  1. [Official] Toronto Blue Jays Major League Baseball thread

    Nope. Wilbur more or less explained it.
  2. Kabul wedding hall blast kills 43 people

    The BBC shed a little light on that claim: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-44807271
  3. it's a combination of that and the fact that somewhere, Hillary Clinton is sacrificing a chicken and sticking pins into a mock-up of the NYSE.....
  4. So the Blowhard in Chief was asked who should be Time's Person of the Year. One guess who his answer was..... https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/newspolitics/trump-i-cant-imagine-anybody-else-other-than-myself-for-time-person-of-the-year/ar-BBPVy14?li=AAggFp5 If there's any justice (pun intended), the winner will be Christine Blasey Ford....
  5. [Official] Toronto Blue Jays Major League Baseball thread

    Shi Davidi was talking about this at the GM meetings. It has something to do with the years of service thing. The Jays are calling it "development" just so the reason isn't so obvious. Don't worry about Vlad, though. Stephen Brunt asked him about it and his response was basically "I've waited my whole life to be an MLB player. What's another month or two?"
  6. Luckily, Trump is wearing a coat so you can tell them apart.....
  7. The Case of the Missing Saudi Journalist

    Once again, we see that money "Trumps" basic human decency: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/‘maybe-he-did-and-maybe-he-didn’t’-trump-says-us-will-stand-by-saudis-despite-khashoggi-murder/ar-BBPV77M?li=AAggNb9 According to the CIA, MBS not only knew about it, he ordered it.... https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/cia-concludes-saudi-crown-prince-ordered-jamal-khashoggis-assassination/2018/11/16/98c89fe6-e9b2-11e8-a939-9469f1166f9d_story.html?utm_term=.23509de7f70c ...but what do they know...? Maybe someone should remind Bone Spurs who carried out the 9/11 attacks.....
  8. Here we go again.... https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/gunman-kills-12-in-horrific-mass-shooting-at-thousand-oaks-bar-packed-with-college-students/ar-BBPtugs?li=AAggNb9&ocid=wispr
  9. Mass shooting at Thousand Oaks bar

    This story reinforces what some of us have been saying about domestic violence and how it often leads to gun violence: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-46280181
  10. looks like little Donny might be getting a new toy for Christmas: https://www.foxnews.com/tech/newly-released-images-offer-first-glimpse-of-next-generation-marine-one-prototype Pretty sharp looking machine.....no word though, on whether you can get it wet.....
  11. He didn't exactly invent it..... He just sold the rights to put his name on it...."Trump Universe"....there's a big sign right beside VY Canis Majoris (The "Big Dog").... At first, Trump didn't want to do it, (he didn't like the idea of a star bigger than him) but Jared told him that it was bigger than Obama's star and that Putin was going to annex it if he didn't get there first....
  12. It looks like Trump's penchant for blaming others is rubbing off on his cabinet: https://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/417489-zinke-blames-environmental-radicals-for-deadly-california-fires If the name sounds familiar, it's because Zinke is somewhat famous (infamous?) for referring to himself as a Geologist, despite never having worked as one.
  13. NFL thread

    I agree. Unfortunately, I also agree that this is probably career ending.
  14. [Official] Toronto Blue Jays Major League Baseball thread

    They've got another one as well. Righty Jackson McClelland has also topped 100, but like a lot of guys who throw that hard, has trouble with control. He's Rule 5 eligible, so it remains to be seen if the Jays can keep him. You hate to lose a guy with that kind of arm, but the Jays have a lot of prospects....
  15. I was having a hard time deciding where to post this....since 9/11 was a major impetus for increased Air Marshal presence, I thought I'd post it here: https://www.propublica.org/article/tsa-releases-data-on-air-marshal-misconduct-7-years-after-we-asked 250 air marshals have been terminated for misconduct; another 400 resigned or retired while facing investigation. Air marshals have been suspended more than 900 times, resulting in more than 4,600 days lost to misconduct. The Washington field office had the most incidents with 530 cases, followed by New York with 471, Chicago and Dallas with 373 each and Los Angeles with 363. There were 85 cases at air marshal headquarters, highlighting that in some cases, misconduct has extended to the top brass. I could look it up, I suppose, but I honestly can't think of a single report of an Air Marshal preventing a terrorist attack. So do we really need these guys?
  16. Edmonton Oilers 2018-2019

    Well......except for the 1990 Stanley Cup.....
  17. Edmonton Oilers 2018-2019

    I read an extremely biased article on this last night. For a few minutes, I was wondering when Sportsnet.ca became Calgary cheerleaders, but then I realized the article was by the same POS who was joking about Petey's concussion: https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/matthew-tkachuk-re-ignited-spirit-battle-alberta/
  18. But Trump isn't paid to be confused as Nigel..... (are we going to play Stonehenge tonight?)
  19. NFL thread

    Horrible luck for Alex Smith and the 'Skins.... ....and 33 years to the day that Joe Theismann had his leg snapped by LT....
  20. Rule #1: When visiting places that have been hit with disasters, (and I mean besides Trump) get the name of the place you're visiting right: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/trump-paradise-pleasure-california-wildfires-malibu-woolsey-fire-a8640656.html
  21. Speaking of "stupid names", this is the president of the United States, resorting to name-calling.... https://www.cnn.com/2018/11/18/politics/trump-schiff-little-adam-schitt-tweet/index.html
  22. The Case of the Missing Saudi Journalist

    You mean this rug?
  23. Once again, Bone Spurs shows his true colors when it comes to the military: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/newspolitics/architect-of-bin-laden-raid-trump-threatens-the-constitution-when-he-attacks-the-media/ar-BBPR2l9?li=AAggNb9 I don't know about anyone else, but I'll take the word of the Admiral, over that of the cadet....
  24. I have tried, but like Stonehenge, Spontaneous Human Combustion, the Bermuda Triangle and how to fold a fitted sheet, some things aren't meant to be understood....
