[edit] Hot Alaskan MILF Sarah

Ken needs to adjust his pantsimg, I think. DogP (talk) 15:09, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Hmmm, well we know Rob lusts after the Coultergeist, so Ken has to have somebody in his life. After all Andy and (I assume) Karajerk are married, JPratt is and TerryH is just too creepy and Ed thinks fondly of Bethany. --PsyGremlinPraat! 15:20, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I think 'svelte' was today's entry in Ken's Word-a-day calendar. Jack Hughes (talk) 15:33, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm with Ken on this; Palin is pretty hot in a dumb-redneck-MILF kind of way... DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 15:36, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
You missed the part where he tries to make it seem like he could be female. «-Bfa-» 15:50, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
He's used it before when he was gushing about Chuck Norrisimg, in a very macho, manly way, of course, not homoerotic at all. Röstigraben (talk) 15:48, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Palin is the kind of woman that'd I'd only have sex with if it wasn't consensual. Megyn Kelly too. Occasionaluse (talk) 15:49, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
The teabaggers have all the hot women, which obviously makes you socialists feel threatened. (BTW, the MILF factor exists, it's science!) Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 15:59, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Sarah Palin is super hot, even better looking in person too.--Opcn (talk) 16:02, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I have to say, and may goat forgive me for this, but there is definately something about the coultergeist for me. As long as she kept her mouht shut, or opened it only consensually. I really don't know what it is, she is not really my sort at all but there is something. Oldusgitus (talk) 16:28, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Speaking of semi-consensual sex, I fucked Ann Coulter in the ass, hard still makes me LOL years later. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 16:29, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
He reprised that with an AGAIN version later but being at work I have no intention of looking for the link from here. Oldusgitus (talk) 16:38, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Oh you mean Back in Ann Coulter's Ass-Saddle Again? Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 16:47, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Way to ruin everything by bringing Coulter into this. :P Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 16:49, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, Megyn Kelly - women, I wouldn't touch even if my hands were made out of acid. --Ullhateme (talk) 17:07, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
well look at mister dickproud... --Opcn (talk) 18:21, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
It's not pride it's simplest unattraction. Palin isn't my type anyway (and even then not my age). Coulter and Kelly look too plastic for me. But what do I know, I don't think Megan Fox is hot at all… And after all that I don't want to do crazy bitches (the bad kind, not the good kind), if something goes wrong you're stuck with them for a lifetime! --Ullhateme (talk) 19:05, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I'd say that Sarah Palin borders on burly rather than svelte. not that I wouldn't do her, jk--Brxbrx (talk) 18:36, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
Sarah Palin is not Burly, she is toned, big difference. --Opcn (talk) 19:59, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Im gonna leval with you. I'd hit Sarah. She's a crazy chick, and they're fun. You just have to keep an eye on what they're hands are doing. Particularly one as well armed as Palin. But back to my last point: Sarah Palin = rawr 8D--Thunderstruck (talk) 21:47, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] August O.

Over the last days, I followed August's attempts to show how Andy Schlafly mistranslated a verse (John 4-53) to fit his agenda (see hereimg and hereimg). The back-and-forth now found its logical conclusion with August being banned for liberal trolling. I was quite amused by these dialogues, and the wisdom shown by Karajou - but perhaps I'm just easy to be pleased. larronsicut fur in nocte 19:31, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

Easily amused liberal. Sometimes reading Andy is like reading English words, but they don't actually form English sentences. Except instead of sentences, for him it's thoughts. --YossarianSpeak, Memory 19:55, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I wish I'd used the Schafly approach when I did Ancient Greek O-level (showing my age there...) Decide what you want it to mean in English, make the Greek words fit your chosen translation and blast the teacher to kingdom come if he shows his ignorance by correcting you. Simples. The Real James Brown (talk) 00:17, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
And we see Popeye the "la or ta" Karajou delivering the coup de grâce. I bet he thinks along these lines whilst he's blocking people: "It's the little things that count." 01:46, 24 March 2011 (UTC) C®ackeЯ
Andy's at it againimg, and, wouldn't you know, this "more accurate" translation (apparently) fits in perfectly with his agendaimg. But seriously, this is a stretch in so many ways. --Tabrcg23 (talk) 05:52, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
It's Andy's favorite approach to well-reasoned criticism: Get the editor blocked, wash your hands (it's not before dinner, is it :-) and pretend that nothing ever happened. Or, as August O. said in this self-fulfilling prophecy:
I'll revert your reversion of my edit - and perhaps I get blocked for this, though I am giving ample reason for my acts. Thus you could avoid to address my points, and ignore them like quite a few arguments against items in the list of counterexamples. As Rschlafly said: All of the other items also have explanations that do not contradict relativity. But I hope that you just answer the following questions: [...]
Needless to say that the following question were never answered - and won't be anytime soon....

