Is subby implying that Wagner has seen the light and is being genetically re-engineered into a proper mammal like those Outer Limits episodes with Robert Patrick? Otherwise once a lizard always a lizard (though mammal-friendly lizards are A-Okay in my book, unlike those frakking Toasters).

qorkfiend: DarkSoulNoHope: Dimensio: Hobodeluxe: ongbok: Demogorgon: sprawl15: tnpir: Nevada, not New Mexico, failmitter.

nevada used to be part of new mexico

New Mexico used to be part of Mexico.

Mexico used to be a part of Spain.

Spain used to be part of Pangea

Pangea used to be part of the space-time singularity that preceded the Big Bang.

You seriously want to stop it there, you couldn't do maybe Pangea -> Molten Earth -> Sol System -> Galaxy -> Universe -> Big Bang -> Gleam in G-d's eye? You had to stop it at Pangea? You bastard! :-P

Not to mention that we forgot Columbia, Rodinia, and Pannotia between Pangaea and Molten Earth.


Spain was part of Eriador

snowshovel: I'm not surprised that Republicans haven't gotten around to renaming the July as "Reagan" because July named after Marxist/Fascist/doesn't matter cuz not American Julius Caesar.
Followed by renaming August to Reagan.
Then maybe renaming January and June (FALSE GODS!) to Reagan.

Renaming March to Cheney would make some sense.


WHEREAS the common names for the months of the year are testaments to ancient and foreign rulers,
WHEREAS the great State/Commonwealth of {$name} recognizes the contributions of the late, great RONALD WILSON REAGAN (born in February) to this state/commonwealth and the entire United States,
WHEREAS the citizens of this state/commonwealth aren't about to give glory to some long-dead, laurel-wearing man-lover,

BE IT HENCEFORTH ESTABLISHED that the second, sixth, seventh, and eighth months of the standard calendar shall be known respectively as "Ronuary", "Nancetober", "Wilsonuary", and "Reaganember".

Anyone who joined the Republican Party prior to 1990 gets a pass. Your party left you, you didn't leave it.

Anyone who joined the Republican Party after 1990 is either a greedy, loathsome, reprehensible sack of shiat or a brainless moron. Either you knew the party had turned evil and you joined anyway or you're a helpless, easily-manipulated dimwit. So, Republicans born before 1972--wake up. Republicans born after 1972--fark you.

I'd put the date at 1980 really.

Super-big-money lobbing grew in the late 70s and took hold with Reagan in 1980.  Look at ANY trend that is related to politics and there is always some sort of turn or acceleration at 1980.  Certainly people like Nixon were ethically-challenged, but in 1980 it turned into a big business.  Nixon would have told corporate assholes to fark off if it was against his agenda.  Today whoever is in the presidency (and this is regardless of party) has to kowtow.

There are embedded memes here apparently.  First this whole 'used to be part of' thing which well it will wear off.  But I've visited this thread 4 times and the headline keeps changing. Currently it is Turkish wrestler.  Is this going to be a thing? Thought the first couple times I had imagined it.

As the only state in the union named after a foreign land, this shouldn't really be any surprise.  But seriously, how we even tolerate that nutria-ridden, Francophone province in these United States is beyond me.  We should give it back to the Incans.

New York, New Jersey. How about a state named after an English King?

Georgia is named after King George II, and North and South Carolina are possibly named after King Charles I (or rather, the Latin form, Carolus).


Then there's Maryland, Virginia, New Hampshire...

Our first settlers were some unoriginal bastards

Actually I remember going on a trip with my Dad to Turkey and Iran, back when the Shah was still in power. The Iranians were the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. The Turks were schmucks. Flying back to London on the official Turkish airline, the captain got on the loudspeaker and made an announcement something like this:

"Good afternoon. We're flying at, oh, 25, 30,000 feet and should be arriving at our destination in fifteen, maybe twenty minutes."

I have never been so grateful to get off an airplane.

nicely played.


On the announcement thing, last fall I had a 2 hour layover in Pittsburgh.  Weather was bad up NY/DC way, so lots of flights were getting changed around, etc.  I swear that the announcers in the terminal made a game of "just how FAST and UNINTELLIGIBLY can we let 5 gates know that their planes have changed and they need to go to another gate".  I mean, I know I'm not used to a strong Philly accent (one of the announcers really was a native, no doubt about it), but man, it was impossible to tell what they were saying after "attention gate 15, passengers of American Airlines flight....7124newyorktodallasthatflightisdelayedindefinitelybutyouhav ebeenreassi gnedtogate26intheCterminalwhichwillbeboardingin5minutestheplanewillnot beheldforlatearrivals"
