    I don't think they can or will. Who do you give up? They don't need him, but as a dodgers fan I'd like to have him there. I can pretty much cheer for a guy like that anywhere but at the Yankees though.

    After i went 2-2 and struck a guy out pitching. We won 14-3. They would be afraid to be in the same state of a team I sat the bench for.

    Sounds like the competition down there is all but non-existent

    Looking. It was a really flat pitch that started a little inside and kind of floated over. Questionable call at best.

    It’s there. We are just playing in the lower so it’s not so great. But that’s just one team. Haven’t played again. I’m missing this week because I’m traveling.

    I think it’s called Little Elm Park. It’s a city league. I don’t think there are any private parks around here like cincy has.

    I had never played at a private park till I moved up here. Some good some bad.

    Yeah that lake is huge. One of the largest man made lakes in the country I think. Or I made that up. Could go either way.

    "One of the largest" is pretty subjective, so you are probably good.

    you want to be sick? if you bought $5k worth of bitcoin two years ago at around $350 per, you could sell it today for close to $200k. It peaked just above 15,000 dollars today.

    it's all e-money, and it's scary, and will probably be gone overnight.

    when the masses tell you that you are doing something wrong, do the opposite

    I'm working on getting my house remodeled. At some point we were going to need the cash for the remodel. I felt bad for "gambling" $2K on BitCoin. Whoops.

    then again, you didn't lose it since you didn't have it.

    if I didn't spend it one something, I would have spent on something else I definitely didn't need

    I hate people. The stupidity of the unwashed masses just oppresses me and disillusions me unless I try capitalize on it, then they get an ounce of brain cells and I don't end up a millionaire. They thwart me at every turn.

    Herts, the beautiful thing about Bitcoin and buying and selling it...the government doesn't have to know

    So...what "Capital Gain" are you talking about?

    Are the servers overseas or something?

    They're going to know when I pay cash for a house with an indoor pool and a batting cage out back.

    Phrase it how you want, I don't have $13K that I should have.

    you know everything has a paper trail, or an electronic paper trail. you can't buy it and sell it without it being documented SOMEWHERE

    it will get standardized soon. I'm not getting into any of it, even with it projected to go to 30

    You rarely do any actual work out there so it would be irresponsible to report that income
