Why are you bringing up an article that was last edited on February 18, 2012? Is this your idea of being mysterious? Spud (talk) 08:38, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
I was thinking the same and then I checked Best New Conservative Wordsimg and worked it out. Oldusgitus (talk) 09:06, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Carriage return. Discuss. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 09:09, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes, Andyimg, please associate conservatism with an out-of-date item that's been nearly completely phased out in the industrialized world. And do it while you're using a computer. --Night Jaguar (talk) 10:49, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Didn't I read somewhere that German security are going back to the typewriter 'cause of the US spying thing? Scream!! (talk) 11:11, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

The beat part is typewriter was almost undoubtedly added by a parodist and Andy ran with it in because it fit his "perfect doubling" Snrub (talk) 11:40, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
To me the best part is that a conservative thing like a typewriter was replaced by something that owed its existence to another conservative thing, the transistor. Father Vivian O'Blivion talkModerator 14:00, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Perfect Doubling. PERFECT. What an awesome scientific discovery Andy has made. I am not disappoint. DogP (talk) 14:58, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
You'd think Andy would realize his "hypothesis" is ridiculous when even Ken criticizes it. Even a rudimentary understanding of basic statistics would be sufficient to understand the multiple flaws in what he's doing. Snrub (talk) 16:37, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Someone came in and messed up his "perfect doubling". I wonder how long until Andy reverts the changes? Snrub (talk) 16:39, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
That was RoryFimg. Andy took it pretty well.img Father Vivian O'Blivion talkModerator 16:52, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
As has been pointed out here before, if someone really wants to have fun they should add many 16th century terms. That's when Andy's "geometric growth" bites him in the ass and he has to add many more terms to complete his "layers". My guess, however, is that Andy will take the lazy way out and declare by fiat that the words added weren't conservative enough. --Night Jaguar (talk) 17:19, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
In this case he's just gone "nuh-uh" and reverted RoryF's changes. Typical, and boring. Ruddager (talk) 23:21, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
I wonder if Any even believes his "conservative word hypothesis" or if he just keeps up his idiocy because he is completely incapable of ever admitting he was wrong. Snrub (talk) 12:59, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
You gotta admit, those are pretty indistinguishable within his demonstrated behaviour. K61824"6+18=24" 13:17, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Seriously though, the year is wrong. Back in 1829 it isn't call a "Typewriter", but "Typographer" instead. "Type-Writer" isn't used until 1874, and the hyphen isn't removed until 1880. But then again, who trus Wikipedia for facts? K61824ZOYG I edit like Kenservative! 20:24, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Who cares, so long as it's in the 1800s that's all that matters for Andy. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? Moderator 21:49, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
Ken's won't be too happy with thisimg. Can the vandal please stop. Ghost (talk) 02:41, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
Are you kidding? A closet case like Ken will be thrilled. He'll be reminded of Chuck Norris' "svelte" physique.--"Shut up, Brx." 03:12, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
That's actually some pretty good artwork. I'm impressed. AyzmoCheers 13:29, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

Troll harder, Kendoll. You're getting boring.--"Shut up, Brx." 17:00, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
I always kinda hoped that no one was REALLY dumb enough to fall for all of Putin's "I'm a MAN!" PR. X Stickman (talk) 21:16, 22 July 2014 (UTC)
I wonder how you distinguish between liberal Blame America Firstism and conservative Blame Obama Firstism. I suspect for Ron Paul it's a matter of black and white. I don't know about Andy and Ken. Whoover (talk) 21:35, 22 July 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Barking Up the Wrong Tree Department

Our German Don Quixote, AugustO, is back and appeals to Andyimg to consult with Roger and Phyllis on the subject of Einstein. I wonder how that would go? Whoover (talk) 00:18, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Is that website even from this century? London Grump (talk) 07:43, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
I'm saying it again: AugustO is trying to perform suicide by sysop. Along with challenging Schlafly on physics he's also trying to challenge himimg on Bible translationimg while fighting in a second front against Kenimg. It's not going to end well for him. - Bill Rawls (talk) 18:48, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
we have been saying this forever and he is still there. Just what does he have to do to get booted? AMassiveGay (talk) 20:22, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
New theory: AugustO is Andy's id, brought to life by ancient alien technology, and like in the movie Forbidden Planet, it/he cannot be destroyed.--"Shut up, Brx." 21:42, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Conservapedia proven right!

