    In other equally important news, I just took a massive dump and my pants truly do fit better.

    Re: Another big donation for the Baylor football stadium

    Think of how many tarps they can buy with all that money!


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    In summary, a bunch of lawyers enriched themselves based on the losses of others. As a result of that, Baylor gets a new stadium while the true victims get victimized again by the greedy lawyers that profited off their losses.

    Please help my understand why this is something to brag about.

    All the plaintiffs got a few hundred bucks, while the 5 lawyers take home a cool billion a piece.

    Considering how shady Baylor's athletic department is it is only fitting that their new tarp holder is funded by some class action ambulance chasers.
