LOL, he's out of his fucking mind if he thinks Notre Dame is gonna beat Georgia. Technically, anything's possible, but... Nah. They're playing IN Athens. If they were playing in South Bend, maybe. Georgia's gonna be even better this year. Notre Dame's biggest problem in my opinion is COACHING anyway. He's their weakest link. He doesn't have the balls to call the plays that'll put Notre Dame in a position to beat Georgia.

"...overrated SEC team..."

CRACKA, PLEASE! Besides THEM (who are actually consistently overrated), they're in one of the weakest conferences in football. Army, BYU, New Mexico State, UMass, Liberty, nobody wants to play them because beating them means very little. EVERYBODY wants to play against the SEC, because beating them is an accomplishment that means more. Notre Dame gets ranked so high for two reasons in my opinion, and both of them are stupid reasons to do so. #1, they look like Jesus Christ resurrected compared to the rest of their terrible conference members. #2, the retards they're polling have a hard-on for the movie Rudy. And I honestly think #2 plays a bigger factor, because those getting polled and deciding these rankings aren't taking their ballots serious enough to pay attention to ALL the games taking place in the current season.

Nonononononononono. Don't. Take it from someone who's lost enough.  :-[

When you don't need the money and it's all in fun, you'll win. When your backs to the wall and you MUST win, you won't.

What'll happen is you'll lose once, double up, lose again, double up, lose again... then you'll freak out and get furious that your luck could be so shitty, and you'll keep doubling up, and you'll keep digging the hole deeper. The losing streak hits everyone eventually, but it especially seeks out people who MUST win, and it takes great joy in fucking them up the ass until they've maxed out their credit cards, pawned their car titles, and sold their kidneys to chinese gangsters. That's a little extreme, yes, but that's just how sadistic the losing streak is. It'll go as far as you let it. It's not really the one fucking you up the ass, it's just standing there with it's dick out, and every time you place another bet, you're the one backing up and fucking your own ass with it's big veiny dick.

I used to be a big fan of Ayn Rand and her hard nosed objectivist/capitalist philosophy, and in and of itself, it's still terrific. But in present practice, American capitalism is a corrupt spiraling black hole that I anticipate will swallow everything and not be sustainable indefinitely. Manufacturing is where it's at. And American business just doesn't have the balls to do it anymore. They've figured out that they can screw the foreign workers a lot harder than they can screw the American workers, and they're never gonna go back (and thus lose profit they were making before) now that they've made the switch, that's not how business works. It's akin to attempting to get everyone to go back to listening to music on cassettes again. Not gonna happen, not ever, not after digital downloads where you can store 50,000 albums on a single thumb drive the size of a pack of Juicy Fruit.

If it's true that oppressive dictatorship is the natural result of communist philosophy applied to government, then it's probably also true what the commies say about us: that corruption is the natural result of capitalism. They ain't entirely wrong, are they?

Eh... I dunno. She's a fuckin' space cadet. Yeah, it's totally ridiculous, but she has many totally ridiculous ideas about things. I can see why people wouldn't question it. :D

My old man was ranting and raving about it the morning the news broke about his suicide. He's one of these who believes the old rumors about the Clintons taking out murder contracts on people, having a hit list with all these people who died under mysterious circumstances. In other words, he thinks because it was rumored he had ties to the Clintons and so many other famous people, he was murdered to keep him from spilling everyones secrets about... diddling child prostitutes, I guess.

I think they call it Occam's razor, where "the simplest explanation is likely the truest." Short of a presidential pardon, he was likely NEVER going to see the outside of a prison ever again. And given that he was accused of sexual misconduct with minors, that's was gonna make life really tough for him behind bars. You can do the most heinous shit in the world and other inmates don't really care, but if you mess with children, you're a target for EVERYONE. When you go from having all the money in the world and virtually no laws or limits,... to staring at a booger crusted concrete prison wall for 23 hours a day, and knowing that's what you're gonna be doing every single day for the rest of your life... why not fucking kill yourself?

I see pictures of him, and all I can think is how much he looks like Roy Firestone, the old ESPN sportscaster who was the host of an old late 80's ESPN sports bloopers VHS tape I had as a kid.

Bought one of these overpriced little whores today. Cost me about $185. EHX makes another octave above and below pedal called the MicroPOG, but it only does 1 octave above and one octave below your dry signal note. And the MicroPOG costs $205, which is really weird to me, because it seems like the Pitch Fork does more but somehow costs less. :-\

This one, you can select the interval of the pitch from 4th's to perfect 5ths to 1 octave up and down, 2 full octaves up and down, or 3 full octaves up and down. And as you see from the toggle switch you can select only the up or down pitch or BOTH, and with the LATCH button, it turns the switch into a momentary switch which makes the pedal swiftly bend the note up or down for whammy-like effects. One really cool thing about it is if you turn the octave selector all the way down to 0, it gives a detune effect. I dunno if you've ever heard one before, but it's kinda like a chorus effect... but different. I had a detune effect module on my Digitech rack processor that I used quite a bit to get a wide spacious kinda Zakk Wylde chorus sound.

About the "greek salad bitch": I have to assume that was an online order and something reprinted from what the customer requested in a text field. Nobody who ever worked at a pizza joint was industrious enough to give a shit to type all that out themselves no matter how funny they might've thought it to be.
