    But a lovable psychotic asshole. I love the character.

    I am not sure that he was a psychotic... just cold and calculating. I agree with the rest.

    Of course I am. I keep getting better all the time, regardless of who is in power. But that's because the things that are really meaningful to me, are independent of who is in political or economic power. And if someone is living a life where that is not the case, I would strong advise you to make adjustments such that it is the case.

    Considering I was a high school sophomore who only worked in the summer back then, yes. I make a lot more money now (which still isnt much lol) and I don't have my own health insurance. But I do have a car

    Oh wait, the "A" key has worn out on my keyboard, I guess I have to stop using it. But then I can muse all night on why the "A" key wears out all the time and "E" is the most used......or why the enter key never wears out...

    Maybe its a conspiracy......
    I thnk it is because in Canuckistan that A is spelled eh and that may alleviate the problem, Eh?

    Eh? I'm hard of hearing.

    Saw a great slogan on a sweatshirt the other day:

    "Of course I say eh. I'm Canadian, eh? It's better than #$#@$in' huh!

    Methlymine smells like dead fish wrapped in Gym socks so you'll need to move out to a remote location to conduct your " experiments."

    Maybe I've been watching too much TV...
    The funny thing is my concentration was in organic chemistry and whenever I tell people that the conversation inevitably goes towards discussing the synthesis of meth. Clearly there is some interest......but I don't think I have the guts to do it (friend and classmate of mine got expelled for doing that :P )

    Nope, and neither is Charleston.

    Every time I turn around, it seems like another store I used to frequent is closing down. There are whole strip malls around here that are completely deserted.

    He's certainly an egotistical and selfish asshole with something of an irrational hubristic streak working against his better judgement a lot of the time.

    I'm not sure if I'd go as far as to call him "psychotic," though.

    In 2008, I had a great job,at a very old, very stable factory. I had every reason to expect that that was the last job I would ever have, that I could work there until I was ready to retire.

    In 2013, that factory was closed, putting me and about seven hundred other workers out of work.

    I'm now nearing the end of my government-funded retraining for a new trade, and in a couple of months, I'm going to have to go out and find a job. I'm scared to death of that point. If I do not find work very quickly, at that point, my situation is going to become very dire.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
