Perhaps....perhaps not.


I think you've changed...or, maybe I have. Either way, it's good to have you and your wit back. The systematic dismantling of ignorance has never been more entertaining.

I was once banned too...

I told a poster to grab their cycle by the handlebars and pedal till that poster isn't angry anymore...or...something close to that.

I thought it was a good way to blow off some steam but apparently it was taken the wrong way. :huh: I almost always feel better after a bike ride.

Paint is something we can touch and have an intimate interaction with. Stars, aside from our Sun, are objects that we can't interact with and therefore rely on others to make the inanimate intimate.



It turns purple. Purple would be the natural colour that one turns after experiencing 'deoxidization'. If you were 'white' you turn pink, then blue, then purple, then black....roughly speaking.



Because those suffering from Obesity have as much chance as being Anorexic, as those suffering Anorexia Nervosa have for being obese.



Because government has the monopoly on legislating monopolies.



I 'believe' so.

Reality have never been immune to contradiction i reckon. Life's an interesting journey and its road, that we all take, is oft built with contradiction, hypocrisy and paradox.

Aside from the obvious designation given to someone who is a marksman, it's also known as a submission technique/maneuver used in wrestling.

The literal meaning is the original meaning, which was coined during the U.S. Civil War, for those Northern Union soldiers who would go into battle with what was called a Sharp's Rifle(featured in both versions of 'True Grit'), which was named after it's creator, Christian Sharps, and these soldiers were part of the U.S.S.S....also known as the United States Volunteer Sharpshooter Regiment.

These were the Sharpshooter's at Gettysburg: (Brady's Sharpshooters)

There have always been elite marksmen in war. Whether they were elite bowmen or long-riflemen, whether they were European or Native North American, or Asian, etc. Wherever there was from in human history more often than not you'd find a skilled marksman........ a Sharpshooter.

They can literally get you from a mile away and the very best nowadays, are as proficient practitioners of death as the Grim Reaper. himself.

In fact, the Sun does not go anywhere, it stays pretty much where it is.

It's the Earth that moves in such a way, by revolving(like this :frantic:), as it moves around the Sun, that produces the 'night' that we experience as we gradually cycle from facing away from the Sun's rays to facing towards the Sun's rays and then gradually away again.

Viva la Earth's 'revolucion'!

What kind of person were you in High School?


I think as a person, to sum up, I was a 'jack of all trades but master of none' kinda person. By that I mean, I wasn't just one way or one type of person, but tried to just be myself, whether people liked me for it or not, whether I was a complete dork and awkward in my own skin or totally full of confidence and feeling untouchable at school later on. I always stood up for myself and I tried to stand up for others, even if I was scared to. I got bullied, and I did a little of my own, regrettably.

I loved to learn about nerdy/geeky things, but I enjoyed being a jock too and a class clown always. I got along with pretty much everyone. Sometimes I was a total loner and other times I was part of a close group of friends, who were well liked because we were all guys with funny personalities and just generally good guys.

I think I was 'normal' but I can't be sure.

I think I went into highschool scared and unsure and came out self-confident and not scared of anything really.

Hope that answers your question sufficiently.

Gravity can slow down time and even warp it.

The greater the gravitational field the slower time ticks by in that field when compared to time that isn't near a great gravitational field.

A clock's second hand would move a bit slower on Jupiter than on Earth, because Jupiter exerts a much greater gravitational force on time than the Earth would because it has less mass, if you could simultaneously observe both clocks.

Brother , i mean this in the nicest way but unfortunately i do not consider you normal .
you are highly intelligent , articulate , compassionate and i believe that you genuinely empathise with people who do not have the quality of life that you do .
if that was the norm then the world would be a better place than it currently is .

To stop any sort of loophole answer here, you do intend for the activities to be sexual after you take the chosen character home correct? If you didn't say that, Sharpshooter could just say he'd take one home to play Scrabble or something.

If I ever took one of them home, it'd be so that we could continue drinking scotch. That said, I'd bring Fat Bastard home, because;

a) I can understand what he's saying,
b ) he's a funny fat bastard
c) as a Scotsman, he'd appreciate the 12 year old Macallan
d) his accent would make me puke with laughter
e) we could play 'guess what I had for dinner'.
f) he could teach me some wicked fat guy ninja moves
g) he'd have awesome spy stories

Being banned is like that state of being you were in before you joined and posted on CDC.

I didn't do anything in particular myself to get un-banned. I had a tremendous amount of support from many CDC members and a couple of members of the moderating team who approached our Administrator, which seemed to be sufficient, along with the passage of sufficient time, which led about to my return.
