Quick, Everyone Act Smart

As most of you guys know, I've applied for another job here in town.  Long story short, they'll run across this site while seeing if I've been posting on newsgroups trying overthrow my local alderman, or perhaps running a website devoted to dressing cats up like superheroes.  So, if you guys have ran across the site, Hi.  If you are curious about why the heck this site even exists, well, we don't know.  Most of us went to Bellarmine where we'd post funny stories and links on the public folders of the exchange server.  Good times really.  But sadly, real life has called and our Bellarmine accounts have expired. 

So, with us being a group of complete nerds, I did the obvious thing:  create a website so we could make fun of each other.  The site itself is ASP.NET with a SQL Server backend for the posts and the comments that go with them.  It's pure CSS for the layout, and assuming the terrible webhost isn't having trouble with the piece of string that they've got ran between the webserver and SQL Server, it runs pretty quick.  So there you go.

As for everybody else, act smart.

I tweaked some code and got ride of most of the front page's crap too. Why I decided 10 posts would make sence, well, I have no idea. So anyways, the main page should load faster for those on dialup. As for the other pages, I'll try to keep them below 150 posts with bigger and better content.

Dave on Monday, July 05, 2004 at 8:19 PM

In the true spirit of democracy I think we should hold a contest for "renaming" the NattySci webpage heading. While Phil usually comes up with clever names and ideas, "Here Comes The Science" really doean't do the page any justice. So this post goes out for any good ideas for a new slogan.

Bigworm on Tuesday, July 06, 2004 at 5:26 AM

Now the Bush campaign is in freaking trouble. John Edwards is Kerry's running mate. As big as a fan of Dubya that I am, John Edwards is right up there too, decisions decisions.

adrian on Tuesday, July 06, 2004 at 6:48 AM

I said the only way that I would vote is if Edwards was Kerrys's running mate. Looks like Kerry has my vote

Green Baron on Tuesday, July 06, 2004 at 7:45 AM

My vote for web-page slogan....
"We're married and not into dudes"
either that or,
"If you're here to polish up your Klingon, you've came to the wrong place"
Notice the "came" in that second one....sort of has double meaning, heh?
Anyway, not to start up another discussion....but I did see Fahrenheit this weekend, and was pleasantly surprised. Not like any of you who don't want to see it are going to rush out and go or anything. But I would say it is far better than Columbine. Where I thought Moore attacked those who were not responsible for the events at Columbine, Moore leaves his attacks to those he finds are in direct relation to this administration in the new movie.
Plus, I cried several times upon viewing the footage of the Iraqi war. You know, watching the tanks and military roll through the desert is pretty adrenaline rushing, but watching the innocent bodies of children and kids being loaded into the back of a truck for disposal is very saddening. In addition, the shots of the attacks on our soldiers is quite depressing as well.
It gives a better perspective of a warzone than our media does, that's for sure.
War blows....I think we can all agree on that.
Anyway, the movie was great, but I don't expect any Bush-backer to go see it. Just like I'm not going to rush out to any one of Bush's addresses. So keep your opinion, and vote for Kerry.
Ha ha ha....just a little joke. Vote for Nader.

Green Baron on Tuesday, July 06, 2004 at 7:58 AM

I can't speak english...."you've come to the wrong place"
Anyway....
Sorry to turn it dirty, Brock didn't warn me the direction this website was headed.....
How about the following:
"Nattysci, the organization fighting the good fight against Michael Bolton and Barbara Streisand"
You see, cause everyone hates them....therefore it looks like we're the largest organization on the planet.
Anyway, let's get back to our discussion on the theory of relativity.

Phil on Tuesday, July 06, 2004 at 8:22 AM

I thought last week we pretty much wrapped up the theory of relativity. In fact, didn't we decide that it was no longer a theory but more of a proof?

Anyways, I think I gained 20lbs last night. Stupid white castle.

Those chicken sandwiches at white castles are pretty good.

