How do they know it to be right?  Where does that knowledge come from?

Atheists are smart. We don't need a book or someones interpretation of a book to determine right and wrong. Otherwise we would think it's ok to stone a woman because she was raped. I know it's amazing but the prison system isn't full of atheists.

You know that there are people including democrats that won't vote for someone like Obama.
Now I'm really not liking the implication here. Are you calling me racist?

Please, that could mean a number of things.

Anyway, I always figured you were playing devil's advocate just to break up the left love fest gaming forums tend to be.

On this whole video thing, its a non story to me, I could find videos of people who support Obama saying stuff just as offensive, there are idiots who support candidates in every election, nothing new to see here.

Please do. But just like every time you say you will back up your posts, you never will. Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

I don't care as long as the advertisements don't go the way of the anti Obama type. The one I saw last night was about Obama, but not over the top ("Obama Finished?") which took you to a poll about who you were voting for. Knowing who Newsmax is though, I wouldn't be surprised if they got to be a little more attacking.

Digital Blasphemy recently went through this. He had generic ads that he didn't pick and some of them were political. People were quitting the site over it and I believe he switched to someone who wouldn't do political ads.

I noticed that one of the ads GT has running is for Newsmax.com. A conservative website masquerading as a news site. Does this mean GT supports the site or it's a random ad that popped up?

Congress votes according to their constituents?! Tongue

Crux was right, the Republicans got on TV and said they didn't vote for it because of Pelosi's speech. Then they voted for it when they added a few billions worth of pork to it. Whether you agree with the bill or not, to me it shows what a joke our congress is.

I was really considering voting for McCain, but for him to pick Palin showed a a total lack of judgement. Not surprising for a conservative, just another bad decision to add to the list.

Not sure why you had to throw in the little insult there Brett.

He went to his house as part of political even put on for him there with at least one other politician, not as a one on one session. I am not worried about it. This is simply an attack by the right because they are desperate for things to make Obama look bad.

Quote
Ayers remains on the Board of Directors of the Woods Fund of Chicago[31] Washington said it was "ridiculous to suggest there's anything inappropriate" about the two men serving on the foundation board.[1]
Whether it is appropriate or not is the question people have to ask themselves. What it does is show ties between Obama and someone who has admitted to bombing United States targets.

So if two people serve on a board, of a charitable group, it means they have some sort of relationship that a voter needs to be concerned about? I don't understand how this should reflect badly on Obama at all. I am certainly not friends with everyone I work closely with on a daily basis. Why should it reflect badly on Obama that someone who supports him has a bad history but is now a community leader?

Another reason rice is popular in American lagers is that it is cheaper than barley malt.

Do all the big guys use it? I always thought it was a Bud thing.

Speaking of AB, how is ShockTop? I have never tried it.

My beer-fu is weak.  I cede the stage. 

I am sure you are right, there isn't any rice in it. All-malt would assume the malt=barley.

One thing about American Ale, I would highly recommend it to my Bud friends. Gets them down the road to beers with a bit more flavor and eventually you could turn them on to some of the good stuff. It's a good gateway beer.

The milling video states that it's an "all-malt brew."

Rice-malt. smile

I can't find anything that says it has rice or doesn't. I do think it has a similar finish to Bud Lager, but that is either just me, or something else they do in the process.

Quote from: Lee on October 01, 2008, 10:31:37 PM

I strongly disagree. While it is drinkable compared to the rest of the stuff they call beer, it is still quite weak flavored and has this Budweiser like after taste that I didn't like it all (maybe from the rice?). It tastes like a water downed amber to me. I would buy it only if my choices were it or Bud. For that price ($7 here) I expect a lot more from a beer.

I'd be surprised if it contained rice or corn. Have you seen an ingredient list?

Ale

No, but Budweiser uses rice in their other beers, why would this be different? It has a similar taste to Bud I think.

Sambo is that ANYWHERE, Jeff.

But that article is pretty pathetic. It may be true, but when the source is "Lucille, a waitress that served Sarah Palin," I have my doubts.

Yeah, I am not buying that at all.

I actually think Palin will do ok tomorrow, my bigger concern is that Biden is going to screw up really bad. I don't have a lot of confidence in him. I think he's going to be a little cocky and will be more prone to stick his foot in his mouth. While Palin has an idea what the questions will be and has been informed on the correct answer the last couple of days.

I quite liked the Michelob pack. I don't know if any of them stand up to a good import or micro, but I enjoyed them. The porter was quite tasty and probably my favorite of the 4. I wouldn't hesitate to buy any of the beers if I couldn't find one my ole standards.

Some of you, (YK, here, and senior R senators there) have come out and publicly acknowledged that she's clueless, and I admire that.

I'm typically pretty partisan, but I want to be able to argue my side with facts as well as conviction. At this point, you have to have your head stuck in the sand to not see the problems with Palin.

"All of 'em, any of 'em."

Not only is she an idiot, she's defensive too. After the exchange above she tried to say that Couric was implying that Alaska is sheltered and that they get all the same magazines and papers the rest of us do.

And who the f*** is she to be making Biden is old jokes? She really is completely clueless.

I don't see what you are talking about wonderpug.

The last post button does close enough to what I want, it's just all the way over on the right hand side of the screen.

Literally every forum I goto has a little button right in front of a thread title that jumps you down to the last unread posts in that thread. The closest thing I can find to that here is the Last Post button, but it's an awkward place.

For instance go to Qt3. Click on the "Games forum." Now there is a little down arrow button in front of every thread title that takes you to the newest posts in that thread.

This really isn't a big deal but now I just want to understand what you guys are talking about and vice versa.

I love Ramsey, Kitchen Nightmares UK, and The F Word. I've tried watching the Fox version of Nightmares but can't do it, it's pretty awful compared to the original.

I would like the F-Word a whole lot better if he wasn't trying so damned hard to act like he is famous on it. I realize he is famous, but the quaint little sit downs with his actor guests just seems like he is trying to hard.

I haven't seen any new Nightmares on BBC for a long time, I wonder if he quit doing it or if they stopped showing new episodes here due to the Fox show.

Edit: ahh, but that isn't what I am talking about. When I click on on a thread title and the one new post is on the bottom of the page I have to scroll down to it (a pain w/o a mouse or an "end" button on your keyboard). The Last Post button opens the thread and scrolls down to the newest post in the thread.

"Oh, your name is Jonas? Are you, perhaps... one of the Jonas Brothers??! Heehaw! I am hilarious and original at the same time!" x 100 people.  mad

isnt there a song "My name is Jonas" by Weezer?

Sure is, and not a bad song to boot! But I wouldn't put Weezer quite in the same category as the Jonas Brothers.

Hmm, I thought you were saying your real name was Jonas Weezer.

Just an idea, but have you guys ever thought about moving the "last post" button to the left closer to the thread title (like OO, Qt3, etc). All the way over on the right is just too far out of the way for me to use it like I do on other forums, especially when using a laptop without a mouse.

No big deal either way, just thought I would throw it out there.
2319  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Kitchen Nightmares on: September 29, 2008, 03:31:02 PM
The Black Pearl, the seafood place that was on last Thursday is getting bad reviews as recently as August (I believe the show was filmed months ago). And the obnoxious owner was back according to user reviews.

I bet all the restaurants got a nice boost from the TV show that helped keep them around. I think Fox overplays the changes he makes and how successful they are afterwards. Like someone else said, if the chef couldn't cook before, he's not suddenly going to get better as soon as Ramsay leaves. The places that seem to do well on the UK show seem to have good people in place before hand, or they replace the people who aren't.
