They have saved a ton of money over the years by eating things that aren't really food and eschewing avocado bread. Compounding such savings over hundreds of years really makes a difference.

A sklansky-esque theory: People from the UK with a beer in front of them who don't make a comment or joke about the head are not quite as common as unicorns.

After I write a memo to record what was said in my meeting with the President I always write a follow-up memo to record what I said in my first memo.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

I've always wondered why people assert their 5th amendment rights. If they want to assert their right to remain silent, why are they still talking?

I'm hugely in favor of the PTB footer, even more now that it tilts Howard.

Indeed it is. The IRA did their best to trash it in 1983, killing 6 and injuring 90. My mother and sister were in the vicinity at the time, Christmas shopping, and it freaked my sister right out LOL.

Names are not always what they seem. The common Welsh name Bzjxxlwcp is pronounced Jackson. - Mark Twain (from the book Following the Equator)

We called him Barney for short. We couldn't use his real name. There wasn't time. -Ibid

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

Almost ready to purpose a censorship and right thinking panel composed of Six Berkeley Bolsheviks, Six crusading Journalists, Six visionaries and six random philosophers. You will have to submit all questions you want to ask and have them vetted before posting in SMP. In addition, guidance will be given as to the right questions to ask and how they must be phrased. Only proper answers to said questions are allowed and only the required proper thoughts to be thinking during this entire process will be allowed. And finally, a forced reeducation camp for those who refuse to comply and adhered to all the committee's promulgated laws of what is the absolute right and proper and moral and ethical way of thinking.

Just need input on where the reeducation Gulag should be located.

I will be holding daily press briefings as an unofficial white house spokesperson at large. All questions will be answered with the assistance of my highly trusted magic 8-ball.

Have been looking into beer. Surprised how much my local store has to offer.

One beer a day keeps the doctor away.

Interesting that this information came up just as I was reading the section in the Churchill book about the very contentious events leading up to granting home rule for Ireland in the early 1920's. Winston had a hand in this adventurous political turmoil. If you brits had started an early sterilization program on the Irish, much bloodshed and overall ill will could have been avoid. And the world would be rid of the Irish. Some would think this an overall plus for humanity. I have no personal comment.

We breed fast enough that a sterilization program would bankrupt the world. Plus, the Scots would move in and become Irish, as they are apt to do.

Re: SMP Life is Being Drunk -Random Content thread

I spend far too much time watching short films, but this one is good:



Shout out to BruceZ who spent a month trying to explain to me how to post a youtube video here whilst not suspecting that I was just ****ing around pretending that the concept of posting a video was beyond my capabilities.
