I'm reasonably well-versed in Christianity
I smell a lie

but I wouldn't be able to go "Ah, yes, Luke 11:11-12 really speaks to me, y'know?" on the spot.
Are you saying you don't know any bible quotes off the top of your head? How is this possible?

 
Trump or you could have picked anything.

Honour thy father and thy mother.
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

Or he could have looked that interviewer in the eye and without blinking uttered ...
'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth'.
And then continued to stare at him.

But seriously, naming a bible verse is so bloody easy. Just pick one.

He's not rich, he's a half billion dollars in debt.
What is being rich?

Trump has a huge line of credit. He can buy things you could only ever dream of. He lives a life you could never afford ... despite you claiming to be half a billion dollars richer than him.

Trump understands taxes. You don't want to be making profits and handing it over to Uncle Sam. So make a half billion dollar loss ... borrow at nearly zero percent and then never pay tax again as you offset your loss over the next 20 years. The guy is a genius.

It's not only the game. Rushy also has a physical card saying he's been very scammed. Merchandise like that is invaluable.
No, you can put a price on it. I believe the going rate is $6000.  :o

Imagine spending $6000 on a computer game! Nay, some jpegs! Cyberpunk 2020 is going to cost $50. How did you imagine that this space game would be 120 times more enjoyable? Or that this one game would be worth 120 other AAA titles? Or that any computer game is worth $6000?

I'd want the developer to make me my very own Thork avatar for that, set the spaceport in my home town, name a galaxy after me, write the theme music as an Ode to Thork, send me a bunch of goodies like T-shirts, a leather flying jacket, a sports bag, a key chain and a custom joystick that matched the ship I purchased. I'd want a handwritten letter from Roberts thanking me for my support, a studio tour, a dedicated server and a celebrity to play against for an hour. A good celebrity. Not some shitty rapper I have never heard of. Kim Kardashian or Mark Hamill. I'd want my name in the closing credits, a star map poster for my wall, a selection of 4K desktop backgrounds for my computer, a Star Citizen ringtone, a custom mug, mouse mat and fridge magnet ... and I'd want $5000 in change!



A fool and his money are soon parted.  ::)

I think as both are basically PCs this generation, apart from the exclusive launch titles ... 95% of all titles will be x86 PC types that play on PC and play on both consoles. There is no red line exclusive must have game for me. I just don't need a new PC. The one I have has all the power I need for everything ...except games.

Sure, I can get a new GPU, but I have 27" AIO. It's a whole new computer and monitor from here.

I'm thinking xbox and a 48" TV from here. Clean, simple, TV, games, pron ... all in one place and do work from the place I already do it.

Whippets, Salukis and greyhounds are in a league of their own. They don't run like other dogs. They use a gait called double suspension gallop, used by other animals such as the Cheetah.
Quote from: https://www.pitpat.com/doggy-insights/canine-gaits-taking-off/
This is the fastest gait and it is classified as asymmetrical. It’s a four-time gait with suspension where all the legs are lifted off the ground. There are two types of gallop: the single suspension gallop and the double suspension gallop.

The single suspension gallop in dogs is a four-time gait. It’s an asymmetrical sequence where the dog achieves suspension. The single suspension gallop is used by all dogs.

The double suspension gait is a four-time, asymmetrical gait seen only in sight hound breeds such as the greyhound and whippet. This is the only gait where the dog achieves full extension with the front legs extended forward and the rear legs are extended rearward, the back flexes and arches with the rear feet extending in front of the front feet and the front feet extending behind the rear feet. In other words the rear feet overtake the front, meaning the dog is air born twice in each cycle. Despite the speed, this gait doesn’t offer much endurance. It is this gait that makes greyhounds and whippets so fast!

Those dogs vs any other dog is a no contest.


Which is why the claim Jack Russell's are faster is so laughable. The only way a Jack Russell is doing 35 mph, is in the mouth of a greyhound.

Hey @Toddler Thork, did you make your mind up on what you are going to do?
Not really.

I decided a console was the way to go and that I would get a new TV to go with it.

OK PS5 vs Xbox X?

It comes down to
PS5 - 36 compute units
Xbox - 52 Compute units

I want the xbox.

Now, where to buy one? ... oh, you can't. 🤬

I have a video of an Afghan hound (3rd) vs a whippet (7th).

