I used to like Leo when he did the Screen Savers, but it turns out that when he gets to the top (his own company) he's a arrogant jerk.

The CEO of TWiT, Lisa Kentzell (she is a few of the segments sitting next to Leo), is just as bad as Leo.  I'm glad she doesn't host any of the shows. 

These people have their noses pointed way up.


Looks like Leo Laporte and Lisa Kentzell are lovers:

It looks like those two have more than a business relationship.

When she was last a candidate for president in 2007, Hillary Clinton unveiled her own health care proposal, which, like Obamacare, included beefed-up benefits and a catchy pitch: "If you have a plan you like, you keep it." Obama went on to defeat Clinton, but he adopted her tag line to help win support for his own health care plan -- making the same promise, for which he recently apologized.

Oh, and what accent is she doing there?

And was that our fearless leader that didn't know (during open lines) the meaning of the term "hydrocarbons"?

Taken out of context.  He said he'd never heard the theory that aliens are using hydrocarbons to fly around in their space ships.

One more point I thought it would be of interest to mention.. Wells told Punnett he hoped he'd come back and do the New Years show. Would Wells really have the right to invite him back to do that show without Ship Captain's Noory's approval? Perhaps Wells knows by then he will be pushing Snores overboard..

Ian has regularly done a New Years show, because Noornon usually takes some time off around then.

She seemed to come to enough of a hesitation or stop that any momentum she had was lost. 

Yes, I think she wanted to make sure she got that ball near the catcher.

Any guesses how long it will be until we have more information on the artbell website?

Between tomorrow and 30 years, that is my guess.

Also, my guess is, Art will primarily use the site to flog his secret pizza sauce, oh yeah, pizza punch, and all the other stuff he sold over the years.

Art loved trying to organise on air debates often with little response or little success.

I liked the caller to caller debates, they were awkward, but really raw and real.

that deer is a fawn and that dog is just trying to play.  lucky for that fawn.

   Yeah, that is all explained in the video description, but the deer doesn't know the dog just wants to play.  My real beef here is with the actions of the dog owner.

Not so much? How do you explain deaths from firearms if there's no 'interaction'? Or are these virtual deaths?

As I said before, I'm not politically correct (your pet pseudo put down)

Yeah sure hehe, what a laugh.  You have all the correct positions.  I haven't come across any of your positions that weren't politically correct.

That's certainly a point, but the Mail said it had quotes from former girlfriends.  Do you say that they make up quotes?  Or that they shade the news to Fleet Street standards?

What Yorkshire Pud really means is that the Daily Mail is not politically correct enough.   
Quote from: Yorkshire pud on May 23, 2013, 09:22:43 AM

You're a bit detached from reality, so it's difficult to see how you see 'restricting freedom' with 'avoiding a bloodbath'... I don't carry a firearm, I have more freedoms than you do. How about that!

...which is strange how you then go on to say....

'Should' carry side arms? Because you say so? So you'd control the situation?

The victim was reportedly decapitated with a meat cleaver. You should report your findings re: extremists, to the security services. As you have no idea about our immigration policy how would you know about how many extremists there are? It's worth mentioning that some of the loudest condemnations and shocked reactions has been from Muslim groups.

Arguing with politically correct is a chore, for they give fallacy upon fallacy.  Someone else can pick it up.  I'm outta here.

Jesus... The Soviet Union wasn't a country. It was the collective of separate countries under the control of a central bureaucracy based in Moscow.. Which is why the countries that went back to being self governed after the collapse of the USSR have to a lesser or greater degree antipathy towards Russia (which was the default name used by many to call the USSR)
Third party website:
QuoteThe Soviet Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) is a former country which included the modern-day Russian Federation and a number of adjacent states, including the Baltic states (Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania), Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and others.

QuoteAt the fear of sounding trite; The Chinese people identify themselves as Chinese, not Taiwanese.. You'll have to forgive them if they don't get mixed up in the minutia of political wrangling, and simply feel affection with China, and by extension, it's flag.

