Corporate needs you to find the difference between this picture and this picture.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

If we can't have pancakes, what about waffles?  Anyone want to argue their flatness or lack thereof?

Waffles are not flat.  Illinois is flat.

Is Illinois a waffle?

Well, here are the givens:

Illinois is flat.
Waffles are not flat.

Therefore, according to the transitive property: Illinois is, in fact, not a waffle.

That said, research is ongoing to determine if northeast Illinois is a deep-dish pizza.

BTW I just saw US 20 by Galena and it's NOT FLAT. This closes the thread.
