  1. What made you laugh today?

    What's the difference between Rush Limbaugh and the Hindenburg?   One was a flaming nazi gasbag, the other was a dirigible.
  2.   Let's hope he's buried under a slab big enough to hold all those who can't wait to dance on it
  3. Ya gotta love Larry... his magazine not so much.  Compared to the two other most popular uh, men's entertainment mags of the era, it was definitely barnyard material. 
  4. Interesting, funny and informative, too.  Those pissed-off Robinhood traders/gamblers are going to lose because of what we all do: accept the user agreement without reading it. 
  5.   They're soon parted - but that was the whole point of wallstreetbets.  If you have watched it for any length of time, you'll be aware of a legendary WSB post by some guy who filmed himself opening his screen after making a massively risky trade the previous day only to see he'd lost 99% of it.  His response?  Guh!!!  Hundreds of thousands gone overnight, but the glory is being able to post about it.  These guys didn't give a rat's ass in hell if they lost, they bragged about it, it was and is a badge of honour. The point was having a huge amount of money in play to show the board.    What I see in the GME story is a pump-and-dump that got out of hand.  The place is stuffed full of posts from guys saying the stock  is going to the moon, to pluto, to the galaxy and beyond----- but every one with the disclaimer: I am  not a financial advisor and this is not advice I'm just a retard / an autist. That the stock-shorting fund managers got squeezed was just icing on the cake and pushed it up higher.  The story's still got legs, though.  Are any of the WSB traders going to get whacked for stock manipulation, for example?      
  6. US Presidential Election Fallout

    Looks like the signature of a six-year-old holding a pencil in his fist.

    Wouldn't that just turn up a lot of tractors, though?

      You're welcome!  In case you don't have covered parking with your residence, I'd suggest you start scouting around for one. You don't want a nice old car just sitting out on the street overnight.

      '76 actually, so not far off.     About that Imp - you might try asking at this shop first, if only to ask if they know anyone who works on them.

    LOL No way.  I mean, I didn't learn to drive in 1972...   Never seen or even heard of the Imp, but man, those MGs, you see them occasionally in Germany, some are very well cared for, -  wire wheels, new ragtop, paint. Real show cars.  Crappy electronics though.  Die anywhere on you.

    Ha!  I remember having to pull and set the choke on the car I learned to drive on - a 1972 MGB.  Damn, I'd forgotten the choke even existed. 
  12.   Ahem, ah, to be honest, that was copied word-for-word from a Seth Meyers monologue I saw the other day on YouTube. 
  13.   Well, the Supreme Court yesterday declined to hear two cases regarding whether Trump violated provisions of the constitution that bar a president from profiting from a foreign government, mainly because they just don't think it seems likely that Trump made a profit. 
  14. The Non-Political get away thread

      I wish they were silent!  Yackity-yack-yack on their smartphones on buses and the S-Bahn, until this is all over not getting on another one, but still...
  15. Baseball legend Hank Aaron, dead at 86. "Hank Aaron was not only a home run king, but a king of justice. In the face of racism and vitriol, he broke through barriers with grace on his way to becoming one of the greatest baseball players of all-time. We've lost a true trailblazer and American icon." - US Senator Cory Booker
