Quote from: The Kraken on December 19, 2015, 03:07:01 PMActually John Lennon said he wrote that song because he hated how everyone was trying to analyze his music so he decided to write a song that made no sense and watch everyone try to figure out what it meant.

Quote from: The General on August 21, 2010, 05:14:22 PMGold's long-term track record is really bad. 
The average lifetime annual growth of gold is only 2.14%.
All of the money made by investing in gold has been since 2001.

This from Jeremy Siegel's book "Stocks for the Long Run".....

    One dollar invested in bonds in 1801 would yield $13,975 today.
    One dollar invested in stocks in 1801 would be worth $8.8 million today.
    One dollar invested in gold in 1801 would be worth $14 today.

Quote from: The Alcoholic on April 13, 2016, 09:19:39 AMSynthetic Mescaline (cacti makes me too nauseous) > LSD.

I mean I feel like mescaline is much more calm and interconnected and less calculating than LSD. I always feel at peace with things, the world, people around me. I also think the visuals are stunning. LSD visuals are more erratic and geometric while mescaline is more fractal and curvy.

Quote from: KnyeGuy on July 13, 2010, 06:30:55 PMDoes NASA really DO anything space related anymore? I hate to agree with anything Richard C says, but I have to concur with his position regarding their incompetence/uselessness.
Quote from: teloscaylos on July 13, 2010, 09:04:13 PMNASA was in the precess of going back to the moon, and, ultimately, build permanent settlements there (as a launching point for Mars, etc). However, now, under the Obama paradigm, we'll need to hitch a ride with the Russians in order to reach the space station. Will NASA, under the current administration, create a new "shuttle"? It looks doubtful as Obama wants to "privatize" space which will go the way of his "green shoots" I have little doubt.

The NASA budget was only 18.7 billion for an entire year, Goldman Sachs could locate that much money between the cushions of their "bailed out" sofa.  :D

Quote from: Teh PeNgu1n oF dOOm on May 05, 2016, 12:04:17 AMWhen I do scientific investigations I am always blocked by having to wait for my documents to dry.  I need to work on that, and keep my documents away from liquids.  It is so frustrating.

Here is my report:

I am agnostic, so I was surprised to see an angel flutter at my window. Then it yelled "You were wrong about Science being an extension of the divine and God evolving along with humanity! Where's Your Science Now?!?!", and then it flipped me the bird and fluttered off.

Quote from: Tarbaby on October 27, 2013, 08:14:15 AMI think people basically operate at the level of fear (of deprivation) and satiation (seek pleasure). Over this core is a thin veneer of civility, reason and logical thinking. But the majority are not capable of abstract thought, cannot exceed a 12-yr old mentality and cannot read above a 6th grade level.
  Consequently people are, en masse, vulnerable to suggestion (because we are primarily xenophobic  and prone to violence).
  So its not surprising to see case after case of conspiracy theory spawning and spreading like virii. Human nature.

Quote from: b_dubb on September 11, 2010, 05:49:19 PMi live in a college town and i hear a lot of college kids and intellectual types ridicule christians and christianity but every other faith is treated with the utmost respect and sensitivity.  double standard?  yes.  and for all the talk about tolerance and diversity they are frequently just a bunch of posers.  a lot of 'Left' politics on campuses / college towns are just fashion.  challenge that view and you're ridiculed.  amazing how two extremes become almost indistinguishable

Quote from: TaoOfLuxLisbon on September 12, 2010, 04:19:59 PMLet's face it, that has everything to do with the fact that in America, when it comes to someone pushing religion down your gullet and pointlessly interjecting it into conversations, it's naturally Christians who are doing it the most, which is why people get so irritated at them. When's the last time a Muslim or Jew tried to convert you? Maybe in other countries it's different. It's like how I hate both the Red Sox and the Yankees, but because I live in New England I hate the Sox more because I have to hear Red Sox fans say stupid shit 24/7. If I lived in NYC, I'd be the other way.
Quote from: TacoTuesday on March 26, 2016, 03:34:10 AMComparing weed to cigs is an apples to oranges situation that admittedly the scientific test I have read haven't addressed. Most cig smokers consume a pack or two a day, that is 20 to 40 cigarettes. I doubt most weed consumers don't even touch that many joints a day. When I used to smoke dope, it was usually in pipe form and still it was only a few bowls a day.  Of course there are abnormalities like the person that chain smokes a carton or and hippie that smokes a Cheech and Chong joint all day.

