Wondering whether the hostage-takers in France today were planning their heist for last week but decided to wait a few days for everything to calm down.
"Nah, in a week or so everyone will be less on edge about armed men taking hostages. Wait until then for the robbery."

That was a great piece. People I've linked to your "History of IS" piece have really enjoyed it, too.

So the argument that ISIS will pretend to be refugees as a means of getting into the US, obviously that's a desirable thing for them to do just to incite further hostility against refugees, but is it a more practical method of entering the US than whatever is currently available to them?

What's preventing ISIS supporters from travelling to the US at present? If potential attackers aren't making it into the states (I don't know whether they are or not) is it because border security is working or is it because there's limited attempts being made?

I'm trying to get a sense for whether accepting refugees could credibly increase the possibility of a terrorist attack in the US and if not, why not so I can respond to dicks on Facebook.

Somewhat on topic, today in California I answered the door when the burger delivery person arrived, inadvertently concealing the tip and the hand holding the tip behind the doorframe. His eyes darted down to the obscured hand, narrowing with some concern.

Then I tipped him and nobody got shot, but there was a moment there where anything could have happened.

Happy Birthday, Roger!

Fucking with that place isn't even sporting. Who could have known that maintaining a presence on "we dun need no skool" might be correlated with stunted maturity?

Sorry to hear that, Roger. Care of parents is always fucking hard.

So is this a place for people who were too fucking dumb to function on totse or similar?

I'll tell you all when the registration is no longer fucked

forum is the one that's "my" website in my profile

What forum?
one in my profile

I can't see (edit: it in) your profile, but I assume we're looking at hxxps://

In preparation for Mainstream Day, I conducted my first expedition to a Walmart and purchased some cheese in a can.

anthropological/psychoanalytical terms, "the phallus"...
From now on I'm going with "SGitR or what anthropologists would call 'kind of a dick'."

And by textbook, I mean that I finished a psychology BS a few months ago, and that is literally in the textbooks.

According to DeBeers, a .2 gram diamond was formed from 2.8 grams of pure carbon.

So, 1/14th.

Where does the rest of the carbon go?

presumably lost as assorted waste products

Have you considered reading the rest of the thread before shitting a SGitR answer out of your idiotic face?

What is SGitR? I was totally on board with the rest of that.

We seem to be asking the tough questions ITT? Okay, let's go.
