  1. Both teams deserve the L in this game. There should be no winner.
  2. Social Services needs to get involved.

    It's a marathon, not a sprint

    So much for that cliche ... Eliud Kipchoge runs 26.2 miles in 1:59:40, averaging 4:34/mile ... that's 15.4 seconds for the length of a football field more than 461 times in a row. https://www.npr.org/2019/10/12/769732863/eliud-kipchoge-dashes-past-2-hour-marathon-barrier-in-assisted-event
  4. That beard probably is home to a woodland creature that maintains it.

    What is the perfect age - WSJ

    Life is like a box of chocolates. As you get into old age there are fewer and fewer choices left, until eventually the only option are the ones with the rough gummy coconut centers. And at that point you might as well throw the 'box' away. For me it's not simply a number, it depends on when you chose to do things: in our mid-20s, kid-free and starting out on our life together was awesome. The time with babies and little kids was magical. Survive the middle-school and high school years as best you can without committing violent criminal acts against them and each other; during this time you will be entirely miserable so you might as well spend no money on yourselves, aside from alcohol, so you can save as much as you can so that when the kids leave home for college money issues are mostly taken care of. Once kids are out of the house hopefully career is really kicking in with fulfillment and money and you can go back to being like your 20s but with more wisdom and disposable income.

    Again showing the need for Keita, or some creative force in midfield, for when the front three don’t get it done. I’d say Fabinho should have been covering that space for the goal, but commentators blamed big Virg.

    What is the perfect age - WSJ

    Are your best years ahead of you or behind you? The ideal age is a question that Jay Olshansky thinks about often. Dr. Olshansky, an epidemiologist, is researching ways to slow down the process of aging, by studying things like the genetics of long-lived individuals. “If you had a pill that could stop biological aging in its tracks, when would you take it?” asks Dr. Olshansky, a professor at UIC School of Public Health in Chicago. He asks his university students this question. Many think 30 is old, so they would take the pill in their 20s. He asked his father, then 95 years old. His father said 50 was the best year because the kids were grown and he was in good health. Dr. Olshanky, 63, says life is good for him now, but if he had to pick a perfect year, it would probably be 50, too, because that was before he started having little aches and pains. https://www.wsj.com/articles/what-is-the-perfect-age-1515844860
  8. I think these clowns deserve everything they get, but the people who enabled by cheating on tests and taking bribes deserve much worse. But it also highlights an issue that people with very average talent playing uncompetitive sports are getting an admissions advantage for the nation’s top schools.

    Tax Bill

    VA sent me a check for $220 today. We’re gonna be rich! Except i’ll probably just spend it on a nice bottle or two at the local ABC. Did the mobile deposit thing and noticed the shadow of a bottle cast across the check.
  10. Mountain climbers don’t use ladders, because you know, mountains are typically quite high. Walls are not as tall as mountains. Threatening “fire and fury like the world has never seen” is usually a pre-requisite for the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Erosion Of The Redskins Fanbase

    It’s already 10 o’clock on a work night and it’s only the beginning of the second half. I wouldn’t expect many skins fans to want to stay so they will get home in the early hours when this is the fare.

    I'm looking forward to see what a healthy Keita can do. The biggest concern is the drop off when Firminho is not available. Without him I think they need to play a different system.
