[edit] Ken's (and Beck's) History 101 "test"

Hey, Ken - guess what - that history 101 test you were bleating about? (link to it on Beck's page) - ACED IT! And I'm not even American (although seriously, if that's the standard of your university history teaching then no wonder China's taken over as #1. Or maybe it's just hard for conservatives. Or for people who believe in magic trumpet sounds from the sky?). Oh yeah, and here's the proof:

UH Hist 101 Blaze.png

Oh, and question 3 is wrong - the Puritans didn't come to the US to escape persecution. They came to persecute. Just ask all the Baptists they hanged. PsyGremlinTal! 12:36, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Uh yeah, I went to State School in the UK, have had no formal education covering US History, and I aced that. It's not exactly taxing, though I have no idea how much history is taught in US schools. Actually not a very high proportion of UK history is taught in our system either, but we have so much more history to cover. Worm (talk) 12:49, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
I also "aced" it. I was very disappointed though. It promised to test my knowledge about the greatest nation on earth, but all the questions were about America for some reason... --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 14:24, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
I aced it too, and I'm both British and an imbecile. I guess if it wasn't so easy it would leave beck fans a little alienated if they couldn't do well. AMassiveGay (talk) 18:00, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Yep, I aced it as well. Now, I wonder if Kenny would do remotely as well on a test on British\English history. Anyone know if there is a link to such a test? Oldusgitus (talk) 18:30, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
It said I aced it the first time through. Then I went back and answered every question incorrectly, this time it said I passed with flying colors. Talk about grade inflation. Marlow (talk) 20:06, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Aced it. The questions are grade school level. --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock )Moderator 20:10, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
Went back and answered about half the questions correctly, still said I aced it. Funny definition of aced I guess. Marlow (talk) 20:16, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
I just intentionally answered all the questions wrong (to the best of my knowledge - some questions are a bit vague) and it said I passed with flying colors. Cow...Hammertime! 22:21, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Aced it. But where's Ace? Would he ace it? DogP (talk) 18:00, 21 May 2015 (UTC)

Bloody stupid. "Aced It" & I know next to nothing at all bout American History. I was convinced that I'd fail before I started. Then did it again - all different answers - "Passed with flying colours" Really STUPID! Scream!! (talk) 18:18, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Apart from the first few questions is was very easy. If your average American adult can't ace this then perhaps Ken, Andy and Co have a point about their state school system.--Mercian (talk) 14:49, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
I have no interest in taking such a "test," partly because I suspect it is a way of gathering data. In aid of what? Don't care. Has anybody deliberately given wrong answers, and been told that they screwed the pooch, or does it always dispense a feelgood at the end? Alec Sanderson (talk) 15:04, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
I think there are three grades, "You aced it!", "You passed with flying colors' and "You're missing a few important facts but there's till room for improvement". I got that third mark the second time I took the test when I intentionally answered every question incorrectly. I aced it the first time. It's easy peasy pudding and pie primary school stuff. Ken, passing that test is nothing to crow about if any liberal limey nancy-loving atheist can do it. -Spud (talk) 16:16, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

Aced it. Apparently I've been known to visit Civil War sites and collect World War 2 memorabilia. I must have done that in my sleep. Cardinal Fang (talk) 20:24, 22 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Rob Smith: All is forgiven.

Baby, won't you please come back to meimg? Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 15:40, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