Only Liberals think that Jesus lived 30-something years at all. His entire life happened in one instant. This is why before the year 0 is BC and after the year 0 is AD. AD doesn't start at the year 37 or whatever. Deny this and lose all credibility. X Stickman (talk) 12:45, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
For the sake of fairness, "AD" does not stand for "after death," rather "Anno Domini." So you're chasing a bit of a strawman there. Never mind though that Jesus was probably born 4 BC. Junggai (talk) 12:50, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Erm, for truth's sake there is absolutely no historical basis for the belief that anyone known as jesus was ever born at all. Oldusgitus (talk) 12:54, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Au contraire, I graduated high school with about 10 guys named Jesus. Junggai (talk) 13:10, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Srsly just pick up the San Antonio phone book and open it to Martinez if you want historical evidence for enough Jesuses to fill a school bus. Suck it, Tacitus and Josephus! Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 15:47, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Retention Rate

I added a new section on the retention rate (remember this?) to Conservapedia's article of Conservapedia:Active users. But perhaps the information should be put somewhere else? larronsicut fur in nocte 09:12, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

LIBERAL BIAS. Read a bible and build a hospital you close minded trolls. Godspeed.--Thunderstruck (talk) 20:17, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
You're citing a study done by professors from a university? You mean a liberal done by a liberal from a liberal ... of liberals? Occasionaluse (talk) 20:19, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
"Gooners" (welcome and hello, but abide by our rules or else your account will be blocked), depression is so prevalent among Canadians that I wonder why you spend so much time disputing this insight. I've analyzed your unconcise replies and nearly every one of your postings here includes a puerile, sneering remark, so I'm confident you're a victim of Professor values. Like all liberals, you deny that creationism deters breast cancer. You can whine all you want, but the half-life of Carbon-14 may have only been 100 years at the time of Christ. That's basic logic, though I'm not optimistic that you or other liberals will admit it. Open-minded people who respect logic have no difficulty elevating logic over personal whim. And you still haven't answered the question. Suit yourself, but I'm moving on.--Andy Schlafly 13:15, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Greatest Conservative Movies---Qualification

I was scrolling and trolling through the list of Greatest Conservative Movies. First, I was annoyed to crap about the 87 different styles they use for the movies...some have: Title (Year). Description...others have: Title (Year), Description....or Title (Year--sometimes no year) - Description (or no description). FIGURE OUT YOUR FORMATTING AND MAKE IT UNIFORM!
But that's a side annoyance...currently #60 is Courageousimg with the description: "Upcoming Sherwood Pictures film focusing on the role of fathers." Now, Jinx added this back in April of 2010, and the description still hasn't changed. But SERIOUSLY?! It's one of the Greatest Conservative Movies, without ever having been watched? Just the fact that it's from a Christian production company means it's going to be one of the Greatest? Why not just admit that as long as it claims to be Christian, it's the Greatest, and be done with these fake "reasons." I wish more awards were given out for movies that hadn't come out yet.64.30.2.130 (talk) 23:37, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

You, 64.30.2.130, are going to scour the film known as Courageous, and I don't care how you do it. You can use a DVD or take a jet to attend a screening, but you are going to go over every frame of that movie before you carry on with your opinion in this website. That is the only way I will accept from you the proof needed that the film Courageous isn't one of the greatest conservative movies of all time. Occasionaluse (talk) 02:20, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Wow, it's almost like he's right here on the wiki! 03:08, 24 March 2011 (UTC) C®ackeЯ
A disproportionate number of them star Ronald Reagan, including the most likely apolitical Knute Rockne, All-American, which is about college football. Maybe Assfly isn't aware that Reagan starred in a movie with our distant cousin, the chimp, and attempted to teach it to be like us. I demand that all of his films be taken off the list immediately. Flubber (talk) 03:13, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Deny it all you want "Flubber" , (if that is your real name), but Reagan's body double did all of his acting until he got into the White House. (The body double then went on vacation to Florida and got caught in a rip tide and was lost at sea. We now know he became Castro's body double and has everyone [including Fidel's brother Raul] fooled into thinking Che's lover is still alive!) Oh and prayer in schools, blah blah blah. 03:22, 24 March 2011 (UTC) C®ackeЯ
There is a 95% chance you support liberal causes. Deny this and lose all credibility. Flubber (talk) 03:37, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Conservapeda's law

has got to be one of the most ridiculousimg politicotheological conversations I've ever read. Someone needs to make this a funny WIGO. --Opcn (talk) 04:03, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

It looks like someone was doing math homework and then Mad Libbed in the words "conservative" and some Biblical figures. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 04:13, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Does Andy know what a limit is? Or does he think mathematical limits are too close to government regulation? Flubber (talk) 04:40, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Right before the Great Flood it was pretty bleak; afterward, things were in good shape at least initially.
Oh Andy you card. ONE / TALK 08:35, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
"I'd guess it's been a geometric growth in conservatism since Jesus." Wow, Andy. All that's missing is "culminating in the creation of Conservapedia." However, I rather agree with his geometric growth - it wasn't long between 0AD and the Dark Ages, Inquisition, witch hunts. Luckily around that time, God created liberals, to instil some balance. --PsyGremlinSermā! 10:02, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Heads up folks, this conversation appears to be trending asymptotically towards One Of The Greatest Andy Conversations Ever. Truly amazing signs of actual, real, failure to cope with the real world here. Someone ought to call social services the cops now and get those homeschool students away from this demented individual. --DogP (talk) 04:48, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
Well you wouldn't expect a future with Andys disjointed and schizophrenic policy suggestions. --Opcn (talk) 06:06, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
Sometimes I wonder if Andy deserves his own class of logical fallacy. He has basically redefined the word "logical" to mean "agreeable to Schlafly." Corry (talk) 12:16, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
This is worth a WIGO because Andy essentially said, "When everyone was dead we had perfect conservatismimg". --Leotardo (talk) 14:57, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Andy's amazing coincidence

In fairness to Andy (did I just type those words?), theists in general interpret their religions' holy books to back up what they wanted to believe anyway. Andy isn't the only one to follow the first rule of religion; he's just one of the more brazen about it. ... of liberals? (talk) 17:20, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

