The Theranos scammer, Elizabeth Homes, got $100M out of Betsy DeVoss' family.

If you have $100M to squander like that, you deserve to lose it. smile

Congratulations Greger!
Your timing was excellent in this nationwide chaotic real-estate market. Just think how much more you could have gotten if you could have held out until right before the crash, grin which I dont see coming!
The market out there is terrible for first time home buyers. Even in the rust belt here, hedge funds are buying up everything worth renting with cash, and now will raise all rents, but only what the market will bear!
New buyers who need mortgages cant compete with the hedgers who suddenly come in with $20K bids over asking price, in cash!

I appreciate the forms of males and females alike...one of the motivations for getting down on the trail among all the athletic types. I'm not a player anymore but I still enjoy watching the game.

I hadn't even considered that he might be a triathlete. They just had the Great Floridian Iron Man Triathlon here last week, 2.4 mi swim 128 mile bike and then a marathon run. I can't imagine what inspires someone to put themselves through something like that.

There's also a guy down there with no legs who runs on those blade things. My ex mentioned that he was pretty fast and generally blows by everybody else on the trail. Turns out he's a double amputee marathon world record holder. One of those African marathoners, but with no legs. He lives in a nearby town and fits amputees to their prosthetics for a living. There's an easy 7-mile run around the lake for those inclined to do that sort of thing.

Jonathan's just "being Jonathan".
He was a triathlete prior to enlisting in the Army and prior to getting injured.
The truth is, he's really not doing anything he wouldn't normally be doing, except now that he's a disabled vet, he's doing it differently.
But everyone who knew him before says not much has changed.

The docs told him he'd never regain anything below his shoulders and he took that as a dare....typical of the guy.
So far the only thing he's been unlucky with is love...two wives and two matching divorces and two trips to (almost) clean him out financially.
He no longer has the lavish home with the pool, he had to scale back his lifestyle after Lost Wife #2 it seems.

Yep, he's a triathlete. Good lookin' rascal too. This is him in a racing chair, looks like the deal's on. We've texted a bit and he's gonna call tonight. He was a motocross racer until he crashed at 16 and injured his spinal cord. He's Canadian.

8 Sarchasm: The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn't get it

10. Osteopornosis: A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit.)

13. Glibido: All talk and no action.

17. Caterpallor (n.): The colour you turn when you discover half a worm in the fruit you're eating.

16. Circumvent, n. An opening in the front of boxer shorts worn by Jewish men.


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.

Q: What did they call the give and take when young Tatum was nursing as a child?

A: Tit for Tat.


Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

That's too bad he got soaked.

When guy's break-up, they just call each other a bytch, and move on. Hmm
