Just like it did, right?  At least to the extent possible.

Right. Like Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and CSA.

Coming from scrappy multi-racial mongrel stock with Scots-Irish/Borderlands culture, I would have conceded the land, backed down, then jumped him with a bat when he turned his back.

It's worth noting that the baseball bat is far superior to the cricket bat for beating another man senseless, which is yet another way that baseball is superior to cricket.



Admin we need to reinvigorate the humour board.

This guy's a comedy genius.


The Ashes are on now- how can you even mention baseball (or "rounders" as schoolgirls call it)?

This is a holy time.

Limey, cmon. That’s the worst analogy. One has publicity the other does not.




They both get in the news but I can tell you which affects the sales.

Quote:


Were u asleep during the B&p fiasco or Citgo Chavez boycott situation. Thousands of examples of consumers boycotting companies when they perceive the company is committing environmental or social harm



Yeah, and I wish that we're the norm.

Apart from one, of the many hundreds of serious injuries at work I investigated none affected the market position of the business concerned to any great extent.

They paid the fines and moved on, with such improvements to their safety management as I instructed them to make.

I'm sorry I wasn't born the 17th Earl of West Llachomoleynshire, but I don't have 33 hours to spend watching just 1 single game!  Anyway, Forbus Nigel Thaggonbottom-Fitzmontronse is at the bat, and here's hoping he swings the bat twice in the next half-hour.

It pains me that you can’t see cricket for what it is.


It’s beautiful.

I’ve often wondered if you took the best nfl players how they’d do in rugby and vice Versa. I played rugby in college and occasionally a scrub football player would play, and they’d crush the best rugby players.

That's a very different model from the one I am referring to. These are political-government acts. I am referring to private regulation.

I know.  And I am of the opinion that there are some things private associations won't do.  That's where government steps in.  But we both know where we both stand so I'll let it go rather than hijack the thread.
