    To be fair, since US' government more resembles an Advertising Agency than anything, the claim the private sector is in places more efficient might be correct. This becomes less so in more civilised countries.

    Or, drive it to the point of pointlessness by bickering over stupid points that are completely... pointless to the concept/idea at hand.

    What is the meaning of "is"? For example...

    Actually, that's called "ontology", and it's a major field of philosophical inquiry.

    So... what?
    This is precisely what I am talking about... it gets boring, at best, so quickly.

    I'd say that it was "exactly" what you were talking about, rather than "precisely". Precision strictly denotes the ability of a measurement to be repeated consistently, which isn't appropriate here, while exactitude merely denotes a high degree of accuracy.

    Quick - what's the difference between accuracy and precision?

    Perfect. Exactly my feelings as well.

    I get what you're saying, but I think the government could do things right if we first elect good people, b) get real campaign finance reform (to keep corporate influence to a bare minimum).

    God that sounds naive :lol:

    Koch, I genuinely wonder if I can get you to change your ways as easily as you once changed your signature.

    I didn't realize I'd be up before a committe for this hahahahahahaha

    Good grief.

    We need a commission to determine if we should even allow signature changes from now on...

    Of course we should. How else would I change only my bold text?

    No, it's way funnier when people do change them like that.

    Is my sig too self-centered? It has sentimental value, but I did put myself up there with Luxor the Moonprince a bit. Maybe that way too ambitious. I'm not that brave a man to stand up to the ice-fear the way he and his brat do.

    No one expects it!

    Still on about that? Hahahahah... wow... keep going, please. Nitpick at me for having changed my signature, in a fashion you apparently consider, too liberally.
