The Mighty Mites of Milford, Massachusetts turn their scrimmage during halftime of a high school varsity game into a dance party.
MONK #1: what's inside of a dog
MONK #2: hmm?
MONK #1: like how would I draw a dog, and what it's made of
MONK #2: oh oh gotcha
red strings and nothing
MONK #1: okay so I know that knights and horses go together
like in wartime
MONK #2: right
MONK #1: but how is that arranged, exactly
like how does it look when they go into battle
MONK #2: oh that's easy
the knight stands perfectly still and the horse bumps him with its nose from behind
MONK #1: really?
MONK #2: yeah
MONK #1: seems like it would make more sense for the knight to ride on the horse
or at least for them to both walk side by side
MONK #2: yeah i mean
it takes forever but who are we to judge
Ah, the old boner drugs defence.
Part of Anderson Silva's defense in a steroid case with the Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) will be that his use of "sexual performance" medication tainted his drug test result.
Silva will go before the NAC for a disciplinary hearing Thursday following multiple failed tests -- in and out of competition -- for performance-enhancing drugs in January. The former UFC middleweight champion is denying he knowingly took any kind of steroids, but part of his defense will be that sexual performance medication and another supplement contaminated the test results, according to the answer to the NAC complaint obtained Tuesday by MMAFighting.com.
Combate was the first to report the information.
"The Spider" tested positive for drostanolone metabolites twice -- once the day of his Jan. 31 fight against Nick Diaz and in an out-of-competition, Jan. 9 test. Silva also tested positive for androstane, another banned substance, in the random, pre-fight test.
Silva's lawyer Michael Alonso writes in the answer that Silva was "administering or using a supplement for the purpose of enhancing sexual performance and testing of the supplement revealed that the supplement was contaminated with an Exogenous Anabolic Agent: Drostanolone metabolite."
Alonso also wrote that another supplement Silva was taking could have contained androstane.
Silva's defense against the NAC will also contain inconsistencies in drug tests, including two tests -- one pre-fight and one post-fight -- that Silva passed. The NAC did not include in its initial complaint the post-fight test that Silva had passed, according to the answer to the complaint.
Silva also tested positive for temazepam and oxazepam, which are classified as benzodiazepines and not prohibited for in-competition use by the NAC unless there is an exemption given. The commission alleges also that Silva did not inform it about any such supplements in a pre-fight questionnaire.
Alonso writes that the NAC has failed to provide sufficient facts with regards to that part of the claim. Temazepam is commonly used as a sleep aid, while oxazepam is an anti-anxiety medication.
Silva's defense team is asking that the NAC take no disciplinary action against Silva, including any kind of fine or suspension. Silva's team is also asking for the NAC not to overturn the fight result to a no contest. Silva beat Diaz via unanimous decision.
Silva is currently under temporary suspension pending the results of this disciplinary hearing.
Silva, 40, is regarded as the best pound-for-pound fighter in UFC history. He defended the middleweight title 10 times and won 16 straight fights in the organization, both records.
The fight against Diaz was his first in 13 months following a gruesome broken leg he sustained while fighting Chris Weidman in December 2013.
Jo, Rousey referencing Ender's Game to explain why she's going to beat Correia really, really bad.
Rousey puts her UFC women's bantamweight title on the line against Correia this Saturday in the main event of UFC 190, and Las Vegas oddsmakers have already made Rousey a whopping 17-to-1 favorite in some sports books. If that number holds up, it'll stand as the biggest and most lopsided line in UFC history. Add in the fact that it's a title fight in the challenger's own backyard, and suffice to say the pressure carried on Rousey's shoulders is enormous.
But that's just the way she likes it.
"This definitely is the most personal fight that I've ever been in and it's the most pressure that I've ever been under, and that's another reason why Bethe is just never meant to be the champion," Rousey said at UFC 190's open workouts. "Because she said that, ‘oh, I have no pressure on me, no one expects anything out of me, so that's an advantage.'
"So you're saying that you do the best with less pressure? Like, that's what's best for you? You're not meant for this life. You're not. I do the best the more pressure there is. I fight above myself. I've never been under more pressure in my life, and I'm going to show the world what I'm really made of."
Rousey hasn't made a secret of her disdain for Correia. While the pair's rivalry may have started out friendly enough, it took a turn in May when Correia told Brazilian media that she hoped Rousey didn't commit suicide after losing her UFC title.
