In Kimoa we believe that, regardless of what occurs outside, life is what happens within. Freedom is a state of mind, and limitations are too. We always chose freedom. We believe that if something frightens you a little, but it makes you happy, you should go for it. That's the essence of adventures.

The stock was way over valued for what the new TV deal was going to bring in so this seems like a correction and also Vince wasn't able to touch the orb while in the middle east.

It tracks almost exactly with any other stock I look at, with the caveat that WWE peaked higher than most.

The economy is facing some very bad headwinds based upon certain leading indicators and Trump's trade war bullshit has been causing stocks to fall across the board (this is why Republicans aren't as panicked about the blue wave as they'd have you believe, because they'll just blame the Democrats after they take the House in November and the economy goes tits-up by February).

Here's a record that I was pretty certain of but is now confirmed: at just over 23 minutes, Lynch vs Flair last night was the longest women's match in the history of Smackdown or Raw. So there's that i guess.

She's a good wrestler if you don't care about character.

Like a flashy personality but it's still Dean Malenko underneath, the character doesn't make sense or impact on matches.

embers gimmick is "girl who was super into the underworld movies" and I think it works better or worse depending on if you knew a girl who was obsessed with those movies

she is very bad on the mic though yeah

Jeremy Corbyn has been made the subject of an official complaint to the Labour party over his suggestion in 2013 that some British Zionists do not understand 'English irony'.

Are you offended?

Why not put in a complaint?




Anyone wanting to see Ember should watch her Takeover matches with Asuka, they're both women's best matches in the company to date

Not only that but just now from WaPo:

quote:

The crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman, ordered an operation to lure Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia from his home in Virginia and then detain him, according to U.S. intelligence intercepts of Saudi officials discussing the plan.
