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.

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.

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.

12  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Carson: ISIL is like Political Correctness on: September 15, 2014, 04:10:57 am

Dr. Ben Carson, a neurosurgeon and the author of six best-selling books, said the Islamic State wants to destroy Western civilization and establish a caliphate and that its “convert-or-die doctrine” mirrors some of the ideas pushed by the “political-correctness police” in America.

“Our enemies’ desire to establish a caliphate is no joke,” said Dr. Carson in a Sept. 6 commentary. “Their convert-or-die doctrine parallels some of the social philosophies enforced by the political-correctness police in this country.”

Crazy lauds him in the comments as a man of "common sense" who is "getting more savvy everyday."

You might add that if you're using another irc client, the server is irc.mibbit.com

Then again if you couldn't figure that out you probably shouldn't use irc.
14  General Discussion / Religion & Philosophy / Re: Joel Osteen and the Happiness Gospel on: September 13, 2014, 09:41:17 am
Osteen is a major false prophet.

Is he even a "profit"? Anyway, what's the difference between a false profit and a true profit? I mean, what's the process for making that determination (is there something more to it than that they say or don't say what you want to hear)? And is there such a thing as a minor false profit?

The Bible details the ways to tell a false prophet from a real prophet (if I recall correctly, I'm a bit hazy on the Bible these days). For example: If their points disagree with Scripture or if their predictions about future events prove faulty, they are false prophets.

Another good indicator is someone who says what needs to be said at the time, even if people don't comprehend its truth until much later. It's easy to contradict Osteen with a basic knowledge of the Bible, and it's plain to see that the spirit of his message is one of complacency and convenience and greed. It's something Christians ought to be furious about.

Y'know, LeBron, most dudes would be excited to be surrounded by chicks and have so little competition in any club they joined.

Generally lesbians are not interested in having sex with gay men though. Actually from my experience having many gay male friends, they usually hate lesbians and vice versa.

I've always found it odd that while gay men and straight women can be such compatible friends, you never see gay female-straight male friendships. If anything, your "typical" gay man often feels perfectly at ease around the opposite sex and may prefer the company of women to the company of men (in a non-sexual context), while lesbians often seem to avoid men in general at all costs.

The lesbians that I know have many male friends, gay or straight, and I often hear that the more stereotypically masculine lesbians get along with straight males splendidly. I don't know what lesbians you've met.. "avoid men in general at all costs?" That's downright bizarre. How does one manage that?

Salmond's fist rose upwards, and then his index and middle fingers stuck up. "Check, please." His voice echoed through the chambers. At home, Tony Blair watched him on his television, grimacing. He knew this narrative was going nowhere.

After thinking about it for more than five seconds, calling it the heel makes perfect sense if you're not talking about the generic, square shaped loaves.
20  Forum Community / Forum Community / What do you call the first and last slices of a loaf of bread? on: September 09, 2014, 08:15:43 am
My partner looked at me like I was from another country when I called those slices the "heels." I began thinking perhaps it was just a weird thing my family said. It certainly isn't. She calls them the crusts, which makes sense. I have no idea why we call them heels.

End Crust Heel Butt Nose Nothing Other

!!! Bonus Question Wow !!! If you never eat these slices please also vote for the last option.
21  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: adults that wont drink water? on: September 08, 2014, 09:54:39 pm
Lots of people I know almost never drink water, but I don't think most of them refuse to. My partner gets annoyed if there is no alternative. I have already bitched about how annoying I find that.

I adore water and I think it's a result of my stoner years. When you've got severe cottonmouth, well, there's just no competition. If you've had a big night drinking, plenty of water will prevent that hangover. Sweaty from working or working out? Yeah, try and feel better with a Coke, idiot. I'll be at the drinking fountain. PEACE

I assumed he was being sarcastic by calling it tiny.

So I ate there last night. Had a chicken BLT. Turkish bread, American style bacon, plenty of delicious chips (fries) with a little tub of mayo to dip them in. Delicious. For sure I'll need to go a bit harder on my exercise bike to offset the beautiful culinary atrocity I enjoyed last night.

At least a didn't get a burger like most everyone else. My partner got the tex mexy one with queso and salsa and those spiral cut potatoes, with yet more queso to dip chips in. Mmm. Bushie swag.
23  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Are deliberately unemployed people a drain on society? on: September 08, 2014, 09:28:04 pm
Angus, my intention is to talk only about those who are not engaged in behaviour that would likely result in present or future gains for more than oneself. Think of an able bodied 25 year old with no physical or mental ailments and no pressing responsibilities or goals who survives by government payment or constant mooching off of monied relatives or friends. They aren't earning their keep, and their free time is spent purely in leisure and selfishness.
24  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Are deliberately unemployed people a drain on society? on: September 08, 2014, 09:17:37 pm
Linus, the sink is society, and there are pipes (the economy) that bring water (resources) to and from the sink in a cycle. From this a deliberately unemployed person would be more like a leak in the pipes (if you think they are draining resources out of the economy).

Or, you could take one of the literal definitions of "drain": something that uses up resources (up being the key word). This was my (and dead0man's, I presume) intention. He also called them leaches I believe. That's excellent imagery.

And yet another alternative one could stop being so goddamn pedantic. Smiley
