this case it is crazy.
  5. What kind of programming are you looking for? I never watch BTN except for live sports, so is it things for this coming year?
  6. Agreed. Obviously everyone here would trade Purdue's last 2 seasons for IU's last 2 seasons. Bowl game vs no bowl game. No comparison. Even if we won't admit it, we're probably all a little jealous of the way the last 2 years have played out. I am just over hearing about it. I'd rather come here and read about religion and politics than read about how great Purdue is.
  7. It has nothing to do with him being right or wrong. I don't disagree with a lot of what he posts. It's the when that I have a problem with.
  8. Would giving Boiler the middle finger emoji get someone banned? Asking for a friend.
  9. I feel ya Bob! I really think IU is being built on a solid foundation. It definitely wasn't a start over, but the foundation was rebuilt. I think this is set up for sustained success, and not just a couple years. I wouldn't worry too much about Purdue fans. They're not worth the energy to deal with.
  10. At least there are some places out there that are optimistic. I don't know if I'm optimistic enough for 9 wins, but I think it is a good sign that there is at least talk about it. Until we actually do turn the corner though, every positive is going to be shot down with negatives. I'm really hopeful that before long, there will be articles about winning 9 games back up by other people saying the same thing. I think it could be close!
  11. Fryfogle has looked good too. Probably just a tier below the other 3, but he will get a lot of time and could step in if one of the other 3 gets hurt.
  12. I see it much more as each year being a test within an entire semester. He hasn't done great on the first 2 tests, but that doesn't mean he can't do well for the semester.
  13. I got an email from Dr. Rhea saying he'd be willing to send me some redacted data. I won't be able to share any information here because it needs to stay only in my classes, but I'm pretty excited that he got back to me on it. I think my classes will really love breaking down some information about high level athletes. I thought that was pretty awesome of him to do something like that.
  14. Did anybody see the real life Scott Sterling? http://www.espn.com/video/clip?id=27182983
  15. Helped out by eating a lot last Sunday and ballooning my weight, down to 262.7 tonight. Body fat is at 34.4%. Had a pretty good week of eating healthy. Had a cold, so I couldn't work out, but hopefully this coming week.
