Some of you here really surprise me and disappoint me.  There have been countless other threads about famous people dying.  Not once did I go into those threads making off the cuff comments or turning it into a debate of some kind.

I simply liked this actress.  That is all.  I was really sad to hear about this.  I just finished watching The Parent Trap with my kids a little over a week ago.  I was just looking to share my thoughts and take some comfort in the thoughts of others who may feel the same way.  It's that simple.  It you really never heard of the person or have nothing to say just stay out of the thread.  Is that too hard to do?

 

It's the internet.

Actually, it's the Internet.

I use Dr. Bronner's liquid peppermint soap as a bodywash, it's cheap compared to a lot of other options and a bigger bottle of it lasts me seemingly forever.

I was sure I was the only one. Been using it for a couple of decades. I use lavender, however, because that's what my wife prefers. We tried the peppermint, but it was actually too cooling for us.

Bronner's is involved in a big lawsuit at the moment, against some companies that are dubiously claiming their products are 'green'.

If you are in jail for breaking the law, why should you get out just because the law changes? You still broke a law, and breaking a law means you should be punished.

As a PDA, it's ok. As a phone, it's pretty bad.

It's just very cumbersome. Whenever I talk, I guess my face opens up random applications via the touchscreen.

I made 4 gallons back in October from fresh pressed cider. I just used a liquid ale yeast. Drank what I didn't give away in a couple of months, and it was good. Dry, as always. I've never added any sugar.

Last weekend while making some mead, I found a carboy full of dandelion wine that I made at least 5 years ago and had forgotten about. Still had an airlock in it, but the rubber stopper was decomposed. I think I'll eventually taste it.

Quote from: PeteRock on February 05, 2009, 08:40:01 PM

A great number of competitive, amateur players would strongly disagree with your stance, as would the WPA.  Monopoly is "just a game."  Pool is a recognized sport.
If you can't pull a groin in it, it's not a sport. It's a game. It's a game where you take a stick and you poke a ball on a table.
Quote
Your oversimplification certainly trivializes the sport.  Such as describing wrestling as "one man grabbing another man's genitals", or football as "overgrown men prancing around a grassy field".  You know as well as I that your oversimplification was intentional and petty, not at all meant to make an accurate description of the game.  And it only continues to undermine your perspective further.
No, that is an accurate description of the game, and it's hilarious that you're so worried about image that you're arguing this point. The cue is what? It's a stick dude. Take a look at them. Even if they're carbon fiber or whatever, they're still just a stick. The balls are... well, balls.
Quote
Regardless of image, "poking balls with sticks" does not a game of pool make.
No, it doesn't. Pool is always about poking balls with a stick, but poking balls with a stick is not always pool. It's like an apple is always fruit, but fruit is not always an apple, if that concept is difficult. Sometimes it's 9-ball or snooker. Other times it's just poking a ball with a stick.
Quote
But rather than concede that while playing pool on unregulated materials can be fun yet still conflicts with standard pool rules and regulations, you instead oversimplify the sport in order to make a fickle attempt at undermining my own point of view through petty, inaccurate discriptions of a recognized sport.
This is where that whole agree to disagree thing I proposed earlier should come into play. You say I oversimplify the "sport" (lol), I say you overcomplicate it. I don't care about undermining your view. You can view it however you want. It's still a stone cold fact that pool requires you to poke at balls with a stick.

But I guess if you're going down, what better way than in a blaze of misunderstood glory.

I don't really go for the US 'good' beers, because I think they all tend to taste very similar, and aren't that great, but I did try some Snake River IPA (on tap, if that matters) at my brother's bar, and it was quite good.  Gellar and durwood had been bugging me to try IPAs.  I've tried a few more since (O'Dell's, Pyramid Thunderhead), and so far I've only really liked the one, but it was good!

I like IPA's when it's the middle of summer and my A/C is working nonstop just to keep my apartment at 80 degrees. I can only drink 1 or 2 at a time though, so I tend to only drink one when I get home from work and maybe another one after dinner or something to cool off.

Can't stand Bud at all. I don't hate American Lagers, just don't think Bud is a good one. I actually prefer Rainier when I drink that kind of beer. Often in tomato juice.

My favorite beer styles are probably pale ales, bitters, and porters. I just built a kegerator and have been buying ponys from a local brewpub. They have a team of 3, and I think one of them stands around a lot. If you really like beer, consider getting a kegerator. It really makes a huge difference.

I see you don't really understand veganism. That's ok. Veganism isn't just about eating. So you must think the others were horrible analogies also, because a Muslim message wouldn't keep a Christian from being a Christian.

So do you think the same thing about every preacher on Sunday morning?

Not sure how a preacher speaking to an audience who has decided to come see him is the same thing.  But you weren't looking for a constructive response anyway were you?

Looking?  Yes.  Expecting?  No, considering the respondent.  The audience doesn't make any difference in your pithy statement above.  So, again, how is this different than your normal Sunday morning preacher or the countless "Jesus Saves" signs you see on billboards?  Or is it (as we all suspect) really just the message you disagree with and not the delivery mechanism?

So wound around the axle.  Billboards are different than a preacher no?  Does that make sense to you?

If you said 'what about Jesus saves billboards' instead of something that makes no logical sense whatsoever, perhaps the discussion could have continued.  Here let me try:

If you don't like preachers, what must you think of chapstick?

So your post about becoming fools was directed at the ads themselves, not the people behind them?

Meridian 59? I don't think Vic is saying it hasn't been done before, but that it is a silly premise for a patent.

So?  Patent applications can't be rejected simply because they're "silly".

I must have misunderstood. I thought the patent Vic referenced wasn't rejected.

With the number of speeches and talks Presidents give, it's not difficult to cherry pick out gaffes and missteps. Even Clinton, as great a speaker as he was, had his fair share.

That being said, Bush was one of the poorest orators that I've ever witnessed in my lifetime. I literally cringed every time he talked.

It always goes back to Clinton for you guys. Maybe you should start a Clinton: The Greatest Hits thread. There should be twice the Greatness, now  icon_biggrin
