Comment Re:dont want it to taste like meat (Score 1) 317

What's the actual union of people who don't want to kill animals for dinner but are also pissed off that their dinner then doesn't taste like animals? It seems like those people are just impossible to please. Yes, your dinner doesn't taste like meat. That's what you signed on for there, buddy!

I think the union is pretty small. I've been a vegetarian for 35 years. I hate the meat substitutes that taste like meat. I don't want to think I'm eating meat.

,,,are Geeks.

They would like to be, but lack the essential 'hacker' mentality required to Be a Geek.

Most of them are unimaginative morons, although highly educated.

A highly educated moron is easy to achieve with modern education; they can calculate something without any understanding whatsoever.

In other news, there are No True Scotsmen.

I think that's the main reason I can't watch that show, and to this date haven't watched a full episode yet. Every time I hear the laugh track I want to gag. What is this, 1965? If they're going to do it that way, at least have a live studio audience like Married with Children had that actually responds appropriately to what's happening when it's genuinely funny.

Um, they do have a live studio audience

Wait a moment. There's at least EIGHT people who appear twice in that photo, and it's not a simple stitch together either. Check it out. Definitely the "live studio audience" isn't all that it's made out to be.

The pictures were taken on "Bring your identical twin and sit away from them" day.

"Gun free" is not intended to be a message to criminals. .

It may not be intended as a message to criminals but it is most definitely interpreted as one. Hey look easy pickings, is the message they read.

You seriously misunderstand mass shootings if you think "easy pickings" is the criteria used for site selection. Look at history - it's places where people have a grudge for some reason - employment, schooling, girls, whatever.

Do not underestimate the value of print statements for debugging.
