Uh Yates has four mentions.

But the Jersey Shore gave us one of the worst TV shows of all time.

BigSkyBob is around again. CARLHAYDEN was terrible but hilarious.

If there's ever a "free market" for something, this sort of "marketing" will happen. And in the US NOT having a "free market" is impossible, not to mention it'd be blatantly unconstitutional to imagine such a scenario. Plus is this a situation anyone thinks is ideal? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lina_Joy

So since it's pretty clear that no one in the US is going to ever propose banning conversion like in Malaysia or like some BJP state governments in India, and that such a law would be one of the most blatantly unconstitutional things ever (not just in the US but in essentially all Western democracies), it seems kind of weird to take an anti-US attitude in this context. What exactly would be the ideal scenario then? If the answer is setting up a sort of societal attitude and expectation that no one convert from whatever they were born into, I think it goes without saying that would be a pretty horrifying and repressive type of attitude and society, even if not enforced by law.

And furthermore, what type of attitude do you expects the emergent crowd to take? Of course they're going to aim at conversion and bringing people in, that's the only way something that new can survive and grow. What do you propose the emergent churches do instead?

No the offshoots are the best. Like my old display name ("incredibly specific types of post-punk music")

"insensitive replies our Facebook account has received." Yeah more insensitive than killing harmless if unprovoked animals for fun. Let's hope this does lead to a trend of scaring people away from this.

So you increase the contribution rate for this very middle class person from 6.2% to 20%? That's even more regressive. Especially since if the goal is $7,500 then someone making $150k actually would pay less as a percentage under this system.

The Paris Hilton Tax is one of the best and most fair taxes out there.
63  General Politics / Economics / Re: Fellow Libertarians, why do Democrats and Liberals Hate the Gold Standard? on: April 19, 2015, 10:59:50 am
Rather than what's so bad about it, what's so good about it should be the question. The only answer I'm seeing here is a childlike understanding economics and that it "doesn't involve money out of nothing", but how has that done so badly? And no, that wasn't the cause of any recent recessions.

Usually the argument I hear is some type of anti-Federal Reserve paranoia.

65  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How did your precinct vote in 2012? on: April 18, 2015, 11:39:47 pm
69.1% Romney, 29.5% Obama, 0.94% Terry, 0.47% Johnson, 0 votes for Jill Stein.

We need to find the most Democratic precinct in the country and have BRTD move there.

Pretty happy with what I have now:

Republican      MITT ROMNEY AND PAUL RYAN   162   8.15%   
Democratic-Farmer-Labor      BARACK OBAMA AND JOE BIDEN   1711   86.07%

So I've learned about Hola and have started watching this show on Netflix (from Norway) mostly due to some of the rave reviews on the AV Club. Only two episodes in, and I haven't exactly been blown away yet, but I do think it has strong potential. I'm surprised by how graphic it is for a network TV show too. Biggest complaint is that the title character (who obviously should be thought more of as a character loosely based on Hannibal Lecter with the same name rather than Hannibal Lecter) is probably the least interesting one but the autistic FBI guy and the guy who played Morpheus' characters make up for it.

So is there a point when it really picks up? Like I said, haven't been blow away yet but intrigued by the potential.

The Putin point is probably the silliest since he was probably at least in the running for Person of the Year last year.

Also funny with the Rihanna and Beyonce references, since they are still very relevant today.
68  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Buzzfeed kind of epic fails on: April 18, 2015, 10:50:55 am

The last time Hillary Clinton ran for President...the world was actually not that different. Miley Cyrus was around but was Hannah Montana still, Apple just released the FIRST iPhone, some celebrity couples just started! Oh and Vladimir Putin was TIME's Man of the Year, no way that's even conceivable today right? Oh and as for popular TV shows like Mad Men and The Big Bang Theory...yeah they were around, but they just started!

Honestly this feels like a Clickhole article to parody that 2007 wasn't really much different from today. Which is funny, because if you compared 2007 to 1999, there'd be some massive differences.

70  General Politics / Individual Politics / Should residents of American Samoa receive US citizenship? on: April 17, 2015, 11:49:17 pm
Yes, since the whole "US national" distinction instead seems pretty pointless. It's almost like Wulfric's proposal that civil unions be established for gays with some rights arbirtarily absent for no reason whatsoever besides Moderate Hero compromise.
71  Forum Community / Forum Community / Is the "jao" thing already completely done to death? on: April 17, 2015, 12:38:33 am
Yes, at this point I'd say it's even more played out than the ">" crap.

Remember how Kalwejt would constantly latch onto whatever new forum meme appeared and then beat it completely to death and keep continue beating it into the ground? In this case almost everyone on the forum was Kalwejt.

The only A+ episode I know of off the top of my head was Jose Chung's From Outer Space in their X-Files recap feature, which was also (correctly) deemed one of the ten best TV episodes of all time. But I know there have been others. Didn't one Breaking Bad episode also get an A+?

Also the TV Tropes page can be finalized now.

What a Downer Ending. Also made the thing a Shaggy Dog Story.
