|Apr-02-16|| ||technical draw: <After the Wisconsin primary there is effectively a two week break before the New York Primary, held on April 19. There has been a bevy of misinformation about New York on the internet. Yes there is a rule that states the statewide winner, if over 50 percent of the vote, receives all of the statewide delegates. That does not mean, however, that the candidate gets all 95 of New York’s delegates. The statewide pool is only 14 delegates. The rest are awarded proportionally, with a 20 percent threshold in each congressional district. The reason deals with the congressional districts, of which New York has 27. The winner of a congressional district with over 50 percent does receives all three delegates. It is therefore possible that Cruz or Kasich would receive NY delegates, even if Trump won over 50 percent in the state. >|
Whew! Thank you. That clarifies everything.
|Apr-02-16|| ||technical draw: In a list of anxiety symptoms I found: Fear of Impending Doom.|
Thank you, thank you. That is MY contribution to psychiatry. I had never heard it used until I coined it about 10 years ago.
|Apr-03-16|| ||playground player: <technical draw> <fear of impending doom>|
|Apr-03-16|| ||technical draw: <pp>. Yes. Either as a result of use of medications like benzodiazepines or opioids or from withdrawal from same.|
|Apr-03-16|| ||TheFocus: I thought Charlie Brown came up with that. He was under the care of Dr. Van Pelt.|
|Apr-04-16|| ||technical draw: Dr. Van Pelt charges 5 cents for a visit. My insurance company won't cover that.|
|Apr-04-16|| ||WannaBe: <TD> Hey, according to the latest Leaked Panama Papers, you're worth $20.00, surely you can afford a lousy nickel!|
|Apr-04-16|| ||technical draw: <WannaBe> I was worth $20.00 when I signed up for chess games 13 years ago. Thanks to lousy investment advice I received here I am now $1,238,788.00 in the hole. By the way, how did you know I was hiding in Panama?|
|Apr-04-16|| ||WannaBe: There's nothing wrong with my advice to you to buy Enron. I still own 5 Trillion shares of the company.|
|Apr-04-16|| ||Jim Bartle: What did you pay for those shares?|
|Apr-04-16|| ||WannaBe: 0.000001 per share.|
|Apr-05-16|| ||technical draw: Well, my mistake of not taking out my $500 from the ATM machine in time and watching it being swallowed back in is turning into a Frankenstein. I have not been able to solve the problem with my local bank so I decided to escalate (i am not without influence in the banking industry ).|
People are going to think that there's $500 million involved because I have decided to call the bank president and the commissioner of the banking commission of the House of Representatives, a friend who goes back 50 years.
I never realized how influential I am and how many people in high places I know.
I gave the local officer plenty of time to solve a simple problem. It is now time to bring in the heavy guns. It doesn't matter if it is just $500, it might one day be $500 million of other people's money that is being mis-handled.
So I have taken off my shuffling shoes and decided to go to war. I could almost savor it! First stop the banks executive vice-president.
|Apr-05-16|| ||technical draw: Hurray! Got my money! It pays to have connections. However it shouldn't have gotten to that since it was a relatively easy problem to fix. I guess it's true: It's not what you know but who you know.|
|Apr-05-16|| ||Deus Ex Alekhina: They heard you were a part of the CeeGee.com gang and they caved in.|
|Apr-05-16|| ||TheFocus: You should have given that job to the Troop.
We would have gotten you a little interest to go with it.
|Apr-05-16|| ||technical draw: With my newly acquired $500 I will now redraw the mother of all gerrymandered congressional districts, Chicago's 4th:|
|Apr-06-16|| ||Deus Ex Alekhina: In exchange for my helpful advice (see my two previous posts in this forum), I will humbly accept a 10% gratuity of the $500. You're welcome.|
|Apr-06-16|| ||technical draw: Sorry <Deus>. Strangely your 10% is still stuck in the machine.|
|Apr-22-16|| ||technical draw: The greatest stand-up comic ever:
|Apr-27-16|| ||technical draw: <Jun-20-15
technical draw: Carly Fiorina will be the next president of the US. You read it here first.>
I meant to say vice-president.
|Apr-28-16|| ||Mr. President: I don't need a bleeding VP!|
|Apr-28-16|| ||technical draw: Sorry, Mr. President, but I have to underwrite you so everyone will know about my psychic abilities.|
|Apr-28-16|| ||diceman: <Mr. President:
I don't need a bleeding VP!>
That explains Joe Biden.
|Apr-29-16|| ||technical draw: <If a winning Presidential candidate dies or becomes incapacitated between the counting of electoral votes in Congress and the inauguration, the Vice President elect will become President, according to Section 3 of the 20th Amendment.>|
A weird second chance for my prediction. (of course Cruz will have to beat Trump then Clinton but that's not farfetched )
|May-13-16|| ||technical draw: If I found a magic lamp and the genie would grant me just one wish I would wish for world peace. Sure, and the moon is made out of green cheese.|
