Re: Orange is the new President

...Damn. I just wonder how many idiots still fall for this. About 40% of those polled. How many of them fall for it and how many are just Never Admit Weakness to Team Blue, all the while getting angrier at him? I really wonder. We might have to wait for the recession to see (if it makes it before t...

Fair point Eric. I've edited my posts.

All I can say is that reading about children in concentration camps sends me to a dark place.
Likewise. I just don't want your life to join the list of people"s lives fucked over with, so far, impunity.

Re: Orange is the new President

Maybe I'll remember what it means now . Today, I learned a new word. I doubt Trump did. Even if his aides explained it to him afterwards. And BoJo explaining it in context . If anything, it probably embarrassed Trump and made him feel resentful, unless the guy managed to successfully lull Trump into...

Athleisure used for humor is funny.

As an actual portmanteau it can fuck off with that.
It's the clunkiest one I've heard in a long time, and "Thanks, ants. Thants." can still make me giggle.

I'd like to dream that this forum can start going longer between people saying contemptible things in response to criticism of the right. You'd think that the fact we're talking white supremacists and their mouthpieces would change anything, but I guess not. :/

I really, really hate "stan" used to mean "be a big fan of." Like, "oh, her new single is amazing, I totally stan her now!" Because it comes from the Eminem song "Stan" wherein the eponymous narrator KILLS HIS PREGNANT GIRLFRIEND. Why do you want to associate with someone like that? It just gives m...

Something I never much thought about before, until looking at a map: I live in a suburb of Atlanta, in America's Eastern Time Zone (though in the westernmost part of that zone), and the entire continent of South America is due east of me. Well, huh. I thought that one bump in Peru's reached over th...

Alright Oxford comma bitches, read this sentence, “The jet's passengers included Prince Andrew, a millionaire, and a paedophile.”

Pop quiz, how many people are being referred to?
Three. Otherwise it'd be written different.

Serial commas forever.

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

I don't think it takes a particularly conservative viewpoint to be skeptical of the motivations behind the NYT running a series about how America was Really and Truly founded on slavery. Does anyone actually believe it's going to be a scholarly, dispassionate inquiry? It doesn't take a rocket surge...
