agreed, but seeing as he is an actual athlete it doesn't really make much sense for him to fully develop his upper body, since by doing so would it actually hurt his performance as the added weight to his upper body is a "useless" weight since it doesn't aid in his athletic perfromance and in fact would make it harder for him to perform optimally

and on a side note, it always used to bother me to watch a boxing match where a built and scuplted black dude would get dropped by some toady mexican with zero muscle seperation and having a waist the same size as his chest Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Since when did riding a bicycle make one an athlete?   Everybody can ride a bike, but not everybody can skate or throw a football 80 yards.

This defines a majority of my friends' marriages. Get their dicks wet and they're all in. Now it's pushing 20 years later and almost every one is crying the blues.

x100 The thing that made you crazy for that woman has long since vanished.  The ones that have gotten divorced usually never recover.  I know several fellas that are starting over at 60.  60! When you should be able to kick back and relax.  Just cause things are good now don't get too comfortable.  Oh and make sure you have a secret stash even your mother doesn't know about.  You'll thank me later.

Can't we invent some nukes that only target those with sun tans?

No, but we can develop viruses that target specific genetic markers.

I read your post about the wine tasting thing,
I had done something similar---but, I got no second chance. And I conceded no mistake. And that WAS the mistake. If there was ever one that got away, it would be her.
We all grow up and we all must realize, that it is not "just me" when it comes to relationships...because if you think that way, it will be just "you"---watching the Olympic opening ceremonies with your mother.

Look on the bright side, the one that got away is probably a fat cow by now.  You could be one of those guys walking through Walmart being led by a 250lb whale with three little estrogen filled spawns balling their eyes out because the can't have the latest thing.  You'd be thinking "How did I get here?' as you pray for a bullet to end it all.

Perfect diversion. Didn't the Romans put on more gladiator events to keep the public diverted from the decay and accellerating decay of the Roman Empire?

Yes, you are catching on.  Our own city is bankrupt but they want to build a new stadium.

More ignorance from one of your articles -
WTF is with people and assuming its an automatic weapon because its an Assault rifle?

This kind of stupidity really pisses me off. Dumbshits hear "Assault Rifle" and just assume its an automatic weapon firing 900 RPM  - its not, its a fucking semi-automatic riflen that fires at the same rate as any other semi-automatic hunting rifle.

Everyone demonizes these firearms without even knowing what the fuck theyre talking about, and it really irritates me.

Serious question, how hard is it to make a semi automatic fully automatic?  I don't know shit about guns.  I tell people I don't need a weapon, I am the weapon. Grin
817  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Watch and learn gun grabbers. This is why people need guns in this country. on: July 28, 2012, 12:43:21 PM

truth, I have an AR, Ak47, a .308 scoped rifle, etc, handguns, etc.   TBH, if I ever wanted to really fuck shit up, the .308 rifle at 300 yards out bolt action is what I would choose from a high position is what I would pick over a spray and pray w the AR or handguns.

Admit it, you've already picked out a high perch.

fucking peanuts when compared to the fraud and tax avoidance the uber rich are guilty of. not only guilty, but often aided and abetted by the very cunts who'll be down on you like a ton of fucking bricks if tou ever decide to get fanciful with the old tax returns.   



£13tn hoard hidden from taxman by global elite

• Study estimates staggering size of offshore economy
• Private banks help wealthiest to move cash into havens

A global super-rich elite has exploited gaps in cross-border tax rules to hide an extraordinary £13 trillion ($21tn) of wealth offshore – as much as the American and Japanese GDPs put together – according to research commissioned by the campaign group Tax Justice Network.

James Henry, former chief economist at consultancy McKinsey and an expert on tax havens, has compiled the most detailed estimates yet of the size of the offshore economy in a new report, The Price of Offshore Revisited, released exclusively to the Observer.

He shows that at least £13tn – perhaps up to £20tn – has leaked out of scores of countries into secretive jurisdictions such as Switzerland and the Cayman Islands with the help of private banks, which vie to attract the assets of so-called high net-worth individuals. Their wealth is, as Henry puts it, "protected by a highly paid, industrious bevy of professional enablers in the private banking, legal, accounting and investment industries taking advantage of the increasingly borderless, frictionless global economy". According to Henry's research, the top 10 private banks, which include UBS and Credit Suisse in Switzerland, as well as the US investment bank Goldman Sachs, managed more than £4tn in 2010, a sharp rise from £1.5tn five years earlier.