I don't think he's even more brazen about it than most theists. It's just the things he wants to believe are exceedingly weird. Jesus did action-at-a-distance magic, therefore relativity is false? That's 1 in 10^10 level kookery right there. Most other theists are just trying to convince themselves that ancient Jewy slavery was nice slavery, or that god is down with you eating prawns. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:20, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
And he had to make up an archaic meaning of the word "behold" - which just meant "Lookee Here!", and if you want to get archaic, meant at one time "to hold". All this info is available in the dictionary. Gooners (talk) 18:54, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
I always found it weird that there was so much anti-relativity crankery on CP. Usually I think of Petr Beckmann or Time Cube types who think they disproved relativity and found something new and revolutionary to replace it with. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 19:06, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
It's just Andy's desire to be a little creative and explore new paths of insanity. He simply took the Creationism/Evolution template and forced it on other unsuspecting scientific theories, even though nobody besides him sees the "controversies". And once Andy has embarked on a particular course, he'll defend it to the end, no matter what. If some parodist socks open-minded, legitimate users keep inquiring about his unusual views on plate tectonics, I bet he'll make this a central part of CP doctrine, too. Röstigraben (talk) 19:24, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Andy's real religion is conservatism. If God personally told Andy He was liberal, Andy would become a satanist. --Night Jaguar (talk) 22:32, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
It's difficult to separate Andy's politics and his religion. But given that he invariably bends the religion to fit his politics I concur that 'conservatism' is his real faith.  Lily Inspirate me. 07:56, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
Again, that's something that many theists do. I've known enough who have contorted or outright dismissed any parts of their religions that conflicted with their secular politics. I've seen people of a wide variety of political persuasions do this, and, of course, they're all sure that God or the Gods agree with them. ... of liberals? (talk) 11:40, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Nevermind...

...that 8 years out of those ten the country was ruled by a Republican right-wing hypocrite, that were several economic crisis hitting the country hard and that the auto industry in Detroit was and is not up to the international competition. It's all the liberal's fault!img --Ullhateme (talk) 19:41, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

GM, however, is a case where labor did help to create the problem -- the joke was that GM was a pension plan that just happened to make cars. UAW did offer a number of concessions after 2008, though. Not to mention that GM was run mismanaged by Rick "just build more SUVs!" Wagoner. Of course, that translates to "liberals blew up the city!" in Andyland. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 20:22, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
IMO, the execs should have cut their salaries to pay for the workers' benefits--Brxbrx (talk) 22:17, 24 March 2011 (UTC)
Agree with Brxbrx - it's always the workers, never the management that get hit. But really - do they really believe the bullshit spin they put on things? I mean, I'm glad that they post dumb shit like this because it keeps the intelligence of CP low - no thinking person would read that and go, "Well, sounds like these guys know what they are talking about!" --Leotardo (talk) 02:02, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
The reality is that the managers get rewarded for cutting costs (laying off workers or cutting their benefits).  Lily Inspirate me. 07:43, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
It's simply not true that it's "never the management". At my company senior people have cut their own wages, some board members have agreed not to draw pay, and two executives have effectively fired themselves (recommended to the board that it made more sense to terminate their position than try to save the same money by firing less expensive staff who were more vital). I miss those people, they were really good at their jobs and hiring replacements when things pick up will be difficult.
Unions are a problem. They were once a huge step forward, but today as often as not they represent the most selfish and thoughtless ideas of their members, plus a hunger for political power from their leaders. Enough that I would now not join a union. In my country the railway workers union wanted to authorise strike action over working time for a specific type of safety-critical worker. Similar workers exist in other industries, and there is a restriction on their working time, they should do no more than six hours per shift, with eight hours as a legal maximum. On the railways these workers had been working 12 hour shifts.
You might think the unions wanted the shifts made shorter (note that this makes no difference to hours worked and thus pay). That would make sense right, the long shifts are known to be dangerous, and the unions are all about safety for their workers and for the public, right? No. They wanted a firm commitment that their members could work 12 hour shifts. Working this way means more "off days" for workers which they enjoy. Sure, there may be more accidents, but that's a small price to pay for an extra day off work apparently. 82.69.171.94 (talk) 12:43, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
There are unions that go too far. For example in France this seems to be case - first they go on a warning strike complete with demonstration in public and then they say what their demands are. And some managements actually care about their company that's why they cut down their own wages and what not. But let's be honest, that's mostly smaller companies and not the big multi-national conglomarates of globalized capitalism. Weren't there various studies that showed that the rate of sociopaths and psychopaths in management is way higher than the average workers? It explained a lot to me…
(And one for the way: I can't say how much I enjoy the country pushing for globalized capitalism for 20 years now getting basically fucked in the ass by it's own creation - it's like seeing a hillbilly shooting himself in the foot and the best idea he has is to shoot his other food too, because it's the only medicine he knows. Yes, I'm looking over the big pond at you America.) --Ullhateme (talk) 13:12, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
And if I take the spelling of "authorise" to mean Mr. 82.69 is British, there is a strong social safety net you guys have that make many of the extraordinary demands made by British unions to be exactly that. Here in the US, it's eat or be eaten, and the unions are one of the few protectors of a middle class way of life for workers who otherwise have virtually no safety net. Do they go too far themselves? Sure. But here in the U.S., that management gives themselves huge raises with the money from the salaries of those they fire is odious. --Leotardo (talk) 16:10, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Martyp

I think Martyp may be on to something. I don't think they are looking for yes-men anymore. In the old days, all you had to do was agree with everything. Now, if you don't disagree with something, you're suspect. Marty has disagreed with CP on the labor unions (prominently quoting former saint labor union president Reagan on his userpage) and has mocked/ridiculed Ken. In this new era of hyper-paranoia, your concerns must be voiced, but not pushed once the cabal waves their hand. Otherwise, you will be the subject of concerns. Occasionaluse (talk) 19:46, 24 March 2011 (UTC)

