I love Hendrix.  As guitar players go he's up there with Jimmy Page, Eddie Van Halen, Jeff Beck and Skrillex in my esteem.

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: Should Mods Be Held to Higher Standard
« on: December 17, 2013, 06:11:35 AM »
Holding a mod to a higher standard is not oppressive.
It is too. See Roundy's testimony. His freedom of expression was restricted, and that's oppression.

I guess... But it was self-imposed.  I was never chastised for posting a certain way, I just chose to take what I considered to be a more responsible approach.  Obviously if the admins decide that the mods can post fuck-all that they want to it is not my place to object; I'm perfectly comfortable with Parsifal and pizaaplanet making that particular judgment call themselves.  Their forum, their rules.

I think Franklin was alluding to the fact that they have an uncanny ability to pull a rabbit out of their hat and win crucial games.

61 yards and the season on the line.  Jesus Fucking Christ.

But I think the Broncos are winning it all this year.  Seattle will probably get there but they will be without their most important weapon, a loud cheering section.

Some bitches need to relax. This is a forum about the Earth being flat. Chill the fuck out, it's not srs bzns.

Um, exsqueeze me?  How can a forum about something so important be anything but serious business?

I definitely agree that mods should be held to the same standards they expect of others.  Even higher, actually.  I am actually a model example.  Sure, I kid around sometimes, but on the old site, when I first became a mod my posting habits changed.  It was maybe not entirely visible (because you really only see what's there and gloss over what isn't) but I noticed it.  There have been times that I wanted to post something inappropriate, but didn't out of respect for the position I was entrusted with.  It was a sacrifice a small part of me always regretted, but just the same that I felt it only right that I make.

Based on what little you present it sounds utterly ridiculous.

Quite the entertaining little fantasy story.  I wonder how much NASA pays its writers to come out with top-notch drama like this.

If I may critique, I would put some kind of life-threatening obstacle in the astronauts' way, just to punch it up a bit.  But the way they're releasing the story slowly over time gives it just the right level of suspense; I may get that life-threatening situation yet, and the tension will be even stronger, since I wasn't expecting it.  I do suppose that NASA can't make their stories too exciting too much of the time, or they risk breaking the audience's suspension of disbelief (even as easy an audience as this proves to be, by definition, that is still a valid concern for them).  But a little bit of heroics is never a bad thing, and I question if the promise of a spacewalk will be enough to satisfy my thirst for adventure.  2.5 stars out of 5, but if they are able to wake me up a bit in the second act I may increase that grade.

Dude, have a day off.

Do you have any idea how much FE work and promotion she has done?

I support Secret User.  She's another one who was seriously slighted on John Davis's list.

Am I still allowed to express if I hate someone? Because I really hate Thork. Fuck him.
But I'm a really nice guy. You went on a walk with Thork before right? I'm a lovely sensitive man. I have issues of course, but being an oddball is the reason I fit in with all of you. :'(
Ya know Thork, you have started to win me over. I mean, you posted a song from the South Park movie on the .org site, and I giggled for a good five minutes about it.
Twats still didn't make me a mod though, did they? >:(

You don't deserve the power.  Ha ha ha.

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Gravity vs. Universal Acceleration
« on: December 09, 2013, 03:44:11 AM »
I'm not sure if universal acceleration exists.  All I know for sure is that from my perspective, things fall.  We can measure the rate at which these things fall.  It seems like idle speculation that leads to the conclusion that this is because we are accelerating upwards.  As for what it is, you can call it gravity if you like, but I'm not at all convinced that it's necessarily the same force that is responsible for the movement of the celestial bodies above us.  Believing that requires a leap of faith that I'm not prepared to take.

This might be too obvious, but I think that there ought to be some indication of whether the event of a specific date is to be celebrated or mourned.

Clearly, the burning down of Charles K. Johnson's house was an unmitigated disaster and tragedy and shouldn't be observed in the same manner as the bestowal of Rowbotham's degree.
Would a smiley suffice?

I like this idea.  I propose  :) for births,  :D for other significant positive events in the history of the FES,  :'( for deaths and catastrophic events in the FES's history, and either  >o< or  ;) for events dealing with NASA and the Conspiracy, depending on whether we want to convey our anger over their existence or their own cheekiness.

Accidents are unanticipated. If you have a set of laws that can predict the set of possible outcomes and each one in the set I s arrived at by a causal set of events then it would be an anticipated possibility.

So who anticipated it?

What did: the laws of physics.

How did an insentient concept anticipate something?
