That young man is in a real twist. Attending Barbers High School with long hair is just asking for trouble. They need to cut him some slack; he’s just a hair’s breadth away from graduation.

Taurasi is a pretty ridiculous player to pick and it makes me think Kobe doesn’t pay much attention to the WNBA. No 6-foot 38-year-old, coming off back surgery could make the transition to the NBA. That’s just crazy. maybe he’s just giving her props for her great career though.

I mean, they’re making a fun game. It’s not really the appropriate forum for a deep dive on racism. They acknowledged the controversy, they pulled no punches on his personal character, and redirected the reader to more diverse work. Read more

Yes, the quaint English countryside is absolutely bursting with groups of 6 people that are willing to spend $1,000 on a New Year’s Eve dinner, but don’t have any plans by December 28th.....Where my high rollers from Stodmarsh, Hoath, and Wickhambreaux at???

They absolutely “incurred direct expenses related to providing them with a meal” when they bought the (likely special NYE) ingredients and paid kitchen and waitstaff to be there to cook and serve it. I think the restaurant would have been smarter to eat the cost, but let’s not pretend this doesn’t cost them anything.

I don’t see how “fatally wounded family member” is a universal pass to get out of prepaid events.  You wouldn’t get sporting or concert tickets refunded if you couldn’t find a buyer.  CC companies aren’t in the feelings business.  But who knows, maybe there will be an update and we find out.

If you bought tickets to an event (sporting, music, whathaveyou) and couldn’t go because your family member was fatally wounded, would you get a chargeback?  They prepaid for a meal that was happening with or without them.  It isn’t 100% profit because the food was ordered and staff were scheduled.

If you buy a theatre ticket, and can’t go, you’d never expect to get your money back, would you? Same thing for a concert or sporting event.  Read more

It was 2002. Things were different. Girls Gone Wild was still riding high. American Pie had made a joke of voyeurism. You should have introduced those kids to the wonders of group sex.

But then you would be on the hook for cancelling at the other place you made reservations. Because it’s NYE.

Arrangements like this are a way for both parties to assign risk. The restaurant, knowing that an empty six-top could seriously dent its bottom line, chose to mitigate its risk by taking a credit card number and transferring that risk to customers should their tables not be filled. For any reason.

One of the things the guy doesn’t come out and say is whether they’re still doing the stuff they used to do, like dirty talk and visiting sex clubs. He clearly sees his life pre-marriage as a story of progress toward cuckolding, but it isn’t 100% clear if his current frustration is about the loss of a previously Read more