Thanks for making this one of the best threads on BG. A+
Thanks for the feedback, R.A. Very glad you like it.
Quote from: MV/Liberace! on November 09, 2016, 09:12:29 AMi think it's a combination of things; american policy touches every corner of the world, our superpower status renders our political battles the "heavyweight" matches to follow, our mainstream media are expertly skilled at monetizing/promoting election cycles... i'm never shocked to see the level of foreign interest in our elections.
Quote from: Taaroa on November 10, 2016, 01:55:11 AMSpeaking as one of these non Americans interested in your politics, there are probably a few other points you can make:
1) Our election cycles are very quick and the personalities which are at the head of it are less important (in fact they get replaced often enough without going to election)
2) American elections are interesting and amusing to watch because really anything seems like it can happen, and they're very accessible thanks to your media.
3) It's a bit of escapism where we can throw support behind one candidate and feel like we have a horse in the race, while at the same time we are far enough removed that - whatever the outcome - there aren't likely to be direct/immediate effects (unlike our own elections).

You might also be able to say that thanks to the all pervasive American media and culture, a lot of people lose sight of the fact that they aren't American.

Quote from: sydtron on July 23, 2014, 12:50:42 AMI dont know if this counts, but I was a caller on Arts Dark Matter program.  The open lines show. I told him about my parents haunted house and how a doorframe shook when my grandmother threw holy water unto the door. I was so nervous and slighty intoxicated. Haha. But it was nice to be apart of things and talk to THE MAN.

Quote from: swordpoint9 on October 06, 2015, 02:34:46 AMOk Having spent a 1/4 of my 47 years in the Near East . There is an underpinning of NASDP that crept into the Arab / Persian Culture . Add to it the natural enmity of Jews . Now when a Strong man arrives they must pick their Tribe in Iraq through fortune of Birth .  Thus you get the Tikriti Tribe having more weight than Religion . IE Saddam a Sunni and His second in charge was A Christian . Both From Tikrit. You must Rule Middle Eastern Countries Culturally as a very Strong man . You will be deposed if you do not internally . Look to the House of Saud for and Example still there . Like I said this is Too Long to get into Here , plus Boring !

Quote from: suttercane on July 31, 2015, 11:58:59 PMOne trick is to tell 'em stories that don't go anywhere - like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe, so, I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. Give me five bees for a quarter, you'd say.

Now where were we? Oh yeah: the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Quote from: Surmo on March 12, 2013, 12:21:43 AMMy "first time" was driving through New Mexico and Arizona late at night, on business, somewhere around 1995.  I don't even recall the show, and just remembered the voice and the intelligence.  Art was talking to an older, western fellow who was a regular caller, a loner who I recall later got cancer or some illness and died (anyone remember that guy, who lived in Art's neck of the woods, and was also a desert loner?).  It was just a feeling of comfort, listening to the two men talk, like pulling on comfortable clothes that fit just right.

I thought this was some local show (I'm from Michigan), and hated that I couldn't get it.  A couple of years later it popped up in the UP of Michigan, where I lived, and I've rarely known such joy since (a sad commentary on my life, but that's another story).

Quote from: SuccubusXXX on December 13, 2016, 02:29:53 PMI'm not 100% sure I want to be gone with the succubus, I need to research it a bit more. Some say they are evil and suck the life out of you, others say that having one is the best thing ever happen to them.. I must be honest she is very sexuel and the touch is  complete and total exctacy no human can put an other in this state of absolute body trembling orgasmic electrifying energy corsing through my body from head to foot. To summon one was so easy I can't believe it worked.. but it did work.
