  • How In Hell is Twitter Worth 1 Billion?

    Twitter recently took a $100 million investment, valuing the company at $1 billion. Twitter makes no money and has yet to figure out any kind of business model. And even if it does, it’s definitely not going to have revenue worthy of a $1 billion valuation anytime soon. I’d argue Twitter is another online fad […]

  • IRS Underreported Income Scam

    Just a heads up that there are fraudulent IRS emails going around claiming you’ve underreported your income and asks you to click a link. These are fake and the IRS would never email you for something like this. It’s kind of clever that I started getting these emails around right around when the third Estimated […]

  • 9.12 DC Tea Party – Widespread Ignorance

    Unbelievable. For every smart person, there’s like 3 dumb, ignorant people in this country. I feel like they need to be segregated or something. It’s really astounding. Freedom, huh? Only in this country are people like this allowed to gather, protest, and spout this kind of BS. I say we have plenty of freedom.

  • Del Potro – 2009 US Open Champ

    Well Roger, you can’t win them all. Del Potro was the better player tonight and deserves his first grand slam title. Roger went away in that 5th set, similar to what happened in Australia. I get the feeling he was slowing down and getting tired. I guess you just can’t fight time no matter how […]

  • I Present… Roger Federer

    His amazing between-the-legs (tweener) shot to set up match point against Novak Djokovic in the 2009 US Open semis. It’s one thing to even get this trick shot over the net, it’s a whole other thing to hit a passing shot winner against someone at net. I jumped off my couch when I saw this. […]

  • The WTA Tour Sucks

    Seriously, women’s tennis is in a poor state right now. Everyone’s pretty much on an even keel. On any given day, anyone can win. That’s why you got retired players coming back or thinking about coming back. And you have teens like Melanie Oudin taking out top seeds. And geezus, don’t get me started on […]

  • If There’s No Public Plan…

    Then the supposed healthcare “reform” has already failed. Obama’s healthcare reform is about 2 things – cutting both short and long term costs and expanding coverage to those who don’t have health insurance. Cutting costs should be a normal thing, it shouldn’t be called reform when you try to make things more efficient and operate […]
