Agree with you 100% on the favorite person.

I am a long-time Orioles fan, which is about the most depressing thing you can be.  I used to listen to O's games on the radio every night back in the 80s when we lived in Bowie.  Now, whenever I hear Jon Miller on ESPN, I still think I'm listening to the O's.

opebo, you've probably answered this a lot, but I've never read it.  Why are you in Thailand?

I prefer living here to living the the States:  better climate, much better food, and Thai women are nice.  Most importantly I can live like a king here on my income, instead of merely middle class like back home.  For example living in a hotel a few steps from the beach costs about $180 a month with maid service, and a delicious meal - with fresh ingredients (something you don't find in the US) costs about $1.

But though Thailand is my favorite, there are many other countries I'd like to try, particularly in South America generally.

Interesting, what's crime like there?

There is so little crime it is almost uncanny.  Most people attribute it to the Buddhist culture. 

Near Japanese rarity of crime, even though the country is fairly poor (percapita GDP around 2500 I think).

You are correct, I would have put that as one of mine if I was without inhibitions.

LOL, can't say I disagree! ;)

Props to Tory for mentioning Blur. I actually like tons of bands, and Blur is near the top. I want to own all their albums. Britpop overall is amazing.

Agree with you 100% on the favorite person.

I am a long-time Orioles fan, which is about the most depressing thing you can be.  I used to listen to O's games on the radio every night back in the 80s when we lived in Bowie.  Now, whenever I hear Jon Miller on ESPN, I still think I'm listening to the O's.

I'm young enough and I STILL think of the Orioles when I hear Miller...He's got one of the best voices for announcing in all of sports.

I still stick by the Orioles -- even though they suck. Palmeiro is my all-time favorite player (got to meet him in person years ago at a "Baysox vs Orioles" game. I was jaw-dropped and he jokingly replied "I'm his cousin."

That is exactly where they moved. :) Since slavery was still legal in Brazil at the time they were hoping to restart their plantations and many also moved their because they couldn't imagine living under a federal government that had destroyed the original US Constitution.

opebo, you've probably answered this a lot, but I've never read it.  Why are you in Thailand?

I prefer living here to living the the States:  better climate, much better food, and Thai women are nice.  Most importantly I can live like a king here on my income, instead of merely middle class like back home.  For example living in a hotel a few steps from the beach costs about $180 a month with maid service, and a delicious meal - with fresh ingredients (something you don't find in the US) costs about $1.

But though Thailand is my favorite, there are many other countries I'd like to try, particularly in South America generally.

You should try Somalia.

Ilikeverin got it right, sort of. Asatru is a generic term for a number of very, very closely religions based on Germanic heathenism. I tend to follow the Anglo-Saxon branch, mostly because I'm 96% British, but Scandinavian and Pan-Germanic versions are also popular.

We are polytheistic, and believe in Woden, Thunor, Frigga, and such. And while Asatruars are generally conservative (infinitly more so than the ultra-liberal wiccans, to say the least), I imagine we'd probably scare the hell out of the religious right. :D

Are you sure you're not "black Irish"? Those were Irish that mixed with Spaniards when the Spanish Armada wrecked on the Irish coast.

Myth.  Inhabitants of Western Ireland have always had a prevalence for dark hair /light eyes and geneticists believe these are the original pre-celtic inhabitants of Ireland.  The Welsh have these traits even more than Western Irish- look at Catherine Zeta Jones and Tom Jones.  There might have been a few Spanish that made it to Irish shores but they did not significantly change genes.  Interestingly, the Irish share a lot of genetic markers with the Basques.

States trust me it is a myth.  It is the probably the product of an overactive Irish imagination and love for the tall tale.  Inhabitants of Western Ireland do tend to have darker hair than E. Ireland but the complexion is usually pale and eyes light.  There are exceptions of course. 

http://www.darkfiber.com/blackirish

Many Irish had dark hair etc long before the Spanish Armada in 1588.  Genetic information points to this trait being from the original inhabitants of Ireland around 8000-9000 years ago long before the Celtic invasions.

She may be of Irish descent that happens to originally come from Spain but the common assertion that dark hair and other traits comes from the Armada is patently false.  Traits are seen in Paleolithic inhabitants and descendants  of Ireland and Wales.  Again look at Tom Jones or Catherine Zeta Jones who are Welsh.  No Armada or Spanish invasion there.

I'm young enough and I STILL think of the Orioles when I hear Miller...He's got one of the best voices for announcing in all of sports.

