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.

teirs 11 - 13 we have raided friday nights
we switched this teir to just saturdays

add in that i am on vacation in utah til sunday morning

and action-

-text to RL-
so hows the raid going?
RL - great 1 shot doggies and feng, on to the troll!

me - GL and gratz on the kill!

RL - thanks! we did it with 6 pugs!

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!
- well and faster disease ticks duh!

this is followed by a10 min call with both ami and our RL (who are roommates) busting up

TL:DR - i got trolled hard by Ami and our RL

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).

See that is the issue with you guys...

You must understand that a system with:
2parties where the 2rule since there is a democracy
is totally differente from
5parties where the 2rule since there is a democracy

P.S. Let the people live in ignorance pls :P
P.P.S. We use a deputy by district based on district's number of voters. (more voters more seats)

I wont lie, there is part of me that wants to play WoW, there is part of me that didn't want to leave WoW. But there is also a larger part of me happy I don't play, happy I'm not trying to get raid ready, happy I'm not dealing with some of the insanity that has happened since I left.

And there is my wife. Happy that one night a week I'm not sitting and yelling at my computer, and occasionally breaking a headset because someone did something stupid.

Maybe if the barrier to re-enter didn't feel so high (and I admit, it's probably just a feeling, and it isn't as bad as it looks), I would think about it. But like I've said before. Getting back in, getting to 90, getting geared, doing stuff, and dealing with the dailies and rep just DOES NOT interest me at all, and puts the buzzkill on my desire to try things like this.

Though I'm not going to lie, looking at how hard it was for mione to pull that off, and the fact that they died as they killed DW, means I'm probably a tier of gear away from being able to pull it off. The "closest" I ever got to Mione time wise from their first kill to mine was 7 weeks. (Lady Deathwhisper).

And a slight buzzkill is knowing that I only get "my share" of the bosses gold now. I'm not saying that soloing should be crazy profitable, but after you get a kill, that 200+ gold was really nice to offset repairs and consumables, and gave you steady income while doing it. Soloing MC, Kara, Mags, Tk, SSC, Naxx, etc.. paid my bills to work on the harder stuff, like Ulduar, Koralon, ICC, Cata content, etc... But that's my "I bled myself dry to get crusader on two toons in Wotlk" side talking.

I easiliy dropped thousands of gold per boss in consumables and repairs getting things together for some of the harder things. Sindragosa, LK, Koralon, AOI, ToC, Illidan.....

IN all seriousness though, I'm looking forward to Raegwynn and Mionelol soloing challenge modes. I've seen some videos of them going at it, and I'm really curious to see how far they will get. One of them actually got to the last boss of a challenge mode.

LOL I assure you, Mr. Davis has nothing on me. During ICC Progress in WotLK I went through 4 headsets. By Cata, I had stopped breaking them as often, and just learned to unplug the mic, and sling them down around my neck. I occasionally broke a jack or two in the process.

For god's sake. Buy from Koss. They have a LIFETIME warranty. I spent $45 on the headset about 5 years ago and have replaced them free of charge two or three times since then.

Do they replace them when you throw them against the wall so hard that the molded cases on the ears shatters, spilling their "guts" onto the floor?

Because during ICC, thats what would happen. We'd be humming along great, making progress, I'd get excited that TONIGHT might be the night I get to pull Arthas, only to watch the derp train show up on Valithria, or Sindy, or BQL, or Put, and my chance at getting to pull him would go right down the shitter.

Who remembers this little known fact?
The first time I killed LK was on an ALT because our healing core was "meh" at the time for Wednesday nights, and having a disc priest on the fight allowed us to 2 heal it. It was my disc priest and a Healadin. WE rocked the hell out of that fight, and he got the healing mace.

I highly doubt that will cover me smashing them against a wall in a "hulk mad" moment because some dipshit in a video game didn't know which way to move when Rotface turned around and hurled all over him, or made him shat a baby glob.

Let's be realistic here. Lifetime warranty against regular usage. I've had some of the plastic crack off (not like I had a tantrum either) and the wire in the microphone snap before.
