All those scary burkha-clad students at my school make me really uncomfortable.

Oh wait. No, actually they don't.

 :lulz:

I had to laugh. Because seriously, Republicans would be all over that shit if it even happened once.

It's only Tuesday, but I'm going to have to call dumbest argument of the week. The month is still young:

Quote
I see a feminist wearing a hijab like a black civil rights worker wearing a KKK hood and robe. It does not make sense. I also think its dangerous to wear a burka as you cannot identify them if they commit a crime.


My response:

Ok, your first point is, what would your reaction be if you did see a black civil rights worker dressed up like a Klansman. Seriously. What would your reaction be? Your second point, what the fuck is this, Fox News? People in burkas might rob a convenience store and we'd never know who they were from the security camera... You'd think that if that was a legitimate concern, we would see that in the news all the goddamn time until they actually did make it illegal.

Afterthought:

Hell, let's tell Pussy Riot not to wear balaclavas just in case someone robs a store near them.

Jon Stewart loves ripping on him, and does a pretty funny impression

Bruce Springsteen I think

I know who Bruce Springsteen is. I don't know who Mitch McConnell is.

Ah. He's the Republican soon-to-be majority leader in the Senate. He represents Kentucky.

Given that these are the only explanations left:

1: Overwhelming evidence of the course and timing of mammalian evolution as well as mass extinction makes this exceedingly unlikely.
2: More likely, but there's still the tricky questions of where are they now, why did they leave, and how did they get here.
3: This is explains the otherwise apparent lack of civilization, except, you know, time travel into the past, which given our current understanding of physics is less likely than interstellar travel.
4: Considering that there are several tool using species on this planet, some of which are the dinosaurs' descendants, and the only thing that sets us in the tool making department is metallurgy, I'd have to go with this option. Some species at that time was able to achieve a level of culture that achieved metalworking, but fell short of industrialization.

They could have had planet-spanning urbanization, and we would never know it.  Not a trace would remain after all this time.

Fair point. They would have had to have died out prior to exhausting carbon fuels though.

65 million years is plenty of time for petroleum deposits to form.

Yeah, but we still have deposits from the Carboniferous Era, which would have been available to civilized dinosaurs.

This is, of course assuming they didn't figure out some other way to power industrialization.

That gave me a bit of a shiver

Actually, I change my mind.

Time travelling alien-human hybrid sent back to genetically engineer and enslave dinosaurs to get double to gold out of the Earth's resources, because aliens like gold.

AMSTERDAM, NORTH HOLLAND RET, Reg

Reginald Ret illegally immigrated to Heaven in the early hours of Friday, 6 November 2014 after dying of thirst after the next Dutch person scheduled to relieve him of his finger in the dam crack obligations caught a bad case of Americanitis and decided to say "fuck this job, I'm going to smoke weed and visit a brothel." He was 31, and almost old enough to no longer be eligible for dam duty. His final words are said to have been "how is it that Amsterdam is our capital but the seat of government is the Hague?" He is the only Dutchman to have died while on dam duty. As a result, he has been posthumously awarded the Military William Order and King Willem-Alexander is personally seeing to repairing the crack by creating a statue of Reg with its finger in the crack. Reg's ashes will be interred underneath it and a bed of tulips planted around it, and 6 November has been declared a bank holiday.
Well researched.

This one was hilariously depressing though:
These are Genius!
Kill me next!
i.e. Reginald Ret died and nobody said much of anything.


E.T.A. I just noticed!

Yeah, I have no idea what happened with that. My phone ate my response, which was something along the lines of "thinking one up now"

BOZEMAN, MONTANA PANCE, Alpha

Boston refugee and drummer, Alpha "LMNO" Pance, was hired by Spirit World, Inc's indecipherable memo department. A sensible man, he decided at the onset of the Gogira Ascension Event that laid waste to much of New England was as good a time as any to pay an extended visit to Montana and pursue his passion for being a Big Gay Cowboy. Known around Bozeman as leader of inebriated vigilante group, Posse Vodka, he was largely seen as a force for good, even if that good was occasionally achieved by violating local decency laws. He leaves behind his wife, Mrs. LMNO, and his trusty horse, Kiki.

So, I've finally made an edit to Wikipedia  :lulz:
