The family (apparently regularly) drives 16 hours round trip to stay somewhere for maybe a day and a half? It's clear that Bushie's bizarre eccentricities are genetic.

Meh. I've twice arrived in Chicago around 9AM, and then went home around 9:30-9:45PM the same day. Granted I took a bus each time.

Yes, I thought it was one of the most exciting and thrilling things ever.

Might I also point out, what on Earth do you think I heard at college keg parties? Sure I did go to some "indie" ones but starting out it was typical keg parties with typical keg party music, meaning having to put up with this about a million times.

Although actually I don't mind it when drunk. That's basically the only time I like hip-hop music. In fact I use it as a measure of too drunk to drive, if hip-hop is playing and I like it, then yep, drunk.

Sober: That song is some of the most idiotic and disgusting trash ever recorded.

Of course not. Is it racist to hate Tyler Perry movies?

For the record I've found that if a type of music is a target frequently and has a large Hatedom, it's a given that I hate it too (hip-hop, metal, country, pop and the garbage that 20RP12 likes).

You basically exclusively like a few incredibly specific types of post-punk music and you think everything else is garbage, right?  That's not racist, you just have ridiculously idiosyncratic taste in music.  You probably know why better than anyone else. 

I would just say, maybe give non-post punk music a try.  Maybe hip-hop isn't for you, but don't seem open-minded at all.  And, if you're going to compare an entire genre to a single hack film director, you make yourself look like an idiot. 

Correction: incredibly specific types of post-punk music, as well as Blink-182, which is all sorts of hilarious. But yes, "open-minded" is not exactly in BRTD's vocabulary.

It shouldn't be surprising at all considering that: 1-Blink-182 is a "incredibly specific type of post-punk music" and 2-quite popular amongst people in my scene and like me for reasons I could get into but would result in a long essay not many would be interested in. Let me just say my "top 3 Blink-182 songs" thread on a forum mostly dedicated to trading emoviolence records got well over 100 replies and almost all positive.

Also you people act like I've never heard hip-hop before and am not familiar with it. What do you think all the jocks and bros at my high school listened to? In truth in high school the main reason why my musical taste ended up not being "diverse" (well not exactly), is because I got so into those "incredibly specific types of post-punk music" and VERY deep into it I never saw much need to listen to much else. Furthermore those genres themselves can be quite diverse. Rainer Maria, Explosions in the Sky and Ampere don't sound a thing alike. This isn't a black metal vs. death metal thing. Yeah my tastes are quite niche, but I don't see that as a bad thing and certainly not much different than the suburban bros who don't listen to much else besides hip-hop.

The Obamanation is the most obvious case for me, and why I refuse to consider him the worst poster or completely useless. I'd much rather read his stuff than any of the election time trolls or anyone who regularly posts in the 2016 forum for a couple examples.

I understand Corbett is so unpopular because he's kind of a dead fish and terrible unaccomplished leader. So I'll go with him, less dangerous.

BREAKING NEWS: Younger woman more attractive than older woman

Anyway, this shouldn't really matter. Pretty much any idiot can be in the NH state house, that's its whole appeal. (and this guy seems like a nasty piece of work anyway from his Wikipedia page)

Actually, he seems to be a lot better than most Republicans. Opposes the death penalty and supports marijuana legalization. Making stupid comments is to be expected from Republicans today, so that still puts him ahead of the vast majority of them.

Lots of customer service jobs will advertise a pay that's really just the potential one you could earn after bonuses. It's like how some cell carriers will advertise "Get all this for just $X a month! +fees" and then put all those fees in the really fine print. It's not a scam, nor is it really false advertising or all that dishonest anymore than most advertising really, nor is it even that inaccurate as the bonuses often aren't even that hard to achieve, hell I once had a job where you could make an extra 50 cents an hour just for working entire scheduled shifts during the pay period and not being late and actually doing your job during that time instead of hanging around with unauthorized breaks or in busy states. But as we all know Bushie is basically completely incapable of doing even that.

I need to find J. J.'s old posts about gay marriage, where he basically argued it shouldn't be allowed at all because some people might use it abuse pensions or something, and at one point actually unironically used the phrase "neofascist loony left" to describe supporters of it.

And before you all just laugh and say "oh whatever it's J. J." this is when for some reason he was actually taken seriously.

Here's the only thing I think anyone needs to know about him: He was actually removed from his positioning governing Hispaniola because he was seen as too brutal. By the same people who were carrying out the Spanish Inquisition.

Kind of like how I think the only thing anyone needs to know about Croat nationalism is that some officers in the SS refused to cooperate with the Ustashe because they saw them as too savage and brutal.

Guys, Bushie should NOT be a pastor. That's probably a worse career path for him than seeking A+ Certification.

A couple years ago on another forum I posted at, we had a breakdown of like this: 20% Christian, 50% Decidedly not Christian but not particularly anti-Christian, just apathetic and with an attitude of "Well if you're liberal/progressive still I don't care" and 30% virulently anti-Christian and Einzige-esque. So we felt quite a bit outnumbered and kind of banded together, had lots of PM stuff and AIM chats (heh showing the era here) and I got to know the other people in the "Christian clique" pretty well. No one in it was Catholic. At the time I didn't put much thought into it. I just sort of accepted that people heavily involved in the scene, even if Christian were never Catholic, it was just a group you didn't find it, and never put much thought into this because it was how I discovered things to be in the years prior. I never quite thought as to why this is and the rather interesting sociological reasons when you think about it. The fact that this is even true if transferred to other countries is interesting as well. But there's clearly some sort of effect and factor going on here that's more than just political, if compared to the rest of the population you can't just chalk it up to "the Catholic Church doesn't represent their rather progressive views of Christianity well and thus none of them stay Catholic even if brought up that way." What exactly is the big underlying difference here?

A Most Wanted Man

If you're familiar with the director's other work, then you'll know why this isn't for everyone. It's actually a very action-less movie for the most part and isn't even really a Law & Order or CSI style procedural either, it's mostly about people. It's slow but can be interesting and rewarding, Hoffman was fantastic, it was another one of his roles that he just totally blended into and was totally believable as someone in Germany intelligence. One rather silly thing about it is that all the allegedly German characters still spoke English to each other and in fact there wasn't a single line of German in the film. Expected with an English-speaking writer and mostly American cast, but still...

Hoffman really shined at the ending too, and it makes you miss him all the more.

For the record and as I've said in some places before, in my scene and subculture I've interacted with many people outside the US, including many who are Christian (actually from places like Scandinavia probably a higher percentage are practicing Christians than the population at large, which perhaps isn't that surprising since it's not part of mainstream culture there) and many who post on their Facebooks or last.fm pages about finding Christ and a personal relationship with Jesus stuff that oakvale finds so creepy (including at least one from Ireland FYI) and counting all that I still have never met anyone identifying as Catholic. Including those from very heavily Catholic countries. Now you might say that this makes a statistically insignificant number of the population, and you'd be correct, but still I'd say since this stands in such stark contrast to the country overall it's clear that there's something at work and influencing here and thus you clearly can't just say "everyone in Ireland/country thinks this way".

I remember getting in a debate with belgiansocialist about this and people who are involved in the scene in Belgium and those who still identify as Christian and go to Christian hardcore shows and he basically came to the conclusion of "Wow your scene sounds like a really messed up cult."
