Bro, didnt you live in L.A. in the 80's / 90's?
For @enlytend, if she decides to come back:
Yes... in the 70's.... refresh my memory!
McGregor suffered his first professional TKO loss on Saturday in the main event of UFC 257 against Dustin Poirier. In the loss, the camera closed in on McGregor lying on the canvas and appearing to be out cold. He wasn't actually knocked unconscious, but in the age of social media, a screenshot is worth a thousand memes. And some of them were pretty great.
Dude! What the ....
Saw the fight yesterday. Conor and Poirier were +- even until that barrage of shots at the end.
@GILSAN think a la Trainspotting.. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas etc.
Young and stupid. Lived to tell about it.
Nice - is that part of the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition?
Three bronze sculptures have been installed as part of the 250th Anniversary of the encounter between Aboriginal Australians and the crew of the HMB Endeavour.
Can you tell me how many balls can you count?
Cricket: Three MASSIVE sixes into the crowd in the final over yesterday.
Melbourne Stars power-hitter Hilton Cartwright launched three massive sixes in the final over of the innings bowled by Jake Ball with each hit seemingly more powerful than the last.
Serena can juggle more than 3 balls. When she's on top form she adds 2 glasses of champagne to her juggling act!
WOW... how time flies... this baby was born 62 years ago!!!
Imagine being born in 1900
When you're 14

Soon after a global pandemic

You walk out alive and free
You're 20 years old.
At 29, you're going through a global economic crisis that started with the collapse of the New York Stock Exchange causing inflation, unemployment and hunger.
Nazists came to power at the age of 33
You're 39 when World War II starts

A baby born in 1985 thinks his grandparents have no idea how difficult life is,
and survived various wars and disasters.
A boy born in 1995 and today a 25 year old thinks it's the end of the world when his package from Amazon arrives after more than three days or doesn't get more than 15 ′′ likes ′′ for his photo posted on Facebook or Instagram...
In 2020 many of us live in comfort, we have access to various sources of home entertainment, and often we have more than we need.
But people complain about everything.
However, they have electricity, phone, food, hot water and a roof over their heads.
None of this existed before.
But humanity has survived far more tragic circumstances and never lost the joy of life.
Maybe it's time to be less selfish, stop complaining and crying.
My grandfather was born in 1900.
What he witnessed in his lifetime astounds me still.
I think men and women were made of tougher stuff then.
They just did what needed to be done and got on with life.
