North Korea wigo[edit]

Really lame. Funny how the Brit. article is called "North Korea". All the CIA link headers say "North Korea". Everyone calls it "North Korea". The only time the "official name" comes up in life is to mock it, from what I've seen. Of course, Ed could have made a section with the official name, pointing out it isn't democratic or a republic. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:45, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Actually he has majorly fucked up the article. D.P.R.K. is used right the way through the article without first stating what it means. Actually come to that they also use R.O.K. in the article without stating what it means. The whole article needs a find and replace to fix the mess. - π 06:24, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Wow, Human, you're completely wrong - each of the linked articles specifies that the official name of the county is DPRK. (c.f. the CIA article has "Country name: conventional long form: Democratic People's Republic of Korea"; Brittanica has "Official name Chosŏn Minjujuŭi In’min Konghwaguk (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea)", etc). And whether you or Ed like it or not, that does happen to be the official name of the country. And deciding to 'rename' the country because you disagree with its politics is the lame thing here, my friend. No, of course it isn't either a Republic or Democratic, but that's most certainly not the point. DogP 07:07, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Countries that call officially call themselves democratic are like encyclopedias that call themselves trustworthy. AlanE 08:13, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
I'm with DogP. I'm fine with calling NK NK throughout the article, but the full, official name should be stated in the lede. Likewise they should feel free to call the United Kingdom by that name, or China by that name, but it should always be noted that the full, official title is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, or the People's Republic of China. Obviously this doesn't apply to us seeing as we're not an encyclopedia.Dreaded Walrus 10:00, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
More specifically re AlanE's point, I agree, but noone here would propose going on as "The DPRK is a democratic republic [...]", because as I'm sure we'd all agree that it isn't. If I wrote a book called "This Book is the Greatest Book in the History of the Planet, the Universe, and all of Civilisation", but it was absolutely rubbish, in fact one of the worst books ever, and everyone just called it "This Book" for short, would they not mention the official name somewhere in the article simply because the official name doesn't accurately describe its contents? Dreaded Walrus 10:08, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Quick! Someone go rename cp:Holy Roman Empire! Vulpius 10:31, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

This is actually pretty common on CP. I remember that one of the sysops didn't like the subtitle of the Al Franken book "Lies and the Lying Liars who Tell Them, a Fair and Balanced Look at the Right" So they took it out and then defended it with several reverts and argued against the full title in the page because they didn't think it was accurate.... CP is a special world where Colbert's Wikiality is taken to the extreme.
EDIT: Look at that, the Sysop who removed was none other than our good friend Ed Poor." What a creepy bastard. SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 15:29, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

As a comparison, they're quite happy to mention the official name of Myanmar in their Burma article, despite noting that the US doesn't recognize the name change. Ah yes, typical 'encyclopediac consistency'. DogP 06:54, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Talk:World History Homework Eleven - Model (contd.)[edit]

As ClementB has largely won his case with facts TK needed to wave a big stick at him, but far from appearing erudite and educated TK only comes across as bombastic and hectoring. Six years of college TK? And all you can do is plagiarise material from other web-sites and act as head-doorman for Andy's Stupid Club? Redchuck.gif Генгисevolving 08:06, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

"Collegiate discourse is invited by Mr. Schlafly, from what I have observed the past several years." Oh pahleese, Terry! AlanE 08:48, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
I still can't comprehend why Andy is incapable of admitting he's made a mistake. Is he really, really insecure, or really, really convinced of his infallibility? At least TK shows off his troll credentials by being the only sysop to leap to Andy's defence. --PsyGremlinWhut? 09:34, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
For Andy's infallibility see Il Duce while TK Rather reminds me of Biggus Dickus in Life of Brian - "Let me handle this, Pontius". Redchuck.gif Генгисevolving 10:14, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Clement argued with Andy about a couple of things:
  • whether Prussia is Germany
  • how to state the postulates of special relativity
  • who won WWI
  • what's the correct term to describe Canada in 1914
  • how the sieve of Eratosthenes looks like
Maybe I've even missed a quibble. IMO, Andy was / is wrong on all points, but only caved in twice: once explicitly, and once implicitly.
larronsicut fur in nocte 10:02, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Ah it's time for that old favorite. I think we all know what's coming next. StarFish 13:05, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
You know, I wonder if it's purely ego on Andy's part. The testiness he displays seems to have a real feeling of laziness to it. As in "I've done my lecture, and I don't want to have to put in a lot more work on it." He seems at least as annoyed that Clement wants him to do more than skim a few paragraphs at Wikipedia, as at the affront to his Maximum Quality Teachiness. --Kels 13:54, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Wait...wait...OH MY GOD HE NAILED IT!!!1 SCHLAFLY WINS!! SCHALFLY WINS!!! Neveruse513 14:10, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
EC) BEAUTIFUL. "Clement, you're a liar, and worse, a liberal liar." ToastToastand marmite 14:13, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Andy really is on top of his game at the moment. This stuff is gold.-- Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 14:20, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Uh oh...I think this is it... Neveruse513 14:24, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
I'm really a big fan of ClementB. He isn't tempted to insult Andy (and Andy is really asking for it), he doesn't resort to kiss Andy's ass, he answers every question straight on and he sticks to his path of truth without getting distracted. None of Andy's shit is clinging to him, and he's totally kicking ass. --GTac 14:33, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Call me old-fashioned, but I always thought that getting the facts right would help everyone to learn. Awwww, how cute. Z3rotalk 14:38, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
It almost feels like Assfly is trying to goad him into making a "negative personal comment" so TK can ban him. Neveruse513 14:39, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
The funniest part here is how transparent Andy's attempts to push Clement are. Seriously, it doesn't take much to see through them, which I assume Clement does, and thus dismisses their emotional content entirely. His calm responses, despite digs at civility and amazement that Andy's not interested in having accurate lectures, really highlight what an awful man Andy is, and what a horrible teacher. I doubt there's a single person of any political stripe, who'd look at that exchange and not see Andy as the clear loser. --Kels 14:42, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

