    I know several friends who are doctors. Not one of them is financially rich yet, and we're talking about people anywhere from 45-55. Many of them are still paying off massive school loan debt; all of them pay lots of money for malpractice insurance (even though none of them have ever been found...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    While I'm not sure I'd enjoy riding such a relatively slow form of transportation over that distance, one thing that works in favor of such a plan is that such a thing could be constructed without much, if any, disruption of the current system, at least compared to going to other places in the...

    That may be true of Katie Blackburn's intention (she pretty much runs the team now), but I'm not sure that'll happen. a) Though the Bungles suck, there's a big geographic area that would completely lose interest in the NFL if that franchise left (every late summer Bungles fans can always say...

    Agreed with the bolded. Although it is pretty neat to use Apple Pay, or use a Magicband to charge back to your resort room via NFC with a MB reader, I'm actually personally somewhat paranoid of using these unless there is no other choice, although when I've used it I have not had any problems...

    News New Gondola Transportation - Disney Skyliner - Every Possible What If ....? Has Been Discussed.

    The western side expansion sounds logical, and is pretty similar to what I've thought they might do. However, I'm puzzled by the eastern expansion idea. The article states that it would connect Typhoon Lagoon with Disney Springs. Unless I'm reading it wrong, it mentioned no resorts on this...

    How stupid (of Germany). NFC isn't just an Apple thing, and it works quite well for a bunch of different vendors and customers (including Disney), so there's no need to try to force a company to divulge its own proprietary flavor of it just to be able to use NFC. German leaders must not realize...

    Jeff Bezos is apparently wanting to buy an NFL team. Jeff, meet the 0-9 Cincinnati Bengals. Heck, officially name them the Bungles for all I care, but wrest that franchise from Mike Brown's grip.

    State worker pensions were underfunded for years prior to him becoming governor, and the money that was supposed to go to that was raided by the governor-elect's father, 2-term governor Steve Beshear, during his 8 years in office prior to Bevin. He and the general assembly punted on that issue...

    To the surprise of no one, Bevin finally concedes the Kentucky governor's race after the recanvass didn't change a single vote (although I'm still glad it was done if only to fully affirm citizens' confidence in our voting system)...

    It wasn't a musical, but there was a pretty good movie (Operation Finale) made about Eichmann's capture in Buenos Aires in 1960 and the unbelievable steps the Mossad agents had to go through to get him out of the country. It seemed to match pretty closely with some documentary shows I've seen...

    The trouble with telling on a bully to adults is due to multiple factors. a) Probably any punishment the bully faces (probably detention and/or a call to bad parents) is nothing new to him/her, so it's ineffective for that reason. b) Separating bullies from victims only works during active class...

    Childhood bullying is one of the most enduring problems in society. a) Reporting it to adults is often ineffective and just makes the victim more of a future target to more bullies, b) if there is a large size difference, or the bully is simply more physical than the victim, or it's a group...

    People will lose their minds next year when Trump throws out first pitches at baseball games in an election year. LOL

    I can’t believe Trump would be so low as to go to a sporting event to make himself seen by millions. That’s never happened before. What will he stoop to next?