That SOB Peter Angelos basically fired him.  I think it is safe to say that Angelos is not my favorite person.

I still stick by the Orioles -- even though they suck. Palmeiro is my all-time favorite player (got to meet him in person years ago at a "Baysox vs Orioles" game. I was jaw-dropped and he jokingly replied "I'm his cousin."

I still can't believe Bowie has a AA team.  They stared play several years after we moved to Wisconsin.

The sad thing about the O's is that they have no excuse for their suckage.  At least the Brewers can claim the whole small market / small payroll sob story.  The O's spend a fortune for their 70 wins year after year.  Still, I stand by them... and my Cubbies in the NL.

According to surveys done by various Welsh Governmental offices and stuff, the stereotype of people in Wales (according to people in England) is:

"A land of short dark men singing hymns in the shadow of slag heaps"

This was the case in the '50's as well. Probably before then.

Actually, it is called the Society of Friends. Quaker is like Mormon in the sense that what the adherents are called seems odd in view of the actual name of the denomination.

I know that.
It's because George Fox once told a magistrate to "tremble before the word of the Lord" that they gained that name.

No matter what they're telling me
I won't feel dirty and buy into their misery
I won't be shamed cause I believe that love is free
It fuels the heart and sex is not the enemy

A revolution is the solution

There's two types of people: Those who absolutely love "Ring of Fire," and "Folsom Prison Blues," and those who don't.

I'm part of the former, as I'm sure you are too :)

As a fan of (I would assume) Alt-rock Clay, have you heard his cover of the NIN song "Hurt?" It's even better than the original.

His cover of "Hurt" is better than the original, yes... I love that song.  But I like the older songs too.  As a matter of fact, at this very moment, I'm listening to "Cocaine Blues."

Johnny Cash is nothing short of amazing. I've listened to him since I was little. It's really hard to pick out a favorite although "Cocaine Blues" is up there.

Have any of you seen the trailer for the Cash film, "Walk the Line", with Jaoquin(sp?) Pheonix as Cash? From the looks of the trailer, he pulls it off and has a voice thats similar to Cash's own.

The biggest group in Connecticut is ex-New Yorkers. Long Island got too crowded so over the past 30 years they've been moving here. We're even starting to get some good delis and pastry shops, used to have to go down to the Island for the good stuff like cannolis.

I'm also an ex-New Yorker.  I moved to Connecticut from Westchester County because I couldn't afford a decent place to live in Westchester.

I've never regretted the move.  I prefer Connecticut over New York now, and wouldn't move back even though I could afford a good house in Westchester County now.

Well, they were my thoughts, because I've never read the Philly Inquierer. Remember, I'm a Pittsburgher. And I don't see how it's word for word. I didn't even say the same century or the same way as the Philly paper did.

But I'm glad to know that a newspaper agrees with me.

The Inquirer is probably the most quoted paper in the state. Also, many left wing groups have been using that quote in their ads. About a month or two ago, Politics1.com had that ad on their homepage. Also, notice how I said you took it almost word for word (which is true).

I just found it odd that you'd use a line so similar and then deny that you've seen it.

I LOVE House!  It's so hilarious!  My favorite line was when Foreman was gonna die and Cameron said to House, "He's black!"  and House responded with, "Cameron!  How long have you been withholding this information?"

House reminds me of Fezzy in person (not all the time, but the sarcastic, uber-logical parts).

It's surprising more people don't watch it.

Wait a few years and don't give up.  It will get better for heavier guys as they get older.  Just show success or the fact you will be, a personality, and know how to treat a woman and you will be fine.  I also dare say you should assess your standards and plan accordingly if you know what I mean.  Of my past 5 dates only one has in normal weight range and she had some personality issues such as she didn't get out much and was scared to death of the city.  She was also very timid when I dance with her at McFadden's.

But that's nothing. My first girlfriend broke up with me when she found out I was a Democrat.

They were breaking up with you anyway.  It seems like bullsh**t excuses as to why.  I've gotten what I did for a living along with living with parents as another good one.  I only accepted a few reasons, most of them are excuses.  I once had a grad student who was bogged down and I could tell in her voice she really was so I bought it.  The one after that said she had work the next morning at 8 and I asked her to go to another bar in Manayunk.  I didn't buy that because I said we'd go for drinks after dinner and she said nothing about work before.  You have to think in terms of whether you buy it or you don't.  I don't know your situation but you have to move on.