(undent) Have it screencapped to Andy's last reply. Will upload now, before TK salts the earth, so we add it to the Andy article. --PsyGremlinWhut? 14:44, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

"You do persist in your childish snide remarks in nearly every posting..." Okay, which one of you is writing Andy's posts for him? This is parody GOLD! --Kels 14:46, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

(EC) "You do persist in your childish snide remarks in nearly every posting; you might try pursuing an acting career in sarcastic comedy, though I doubt you'll be very successful at it." Oh my god...how...can...he...not...see...teh...irony. Neveruse513 14:47, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
It's like he got it straight from the assquote generator. Z3rotalk 14:48, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
If he makes fun of Clement's grammar here, I'm going to print it out, sneak off to the bathroom and masturbate. Neveruse513 14:50, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Zing!-- Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 15:03, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, guess you need to be careful of papercuts! --GTac 15:04, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Thing is, if Andy TK banhammers Clement, who's Andy going to have left to talk to? --Kels 15:08, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
I need a cigarette and a band aid. Neveruse513 15:10, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
You mean a nicotine patch? --GTac 15:19, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

I kind of appreciate that Clement is not going out now, as bad as Assfly wants him to. But unless Clement plays his cards just right (which I think he could do) you can be sure that the next time Clement pops his head up, it's going to be 90/10 or some perceived "negative personal comment". Neveruse513 15:48, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

