Dude, the face the middle guy is doing is not the face of someone trying to be 'sinister'. LMAO

On the mildly diverting, the question has to be asked... are they specifically trying to look sinister?

The Orb will give them the power to finally defeat the free people's and the world shall fall.

Dude in the middle makes a face that reminds me more of Monty Python or something.

perhaps an early audition as skeksis for the upcoming dark crystal remake.

- The guy on the left seems to be embarressed to share energy with the two other guys

- The guy in the middle realizes that his energy isn't shared, it's fact depleting

- Trump is happily stealing their energy, what a bunch of bakas

 

What's this silly thing with glowing globes and chrystals? What's next? checking the milk from the cow? reading the future from the bottom of a coffee cup?

The guy on the left is Egypt's president Al-Sisi, he probably is embarrassed to share a globe with the other two. I'd forgive King Salman for looking a bit off, he's widely rumoured to have Alzheimer's Disease. Trump looks like prequel era Star Wars' Palpatine in a fat suit and wearing a ludicrous hair piece.

Saudi Arabia’s $20 billion wager with Blackstone is record-sized bet on U.S. infrastructure.

I meant to post this last week. The Great State on Tennessee, my home state, is now offering free college for qualifying state residents. You heard that correctly. If you are a citizen of the state of Tennessee of any age, you may attend college here tuition free. The requirements are that you have resided as a permanent resident of this state for one year. That you take enough classes to qualify as a pat time student. And that you maintain a 2.0 GPA. You mat then take any degree program offered at any community college for free, courtesy of the folks who buy lottery tickets. This state is as red as it gets. Except for just two counties and one congressional seat the Democrat Party controls nothing here. One wonders why this does not get more media attention?

Because the media is run for profit and stories about Trump holding a globe with a king will get more clicks and thus more ad revenue than free community college in Tennessee.

I always thought the entire point of community colleges is that they are as close to free as possible. Of course, here in the super expensive Bay Area, that isn't the reality.  :(

They're certainly inexpensive compared to a university, but tutition is still fairly expensive of you're making minimum wage and paying rent.

hmm.  gd sounds a bit like trump complaining 'bout media lack o' terrorism coverage.  is maybe not sooper convincing to use a cnn link to convince lack o' coverage, eh?

btw, the original TN program got plenty o' attention 2.5 years ago on these boards and elsewhere.

 

http://forums.obsidi...lege/?p=1555052

 

regardless, as much as we support these kinda programs, the tn approach would also get more attention if the numbers o' college graduates were better.  most stories proclaim how many folks attended college, but the numbers o' actual grads has been disappointing. need to get folks degrees as 'posed to simple getting 'em a bit o' college. am knowing amentep is annoyed by the misrepresentation o' the benefits o' a college education.  he is correct, but one needs be extreme myopic to ignore the correlation 'tween long-term monetary success in the US and the possession o' a college degree.  

 

HA! Good Fun!
