Hey let's do a poll!

This is now continued at Debate:Things we may or may not believe in.

Andy Can Haz AIDS?

I am reading a book at the moment about the rise of the Christian Right and how they embeded with the NeoCons. I found a Phyllis Schlafly quote that read "I would rather my children became infected with an STD than know there were such things as condoms". Perhaps Andys insanity is a symptom of an aggressive case of Syphilis? Ace McWickedcast ye the first stone 17:26, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

Or in this case, syphyllis? Wait, was that funny? I can't even tell anymore. Bjones 17:32, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
HAHA yup thats funny. But, seriously, what a harsh quote from Ma Schlafly. Ace McWickedcast ye the first stone 17:34, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
I just searched for the quote but couldn't find it - where was it from? --SpinyNorman 17:53, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
From a book I am reading called "Fall of the House of Bush". I'll check it out again when I get home as it is footnoted. Ace McWickedcast ye the first stone 17:57, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
I don't have it, so I'm pretty sure he doesn't.. ;) Kettle Kin (Version 2.0) 18:26, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
Oh ho! Sexual innuendo! Someone is getting a wee bit lippy here. And, by the way, NaThang, you were blocked for your reference on your talk page to a certain impure fluid, sometimes known as "the devil's toothpaste".
But seriously, dude, don't listen to the grandma-in-law. Wear a mini-flak-jacket on your l'il soldier. DickTurpis 18:32, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
I made a reference? Since when? just put a little star next to the exact comment
No thanks. I'm abstaining from all forms of sex. Kettle Kin (Version 2.0) 18:38, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
|Abs| User's absolute choice is to abstain from sex of any kind until marriage.
Ahem, yes we know:
Poor, poor fuzzykettle. --JeevesMkII 18:45, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
I assume that this only applies to conscious activities with another party? As a young man, unconscious sexual events tend to happen with sometimes embarassing frequency unless of course one takes "preventative measures". Sorry if that is what my wife desribes as TMI (too much information). Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 04:21, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
How evil can one be?!? Do you want our friend to become blind? Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 05:10, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
You know those hairy palms make for a soft touch....Ace McWickedcast ye the first stone 05:12, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Aren't we given to understand the Schlafly family are all filthy papists? It's pretty much just repeating what their church believes. On the other paw it does make one grateful for abstinence education, you'd hate to think the world was littered with little Schlafly by-blows. --JeevesMkII 18:22, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
The phrase "all forms of sex" always worries me, because I keep thinking "how many forms are there?" and "am I missing out?" --PsyGremlinWhut? 02:43, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
27, at last count, but I might be missing out, too... ħumanUser talk:Human 02:51, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

The Phyllis Schlafly quote I mentioned above comes from page 249 of this book. Just for clarification. I dont have the said book however, so cant tell you where the author got it to start with. Ace McWickedcast ye the first stone 04:12, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

I'm speculating here, but maybe Phyllis also comprehensively deals with the "how many forms of sex are there" question elsewhere in her book? Chapter 69 maybe. Matt 06:52, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
I think the question of how many forms of sex are there depends on what you consider to be sex..... And whether or not different sexual moves are considered a new form or a variation on an old one.... SirChuckBHITWIN FOR PRESIDENT! 11:30, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Well, sex for Phyllis is surely "for the process of making children, in the missionary position only, and with no pleasure for the woman". Next up, genetically engineering away the orgasm. ArmondikoVpathetic 13:00, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Oh yes, and mandatory clitoridectomy and infibulation for all little girls. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 13:07, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Oooh, oo!! And government subsidies for (non-kinky) chastity belts!! ArmondikoVpathetic 13:12, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Two things, first to our own little Kettle.... Where you live dog? I'll send you some girls and you'll forget all about this abstinonsense. Second, I don't know why I thought of this, but anyone else remember when the first "test tube" babies were being successfully implanted and the religious right started screaming about thow this was an abomination against god's will. There was also talk about how this would be the end of heterosexual relationships because men wouldn't be needed anymore etc etc... I really need to find some of those articles and quotes and such. SirChuckBHITWIN FOR PRESIDENT! 13:14, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Our little Kettle has a girl already. We shouldn't try to come between them (anyone who can remotely imagine putting up with Andy as a father-in-law is a saint). If they want to stop at "heavy petting" then there's no reason they should feel obligated to do more. But if you should change your mind, Fuzzy, (or your fuzzy mind) do remember that birth control is your friend. DickTurpis 13:24, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
You can send your girls to me, Sir. Ask Karajou for my (IP) address and location. Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 13:26, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Dick Dick Dick, anyone who throw away their good youth on pointless monogamy(sp?) just needs a little nudging... That's all I'm saying, don't buy the first car you see, you gotta test drive baby, test drive. As for Editor at Cp, I would, but everyone on CP is now either Ames or Ace so they're probably take some time to get to you. SirChuckBHITWIN FOR PRESIDENT! 13:49, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

