Forum Default (the first option).

Down here I'm used to using the last two choices. It makes much more sense, actually. What would make even more sense would be to use YYYYMMDDHHMMSS with a 24 hour clock (army time.. haha).

Extra question: does anyone in the States say the date June 15 without using the ordinal version of 15? They do it here and it drives me crazy. They will even say the number and then the month without using the ordinal. "The movie will be in theatres fifteen June." Oh, and "The concerts will start on June fifteen." This is very important to me. So is the usage of "maths" and "sport."

Rationality is a valuable asset. Therefore, irrationality is an invaluable asset.

I fail to see how she is making women's rights the main focus of her campaign but I will give you that she is a woman and might be campaigning.

Pretty bad, but it's easy to avoid. I do recall in church enjoying playing along with it because it's all so exactly the same you can completely tune out and still play through it. And from the congregation it's easy to mouth the words so it looks like you're participating.

My church insisted that worship was a huge priority for believers, so I found it a shame so much praise music felt so uninspired.

I find modern pop/dance music more irritating. Tonight is the night / we love the love / tonight whoaaaaaa

Would you blot out a section of a painting you otherwise admired?

Funny you mention Wendy's, as during most of my jobless times I said I refused to work in fast food. I don't remember why, exactly. Maybe I was just an ass. In the end, though, I did end up applying for several, though I didn't end up working for any of them.

I have met plenty of people who turned up their noses at the notion of physical labour, though. Or who look down on those that do that for a living as lesser. These people are fools.

The fact that it has continued, hasn't stopped, has endured over the years, it has maintained, perpetuated in existence, and failed to cease.

Not at all.

When debates begin is when I will start actually paying attention.
11  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Have your interest in US politics increased or declined after joining Atlas? on: September 25, 2014, 06:41:34 pm
Politics? The game is boring and soul crushing with the current situation and its players. So I've tuned out. But international affairs, elections, arguing the issues.. still entertaining. And this place is always good for a laugh. But strictly political stuff (if that makes sense) makes me want to drown.
12  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: have you ever done day labor? on: September 25, 2014, 04:35:32 am
Yeah, I did a couple odd jobs for people when I moved down here, usually helping friends and relos get rid of stuff for their renovations. Pulling out carpet, throwing piles of rubbish into dumpsters, that kind of thing. It was money. Similar to the short stint I had for a demolition company, although at least for them there were some toys to play with and be around (jackhammering is kind of fun).

I really liked it when it first came out. Now it's a little tired for me.

Horrible person. He means well but is a naive utopian who has no understanding of how the real world works.

You didn't actually say anything.

Self-aggrandizing stupidity.

Probably not.
18  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: if Stephen Hawking is right on: September 20, 2014, 04:21:02 am
better link:


Hawking acknowledges in the essay that this threat is highly theoretical. A particle accelerator that could even reach 100bn GEV would need to be larger than the Earth itself, and would “unlikely to be funded in the present economic climate.”

That last sentence is very amusing.

By the way, someone calling the Higgs boson the "God particle" is helpfully letting you know they shouldn't be listened to.

Quote: A little sappy, but we are all allowed to be inspired by silly quotes. Likely not Lennon, though. Pet peeve, sorry.

Video: Tedious country song about.. country things? Really, again? Stop it, country music. You are better than this.
22  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Was Atlas less partisan in the past? on: September 20, 2014, 01:05:01 am
It was differently partisan.

Go browse through the 2004 boards sometime.

Doors he drink the blood of the illuminati or partake in a blood drinking illuminati ritual? The answer may not be as interesting as the question.

25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Perhaps the most out-of-touch video ever on: September 16, 2014, 07:14:26 am
I suspect that if you gave any of the people in this thread, complaining about this video, $400,000, they would be back down to $0 within a month or so.

Sure. I'd buy a modest house and a modest car outright. And be very, very relieved, for a time.
