  1. year in review

    Was cured of cc.com by the unrelenting disingenuous turpitude of the biggest asshole I've encountered anywhere, online or in person, Tvash. Thanks.
  2. Flu Vaccines

    I took a 3,500-mile motorcycle trip in September and stopped in the family cemetery. Looked at the headstones where my Greatgrandad(x3), Greatgrandad(x4) and Greatgrandma(x4) all died within a month of each other from a flu outbreak in 1847.
  3. ATTENTION BIRTHERS!

    Date: Wednesday, November 11, 2009, 4:47 PM Subject: Supreme Court now has Obama Citizenship AP- WASHINGTON D.C. - In a move certain to fuel the debate over Obama's qualifications for the presidency, the group Americans for Freedom of Information has Released copies of President Obama's college transcripts from Occidental College Released today, the transcript indicates that Obama, under the name Barry Soetoro, received financial aid as a foreign student from Indonesia as an undergraduate at the school. The transcript was released by Occidental College in compliance with a court order in a suit brought by the group in the Superior Court of California. The transcript shows that Obama (Soetoro) applied for financial aid and was awarded a fellowship for foreign students from the Fulbright Foundation Scholarship program. To qualify, for the scholarship, a student must claim foreign citizenship. This document would seem to provide the smoking gun that many of Obama's detractors have been seeking. Along with the evidence that he was first born in Kenya and there is no record of him ever applying for US citizenship, this is looking pretty grim. The news has created a firestorm at the White House as the release casts increasing doubt about Obama's legitimacy and qualification to serve as president. When reached for comment in London , where he has been in meetings with British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Obama smiled but refused comment on the issue. Britain 's Daily Mail also carried the story in a front-page article titled, Obama Eligibility Questioned leading some to speculate that the story may overshadow economic issues on Obama's first official visit to the U.K. In a related matter, under growing pressure from several groups, Justice Antonin Scalia announced that the Supreme Court agreed on Tuesday to hear arguments concerning Obama's legal eligibility to serve as President in a case brought by Leo Donofrio of New Jersey . This lawsuit claims Obama's dual citizenship disqualified him from serving as president. Donofrio's case is just one of 18 suits brought by citizens demanding proof of Obama's citizenship or qualification to serve as president. Gary Kreep of the United States Justice Foundation has released the results of their investigation of Obama's campaign spending. This study estimates that Obama has spent upwards of $950,000 in campaign funds in the past year with eleven law firms in 12 states for legal resources to block disclosure of any of his personal records. Mr. Kreep indicated that the investigation is still ongoing but that the final report will be provided to the U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder. Mr. Holder has refused to comment on the matter.

    "Don't worry too much about it. Everybody's born to fuck-up, sometimes. Just try not to make it your job."
  7. Beacon Rock Thread

    an **administrator's-pork-belly-kiss gif** is more appropriate.
  8. Fear Mongering

    No, it's called a "Freudian slip".
  9. Fear Mongering

    No, in your case is: why did white trash boy cross the road? So he could attempt to experience a huge, but controlled, 15-foot whipper.

    Bacon ice cream.

    Just the opposite: smearing is kosher, coating is for the unchosen.

  14. Theological Signficance of the Jewel Wasp.

    Your original challenge seemed to infer that the habits of the Jewel Wasp should be repugnant to a "God". IOW, their habits would be considered Bad to a normal God. My post questions - by whose standard? If God must be Good in accordance with the whims of belief of all people, if all peoples' notion of Good were accounted for (including those with values in direct opposition to others), Good being contrary to Bad, then, God will also be Bad in one regard nearly as often as God is Good by another. Your lab-mate-from-India's reckoning of implausibility due to linear time constraint, failed to consider Omnipotence in a nontemporal realm, part of God's 'hood, which has always included the complete, unabridged, Unifying Theory, including one dimension w/o Time, minimally. easy
  15. trip reports VS a regular climbing day

    Hey, goddammit, I want to read a TR about this.
  16. Theological Signficance of the Jewel Wasp.

    A fundamental marker of a most base elementary definition/notion for "God" is that God must meet the constraint of a person's determination of Good, let alone that of one culture. If God must meet all of almost 7 billion persons belief of Good, wouldn't that pretty much cover all notions of Bad, as well. Oh, I almost spilled the Patchouli... that'd be bad. or, would it?
  17. MENTAL RETARDATION IN MALES

    The report could have simply stated, "because they have penises." Do I remember correctly/accurately that all human embryos begin essentially female, but males are derived by hormone introduction?

    unless you think there is always someone just outside your sight and hearing that has designs to steal your stacks of saved Nat Geographics and newspapers.

  20. Lazy Sod

    Though Tutsi men are taller than average, I doubt high jumping over eight feet was anything but legend. I'm dubious of the probable use of speculated scale and distance to determine anything as accurate as "2.52 meters" (8'-3 3/16").
  21. thanks W

    No shit, brah. What is the perceived problem here? This reefer is better stocked than, at times, my family's and I never thought of us as poor or poverty-stricken. So, what's the perceived problem?
  22. The Warning

    Who is being quoted here? They don't appear to be familiar with the markets labeling the CFTC as "obscure".

  24. CC.com Dance Party!

    The lead singer forgets his part (lip-sync) at the very beginning of the tune. Lip-syncing was pretty common on tele shows back then. [video:youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXObWIMX8sY
  25. Half-Off Sale at Greenlake....

    If one is sincere in an expectation of buying a home, eventually, aren't the two conjoined in the best of outcomes? If one speculates that the market is near low ebb, and further that the price of a home today that goes for $300K may inflate to $400k in three years, your 20% down increase of $20k (as well as net increase of required six-months payments banked, rent payments, etc.) is as steep a price to pay for very conservative parameters as penalties often associated with higher risk. But, I understand. We serve ourselves best when we are diligent to act in a manner that serves our peace.
