Re: Election

Now am I the only non- Atheist in here? Nope. Honestly, I'm surprised any Obama supporter fails to know that Obama is at least personally opposed to gay marriage based upon his religious beliefs. He's a very religious man, just look at his campaign. Many of his supporters I've spoken to support him...

Re: I just came back from 1912....

Ah, no. I think that's my screwdriver, don't worry, I got it... Unfortunately, I could only get to 2,000 years in your future from there. So if you could just like, bury it, that'd be cool (I assumed you'd buried it but... there was a lot of rubble...) What? Rubble? That doesn't sound good. After m...

Re: I just came back from 1912....

Um... something very bad may have just happened. My machine's backup capacitor just fell out and landed in the middle of some particle collider in the early XXIth. Was unable to retrieve it.

Re: "Impostor" Discussion

Would it be presumptuous of me to say that literary criticism is merely specialized analytical thinking? (Well, maybe "merely" is not the best word to be using in this rather touchy debate.) I would separate the ability to write literary criticism from the actual criticism itself - that is...
