Troost Be Told

My name is Todd but my last name isn’t Troost. I am not a poser or an impersonator as well. In fact if there is a person with the name Todd Troost then I apologize for this. I chose the pen name Todd Troost because of my childhood story. I was not very eloquent when I was little. Maybe it was because I grew up in a home with dual language. English and Filipino. My dad being an American and my mom being a Filipino. I remember I often get confused with words or languages to use when I was growing up. In short, I had an s and th deficiency.

One day, I was accused of being part of a school riot. You know, one of those days when you were just in a wrong place at a wrong time? I was asked by our guidance counselor to tell only the truth – nothing more, nothing less. I shouted back at our counselor saying – “I am telling you the troost!”.

This will be one of the very honest and troostful site you will ever find online.

10 Reactions To The Question: Is Eminem Actually Gay?

10 Reactions To The Question Is Eminem Actually Gay

Will the real Marshall Mathers please come out?

A year ago, the Internet blew up after people started to see the opening segment of Sony’s The Interview. And why is that? Because, just like Seth Rogen’s character in the movie, people were tossed into waves of confusion and doubt: did Eminem really say he is gay?

Is Eminem actually gay? Repeat 1000 times. James Franco’s Dave Skylark, the famed late night show host in the film, looked pretty dumbfounded either. Yet, he caught himself and began clarifying with the homophobic rapper what could be the hottest confession in hip-hop history.

At the end of that brief but outrageous moment, the viewers had to remind themselves that it was just a part of Rogen’s version of reality, and that Marshall Mather loves his twisted sense of humor. We illustrated the different ways people freaked out over gay Eminem. Comment if you can relate.

Source: The Interview movie

“I don’t necessarily rap about the things that I hate. It’s more about the things that I fear,” opened up a somber Eminem on Skylark Tonight – Franco’s fictional late night show. He went sputtering about people twisting his lyrics, or rapping to deal with old issues with his mom.  But then, out of nowhere, he said: “Or, you know, when I say things about gay people and people think that my lyrics are homophobic, you know, it’s because I’m gay.”

That bit from the film sent social media into frenzy. One fan tweeted “Gay twitter is blowing up” and found the confession amusing.

What…Slim Shady…gay? And we thought he meant all those anti-gay lyrics… He was just dealing with personal issues when he put them out there?!

10 Reactions To The Question Is Eminem Actually Gay5

Somebody pointed out post-The Interview that the hip-hop community would be the worst place to be homosexual. Eminem could get away with the joke confession because he’s white, male, and well, just out thawing the frozen last six years of his career.

We were not sure then if it would actually be a reason to rejoice for the gay community. For all his vaunted honesty, there had been no question about Eminem inviting charges of homophobia, especially with the lyrics of his Rapper God track.

Yeah, some were also squinting…with disgust. How dare Marshall Mathers joke about being homosexual!

10 Reactions To The Question Is Eminem Actually Gay9

The thought that Slim Shady, Eminem’s sadistic and violent alter ego, was gay actually sent shivers down our spine.

If you are still asking at this point if Eminem is actually gay, our answer is yes, he is gay as the North Korean leader is dead in that movie. The short answer is no.

10 Reactions To The Question Is Eminem Actually Gay11

Here is a 2010 performance of I Love the Way You Lie by the rapper and Rihanna. Some loved the 2014 faux gay confession, some hated it, and some simply missed the irony of it.

Well played, Eminem, well played.

10 Helpful Things To Know When You Encounter Bobcat Kittens

Despite being babies, bobcat kittens can inspire fear in humans in some cases. They may not be as huge as adult bobcats, which give kids a fright, but they surely have the makings of a wild feline. Wandering into porches and backyards, they are driven away like unwelcomed guests. They are treated as a potential threat to the people and other animals in the area.

Total awareness of bobcats is indeed advised. But come to think of it, bobcat kittens are also vulnerable creatures. They can be subject to human cruelty, for one. They can also be victims of changes in their environment, for another. Of course, you can’t actually tell whether fear will creep into you when you encounter them, but you can prepare yourself when it happens.

Hope these 10 things about them can help you overcome your fear and deal with a bobcat kitten with a mix of caution and empathy.

Helepolis was basically a large iron-plated tower made up of catapults, dart throwers, stairs and eight wheels and was manually pushed and operated by 3,400 men. If history records are accurate with the Helepolis’ specifications, it would be the largest and strongest siege tower that was ever built.

Char 2C

Char 2C

The Char 2C or FCM 2C is a super heavy weight French tank that was produced in 1921. It is considered as the largest tank ever made in the world, in terms of dimensions (33 ft. in length, 9 ft. in width and 13 ft. in height). It weighs around 69 tons composed mainly of armor. It was also the only tank of its kind that made it to the operational status after it was produced.

The Char C2 was powered by seven tanks with around 1200 liters of fuel and was operated by a crew composed of 12 people.

War has always been part of our history and it is just pretty amazing to see that during those early times, people are already able to produce these kinds of machines that are way bigger than we could imagine. And even though weapons are one of the most crucial accessories in the world of warfare, it is still humans and our brains that can make, operate and break them. If these enormous machines never impressed you, we don’t know what else can.

