Re: Language fleeting thoughts

I just realized when someone says "Target neutralized", the original idea may have effectively come from the process of neutralizing an acid. Cool.

Re: 1761: "Blame"

Racism (and misogyny and ableism and Islamophobia) may not have been the reason they voted for him, but they all saw those things and they all decided they were okay enough with those things to vote for him anyway. As I've said before (which came from someone else originally), if you choose a racis...

Re: 1761: "Blame"

Also, you kind of are defending voting for him, in that you're arguing that people who voted for him can still be perfectly decent human beings. I'm kind of curious. Are you in any ways actually interested in understanding why people voted for Trump or do you just wish to paint them all with the no...

Re: Science fleeting thoughts

Solidarity is important. However, there are lesser states that can still possibly be acceptable. Like liquidarity or gasiarity. Not sure if plasmiarity counts, though people do get really excited about it.

Re: 1761: "Blame"

/notgramaticallycorrect I think this is funny. My opinion on it is that almost every facet of media everywhere railed to get Hillary elected instead of Trump, but more importantly a large amount of media effort caused a blackout of Sanders. Hillary is a scumbag (likely a murderer) and people voted f...

Why was phosphorus worried?

Because sulfur and chlorine argon.

You may now proceed to boo and hiss at me.

In the same vein of humor as why 6 was afraid of 7 (because 7 8 9).

See, the problem is also that it's subjective on what is a good sandwich?

I prefer peppered turkey, swiss cheese, and... pickles in between two slices of whole wheat bread but that's not necessarily the definition of a good sandwich.

Assumption: The stick is sturdy (not unreasonable as it's securing a boat)

Tie the goat to the stick in the ground.

Take the wolf across
Take the cabbage across
Untie the goat and take the goat across
