  1. For a family not known for intellectual achievements, this is not surprising at all.

    Literature Of Old: Plutarch, Appian, Herodotus

    I have the feeling that Aristophanes may have been teasing his audience by creating a mock sexual position that would leave them wondering what they were missing out on. The man was a comedian.
  3. Especially if it was the pizza parlour where the Clintons supposedly based their child sex ring.

    There are only a limited number of ways to do the deed. I imagine it was something men enjoyed more than women did.
  5. Memo to self. When in the mood to trash someone's literary efforts, stick to SA literature. SA being Senile Adult.

    Giving him time to have his Nixon tattoo removed? I hate to think what that would trigger when he is in the communal shower in prison.

    I have also interacted with what I suspect was an AI that somehow managed to find this forum. Much fun was had by the spectators as I attempted to explain a joke that made an allusion to oral sex.

    It is hard for a guy like McBigski, and Trump also. Promises were made. serious promises by peope who you thought had your best interests at heart. And then despite all the promises, you find yourself with a mouthful of salty goo. What can one do but swallow it?

    There is always money in the cult of Larry. Just like there is always money in the banana stand.

    Important topic totally in need of its own thread

    Sounds like a game I played called Crazy Eights.

    U.S. Politics: Attaquer son cul orange!

    Scientific American, in their November issue has an interesting article on the mathematics of wealth accumulation. Even with people starting out as equals in terms of wealth, chance plays the most important part in who ends up rich and who ends up poor. There is no 'superior business acumen' that separates the winners from the losers in a fair game. In probability theory what is known as a Markov chain shows the inevitability of anyone who has more wealth than average, needs no more than average competence to accumulate more wealth strictly due to chance. Casinos rely on this to know how much money to have on hand to guarantee that if you play the house long enough you will walk away with empty pockets. Wealth accumulation follows the same mathematical rules. That being said, redistribution of wealth does tend to happen, either through taxes to fund social programs or through hanging the oligarchs from lamp posts and then redistributing the wealth.

    This would be funnier still if he did the show from prison.