  • Pick a Good Mix of Lows and Highs:  One good strategy frequently shared by experienced gamers is to pick good numbers on the Low Side and to bet to the same amount on the High Side. With this strategy, there is a bigger chance of you winning if the ball lands on any of the numbers you choose.
  • Understand That Each Game Stands on Its Own:  Some gamers tend to lose big because they believe that they can predict the outcome of the succeeding rounds with the outcome of the previous spins.  Please understand that legitimate online gaming sites are using s technology called RNG (Random Number Generator) therefore it is technically impossible to predict a pattern or trend for a series of games.
  • Learn to Set Aside Profits: You might have a good streak of winning on any given day, but if you gamble all the way without saving a big portion of your winnings, you might end up losing everything. Some gamers cash out their winnings from time to time, maintaining only the minimum deposit required. With this strategy, there is a bigger chance for you to take home your winnings instead of losing everything.

General Betting Tips

I will post my bets on twitter and hope to find you all some winners.  The Markets I tend to go for are BTTS, Overs, Asians lines with a few doubles thrown in.

Here are a few General Betting Tips that will help anyone who is serious about building a betting pot and achieving long term profit.

General Tips

  1. Stick to Singles, Doubles and at the most Trebles! Accas are great fun and you will see the odd massive winner posted on facebook or twitter etc…but ask yourself…how many losing accas is there compared to winning…100’s. Also remember this…Recently you have seen the all this “Acca Insurance” Nonsense that various bookies are offering…why do you think they are encouraging customer to place big accas? Because they know by in large most will lose.
  2. Bookies Offers…it never annoys me more than when Im watching a game, the ads come on with Big Ray giving some stupid in play tip about so and so to score next at 12/1! Why do you think bookies do this? Because they are your mate and they want you to win money? No! of course not…avoid them at all costs!
  3. Accept that you will not always win. One of the most common things I see and Ive done it many a time in the past is you have a shite day, lose your bets and try and win it back. Don’t. honestly, just log out the betting website and put on a film and forget it, there is always another day, you will not win all the time. I lost count of the times where I had that anger where I feel I need to win my money back, looked at the fixtures at stupid o’clock at night, find some random game in Costa Rica or something and think if I just stick a tenner on that I would have broke even. Fair enough you may get lucky that once and win but more often than not you wont, believe me!
  4. Be disciplined! Its Saturday, there are loads of games and its so easy to get carried away putting on multiple bets and losing your hard earned cash. Stick to a few bets you really fancy, think outside the box – Just because every man and his dog are on a certain team or particular bet doesn’t mean it will come in.
  5. In-Play – Many a time I really fancy a Over 2.5 for instance but the best odds I can get is say 1.66, so two options here, one find a “dead cert” to double it up with to get the required odds (I look to get around evens per bet) this is something I wouldn’t really recommend because you know the “dead cert” will let you down!  I prefer to wait inplay, prey there isn’t a goal for the first ten minutes then take the better price. The price on Overs/Btts can rise quite abit within the first few minutes of a game. Eg 1.66 will rise to around 1.83/1.90 after ten minutes or so.
  6. Don’t always look at the stats, apply logic and knowledge to your bets. Soccerway and Futbol24 are great websites for checking form and stats etc but as we all know football isn’t all about stats and applying the knowledge you have about a particular team or player can be better than any stat out there.
  7. Look around the web for previews on the games you wish to bet on. If you’re looking to bet on a game where your knowledge is limited either avoid or have a look on the web for a preview.  Often I have found a price on a game and think..wow! that’s too long Im having some of that. Then that team goes on to lose! Shock. Then I find out the team I have just bet on had 5 players out injured or something. Do your research there are loads of sites out there that give previews on games. BEFORE you place the bet do some digging….it may save you a few quid or even better alert you to some vital piece of info you didn’t know!
  8. Similar to the above and somewhat obvious thing to point out but look around at price, I have multiple accounts and sometimes am surprised at the difference in price between bookies for the same bet. Its worth taking a few minutes to compare.
  9. Don’t get carried away. Betting is emotional. When you lose it can make you feel shite when you win you can feel irresistible! If you have had a good day, your bets have come in and all in the world is good. Stop, withdraw your winnings and move on till the next day. I had excellent days, I feel that whatever I bet on is coming off and then I get too carried away and blow all the profit I have made. Just remember there is always a shit day around the corner so accept your winnings and move on. Always bet with a level head and never bet when your in a bad frame of mind or too excited (or pissed)
  10. Do not feel that you have to bet everyday! Sometimes there will be an evening with loads of games going on, you have a look around and nothing particular excites you or jumps outs.  If this is the case, do not place a bet.  Don’t go out your way to try to find a bet that doesn’t exist!

Milford votes down casino proposal

MILFORD, Mass. (AP) — Milford town residents have overwhelmingly rejected a proposal to build a $1 billion casino, further trimming the field of potential candidates for the state’s first regional resort casino licenses.

The town clerk’s office said Tuesday night the complete unofficial totals were 6,361 votes against it, and 3,480 votes in favor.  Turnout, expected to be heavy, was 57 percent.

The group Crossroads Massachusetts had proposed a casino off Interstate 495 that would have been managed by Connecticut casino operator Foxwoods.

Opinion was sharply divided in the town of about 27,000. Opponents warned of traffic jams and reduced property values. Supporters touted jobs and new revenue.

The Milford result is the latest setback in Massachusetts for backers of large-scale casinos. It  follows votes earlier this month against Mohegan Sun in Palmer and Suffolk Downs in East Boston.
