Thread became funny!

WHY, FORD?

OH GOD.

WHY NOW?

YOU BROUGHT THIS ON YOURSELF

"Why Ford." and "Why now." are indeed awkward grammatical constructions. Seems like there ought to be a question mark there.

that i get

Ditto, it made me almost giggle a bit.

"Why, Ford? Why NOW?"

Yeah, that's exactly how I read it.

Well... calling the mind-hack superstition will work well if you want to remove a "curse".  But calling it a superstition won't work at all if you want your star hitter to actually nail that home-run.

And anyway, this is a bit of a thread-jack.  TGRR wants this to be a thread mocking people who believe they can light a candle by thinking really hard at it... and I'm all about mocking the Pentagon.

Why?  The Pentagon creates more chaos than anything other than law enforcement.
All too true.  But of course, that result is the exact opposite of their intent, so, mockery is mandatory.  Well, maybe not mandatory, but  lots of fun anyway.

Why would their intent matter?

Because it means they fucked up. We get to laugh at them for that, don't we?

Aneristic Illusions / Re: Taliban: not as stoned.

Guess who does fund the Taliban, though?

The American taxpayer, apparently http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/taliban/funding-the-taliban

Quote
The manager of an Afghan firm with lucrative construction contracts with the U.S. government builds in a minimum of 20 percent for the Taliban in his cost estimates. The manager, who will not speak openly, has told friends privately that he makes in the neighborhood of $1 million per month. Out of this, $200,000 is siphoned off for the insurgents.

If negotiations fall through, the project will come to harm — road workers may be attacked or killed, bridges may be blown up, engineers may be assassinated.

The degree of cooperation and coordination between the Taliban and aid workers is surprising, and would most likely make funders extremely uncomfortable.

One Afghan contractor, speaking privately, told friends of one project he was overseeing in the volatile south. The province cannot be mentioned, nor the particular project.

“I was building a bridge,” he said, one evening over drinks. “The local Taliban commander called and said ‘don’t build a bridge there, we’ll have to blow it up.’ I asked him to let me finish the bridge, collect the money — then they could blow it up whenever they wanted. We agreed, and I completed my project.”

In the south, no contract can be implemented without the Taliban taking a cut, sometimes at various steps along the way.

One contractor in the southern province of Helmand was negotiating with a local supplier for a large shipment of pipes. The pipes had to be brought in from Pakistan, so the supplier tacked on about 30 percent extra for the Taliban, to ensure that the pipes reached Lashkar Gah safely.

Once the pipes were given over to the contractor, he had to negotiate with the Taliban again to get the pipes out to the project site. This was added to the transportation costs.

“We assume that our people are paying off the Taliban,” said the foreign contractor in charge of the project.

In Farah province, local officials report that the Taliban are taking up to 40 percent of the money coming in for the National Solidarity Program, one of the country’s most successful community reconstruction projects, which has dispensed hundreds of millions of dollars throughout the country over the past six years.

LOL pwned

Beautiful.

I don't know.  I think it's like LMNO points out.  If you use commercial outlets as the measuring stick, well sure.  I've been a metal-head for a long time, and I've seen peaks and valleys.  When metal blew up in the late 70s/early 80s, there was some pretty good shit coming out.  Then, it kind of stagnated for a few years and then blew up again in the early 90s.  Now, in the late 00's, the folk metal genre is starting to really develop and there are some bands like Moonsorrow, Eluveitie, and Finntroll who are putting out some pretty impressive, and different, stuff.  But, at the same time, you have the metalcore puppy-mill churning out the Lamb of Gods, Hatebreeds, Triviums, Shadows Falls, etc.,

So, maybe you just need to look more. 

This. Personally, I generally prefer older bands, and I'll admit that most of the bands that are around now that I like have been around since at least the 90s, but there are good new bands out there.

Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjrVFqKt6_I

The trouble is that there's this big scene of asshole hipsters who pride themselves on knowing obscure bands. I've actually avoided looking for good bands out of fear of becoming one of them. A life spent chasing indie cred is a terrible thing indeed.

Do you even read what you write?  Or do you view stupid pointless stabs at pedantry to be somehow adding to the fucking conversation?  I mean, what the fuck did you think you were adding by your comment?  I was OBVIOUSLY MAKING A FUCKING JOKE, and you JUST HAD TO SHOW HOW HIP YOU ARE, right?

Oh, THAT'S how you read my post! I was actually trying to add to the joke by making fun of the trendiness of it all.

You failed.

I can see that now.
