Disagree. What she did last yr falls into the 'colossal fluke' category
imo.
 
Look at her AO win for eg - she was down 2 match points in 1st rd to
lose in straight sets to a nobody, yet she wins those points & the
match, & goes on to beat Serena in the final. Had she lost 1st rd she
would have won 30k prizemoney. As champion she ended up with 3 mil.

That's a ridiculous post. Who cares how she lost in the first round? Lots of players almost lose early round matches and go on to win slams, including some of the GOATS of the sport.
 
Secondly, Kerber won TWO slams last year and not only the AO. Winning two slams isn't a fluke. Like Murray, Kerber used up a lot of energy trying to get to #1 last year and she's slumping at the moment like Murray is. Whether she'll win another slam who knows but a two slam winner is no chump.

After twisting my brain in all kinds of weird contortions the past
hour or so, I believe I finally figured out what he meant!
 
He must have been referring to an alien, for otherwise he
would have said "Who speaks for the orange clown?".

That sounds more neutral. Otoh, speaking for, as soaring on his
behalf, but in this case different actions and his views do the
speaking, not a person.
 
I don't know, maybe
phrasing is similar in his and mine language,
but I understood his (according to you) broken English perfectly.

The above three are quality films with some substance. What did you think about these three? (I'm not expecting much from somebody who is over 20 and goes to see Baywatch and those ridiculous Fast and Furious movies.)

Good horror/thriller. I was expecting nothing and was pleasantly surprised.

I saw this film and thought it was disappointing. Talk about a cliched character in Sally Field's eccentric older woman with cats!

Terrible horror film.

I liked this horror film. I thought it was well-done.

Nothing outstanding but it had it's good points. A safe, feel-good story.

Bad in every way possible.

A movie which tried to be stylish but had no substance.

So bad it isn't funny. One of TT's faves!

I liked it a lot. We've discussed this film ad nauseam on RST.

Another film I didn't like.

I liked the story here about Ray Kroc who recognized a good idea in the fast food business and took the idea to astronomical heights.

It was entertaining. Guess Who's Coming to Dinner meets the Stepford Wives.

Awful.

you're confused. when you specify which %'s you're comparing, then you
are telling your audience how to interpret the #s you're about to pan
out. that's what you refuse (in your anger) to realize.

If it only was so. Unfortunately, in bob-rithmetic this means specifying
a quantity (NIH/GDP) and calculating changes in it in a random fashion.
You've already cited percentages from 40% to 25% to 481%. The first of
which is a lie, the second a guess, and the third an F- effort in 3rd
grade 'rithmetic.
 
We've already hashed this out, all this is indisputable.

Zoo tiger death: Victim named as Rosa King
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-40089174
 
A zoo-keeper who died after a tiger entered an enclosure at a wildlife park in Cambridgeshire has been named as 33-year-old Rosa King.
The death happened at Hamerton Zoo Park, near Huntingdon, at about 11:15 BST on Monday.
Friend Garry Chisholm, a wildlife photographer in his spare time, said she was the "focal point" and "shining light" of the wildlife park.
The zoo said it was a freak accident, and police said it was not suspicious.

Khedira, Ozil, Podolski, Klose, Boateng were all in the squad. They are all of foreign origin or have parents of foreign origin.

Extrapolating & generalizing, Africans from Africa usually beat Africans
who migrated to Europe and Middle East in the middle and long distance
races at the Olympics and Chinese from China beat Chinese emigrants
representing other countries in Table Tennis and Badminton.
 
Canada could simply make a team of US olympic rejects (swimming, Athletics
in particular) and earn more medals than developing a team of their own
for the Olympics!

She's my pick to win the rst contest and she almost lost in R1.
Couldn't buy a first serve when it mattered but credit to her for coming
back from 3-0 in the third and breaking Brady every game after levelling
at 4-4. She was on the verge of tears almost the entire third set but
the crowd helped her come back.

She injured her back before the match and wasn't going to play it at all. She's lucky she made it through that first match. If her back flare-up doesn't get better, she won't make it far. From the highlights I watched it looked like she was a completely different player than she has been the past few months where she looked awesome on clay!
 
All of these players are basket cases with injuries, lack of a champion's mentality, etc. You don't know if any of them will lose the first round or decide to take something seriously and win the title. But good for Mladenovic to fight through that match!

he showed 97, and it had much more depth statistically. but yeah, in
real terms, probably not much either. but it did have VARIETY of
styles.

the young republicans of yale also hosted a BBQ next to the hunger
strike. some of the liberals participating asked if they could opt out
to join the BBQ, but still "maintain their presence" emotionally at
the strike.

@realDonaldTrump
Whenever you see the words 'sources say' in the fake news media,
and they don't mention names....
 
@realDonaldTrump
....it is very possible that those sources don't exist but are
made up by fake news writers. #FakeNews is the enemy!
