    Getting back on topic, Dortmund are only 3 points behind Bayern for first.

    This doesn't seem like one of their better teams on paper but they are gaining some momentum after the winter break. Hopefully they can keep the pressure on Bayern this year.

    They face a vulnerable Chelsea in the champions league and are still alive in the German cup.

    A lot to play for if Reyna can stay healthy.

    They will never catch Bayern because they are perennially bad on D... but I could see them taking care of Chelsea. That would be pretty cool... especially if Gio has a say in it.

    They’ve given up 2 goals in last three games. Maybe they’re figuring it out? We can hope!

    0 in the last 45'! Trend is positive!!

    But first they have to get past the juggernaut that is Union!

    Rather than assuming @LouisianaViking07/09 had some nefarious intent, you should be happy he did his own research. Not long ago his post would've been just a random question asking how many goals Gio has in the BL.

    It might turn out to be the pivotal moment for them and I don't think it was lost on Terzic and his staff. They reacted like they had just won the champions league or something.

    well he's forcing me to assume by dodging the question of why he is posting this "research"

    I think he’s just posting the numbers. You know what assuming does ;).

    Does anyone know if Louisiana Viking is doing his own research now?

    Oh, and what’s the dry cleaner nearest to my apartment?

    I farm that out to my 6th and 7th graders to do for extra credit ;)

    Sadly, too many of today's 6th and 7th graders could find Grumpy's apartment - and hack his Ring - in a few short minutes.

    Kids can't even comprehend a filesystem. They understand touch screens but everything behind that is a black box for them. My 9th grader niece doesn't know where her Downloads folder is. Tech advancement, which strives to be intuitive and frictionless, has continued apace, but tech understanding, which requires concrete understanding of the abstract, has dropped.

    Not just kids. I am slowly losing my ability to save my files in an organized way. Just dump them in one folder and have Search figure it out.

    He has a point. Very few of my students can even screenshot from their chromebooks. Maybe they're just lazy but mostly they never bothered to learn beyond "wifi for the Internet".

    I use a shitload of file cabinets and hanging files. I’ve built a high functioning AI robot that whizzes around and gets files for me. It’s not quite as fast as a computer, but very intuitive. I also hire about 20 folk to press sheets of onion paper on monitors and transcribe everything. Several just work on unfinished items or my version of “saved working” files. It creates jobs and everyone knows the system!

    Sure, most kids know as little about computers today as most kids knew about rebuilding a small-block with a thrown rod when I was in 9th grade - but the ones that do know it better than many adults. Kid across the street is still in HS, has a six-figure grossing on-line gaming industry with 4 other HS employees (he said he'd review my resume if they decide to expand...) That kid already knows where Grumpy lives - and know his dry cleaning bill...
