We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)
Please help by posting all issues here.
The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Dahmer, I’m sure that you would know better than I.
I am secure in my utter deplorableness, secure in my sadism, secure in my xenophobia, homophobia, heterophobia, and exceptionalism.
But about Dog Boy, like a BB shot bull, he bellows, and roars and snots as he struggles against the corral...
Thanks for the read and the reminder of Marilyn Vos Savant. The need for the Electoral College today is demonstrated to be quite the same as at its founding, slow vote counts, untrustworthy ballot counting administration, and poor post (as in ‘mail’) performance.

From Solus Ipse, Pig Greek. Dog Boy spoke Ancient Greek.
Apropos, RBG‘s demise caused me to connect Xanthippe, a name that didn’t mean much to me, to Socrates as his wife termagant. There is a woodcut of Xanthippe dumping a chamberpot on Socrates’ head. So, RGB, Xanthippe termagant to the Court.
Obummer was a lame duck. Trump is not yet a lame duck. McConnell has promised a prompt vote. The riotous party has threatened to “burn the ... place down!“.
May RGB rest in peace, Xanthippe termagant to the Court.
84 of (roughly) 170 currently sovereign states use the goose step. George Orwell commented in 1941 that the goose step was used only in countries where the population was too scared to laugh at their military.
Interestingly the British Army’s exaggerated arm swing performs the same function as...
My lifetime supply of ammunition is twenty years old. I am amused by the inflation of costs, particularly of FEDERAL .40 EFMJ. Should my heir choose to liquidate it will be even wealthier.
I wonder what was the purpose of Ipse subsequent comment on Caput? Was Caputo in error, hyperbolic...
In re “the ... multiplicity of laws.”. Featured in Alexandr Solzhenitsyn The Gulag Archipelago and George Orwell’s Nineteen eighty-Four published years earlier.
The Bolsheviks subjective application of justice was featured in ‘Gulag’ just as it is in Portland.