It's awesome how ClementB refuses to get baited. Andy got so desparate, he pretty much begs ClementB to leave on his own. --GTac 16:14, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
And apparantly, acknowledging charecter traits is an insult. So I guess no more calling people diry liberals? Z3rotalk 17:35, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Quick question? Has anybody from here from New Jersey considered e-mailing the NJ State Education Board with with a politely worded e-mail outlining their concerns about Schlafly's fitness to teach, and using the links to all the Talk Pages for all the World History Lectures as evidence?--199.20.64.195 16:33, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Schlafly signed a document saying his instruction was "secular, neutral and non-ideological". I don't think we need to worry too much...but maybe we're all watching a bank get robbed while assuming someone else called the police. Neveruse513 16:47, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
I should think links to the actual lectures would do it, perhaps a comment about the "talk" tab, but let the lectures he's so proud of fall on their own. --Kels 16:37, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Hang on a mo'. What about all those other declarations?
"Provider assures all services are provided outside of the regular school day"
"Provider ensures the confidentiality of students' needs and progress, and shares the information only with parents/guardians and appropriate school personnel"
Does Andy only homeskule in the evenings and at weekends? And although we may not know the actual family names of the pupils I'm sure they are known locally. Redchuck.gif Генгисevolving 17:22, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, I'ld send an e-mail myself, but I don't think NJ State Education would lend much credence to an e-mail form someone living in South Wales (unless maybe I sent in Welsh).--199.20.64.195 18:00, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Don't think this has been mentioned yet, but Ed does the old two-face trick: Nice Ed promotes learning while bad Ed goes to Clement's talk page to deliver a final warning for the insult "you seem to be quite opinionated". Bonus for this sentence: "Help us do research, or be elsewhere." --Sid 17:39, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Clement's "opinionated" vs Assfly's "puerile"...hmm. They know they're doing it...the question is "How?" Neveruse513 17:45, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
The best part is that you know Creepy Ed had to search for something to warn him about. Neveruse513 17:47, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
And how he had to skip past endless accusations and taunts by Andy and Co. to find that one thing. --Sid 17:53, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Gawd, that series of edits is comedy gold, and a tragedy, a travesty, of "teaching". Schlafly can't even do time zone math - we all screw it up from time to time, but he's using to make a snide accusation. ħumanUser talk:Human 20:28, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
The whole thing is fucking unbelievable! What a shit tossing scumbag Andy is. A total fuckface with cunt for brains and scumbag attitude. If I saw him in the street I would cross the road to smack in the chops. Ace McWickedThe Liquid Room 20:36, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Why haven't you provided the details I didn't ask for... liberal? This is rapidly becoming one of my favourite pages on CP, shortly after Socialist Kenyan Mullah B. Hussein Obama. I can picture Andy screaming his lungs out at his monitor as Clement quietly and calmly kerpwns him in every way possible. Solution? Deny his arguments wholesale! Accuse everything he says of being a fabrication! I only wish it would last longer - I'll be very surprised if the Bishop lasts until Friday. Viscount 20:56, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Talking of Bishops and pwns; any one agree that Andy is the sort that somehow accidentally on purpose sends the chessboard and its pieces flying as soon as he realises he's going to lose? (Oh, sorry about that. Just when I had you on the ropes, too. We'll call it a draw, shall we? Godspeed..) AlanE 21:13, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Creepy Ed ain't gonna like this...but what's he going to do? And on what grounds? Neveruse513 21:15, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Isn't that obvious? He'll ask for a cp:writing plan... larronsicut fur in nocte 21:17, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Actually Alan, Andy reminds me of the Black Knight from Monty Python.... Using your Chess analagy, he seems like the type who, when his king is cornered by the opponents queen, bishop, knight, rook and two pawns, will look up and say "All right, we'll call it a draw." SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 21:23, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
The problem with the Black Knight analogy would be that TK would come up with an RPG about half way through the, um, dismemberment. (Andy's idea of history would just about have swords and rocket propelled grenades in the same era.)AlanE 21:46, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
All for the sake of proving that they didn't need gun control in the Middle Ages! Junggai 21:52, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
But they did have "gun" control! Ever see a serf with a longbow? AlanE 22:04, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
I guess if Leonardo di Caprio could carry around a gun which he called a "sword" in "Romeo + Juliet" (See Hollywood values), Andy can say what he wants about how there was no gun control, only religious piety, in the Middle Ages. Whatever liberal historians say, this was not really the Dark Ages, after all. Junggai 22:53, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Hollywood was always ahead of its time. Kevin Costner was blowing things up in Nottingham at least 100 years before gunpowder arrived in England; Hugh Jackman came through a timewarp caused by the Brooklyn Bridge (1879) as an expert on La Boheme (1896); and so on. And I love the religious piety (tautology of the day, perhaps? :-)) of those enlightened times - I see someone's "favorite battle" above is "Beziers"... what was the quote? "Kill them all; God will know his own". Andy's right about the joys of serfdom though. Serfing's great.AlanE 23:45, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

So!! Terry's come in with the RPG and knocked the board over. What a horrible little bit of slime he is! AlanE 01:18, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

TK's attempt at winning the argument through intellectual discourse is a massive fail. Really, 6 years of debating at college and the best he can do is randomly block for "being a troublemaker"? This just proves how (I'd like to say "morally bankrupt" but I believe JPatti has a monopoly on that) mind-numbingly dumb and hypocritical they all are. The only ones who show any semblance of being intelligent are JessicaT and RJJensen. Redchuck.gif Генгисevolving 02:30, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
God, that's the thinnest justification for a block I've seen so far. Because he knows he has nothing to go on, Terry can only insinuate in hs little screed that ClementB's been using multiple socks. As has become the standard deceitful conservative debating tactic, you don't have to give any proof if you repeat an insinuation enough times. This is a new low watermark, even for TK. Junggai 07:18, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

TK appreciation society[edit]

