Spamage's votes denied though his vote was cast 10 minutes before the deadline.  This does alter the election results.

No, no it was not. Voting booth opened at 08:04:47 pm, closed 72 hours later. Spamage casts his vote at 08:49:11 pm. He's past the deadline. Nothing ambiguous about it. I obviously have no desire (I like higher turnout) to disallow his vote but it's completely clear cut. JCL's math does not add up.

Yeah... on the one hand, I know I'm getting milked by all these franchise films (I mean, all  they have to do is slap a title on it, and I run down and hand them 10 bucks), but I don't care. They're fun to watch, so screw it. Watching the Avengers now, as a matter of fact; that's why I thought of the reference.

That Loki guy sure is hard to get along with...

Whereas Scarlett Johansen, on the other hand, seems quite easy to spend some time with.

  The ‘Pimco Bond People’ interviewed on CNBC, I think it was Friday, maybe Thursday, says, the game of chicken is the game. , The SELL, the cash out is here and greed has its finger on the button.

 Yes, I translated the pimco interview; understand pimco is a vender of the fed. 

 Understand also, that if it were not for the annuity inflow's of retirement payments to the market, the first in - first out for a fee market, the market would be at the pre-consumer banking model before the conversion to the investment banking present model. That would put the true hard currency reality price of the market in the 7000-9000 DOW range.

Okay, that's enough now.

So the cartoon is even more inaccurate. Huh. Well guess we have to shut off the electricity too.

Also Averroes started the write-ins for Superique, not me.

Well, I come to inform you that you seems to have won, by virtue of your vote and your vote alone, all but one other voter having chosen to exhaust their ballot. So congratulations on being elected, if one can call it that.

3037  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Voting Booth / Re: Pacific Voting Booth: April 2015 Gubernatorial and Legislative Council Elections on: April 12, 2015, 07:50:09 pm
PROVISIONAL RESULTS

With 11 first preferences for Simfan34 and one abstention, Simfan34 is elected as governor.


With 7 first preferences for Gully Foyle, 2 for Turkisblau, 1 for jojoju98, 1 for Superique, and 1 for Paleobrazilian, Gully Foyle is elected to the Legislative Council.

After redistribution, with 7 preferences for Turkisblau, 2 for Superique, 1 for jojoju98, 1 for Paleobrazilian, and 1 exhausted, Turkisblau is elected to the Legislative Council.

After redistribution, with 8 preferences for Superique, 1 for jojuju98, 1 for Paleobrazilian, and two exhausted, Superique is not elected due to having not implicitly or explicitly accepted his candidacy. Therefore, after redistribution, with 2 preferences for jojoju98 and 10 exhausted, jojoju98 is elected to the Legislative Council.

And? There is no scandal here, a clerical error at worst. Do you want to enable Labor's tactics, Turkisblau? Are you trying to accuse me of making socks? If you wanted me out of office you should have had the courtesy of challenging me upfront rather than tracing a dagger on my back. You would have been far wiser for having done so before I (literally) won re-election with 100% of the vote.

Either you can be honest about your intentions or stop enabling this nonsense and stand with your party.
3039  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Atlasian Laborinth - CORRUPTION IN THE PACIFIC on: April 12, 2015, 07:20:05 pm
I was wondering why Paleobrazilian was on the ballot and it's odd that Simfan would vote for him when he never campaigned and kind of got ejected for inactivity from the Council back in January.

To deepen the plot, when Paleo came back to Atlas ~March 21st he posted longwinded Simfan-ish posts to the Brazil thread which Simfan repeatedly complimented as great.

...? I didn't vote for him. I gave him a fourth preference.

This attempted wedge strategy is extraordinarily transparent.

My, erm, apologies Nix. Not sure if apologies is the right word here, but when you mention something like "involuntary quasi-celibacy" things sound quite bleak. If the area is as bad as you make it sound I suppose there's little disadvantage, since you won't be missing out on much. Perhaps you can live in the log cabin?

Contrarianism this is not. It's quite consistent with everything else I say.
3043  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: CA: Gov. Brown orders mandatory water restrictions (25% reduction statewide) on: April 12, 2015, 06:28:30 pm
And it's not like they need the water anyway, because who needs food? Or are we- gasp- supposed to care about farmers, the rural bumpkins? Apparently not, because it's the fault of "Big Ag" and not little Ag, since everyone knows Big Ag is just so much more wasteful and expensive than the good organic fair trade local artisanal growers.

Oh and fracking wasting so much water, 70 million gallons of it! It's not like there are solar plants that consume several times more water than the entire fracking industry.

In no way do the facts at hand contradict some people's forced-vegetarian, pro-depopulation, high-cost energy biases! Because that would be absurd.

Great political cartoon about the situation.

Except totally inaccurate and small minded.
3045  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: Citizens have the right to be heard on the Senate floor (Sign the Pledge)! on: April 12, 2015, 06:00:10 pm
This campaign is the height of opportunistic hypocrisy.
3046  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Well, your opinion of Hillary's video? on: April 12, 2015, 02:20:01 pm
The main message was that she thinks that the system is "stacked in favor of those at the top" which is the main area in which work is yet to be done. Interesting. Does this mean inequality will be a campaign focus? If so, it's tacking to the left a bit, I think.

CONGRATS, ICESPEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously though, is this the first video of its kind to depict same-sex couples?

Well I don't think there were many videos of this kind before. But now I assume it's part of the obligatory diversity.
3048  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: The Sam Spade Memorial Good Post Gallery on: April 12, 2015, 02:08:02 pm
Let us pause for a moment and consider the lie of the land. Polls conducted after the (ridiculous) debate collectively show the Conservatives on between 30% and 36% and Labour on between 33% and 37%. The Liberal Democrats are polling between 7% and 12%, UKIP between 11% and 19%, and the Greens between 3% and 7%.1 Most of the more extreme figures are from the less well regarded polling companies. There is a tendency in the media to look at this and say (as they have done for months) that the polls point towards another hung parliament. They do not. Due to the electoral system the relationship between votes polled and seats won in Britain is not absolute and is not something that can be securely calculated. Parties have won majorities with very slender leads in the past.2 Mostly what the polls point to is a competitive election with an uncertain outcome. They also suggest that a large majority for any party is extremely unlikely. Any inference beyond that point is an example of using data to back up predictions already made, rather than using data to make predictions. Beware.

1. The Greens are running about sixty seats short of a full GB slate, which will knock their final vote tally down a tad.
2. And very occasionally have actually won majorities despite trailing: the last time this happened was in 1951.

I will say that, demographically speaking, your board seems considerably more diverse than here. There are a lot of people whose viewpoints are sorely lacking on here- namely people who are not upper middle class white men who are teenaged or in their 20s. So despite the flaws you might be facing, it must be said that you have one extremely significant asset that we lack.

And you seem to be taking a remarkably proactive approach towards rectifying your problems, whereas we here, while sort of half-seriously being aware that we have a "problem", don't seem to really be trying to do anything about it. So kudos to you, and I hope if we have piqued your interest you'd consider sticking around for a bit. Some membership exchange (not like what happened before, of course) might be a good thing for both sites, actually. A breath of fresh air. Smiley

But the flippant attitude some people here seem to have is pretty disappointing.
