Jew got to be kidding me?

Who among us hasn't made a tiny math error?

Sam Bankman-Fried says he "misaccounted" $8 billion after some FTX customer funds were mistakenly counted twice, Bloomberg reported. The news outlet interviewed Bankman-Fried at his $30 million Bahamas penthouse after the collapse of FTX. The former billionaire – who now says he's down to his last $100,000 – showed Bloomberg's Zeke Faux a spreadsheet of FTX and Alameda's accounts.

Won't you feel sorry for this poor guy who is down to his last few notes of cash? He just might be forced to sell his $30 million property. So sad!


Records shattered

The T20 and ODI title holders are hungry for the Test championship:

506 for 4 England's total at stumps in Rawalpindi. They bettered a record that has stood since 1910 to become the first team to cross the 500-run mark on the first day of a Test match. England's tally of 506 is also the second-most scored by any team in a single day of Test cricket, behind Sri Lanka's 509 on day two against Bangladesh in 2002.

1 England became the first team ever to end day one of a Test match with four centurions. Australia managed three - once in 1884 against England and once in 2012 against South Africa.

What's even more astonishing is that those runs came from 75 overs! Given the fact that Ben "The Legend" Stokes was still batting, England would have likely smashed over 600 runs if the usual 90 overs were bowled. That would have easily broken the all-time single day record for most runs scored.


Perfidy

Trump wasn't kidding when he called the media The Enemy of the People.


Fortune favors the bold

Parasite-powered Alphas:

Wolves infected with a common parasite are more likely than uninfected animals to lead a pack, according to an analysis of more than 200 North American wolves1. Infected animals are also more likely to leave their home packs and strike out on their own.

The parasite, Toxoplasma gondii, makes its hosts bold — a mechanism that increases its survival.

Fascinating. The scientists were stunned by the findings.

For Meyer, the moral of the story is that parasites can be major players in ecosystems. “Parasites might have a much larger role than anyone generally gives them credit for,” he says.


No love for romaine hearts

Life in the cold North:

“I don’t even know the price until it shows up,” he said.

In the last few weeks, Dean has considered himself lucky if he gets a quarter of the cases he normally needs, and actually, that’s fine, because at these prices — $6.99 for a head of iceberg, $14.99 for a bag of three romaine hearts — nobody’s buying it anyway.

That's some very expensive water thanks to the supply shock in California.


There is no justice

The Democrats protect their revenue stream:

It's the same with "protests". American cities burned and dozens were murdered while the media called it "mostly peaceful" but show up unarmed at the wrong place on January 6, 2021, and you're put in jail for years.


Is this White Privilege?

He likely voted for the very people who fired him for being White. The admins will get brownie points for hiring a lower-wage colored clown who'll perform worse. Of course, the new diversity hire won't be fired for incompetence because that would be RACISSS.


Pain for Mr. Payne

Range Anxiety is quite real:

Payne wrote that he charged the truck to a full 100 percent charge ahead of the trip, and that the manufacturer claimed that a full charge should have allowed him to travel the whole distance without another charge.

The next part made me laugh.

Payne wrote that as he sat at his third charging station of the day, another driver asked what sort of mileage he was getting on his roughly $93,000 EV truck.

“I’m getting about 170 miles of range on this trip up I-75,” he told the other driver. “How about you?”

The man replied, “I’ve got the turbo-6 cylinder. I’m getting 600 miles and 22 mpg. I don’t think I’ll ever get one of those electrics.”

A sitcom can get a lot of mileage out of the shortcomings of an EV.


A train wreck

There was a psycho girl from Pakistan who lived in the US. She blogged about her crazy leftist beliefs. I would simply provide excerpts and critique her logic and reasoning abilities. Her response? She cried like a little girl and wrote that I was a "cyber bully".

That was definitely amusing.

She had to look at her blog stats, click to arrive at my site, and then read my devastatingly brutal words about herself. All she could conjure up was: U R CYBER BULLY!

It was quite surreal to witness such a combination of mental retardation and emotional weakness. Eventually, she decided to nuke her blog. Sad!


So very progressive

The logic of equality means that women lose:

Last year, Hoffman was a mediocre cross-country runner on Seattle Academy’s boys’ team. During freshman year, Aspen Hoffman competed as a boy and finished 72nd in the League finals. Now, as a sophomore competing as a girl, Hoffman broke Seattle Academy’s school record in the girls’ 5000-meter category and ranks 1st in League.

The parents are pussies.

Parents are terrified to even raise concerns about Hoffman’s presence on the girls’ team. Another parent noted, “parents are upset but they know it has to go to the state committee, which isn't politics, it's the state high school board, and unless there's any kind of pressure put on them to change the rule nothing's going to happen.”


You'll drink water and you'll be happy!

No fooling Betty:

Betty Henry, a consumer in London, Ont., has been using E.D Smith's Pumpkin Pie Filling for 50 years to make pies for Thanksgiving. She says she noticed a difference in the filling as soon as she opened the can this year.

The pie filling used to list vegetable oil as the third-largest share in the ingredient list.

In the new version of the product that Henry used this year, vegetable oil had been moved to sixth place. And taking its place at third? Water.

The company watered down the product and then, to add insult to injury, spiked the price by 50% in under two years.

The price of the pumpkin pie filling has increased by more than 50 per cent since January 2021. At that time, the pie filling was $3.99. In October 2022, it had gone up to $6.03 at Loblaws stores in Toronto. Both versions of the can were 540 millilitres.

It's understandable when businesses have to increase prices. Shrinking the product packaging has become standard practice. Still, uncool. However, boosting the water content while keeping the same product name is scummy.


The Man, The Myth, The Legend

2019-07-14: ODI World Cup final win against the Kiwis.
2019-08-25: Test match win against the Aussies. Yes, that one.
2022-11-13: T20 World Cup final win against Pakistan.

Ben Stokes had played 42 T20 matches before today. Shockingly, he hadn't scored a single fifty in over ten years! He finally decided to slay that statistic in the World Cup final. The calm and cool cricketer has his trifecta. Ben Stokes has played three great matches in all formats. The ODI final, the Ashes last-wicket victory, and the full redemption for his devastating loss against West Indies in the T20 final in 2016 by making his highest score against Pakistan today.

Many columns will be written, documentaries will be made, and movies will be shot about Ben Stokes: one of the greatest cricket players from England.

Is there anything more he can do? Well, there is only one achievement left: winning the Test championship. If I had to bet ...


The greatest English team ever?

Is this English team on the path to greatness or will the Pakistanis spoil their party?

After all, for England's white-ball agenda-setters, this Melbourne match is a date with destiny of a subtly different magnitude. At some point in the next 48 hours, weather permitting, we shall know if England have managed to become the first men's team in history to hold both the 50-over and 20-over World Cups simultaneously, and by dint of that achievement, whether they have conferred on themselves a measure of greatness that a select few teams in history can claim to have achieved.

They've definitely been the most improved team of the past six years. They're handling pressure and making it to the finals of major events. Hopefully, we get a proper 40-over match. It would be such a loss for the players and the fans if the miserable rain were to ruin this historical contest.


Exceeding the minimum balance

So, the banksters at JP Morgan Chase must have known about the Ponzi scheme but didn't do anything about it.
