Dana White and the Fertittas have in their contracts that any disputes over the direction of the company (ZUFFA, which owns and operates the UFC) will be settled by a grappling match.

Yeah, but eventually all CEOs will be big, smelly biker-types instead of bloated psychopathic white guys...

Oh, subby, that is *so* over the top.

The word "Than" is comparative.  For example: "Subby is less literate than a baboon."

The word "Then" is conditional.  For example: "First, Subby wrote this headline,  then I mocked his marginal literacy.

It's really not that hard.

Christie's sought advice on the matter (from kids within the company) and were told to choose scissors, because "Everybody expects you to choose rock."

I played rock-paper-scissors for trivial stakes with a man who I knew to be an excellent poker player and venture capital big shot. He tried to influence my choice by telling me something like, beginners always choose rock. I went with rock anyway and won.

Hmm...suddenly they hired (fill-in-the-blank-wrestler) to head up HR! Kooky, innit?

Ya, how shocking that a company built on wrestling and image has released a statement that says 'we will wrestle' about something.

Like totally Rick Flair up in this biatch mang.

So subby never grew up? Win win.

Arm wrestling used to be something done fairly regularly as little as a couple of decades ago. Nowadays, if you challenge someone (even a friend) to an arm wrestle, you are treated like a lunatic.

Same thing for regular wrestling between friends. It seems that despite the liberality and openness of the times, young men are hypersensitive to the "gay" label (NTTAWWT), to an unhealthy extreme.

You say that like it's a bad thing. I say we give the smelly bikers a chance on top.

You mean, they aren't as driven to conform to arbitrary definitions of "manliness."

I dunno...wouldn't it be better to do it this way than drag everyone into court for years and years, spend millions of dollars on corporate lawyers, and in the end solve nothing? Why NOT solve it with a three round winner-take-all arm wrestling match?

I love the Southwest Airlines story, especially because the CEO of Southwest lost, but his opponent still decided to let Southwest use the slogan.

i agree with you & Subby. it's wealthy Daddy Warbucks types that gladly fill young people full of patriotic propaganda punch and send them off to die. most every day people just want peace and to get along. i hope some day people biatch slap governments war lust right off the planet.

Arm wrestling died in 1987. Link

Do I have the option of greasing them all up first?  Do I have the option of selection of the warehouse in which the battle takes place?  Am I allowed to lock the doors from the outside, so that none of the contestants or the audience can escape when I decide to cleanse...

...I've said too much

"Then" as a conditional would have a different example, such as "If you put too much sriracha on your eggs, then your mouth will burst into flames."

In the example you gave, "First, Subby wrote this headline,  then I mocked his marginal literacy," the "then" is a conjunctive adverb.

You have to admit, it's a little over the top.

No no, do go on. Is the oil flavored or spicy?

Submit that the best way to settle international disputes is bare naked, hand to hand, unarmed, to the death combat between heads of state. How many lives would we save?

None, if these douchebags insisted on having seconds.

(By seconds I mean "seconds' in the dueling sense of the term)
