    I'm actually rather surprised that South Park was ever allowed on Chinese streaming platforms in the first place. Of course, I suppose it does make fun of America's rubes a lot...

    The NBA is looking really bad in this cycle.

    The NBA said they respect their employees right to speech and then basically gargled Xi’s balls.

    The Chinese replied, “**** your free speech. We’re canceling all NBA broadcasts.” I wish I were exaggerating.

    Kipchoge ran 26.2 miles in under 2 hours yesterday. First human to run the distance in under 2 hours.

    However, it's my understanding it doesn't count as a marathon world record. While yesterday was awesome to be sure, I'd like to see him make it an official world record.

    Yeah, having 42 pacers rotate in and out, having a bike leading you as a wind block, and otherwise creating artificially perfect conditions isn't going to qualify you for a world record.

    Pour one out for the 11' 8" in Durham, NC. City council got the railroad to agree to raise the bridge to 12' 4".

    My guess is that 12 ft 4 will still provide a significant amount of entertainment. Plenty of those trucks contracted by a foot or more.

    From the "No sh**, what were you expecting?" department...

    Lori Loughlin fears she may go to prison.

    No matter how long her sentence is (and it will likely be as little as possible), they need to hit these fu**ers where it hurts. From here to eternity, every single penny Lori Loughlin (and everyone else in this scandal) and their estate would earn in royalties should now be earmarked to USC (or the respective universities for the other celebs) for a scholarship program for the admittance of actual deserving kids.

    Fight on for old $C,
    The halfback draws a salary.
    The ends have all been fired.
    They've been no good since they were hired.
    No need to enroll,
    Education's never our goal,
