I do have a couple of Varsity fountain pens, but I've noticed they have a tendency to bleed through paper easily, so I mainly use them for signatures and for writing cards for people.

You get to write cards to people? Lucky dog...

Sorry TNF:

Murder would probably vanish as a phenomenon after a few decades due to the common ownership of property and free distribution of goods and services, same goes for the bulk of all crimes that we now have under capitalism.

He can't be serious.

Why not?

Because... it's mind-bogglingly ludicrous, to the point that I'm actually willing to contradict myself and say that he can't not be serious, because there simply is no way a rational person could even conceive of such a thing, neither in seriousness or in jest, such an immaculate absurdity it is.

I honestly don't know what to make of it.

Now, I'm not much of a democrat and certainly no republican...

J-Mann, I am beginning to question your judgement here.

How hard does a person have to break to satisfy you? Profuse apologies in public? An eating disorder? Suicide?

All I'm saying is that his admission of how serious his problems are is a first step toward reality, and if someone's problems weigh on them to the point of emotional breakdown, stepping away to get a clearer head can help.

Jeff's financial and social situations are so dire that, as of this morning, he couldn't even do that. Since that time, he's won a trip to Albuquerque, which he'll probably enjoy much more than a spa trip, anyway.

He has not admitted anything. He instead acts as if he knows everything and we are the dumb people here, that he, a complete and utter failure, is a "smart cookie". He goes back and forth at times, but it's not anything real. He's as self-secure about being his slobbish, lazy, vain, deceitful, dishonest self. I mean look at these recent selections. This isn't a man "breaking", sure he's putting on a little show but after his bible study, a football game or six, a "brief relaxation" with the help of a parentally-paid adult television subscription (he says he's canceled it?... whatever. ), he'll be back telling us as to how WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT HE IS GOING THROUGH and that HE BELIEVES IN HIMSELF AND THAT IS ENOUGH and WE SHOULD NEVER QUESTION HIS FAITH! NEVER! I mean just look at it:

I would love a bank teller position.  I have thought about that several times, but get discouraged by the cash-handling experience and the very low pay.

And he deserves a higher pay because....?

I'm usually pretty careful about weeding out the scams on those sites.

HA! NO YOU'RE NOT!

In my job searches, I will definitely be looking for places you suggest.  Now, don't be surprised or upset if I take a customer service job in the mean time just to get some money coming in, but be assured I will keep seeking a better job that will better suit my skill set.

You have no skill set, nor will a customer service job get you any money because you're going to be fired in a month! Why do I say this? Because it's literally happened a dozen times or so!

Here is why I rarely listen to the forum.  Most of the forum thinks I can't do anything, or can't do anything significant.  Friends don't think their friends can't do anything.  That's where most of the forum utterly fail.  They never give me a chance and try to discourage me from EVERY friggin job I come across.  Shut up, will ya.

We think that because as far as we know it is true- you cannot do anything! You either can't, or some part of you makes you decide that you shouldn't be doing it- i.e. Oklahoma NG, that job a few months ago where they were paying you to sit around. It certainly hasn't been proven false!

King, I don't have to convince myself.  I'm a pretty smart cookie and I'm positive I can do this.  If I fail, I fail, but if I succeed that's all the better.

No, you are not by any standard a "smart cookie", or a smart anything. You cannot do this.

500 hours I won't gain, I will agree.  It doesn't mean I can't pass the tests.

You do not have 500 hours of experience and therefore cannot do it, not to mention you're you on top of that. You haven't a clue what this is. You can't do it. I'm sorry-no, I'm not ever sorry when you are concerned- but your "genius" will not allow you to skip four months worth of experience unlike us mere mortals who can't.... arrrgh!

He needs to be hit with sticks, and you can take that as literally or as metaphorically as you so choose, but he should have forfeit any reasonable person's sympathy or desire to help him do anything, long, long before now. I doubt I'd want to employ him even if he paid me. The level of arrogance, of disdain for those "minimum wage workers" he is so much better than because Huh, the constant telling us off...

The man is... argh, I give up, I made this damn post over two years ago, and I'm not doing it again! Nothing has changed. I have to stop because I'm going to take it out on my computer otherwise and attempt to throttle it to death.

AHAHAHA!

87  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Possible coup in North Korea on: October 08, 2014, 10:01:28 pm
I mean, unless he was dying he could be carted out? I'm inclined to think even the North Korean people would be jarred by his absence.

If FDR managed to conceal his being wheelchair bound to the general public in a democracy certainly Kim Jong-Un could manage it.

He wouldn't have to be seen going out giving "on-the-spot guidance" but going to (another) concert of the Moranbong Band or visiting a youth centre shouldn't be impossible to manage. Heck, he could review a parade whilst sitting down, if need be. Which brings us to whether we'll see him on Friday at the WPK anniversary parade.

Something does seem strange here.
88  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The Office of Simfan34 - I TOO HAVE THINGS TO SAY! on: October 08, 2014, 09:51:11 pm
I hereby appoint Averroës Nix to fill the vacant regional Senate seat.

I believe I have already said all that needs to be said on this issue:

But then we have Senator Nix. The saintly Senator Nix. How can I begin to express my gratitude? Brothers, how can we! We are truly blessed to have this sprightly living legend of the Atlasian Senate represent us in Congress. Senator Nix has stood by us- stood by me- since time immemorial, to defend our interest and that of The People as a whole. When I left the Senate, he took my bills and fought for them as if they were his own. He went and helped me write them and get them passed. He even helped me in my own personal affairs, helping me to take actions I would have been too timid to do otherwise, and I am better off for it.

We are all, to the last, every Atlasian man, woman, and child, better off by having Senator Nix here. Some politicians are accused of conspiring against those who do not vote for them. I do not know if these are true, but I can assure you that no person who votes against Senator Nix’s re-election shall ever get my vote.

We must renew our faith in government, and government must renew its faith in The People. The upcoming elections shall provide a great turnover in our elected officials, and I think now is the time to grasp the link, to hold fast upon the rope, to not let it slack, and to let us be carried forwards by the wind. Let us recall the motto of the great luminary Kwame Nkrumah: “Forwards ever, backwards never!”

That makes no sense. I don't support a monarchy in this country. Who else would i vote for? I mean what you just said... makes no sense.

Anyway I was anti-American Revolution back in kindergarten, well before I considered myself a Republican.
90  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Regional Governments / Re: PA: The Second amendment act. on: October 08, 2014, 12:34:08 pm
Standard debate time has now ended.

I would like to see an amendment made that turns the provisions of this legislation into statute as opposed to a constitutional amendment, for the reasons indicated by members of the Legislative Council and our honourable Senator.

In this vein, I move to extend debate until otherwise motioned. If no objections to this motion are made within 12 hours, it will be considered carried.

It seems that this is the case. I believe also that I'm failing with my responsibilities. I'm considering to resign and leave this office for someone better than me :/

Please don't delay if you think this best.

95  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Wealthy Americans giving less to charity, non-wealthy giving more on: October 08, 2014, 11:22:37 am
To be fair, I think that brings up an important point about charity.  The reason Utahans give so much to charity is that Mormons give 10% of their income to the Mormon church.  I think religious charities may account for a good percentage of Republican charitable giving. 

This is the card in the deck that tilts the "charitable giving" statistic in favor of Republicans. It's dishonest once you think about it.

All right, let's just accept this unsubstantiated claim as fact. Thank God we don't have to consider the possibility that Republicans aren't inferior to us progressives in every way!

He is an incompetent slob who essentially cannot do anything. So obviously not. He needs to be hit with sticks, the level of delusion is blood-boiling.
