Re: Obituaries

When a person devotes their life to making the world worse, them leaving the world is a thing to be celebrated. Decorum is just erasing the victims.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

Although it may bear pointing out that you don't do most of your tasting with your tongue. You taste with your nose. Your tongue has receptors for five, maybe six chemical types. There's "this is calorie-rich, keep eating this" (sweet/savory), "this contains a vital nutrient, keep ea...

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

Yeah there's lots of stuff that's got sour or bitter tastes to them, but I mean something that is entirely sour or entirely bitter with nothing else to it, the way salt is just salty and nothing else.

Re: Things That Go in Your Mouth

I gots a foodin' question. So like ... five tastes, right? The five basic tastes. We got sugar as being basically just raw sweet. Salt is basically raw salty. MSG is pretty much raw umami or whatever you call it.

Are there things that are pure bitter or pure sour?

The problem for me though is that, impeaching Trump really doesn't matter. Get him out, get rid of this gluttonous, non-stop lying, moronic, opaquely profiteering, orange clown makeup wearing, televisionaholic who tweets at SNL like a baby for making fun of him like they have done to every Presiden...

To be fair. "Cuck" is a pretty funny sounding word. Two comedy k sounds with an uh in the middle, it's basically the funniest possible syllable.

Re: Samurai Back

Yes, it's very easy as the white dude to come in and tell people to ignore all the little shit that keeps piling up, because there's other stuff they should worry about more. That they're being oversensitive and they have no reason to expect anything to not be purposefully offensive, especially you ...

Re: Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?

How can a legislative and executive coalition claim to be populist when they ram through this abortion they call a bill, which is by no means popular? Representative democracy is a failure. You don't pass a bill this miserably unpopular if you expect there to be free and open elections in a year an...

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

So are Mass Effect's, just you have an interminable driving minigame to get from map to map.

Also the main plot and most of the characters are unfathomably dull and generic. In ME2, the main plot switches from dull to bafflingly stupid, but the characters are a lot better at least.
