Aren't you the one that's had "three heart attacks"?

Three that I thought may have been silent heart attacks, but none were officially diagnosed or even seen by a doctor.  I'm going to go on the assumption that I have not had a heart attack.

Yes, we know that you played them up for dramatic effect here (no big surprise there), but Jeff, your health is clearly in a severely poor state.  You are literally killing yourself through your bad habits.

We're unbanning Einzige?

W.

T.

F.

Clearly there has been a palace coup amongst the moderation.

There was actually stronger support to unban him than there was to unban you.

Can Allison cook? Will she cook your meals once you two tie the knot?

Not really.

She can't cook either?? What will you two do?

We will have to learn.  I do not want McDonald's cooking my meal every night...

Sure, it may not be McDonald's, but do you really not want prepared food every night?  That seems to be what you want virtually every day.

It's an infrigement of cities' rights!

Cities don't have inherent rights; they are (at least in Oklahoma and Michigan) creatures of the state.

As Oklahoma Territory was a creature of the US government.

I don't understand your point.

Oh lord, what a joke. I wonder how long it will take before somebody reverses the damage that this has done.

Has it done any damage?  Was any city proposing to pass a higher wage or sick leave law?  If not, no damage was actually done.

Quote from: ThinkProgress
The law will stymie the efforts of activists in Oklahoma City, where a labor federation has led the push on a petition to raise the city’s minimum wage to $10.10 per hour.
ThinkProgress: Governor Bans Minimum Wage Increases And Paid Sick Leave Laws

A petition to do something and actually getting close to accomplishing it are two different things.  I'm not up-to-date on the Oklahoma labor situation, but did this petition actually have a decent chance of bringing about any change?

Universal background checks are a reasonable procedure, but what's the substance on the back end?

Is it going to stop the mentally-ill? No. Selling to the mentally-ill has been illegal since 1968. Jared Loughner failed a military psyche evaluation, but he did not have his buying privileges revoked by the current NICS system.

Will universal checks stop Adam Lanza from murdering his mother and stealing her weapons? No.

Will universal background checks stop straw purchases like those prior to Columbine? No.

Will universal background checks stop the North Hollywood BOA shootout? No.

The only difference with background checks is that they annoy the gun show militia-types, who have nothing to do with life in NYC. Furthermore, it seems those somewhat unsavory militia characters are rarely implicated in mass killings with weapons.

Nobody is arguing that it will stop all killings.  I fail to see why our goal should simply be to stop mass killings.  There is no harm, in my view, in enacting a universal background check requirement.

Bad music and endorsed Romney. HP.

She actually didn't endorse Romney.  But her music is still horrible, and she is still an HP.

...Giving us even more reason to laugh at anyone who believed Link was Einzige.

No; you have the same amount of reason to laugh, because Meursault already disclosed that he wasn't Link and was Einzige.  Seriously, dude... you've gotta stop spazzing out about this Grumps/Link thing.  You were more amusing when you talked about Sneakers and Ingress all the time.

I can fix spaghetti, it's pretty simple, I'm just not used to having to keep up with several pots at once (one for the sauce and one for the noodles).  I can do it, though.

Morden, no I never fix non-meat dinners.  I do not like vegetarian dishes.  No point to them for me.

Jeff, it's not several pots; it's two pots: (1) pasta and (2) sauce.  I mean, if you're making meatballs, you may have a pan for those as well, but I generally cook those in advance and add them to the sauce.  At that point, you can just leave the sauce on low until it heats up, stirring occasionally (especially if you have meatballs).

This is not a complex thing to undertake.

How do you need assistance to fix spaghetti?
36  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Bloomberg plans a $50 million challenge to the NRA on: April 15, 2014, 09:12:50 pm
The NRA, sadly, has moved from a pro-gun rights organization to a pro-gun/anti-liberal organization.  They now seem more focused on opposing Obama and the Democrats under the facade of supporting gun rights.  Look at the NRA's flip-flop on background checks.

I certainly don't support Bloomberg on a lot of things, especially some of more liberal stances on guns, and I think he severely mismanaged Mayors Against Illegal Guns.  MAIG never should have opposed the Thune Amendment or supported the high capacity magazine ban.  That moved the goals of the organization from simply opposing illegal guns to trying to broaden what exactly it was that was made illegal, and that wasn't really what the name of the organization sounded like.

So if Bloomberg wants this to be successful, he's going to have to take it slowly and not get overambitious; if he does, the organization will be labelled anti-gun and liberal, and he won't get independents' support.

This thread was actually meant to be taken seriously....but now that I see the results...yikes...

Why would you expect such a universal statement to be taken seriously?  When you start off a sentence, "Is everybody ...", probably at least 99.9999% of the time, the answer is going to be "No".  It's very hard to find a trait among humanity that is truly universal.
38  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: Petition to ban Krazen on: April 15, 2014, 08:38:32 pm
The fact King was on mod review while krazen continues his trolling undisturbed says a lot about inconsistency.

He hasn't had a post of his reported in 13 days.  If there are trolling posts of krazen's out there, why aren't you reporting them?

Meursault - Unbanned after an appeal (permitted new account for Einzige).

Off topic, but did Teddy actually threaten to kill somebody?? Yikes!!!

Terribly off topic, and no, he did not.

Rightwing bias.

Because I have a blue avatar?  No, kid... I realize you're new here, but if there's one thing I'm not, it's a mod who makes moderator decisions based on what color avatar the subject is.

My suggestion is for you to cool down, delete this thread, and put the guy on ignore.  You're not going to get anywhere by calling this guy names, and nothing that he said is banworthy.

It may have been a bit harsh, but you were pretty clearly the aggressor, Randy; this thread isn't really helping your case or helping you gain any sympathy.
46  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: Let's talk about Guntaker. on: April 15, 2014, 07:02:48 pm
Simfan, had you have just PMed a mod, we could've easily told you that he's from Britain.

Yes, but that's not the usual way things work here, no? I wouldn't want to be seen as denying people their say on such matters. I was going to post this in the Comedy Institute, but that wouldn't have been appropriate, nor would have making a new thread in Forum Community.

So you made this thread as some sort of way to try to fit in?
47  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Update Season XIV: The new chapter on: April 15, 2014, 06:45:50 pm
Still curious about this question….

Do you even try watch what you're eating at all anymore?

Or are you still eating as unhealthy as ever?


I've been trying to mix in more Subway.  For instance, I had Subway tonight as opposed to Little Caesar's which I was craving.

Why don't you cook for yourself again?

I'll get there, eventually.

You've been saying that for years.  There's nothing stopping you from starting now.

Joe Republic confirmed that he's British

Not exactly.  He confirmed that he's from Britain, and he's right.  Whether or not he's "British" is something we can't know without seeing his papers.  But we don know he is from Britain.

Thank you for this information.  Back in March, J-Mann sent me by PM a list of questions to ask during the interview.  I have picked out two or three of my favorites and ask them during the interviews.  I do change them up every now and then, but I have two or three favorites.

Bushie, what are these favorite questions?

Where do we order lunch from?
What hotels do you recommend for when it snows?
What's the policy on brief relaxations in the unisex bathroom?

(I'm kidding, of course)
