“The NFL rulebook says otherwise. Both you and the person who favorited your post can access the rulebook from nfl.com. Rule 11 Scoring, Section 2 Touchdown. The ball in possession of an airborne runner must be "on, above, or behind the plane of the goal line", or it must touch the pylon. This call was probably not overturned because although the video appears to show that the ball was outside of the pylon, it isn't conclusive enough to overturn the call.”

“All good points. But then we can look at little Bush and note his fitness despite his lifestyle choices. My point was to suggest that Ike was certainly among the fittest when we take into account the fact that there are many ways to measure fitness. For example, I bet Ike could do more pushups and situps than most of his peers.”

“Lest we forget...IKE (78) suffered a debiitating heart attack between his two terms as president.
He was a chain smoker from West point until just before his presidency. Did not eat properly either way back when. That said, he was still a great president.
Barack Obama was a smoker too. He also used drugs. Now it shows.
Teddy Roosevelt was a sickly child plagued with bad asthma. He exercised his way to health.
Fittest presidents? Just look who we have(d) live(d) a long life: John Adams and Herbert Hoover each 90. Ronald Reagan and Gerald Ford, each 93. George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter each now 88. Harry Truman, 88, just to name a few.
FDR, 63, LBJ, 64 on the short end of the stick; so too, with Calvin Coolidge and Teddy Roosevelt both 61.”
“HA! Not buying it, particularly when it comes from something called a "school corporation". While I believe that the students did access the photo(s) without permission, I see no reason to believe that the events as transpired stem from an innocuous pic. Doesn't pass the smell test, and I have an excellent sniffer.”

“BUT THE CLINTONS ARE REALLY LIKED ALL OVER THE WORLD WHICH IS WHY OBAMA WANTED HER IN THE FIRST PLACE. IT WAS NOT NECESSARY FOR THE REASONS YOU SUGGEST AND IF IT WAS IT SHOWS HOW GOOD THE CLINTONS ARE IN WANTING TO DO WHAT IS BEST FOR THE US AND NOT FOR THEMSELVES.”
“Good points. And yes, the teacher is at fault. It occurs to me that thinking that you can hand kids a device and expect them to only do one thing with it is a bit like handing them a book and expecting them to only read one word on the pages.”
“After he was exposed for his pedestrian bowling skills, I was one of the bowlers who helped him out with his delivery. I've always been thankful, though, that Obama has never been photographed while sliding over the line with his left foot, like RMN was. Of course, RMH was better at opening up his shoulders and powering through.”

“Yes, I imagine that line meant very little to RMN. ”
“All very nice points, but they don't amount to a refutation of mine.”

“She did not necessarily have to take the job and polotically it may have been better for her to have remained a New York Senator. Who would you think would be better qualified because she is very popular. Iff you saw footage of her on her first day as Secretary of State the employees there were certainly excited so they must have thought she was qualified ,WHO DO YOU THINK WAS BETTER QUALIFIED.”
“I'd point out that this compelling material is coming from someone who got her current job because Obama wanted to ensure that he kept his "enemies closer", as opposed to selecting the most qualified person available.”

“I wouls=d like to point out that Hillary has been a superb Secretary of State certainly far superior to Condoleeza Rice and she has been a team player from the get go for Obama and gave up a secure Senate seat to help him and the world out.”
sunshynem2 on Oct 18, 2012 at 17:15:22
“So Hillary is not qualified to be SOS, in your opinion? Can you elaborate?”
“Agreed. But consider that the teacher probably intended to sync work-related things, and just forgot or didn't know that more things than that were synced. So I think her intent was not to use the pad for personal use.”

“I'm with FunctionOfTheCrisp. I'm a teacher and like most colleagues I know, I am often using my own technology at work for a variety of reasons. In this case, for instance, I'm pretty sure the district didn't issue her an iPhone, so she probably took some classroom photos or something with her own phone and shared them with student iPads and made a mistake. As a professional, the boundary between my work life and my personal life is not clear cut. I tutor my students and manage my courses online from wherever I happen to be from early morning to late at night. It's totally impractical to lug two devices around with me all the time. So just as I do work on my personal devices at home, I occasionally check my email or read some news on a work computer. I can see how this could happen and its very unlikely this teacher intended this.”
