I'd take a lot of the Putin health stuff with a grain of salt.
Some of it may be true, but it's just as likely a bit of propaganda.

Vertigo?

Who knows.  How believable these reports are anyway.

I maintain we are on a collision course with world war 3, and that most of the attacks we are facing are all in cyber land.

Just got to hope, its not too serious when it all happens in earnest, and my advise to everyone is whilst I wouldnt be doomsday prepping at this stage, ensure you have a grasp on what it takes to grow some food in your back yard just in case.

It was...
The point is that after the game I turned on the Today show.
It was still half time according to them.
Same on QLD seven and the Sunrise show.
The match unfolded over the next hour on that show...but the result was already in.

We're getting the news an hour later than the Southern states.
I'm guessing it applies to all news.
What I don't understand is why they don't start the show an hour earlier and stay in sync with the deep South.
It's light at 4.00am and everyone is up anyway.

Why i don't understand is why don't you banana benders get in line with the rest of country!  :P

Partly agree, but I would not confuse expert cunning and being manipulative with an outright measure of intelligence.

If he was that intelligent he wouldn't be blowing his family fortune, it looks like it was his late wife that pretty much run the show and saved him from bankruptcy more than once.

Intelligence can be street wise or naivé, some of the very smartest people I've come across are completely clueless socially and morally, and "they" are often very myopic. Now as I write this I recall my psychologist friend telling me my use of inclusive language is a give away, but I have to say to her in regards to Trump that argument doesn't apply because we are talking about a singular subject.

Good points, Spotted One. There are quite a few varieties of 'intelligence'... but as Pauly pointed out, he is definitely not a fool or idiot. Though, in terms of emotional intelligence, he's stuck with the emotional maturity of a teenager.

Streets smarts, immorality (no moral compass or social rule book), narcissism, loot/connections and being somewhat of an artful seducer have helped him no end.
