if his heirs were to put that ugly-ass, unseaworthy monstrosity up for sale, something tells me it would fetch a lot less.
Just call it an iYacht and you'll have people camping on the street for days to buy one.
The weight of NFL players has been increasing steadily.

In 2009 - 394
See a trend here? It's also creating health issues for active players and retired players, and is causing a shorter lifespan. This isn't your grandfather's game of fast players with leather helmets and no padding. This is a game of fat men in hard plastic armor doing a lot of blocking.

Meet the new boss - same as the old boss
The other country has a dictator you despise? Don't mess there, it isn't your problem. It has a dictator you like who's going to be overthrown? Don't mess there, it isn't your problem. There are troops marching into your borders. Oh, now you go and mess there.
How hard can that be?
I'm all for letting countries stay to themselves, but why does a dictator need to step on your lawn before he gets a response? Didn't most of Europe take that stance during WWII?
Germany annexed Austria, violating the Treaty of Versailles and St. Germain
Germany invaded Czechoslovakia
Italy conquered Albania
Germany attacked Poland
A two-phase art competition?
>> the first phase will be about adding
>> the second phase
I'm seeing way too many similarities for comfort.

Something about apples not falling too far from the tree comes to mind.
