In addition to being a terrible, condescending question, it’s also a deeply stupid one that shows the reporter doesn’t understand how basketball works. Baylor got outrebounded because defensive rebounds are easier than offensive ones, and Baylor missed way more shots. Baylor rebounded better than Yale on a percentage…
Yale upset Baylor in our first 12-over-5 of this year’s NCAA tournament, and in the post-game presser Bears star Taurean Prince was asked how the Bulldogs managed to grab more boards than the larger Big XII squad. Prince’s very literal answer is spot-on.
In my observation, money cannot buy class—true—but it can help you create your own class.
“Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave. Which is a real sad thing, because then we have another issue that we’ve got to deal with down the road.”
After opening his mouth and expelling a noxious cloud of racist words about heroin dealers named “D Money” who are constantly knocking up Maine’s white women, Gov. Paul LePage today explained he only said those things because of his “slow” brain. Sure!
It is always interesting to look at the Carrier Air Wings of the past. Today America’s super carrier decks look far more homogeneous, with variants of the F/A-18 Hornet doing all the fixed-wing tactical work.. The photo above is shot aboard the USS Constellation in 1967, at the height of the Vietnam War, and it shows…
It’s now been over three decades since cyberpunk first exploded, and in that time we’ve seen gorgeous movies, read fascinating books, and seen dozens of offshoots like steampunk (and my new favorite, deco punk) develop. Here are the 21 cyberpunk books you absolutely must read.
With the origin of Morgan: Peace Warrior safely behind us, The Walking Dead returns to Alexandria, where the blood hasn’t quite dried, the corpses haven’t turned, and the residents suddenly discover that life in the zombie apocalypse is actually not that easy. And then Rick Grimes arrives to make everything worse.
High from his “freedom rally” with Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis, Republican Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee weighed in on the Dred Scott decision—because when you’re wrong, be wrong about everything.
Former Arkansas Governor and current contender for grouchiest Cabbage Patch Doll Mike Huckabee spent last night’s Democratic debate on a tear, tweeting rather unreservedly about the issues. It was eye-opening, at least for anyone not already aware of his penchant for terrible metaphors.
On Tuesday, NBC News reported that soggy burlap sack Donald Trump will host Saturday Night Live on November 7 with musical guest Sia.
I think this is a very accurate algorithm. I got 7 games for killing a famous African lion, but 8 games for drugging and raping a bunch of women. That accurately reflects Roger’s commitment to the domestic violence space.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is a ruddy incompetent who draws out decisions on punishing league employees in order to soak up the most positive attention he can. Until now, fans have only been to take part in this experience as third parties. Thanks to the NFL Punishment Generator, though, you too can answer a…
Tom Brady Sr. called a San Francisco radio program Friday afternoon to defend his son, angrily declaring the show’s host “full of crap” and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell a “flaming liar.”
Legendary director Wes Craven died yesterday at the age of 76. His name became synonymous with horror, thanks to films like A Nightmare on Elm Street, Last House on the Left, and the Scream series—a most unexpected career for a man who didn’t even see his first movie until he was in college.
On January 27, 1991, at a record-release party for the rap duo Bytches With Problems in Hollywood, producer/rapper/then-N.W.A. member Dr. Dre brutally attacked Dee Barnes, the host of a well-known Fox show about hip-hop called Pump It Up! Dre was reportedly angry about a Pump It Up! segment hosted by Barnes that aired…
We’ve suspected that Pixels would be an almighty disaster ever since we saw the first trailer, but it’s actually worse than we feared. Director Chris Columbus is clearly trying to create another great fantasy adventure, but he’s hamstrung by a short-sighted script. And Adam Sandler’s painful performance.
I hate people.
It also (possibly) explains an equally common phenomenon: the genuinely very skilled often radically underestimate their ability because a) Their ability means they understand the vastness of what they don’t know and b) They don’t realise that what they find easy, others do not.
