51  Forum Community / Forum Community / Opinion of buying cell phones with 2-year contracts on: August 27, 2015, 09:47:21 pm
Only dumbs who can't do math do this anymore.

I can either pay $40/month plus data for a phone under contract or $15 a month with no contract. Duh. The contract price is not worth it. Don't ever do this again, seriously. Just pay the full price like you would with a computer or TV instead of expecting your cable or Internet provider to subsidize you while you sign away your soul for two years.
52  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Was jmfcst a better poster than Einzige? on: August 27, 2015, 07:13:48 pm
Over on a ad, jmfcst has today has today started a thread on the sexual orientation of the top 10 mass murderers in American history. I'm not kidding. And he is apparently trying to insinuate some grand Pointe over the quotation mark fact quotation mark based on his half-assed research that 8 of the top 10 serial killers were supposedly gay. The thread has gone on for six pages now. Ziggy was a crap poster to be sure, but never this bad.

I just linked to that thread above. Now please read Einzige's posts in it and you'll note that despite what was just said, jmfcst is still managing to be only the second worst poster in it.

Yes, I've mostly just binge watched this show all day and it's awesome. Of course not being absolute f[inks]ing trash makes it better than South Park obviously but it's awesome by most standards.

You do realize this is basically just "describe a Republican who voted for Rendell"?

Here's a perfect example, a thread where jmfcst is utterly terrible and any decent person would tell him off, and yet in doing so Einzige actually manages to be worse: http://atlasafterdark.freeforums.net/thread/2200/sexual-preference-mass-murderers-history
56  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Is Donald Trump a sincere Christian? on: August 27, 2015, 11:59:57 am
To put it mildly: I doubt it. Especially since he made some anti-religion comments before deciding to run for President as a Republican.

I doubt he's on the level of say Andrew Cuomo, who I'm not only convinced is a closet atheist but also privately holds Richard Dawkins-esque opinions, but he's still at least an "apatheist" and some of his pandering comments are a tad amusing, see the "I love the Bible" comment.
57  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How brutal is this Scott Walker clip? on: August 27, 2015, 11:54:12 am
Walker strikes me as someone who might work well as a more local candidate but not nationally. He can probably give better answers if asked about the state budget or something, but that's not what wins Presidential elections.

I remember one of his ads I saw a lot in late 2014 (remember the Twin Cities market expands into Wisconsin) which was pretty good, it was quite simple, just him looking at the camera and talking about the economic growth in Wisconsin during his Governorship. "Our unemployment rate has dropped from X% to only Y%! We've created XXX,XXX new jobs! And Wisconsin has now moved up and is one of the top 4 Midwestern states for lowest unemployment. Not last, in the top 4!"

Of course the ad is quite misleading, EVERYWHERE had economic growth during that period, and if you look at the list that appeared on the screen when he bragged about Wisconsin being "top 4" you'd see that it was just comparing Wisconsin amongst a list of 10 states. So basically Wisconsin ranked 4 out of 10, OK not exactly a terrible place to be but not something one would usually brag about as an amazing success story. But the ad's style I think worked well. Wish I could find the ad but all searching for him now brings up the Presidential campaign instead of his 2014 campaign so it'll take awhile.

But that sort of advertising and policy wonk attitude doesn't cut it amongst an electorate where Donald Trump is leading.

No as there should be no official language(s) at all.

I am both a real and Forum Liberal.

An example of someone who is a Real Liberal and Forum Conservative is Antonio if you're not sure what I'm referring to. Vosem meanwhile is a good example of a blue avatar who is a Forum Liberal. Basic, your position on "Forum issues" like mod overreach and bannings.

Murphy.

Yes you heard me correctly. Grayson is not someone we should be running for Senate and should stay in a safe House district, and yeah his stance on the Iran deal lowered his stock a lot to me.

DailyKos used to be full of Grayson love, they're pretty scathing now: http://m.dailykos.com/story/2015/07/16/1402687/-Alan-Grayson-Is-An-Iran-Deal-Truther

The man used to be a reporter here in Tallahassee, where he was fired. He seems to have been quite a loose cannon.

And yet he was still able to get a gun.

Well Indiana had Dude Fest, but Kentucky actually had some pretty prominent fests too in Louisville. But since I've actually been to Dude Fest, Indiana.

Don't worry, there's still hope. There's always hope.

Whoa. That's almost a verbatim quote of a certain Hundredth lyric. Hundredth being one of the bands whose shirts I ordered.
66  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Opinion of Varavour/Simfan on: August 25, 2015, 11:01:59 pm
Wait what's going on, I'm catching up after not posting for a while?

In a nutshell, very damning evidence that he had a sock on AAD surfaced, including a time when the sock replied to a comment clearly aimed at Simfan and actually referred to himself (imagine if I had a sock, and answered a question aimed at that sock while making a reference to "BRTD" in the same post.) It was later deleted but preserved. Bacon King compiled tons of other evidence. This wouldn't be a huge deal of course since AAD doesn't ban socks except that: 1-the sock is a continuation of a poster here, meaning the sock also existed here and 2-the sock was responsible for an extremely creepy action. So bad that it was deleted by the owner. Now Morden insists the evidence isn't enough to ban him here, which is fun, sock witch hunts here are far worse than the socks themselves (see JoMCaR), but we can still express our opinions.
67  Forum Community / Forum Community / Is there such a thing as a "late early life crisis"? on: August 25, 2015, 10:56:32 pm
I'm just wondering now if the binge purchase I did of a bunch of band shirts (more than I ever have in one instance before) is kind of equivalent to some 40something housewife getting a tattoo...
68  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Why is there such an overlap between the "scene" and evangelical Christianity? on: August 25, 2015, 10:52:14 pm
What scene are you talking about then? Like the hardcore punk/noise/garage rock revival scene? People who have shows in basements and backyards?

Basically that, yes.

Do you mean Twee hipsters? People who listen to The Current?

There is not a significant overlap between either of those groups and evangelical Christianity.

As has been pointed out before, I think you are way overestimating the cultural significance of your individual church and possibly your own group of friends, if you erroneously think that they alone constitute "a scene".

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_hardcore

And look at people like Brian Fallon and Dustin Kensrue.

Mr. Morden says no.

All I've said was that I didn't see any evidence that Simfan has made any additional socks (besides the ones we already know about from years ago) here on the Atlas forum.  Whether he made any socks on AAD, I have no idea.  I'm not a mod there.  He's obviously not going to be banned on this forum for making AAD socks.

If you have evidence that he made socks *here*, on Atlas, then feel free to share it with us.

Which post are you talking about?  BK's post about RickRoll?  You're saying that because someone using RickRoll's email wrote about Anwar Awlaki somewhere else on the internet, he must be Simfan?  Please explain the logic of that.  And Simfan registered on the forum in 2011.  Why the heck would he care about Update in 2010, when RickRoll was here?

Hmmmm I'll point that out there.

"guy with a face tattooed on his face"?

What the hell? I've never seen any guy like that in a band. More like tattooed sleeve, yeah that for sure, but facial tattoos?

Only in the sense of wearing a band shirt from a band with a mostly female fanbase.

Yes the evidence compiled on AAD is pretty damning. Simfan was trolling Update for years claiming to be people who knew Bushie in real life.
