    Re: Usain Bolt of BDC = Mployee8

    Dude why do you start a thread everyday to argue with someone to try to tell everyone someone is wrong about something or you were right about something ?   

    Not taking up for Mployee,  but he didn't say once the Celtics pull out the win.  He said "if" the Celtics win.

    You said what will be my excuse once the Celts pull out a win against the Blazers. I said the Celts didn't have enough horses. Was I right or not?

    It's a simple question.

    Re: Usain Bolt of BDC = Mployee8

    "Give the epochs into which U.S. History is divided"  Pre-Bird, post-Bird.

    "Name and define the Fundamental Rules of Arithmetic"  Definition: Arithmetic is a means by which you use numbers to your advantage, whether right or wrong.  Rules of arithmetic: Banks: make bad debts, get bailed out.  Average citizen: make bad debts, go bankrupt and get bad credit rating.  Addition by subtraction - trading Danny Ainge from the Celtics.  Multiplication - one (ex-) guard (D.Ainge) goes into a room and five guards come out.  Division - when Allen Iverson goes into a lockerroom, any lockerroom.  

     "Name and locate the principal trade centers of the U.S."  Memphis and Houston seem to make a lot of trades.

     "Describe the mountains of North America"  High, otherwise they wouldn't be mountains.

    "Tell what you can of the history of Kansas"   Kansas has no history, just dust.
