What Axis powers does Elon support? I donít even know what he invented. Just that he is an inventor - inventing and whatnot.

The bubble popping is the only thing i see curbing the growth of this industry and i don't think it'll be soon. They put EVO on espn a couple times and the viewership was huge. Things like Twitchcon and GDQ and AGDE are only getting bigger

Soccer fans hate the diving. Neymar's become a punchline even in his native land. It's also technically illegal under the laws of the game. One of the things fans got pissed about this World Cup was not enough referees throwing up a yellow card to punish divers.

On the other hand, it's a very tiny % of players who do it, and - not coincidentally - it's the smaller, faster players who tend to do it the most. Neymar may be the most notorious diver, but he's also the player who legit gets the most shit kicked out of him in any given game. Ultimately it starts as a defence mechanism for the smaller, quicker, more entertaining players to try and get more protection from the referee against the bigger, slower defenders who often can't stop the superstars legitimately so they stick a boot in. Then some take it too far.

Solution: Weight divisions in soccer.

i don't know if it's the name that's throwing us, but it is funny that in futbol they dive and flop like assholes but in American football it's the opposite.

I much prefer watching the women's football (soccer) over the men's. There's a lot more passion in it and you never see them flopping. Plus, I can see my team play for £5! I watched a game at my mum's and the semi final because everyone was losing their shit about it "coming home" but wasn't too bothered other than that. I can't wait for the women's world cup next year though!

Even Neymar's own peeps consider his antics a joke. In Brazil there are commercials saying their prices have "Neymared".

And this is even though the dude won them the Olympic gold medal and had the shit kicked out of him so bad during the 2014 World Cup his spine literally snapped in half. Nobody is more merciless with their piss-taking than futbol fans. They make Mike Lawrence seem like Mary Poppins.

I do put it on the people starting shit to go watch the movie, if you have all the opinions and tweets that leads to the change of casting you need to support the movie not for this film, but so the next film can get made. Hollywood is a business, if you want to see these stories with casting that you deem appropriate you need to show up and make the film profitable.

I 100% agree with the study that being in hot weather makes you temporarily more dumb. I work in home care with older adults and they are forever cold, so no matter how hot it is, the A/c will be off and they will be bundled up. I have literally forgotten words mid-sentence because my brain just wasnít able to process things due to the 90-100 degree heat.

The Thai boys- I wondered too why they were there. On a Dateline episode, they talked about how it was common for them to go to the cave after practice and they had been like 15 tines. The coach didnít know about it, which was odd. I also thought it odd that no one checked the weather that day for rain, especially since it was during the rainy season. I think the assistant coach has suffered a lot though, based on what people who know him said about his character. He did manage to help keep all of the kids alive and was the weakest because he didnít eat the food they had available. Sounds like poor planning and he was lucky that none of the kids died.

Can confirm. Sweating in Texas right now. Sometimes I see people sitting out eating lunch in the sun and all I can think is WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT???

Iím running a job right now, giant house under construction, probably 20 people working, itís about 100į outside. The house has AC but the homeowners have asked us not to turn it on. IN effing SANE. Someone can afford a multi bazillion dollar house but refuses to pay for even a moderate amount of comfort for the people building it.