Rousey's father committed suicide when Rousey was a young girl, and the tragedy was understandably one of the turning points of Rousey's life.
Since hearing Correia's comments, Rousey has repeatedly vowed to make an example of the undefeated Brazilian.
"I can't have girls taking the same approach as Bethe," Rousey reiterated Wednesday. "Ender's Game was one of my favorite books growing up, and one the messages I took (from the book) is when you beat somebody, you have to beat them so well and thoroughly that you beat them all of the future times. You have to win all of the future possible fights.
"So I have to beat this girl so thoroughly that there's not future girls who pick on my family in order to get a quicker title shot. Pick on me all you want, but leave them out of it. That's what I really want to accomplish."
Correia ultimately backtracked away from her comments, claiming that she was unaware of Rousey's father's suicide when she made her initial remarks.
Her mea culpa didn't exactly come with an apology though, as Correia said only, "I'm humble enough to ask [you] for forgiveness." And Rousey isn't willing to let that fact slide.
"I don't believe her at all," Rousey said. "How could you know that many more obscure facts about my life and not know about that? I don't know if I'm more insulted by what she said or by her phony attempt to save face, because she never even apologized. That's the thing. She was just like, ‘I'm humble enough to ask for forgiveness.'
"You're complimenting yourself and you're asking for forgiveness without apologizing. And it's all a lie. So that's like A, B, and C of bulls**t, and I just don't have the capacity for bulls**t."
For better or worse, the incident ultimately became a driving narrative of UFC 190, and the fallout has done little to slow Correia's trash talk.
Correia captured Rousey's attention by defeating two of her training partners, Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Baszler, thereby forcing a rivalry with Rousey's Four Horsewomen group. The storyline took on a life of its own, which eventually led to Correia being granted her title shot. She has since continued to throw shots at Rousey nearly every chance she gets, even implying that Rousey is a one-trick pony who is fallible without her trademark armbars.
"The thing is, when you're trying to address someone who doesn't know what they're talking about, you have to keep in mind that they don't know what they're talking about," Rousey said. "My last five fights were all very different. It was a very different progression of events that happened in every single one, and it just kind of speaks to her ignorance.
"It's like watching boxing (and saying), ‘oh, well it always ends with a punch, so they always do the same thing.' Every single one of those armbars, the knockout with the knee, the knockout with the overhand right, they were all extremely different. If they all looked the same to you, that really shows how little you understand."

True comic. The computer was failing to get an IP address from the network several times a day for no apparent reason. My parent’s computer had The Real Problems™
I’m gonna be in Hamilton, Ontario in like a week for Con Bravo! Whoa! Are YOU gonna be there? Because I will be!
I’ll be doing a webcomic panel with I AM ARG (who is also a server pal/real pal) along with some other webcomic folks!
Put some headphones on, close your eyes, and just “feel the fucking nonsense float away.”
I have no idea why this is so funny to me.
The first four panels are 100% true. The last four panels aren’t true… yet. Because I can totally see myself doing that. Maybe not with dog vom, but certainly with something else.
By the time you read this, I’ll be in Las Vegas doing things and melting into the pavement!
Also, the comic on Tuesday will be delayed to Wednesday due to me just getting back from Vegas Tuesday morning!
I saw my favourite painting in the Musée d'Orsay on a wall in Paris, and now I know why!
That guy gave some major personal spoilers man. I would have never told anyone that, because all it takes is one hungry friend…
Do you like Team Fortress 2? Awesome!
Do you like Buttersafe? Oh. You do?
Well, that’s too bad, because on Sunday at 6PM Eastern, 3 PM Pacific, there will be an Invisible Bread vs Buttersafe Team Fortress 2 match and you’ll be shooting some Buttersafe fans right in their hitboxes.
I, of course, will be on team Buttersafe because their comic is pretty dang great.

Dogs are the bests.
By day I am a thai policeman. By night I am a mexican gangster.
The rise of Thai halfway crook-ery.
A curious new trend has emerged in Bangkok, where young Thai men are dressing up as Latino gangsters. Most of these men say they are motivated by their passion for the “gangster” lifestyle and clothes. Coconuts TV met up with three “gangs” – Balcony Pain, Fratez and D Sixty – for a photoshoot and to learn more about the phenomenon.
This is so good.
