  1. While you make pretty speeches I'm being cut to shreds You feed me to the lions A delicate balance And this just feels like spinning plates I'm living in cloud cuckoo land And this just feels like spinning plates My body's floating down the muddy river
  2. I believe we have ourselves a sleeper troll, boys.
  3. Why do you think your example is any less susceptible to the ideas of determinism?
  4. Haha, you definitely knew how to pull me out. You know I'm always down for a good soccer discussion. It definitely seems like Messi is in a bit of a lull right now, I can agree with that. Despite that, he's still scoring goals at an incredible rate. It would be hard for you to convince me that if you were able to start a soccer team with any current player that you wouldn't choose Messi. His game has so few weaknesses, and the ones he does have I feel like he's constantly working to improve them. I never got to watch or experience a player like Michael Jordan in his prime. I honestly feel honored to have the opportunity to watch a competitor like Messi do what he does for as long as he's done it and for doing it at his age. I must say, if it wasn't for all the money and fame that he receives, I would honestly feel bad for Ronaldo. It must suck to be such a good player but always be considered #2.
  5. I don't feel like you're going to change your opinion about him, but I don't think it's fair to judge his overall ability on a single performance in a single match. The 2 players at the top of your list had just as many chances to show their leadership and awareness and guide Barcelona to a victory but didn't. As far as what separates him from the rest of your list, consistency. Iniesta is an amazing dribbler and passer, but at the end of the day you have to be able to score goals to win matches. While Messi has 4 fewer assists in La Liga than Iniesta (9 to 13) he also has 35 more goals than him (37 to 2). Xavi hasn't been performing up to his high standards recently either. We'll see how Van Persie looks after this season is over, but he has a lot of catching up to do if he wants to be mentioned in the same breath as Messi (and he's also 4 years older). Mata is underrated, but honestly I would prefer David Silva. And lastly I can't hate on Agüero because of my affinity towards Argentine players, but like Van Persie, he has to catch up. As far as 6-1 in La Paz: Maradona. 'Nuff said. (And he wasn't the captain)
  6. Didn't think I'd see dubstep and football mixed.
  7. All of this is completely true, though I find "I said I was reminded why I vote Republican" to be a bit ridiculous. Working at a grocery store will definitely give you a first-hand look at the issues we have with welfare and food stamps. The funny thing is that the businesses could really care less. It's still money in their pocket. But the combination of the abuse of the system and the overall attitude displayed by these people will easily make you question the system that's in place.
  8. What I mean is that we might be able to get you an autograph or at least something as compensation for this misunderstanding.
  9. Larry Gates, the store manager, is gone for the evening. I'm not going to doubt your story happened, as I don't think you're lying, but it doesn't sound like something Larry or even Publix as a company would do to customers within our store. I'm going to chalk this one up as a misunderstanding and if you'd like me to I can get with Larry and see if there isn't some way we can fix the situation. PM me if you'd like me to try to get it taken care of for you.
  10. The deal was that if you bought 5 of their sponsored items, you would get a gift.
  11. Uhhh, what are you talking about? I was there ( I work there in fact) and there was absolutely no such rule to get his autograph. I walked up and got my picture with him. I'm sorry you thought otherwise.
  12. In case you didn't read the description: 2004: Aransas County Court-At-Law Judge William Adams took a belt to his own teenage daughter as punishment for using the internet to acquire music and games that were unavailable for legal purchase at the time. She has had ataxic cerebral palsy from birth that led her to a passion for technology, which was strictly forbidden by her father's backwards views. The judge's wife was emotionally abused herself and was severely manipulated into assisting the beating and should not be blamed for any content in this video. The judge's wife has since left the marriage due to the abuse, which continues to this day, and has sincerely apologized and repented for her part and for allowing such a thing, long before this video was even revealed to exist. Judge William Adams is not fit to be anywhere near the law system if he can't even exercise fit judgement as a parent himself. Do not allow this man to ever be re-elected again. His "judgement" is a giant farce. Signed, Hillary Adams, his daughter.
