    Have you seen Johnny Dangerously recently?

    Michael Keaton weaves this massive story about how "crime doesn't pay" for the entertainment of a street urchin, and then his limo full of loose women pulls up to take him home to a mansion, so he amends his last comment to "Okay, so maybe crime pays a little."

    Lance and Tiger are fucked.

    Tiger's wife destroyed one of his cars with a golf club.

    His marriage is over, which has not so much to do with his career.

    I have no idea how Bill made it out the other end of his brouhaha with both his career and marriage intact.

    Saw something the other day "Yes but Bill and Monica was a love story that tested the ages, destiny said that they were meant to be together no matter the obstacles."

    (Could have been Dallas, possibly Scandal?)

    Who cares if Tiger's marriage is over, he can just get another marriage. So he's had a shitty time of it and people sneer at him, he is still famous in his career and will be for decades after he retires AND he still has a crapload of money. Even if he gives his wife half of it he has more money than this whole BB put together.

    Lance now, he's a little more fucked. But he is still rich.

    Can you imagine those three in a support group?

    Church basement, folding chairs, bad coffee?

    ^That would be a funny reality show.

    Those guys are just names I pulled out of nowhere to say cheating does pay but in regards to crime doesn't pay, it totally does. Drugs and black market dealings range in the millions if not billions.

    But it's stressful bbjeg. You need to do yoga and stuff to maintain your serenity if you're into that shit.

    It's not cheating till they catch you.

    Except those guys aren't sitting in church basements, they are in million dollar rehab spas being pandered to.

    ^Which would make the superstars that much funnier sitting in a church basement on cheap folding chairs. Put them in a million dollar spa and I'm changing the channel.

    Crime is beyond stressful, true, but if you survive it and were good at it, it pays and pays well.

    To loop this back to the thread title, the study of what is currently being discussed could be accessed from the holodeck or bridge better than astrometrics. ;)
