Most years around about now has been when I've done my first fantasy football draft to kick off the season....however this year I've got a different goal. Instead of that I've decided to start training for my first actual game of rugby in 26 years. I have about 3 1/2 months to get in shape for a charity match for a friend who passed away and given it's a "Golden Oldies" (35+, more relaxed rules), that shouldn't be a problem but after so long there's a heap of nervousness still. Will I train for a few months then get steamrolled by the first person I try to tackle etc

I should mention I'm completely devoid of any actual talent so the mental side of getting back onto a field is going to be a challenge.

I got one of these too. It was in my gmail spam so I couldn’t read or click anything. It’s just random clickbait spam to get you to click. Gmails spam filter is pretty good.

You know how Udemy courses almost always have a list price of $199 but are on sale perpetually for $10?

Planned on spending an hour on a course this morning. Went to buy it and the price was actually $199. No sale. I've never experienced that on Udemy before.

So annoying.

I guess I'll just have to wait a day or so until the next sales starts and I can get the course for $10 again.

Yeah, they were pushing hard last month! A seller can opt out of the sales, too

backstory
It was just spam. I was getting poorly translated emails that somebody wants to hook up with me or
that someone wants to date me. I pretty much got used to those.

But it seems that spammer had to finally check if my email was active (worth sending spam to)
hence the "hate" email. If You'd react to that mail You'd get new wave of spam love letters :D

Process vs event to win an NBA championship.

All this talk about the Process in Philly...
The real formula was the Event all along...

Just get a top 3 player on your team: KD, Lebron, Kawhi.

I have great thought:
Doing theories about crypto is like doing theories about coin flip.

I mean, astral forces, hour of the day, moon phases.

But is my thought correct??
For only one reason ...no... because coin flipping is biased!

You have higher chance to win coin flipping then doing crypto :p

First US president to ever set foot in North Korea...

Political views aside, it’s a big deal.
Also Trump allowing Huawei to work with US businesses again felt like a big relief to me.

Wouldn't like too much trade war fighting, even though it profits non-participant countries.

Hopefully the US can reach a similar settlement with Iran without a bang.

On a side note, I've found that on Windows 10, we already have a ready-installed screen recorder.
It's from the already installed XBox app that comes with all Windows 10 devices, and supposedly for gaming.
But it works well to record online calls and webinars. :)

Will be using these function for an online talk recommended by Agora's series of financial emails.
Something on some guy called George Gilder...seems he has some predictions about the Internet...

Zoom meeting is another great free screen recorder. I think the free version limits calls to 45 minutes.

Good luck! My days of playing or even wanting to play Aussie rules footy are well past me, but I know I’ve got some games of cricket left in me :rofl:

imagine if this was your wife LOL
It's kinda hot! Is a lot worse way's to be spending your time and money. The hoarding part is the worrisome part. Wonder if she get's tax credit for the donations. She could sell to other mom and pop convience and grocery stores also as a supplier. Or open her own store with profits going to the charities she supports.

I kinda hate The Godfather movies. Not so much the movies, but the reverence that people had for the characters. I mean give it a break... Micheal was a total piece of shit. People say "Fredo deserved to die because blah blah".. no, Micheal was a piece of shit. Period. Even Vito was a garbage human being in my opinion. He had this veneer of a morality connoisseur. It's hard to take your little 'moral code' seriously when you're entire ways of gaining power are killing people for personal gain, rather than creating value for humanity. But it's a symptom of the societal beliefs people have... that status is only gained through bullying, rather than competence.

I know I’m a dork sometimes.. but I just want to hug like twenty ppl from this forum. Some of you are like the older brothers I never had. You don’t notice me but I’m in awe of you.

Good job guys. I’m happy to be here. Hopefully I’ll find a way to add real value (besides just liking your posts) sooner or later. Until then my profits are up, my spending is down, my days are more disciplined and I’m kinda proud.

Just a bit.

Thank you for your contribution, and your presence. Much appreciated.

We hold a Summit every spring in Arizona (although it was canceled last year) and hopefully you can meet many of us, assuming things continue to trend up and it happens.

So weird sidenote! I met a guy online in an SEO group in February. He’s from Phoenix. He and I have similar personalities so we became real friends over the last six months. And apparently... duh duh duhhhhhh he’s met you! I didn’t bring you up first, I hinted about CENTS and he started talking bout your book and stuff.. So of course, I’m all, “IS HE AS COOL IN REAL LIFE?!?!”

And my dude was like, “Yea. He’s seriously down to earth!”

The convo lasted all of two minutes but it was a happy moment.

So I have a place to stay in Phoenix if you have the meetup thing ANNND I got confirmation that you’re just as cool as I thought you were!

A few videos I made a while back while messing around with Final Cut:

Jordan Peterson delivers speech to Harvard Students on the true purpose of University

View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cquCc1LanVU


Unfinished video, but features Mr @MJ DeMarco as I loved his way of defining"Value"

(Apologies, the beginning of the video is a bit tounge-in-cheek)

View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AsHu7U_YZug

Alan Watts - What If Money Were No Object?

View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0Zr-HGT4RQ

This was when I was trying to learn Final Cut, but I ended up liking the way they came out.