Conservative and common sense?

Did Andy tell Conservative to get rid of some of his ranting on the front page?--BoredCPer 21:09, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

Well, CP's credibility just jumped up a bit by removing the Hitler pic from the main page. The evolution article still has two Hitler pics and one Stalin pic. CorryYou can always tell a Milford man. 21:16, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
That is because, as always, his "Gentleman at the other site crap" is vain boasting, he was talking shit about the polite discussions. Once again he ends up pwning himself. \approx\pi Toxic mowse.gifMowse 21:23, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
And no Conservative I am not going to watch stupid video. How about for the first time in your life you construct an argument or make a point without relying on someone else's words. \approx\pi Toxic mowse.gifMowse 21:25, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
It's a 1944 newsreel of MacArthur renewing a promise to liberate the Philippines from the Japanese. Didn't quite see the connection. --AKjeldsenCum dissensie 07:37, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Except that he had to use somebody else's words to say "I shall return." Yawn. The man is a tool. --PsyGremlinWhut? 09:19, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

Now where did that go?

I think we should be told. Mick McT 03:21, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

So, has Bohdan deleted all those debates, essays and talk page discussions that don't lead directly to the improvement of CP? Those made by Andy are specially useless. NightFlarei haz a talk page. 07:12, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
More significantly, the whole discussion about FBI involvement in rounding up CP vandals hasn't been deleted. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 10:28, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

So long, normal named people

Some people seem to be on a mission to use up all the normal user names. MikeA to MikeZ - gone! BillA to BillZ - gone! Soon the only people allowed to join will be foreigners and children of pop stars.--KrissAkabusiAwoogar 07:23, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

No no, I am sure that it is just a coincidence :-D Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 07:27, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
On a more serious note, it makes it easier to remember one's own socks too. Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 07:27, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
I was wondering the same thing myself. Is no-one allowed to be called Bill or Mike any more?
Don't forget John. Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 07:32, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

They should watch out for Name Bias: by excluding Mikes and Bills in favour of Peaches and Paris, they could be leaving themselves open to Liberal Creep and Hollywood Values--KrissAkabusiAwoogar 08:09, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

I confess to a bunch of those, although at least one other person has picked up on the plan as well. DickTurpis 11:10, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Do we need to lay out some sort of matrix and "claim" parts of the "namespace" I claim PaulA-PaulM. tmtoulouse 11:18, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Bill, Mike, some else I forgot :-D Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 11:45, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Bill and Mike aren't useful unless you get William, Will, and Michael as well. I think Michael and Mike are mostly covered. Not sure about the Bills. A good number of Pauls are gone too (that's easier as there is no obvious nickname part from "Pauly" which I imagine some Pauls might balk at being told they had to use). In many cases I tried to go with the more common initials rather than doing it alphabetically, so there's likely to be no real pattern on untaken names. Oh, and as Andy showed us with "SamD", he can make a "Samd" in addition. Most users, it seems, cannot; they are told when trying such a thing that it is to similar to an existing name. I guess the Almighty can circumvent this. DickTurpis 12:54, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, I remember WIGOing that, but it just got negative votes. I'm obviously the only one here with a sophisticated sense of humor *prrt* oops, excuse me, we can edit that out can't we? NoEtc 16:46, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
You are right about William et co. But then, for me it's enough that people get frustrated at all these rules-not rules and abandon the idea. Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 13:13, 24 September 2008 (EDT)


