To answer your final question, given the fact that I don't feel the need to sink to emotional blackmail and debased pandering...yeah, I am really that much better than those who would, and those who'd support them (You/Santoro). Glad we could finally clear that up.

The thread is back anways you big whiners.

Message board rules:
Rules?  We don't need no steeenkin rules!  Well, maybe one.  Be nice to each other.  We're serious about this one.  Disagree, debate, argue at will - but please be respectful.  Messages that are antagonistic or contain profanity will likely be deleted, and repeat offenders banned from posting.  Oh, also - I do not mind the occasional emulation related or other off-topic post.  This is an online community as well as a discussion forum after all.  However, please do bear in mind the intent of the board is to discuss arcade controls and related topics.

NO ROM REQUESTS

Thanks!

I would consider my post antagonistic in nature.  My bad, and I am considering myself warned.  

MrC, we can make up after today.  :-*  

Even if Kerry wins.  

If Bush wins, naturally I'd be extra nice to you, kinda like killing you with insincere kindness, but either way, your passion is encouraging - people care! - although you encourage far more riff-raff than I care to hear from ;)

Hey Saint, I was listening to Lewis Black today....do you happen to be a fan of his work?  You strike me as exactly how he was portraying himself.....can't remember the CD, but it was the one where he is in Minnesota.

I LOVE Lewis Black.  He could read the weather forcast and I would still laugh because of his anger shtick.

Yeah, I just picked up the Minnesota concert (current politics/Iraq) one this past weekend and was listening to it today....he seriously made me think of saint!

I also picked up Ron White's CD - that M'er F'er almost caused me an accident, I was laughing so hard!

My buddy in NC - favorite line from The White Album (or is it The Black Album?) once he found out I was from WI - "30-some-odd inches of snow fell, or as you here in WI call it a dusting..."  He honest to Rudy pissed his pants when we heard that the first time - he's dying of laughter, I'm sitting there going "he nailed that one pretty good!"

I can't get to that. Might be my browser.

If you have XM radio they play him on XM Comedy XL quite a bit.  He has this routine about Starbucks being on overy corner, it gets me roaring every time.  

Don't judge him by his Daily Show appearances, his uncensored stand-up is just great.

Too bad we didn't have anyone guarding it.  :-\

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6323933/

"At the Pentagon, an official who monitors developments in Iraq said U.S.-led coalition troops had searched Al-Qaqaa in the immediate aftermath of the March 2003 invasion and confirmed that the explosives, which had been under IAEA seal since 1991, were intact. The site was not secured by U.S. forces, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity."


WTF?!?

Saddam had banned explosives?!?
Do the French know about this?
