I took a bunch of photos of Tunch, but I can not find the cable to connect the camera to the computer.
My bet is Tunch hid it to hide his girth.
Or, since I am an uncontrollable Bush hater, maybe I will just blame Chimpy McHitlerburton.
PS- Weekends are for WoW.
Weekendsall days are for WoW.
I fixed your typo
John, I wanted to congratulate you on getting your new right-wing character set up for the coming semester. This one is really interesting, thinks he’s a Dem when he isn’t. That’s a new twist. I predict the page hits will soar with this one.
Was the last few days his pre-requisite test? I guess he has to prove that he’s ready for your advanced class? How are you planning to grade him? I’m curious.
Heh. RA, UI was assuming that Cassidy was one of the troll’s newest effort — and he’s GOOD.
I smell -DougJ-
I second that, though I probably shouldn’t keep feeding them…
You all are nuts. I have nothing to do with Cassidy’s emergence here.
For the record- Tim pretty accurately described Cassidy’s penchance for believing stereotypes, I just wish you all would stop piling on when someone is new- even if they are acting poorly.
Fixed. All Hail the Lich King.
Hey, folks? John’s not full time, IIRC. He doesn’t have doctoral students — and Cassidfy is at at least PhD candidate caliber. You should believe him when he says C isn’t any of his students.
I am certifiable but that’s besides the point. Sorry for piling on, I was trying to have reasonable debate.
I will be levelling my lowbie horde mage. I am 37 now, hope to be 40-something by the end of the weekend. Plus, I have season 2 of smallville, which was just delivered.
Completely different game but my NWN Cleric (Death Priest really) should be around lvl 25 by the end of the weekend, and of course the NWN 2 expansion is due this fall WOOHOO!
Beside, John, you’re simply wrong. Weekends are for D&D Online.
Dork alert! Geez, you people and your video games.
(I made the mistake of installing Civ 4 this week. So much for work.)
Civ IV is terrible. I think I played it for one weekend and lost interest.
Civ III, on the other hand…
Is it worth the cost? I help run a PW for NWN and it’s free.
Civ 4 is awkward and a bit slow on my machine. I’m still giving it a chance. I still have 3 installed, of course.
That’s what I wanna do. Retire from my job and live in luxury from the money that just pours endlessly into my blog.
Love Civ IV, although I do miss some of the scenarios from Civ III.
I still haven’t tried out WoW. Frankly, at this point, I’m almost scared to. I’d probably get eaten alive.
I tried to WoW, I really did, but methinks a 12″ PowerBook was not the ideal instrument. Plus it felt too much like work. Run, run, run, bop something over the head, run, run, run, wait for your hide to get tanned, run run run run…
I run WoW on a 12″ Powerbook, and it is indeed sub-optimal. Still fun, though.
Women of Wrestling?
Tunch probably just ate it. You’ll find him yacking it up later along with a great big wet and slimy hairball.
How are folks planning to celebrate Pi Approximation Day (22 July)? I know it isn’t as Flashy as Pi day (March 14) or Talk like a Pirate Day (Sept 29) or SysAdmin day (last friday in July), but still, I’m assuming parades, speeches, beer drinking contests, … basically a denumerably infinite non-repeating series of ever greater events?
No — Pi approximation day is only for people who use the same six digits over and over again.

“They shoot abortion doctors in america”
I guess George W. Bush is now rounding up more abortion doctors for a public execution.
You’ve wasted 45 years of life. It is really sad how small you are, even with that much potential experience.
Oh yeah. It’s official:
I’m waaaay past ready for the end of this year’s Tourist Season.
I mean, how many of those suckers can you bag before you run out of space in the meat locker?
Cassidy likes pie.
what the fuck is “WoW”?
Jake, please don’t confuse the tourists for the jackalopes. There really is a difference.
Face: WoW = World of Warcraft.
Krista: It’s crack…literally. Careful, but just like any good dealer you can try it for free for 14 days to get you hooked. I got my wife hooked, now we flip coins for who gets to run to the store on the weekends for groceries. ha!
John: You play on a PVP server?
Civ III was the greatest, haven’t tried Civ 4.
Paul L.: you crack me up dude.
Ahhhhhh sweet WoW…the bane of my wife’s existance.
Good news, moonbats. Cheney’s in charge!
the best form of crack – wife gets pissy when I don’t have dinner ready at 8:00, but instances don’t leave nasty vials or incoherence laying around. But, it is crack. Good crack, but crack.
Blizzard, in their 14’ish years of public notice have 7 games – and now pull in more than $1 billion a month. A brilliant team.
Mais non, my good demimondian. Admittedly tourists (not to be confused with turrists) remain a seasonal problem and there has been a serious year-round jackalope problem in the nation’s capital since Sept. 11th, 2001. Now we’re at plague levels – the White House lawns are waist deep in the critters.
