Not much else to do when you're praying for someone to call your phone with a job offer. (My phone, which I had paid for myself, was at the time a $99 pre-paid Verizon deal that cost me $15 a month out of my unemployment insurance to keep active. I wish I had known about the "Obama phones" - except since that was 2005 I guess they were "Bush Phones" back then.)

No matter. I'm gainfully employed now, happily paying my taxes as part of the 53%, and going to finish a graduate degree that will probably double our household income in the next nine months. Then I can happily pay more taxes, probably as much in a single year as the four grand that covered my *** 7 years ago.

It's the same because it's generic and easy to emulate. Asylum almost always has at least two and a half of them at a time.

Not saying it isn't the same person playing the role, but without the key characteristics it isn't the same character. Garfield and Heathcliff.

Can we swap out the batsh*t crazy right wing ranters with some that can formulate a coherent argument? Mr. Crazylegs is boring.

We set taxes as percentage of wealth now? Unless she's in that sweet income spot somewhere around $100-250k where most earnings are direct income versus capital gains she's almost certainly paying a lower percentage of her income than Romney. And if she's in that range, she's not hurting economically.

Smiley: dubious

Gbaji, you do know how homemade ice cream is made.... right?

And the freezing properties of salt water that make it possible...?

... You know what, I'm not even going to bother. Smiley: oyvey

Edit: I think George Romney lied to everyone when he said it was sweetened with salt so he could eat all of it himself, and Mitt never figured it out.

George: Because you messed up, I now have to eat this salty ice cream, despite the taste, and it is all your fault!

Mitt: No, Daddy, don't eat it, I'm sorry, I will be better next time!

George: (tears running down his cheeks) No, son, WE DON'T WASTE FOOD! BE BRAVE! REMEMBER THE SACRIFICE I AM ABOUT TO MAKE FOR YOU!

You already have those, they just stop posting because as soon as they make a point, the ******* crazy right wingers jump on it and run with it in a ******* crazy way and then the coherent ones give up.

Yeah. Mechanics aside, eating a batch of salty (presumably salty enough to be a trial worth remembering) ice cream strikes me less as a noble display of frugality and more like someone who doesn't understand the "sunk costs" fallacy. It's ruined man, just cut bait and let it go rather than eating fucked up ice cream just to make a point.
