    A Windy City thin crust to try is Aurelio’s. Extra sauce.

    Bring your umbrella.

    Today I received emails from four different companies that positively know I have “opted out” from receiving any and all emails. Bet I’m not alone.

      Opting out just confirms that they have a live address for you. Like putting your number on the Do Not Call list which gets you more robocalls.

    seems that the body fights disease with white cells (some thing we all knew probably). but did you know that the retains cellular memory of the diseases it has fought before? so that if a related pathogen were to show up, the body would try fight the pathogen it ‘remembered’? its probably why the flu vaccine doesnt always work, because the body remembers the pathogen that the vaccine ’emulated’ and the white cells are triggered to fight the vaccines pathogens.

    you mean that companies will ….lie about their earnings? and that why they basically stopped using GAAP? and that executives have all sorts of incentives to do so? because their own incomes are tied to the stock prices? who knew

      ​”…Donald Trump voters are sweeping the nation. They’re everywhere on cable news, often explaining to cameras why nothing The Donald says – no matter how outrageous or divergent from established facts – will change their view that he’s the guy needed to shake up Washington’s political culture…”​

      If you leave out the assumption that the World’s on Fire​ their argument falls to the ground. So they assume it! ROFL!
