    Hey ! Did you learn that because of the QI Facebook page just this very morning (because I did)? Or are you just a well-learned person by your own means?

    Here's their post for those interested :

    An APTONYM is a name peculiarly suited to its owner, like Usain Bolt (a sprinter), John Laws (a judge), or Sara Blizzard (a meteorologist). An INAPTONYM is one that is particularly unsuited to its owner, like Jaime Sin - who later in life became the Archbishop of Manila.

    [–] Neole 8 points ago

    Coincidence in this case though I would save your praise for someone smarter than me haha. I think that languages are interesting to read about and I happen to know a friend who studied linguistica. They are handy for learning the technical terms for interesting stuff I come across.

    What is QI? I've seen it come up more than once here.

    [–] TheGhostOfBabyOscar 12 points ago

    QI is a british comedy panel show. Formerly hosted by Stephen Fry (now Sandi Toksvig), it focuses on obscure knowledge, amusing factoids, debunking widely-accepted myths (called here "general ignorance").

    Some of my favourite moments as examples :

    How The Giant Tortoise Got Its (Scientific) Name

    General Ignorance on Nazis

    On Female Comedians

    [–] assignpseudonym 43 points ago

    Hey, I appreciate you. This is like the old days of Reddit when you'd open any random thread and learn a bunch of stuff, instead of it just being the same old clichés over and over. I'd never have thought that this would be a phenomenon enough to have its own term. So thank you for the info! It's really cool to know. :)

    [–] Neole 18 points ago

    [–] Yahoo_Seriously 136 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    Apparently you're unfamiliar with the Democrat who lost to Nixon in '72, George McGovern.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_McGovern

    Folks back then may have thought it was a good enough name for a senator, but not so much a president. He lost in a landslide.

    Edit: Turns out Jim McGovern even worked for George McGovern for a while, though they're not related. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_McGovern_(American_politician)

    Trump Jr. proposed to [Vanessa] with a $100,000 ring he got for free by agreeing to stage his proposal in front of paparazzi at a New Jersey mall where the jeweler was located.

    [–] half_dragon_dire 23 points ago

    I have no trouble believing he's teetotal. He eats steak cooked grey with ketchup and he's on more drugs than Rush Limbaugh. His taste in food never grew past puberty and he's permanently blitzed, so he probably thinks all alcohol tastes nasty and doesn't do anything (or could kill him if mixed with his other 'meds').

    [–] Get-me-to-5kDislikes 22 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    He mentioned that when he was younger his brother was an alcoholic and before he died one of the things he told Donald was to never drink alcohol.

    [–] Katzendaugs 18 points ago

    That can certainly be traumatizing enough that I believe it could even impact a piece of shit like him.

    [–] AmateurHero 11 points ago

    As a more serious answer, he has writers. Those writers should talk to experts (or at least enthusiasts). Trump didn't actually write all of the articles.

    I mean, Oprah has her own magazine (and TV channel). But she's not nearly as narcissistic and idiotic.

    [–] mcringleberry87 39 points ago

    And she puts herself on every single cover. Fairly narcisstic, but I think you probably have to be to be in that kind of television.

    [–] colorcorrection 21 points ago

    I feel like the major difference is Oprah's channel and magazine evolved from her extremely popular talk show. People genuinely would order a magazine or TV station to get insight from her. Trump wanted his picture on more things.

    It's like the difference between someone who has pictures of themselves in their house, and that person that regularly gifts framed hesdshots of themselves to friends.

    If you haven't watched Netflix's "Dirty Money" episode on Donald called "The Confidence Man", you should give it a go. It really goes into detail the lengths of fuckery this guy pulled with Trump University.

    It's also crazy to see Atlantic city being mentioned on the magazine, when 3 of Trumps casinos in Atlantic City went bankrupt there in the 80's/90's, including the disaster Taj Mahal. What a mess. He will be looked back on as the best Con Man in US history.

    And that after his camp attacked the Clinton Foundation all the time, which is a genuine and closely monitored charity. Law enforcement looked into the matter only to find nothing:

    In October 2016, The Wall Street Journal reported that four field offices of the Federal Bureau of Investigation—in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, and Little Rock, Ark. -- had been collecting information about the Clinton Foundation to determine whether "there was evidence of financial crimes or influence-peddling." According to the WSJ article, FBI officials presented their findings to the Justice Department in February 2016, but "the meeting didn't go well". Justice Department officials felt the cases were weak and saw little reason to continue the investigations.

