    Bitcoin to $1 Million

    I never paid it much mind. All I know is it’s an alternative form of money for computer nerds. I also know that the dumbest investor always loses and at least I am smart enough to realize that I’d be the dumbest investor.
  2. Let’s not pass the buck on to England. They have to deal with enough of these sorts of guilt trips already.

    My 600 lb life

    I didn’t know about the show. I thought he misspelled “wife.”
  4. They didn't jump the shark when they jumped the shark. They jumped the shark when they added Mork to the show. You can come back from that. One episode to highlight Henry Winkler's waterskiing talent/hobby isn't as big a deal as adding an all powerful space alien to the regular cast. I can't even fault them for that though seeing as they launched Robin Williams' career even though they f*cked up the show in the process.
  5. Eh... plant the seeds... give it water and 20-30 years or however long of positive media coverage ... fill the air with newspeak words/concepts similar to "patriarchy" "gender fluid" "nonbinary" "colorblindness is racism" etc ... use emotional appeals to fairness and justice... paint people opposed as evil... get reparations eventually.

    2019?

    My football energy is way down and I no longer do I feel as 'shark' as I did for all those many years. Compared to where I was before, weighing every nugget of info every week as it comes out, I feel like I'm going through the motions. Free Agents slip by me because I'd taken too long to check in for updates, despite having prime picking location due to my mediocre record, something that would never happen before. But I also feel far less pissed off/betrayed at the NFL than I was two seasons ago when things went south with the kneeling. Years ago, everybody used rotoworld for FF news, then the site got bought out and went to a paywall. The former owner got pissed off and went and formed rotowire, at least that's my understanding of how things went down based on very old, memory-straining, possibly incorrect information. So now, history repeats, rotowire is behind a half-paywall which I just found out about today. Hopefully history repeats a second time as people flock away from rotowire to a new site as they did to rotoworld all those years ago.
  7. With enough crying, apologies, emotional appeals, and sympathetic MSM publicity and coverage, mixing in a scolding towards those who disagree, we'll all feel bad for her eventually. That's the same playbook you use to get single moms eighteen years of taxpayer money, illegals into the country, and trannies into girls' sports competitions. You're such a cold hearted, mean person TimmySmith. Anyone who agrees with Timmy is a bad person... do that every day for ten years and she's a persecuted victim/hero like Colin Kaepernick.
  8. Eh ... for all I know it's his son and his brother's birthday.

    Shocking news in the world of rap music

    A double homicide in the world of rap isn't shocking. Shocking would be if I ever hear a rap song I like that wasn't written and performed by Weird Al.

    Joe Flacco traded to Denver

    History repeats. Elway was a shadow of himself when he finally won. His heyday was past him and those were the Terrell Davis years as #1 overall FF RB.

    Thugs destroy a gas station

    It's a solid quote overall but the math makes me shudder. I'm going to guess you were in high school 24 years ago which is when your history teacher would have said 130 years ago because we're at 154 years now.

    Joe Flacco traded to Denver

    His gamble of backing up the Brinks truck to Peyton Manning's house paid off. Coming off injury like that, he gambled the neck injury would be a non-issue and that Peyton still had juice in the tank.

    Trump Approval Rating at 52%

    You send Trump around the swing states he narrowly won in the Midwest talking about killing NAFTA and about record low unemployment and then compare that to the far leftist fruitcake candidate the Dems come up with who instinctively obsesses about LBGT, patriarchy, race bating wedge issues 24/7 and see what happens.
  15. We had found such brilliant people to design and plan it. Who possibly could have predicted it would go over budget like this? Inconceivable.
