What's this ridiculous scoreboard all about? This is the most interesting story I know. In 1916, the John Heisman coached Georgia Tech football team was the best on the planet. There was no one enrolled at Georgia Tech who had ever seen them lose a game. Heisman routinely squabbled with local reporters, claiming that there was no limit to the number of points his teams could score.

On the afternoon of October 7, Cumberland College took the field at the flats. For the next 55 minutes, Georgia Tech scored approximately every ninety seconds. The final score was 222-0.

There's a backstory here, and SBNATION's Jon Bois tells it in the Pretty Good series.. There's a book (now out of print, but I have a copy) titled "You Dropped It, You Pick it Up!" that contains first-hand accounts. I always thought this story would make a good novel or maybe a movie with George Clooney playing Heisman. While we wait, you might want to spend twenty minutes or so watching Bois's wonderful retelling of the story behind the most lopsided football game every played.

Georgia’s voting systems are perfectly engineered to hide hacks and intrusions. When your elected leaders say there is no evidence that Georgia elections have been hacked, they are right! Diebold voting machines have been designed to destroy all traces of intrusion. Like Larry Vaughn, the fictional mayor of Amity, New York in “Jaws” they are trying to convince you that everything is OK. It is not.
