He is stealing upvotes like he steals packages.

#MODABUSE

Just be lucky it didn't get axed...for now.

Comment 26 May 2016

I've maintained all along that I'm just the fall guy for all the mod actions. 

What are you talking about, FP? You are easily in line behind me, 3M, and Andy Vance. 3M's probably the soup du jour. Well, maybe AV is not getting blamed so much now that some crazies are gone, but he's gotten a lot of shit in the past. 

Ohhhh...you mean that you get blamed for MOD actions during the MOD Meetings. Well, that is certainly true. AV and I always plan how to pin things on you while we sneak Zima in the back room.

How So? 

My comment was a little snarky, but mostly because I didn't take the time to write out all of my thoughts. Basically, Jobs was instrumental in bringing some great technology to the masses but I think it would have arrived, in some form, regardless. I think that he helped shape what we have but I don't think you can blame technology for people ignoring each other. That is a problem with the person and not the technology. The technology makes it easier, but it is still a choice. 

You don't think its hilariously sad that you walk into any bar these days and you see 4 people sitting together, and not saying a word to one another? 

I have never noticed this. But maybe I am not paying attention. I'm probably looking down at my phone too much to notice.

Nobody knows how to have a conversation anymore, and its actually effecting job performance.  I interview people now who can't even look me in the eye, or anywhere outside of the desk in front of them.  They literally have a hand near their pocket, as if that thing in their pocket will destory them if they don't assure it that they are right there when it needs them.

I do think that these arguments are over the top. I know a lot of youngins that are plenty capable of a conversation and I don't think people have a harder time looking into eyes when talking. I have struggled with this my entire life because that is just the way I grew up. And I grew up before the age of any mobile device.

BVasically, I think people could be more respectful when hanging out, but I don't think our world is going to shit.

Thanks for having fun with it...and welcome! And glad to see you helping.

Looking forward to seeing what you and Nate come up with.

Comment 18 May 2016

Haha. Someone was a reader on the site before becoming an intern.

Comment 18 May 2016

Haha. Touché, Rubix, touché.

But wasn't that a case of parthenogenesis? I assumed that breeding involves fertilization. I could be wrong, though.

Then he trained his Sister's kid to be a notorious serial killer and abandoned his own daughter to go live in hiding on some windswept rock in the middle of the ocean.  I think his name was Luke something

Dude! Spoilers! As you can see in one of my comments above, I am not MENSA, and would never have made this connection if you had not just layed it out for me.

SMDH.

I know that maybe you are not a biologist, but I'm pretty sure there is not much experimenting in cat breeding. They either do it or they don't. And no, the males cats will not impregnate another male cat and female cats will not impregnate another female cat. In fact, the females cannot impregnate the male cats, it must be male to female. So you don't have to worry about these situations during your "experiments".

Boy, DJ really got you guys good.

Comment 16 May 2016

Hey in my defense I have been known to hand out a few as well.

Yeah, and the leader of the mafia also gives out some cash to people to maintain power, too.

Comment 16 May 2016

Well BVTW, I may still like to get down on Frday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday, but hanger doesn't do much for me.

#MODswantUptonGIFs

In a GIFree world, I will take all the Upton GIFs there are. Much better than the hanger GIFs we see on this site. Although, admittedly, there is no jiggle in hanger GIFs...so they are safe for this site.

Comment 16 May 2016

So I should start saying my goodbyes? DX

Don't be silly.

We wouldn't want you to have the pleasure of saying goodbyes ;)

Comment 16 May 2016

Yeah...the staff and MODs tolerate a lot. But you can't be a dick to everyone all the time and then not expect to get the ban hammer.