However, we’re expecting a massive die-off in January 2009. At that point we’ll see far fewer jackalopes at any given time and with the absence of the sub-species Terror-lope there will be even more tourists. The only other differences I can think of are:
1. Tourists are much heavier and harder to transport than jackalopes. Have you ever tried to shove a couple from Fort Worth into a messenger bag? Have you ever tried doing it discretely?
2. Tourists are often quite healthy (and tasty!) But I’d sooner eat a sewer rat than the mangy, deformed, crippled ‘lopes hobbling around these parts.
3. Fine, one more. Jackalopes don’t wear America (heart) Jesus t-shirts and shorts that ride up the crack of their hineys.
I have found I am surrounded by WoW players in my family and am feeling the pressure to try it, even when I swore I wouldn’t. I was going to wait until Warhammer came out but this may be too much. The only thing I am afraid of is that everyone’s already jacked up and overly game savvy which would make me easy prey – or destructive in a group.
That said, I hate to say that I am not overly frightened or offended by Cassidy’s remarks. He dies not strike me as any sort of troll. And the expert on hard right comments definitely belongs to Darryl and Stormy70 before him (anyone remember her?).
I’m definately not hard right…too much religious zealotry fro my taste. I’m just not a liberal.
Out geek this, bitches:
We were the last people to get into borders last night to buy harry potter. at 2:30am. I was drunk.
Yeah, I know, it’s so sad that I spent my time feeling compassion for regular people who are poor, pissed on and trapped in financial dilemmas. I should have spent the last 45 years crying because of fatcat CEO’s and corrupt government officials not gaining the opportunity to be even fatter and more corrupt.
You seem to act as if you know what I did in these 45 years. Since you know so much about my life and how I “wasted” it as you say, why don’t you give me some examples. Events, Dates, Places, Names of Attendees. You don’t know SHIT!
Hope you weren’t driving.
If you don’t like having assumptions about yourself, then don’t do the same in the first place. I would suggest a good internal look before you speak again. At the moment you ar enothing more than a lying hypocrite. But you are fixable.
‘if you don’t like having assumptions made about yourself, then don’t even remotely share a single belief with any of the stereotypes i have in my head’
How else am I going to mow down the line of 8 year olds outside the store?
Yes, I play on a pvp server. A dead one, though. Figure I will get to 70 and transfer.
It doesn’t work chopper. I don’t fall into the “I need to have my beliefs validated” group that Rome seems to inhabit. I’m not easily baited.
that last thread sure tells me that you are easily baited.
and what else are such sweeping generalizations and close-held stereotypes for except for having your own beliefs validated? that’s what stereotyping does.
Please tell us you weren’t wearing robes and fake spectacles.
That’s reserved for the bedroom macarana. :)
I wonder if reading a book drunk is better than sober? Certainly there are more hazards like puking on it.
Stereotypes are lagely based in some sort of truth. Not all, of course, but a good number of them are amazingly accurate.
I f-ed the tags on that
WoW? Second Life, baby! I’m reducing my cable package to basic, I forget what movies are about, and I’m trying to figure out how to qualify as a housebound senior in order to get home care so I can drive my virtual 64 Mustang in my stilletoes that never hurt.
Hey Cassidy…are you WoW or SL? It’ll tell me so much about you….
WoW – I think I have to try heroin first, to make sure I can handle addiction on something a bit less destructive.
Really? I have many beliefs that nobody else on this blog holds, so what is your point exactly? I don’t expect anyone to validate my beliefs, and I never will.
You don’t know me, don’t pretend you do asswipe.
You seem to act like you know something just by stating that you do, that doesn’t make it true. As far as I’m concerned, you’re a mental midget with far too much ego and nothing more.
‘some sort of truth’, wow, that’s really heavy.
You got that from a pseudo-psychology book written by a wannabe therapist? Stereotypes are usually NOT what they seem to be, but are presented as such by small minds who have no capacity to look at something in a new light and recognize the difference. Stereotypes are nothing more than attack weapons.
You pretend to know me so well Cassidy, please explain my viewpoint on:
(pick any two)
I mean, after all, I fit your stereotype SO WELL, right?
Rome…you’re so angry. How can you be such a “compassioante” person when filed with so much venom. Seriously, seek counseling.
Funny, I’m smiling up a storm, why would I do that if I’m so angry? I’m having fun playing with your little mind. If you are so bothered by me, then please, by all means, STOP posting to me. ;)
Venom? What venom are you speaking of? Please furnish an example. Is it that you had to hit back after realizing you can’t describe my viewpoint on any of those three subjects? You came up empty handed and don’t want to feel the fool so you characterize me as angry and full of venom? Wow, you really do take the cake Cassidy. You’re a little man with a little mind.