I am blaming my forget fulness on the churning cauldron of white castles, jager bombs and bud light that is my stomach. Anyways...I probably won't be able to go to see (earmuffs)"fahrenheit" til later.Sorry. Also, I was reading the velocity the other day, (yes, literacy is one of the few things they teach us in Canada.), and noticed that someone is forming an adult dodge ballleague. I thought that I would put the idea of forming a natty sci dodgeball team on the table and see if anyone was receptive to the idea. Maybe we would be better at dodgeball than trivia. (Which wouldn't be hard, given last night's dismal performance.) Remember, "if you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball."

http://money.cnn.com/2004/07/06/new...dex.htm?cnn=yes

Bigworm on Tuesday, July 06, 2004 at 2:52 PM

That is a 30-60-90 triangle.

Jeb said 125 + 90 which is 215 degrees. This is more than the total sum of any triangle which has angles of 180 degrees.

Bigworm on Tuesday, July 06, 2004 at 2:57 PM

wow I jumped all over those dimensions of the triangle, didn't even notice it was in the article.

Man am I retarded.

Phil on Tuesday, July 06, 2004 at 3:13 PM

The angles for a 3-4-5 triangle would be 36.87, 53.13 and 90 degrees.

inverse sine of 3/5 = 36.87
inverse sine of 4/5 = 53.13

The isosceles right triangle has 3-4-5 length sides with 30-60-90 degree angles.

Phil on Tuesday, July 06, 2004 at 5:15 PM

Ok, I just watched the Air Up There. Why did Kevin Bacon not take Saleh's older brother too. The guy was obviously built better to handle college ball, and had better skills to boot. Did he already go to college? Why not take both?

The reason I bring this up is because I recognized him from White Men Can't Jump. Turns out he was also in Blue Chips, Forget Paris and Earl "The Goat" movie. I did some research and he was all pac 10 in 1985 and the conference defensive player too.

Boy, that really ruined the movie for me. I'll never watch it with the respect and awe it once commanded.

Phil on Tuesday, July 06, 2004 at 5:21 PM

An isosceles triangle is a triangle with (at least) two equal sides. So it couldn't be 3-4-5. And if you work out the math, the numbers don't add up anyways. A 30-60-90 triangle would have a ratio of .5, .5*sqrt(3), 1 for the sides.

Where are my nerd glasses when I need them?

Marc on Wednesday, July 07, 2004 at 12:19 AM

phil, wes is right that the funny part is where jeb say "I don't know, 125, 90 and whatever remains on 180?" because his first two numbers are larger than 180 combined already.

as for the angles, i think i speak for everyone when i say "who gives a shit"

adrian on Wednesday, July 07, 2004 at 4:55 AM

Well spoken Marc, but your still a fag!

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 07, 2004 at 5:49 AM

Okay I am an idiot because I can't remember what an isosceles triangle is.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 07, 2004 at 5:57 AM

The 30-60-90 triangle has side of a, 1/2a, and 1/2a*sqrt(3).

that's not in with the pythagorean theorem at all.

Oh well, maybe I can't pass a 10th grade HS exam, but I can pass college chemistry.

Homer: The sum of the square roots of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side.

Kelly,

Dick's, Target, or some other retail outlets will have basic cues for a cheaper price. Now if you get something really nice, that will cost you. If you want to ask some one who will know. Go up to this site's Trivia Arch Nemesis' and click on Waggs and ask him.

Phil on Wednesday, July 07, 2004 at 5:01 PM

so i'm watching streetball, and I thought I recognized this big white dude that made the tour in CA. I did a search on his name, and the dude played for Washington St. Talk about a kick in the ass for those on the open run when the Pac-10 ball players start showing up. Highlight of the show: some guy got dunked on, and another little buddy started yelling "you get tea bagged, you gotta GO!"

Phil on Wednesday, July 07, 2004 at 5:38 PM

kellie, i'm sure you can get one at a second-hand sports store.

mowgli on Wednesday, July 07, 2004 at 6:22 PM

It's called a cue, hello!

