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.

http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=200062.msg4337488#msg4337488

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.

12  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?

ORANGE TRIBE

Well, after last night, it appears that ol' Josh is in the drivers seat. He saw a shot and he took it. I think it was a smart move -- Rocker had the idol, and he proved a couple times that he didn't have the best interests of his tribe in mind. Plus he was a really bad sport, and that's a huge negative in a Blood vs. Water season.

Wes did pretty well for himself too. He won the reward challenge, which was huge. And he seems to be really well bonded with Josh. He was close to the bottom of the guys' alliance, and now he's closer to top without being at the top. It's a good place to be.

Baylor's a big winner too. She went from the bottom to darn close to the top of the new everyone-but-Dale alliance. The only catch here: Though Josh considers Baylor a top confidant, Baylor doesn't trust Josh at all. And she shouldn't trust Josh. You don't put votes on someone like that without telling them first. She'll slit his throat one day, and he'll never see it coming.

Jaclyn almost blew it at tribal council hinting at the ploy to off Rocker. Rocker was dumb enough to think she was talking about the guys voting out Dale, I guess. What a "big move" getting rid of the 50-year-old.

Speaking of: Dale is still 50. No one needs his glasses to make fire. Dude is in trouble.

Alec is not a real player in this game. Stupid though he seems, though, I think he's actually the smart twin. For whatever that's worth.

BLUE TRIBE

It's a lot harder to get a read on the other tribe, since they've never been to tribal. Still, here goes.

Julie is in a bad position, but slightly less bad now that Rocker's been voted off. She'd have gone home guaranteed had Team Blue went to tribal. But now, the need for revenge is lessened.

No one seems to like Drew, because he's dumb, lazy and not very engaging socially. My guess is that he's the first to go. Which is too bad, I really like the "bumbling idiot" edit he's getting.

Jon lost the flint, but that's old news by now -- no one will vote him out for that 7 days after the fact. He's not in any kind of power position with the tribe, but he does seem very useful in challenges.

I'm starting to like Natalie. She's got a huge mouth that will eventually be her undoing -- or get her to the final three as a goat. Having her sister voted out probably helped her game.

Smart play by Keith in getting Josh to agree to share the clue before the reveal. I hope he finds the immunity idol. He's clearly not fond of Josh as Josh was of him, though. (This seems to be Josh's blindside: He's pretty good at reading peoples' interactions with each other, but pretty terrible at handling and analyzing interactions directly.)

Jeremy's in a good position for now. He's taking the alpha male leadership role, which is dangerous. But so long as his team keeps winning, he should be fine. Not sure why he can't find the idol, though.

Ebola has become a serious political issue, you know. Republicans are trying to shut the border down over this.

As is, you're an unemployed, morbidly obese 32-year-old man with the "smart cookiness" of a kindergartner and repeated failures in relationships, in employment, in decision-making and in life. Other than blatant, sinful, shallow and blind pride, what makes you think doing the opposite of what we tell you is the right thing to do?

22  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 House Election Polls / MA-09: Emerson/WGBH: Rep. Bill Keating (D) trails by 5 on: October 08, 2014, 01:01:10 pm
Quote
In the 9th Congressional District, 44 percent say they would likely vote for John Chapman with 39 percent voting for Bill Keating, but when asked who they think will win, Keating, the democratic incumbent, handily won with 47 percent to Chapman's 22 percent. The 9th District poll among 343 likely voters has a 5.25 percent margin of error.

Massachusetts's 9th Congressional District includes part of the South Shore and all of Cape Cod. The district is "only" D+5, making it the second most Republican in the state.

Keating has served since 2011. Chapman is a former Romney aide.

It's pretty big news because it was a group of, like, fifteen straight people. A collection of ladies and dudes were out for a fun night together, beat the crap outta some gay dudes just because they didn't like "fags," and then went back to enjoying their fun evening.