Wow, a hard-core redneck-style Southerner who happens to be Roman Catholic.  That's a rarity.  For some reason, I always thought you were Southern Baptist or a member of some other Protestant.  I guess based on my travels and contacts with the Deep South, I always thought of it as a solidly Protestant area.  Other than a few Louisiana soldiers of French descent, I bet Catholics were a very small minority in the Confederate forces.

What about the thousands of Maryland soldiers? Also, I believe Patrick Cleburne (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrick_Cleburne) was Catholic as well. Also, the Catholic Church and the Confederate States (http://www.sspx.ca/Angelus/2005_June/Catholic_Church_Confederate_States.htm). Pope Pius IX supported the confederacy and saw the American North as having "threatening tendencies" (probably because of the Norths' harsh repression of Judiasm and Irish Catholicism).

It is said that the American Civil war was just an extension of the conflicts between the British, Scots, Irish and Welsh. The North, was of course, dominated by people of British stock descent, while the south was a whole hodgepodge of groups, mainly Scots-irish/Scots/irish/welsh. I believe their was actually a mix of Irish Catholics with the other groups you've mentioned. For example my wifes ancestors were all Protestants of Irish descent.

Was your wife Protestant?  It would be interesting if she converted, since I always thought that usually it's the husband who converts to the wife's religion.  This happened with both President Bush and his brother, as well as my parents.

I take it the Catholicism came from the Austrian branch of your family.

I didn't know I had to Convert  :P

Actually I am still United Methodist--albeit I haven't been to church lately.To answer the main question, the Irish who fought for the Confederacy were  almost exclusively of protestants of Northern Irish Descent, their  ancestors of course being largely Scots-Irish Presbyterians and Anglo-Irish Episcopalians .  Most of these soldiers had  descended from Soldiers who fought with Washington in the Revolutionary War--as had my family.  Now, in some states, Florida, Louisiana, and South Carolina, there were enclaves of Catholic Confederates, but they were far outnumbered by those of Protestant descent.  Of course, that was a direct opposite of the Union forces where the Irish soldiers were primarily Catholic. 

As far as famous Celtic Confederates:  Patrick Cleburne, PGT Beauregard, Robert E. Lee, Thomas Jonathon Jackson(of Ulster Descent), JEB Stuart, and Jubal Early to name a few.

That didn't happen in my family, although my mom would've left Catholicism anyway. If it weren't for that I doubt either one would've. I know of plenty of mixed marriages where neither one converted, so it's usually not an issue.

Neat.  I'd really like to get into geneaology someday.  I know a rough history of my family, but lately I've been asking my grandmother a lot of questions about my mother's side.  She's in her 80s and, well, you've got to grab these opportunities while you still can.

When my aunt had died, she gave me all of her books and records on our family tree.  I look at it and can't make heads or tails out of it.  I think I need to hire someone to sit down, create a database, and let them plug all of this data in and create a "tree" from there.  However, some parts which I was able to read and understand was how my great great grandfather was a miner in England, some of my relatives were indoctrinated with the Cherokee shortly before they were forced to travel down the Trail of Tears, and some of my relatives were a part of the Shelton gang in Illinois during prohibition.  Outside of that, it's just names, dates, and places for generations of my relatives and their in-laws.

It pays well, and I hope to eventually be a published author and therefore not have to work in an office any more. I suppose I am not doing my job justice; it is interesting, in a way, to be making bureaucratic decisions about children's books. (I work for Scholastic Co.) Just not that interesting.

Awesome! I've been to Alaska before, it's actually a fairly beautiful place. Where about do you live? Anchorage, I would hope. I can't imagine a human being surviving anywhere farther north. Then again, I find Oklahoma to be too cold in the winter. :P

Glad you liked the place. :) Yup, I live in Anchorage. Born and raised here. I like the cold, just not the wind that sometimes accompanies it. I could not imagine surviving in Texas during the summer. I have a sneaking suspicion that I'd melt in a hurry. :P

It's not so bad depending on where you stay. In Houston, where I was born and raised, the humidity is enough to make you maim other people. Austin whether is much like California whether, sunny and dry. Dallas has the best whether, and actually has seasons.

It would probably be bad for me no matter where I was. To me, the high 80s are pretty unbearable. O_O Ah, how Alaska has prepared me for hot weather. :P

O_O Whoa!! I'm a big Packers and Seahawks fan too!!! :o (As evidenced by their helmets in my siggy) :P

But for baseball, I'm pretty much a Mariner fan. The D-Backs are my second favorite team, but I don't identify as a D-Backs fan. I always root for the M's no matter who they play.

