I think it comes down to how much you (as an individual) believe that the Quran (a book) is driving the actions of these people, or if the Quran is simply the rationalization they use to fuel their lust for power and revenge. » 3/26/15 1:39pm Thursday 1:39pm

Yeah, I think that says a lot, and it makes a lot of sense. If you can keep it interesting and intriguing, people will keep watching. The paychecks only roll while the show is airing, so who gives a shit if the audience isn't satisfied with the finale as long as they endured 7000 commercial breaks before they get… » 3/24/15 4:13pm 3/24/15 4:13pm

Obviously he's got no loyalties to any country. I heard that if he doesn't reach the Presidency, he's moving to Cuba and running there next. » 3/23/15 4:49pm 3/23/15 4:49pm

Ho-lee chit. As someone who has been on the 'my co-worker got promoted' side in the past, and is currently in the 'I'm the new manager' position... I'm simply astounded at your proposed blackmail of your former co-worker. I wasn't promoted because I 'knew someone', nor was it because I blackmailed someone into… » 3/20/15 2:47pm 3/20/15 2:47pm

Same here, except swap out "bread and butter" for "bran muffin". My mom was seriously into baking bran when I was a kid... and it may as well have been charcoal briquettes to my 7 year old brain. » 3/19/15 8:52am 3/19/15 8:52am

They are extremely smart, have wonderful personalities, and form strong bonds with their owners/families. If you have adequate space outside for them to thrive, they shouldn't be squealing much. They certainly aren't going to be a pet that everyone is going to like, but I can honestly say after owning many dogs, a… » 3/16/15 10:32am 3/16/15 10:32am

Like hell you'll shut us off! We'll have more than enough people to effectively launch our attack against the under-populated north. That great California Water Wars will be short lived, with a swift and decisive victory for the South. You'll be able to keep Oakland though. » 3/13/15 2:29pm 3/13/15 2:29pm

While I agree that diversity should be encouraged in publishing, prohibiting yourself from reading white-male authors is both sexist and racist. The problem doesn't even reside in the consumer/reader anyway; it's a bias at the publisher. I understand the idea that reducing the success of white-male authors could… » 3/11/15 2:52pm 3/11/15 2:52pm
