The thing about the Miliband concern trolling is that it's so incredibly boring. You'd expect something like this to at least be interesting, but it's not.

It's worth noting that nobody ever uses "Silicon Valley" as a geographical designation. The Santa Clara Valley is without exception referred to as the South Bay.

Remember when Inks literally policed these threads? That was bizarre.

Stop doing these threads. They'll never be funny or interesting.

He's still WAY ahead of ISIS in numbers murdered, but I wouldn't let facts stand in the way of a good joke either.  Too bad this isn't a good joke.

The tendency for Saddam Hussein apologism on this forum is incredibly distasteful.

Honestly, Bushie's current job bears a lot of similarities to the job I have now. I've spent half an hour doing actual work since Monday.

It also shows what a pointless joke the UN has become.

Please stop talking and come back when you figure out what the United Nations actually does.
In my lifetime, the only thing I have seen the UN "do" is make itself a forum for third world crackpots and tyrants to blame the west for their problems.

Here, I'll help you out. Have you noticed that smallpox isn't a thing anymore? Who do you think is responsible for that?
Seriously?  Not the UN.

Who, then?

Was this hint deliberate?

Well done.

Moreover, it is literally wrong to claim that because Edward Jenner discovered the smallpox vaccine that the United Nations was not responsible for the eradication of the disease.

19  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: what separates the U.S. from Britain linguistically? on: July 24, 2014, 12:29:46 pm
False.  Mass media is not accelerating linguistic convergence.  Regional dialects may be getting somewhat less apparent in the UK, but that's largely a result of increased geographic mobility.  Meanwhile, dialects are becoming increasingly more distinct in the US, by and large, with the continued decrease in speakers of some East Coast dialects (e.g., Charleston) being more than balanced by large changes in the Rust Belt and California.
I was under the impression that TV (and to a lesser extent, films) desire to have most "normal" characters speak with a flat, midwestern accent was having a rather large impact on our "lesser" accents.  Hence why people in California and the Rust Belt now sound like they just got off the bus from Des Moines.

Accents in the western part of the country are just less distinct because those areas are more recently settled and have fewer natives.
20  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: NYC approves apartment building with separate entrance for poor people on: July 23, 2014, 11:39:52 pm
Really? My home is 2300 square feet and that feels enormous considering only four people live in it.
21  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: NYC approves apartment building with separate entrance for poor people on: July 23, 2014, 10:52:21 pm
I wish I had air conditioning. Just saying.

However, I think many Americans have just become accustomed to a giant home.  You don't need 800 sq ft of space per person.

800 sq ft = giant home?!

800 per person. For a family of four that means 3200.
