Major FD.  Especially black tea that's hot with milk and sugar.

I will never not be outraged when something fails with a majority voting for it. Our system is a f**king joke.

Truly the greatest tragedy of this election is that Léo Bureau-Blouin has lost re-election in Laval-des-Rapides. He was too gorgeous for Quebec to handle.

I think he is a good person who has been a disappointing President in a lot of ways, particularly in the last few years. I do genuinely believe he tries to do good with what he has to work with, and despite the fact that there is a lot I wish he would've done and said differently, I cannot blame him alone for how hopelessly f**ked the American political system is. On balance I think he's an FF.

The best President America has had in a long time.

This is at least, whether I think it's kind of a bummer or not, true.

So, Pauline Marois is just a crap premier, or the crappiest premier?

Crap premier, crappiest campaigner.

Are there any reliable stats for how younger people voted in 2012?

Still one of my favorite posters after all these years.

I would never scheme. Tongue

Congrats Hagrid! Multiple points where I definitely thought Vosem had it.

I've felt like you deserved to be a Senator ages ago, Alfred. I'm happy to see that you seem to have finally made it there.

It's because Pokemon fans are grown up now.

Particularly the ones that get super pretentious about the original 151 and would be willing to go to some sort of art exhibit showing them. I don't see how this is all that surprising to be honest.

He's a poster that I've generally viewed as a great contributor to the forum and a very smart dude, but I agree with Antonio and traininthedistance in that I don't really see a lot of positive contribution to the forum at large lately and that's a bummer, because there's a lot of older Oakvale posts that I hold in high regard and I miss his "effortposting" and some of his older sincerity.

I've seen a lot of people get swept away by this place in pretty harsh ways. I don't want to call it getting "corrupted" by the forum or something silly like that, but it's definitely possible to get a little too close to the flame. Some people have been driven to no-joke nervous breakdowns and even when Duke jokingly says that Atlasia "drove him to drinking too much" I know there's a little tiny kernel of truth to it that's kind of depressing.

Atlas is just a forum. It can be a good and insightful forum where a lot of fascinating and no-nonsense discussion takes place, and it can breed a very close community that has formed all kinds of bonds in a way most discussion sites never do, and it's valuable for all those things, but it's just a forum. If it really grates on you that much, take time away from it and its (at times incredibly taxing) culture. Try not to become the thing that you rightfully hate.

1892 is my favorite Presidential election. I've been long-fascinated by them.

Vosem's soldiers apparently started drinking Felix Felicis
17  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Jimmy Carter on: March 23, 2014, 01:09:17 pm
IMO he had more courage, maturity, and foresight as President than any of his successors.

Sure, why not.
19  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Opinion of Jon Stewart on: March 21, 2014, 01:16:52 pm
All of the complaints about him just seem vague and petty. I can't think of any reason to actively dislike him.
20  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Have True Leftists accomplished anything in recent history besides mass murder? on: March 21, 2014, 09:10:52 am
When did "True Leftist" become a thing?

People don't actually like productively arguing about things on the Atlas Forum anymore. Instead, we come up with pithy (increasingly meaningless) terms to dismiss something we disagree with instead of argue why it's invalid, or we post it in any given Mine/Institute/Gallery so we can get away with mocking someone without fear of retaliation.

Mostly it just makes me cringe.

Considering that the PQ's reputation for being maybe just a little bit racist has clearly damaged it electorally over the years (even if it hasn't cost votes directly, it sure helps to drive up minority turnout for the PLQ), it's weird that they don't seem to have done anything to address it. Of course that's partly because... you know... but you'd think they would at least have learned to be a bit more... presentable.

It is amazing to me how little they seem to care about broadening their appeal. Pretty much the only reason I keep thinking the PLQ will end up winning this is because the PQ seems so insistent on pissing different people off at random. It's like they're determined to find a way to lose.

If people are keeping me alive, it's for a reason I'm not aware of, Ernest. No one cares to "work with me" at this point. Tongue

Hey, I don't blame you. If it wasn't you, it'd be BK. Tongue
25  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Hypothetical Obama impeachment vote (2014) on: March 10, 2014, 11:40:38 pm
I would vote aye if the case was made well or some new evidence came to light that Obama did something, or authorized something, that was illegal. I would vote nay if it was over something stupid and the case was made horribly/hysterically.
