james Bond the spy. I did not know about the other guy

That's the guy who the spy was named after :D

“When I wrote the first one, in 1953, I wanted Bond to be an extremely dull, uninteresting man to whom things happened; I wanted him to be the blunt instrument. One of the bibles of my youth was ‘Birds of the West Indies,’ by James Bond, a well-known ornithologist, and when I was casting about for a name for my protagonist I thought, My God, that’s the dullest name I’ve ever heard, so I appropriated it. Now the dullest name in the world has become an exciting one. Mrs. Bond once wrote me a letter thanking me for using it.”
- Ian Fleming, as quoted by The New Yorker, 13th April 1962

Saw on the internet yesterday that the NBA will no longer refer to team owners as "team owners." The reason? Wait for it...WAIT FOR IT...it's racist! Yes friends, you read that right. The NBA considers the term "owner" to be racist, as it implies that team owners (who tend to be white) own their players (who tend to be black), all of which brings back nasty memories regarding slavery. From here on, team owners will now be known as "governors", as if that term is really any better. Never mind the fact that the teams don't actually "own" any players - they are contracted to play for the individual teams, much like a vendor has a contract to provide certain services at a venue. The NBA has officially reached the point of being the most ignorant, ineptly-operated sports organization in the history of forever...

EDIT: And now I see where Kevin Durant has elected to enter free agency. This can't possibly be, since he is "owned" by the Warriors. He can only leave when they "sell" him to another team...

Now to make my return to the site with my best success. Another unpopular opinion I have- Chick-Fil-A is extremely overpraised. I love Chick-Fil-A, don't get me wrong, but it's not like chicken is the Second Coming of Christ.

I have to agree, I think Chick-Fil-A is over-ratted.... But they make a great egg biscut.

"Who is the best Prime Minister we've had?"
"Teddy Roosevelt."
"He's not even Australian."
"Teddy Roosevelt can walk into any conversation he likes, punch up everyone and then leave on a horse."




I have a feeling that if Teddy Roosevelt, Chuck Norris, Mr T, and Martin Skrtel were ever in the same room, the universe would have imploded.

Especially if they're on the same team!

But in all honesty, Teddy'd probably be raising hell over how massive and unregulated we've allowed companies like Google and Facebook to get. He'd probably tear them all down with his bare hands.

Juan Pablo Montoya is better driver than Daniel Suarez in NASCAR Cup Series.
Reasons:
Montoya win Rookie of the Year, Suarez not
Montoya make the chase for the Cup, Suarez not
Suarez wasted Joe Gibbs and Stewart Haas Equipment.
Montoya has 2 wins in Cup, Suarez not.
Definitely Daniel Suarez is a NASCAR Bust.

Mince Pies are lovely.

Admittedly in the 21st Century we need to make the distinction between a meat pie and a mince pie because eejits and dolts dinnae know the difference between minced meat and minced fruit.
Mince Pies are always fruit now (usually currants or raisins etc.) and almost always shortcrust pastry.

Anyhoo, I found mince pies in a shop with sloes and currants where they'd all been soaked in Sloe Gin and they were lovely.

If you dinnae like mince pies, then you need your head examined by a phrenologist - you pie hating weirdo.

Bathurst 1000 > Southern 500 > Daytona 500

All that Daytona can throw at someone is The Big One. Darlington throws in where the track itself is trying to bite you. Bathurst also throws in wildlife.
