The fact that during the Bush presidency you were called a whiny stupid liberal if you complained about anything Bush did, and today we have those same people complaining about anything Obama hasn't even done yet.
What is even more hilarious is the fact that people are saying "RIP liberty", as if there were any specks surviving after the Patriot Act and its offspring.
Democracy is good only as long as they win, I guess. Tee-hee-hee.
You don't get flamed for quoting the Bible. You get flamed if you post "THE BIBLE SAYS THAT LOVE IS MADE OF X, Y AND Z AND EVERYTHING ELSE IS INCORRECT".
Why the h*ck can't people see even basic shades of grey but just everything as black and white? You get strongly opposed if you try to use the Bible to prove the Bible true (which I can do too: after all, I can ask myself if I'm right. SHAZAM! I'm ALWAYS right! Wonder? Magic? I'll never tell!) but you don't get flamed, if not by idiots, if you quote a rather beautiful verse from it. Same with, say, Salomon's Song or other quotes such as those.
Try and understand what causes which effect and don't just react in a Pavlovian style, because [i'll use religious terminology, leaving all scientific considerations aside] if God wanted us to have the intelligence of dogs, He wouldn't have bothered designing humans, He had already...dogs?
That's what causes people to get bitter whenever religion is mentioned: let's take a generic religious person and call him George. As long as George is never challenged nor questioned nor disputed, all is well. As soon as a generic non-religious person we'll call Carl tries to argue with George in a different way than his, George either closes every kind of communication AND/OR he starts complaining about being disrespected and offended.
You're going to need more than a post on an internet forum to become a martyr. At least do it out of basic respect for those who have become true martyrs for what they believed.
I'll be at Luana's house until Tuesday evening, so I guess I'll be inactive around here. :o Remember, don't feed the (polar) bears and always follow the rules.
While I will be away, I'll have my personal sidekick govern this blog and my part of the forums:

Long story short: some guys steal thirty sheep, then send the owner of the sheep a video of them (the perpetrators) shagging one.
There are times in which you don't know to laugh or weep and this is one of the best ones
Over 250 policies to check, which means more or less 100 tries at photocopying policies, which will be followed by more than 250 letters to send, and more or less 100 phone calls.
All this while managing current affairs, and before Friday.

I mean, this is a textbook recommended for grades 5-12. Come on.
(The ones for grades 1-5 are even more ridiculous, btw.)
Until the 15th I'll be working 12-22, with a pause between 18 and 19 to go to the other side of the city to reach the second workplace (where I'll assist people living in the Uni campus in their internets connection woes).
The first day has been quite smooth, despite me not having one damn clue about where exactly to go since I've never been to the campus - it involved a lot of walking around and a lot of usage of English. >.<
Happy Women's Day to every girl and unknown-gender on Sal's!
I'm playing the German version of Runescape, and it's pretty nifty to be honest. ^_^ But I found a thing.
Toadflax. Yes, the most-wanted herb (apart from ranarr, and snapdragon). I saw its name in German, and rolled out a "WTF".
You see, the toadflax used in-game is called "Cymbalaria" (using scientific names). In German, it's called Zimbelkräuter.
But in Runescape, it's called Frauenflachs. Roughly translated, it is "Womenflax".
So, for Jagex, Women = Toads? :P WOOT for March the 8th.
In jai alai the ball can reach speeds of up to 188 miles per hour.
That'd be 302 kilometres per hour.
Snowballs travelling at the speed of a Ferrari.
DO WANT, DO TOTALLY WANT.
So, I'm installing Windows XP on Giulia's computer, and I started the installation process this morning. I go make lunch at 12.10 and it says "39 minutes left". I get back from lunch and cleaning the courtyard at 14.35 and it says "37 minutes left".
Perhaps starting the installation with 64MB of RAM and then planning to add some wasn't a great idea.
Not that I care - it can take three days for all I care. I bought Oblivion two days ago and started playing it yesterday. All I can say is fap, fap, fap, fap.
