  1. It seems obvious that there will be an attempt made by the Russians to snuff her out. It would be a feather in the cap for them, and what would be the repercussion? I hope whoever is in charge of keeping her safe is smart and vigilant.

    Let's talk about investing! Stock market, ETF, etc.

    I thought about starting a new thread, but this one is still active, so... What a wild year. I know the long term strategy for success is to buy low overhead index funds and leave the money in, but it certainly seems like the market is primed for a big fall. Though it has bounced back several times already when it seemed about to crumble. Down 800 today. If only McD5 was here with his charts to tell us for sure what is about to happen. So we'd know to do the opposite.

    There aren't mail in lottery ticket results. If the voting system was entirely electronic, you'd get results as fast as the lottery.

    Trump and his cabinet/buffoonery- Get your bunkers ready!

    Obama definitely could and should have been stronger about several things. Syria, realizing that the R's were at war with him, stuff like that. But he didn't make a show of strength to mask weakness, which is what Trump does. It's all bravado "I'd run into the school without a gun" "Rough him up" "Guys that bodyslam people are my kinda guys". He talks big and tough, but we all know he isn't. It's the obvious hypocrisy that bothers me. If you have an example of Obama being a hypocrite and feel compelled to share it, go ahead. But it doesn't in any way change what Trump is, and seems like you're looking to deflect from that by going this route.

    Now imagine this 40 times a season, and maybe have a little more compassion for Wiz fans.
  6. Since there's no perfect solution, let's do nothing? I'm with Burgold.

    Gameday Thread

    I don't know if it was mentioned during the game, is the NFC East wide open?
  8. On the one hand, we're constantly rebuilding. On the other, I wish this team's management realized that we're bad enough to need to rebuild.
  9. "Might have missed a call or two" on two game changing plays. This is a different game if those are called correctly. The refs shouldn't be blamed too much or too little. Atlanta has outplayed us, but they've gotten some gifts as well. This should be a closer game, and the refs have played a role in that.

    https://www.basketball-reference.com/leaders/team_pts.html Phoenix got 107 in a first half in 1990
  11. Shouldn't the Giants only have one timeout? They lost the challenge, then called timeout after the third down run. Am I wrong?