I dunno why people hate on TK. True he's a shit I'd cross the street to avoid, and he tried it on RW, but his stated intention was to destroy CP and he's doing a fine job of it. Totnesmartin 09:45, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
Because the enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend - and he's still a nasty underhand piece of work. Silver Sloth 09:54, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
(EC)The he tried it on RW bit. This is what fuck me off most about TK is not TK himself but the way people act about him. He is funny and the best parodist in the world when it is CP but when he come around and does it here everyone is outraged. Everyone should be outraged at his behaviour on CP too, it smacks of hypocrisy. He is a troll of the highest order. I don't even know if he is intentionally destroying CP or whether it is just his nature to be a dick, but I for one would like to hear people stop complimenting him. You wouldn't like him shitting in our lounge room, why are you happy he is shitting in Andy's? - π 09:56, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
He is indeed shitting in Andy's room, but he's doing it in full view of Andy, with his total consent. I take my hat off to him. EddyP 10:09, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
careful, he'd shit in that too. Totnesmartin 10:14, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
I think the guy is a fuck-knuckle. Ace McWickedThe Liquid Room 10:20, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
He's not only obnoxious in his behavior at CP, he's an ass in his emails. So, yes, I can't stand him. I can't believe his stated motivations, so I judge him by his current deeds.
And no, I don't think that the aim destroy CP justifies all means: you have to be funny at least --larronsicut fur in nocte 10:29, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
Exactly, he is as thoroughly repulsive in his private e-mails as he is on CP. The man has no redeeming qualities (except that one day he'll be tree fertilizer). He treats everybody, even Andy and the other sysops, with equal contempt. Which in turn speaks volumes about Andy, who values him so highly. --PsyGremlinWhut? 10:44, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
I doubt anything would grow where TK is buried. His grave will probably be marked by all the dead grass on top of it. - π 10:48, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
TK would have himself cremated just so some tree would be denied that fertilizer. And bonus, the smoke would harm the environment too. --Kels 13:14, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

I hope Clement drops by. Neveruse513 12:59, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

I hope he doesn't, in a way, otherwise it'll just allow Andy and TK to say, "See! See!" - nevermind the fact that their actions drove from from there to here. --PsyGremlinWhut? 13:18, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
Well, teh TeaKay blocked his e-mail, so we can't shout out. (of course, he might be here already, behind the curtains) ToastToastand marmite 13:22, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

SES[edit]

Doesn't Andy realise that the eleven-model-talk is going to blow his application out of the water if anyone reads it? Or maybe he does & he wants to feed his martyr syndrome. ToastToastand marmite 13:28, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

What? What are you talking about? The debate he won? Neveruse513 13:43, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Morally Bankrupt[edit]

So Morally Bankrupt = Atheism. Hm. Suppose I was to substitute any of the following words as a single word definition for "morally bankrupt": white, black, gay, Christian, Jew, Muslim, Asian, European, Buddhist, Sikh, Protestant, American, conservative, liberal, moderate, Republican, Democrat, Independent, etc. etc. Would this be OK? They sure love their labels, don't they? Jimaginator 14:12, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Pfft; no, it wouldn't be okay, because all of those groups are not morally bankrupt (except maybe Muslims) </CP Logic>. Z3rotalk 14:28, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
When are they going to realize that anyone can be a member of any group and behave badly? And anyone can be a member of any group and behave well? This seems so simple to understand. *sigh* Jimaginator 14:38, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
I think their logic goes something like this: Christianity says to act good, therefore, if you act bad, you are not acting like a christian, as christians act good (or something like that), therefore, the flaw is yours, not your faiths. Since atheists are not told to be good, those who are good act against their evil impulses, therefore a bad atheist is acting like a christian (or something like that). Wow, typing that made my head hurt. Z3rotalk 14:59, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
That sounds plausible. (I almost wrote reasonable, but reason don't enter into it) It is such a fractured, and downright dangerous way to look at things. Jimaginator 15:14, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Fucking perfect. Neveruse513 16:54, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Obama - Notre Dame[edit]

There is precedent for refusing to give a leader an Honorary Degree. The dearly beloved Maggie was counted out at Oxford despite it being her alma mater. Oxford, however, were concerned about policy and money, not ethics. ToastToastand marmite 15:26, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Other than being too long-winded for Assflea's taste, this student has some well thought-out answers despite a few minor inaccuracies. Remember, she supposedly got her information from Professor Andy. Jorge 15:52, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, it's not that inaccurate. Okay, the war really started in 1939 but it's true that it never really began in earnest until 1940. Q3 looks interesting. My arsey objective side would say "the same reason that Churchill and his supporters killed so many"... it's called WAR. Scarlet A.pngtheist 16:09, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
(EC) The only two things I really have are A, the strange timeline she uses suggesting that Russia went through two world wars and everything else before turning Communist (and Russia didn't really get beat by Japan per se, but no matter) and she leaves out that a huge part of cracking Enigma was the outright laziness of the German who didn't follow protocol in changing the master codes or accepting that the Allies could crack it.... But overall, an excellent paper from a high school student using Andy's lectures as a starting point, and a hELL of a lot better than most of the other efforts we've seen.

