The Yankees did not consider giving refunds or credits to fans in nonpremium seats because Hal Steinbrenner felt only a small number of top-tier tickets were overpriced.
The view is contradicted by Team Marketing Report’s calculation that nonpremium seat prices rose 76 percent from last year. The Yankees’ philosophy must be this: if sections are sold out — or if they don’t get much camera time — we must have priced the seats correctly.
The Yankees are my favorite franchise in all of sports, but this kinda crap really grinds my gears. Thanks for catering to the rich and pricing out the real fans, assholes.
“Our initial reports on human technology are sketchy at best.
Their armor is composed of synthetic alloys we have yet to reproduce that absorbs our energy based weaponry. Further, their evolutionary paths and planet geology have forced them to be physically resistant to our radiation based weaponry. At best it mildly irritates the skin of weaker individuals.
In addition, their blood is highly toxic and direct contact can cause oxygen poisoning in both younglings and elders.
Their weaponry is propellant based mass driver technology. Our current shield technologies are incapable of repelling the mass, as it is not energy based.
Their vehicles are composed of composite alloys that are uncommon in the sector. It is unlikely that they will be able to produce more of them. However, recent intelligence suggests that they are constructing new vehicles in mass out of local metals.
It is the professional opinion of this operative that human expansion is carefully monitored and their collective city-states appeased for as long as required, until the council is able to properly repel the threat.”
I was innocently looking for a pig picture to photoshop and I landed on a drawing of Porky Pig and I broke out in hives. Because you know what creeps me out? Animated animals who wear shirts, but no pants.
Like Donald Duck, for instance. Donald wears that stupid sailor shirt, BUT NO PANTS. I keep looking for his duck dong. Not because I want to see it but because it’s pretty damn obvious that if Donald is wearing no pants, his dick should swaying around. Do the folks at Disney think we’re that stupid, that we are supposed to believe that ducks have no dicks? Then again, that could be why Donald is so angry all the time.
Say it with me: If you wear a top, you have to wear pants. It’s got to be all or nothing. Once you put one piece of clothing on, you become partially humanized. That means your genitals should not be showing. Should not even be hinted at showing. Or even showing the place where the genitals would go if kid’s cartoons had genitals. You can’t see Donald or Porky’s package, but you know it’s there. So don’t pretend like it’s not.
This is why I’ve always had a problem with both Donald Duck and Porky Pig, but not Bugs Bunny. Donald wears a ridiculous sailor suit. Sans pants. Porky wears a jacket and tie, but no shirt or pants. Sometimes he even wears a hat. But still no pants. Daisy, that hobag, walks around wearing a shirt and big ass bow, but no pants or skirt. Easy access for Donald, maybe? Slut. Wally Gator wears a freaking collar. No pants. A collar! WHY? Maybe he’s got some BSDM thing going on. See, Magilla Gorilla not only wore pants, but suspenders as well, so when he was chasing that little girl around like a funny uncle, his shorts didn’t fall down and reveal his monkey meat. I thank Hana Barbera for that. Wile E. Coyote? Completely unclothed, like a good animal should be. And Bugs, too. He wears nothing. Well, unless he’s in drag. But even then he has the sense to cover up his privates. But wearing nothing is fine, because that says to me that he is a rabbit. Rabbits generally don’t wear clothes. His nakedness is natural. But slap a hat or necktie on him and you’ve got to have pants.
Do you see what I’m saying here? If you give a cartoon animal a human trait, such as wearing chaps, YOU HAVE GOT TO COVER THEIR HOO-HAS AND WEENIES! Even if you can’t see the private parts, you know they are there, hidden under the fur or reptile skin or whatever. The cartoonists are stating the obvious by NOT stating the obvious. Why go halfway? Why dress a pig or a duck in half an outfit? It’s only going to call attention the fact that the other half strong isn’t dressed. So either dress them up all the way or draw some genitals on them.
Today, I was taking the subway to work when I saw a really hot girl. Noticing that she, like me, had a Dunkin Donut’s coffee, I tried to start a conversation by saying, “Is that Double D’s you have there?” She didn’t pick up that I was talking about the Coffee. FML
There was No free repair even though it was their attempts at cutting costs and selling a lower quality, rushed product to the consumer that caused it.
Couldn’t pay for the repair in the UK without a credit card. Ended up buying a new one
All sorts of fucking up with tranferring data
Finally make E74 free repair
Xbox.com support possibly the worse I hav ever used
Phone system illogical, annoying as fuck and when it isn;t broken the muppet on the other end is useless.
The first attempt to email me a shipping lable just failed. How the fuck did Microsoft manage to fail at that?
Second attempt worked, but UPS didn’t turn up on either of the days they were ment to.
Holey crap, what a lot of fail. But, Ms wont fix their shit because they don’t seem to notice the sinking consumr confidence. Fuck you Microsoft. Stop counting the money you steal from children and sort your fucking shit out.
Bone is built of two basic components: flexible fibers of collagen and brittle chains of the calcium-rich mineral hydroxyapatite. But those relatively simple ingredients, the springy and the salty, are woven together into such a complex cat’s cradle of interdigitating layers that the result is an engineering masterpiece of tensile, compressive and elastic strength. “We only wish we could mimic it,” Dr. Ritchie said.
I’ve got to say, I’m getting a little tired of this kind of us-versus-the-newcomers mentality among the “hardcore” gaming set. Yes, more people are playing games now, but this is not a bad thing! In fact, it’s been vital to making the industry as exciting and varied and downright enjoyable as it is today.
You know why EA can afford to invest in new IP like Brütal Legend, Mirror’s Edge, and Dead Space? Because they sell five million copies of Madden every year. You know those so-called “casual” gamers, the people you think are encroaching upon your beloved pastime? Well, you might want to stop hating on them so much, since they’re helping to subsidize your “hardcore” games.
Here’s a little gem for you…I found this on the Wayback Machine today. This was probably the 3rd rebuild I did on this site, so it isn’t the very original design. I was probably about 11-12 years old when I did this. Check out some of the “reviews” and “preivews” wow I was such a little dork back then!
Oh my god — I literally forgot about guestbooks for the past decade until right now! Amazing.
Under my administration, the days of science taking a back seat to ideology are over. Our progress as a nation – and our values as a nation – are rooted in free and open inquiry. To undermine scientific integrity is to undermine our democracy.
That is why I have charged the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy with leading a new effort to ensure that federal policies are based on the best and most unbiased scientific information. I want to be sure that facts are driving scientific decisions – and not the other way around.
