Yeah, but they are the things that give it its taste, they are not the taste itself. The taste doesn't exist until someone tastes it. Taste is like color, it's the way we perceive something.

And anyway, I think it would be barley, not wheat, in that case :P


He is on about Stella which is tasteless anyway. Now British beer on the other hand....

One of the people Kim Davis denied a marriage license to is now challenging her for her county clerk position. I have no idea what his actual chances are, but personally, I hope he kicks her butt in the election.

Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?

Unfortunately that is very unlikely to happen in Rowan County. Too much ignorance still running rampant in those parts.


....but I'll be the first one to celebrate if, on the off chance, he does win!

If a man says something in a forest and there's no woman around to hear it, is he still wrong?

Terrorist attack in New York. 20 year old man from Bangladesh who has been in the USA for 7 years. Strapped a pipe bomb or 2 on himself. He's injured and in custody.

"Suspect in custody after 'pipe bomb' explosion in New York City
US news 9 minutes ago
NYPD officials are currently on the scene at Manhattan's Port Authority Bus Terminal after an explosion was reported around the area. Sources say a suspect, who was injured, has been taken into custody by authorities. No other injuries have been reported. More here as the story develops."

So far, 4 injuries, none are life threatening at this time.

Correction, now saying he's 27 years old.

This one supposedly is. In his questioning he said he did it in the name of ISIS.
BUT-
If you understand terrorism, you know that anything that causes the general public fear and insecurity in their daily routines due to real or perceived harm based on incidents like this, is terrorism. Doesn't matter if it's domestic or foreign.


I don't care what some cock-a-mammy definition you come up with from the internet or dictionary, THIS is the intent of terrorism. The more damage that is caused, the more lives taken and ruined, the greater the effect.
.It is my uppermost hope that even histories' genius's lost their minds as they aged. I'd hate to think that I really am an idiot. sjm

Pipe bombs?

That's like someone trying to commit suicide by slashing their wrists with a teaspoon! :shock:

Highly unlikely he was even going to kill himself, let alone anyone else.

Was only going to happen after the capital cock up by Trump last week. Not that that justifies anything of course.