Green Baron on Wednesday, July 07, 2004 at 6:24 PM

I got my stick from an actual billiards store. They have one in Indianapolis, they probably have one in Louisville. I paid $150 for mine and it is very nice.
You can pay $30-50 for one at Wal-mart, Target, Meijer, or Dick's or whatever. Dick's might have some really nice ones....I've never looked.
However, a place that actually deals in pool tables, balls, etc. should have the best, and you can expect to pay $100+.
You don't have to be good to step up to a nice stick (I suck), but the nice thing about shelling out that kind of cash is....your stick doesn't warp nor will the cue tip fall off.
I've had mine for 10 years and it's gone through all temperature ranges in the back of my truck and it is still like new. Therefore I don't have to screw with getting a decent stick at some shady pool hall.
That's just my little info....

Phil, i'm asking this because bambi wants to know and I can't remember, so maybe you do.

remember awhile back, a random night at your apartment and bambi said mindy reminded her of that chick on techtv's xplay, morgan something. then you said that bambi reminded you of another girl on some other show. was it G4?

just so I can quit being super gay with this post...what was the show and girl you were talking about?

Raul Duke on Thursday, July 08, 2004 at 6:06 AM

Kelly.. If you haven't bought a cue yet, Stepleton has some very solid, well made cues for 25 to 50 that are break apart (i.e. not one big piece, they unscrew for much easier transportation). When I first started playing seriously I bought one of these with a case for about $50 total and still use both to this day.

Bigworm on Thursday, July 08, 2004 at 11:30 AM

Okay so I am sitting home before I travel to Indy to see Jimmy Buffet in concert and what do I come across on tv? The movie made infamous from the dating days of my wife and I, "Down To You". I am compelled to watch it, well the last 30 minutes atleast. to see if it is as crappy as I remember it to be (and for the record I only purchased one ticket and gave jay a "never have to pay me back loan" for his ticket this first time around, fuckers). To answer my question, Julia Styles is hot but yes the movie still sucks ass.

There is a scene which almost made it a step above shitty, and by almost I mean not at all. After Buffy's husband moves into his new pad, he is carrying a case of PBR cans! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Phil on Thursday, July 08, 2004 at 11:34 AM

I don't think I'd ever put two and two together. Wasn't the dude's name Pedriq in the game? I hated that guy. I'd always take the NL Allstars when we'd play. You've got Tim Raines, Andre Dawson, Ryan Sandberg, Eric Davis, Mike Schmidt ... and Pedriq sitting there waiting to suck. With Tony Gwynn AND Dale Murphy riding the pine.

That fucker. Of course, I was far too stupid to sub (nor had the patience to do so as a 10 year old).

I've been told that if you pre-order NCAA Football 2005 at EB Games (or whatever it's called), you might be able to snag it the 12th, three days before the release date. EA has a distribution center here in Louisville, so stores get it the same day that they ship it, and EB generally releases games the day they get it.

Wrecking Crew on Friday, July 09, 2004 at 1:27 PM

Joe, have you thought about calling anyone? Or is there even anyone int the city who could advise you on where to find the scores?

So if no scores come back, are you drinking until they do?

And then, you can always go be a fireman. Use your knowledge of fire to start burning down actuary firms, and then go put them out.

Green Baron on Monday, July 12, 2004 at 7:49 AM

I was hoping that some of you web-freaks could lend a hand and help out your fellow retard....
I am looking for a COMPLETELY free DVD player (the software) for Windows XP. XP destroyed my old one, installed a new one, and then somehow that one got removed too.....although the files were still there (it claimed some shit like protection faults or lacking a DVD encoder or something).
Anyway, I tried the WinDVD, and it requires buying after 30 days, and I just refuse to pay $30 for something I can't hold in my hand or touch.
So if someone would be so nice who knows a great DVD player that is absolutely free....could you pass it along?
Thanks!

Green Baron on Monday, July 12, 2004 at 7:51 AM

Oh yah...
Windows media player sucks ass.
It won't play the DVDs either, and Bill Gates sucks it. You reading this Bill?
I know my DVD drive is fine, as WinDVD worked great....just the 30 day thing twitches my twinkie.
Anyway....please help me.....

