  2. Sometimes they use accomplices to place bids in an attempt to make the item seem authentic and of interest to others.

    The Rest in Peace Thread...people are just dying to get mentioned here.

    2018 NFL THREAD

    Yep. When that Colt defender, down 24-7 late in the third quarter, took a 15 yard penalty for the sake of gyrating like a stripper in front of the referee the announcers should have showered him with criticism for being so undisciplined. instead, they were practically mute.

    The Rest in Peace Thread

    Mel Stottlemyre. He fought his illness LIKE A BOSS.Stottlemyre was first diagnosed with multiple myeloma, for which there is no cure, in the spring of 1999, his third season as Torre’s pitching coach. He underwent an experimental treatment for the disease that included a stem-cell transplant, four months of chemotherapy, and as many as 24 pills a day, after which doctors told him there was still no way of knowing if or when the disease would come back.Long after he retired from baseball, he nevertheless continued to fight the dreaded disease, out-living the doctors’ most optimistic prognostications. On Oldtimers Day, June 20, 2015, after getting his doctors’ permissions, he made the cross-country trip to Yankee Stadium where the Yankees bestowed a surprise honor on him – a plaque in Monument Park. In an emotional, heart-rending speech reminiscent of the doomed Lou Gehrig’s address to a pack-house Stadium crowd some 77 years earlier, Stottlemyre provided one of the great moments in the team’s storied tradition.“Today in this Stadium, there is no one that’s happier to be on this field than myself,” he said, choking up. “This is such a shock to me because the era I played in is an era where, for the most part, the Yankees have tried over the years, I think, somewhat to forget a little bit...If I never get to come to another Oldtimers Day, I will take these memories and I’ll start another baseball club, coaching up there, whenever they need me.”
  7. RS is a shell of what it used to be in the 1970s. I stopped buying it after they put the Boston Marathon bomber on the front cover as if he was Jim Morrison or something.

    2018 NFL THREAD

    SPOILER ALERT: Colts vs Chiefs So the Colts are down 24-7 late in the third but finally stopped the Chiefs on a fourth down. However, they took a 15 yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct immediately after the play when one of the Colts defensemen gyrated like a stripper in front of the referee. Hope the 15 yard penalty was worth it -- idiot!

    The Cigar Wrappers "Illegal Immgrant Song"

    This thread will undoubtedly be pulled or locked because of the overtly political nature of the topic. That said, the song was reworked and then released under the Fair Use Doctrine. Robert Plant is essentially pro-refugee and pro-immigration. We can agree to disagree. https://www.samaritanmag.com/musicians/robert-plant-lampedusa-and-refugee-crisis-still-pretty-close-me

    Random Thoughts v.3

    Married filing jointly on an annual federal income tax return are taxed at a lower rate than if they were filing individually. There is less legal protection without a marriage certificate. For example, depending upon their state of legal residence if one of the two parents were to die their estate may have to be settled through costly probate court as opposed to direct inheritance. There are also a whole host of inequities with regard to medical insurance coverage. Marriage, to a large extent is a social construct. Without a marital bond the ascribed social status is often diminished..."living together"..."shacking up"..."playing house".

    Led Zeppelin Photo Mysteries

    Given the sustained, remarkable level of interest in the Zeppelin Mysteries thread in the main forum, I thought this would be the right time to launch a Photo Forum thread strictly for the purpose of examining obscure Led Zeppelin & related photographs. If you have a photo you are seeking to match against a specific date, concert, event, location or trying to identify someone depicted with them you've come to the right place. To get things started, I wish to submit this photograph of Page, Bonham & Plant astride Suzuki motorcycles. I seek any additional details:

    A family unit cannot function the exact same with or without a marriage certificate in that it will have higher taxation, less legal protection and diminished social status. Ben was purposefully speaking simplistically, because he was distilling a complex issue down to an essential truth, one which I happen to agree with. That said, I would say the real challenge in America is not so much attaining wealth as it is RETAINING wealth.

    "If all other things are equal" is possibly the biggest generalization one can make. Besides, regardless if all other things are equal or not, having children only within the context of marriage is the most advantageous approach for taxation and law considerations. It is also the most advantageous approach for maintaining a stable society.

    Yes, having children only within the context of marriage is the most advantageous approach for taxation and law considerations.

    You essentially said all an Asian has to do to succeed in America is show up and apply for their $500,000 grant. IMMAC90 pertains to immigration control thru visa categories/expansion -- there are no government grants associated with IMMAC90. Nor are there any government grants associated with USPAACC, NMSDC, banks, large firms, etc. because all of those are privately owned and operated organizations.

    If you are referring to EB-5 visas, which grant residency to immigrants who invest at least half a million dollars in the U.S. and create or save no less than 10 jobs, then perhaps you are confused. The EB-5 visa is issued in exchange for a $500,000 investment that creates or saves 10 American jobs. It is NOT a government grant, quite the contrary. On average, 85% of EB-5 visas are issued to Chinese nationals, the remainder primarily issued to citizens of Vietnam, India, Hong Kong, Egypt and Brazil. Approximately, 9,700 EB-5 visas are issued annually.

    Facebook and issues that come with it

    Recent security breaches and unethical data-sharing led me to decide to delete most of my profile content. Additionally, as of nearly four months ago I stopped actively posting to my profile when I confirmed Facebook now chooses to share all public posts with one's friends. Consequently, I deleted all of my friends. So at this point, my profile only exists for posting to groups I belong to and occasionally commenting outside of Facebook.

  25. As Zeptember turns to Rocktober and the imminent launch of Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience Tour it seems appropriate to start a new thread for the purpose of presenting a vast array of periodicals, photographs, videoclips, anecdotes, gig reviews etc. from Jason's three decades in rock music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVwZXtPOl8o Airrace was the first group Jason Bonham joined, at age 17. They released one hard-driving rock album in 1984, Shaft Of Light. Vocals: Keith Murrell Guitars: Laurie Mansworth Bass: Jim Reid, Keyboards: Toby Sadler Drums: Jason Bonham
