    I still have my release day copy of reach for 360. Unsure between it and 3 which one is truly the best.

    Of the two scenarios you provided, neither is better or worse than the other. any choice made is at most a matter of personal preference.

    Does the Special Olympics profit? 

     Non-profit.  They are trying to expand, though, into more schools and that is part of why having a budget set aside for it is important, in my opinion.  Sure, some nice person could donate the money needed to expand, but that's always a toss up and not guaranteed.  Again, my opinion, but I think programs for special needs students need more funding and expansion, in general.

     Interesting. I'm usually pretty against leagues and organizations that don't profit in professional sports being funded by an outside source to stay alive  (WNBA) but this is a different situation where id say I contradict my own belief and believe it should be funded. 

     

    Couldn't the Olympic Committee just fund it using some of the profits from the Olympics though? I couldn't find the cost of operation so i'm curious if that would be possible?

     I could be 100% wrong but i don’t think the Olympic Committee has ties with the Special Olympics so it would basically have to be a donation from the Olympic committee. 

     @Misk is correct. They are not affiliated at all.

     Yeah I realize that. The NBA in theory doesn’t have to continue to support the WNBA financially but do it for the same reason that could be applied here. I mean it in terms of a charitable move if the cost of operation isn’t that crazy.

     

     Fundamental difference: The NBA CREATED the WNBA. 

     Yes but has the same level of motivation and incentive to keep it running that the Olympic committee would have here.

     No. See, the NBA has an affiliation with the WNBA. some of its owners own franchises in each league. The Special Olympics on the other hand, and the IOC have ZERO connection beyond both using the word "Olympics" in their name. They are completely 100% separate organization with zero overlap. So no, the IOC has and wouldnt in this situation develop an incentive to fund the Special Olympics.

    You’d almost think the topic of conversation was about how awful wonka was and how much he was not missed. Glad the spam gloves are off this week.

     If he actually wanted a conversation about those topics, he would look back at the threads that were started on those topics. Troll threads deserve troll responses.

     The bible says to treat others the way you want to be treated.

     I'm gonna go and assume you mean the christian bible given that most of the time it's christians that simplify to just "bible". I hope your morality isn't entirely based on such a book, because there are some truly terrible things in those works. (i.e. condoning slavery).

    They had some of the events of IW in it. When Thanos was arriving they had it up on their monitors and what not but that was basically it. Because of that i wouldn't be surprised if they briefly alluded to it in the same way.

     You're right. The confederacy alluded to Thanos' impending arrival at the end of AOS' 5th season, which aired AFTER Infinity War so I forgot about it.

    Mueller? Nothing. Trump? Innocent. Avenatti? Arrested. 2020? You bet!

    Mueller: Only if you ignore all the work farmed out to pardon-proof jurisdictions, and the fact Barr's summary cannot be taken at face value and we still await the release of the report.

    Avenatti: nothing to do with Trump. Surprised you went there.

     

    2020: LMFAO.

    She is an idiot who shouldn't be in the position she is. 

     Unfortunately when the then-majority (and i guess still in the senate) party becomes filled with sycophants who are too focused on getting reelected and depend on the lemmings in Trump's base to do it, they just abdicate their oversight responsibility and accept any nomination. 

    To be clear, I'm not saying all Trump supporters are lemmings, I'm saying that SOME and in the calculus of elections enough of them are so tied to trump that republican legislators fear trump's distain. Which itself is an inversion of the roles of the offices.

    I'll be very curious to see if AOS mentions the decimation at all. Part of me assumes that when they decided to bring it back for a 6th they waited till may was so it could be entirely afterward.
