Uh... maybe it's the way they say them?

After all, even the funniest comedy routines turn into total snoozefests when transcribed.

I randomly ended up skimming Lewis Black's Wikiquote page about a day ago, and when you see his jokes in text his jokes seem super boring and lame. The performance makes all the difference.

Though some of these don't seem super great either way.

Pretty much any country has a "culture" insofar as they have a set of traditions, sport, art, civic society, language, history, media, etc, specific to them, just to varying levels of distinction, or in this case the sheer number of intermingling cultures that create something just a bit different. I just happen to really love Canada; I have for years and years.

Marokai really loves hockey.

And maple syrup.

So falls the last redoubt of Hagrid's Plains empire.

I wonder if he'll survive until his next turn, at this rate.

I liked them when I was a kid, but they're obviously not great. The most offensive thing about them is how wildly overpriced they are for the amount of food ("food") you're getting.

The only inequalities that should exist in society are those naturally resulting out of individuals' specific talents.

"I'm sorry to report that comedian Robin Williams has committed suicide, an event of great import and grief to his family. But his sacrifice has been a great boon to the the news cycle and the electoral machinery ó thank God that we have a tragedy involving a wealthy white man to drag us away from the depressing news about brown people."


"Boy, I hate to say it, but it sure was nice of Robin Williams to create such a spectacular distraction."

I don't like some people.

Yeah, to be fair, the original Gameboy did actually kind of suck.

This thread reminded me of an insane rant published on Time's website that basically accused gay males of "stealing black female culture." Included was some of the intellectually laziest, "this is mine, not yours, you can't have any of it" bitter complaining that seemed to have nearly nothing to do with the original point, but was instead just a retreading about how blacks are disadvantaged in society (obviously, true) and I am somehow perpetuating this everytime I've jokingly snapped my fingers at someone.

I am history's greatest monster.
44  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Pelosi chases Tom Marino (R-PA) across House floor on: August 04, 2014, 02:27:13 pm
The only reason Pelosi rose to power and remains in power is because she is female and a great fundraiser, she not only is a simple minded hack but she can be blamed for the continuing collapse of the House

As is often the case, the hatred of Pelosi seems to boil down to sexism. Pelosi is not only a great campaigner, but as a legislator, she's one of the best the House has seen in decades. She worked non-f**king-stop to get politically difficult, important legislation passed through the House while Speaker that repeatedly went off to die in the useless Senate. She's 100000x the legislative organizer that Boehner is.

Hate her political opinions all you want, but there's a reason she's still the Democratic leader. She can get s**t done.

This forum's hatred of Wilson is bizarre.

As is the love of Coolidge, who was largely a do-nothing and is considered mediocre by most historical rankings.

The Labour Party won 43,2% of the popular vote, and 418 of the parliamentary seats, as recently as 1997. I seriously doubt most of their voters then were old blue-collar factory workers or miners.

I know that in this day an age people think that winning elections is all about new imaginative campaign slogans and flashy websites... but no one really cares about that. People will vote for Labour if they agree with their policies, think they have a competent leadership, and hate the Tories. Calling them the Progressive Party, or the Blueberry Party, or We-Hate-The-Tory-Party Party, would make zero, zilch, nada difference. None what so ever! If any affect, it would be confusing a few pensioners who'd be wondering what happened to the party they were planning to vote for.

Sigh, there are few things that annoy me quite as much as changing things that that work just for the sake of change with-out reflection on wether the change is actually for the better. As if change in itself is suppose to have some sort self-worth. Roll Eyes
