The mom jeans company just released clear jeans.  I think someone there accidentally ordered way too much clear PVC and is just trying to get rid of it.

The problem I have with the "everyone carry a gun to solve crime" solution is this:

How does a cop tell the difference between the "asshole shooting at random people and now engaged in a gun fight with a hero" and the "hero engaged in a gunfight with an asshole"? or worse "the other hero with a gun that is now shooting at the first hero because he came late and thinks the first hero is the asshole."

If you are shooting in public, and not wearing a police uniform, you are making a confusing situation even worse.

This was weirdly quiet. The first I heard of it was my sister (who lives there) posting that she and her family where out of town and ok on facebook. Then I had to google Fresno to find out what she was talking about.

irk That one is a little too stimulating for my taste.  I had to mute it to keep myself from being distracted by the sounds of cars and birds from that good quality grass growing.

I would much rather he be an Atheist then his religion.  When your faith claims that being wealthy is a sign that god loves you, and conversely  being poor is a sign that you are a sinner, it does not bode well for the poor that you are dealing with.

monkwarrior Speaking the truth is easy.  Being accused (repeatedly) of being a liar when you consider yourself honest?  That is how blood feuds start.

I have friends that (rightly) were going to quit going to a restaurant because one of the managers accused them of lying about their takeout order missing an order of wings.

Accusing an astronaut of lying about going to the moon is several orders of magnitude larger, and his response is that of an honest man pushed to far.

I read that as /Last/ God Fearing, and I laughed.  Trump as a strong believer or an open Athiest as the next president, either seems unlikely to me.  :P

monkwarrior The first couple of times?  Sure.  But after well over 40 years?  This one guy comes up and thinks he is special.   He thinks that after 40 years that his magic book will prove once and for all that Buzz is speaking the truth. He is calling Buzz a liar thousands of times over.  

Worse, Buzz would know that his oath would mean nothing to this asshole. The video would be p

monkwarrior The implication of "swear on the bible this is true." is "you are a lying liar who has been lying to literally everyone for decades."  I am pretty sure that for anyone with a violent bone anywhere in their body, those are fighting words.

Paraphrasing a book I read recently:

The optimal number of conspirators is 2.  1 person isn't a conspiracy, just a guy (or girl) acting suspicious for no apparent reason.  Each additional person over 2 is an increased opportunity for someone to notice one of the conspirators acting oddly.  Then they must be be decieved/eliminated, or brought in on the conspiracy.  Which then increases the number of opportunities for people to notice the conspiracy.

In short, faking the moon landing is just too damn big.  You would have many people that were in on it directly speaking about their part in it.  You would have rocket scientists explaining how the nozzles on the rockets were the wrong size/shape.

It would be easier to fly a mission to the moon then to fake it.

The best analogy I can thing of is this:

Imagine if before the internet (Some of us can just remember this) the USPS would open and read all your mail.  Then after being amused about whatever magazine came in the blacked out bag, they stuff a coupon for <ewww, you are sick> in your birthday card from grandma.

In short, ISPs should be treated like the mail, and if they look at what we are doing they should be punished with the equivalent that the USPS would be.  Mail fraud maybe?

Butt chugging is not actually a thing that is common.  The couple of occasions where it actually happens (probably because of a drunken dare) just get blown out of proportion.

Whoever wrote this reversed the direction of the change several times.  Plus failed in the pc pronouns department.  :P  He is a him.  Also he should have been in the men's division.

Of course, this comes back to the bathroom problem.

DuckBoy87 Basically Republicans started playing the long game a while back.  They focused on winning state legislatures and goveners, so they could take control of the redistricting.  Then they could engage in some extremely weird (and obvious) gerrymandering.  This isn't to say they are the only ones doing it, just that from what I have seen they are the worst.
