The minimum was set way too high. Everything is auctions and short sells right now, and people are looking for a minimum of 35% off 2008 listing prices.


I could short sell that home for 2.749 million in a week. At auction I bet it goes for around 2.495 million.

Lets get logical here.

That's where it gets a lil more difficult. An embryo is not exactly a human life yet. Those who are strongly against stem cell research say it's tantamount to murder, and those who advocate it are basically murderers. Yet if researching on those embryos could hypothetically yield a cure to cancer, would those who opposed it have a hand in murdering everyone who dies of cancer each year?

Plus, it's not exactly like scientists are waiting in dark alleys for pregnant women to walk by, punch em in the stomach and remove their baby for research.

I can't speak for anyone else, I think every situation is different, but if the positives outweigh the negatives, if it's for the "greater good", then do it. If I was going to spend the rest of my life as a vegetable with slim odds of recovery, I'd want em to pull the plug and harvest my organs for those who needed em. Because my life is not important enough to preserve at the cost of others. Hell, if I was told right now that my death could somehow save/improve many other lives, I'd gladly say "Take this life, I'm right here" But that would have to be a substantial amount of lives to off myself right now, as I'm still young and would like to think I could improve a few lives over the course of my own.

Give the black man a chance, for once.

Yeah guys come on.. give conVICKt a chance. Give him a chance cause he could make more money in a year then everyone on ISH combine.
He had a 130 MILL contract. He shouldn't be worrying about getting money for his house. He has no reason to be broke.. f*ck him and all that he is for

What does that even mean? When you joined life the colored folks like Mike Vick would piss you off? Or when you joined ISH and made 18 posts in damn near a year and therefore clearly know the skin color of each poster in this thread? Cute gimmick account though.

Without looking back, as far as I saw/know, Dasher is the only poster in this thread eligible for membership in the NAACP.

I think pretty much all credibility you have goes out the window when you become the next "Puppy Hitler."

I'm sorry but I guess it's just me, I've always been the type of sports fan who judges pepole on what they bring to the table for their teams not from what goes on behind the scenes.

Yeah, respectable opinion, but, you can't really blame people. Nobody thinks of O.J. Simpson as a football player anymore. That's like the fifth thing that comes to mind.

You're a ****ing sicko. It doesn't matter what anyone does, as long as they produce on the field?


Vick was never going to do anything more then sell jerseys anyways. Terrible quarterback.

Puppy's need a Hitler. Dog overpopulation is a serious problem in America. There needs to be final solution to this problem, Vick was on the right track.
