  1. Good to know you aren't funny even when you're trying to make a non-political joke. It was getting frustrating trying to figure out if it was just a translation thing.
  2. http://www.amazon.com/B29-Superfortress-Ballintines-Illustrated-History/dp/B000HJ4Y24 My introduction to the subject when I was around 7 or 8 years old.
  3. That article relies on some half truths and supposition although its basic premises can't be dismissed out of hand. I've read a lot of material on the subject and the idea that the Japanese were going to surrender regardless of us dropping the bomb is pretty sketchy. In the end the only lives we were really concerned about were American, and if using the bomb helped save our troops from enduring an invasion of the Japanese mainland then it was going to be used at that point. Our firebomb attacks killed a lot more people. And the reason we started firebomb attacks was that high altitude precision bombing over Japan was shown to be ineffective, after making the B-29 our largest wartime project (more expensive than the A Bomb) and we needed to use them for something. It's possible that the Russians entering the fight might have eventually caused the military to reconsider their policy of no surrender, but that was out of our control - using the bomb was in our control, and it also showed the Soviets that the West was going to be the power in charge post war, not them.
  4. How the Left wins it for the Right

    Boston Tea Party - simply some hilarious shenanigans, or the beginning of a social movement?

  7. #FEELTHEJOHNSON

    #feelthejohnson? Pretty sure the NC legislature is going to pass a law making doing that illegal.
  8. Your Odd News For The Day

    This is the same law thats been enacted in many other cities without incident. I'm not saying it's not possible, I'm saying it doesn't happen IRL, while attacks on trans people in bathrooms do actually happen. The guy hanging out in the womens bathroom will still be removed by the cops. Nothing has changed there.
  9. An Inexcusable, Willful Disregard for the Rules

    By any measure, Hillary is waaaaay more "honest" than Donald Trump will ever be. The fact is, that it's not important to you who lies more, what's important is that you get to say that the other person is a liar and hope no one checks up on that.
  10. An Inexcusable, Willful Disregard for the Rules

    it's since 2007, Bill isn't running for office so he doesn't have to say anything to appease one group over another.
  11. An Inexcusable, Willful Disregard for the Rules

    or you can be honest and just say that you don't care about any kind of research or evidence, and just do with the Hillarys a lying bitch memes all day

  13. This is representative of all Bucs fans

    oh come on this is baloney she has the Bucs flag because it has swords in it, not because she is some dedicated Bucs fan that needs a reminder in her knife room LOL
  14. WTH's going on on Bald Head Island?

    it seems far more likely the cop is lying to protect himself than these people lying for some other reason to me. But I would be pissed if some vacation spot cop decided to make an example of me on my vacation too.