Phil on Monday, July 12, 2004 at 9:19 AM

DVD players can't be free. Every copy that is out there, the DMCA gets money from. That's why when those kids broke the encryption for a DVD player, they get hunted down like dogs.

It's wasn't because people could freely copy DVDs, because obviously that's easy enough to do. It was because the DMCA was worried they couldn't stick it everyone from DVD playing software to home DVD players.

As for your other issues, you got me on how to fix them. Personally I'd just erase everything and start from scratch.

Anyways, the kids did it because of a sermon about false idols. Like the Virgin Mary. I think some where down the line the only bible the Southern Baptists had was some jacked up bible with like the whole new testament ripped out beside revelations, which they decided to take completely out of context. How else could they miss the parts about things like tollerence.

Phil on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 4:41 AM

I was trying to think back on how I missspellled it to begin with. Stupid brain isn't working.

BTW, I think my hotel room is haunted. I woke up at 4am with a light turned on and my wallet and keys knocked on the floor (which had been sitting on the dresser with the lamp across from my bed). And I've been having some pretty fucked up dreams.

Like last night I had a dream I was teaching a 5 day class (M-F), but on Wednesday and Thursday I had a two day class to teach. The dream kicks in on Friday, when I realize that my first class was 5 days, not two. When I ask my boss whether I should be teaching the third day or the fifth day, I was told just to teach the fifth day even though I never taught days three and four. The reason? All our five day technical classes end on Friday, and that's what they paid for, and they are out of luck for days three and four. And I had to tell them this.

And the worst part of the dream? I wouldn't be terribly surprised if it came true.

Oh, and the internet costs ten dollars a day to use in this haunted shithole.

Phil on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 6:17 AM

Phil on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 6:36 AM

They've got a satelite office in N. KY, I guess so people don't need to cross the bridge and drive 15 miles to blue ash for a class. It's me and one other person teaching here. They have no sales people, no front desk and no managers. Not so bad for work, really.

Anyone watch the HR derby last night? I was pretty boring until Teejada and Burkman started blasting them. My earlier prediction of Bonds is too old to make it past round two stood up, and I wasn't too surprised to see Sammy go out while trying to hard.

Teejada didn't even look tired in the third round after his 15 in the second round. He had what, 5 with only two outs and he was still blasting them out of the park. Pretty damn impressive.

Bigworm on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 7:14 AM

Yeah the HR derby really heated up in the 2nd round. Burkman and Tejada had some freaking blasts last night. I wish Griffey Jr. would have been able to compete last night because he has the sweetest swing in baseball. I think Sosa needed to get the corked bat out again, then perhaps he could have belted a few more and survived the first cut. What about Palmero, that guy had a nice groove in round 1.

adrian on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 7:30 AM

A freaking Short Stop (Tejada) hit the longest ball (497') Very fucking impressive. Sammy let me down a little.

Anyways,the 2,3,4 spots for the national league goes Pujols,Bonds,and Rolen. I can't wait to see some fucking pitchers actually pitch to Barry.

joe on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 7:45 AM

but seriously i could have hit at least five going opposite field to left. what was it 260 down the line. that is a pussy field. the only homers that should have counted were the ones that left the stadium or went into the upper deck. Who thinks that bonds in the next year will fall off the face of the earth and choke like marion jones and tim montgomery did at the olympic trials?

adrian on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 8:16 AM

Bonds is a pure hitter so I don't think he will be going anywhere until he breaks Hank's record within the next two years.

http://www.worldzone.net/sports/bas...l/dirtvol2.html

(scroll down til you see the bonds comparison pictures.)

After seeing the pictures, do you honestly think the Boy is on Roids?

Green Baron on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 8:36 AM

I don't even know why people concern themselves with the argument of steroids in baseball.
I mean, hello! #1 - MLB doesn't test....hmmmmm....do we really trust all these athletes NOT to use them? #2 - come on....it's obvious isn't it? Just look at the massive bulk these players put on in only a year or 2.
The discussion shouldn't be whether or not a player or another is using roids......that one's obvious.
How about a discussion on whether they should be part of the game or whether the MLB should crack down.

