Oh, come on, Kathleen Brown's campaign's commercials went off-the-air for the last two weeks of the campaign. Instead, it spent millions to print a 62-page booklet full of policy positions sent to voters. There is nothing about her as a candidate that was "right." And come on, Coakley in Massachusetts in 2010?

You're just trolling us all, right?

Tom Kean Jr. was a terrible candidate. He had the right name and the right family connection, but that's literally all his campaign had.

93% learn is as high as I've ever seen. I assume he means Ragu from a jar?

Yes, almost certainly. He is using Ragu, which means he is dumping a ton of high fructose corn syrup on top of his easily digestible carbs. Because, you know, AMERICA.

I doubt you'd like it, Bushie, but I use the sugar-free version of Ragu they sell. It's actually a much more robust sauce when it's not laden with a ton of added sugar.



Oh my goodness, Mr Moderate.  Did you really have to condemn my food choice for tomorrow night?  At least it's not a large burger and large fries.  I see nothing wrong with spaghetti.

I dunno what you want, dude. You're trying to eat healthy and you made a choice that isn't. Would you rather eat terrible things unaware that they're terrible for you and counter to your goals? It's not a large burger, no -- a large burger would probably be healthier if made correctly.

I know you see nothing wrong with spaghetti. It's why you're nearly 300 pounds.

Okay, I'll say it: Spaghetti, laden with quickly digested carbs, and in the quantity you no doubt eat as part of a meal, is a particularly unhealthy choice. Your body (especially your body)will readily convert it into body fat.

10  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Opinion of people who purchase vinyl records nowadays on: September 15, 2014, 05:28:16 pm
The useful life of a vinyl record is far, far longer than the useful life of a cassette tape (miserably poor) or CD (some of the first CDs are already unlistenable due to age). Digital, meanwhile, is strangely ephemeral -- something you "own" without ever actually owning; something you can easily lose with the rise and fall of online media stores.

Vinyl is not a novelty, it's the archival method of music storage.

Military spending has been cut by 50% since the late 1960s.



Has any Atlasian actually looked at a federal budget?

Given how consistently wrong you are when it comes to very basic facts, the better question is probably this: Have you ever looked at a federal budget?

As an old I also refer to coffee as leaded or unleaded in homage to the two pumps.

Me too Smiley  Gas was far less than $1 when I was a pup but I can't recall the exact price.

The last time I paid less than $1 per gallon was 2001. Prices dropped sharply after 9/11 and were pretty reasonable (comparatively) until Katrina hit.

Phew. Thank you for the info.

To be fair, fracking has made avoiding the water of many oil-rich states a good idea.

Having to see the woman who was raped constantly remind you that she was raped is pretty uncomfortable. Still, it has to be more comfortable than being raped and not having authorities care enough to do anything about it.

22  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: UNICEF; 1 in 10 women sexually assaulted by age 20 on: September 07, 2014, 01:18:07 pm
I've seen some incredibly disturbing unwanted sexual content online directed at women that I know in real life. One of my friends was terrorized to the point where she needed to delete all her online accounts and change her phone number after graphic rape threats. Rape threats, I will point out, that the police had no interest in investigating, even after we located the "man" responsible for sending them.

Stalkers are scary as hell, incredibly graphic, abusive as f***, and far bolder online than in real life because of the veil of anonymity.

Not all cyberbullying is sexual assault, but it can be.

You abdicated any right to tell anyone on this forum to "shut up and let you live your life" several "seasons" ago. If you don't want to be judged, don't post judgeworthy actions on here.

This means the Supreme Court will soon take up the case.

Why?

Because there are conflicting rulings on the same issue from federal courts.