Miss CA[edit]

That's a failed WIGO ... it was more accurately a "whiny gay" who made a big deal out of her opinion. Sure she sounded ignorant, but she was asked her opinion and gave it. Old news. Jrssr5 19:10, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

She told a guy to his face that she believes that "in [her] country...marriage should be between a man and a woman". What a fucking bigot. Can bigotry disqualify you from being Miss America? If she said her hobbies were killing puppies would that cost her? I hope so. I'm so glad this bitch lost. Neveruse513 19:16, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Ooh. I love this argument. Remember, beauty paegent contestants aren't exactly our best and brightest (Remember this chick?). If Ms. CA had thrown in the civil-union talking point along with her answer everyone would have been fine. Marriage is a religious institution and calling people 'bigots' who believe such thing is, in fact, bigotry in in its own right. :p Jorge 20:04, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Oh, she is not as dumb as all that; she figured out how to turn losing a pageant to her advantage by grandstanding. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 20:12, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Marriage is not a religious institution, it's a social institution that has been co-opted by religion. The fact that every religion claims control of marriage ought to be a hint. I tend to be lumped in with the libertarians on this front, I don't care who gets married. If heterosexual life buddies want to get married for whatever financial reason floats their boat, I say let 'em. Hell, if every single moonie wants to marry every mormon in want giant web of sexual exploitation, go right ahead. Letting religion get away with maintaining their stranglehold on the institution is just a recipe for retarding any sort of social progress. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:24, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
I would argue that marriage is as much a religous as a social institution, mainly because early societies were largely ruled by their churches, making the religious defacto social. Z3rotalk 20:30, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Actually, marriage used to be very much a private thing in many places; many churches presently treat it as a civil matter, and a marriage ceremony did not require a priest in the Catholic church until the Council of Trent. Under Scots law one could make a marriage-by-consent until 1940, apparently. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 20:41, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
To clarify, I believe government should have no place in defining marriage and that gay couples should have the same legal protections as straight couples. Jorge 20:45, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
To clarify, I believe religion should have no place in exclusively defining marriage and that gay couples should have the same legal protections as straight couples. Neveruse513 21:05, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
By the way, which religion do you think owns marriage? Or do they all get to share it even if they have wildly conflicting views of what it is? Neveruse513 21:09, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
(EC)The interesting thing about this marraige debate is that it falls in the middle of the religious/government institution.... Whereas marraige is a part of almost all religions, it still need government backing (a license) to be considered valid. As such, individual religions can exclude whoever they want from their little ceremony, but the government can not and should be carrying religious water. SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 21:11, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
Neveruse513-if that is your real name, I don't believe any religion owns 'marriage', but I believe it's OK for them to think they do so long as all couples are afforded the same rights under the law. Jorge 21:33, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

(undent)Miss CA better get her act together. America's going gay on her watch! ENorman 21:41, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Isn't religion itself a social institution anyways? Or am I derailing the discussion now? And concerning marriage, personally I see it as a thing between a man and a woman. Like sex, I can't imagine someone would prefer it being same sex. But obviously not everybody is the same as me, and if they really want that who am I to object to their happiness. --GTac 22:13, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

I love when Andy tries to defend stupid positions... "Most ancient "comedies" were not really "humor" in the modern sense of the word, but were charming poetry." What a fucking moron.... Poetry was poetry, ancient comedies are plays that are not tragedy. Has Andy ever read anything from this era? Does he even know how to read? SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 21:16, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
I wanted to say something about how there may be a distinction between classic comedies and modern humor, but how would a whitty play makes sense without the concept of humor. I was going to comment on what the hell Andy's definition of humor was. I could mark upon the mystery of what the fuck Christianity ever contributed on humor... But what does it matter, it's just Andy being a retarded dick again, and I'll just be repeating what everybody already knows and has said before -_- GTac 00:13, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Literature, you're doing it wrong. All you need to know about how awful this page is? "Examples from popular literature: Star Wars" Terry's definitely talking about the movies, not the books (which, in those six parts, are just novelizations of the movies, not literature). --Irrational Atheist 19:39, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Oh god that is just a terrible article. If I didn't already know the types, this wouldn't help me at all. A crisis is defined as a situation calling for "judgment"? An anti-hero serves the cause of evil? A villain is one dimensional and is ONLY stopped by death, total defeat or unconditional surrender? An anti-villain is a character who single mindedly follows good instead of evil? An anti-villain follows the path of good, so he is a hero who's only stopped by death, defeat or surrender? Wait, but... what? --GTac 22:46, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Wait... Sidious was a villain in all six movies... Sidious wasn't even mentioned in the first... so how could he even be the villain? If you are going to classify Star Wars as literature, should't you at least see it first? User:Theemperor/Sig/Sig 00:05, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