I'm against it. I'm all about the nostalgia of the game. Once the players start abusing the records and hammering out 70 home runs every season...it isn't fun to watch anymore. Baseball is awesome for the anticipation, let's face it...it's a bore to watch. However, the "what-if" factor brings a major appeal to the game. When you erase that factor by letting the freaks play, it gets boring again. Yah, it was fun the first time to watch roided McGwire knock out #63, but how many people honestly watched Bonds hit #71? I missed it because I didn't have cable....or didn't care. It just wasn't as fascinating the first time.
Of course, I would have been against juicing up the ball or allowing alternative composition of wood bats (like that new Maple wood that provides greater strength, more bounce, and lighter weight). But that shit is done and over with. At least we should maintain the integrity of the game and the "what-if" factor by losing the freaks of nature.

"We weren't necessarily, as it was told to us, a newsgathering organization so much as we were a proponent of a point of view," says Jon Du Pre a former Fox News correspondent.

I think that will be my new signature for my e-mails to my right-wing friends who keep quoting Fox News.

joe on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 10:29 AM

fuck steroids they should just make everything legal. it is all part of survival of the fittest. you have to do what you have to do. if you want to make it in the bigs you gotta hit the juice or work your ass off or do both. the thing that pisses me off is the 315 foot fences. make it a fucking challenge. That is smaller then the fields i played on when i was 13. Fucking bellarmines field is bigger then most major league fields by a lot. if players are gonna juice then lets raise the pitchers mound so pitchers throw harder and move the fences back. however, even if you do juice hitting a baseball is still a fucking hard thing to do.

adrian on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 10:37 AM

I don't agree with Joe's view on Roids but I do agree with the bullshit length of the fields. The 320' fields have to go. Fucking Pussies!

Green Baron on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 10:58 AM

I guess I understand the nostalgia of all the fields being different, but I think it's fucked up to have them differ by a huge amount. Shouldn't there be something in the rule books about how big a field should be, and why can't they restrict those proportions. Because Red Sox fans will be all pissed off about losing their Green Monster? They can stick it up their ass.
Yah, it's hard to hit a baseball at 90 mph.....anybody ever go in a superfast cage? I nearly shit myself. However, what we're doing is drugging ourselves in order to enhance the play of the game....I'm saying the game was awesome before that...it doesn't need the enhancement.
It bores the shit out of me to see people either strike out or hit a home run. Plus, it's impossible to compare how good these druggy-freaks compared to the naturals of yesterdays.
Are they good because they can hit a baseball often, or good because their testacles are pea-sized and they're impotent.

joe on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 12:00 PM

or you could look at it this way, how good would mickey mantle or babe ruth have been not had they been on steroids, but had they played sober. try hitting 714 homeruns drunk. That is talent. Sober that man up and put him on roids and you have a beast.

something we havent touched on either is the diluted talent in the field of pitching. the expansion of baseball has drained the talent of the pitching. What used to be minor league talent is now 4th and 5th starters that bonds and thome are eating alive.

but on a different note did anybody watch the celebrity all star softball game. I hadnt seen will clark and cecil fielder play together since the last time i played rbi baseball. That game was an rbi baseball fans dream.

Phil on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 12:11 PM

"Mayne's team ended up cruising to a 15-8 blowout victory, paced by MVP Tony Todd, who went 3-for-3 and made a number of spectacular plays in the field. Have you ever seen one of those shortened Special Olympics games at halftime of an NBA contest, where there's always one guy who's just a little TOO good to be in the game? That's Tony Todd. He should be banned for life, or at least suspended indefinitely until he beefs up his IMDB.com page."

Of course there is a bias associated with fox news. There is a bias on Al-jazeera and the majority of any other news source in the world. In fact, there are even biases found in documentary movies such as Farenheit 911! I will go as far to say that there are even biases found in books that people refer to, because it is the point of view of the author.

Any time someone gives their opinion on a certain issue there is a bias that is introduced.

Stick to the facts.

