A member of the LA Kings is not my pick if I could be anyone in the world, just saying they are in a very good position without having to deal with the harassment that someone like a famous actor/musician does

I had no idea people even knew it existed outside of pr0n. I heard about the shutdown and was like, well **** at least there's still filefactory, rapidshare, fileserve, etc
I don't use Megaupload, but use similar to download recorded games, shows, or sometime movies.

Works really well for albums too if you don't like messing with those one things they ban people for talking about.

zuckerberg wouldnt be a bad option if you could deal with looking a little goofy. by far the richest person in the general age range that would be preferable. famous, but not "I have papparazzi following me everywhere I go" famous. clearly intelligent.

Interesting, I always do torrents for regular shows and movies, seems faster than the single source downloads but clearly megaupload was huge

I doubt this is true

Lewis Hamilton is #1 in the black people section imo. Younger than Tiger, none of the baggage and probably has more earning potential right now.

I settled on Justin Bieber, Justin Timerlake, or Tayler Lautner. I figure I'd then have all the dollars... and be able to bang it out with Mila Kunis no problem.

Nice pick, Euro F-1 Drivers can live in Monaco to avoid income taxes (Americans can't) and avg Euro chick is hotter than avg North American chick.

It's probably not as strictly true as that, but there's no doubt that being an A list actor is a hell of a lot easier than being an A list musician

No one expects you to tour, and you're pretty much getting paid for your name and face, you don't even have to try particularly hard to act at that point

Zuckerberg would be pretty solid, would definitely be buying the next NFL team that comes up for sale.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, and Forum Discussion

CDL, I didn't even bother going back that far, ldo. If making aspersions about my intellect is what floats your boat, go on ahead.

I'm quite confident in my abilities in my chosen field of specialization, and that's really all I need for a successful professional life.

average girl is 100% irrelevant. if youre picking anyone in the world and getting hot girls is part of your criteria in selecting who you will be you should only be considering the hotness, diversity (or lack of depending on what youre into), and any other desirable traits of the top 5% of girls anyways. taking the average and diversity of the top 5% is much more important than caring about the average of the whole surrounding population.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, and Forum Discussion

"getting hot girls" is what seemed to be the topic at hand in the last dozen or so posts I saw before I posted, and ofc being in a locale where the typical 20-something girl is at least cute would make this task much easier.

If you're picking someone who isn't in a position to reject the bottom 99% of his range, you're doing it wrong

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, and Forum Discussion

the top 5% would be better in a place where the median girl is more attractive

the same is true of household income (the top 5% of household incomes are higher in metro areas where the median household income is higher)

well, I do think you'd be able to take the Kings off the maloofs hands for under a billion so you'd be set there. but yea, if I could pick anyone I think I go with Zuckerberg. Liquidate that **** for like $25 billion in personal wealth, buy an NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL (bc why not own a hockey team too) franchise, and then just chill for the rest of my life. Maybe hire the TZ crew to run my NBA team as an experiment.