"A literary villain is any character who never changes his mind or his goals or his outlook [...], even if unless an overwhelming force, physical or psychological, compels him so to act. A villain approaches life, and his goals, with single-minded determination, and cares nothing of what anyone, ally or adversary or bystander, might think of his actions." Looks like a perfect description of Andy to me.. Cantabrigian 09:35, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
So a villain must be present in any well written story. I've just finished Jane Austen's 'Persuasion' (again) and, whilst there are characters who are less than perfect I'm not sure I could spot the villain. Charles Elliott, perhaps? And he's not exactly defeated, it's just that Anne sees through him. Maybe Austen isn't great literature. Silver Sloth 10:06, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

I must say, what with this kind of thing, the rout in November, the defection of Specter (what a brilliant name, btw), and the frothing-at-the-mouth ravings of Limbaugh et al, I'm delighted to see that the Republicans are spiraling down the hole of narrowing extreme-right support. The way they're going about things, it looks very similar to the downward spiral the UK Conservative Party suffered after they NOTBK'd Thatcher. Since then (12 years ago now), they've never been electable, and have flailed about wildly, shifting to the extreme right, then back a bit, then more the centre, than back again. So we have great hopes the same will happen to Republicans. And with any luck, that means many, many years without Republicans being in power. Hurray for right-wing nutjobs!

They aren't going to launch into full hate on their website. They start with a few "things in the old times were better" stuff. You are expected to go "yeah they were" then you get their reading list, and the book will start with the "things in the old times were better" stuff and then over the course of 300 pages build up to the "everything is the fault of foreigners" and then the literature they give you gets more and more extreme. That is how these groups operate, they take in the disaffected and disgruntled and slowly feed them more and more reactionary material until they are full-blown racists running around beating shop keepers. - π 01:52, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

It can be that insidious. Amin7b5 02:01, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Said user should reconsider her improper fixation on these obscure triviliaties, open her mind, and start putting more truth into her articles. Junggai 08:01, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

RJJensen and the Bishop[edit]

Another one to be relieved by Clement's absence will be RJJensen. It's interesting how silent the historian in residence is on this subject. On ClementB's talk page, there is a short exchange between RJJensen and ClementB: ClementB had obviously inserted one of Andy's insights into an article RJJensen was editing , and RJJensen didn't like it at all. He would scold ClementB for inserting information he knew to be wrong - but would he call Andy on it. No. Double standards, anyone? larronsicut fur in nocte 08:09, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Reaching a New High[edit]

At least nominally, CP has achieved to block a /8 range, now:

Number of Active Range Blocks at CP on April 30th, 2009
Range /16 /17 /18 /19 /20 /21 /22 /23 /24 /25 /26 /27 /28 /29 /30 /31 /32

#Blocks 228 15 34 57 59 10 130 15 181 3 2 3 2 7 0 0 864

These add up to 16,908,568 blocked IPs, while a /8 block would cover a mere 16,777,216 numbers (blue line).

So, it's party time over there? No, not yet. Due to liberal deceit reactionary incompetence, quite a few of the blocks which are active now cover similar ranges or are nested. In fact, at this moment only 15,147,743 individual IPs are actually blocked. So, don't open the bottles of champagne to early. Just wait a few days.

The colony/dominion/commonwealth thing is quite interesting. I always, in my clumsy broad-brush way, thought that Britain learned from losing the 13 colonies in north America and relaxed their grip on their other colonies (more self-rule, etc.) in order to avoid silly wars of independence and maintain the wealth-producing trade relationships. A broad brush, I know, but basically, it worked. ħumanUser talk:Human 20:49, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

World History Lecture Twelve and Cryptography[edit]

Okay, so Andy's lecture on World War II covers the Enigma. Which is good, in and of itself -- the Allies breaking Axis codes was certainly a key factor in winning the war, or at least shortening it.

However, there a key omission: it doesn't mention Alan Turing! Discussing WWII cryptography without mentioning Turing is like discussing the history of modern physics without mentioning Einstein!

And Andy mentions a Polish cryptologist by name in the lecture, so he's not just avoiding mentioning specific people.

Could it be that Andy doesn't mention him because Turing was gay?

I'm surprised by this. Besides this event, what did Kotomi do to get Andy's attention? Normally he just hides under a desk until the problem fixes itself. Hell, it took vandalism from Fox to earn a demotion and that's someone TK has a personal beef with, and Conservative is still around even though they hate him (Andy included, and he didn't need TK's help with that). Jessica, however, was swiftly dealt with, apparently no questions asked. Did TK's influence rise so dramatically in the last few months? FlareTalk 00:49, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

The most fitting thing Kotomi could do would be to withdraw from CP and work on ASK instead. Grima TK has Andy's ear, and is basically going to drive anyone off of CP who annoys him.