Well, hoping someone would die is pretty venomous. Kinda low class if you ask me.
Hoping someone would die? I merely asked you to go to Iraq just as you asked me to. If I had gone, I would have had just as much possibility of dying there as you would. You also were telling me to die, don’t think you weren’t.
You were the one who asked me to die first.
Your problem with me is that I’m not a dog that will heel when you tell me to. Too bad, get over it. I’m not your fucking puppy.
Come on Cassidy, you can’t furnish my viewpoint on the subjects posted above, can you? Tell me how stereotypical I am again?
I didn’t ask you to die. I’ve been and am still alive. I simply asked you to sign up and go, as many of us have. You OTOH, specifically told me to go and die for a war I beleived in, which I stated very clearly I didn’t.
I’m not going to play silly games with you. Plus you never even produced the information I requested, so why should I offer the same courtesy?
You requested information? Oh, I’m sorry, I must have missed that while reading all your hyperbole. What information was that again?
You know that if I went to Iraq, I could die, so don’t say you didn’t ask me to die. That’s disingenuous.
Why would you ask me to go fight in a war that I didn’t believe in? Just because you did? I’m not a fool sir, despite that fact that you, apparently, seem to be.
I don’t place my life on the line for imperialist projects, if you choose to, that is your choice. Go right ahead. But, asking me to go fight (and yes, possibly die) in a war that you don’t even believe in yourself? That’s just fucked up reasoning. Moreover, you assumed I was enlistment age when I’m not, so what are you, some military recruiter using blogs to find more people willing to fall for Bush’s folly? They don’t get enough enlistees by running commercials to join the military in movie theaters now, they have to go find enlistees on blogs too? Followed a link from PJ media and assumed you might find some willing souls to go die in the Iraqi sand for Bushwar? Try FR or LGF, they’re the ones who believe in this war, not me.
Yes I did.
Could die and will die are two different things. It doesn’t change the fact that You were asked, based on your own absurd logic, to either prove you can hack it or not. It also doesn’t change the fact that you specifically asked me to go die. Very low class.
I don’t place my life on the line for “imperialists” pursuits either. I do what I do for my own reasons, which I’ve allready stated. And your age was immaterial to the subject. Your logic was that anything was an excuse. So, following your line of reasoning, your age is an excuse for you not to do anything worthwhile, other than bitch and moan. Of course it makes no sense, and neither did your previous argument on the subject.
No I’m not a recruiter. I’m a Combat Medic and an NCO. And I don’t like LGF…way too much rhetoric and no substance.
Did you guys just queer my WoW thread with another spat?
Well where is it? I thought that you would realize I was asking to see it.
My logic was that anything was an excuse? Please produce where I said such a thing. My age is not immaterial, I cannot go to Iraq and fight Bushwar even if I wanted to. And excuse me, but doing “anything worthwhile” is not exclusively warmongering, as a matter of fact, I think that fighting in wars is not worthwhile at all. I do plenty that is worthwhile. Your expectation that a 45 year old woman should go to Iraq to fight in a war she doesn’t believe in is LUDICROUS.
Your sense of honor is all you have to live for apparently.. would you like some little green plastic soldiers for Christmas? I’ll buy you some if it makes you feel better.
Last time I looked this thread was titled “OPEN THREAD”.
Lol…well at least your an equal opportunity B****. I guess you should get points for consistency. lol
Your insinuation that you can’t condemn and understand at the same time is equally ludicrous…that was the point.
So you’re content to let others fight for you, as you bask in your comfortable life full of naive opinions. How very “compassionate” of you. I call that lazy, to be perfectly honest.
Sorry. You play Wow..I fish.
There is so much that I want to say regarding all the crap you post all over this blog, but I’ll suffice to say one thing and then I’m done playing with you. I do not believe in war at all. I do not allow others to fight wars on my behalf, they are not fighting on my behalf. If I could personally stop them from warring, I would, but I don’t have the ability to do so. So, fuck you for your characterization of me, I really don’t care what you believe. You paint a picture of me that is not who I am because you don’t know me at all, I’m just a “B****” (struck a nerve did I?) right? You have no clue who I am, what I believe, or why you earn the ridicule from me that you do. You go on with your sense of honor and keep telling yourself that playing Risk on the big board is necessary. You are only keeping this world mired in war, but I can’t stop you.
Now, I’m done with you Cassidy, you can call me a million different names and I will NOT respond. You are no longer amusing to me, and I’m done with it. Have at it, smear my name all over the place, because I know you will.
Apparently I’ve struck a nerve, lol.
Not exactly, I’m only stopping to save the sanity of the others on this board who are getting tired of our merry war.
A moment of silence please.
The patron saint of drag queens has passed.
And no, I’m not snarking.
Damn, wasn’t she just on CNN like a couple of days ago?
