    Go ahead, you deserve one. America was founded based on theft.

    We need to add "Like ambiguously", "Like ironically" and "Like, but not really" features.

    In the mean time, we can use words and sentences to get ideas across, like our grandparents did!

    He does have a point in that murder charges may not stick.
    But does that mean the court won't be able to convict for manslaughter?
    Why?

    I like where this is going.
    I propose there are special "like" options for members of the 50K+ post club. Iirc currently just myself and Warpus, but it will give incentive to post more :)

    I think that when you get to 50k posts you should reset back to zero. It will encourage people with a ton of posts to post less :p

    Just like every other country it was based on conquest. People seem to have extremely naive view about humankind and history.

    I'll assure you that majority of states did not, in fact, commit anything close to Manifest Destiny. Why would Hitler base his plans of extermination for Eastern Europe off it, if every country has done it?

    Sorry, but Kyriakos has got you bang to rights. We'll simply keep a tally of how many postcount resets we've had.
    Logical fallacy detected.

    A truly damning argument against collectivism.


    That was kind, thank you.

    We also need an "I see what you did there" like, along with the rest.

    *dead* to rights.

    Also, even if you got the expression right, which you did not... that particular expression isn't appropriate in these particular circumstances.

    Google converts "dead to rights" to "bang to rights", and the latter is what I am more familiar with, even if it gets fewer hits (0.7 billion) compared to dead (1.3 billion).