Green Baron on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 2:15 PM

Couldn't agree with you more Wes...I agree, everything is biased. But it really pisses me of when some right-winger tells me that Fox tells the news like it really is; that the rest are too liberal. It's a crock of shit.
Granted, the rest are biased as well, but don't be pointing a finger to Fox saying it tells it straight. I don't know how many arguments I've been in when people reference Fox news and their "opinions". Oh wait a second, yah I know, once. But that one time really pissed me off man.

Take Tonight Talking Point issue for Bill O'Reilly.
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,125510,00.html

I actually do agree with SOME of what he says. He tries to talk about the differences between dissent, dishonor, and dishonesty.

However, how come Ann Coultr's argument is allowed to slide against Edwards's boyish looks and personality, yet Whoopi's joke using Bush's name is not? That is dishonoable? many people have made fun of others, including their names. (just ask Dick Butkis) Malicios jokes are wrong, in my opinion. I laugh when somebody calls Michael Moore fat if its funny, not if it's malicious or someone's reason for why not to listen to him (ralph nader) humor should not be dishonorable. humor should be funny. That's why even parody is protected under the laugh.

people have the right to dissent as O'Reilly agrees. but I think they have the right to do so anywhere. This is not a case of "nobody can pick on my little borther but me" it is a free democracy. you shouldn't want to talk out about it infront of foreigners, burn the flag, or denounce it, but you have that right.

true, you often have people on both sides go too far for their cause and incinuate things or manufacture items, and they cause more harm than good.

if "While president, Mr. Clinton did a number of questionable things. Conservatives especially were angered that Mr. Clinton used the Oval Office in an unseemly way and then lied about it. The dissent over that was absolutely appropriate"
Billy O'Reilly

then likewise
"While president, Mr. George W. Bush did a number of questionable things. Liberals especially were angered that Mr. Bush used the Office of the Presidency in an unseemly way and then lied about it. The dissent over that was absolutely appropriate"
Marc Oldham

Sorry to go political, but someone else did it first. maybe we should keep politics in the "Got a bad case of the Crazy" post.

Bigworm on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 4:15 PM

Green Baron - If I recall, I may be wrong on this one, I mentioned Billy O not fox news (yes i know his segment is on fox). Keep in mind, he is about as right wing as they come but I used his name because that is who I was listening to on my XM radio. I never said that fox news was completely right, in fact I know they aren't. The guy who runs FARK sits at home to watch FOX NEWS just to see how much they fuck up the truth. To make the comment that fox tells it like it is, is far from the truth. I have always had the view that the truth lies somewhere in the middle, and will always have that belief.

To call me a right winger, not completely. I have socialist, leftist, and rightist views.

Marc on Tuesday, July 13, 2004 at 4:42 PM

I agree with what you said wes. I just wish to further add that Rupert Murdock owns many different radio, television, newspaper, and magazine outlets. The New York Post for example, which said Gephardt won the Vice Presidential Nomination from Kerry. No byline, no reporter attributed to it. A paper of that size and no one puts their name on it? Other newspaper insiders specualate that it could have only come from the top, possily Murdock himself. If this happens in one mdeium it could happen in others. Look at Pulitzer and William Randolph Hurst when they owned the news outlets. Unfavorable stories were sometimes left out. Look at Wal-mart. Want to ban bad langauge in songs? I deisagree with it but fine. But they banned a Sheryl Crow album (relax jay, she may suck but I have a point) because is one of her songs she was critical about Wal-mart. Some might say, "they have the right to do that, they own the stores" Maybe certain comapnies do have this right. But the news should attempt to be bias-free. Commentators can be biased, and news and facts shouldn;t be.

The Documentary "Outfoxed" does primarily deal with the television station and does not "come to draw a fianl conclusion" i had one person say. But then perhaps people might like it more since a lot of people had trouble with drawn conclusions by another filmmaker in a recent documentary. Here are some clips of people in their own words.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 7:42 AM

Yeah Adrian Flanagan's is gay now, however, when it was just a beer house, it was pretty cool. You could go up there at midnight and get a table outside on the sidewalk and hang with your buddies. There were no french blue shirts and slacks either (very few if so). Of course, it will take 2 years but looks like flanagans will either return to its roots or close down.

