    admin got a reaction from Isabella in Vancouver Mall, Vancouver, WA 2021   
    It wasn't "dead" like some malls out there.... I went in for Visionworks..... but I did notice the food court and theatre's appeared dead compared to previous decades.
    Seeing the demise of malls in general causes a certain sadness considering how important a part of everyday life it was back in the 80's and 90's

    admin got a reaction from JW Insider in The First Edition Of Monopoly (1906)   
    Monopoly's first creator is almost impossible to know because it was informally played by many people with their own boards and rules, until a lady patented it under "The Landlord's Game". But later on Parker Bros claimed it as their own and began suing anyone else who had any resemblance to the game, which everyone knew wasn't true. There were a few people who stood against them, but many gave in to the lawsuits and quit. Ultimately, if I remember correctly, the courts ruled that The Landlord's Game was the original, but Parkers had become a powerhouse at that point and dominated the competition, becoming the sole owner of the game you know today.
    tldr: Monopoly became a monopoly

    Armando Manzanero: muere el cantautor mexicano por covid-19
    El cantautor mexicano Armando Manzanero falleció este lunes a los 85 años, pocos días después de haber sido hospitalizado en Ciudad de México tras contraer coronavirus.
    Manzanero deja tras de sí un legado inolvidable en la historia de la música en español, un sinfín de discos vendidos e innumerables reconocimientos, como el Premio Grammy honorífico en 2014.
    El autor de clásicos de la balada romántica latinoamericana, como "Somos novios", "Voy a apagar la luz", "Contigo aprendí", "Esta tarde vi llover" y "No", fue hospitalizado la semana pasada en Ciudad de México tras dar positivo en covid-19 e intubado unos días después.
    "Con mucho dolor lamento la muerte del maestro Armando Manzanero, uno de los más grandes compositores de México, sus canciones son parte definitiva de la educación sentimental de los mexicanos", escribió en Twitter la secretaria de Cultura de México, Alejandra Frausto.

    admin got a reaction from Srecko Sostar in A Bigger Crisis Is On The Horizon, And It Will Last For Decades   
    As the news talks about enforcing mandatory lockdowns, and handing out money to citizens… There has been a problem that has been rapidly expanding in the background of all of this news. …
    And It is a problem that the world has never really seen before. In fact… it might create a crisis that won’t just be felt in the next week, the next month, or even the next year... but it might be felt for several decades to come…
    During World War 2, Britain was in the thick of war against the axis powers. However, Britain ran into a roadblock…they were quickly running out of money. So, they began looking to borrow money from both their own future taxpayers, as well as the United States & Canada. In 1941 Britain began accepting loans and taking on debt to fund the war… and by 1945 Britain had taken on nearly $10 Billion dollars worth of debt from its creditors. At this point in time, Britains debt to GDP ratio was a whopping 200% meaning that the country had twice as much debt, as its entire market value of all its goods and services it produces over an entire year. And just some perspective for you, is that the World Bank states that once a country reaches above 77% debt to GDP ratio, its economy will begin to slow down from such a large portion of its revenue going towards paying down its debt. Anyways, after the war ended, Britain had amassed a debt that was so large, that they couldn’t pay it back in 1 year, 5 years, 10 years, or even 20 years.
    On December 29, 2006, Britain made its last repayment on its World War 2 debt to The United States and Canada. This means that British taxpayers from 1945, up until 2006 had a small portion of their tax bill every year, go towards the Debt that the country accumulated in the 1940’s. And for about a decade after the war, Britains economy was drastically hindered, in part due to their outstanding debt that they incurred. However, their economy eventually recovered thanks to an influx of taxpayers, called the baby boomers, as well as some economic reforms and infrastructure investments. But a lot of the times when a country accrues as much debt as britain did, they are not so lucky.
    In 2001 Argentina’s debt to GDP ratio reached a high of 166%, which caused the country to default on over $100 Billion dollars worth of debt. This default made capital move out of the country, and soon the nation saw millions of people enter poverty while unemployment reached a high of 19%. And to this day, Argentina hasn’t fully recovered from its debt crisis that it went through nearly 20 years ago. And similar stories can be said for Greece in 2012, Zimbabwe in 2006, Venezuala in 2017, and Russia in 1998. The point I am trying to make here is that even though debt can be a good thing to take on… in order to solve today’s serious problems…it will almost always have serious long-term consequences that could last for years or even decades.
    So now, lets bring this back to the United States. So whether you know it or not, America essentially runs on debt. Historically, America’s economy has been so big, and has grown so fast, that taking out tens of billions of debt here or there hasn’t really been much of a big deal because it was such a small percentage of the countries overall Economy. For example In 2006, The United States had a relatively healthy Debt to GDP ratio of about 60%. But then…the financial crisis hit. During the financial crisis, the United states began scrambling for ways to pump money back into the economy… so it began taking out hundreds of billions of dollars worth of debt. And some people might think that The United States, along with every other country that took out debt to get through the financial crisis, has paid off some of their debt since 2008. But actually, the opposite of that is true.
    You see, since the financial crisis, many developed countries throughout the world have been accruing more and more debt every year, while economic growth has slowed. This means that many countries may actually find it more difficult to pay off their debt now, than they did during the financial crisis.

    admin got a reaction from Srecko Sostar in 50 Dollars   
    Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year, and every year Morris would say, "Esther, I'd like to ride in that helicopter".    Esther always replied, "I know Morris, but that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars".    One year Esther and Morris went to the fair, and Morris said, "Esther, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance."    Esther replied, "Morris that helicopter is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars".   The pilot overheard the couple and said, "Folks I'll make you a deal. I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say a word I won't charge you! But if you say one word, it's 50 dollars."   Morris and Esther agreed and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word. When they landed, the pilot   turned to Morris and said, "By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn't. I'm impressed!"   Morris replied, "Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Esther fell out, but you know -- 50 dollars is 50 dollars".

    It doesn't hurt to take a hard look at yourself from time to time, and this should help get you started.

    During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the director what the criterion was that defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

    "Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."

    "Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

    "No," said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a room with or without a view?"

    A college pizza delivery boy arrived at the house of Mr.Smith. He delivered the pizza to his trailer. After giving it to him, Mr. Smith asked: "What is the usual tip?"

    "Well," replied the youth, "this is my first trip here, but the other guys say if I get a quarter out of you, I'll be doing great." 

    "Is that so?" snorted Mr. Smith. "Well, just to show them how wrong they are, here's five dollars."

    "Thanks," replied the youth, "I'll put this in my school fund."

    "What are you studying in school?" asked Larry.

    The lad smiled and said: "Applied psychology."

    I would agree with that, or just simply throw the man in jail.  Too much fraud in this election, and he magically turned all previous presidential election trends upside down.  I'd have to look them all up, but Mark Levin had a guy on his show last night, Life, Liberty and Levin that listed quite a few of them.  There are others I have heard too.