Be fair now. She might have been doing all kinds off-wiki that we don't know about.-- Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 11:58, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
Perhaps, but I'd be surprised. Her extremely hypocritical block of Falco1029 opened my eyes. I used to think that she was too nice for CP. But in the end she was happy to play along. Anyway, she can always use her ToykoRose account to defend herself if she wants. That'll give TK all he needs to permaban her. JoeDuffy 12:19, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
The Falco1029 block also got me fired up. She was too nice for CP. I badmouthed her a lot, but I did apologize. I'm just disappointed that she stayed with CP and turned a blind eye. Now she gets it. I just wish she would have left of her own accord long ago instead of having this happen. --Edgerunner76 13:22, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
Well, to be fair if you do enjoy editing the site as she seemed to do, standing up for others when they're being bullied can be hard when you know said bullies may easily lock you out AND undo whatever work you've already made. But she did affect CP for the better, treating others with respect, blocking users who deserved it and retracting and apologizing when not (such as Falco1029's case).
Maybe I'm only saying this just because she was surrounded by a bunch of goons though. FlareTalk 15:21, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
In fairness, when brave comrade ETrundel was blocked she did stand up for him and eventually managed to get him unblocked. But then The Curious Incident of the Copied Articles in the Wiki occured. So maybe she shouldn't have gotten me unblocked in the first place, I doubt it helped her cause :S. Now I feel guilty. EddyP 19:12, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
I think Jess stumbled once in a while in trying to balance adhering to the party line with being a decent person, and on the whole the balance of her actions there were for the "decent person" category, which is what caught up with her in the end. When you look at the daily actions and contributions of the remaining sysops there, it's clear that she was showing too much class to remain. --SpinyNorman 20:57, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Definitions of scientist?[edit]

Ripped Extract from CP:

2. Pick your two favorite scientists or mathematicians from the 1800s and explain what you like about them.


I greatly admire Thomas Edison for overcoming his and other people’s doubts and going after his dreams. What amazed me the most about him was that even though he was deaf, he invented many machines that only a person could enjoy with their ears. Many people do not want other people to enjoy something that they are not capable of enjoying themselves, but Thomas Edison was different. Marie Curie is greatly known for her discoveries and theories on radioactivity. She might have experienced discrimination from some of her colleges and friends because she was a woman and, at that period in time, some people believed that women were not as capable in different subjects as men. She did what she enjoyed and believed what was correct no matter what other people thought. What I found interesting was that she died by poisoning from her own lab. She was an amazingly ambitious woman who did not let anyone get in the way of her goals. (Veronika)


My favorites ... were the Wright brothers. The fact that two young men in the biking industry had the brains and determination to invent a machine that would be capable of lifting man into the skies is an inspiration to every single American. I am also impressed y the guts they had in selling their bike shop. (Cole)

As I understand it, these are the model answers for history homework. Do they even know what is defined as scientists?

(Thomas Edison definitely is NOT a Scientist, and the Wright brothers are probably classified as Engineers instead of scientists.) Thieh 23:53, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Also, does radiation sickness count as poisoning? Nitpicking, but I was always under the impression that being poisoned involved a foreign chemical being taken into the body rather than radiation being absorbed externally. And anyway, why is it "interesting" that her work killed her? The same could arguably be said about Truman Capote. Crundy 00:03, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
You need to put it in proper anti-science thought. First off, there is the "study something that kills you" being ironic, and certainly more so than a black fly in one's chardonnay. Ohh - science is bad, it can kill you type thought. At the same time this is mixed with the respect for a martyr - dying for what one believes in (science, however misguided that may be - but that only makes the martyrdom all the more impressive). And so, this aspect of her life would be interesting to some. --Shagie 00:41, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
I think you are seriously nit picking highschool students. Remember, the students are not or at least "should not be" up for grabs at wigo nor for criticism. Students are not likely to understand your rather specialized understanding of scientist vs., lay inventor, much less "engineer". I was a sub for Highschool students, when doing my grad work, and this is pretty typical of how they take in and process more complex ideas that will be refined over the next 10 years. As for radiation, WikiPedia and web md both call it "radiation poisoning" with a secondary reference to sickness, not sure why you have issues with the term. --Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot"«Her intense and pure religiousness took the form of her having equal faith in the existence of another world and in the impossibility of comprehending it in terms of earthly life. V.Nabokov» 01:00, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
None of this makes sense, though. Any good YEC knows that radioactive decay barely happened up until the day we started using it to date things, so there would have been so little radiation it would barely have done anything to Curie. Clearly you haven't been reading your Bible, it's all in there. --Kels 01:11, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

War on Language regarding World History homework model answers[edit]

Shouldn't the answers be at least edited?

