OT -- Thuuz.com

Submitted by MrVociferous on February 23rd, 2011 at 3:16 PM

Just heard about this site Thuuz today.  It looks like its a new site that uses some algorithms to figure out an excitement level for various ongoing games.  You can sign up for the service and they will let you know (via email or text) when the game reaches a per determined "excitement" level so you can tune in and watch the good parts.

Has anyone heard of this site before?  And more importantly, has anyone used it?

Hey Mark, personally I feel like that site has too specific of an audience. While you're grappling with trying to find those unbroadcasted games, take a look at ESPN. It shows you the score, and the game instead of making decisions for you because we're all grown ups here. 

You're Welcome,

It's too bad you created an account just to comment and self-promote in this thread. I was coming here to suggest RUWT, but now that would be kind of lame.

I have used both services but don't find mysefl relying on or turning to them very much. One bonus for RUWT is that it has a chrome extension (and probably a firefox add-on as well, but I'm not sure). Even with that though, I don't use it too much, but I find I don't have time to kill watching too many games that I don't have a rooting interest in anymore, so I'm probably not the best one to give an opinion.

In the upcoming games section it says that the San Jose Sharks vs Pittsburgh Penguins game is receiving an automatic +4. The justification of this is "Can San Jose exploit Crosby's absence?". How can a game be more exciting when you take out one of the game's best players?

Fixed it for you.

Confidential Business Proposal

Having consulted with my colleagues and based on the information gathered from the Nigerian Chambers Of Commerce And Industry, I have the privilege to request your assistance to transfer the sum of $47,500,000.00 (forty seven million, five hundred thousand United States dollars) into your accounts. The above sum resulted from an over-invoiced contract, executed, commissioned and paid for about five years (5) ago by a foreign contractor. This action was however intentional and since then the fund has been in a suspense account at The Central Bank Of Nigeria Apex Bank.

We are now ready to transfer the fund overseas and that is where you come in. It is important to inform you that as civil servants, we are forbidden to operate a foreign account; that is why we require your assistance. The total sum will be shared as follows: 70% for us, 25% for you and 5% for local and international expenses incidental to the transfer.

The transfer is risk free on both sides. I am an accountant with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC). If you find this proposal acceptable, we shall require the following documents:

(a) your banker's name, telephone, account and fax numbers.

(b) your private telephone and fax numbers —for confidentiality and easy communication.

(c) your letter-headed paper stamped and signed.

Alternatively we will furnish you with the text of what to type into your letter-headed paper, along with a breakdown explaining, comprehensively what we require of you. The business will take us thirty (30) working days to accomplish.

Please reply urgently.

Best regards

This post solicited the coveted "laugh-out-loud-at-work" response that always causes the reader to have to explain what is so funn, thereby making the reader feel stupid.  I'm not sure whether to congratulate you on your post or be extremely angry with you for making me feel stupid . . .

Go fuck yourselves.  Perhaps you can do it with one of your clever animations or topical meme photos.

All I was trying to do was asking a group of sports fans about a sports website.  SO SORRY!!!!  Maybe I should have posted the question as a lol cat, MS Paint drawing, or some random gif.

Go on with your lives being cynical.

Mods, you can delete this thread.  God forbid anyone ask a question about another site on here.
