  1. Case debate strengthens your off-case positions, anyhow...
  2. Probably, and I was a bit distracted at the time I was watching the MSNBC story, so I likely misheard an anchor.
  3. Ankur, I saw on MSNBC earlier that the Euro has been weakening, as well (I also saw this on the CNN ticker) due to 3.6% monthly inflation last month. That puts the Euro at an all-time weak point against the dollar, IIRC. Do you know anything about this? Let me search for the article and edit my post with the article in it. If I can't find it in 15 minutes, though, it'll wait till after the debate. EDIT: That didn't take long at all. Here's the NYT's take. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/01/business/worldbusiness/01euro.html?_r=1&oref=slogin

    O M F G This is so intense. I'm a tad nervous right now.
  5. Saying "Subjectivity is bad because objectivity is good" is pretty circular. If an aff team was going to go for reasonability (it's been done), they'd beat that argument into the ground. You need to explain up front why objectivity leads to a better decision than providing leeway and room for debate.
  6. She'd be a far better president, for sure. She knows how to deal with three factions (Dems, small-L libertarians, and right Republicans) in a legislature, she can win in a red state, and she is an excellent manager. Saving taxpayers a shit ton of money by changing the way we do paper clips is simply incredible.
  7. I was compelled to giggle when the aid worker drove up to a bunch of Africans and told them all they had to do to cure their AIDS was inject all their cash. Funny as hell.
  8. I had no idea that AJ Mandt gave half a shit about video games. That said, a very interesting article. Is there any larger body of work on the topic?
  9. idk I got it with my SNES for Christmas when I was little... I think '92?
  10. I'll start off with a classic: Trivium - Pull Harder on the Strings of your Martyr, by Paranoidave
  11. Vader - The Ultimate Incantation Ayreon - The Human Equation Kreator - Coma of Souls In Flames - The Jester Race Kalmah - Swampsong
  12. It's asinine to insist that LoG is less hardcore and more metal, though.
  13. ZOUNDS that's a biting criticism.
  14. Well, it looks like this is the only discussion going on in here right now, so I'm game. I don't know about your claim that anyone can be great at music with proper training, or with enough time, or with enough dedication - or any combination thereof. I was trained in piano from the time I was 3 until I turned 16. And I was always terrible at it. Same with singing. Some people, in my estimation, simply have no musical talent. For another example, see Vanilla Ice. EDIT: To the jackhole who decided to neg rep me for "trippel posts," there were plenty of posts in there, from Burns.
  15. I guess it's just a way to let those of us who will never be a Jeff Loomis or a John Petrucci feel like a rock star.
  16. Emission taxes would probably garner a pretty sweet mixed-economy (which is part of what has treated us so well over the last three quarter-centuries) advantage.
  17. Yeah, well do you remember that time you only ate boxes of tangerines?
  18. Well if you have the console already it's a hell of a lot cheaper than even going out and buying an acoustic starter guitar. It's also got a more friendly learning curve than actual guitar, and it's just a flat-out fun game to play.
  19. You never really struck me as a Regina Spektor fan, Chris.
  20. sup Who's getting the Aerosmith expansion? And who's managed to beat Lou on expert?
  21. Well, just as long as you're aware. btw Keith Moon is still alive, and he's living on an island in Bermuda with Elvis.
  22. Has anyone ever told you, Shu, how prominently your age shows? jk, obv
