[quote]This isn't what you hope it is.[/quote]You're right. These e-mails don't prove Trump Jr, Manafort, and Kushner colluded with the Russian Government to win an American election. It just proves they wanted to, tried to, and would have if given the chance. How long till we find out they were giv...

re: Moving to Hawaii--Thinking of buying a house - jturn17
[quote]I've heard a variety of opinions on buying; most appealing one I've heard is "it's an island so limited future development" means land prices will always go up. [/quote]There's probably a lot of truth to this, especially in the middle of the island. I believe the coasts can vary with the eco...

re: Moving to Hawaii--Thinking of buying a house - jturn17
Which Island? The markets in Oahu, Kauai, and Maui are all close to the top as far as I can tell. I'm less sure about the Big Island. If you're willing to live with water catchment, you'll probably be able to find something reasonable on the Big Island. Also, there are a lot of leasehold prope...

[quote]because career had stagnated. [/quote]You think his career is going to improve by playing once a month as the 4th choice CB? He needs a loan to a team that will give him lots of minutes. Send him off to Man City Girona with Maffeo. Or they could send him to NAC Breda. His brother plays for...

[quote]The Cavs didn't need the refs help last night but its tough to say they didn't get it, intentional or not.[/quote]Yes, that flagrant foul call on Love was super helpful to the Cavs. And giving the Warriors more free throw attempts really did make it easy on the Cavs last night....

[quote]Also made a 130 million euro bid for Mbappe[/quote]In no way do I believe this actually happened. City may have to pay 45m for Ederson though because of his third party ownership. I watched him in the CL some, and he looks great. That first year in England as a GK can be tough though....

re: No way in hell will this be taken seriously - jturn17
LeBron struggles with free throws for the same reason his outside shot can be inconsistent: He has always struggled with his balance. It probably doesn't help that he changes his FT routine and mechanics 2-3 times a season, but I think that's a symptom of him trying to get his balance correct....

Firestick can have issues with some of the streaming services like Vue, DirectTV Now, Sling. FireTV, Roku, AppleTV will all be great though. Firestick is just too slow. Sometimes the picture will hesitate and you have to pause and press play again....
