This was an awesome idea, Krunchdog!!!!

Let's place bets on how long we can make THIS thread last before we get muzzled.


Grrrrrrrrrr.

I propose an Official Spanish Inquisition Revival. Bounty on the head(s) of the Shoutbox Naysayer(s).

I got dibs on playing Torquemada.

We WILL get you, my pretty.

Kidding, of course. I can fit WAY more awful crap in a post than in the Shoutbox! And the Shoutbox wouldn't load pictures of my naked self anyway.

Oh, on that matter. For those of you who already have some, I'd like to buy them back. PM me.

Ummm, statistically, that would impede only 40% of all men.
You should consider other co-factors.

Edit: In truth, the only thing you'd be considering after 4 hours is a lidocaine injection and some dilaudid. Having ANY friends come see it after 4 hrs. would only be so that someone other than yourself can help you recall what it used to look like.

That is a sad commentary on the state of the media these days. Haven't seen the video yet, but I understand they play a little loose with the timelines and what is going on. Koney was driven out of Uganda a number of years ago and is now a problem mostly in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

I believe he was almost killed in the Congo two years ago.
Posted by: Murph

Re: The Official Shoutbox Thread - 03/09/12 08:16 AM

It's a great example of how social media can be influential and invoke positive change.

However, child soldiers are a big problem in many countries of the world and while I applaud this effort to remove one leader, I hear many people discussing this video as if he is the only one in the world performing such a travesty when there are many countries where it is not only common, but even socially accepted.

Hopefully it will result in not only Koney's downfall but also a much better appreciation of the global issue.

If you are interested in another first hand look at the situation from someone who has witnessed the results, I highly recommend reading Romeo Dallaire's book.
They fight like Soldiers, They Die Like Children
It's not for the feint of heart but then again neither is the reality.

I had the pleasure, no honor, of hearing Mr. Dallaire do a speech on leadership in the non-profit sector that was based upon his experiences that he describes as his failed attempts as Force Commander of Unimar to try and stop the genocide in Rwanda. Obviously there is no comparison between the work as a non-profit leader in Canada and the situation in Rwanda but his speech centered around the psychological challenges of being a leader in general. When put into perspective of the challenges and mental anguish he endured (to the point of admitted attempted suicide upon his return.) then it really sets a perspective that can not be ignored.

Oops a bit off topic here but obviously I count Mr. Dallaire as a personal hero of mine and I believe both his books, the above plus Shake Hands with the Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda should be read by everyone who enjoys life in a free and democratic nation.

The revolution in Miranmar was led, in part, by two 13 year old twins.

In the places you are discussing, life expectancy is rather short, so you've got to kill a lifetime's worth of people and make as many babies as possible when you're still a juvenille.

Re: The Official Shoutbox Thread - 03/09/12 04:01 PM

There's more to the Kony2012 video. Upon further research I've found there has been a lot of dissent surrounding the movement as a whole. I personally questioned the military intervention aspect, but this is only one objectionable piece of a much bigger puzzle.

It's easy to get sucked in when a video "pulls" at your emotions; I did. I question most everything, but the video got the better of me because there were children involved. It turned me from a libertarian socialist that abhors war and military intervention, to someone with a knee-jerk reaction supporting it. Don't get me wrong, I believe that military intervention can be just (after all other peaceful means have been exhausted), but there is one fundamental principal, and that is the people have to overwhelmingly agree to it-in this case the people of Uganda-and this definitely doesn't seem to be the case.

It's incontrovertible that Kony needs to be captured and brought to justice, but this will accomplish very little as it's a systemic problem in impoverished countries with corrupt president's and other curable contributing factors. The Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni-whom is a great friend of the U.S.-is wanted on war crimes...

If you read the articles and watch the video below (even do further research), it may change your view. It changed mine.

Given that both the Ugandan and US Military have been actively hunting him down for a number of years, I don't know what a video will accomplish other than wider recognition of this man and perhaps the issue of child soldiers.

The reason Koney is largely in the Congo is because of its vast jungles and failed government. It is rather hard to find an kill someone without the cooperation of the local government and a more friendly terrain.