For the last time, Taiwan is not a country.  What you keep referring to as Taiwan is the Republic of China.  At the end of  the Chinese civil war (active fighting) the ROC leaders fled to the island province of Taiwan, where they remain today.

Taiwan/China  has caused so much political wrangling and sabre rattling over the years. Depending on who is presently in control of Taiwan. One party is anti PRC, the other pro PRC. 

So they didn't want to wave a USSR flag, maybe because they were Russian, or Ukrainian, or Lithuanian, or Estonian, or Czech, or Slovakian, or Polish... (having worked with Poles, I can assure you most don't have a great opinion of Russia, where the USSR was the hub) All member countries that were not part of the USSR after it's break up..China is China.. It has provinces within it, but it's still the same country. It isn't Taiwan. The Chinese politburo might want Taiwan, it doesn't hold that Chinese people do or in fact wish to be identified with it.
I think it says something that they didn't go around waving the Soviet flag.  They were not proud of such a prison country. 

The Chinese government on Taiwan (ROC) even say they are not an independent country.  The official position of the Republic of China (ROC) is that they are the true China, and claim all territories thereof.  If anything the ROC and the PRC have become closer in recent years.  Taiwan is not a country!!!!  Taiwan is what the western media etc have taken to call the ROC out of fear of harming the sensitivities of the Peoples Republic of China.

It's nothing to do with being politically correct. There are practical reasons. Our military don't need to advertise they're military. It's often counter productive if they do. There's always some drunk asshole who fancies his chances (usually ones who couldn't get into the military) and breaks a bottle over another's head if they think they're soldiers.  In the case yesterday, being armed wouldn't have helped anyway, because the victim was rammed by a car driving at speed..Probably driven onto the pavement a second or two before impact.

OH yes, the next argument from the politically correct, "something could possibly happen, so we shouldn't allow it."  This is the way the politically correct restrict freedom.  However, when it comes to guns the politically correct have another motive, control.

I am not sure of the state of the victim yesterday after he was hit, but going forward British soliders should carry their side arm for protection.  Apparently there are many Muslim extremists in Britian due to immigration policy.

They wave the Chinese flag because it's the Chinese flag. They don't wave the Taiwanese flag because they're not from Taiwan. Any more than an American immigrating to Australia or Canada would get all misty eyed about Barbados. A political regime doesn't define the people's love for the country from where they were born. They don't have an alternative flag of China. Sure some Americans still fly the Confederate flag, but they haven't grown up yet.
"Taiwan" is not an independent country. The alternate flag for China is the flag of The Republic of China.  You don't understand the political nuance.   [attach=1]

Back in the day I never saw Soviet immigrants waiving around the flag of the USSR.  They would have been ashamed to do so.
Quote from: Yorkshire pud on May 23, 2013, 08:36:11 AM

Some do. But not all, because it isn't needed or even wanted by the military. Accidents happen with firearms, even if the user is trained to use them.

I think it is needed after the events of today, but I'm sure the military will continue to strongly discourage it. Britian is politically correct after all.   Accidents happen with cars, even if the user is trained to use them.

America's immigration problem is Mexico.  I wouldn't want to live in that miserable country either.  This mass illegal immigration that has been going on for the last couple decades is concentrated from mainly one country, Mexico.  It just feels as though Mexico is being brought to me.  Please tell me I'm wrong, for I very well could be.

Another thing.  The United States of America has let in a large number of Chinese immigrants.  One thing that really narks (Chiefly Australian Slang.  to become annoyed) me is all the Chinese communist flags they wave around.  These Chinese immigrants could at least wave the Kuomintang's flag (the current flag of the People Republic of China on Taiwan).  Ugh, I can't stand it that they wave the "filth of Mao around".  Am I being too sensitive?
Wow, it is really too bad British soldiers don't have the option of carrying their side arm with them.