The detailed analysis in the report, compiled using data from a range of sources, including the Bank of International Settlements and the International Monetary Fund, suggests that for many developing countries the cumulative value of the capital that has flowed out of their economies since the 1970s would be more than enough to pay off their debts to the rest of the world.

Oil-rich states with an internationally mobile elite have been especially prone to watching their wealth disappear into offshore bank accounts instead of being invested at home, the research suggests. Once the returns on investing the hidden assets is included, almost £500bn has left Russia since the early 1990s when its economy was opened up. Saudi Arabia has seen £197bn flood out since the mid-1970s, and Nigeria £196bn.

"The problem here is that the assets of these countries are held by a small number of wealthy individuals while the debts are shouldered by the ordinary people of these countries through their governments," the report says.

The sheer size of the cash pile sitting out of reach of tax authorities is so great that it suggests standard measures of inequality radically underestimate the true gap between rich and poor. According to Henry's calculations, £6.3tn of assets is owned by only 92,000 people, or 0.001% of the world's population – a tiny class of the mega-rich who have more in common with each other than those at the bottom of the income scale in their own societies.

"These estimates reveal a staggering failure: inequality is much, much worse than official statistics show, but politicians are still relying on trickle-down to transfer wealth to poorer people," said John Christensen of the Tax Justice Network. "People on the street have no illusions about how unfair the situation has become."

TUC general secretary Brendan Barber said: "Countries around the world are under intense pressure to reduce their deficits and governments cannot afford to let so much wealth slip past into tax havens.

"Closing down the tax loopholes exploited by multinationals and the super-rich to avoid paying their fair share will reduce the deficit. This way the government can focus on stimulating the economy, rather than squeezing the life out of it with cuts and tax rises for the 99% of people who aren't rich enough to avoid paying their taxes."

Assuming the £13tn mountain of assets earned an average 3% a year for its owners, and governments were able to tax that income at 30%, it would generate a bumper £121bn in revenues – more than rich countries spend on aid to the developing world each year.

Groups such as UK Uncut have focused attention on the paltry tax bills of some highly wealthy individuals, such as Topshop owner Sir Philip Green, with campaigners at one recent protest shouting: "Where did all the money go? He took it off to Monaco!" Much of Green's retail empire is owned by his wife, Tina, who lives in the low-tax principality.

A spokeswoman for UK Uncut said: "People like Philip Green use public services – they need the streets to be cleaned, people need public transport to get to their shops – but they don't want to pay for it."

Leaders of G20 countries have repeatedly pledged to close down tax havens since the financial crisis of 2008, when the secrecy shrouding parts of the banking system was widely seen as exacerbating instability. But many countries still refuse to make details of individuals' financial worth available to the tax authorities in their home countries as a matter of course. Tax Justice Network would like to see this kind of exchange of information become standard practice, to prevent rich individuals playing off one jurisdiction against another.

"The very existence of the global offshore industry, and the tax-free status of the enormous sums invested by their wealthy clients, is predicated on secrecy," said Henry.

Wtf is he doing some dumb shit like that for?  All we need is for Tom to get hurt  Cry  I don't think Mallett would be the answer.

Yes, I'm pretty sure his contract has some clause that says he can't do anything like skydiving or riding a motorcycle.

I agree that sport should have nothing to with politics/opinions.
Many people have problems with folks from other cultures/religions in their society, but I don't. Is my culture 'better' or more interesting than 'theirs'? I don't think so.
Why would you care about those differences? Maybe they think the same about your language/clothes and LOL behind your ass Wink

Nothing to do with better or interesting, people want to be around their own kind.  Why do you think certain ethnic groups all live in certain parts of cities.  In almost every big city there is a Chinatown, a little Italy or Portuguese section.  Now more and more we have areas that are all Hindu or Sikh or Sri Lankan. It's not uncommon to see women in full burkhas where I live. These people all escaped their shithole countries to build a better life and guess what?  They cling to the traditions that made their countries such a mess in the first place such as honor killings.  And if you think for a moment that a caucasian is welcome in their neighbourhood, you are woefully misinformed.
