“Dutch Courage: Alcohol Improves Foreign Language Skills”

Quote
A new study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, conducted by researchers from the University of Liverpool, Maastricht University and King’s College London, shows that bilingual speakers’ ability to speak a second language is improved after they have consumed a low dose of alcohol.

Here’s the link: http://neurosciencenews.com/alcohol-foreign-language-skills-7759/

So, my belief that my ability to speak French improves after a glass of pinot noir may actually be true!

A vampire horror movie or novel using only unconvemtional vampire traits and no standard ones. ie. They sparkle in sunlight (Twlight), they live in hives (Priest), they feed not on blood itself but on the color red (Adventure Time), there's a thunderclap whenever they finish counting something (Sesame Street), but no garlic vulnerability, no lack of reflection, etc.
They glow in the dark, have only one nostril, their feet are on backwards, and they can only prey upon blood relations?

It's guns, gas and gods, not gators, geckos and gerbils.

I thought Mad Max: Furry Road was a typo.

I hate everything and I want to die.

Another Prophet Profiteer Not Accepted in His Own Country

“Disgraced evangelist Jim Bakker warns critics they will face God’s wrath for making fun of him”

Quote
In video captured by Right Wing Watch, disgraced evangelist Jim Bakker raged at his critics saying, they will face the wrath of God for mocking his End Time warnings and making fun of him throughout his checkered career.

Not mentioning his time in the wilderness, after he spent time in prison after bilking his followers out of $158 million, Bakker boasted that he has made many predictions — including 9/11 — that have come true, and that he is not being treated like the prophet he is.

“When God says something to you, you don’t always know the exact time it’s going to happen,” Bakker thundered. “[So] stop beating up the prophets because God says, ‘Woe unto you when you beat up on the prophets.’”

Bakker then threatened damnation on those who have ridiculed him over the years.

So, I guess that means woe unto me. Again.

How is cryptocurrency not fiat currency?

Many have a limited supply, so they can't print more.

Counterfeiting is pretty much impossible, or very cost prohibitive at the least

My ass has a limited supply, so they can't print more.

Yet I cannot use my poop as money.  It seems unfair.

haha it does seem unfair :P

Really the only thing that gives anything value is that people agree it is valuable. This is true of Fiat, Gold, Diamonds, Bitcoin, etc.

Or, you know, actual value. For example potable water on an island is very valuable. You can choose not to agree, but only one of us will die of dehydration.

"Value" is very situational and can change very quickly with an event or two. Yet paradoxically, Bitcoin will always remain worthless.

"Björk accuses Lars von Trier of sex chickens"
"Björk and von Trier were the rapids in film recordings, says von Trier. He denies sexual harassment."
"It has not been the case. But that we were smoking unfriends, that's a fact."
"On the other hand, she delivered one of the greatest performances in my movies at all," he says.
"I therefore receive this with open mouth and polyps."

I'm pretty sure this is actually song lyrics. It's classic Björk.

Back on topic, I jut realized Cain created this in 2008 lol

It was pinned so I thought it was at the top, being a newer post, woops.

I came back here looking for folks like Bella, Acoge and TGGR.

I forgot about Faust and Cain, and it is nice to see at least Faust still around.

My site died long ago, and I mainly use Facebook now if I want to talk politics. I like that on Facebook the people I talk to are people I know, using real names/pictures, as I feel they are usually more genuine. But lately, I have been missing some of the old forums like these, so I have been looking around to see what is still out there.

Bella discovered pot, IIRC, nbbody's seen Acoge in 6 years or more, and TGRR died of arrogance and we pushed him into a rubbish tip.  He was a cunt, and nobody here misses him.  He still owed me like $50 when he died, so I'm stealing the asshole's headstone.
