Oh so mature
Oh so mature
Microsoft Intellimouse Explorer mouse. It's the best mouse I've ever used, I'm not sure why Microsoft ever went away from the design. Clearly by the price, they are still highly sought after.
That is another one I never pass up at Goodwill or St. Vinnie's, the 3.0 and the 4.0 especially. Those are also consistent resellers for me.
I still have an old ball-mouse that's coming up on 22 years and still working.
My oldest ball mice still work fine as well, several Apple IIGS mice, a few Commodore 1350 mice, a 1351 or two, and a Tandy mouse (which has a bigass steel ball that a much younger me would have been tempted to use as a steelie in the marbles arena back in grade school).
Just as a heads up, if you ever come across used working MS Trackball Explorers, either wired or wireless at a good low price, yoink em. Those are like gold apparently. Your inner Jawa will not be disappointed.
Spaceballs are even better, but i don't think they are made any longer, and they were a lot more expensive than a good trackball.
Those tend to deplete your air supply though.
I use laptop with touchpad. What is this "mouse" of which you speak?
I found the touchpad to be too annoyingly oversensitive, so I prefer to use a good old wireless Logitech Trackman Marble T-RA18 with mine. I was surprised at how quickly I took to using a trackball.
On my gaming rig though, I am rather fond of my Logitech G300, and really should shop around for a spare just in case this one ever bites the dust...spaaaaaace cadet...
The population might, but our government thinks they still do.
Our government and their owners think they still do.
Oh. I did take a peek at the links for the Mayflower Compact, and the Declaration of Independence, and noted the acknowledgement of religious based stuff in those. I simply felt there was no need to discuss those since your point on those two were clear (remember, if it goes without saying, there is no need to say it).
The bit about the preamble was the only one that needed addressed, considering there was nothing religiously bent in that section of the Consitution. That was all, nothing more.
The Jews with true Jew-fu have 613 commandments, though they do overlap with the reduced-commandment-set religions that were derived from them.
I thought it was Jew-Jitsu
Or for Krusty the Clown, it's Jew-Doh!
Ironically, the CAPTCHA is "demonaic".
Is jewdough another name for unleavened bread?
Just remember, Christians are so poor, they can only afford one god.
The Romans have a god for everything, except premature ejaculation. But we hear that one is coming soon.
This is another one a lot of people get wrong; the Commandment is actually, "Thou shalt not have any Gods before me." So basically, it's OK to be polytheistic, so long as you consider the Abrahamic God as the top tier; your Zeus or Odin, as it were.
Ignorance is the problem, not faith in and of itself. And that's a two-way street.
This one can be a bit confusing. Was not Yahweh part of a more extensive pantheon, with El as top banana? If so, would not El have been rather rightfully pissed that Yahweh was usurping its place in the hierarchy? Or is it possible, in Jewish mythology, that El gave Yahweh permission to form his own little cult of followers as some sort of cultural experiment?
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
People seem to take that as "Don't say goddammit" but vanity has to do with looking good. Ignoring the actual Hebrew wording, I think it means "don't pretend to follow me (take my name) just to look good in front of your neighbors or church."
It could also mean "Don't engage in bullshit and claim it is my will."
Prime example" "God told me that he would kill me if I didn't raise one million dollars by the First of April." (That was either Oral Roberts or Anal Roberts back in the late 80s or early 90s, if I recall correctly.)
> Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's...ass
Wow, so the Bible actually does prohibit homosexuality. I had no idea that it really did. I just thought the typical CONservative liars were just making-up crap again like they always do. They lie constantly and hate people that tell the truth. That's why they hate science and things like NASA.
My neighbor's wife is also my neighbor, and she has a pretty, shapely, and covetable ass at that.
It can have a forcing effect on things other than direct belief when it becomes part of the civil or governing code
You are many centuries too late. The 10 commandments and other religious moral codes are already seen as a basis for a lot of common law. Trying to tell yourself otherwise is ignorance. (Now that you've read this it's willful ignorance or self deception.. )
What are they teaching in public schools these days.. Shesh..
Start here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mayflower_Compact
And if you don't mind, the preamble to the constitution of the united states.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Not seeing anything religiously oriented in the Preamble there...