Wrong. Skinner's superstitious pigeons. That is all. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 04:31, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

I really don't understand the point Andy is trying to make:
If, as atheists think, religion is foolish, than animals less intelligent than humans should display the reverence. They don't.img
So if something is dumb, then animals would do it. Funny, I've yet to see an animal drinking and driving. Or appearing on Jerry Springer. However, I love Andy's "There is no plausible evolutionary explanation for religion." Oh to be able to sit down and talk memes and memeplexes with the man. In fact, I'd say there is an evolutionary explanation - group identity; who belongs in our tribe and who doesn't. --PsyGremlinFale! 10:25, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Bering's latest "Princess Alice" experiment is about God-as-supervisor. In a task where it's possible to "cheat" will children who are told they're supervised by an imaginary "Princess Alice" act like those who are unsupervised, or those supervised by a human adult? Children who don't express scepticism of Alice's reality behave like the supervised group. This has an interesting consequence if we assume adults are somewhat the same: If your god's rules are good rules on the whole then he's much cheaper than real supervision and this is a win for believers even if their god isn't real. But if they're bad rules the non-believers benefit by cheating, that is, disobeying the bad rules because they know they aren't really being watched. 82.69.171.94 (talk) 15:42, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Except that The Second Law of Thermodynamics only applies to a closed system, where no energy can enter or leave the system as a whole. There the system will tend to equilibrium.

Reminds me of my favourite FSTDT quote[3]:
One of the most basic laws in the universe is the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This states that as time goes by, entropy in an environment will increase. Evolution argues differently against a law that is accepted EVERYWHERE BY EVERYONE. Evolution says that we started out simple, and over time became more complex. That just isn't possible: UNLESS there is a giant outside source of energy supplying the Earth with huge amounts of energy. If there were such a source, scientists would certainly know about it.

To answer your questionimg: no, it won't.

Facebook could conceivably go from boom to bust. However, it will not be because people abandon it for Conservapedia, any more than people abandoned Wikipedia for your insignificant little blog. MDB (talk) 11:38, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Seeing as about the only people using MySpace for the past few years have been indie bands, I wonder where they all went to. Certainly not CP, nobody's going there. --Kels (talk) 12:05, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
Facebook will do ok until the Next Big Thing comes along (which won't be Diaspora - their last blog update is 31 Jan), or they sell to MS / Google. But if Andy's thinking he's going to pick up all those people (most of whom will be banned anyway for being furriners), then his delusions are reaching dangerous levels. Maybe he's bi-polar and this is the manifestation of his "up" swing. How long before he's walking on roof tops, al a Richard Gere? --PsyGremlinHable! 12:26, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Don't be silly. Good right-thinking conservatives think he should be allowed to stay, so liberals must want him deported post-haste, because liberals oppose everything conservatives support.

Thankfully, the superstitions and mythology that CP believes in are going extinct. Ha ha. Keep worshiping your magic man while the rest of us focus on reality. --Leotardo (talk) 15:55, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

The spin from one of my favorite writers:

Well, here’s a shocker: America’s most deluded religious group, the fundamentalist Christians, “are 50 percent more likely to turn into obese middle-agers as those with no religious involvement.” Being dumb and poor and racist and homophobic apparently wasn’t enough for Jeebus’ true children here in America — now they’re doomed to fatness, too. Again, this is according to Scientists who studied people who go to church all the time. There are many theories, including one by Purdue University sociologist Ken Ferraro that “churches are a feeding ground for gluttony and obesity.” But what about religions and philosophies that demand moderation in eating, like Buddhism? Not so many Buddhists in America, we guess! What about Catholics? They are mostly alcoholics, plus they rarely go to church except for the big holidays because they’re scared the priest is going to rape their kids again.

Oh, and fundamentalists are most likely to be the lardiest of the religious lard asses, according to the study. --Leotardo (talk) 18:02, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

It seems like JPatt's posts are getting more and more nonsensical. I can usually figure out what he's getting at, but he constantly omits words, uses the wrong word, mixes tenses, misspells shit and has no coherent grammar or syntax to speak of. The latest exmaple:

  • The repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell has it's first causality: Army Chaplains. They are told resign from service, or face court-martial for their “religious, conscience” objections.

Jpatt, I know you're an avid reader: if/when you proofread, try focusing on reading one word at a time and actually "say" it in your head and pause before continuing. It will help you catch all these mistakes. Occasionaluse (talk) 18:14, 25 March 2011 (UTC)Occasionaluse (talk) 18:14, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

They should be forced to retire if they can't live with the repeal of DADT. How fucking awful would it be if just before some major engagement or such like the chaplain decides to bless(if you believe in that sort of thing) or put some folks mind at ease but not others because they are gay? If they can't put aside your petty hatreds for people who may be about to be killed or maimed in the name of their country, then they can just fuck off. AMassiveGay (talk) 20:03, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Because they are sadistic little fucks with the empathy of a half eaten sandwitch. Their misery and self deprecation driven ideology doesn't give them many avenues of guilt free pleasure so they just channel all that in hurting other people (whom they also hate for having more fun than them). Which is a type of pleasure too but they can disguise as "helping people find the right way", thus not really self driven. Its the same reason the inquisition's tortures were unesseserily cruel and how the "thou-shall-not-kill/turn-the-other-cheek" Christians have somehow ended up masturbating in their little forums about how they would "carpet bomb" this and "nuke" that, and that collateral damage doesn't matter.

