    Hey red, as long time suffering Eagles fan I have seen more than my fill of Donovan. If you have wide-outs that can stretch the field you'll be okay but slant routes and other short to medium patterns are his bane.

    He will throw worm balls. Plus, Minnesota got him for two 6th round draft choices?! Not saying much...

    At least with Randall you went to the playoffs.

    Oh you're right about the 98 season. We had Moss and Carter on either end to go up and get it and it was very successful (set a points in a season record (344) if I remember. We do not have that wide out talent now however. This could get bad.....like Les Steckel bad. We have a QB that cant throw upfield...and receivers who cant catch down-field. :)

    You still can't quite wrap your head around the "you are" equals "you're" concept, can you?

    But thanks for taking McNabb off our hands. I'm way too lazy to boo him all the way from PA. I looked into my crystal ball and herewith make this prediction, "next year will be a rebuilding year for the Vikings".....:haha:

    "Military intelligence" has always been considered the textbook example of an "oxymoron". Hey, don't shoot me, I'm only the messenger.

    That recollection somehow strikes me as quite obscene.

    Oh look, the guy who wrote !E6 just weighed in:

    "So what you're saying is, IE is sort of like the dunce cap of the internet?"

    What about people who use multiple browsers?

    If we take this seriously, it would mean an FF user becomes dumber as soon as he/she starts IE x.xx ......

    You just about summed it up, with the exception of one word.

    Foxconn may have to install safety nets around the outside of their factories, those robots jumping off buildings will be expensive.

    No problem. If the robots are Foxconn "Quantum Force" branded they will break down before they climb halfway to the roof....assuming they don't try to "suicide" out by wiping their programming after becoming jealous at seeing the Asus and Gigabyte robots showing off their feature sets!

    I wonder where that places users of multiple browsers. I have Opera, Chrome, Firefox and IE installed in my various machines with Opera and Firefox seeing the highest usage. My latest favorites are Opera Next 12 Pre-Alpha and the 64-bit nightly build of Firefox 8.

    You add them up!

    So, Opera + IE = 230-IQ

    Hell Yeah! :)

    Great. I feel smarter already using Firefox, but I guess I should switch to Opera just in case... The fact is there are so many reasons why people choose a particular browser and is mostly shallow reasons, that I believe it has nothing to do with intelligence, but with personal preferences, as in terms of performances, options they`re not too far apart.

    No surprise here.
    This generation is by far the dumbest in the last several hundred years.

    Pity this generation lacks the intellect to provide links which (probably don't) support their dumba$s statements.

    I'm sure our libtard moronic government funded this waste of a study with our tax dollars.
