Raising taxes on the rich
I was reading the forums and I am displeased by how many people think taxes should be raised on the rich. What an outrageous idea! It is the rich who create jobs that fuel the economy. In fact, last year alone my company made over 100 new jobs. If the rich have their taxes raised, even more jobs will be lost.

Buying this site
I have been looking around this site and it seems like it is a well made site. I have bought websites in the past and this seems like a worthy one. Would the current site owner contact me on how much he/she would charge for the ownership of the site.

Does cancelling a game make it impossible for a mod to investigate cheating?
If I were to cancel a game, would that make it impossible for a mod to investigate cheating in the game?

Locating a mod
Why am I so stupid I can't figure it out? I have what I think is a pretty obvious example of cheating and know enough not to accuse anyone on the forum... but even after checking the FAQ I can't figure out how to find a mod.

Inflation in GR?
Does your GR naturally rise over time? Given the statement that you supposedly improve each game you play for each experience, if you are in the top 300 now, is it natural to fall within the, say, top 150 6 months from now?

Draw vs point gain survive
Clearly, in WTA, the draw is superior. But what about in PPSC? Would you rather draw for 1/4 the stack, or take a survive for 1/3 of it? I tend to chose the second option so far, because that will maximize my points, and GR I believe.

Are there those who disagree? Do some people believe that anything less than a draw is a loss, even if it's worth more points/GR, and are these the same people that refuse to play PPSC?

Rhetorical Questions
Why does country music make me wanna punch a baby in the face? Why does Ford build a 4-cylinder Mustang? Why does most/all nun porn come out of Italy? Speaking of porn...What is up with Russia and rape/incest porn? What is up with Germany and pissing/bukkake porn? Why did I start this thread?

Please pile on with you own rhetorical questions, please. I need a good laugh.

How do you clear the Unread Messages icon in a gunboat game?
This is driving me crazy.
The messages are from mods letting people know about players who got banned (I just took over one of them).

Anwar Al-Awlaki
The United States has assassinated an American citizen, never having been charged or indicted; this has sent a precedent that anyone the government deems a "threat" by a legal analysis the government won't even release can be blown up from the sky. There is no outcry or even discussion among most Americans; he is a terrorist. When people exchange liberty for security, they deserve neither.

Ulysses, James Joyce
So, I'm reading Joyce's Ulysses this week as part of my studies. It's a renowned and controversial text so I figured many of you here would have something worthwhile to offer me on it. Although I expect and welcome a fair amount of comments of ridicule - I hope some of our more scholarly contributors might be able to offer me an insight/judgement or two.

"If *I* Say Its Too Hard, Joyce Has Clearly Failed.*
^True quote from a guy so pompous even *I* can't stand him (who claims to know all about...everything, and knows nothing, INISISTING English people wore no pants or anything of the sort until Henry VIII, and that tarring a guy's ball's is ESSENTIAL to understanding Huck Finn...not kidding, he said this)
1. If a work is "too hard"/unclear to you, your fault, authors's fault, or both?
2. I argued you should read such works twice, he said bull--opinions?

my favorite that i have been able to make myself is a fuzzy screwdriver or fuzzy screw- (peach schnapps, vodka, and orange juice combining the spirits (no pun intended) of a fuzzy navel and a screwdriver)
I like caipirinha, a sugar cane rum drink from Brazil.
