If this kind of thing keeps going on, women's basketball will never achieve equality with our nation's favorite sports such as NFL football or NHL hockey.

I tried to open a women's basketball themed restaurant but Royal Banks of Missouri refused to extend me a loang told me not to even go to other banks would be wasting their valuable time of day.

He probably set the Techsters back half a decade because of his antics looks like student-athletes who signed their letters of intent now want nothing to do with said program.

I havent heard anything since the news broke. Is the rumor true that he actually impregnated a player?

There's some kind of punk rock concert going on in my neighborhood no I don't mean in a building I mean like in the open air. The singer sounds like he's upset about the issues of the day or something I wonder if he's singing about how Tyler Summitt let down the Techsters and women's basketball generally?

i've always been sort of fascinated by the kind of person who aspires to open a restaurant/bar. 

So it's cool to lie on the menu? Or if I say it's lobster is its half lobster and half something else?

to be clear i wasn't saying that. i don't think lying is all that cool in any case.

 

what i was saying is that the name of the game is to make a patron feel a certain way, rather than to actually deliver a specific product.

 

now you've got me thinking about it it's actually super unfortunate that the idea of artisanal quality is in vogue right now, every two-bit dipshit who tries to make a buck using "organic" "local" etc as an aesthetic instead of an actual technical achievement is gonna add up to a situation where the words stop meaning anything at all. 

 

think about this: is it really possible in this day and age to have the sheer volume of "artisanal" goods that are apparently out there? 

 

might be we're at "peak authentic"... what's next?

That was brought up in the article. Ex - Apparently a lot of people were claiming to use this one guys pork (raised sustainably, low carbon footprint, etc etc), and he said he doesn't even raise enough pigs for all of the people who claim to purchase from him to actually have done it. So the restaurant gets to charge a premium, and then it's just pure profit.

One time I failed to chew a piece of chicken sufficiently and it got stuck halfway down my esophagus. I had to go to the ER to have it Roto-rootered out. That was fun.

It was more than two inches down, so that wouldn't have worked at all.
