Michigan beats Ohio State, and it is a victory for America 

In the real world, this trouncing of Ohio State is a lot more important than any football game in November. Especially if you are an American soldier or an innocent Afghani.

Seems like a fine invention. But, doesn't it contain too much information? "...portable, palm-sized metal detectors that could be hidden in trash cans, under tables or in flower pots..." reads like something the New York Times would print.

That's pretty cool. Maybe we ought to do all of our military R&D this way.

Spoken from ignorance! Having spent three years at Michigan and five at OSU, I can tell you that the latter is one of America's great cultural treasures, while the former is a complete dump. Michigan has the superior academic reputation, as evinced by its status as a hotbed of socialism and the huge chips balanced on the shoulders of its alumni. OSU, in contrast, is full of nice kids, swarming with ROTC cadets and beautiful girls, all of whom are comfortable in their own skin. I would not trade a blade of OSU's grass for all of Ann Arbor's icy hell. Michigan peaked with Gerald Ford, and its all been down-hill from there.

...speaking of Ohio State, after Woody Hayes stopped coaching as OSU he opened up a chain of laundromats in the Columbus area.......

He named them "4 loads and a cloud of suds......."

I read that, and felt proud to be an American. Then I read Dawnfire's comment, and felt proud to be an academic.