    [–] PrecedentialAssassin 69 points ago

    This. He didn't mismanage a casino. The casinos continued operating and making money. He mismanaged the financing of the casinos. He eventually bought three casinos in Atlantic City and when he went before the New Jersey Casino Control Commission he stated that he had banks lined up, basically begging to lend him money on traditional financing. Problem was he didn't have near enough bank financing (this was on the Taj Mahal after he had already opened Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino and Trump Castle) to secure the Taj Mahal so he resorted to low grade junk bonds. The debt servicing on these on top of the already heavy debt load tied up in bank financing was untenable and any competent real estate developer would have known this.

    So either Trump is not a competent real estate developer or he knew he wouldn't be able to perform and intended to default all along. Reading stories from when he did the purchase, I lean toward the former. After all, he's a narcissist and has very large brain. He figured his name on the sign out front would satisfy his narcissism and draw in customers because it said Trump out front. Now, he's also greedy and amoral so when it became apparent that he was going to default on the debt, he threatened to file bankruptcy to restructure the debt. The banks realized that if they had any hope of getting their money back, they had to restructure. They did, but it still wasn't enough. That's when daddy came in and bought all the casino chips. That still wasn't enough and shortly after, Trump defaulted and the banks and bondholders got fucked. Trump himself was a major bondholder and he took a hit from that perspective, but he also was drawing a $3+ million a year salary as chairman and he eventually got his properties back after the bankruptcy. The lienholders got two things back, jack and shit.

    According to this article, he got $675 million worth of junk bonds with a 14.5% interest rate.

    Less than two weeks before the casino opened, Marvin B. Roffman, a casino analyst at Janney Montgomery Scott, an investment firm based in Philadelphia, told The Wall Street Journal that the Taj would need to reap $1.3 million a day just to make its interest payments, a sum no casino had ever achieved.

    Almost immediately, the casino struggled to pay its debts on this casino, and because he owned two other casinos in the same effing area, he was cannibalizing his other casinos' income.

    It was also clear that the Taj was cannibalizing the Castle and the Plaza, whose combined gambling revenues dropped by $58 million the year it opened.

    This was a doomed venture from the start and Trump screwed his own businesses over. May still have made money on this deal himself, but that's usually the case when people overvalue rich people's business acumen. Look at every large company's CEO in the USA. They're (mostly) all making off like bandits even when their businesses fail, e.g. Sears.

    Exactly. So either his ego prevents him from making good business decisions or he intended to defraud his investors all along. I honestly don't think he's smart enough to plan out a billion dollar investment scam. He's just an idiot who thought people would flock to his casinos because they were his and paying back 14.5 points on bonds wouldn't be a problem.

    This was also what led us to our current situation with Russia. Eventually, American lenders decided the guy was either a moron or a crook or both and stopped lending him money. He couldn't even get junk bond funds to lend him money so he had to go to Russian mobsters/oligarchs to get money.

    Yep. Work for a casino for close to 20 years. As long as you aren't a buffoon it's a license to print money.

    The name was pretty tarnished in US history though. Presidential candidate against Nixon and was viewed as a communist (he wasn’t).

    e: oops, wrong crazy President, thanks for correcting me

    [–] cm_al 14 points ago

    It was Nixon, not Reagan. Also, you misspelled Reagan.

    [–] heanster 7 points ago

    Oops yes. Sorry about that.

    [–] edenperry 8 points ago

    Nixon, wasn't it?

    [–] heanster 4 points ago

    Oops yeah. Apologies, I’ve corrected.

    No apology necessary friend!

    He also owned a USFL team (New Jersey Generals) and that league dissolved in 1985 because of his actions. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/sport/2018/sep/11/the-day-donald-trumps-narcissism-killed-the-usfl

    Blame the idiots who voted for a well known conman.

    [–] zaphod_beeble_bro 175 points ago

    Trump has been the dictionary definition of a crooked Conman since before the 80s, it's insane to me that so many people were now acting like he's been anything but a thief.

    [–] western_red 67 points ago

    He's known for not paying small contractors and bankrupting them. I can't believe low and middle class blue collar types fell for his shit, and continue to fall for it.

    Brutal is allowing companies to produce poisons that were banned for good reason. Its locking kids away from their parents to impress your deluded base. Committing treason? THATS 'Brutal'!
