"People are bidding on a 'bag of air' from Kobe Bryant's last game"

Some people are stupid. And I don't mean "hit reply all on that joke about your boss to the entire office" stupid. I mean genuinely, "what could you possibly be thinking" stupid. As such, people will try and profit off of said stupidity, and often times, these situations involve sports. Such is the case with this:

That's right, someone is selling a bag of air from Kobe Bryant's last game.

A bag. Of air.

As if you're going to be able to verify that. Or that someone would actually be impressed by a bag of air sitting on a display. Or that you're not going to accidentally puncture that bag when you move and then it just escapes and joins the rest of the air or slowly leaks out over time. Or as if it wasn't a bag. Of air.


"State’s primary a losing proposition to some Bay Area Republicans"

For while the Bay Area is the nation’s progressive soul, it is also home to some of the country’s most prominent establishment conservatives, including former Secretaries of State George Shultz and Condoleezza Rice (who declined to comment), as well as deep-pocketed donors Silicon Valley entrepreneur Floyd Kvamme, who, along with wife Jean, has contributed $200,00 to a pro-John Kasich super PAC, and venture capitalist Jillian Manus.

Cathie Bennett Warner says she will consider voting for a Democrat if Trump is the GOP’s nominee, but “if it’s Bernie Sanders, I’ll probably leave the country.”

Many of them are nauseated by Trump’s divisive comments on immigrants, Muslims and women, and regret the establishment-splintering chaos the Republican primary has produced as the original field of 17 candidates has dwindled to three.

They use such words as “miserable,” “sickened,” “ashamed.” And most alarming for Republicans candidates everywhere, they’re not opening their checkbooks.

By this point in the election season, “I would have been knee deep in one of the campaigns,” said Manus, who campaigned for GOP gubernatorial candidates Meg Whitman and Arnold Schwarzenegger. But “I haven’t given one cent to a candidate. Actually that’s not true. I gave to Kamala Harris,” a Democrat running for U.S. Senate.
