    [–] Is Lebron the same species as the rest of us? malus545 1 points ago in youseeingthisshit

    why dunks get these reactions

    Dunking the ball in itself isn't a feat for these guys.

    But the number one priority of defenses is not to give up dunks and the number one priority of offenses is to get dunks and so it's very satisfying when you get by a defender and throw down an open dunk like that. Pair it with the insane vertical Lebron has along with the power he dunks it with, you get hype.

    Elbows are typically illegal, but Lebron was already by his defender who caught one in the dome because Lebron had already gotten past him so I guess the refs felt it was "incidental" contact.

    [–] Adventureland building $6 million roller coaster malus545 1 points ago in Iowa

    I loved all of them when I was a kid 20 years ago when I didn't need a chiropractor after each ride.

    [–] Adventureland building $6 million roller coaster malus545 1 points ago in Iowa

    Maybe time to tear down the Outlaw, Tornado, and Dragon. Those are so herky-jerky I get whiplash if I try riding any of them. The Monster is the GOAT though.

    Kobe is far more greater than lebron

    LOL okay buddy.

    [–] Trump picks William Barr as next Attorney General malus545 3 points ago in politics

    Did Trump meet this Barr at H.W.'s funeral or what? It's too big of a coincidence that H.W. dies and a few days later Trump nominates H.W's attorney general as his own.

    I think Planet Fitness is the cheapest place in town.

    [–] Iowa sees high voter turnout in midterm election malus545 8 points ago in Iowa

    What are you even talking about? YOU DIDN'T NEED ID TO VOTE IN THE 2018 ELECTION.

    [–] Iowa sees high voter turnout in midterm election malus545 19 points ago in Iowa

    You know that voter ID doesn't go into effect until 2019, right? Sure you don't. I wouldn't expect any better from you.

    [–] wOw 50% iS sO uNfAiR tHo!!! malus545 2 points ago in LateStageCapitalism

    There is no 37% effective tax rate. 37% is the top MARGINAL tax rate. Everything OVER $500,000 is taxed at 37%. If you make $500,000 you have an effective rate of 30.1%. If you make $35,000 you have an effective tax rate of 11.5%.

    How much of Bezos' money did Bezos earn?

    [–] wOw 50% iS sO uNfAiR tHo!!! malus545 18 points ago in LateStageCapitalism

    Looks like 20% is the top capital gains rate.

    [–] wOw 50% iS sO uNfAiR tHo!!! malus545 2419 points ago in LateStageCapitalism

    The fucked up thing is that 37% starts at 500k/year and doesn't go any higher. Don't get me wrong, if you're making over 500k/year, you're doing fine, but why the fuck doesn't it increase for the people making $2 mil/year or $10 mil/year or $100 mil/year or Jeff fucking Bezos?

    [–] Moving to IC from Florida. How in the actual fuck do you drive on snow/ice? Interested in how you guys winterize your tires/cars. malus545 4 points ago in IowaCity

    Not true. There is a pretty big difference in traction between snow tires and all-season tires. I don't think it makes you nervous to want a nice set of snow tires if you're driving a car full of kids around.

    [–] Do not Rent to these people. malus545 2 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago) in IowaCity

    Sorry, can't let you use real names of non-public figures. If you have a news article that has their names, that will work.

    [–] Lawyers of Reddit, what was your “oh shit” moment in court? malus545 9 points ago * (lasted edited 16 days ago) in AskReddit

    reasonably certain

    Okay, bud. I'm reasonably certain that your reasonable certainty is not very reliable.

    I've never believed that rhetoric around "Don't feed the troll"

    Well I do. They say stupid things just to get attention and responses. When you give them attention and responses they win. And I'm a mod so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    [–] Where to sell/donate my military clothing? malus545 4 points ago in IowaCity

    A few other friends and I thought that getting a few vets or active duty servicemen to go to his house and act like he has been drafted and needs to gather his stuff and go with them now would shed some perspective and scare him a little bit.

    Maybe the dumbest plan I've ever heard of and will achieve exactly the opposite of your goal.

    [–] Mellow Mushroom owner arrested after slapping employee’s butt malus545 8 points ago in IowaCity

    Guys, this is a brand new account and this post was a clear troll. Your troll radars need adjusted.