Homework eleven

Verdun was struggle that basically accomplished nothing. It just took the lives of many men. The Germans were attacked Verdun, France. 220,000 soldiers died and double that number was wounded. This battle took about 10 months to finish.
—Nate

Homework five

... The Sunnis have controlled Saudi Arabia and Iraq while the Shiites control a majority of Iraq and Iran. ....
—Sandro

Homework Nine

(Q: Now that you've taken the midterm exam, how might you have prepared better? (5 words or less))

By focusing more on how the major empires correlated with one another.
—Jenna N.


Whoever put this up, look at WFG's comment above. Don't pick on the kids. Also, if these are fairly new, yes, they do edit them, they often add to them over several days. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:25, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

I put it up, because I expect Andy to edit the answers ("Model" answers are something one expects to have copying value), or at least put up edit marks on the answers so that it can be properly read. I am not picking on kids, I am simply picking on the problem of Andy being too lazy to put edit marks on the answers before releasiung them as "Model" (I don't rip them from individual answers, only from the model.) Thieh 01:48, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Still, we repeat, Please don't mock the children. Wait until Andy grades, and makes model answers, then mock him. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:03, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

God. I never cease to be horrified by just how abysmal a teacher Schlafly is. His lectures are criminally full of errors. His assignments range from nonsense, to ideological purity tests, to repetitions of his latest dipshit theories. His responses range from "Great" to "Excellent! May use as model!" and provide absolutely no feedback, except if they disagree with his pet theories, in which case they are wrong without explanation. He tests entirely the wrong sort of "knowledge", desires no development of writing, reading comprehension, analytical, or argumentative skills. And on top of all of this, he thinks he's an absolutely fantastic teacher, singlehandedly getting his students into college while keeping addiction, depression, and mental disorders at bay.

I really wish we knew who these kids' parents were, so we could send them a "wake up" letter about Andy's methods of "teaching." Undoubtedly most all of them are fucking-nuts, but there's hope that at least one would actually look at what the guy is doing. Because if this is what passes for education online, I can hardly see how inclass would be any better. He'd espouse the same insane theories, inflate grades, give no attention to lecture accuracy, and be perfectly chivalrous. PubliusTalk 07:23, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Amen to your first paragraph, in spades. As far as your second, one can only hope there is hope? PS, it's "fucknuts", not "fucking nuts". And the fucknut parents love the Jesus their kids are being taught. And the racism, the USA-centrism, etc. ħumanUser talk:Human 07:32, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Model answer of Economic homework Ripped extracted from CP

5. Suppose the government limits the supply of Toyota cars that can be imported in 2008 to a certain quota. What effect does this have on the supply curve, and on the equilibrium price? Who is helped by this import quota, and who is hurt? Be as specific as possible. Import quotas cause the supply curve to shift upward, and for the equilibrium where supply meets demand to shift to less quantity at a greater price. the consumers are hurt by import quotas, and everyone pays more for the cars and some people who wanted the car at its lower, free market price, cannot buy it at the higher price. Sellers of Toyota cars are helped because they make bigger profits per car sold, although they cannot sell as many as before.

Edited with link:

The method "with liberal bias": The consumer surplus and producer surplus occupy different regions when the quota is imposed.

The Way CP did it: The upward shifting of the supply curve implies(As supply curve is determined by cost+"normal" profit) that the total cost producing the goods (at the quantity indicated) increased.

Apparently Andy seem to be trying too hard to teach something that he is not qualify with. Thieh 09:01, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Foxtrot[edit]

If one looks up the first two, they're for services in Hessen and Köln, which is likely where ClementB edits from. Then comes the mystifying Beijing block -- it could be that ClementB was using a sock, but this is likely just more deceit, so that TK could have something to accuse Clement with on his talk page message.

By the way, I have no idea how checkuser works, but assuing that TK was telling the truth about Beijing (*crickets*), how would he even know? And if ClementB already was editing from a valid account, what would be the reason for using a foreign ISP? Can anyone who knows more about this explain if there was any possibility for it to be true, or was TK obviously just making shit up for an excuse to ban?

When I look up my work IP address it shows up as being in a completely different country a thousand miles away. The truth is that many companies outsource their IT, and security issues may require specialist content filtering or threat detection. Our payroll is handled in Poland and IT help desks are located in Kuala Lumpur, Bangalore and Wythenshaw. The truth is that all the CP sysops are IT-challenged and cannot understand how the intertubes works. It's like the old fable of the blind men trying to determine the nature of an elephant by feeling different parts of its anatomy.
So oft in theologic wars,
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
And prate about an Elephant