Spent yesterday up in the Muskokas, an absolutely beautiful day. Summer is coming quickly to Southern/Central Ontario this year. We weren't too far from Axiom, relatively speaking, but didn't really have time to drop in and say "Hi" (not sure if the plant was open on Saturday or not). Anyway, we bought a nice boat in Bala, the main reason for the trip (at a great price) and then went over to Muskoka Lakes Winery and sampled some of their award winning Cranberry and Blueberry wines smile . Afterwards we had lunch and coffee at the foot of the falls in Bala, just beautiful.

Hey, an opening to make fun of both our heritages at the same time....

Spanish singer Alejandro Sanz was on television when he used the word 'manana'. The host asked him to explain what it meant. Alejandro said that the term means "maybe the job will be done tomorrow, maybe the next day, maybe the day after that. Perhaps next week, next month, next year. Who cares?"

The host turned to Irishman Shay Brennan who was also on the show and asked him if there was an equivalent term in Irish. "No. In Ireland we don't have a word to describe that degree of urgency,".

OK, I know one of you did it. Maybe it was a conspiracy between or among you. Maybe you've hidden it in someplace you think no one will ever look, like inside your pants. If that's the case, I'll just have to let the medical examiner find it for me. When I DO get it back, I'm not telling the Canada geese, so maybe they'll sweat to death.

I'm sorry I deleted it, but a friend emailed me a picture of Bill Clinton today. In it, Bill was entering a large room, about to walk up the 3 steps to the podium, both arms in the air in two big, static "howdys," sporting a gigantic smile.

The caption read: Did somebody mention Columbian prostitutes?

And while we're in the cocaine capital of the Milky Way with our best and brightest, I have a serious math problem I need help with. Well, OK, it's arithmetic. However...

There were 10 Secret Service agents (How come we don't refer to them as the SS?) and 11 military personnel. That makes 21. There were 20 women involved. I can't do fuzzy math, but I think there's still a problem.

Posted by: BobKay

Re: The Official Shoutbox Thread - 04/19/12 07:19 PM

Let's see. Poems can take any form. The form for a limmerick (still, a type of poem) is etched in stone.

It is always as follows:

There once was a man from_______ (Rhyme A)
Who used to go dancing in________ (Rhyme A)
When he got up to_______ (Rhyme B)
His his legs went_______ (Rhyme B)
And everyone pissed in their______ (Rhyme A)

5 lines, rhyme scheme A/A/B/B/A

EDIT: There really oughtta be a limmerick thread.
And in contemporay times, they're usually schmutzig.

Gee, Ken, that kind of behavior for that kind of "reward" makes you a lot more like me than you'd like to admit.

I often wore clothing that irked others. Some advice: if you choose the day carefully in advance, you can get a lot more mileage outta your rayon shirt (or paisley chaps). Why are Hawaiian shirts always something other than cotton anyway?
Posted by: Ken.C

Re: The Official Shoutbox Thread - 04/20/12 09:29 AM

A couple of mine are cotton. They're not Hawaiian, per se (I've only got one of those, as of last night), though.

Thank you for Saturday, Peter. Awesome.

I'll keep my promise for today. Does anyone want to request a limmerick topic before I begin to compose? Careful, I DO have boundaries you know! OK, so they're magnetospheric. Whatever.

Thanks for the suggestion, Chris. Nice way to avoid my invitation for you to take me out for a $200 dinner.

It's not that it's too easy, but there'd be footnotes necessary for the sanctimonious. Footnotes and limmericks? Unheard of!

I was kinda hoping that someone would misinterpret "topic" and head straight for nominations.

Hey Bob,

I didn't mention anyone's name, I certainly didn't want too enter into any conspiracy plot or anything like that. If anybody asks, I'll tell them I don't know anything. Bob, if later on you start taking on some heat, and feel like you might be needing an attorney, let me know I might be able to find you one. Just specify though if you want one living or dead. With the prices they charge though, you might want to chose the later. LOL smile

The power company has some guys in my neighbor's backyard this morning working on the power box back there. Hoping this means that we won't have as many outages any more. Not holding out a great deal of hope that we'll make it through this storm without an outage, though.

