A thought that occurred to me is that a pizza or Jimmy John's delivery job might be decent for Bushie. You can work part time with very flexible hours so he can't use the excuse of having to look for other jobs, it's mostly driving, and even he can walk up carrying that to someone's doorstep. And while the pay isn't great they can make good money with tips, my brother working at Jimmy John's delivery is probably making more than Bushie did at his last call center job with his tips included. And I don't know if Tulsa is the same but in Minneapolis many have the only qualification that you have a car and a driver's license.

But then I realized Bushie would probably get fired after a few weeks due to how unreliable he is and how he'd be constantly calling in because of his headache or stomachache. But hey, worth a few weeks pay.

The second one on that list invalidates the whole thing. And the first is pretty dumb too considering a majority of episodes of that show are unwatchable garbage.

Also no My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Powerpuff Girls, Dexter's Lab or Johnny Bravo.

I vote FF for being basically the hottest female rapper ever, even if her music is still....ugh.

One of the currently best shows on TV crossing over with on of the currently worst. Bleh.

I'm almost starting to think the people for banning Bushie have a point.

It's pretty obvious the only way Update will go away is banning Bushie, and Bushie is using Update as an outlet. This means he isn't actually facing up to his very severe issues. If he didn't have it he might have to actual deal with his issues instead of soaking in the attention.

...But it's going to have to happen sooner or later anyway.

LOL. I don't think I even need to say.

The sad thing is, Bushie's not going to spend full time looking for a job once he leaves this one (assuming he isn't already gone and this is just another cover story.) He'll go back to his watching 12 hours of baseball some days and taking six hour naps the other days lifestyle, or explain how he can't do anything tomorrow because his cousin's roommate's brother's daughter is having her 7th birthday that he has to go to.

Having actually wasted a minute and half of my life listening to this:

Oh, god, emoviolence is even worse than I imagined it would be.

Hmmm I recall you talking about how one should not write off entire genres...

If this song is presented as a good, or even average quality, example of the genre, I'm cofortable doing so, thank you.

As stated above it's a quite diverse genre. And a single track that happens to be a cover which was also recorded in a basement and appeared only a band's demo tape is the never the best example. Compare to these:

Being a beer snob must be an awfully exhausting hobby. Just give me something to drink.

I'm hardly a beer snob, in fact I'm not much of a beer drinker in general, I go more for hard liquor, especially rum.

But I won't ever say "just give me something to drink." I'd rather drink plain tap water than the piss beer mass produced and marketed so widely by major brands.

Here's an example of a typical American Stella Artois ad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wo2IPSItor0

I also remember seeing an ad for it before a movie at an independent arthouse theater just after moving to Minneapolis. Alcohol ads are basically unheard of before movies at mainstream theaters in the US so that itself stood out, but it's clear what type of market they go for at a theater like that.

So of course I had to try it....and then discovered that it's actually really not that good.

Even I with all my crazy thoughts never got the idea "Hey what if someone combined Limitless and The Tree of Life?" but apparently Luc Besson did.

That's as dumb and unfunny and the rest were. Good thing Inks isn't a mod now if they come back.

This is also their logo:



It's pretty obvious they're trying to pretend to be a Tea Party group.
15  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Cassidy getting thrashed by Cassidycare on: July 26, 2014, 09:51:32 pm
Sorry, this ad is just too icky for me. Democrats should be required to run explicitly pro-Obamacare campaigns and attack Republicans for being against it.

This isn't a Democratic candidate's ad though.

Are these things becoming more common, or was it always like this and no one cared until recently?

Becoming more common due to lower quality drugs used.

Even I vote for the Pope.

FYI I made this upon realization that Francis is basically Cuomo's political inverse.
18  General Politics / Individual Politics / If executions happen, should the guillotine be used? on: July 26, 2014, 10:24:13 am
It is hands down the most efficient and painless method of execution. It is also quite cheap as well, certainly far cheaper than lethal injection.

So why on Earth would anyone support the death penalty and not it? Because it "looks bad"?
19  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Arizona execution lasts almost 2 hours on: July 26, 2014, 10:22:59 am
Yes. What argument is there against the guillotine over lethal injection?
20  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Cassidy getting thrashed by Cassidycare on: July 26, 2014, 06:23:33 am
So a liberal PAC that pretends to be a Tea Party group with the name and logo attackingRepublicans Iin a Tea Party esque way
 Very clever.
21  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: What do you call this ideology? on: July 26, 2014, 12:13:51 am
That sounds vaguely similar to some of the European right wing parties like the UKIP, but only vaguely. And note the second point of course.

So I learned that supposedly Belgians hate it, consider it the Belgian version of Budweiser, and the only people who drink it in Belgium are American tourists. I found that kind of funny since their marketing is so much different from Budweiser. However I can't disagree with the assessment. I didn't find it much different than pisswater mainstream American beer.
23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Man Accidentally Killed by Police Choke Hold in Staten Island on: July 25, 2014, 10:48:53 pm
a) Did the police's use of force violate protocol, and if so to what degree? Again, the fact the police used physical force on a huge guy who was resisting arrest, and the obese guy died of a resulting heart attack is by NO means dispositive of the issue.

b) If yes, what impact, if any, did the deviation from procedure impact/cause the man's demise?

Uh as the OP states using chokeholds is a violation of NYPD policy.

A shame that post got deleted before i could deluge it. That's the type of post that's actually better left not deleted since doing so just provides cover for the poster (like what happened with Link and his "LOL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE!" thing.)

I think the DFL might be a little hesitant about putting St. Paul suburbs with Mpls 'burbs like your 2nd does.

Actually their proposed map did just that. It had a district that was just a string of suburbs running along the south metro. Obviously drawn for Terri Bonhoff.

Golden Valley, St. Louis Park and rural Dakota county are the only areas that seem particularly out of place in that district honestly.
