I've lived in a lot of towns in Arizona.
Noticed it was a desert.
Have never figured out why they grow a water intensive crop like cotton there.
Must be the cheap canal water.

I had one that garnered over a dozen hits from TF'rs and then went red, but this one they greened.

I can never figure the mods out, I just thank them for helping me out when I am jonesing for green.

Pretty cool that you are able to monitor TF as a "liter".

What's your secret?


It's probably been a while since you submitted a link. Submit a link, for everyone's sake, don't make it to StormFront or NaziTeletubbies.realdoll.com this time, and see what happens. Look closely and look all over because at some point, a small but very nice change was made.

This article reminds me of a joke that I heard a long time ago -

Person 1: Have you ever smelled moth balls?
Person 2: Yes.
Person 1: How did you get their little legs apart?


Thank you! I am here all week! Try the veal!

Sorry about that. I didn't read all of the comments before I posted. My apologies for stealing someone else's thunder.

Before you call people an alt, you should try and be more observant of the world around you.

Of course, if you were observant of the world around you, you couldn't be such an idiot and preposterous knee-jerk anti-semite.

Look for it mosquito, it's there on your users page, recent tab.

But if you want to apologize for distrusting me and calling me an alt, you sad sack of hate, now would be timely.

Were all those redlights that YOU submitted?

Because if so, I'll gladly apologize for accusing you of being an alt - right after you apologize for calling me an "anti-semite".

If not, well, I guess not.

I submit a lot of redlights. Some have been insta-red.

The shame of it is though mosquito man, you are an anti-semite, you have shown that many times over, and we discussed it here: Link (new window)

But I'm not alt.

If you think I am, all you have to do is provide any proof of that, and hopefully include who you think I am alting for, and why, and what is my agenda.

Noting a new section on my users page that shows me what I have in the queue is not actually evidence that I am an alt. Your not noticing it, even after I told you to submit a link, and then look all over, says a great deal about your powers of inattention.

Anyway, sadly, I have to say I've been called an alt by *worse* than you. There's a little trolly guy who comes through to call me that and who in the several times he has done so, has actually never engaged with a single point I've made to explain why I am a dumbass or an alt or anything. He just shouts alt and says nothing more.

But sadly, you had the perfect opportunity just now to say, oops, sorry, but you couldn't do that. Never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity, do you?

Still pissed at yourself that it took you to so long catch the play on words in "Amos Quito", RoyBatty?

I'm not pissed, and one of the reasons I have any amount of respect for you, and it's quite low, but it is because dammit, yeah, I should've seen that.

Regardless, you wanted to be known as a buzzing needling trifling pest, so I'm just trying to oblige you. It does fit you nicely.

In that thread we were discussing ASSIMILATION - and anyone who bothers to read the link will see that I feel that ethnocentrism, racism, "nationalism" religious supremacism are among the greatest liabilities that we face in the modern age. I believe that if we are going to survive as a species in our technologically advanced world, we need to STOP seeing ourselves as a bunch of squabbling groups each pursuing our OWN interests to the detriment of other groups, This in-group vs outgroup mindset creates strife and wars, and these days the stakes are just too damn high.

The only apparent solution: Assimilation - learning to change our mindset from one of competitive tribalism to global cooperation, but YOU find that thought utterly antithetical to your Tribal instincts, and see the very notion as a threat to your existence - not as an individual, but as a self-centered narcissistic group competing with out-groups.

The reasons that I pay a lot of attention to one group in particular were articulated in the thread you linked to.

And please, there is no need to apologize for calling me an "anti-semite": The accusation is as hollow and meaningless as if you called me a giant purple three-toed alien. Your silly ad hominem attacks are merely pathetic attempts to silence rational discourse when you find that arguing your position is pointless because it is indefensible.

Anyway, I apologize for calling you an alt, and I do not expect you to apologize for calling me an "anti-semite", for asking you to do so would be asking you to abandon your last refuge.

I do enjoy reading your offerings, RoyBatty, and would hope that in spite of our differing perspectives, we can continue to enjoy civil discourse.

Sadly, I have accused you to others of probably being a pretty nice guy, just completely off his rocker. But I do "enjoy" seeing you show up, even when you are dressed, as you are now in Red 5, and that is because you actually can form an argument, yes, it's argumentum-ad-rectum but still that's far beyond most farkers.

Also sad, is that while I don't toss around "anti-semite" too often, because I know that in 2011, most claims of it are often nonsense and just deflection, sadly, you fit the bill dude, and we've discussed that. That you are a 50ish white guy, of Northern European stock, that feels everyone else, but starting with the Jews, and mainly just the Jews should assimilate to fit your behavior, is weak grounds for you to stand your ground that you are not anti-semitic. If I saw you in any other thread, making that claim about any other group, that might help. That you bring it up in threads completely unrelated to Jews does not.

Hey, that one baking in the queue turned green. Now I'm being accused of getting it from Tosh.0. Sigh.

I'm not going to bother, I'm pretty busy the next few weeks, and I know what we discussed. Kind of a critical time for me. We'll talk in the future and try again to convince each other and fail.