Wonder if I can get any dry ice around here.

Prayers and well-wishes go out to the teachers today. One of them told me recently that November 1st is always the worst day of the school year. The kids always stay up past their bedtime the night before and come in either on a sugar crash from a night gorging or a sugar buzz from sneaking treats for breakfast.

We never get kids thanks to our very rural road combined with our long dark lane. We buy treats every year though. You know... just in case. By about 10:00ish we realize that "someone has to eat them."

Re: The Official Shoutbox Thread - 11/01/12 01:39 PM

Sounds very familiar, Murph.

For us, it's that we live in an area that is otherwise Doctor's offices, schools, etc. Not a lot of homes.

When we first bought the house, I was excited to be one of those people that really go all-out on Halloween. I made a black cardboard cutout of a person with a big knife, and attached it to the window with a variable strobe light behind it to look like lightning. I put speakers in the window and played a custom-made spooky tape. I wanted to (but didn't get the chance) to replace the sample portraits in the studio with portraits of zombies and such. I wanted to swap out all the tracklight bulbs in there with green ones. I was pricing fog machines.

I'm still disappointed that all of that would be in vain.

It's not a political poke. It's an illustration of how problems aren't dealt with (anywhere). Your attempt to silence is exactly my point. This is a big problem.

The media is now doing the same thing i.e. silence in respect for the deceased.....don't question things....it's disrespectful....we need a cool down period....

Re: The Official Shoutbox Thread - 12/14/12 10:26 PM

Cam, "just another gun day in the u.s. of a." and your references to Saudi women are not even credible ways to start yet another divisive debate.

If you want to honestly talk about causes of violence, or mass shootings or gun rights, fine. Just don't expect anyone to take you seriously when your opening salvo is so utterly lacking in compassion and context.

I think we need gun reform in my country. And I am horrified and, yes, surprised by today's events. Your only references thus far are pretty blatantly anti-American. I want to heal and make things better. Your incessant penchant for bashing America is tired, and counterproductive to civil and respectful discourse.

Sorry, no basketball whipping, but now we have stories of organized crime types with suitcases full of cash wandering the neighborhood where the video was shot offering to buy it. I'm waiting for the 'concrete shoes' episode of the Rob Ford show.

In order to understand the arrogance, one has to know the history of this clown. He is one of four children from a very rich family whose father was in politics as well and quite well known in the area and prior to being elected mayor, Rob was a local councillor who appealed to the masses originally because he came across, especially to the large volume of immigrants, as just "one of the boys". Three out of the four offspring(obviously, him as well) have had drug and substance abuse problems in their lives. It was also quite well known that while in high school Rob was a drug dealer along with himself and his brother being a pair of the school bullies, so none of this really comes as a surprise. Intimidation and ridicule in his office now coming out from ex-staffers just adds to the character that he already was.

It is the old adage "a leopard never changes its spots".
Once a punk always a punk, he just happens to come from a "well-to-do" family who have protected him along the way.
The screws now are, however, tightening on him and something will happen soon.

Well, that's the story he's selling. There are more than one fiscal conservative on Toronto city council. I find it hard to believe he is the best, or even capable of leading the charge. He certainly is good at saying BILLIONS!!

The Star had a good breakdown of the claimed vs actual savings. He has pushed the city in a more responsible fiscal direction, but there will be a lot of fallout from his time as mayor.

I hope for Toronto's sake that John Tory decides to run for mayor.

In some ways yes, however, in other ways he is taking credit for stuff he had nothing to do with, in fact, he took credit for the cities' recent 250 mill. surplus, despite the fact that the bulk of that surplus was generated from a real estate fee implemented by the previous administration that was at the top of his list to eliminate as soon as he was elected.

Agree on the first point.

The Star is a poor source where politics are concerned. They basically gave McGinty a free pass on anything he did when he was premier yet were trying to undermine Ford from the moment he became mayor. Everyone knows where the Stars politics are aligned.

John Tory would be a better choice, but has stuck his foot in his mouth, big time, in the past.