I think the expansion of 4th sreet live is a great idea. We could have a bar/entertainment district in the city and keep it away from residential areas like the highlands. This could spell bad news for the local pubs, but fuck them who cares, they don't want us there anyways. If that area continues to grow perhaps the bars on baxter will move down there, or another idea would be to move into mid-city mall on bardstown.

Green Baron on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 7:42 AM

First off, Wes, sorry to deflate your balloon, but none of my references were to you.
Second, I shouldn't have used the term right-winger. You might be a right-winger from the sound of things. But what I really should have said was "Republicans". For it is my belief that a right-wing person has his/her own views from looking at the facts. A "Republican" just believes what everyone else on the right says and really has no opinion or evidence to back it up.
Essentially, that's why I refuse to call myself a Democrat. I don't believe in everything Democrats say, first off. Second, I have my own damn opinions how things should be run with my reasons for it.
So, my post should have stated my arguments with Republican friends, none present on this forum, and also no longer friends. I got in a heated discussion with an asshole at the beginning of the Iraq war and every link he sent me went to Fox News, which 2 days later was always disproved by a more reliable source and shoved back in his face (like the outfitted chemical weapons mobile units, which were completely decrepit, yet Fox refused to state it until others did).
So don't think I've started attacking you. Personally I think you have your opinions and reasons for them, and are highly educated on the matter. I'm talking about ignorant fucks who can't think for themselves so they let someone else do it for them.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 7:49 AM

Green Baron on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 7:53 AM

And I hate Wal-Mart, they can burn in hell. I have personally put a ban on ever buying Wal-mart shit. One, because they're killing the US economy. Two, because they banned Sheryl Crow.
Yes....I'm a Sheryl Crow fan....eat shit.
Unfortunately she's one of the very few female artists I can tolerate. If you're going to pick one, I think she's the best. The rest of them are terrible, not to be sexist. Oh wait, yah....I'm sexist too, I forgot. But I think all this political discussion would be totally thwarted had women never had the right to vote.
Let's see....
2 major wars in 1800's, not a whole lot of political mishap.....women get right to vote in early 1900's....then WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and a million political mishaps....coincidence??? You decide.
Damn war-mongering women are killing this nation...
You see, they don't have to fight, yet they can vote for war? You see where I'm getting right? Maybe I should make a documentary and call it, "The Evil that Women Do".
(By the way, hopefully everybody can notice the sarcasm and humor associated with this, I laid it on pretty thick)

Phil on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 7:55 AM

i'm think close to changing any post that contains the terms liberal or right-wing into saying "i just got slammed by some dudes."

speaking of which, I hate that stupid scooter thing telling me what a slider is. thanks scooter.

and does anyone else thing that mike piazza told manny "he's shaking me off, can you believe that shit? Manny, here comes the deuce and when you speak of me speak well" when manny teed off on clemens?

I guess he'd say something like treece for a slider, but whatever.

Phil on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 7:58 AM

err, that should read "i'm this close to"

yeah, so I frequently proof-read a post, change it, and fail to proof read what I just changed. I'm an idiot.

someone reached natty sci by searching for "phobias fear of cheerleaders"

I just got slammed by some dudes

No really...I did.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 8:23 AM

Yeah I think we all picked up on the sarcasm, but fuck why not make it into a documentary. Of course we would be hated by the opposite sex, however, we could make a ton of money.

Brock on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 8:55 AM

Damn you people never post when I'm not doing anything in the lab, but when I'm busy slamming Isaac, you post like mad!

First off, Marc must've got slammed by some dudes with his out-of-nowhere commentary. In response, since I have to lean to my left (left-handed people rule!), of course O'Reilly didn't say Ann Coulter was in the wrong with her statements... look at her! She's freakin' hot! Look at Whoopi, not so hot, except for that one scene in Sister Act. Seriously, his argument is valid because Coulter was referring to a political strategy, not directly degrading Edwards, whereas Whoopi was just being derrogatory. I'm not passing judgement, simply interpretting the argument. Even if I don't agree with someone, I have to admire an organized argument.

