2  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Do you mostly hold the same religious beliefs as your parents? on: April 17, 2014, 08:11:21 pm
No (they are Christian, I'm not religious), and it is generally never discussed.

I'd like to see Markell replace Carper in 2018.
4  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: How do you plan on celebrating Easter this weekend? on: April 17, 2014, 07:06:25 pm
Well I've landed an unpaid four day weekend, so I'll be sitting at home and drinking a lot, I imagine.
5  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Most expensive restaurant meal you've had on: April 17, 2014, 06:27:23 pm
Two or three years ago, I went to an expensive restaurant with a friend with the sole purpose of running up the bill and paying in ten dollar notes.  We got up to $210, much of it from pricey wine choices.

In general I don't like to spend more than $15 on a meal, and I also prefer take-away / delivery to sitting in a restaurant.

I think my 10-year old daughter is enough.

You have a daughter?
7  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you like eating mushrooms? on: April 17, 2014, 06:02:20 pm
I never eat them and even just the smell from cooking them makes me a bit queasy.

I did eat the psilocybin ones about 40 times when I was younger, and those taste better to me than culinary mushrooms (they are still pretty disgusting).

11  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: What general doctor do you have ? on: April 09, 2014, 11:03:30 am
I don't.  The last time I went to a doctor was over eight years ago when I broke my arm.

Yeah, I went about 20 years without seeing one, and then, when I hit 50, I figured I'd better go before the conversation went something like - Grumps - "So doc, what's wrong with me"  Doc - "Everything"......but yeah, when you're young and invincible, why bother?

The thing is, it doesn't even cost me money - it's the one service I'm eligible for.  I just can't be bothered.

On a purely political level, I feel like a jerk, because it goes against everything I stand for. Smiley
12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Can Hillary Clinton win Indiana's 11 electoral votes? on: April 09, 2014, 10:59:48 am
Extremely unlikely but not impossible.  In a Clinton vs. [insert washed up establishment pretend-tea-party candidate name here] race I'd expect the Republican to win by 8-12 points.

People (especially Democrats) forget how reviled Clinton is amongst the conservative base.  Get ready for two more years of Blah blah blah benghazi whitewater monica.
13  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: if youre looking for a job.... on: April 09, 2014, 10:53:27 am
I'd rather work 60 hours a week standing up without any meal or toilet breaks, or any vacation (paid or unpaid), which I have been doing for a couple of years, than ever have to look for a job again.

So, if you're looking for a job, you'd better meet someone who can find you one super quickly.  I've never had any luck through applications.
14  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: How old were you when you could first name all the US Presidents? on: April 09, 2014, 10:43:57 am
All states and their capitals, and Presidents by 8.  It was one of my favourite things to recite at that age, along with all of the characters from Thomas the Tank Engine.  I still can't tell which area of expertise is useful in real life.
15  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: What general doctor do you have ? on: April 09, 2014, 10:36:12 am
I don't.  The last time I went to a doctor was over eight years ago when I broke my arm.
16  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Are you on any type of welfare? on: April 09, 2014, 06:49:29 am
No, and as an adult I've never been eligible due to nationality.  The lack of unemployment insurance or a background of means makes me a fairly frugal consumer and a loyal employee, not that I'd choose to not work if given the choice, but it would give me peace of mind to know that I wouldn't be completely screwed if I were injured or disabled.  I really have to get around to fixing my citizenship status.
17  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Left-Handed, Right-Handed, or Ambidextrous on: April 06, 2014, 06:40:45 am
The only things I can do with my left hand are smoke, type, and juice.

I can do everything else (as well as those three items) with my right hand.
18  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Do you have "the cable TV?" on: April 02, 2014, 06:35:25 am
There is a TV, but its sole use is the USB slot.  There definitely aren't any channels set up.
19  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: are all of your bills paid and up to date? on: April 02, 2014, 06:33:10 am
Yes (rent/utilities/phone/internet, no credit cards).

This has not always been easy to do, but has generally always been the case.  Two years ago, broke and without assistance, I changed electricity providers immediately after a billing period to avoid making a payment due to financial hardship.
20  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: How many TV's do you have in your place of residence? on: April 02, 2014, 06:26:16 am
I don't know, are computers TVs?
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: could the immigration hardliners and the open borders types agree on: April 02, 2014, 06:24:08 am
birthright citizenship will be abolished for anyone born after 2015

Complete non-starter.
22  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of George W. Bush on: April 02, 2014, 04:57:50 am
Second worst president in recent history.  The only thing he has going for him is his personality, which is surprising given how unlikeable his father is.

Going on policy, he may very well be the sort of person that 'hell' as a concept was created for.
23  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Gun Nuts vs. Anti-Gun Nuts: Who is worse? on: April 02, 2014, 04:54:51 am
I feel significantly safer around anti-gun nuts.

In fact, I feel significantly safer living in a country where people don't carry guns on the street.  I haven't seen a gun in years.  Not being around guns has made me an "anti-gun nut."
24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Proud to be from Colorado, eh? Prepare to be profiled. on: April 02, 2014, 04:42:08 am
My main question is why, if I ever ended up living in Colorado, I would ever go to any of the neighboring states other than New Mexico.  (BTW, this isn't just partisan conjecture; the majority of my time spent in Colorado was in Colorado Springs.)
25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Senate Report: Torture Didn't Lead to Bin Laden on: April 02, 2014, 04:39:32 am
We needed a story to confirm that?  OK, thanks, I guess.  Add this one to the list of commonly known 'interpretations' of the Bush administration's policies circa 2005/2006 that has been needlessly proven correct.  I mean, it's too late to change anyone's mind - if you were okay with torture in 2005, why wouldn't you be okay with it now?