For football, whenever the Pack and Hawks play, no matter who wins, I'm happy. :) Though I hate to see one knock the other out of the playoffs. I love both teams, so that's why I identify myself as a Packer and Seahawk fan.

Gender: I do not lack a Y chromosome
Age: 18
Race/ethnic composition: White, Caucasian, whatever

Location: "Live" in Castle Rock, go to college at Boulder. I'm mostly at Boulder nowadays
Occupation: Student. I tried to get a job at Borders but they never called me back. I haven't the foggiest idea why. I have a pretty kickass resume I think...2 years as a shift manager at Dairy Queen, eagle scout, I.B.... Now that I think about it, I probably failed that personality test they give you. They asked me if I was annoyed by slow moving people. Well, I am! So I said Yes. But I think I was supposed to say no. Oh well.
Party of Choice: Democratic
Favorite Musician(s): Nightwish, Muse, Kamelot, techno etc as of recently
Favorite President: FDR.
Favorite Sports team: lol sports (except ping-pong, badminton and running). But I support the Colorado teams if they go far.

Your other interests: Video games, particularly jRPGs used to be big for me although I've kind of stopped since college. Hmm...
Do you live by yourself: What a creepy question.
Do you have any siblings? I have one emo brother. Guess you can count him as a sister
Are you married? No, but when I do I'm not inviting you to my wedding just for asking me this pointless question. LOL!
What year did you join Atlas? Feb. 2007. I hit post 1000 like in November though. So only relatively recently have I become more active...for better or for worse.
What are you listening to now? Knights of Cydonia
Do you have any nieces, nephews? Yes
Who's your favorite 2008 candidate from the 2 major parties? Obama
What city did you grow up in? Stupidly vague question. Do you mean where I was born? Pasadena California. "Grew up" is way too vague.
Have you ever been attracted to someone of the same sex? If you count really effeminate guys that I thought were girls, then yes.
If you could pick your own nationality, what nationality would you pick? I like America. I also like Canada and England. And let's not forget Japan where I'll probably study abroad. Or two. Ha~!

My signature is missing a couple of images too. Aside from the Mariners, I also love the Seahawks and Packers. I need to find another picture of those teams' helmets. :P

Title: Re: All about yourself!
Post by: Benwah [why on Earth do I post something] Courseyay on June 25, 2008, 01:31:28 pm
Well, after 254 messages here's a short presentation of what we could call my person:

Age: born the day where Yannick Noah won Rolland Garros. You can search and calculate. Oh ok, ok, I'll avoid you searching, I'll give you the date, 1983. Will you succeed in calculating alone? ;-)

Race/ethnic composition: I tend to be what we can call "white", and when the sun shines I take some colors which tend to brown, but just on arms, because I use to be in T-shirt. Then, I'm French, and as far as I know, my grand-grand-parents, I've not other origin.

Religion: Baptized Roman Catholic, went to catechism 2 years when child, did my 1st communion, but to me what some call "God" is just a spiritual concept, so I don't believe in what some call "God". Religion? I think it will be THE point of this century...

Height: I don't know with english measures.

Weight: Same thing, I don't know with english measures.

Location: Geographically, I'm currently in a village of the South West of France. Mentally, I use to try to be where the future would be... I don't say I succeed in, I just say I try...

Occupation: Watching and wondering, and currently I also help my father who is setting on an exploitation of organic vegetables, that's why I'm in a village.

Party of Choice: I don't have one, I no more really believe in politics. Don't you remember? I've already told you. I think THE point will be religion...

Favorite President: Well, I'll say of the 5th French republic, Charles De Gaulle.

Favorite Sports: Hmm, I would say soccer, maybe cycling too, but anyway I don't really practice each of them. For me sports became more something that happens on TV. And on TV, I can watch a lot of different sports, that's interesting, especially concerning the place it takes in our modern societies.

Favorite Book:
I don't have read a lot, and I think that book is a dying format, and that writing will have to find new ways of existing and also to do a large place to video. This said, there are 2 books I liked a lot: "1984" by Georges Orwell and "Brave new world" by Aldous Huxley.

Favorite Movies: First, a Japanese one, "The glamorous life of Sachiko Hanaï" (2003) by Mitsuru Meikei , I really recommend it, I really love the provocating lightness and humor of this movie, that's not for children, very explicit. Second, "Un film parlé" (2003) by Manoel de Oliveira a Portuguese, I think the film is very pertinent concerning what it says about our epoch and the end is surprising. Last one, "O'Brother", with G. Clooney, I love the lightness of this movie and also the soundtrack.