It's simple. The ones wanting people to pay for net content fail to realise the audience is many many times bigger than the traditional one, so charging a very small sum is what would work; 200 people paying 1 cent each is better than 1 person paying 1 dollar. Then again, people actually use iTunes and pay for songs there, despite the fact it costs more than buying the CD... O_o Dendlai (talk) 14:00, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
I don't know if I agree with that. If I buy 10 songs on iTunes it is ten bucks; whereas I well remember buying CDs that had 10 songs on them (including ones that weren't good) for $18.99. The price of music has vastly declined in the last 10 years, particularly with the ala carte model of iTunes. --Leotardo (talk) 14:10, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
$18.99 for a CD??? I just remember checking Bowie's 70s albums, and it was basically $1 per song on iTunes, and NOT including the extra tracks, while the CDs cost about $8-10, and included the bonus tracks (like all releases since the 80s except the iTunes one) meaning it was 15+ songs for 50 cent each compared to iTunes 11 for a dollar each... I decided iTunes was a rip-off after that. Dendlai (talk) 14:21, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
It depends on where you buy them. Good music stores have CDs for $10 or so, but electronics outlets and book stores that still carry CDs inflate the price dramatically. 江斯顿What is it now? 14:46, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
Thing is. Many people don't actually like all songs out of a CD/Band. Rather they just like a couple of tracks (often from different CDs), in which case iTunes ends up cheaper. Sen (talk) 16:29, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
If you look into it, CD prices were kept artificially high. -Lardashe
Indeed. And a buck a song - if it's good - is a really good deal. 45s used to cost a buck 30 years ago. And most bands struggle to make two good songs a year. The only exceptions are the really good "albums" where you get 14 great songs for 8 bucks (old money) or 18 bucks (digital money). ħumanUser talk:Human 06:31, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Going to church increases odds of obesity

http://www.rationalresponders.com/forum/29208

Regular worshippers are 50% more likely to be obese by middle age

Going to church may be good for a person's soul - but it is not so beneficial for their waistline, it has been claimed.

U.S. researchers say Sunday worship can be just bad for your health as burgers and chips.

Experts at a Chicago university found those who worship regularly were 50 per cent more likely to be obese by middle age compared to non-religious people.

They are not quite sure why, though some say that because eating during church services has traditionally been allowed, worshippers were inclined to munch their way through the sermon.

The study into obesity and churtchgoing was led by Matthew Feinstein, a fourth-year student at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.

It looked at the lives of 2,433 people in Chicago, Minneapolis, Birmingham, Alabama and Oakland, California.

He said: 'We don’t know why frequent religious participation is associated with development of obesity, but the upshot of these findings highlight a group that could benefit from targeted efforts at obesity prevention.

'It’s possible that getting together once a week and associating good works and happiness with eating unhealthy foods could lead to the development of habits that are associated with greater body weight and obesity.'

Some church-goers believe there might be a historical link between tucking into too many burgers and praising the Lord.

Courtney Parker, the catering manager for the 20,000-member Apostolic Church of God in Woodlawn, told the Sun Times, in the past, church services were long and eating was one of the few things that was not taboo.

He added: 'So the first thing you do is go eat, and then you go to sleep.'

He knows the Gallop poll doesn't support the conclusion that atheists are more likely to be obese since it focuses on healthy lifestyle habits. He also knows that there are real scientific studies in addition to the new Northwestern study proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that religionists are more likely to be obese. We know that he'll ignore this evidence because it's contrary to his mission of smearing atheists. That's his apologetic style in a nutshell.

Do any of these studies control for anything? I'm guessing religion-fatness connection is an artifact of location, i.e., there's higher rates of obesity and religiosity in the south and midwest than the coasts. Urbanites actually have to walk places. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 00:31, 26 March 2011 (UTC)

Andy has stated several times that he thinks books are filled with "liberal claptrap" and generally shows contempt for books.

I had a thought, this chilly Sunday morning... I wonder if he's written a book that's been rejected by every publisher to whom he's submitted it. Considering his mindset of "everything bad is because of libb-burr-ulls", perhaps he's decided that the publishing is just chokc-full of liberals rejecting his brilliant work.

You might be on to something there. We all know that Andy can hold a grudge for a long, long time. Plus his past is littered with failures, for which he no doubt blames somebody else, i.e. librulls. Let's have a quick look at possible scenarios:
  • Failed to become President of the HLR - Obama's fault
  • Failed to win GOP nomination to House - RINO's fault
  • Failed to earn full professorship at wherever he as an adjunct prof - the fault of Professor values
  • Been ostracised everywhere on-line (like talk.origins & WP) except CP - evil wikipedia and social media ganging up on him
I'm sure if we dig deeper, we'll find a failure corresponding to each of Andy's crazy toes. --PsyGremlinRunāt! 12:40, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
That would make a lot of sense. From a look at his "classes" you can tell that the guy likes to write and to write a lot (I'm not the one to talk on that one btw). But for it to be rejected it had to be something amazingly insane. Of course his whole "books are bad accept that one GOD wrote" attitude could just simply stem from his experience at college. If college is the same as over here, the people that are the most liberal read huge amounts of stuff. So there you go too: Liberals read books → books make you liberal → liberals are bad → conservatives are good → conservatives do good → conservatives don't read books → book stores closing down makes the world more conservative → Less books make the world a better place → Andy is a teacher → ///SYSTEM FAILURE/// --Ullhateme (talk) 12:58, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
On the other hand, you know how he loves conciseness. His book would probably be:
Chapter 1: Why Liberals are Evil
I don't need to provide evidence for this because it's clearly true.
Chapter 2: Why RINOs are Bad
There's no need to provide evidence for such a clearly logical insight.

