  1. Don't you guys saddle me with your demented projections. I was simply so excited to see such wild sci-fi at that time that I spilled greasy buttery popcorn all over myself. Some people.
  2. Barbarella---I was 14 when it came out. Should have worn darker pants.
  3. I love the English. But then I love the Scots, the Welsh, and the Irish. Hell, I love the French. In some ways I make a lousy German.
  4. there's nothing new of significance about this world in terms of human behavior. people killing people for the same reasons. just in details of execution (no pun intended) what's significant is the advancement of tools to be used, where one or a few agents can wreak much greater damage than in the past, and the spread/usage of the "terrorist" tactics as people, and thus their issues, spread (population/contact/competition) and there is much more interaction/awareness (and therefore room for issues to expand) with others across the globe hitting the weakest and most vulnerable to strike fear and terror into the hearts of your enemy is an ancient tactic (many such events in most cultures over time), but there are also other new mass communication tools/mthods that with the current spread of civilization allow more effective and sophisticated psychological (emotional) manipulation of individuals and masses (sse advertising/propaganda). so you can get a lot more done with less resources (a primary tenet of guerilla warfare anywhere across time). these new tools work well for old purposes.
  5. What would you say to someone who reads this as "them" = Muslims? Does that reader have it right? Either way, would you elaborate?
  6. he was tagged as a likely dupe/troll a long time ago, but was trying to allow for diverse voices, see what happens, new meat, blah blah. than what often happens in such efforts is the discourse level gets lowered to the more stupid vein, consistently, and a large percentage of the member's posts become simply trolling or fail to sufficiently distinguish from trolling.
  7. heads up: that's a way to go, and often no prob if the context justifies it (staff call, we write about all of this in the rules) but also it's how you risk a rule 5 or 12 action, too. You got a good helping of likes, and I liked it for the easy lay-up it was, but you forgot to note your own partisan spin/hypocrite component on display here (no big) as you and others on the right fail to acknowledge that "the lefties" have almost universally denounced Griffin and the only blowback from them really has been at those on the right perceived as trying to over-milk it given their own past on this topic. As stated, for 8 years the obama stuff was historically vile and venal and vicious and violent and that's just the v's. And much of the right on TV and in here was generally quiet about it, or dismissive about it, and more than a few often defending much of it or even denying it was "a thing" (ala the "exaggerated nature of white > black racism in this country by the left and the blacks" dealio that is near and dear to certain posters in here and many palefaces around the country). As has been duly noted by me elsewhere, the same observation can be applied in lesser scale (still more than plenty of it) to hillary. And that stuff directed at her was generally ignored or dismissed/minimized (or even endorsed) by most gopers---many of them good conservative christians of course----because she's hillary. my first thought reading this yesterday was how mayne got a fairly successful troll out of you guys (but it would have had to be a topic anyway)
  8. one of my favorite all time lables was sheffield labs...niche outfit...all direct to disc recordings (google---quite an art/science)...their recordings are staples in all high-end audio demos...among the ultimate in sound quality and a lot of great performances, too...
  9. In Trumpland, we don't need your stinking information. We make our own.
  10. I'm starting another one on it. In each forum. Just to screw you over.
  11. cnn ac360 just had an interesting backstory on the competitive enterprise institute (climate-and-general science-denier club/think tank---backed mainly by individual secret donors <likely coal/mining interests>) and their influence on don...head dude ( knock-off albino version of wilbur ross) led transition epa staff, backed pruitt as anti-mmcc warrior to trump...blah blah...the world's greatest assemblage of semi-sapient turds with **** for brains in modern history continues...
  12. How much for the Megyn Kelly/Vladimir Putin scat tape? (too far?)
  13. Since one is a major Conservative Christian leader and the other is a damned sexual deviant, I sure hope you see the moral and spiritual differences between the two.
