How does Bettman keep his job? Since you're so good at answering questions, why aren't YOU the commissioner?

Yeah! What the hell man! Why aren't you?

Betteman keeps his job by making the BOG money. he may be making this fine game a complete travesty, but revenues are consistently going up and up (as evidenced by the salary cap continuing to increase). until revenues start to decline he'll most likely keep his job, which is a shame, because this fine game will be a shell of it's former glorious self by the time that happens.

If I were offered the job I'd jump on it instantly, as I feel like I could continue to increase revenue while retaining the feel/integrity of the game (and I would have allowed Basillie to move the coyotes LONG ago, avoiding that whole fiasco.) You could bet your bottom dollar I wouldn't be booed at every Stanley cup presentation/draft/public appearance.

If you owned a commercial building with 3 tenants and would like to determine Market Value would you use the comparative method or Income approach of appraisal?

unless there is good evidence of an analogous previous sale in the same area, I'd go with the income approach, as it takes into account future earned income.

Can you imagine a world without the "Ask Avelance Anything?"?

I can, but it seems so dark and empty. It sends a cold shiver through my SOUL.

I added you as a CDC friend, does that make me a stalker?

kinda, but it depends on what you plan on doing with this new friend status.

Why can't atheists solve differential equations?

Because they don’t believe in higher powers

What's the hardest thing about having a child?

I'd imagine it would be the birthing part, but I guess i'll find out soon.

the hormones and mood swings are starting to drive me nuts though, I got yelled at because i opened a bag of chips before she did...

I don't use the mobile version of this site, so it doesn't affect me, but I can only see the addition of a last page button for the mobile version as a positive change.

not educated enough on the subject to make a decision one way or the other. there are pros and cons on both sides, not sure which one outweighs the other.

Tesla
Picard (though I LOVE Kirk too)
Pluto is no longer deemed a planet because it's too small, circles the sun in an off-axis orbit, and it's orbit crosses over Neptune's orbit. I disagree with their justification, as i think it's more them being too lazy to add the new ones than it is them thinking Pluto isn't really a planet.
they think they are some sort of astronomical body or something, i think they are lazy a-holes

Damn this limit on +1s. Laziness was my original thought too. Adding Eris, Haumea and Makemake, not to mention Ceres, which would also qualify to the list of Planets would take too much work, and so instead of adding the worthy candidates to the field of 9, they disrupt a well known mnemonic study aid (My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas) by demoting Pluto. Makes no sense otherwise. ;)
