It was fairly obviously going to be Bush to anyone able to think at the time - nearly as likely as Obama's 2012 re-election was. I mean I was 10 so I was pretty stupid and got like 7 states wrong still believing in miracles - PA, MI, MN, HI on the optimistic side and NV, NE, and WV or something on the Kerry side, but even I felt it as a foregone conclusion.

Uh, no. You're way off on that. If Kerry could have flipped one of the close big states, he would have won. Romney was crushed in the EC.

Thought it was a pure-tossup as the day started. Thought Kerry would win when the exit polls started leaking. Thought Bush would win as the real numbers started pouring in.

As someone who had just turned 18 as well as someone who had only really been a truly politically minded person for a couple of years, it taught me an important lesson about the worth, or lack thereof, of exit polling. It also taught me what a buffoon John Zogby was and still is to this day!

How is Solarstorm a legend? I feel like I only learned who he was a few weeks ago.

Well, apparently the WWE has banned the curb stomp finisher. wtf? Lame.

Also, I can't really say I'm too excited about ANY of the matches happening at Extreme Rules on Sunday. I am excited about seeing the crowd reactions to them though since it's in Chicago and they are always nuts. I wonder if Reigns v. Big Show will be booed out of the building...

This really does remind me of the whole Teddy situation. It hasn't quite reached the level that got to yet but things aren't looking promising. It's unfortunate.

Not sure how Oklahoma glorifies God. Can you elaborate?

I'm not going into anymore depth on this.  This is going outside the scope of this board.  Suffice it to say that everyone has the right to gush over any state they choose and to not like the states that they choose.  No one has the right to criticize another for their choices.  No one has the right to tell me I cannot gush over Oklahoma.  I am very glad HD likes his state of New Jersey.  Jersey has a lot of qualities I admire and a lot of things I don't admire.  He just should not call it insulting to intelligence for people to like Oklahoma.  No state is perfect, because it's leaders and citizens are just people and no person is perfect.  Each state has it's strengths and weaknesses.  There are many things I want to change about Oklahoma, mainly a lot of our leaders currently in office, but politics does not and should not determine whether a state is a good place or not.  It is no accident that a few recent studies have named Oklahoma City one of the best places to raise a family.  It is also no accident New Jersey is a leader in education and health care.  It is no accident that California is a leader in technology and up and coming innovations.

Why did California get a mention?

The thing that was so amazing about the whole Russ Powers thing was that we all built him up to be this lady killing legend just based on the name alone... and then when we found out who he really was, it randomly turned out that we were 100% right about him. He lived up to the name (and then some). Epic stuff.

Today, April 19, marks the 20th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.  As you might expect there was a great ceremony in Oklahoma City this morning with President Bill Clinton in attendance as well as Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and the current FBI director.  I know this nation has never forgotten the events of that day and holds the utmost respect for the citizens of Oklahoma City for showing this nation what it truly means to live by the "Oklahoma Standard".  I also know that this nation has a fondness for the City of Oklahoma City because of how we all came together on that fateful day.  We may joke on this forum that Oklahoma City is full of nobodies, but I know for a fact that the majority of the United States does not think negative about Oklahoma City.  They realize how much and how fast we've grown because of our heart and our standard.  Everybody with half a brain realizes that we are so much more than an old, dusty cow town stuck in the 1930's.  Oklahoma City will never go away.  We are some of the strongest group of people you will ever find.

This post shall be awarded 50 death points and may God have mercy on your soul.

How nice of them. The reaction to Clinton being allowed to speak for over 80% of the debate running times should be interesting.

Those kinds of threads will be all over the place with Update gone. Get ready for the deluge.

Yep. The great stabilizer is gone, so anything can happen now.

Remember when people were complaining about Update taking up too much space in the FC board? At least those threads were about real issues. People have no idea how awful this board is going to become post-Update.

I tend to immediately abandon reading any post that it pops up in.

I do hope Bushie re-friends on facebook the people he violently purged now that Update is over forever.

Seconded.

Still a solid majority for FS. Good to see.

I'm going to forever miss the Update. I know the haters will hate, but it kept this place going for a long time. Without it, I am sure you will see less and less of a good number of posters around here.

I remember the luls here when Bushie took breaks. I can't imagine what it will be like now that it's permanent.

You're still friends with him on Facebook at least. You can continue to follow the story there.

It'll be interesting to see if he tries to start a blog again too. That was quite the epic fail last time though.
