Ah - those are the St Louis criminals, right? Brandishing deadly weapons against unarmed civilians would make it fair game to take them out, so yes, that be good.

Re: End of bitcoin?

Re: Random Republican WINGNUTS (or RRWs as they are affectionately known as)

So the NRA/GOP have things to celebrate! We’ve had 260 mass shootings through Wednesday (an estimated 8,600 gun violence deaths in the US year to date), which is a new high. Remember, the sole and singular purpose of automatic rifles is to kill people efficiently. So, it would be asinine to support ...

Re: The Best Beer on Earth

One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I don’t know. Then we tried to remove the tusks. The tusks. That’s not so easy to say. Tusks. You try it some time. As I say, we tried to remove the tusks. But they were embedded so firmly we couldn’t budge them. Of course, in A...

Re: The Best Beer on Earth

Your Honour, if we look at Court transcriptions I believe that we will find that my honorable friend has on numerous occasions used Dr Goebbels as the ultimate source for all matters of propaganda.  So naturally my curiosity was piqued.  You've got a point there. That will be noted in the records. ...

I didn’t realize (or had thoroughly forgotten) that Goebbels was the last Reichskanzler.

I don’t think a horde of cicadas sounds right. Swarm is better. A plague of cicadas would not be inappropriate.

Re: News from the 'Border'

I think the UK spokesperson was a bit long winded. He should simply have said “The protocol was an agreement entered into by Mr Johnson. He obviously did not intend for England to live up to it.”

Re: What is democracy?

Albeit plausible, I don’t find it amusing in the slightest. But as a practical matter, it would probably only speed things up by a year or two. As Republican controlled states eliminate voting rights for Democrats, or just outright override the vote altogether if it goes against them, I see relative...

Noah was only doing his job in the face of adversity and those unbelievers .. it would be a mammoth task to get the Leviathan (Job 40) on board.
