EnviroDude: brantgoose: They say that each cigarette you smoke shortens your life expectancy by four minutes.

Show me the math.

Every homosexual that died of HIV in the 80's agrees?


Stay classy. And keep saying things. You don't know it, but you actually ARE helping - just not in the way you think you are.

Hahaha local news websites are so adorable.


Holy crap this was Troy?

Man. It's amazing how much of stupid SE Michigan drama you miss when you live one effing county over.

/Troy, I would be disappoint, but I remember Y2K

Homosexuality is only more dangerous than smoking if you live in a place where people say things like "homosexuality is more dangerous than smoking."

Aidan: rtaylor92: Was the recall of Troy's mayor supposed to be national news at some point? I feel like this story and its presence on Fark is supposed to indicate that we are should have some frame of reference as to what the hell the author (or the submitter) is talking about. So some partisan mayor got recalled...and? Was there something awful she did? I see no reference in the article to the headline's claim about homosexuality (unless I missed it).

I have mixed feelings about recalls regardless (you voted for this person, you should suffer the consequences Troy)

Ditto. I work north of Troy (like, a mile away at most), and I still haven't the faintest idea what precisely made this woman a bad mayor, barring the idiotic comments she made. A faint bell rings in my head and sounds like "big money troubles", but I can't remember for what. A primer to bring folks up to speed would have been appreciated.


Turning down a few million in Federal funding for a bus+rail transit center on the border with Birmingham was kind of a big deal for the people who care about such things, and her hateful comments managed to offend just about everyone who isn't a teabagger. I don't know that she's any worse than the rest of the reactionaries who came into office over the last four years, but she made national news (briefly, of course) for being so public about her primitive views of sexuality. There are plenty of reasons to mock Troy, and having a whackadoodle mayor wasn't helping one bit.

AverageAmericanGuy: You don't have to like gays. You may have treated them with disrespect in the past. You may have a terrible, sordid history with persecution of gays.

But now you are the mayor of the town and you are the representative for ALL the citizens of it.

So knock it off, you idiot.


I wouldn't expect someone who said "I wouldn't expect a lib like you to understand context" to understand just why she's wrong, so I'm pleasantly surprised that you do.

Here's a story from the same city that may further that faith, or enrage you that they had to go to such lengths to save a library


As the son of a Librarian, I am glad it was saved.

Selena Luna: Anti_illuminati: brantgoose: 1. One dick sucked reduces your life expectancy by .... minutes
2. One vagina humped reduces your life expectancy by .... minutes
3. One slice of cheesecake with fruit compote and a 12 ounce cup of espresso reduces your life expectancy by .... minutes
4. One book by Danielle Steel read reduces your life expectancy by .... (not counting time lost reading)
5. One hour doing laundry reduces your life expectancy by 60 minutes.

That's all I got.

I'm having trouble answering this one because I don't know if the question means the actual time hands on or one wet cycle of laundry (my washer takes an hour and my dryer takes 1 hour, 15 minutes). If it's the second, then that really only takes me about 10 minutes, including the time to wait for the machine to fill.


I'm guessing some people need to sit in a laundry mat and wait.

Normal political criticisms were treated as devastatingly unfair personal attacks. Legal democratic processes were confused with assaults on their liberties. Expectations of professional behavior were perceived as unfair criticism of a political neophyte.

In other words, they behaved like typical conservatives.

Dhusk: WTF did I just read? That is one wretchedly written article.

So he's basically calling the recalled mayor a homosexuality (apparently a bad thing in his mind) and her supporters spoiled brats? Was that the gist of it? His prose was so torturous it was hard to tell.


Um... where the heck does the AUTHOR badmouth homosexuality or imply that Daniels was gay? Did you forget she was a woman and take the 'Iron Lady's Purse' comment as some kind of 'ooh, what a feminine mayor' insult?

The tone of the article is somewhat conversational instead of "I AM JOURNALBOT, HERE ARE THINGS THAT HAPPENED, FULL STOP", and assumes you know a little of what's going on beforehand, but it's not THAT confusing. Consequently, I enjoyed it.

Monday's meeting began with an invocation from a local pastor, the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, honorary proclamations awarded to a recycling group and the pastors of a Lutheran congregation on the occasion of the church's 50th anniversary.

Pastor Ingqvist was a little uncomfortable with the ceremony; he knew that he was going to see pictures of him trying to smile in the middle of that hiccup while accepting the award, on every refrigerator and bulletin board for the foreseeable future.

HotWingConspiracy: Sybarite: As a fan of the theater, I know I'm often worried about second-hand homosexuality.

I hate going places where they still have gay and non-gay sections in the restaurants, the gay is always wafting over when I'm trying to eat.


I don't mind. It makes my food taste FABULOUS!
