Texting has a ton of practical applications:

• No time for a full conversation/just want to send a quick message
• The person you want to communicate with would be in trouble if their phone rang
• You or the person CAN'T talk right now
• Leaving a quick message for someone - "come over when you get this" or "lunch at 12:30?"
• "I miss you"
• Sending a mass message to friends "meet me for dinner at 7!"

etc.

I'd also love an Obama vs. Huckabee election - I would be fine with either as president. We also would finally be able to see Huckabee not have to pander to the far right and actually be himself.

The problem with Iraq is that the terrorists weren't there until we went in and created an environment that fostered terror. Saddam was not kind to Al Qaeda. Also, I think I'm one of the few people who was against the war at the beginning but believes that we can't set a timetable for withdrawal now.

Something I want to point out is that while hybrid cars are more efficient on the road, the environmental impact of manufacturing them, along with their lower durability, generally makes them less energy-efficient over their lifetime than a compact gas-engine car. Hybrid is a stop-gap technology that will (hopefully) not be around in 20 years.

I may say things like that only half-kidding. The "jk" is always 100% kidding, though.

Also, WWW is the worst abbreve ever - 9 syllables, as opposed to 3 for World Wide Web.

It's arguably more important to elect a good personality. For most voters in the rich countries right now, no policies are really all that important. Government by any of their mainstream parties would leave them with roofs over their heads and chickens in their pots.

In such circumstances, you can decide to be just as passionate about a 1% difference in income tax rates as you would be about ending famine or civil war. Or you can vote for a personality that seems most likely to keep your roof up and your chicken simmering, in the event of an unforeseen crisis.

I agree - so few of presidential candidates' proposed policies have any chance of actually passing. Far more important are their leadership abilities, executive appointments, etc.

Choosing a candidate solely based on issues might be more of a mistake than choosing one solely based on personality.

It's my understanding that the internal server errors don't have anything to do with the fact that we use UBB - they're based on the traffic and load that the ironycentral server is experiencing.

I prefer Exile because the game moves faster, the spell system is better, I prefer the graphics, and it was my first. *sigh*

One of the attackers who had previously been charged with hates crimes said that this couldn't have been a hate crime because his mother is Jewish. When he was charged with a hate crime for assault on a black man, he said that he was a two-star general in the Bloods and that most of his friends were black and Spanish.

I love Taco Bell, Wendy's, J in the B, and KFC.

Not a fan of Chipotle - everything tastes the same and there's no texture distinctions like at Taco Bell. Also not enough cheese.

Protesting (In General) in General
Triad Mage
Member # 7
Profile Homepage #26
In the spring of my senior year of high school, there were a lot of protests organized by a section of the MLK Association and Student Council protesting a variety of things, including racially insensitive comments from our (white) principal (in our 60% black high school), the short shrift given to the black history month assembly, the lack of teacher contracts, and the lack of communication and trust between teachers, students, and the administration.

It culminated in a 500-person (of 2000) walkout and protest joined by many teachers and security guards, and it resulted in our principal taking an extended leave of absence during spring break and not returning to school, ever.
