    US Politics: Sit Up Straight and Show Some Respect

    As many of his voters might say he can support some parts of Kim and not others. Because support is so obviously divisable.
  2. So Canada is a security risk because the U.S. might be tempted to invade us again. Joke or not that's really dumb.
  3. So players kneeling instead of standing in front of the flag, kneeling being pretty much as far as you can go in showing respect and deference = unpatriotic. The actual President of the United States not being able to remember the words to a song celebrating America during an event made to celebrate America = Probably not going to be considered unpatriotic at all. America's obsession with patriotism is fucking stupid but they could at least be consistent in their stupidity.

    U.S. Politics: He's an Idiot, Plain and Simple

    Would the cake have been significantly different than any other wedding cake? Even if so I don't consider that a very strong defence but virtually all wedding cakes are "custom" but aside from the plastic bride and groom, which I've never actually seen in any of the handful of wedding's I've been to, there's generally nothing to distinguish between wedding cakes. Google wedding cakes, look at all the different ones. Aside from again the ones with bride and groom on top there's no differentiating a gay wedding cake from a straight wedding cake. ETA: Oh and since he's hiding behind religion for his bigotry, I'll accept he hold these beliefs for religious reasons when he stones someone to death for working the sabbath. Until then he can fuck off. Religious reasons my ass.

    So what about the freedom not to be discriminated against? What about the freedom to not have the religious impose their values upon you?

    If you read that decision and thinks is supports freedom I don't know what to tell you.

    Every accusation that was used to start the Iraq war actually applies to the US so...

    American Princess

    Another odd quirk of the British royals, while the wives of Kings are titled Queen, whereas the husband of a Queen is the Prince Consort. So in general per my understanding of how the British Monarchy works. The reigning monarch is King or Queen, the wife of a reigning King can be a Queen, but the husband of a reigning Queen is not a King but Prince consort. The heir apparent is granted the title of Prince/ss of Wales, along with the title Duke of Cornwall, with their spouse getting the opposite titles. All the rest of the royal family are Prince/ss but their spouses are not, they are opposite number to the royal dukedom that their spouse has. All these dukedoms are honourary and just the title, with the exception of the ones held by the Monarch and heir apparent. Those come with actual duchies.
  9. Yeah boiling is too hot. In my experience water just after it reaches boiling burns the leaves and leaves you with bitter tea. Currently I let my kettle boil then leave it for a few minutes to cool before using it. Black teas can be made with water closer to boiling, but greens should be a little cooler.
  10. I like my tea with a splash of honey. I avoid tea bags and go with loose leaf. No particular preference on black vs green tea, but the prep is important. Don't want the water so hot it burns the leaves, but if it's not hot enough the tea cools down to fast for me to enjoy it. Right temperature is blend dependent which has made me want a kettle with a thermostat built in.

    So because the majority of fans of star wars are male wanting to be associated with it is a boys thing. That's fucked up. It's not really any different than passively rising above your station by virtue of being chosen by the force. At least being chosen by a princess/prince might be due to you.

    Shaak Ti and Aayla Secura would like a word mate.

    I mean at least they're fantasizing about something that's possible. I'm never going get to be a Jedi.

    Everyone here should be familiar with the Boots Theory of Socioeconomic Unfairness.

    Screw the banks

    Love all the useless "solutions" yep, the problem is totally that these people are out there spending tons of money on shit they don't need. Not that the bare fucking minimum is beyond them. But yeah, those stupid poor people wouldn't be poor if they just stopped going to restaurants. Jesus Christ.
  16. Yeah, gun laws did nothing in Australia. Didn't stop them from getting guns at all. And yeah it will take a while to have an effect. Guess what? Nothing will have an immediate effect on crime rates. Nothing ever does.
  17. It would allow you to reduce the total number of guns. Gun control would make obtaining them legally more difficult, which would reduce demand, less would be manufactured, and there would be less to end up in the black market. Therefore there would be less to use in crimes because you would have more guns leaving circulation than being added to it. Combine with some sort of program to actively take guns off the street and destroy them and you'll make an even greater impact. It'll be hard, but something being difficult isn't an excuse not to do it.
  18. No, you have it backwards. Criminals in Mexico gets guns from the US. It wouldn't be the other way around, because the US produces mass amount of guns. Mexico doesn't. The just don't, can't, produce enough guns to deal with US demand. I think you don't understand just how ridiculously huge gun manufacturing is in the US. in 2013 the US produced 10 million guns. Now I expect that number to have gone down cause the scary black man isn't in office anymore. But US criminals will never need to get guns from other countries.

    U.S. Politics; Who Watches the Watchers?

    In Bleach I watched Ichigo get cut through his side straight to his spine. He was fine like an hour later. Literally every character in DBZ has died at some point. Tons of characters in Naruto died and then were brought back to life. Character in One Piece, especially Zoro, suffer injuries that should permanently cripple, often this doesn't even stop them from fighting. Violence in Japanese media ignores consequences plenty. And as bad as Japan is dealing with mental health issues they sure as hell aren't going to bring up things like PTSD.

    US Politics: Follow the Money!

    Isn't that murder? Pretty sure that's murder not just health care fraud. Also all this time Republican's have warned again "death panels" in public healthcare. So of course there's a private healthcare organization doing exactly what they warned about.
  21. The answer is to eliminate escape routes... Jesus fuck the stupid burns.

    What's decent about lying about how you feel about someone?

    You attributing far more thought to the joke than I gave it. I don't care about McCain. At all. I saw a opportunity to make a Harry Potter joke and I took it.

    He's splitting it into pieces like Voldemort. I'm not entirely convinced the cancer will kill him.
