I Almost Forgot: Harry Edwards Needs to Stay Away from Lawrence Until He Pays Us Back for Jacking Jaylen Brown!!!!
Not only did Harry jack Jaylen for old Okie Baller Cuonzo, but then they both wasted Jaylen.
KU was ring worthy with Jaylen.
You owe us one big time, Asphalt Dome.
I know, Harry, I respect you for all you have done for sports and for African American athletes. I’m glad you’ve got your little sports institute that keeps you busy when your eye brows get the color of Sierra cement, but…
You still jacked a player one Okie Baller needed for the good of another Okie Baller and that’s a no-n0 in the Okie Baller Mafia.
Its also bad form for you to do that to the Father of All Basketball programs.
As a result, we have sent Jarod Haase to Stanford to kick your team’s ass in conference for the foreseeable future, and to recruit Bay Area players out from under the Cal Bears’ noses.
But, Harry, if you can find a way to cut us into the Nike gravy train, well, then I will personally invite your ass back.
P.S.: My wife’s grandfather was Berkeley class of 1919, so I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for Cal men. But they’ve got to recognize you don’t steal hoopahs from the Father of all Basketball Programs. Pete Newell, Harry Edwards, or not!!
@jaybate-1.0 Sooooo…off the topic a bit, but your tag line mentions Wernher von Braun. Quite a fascinating fellow, wasn’t he? So, where did he gain his knowledge that was light years ahead of his time??? Inquiring minds want to know…
@jaybate-1.0 Sooooo…off the topic a bit, but your tag line mentions Wernher von Braun. Quite a fascinating fellow, wasn’t he? So, where did he gain his knowledge that was light years ahead of his time??? Inquiring minds want to know… von Braun sported the biggest paper clip of them all! Wasn’t Wernher just reverse engineering the Foo Fighters reported in Europe in WW2?
@rocketdog I think he had direct help.
von Braun possessed the knowledge that was cutting edge for his time. He got it from reading Russian Konstantin Tsiolkowsky’s pioneering theorizing about the engineering potential for liquid fueled rocketry space travel between 1890 and 1919.
von Braun also learned cutting edge rocket engineering from studying under Hans Oberth at Technical Institute of Berlin and later from interactions with American Robert Goddard’s pioneering work in liquid oxygen fueled rockets using gyros and variable tail fins.
And von Braun’s later forecasting of orbiting space stations and moon and Martian bases comes straight out Tsiolkowsky’s books.
So: I don’t think aliens are exo-governments are necessary to explain von Braun’s work.
What does need explanation is why von Braun lead a team in 1967 to Antartica to retrieve a bunch of moon rock meteorites shortly before the US Apollo space program went to the moon and brought back a bunch of alleged moon rocks, most of which can no longer be found, and which turn up in places like Neil Armstrong’s closet found after his death by his wife?
@jaybate-1.0 I get my assumptions from Ancient Aliens, which could be considered dubious, for sure. You’re probably right.

Interesting. This is a story I’d never heard. Surely you’re not suggesting that the fake moon landing conspiracy theories have merit. We’ve been deceived by our government more than we know, but I don’t think I can accept that notion. I was barely nine when Neil Armstrong first stepped on the moon and it was magical for me at the time. The space program inspired me and my generation to embrace technology and I felt positive about our future. I’m still hanging on to that.
Like your signature line!
Historians leave out the decisive parts much of the time.
Oil, gas and central banking are almost never mentioned as drivers of war in history books and they are at the center of every US war since the CIVIL War.
Civil War historians essentially never explain that the Civil War was fundamentally a battle for which private oligarchy, the North or the South, would get to control the trade routes through the Western Hemisphere, by building the transcontinental railroad and telegraph, in order to then build the interocean canal in Tehuantepec, Mexico, or Nicaragua, or Panama.
Civil War historians also rarely put into realistic perspective that the US Civil War was just one of two huge wars going on in North America simultaneously and for inter connected reasons. The other was the European four power invasion of Mexico. The US Civil War can only be comprehended usefully in conjunction with the European invasion of Mexico. Great Britain was financing and enabling both wars in the early years of both wars in pursuit of a trade route agenda.
Simply adding (not revising) what historians leave out always brings puzzling historical events into sharp clarity.
