TN High School Coaches Gone Wild

High school football rivalry went weird this month in Marion County. Three coaches face criminal charges and the head coach has resigned after a bizarre prank was revealed.

Seems the assistant coaches wanted to motivate their team against rival South Pittsburgh by faking vandalism attacks. Too bad the coaches got their supplies at the local Walmart while wearing their school colors. After investigating, police also learned the coaches had broken into rival schools to steal playbooks.

Head coach McCurry says it all went wrong because of Love: "The last thing he told me was to tell the boys I love them," Marion County High School Principal Larry Ziegler said."

This wacky act is actually a sort of re-enactment of a Robin Williams movie, "The Best of Times". Williams' character tries to rouse his town by pretending to be a rival team vandalizing the school. His scheme failed too.

Bitcoin - Imaginary, Virtual, or The New Dollar?

I barely comprehend the nature of currency and money, but Bitcoin is a Thing, a new way to pay merchants and to garner investments. And now I'm attempting to learn about "cryptocurrency".

Bitcoin transactions are also being used by a proposed "assassination" agency.

As is so often the case, I have no understanding of what is happening except to observe that something is happening.
