Essay talk:Abby Sunderland story

Ok, I don't know how relevant this article is, but here's the thing.

Usually, I am quite zen about everything. I have become used to conservative viewpoints, I can just scroll conservapedia/fox news/free republic etc and keep my cool, mixed with a sort of boredom and elitist smugness. Half the time I don't even need to read the article since my empathetic conservative brain modelling is so good, I know what they are going to say anyway (so when I do read them, it's mostly to confirm that I was right again)

But sometimes there's some quite small, almost irrelevant things that reminds you exactly how much of a misery based, death worshipping, piece of collectivist anti-western piece of *beep* these people are, that just makes me snap and go ballistic. I mean, seriously, I didn't mind the usual anti-Dawkins blah blah on top of it, I didn't mind the usual anti-Obama whinery under it, but that did the trick. Sen (talk) 18:27, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Hi. This doesn't really belong in article-space. I'd say essay space, or on WIGO:CP talk. WèàšèìòìďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 18:37, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
I agree. This just seems like an embiggened WIGO, and the writing style is more suited to essay space. Colonel of Squirrels白山羊不山羊。商讨。 18:45, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
Sen, very good essay. ConcernedResident omg ponies!!! 19:04, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
I like it. Although I agree that the tone and style, as it is now, is not mainspace worthy. It could be CP-space worthy but essay is certainly the best place right now. But pedantry aside, good points, well made etc. etc. Do 16 year old sailors have machismo? Scratchchin.gif Scarlet A.pngd hominem 19:06, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Achievements by teens[edit]

I'm on the iPhone at the moment, and I don't want to monkey around with an essay, but could I suggest mentioning the Andy's claim that teens are responsible for far more achievements than evidence would suggest? Their stance seems to run contrary to this. ConcernedResident omg ponies!!! 19:11, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

It was Karajou who added this maritime news item. WèàšèìòìďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 19:18, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
My bad. White people and CP sysops all look the same to me. ConcernedResident omg ponies!!! 19:28, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
