Literate Chaotic / A quote the LDD might like...

Yo momma is a semantic illusion!


"A Spanish designer has come up with what could be the perfect solution for the woman who feels frustrated that she has to do all the house chores.

It is a washing machine called "Your Turn", which will not let the same person use it twice in a row. "

But what if you're other half goes away for a while?

Quote from: Arcane Synonym

I'll tell you what makes humans special. We're the animal that laughs at itself. We have to laugh at ourselves, because very few of us a prepared to deal with the pain. That's what makes a joke funny. Someone gets hurt. Someone has their feelings hurt, or are subjected to bodily harm, or makes a fool of themself. And we laugh at it. Most of us have to laugh at it, because if we don't laugh at it, if we don't shrug it off with a guffaw, we'll have to think about it. About the pain.

Laughter is a lie. What makes Man special is the ability to live outside of reality. No animal but Man can Lie.

Actually chimps can definetly lie, and I believe some other primates can too, although I have to check.

A team of Australian drug sniffer dogs has been sent back for retraining, after it was found they could only track talcum powder, not cocaine.

Or Kill Me / Natural Patriotism

Having been raised in two countries, and being of dual nationality myself, I have always found patriotism to be an odd thing.  Countries are made, by the process of history.  Your birth in any locale is chance. Hell, until the Peace of Westphalia, nationalism didnt realy exist at all, in Europe at least.  Its part of social cohesion, an ideal of unity, and so ultimately of social control.

That said, I view a patriot as someone who identifies with the core values of their nation. This generally means the betterment of their own people, freedom, liberty, justice and all those other nice things valued by the majority of humanity.  This also means disagreeing when your country is wrong, or runs contary to said core values.

Being a dittohead is not patriotic.  Blindly parrotting the leaderships current line (subject to change due to elections or circumstance) is not patriotism.  That's blind obedience.  Such ideas of "patriotism" should have died half a century ago.

Then again, what do I know?  As far as I am concerned, borders are errected to be crossed and I have more alleigance to my ideals than my passport.  Countries live and die, new ones appear all the time.  Take someon born in 1930 and compare world maps throughout their life to the present.  Constant change.  I'm too much of a historian to put faith in any territory.

I have to say GLT this was an interesting and enjoying post.  I didnt say anything, as I guessed it was aimed that those who knew you before you came back, but I liked it.  I may not have agreed with it, but I found it better than the absolute fluff that seemed to annoy everyone else.  Not that I'm advocating seriousness.  But it just seemed more...I dont really know.  But definetly a good read.

After reading over this topic, I've decided on an appropriate response.

I'd hit it.  Two times.

Only two times?

My PC dislikes mp4. Is there anything other than quicktime I can download for free to play them with, or am I screwed?

I'll take this one.

Fluffy, he's been trying to find a way to work the NSRA into the storyline without letting the NSRA become the storyline. [/delusionsofgrandeur]


That dickhead says he's already got the NSRA worked into the storyline, but he can't figure out what the Ocean has anything to do with anything.

What a moronic asshole.

Oi! He wants you back sooner or later.  Now, are we going to do this the easy way or the hard one, where I have to beg and plead and be a general embarassment?
