[edit] It's All About the Trend

Oh dear, Ken and Andy aren't going to like this: Google Trends If you look at the entire range, you can see just how far the mighty have fallen. Meanwhile, slow and steady wins the race...Tacitus (talk) 07:59, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

... Canada has more search volume for RW than the U.S. does? Interesting. - Grant (talk) 16:03, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Canadians pondering the wisdom of those living south of the border? Or, to paraphrase my favorite blogger (BikeSnobNYC), it's Canada checking its (geographic) underpants, looking for stains. MarmotHead (talk) 16:20, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Ha! Well said. The relative appearance of insanity in the States (especially in the Bible Belt) is certainly a topic a conversation among many people I know. - Grant (talk) 16:32, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm hoping there will be at least one more spike. Andy has plenty of crazy left, something has to go viral again. Occasionaluse (talk) 19:30, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
So what happened at the end? Did I miss the apocalypse? Redchuck.gif ГенгисGum disease Moderator 07:26, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
About the Canadian thing, it's probably because of our Stephen Harper page. We document his stupidity in an easier format than wikipedia. ClothCoat (talk) 22:40, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Schlafly had an opinion on Ferguson.

The sane Schlafly, that is. The one who makes beer: He seems to be seeing things differently than he used to. Too bad "the ability to change your mind when presented with new evidence" isn't a genetic trait. (talk) 16:09, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Well it may well be a genetic trait trait, but on the distaff side. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? Moderator 12:40, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
The more I hear about Schlafly the brewer, the more I pray for him to take over conservapedia in some epic manner and convert it to a beer and progressive politics focussed blog. Or at least for him and Andy to get into a public slapfight. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 10:45, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Ken uses "beta males"

lololololimg I guess he fancies himself a pickup artist, now?--"Shut up, Brx." 19:28, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Doesn't Ken have a hard-on for PUA and lover of young girls, Vox Day? PsyGremlinПоговорите! 11:45, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

It looks like the poor whacko is having an episode. He's been polishing his obesity turds for about eight hours straight. Whoover (talk) 05:53, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

He's not a whacko he is a nasty cowardly bully. I don't think he posted "An overweight Chinese student weeps after a light exercise during training at a camp held for overweight children at a local university on July 16, 2014 in Beijing, China." by coincidence, he posted it just as Andy posts a homework lecture for his students.--Mercian (talk) 10:00, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Of course he's a nasty cowardly bully. But is it a choice or was he born that way? I think he has a genetic predisposition to his offensive lifestyle. Whoover (talk) 14:30, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

The Hell? Doesn't that literally argue that people are apes? Is this seriously a "I reject evolution, but I accept this overly simplistic application of it" thing? Oh, Ken, if only you followed more modern, advanced studies of eusocial mammals. Ikanreed (talk) 14:59, 25 August 2014 (UTC)

You can tell Ken's never left the US. He's writing about how big chain hotels in China have... gasp... buffets. Newsflash, Ken. Big hotels everywhere in Asia have buffets. It isn't the locals that frequent them for the most part, they're too expensive. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:37, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
I would have to challenge you on that. Living in Buffalo, I'm sure he has visited Canada. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? Moderator 19:25, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
I'm not wading through the obesity cesspool, but has anyone done so sufficiently to understand Ken's explanation for the world-class levels of obesity in the US? I notice that article is missing. It would also presumably address the states with the top 15 obesity rank: Mississippi, West Virginia, Alabama, Louisiana, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Michigan, Indiana, Georgia, Missouri, Alaska and Texas versus their low-rank counterparts: Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, Montana, Utah, DC, New Jersey, California, Arizona, Florida, New Mexico and New York. It must be because American Exceptionalism. Whoover (talk) 21:54, 25 August 2014 (UTC)
Ah, but Chuck Norris. Ruddager (talk) 03:43, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
I love how Ken's source for the Chinese buffets is Yahoo! Answers. He did try to rewrite the information without just plagiarizing it, bless him. However, it still reads much more like the travel advice it was meant to be (There's a Brazilian place in Guangzhou where they cut the meat in front of you) rather than criticism of the fast fattening society. I also love the heading "China and Western style food restaurants and China has rapidly become the biggest beer market". It's nearly as long as the section underneath it. In fact, it's virtually identical to the section underneath it. Spud (talk) 05:45, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
I don't get it. Is China more atheistic now or something? What is explaining this astonishing rise in obesity? (Yes, yes, I know: a nation of growing wealth eating more red meat and delicacies.)
Also, am I misremembering, or didn't Conservative previously claim that Christianity is growing fast in China today? Phiwum (talk) 03:10, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
For that matter, I wonder why Conservative has an article about the second most obese nation rather than one about the first. Phiwum (talk) 13:18, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Hilarity will occur

Andy's teaching a new course on the Constitution! MDB (the MD used to be for Maryland, but now means Magically Deliciousthe B is still for Bear) 10:34, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

I remember when I suggested that Andy start a "Conservative Constitution Project", but he said the constitution was too perfect and easy to understand. I wonder how he can editorialize a whole course about it. Occasionaluse (talk) 19:36, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] And what happened then? Andy's perspective grew three sizes that day.

Well well well.img Some context: Joaquin makes a tone-deaf (for conservapedia) addition on MPR.img Predictably some of the other editors get up in arms over it, but everyone is too chickenshit to do anything since Andy semi-tacitly endorses the entry by making a few minor edits.img

Jpatt is especially pissed.img But good ol' Andy is here to give some perspective, all oh no wait it's not just dirty Muslims getting screwed over by Isreal it's also Catholics, my people. People I care aboot. Oh noes who could have known. Conservatives' lack of imagination continues to astound me. Shakedangle (talk) 19:20, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

It is quite funny to watch the other sysops screw with JPratt's black and white belief system. Maybe he'll stop leeching of cp's dwindling reputation on twitter out of protest. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:45, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
Just checked out JPratt's twitter. Pretty typical stuff I guess for a Tea Partier. I really do hope he takes his ball and leaves the mostly empty playground. Shakedangle (talk) 21:27, 28 August 2014 (UTC)
And now some trimmingimg of teapartycrusaders links. Apparently they're monotonous. I had a really hard time spelling monotonous, possibly due to my inebriated state. If only I came in 3rd in a spelling bee, at some point in my past, possibly. Shakedangle (talk) 23:24, 28 August 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Ken, you daft wazzock!

No, Ken. British kids saying "awesome' has got bugger all to do with Conservapedia's manual of styleimg. If you read the sodding Daily Fail article, you'll see it says nothing about Britons no longer writing "colour" and "centre", writing "August 29, 2014" instead of "29th August 1973" or saying "have gotten" instead of "have got". What it is about is language evolving, with some words coming into British English from American popular culture, as they have done since at least the days of the first "talkies". It's nothing new and definitely not a victory for anything connected to Conservapedia. You great berk! Spud (talk) 07:33, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Wow. That is lame by even Ken's low standards. Acei9 08:07, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
