I'm in for 11:30, if that works for Jim and Celt.

Just let me know if that is 11:30 Pacific, or if I need to make a time adjustment.


I don't want to get in the way of any mopping.

My friend, you couldn't if you tried, for I fully intend to CLEAN UP this evening. I shall WRING OUT every last pun until I am able to SOAK UP all of your concession speeches. Everyone should watch, as the contest will be highly ABSORBING. You will just have to SUCK IT UP and watch as I expel all of my opponents into the VACUUM of space. Yes, I am anticipating quite a DUST UP...


Breaking News! Angela has been rounded up by Anna of the Vs as a 5th column word master and Anna has thrown Angela in the PUNitentiary for an undisclosed amount of time. This is Chad Decker, saying, it doesn't look 11:30 tonight is going to happen after all. :(

I will post this a second time....

Brits are called Limeys because back in Elizabeth 1st days, sailors got scurvry on long sea voyages due to lack of fresh food with vitamin C. So they took barrels of limes on board to make up for it. Brits are also called Poms because in times past when they murdered someone, they would be banished from England and sent off to Australia. Pom stands for Prisoner of her Majesty.


I will post this a first time.
So, Brits are all sailors? All Brit sailors had scurvy? So, since limes didn't work, Elizabeth I sent them, as prisoners, to Australia, as original sinners and now all in Australia are scurvy infected sailors?

I doubt your short post or your longer posts would really explain why you bring it up or help anything.

Why mention the terms?

Repeating the slurs, with inadequate explanation of them and why it is silly to use them, keeps the slurs alive.

It was connecting "empire" and "empirical".

Using Google translate works sometimes very bad.
To much synonyms to handle.
Today I translated the Word "Huvudstad" English capital in a text and got Helsinki the capital of Finland!
And Swedish swearwords that are in a religious context to us become obscene in English.


I wasn't using Google.
In fact, after I posted, I used the reverse from the same service and got exactly the same thing you did. I figured you would understand most of it and then the small parts that came out ridiculous could be quickly clarified.

That was Quick:)
Here is what you mean.

Thor mun ríkja langan tíma á meðan hann er að upplifa.
Thor will reign for a long time while he is experiencing.
Thor må regera en lång tid medans han upplever.

Asatru er skemmtilegur "trú" og við sérstaklega eins Thor.

Lifi Thor.

Guess what?
99% of your posts go unseen.
More evidence you enjoy anti-discussing?
Seriously, as you said, these message board political discussions don't mean anything. What does it say, then, when you post so much?

Long may Thor reign over his empire while using empirical evidence!

I'm proud that you looked pasture fears, took the bull by the horns and didn't kowtow.

Yes, Ozz Fan is certainly no COWard!

Let me guess.
You found my response unthinking and silly.
Guess what?
I gave you what you wanted.
And you like to waste your time on anti-discussing such things.
P.S.-addressed months ago why I mention Koch Brothers. You want to throw Soros in every time? Sure, go ahead, what do I care? My ironic point is made, with or without him.

Thor, I know you exist! You speak to me! Surely, personal experience is evidence of existence???

það kallað eftir reynslunni vísindi!

Lifi Thor:)


Lengi getur Thor konungur yfir heimsveldi hans meðan reynslan!

Wow, I whistle and they come running! :)
P.S.-Clyde, when will you realize you're more cloistered? When will you realize I pushed no button? When will you realize I gave a prime example of why I do not fit the mold you think I fit? When will you realize that your posts represent the analytical level of 60 months?
Please, do demonstrate more of your "thinking" and "maturity" so that we can all do it right.
(Posting here isn't the pleasure you're looking for. You don;t want to sell us death sticks. You want to shut down your tablet and re-think your life and your posts.)

...

As most everyone who posts here is very far removed from the ghetto and attitudes of the ghetto it can be very hard to understand how much depression and lack of self worth is in that attitude. You might ask yourself why it was called the Great Depression and if that might have anything to do with the ghetto

...

Speak for yourself. I lived and worked in the ghetto for nearly 20 years. I had these issues up in my face on a daily basis.


Same here. I grew up in a neighborhood just a few steps above trailer-park trash. My mother always tried to give off the impression we were more well-off than we were. But I am quite familiar with the atmosphere and attitudes of the environment.


I'll one-up that. I grew up in a trailer park.
C'mon, Dull and Clyde, let's hear you now.

Oh, as to those Asians and their names, what the professor doesn't know, because it isn't on his roll sheet, is they mostly have Asian middle name(s). Their parents just chose to give their children a given name that will allow them success in the culture of the USA.


Because of privacy, I cannot list names of recent Asian students. But, in recent years, I have seen no sign of Anglicized names. And the last time an Asian student/colleague told me I could call him an Anglican name was over 10 years ago. Why call him Charles when Ling Ji (leeng gee) is easy to pronounce? I do my best to pronounce all names as correctly as possible: eastern European, middle eastern, Asian, Hispanic/Latino, etc. ... .

http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/U/US_DUKE_PROFESSOR_CRITICISM?SITE=AP&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- A Duke University professor criticized for an online post comparing blacks and Asians said Monday that it's not racist to discuss what he sees as differences in how the groups have performed in the U.S. over the past few decades.
...
In his online comments, Hough wrote that Asians have been described as "yellow races" and faced discrimination in 1965 at least as bad as blacks experienced. Of Asian-Americans, he wrote: "They didn't feel sorry for themselves, but worked doubly hard."

The posting goes on to say: "I am a professor at Duke University. Every Asian student has a very simple old American first name that symbolizes their desire for integration. Virtually every black has a strange new name that symbolizes their lack of desire for integration."

hmmm..I guess he is unaware of the fact that black americans had their african names stolen from the them because of slavery and were given white names by their white owners and took the slave masters surnames. This is why they make up their own names, its not about being different. Its about trying to regain some dignity after the forced assimilation of slavery.

The claim that one ethnicity is cleverer of stupider than anther has shown to be false on many occasions and any such claims are racist. What Asian students have is respect for teachers and education. Many black students have a justifiable distrust of the educational institutions and teachers. Its not something that is innate. It is due to history.


Furthermore, it's been a long time since I've had an Asian student telling me it's ok to use some English name for him or her. Certainly not in this past year or two.

There are some rare good reasons for changing names. When I was in 8th grade, the church I attended sponsored a family of Vietnames refugees (single mother and 2 boys a little younger than me).

Their first names were Dot and Phuc (pronounced fook). Think a moment and you can see why Don and Frank were suggested as replacements.

Moops
If that doesn't sum up this board ......... thanks for the laugh.

The bubble boy insisted it was the "Moors", but George said the card said "Moops".
Seriously, though, was there much interbreeding? Could this be a further source of prejudice against Hispanics?