This is gold - Rob you have to go back. The return of the prodigal son, it's almost biblical, except this prodigal son will return triumphantly. Tielec01 (talk) 02:19, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
The only problem is he'll have to ask permission in the soopah-seekrit chat room... and as it's only Andy and Kara left in there, and both of them ignore all of Ken's posts, it's not going to happen. PsyGremlinTal! 16:18, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
I'd enjoy watching Nobbykins kiss Ken's demonic ring for the chance to get his powah back. If nothing else, it'd get him out from underfoot here. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:26, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Are we like the girl friends who remind Rob he broke up with Ken in the first place? Well, here's Ken in Rob's own words:
CP does have another TK, and it's User:Conservative. TK actually did have some leadership skills, occassionally did listen to others, sometimes willing to negotiate, could persuade and was willing to be persuaded, at times. Ken combines the worst traits of Ken & TK, with zero leadership ability, and zero tolerance to even listen to others. It would be a mistake to say he's ideologically blinded, cause to have an ideology you would be able to discuss and defend it, and he can't do that. He's demonic. Even the demons believe in God, tremble, as the bible says.
Don't crawl back, Rob! You're better than that. Not much better, and you're still not all that great as a person, but at least you're kinda better than Ken and them. --Night Jaguar (talk) 01:06, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
But the Alexa ratings are in the dumpster. If I could generate some interest...it's tempting...nobsI'm not from this planet, but let me tell u what I think.... 03:21, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
"In the dumpster": discarded. "In the dumper": suggestive of crap. Whoover (talk) 02:58, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
I think Rob is adorable. "Oh! A challenge! Shall I apply my wiles and turn this doomed train around? How intriguing..." What a white knight! What a ridiculously inflated view of his own relevance!
Go for it, Rob. Your public needs you. Phiwum (talk) 13:06, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
Kenimg: Things are going be different now, baby. I'm new a man. I've mellowed. No more fights. I always did love the way you stoked irrational fear of communism. --Night Jaguar (talk) 14:13, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Oh Nobby, he loves youimg and misses you. The question will you follow the all to common template of the abused and go back just so when kenny gets bored he can start kicking you all over again? Or you could always go back and go deep cover parodist :-) Oldusgitus (talk) 12:14, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Jokes aside it's impossible to make CP into anything not a joke now, just because it's CP. It could have a daily readership of millions but it'd still have all the baggage that comes with its history. It'd be possible to start a new website with CP's original goals and have that as a success, so long as no old CP users had a prominent position in it. X Stickman (talk) 12:33, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
Not my place to say Robs but just remember how these people, Ken in particular, hung you out to dry. Ken is only making this offer because he is without a friend on Conservapedia.--Mercian (talk) 15:39, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Lots of activity this Memorial Day. Not a hint of "Thanks to our men in uniform for keeping us free to post hate." The closest is "ISIS is Obama's fault because he won't send more Christians to die in the desert." This level of hypocrisy is what makes CP such a fine humor site. Whoover (talk) 16:10, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Kenimg: "By the way, did you ever notice that Andy never mentions the editors at "ritionalwaki"?" Yes, I've noticed his tendency to ignore his critics. "No doubt he considers them far too trivial and far too beneath him to trifle over." Yet you obsessively read us. More probable that he just doesn't want to leave his little bunny hole. "If only they graduated from 3 Ivy League universities" 3? I'm only aware of him graduating from Princeton and Harvard Law. Anyway, if it is three, he's done jack shit with those degrees. "had a notable mother" How is that an accomplishment? "argued before high courts" And lost while having a judge literally laugh at his arguments. "had students who have graduated from some of the finest universities" Says more about those unfortunate students, since Andy is such a horrible teacher.
If this is what you want to go back to, Rob, by all means go. --Night Jaguar (talk) 00:02, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Aaand the edit has been deleted, and the capture failed. Cømrade FυzzчCαтPøтαтø (talk/stalk) 01:54, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
I've always tried to strike a balance between the two - there's certain things you can do at CP that can't be done at RW and things that can be done at RW that can't be done at CP (I don't mean testing the limits at both, my goal has always been to combine mainspace contributions from both to make solid NPOV contribs that would stand up per WP standards). And to Ken, sorry I haven't responded sooner. No hard feelings. We have successfully collaborated in the past, and I see no reason we couldn't in the future. Currently I'm immersed in present day national security affairs (meaning Islamic and Chinese stuff rather than Cold War communism). As to editing, I'm already doing that, updating and preparing Obama's legacy on domestic affairs (hope you like it). To return as Rob Smith (my real ID) and be more active, I'd have to have access to the Main Page, with the election coming up and all, you know. And upload privileges, of course. nobsI'm not from this planet, but let me tell u what I think.... 04:59, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
Remember this, Rob?
Kenimg: "Please be very careful when communicating with RobS. Do not trust him. Based on this discussion with some atheists who have shown malevolence towards this website, I think RobS has little reluctance to try to stab others in the back if it strikes his fancy. I think RobS is at heart an unstable egotist who thinks he has great influence over members of an atheist website. [...] I do think now that RobS is now morphing into what the Soviets call "a useful idiot" and he is in the process of becoming a pawn of an atheist website." #stirthepot --Night Jaguar (talk) 06:15, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
I see kenny is busy editing 7 year old archivesimg now. Replying to a user that anger bear blocked 7 years agoimg Oldusgitus (talk) 09:53, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
The Obama Riots! Adorable, Rob. Just keep saying that, and people will think that these are fundamentally riots about Obama, and not about local police forces and their use of violence. Not a pathetic strategy at all, no. Phiwum (talk) 11:59, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
We're writing history here, and his legacy. The MSM surely has discredited itself in doing this. Everyone instinctively knows what the term means. Now, as they said of Lincoln, he belongs to the ages. nobsI'm not from this planet, but let me tell u what I think.... 12:13, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Andy has an insight.

Come on August get in there and tear his latest one to piecesimg Oldusgitus (talk) 20:21, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Five years ago.img Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 20:35, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
Andy is the only "authority" on the planet who maintains that Jesus wrote "Hebrews." I really think the sole point is to troll AugustO. Whoover (talk) 21:52, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
I remember that insight, I thought this was a new one. Has it really taken him 5 years to actually get around to updating the page on the epistle? Oldusgitus (talk) 05:06, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] A New New Andy Insight!

Math and the Bibleimg - because set theory, the word "infinite" is mentioned three times, and some mathematicians read the Bible.

Let's hope he runs with this, it could be hysterical. PsyGremlinTal! 17:09, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Excellent. Of course, he may want to be somewhat careful about who he picks as examples of religious mathematicians, I mean sure, Gödel read the bible, but I'm not sure Kurt "I like Islam" Gödel is Andy's idea of a good role model. Worm (talk) 12:39, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
What is the connection between mathematical infinity and the use of the word infinite in the Bible? Category error, do not pass go. 31.51.113.23 (talk) 13:29, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Quality Science

JoeyJ has been busy polishing a bunch of science "articles." This one survived as the better of a redundant pair: Radical, manimg. I can't figure out if the author was a parodist or just didn't "get" chemistry. Whoover (talk) 18:40, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

[edit] CP goes 503 all the time

Why in the devil does the CP go "HTTP 503" all the time? What the hell kind of shit server has Andy there? Or does he use the CP server to also download pr0n?!--Arisboch (talk) 12:59, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

My guess is that despite the constant record high number of viewers(!!!!) Andy has never upgraded the servers. AyzmoCheers 13:22, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
I can't imagine Schlafly running servers on his own -- cheap web hosting? Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 13:24, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
