  Race Cars
Posted by: Liberty - 01-19-2014, 09:43 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (8)

If by chance the Earth was twice the size, and consequently had twice the gravity, it makes sense that everything would weigh twice as much.  However, would a race car accelerate faster or slower on our different, double-sized world?

  Why are carpenter pants always left handed?
Posted by: RETICENT_IRREVERENT - 01-19-2014, 07:28 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)

So most people in the world are right handed and carpenter pants are always left handed.
Is this a lefty plot?

The word sinister comes from Latin meaning left handed.

  It is never Lupus.
Posted by: Liberty - 01-18-2014, 09:53 PM - Forum: General Discussion - No Replies

Probably my favorite thing about the internet are the creation and evolution of ideas.  When these gain some noteriety on large web sites we call them memes.   At that point the variations  become a collective statement  of human thought.  Sometimes you find some meme that expresses your thoughts in way better than you can yourself.

One meme that has always been a core device I use when analyzing probelems is the meme "it's never lupus".  That is from House MD if you don't know.  The premise of the meme is that when all other options have been eliminated, Lupus is usually offered as a last chance answer given in some state of deseperation.

To me, the meme means that in work or life, it is sometimes hard to not take the last desperate answer as gospel and just stop being critical.  

It's not Lupus and it never has been.  Most importantly it can never be Lupus even if that means we are wrong.

"Oh, gummy bears! They’re so tasty and delicious you can never eat just one. In fact most of us eat them by the handful.   And with diet season in full swing, some of us may be looking at the sugar-free alternative to help ease the gummy bear cravings.

But before you hop on Amazon to make a bulk purchase of the sugar-free variety, you just might want to read the safety warnings.  Or better yet, take a look at the user submitted reviews. We’ve compiled the best of the best for you here at Slightly Viral…"

  Rodgers Scores at Free State Brewery

Photo from Free State Facebook

I guess he was quite a gentleman posing with all the kids after lunch.  He still had his Free State smile when he caught up with Bill in the LJW picture.

He has the flippin' ring that got him the ticket to the White House and now wants to see the Fieldhouse. 

This is bigger "news" here than the First Lady's Birthday for sure.

  Roberts votes against Kansan's best interests
Posted by: Jessamine - 01-18-2014, 12:18 PM - Forum: News Discussion - Replies (29)

"Kansas’ two Republican senators split their votes. Sen. Pat Roberts, who faces a tea party challenger in the primary later this year, voted against the bill. Sen. Jerry Moran supported it, calling it a measure “that attempts to set funding priorities based on more responsible oversight of government programs."

  NSA Reforms
Posted by: RETICENT_IRREVERENT - 01-17-2014, 11:08 AM - Forum: News Discussion - Replies (9)

The news conference has not started yet, but my opinion will be that the "reforms" will be actions to placate the people and make them more "comfortable" with what is being done, rather than making meaningful changes.
