Felt like I'd been hurled 15 years into the past. Not the kind of bands you normally see playing shows anymore! Do they even have new content?!

Edit: And now I see a listing for Soundgarden! The heck is going on!


Everclear has been putting out albums pretty steadily, even with this being the 3rd lineup that Art has put out. They just dropped a new album earlier this year, it's not terrible. Definitely better than the last two, but not quite as good as the stuff the original trio put out. I'm not sure about Eve 6. I can't stand their singer.

Soundgarden's new album King Animal just dropped a couple of weeks ago, and is ok, it meanders a little at times.

I dunno, but just hearing Benedict Cumberbatch's voiceover was enough for me to go all

Of course, with so little details... I cannot tell if he is supposed to be khan or gary mitchell... Either way i am ok with it.

I mean, both characters have a history with kirk

the voiceover makes it sound more like khan, but the blond chick that resembles dr. dehner hints at gary mitchell as well~

The sharply divided US Congress has been able to agree on one thing at least - that the word "lunatic" should be banned.

The House of Representatives voted 398-1 on Wednesday to strike the term from all federal legislation, after the Senate did the same in May.

"Not only should we not eliminate the word 'lunatic' from federal law when the most pressing issue of the day is saving our country from bankruptcy," said Rep Gohmert in a statement.

"We should use the word to describe the people who want to continue with business as usual in Washington."

I concur. Well... I couldn't care really about the whole use of the word lunatic, but why this seems to be a bigger issue than the economy I'll never know...

Are they there to make decisions or to find common ground?

If it's to find common ground, instead of 399 congressmen, just put 5 boy scouts... It's cheaper...

Well, getting something done is a lot easier when you've found common ground. If they all agree, its a non-issue passing legislation - if there are strict partisan divisions, it gets alot harder, and the political "teasing" (as we call it here) comes into play - this can really slow down the process in an 8-party parliament, and is a grid lock in a 2-party system as there is noone to make a majority with outside of ones own party and fence jumpers.

RL - great 1 shot doggies and feng, on to the troll!

at this point i am getting a hint i am being trolled but hey, we have ran with lots of pugs before
anyway, this continues with Ami chiming in about the pug dk gemming int and spirit, reforging his mastery, dodge, and parry to haste

me thinking - facepalm...w/e ill go along with it!

Let me teach you how to do it: :P

1) Get 5different parties with different ideas
2) Every 5 years have elections
3) Always chose the same two parties to rule even if the ideas are basicaly the same
4) Make sure they have absolutly majority so they can get things done
5) Complain when they don't do anything (even if they are the same guys that didn't do anything 10years ago)
6) vote on the other one
7) every 5 years do 5 and 6
8) Call it a democracy

P.s. Ignorance is a bliss?!? (spelling)

If the same 2 parties have the rule with an absolute majority, it isn't a 5-party system, it is a de facto 2 party system. This is the de facto case in almost any electoral system where the votes are per seat, instead of "ofr a number of seats", which can then be subdivided regionally and locally in some fashion to ensure representation from all areas meet the regional or local votes. Such a system requires more seats than districts (on the order of 25-50% more seats than districts).
