I got admitted to the University of Chicago!!
Ok ok ok it's only the Master's Program and I'm only getting 1/3 funding, but IT'S STILL SOMETHING!
So happy right now
Double rainbow pony balloon party!
Garts! We'll have to do real deep dish pizza if you want sometime.
They forgot the indigo parrot.
My rave: We can now and (see the thread in Site Feedback).
There is no indigo light listed on the visible electromagnetic spectrum, so that's presumably why.
Roy G. Biv.
The "i" stands for indigo.
I find your lack of colour disturbing.
I'm aware of that, but whilst indigo light does have a specific wavelength (445 nm), it is rarely included on charts of the EM spectrum.
This is not the colour you're looking for.
I sense… something…
It's just a pigment of your imagination.
So, Rand Paul doesn't like the Republicans' proposal for replacing Obamacare. He supposedly has his own proposal, but what he probably wants is just a complete repeal, full stop, because the idea he's been floating is Republicans should first just do a clean repeal, and then figure out something that they can agree on to replace it. To me it seems he's counting on there being no consensus for what to replace it with on that second vote, so the net result will be a repeal and nothing else. What's his grounds for proposing this two step process? Well, "repealing is the one thing we know for sure Republicans agree on." How do we know that? Because as recently as 2015, they took a unanimous vote to that effect. The vote was political theatre. They knew full well it didn't really commit them to anything because Obama would of course veto it. But they could go back to their districts and brag that they had voted to repeal it. But now Paul can pretend like that vote was a real vote, and legitimately call on Republicans to take it again (they'd only be saying what they'd already said before) in his attempt to sabotage Paul Ryan's bill.
Just fun to watch their own previous fraudulence come back to bite them. Well, and even more fundamentally, to watch them biting them.
Congrats! Chicago is an elite program.
I've rediscovered the joy of making comics for DYOS!
It's not as fun when you realised that there are millions of people who had better not catch even a cold or be stung by a mosquito because there is a real, significant risk that nobody will be there to help them -and those who might want to can be banned by law from doing so.
Yeah, I know, Tak. I can't actually root for TRump to mess this up (even though I'd like to see them suffer the political consequences of doing so) because this issue has real live consequences for my real live fellow citizens.
If there's anything on the web which deserves the label femsplaining, it's this. Can we all agree on that, at least?
I think if you have to frame your argument by creating a mocking term (femsplaining is as dumb as mansplaining), any basis for taking it seriously is diminished.
Edit: Why is that a rave anyways?
Not really. Mansplaining is mostly used to shut down male critics of feminism, yes, but it's a valid term for men who explain (without invitation) the 'male side of the story' to rape victims or women who have suffered at the hands of men.
What constitutes a rave and how does it differ from my post?
That's called being a knob. Or, were this not a family friendly forum, the focal point of an animal's posterior.
