    What is it with people who sign their posts, comments etc.? Are people really this self important, or do they not realize that their youtube/huffpost/reddit/username is directly to the left of the political rant/racial slur/mean spirited insult they just shared with the rest of the world? What the fuck?

    When I make a really controversial post that gets the people stirred up, I sign it with my true-life name ain't afraid to stand up for my views. (My real-life name is Colt Heeuvenhuis. I am a Dutchman with views.)

    1. No it wasn't. It was a lazy, cliched piece of shit.

    2. No he's not. Agreeing with the premise of a shitty joke doesn't make the premise any more correct nor the joke any less shitty.

    3. An ellipsis has three dots, not several thousand.

    So what you appear to be saying is that you didn't like it as much as I did. I think I can understand that.

    I can see where you might be a real byrrh in the side of your local city council during meetings open to the public.(you have strong opinions you are not shy in expressing)

    Takes slightly more effort to come up with a halfway decent joke. Better luck next time.

    So you are saying it wasn't even halfway decent? You really are a man of stern opinions, Colt. (Don't take guff off of anyone)

    Now, I don't want to use phrases like "plagiarism" or "copyright law" or "set your house on fire in the middle of the night" but I think we are headed in that general direction.

    Wintry mix = deliberately ambiguous weather condition favored by L'Incandescent. (known shilly shallier)

    Polar Vortex = No apologies given menacing weather gauntlet favored by Colt. (clear eyed, brook no nonsense man of action)

    plus, they're crazy. case in point.

    At some point during out courtship the now-Mrs. hands me a short stack of papers showing the readings from her astrology charts. The common theme involves 'mystery' and 'change'. So after moving in together I start hiding the toilet paper in random places, and then she starts getting upset at me. wtf.

    To get this thread back on the rails: I don't get why so many of my friends with daughters who are Girl Scouts are pimping Girl Scout Cookies on Facebook. It's explicitly against the entire point of having the girls sell the cookies.

    I agree with your point but I think parents selling the cookies as much or more than the daughters has been going on for some time. We had an annual cookie sale in high school for the band. It always seemed to me the top three sales winners always should have had the prize go to their parents.
