To everyone playing this game http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=31461, I would like to ask for a pause. I'm going away for the weekend and will be back approx Sunday 9 am AEST (Saturday 11 pm GMT). Please don't flame me as I can't ask this in game as it is a gunboat, and I would rather the players decide than ask for a moderator to do it which could leave some players confused.
So I have to find a list of ten or so jokes for my dad that he is going to use in a training seminar he's doing for a company out in missouri in about a month. I figured that you guys would probably know quite a few, so post away with all your jokes--good and bad!
I have tried on multiple computers and this is what i have in my orders section. I have waited hours and they have not loaded, this is the first time in a few years I have had this problem. What should I do? Loading order... Loading order...
water from cold stream after a morning's hike in the mountains... but then, I guess I'm taking into account the state of mind I'm in rather than simply the qualities of the drink itself... (though I do like water a lot)... I guess I might as well run with this... a margarita on a subtropical beach with no where to go... a hot chocolate after a day in the snow... a fine red wine on a special date... a quality mocha (not too sweet) in the afternoon hanging out with friends... a blueberry milk shake to top off a cheeseburger and fries meal... a lemon-lime sports drink during a timeout in a hard fought sporting contest... hemlock, when standing up for one's principles when given a choice between exile from one's homeland for one's opinions or death
Anything with caffeine, lovely, wonderful, insomnia-giving caffeine (who needs sleep, plenty of time for that later...)
As a cold drink- Coke, Dr. Pepper, and root beer are all good (IBC, S&W, Mug, Barq's... and no, can't evver have REAL beer, seizure meds for life, so yeah, for me, root beer has to count for the best cold rink...)
A hot drink- TEA!
Screw coffee, it's tea all the way, and so many great blends, black or green, English, Irish (VERY good and can give you a bit of a kick) Earl Grey, Chai... and then Oolong and Genmaicha and Jung Ching Dragonwell and a good deal more...
PG Tips - The best tea ever IBC Cream Soda - The glass bottles make it even better Irish Car Bombs - Delicious Irishness. If you don't know what it is, here's the recipe http://www.drinksmixer.com/drink7774.html
Whether it's "Rosebud..." or "Toy Story 3" (I have to see it still, but I'm already crying lol) the media seems to love to remind us of that nostalgic-but-sad-for-some fact...We ALL had a favorite toy or two...or many... And now- they're gone, or stuffed in the attic. Christmases, Channukahs, Birthdays...Nostalgia Galore- Favorite Toys, folks?
This Time on Philosophy Weekly: Americans, Fundamentalism, and Philosophy
I realize a good deal of Americans are likely moderate on this issue, but nevertheless, this has certainly affected me dearly in my life so far- in other countries, it seems, theological/philosophical ideas are more accepted in the mainstream; you may have your opinion, but you at least take into account all sides seriously. In America it seems to be more polarizing, "we're 100% right, full stop," especially on the Fundamentalist and Atheist platforms- WHY?