An excess of something is bad for you.img Bravo, Ken, for correctly demonstrating the definition of "excess."--"Shut up, Brx." 02:49, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

You know, spending 10 hours a day in online game is bad for you. But 10 hours a day editing a crackpot wiki, followed by 10 hours the next day trying to deny you ever made those edits. That's perfectly healthy. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 11:46, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
Actually, Brx, the definition of "excess" does not require bad effects. Phiwum (talk) 13:49, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
An odd bed couple Andy and Ken, they clearly do not give a shit about each other. Ken does the almost impossible by making CP even more of a croc of hate and deceit filled shit than it already is thus crapping over what is left of Andy's reputation and he in return allows it to go on as it generates page views. If either were to die today the thought of the other would be Conservapedia, Ken knowing that nobody anywhere would give him the limitless freedom to spurt his bullshit and Andy would be lamenting the fall in the ratings, neither would even shed a sad thought for the other.--Mercian (talk) 14:51, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
"Too much" is too much, for one reason or another--"Shut up, Brx." 16:06, 24 July 2014 (UTC)
"Excess" can mean more than is normal. It doesn't require negative effects. You don't have to torture common definitions in order to point out that Ken is stoopid, you know. Phiwum (talk) 17:28, 24 July 2014 (UTC)

Not worth a section: Heartless Obama administration tells dying vet to get a job.img Well, it's truthier than Communication by large bureaucracy correcting error and awarding retroactive benefits is somehow lost in mail! Funny how a professional news organization like CP still goes with the BS story 24 hours after the original source updated theirs. Whoover (talk) 20:01, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Question Evolution Blog

Is it me, or is Ken's side project as dead as Dickens's doornail? London Grump (talk) 21:03, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

Don't you understand? It's not dead, he's just being cunning. At the strategically appropriate moment evolution will be questioned and that'll be the end of atheism and evolutionism on the internets. Insert Sun Tzu copypasta here. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:42, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

He's probably too busy working on his middle school booklet or communicating with the other 199 members of Project 200+ to work on his blog. But then, he still finds time to exit Conservapedia for 12 hours a day. Snrub (talk) 01:01, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

What was that "Flying Fortress" project of his that I've heard mentioned a few times all about? I missed that one somehow Ruddager (talk) 07:11, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Lerner, She-Wolf of the IRS.

Chucky, lacking anything substantial to keep the IRS scandal going is very upset that Lois Lerner said people who call in to right-wing talk radio are off their heads. Doesn't everyone think that, even the GOP? I mean, CP has been running tea party news stories about how the chamber of commerce is trying desperately to keep those nutters out of the running. I don't think it's a terribly controversial opinion unless you're also that nuts. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 00:09, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Speaking of chucky I wonder how long it will take Rosseane, the ever graceful 'pastor' bickle and chucky himself to report on this considering quite how often they quoted Stevie Fielder when the 'story' first broke. I won't be holding my breath waiting for chuck's correction to be published. Oldusgitus (talk) 06:32, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Whoa whoa whoa

Joaquin makes an MPR (I pronounce it "em pee arr") entry sympathetic to Gazaimg, with a link to an Al Jazeera article, no less. In and of itself that's not too surprising, as he's shown to be at least neutral on the Israel - Palestinian conflict before. Along comes Conservative to bury it with his drivel, so business as usual so far. Andy stops by and seemingly endorses Joaquin's entry by moving it to the top!img

What is going on here? Has the conflict in Gaza become so lopsided Israel has lost even Andy's support? Is Andy just being passive aggressive with Ken? Terry displaces the top entry with his usual link whoring a few minutes afterward, and it's still there as I type this. Andy made a small edit to Joaquin's entry after it was first published, so I doubt that Andy doesn't know the content of the article. The little nuggets of mystery like this are why Andy is more interesting than Ken. Shakedangle (talk) 16:13, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, and terry comes along 6 minutes laterimg to shit all over andy and post a link to his hate blog above it. Great leadership andy. Oldusgitus (talk) 16:44, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
This is really no surprise, coming from the man who listed Putin as 'Conservative of the year.' I'm frankly terrified by Israel's actions here, too, but this is likely just related to Andy's apparent endorsement of the Russian bloc (talk) 19:08, 31 July 2014 (UTC)
