    No, it’s not useful at all. It put me in alignment with Trump with either Rand Paul or Ted Cruz second. Why do I say it’s not useful? Because all the places it aligned me with Trump were issues where he said certain things. I’m sorry, but I’ve learned from watching Donald speak that you can’t believe anything he says because he’ll change his mind in the very next breath. So what he said on a particular issue is completely irrelevant.

    So yeah, that site is a near complete waste.

    That would’ve been better if the bra had been a different size and color each time. It’s pretty obvious that the bra is just tied up inside the hankerchief. The girls aren’t even shocked by it.

    I was once involved in a slight of hand trick. The “magician” literally removed the watch from the guys arm and he didn’t even notice. The art of distraction. I was watching the guys hand the whole time because I had to wait for the watch to be handed to me. Then, I almost forgot to put it on and “act surprised”. When he did it, I was shocked that the guy didn’t notice. He pulled off his watch, lowered his hand, and simply handed it to me behind his back.

    Pretty interesting stuff and quite entertaining.

    It’s psychological. If you watch “Penn & Teller’s: Fool Us”, that’s the kind of trick that Penn likes the most because it involves using your mind and not just slight of hand.

    Except he would’ve had to have folded the card incredibly fast and swapped the paperclip. Maybe he is that fast, but that would have to be really fast.

  • June 22, 2016 at 2:52pm

    @seanscythe: Nice try. He would’ve had to have folded the other card and swapped them incredibly fast. Watch his hands. There’s virtually no way he could’ve folded the card during the swap. If the card wasn’t folded and was just laying there, then you’d probably be right. It was folded (twice) and had a paperclip around it.

    I’m sure there’s a trick to it, but no one has figure it out just yet.

    You are the same generation. The sad fact is that you’re in the minority in your generation. I don’t agree with the article, but it is a reality that millenials are by far the weakest, most entitled generation ever.

    Just because you can’t relate to them, doesn’t mean the vast majority aren’t like that. My niece can’t relate to them either and she’s, I think, 23.

    This is an excuse. An excuse to just find one more thing wrong with millenials.

    Gimme a break. Many people in my generaion, the so-called “Generation X” or perhaps even the generation before that, didn’t do much hard work with their hands either. That’s completely irrelevant to whether one has a strong grip or a firm handshake. A firm handshake is taught. I was taught at a very early age that a firm handshake was important and not just for interviews. A strong grip can be built up too.

    In short, I think this “study” was just looking for something else to say “See, millenials are weaker here too.”

    @DAV 50: No it doesn’t. It asks if you ever been convicted. It doesn’t ask if you’ve ever been accused or even just charged. Might want to actually take a look at the form before you fly off the handle and accuse people of defending the reporter. We aren’t defending the reporter. The gun store went above and beyond. They knew he was a reporter, so they probably googled his name. The article shows up on the first page of my search, though that’s probably because a lot of people are hitting it now.

    A background check won’t show a charge of domestic abuse. Background checks only show convictions and restraining orders.

  • [10] June 20, 2016 at 2:36pm

    No. The form asks if you were convicted. He wasn’t convicted. However, that still doesn’t mean the gun store has to complete the sale.

    They probably googled his name right after he left. The 6th hit down (it’s probably rising too) has the article about being charged with domestic abuse. It’s from 2005. They were caught in a catch 22. Approved the sale and there’s a chance he writes about how someone charged with domestic abuse can still buy a gun (which they should be able to do). Decline the sale and maybe he’ll write about how it’s good that they stopped him. But this knucklehead decides to flip that on its head and say that it’s because he’s a reporter.

    Interesting how the protestant attacks the messenger (the Warrens) and throws out “pagan” and “medieval superstition” when asked about demon possession, but the Catholic says “yes, absolutely, and it’s found in the Bible”. Even when asked about biblical evidence, the protestant just falls back to “they (Jesus and the Apostles) had different abilities”. The protestant was pretty much unwilling to even acknowledge the biblical proof that yes, demons do exist and they can possess people.

    I especially liked this part ‘“Souls can’t do anything in the physical realm, because they are by definition non-physical,” he said.’ Tell that to all the people that have gone through possession. Tell that to the people, in the Bible, that were possessed and that Jesus cast out demons.

    If this is any indication of the leaders in the protestant world, it’s no wonder all the protestant denominations are watering down the Bible. Maybe they should spend more time teaching the reality of scripture and less time trying to compromise their beliefs in order to be liked by the world.

    Watch the video again. There are 3 sections. The last section is her turning the camera on and saying goodbye with gunshots in the background.

  • [3] June 13, 2016 at 2:29pm

    She heard gunshots and pulled out her phone to put it on snapchat? I sympathize with her family and friends, but goodness gracious. If you hear gun shots, find an exit and get out. There is a reason why some of us make sure we know where the exits are when we go to places. Lots of people call us paranoid, but it’s for the “just in case” scenario (like this one) where we might need to leave in a hurry.

    This is what you call “proper channels”? LOL. No, the proper channels are 1) get a gun and 2) carry concealed (whether you’re allowed to or not).

    Of course, the real problem might just be this “The stalkers even took photos of Renee and her toddler from her personal Facebook page and shared them publicly,” Um, she knows who’s doing it. Simply change your settings to Friends only and then remove that person from your friends list and then tell EVERYONE you know what that person is doing. Problem solved.

    Goodness, people don’t know how to take control of things anymore. I would still carry concealed so that if you run into this person, you’re ready for whatever might ensue.

    @heartdude: The IRS has already stated that he can release his returns while the audit is taking place. Trump saying he’s under audit and can’t release them was simply a smoke screen.

    “Oh yes, but Cuban doesn’t have a few bankruptcies under his belt, what does he know.?”

    Uh, how to not lose money? He was fired from a job once.

    Why would anyone NEED to have a bankruptcy in order to know how bad things can be? They don’t. Yeah, it becomes something to learn from, but that doesn’t mean you do it over and over and over again. Going bankrupt should be something you really learn from and home to avoid, not something you use as a way of keeping yourself safe while screwing everyone that invested in you. Maybe that’s why all the “rich people” in NY hate him.

    Most of the properties with his name aren’t worth two boatloads. Remember what he said about Atlantic City and “getting out right in time” because Internet gambling is destroying the casinos? They made “great deals”, right? Yeah, except they weren’t. They just gave Trump the ability to get out after he’d built the casinos on lots of debt.

    I’d be shocked if anything other than Trump tower and The Apprentice ever made him any money, because by all counts, everything else lost money.

  • [3] June 1, 2016 at 8:18pm

    What building does he own? Which one(s)? Go ahead and check. The only building he actually owns is Trump Tower in NY. He doesn’t own any others.

  • [4] June 1, 2016 at 8:14pm

    They did buy a product. He built a product. Maybe you don’t think it’s a product because it was a piece of software, but it most certainly was a product.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Cuban#Audionet_.26_Broadcast.com

    Read the first line after the first paragraph. Cuban started selling off his portion of the Yahoo! stock in case of a market crash (because he’s a smart businessman that knows you don’t put all your eggs in one basket). That was in 1999. Yahoo! was king at the time. Take a look at Yahoo! now. Yahoo! has made a lot of bad business decisions. So many that I don’t think anyone thought Bing would become number 2 in the search space.
