Might go to the Atlanta History Center today.  Is it OK if we see the restoration of the Cyclorama?  
It's fine but you'll have to come back and explain what it is, for those of us who are unaware. :smiley_confused1:

I have an opinion question about logos (not political!).  I know Michigan's "official" logo is the big block yellow M, but I've been using a blue one with the yellow banner across it.  Which would be better, visually, for my game???

I saw the one with the banner more growing up, but one of (the only?) thing Dave Brandon did that UM fans like was to streamline to logo for brand purposes.  They only use the plain block M now of officially licensed gear I believe.  They also fixed the scoreboards on the stadium accordingly (see below).  If the university can control it, the banner is gone...

That would be ... very bad.
The great secret is that as we become more and more aware of what makes us unhappy, we end up in better and better times. These are literally the best times humanity had had. That’s not the highest bar, mind you, but those simpler times were, by and large worse for most everyone.
Yeah. Everything's amazing but everybody's angry all the time... Progress?

people aren't anymore intelligent today than they were centuries ago

and unfortunately, they are still motivated by the same old things

Yeah. Staying ahead of [rather than keeping up with] the Joneses. It's been well established that people often consider their well-being on a "relative" rather than "absolute" scale. 
But when there are 7 billion Joneses and the internet points out their exploits on a daily basis, you can't stay ahead of them all. 
So despite the fact that everything's getting better, everyone's less happy.

IIRC, you don't do Facebook, right Badge? 
I'm convinced that's part of the problem for most people...

Very little. 
All people do on there is talk about how great everything is in their life, even if it isn't...

do the box stores such as Best Buy usually discount large TVs at the start of football season?

I'm thinking about upgrading from my 50" plasma.

I know they do around thanksgiving for Xmas sales and then for the Super Bowl