Doubt it. His Engineering degree from Princeton (cum laude, no less) would be a ticket to just about any reputable grad school. P-Foster (talk) 15:43, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Colleges as liberal indoctrination camps is old, at least going back to the '60s when all the colleges were run by DFHs (Dirty fucking hippies), so I don't think it has to do with Andy getting rejected for some position. The funny thing is how professors are all just liberal propagandists but Andy is proud of his students when they get accepted to whatever college. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 16:26, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
I'd be willing to bet that Andy's hatred for professors stems from his college days. It is hard to say what he was like back then, but if his arrogance and intellectual stubbornness was even a fraction of what it was now, I would imagine he would have butted heads with a number of professors. To get an engineering degree you have to take some classes in humanities. Even in the 80s I imagine those classes would have conflicted with the worldview laid out by his mom and led to conflict with his teachers and fellow students. Give those experiences 25 years to stew around in his skull and you have "professor values." --Marlow (talk) 16:36, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
Maybe, but like I said, "professor values" is old meme, Andy just gave it a handy nickname. I went to a fairly conservative high school and there was talk of professor values. Read some wingnut sites and they all hate universities and professors. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 16:48, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
You are right, Andy didn't invent "professor values", but I do think his disdain for higher education is in part due to his experiences in college. --Marlow (talk) 17:35, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Wingnuts do not hate education, at least not all of them.

[edit] Rise and Fall of Andy

This has probably been brought up before, but what happened to Andy's career? It starts out so promising with serious degrees and honors from some of the best institutions in the world. He has major political connections through his mom. It was like he was being groomed for high political office, but now he is at best a private practice lawyer with a blog (I'm skeptical about how much work he gets). What brought on this downfall? I know some people have speculated that he is an alcoholic, which might explain it, but there might be other factors. To me it seems that he has become increasingly delusional overtime. Any thoughts? --Marlow (talk) 17:31, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Don't believe the alcoholic nonsense. He's just got an incompetent brain and (very) poor relationship skills and a feeling of hereditary entitlement which is greatly disappointed. If he hadn't been born with money he'd be working in McDonalds - as a floor sweeper. --Scream!! (talk) 17:49, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
I guess the issue is whether he could graduate with honors in his current state. I say no. While I'll be the first to admit that plenty of intellectually lazy people graduate from colleges like Princeton, Andy has a certain delusional arrogance, that I think would be a big handicap. Something has changed since his college days. --Marlow (talk) 18:00, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
I don't see any evidence of Andy having an income outside of the AAPS, except unless he's being paid for the courses he runs over at Eagle Forum U. Wingnut welfare at work. Concernedresident omg!!! ponies!!!

(EC)Andy did once run for a political office of some sort, but came 5th in the Republican primary. As for his current state of mind, I have a hard time believing that he was this unintelligent when he was younger. I think he did speak of having an epiphany of some sort in his 30's that made him more conservative and Christian. At present, he's simply very intellectually lazy, has a strong sense of victimization and a VERY (at times) strong sense of importance. On a few occasions, Andy has given the North Korean propaganda arm a run for their self-delusional money. @CR - there was a lot of speculation on his homeschooling business after a couple of courses fizzled out after a few weeks last year. I think the general conclusion was that he's moved them off CP, which is a great blow to the 'family friendly encyclopaedia'.EddyP Great King! Disaster! 18:20, 27 March 2011 (UTEddyP Great King!

Well everything we can do is speculate because we'll probably never really know what goes on in his head. Maybe something happened to him in 2000 for which he had to find an enemy/guilty party/some comfort. Anyhow, the worst thing about it is that Andy seems rather intelligent (relatively speaking - of course besides Ken, TK, Karajou and Ed a stone looks very intelligent too), just to keep believing and getting out of all this what he needs, he has to be delusional, throw logic overboard a.s.o. If he his not so stupid, it's a tragidy of how his psychological deficits (maybe his strong and independent and at the same time strict mother caused this, so that he now has to grap every single chance of acknowledgment?) fucked-up all his chances to be somebody slightly important.

I doubt he made any money off the recall stuff. Those were vanity efforts to raise his stature.

Very little money involved in teabagging. --Leotardo (talk) 13:32, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
He surrounds himself with an echo chamber in Conservapedia, which does nothing for his intellectual growth and only feeds her paranoia fantasies and his deluded self-importance.

Judge not lest ye be judged yourself! CS Miller (talk) 22:30, 27 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm always kind of surprised to see the speculation about Andy. He seems to be very open-and-shut. He came from money, he went through the best education money could buy. He resented some - probably most - of his teachers. However, he had been taught to not start fights with those in authority. He was willing to give them answers they wanted on tests and such. His is not an alcoholic. I suspect that he treats his family fine. In real life, he's kind of skittish. His persona online is very different, and it's a consequence of 1)his personal echo chamber egging him on, and 2)constant internal anxiety that someone is out to make him look bad. Although I don't think he thinks he can be made to look bad. The reason he wouldn't be working in a more prestigious occupation is because first, he doesn't actually have as much interest in engineering. It was a means to an end. He has more interest in the law, but I don't think he's interested in putting the time and effort into working in a real legal practice. However, he is interested in pursuing legal actions that are of interest to him. The homeschooling thing is something that I think he just fell into. He didn't want his daughter going to public school, so he looked into homeschooling. He saw how much it cost to hire outside teachers, and figured that with his credentials, he could do it too. He probably enjoys it, although it's hard to get a sense of how much effort he puts into it, since I think CP only reflects a tiny portion of what goes on.
I would say that Andy is a typical evangelical conservative, he's just one who has given himself the means of presenting himself as a force bigger than he is. - Lardashe
AFAIK, Andy's children weren't homeschooled; I think they went to public or private school, though I could be wrong. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 23:48, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

