The soda thing is really silly, I mean come on does anyone think just limiting the max size is going to cause a decrease in obesity in NYC? Imagine if Bushie was limited to the max soda size he could order and how much of an effect that'd have. Very pointless regulation.

However that is far from the main reason he's a HP.

It actually might make a difference though if people just tend to buy smaller sodas.  If you drink one soda per day, a 20 ounce coke is 234 calories vs. a 16 ounce coke is 187 calories.  Considering those are just empty calories, 47 Calories or 100 calories if you drink 2 sodas per day, that would make a difference over a long period of time.  The question is whether people would just find other ways to drink more soda. 

How many people drink one soda per day in the type affected by the regulation though? Even those that want more would just buy more in bottles unaffected by it. I myself never buy the max size of a fountain drink anyway because drinking all that at once gives me a stomachache. I can't see how it can make any actual difference in total consumption.

Inks has now become the 1980s era rogue cop, banned from the force, but still determined to take down the criminal who framed him for a crime he didn't commit.

Except in this case, there's no black police captain and Inks actually did commit the crime.

This makes me even more glad Inks is completely powerless now.

I realize that typing this is probably a waste of time and energy, but there's nothing "right wing" about South Park at all.  You're seeing patterns of "bias" when there aren't any.

I've said before that even if South Park is right wing 51% of the time and left wing 49% of the time that still puts it WAAAAAAAAY more right wing than Family Guy or most shows on TV.

Can't compare a serial drama to a sketch comedy show.

You also probably shouldn't crowd surf if you're over 22
At your age, never.

I present to you two people who have obviously never been to a Minneapolis hardcore show. Especially if it's some band from around the turn of the millennium playing their "reunion" show that they play at least once a year.

For the record I thought of this after viewing this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MecslncPTFE

Notice how often the girl with the very bright red hair gets on stage and jumps off. Granted she is hot so I wouldn't mind if that was happening with her at a show I was at.

I'll go with once per band. I suppose if you do it once near the start of the set and once near the end it's not that big of a deal, but anyone who crowdsurfs every song, or worse, multiple times a song is a complete douche. I've seen people crowdsurf as many as four times during a single song!

Well in general Antonio doesn't strike me as someone who would like either South Park's style of "humor" or its politics.

Wait you actually like South Park? You struck me as the type who'd also have an extreme hatred toward any media work that was even remotely right wing.

His follow up was also very good:

There are deranged extremists on all sides, of course. But snowstalker is only doing this for attention and because he thinks doing so is funny. I would argue that discussion of this topic is enough of a disaster area without people doing that...

You've probably heard Train even if you didn't know it was them, they're the type of standard bland music that adult contemporary stations love as well as background music in waiting rooms and department stores. It's more very forgettable instead of unbearably awful.

I can't think of a fifth Train song that's definitively "bad."

Silly list if it's not going to include "Meet Virginia" or "Drops of Jupiter" under "Good Train songs". I wouldn't call either one "good" per se, but they're both most certainly better than any other song on the list from either band.

Bushie would clearly be a terrible human being even if he had a different belief system; whether a different form of religion, or something more secular. It doesn't even have to be a belief system in a conventional, structural, sense. There is a certain type of person who can use just about anything to justify just about anything they do; a fairly common subtype - one that Bushie is just a few points of SBC dogma away from actually - would be the person who seems themself as the hero in the story of their own life.

As evidenced here, "grace alone" can truly be made a sick and dangerous concept.

Yes, Protestantism truly is a horror.

But what about my type of Protestantism? And Nathan's too which is also extremely difference from what Bushie talks about.

I see him as a straight D voter since 1992, but he probably voted for Reagan and George H.W. Bush twice. At least assuming that he's that old, but he was in the pilot.

Nickelback gets so much attacks because they aren't just bad music, like say Ke$ha is. Their songs are barely music. It's like music with all the desirable elements stripped, a skeleton of a song but not in any way enjoyable. You know how soda fountains sometimes have a small "soda" lever but no one ever drinks it straight because it's just non-flavored non-sugared carbonated water and tastes disgusting? That's what a Nickelback song is. Nothing that jumps out in badness, just unbearably boring.

I'll drink seltzer from time to time.  Sometimes you just need something that isn't flavored or sugared or caffeinated or anything like that.  And of course, it's a vital ingredient when added to your own syrups or boozes (though obviously not at someone else's soda fountain).

If you want something that isn't that stuff, just drink standard water. That stuff is disgusting.

As for the adding other things to it, that's the analogy. Nickelback songs are stripped of the stuff that makes music enjoyable. It's just bland blocks of sound.

As for Train, their 20th century and early 21st century work is not my thing, but their singles of the era are not entirely terrible and I got a kick out of someone pointing out how hilariously cheesy and Guy Picciotto-esque the lyrics to "Drops of Jupiter" are. Anything they've done in the last 10 years is unbearable, but Nickelback was awful from the start, and as stated above, it's not just that Nickelback is bad, they're a special kind of bad.

I highly doubt that Jesus would take any interest in an unrepentant sinner like Bushie who routinely profanes the Lord's name by using it as a catch-all excuse.