I'm sure Jinksie will claim that the Turkish poster should be banned for being turkish. Besides, clearly the edits in turkish are liberal, and the guy doesn't believe in school prayer -- and hell, he's not even an american, since americans don't "speeky the spanishis".--Sun mowse.pngEn attendant Godot"«Lo-lee-ta: the tip of the tongue taking a trip of three steps down the palate to tap, at three, on the teeth. Lo. Lee. Ta. V.Nabokov» 11:15, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

I think there's also a delicious irony that their English grammar bits and bobs are being tidied up by a Japanese girl. Then again, slagging off Obama, Lenski, Dawkins et al is clearly more important to your average homskollar than learning to talk proper. How much grammar does one of Andy's history students need to say "You want fries with that?" anyway. --PsyGremlinWhut? 12:35, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
I am pretty sure Jessica teaches English and that English is her first language, so I'm not sure I see the irony there. The irony would be if someone who spoke English as their second language was tidying up their grammar articles. And I'm not even sure if that would be ironic. Anyway, there is also a strong possibility that SyedO is not from Turkey. Just sayin.... Bjones 12:55, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
At least "officially", she is..."Jessica, 25, a Christian Japanese, although I have lived outside the country now for 10 years, as my father was transferred abroad" (from her userpage). Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 13:10, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
"Jessica, 25, a Christian Japanese, ...": I believe the noun form of "Japanese" is "Japanesie". Ought someone to point it out to her? --Marty 00:36, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
Wouldn't she be a "Japanesa"? ħumanUser talk:Human 00:44, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

New term

Do you believe in some god? But do you also believe in evolution? PJR has a new term for you. Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 12:11, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

That pretty much sums up CP for me. Bjones 12:24, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
How can he go from bumping heads with Andy to spewing out something that could have straight from Brother Leader (or Bugler parodist!) himself? Between this and his support of Hitler (well, you know what I mean) he's basically thrown away any cred he might have had over there and leapt out of the closet as a prancing, boa-waving goon(ok, without the prancing and boa-waving) --PsyGremlinWhut? 12:30, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
You understand he didn't make the term up, right? I've heard "useful idiot" used to describe both Zell Miller and Joe Leiberman after each spoke at the Republican National Convention. I mean, don't like PJR all you want, free world and all that, but it's hardly a Liberal ______-caliber term. Aziraphale 13:21, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Perfectly right. But at least I don't like its use in that context by PJR. Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 13:24, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
According to that nice Mr Wikipedia, "Useful idiot" was first attributed to Lenin, to describe communist sympathisers in non-communist countries. Its first use in the west was in 1948, in a NY Times article on Italian politics. Totnesmartin 14:14, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
As I said, you're free not to like him, and as a corollary you're free not to like his use of the term. I just wanted to clarify that he wasn't pulling an Andy-ism of making a term up just to spite those he opposes. Aziraphale 14:46, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
It's not about liking him. But calling "useful idiots" those Christians who accept evolution - well, THAT I don't like. Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 17:15, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Maybe after the dustup with Karadiva, Andy gave him a quota to live up to. He's gotta post so much batshit insane before he's allowed to do anything that makes sense. --Kels 17:59, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

(unindent)Yes, Editor_at_CP, thus my corollary. And Kels, I don't see what's so batshit insane about it. Even if his belief in creationism is insane, starting from there and then seeing the application of "useful idiot" to pro-evolution Christians makes perfect sense. Guess he'll have to make quota elsewhere. Aziraphale 18:44, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

His basic definition is correct, and could be expanded to people who work for any leaders or cause that doesn't actually give a shit about them. 'Nother note I almost made there, bu the ghosts of Henry's Shabby Butlers whispered a warning over my shoulder... PJR, did you just call all Roman Catholics "idiots" (along with most other Christians)? ħumanUser talk:Human 20:05, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

Professor Schlafly

This gave me massive giggles. I've yet to look through the others. --Purple George!YossieSpring in Fialta 14:16, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

