Because, I sometimes struggle trying to tell if this board is one huge inside joke that I'm missing.

I would be, but it's quite clear to anybody who knows even an inkling about US politics that the Obama campaign is going to flatten Romney and it won't even be close.  This is such a certainty, that I'm pretty much read to just troll with the more deluded Republicans of the board.

My posts on this board vary from being completely serious to being completely unserious. I think it's easy to tell the difference.

If not, though, PROTIP: any moderator actions by myself, Morden, or Andrew are serious unless they involve attacking IE or FC boards with topic relocation, but that was just that one time

Also, any post I make that's more than, say, five sentences long is almost certainly serious because I have a tendancy to be very perfectionistic when I make the effort to do a big post

Yeah.  I never really liked this particular board, but now, I actually kind of hate it to the core.

Yeah, I definitely feel like I'm missing something more often than I'd like. This place is just absurd, which makes the seriousness about it that much more confusing.

That's the same for many people here, I think it is pretty easy to tell when people on this forum are being serious, sarcastic, etc.

I do agree that the horrors and humiliations of life, and aging (even the milder version faced by privileged such as yourself) will 'pound' him into a less 'cocky' state, Torie.  However I don't think a necessary component of this miserable existence is that each election be close, or that his side may not occasionally 'flatten' the other.  After all, you had your Reagan landslide - did it really make any difference in your cocky?

It's not an "inside joke" if it's shared by seven billion people and you're the only one left out.

Why is this in FC now? It was intended to be in the 2012 board.

Because the 2012 board is intended for discussion of the 2012 election, not rhetorical questions about Atlas itself.

I love the fact that Morden moved this to FC, given the tinytext of my earlier post in this thread.

I have no idea what 99% of the threads here are about. Mainly stuff relating to Opebo, BRTD, and Tweed. Then again, I am still a newbie.