Ford's latest quote is better than I could have ever dreamed we'd catch a person in public office saying during a live media conference. It's like he hired Seth Macfarlane to be his speech writer.

Even after removing the objectionable word in respect for the Axiom board keepers, I'll still put in a spoiler button with a warning it's offensive language. Still, it's just so completely unbelievable. He's either completely lost it or he's looking to publish later.

Yeah, the Star has a bias. That does not make their numbers wrong. It is funny to see how the Star seems to choke on any admission that Ford (or more correctly the Ford administration) actually has made some progress.

Well, Cam, it's been more than 72 hours without a public response at all, let alone a "nay." I'd say you're good to go.

BTW, How many beds/baths? One or two stories? What part of Peterborough? frpl? hdwd fls th-out? d & d, any WTW? Sq. ft? Parking? Yard? How far from schools? Etc., etc.?

Well, here it is - linky.

I never thought I would get so emotional when my parents put it up for sale. I knew it was coming, but it still really sucks. It's a beautiful place to live. I wanted to keep it as a cottage (it is in the heart of cottage country) but it's just not feasible.

Re: The Official Shoutbox Thread - 04/07/14 07:39 AM

I did see that Cam. Although just yesterday. I rarely go into Facebook anymore but yesterday I was pretty, 'clears throaght' tired after a very late night out for the ECMAs East Coast Music Awards. So I needed something mindless during to do for a while.

It sounds like a beautiful spot. I can imagine the memories there would be like postcards.

I went through the same thing when my parents sold our house. Beautiful, 3 story, century home that my Dad bought for an absolute steal (we were just a shade above poor at the time.) Since he was a kid, he had been spending a lot of his time doing all the handyman work for the three ancient sisters who lived there. They barely paid him ('barely paid us' as I got old enough to cut the grass, paint, etc.) but it paid off in the end as he was practically handed over of the nicest houses in town.

I remember talking myself out of buying it. It was too far from work, especially for Sharon who did shift work as a nurse at the time and I knew heating it was like a mortgage all of it's own. Still, it was home I'm hoping it's still around and goes for sale if I ever retire.

It is a monstrous release to say such horrible things to or about people you actually like and respect---or even people for whom you have no feelings at all, but I wouldn't publicly say that about Mark and Tom, well, not here, in this post.

Seriously, Cam & Murph, it must be a drag to see the family home get sold. And both of you have very tightknit families, just like the old Irish clans that you don't know you still belong to. It was where you grew up and learned how to do bad things and not get caught. That alone must make it dear to you.
(Now THAT sentence, I DO mean!)

Jack, I was adopted outta foster care and couldn't have gotten luckier. My sister (also adopted) and I had over 40 cousins. We knew as school children that each of our parents was the glue in their families (7 for Mom, 5 for Dad), and that we got the best of the lot. We were the only ones to go to college and grad school. Lucky, indeed!

They were always supportive and encouraging, academically and otherwise. They lived with a rock band in the bsmt for 4 years.

Most of all, they provided me with a firm foundation from which to launch my fake attacks w/o notice! Thanks for asking.

Edit: Before anyone goes thinking all "Bostony and Beacon Hilly," I grew up in a blue collar 'hood. My Mom took in sewing and my Dad opened the doors on the subway.
Ahh, from such humble beginnings to this! Pathetic, pathetic.

Where I grew up, if you weren't being made fun of by your friends, it meant that you better look out because you must have pissed them off.

It was kind of the ultimate, passive aggressive society. We were only polite to strangers, elders and people we didn't like. As long as you were still getting hit with sarcastic zingers, you knew you were good with your friends. If they were being nice to you, it was a form of exclusion.

Wow. I have been ignoring the Shoutbox thread since way back when the Shoutbox went away.

Funny thing about this. AlaskanAVGuy has truly been trying to make a lot of friends lately by showing his "love" for people not just here, but same tone over on AVS, and I stumbled (ok, not really *stumbled*) across the same type of pissy tone over at HomeTheaterForum as well. He must have a LOT of friends now. Interesting that the accounts are all just a couple of weeks old and he has made so many new friends.
