You've got to understand: it's unlikely I'll watch this.

OK, troll on, then.

The real pleasure is watching the usual suspects melt down.

I presume I am not one of the "usual suspects" - or if I am, you are getting no pleasure from me. Who, then, would they be in this case? You don't really expect this to somehow shame President Lawnchair into voluntarily aborting his presidency while he is on the victory lap of his last 19 months, do you?

I haven't seen any indication of it including the damning email that was sent from President Lawchair - copied to Hillary Clinton, of course - that authorized the terrorists to make the attack on Benghazi so that President Lawnchair could reap huge political gains. You'll likely therefore file it under "fiction".

On top of that, if it only covers 13 hours from the first bullet, it won't include the SoS initial description as that came more than 13 hours out.

But we can't let those pesky facts get in the way of your favorite conspiracy.

Furthermore your constant state of goalpost-moving - particularly the fact that you are able to support your team in part but anyone of any other team must support their team 110% of the time - is again noted.

Is that like when you try to typecast #OccupyResoluteDesk to "conservative", or do you have some other meaning in mind?

No. There is no goalpost moving or assignment of blame when I point out that President Lawnchair has secured an executive record as the most conservative president in the history of our nation to date. It is simply a direct observation of what has actually happened thus far.

It's a bit hard to get outraged at MSFT when GOOG has been doing the exact same thing for the last three or four Android versions.

Hmm. I point out some of the failings in your conspiracy and you attack me; that somehow makes your conspiracy stronger? Interesting.

As for "abject cretins", you haven't shown any reason why yours are better than mine. Furthermore your constant state of goalpost-moving - particularly the fact that you are able to support your team in part but anyone of any other team must support their team 110% of the time - is again noted.

Journal Journal: Benghazi Conspiracy Summarized in Four Words 9 9

Conspiracy propagators tend to love bumper stickers. This bumper sticker is stricken with nearly more problems than words, though.
  • It claims that what was told was known at the time to not be true (ie, the definition of a lie)
  • It claims the wrong order of events (it would be essentially impossible to lie about something before i

That's not destruction of property, that's maintenance of property. Want a better analogy than the soccer ball? If your neighbor parks in your driveway without permission you can probably have him towed. What you can't do is take a 9 Iron to his headlights.

No, that would still be destruction of property. The fact that it's on your property does not give you the right to destroy it. If the neighbor's kid kicks a soccer ball over your fence does that give you the right to slash it with a knife before you return it to them? Of course not.

Comment Would five dollars do it? (Score 1) 550 550

I think I can rummage that much up for this site. Given what I've seen around here lately I would expect $5 would cover the expenses of this site for everything but the web hosting costs (which shouldn't be awful considering how few people still read this site). I could probably get the other users to kick in $5 each as well, as we could really have a party.

Or do we have to buy sourceforge in the same purchase as well? That is actually worth something. We might need a banker.

... we still can't get competent editors at slashodt. Certainly there must have been someone who minored in English or Journalism who could take care of these atrocious front-page grammar and readability issues? I've seen better writing in comment sections of code written by people who learned English as a third or fourth language.
