Do you have anything with Juggalos?

Mlp and juggalos? the ICP kind or the prostitute kind?

There is only one kind of juggalo. The other word you are thinking of is "gigolo".

What's amazing is that I've used that bit, and it went totally over my head in this thread.   :lulz:

 :lol: I love it when you respond about juggalos with information about gigolos.

Outside of the scientific community, it's a little known fact that cringing is a defensive mechanism designed to protect the cringer from Nigelling. Tensing up, ducking the head and tightening the abdomen are all classic signs that a person is trying to defend themselves from an imminent attack. The attacker being defended against was unknown until recently. Modern image-capturing technology has allowed us a slow-motion glimpse at people cringing, giving us our first look at a glimmer of Nigel sidling up to each and every one of them.

We now know that when horrifically objectionable and awkwardness inducing content is viewed, Nigel will almost without fail and through the misunderstood power of quantums, make a brief appearance behind and slightly to the side of the viewer of the materal and inspect it over their shoulder, vibrating at a menacing frequency and gibbering with delight. At a primal level, the viewer of the material becomes aware of this presence and the mind recoils in horror, the limbic system tries to wrest control of the body away, misfiring the fight-or-flight engine once or twice before giving up and settling down again leaving the viewer with either a confused boner or a deep sense of shame and regret.

And Nigel? Oh, Nigel. Nigel disappears into the night to consume the awkwardness of another poor soul.

The Big Bang one is probably the one that upsets me the most. The science geeks, god bless them, think they can convince unreasonable people with reasonable arguments when all they're doing is legitimizing an absurd idea by merely giving it the time of day.

This is almost always correct.  I would say the counter-example was the Nye/Ham debates, where Nye used Ham as an example of the ridiculous.  He gave him the time of day, but it wasn't a very good time for Ham...It wasn't so much a debate as a monologue delivered with a crazy person rambling in the background.

I guarantee you that not only does Ham think he "won" the debate, but that he and his followers believe that he handed Nye his ass.

In the meantime, he's become a household name.

Bill Nye isn't done losing my respect, though. My understanding is that he has also recently spent a lot of time with Monsanto scientists and is now ready to sing the virtues of commercial GMO crops, and is revising his book accordingly.

So my internet at home has shit the bed.

Complication: My ex is still paying for it. We have talked about this several times and he is convinced that he isn't, but HE IS.

I guess when you make that kind of money a little thing like accidentally paying your ex-wife's utilities for seven years is no biggie. However, the problem is that I can't GET THIS FIXED without him unless I tell Comcast that I'm moving to my house and need new service, in which case in a week and a half they will come out and charge me $50 to "hook up my service".

Acted human.

Yeah, I know.   :sad:

It's still like he just shat all over the future.  I've decided to hang on for 6 weeks, in order to get my revenge (Lillie has a history of this, I have discovered, and I hate her and I don't feel like being fair), and to see if the new boss we get is going to cut the mustard.  If there's no light at the end of the tunnel by then, I bail.

Maybe the new boss will be better than you anticipate.

I carry out 'altruistic acts' which make others feel good.

This makes me feel good.


I see no downside to this.

being altruistic is in everyones best interests. Karma law and such, plus if you're nice that person will be nicer and the whole world gets better.
