Ambulance call:  Patient swallowed a grape whole and is complaining of feeling like it's stuck in her upper asophagus.

And this thread has now come full circle. Thanks for the ride guys.

Ahahaha!   :lol:

My first thought was, "damn, the first person to actually eat one of those things HAD to have been hungry."  It was immediately followed by, "nah, had to have been a bar bet."

Really?  Because my first thought was MMMMMMMM.

Suu, I've lived my whole life a half hour from your state capital and I haven't heard a good number of those.

I also learned recently that Rhode Island has a disturbing term for hot dogs.  What was it?  Throaters?  Phallus munchies?  BJ sticks?  I can't fucking remember.

I'd like to interrupt your scheduled porn to state that intelligence is not the most valuable asset a poster can bring here:  it's perspective.

Waterfire's most interesting aspect is the atmospheric dissonance.  On the one hand you have the picturesque views like in the photos above, and on the other hand you're surrounded and have that view obscured by drunks, street hawkers, glow sticks, and drunks.

Kukris are fun, even the low end Cold Steel one I have with the Zombie Hunter patch on the sheath.  Some friends and I will drink, bust it out, and slice through pumpkins and coconuts and such.  The pumpkin was fun because when I took the swing, I thought I missed because I felt no resistance, then half of it slid slowly off - it was like an anime movie.

The high end Cold Steel kukri is awesome.  Their website has some dude going to town on a cow carcass in some dank basement.  It's almost as disconcerting as it is awesome.

Has anybody not been condescended to while on this site?  Fuck, someone in this thread apologizing for coming across as stupid has outright told me previously that I was coming across as stupid.

As for the education thing, I have seen nobody throw their education around to the extent that I've seen people throw their lack of education around.

I understand the mindset because I've definitely turned hostile for being treated like an idiot, but just as often I see someone's attempt at honest explanation taken as some greivious insult.  Your average PD member has a good head on their shoulders, and regardless of their measured intelligence this puts them on a level pretty far above most people*.  Coming together in an environment with people who aren't used to being wrong, people are bound to get bruised egos when, gasp, they're discovered to be fallible.



*Take note, this doesn't mean we don't fall into the same traps.  We do, in fact frequently because we assume we can't.

Assuming, that since Preston is close to Norwich, there should be a Stupid Stop and Steal nearby. We should try to buy as much as possible in RI and MA though, to save precious taxes going into the hands of money grubbing Connecticunts.

If a keg is an actual consideration, I think CT carries Yeungling, which is probably comparably priced to PBR and definitely way tastier.

Well since it's not actually a Sunday/Monday thing like I thought, I can definitely make it for Saturday.  It seems spots have filled, though, and I can't swing a motel room the week before I head to Alaska.  If there ends up a spot for the Saturday count me in.  If not I might just make the drive - if I'm reading this right it's an hour and a half?  That's barely anything.

Count me in for Ratskeller on the Friday, though.   :D

Pssh, sleeping bag on the porch. ;D

I'd be alright with doing that if the place is cool with it, and of course chip in so as not to mooch.

I realize it's hard to drop the whole pessimism vs. optimism thing, but if we can look past the idealistic technological agriculture utopia and the ravening hordes of starving mouths, we might be able to actually talk about this.

Carrying capacity is an iffy number dependent on practices, that's a given.  It is, however, a number that will need to be faced.  The question isn't what the number is - the question is how to deal with the problem of the number existing in the first place.  It's 2 billion or it's 22 billion, whatever, it's still a question of what to do upon the number becoming a problem.  So we're soon to be waist deep in, well, waste - how do we prevent that at its core, which is an issue of overpopulation?  (I see Cataplanga addressed this while I was typing)

There isn't any easy answer for a population reduction.  I'm all for the one child per female thing but it's not enforceable, and if it was I would trust NO HUMAN BEING in the world to actually do it responsibly.  It gets too much into eugenics.  It, as Roger suggested, would have to be done covertly.  My problem is that this, again, targets specific populations.  Yes, these are the ones that are growing out of control but it seems a drastically ugly way to do it.

As for who would do it, living down as one of history's most notorious evil fucks?  Eh, I personally could live with it.  You're a demon for 50-100 years, then you're still considered bad but your name just gets used as a punch line in whatever equivalent there is to the Internet in the 22nd century.

I wonder what effect education would have in reducing reproduction rates.  If the whole issue could be addressed in a feasibly humane way.

When I played, ten years ago or so, I would hate when people tried to tell me how you should play, whether that be with an efficient murder machine deck or a drawn out attack and counterattack deck.

I was a fan of monstrous, stupid powerful creatures, and my decks were designed to shut down creatures long enough to let me get my stupid powerful ones out.  It wasn't crazy effective, but I had fun with it.  There'd always be the guys at the tournaments I knew for sure would bring me down with their ridiculous combos 9/10 times and that was fine.  That one time I got the right card out and fucked their worlds was pretty awesome as well.

Shit, my friend and I used to roll team games against each other with 3 decks a piece, doing nothing but build for like 10 rounds and then having a stupidly powerful battle.

I think I still have a monochrome deck of every color but blue built in my basement.
