Our weekly question and answer session is here. Along with our favorite comments from the week gone by. There were quite a few good ones, and I think I may have skipped a couple. Everybody turned into a poet this week offering up so many alternatives to our daily poetic review of the news. Below are the best of the week.
WilltheDill asked, "Dude, is there a way to make the ads you just added a bit less intrusive, the ones between the content and the comments?" We are working on how to fit them into the layout, so hopefully we will have fixed the intrusive issue by Monday.
The Livid Librarian suggested, "I have completely given up on pointing out the grammatical errors on this site. I just accept it as one of their quirks, and I’ll just hope that they eventually hire an editor to take care of these things. In the meantime I’ll read sentences several times over until they make sense to me." Actually we are planning on doing that and will post the details in the next several weeks. We kind of like that the site's content goes up in an unedited manner, but I guess we should get somebody to fix the obvious errors. We will let you all know when we start our search for one.
And your comments of the week:
Faux fur follies?
Kim Jong Un is mad
I guess this will end real bad
LA I feel sad
Flossy even went so far as to offer up a song:
To the beat of the Eurythmics “Here Comes the Rain Again”
Here come the reds again
dropping bombs on me from a new country
dropping bombs on me like a stupid sanction
I want to walk in the cold winter
I want to talk like I’m alive
I want to hide into a bunker
It’s nuclear stew
Photog17 started making quite the argument, then he realized that he was wasting his time commenting about complete nonsense on this site:
You overestimate the genius of the human mind. As soon as they get our brains, they will sit in front of TVs eating TV dinners. What the hell am I arguing?
The Livid Librarian correctly pointed out:
Isn’t threatening an entire economy if you get punished terrorism?
Photog17 wrote this poem on the filibuster:
Here stands a man
with a plan
to put a ban
on flying unmanneds
He stands for half a day
and then everyone is gay (in the old sense, ie. happy)
that the drones will go away
but unfortunately they are here to stay
And Mr. Dotdotdot took another approach:
A man takes a stand
his first name is Rand
a friend of mine joined a band
he mostly uses his right hand
he also walks on land
and likes to play with sand
his band was universally panned
which eventually led to them being banned
In a thread where the commenters were looking for a name for a new site in order to live next to a giant salty lake bly offered:
How about Stockingfood?
Flossy wrote a haiku on the passing of Hugo Chavez:
Hugo Chavez dead.
Quick! Investors to the floor!
What’s the price of oil?
Living life is like slowly watching society devolve.
