  1. The academic fraud I could understand being difficult to track if you have skillful operators taking the SAT on your behalf, but how does the Georgetown tennis coach manage to get paid $2.7M in bribes to offer places for kids who are not close to being viable recruits. One kid didn't play a tournament during her high school yet claimed to be top 50 in the nation Doesn't every D I sport have websites and fans analyzing every incoming class? Or is the coach somehow telling admission that he is 'recruiting' kids who are never announced as recruits?

    The Brexit Thread

    I had a family member working in Canary Wharf on the day that Brexit happened. Everyone looked around and asked who's going to occupy all the skyscrapers? Because all of them were predicated on being part of the EU. They had NO reason to be there if the UK left.
  3. Much like you get a home insurance "discount" by having an alarm, maybe the insurers should do the same. Keep packs of dangerous dogs on the premises ... higher premiums. No visits for checkup to GP or dentist in the last X months ... higher deductible or premiums No vaccinations on file ... MUCH higher deductible or premiums

    The Parenting Thread II - Advice, Tips, Etc

    Because that sometimes isn't enough. Anyone who coaches will sooner or later come across parents who accept that their kid doesn't deserve more playing time based on ability, but they still argue that they deserve to play because of seniority, that lack of playing time is upsetting the kid etc.
  5. You're not a fan of the BBC? You're missing out.
  6. Serious question ... should insurance cover treatment in such cases? I mean, if my home burned down because I decided to light a campfire in my living room would the insurance company pay for the loss?

    But it doesn't have to be like that. Send it up to the VAR and they watch it from the angles available and make a call. If it's not a clear error then the decision on the field stands.

    Aside from the whole team playing with no touch, Liverpool need something more creative in midfield.
  9. It's common when the golf course is owned by the mob.

    Having the meeting in the first place is a total failure in diplomacy.

    The Brexit Thread

    The situation is quite different between the U.K. Norway is a Schengen country and Norway Parliament "rubber stamps" most EU laws.

    Liverpool are not close to creating enough. Milner's crossing is just awful. United seem to be giving him the space and he's not punished them for it. Maybe Shaq will create something different

    The Jussie Smollet Fiasco

    Are you sure about that? I was flicking through the news channels the other night and Tucker Carlson used this story to claim that hate crimes are so rare that people have to make them up .... and segwayed from this story into a claim that anti-Semitic attacks are inflated and over-reported
