Kohl's isn't for fats? I thought that's what they catered to?

I used to buy my fat guy clothes at Kohls. Size 38 JNCOs off the clearance rack. I had pockets for daysssssssssssssssss.

I'd like to see a show that has two islands, one with 10 Republican senators and the other with 10 Democratic senators. After a while, we could see how little island has fared.

I somehow think the Democratic island would end up like the stranded vikings on Greenland (we don't want to club seals!), and the Republican island would end up like Easter Island (sure we used up all our resources, but look what we built!)

So essentially, a Republicans vs. Democrats season of Survivor. I'd watch. Get Jeff Probst on it!

I only had 3 sandwiches instead of my normal 4.  The malt I had at lunch kind of upset my stomach a bit.

I'm interested to see if Jeremy is going to be able to pull this off. He has been a fantastic player in my eyes so far. But if Dale is the next boot, and the merge is next, there are going to be 4 pairs with no bad blood between them and just 4 - Jeremy, Natalie, Alec and Julie - singles. The singles have all been given more complex and interesting edits than the pairs, which makes me think that the singles are somehow going to turn the tables, or at least put up a good fight.

Right now, the real power seems to continue to lay with the old Coyopa, since they have majorities on both sides. There are 3 in the core Coyopa alliance: Josh, Alec and Wes. Baylor and Jacq make 4 and 5. Jon, Missy and Reed are currently roped in as a marriage-of-convenience 6 through 8, Keith is a marriage-of-convenience number 9 so long as he makes it to the merge.

Jeremy, Natalie and Julie are in a really tough spot. They already burned their bridge with Jon in that disastrous 5-4 tribal split, who's now found a new alliance (with his girlfriend, her ally, and her ally's mother, but whatever). Reed wasn't with them to begin with, so he's not going to be with them now with a better option on the table. They might be able to pull in Dale, but his vote wouldn't matter against a block of 9. And he's likely to get bounced before the merge anyway.

Most of you couldn't even come close to the level of athleticism required to be a successful cheerleader even if you tried.

When will the federal government respect the will of the states and the people regarding this issue regardless of laws allowing it or banning it?  All the bans recently overturned (this includes California, Indiana, Utah etc ). What I'm saying is if a state bans it don't interfere. If a state allows it don't interfere. 

Right, the only time the federal government should interfere is if a state legalizes gay marriage. Then, it's in the people's best interest to shut that thing down. Especially in California, now that polls show a large majority favors gay marriage.

No one's buying what you're selling, dude.

Oh goodness. He's keeping an apartment there for his parents to pay for so he can go to church sometimes on the weekends? This is the problem. He is constantly signing leases in other cities before he really establishes himself at a job and then refuses to sublease it so his parents won't have to continue to pay rent. He's just sooooooo incredibly selfish it's amazing!

One thing you need to realize is I'll be making $15 an hour, so most of it will be my money, not my parents'.  I know this is not what people would normally do, but I don't have to do what everybody else does in order to be right.  This is our decision, and there is nothing wrong with our decision.

My money. Our decision. Selfless!

You won't help fix dinner. You don't know how to cook. You can't use a knife to prep food. You aren't allowed near the stove. That's every stage of cooking right there. Don't lie.

"And I helped!"

If Jeff ever gets his act together, he needs to send Bushie père and Bushie mère on a couple's getaway to someplace exotic (perhaps Branson). Some alone time is the least he can give them.

Absolutely!  That's a great idea, and I'm sure Bushie would be more than happy to drive them there and back too.  And perhaps personally make sure they enjoy their romantic meal together.  Maybe he'll even pretend to offer to pay for it!

This is probably for the best, Bushie can't be trusted around the stove alone.

I don't think the idea of this "vacation" is all that strange. My family never went on any elaborate trips together, and a few of our getaways involved long-ish drives and short stays. If that's the Brown family's idea of a good time, let them have it.

The specifics ... mainly the fact that their 32-year-old son tagged along and stayed in the same room ... are odd, but not unheard of. I've traveled with my parents to events at different times over the last decade.

The same room stuff is certainly a bit strange

I shared a hotel room with my mother on a short trip this summer. It seems absolutely ridiculous to spend another $80 to $100 on a second hotel room per night when you can get one room with two beds. I mean, we are family.

Then again, this was just a trip to an antique festival, not a romantic getaway.

Since he's not going to the mountain because he has ebola, what else is there to do in Albuquerque?



I have no idea why Bushie doesn't become a drug dealer.  He won't even sip wine, forget touching his own stash.  And could you imagine the market in the outskirts of OKC!?  I know I'd be operating on a multitude of psychoactives.

Do you even read Update? Bushie would get arrested almost instantly.

Half of the remaining states are southern. I wonder if any of them will have it before a massive national ruling.

Absolutely.

Through small, regional rulings.  South Carolina will likely be fully onboard pretty soon, for example.

Define soon.  It's now looking doubtful the issue will be decided before December.

I've been waiting almost two decades for marriage equality. On that time scale, December is most definitely "soon." Especially considering the state we're talking about here.

There are total parallels, yes. But there really can't help but be. It's like the Amazing Race -- there are different teams all the time, but at the same time, there are only so many types of close relationships two people can have and still be athletic enough to handle what contains key elements of a sports competition.

By the way, who'd have thought Jon would wind up being the smart guy over on team blue? He had a decent enough plan -- take out Julie based on who had loved ones left. But the other guys (save for Reed) were too busy shooting their pistols in the air to come together and the female minority ruled. Drew was spectacularly idiotic.

22  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: The Ebola Thread (US Domestic) on: October 15, 2014, 11:13:06 pm
Of course we should institute a travel ban on majorly affected nations. Anybody who's even so much as played Pandemic knows this is the first step. I have yet to hear a serious argument as to why we shouldn't. We now have multiple Ebola cases in America explicitly because of our refusal to take this necessary step.

Containment is the first step to resolving this.

If travel is banned to affected nations, then no one will be able to go to the affected nations to assist in the effort against the disease. How can you contain the disease without actually going to the place the disease exists?

Unnecessary travel should, of course, be avoided.

This is a fairly closely divided district with many moderate and liberal communities in Bergen County. Garrett is far right. It's a district worth watching in any non-conventional election environment.

Gutting the CDC in response to the Ebola epidemic is one of the dumbest suggestions I've heard in some time. Congratulations, Naso. Who needs anyone making sure the sick don't go crossing state lines unnecessarily, am I right?
