Also odd considering the industry is notably right-wing.

Surprised NASCAR, the whitest sport in the world, isn't further along on the right.

You may be surprised to know that the age demographic for WWE's flagship show in the USA is now 50+. It's also very popular with hispanics, black and historically low income families, with a large cross-over appeal with basketball (NBA) and european soccer. Kids in America are now all playing soccer (partially also due to parents being worried about concussions), which could be a problem for the NFL as interest from the younger generation declines.

It's telling that sports long regarded as resolutely American (baseball, NASCAR) are not resonating whatsoever with the younger generation. NASCAR is slowly dying on its arse with low attendance and low TV ratings, but it's also another sport that you've got to dedicate hours and hours to watch.

It must be difficult being a NASCAR driver. All the drivers are pulling right but the cars only turn left.

Just change the title to “Trump’s a fuckwit” and that’ll cover the rest of his presidency.

1,100 overdoses in a year, in a town of ~50,000, is a horrific statistic.

"I think it's fake news," Mr Trump told Forbes, "but if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests. And I can tell you who is going to win."


I think we all know who would win.

Tillerson should accept but only if it is done now and on live TV.

Has this entire thing started when Trump took one of those fake online IQ tests that always says you could get into Mensa?

For good measure, Obama and Clinton should also participate.