The AT&T stuff is very interesting because it shows Andy's flawed intellect effected him professionally. I only read the bit on this site, but this quote speaks volumes: "The scenarios that Schlafly describes....do not involve situations in which the AT&T customer uses AT&T’s service..." Lawyers are creative thinkers because they have to imagine scenarios that might arise and then come up with ways to protect their clients against those possibilities. This is why people say lawyers complicate everything. At the beginning of a transaction often everyone involved thinks everything will work out awesome, so why do the stupid lawyers have to plan for failure? They think that until those scenarios come up, and then they are glad. What is being said here is that Andy took strange scenarios that were irrelevant to AT&T's service and argued that they could be problems. In other words, because he could imagine something he felt it was reality, but his scenario didn't match reality-reality. --Leotardo (talk) 13:42, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
Andy probably screwed up at AT&T because of his black and white or them and us take on reality. He worked for AT&T so 'us = good" and concluded AT&T must be right. He didn't look at the case at all. A proper lawyer would have concluded AT&T didn't have much of a case and would have likely suggested an out-of-court settlement thus saving AT&T a lot of money.

And more on-topic, Ken's internet knowledge is highly specialized - he had been rambling about SEO before he even understood how to upload an image on the wiki.

Andy thinks it means that a person who worked in government gets a private jobimg, even when that job has nothing to do with lobbying the government. He also repeats that Facebook breaks up marriages, when the source for that argument was a preacher who was found to be having orgies in his church (often with another man tag-teaming his wife!). --Leotardo (talk) 14:00, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

What I find most bizarre about Conservapedia is that it shows how on the extreme right they have so embraced victimization that they blame others for their own personal problems.

(EC) That concept is a bit old and was introduced with "the devil". He wants you to sin and you have to resist it. We can find it again and again (very much like a trope) in christian conservatism: They want to make our children sin → FCC/PTC and a shitload of censorship, Hypocrisy → Satan, Facebook, Video Games, Marilyn Manson and all that stuff, Economy's bad → liberals are holding it back. They have to keep up their delusions and paranoia because they'd loose everything they believed in if it weren't true - it's pathetic. But the worst thing is that the old part of them actually sinning (fucking it up) isn't mentioned anymore - it's there when they need it (economy) but not if they could keep others involved in their rage. They have given up their ideals to support their ideals with technisques that their ideals forbid.

I'd be surprised if Ed notices the death of his latest creation. CP has become to Ed what posting comments on random blogs is to most people. He bumbles around CP, pausing occasionally to pull apart his cheeks so another Edism can fall out behind him. Yup, it's a very bad sign when Ken "Does x have machismo?" DeMyer has to step in to remove pointless crap. Concernedresident omg!!! ponies!!! 17:44, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] How to handle sources CP-style

Andy ignores one event that isn't good publicity and missinterpreds the French Front National as conservativeimg. --UHMharassme 16:55, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Yup, it's the BNP blunder redux. Andy sees the word "conservative/right-wing," figures it means what he wants it to mean, doesn't bother to read past the headline, makes an ass of himself. Awesome. P-Foster (talk) 17:02, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
What? FN is right-wing, but in the economic nationalism Pat Buchanan sense rather than the free trade neoliberal sense. Though I imagine Andy wouldn't like FN's pro-public sector stance on a number of issues, he can just selectively ignore those because conservative = good. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 17:22, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
as a frenchman, I must say that the national front is quite far-right--Brxbrx (talk) 17:37, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
" FN is right-wing, but in the economic nationalism Pat Buchanan sense rather than the free trade neoliberal sense." You should prolly read about the party's founder's stance on some non-economic issues. P-Foster (talk) 17:46, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
see, this shit makes me glad I'm living in the states now. You can't get away with that shit here. On the other hand, maybe she'll end up getting arrested by anti-racism laws... mmm... that would be a GOOD violation of freedom of speech--Brxbrx (talk) 17:53, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Heh, raging xenophobe, just like Pat Buchanan, which is notably whitewashed out of Buchanan's CP page. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 18:19, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Let's say it this way: If Andy actually supports what the FN and BNP blurb out, it's ok for me. But then he's not a case for an asylum but for Homeland Security.. --UHMharassme 18:54, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
"On 21 June 1995, he attacked singer Patrick Bruel on his policy of no longer singing in the city of Toulon because the city had just elected a mayor from the National Front. Le Pen said, "the city of Toulon will then have to get along without the vocalisations of singer Benguigui". Benguigui, an Algerian name, is Bruel's name at birth." Andy loves that kind of shit; just ask Barack HUSSEIN Obama. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 19:14, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

So DDoS attacks are like... a superpower that Liberals have? Awesome, I guess. I'm gonna go use my powers on some choice websites. Also this line: " It's no different then when someone comes into your room and changes the channel from the TV program you were watching, just to force you to watch what he likes." made me laugh. It's totally different than that! It's more like blocking one channel, not actively forcing you to watch a specific one! That's a terrible, terrible analogy.

