Battle of California Comments of the Week (Week 27, Final)

New, 16 comments

A look at last week's best reader comments, as voted by readers, from 4/5/2015-4/11/2015. The final Burrito of the season!

This is a reoccurring weekly feature during the regular season that awards the "El Burrito de la Victoria" trophy to the comments with the most amount of reader "recommendations" from the prior week. All recommendations were tallied the morning this feature was posted. With any luck, this will encourage you to not only comment more often, but to be funnier.

We're not going to have time for burritos during the the Ducks' race to the Stanley Cup which they will obviously definitely win and no one even disputes it, and we will definitely be too lazy to do it in the offseason when you folks don't even bother to comment. So here is the final Burrito installment of the 2014-15 season!

Great work this year everyone... but seriously, do better next season.

Comments of the Week

The Best

Old Kentucky Shark, with an assist from Stace...


Honorable Mentions

Our Sharks blogger emeritus on the Ducks being the only California team in the playoffs...

This is the most bullshit thing that has ever happened.

Science is dropped on all y'all...

can jet fuel melt steel beams?

No, but the modulus of elasticity starts dropping like a rock around 300 degrees, causing a corresponding drop in yield strength. At 1000 degrees the steel has lost a full half of its initial yield strength. Jet fuel at (800-1500) is obviously a problem. If the beams are just sitting on a table nothing would happen except they would get hot then get cold again (and you would have ruined the table). If however, they were under load you would have *yielded steel beams.

*yielded means the steel beam preforms elastically (like it sounds, stretchy, more fluid, like a rubber band, deforms, won’t regain original shape, etc) ie catastrophic failure. Like a chair designed to hold exactly 3 Dustin Penners. Heat cuts notches in the chair legs. The legs aren’t destroyed. But they sure don’t work as designed anymore.

Jet fuel won’t melt steel beams Lupul. Thank you for exposing him as a material scientist fraud Stace.

In response to fellow BoC commenter Thyme...

Thyme is definitely not on our side.


Regarding those nobodies who don't like the Ducks...

Not our fault the rest of the hockey fans in Southern California have shit taste

That time I discovered Stace was confused about who 9/11 Truthers are and that she unknowingly was one...

Yeah the 9/11 truther conspiracy theorists are all on about how a jet smashing the towers couldn’t possibly have done all of that damage, etc etc because facts and science aren’t real, or whatever.

I think Stace is actually a Truther but doesn’t realize it. This is great.

Break out the tinfoil hat, Stace!

That time I accidentally let my feelings for the blog slip out...

The Worst

Salty, salty Kings fans...

Hardly anyone in SoCal likes the Ducks. When they play each other at Staples, I’d say it’s 10% Duck fans. At Honda, it’s 50-50. We had big parades, they had a rally. And everyone hate Corey Perry.

Have a great summer! K.I.T.! See you next year! Call me!

But we're not taking a post-season break so you still have to read us, you have no choice!
