  1. I love jokes. Coincidentally, I also love poems. Here is my favorite one. *clears throat* Roses are red Violets are blue I suck at writing poems Penis. That's all I've got.
  2. I'll send you a trumpet *player* along with it, since they're all jerks. Merry early Christmas to you!
  3. Actually, school here in georgia gets out may 25th. I'm in color guard, so I have band camp all summer. Yaay.

    Osama is gone.

    Osama dead, no troops lost, quick burial at sea according to Islamic tradition... Something's a bit fishy here if you ask me. I'm usually the very last one to shout "conspiracy!" but I have a feeling that Obama's leaving something out here. Imo he's probably not actually dead. The U.S. probably has him in custody somewhere.
  6. As much as I would love to be the chick sitting behind her computer screen to come up with the solution to world hunger, I don't think that I'll try that one. Quote: Can you qualify this statement in any way? They have hot guys and rice.

Sounds good! Nah, just kidding. We actually have a proven system to accomplish that. 1. Take food. 2. Find hungry people. 3. Give hungry people food. 4. Repeat. Quote: Here's the problem. While I can understand this kind of "set our own affairs in order first" type of thinking, the fact is, the percentage of people in the US in real, serious need of food, that would stave if they did not receive aid, is vastly in terms of number and percent than numbers in other countries. North Korea, for instance, is a country where millions would literally starve to death if we stopped sending them food aid. Farm subsidies < millions dead. Can't argue with that one. I'm just too lazy to argue with the rest.

Plus, it's easy to score high on the HDI when you're a tiny country with a very homogeneous and xenophobic population, like many high-scoring European countries are (Switzerland, for example). While the US may be somewhat xenophobic, we're certainly neither small nor homogeneous, so we tend to have problems ensuring that our citizens have thigh highest standard of living possible, because the government has decided that some things are more important than that, like security and infrastructure and so forth. Good point, though according to definition a country's HDI is measured by life expectancy, literacy, education and standards of living compared to countries worldwide. A country's size doesn't affect these things too much, perhaps resource wise though. Japan has technology that we won't hope to see for years here in America, yet they're small. But also, Cambodia is small too and fairly under developed. Perhaps if we didn't spend a crapload of money sticking our nose into other country's buisness, we'd have a higher standard of living. I know that sounded harsh, but we have homeless and starving people right here, I don't think we can afford to spend money on other countries right now. The US actually gives away extra food to other countries (not saying this is a bad thing, just inefficient) when we have to subsidize our farmers. Just a thought!
  10. Moral #2: Google is your best friend. For future reference, most walkthroughs mention how to do the little things if you utilize search engines.
  11. Imo, I'm american and I still don't think we're the bomb-dot-com. Most European countries actually surpass us in technology and are higher are the human development index scale. I don't think the US has much on China anyways.

  13. Sometimes I feel like the only weirdo who is in high school, but still haves my friends drive over to frolic in the snow with me. Please tell me that I'm not the only one so that I can redeem myself. D:
  14. Wow sharx, you're still here? *applauds* I miss your fanfic!

    Secret forums

    My philosophy is, If 2 people know about it, It's no secret. Same thing with oral secrets, not smart.
  16. Just thought I'd point out that not all things are as universal as others...such as different power chargers for laptops, or even USB cables for digital cameras.
  17. I stayed inside like a loser and handed out candy. I've never been trick or treating before,and it seems pretty silly to me. I loved hearing little kids say "Twick owr Tweet!" in their bunny costumes. Priceless, man.
  18. Since I've helped contribute to the destruction of this thread, let's fix it, shall we? One would have to buy the game, ($20) Choose subscription plan, ($15 for monthly, $14 for a 3 month plan, $13 for a 6 month plan) This would end up as about 70 dollars a year, more or less. And because of one's tendency to become addicted to online gaming, this would end up being very, very expensive for a number of years. Which brings us back to the initial topic.

  22. But oh! The almighty loves his children equally, crappy dumplings or not! Unless they happen to belong to me. In which case he would bring an eternal rain of dumpling and saliva unto the earth.

  24. Well, of course not, since combat operations still moved on afterwards. But to be technical, war could mean alot of things. War is defined by Mirriam Webster as "(1) : a state of usually open and declared armed hostile conflict between states or nations (2) : a period of such armed conflict" "Armed hostile conflict" meaning the war isn't over until the guns are down.
  25. Oh? Interesting indeed, I didn't take the time to take a look at the graph. >.<
