This is why, even though I respect the reasons that lead many people to oppose abortion and think that's a perfectly valid position to take, I have nothing but contempt for conservative politicians who claim to champion these views. Preserving the sanctity of life is just a pretext to them (indeed, some of them have no problem forcing women to abort when it's convenient to them, as a certain TN Congressman well knows). In the end, it's all about preserving male control over women's sexuality and life choices.

Deep fried cheese curds. They're mostly associated with fairs and outdoor places like amusement parks in the Upper Midwest, but you can find them at all sorts of bars and restaurants too. But hard to find outside the Upper Midwest from what I've been told.

While we're at it, anyone ever had a cheeseburger like this? Supposedly even more localized, Minnesota, the bordering areas in Wisconsin, Sioux Falls and Fargo are the ONLY places I've ever heard of serving this:

I'm generally of the school of thought that music is better without screaming, but maybe I'm just a music snob.

Hmm, I think you'd like Joel's lyrics at least (gave an example here), even though he's become my go-to example of an Italian-American who isn't Catholic. BTW I also just recently found out the church he goes to is actually nominally a Disciples of Christ one, which is pretty interesting for San Diego.

ALL SCREAMING ALL THE TIME

That doesn't describe that song AT ALL.

I'm generally of the school of thought that music is better without screaming, but maybe I'm just a music snob.

Yeah. I like metal and I agree screaming generally isn't good, especially in the chorus.

LOL. 1-Being As An Ocean isn't even remotely metal. 2-Like most post-hardcore bands, their songs do not have verses and choruses.

in the case of most BAAO songs, better. Joel is one of the best vocalists around nowadays. So much raw emotion and he replicates it live as well.

He's also one of the best lyricists ever (although I'm sure if I wasn't Christian I wouldn't appreciate them quite as much)

I got into an argument with my co-worker today on this while I was listening to it. She said that it was actually pretty good except for the screaming that ruins it. I explained the screaming is an integral part and I like it. However I have realized that unlike most music of the type, this song would still be pretty "complete" if the screaming was removed, just long batches of instrumentals. Still would be good, but better as it is.

I think all national anthems suck so that's not a factor for me. I'd like it if some country ever adopted a melodic hardcore song as a national anthem.

What if a trolley was headed down a track and about to run over a tied up Hitler, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, Pol Pot, Kim Jong-un and Augusto Pinochet. You can throw a switch to change it but that'll run over a box of kittens on the other track. Do you throw the switch?

Polls in June mean nothing. Just wait until the GOP smear machine rallies behind their racist leader and starts to blame everything on Hispanics and blacks.

LOL!

    No, I'm not petty and immature.

It's petty and immature to oppose cheaters?

The only reason that doping b!tch Yuliya Yefimova was even there was she avoided a lifetime ban from swimming on a technicality.

Yes, not only because their government is terrible but they're a bunch of f[inks]ing cheaters.

I'm quite glad Lilly King defeated that doping b!tch who should've been banned anyway. Hearing about how she got booed when her name was announced made my day though.

There really is not a party that matches European Liberal Conservatism in the US. She is not as nutty as those is the Green Party, but is far to the left of the Democrats, so I would say that she really does not fit into any party in the US.

Tyrannosaurus Rex existed on Earth closer to the present day than it did the time that Stegosaurus existed.
Cleopatra lived closer to the construction of the Pizza Hut near the Great Pyramid of Giza than she did the construction of the pyramid.
Nevermind was released closer to the release of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band than the present day.
The release of Donnie Darko is closer to the time it was set than it is to the present day.
Sneakers O'Toole's appearance on Family Guy is closer to the premier of Family Guy than it is to the present day.
There are now people who are legally adults born after the series finale of Seinfeld.
118  Forum Community / Forum Community / Was Team Rocket linked to a far right organization? on: August 09, 2016, 10:59:40 pm
I thought about this. Look at their motto, it has some far right tinge to it:

Quote
Prepare for trouble
and make it double!
To protect the world from devastation!
To unite all peoples within our nation!
To denounce the evils of truth and love!
To extend our reach to to the stars above!
Jesse!
James!
Team Rocket blasting off at the speed of light!
Surrender now or prepare to fight!

I was thinking that they might've been intended to be the criminal wing of a far right movement, similar to Golden Dawn's non-political activities, or perhaps more directly inspired, the Uyoku Dantai in Japan. Illegal Pokemon trafficking is their primary source of income, and they're quite active in bribery of politicians.

Honestly I think the whole point of this is to try and get this to a no-majority situation so the House can elect Paul Ryan an establishment Republican to the Presidency.

Uh, the guy has zero chance of winning any states, and a near zero chance of breaking 1% in any state except Utah.

I almost didn't.

I forgot about it. I only did because I promised a co-worker to drop off her rent check, and then saw the voting signs. This was with one hour left. I made it with a half hour to spare.

Voter 211. Not bad turnout for something so meaningless.

Actually a plausible implementation of the human vs. animal life issue here is with poaching. For example in India and South Africa, it's legal to use deadly force against poachers if needed to save any animals. I don't disagree with that.
122  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Adolf Hitler and a gorilla are drowning in a river. You can only save 1. on: August 09, 2016, 09:24:16 am
Wait, is Tony saying that if Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was captured and arrested, he'd choose to save his life over that of an innocent animal's?

Are you saying that if he was captured we should just kill him? I thought you were against the death penalty.

No I wouldn't execute him, but I wouldn't exactly lift a finger to save him either. And yeah, I sure as hell would rather save my parents' beloved cat that I also grew up with rather than him. I assume you've seen Batman Begins right? Think of what Batman says and does to the villain at the end.

I just tested it on DRA. If you remove the entire NYC area...and Erie County...and Monroe County....and Onagonada County...and the entire Albany region/Capital District...Obama still wins in 2008 50.3-48.1%. And lots of that area actually swung toward Obama in 2012, so he might've won in 2012 too.

Expecting someone to be defined by whatever cultural identity they were born into is a repressive and reactionary way of thinking.
