Re: No touching! - sexual impropriety thread

I see your point about Franken and incentives, but as a dude working in academia there's no goddamn way I'm making that argument. If women want to make it, go for it. Hang on, because I'm not sure I understand. Am I to assume that you won't make an argument on a fairly obscure libertarian forum bec...

Re: Inequality

On the other hand, although money will not enable you to buy your way out of the human condition, it certainly can help make yourself more comfortable as you stand in line waiting to die.

Re: the list of those things which are not food

Mary's nephew was selling krispy kreme for some school group he's in. We bought a dozen glazed and they arrived today. I ate one. It was a disgusting amalgamation of sucrose, fat, and starch. No actual flavor, just dopamine triggers. And now I want another one. These things aren't food they're culi...

Reading something, it strikes me that the very people who most object to elected judges are the same ones who get the most indignant at the idea of someone avoiding jury duty.

Re: To caffeinate or not to caffeinate

For the record, I take a 5-Hour Energy Shot Extra when I get up, followed by four to five cups of coffee interspersed with Hydroxycut (situation dependent). I'm afraid caffeine and nicotine are my two favorite alkaloids ever. Holy shit. Are you able to vibrate into different dimensions? Not yet, bu...

Re: To caffeinate or not to caffeinate

But beware the bazillion percent increase in caffeine under a cold brew situation. Really? I have got to try that then. How long does it take?

It occurs to me that the last couple of times I've had a beer with Sandy, it's been fairly close to a major Masonic temple.
In my experience, drinking almost always can be found in the vicinity of Masonic lodges and temples.

Re: Good Cover Versions

A reference to Kraftwerk in another thread reminded me of this cover I first heard when returning to Athens for college (never made time to see the band live, though).



Apologies if I have posted this before.
