billionaire hedge funders.

I think they will be the market based losers in this scenario.

I tried to think about which side I would put my own money on. (1) I don't think these dudes below are going to want to back down at all - especially after already going in for a couple billion. (2) This is what they do. (3) They have billions more at their disposal.

Steve Cohen's Point 72, Ken Griffin's Citadel, and other partners are plowing a total of $2.75 billion into Melvin Capital, the hedge funds said on Monday. They will receive non-controlling revenue shares in Melvin in return for their money.



He seemed sad delivering that news. Hilarious they are blaming an online forum for bullying a hedge fund. Its almost like it isn't fair for one side to have a platform to try and pump their investments.  :rolleyes:

It is quite delicious and hilarious IMO. I don't play any of these games but I just find the whole situation really, really funny. Getting owned at their own game and then crying about it.

I think his last 3 months in office have proved he is not some 4d chess playing anything, he only has an id and that's it. What he does have going for him as far as he knows or cares is nearly a 90% approval rating that was constant within the repub party, and overall knows he can do damn near anything and always have like 37-39% of the country no matter what. He just wants that and the adoration of it.

Any political genius thoughts come from the reaction of cucked and cowed people inside the repub party who don't want to constantly lose. This is the same thing that allowed them to keep him going in 2016, what forced them to hitch themselves/purge moderates in 2018, and what doomed them in 2020. They decided to do that, trump just decided to never change course. 

Sure, and it obv goes both ways, the turtle ain't exactly the picture of health

Prairie village  :emawkid:

Prairie Village, wow. Always assumed it would be Gardner

Gardner is an odd choice but ok. I would assumed Westwood/Westwood Hills or Roeland Park. Gardner seems too country for this.

PV weirdly doesn't seem that odd, maybe when I moved to the KC area 9 years ago but the turnover in PV to the youths has been pretty big since then.

I guess they were expecting that yes, we want those olympics, and yes, duh, the opposing party's primary is definitely on our lord and god Biden's list of things to accomplish right now. JFC

Wonder if we could lure the McCaffrey kid from Nebraska in?

Would assume he went to hs in Denver? Possibly a Rubes connection?

Sounds like where he wants to go or who will want him will be determined by his future position. (QB or WR)

Have a friend who is a nubbs fan, so watched a fair amount this last year of him, WR should be the only position allowed for him. He's just not going to be a QB. Even the nubbs fan wanted him to either be WR or a RB, not a QB.

This is going to be like Maebe trying to emancipate herself from Tobias and Lindsay but instead of being funny and awkward this is bad, sad, serious, and awkward

Side track: is there a bigger difference in announcer styles than buck/Aikman and nantz/Romo? So blessed we play primarily on CBS #blessed

Night and rough ridin' day. I sort of "get" the buck hate but he doesn't honestly bother me that much compared to Aikmen, I find Troy just absolutely insufferable. Nantz and Romo are great. Romo was a little off his normal game imo last night but he fits the color commentary so damn well. I honestly wish though it was Harlan/Romo, that would be amazing. Nantz is perfectly fine I just think Harlan brings a different energy level to a game.

K-State fans: The 2010 Elite 8 run was so magical. Average seeding we beat was an impressive 9.333!

Also K-State fans: The 2018 Elite 8 run was so flukey. Average seeding we beat was an embarrassing 9.666!

This is a very dumb take

The bottom line is if we're being honest the only difference between those two teams was the guy on the sideline.

Also a very dumb take

29-8 (11-5 2nd), 2 seed, 7 final AP, 6 kenpom
25-12 (10-8 4th), 9 seed, unranked, 42 kenpom

You don't think I knew the accomplishments of those teams when I posted that? When taken into historical context those teams will be looked like the same damn team.
For the record the '19 team, with the exact same players as the '18 team, was the best team we've had since the '88 team.

Historical context?  Who cares!  We’re kstate fans talking recent kstate hoops that we all experienced together.  Most of us like 2010 more than the 2018 because they were a much better team.  Period.  But that’s not to say we didn’t enjoy the hell out of that 2018 run as well.

If you want to say 2019 isn’t appreciated enough because of oscar, that’s an argument I can agree with.

But the historical context was the point of what I was saying when I stated that those teams were the same.