When you see them line up, imagine the speed difference you think there will be and then watch the race.

The point is that he has his standard picking list of answers;

If he hasn't heard about, doesn't know about it, doesn't understand what he is asked, his go-to is

"We're looking at that very strongly"
"We're looking into that very deeply"
"I'll have an answer to that in a couple of weeks"

Yesterday it was UFOs, but my point is that the subject does. not. matter. Yesterday's was especially "out there", but it's the same tactic every time, and this one pointed it up more than most, precisely due to its "out there-ness".

If this is the worst of his lying crimes, choose Trump. Listen to the absolute rot that Biden comes out with.

Trump lies; thousands of them, as someone else wrote above.

Trump was asked on Fox yesterday "What about UFOs", and he replied "We're looking at that very strongly"
If you ask a stupid question, expect a stupid answer. I mean, a grown adult asking about UFOs? They're talking to the President on national TV. Ask about homelessness, military interventions, joblessness ... something important. What about UFOs? Yeah, sure, we're looking into it. ... That's the way you talk to a 5 year old, and if you reduce the conversation to that level, what do you expect? A serious answer? Does Trump have to reiterate that there aren't any aliens despite SETI wasting $billions to confirm as much? Its like asking him to condemn white nationalists. Has he not done that for at least 4 hours? He must have become a racist.  ::)

No way is his administration even giving a second thought to UFOs at the moment.
So why ask such a stupid bloody question? It got the answer it deserves.

You only want two or three?
1) https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2007/sep/27/joe-biden/biden-way-off-on-alcohol-related-birth-defects/
2) https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2016/may/09/joe-biden/joe-biden-misstates-daily-deaths-united-states-can/
3) https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2019/aug/09/joe-biden/joe-biden-takes-donald-trumps-words-about-gang-mem/

The first is merely quoting a mistaken figure, not outright lie.

The second is too; Biden quoted stats for the Americas as a whole, not the United States, and it was corrected once this was pointed out. Could easily have been staffer's mistake in compiling figures

The third is mere mis-statement, not outright lie, too.

"Biden said that Trump "asserted that immigrants would quote, ‘carve you up with a knife’." but Trump was talking about MS-13 gang members."  Trump still used the words that Biden quoted, merely in reference to a different group.
You literally excused every lie your candidate made. It doesn't matter what lies he tells. He can tell us that he got arrested trying to protest Mandela's imprisonment in a blatant and patronising piece of pandering to black voters. It is every bit as transparent as Hilary claiming she walks around with a bottle of hot sauce in her handbag. And you don't care. You're more interested that Trump didn't waste 20 mins debating aliens and instead wafted the question away.

#walkaway is picking up a lot of momentum.


I'll just leave this here. Maybe someone like Lord Dave or Roundy will come to their senses. Or maybe they will continue to support Beelzebub. Whatever. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The problem for democrats is that democrats don't actually like Biden. They hate Trump, sure, but are they motivated to go and tick a box for a guy they don't like? Do they want to live with the fact they voted for the next Whitehouse disaster?


^ Democrats talking about how much they hate Biden. So if you poll saying are you a democrat or republican, that's going to give you a very different number to did you actually bother your arse to go out and vote for a guy you hate? The dems will struggle with apathy this time around. The republicans will have no such issue as they will be furious at the way the dems have behaved in opposition with impeachment, 25th amendment, threats of packing the supreme court, and will want sour-faced old cunts like Pelosi to feel some voter pain.

Trump's gonna steal this.

Yeah, Biden has never told any lies.  ::)
All differences aside: doesn't it suck that the supposedly most powerful nation in the world gets to choose between two senile professional liars for their next leader?
It is a fucking shit show.

You do realise that those figures are for the UK, don't you?
Is American coronavirus more dangerous than British coronavirus?

If Trump really cared about his tribe, he would have had them spaced out on chairs on the WH lawn, not packed in like sardines.

If you watch this video all the way through, you'll see the kind of people Democrats are.

But the best interview is this one   :D



Ah yes a cherry-picked interview video on YouTube with a dozen or so people.  Surely representative of the whole.

I want to play stupid games too: The people arrested for the Michigan Governor kidnapping are the perfect example of republicans.  Do I win a stupid prize now?
I showed you a nice video of a sweet little girl saying positive things about her President and you reduced her sentiment to a cherry picked law of probability. Democrats are awful.  :(