The questions, for reference. --Purple George!YossieSpring in Fialta 14:24, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
That makes really sad... on a deep level... There is so much potential for reasoned analysis and Schlafly is heaping praise on that pile of shit. Really? You don't know how to map an area without the use of an airplane? My god.... I predict that there will be some kind of remedial DeSchlaflyization classes offered at the college level soon. SirChuckBHITWIN FOR PRESIDENT! 14:46, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
I feel really sorry for the kid. And notice how Schlafly is incapable of giving a score lower than 90%, no matter how poor the answers (even when they got things wrong, as with answer 2 in my example)? I looked through all the other tests from "American History Homework One Answers" and only one kid got lower than 90, and the only reason for that was that they hadn't completed most of the questions. People PAY him to teach? --Purple George!YossieSpring in Fialta 14:57, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
As a teacher, I'm sure SirChuck is pulling his hair out reading a) the answers and b) Andy's marking. It's drivel and it gets 98%. For what? There's barely a markable fact in that whole thing. The George Washington answer, whilst priceless, doesn't quote a single fact except he was the first president and it gets full marks? Surely the parents must raise an eyebrow when they see this sort of thing? --PsyGremlinWhut? 15:05, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
I kinda want to WIGO this, but then I'd worry it'd seem like we're just mocking the kid, not Schlafly's teaching methods. She/he's innocent here, despite the undeniable brilliance that is the George Washington answer. --Purple George!YossieSpring in Fialta 15:11, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
As for the parents...well, assuming they're of the same mind set as Herr Doktor Schlafly, I suspect they wouldn't exactly be nonplussed. --Purple George!YossieSpring in Fialta 15:14, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
I suspect they're thinking that junior got a 98 on a test of history "free from liberal bias", so Andy must be doing a great job of imparting the "right" kind of knowledge to them. Meanwhile, Andy's cashing their checks after a hard week of academic rigor, like calling two sentences of nonsense about the Salem Witch Trials a "Good analysis", and reluctantly deducting a single point from a history answer that was lacking in any reference to umm, history. Once again, we see why Andy bears so much hostility towards those who successfully do the things he only pretends at. --SpinyNorman 21:50, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

I just had a realisation that annoyed me. Assfly asks questions of opinion and then grades on whether he agrees with the answer. As far as I can tell, the code is good = This answer matches my idiotic opinion, OK = I'm 95% certain I know your opinion on class prayer, you filthy liberal, Superb = I totally agree, plus you kissed up to God or some (other?) conservative figure who I approve of. --JeevesMkII 15:45, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

You would be correct in assuming my head has a few hundred hairs less. My father was a history major, if he read this crap, he'd probably vomit. I mean, George Washington was a great general? by whose standards? He was AWFUL. He got his men lost all the time, he regularly ignored basic standards of the time, and he got CAPTURED by the British in the French and Indian wars. As for being a great president, while accepting that he had a very difficult and unwanted job, he wasn't that good. His only real lasting contribution to the country, setting aside patriotic blindness, is that he essentially gave us the two term norm that became law. Other than that, he didn't really do much (even if only because it wasn't known what to do) That assinment is lacking any real proof to back the claims. As Jeeves pointed out, Schlafly asks the kids their opinions and grades on how they did. That's excellent for a Philosophy Class, or a Theology Class (to a point) or a Gym class, but in History, they need to back things up. SirChuckBHITWIN FOR PRESIDENT! 16:18, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
The kids must think it's great to just parrot back one or two sentences of their teacher's opinion rather than having to remember facts and arguments. Some even get to see what points their classmates got before they have submitted their own work. The joke of course is that didn't Andy say he got burnout or something after marking four or five assignments a day? He should be able to mark all of this lot while drinking his cocoa. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 17:16, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
No kidding, using his grading system and attention to detail, dropout rates in America would be like .000005% SirChuckBHITWIN FOR PRESIDENT! 17:22, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
This assignment and grading process is nearly devoid of critical thought- Andy wastes these kids time and money twice by both assigning them unchallenging assignments and not putting a whole lot of thought into the grading. Maybe if he had a smaller class as opposed to the Biggest pre-college American history class in the worldTM he would have more time to actually challenge his students and help them grow intellectually. The irony about his abysmally low grading standards is how CP establishes grade inflation as a liberal-caused phenomenon. CorryYou can always tell a Milford man. 17:44, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Isn't it also a bit depressing that none of the kids rise above the steaming shit pool their parents have immersed them in and write thoughtful responses to any of the questions? You know, instead of asking the bovine rhetorical question "I wonder how they made maps in the days of yore?" actually did five minutes of googling on this subject and write a paragraph on theodolites and geometry and poles and suchlike? --JeevesMkII 18:55, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

