I probably shouldn't have started this conversation. Face recognition at Super Bowl games started in 2001 in Tampa, 14 years ago. The results were dismal, but negative public opinion about the use of the technology was not. Since then the technology has greatly improved and so has the secrecy and absence of publicity.

A friend of mine works security at Burning Man. You can google that all day and all you find is what can happen if you get your picture taken and it ends up on facebook. You do not find on the internet about the technology that takes place behind the curtain. I don't think some the people with outstanding warrants that are coincidentally discovered in attendance at either event have any idea how they were discovered.

I'll submit that the vast majority of folks with outstanding warrants are not paying $300 to $10,000 for Super Bowl tickets. Ones living a comfortable life like that where they can afford those tickets also has jobs and LinkedIn profiles, where they could have been served warrants.

Burning Man attracts lots of hippies. Not corporate ticket buyers like Supebowl.

Outstanding warrants are on stret people, low level drugs dealers, people with no fixed, or rapidly changing addresses.

Super Bowl security is on topic isn't it?

You're actually incorrect, many corporate and high net-worth individuals attend Burning Man. In fact, many CEOs and top ranking employees in the valley go. The more famous ones like Elon Musk, Eric Schmidt, Mark Zuckerberg etc. attend regularly.

Ok well, nobody gets caught by facial software there or at Super Biwl from what I can see. And I stil bet the average Burning Man guest has way lower net worth / less warrants than a Superbowl attendee.

Ok to hell with that topic, (dasmo wants to start making bets) so let's move on to the betting odds. This is going to be a close game "odds" wise. No super bowl has ever had even odds....but this one may be close to that.

IMO anything over 60" and you want a projector.

I set one up the other day for someone... $800 for 120" 1080p...

Budget projectors can be pretty good these days.


Major issues using projectors in rooms with too much ambient lighting. There are also other issues, such as noise, and the need to run wires.

What are the odds of a wardrobe malfunction happening?  And whose wardrobe?  :cheers:

Already seen Katy Perry naked, so probably not her:

Lenny Kravitz I guess.

The Seahawks have reportedly made a huge contract extension offer to Lynch. Man I hope they overpay big time to keep Wilson and Lynch around.

I think it's widely expected that Wilson will become the highest-paid player in the year when he renegotiates this off-season.

 

Lynch is quite the machine, for sure.  It's really something to watch when you can hand the ball to the same guy over and over again, and he consistently makes yards.  4.7 ypc this year.

Lynch is an excellent player. Weird dude, great player. He's the straw that stirs the Seahawks' drink, offensively. Usually that's the QB, but not in Seattle. They pretty much have to open up their wallet to bring him back, but as a fan of a different NFC team, I smile at the thought of their 30 year old RB having a $10M cap number.

I think Wilson is overrated too.  But if at the end of today he has two Superbowl rings, I'll be in the minority there I suppose.

Lynchbos getting rather old for a long term contract. Hopefully this is a 3 year deal at most.
