warning – the link “proof that humans are special” – NOT SAFE FOR WORK! I’m expecting my termination notice shortly for clicking that.

I agree about that link. You must pull it off.

5. “Soros’s proverb that you should never marry a woman you wouldn’t want to divorce.” That’s got to be the best line.

Anyway, it is really bizarre to hear the soccer announcers talking about “advancing to the elimination round.” So, if you are eliminated prior to the elimination round you don’t even rate elimination? What are you? “Dumped.” I just don’t get soccer.

The first round is a round robin . 16 go to the elimination stage called that way because is a win or go match. If the game is tied after 90m they go extra time for 30m . If the draw persist they go to penalty kicks. 5 each. If they are still tie they kick one, one until a team fail to score when the other not. The loser team go home
The first elimination round is called 8th of final because will be 8 winners. They go to the 4th of final . The four winner go into semifinals

Yeah, that is why we do it.