Favorite Show: If that means my favorite TV series, that's unmistakably South Park, even if in France it is on paying Channel that I don't have.

Favorite persons on Atlas: I love everyone, and even outside of Atlas!

Favorite Colors: Here's something I never really wondered about, I know the colors I don't like, but my favorites, I can't really say...

Your other Interests: Watching, wondering, being on the Net, especially writing on forums.

Do you live by yourself? No, at my father's home.

Do you have any siblings? 2 small brothers, 4 years between each brothers.

Are you married? No, and as far as know, I don't really expect to be one day.

What year did you join Atlas? 2007

Do you have any nieces, nephews?
Strange question, no, I don't.

What's your favorite candidate from the 2 major parties?
Wow! Well, I prefer the personality of Obama, but I don't feel he is enough strong to well manage the power in this epoch. Maybe I'm wrong.

What city did you grow up in? My parents moved a lot during my childhood, so I moved a lot with them, quite only in the south part of France, in different places of it, in different sorts of places, in country, in different middle cities.

Have you ever been attracted to someone of the same sex? Hmm, no.

If you could pick your own nationality, what nationality would you pick?
If ever I would have to do such a choice, I'll analyze the present situation and I'll choose what I'll consider as the best for me. Presently, I've no problem with the French one, which does not mean that I have no problem with France... ;-)

Post the most recent picture of yourself here:

I don't have some on the computer, and I'm not a fan of being pictured, this said, I'm not always looking to avoid it, but I don't really look for it.



Well, here we are, all questions answered.

To finish this presentation, I would like to say that I'm aware that my English is not very perfect and very rich, but, indulge me, I'm French! I don't say that only for joke, in France, we do as if everyone was speaking our language abroad, so we don't learn foreign languages very well, especially english. We are not the only one to do it, but these who speak English can do like it, us, we just can't! More of that we don't really accept words from abroad, we often try to translate everything in French. Well, this said, this way of thinking goes down and down, and is anyway downer than in Quebec I think. Here, youth don't really care about it, and in their language there must be at least 1/4 of english, at least!

Well, well, well, what to say after it...?

Hmm, I'm really interesting in trying to see what could happen in the future, and I try to do it without telling me some fairy tales. I do it because I think that if we want to give us the best future and to take the best decisions at present, we must wonder on what could be the future. I think that for humanity short-term is a non-sense, the only possibility to continue is to think in long-term. So, you can imagine what I think of our epoch...

Well, well, well, other things...?

Hmm, I enjoy Atlas, the fact to can meet peoples from different part of the world, even if quite all from West, and to can discuss of what's happening in the world. Yeah, I enjoy that.

So, and I'll finish this presentation message by this,

Thanks!

I have no idea, but it isn't a white African ancestry if that's what you're getting at.  That's what I said and my grandmother made it VERY clear there was a black influence in our genealogy. :P  I'm not sure I buy it, but apparently her cousin spent years researching and compiling our family history.  I think it's funny either way, just because of what I look like, that there even could be black mixed in there.

No, I wasn't getting at anything. I was just wondering if your ancestors came from North Africa, south Africa, west or east.

You can upload an image onto the internet via http://tinypic.com/ (http://tinypic.com/) or www.photobucket.com (http://www.photobucket.com).  There are other free image hosting sites, but these are the most commonly used.

Make sure you are putting the link these sites give you into [*img][/img] (without the *) brackets and that the link has an image extension at the end of it (such as .jpg or .gif).

Dang, I am the highest person on Authoritation Left, Even though my type is called Populist, am I Liberal or Conservative Leaning?
Neither, you're a statist. Populist is a misnomer anyway since virtually any ideology can be framed as anti-elitist.

Hello everyone, I've been a member here for a while, basically to catch up on the latest political news, and I suppose I'll now start posting some, so here we go:

Gender: Male
Age: 17
Race/Ethnicity: Quite Italian, not sure of the percentages.
Religion: eh, don't really care about it; if I had to answer, Protestant
Height: 5'10"
Weight: Around 210
Location: Ringoes, NJ
Raised in: Ringoes, NJ (kind of pitiful)
Occupation: Student
Favorite President: JFK
Favorite Sports Team: Red Sox
Other Interests: Baseball, biking, history.


I've noticed other D-NJ's on the board, some who have been labelled trolls and such, so I may switch to another state (perhaps for wherever I go to college), but for now I'll keep it like this so everyone knows, and don't worry, I plan to stick around after the election.

