The Boys and Girls Guide to Getting Down

Pretty funny actually.  It's pretty accurate too.

le sigh

I find it funny that you call global warming "deniers" zealots when in reality, the most annoying group of zealots going are the global warming pimps and the idiot class they've brainwashed.

Flight of the Living-meh.  It's zombies...ON A PLANE!

Street Fight-Documentary about the Newark mayoral election of 2002.  Suprisingly sad that this kind of political tactics is still allowed in this country.  Sharpe James and a lot of cops should be in jail.  (wiki)  Ahhh, it seems he's heading that way or is already there.  Good.

I'm watching Right at your Door right now.  Good stuff so far.

It would be funny if WWIII started between the West (and our eastern friends) and China (and her friends) over a jerk in Sub-Sahara Africa.

Not "ha-ha" funny.

Moral of course.

Knocked Up was funny as hell.  Anybody that gets their panties in a twist over that isn't somebody worth listening to.

Some of your left leaning friends aren't going to like that.

The CIA is external and into intel gathering.  The FBI is internal and into investigative work.

These are mostly farmers and children of farmers that I've known and they tend to not be dicks about much of anything.  Sometimes there is a Ford/Chevy/Dodge thing though Smiley

No, like everything you could possibly think of.  For example, if we play a board game, it's as if it's a race to find out which color (or whatever) is going to be argued over.  Very snarky to each other in general.  It's mainly the middle girl who instigates it, but the other two are rarely innocent.  I have this theory that middle children are normally the brats/bossy ones.  Both family units I've been personally attached to have had the middle child fit this mold and I've seen it in a lot of other families.

1.people that are happy being ignorant and knowing it...and don't care.  About something specific or in general
2.when people or organizations I had thought highly get caught doing something that is morally bankrupt
3.when people go out of the way to defend their own people or organizations when they do things that are morally bankrupt
4.when i don't compete well at sport or game (that I normally compete well at)
5.my kids arguing about pointless crap constantly
17114  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Least Polarized States on: April 18, 2008, 11:09:05 pm
Yeah, I've been in nearly every part of the state at one time or another and while they are politically aware (or at least more so than average), they ain't dicks about it (at least less so than average).
17115  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Name 5 things that make you smile :) on: April 18, 2008, 10:55:08 pm
1.watching my kids succeed at something for the first time after failing but sticking with it.
2.old people or little kids falling down...or normal people...hell, anybody falling down is funny
3.various natural beauties one sees from day to day like sunrises and waterfalls
4.competing well against the enemy at game or sport...winning is just icing on the cake
5.other people smiling
17116  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Who are the "weirdest" forum members? on: April 18, 2008, 10:43:44 pm
I've discovered after many years of research that once you scratch the surface everybody is weird.  Raising children has added the truth that we turn weird at a really young age too.  Sure it shows a little more on some than others, but underneath, we're all weird.

Iowa, I'd say.
That was my first thought.
17118  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Name one thing you liked about the last recent Presidents on: April 18, 2008, 04:26:47 pm
Nixon-he supported Israel in the Yom Kipper war when he really didn't have to (nobody else was except the Dutch)
Ford-i have no idea...not much
Carter-deregulated the airlines
Reagan-he told the air traffic controllers to go suck eggs
Bush-looking back..not much.
Clinton-hmmm, he did lead to a lot of good jokes on late night comedy shows
Bush-ditto
17119  General Discussion / History / Re: Was the expulsion of Germans from east of the Oder-Neisse justified? on: April 18, 2008, 03:52:11 pm
And everybody got the shaft.


edit-except for the Communist leaders of course.  They lived like Kings.

And they continue to. In 1995, Poland kicked out Wałęsa and put in one of them.
If Communists acted like he did as President they'd still be around....and wouldn't be called Communists.

Stopping an institutional behaviour that is seriously damaging to the girls is most certainly a state's responsibility, but given the colour of your avatar you probably disagree.

You're right.  I do disagree.
First: There is a major difference between a drug that is addictive no matter who uses it and a substance that the vast majority will not become addicted to.
Agreed.  I'm not sure what that has to do with the discussion as Alcohol is less addictive than cigs (cig addiction isn't a "disease") and more addictive than pot (pot addiction isn't a "disease").

Second: Your irrational hate for the state and its institutions are quite sad and probably the reason why Libertarians never will experience a electoral breakthrough (you personally is of cause not responsible for that)
irrational hate?  Nah.  The state is needed I just think it's a lot bigger than it should be.  You might not agree with it, but it's a rational position to take.

And parents who try to homeschool their kids should not only be jailed, they should have their kids taken away from them.

How exactly are we supposed to celebrate?
Part some water, eat some bug poop you pick up off the ground....ummmm talk to a bush? errrr...wander around a desert.  Then drink some Jewish wine.
17124  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: If California and Texas went to war, which state would win on: April 18, 2008, 08:16:29 am
That's exactly what I was thinking.  I was disappointed my BMT was so non-military like.  Folding Tshirts was hardest part.
17125  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: If California and Texas went to war, which state would win on: April 18, 2008, 07:23:50 am
We were House of Pain....I'd have to dig out my graduation book to remember what the numbers were...it wasn't 322 though.  It was 333 or 323 I think.  My Tech School Squadron number was REALLY close to my BMT Squadron number.  When I got there we were 3rd building from the gate, but we moved to the 2nd one from the gate on the last week of training.

(using google and searching for "usaf basic training 'house of pain'" it tells me I was in the 323.  333 must have been my Tech School Sqd)

edit-useless info.  I was in the last group of Flights to do PT in uniform and in formation.  The group after us got sweats and were allowed to run "loose".  I hear BMT in the USAF is a lot more "military" like now than it was I went through.