I like how Boss Tweed was somehow a Liberal, based on the tried-and-true metric of "he did something bad". --Kels (talk) 02:47, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
He was a liberal because he was a Democrat, and all Democrats, even the ones 150 years ago who were pro-slavery, are automatically liberal. As are about half of the Republicans (who are actually RINOs). Yet somehow conservatives still outnumber liberals by something like 5 to 1. Conservapedian mathematics. DickTurpis (talk) 03:08, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Er, why does he think that his cartoon was the cause of the DDOS exactly? Phiwum (talk) 02:48, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
He needs to feel important, so he makes things like this up. Senator Harrison (talk) 03:02, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Yep, because he is a CP sysop, so he has massive delusions as to the impact their pathetic efforts make. To Kowardjerk, "liberals" are so pissed off that he's elegantly exposed to nonsesne that is their religion of evilution, that "liberals" have attempted to shut down his operation because they can't stand to be shown up like this. The fact that it's a bunch of script kiddies fannying around doesn't occur to him; in fact by his reckoning he is right, it IS liberals doing this; as anyone who does something bad (or merely something they don't like) is a de facto liberal. It's like us whining "We took the piss out of Kowardjerk's cartoon, and now the conservative young universe christians are attacking us!" Phiwum, I would highly recommend browsing Conservaleaks to get an idea of just how deluded they actually are. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 06:06, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
He's a bit like Ken in this regard - he can't understand the difference between "ridicule" and "anger." He mistakes us going "WTF?" with moral outrage. The only thing his cartoon offends is the viewer's intelligence. What really offended was the rank hypocrisy of the douche. Still, I see it's got them bleating again in the Soopah Seekrit chat room. And, of course, we are Anonymous. --PsyGremlinTal! 10:08, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I think that is partly because for him/them ridicule stems from their anger. They are in the main deeply and abidingly angry people. Angry with the world, angry with their imaginary friend, angry with the government but basically the root of it is they are angry at their own impotence and inconsequence. So they ridicule that which they blame for their own failings - in this case libruls. So they assume that for all of us ridicule stems from anger and they simply do not understand that ridicule can come from a different place entirely, a place which will be forever foreign to them in their impotent rage.

Script kiddies vandalize websites both for the thrill of it and to increase their reputation among their peers.[4] Some more malicious script kiddies have used virus toolkits to create and propagate the Anna Kournikova and Love Bug viruses.[1] Script kiddies lack, or are only developing, coding skills sufficient to understand the effects and side effects of their work. As a result, they leave significant traces which lead to their detection, or directly attack companies which have detection and countermeasures already in place, or in recent cases, leave automatic crash reporting turned on.

Yeah, you hit the nail on the head. Having had my empirical outlook on the natural world and my secular humanist approach to ethics and morality utterly destroyed by the defense of the most logical book in the world, a compendium of a Bronze Age Levantine tribe's attempts to make sense of the world around them, I am convulsing with rage and confusion. Ergo DDoS. Corry (talk) 14:00, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I love this blog post he wrote! He sounds absolutely retarded comparing Boss Tweed to liberals DDOSing Conservapedia. Anger Bear doesn't realize what an effective tool for liberals that CP has become in making their ideas seem unpalatable.

Totally! More banning, bile and name-calling. Love it! CP's mistake is assuming that the people on this chat board are representative of liberals, and by nature of our love of watching CP, we are very much not typical liberals. That they play to us instead of making themselves seem reasonable and respectable is one of my favorite symbiotic relationships on the Internet. We get to laugh and ridicule them, and they make themselves more wild-eyed and offensive just to piss us off. --Leotardo (talk) 14:37, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
when they are faced with an idea they don't like; they try to shut it down. - Yes, he is right. That's why the ultra-liberal Obama has shut down all churches and conservative projects since he got into office. That's why the Tea Party demonstration are all ended with police throwing people into jail. That's why there simply weren't any churches in communist countries. That's why we have a whole freaking site that is dedicated mostly to "conservatives" topics pushing the popularity of CP up through in Google. That's why we evil liberals do not allow normal sexual habbits even if we find them pretty uninteresting. That's why you're blog isn't online anymore with thousands upon thousands of readers. That's why you did not just write a blog entry from your confortable home or work (which you have - of course - lost) but out of a prison cell for a blog that has of course been shut down long ago because it was so extremly influentual. That's why we evil liberals have let you do your cartoons for various months now with our raging comments of shame on it. That's why Ken does not delete stuff to keep somebody from seeing it. That's why televangelist are banned into the night and don't have their rightfully place in the prime time of every major network. That's why FOX News was shut down forcefully. and of course does not make millions with spreading a conservative propaganda news. That's why the evil social networking sites - such as the marriage destroying facebook - have driven the possibility of communication back ten years. That's why we all keep a burning grudge inside of us because the light of these blatantly brilliant insights gives our worldview - which has been supported by corrupted science - a wedgie all day long. That's why all these things have actually happend. Yes you are right. I'm thankfull for such insights, as they surely are my way to find a truly logical and reasonable ideology.. I confess, we are evil heretics. --UHMharassme 15:34, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I am completely bemused by the irony. Karajerk bemoans that liberals are trying to prevent people from reading Conservapedia yet at the same time they are creating enormous range blocks to prevent people from reading Conservapedia. Is he saying that Andy Schlafly is a liberal?  Lily Inspirate me. 16:13, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Playing Devil's Advocat for a second: No. Schlafly is keeping people from getting access to something he wiches to be spread, not something he doesn't like. That point we can make with banhammering people. --UHMharassme 16:27, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

[edit] sup?

Okay, so the trusworthies are being DDOSed, fine. But why does this here web shite keep disappearing intermittently? Mountain Blue 19:33, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Maybe because it causes everyone to lean on the captures instead of actually going to CP? Or since people can't get on CP, they just lurk here? Usually it happens when someone important mentions "Poe's Law", an article on a wiki starting with "R" that has top placement in a certain search engine ending in "E".
