    Can you ever be truly happy without a lot of money?

    Not so sure it could make you happy, but it sure can guarantee a more comfortable life. I'm not rich by any means, but I'm happy with my life. Would it be easier if I had a lot of money, probably so, but I don't know if I'd necessarily be happier. I believe it all comes down to your...

    Ever thought about what you are gonna die of?

    But they are really few and far between to be honest. I would venture to guess for every 100 year old in good health, there's probably 10 in nursing homes drooling in their morning oatmeal on a daily basis.

    Male Cheerleaders

    The N.O. Saints actually took on a guy in their normally all female dance squad last year and he's gayer than gay. It's an abomination to what cheerleading should be and I agree with Duo, it's not a fucking sport, it's a diversion while watching sports. AND, with this all-inclusive PC shit...

    Ever thought about what you are gonna die of?

    My late father-in-law's dad lived to be 101 and I think in his mind he wanted to at least live as long as him, or possibly longer. However, cancer got him at age 84 with his last couple years being a roller coaster of ups and downs and finally spending the better part of the last year under...

    RBR!!! Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez (RING, WBC & WBA) vs. Billy Joe Saunders (WBO) - May 8th 2021

    Well, considering the fight was held in Vegas I guess they assumed there would be a "Home Town" type decision, maybe they were playing the odds of that happening. I remember that fight and Calzage dominated in every punching stat in that fight. He deserved the win. I've never been a...

    Ever thought about what you are gonna die of?

    I wouldn't mind much living to 85 just as long as I've got enough of my health left to be able to take care of myself and not be a burden to anyone. I've said it before and I'll say it again, if I become a burden to my loved ones, I'd much prefer to be dead than have to depend on them for my...

    RBR!!! Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez (RING, WBC & WBA) vs. Billy Joe Saunders (WBO) - May 8th 2021

    Come on man, you know how British media and fans love their boxers and think they are world beaters. Look at all the fans that followed Hatton over to Vegas when he fought Mayweather and Pacquaio and got starched by both of them. Go back in time and see how the fans reacted when Hagler...

    Floyd Mayweather Jr (50-0) vs Logan Paul (0-1) - 6 June 2021

    I seriously would not walk across the street to watch this fiasco live for free. I can't believe this is even going to be a PPV event and it just goes to show how fucking gullible some so-called fans can be because if you're a real fan of boxing, this crap should get under your skin...

    Ever thought about what you are gonna die of?

    If going by statistics here in the States, if you live a relatively long life (60+ years) it will be heart attack, cancer, or something like pneumonia that takes you out, with cancer and heart attacks leading the list. Alzheimer's is another consideration too. For younger folks, it is...

    Things you've just bought

    Bought a cheap pot from a Thrift Store yesterday to melt lead to make sinkers with the ladle and sinker mold I got delivered a couple days ago. I made 20 each of 2, 3 and 4 oz. size sinkers yesterday evening before it got dark and barely put a dent in the lead I picked up a couple weeks ago...

    ***Pictures / Videos***

    I saw this video on another site I visit and that coach ought to be thrown out the kid's football league for drills like that. There's absolutely no reason for a kid that young to be taking hits like he did. CTE is a serious thing and to start taking hits that young is a direct road to...

    Eerie/creepy photos. **UPDATED** - Historic newspaper front pages. Shitloads of newspaper front covers about tragedies.

    Bet the guy playing the victim was creeped the fuck out having that sick SOB hovering over him and knowing full well what he'd done to his victims.

    ***Pictures / Videos***

    I was in the local watering hole yesterday looking to have a go at darts in some pick-up games with league players and downing a few pints and this video came on the news at 5. Everybody who was watching the TV all gasped or screamed when that cat jumped and the ones that weren't watching...

    Any Americans here, hoarding gas or know people that do?

    If this is an accurate photo, then that person has an IQ of -10. ANY leak, no matter how small could result in an explosion since the exhaust pipes come out directly under the trunk on most cars and gasoline vapors are some of the easiest to ignite. The resulting explosion and fire would...
