You are starting to look like one of those Northern European authors that write gigantic books where the characters all fail at everything and then everyone dies miserably.

Funny you should mention that.  :lulz:

Yeah?

PR'd in bench today. 20 pounds more than last time. Took me six weeks. Last time I PR'd it was 2.2 pounds, and that took me 12 weeks. My new bench program is the shitz

I spent Friday walking around with a rubber band around my ankles and now I feel like I got kicked in the balls with a locomotive.

But today is BENCH DAY!  :banana:

And that makes everything better.

That's true. Their religious freedom isn't really being infringed unless they are forced to perform a religious ceremony.

Yep.  Likewise, a Justice of the Peace has to perform the ceremony.

If it's for profit and not religiously-based, then they have to worry about the same discrimination issues that any other business has to deal with. 

Otherwise, you could just as easily say, "Well, those Black folks would be better off going to a restaurant that doesn't have a problem with them."

 I am deeply ashamed.  :lulz:

For some reasons which I can't put my finger on, I find myself in doubt of your sincerity.

Ouija boards allow people who can't spell to speak with spirits that also can't spell.

Which I think is awesome.

I love phrases like "please don't take this as an insult to your intelligence, but...

 :lulz: BUT it totally is, because now I will quote from a Wikipedia article a sentence that I assume you haven't read or don't understand, little lady.

 :lulz:

You should stop being so NIGEL when a man hollers science at you.  It's not HIS fault he's wrong, and you make his wee-wee shrivel up when you go all NIGEL and get uppity.  He's just trying to explain things in terms you little ladies will understand, see?  Small words, enunciated slowly.  And then you NIGELed him with some facts that were less than convenient.  Is it any wonder he lives in a garrett and never shaves?  It's because of YOU.  All of you.  Every last NIGEL.

Newton's work was modified by relativity (by removing the assumption of a central point in space).  99% of of Newton's work is still relevent (thermodynamics, gravitational attraction, etc).

MODIFIED, not shitcanned.

You've not been following the news from our glorious land, the System of National Cooperation (honest to God, that's what they's calling it)...   oh, noes...

Yeah, it's a good thing we don't have an incarceration level as high as yours, right?

I've considered getting into lifting but it's always so embarrassing to be struggling to lift the bar with no weights on it. 

That's sort of like saying you considered going to grad school, but you won't because you don't have a doctorate.   :lulz:

I am NOT trying to sell you on anything here, I am just having a laugh.

The water memory thing, it is impressively stupid.

It's so spectacularly nonsensical that it's just beyond beyond. And these people don't seem to comprehend that "higher-level" structures do not affect anything at the molecular level, they are two different orders of perspective. You can't have it both ways... it doesn't work like that. The fact that we are human does not affect the nature of the nitrogen in our bodies. They keep harping on "but there are things we don't know", while disregarding that what they propose violates what we DO know. Extraordinary claims call for extraordinary evidence -- but it's like they don't understand enough about the known world to even understand why their claims are extraordinary, or perhaps even enough to know what extraordinary is.

I'm more willing to accept that there are emergent phenomena that are responsible for ghosts, than that there are emergent phenomena that make homeopathy work, because emergence does not affect the part of the whole. By definition.

I think that says it all.  Especially this bit:

Which could apply to all manner of shit.  I am currently having a bit of fun with some Mars One freaks, who are telling me that radiation outside of our magnetic field isn't a thing (so even if Mars One wasn't a scam or at best a pipe dream), so the crews would not turn into suits full of tumors.

Also, seals on hatches and spacesuits don't ever wear out, so there is no problem with a one-way trip 144 million miles from the nearest spare parts.