God, this conversation is gonna cause me to shine a bright light on a team I liked a lot, but looking back I'm not sure that team was as fun. Honestly, they disappointed us in big moments, more than once. Lost to assy Ole Miss in the Paradise Jam, lost to KU three damn times including in the Big 12 tournament championship, and they beat the holy eff out of us in the piss barn, that embarrassing loss to flood aggie on Senior day that we thought might have cost us Oklahoma City, and of course going out the way we did against Butler. In fact if they didn't get me an incredible weekend with my gE buds in Oklahoma City, it might have been the most disappointing team of our lifetime. That team definitely gets credit in retrospect that they probably didn't earn. That was a classic frank team, some great times marked by frustrating bullshit.

The '11 team was much more fun for me. The Sports Illustrated cover, The CBE, the Valentine's Day massacre, Frankuary, that fat Utah State fan crying in the stands, wild bill? Pullen breaking the scoring record. If not for bitch ass Colorado that would have been the goat team.

Colorado was absolutely infuriating that year. But that to me makes them not even close to all timing it because losing to them 3 times is a bigger head scratcher than losing to ku 3 times.

For the most part I agree, I think 2010 gets so much play cause of Xavier game in the S16 which was an all time game, out Jimmer Fredetteing Jimmer in OKC right after Farokamenish daggered ku, and beating #1 Texas. Losing to ku 3 times was practically ridiculous and that iowa state loss, at home, on senior day, was damn near unforgivable. Def a lot of bad with the good.

Nothing like being sacrificed upon the alter of blog freedom 

Who made this argument? Kat Kad didn't, rusty didn't, I didn't, I'm certain that isn't the point dal9 was making.

then what were your points?

Mine? Thought it was fairly obvious and plainly stated. It's stupid to associate anarchists with any part of the political left, because they are by definition apolitical. The far political left doesn't want government abolished, in fact they/we/whomever the far political left is want the opposite of abolishing government.

Same thing with attempts to the fascists to the political right. Fascists don't believe in government, the far political right, at least they used to believe in a limited government role, but still want a government, fascists don't.
Again, we're running into the problem with the singular right/left paradigm, but I think fascists believe in government as much more or more than any other ideology believes in government.

given the name comes from fasces, which represented a consuls authority in ancient Rome, you bet their ass they believe in government, just a very specific version of it.

This is not specific to mir or dq, but if you want to know what a fasces is, there are two of them helpfully on the US Senate seal

I don't usually watch NFL football because it sucks, but by watching this game I can see why targeting is an ongoing issue for college players.

An incredibly Midwestern/Southern thing is thinking college sports are better than pro.

Ehh, in general for me it's not so much "better" as it is "more fun and more emotional investment."

Only gun I need is the one swinging between my legs.

FTR, I always thought taxing the ever living crap outta ammo like Chris Rock suggested was a great way to have gun control w/o controlling guns. I would though wave said tax for ammo bought and discharged at licensed gun ranges.

It is another maga hallmark.  Like ball tazing

Add in PTO gripes and you got a trifecta

I mean Spicey led them previous admin out the gates, and they came out swinging.

I also remember some of the softballs they gave trump during the early days of the pandemic about if the president had any advice to give the America people and he pivoted straight into attacking the reporter, so I mean, not all softballs are created equal I guess

Think about all these capitol raiding chuds currently in jail or on the run whose king just left office without pardoning them.

They still would gargle his balls if given the chance. trump never gave a crap about them and never will.

I would like for them to settle whether we are a socialist nation or a communist nation now, I'm so confused.

I'd like to think they can provide clarity but they won't

Is Biden pro farmer socialism or are our ag brothers in a pinch now?

Everyone is pro-farmer socialism.
Yeah, no president or congress has ever not made it rain on them

Bingo, and most farmers bitch at others about socialism, it's my favorite thing about them tbh.

i think it would take trump and the dude who has been Q holding a joint press conference swearing on their life that there was never any truth to any of it to reign most of them back into normal rational thinking. you'd still have 30% think that the press conference was part of it and it would keep going.

That's a low number but agreed that'd get a good chunk of them to forget it. Honestly as time goes on they'll eat their own on this and either people will quit for now being on the outs or become even more racialized on being in the ends. Either way trump not being prez means this group will continue to dwindle, though slowly

Yes, New Radicals belongs in the awesome thread.

The whole issue over the peloton is kinda lol to me though

I saw the Peloton thing on the news and how they are workshopping ideas on how to do this while he's president. A couple possibilities are that he sets up the bike in an area of the white house that can't be compromised, this sounds like a bathroom or some crap. They also may have him change his log in credentials every month to make it more difficult to track who he is.

Just build a room that is completely non descript inside the WH so all you can see if him and like white walls, all blank. Will be boring for whoever hacks it.
