Re: States-ism

I want fewer voters, not more. Like maybe no votes for employees of any level of government. Or require that voters had to be born in the lower 48 and all parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents were US citizens (tough luck for you, McCain and George Romney!). I'm willing to hear other creati...

Re: States-ism

There's no room for more states. In fact we've got too many now. We need to get rid of some. I propose redrawing the state lines as shown below. Alaska is still Alaska. Hawaii can be part of ISLAND state, we can throw Porto Rico, Guam, The Virgin Islands, whatever, in with it.

Holy crap. I did not see Kim going to the dark side until the moment she planted that one on Jimmy. Totally buy it. Completely fits the story thus far. Explains a lot actually. But it begs the question, if Kim is wearing the ring of power, where does she go? Prison?

Everybody was cheating the system, nobody got punished, and nobody really suffered. Something like 850,000 families lost their homes.

I've never understood "bromance" to be implying the dudes are actually gay for each other (or even subconsciously gay for each other). It is a bit of a mocking term, or just a term to imply "look how unusual that is!" -- which does underscore the fact that it's seen as a bit weird for two dudes to ...

I really like the size of the baskets. They're not full width, but if they were they wouldn't pull out all the way for the door jam. And there's room for large boxes and jars along side. What's great is they're exactly full depth, they go back all the way to the wall. That was the thing about these ...

It's true though. Heterosexual guys use to be able to form deep friendships that isn't really possible anymore.
