  1. You keep saying this kliqqy boy and it is so blue collar stupid I can't stop laughing. You believe what you want to, but I have my investments right up here on the screen. Tell me what you know about asset allocation? Do you know who Bogel or Swensen are? What's an index fund? What's an expense ratio? What's the difference between a Roth IRA and a 401k? Extra credit 403b. Type what you want. I know and you know you can't answer these questions and it proves you are not taking care of things and are a financial loser. Here’s the real story. I came here to post some frustration over these dinky little trades that are doing little to reverse the demise of the Red Wings. I made a post, then checked my investment funds and came back. Like the new girl meeting the gang of little junior high school mean girls, I was reprimanded for not following the rules of discourse for your little cliché. I realized how truly pathetic it is. To some of you, your list of “friends,” likes, and posts counts actually mean something to you. You actually measure this as some kind of accomplishment! Like it has some actual value, or worse, it gives you some kind of worth! I could care less what any of you say. Why? Because, I actually accomplish things in the real world and from that I have real capital I can spend, not web forum capital. You are one server crash away from losing your meaningless identity. To the mean girls wannabes who don't quite fit in, I implore you, give up on your quest to impress these keyboard jockeys! Instead spend your computer time learning to code. There are no shortage of free courses that can help you develop job earning skills. Web development with html, javascript, css or learn how to work with data using SQL, Python or R. Try 30 minutes a day with Learn Python the Hard Way vs letsgowings for a few weeks and see what happens. While you rack up skills, you can come back here now and again and see how the more popular loser mean girls spent the same amount of time and effort racking up meaningless post counts and likes. Good luck.
  2. You are so wise. I found that when someone wastes their life posting on a hockey forum, they generally have nothing much to show in other areas of life and rely instead on a meaningless online identity vs the one the identity have failed to establish in the real world. Greatness doesn't equal money, but money can represent someone who took on responsibilities, made decisions, set goals and worked toward achieving those goals. When you are a grown up who has done all this, maybe you will understand.
  3. Not the movie, it was a comic for decades. Part of general cultural knowledge among those reasonably aware and educated.
  4. The saddest thing here is not that he was our top goal scorer. The saddest thing is he was our top goal scorer with 15 goals.
  5. Richie was born rich, but he was a good kid.
  6. I'm very relaxed. Comes from hard work and being in control of one's life. Went away to look at my retirement funds and investments. Market is a down a little today, but having a well thought out balanced portfolio keeps me cool every day. So, keep posting boys and I'll go back to my money.
  7. Me too. I was pretty young, but it was super stressful and then unbelievable. The Soviets were out of this world with insane other wordly skills and it may be hard for people to understand just how unbeatable they seemed back then. At the same time our mutually blowing up the world was a serious concern. As a kid I remember thinking some of those NHL games with the Soviets would lead to a war! :-) Nobody knew at the time, of course, that our own local NHL team would one day pluck away their talent for the most amazing Wings line ever (including a few defections right out of spy movies).
  8. Man, I had no idea he was an anti vaccine guy!
  9. Wait are we saying Holland is a genius now for one ok trade? I'm not hopping on this roller coaster. Big deal. He answered the phone and said yes. He still has too many failings to answer for.
  10. Oh lord forgot about that. Atanis is just a son of a rich guy, but Kane takes jerk to the highest level.
  11. I'm wondering if Jurco isn't the only younger player wanting to go somewhere else. Could you imagine being much more talented, like AA or Larkin, and having to go to work for the moron Blashill every single day?
  12. Saw this douchebag at a Detroit area music store whining over having to wait his turn. Like a bad movie (the only kind he would ever be in) he actually said, "Do you know who I am?"
  13. He'd probably have irreversible thumb damage if he typed it all out! Just razzing you, but what is up with that screen name? Trying to figure out what thought process would lead to that.
  14. With all the garbage taking up server space you'ld think we could have every hockey game ever played. I know, I know, that would take a ton of work and money, but times like these you need some great old Wings games. Off topic. But I have an old nonHD DVD set of best wings games of the modern era. Cup wins and the two classic games with the Avs. That was some insanely great hockey. Best we might ever see.