What the hell is with their answers. When I did history in my second to last year of high school we did about six each of which had to have an mini-essay length answer to the (200-300 words). We were marked on "insight" (as Andy puts it) or as a history teacher called drawing conclusions from primary and secondary sources. Has Andy even covered some of the basics like secondary and primary sources? \approx\pi Toxic mowse.gifMowse 19:25, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

Hah. Have you read his "lectures"? His coverage of history is so pathetically shallow that any discussion of sources of any kind would be an improvement. He doesn't mention a single important invention as far as I can see, has no discussion of social affairs or changes in attitude at all and we learn nothing about the background or achievements of any of the historical figures mentioned. His lectures essentially boil down to "this happened, then this and then this" ad infinitum. (Also, did you really only do one year of history in your school career? I know you merkins don't have much of it, but that's kind of scary.) --JeevesMkII 19:33, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
High schools generally require one year of US history, but in many places you're also expected to take other history classes. Someone should see if there's an Aschafly World History course in the works.--Bayes 19:43, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
SOMEONE HASN'T BEEN DOING THEIR HOMEWORK! This has been around a lot longer and met with similar derision. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 02:14, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
I iz Aussie. We did "society and environment" which had history mixed in with geography and a little politics for three years and then in our final two years are the ones that actually count. I only did history only in the first, because in the final year you do only 5 subject and one has to English and there are 2 final year maths courses and I did both. But the history course had nothing like Andy's "this is what happened", it was all on what I though of as history theory where we learnt about primary and secondary sources and given questions like Was World War One Inevitable and other more sort of meta-level questions. \approx\pi Toxic mowse.gifMowse 19:44, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
All these other schooling systems seem weird to me. I got to do cool GCSEs when I was 16, like electronics. Thanks to that start in life, I still enjoy blowing up capacitors to this day. --JeevesMkII 19:55, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
In theory, I could have gone through college without taking any history courses at all (I don't know why you'd want to though) so I took US history I and II.... I remember thinking about how upset I was with my US History II teacher. She focused a lot on social issues, and was extremely feminist (we had a whole lecture on famous starlets of the 20's and 30's and their accomplishments in breaking the gender sterotype of the day) and my god did she hate Freud (not a good thing in my book). But on her worst day, she is still infinately better than Assfly. SirChuckBHITWIN FOR PRESIDENT! 20:12, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

"What the Colonists would have payed for the tea before taxes wouldn't probably not have been enough to pay the people who had shipped it, or pay the people who made the tea. So I think some taxes were fine, but maybe Britain just went a little over board." Um, the tea issue was the monopoly that the East India (?) Co. was granted that let them sell tea to the colonies cheaper than the colonists could with their own businesses, not a "high tax" issue... ħumanUser talk:Human 20:07, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

When I read the answer to H1, my first thought was to laugh and I'm thinking about how Miss Teen South Carolina could be one of Andy's alumni. Then I thought about how conservative A-listers like George Bush and Sarah Palin aren't exactly intellectually curious people, but that's okay because they "just know in their gut" what's right, and have the decisiveness to make critical decisions on that basis. When I look at this graded test through fresh eyes, I see the next generation of un-curious "deciders" being groomed to conform instead of think, and it scares the shit out of me. --SpinyNorman 22:03, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

