A Hollywood mogul must not use his position to sexually exploit underage actors.

Really? I thought that was totally fine.

Yes (normal)

Oh, I was excited to see Lewis posting in this thread and then I noticed the date.

What's everyone's Sporcle account? Mine is NaveedIC.

I don't have an account, I just play the game and mark my score. Tongue

Oh, that's no fun.

17. I could name all the heads of government, of course (this is something I can do offhand), but not the figureheads.

Cathcon gets at the crux of the matter. Statistics, like other forms of mathematics, is general in nature.

You know, Bushie, a lot of these issues would just go away if you converted to a nice, Broad Church, latitudinarian denomination like, oh, say, Anglicanism.

He should join the United Methodist Church. It's basically whatever you want it to be, anything from theologically liberal Episcopalian-Lite (presumably Hillary Clinton's interpretation), to a more respectable version of Evangelical Protestantism (George W. Bush).

As someone who's going to a United Methodist divinity school next year, I could not fail to not disagree less.

That sentence is impossible to parse.

I'm 22. Wanting children would make an insane person.

This is the correct answer. Maybe it'll happen at some point, but it's certainly not something I have any interest in now.

If the Republican President allowed the Democratic Congress a free-hand on domestic policy in return for a free-hand on defense-related and foreign policy?

So basically the Eisenhower years? Sure.

Why did you reply to a post from nearly eight years ago?

Dinkins. The rest were all awful in their own ways, Giuliani obviously the worst.

It's a shame New York isn't gritty and realistic anymore.
12  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Were Rep. Steve Israel's comments about Republicans over the line? on: April 16, 2014, 03:20:31 pm
Yes (D), not every Republican is a racist, regardless of their Immigration positions, and while a section of the Republican base is comprised of Racists, they make up a small minority, I mean, the only places I can envision John Malcom Paterson types getting elected are Mississippi and Alabama, and even then, you aren't going to find mainstream Republicans screaming "NEGROS WILL DIE, WHITE POWER" from Capitol Hill.

You don't have to be an avowed white nationalist to be racist.

I'm sad Bushie views Greek Orthodox christianity as inferior to his salad bar Christian flavor. He'll learn soon how right I am.

The girl I've been hanging out with lately was telling me the other day that she's leaving Lutheranism for Orthodoxy because she thinks that American Protestantism is too mundane. I couldn't really disagree.
14  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: Do women have lower incomes (on average) because of discrimination? on: April 16, 2014, 03:01:58 pm
Is it really an idiomatic expression, though? I've never read it as ironic.
15  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Gubernatorial Election Polls / Re: ME-Pan Atlantic SMS Group: Gov. LePage (R) leading for the first time on: April 16, 2014, 12:06:05 pm

How so ?

Their results are not much different than PPP polls that were done at the same time they did their polls ...

1) They use decimals.
2) Now PPP is saying that Michaud leads by 8, a 6 points increase compared with the last time. So now, it's impossible Lepage is leading right now.

Using decimals does not make a poll wrong: That's like saying a car is worse just because it has a seat warming system, which another car has not.

And: Nothing is impossible. But I'd like to see other polls as well.

No, the issue with the inclusion of decimals is that it indicates that the pollster doesn't understand significant figures.

So this thread is another case of hyperbolic ag basically freaking out that the world is coming to an end. Loads of these lately.

Not at all. He's quite correct in this instance.

No, he hasn't provided any substantial evidence to prove that point. He has basically just reverted to the "this guy did some horrible things 10 years ago like your average Indian politician so he shouldn't be elected" viewpoint.

I was unaware that the average Indian politician instigated mass pogroms.

That sounds unpleasantly dry.

Rice+meat+vegetables is a fine dinner. Do you need some sort of broth?

I'm glad temperatures in my room won't be over 80° tonight. I was having a very hard time sleeping.

It's not clear to me why GroenLinks still exists as a party.

There was a time in my life when I could have gotten almost all of the Prime Ministers under the old monarchy.