We are actually a Blue-Ribbon School (w/e that means), we test high in other areas (I pulled off a 5 in AP History), but our Physics teacher is a former Lucent employee who got laid off and isn't much of a teacher.

In summary, yes. She also said than I was a danger for the society. To summarize what happened, another began to violently and voluntary hit me during her course. She saw and did nothing. I reacted and this became a fight with the other student. She separated us. She acted with the other student like an innocent victim and she began to yell to me in front of the class. He answered her than she was incompetent, than she shouldn't be there because she has not basic notions of pedagogy and than she should stop to think than she know everything because she has a university diploma in arts. The bell rings, everybody exits the classroom but me and she said me that.

That finished in the principal office and I got a exemption from art courses for the remainder of the year.

My Grade 9 History teacher was the most boring person I ever met. She just gave us some textbook questions to do and write random essays all class.

I suppose no teacher ever hated me, save maybe for the Grade 8 Art teacher, Mrs. Soni, since I pissed her off intentionally all the time. She yelled at me in Grade 9 for ditching all the NJHS meetings. Maybe Harriman hates me now if he ever found out what I did to him.

He answered her than she was incompetent, than she shouldn't be there because she has not basic notions of pedagogy and than she should stop to think than she know everything because she has a university diploma in arts. The bell rings, everybody exits the classroom but me and she said me that.

That finished in the principal office and I got a exemption from art courses for the remainder of the year.

Wow.

My life seems so boring in comparison.

Nice.  UVA Law is a very good school and has some impressive alumni.  One recommendation I have is that you consider majoring in Accounting or a hard science in college, so as to qualify you for jobs in tax law or patent law.  I, unfortunately, majored in Finance.  

Best of luck to you.  Let me know if you need any help/advice.    

P.S.  Should you graduate from UVA Law, I'm sure you won't have any trouble getting a job regardless of what your undergrad major was.

Sure.  If you make good money, you're gonna have to work hard for it.  Corportate attorneyrs are generally the cream of the crop, so it's definitely something to shoot for.  A finance degree will definitely help you in classes like Corporations, Securities Regulations, Mergers & Acquisitions, etc., but it's not required.  If you want to be a tax attorney, however, I'm almost positive that you need some type of an accounting background.

I'm a business major who is planning on majoring in finance, but I still have time to switch to accountancy. I am interested in going into corporate law myself. I hear tax attorney's make great money but work all the time...

Sure.  If you make good money, you're gonna have to work hard for it.  Corportate attorneyrs are generally the cream of the crop, so it's definitely something to shoot for.  A finance degree will definitely help you in classes like Corporations, Securities Regulations, Mergers & Acquisitions, etc., but it's not required.  If you want to be a tax attorney, however, I'm almost positive that you need some type of an accounting background.

I want to go into corporate law. That's something I've been wanting to do with my life for a while.

Helps certainly, but not required (or generally necessarily).  You're right that an understanding of accounting helps (damn capital accounts...they're such a pain in the ass when you're talking about business transaction taxation).

My Tax prof was japanese language major at his undergrad.

IB doesn't care about grammatical stuff. They care a sh**tload about oral stuff and reading comprehension. Both of which I easily can get 100% on.

I'm kind of surprised IB doesn't care about grammar or anything. I'd have expected those clowns to care a lot about that and make yet another stupid fascist rule.

Madeleine Meilleur, the Liberal MPP for Ottawa-Vanier. She's also Minister of Community and Social Services and Minister of Francophone Affairs.

I can get an 'A' on any paper I choose to spend an hour on but I'll never beat nicotine.  I'll take it to my grave.

I experienced withdrawal after I stopped taking pain medicine that was prescribed to me that my doctor told me was not at all addictive.  Well, I can tell you that it is!

It was probably the most awful feeling in the world.  I couldn't sleep, I was sweating, I felt extremely depressed, and my entire body hurt 10 times more than it did before I ever started taking the pain meds.

I called my doctor right away and he got me back on the prescription and weaned me off... then it was painless... but I will never do that again.

No matter what medicine you take, ALWAYS wean off of it no matter how redundant it may seem.  Withdrawal is one of the most stressful things you can put your body and your mind through.

Yes, that's weird. That's just in NJ or in US as a whole?
That's just in his personal parallel universe.

No it's true. Minorities(whether rich or poor) have a better chance at receiving grants and financial aid from the government, simply because of their race.

Then why does the FAFSA form have a box for race?

Statistical purposes.

Oh of course, the dread "statistical purposes". If you don't think they look at a persons race, and make that a factor, then you are just naive.
