Pretty much. I don't think that policy works.

It's just one day you can't drive. Like if it ends in 1 or 2, you can't drive Monday. So for sure the rich have two cars.

Also, there's like a million heliports around the city. That's how the super rich get around. It's nuts.

crime in Brazil is nuts. Be very very careful.

You try reading Feast for Crows a third time. It's not fun.

I watch the TV series at least once per year but have little desire to read the books again for just that reason.

Update on where I'm at now.

I did see one reply by BigD where he said the series isn't as good as it continues. While no season as a whole has been as good as season 1, there have still been some really good moments.


I'm still really enjoying the show. Excited to see what happens next.



I just watched the entire series again, I do it at least once a year.

I think the biggest problem as the series progresses is that the storytelling and pace of things get compacted unlike the first season.

Without spoiling anything for you though on the other hand from a technical standpoint it's keeps getting better and better. Some of the battle scenes that you haven't seen yet are truly great.


#3769844 2018 F C P W S O P Pool - 1St Prize $5K Plus $5K To Charity

Posted FCP Bob on 22 May 2018 - 05:45 AM

Rules
Entrants will choose a fantasy team of 16 players consisting of one player from each of 16 groups of 4.

The fantasy team that accumulates the most Fantasy Points during the 2018 WSOP in Las Vegas will be the winner
In the event of a tie the entrant whose guess of the number of entrants in the 2018 WSOP Event Number #65 The $10K NHLE Main Event is closest to the actual number of entrants will be awarded the higher finishing position.

Fantasy Points will be earned by the Fantasy Players in events at the 2018 WSOP where they finish in the money (cash).

Base Fantasy Points are awarded on Fantasy Players finishing position in each tournament.
1st – 50 Points
2nd – 45 Points
3rd – 40 Points
4th – 35 Points
5th – 30 Points
6th – 25 Points
7th – 20 Points
8th – 15 Points
9th – 10 Points
10th – 18th – 5 Points
Other Cashes – 1 Point

The following are the modifications to the Base Fantasy Points for each event.

* Base Fantasy Points 0.5x in events with less than a $1k buy-in
* Tag Team Events Do Not Count
* Base Fantasy Points are worth double in events with a $10k buy-in or higher
* Base Fantasy Points are worth 1.5x in events with a $5k buy-in
* The Main Event is worth 3x the Base Fantasy Points.
* An additional point per 100 entries is awarded to players who finish in the top 18. No rounding off. An event with 87 players gets no point bonus, a 105 player field gets a 1 point bonus, a 265 player field gets a 2 point bonus, and a 1451 player field would award a 14 point bonus to all players in top 18. This is in addition to the base points and not subject to any buy in size multiplier.
* Events with a buy-in of less than $1k will have the field size bonus capped at 9 tables and the field size bonus is capped at 100 points.
* For every 1000 players 9 more players get the field bonus.
* In order to receive points, a player must cash.
* In a heads up or shootout event, players finishing in the same position would split the points for that spot. For example, 5th through 8th would get 22.5 points (plus field size bonuses) and be rounded up.
* Points will only be awarded in open events, no Seniors, Ladies, or Employee events will count in addition no Tag Team events being counted.

I dont think Lou+Hunter leaving is good for the Leafs, but Mirtle is reporting that if they do, they may/will hire Ron Francis as a senior consultant.
Move over, I'm coming on board

losing Hunter will be a negative but I think losing Lou would be a positive.