As far as what the kids actually write, it is okay, god knows I wouldn't have wanted my highschool homework posted on the internet to be critiqued. The fact that Schlafly is making them do that is pretty twisted in and of itself. But the written feedback he is given is just so incredibly worthless and lazy. There is nothing there that could be used to grow or improve in writing style, analysis, or critical thinking. Schlafly is doing nothing as a teacher. 22:14, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

What the kids write would be ok if they were 10-11 years old (fifth-sixth grade). Not acceptable in the least for late high school. I think they are in this for the quick pat on the head and some tiem away from home, personally. As far as the public homework posting? Surely that is a violation of (minors') privacy in at least 27 states??? It's fucking WRONG and clueless. The only thing worse is Andy's "95-100" grading scale. They could use email for the homework perfectly easily. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:04, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
Isn't anyone else bothered by the fact that Andy is doing NOTHING about guiding them in basic English other than to say "cap British". Hello. This poster answered questions without using sentances!

Inane questions, public postings of response and grades (way to not encourage boy/girl competition!), substance-free answers (and it's not even good bullshit), absurdly poor grammar (and sometimes spelling) with no correction, and most of all, the long term damage that he's doing to the kids by providing ludicrously inflated grades along with a complete absence of any real knowledge or skill - I just can't handle it. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 00:18, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
"(and it's not even good bullshit)" - Exactly. At least "good" bullshitting teaches students a useful workplace skill! ħumanUser talk:Human 00:24, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
One thing we'll have to do is compare the scores for the boys and girls in his class. Will be interesting to see if any difference in marks is as a result of Andy's marking. --PsyGremlinWhut? 00:45, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
That's gonna be tough, when the minimum grade for "just turning up" is a 95 "very good"... ħumanUser talk:Human 00:54, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

Mike Birbiglia's Secret Public Journal...

... has a minor CP reference this week. Aziraphale 16:12, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

That was more than 20 words to read so I couldn't find it! Etc 16:58, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
Some of the words are funny, if that helps any. Aziraphale 18:40, 24 September 2008 (EDT)
The link on "Jesus fought the dinosaurs and won" was to CP. \approx\pi Toxic mowse.gifMowse 19:15, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

Heh, I just noticed that the subheading on cp:Dinosaur reads "Creationary Ρerspective". :)   I'm afraid I don't understand its significance. --Marty Hi Jinx! 00:57, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

Useful idiots

Wonderful irony from PJR here. How about those preachers that teach evolution in church when they are not even scientists! Instead of those top notch preachers that debunk evolution. Now THATS science. Ace McWickedcast ye the first stone 23:11, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

Something I have noticed

I have noticed that Andy's last action, every night for awhile now, has been to wikify something. It's like a signal that night editing is on. I was waiting for it tonight and yep, there it is. It's always random, like he hits random page until he finds something to wikify, does it, then closes editing. Something I notice because I am at work at this time and reading CP. Ace McWickedcast ye the first stone 00:01, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

Yep. If you go back far enough, sometimes his "nightcap edit" is a little spelling thing or a grammar tweak, but he always makes a minor edit before switching off the wiki and going upstairs to coo sweet nothings in Mrs. Schlafly's ear. PFoster 00:04, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
She plays the naughty public school student and he the liberal professor........I feel sick now. Ace McWickedcast ye the first stone 00:07, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
I dunno, bastid deleted a bunch of edits on talk:PNAS Response, then added a line about unsubstantiveness... I went to fix the > to a < could edit, then Andy went sleepies byes and I couldn't save it. Asshole, moron, fascist, liar, jerk, censor, narrow-minded twit. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:11, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
PS, Ace, thanks, now I feel sick too.... ħumanUser talk:Human 00:12, 25 September 2008 (EDT)

Jinx penisbone

Hi Jinx!

Wandal ♥ Jinx.
Jinx ♥ penisbone.
∴ Wandal penisbone?

--Marty 02:05, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
So since you noticed my revert of a lame attempt at vandalism, I guess you love penisbone, too. Probably several of them. Up your ass. 02:16, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
Boy, it really must've burned your penisbone-stuffed butts that I easily found and blocked one of your lame sockpuppets. 02:21, 25 September 2008 (EDT)
