Out of the Blue

The NBA Draft was last night, and I am still working on wrapping my head around the flurry of trades the Knicks made. But word is they escaped with passing mark. But this is the Knickerbockers we're talking about here, so you have to grade them on a curve. A passing mark for another franchise translates to an A+ for the Knicks.

Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.

Seriously though, I'll never understand why people wear black wetsuits. Sharks ambush there prey from behind or underneath - especially the latter for great whites. Looking up all they see is a black outline that is seal-like in nature. Why don't they mistake other sharks above them for prey? Because they're white or silver on the bottom. Seems like it would behoove people to wear white or silver wetsuits and the same color on the bottom of their surfboards and what not.
Surfboards and body boards have white bottoms. I don't think it prevents a surfer with their arms hanging off from having the shape of a turtle or seal. If you put a white object in front of the sun, it's still going to have a black silhouette.

I think the Knicks aren't getting enough credit those trades. 3 number one picks in your pocket for any one player is pretty damn good IMHO.

I looked out my back window for Tiger Sharks and all I can assume is that my backyard repels them because none can be found.
Unless of course they know to stay submerged.
None of the tagged tiger sharks were located here in the past 24 hours. Try again later. A shark's dorsal fin must breach the water's surface in order for the satellite transmitter to register its location.

Apologies, was in Steam Sale catatonia.

- jdreyer,
Maradona was an ass a good part of his life, then he became a junkie one.
With that lack of clarity he always was surrounded by leeches and yes men for the money.

No honest men telling him thruths or denying him vices for his health could survive among that mercenary group overriding outsiders.
Plus with his demigod status few contradicted his whimsies.
So, are they guilty, of course, but guilty of the national maladies.
It's a wonder he lived so much, and I'm thankful I won't have to hear his idiocies repeated as meaningful.

- Thanks Acleacius, launchers and Denuvos don't bother nor worry me at all.
I mostly can understand the obsession with those, but it's just alien to my interests.

Metallic Colors ie silver
To a shark, fish scales have a reflective, metallic appearance underwater. Anything a swimmer or diver wears that mimics such an appearance can attract sharks.
So only wear them if you want to get attacked.

Wiki: Drug abuse and health problems

From the mid-1980s until 2004, Maradona was addicted to cocaine. He allegedly began using the drug in Barcelona in 1983.[255] By the time he was playing for Napoli, he had a full-blown addiction, which interfered with his ability to play football.[256]

He was obese from the end of his playing career until undergoing gastric bypass surgery in a clinic in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, on 6 March 2005.

On 29 March 2007, Maradona was readmitted to a hospital in Buenos Aires. He was treated for hepatitis and effects of alcohol abuse and was released on 11 April, but readmitted two days later.[260] In the following days, there were constant rumours about his health, including three false claims of his death within a month.[261] After being transferred to a psychiatric clinic specializing in alcohol-related problems, Maradona was discharged on 7 May.[262] On 8 May, Maradona appeared on Argentine television and stated that he had quit drinking and had not used drugs in two and a half years.[263] During the 2018 World Cup match between Argentina and Nigeria, Maradona was shown on television cameras behaving extremely erratically, with an abundance of white residue visible on the glass in front of his seat in the stands. The smudges could have been fingerprints, and he later blamed his behaviour on consuming lots of wine. He was treated by paramedics after collapsing following Argentina's victory over Nigeria.
In January 2019, Maradona underwent surgery after a hernia caused internal bleeding in his stomach.[265]

An Argentine judge orders 8 to face a homicide trial in soccer star Maradona's death

Doctors, nurses and other medical staff who had soccer legend Diego Maradona in their care are now facing a homicide trial, after an Argentine judge granted prosecutors' request to advance the case against them.

Maradona died of heart failure and pulmonary edema in November of 2020. He had been recuperating from brain surgery, but instead of being in a hospital, was recovering at a home in the Buenos Aires suburbs — and prosecutors say Maradona's doctors and other caregivers should have known that he was at risk, and done more to save him.

You mean the corrupt government who doesn't do anything about it. It's such a shame. The Mexican people deserve better.
