Relevant. 

 

Also - Bring back embedded tweets. Incarcerate android users. 

It seems that as soon as players are getting paid various amounts based on perceived value, it makes team gelling and overall performance plummet.  See UNC. 
 

it’s fascinating actually

While surely this is in jest I always wonder why Apple is treated like some deity by its users?  And why those users feel the need to ridicule people who don't use the same phone as them.  I just don't see android users, or really any users of other competing apple technology proselytizing how great their product is.

Probably some embedded Chinese propaganda subconsciously influencing the users. I use Korean Samsung products.  In 7 years all those Chinese made products might be hard to come by (1). Maybe Apple will be made in Northern Mexico but the shift will take time.

It is strange, especially since Google/Android is frequently ahead of Apple from a pure phone tech perspective

Except in displaying embedded tweets on billikens.com, apparently. 🤔

Apple used to be kind of "punk rock" in the 80s and 90s, competing as a small company against the huge leviathon of Microsoft with all its monopolies, anti trust suits, and poor product rollouts.  But Apple has just become Microsoft now, and actually, they are worse than Microsoft ever was. From a business standpoint despite advances in program integration Iphones still just aren't as productive as androids can be with most companies existing software.

Fascinating guy.  His appearance on Rogan was interesting.  His extreme confidence in his ideas is slightly disconcerting but interesting none-the-less....

Books are on Audible and are very good.  Some high level US strategic thinkers/doers read him and are influenced by him.  He nailed the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Sorry for placing this here, it feels relevant for the transfer discussion. Can anyone confirm that Thames really is at least 6’7”? How about 6’8”?

6'7.5" - blue font - seriously one inch is not that critical.