4th Street vs. Baxter Ave - First, Adrian, you flip sides on this issue more than Italy! Fuck the OHNA, fuck 4th St., fuck Baxter bars, fuck Marc, you seem to be fuckin' a lot these days!
I think its awesome 4th street is taking off, its actually a prime location for the Crazed Buffalo Tavern next door to Marc's Secret Stall Gentlemen's Club.

Sheryl Crow - I'd go to her concert, for those wicked gangbangs she has backstage in her trailer.

All Star Game - Phil hit the nail on the head with his Clemens-Piazza logic, but in general that game was pretty boring... not much after the first innning.

Who wants to go to Kings Island in a couple of weeks?

Green Baron on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 8:56 AM

All right, I'll get started on it.
Now the first step is to go round up some hookers to explain how and why they voted, or why they didn't, as well as their philosophy on politics. Because the first rule of any documentary is to get commentary from a bunch of people who aren't directly associated with, or representative of, the group you are attacking. Then we need a poster representative of women's movement, I say we pick Barbara Streisand, because everyone hates her already. In fact, if we claim Barbara Streisand as the leader of the feminist movement, I'm sure we'd draw popular support from even some women.
Then we can interview some female senators and make sure to cut out the material that doesn't support our view, and then throw in some scandals that might not be true into the mix, and then later, we can just say, "Yah, it turns out the guy that told us those things, he was lying....oh well, it's still damn funny though, right?"
This is gonna be great....a box office smash I can tell.

Jay on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 9:16 AM

Issac- What sarcasm? Women really are evil. And crazy.

Fourth street live is cool, but Wicks will always be just a little cooler. Not to say that I won't hang out at 4SL, just not all the time. Wait, did I just type 4SL instead of fourth street live. I love the cock.
Wal-Mart banning Sheryl Crowe was bulls***, even though her music sucks. Marc and I have joined in your ban against Wal-Mart. F*** them up their stupid asses.

Bigworm on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 9:17 AM

Fucking great idea.

We should also flip the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal around on her and show the President as a good moral man and Lewinsky as a viscious sexual predator.

Phil on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 9:23 AM

I bet Lewinsky was just using Clinton to get back at another boyfriend. She probably thought to herself "boy will mr. 'no thanks, saddlebags' regret dumping me. what could make a man more jealous than seeing his woman with POTUS?"

I just like typing POTUS when refering to the president.

Watch the Netipot demo. WTF?

Phil on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 12:23 PM

Btw, if anyone has NCAA 2005, I'll be getting a roster file soon to get the players names on there instead of just a number. So give me a hollar if you want them. If you've got a ps2, I can't help you out, but I know how you can get them.

Phil on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 12:24 PM

oooh, in computer news Doom3 will be released on August 3, with most stores in the US selling them on the 5th.

Green Baron on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 12:51 PM

That netipot video kicks ass.
I can't believe I've been sticking that thing up my ass all this time. No wonder it didn't work!

Phil on Wednesday, July 14, 2004 at 12:58 PM

I've been putting it in my ear. Just pour it in one ear, it just flows out the other. Amazing really.

The idea is that the Harry Potter from Year 7 and the Harry Potter from Year 4 started a rock band. And now, no one can stop the wizard rock.

The sports guy on the Shaq trade. Worth reading if only for the comparision to Shaq's favorite movie (and one of my own): http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page...ons/take/040714

adrian on Thursday, July 15, 2004 at 6:18 AM

I cannot believe the Lakers traded Shaq for those three ass clowns and a future ass clown. They are some total fuck tards.

Brock on Thursday, July 15, 2004 at 7:00 AM

But like the Sports Guy said, this is only going to make Shaq and the NBA better. I loved how he used the term "Angry Shaq" whenever fantasizing about a team. Its like he'll magically gain superpowers and destroy the league. I personally wouldn't mind seeing him kill Kobe.

Brock on Thursday, July 15, 2004 at 8:41 AM
