    What I think Rubes is trying to say is, "bacon is awesome."

    Bacon is the chief cause of Americans having parasites.
    It's not reported widely because folks are unaware they are host to one of the worst parasites of history.
    The parasite goes straight to your brain where it eats a little bit to make its home.
    It then proceeds to manipulate your mind into doing the things that create the environment the parasite wants for thriving.
    You see what pigs do?
    Parasites determine behavior in a lot of ways.
    This one makes you act like a porker over time.
    Deranges the mind if you have a large enough legion of parasites in you.

    "A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. When the herd is hunted, the slow and weak at the back are killed first. The speed and health of the herd keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.
    "In the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as its slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. Naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first.
    "In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers."

    Curious now, about the buffalo herd thing.
    It makes sense that the herd is kept stronger by cullling the weak and slowest by hunting....what I'm asking about: what or who is the hunter? Wolves? I can't conceive of anything else in NA capable of taking one down, and only in a pack situation.
    Unless it is African buffalo you speak of, then we are into lion/cheetah as predators.
    Probably pertains only to African species...so , I wonder how the American bison maintained the same status...the original herd was from southern Canada, south to Texas. And a couple of states wide, estimated at 50 million originally.
    Must have had something going for it; and it was that large before the Indian became equestrian hunters.

    Also; the beer thing...it is additionally true that women become increasingly more attractive the more beer one consumed. Odd.
    Strange, but true.

    For those of you watching the Olympics...what is the story with Bob Costas? I mean wearing glasses is no big thing. But if you look underneath his lenses, he's got one giant eye (right, I think), and one regular eye. Or one regular eye, and one small eye, IDK which. WTF is that? Anybody know?

    Is it true that Ryu is lighter now so he can make it over the fence in AZ for the pool?
    Is it true that Dee Gordon is pumped up so he can help him over if he Kim chee's it back to his previous portly form?
    Has anyone ever seen Saun White and Orel Hershiser in the same place at the same time ?
    They are the same person, no doubt...well played , Orel....or Saun.

    lol :rofl:

    By Amanda Bell | Yahoo Movies – 3 hours ago​

    Well, here's one way to bring out the fury in Nick Fury.​

    Samuel L. Jackson appeared on Los Angeles' KTLA Monday morning to promote his turn in the "RoboCop" remake, and while he may have been poised to simply hype a film about a part-machine man of the law, he ended up giving one reporter a very tough lesson on celebrity confusion.​

    News anchor Sam Rubin, while questioning Jackson on the sci-fi action pic and his most recent return to the Marvel Universe for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," asked Jackson about any feedback he'd received for his work on "that Super Bowl commercial."​

    Problem was, Sam Jackson did not appear in the Super Bowl commercial Rubin was referring to.​


    While Jackson did appear in a "Captain America 2" teaser and a "Robocop" spot that aired during the game, Rubin was instead speaking of the Kia car commercial starring Laurence Fishburne in homage to his "Matrix Trilogy" character, Morpheus.​

    Jackson, needless to say, was not enthused by the flub.​

    "What Super Bowl commercial?" he demanded.​

    Once the reporter realized his error and fessed to his major mistake, Jackson continued, "See? You're as crazy as the people on Twitter. I'm not Laurence Fishburne.​

    "We don't all look alike," Jackson added. "We may be all black and famous, but we all don't look alike."​

    Jackson's ire over the reporting misstep didn't end there, either.​

    "You're the entertainment reporter" he prodded, "and you don't know the difference between me and Laurence Fishburne?"​

    Over another apology by Rubin, Jackson chided, "That must be a very short line for your job."​

    Jackson wasn't willing to have the conversation steered back to the cinematic subject at hand, either. Rubin, after jovially conceding that his broadcasting seat would likely be easy to fill, tried to talk about "RoboCop," but Jackson put the kibosh on that.​

    "Oh hell no," he insisted. "Really? Really? ... I'm the other guy, the other guy, the other one. 'What's in your wallet?'"​

    Jackson, alluding to his work as a spokesman for Capital One's Quicksilver credit card campaign, went on to differentiate himself from others he described as fellow "black guy doing commercials."

    "I'm the 'What's in your wallet?' black guy. [Laurence] is the car black guy. Morgan Freeman is the other credit card black guy," he said.​

    "You only hear his voice, though, so you probably won't confuse him with Laurence Fishburne. There's a heavyweight black guy that's like putting cash down in the seats at a baseball stadium, but he's also the black guy that turns off the house, the water, and the lights when his kid tells him the house is cool. I'm not that guy either."​

    "And I've actually never done a McDonald's or Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial," he added. "I know that's surprising."​

    Having successfully made his point, Jackson then allowed the subject of his film to creep back into the exchange, saying, "I'm the only black guy in 'RoboCop' that's not a criminal, other than Michael K. White" before allowing the reporter to move on to substantial dialogue about the picture.​

    "I loved 'RoboCop,'" Jackson said of the franchise which began with 1987's cult-classic Paul Verhoeven version starring Peter Weller and Nancy Allen. "When it came out, it was like crazy innovative because it was making fun of the government, it was sarcastic, it was violent."​

    Not one to let the taunting go completely, Jackson soon went on to warn Rubin not to confuse his fellow "RoboCop" castmates with "those other white actors out there."​

    Following the interview, Rubin apologized for his mistake and called his "shelacking well-deserved" given such "a very amateur mistake."​

    "RoboCop," which also stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, and Jay Baruchel, hits theaters on Wednesday.​

    So no one cares about the gay dude in the nfl draft?

    You're all fucking homophobes. I hope all you fags get taint raped by a Norwegian midget with a lisp wearing stilts.

    Sorry ESPN thought that should matter my bad.
