Oakvale doesn't criticize my lifestyle. Oakvale/Grumps. Map later?

Ugh.  Dude, I've been down Fraternity Road (albeit 1977-1979), and I see some things I did that were really f[inks]ing stupid creeping into your updates.  I've tried in various forms to point the bad sh**t out, as sort of a friendly warning, but it's getting me nowhere.  So now I will be a neutral observer.  Party on, my brother.

I've taken steps to correct certain things (Christ, I feel like Bushie), and you seem to have ended up alright. Were you only in two years?

Thing is, we have a couple of cartographers here who are from and thus specifically dedicated to New England, and we don't have the same pool for the South. We do have a solid group there, but they may or may not be producing the same type of maps. I recommend messaging AdamGriffin, BaconKing, or MilesC56. Those are the three that I suspect or know to be Dixie's map makers.

Also this has been over for about a day.

Can we get a general election, Dallas?

Dallas is a busy man, and he's demonstrated in the past that he doesn't produce these like rapidly, so just chill.

I hope that the negative tone the vast amount of my posts on the forum have had lately indicate I'm mainly here when I'm sleep deprived and pissed off because of my schedule. Take that as you wish. Thank God the semester's ending soon, though.

Huh. I thought that was just you being wacky. Sorry.

Nothing to apologize for, it's just that the time when I'm not either socializing, working, or doing academic related things, I'm just wasting time celebrating the fact that I'm not doing anything. Between all those things, I have no time to be productive in my free time.

Social justice is now a movement? I thought it was just a "thing". However, if you actually think what "civil rights" means and how it's come to refer to one specific movement, it makes more sense.

When I got back to my room last night/this morning, I put a bottle of whisky in my freezer. I'd put stuff in there before, but I guess I hadn't accounted for the fact that Jim Beam fifths are rectangular in body while Royal Canadian is round. In any case, roll, roll, roll, crash, and that was the end of that. I suck.

When I was a freshman, I more or less had a tantrum when one of my roommates attempted to keep alcohol in the freezer (Vodka) and beer in the fridge. I basically told him he could keep them anywhere but the fridge/freezer. So he kept the vodka in his room at room temp and simply did his beer drinking elsewhere. He didn't like me very much.

I don't have a room mate this semester since he transferred to MSU, but he was the first one of us that was storing beer in the fridge. Second his mom left from when he moved in, he opened his hockey bag and was like "time for the stash". I wonder which of us has stored more stuff... Could still be him given that most of my stuff gets drunk or disappears at the House. I've cleaned it up now and thanks to Febreeze, my towel doesn't completely reek of whiskey.

Wow in 6 weeks you can hear the heartbeat? Yeah courts were wrong for this.

In the hypothetical, it's not the job of the judge to determine what's life and what's not, but to appraise a case on its constitutionality. If somehow there's a loophole in a law allowing mass murder, than that's what the law says and it's a commentary rather on how we should legislatively (or in this case through an amendment) change what's already written.

You are certainly free to use your funds to endow the creation of a university in which statistics will be a stand-alone department with its own faculty and its own pedagogy.  Accrediting agencies can be somewhat conservative, though.

This isn't the South. We don't wave Confederate flags or separate the Statistics department from Math in general.

Combination of hangover and (more so) utter lack of knowledge of France. Only one I can name is Chirac. Does that make me a bad person?

'Cause you do math, duh. Taking Statistics 1000(?) right now and it's  math, which I suck at.

you do math in economics also.

is economics also a branch of mathematics?

Economics is the measure and study of something specific. To my limited knowledge, statistics, like basic addition and other forms of math, can be applied to all sorts of subjects.

Entitled bullsh#t. When, in God's name, did he say this? It's disgusting. I'm no theologian, but if being a rich, authoritarian asshole is all it takes, then... I dont' wanna say anything blasphemous, so I'll just go with the common youthful phrase of "F#ck it!"
22  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: I may run for Newberry City Commission on: April 17, 2014, 01:27:37 am
I myself am considering filling out an application to be on one of my Township boards despite having almost zero qualifications and the fact that I'll spend most of my time in Detroit over the summer.

Do you seriously just have to apply? Who decides whether to accept your application? The mayor?

First off, our highest executive is a Township Supervisor. Second off, I should probably re-read the stuff to see who signs off on it. It may be merely an informal job app, but it ain't elected, apparently, so it's probably one of the "big guys" approving the apps. I'd be willing to show up for any meeting I can, not sure if I'll actually fill out the app or what. Still gotta finalize stuff with my employer.

Am launching an impromptu campaign for any position on my school's Student Government Association. There are three offices open and the only official candidate is running only for President, so I'm hoping my ~3 write-in votes so far can get me places. I'm utilizing social media just like Obama taught me and am hoping it pays off.
Can I be your Chuck Colson?

Too lazy to look up what specific part in Watergate he played, but yes. In fact, it's encouraged.

Just ran into a kid that was involved with SGA recently, he warned me not to do it since it's a complete f#ckup over there. I'm sure I'll hate it assuming I do win, but it's A) one more thing for the resum'e, B) a chance to fix something C) a chance to spread Sigma Pi's influence throughout the halls of UDM, D) another way to troll this awful school, and E) it'll function as a way to segue into running both Sigma Pi and UDM from my room in the House next semester.
