    Yeah as long as there is money there and Trump hasn't conceded I can't see how or why they would close the market.

    1.04 backers are just buying money from people who want to free up their cash.

      Haven't really had a look at the masters, been mostly sulking that golf is over here and watching the election.

      I'm thinking my stable will be DJ, Webb, Sheffler.

                    Odd, its not like he has anything to be uncomfortable about here. I'd been hoping to hear him make sense of the covid mumbers and trends for me but he's gone and has kind of erased his history

                      Maybe Hitch could contact him through the prof grapevine? Last thing I remember was them thinking of meeting up for coffee in DCU.

                                          Trump is no idiot.

                                          As Raoul said today, he's a shrewd political operater.

                                          He planned this whole scenario. The ultimate back up plan. He has the power right now to totally destabilise the USA with his words.

                                          Watch him admit defeat and walk away unscathed.

                                            Really, he deleted all his posts?

                                            Meant to post the other day about him, wondering where he was.

                                              Trump is truly the gift that keep on giving on twitter.

                                                  So i mentioned back in February that I'd applied as a mature student to DCU to study History and Geography. Then covid hit and I kind of gave up on everything but got accepted some time in June and started college in October. 5 weeks in now and it's going well. Everything being done online which means I can keep working part time. Work are being cool with things, pretty much letting me work what I can and just fill in a time sheet to submit and get paid.

                                                  As luck would have it I got loads of advice off Hitch and he ended up back working in DCU so that should lead to a coffee date when students are allowed back on campus guess it shows its who ya know at times.

                                                  I'm enjoying it way more than I thought I would and actually look forward to assignments. Not too bad for a lad that dropped out of.school at 15 and has spent the intervening years bouncing from dead end job to dead end job.

                                                  Anyway, that's my pointless update. Wp all on the Biden bets, seems a decent amount was won overall.

                                                        That doesn't mean he's a complete idiot. You don't become the US president if you're a complete idiot. You just don't.

                                                        He is a black belt in how to get ahead by fucking people.

A decent lad like yourself dobs will end up inspiring thousands of kids, give them direction, inspire them to go on to do great things and live fulfilling lives.

                                                                    Buddy of mine had a traveller in his class last year, Neddy. Chap couldn't read or write and was mercilessly made fun of as our friend tells it.
                                                                    Anyway, my buddy spends extra time with the chap, after class, before class, helping him read and write and one of the big things the kid wanted was to be able to write his name, or sign his name or something.

                                                                    So buddy commits to it. Head down, hard work, and give it a good rattle to teach the kid.

Generally I have all those tasks done whilst IPB is still saying 'working' before it eventually loads the home page.

This thread is obviously worth any amount of time to load though. I appreciate all the effort that goes into the upkeep of the site and would be more than happy to throw in a few quid to find a better solution.

                                                                                                            So, a question for those with more political nous than me. I was curious last night and there is an Article 4 in the 25th Amendment of the US Constitution that would seemingly allow a President to be removed from office if he is "unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office." Now i believe that it is probably meant to be used more if the President was medically incapacitated but essentially it allows the VP, Cabinet & i think the Speaker to remove him.

                                                                                                            I believe that he's not going to concede the election, he is going to continue to challenge the election legally, he is going to forego the running of the country and who knows what "dangerous" decisions he will make over the next 75 days. He is likely IMO to drastically lose the support of his party and less ardent supporters. All in all, there may be grounds to incapacitate him politically. Pelosi would certainly love to. I don't know about Pence but would have to think he is done with him too plus it might prove very good for him politically if he was to step in and "save" the country. Plus he gets to be president. I would guess most of the cabinet wouldn't mind either.

                                                                                                            So is the above pure madness or if not, what price is Pence to be the next POTUS?

                                                                                                            Comment

Generally I have all those tasks done whilst IPB is still saying 'working' before it eventually loads the home page.

I didn't even know he felt all that Irish beyond the vague sense that a lot of Americans do. But he proper feels it. Like his chosen secret service moniker is Celtic. This comment here to the BBC. It's rather nice really in a very American way the extent to which an old-ish family connection holds such importance to him and loads of others. And then, of course, Irish Philly comes good for him in the end.
