2  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Should it be "fewer" instead of “less”? on: Today at 03:44:49 am
Strictly speaking, 'fewer' is used for items that can be counted, while 'less' is for something more abstract that cannot easily be measured.  So in the context of 'people', 'fewer' would be correct.

However, 'less people' is often used and could be considered correct as well, depending on the context.  In the context given, they may not intend to specifically measure the number of people using the warning lights, and are talking about people in a more general way.  So in that sense, 'less' would be acceptable.

Fairfield was Trump's worst county in CT.  Huh

Though to your point, it was also Kasich's best.

I'm kind of surprised Trump didn't pander to the base on this one, and double down on the backwards position.

Actually, being loudly pro-LGBT rights is a good politics for him in literally every remaining close state after IN.  It could hurt in WV, but so what if he gets 60% instead of 70% there? Perhaps he would have a very different position if it were the 3/1 states voting on 6/7?

You seem to be under the impression that Trump isn't just winging his way through this campaign, and is rather some kind of issue-microtargeting seven-dimensional chess player.

This was the same poll that had Hillary +12 over Trump and +6 over Cruz.  So yeah... no.

In one day, Torie's PR campaign has successfully promoted Hudson from 2nd place all the way to 4th place!  Good job!

The final results are in, and Hudson managed to climb all the way up the ranks to finish in 8th place!  Congratulations, Torie!

"A wicked woman is given as a portion to a wicked man: but a godly woman is given to him that feareth the Lord. A dishonest woman contemneth shame: but an honest woman will reverence her husband. A shameless woman shall be counted as a dog; but she that is shamefaced will fear the Lord. A woman that honoureth her husband shall be judged wise of all; but she that dishonoureth him in her pride shall be counted ungodly of all. A loud crying woman and a scold shall be sought out to drive away the enemies."

According to the half plus seven rule, the minimum age for a 90-year old's partner is 52.  Obviously that's a big difference versus 40, but there's still a 38 year gap between 52 and 90.  At that point the 'rule' clearly breaks down.

Of course, we're all assuming that a 90-year old is looking for any kind of sexual relationship from their partner.

What exactly do you mean when the "half plus seven" rule breaks down?

I think I just explained what I mean...

A 90-year old is apparently forbidden from being in a relationship with anybody younger than 52.  But even that age creates a yuuge and fairly uncomfortable gap between both of them.

Ugh what a half plus seven violating creep.

You do realise that 'rule' isn't actually the law?

Uh, who cares? It's legal for me to f[inks] 16-year olds in Minnesota but that doesn't make it OK.

What? You mean the age of consent in Minnesota is 16?

Oh my God.

It's 16 in well over half of the states:





Blue = 16, gold = 17, green = 18, Texas = 18 with a two-year 'close in age' exception
17  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Trump doubles down on "woman card" charge on Morning Joe on: April 28, 2016, 01:45:26 am
Does anyone think the Democrats would nominate a guy with Hillary Clinton's record at this time? If Hillary Clinton was Hugh Rodham, a friend and senior adviser to Governor and President Bill Clinton who went on to serve as Senator from New York and Secretary of State, would this individual do as well right now?

You mean Hugh Rodham didn't lose a Senate race in Florida by 40 points in this scenario?  Smiley
18  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Has Trump essentially won the Republican nomination? on: April 28, 2016, 12:12:10 am
Yes, Red Neck Republicans have cursed the Republican Party and the nation with this megalomaniac, who believes women are dogs, slobs, fat pigs, and disgusting animals, with this megalomaniac who advocates carpet bombing babies and toddlers, with this megalomaniac who took 24 hours to publicly disavow the endorsement he received from radical racist and KKK leader David Duke, and only disavowed Duke when forced to do so because the media was covering his refusal extensively, with this megalomaniac who believes Mexican men are rapists and murderers, with this megalomaniac who has branded all Muslims as terrorists. 

Yes, Trump is, as of April 26, 2016, for all intents and purposes, the Presidential nominee of the Republican Party.

Trump will now have no problems at all in winning more than 1237 delegates.   

Winnie!  You're alive!  We were worried about you after Tuesday's results came in.

How do you feel knowing that three in five of Republicans in your own state support Trump?  Or, in a room of ten Republicans, you would likely be the only Cruz supporter?  Smiley

Yet a hypothetical fantasy Hillary Clinton indictment gets 100000000000000000000000000000x as much press as this does.

Hillary's indictment is simply holding her accountable for her deliberate efforts to hide the truth, you see, while this case of Trump defrauding thousands of people out of their money will make for great courtroom drama.  Think of the ratings!

Even in a victory scenario I don't think Trump carries Florida or Nevada.
Many of my (Nevadan) friends are young Hispanic Republicans who would vote Trump over Hillary.

Interesting; none of my (Nevadan) friends would vote Trump over Hillary.

Does my anecdote trump yours, I wonder?


Trump's even over 50% in the blue blood island towns of RI.  Didn't see that coming.

Has anybody checked in on Winfield?  I hope he's okay...

If you have one of these, you are in the 1%.  Hillary probably had one installed in her home, paid for by Goldman Sachs, but Bernie would have to google what one is first.
