Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I know it's not (quite) legal, but sites like VoteSwap (I think that was what one of them was called) allowed Naderites to vote for Nader in their communities when it was all but known that that district would go to Gore, swapping with a vote for Gore in a community that was assuredly going to Bush. What I'm getting at is that you can't count all of those 3% as having been taken from Gore, because some went to Nader while the Electoral College vote still went to Gore. I would guess that at least 1% of the votes that went to Nader went this way. Source: I did it in San Diego County in 2000.
Forcing your kids to view PP presentations is child abuse.
My favorite use for LSD is tripping balls.
Hey, you gotta admit, Hitler killed Hitler, so he wasn't ALL bad.
A unicorn, if it were to exist, would be observable to someone. It would seem reasonable to suggest that something as large as a unicorn would probably have been observed at some point by a reliable person in recent times.
This is a wild-assed assumption.
Hey, why don't I just say, a unicorn that exists outside of our universe and does not want to be observed is inherently unobservable, so it is unreasonable to suggest that if one existed it would probably have been observed.
Rabel is the organizer, not one of the debaters. He's as douchey as Haught, the guy who lost, but he's not the guy making threats. Did...you...R?...TFA?
He doesn't have time to add commas, because he's too busy saving us!
It just don't pay to post.
For all intents and purposes, "whom" is no longer a word. That raises the question, "Who cares?"
/ Whom is still a word.
Oh, wait, wrong website. My bad.
I agree with you in theory, but I have to disagree with the number "million". If you actually believe it's better to let a million guilty people go free than convinct one innocent person, we might as well not even have court or justice systems and just live in anarchy, because there is no possible way to do anywhere near those numbers.
Would you feel the same way if you were the innocent person in the example? Or one of your kids?
The Due Process model, in my opinion, is eminently preferable to the Crime Control model (see Herbert L. Packer), but it is hard to understand for those who have trouble taking the role of the other.
Are we talking money, or just a large stock of zit cream and porn?
You do know that you can get porn for free now, right?
