"Sensitive" people are now carefully examining the entire universe, trying to find something to be "offended" at. It won't stop until such time as the "offenders" learn to stop apologizing, and saying "freck off" instead. — brianvds, The ShoutBox Classics, 02/07/2018.

I'm not saying the news is sensationalist, but...



That's some pistol.

That's some pistol.
Or a tiny caliber.
You know it's cold outside when you go outside and it's cold.

Reminds me of this apocryphal story I heard in the army (but it sure rings true). It works best when you imagine the corporal speaking wiff a heavy Afrikaans eksint:

The new recruits are learning navigation skills. "Right," says the corporal. "You have a circle!" And he draws a little circle on the board. "180 degrees in a circle!" And he starts talking about angles and compasses and things. After a while one of the brighter recruits puts up a hand and asks: "But corporal, doesn't a circle have 360 degrees?"

The corporal does a double take, looking at the circle he drew. "No!" he barks. "It's a SMALL circle!"

Socialism is bad, because it's against god.... This went so well until the bible quotes started.

If there's any dichotomy I hate most, it's this one.
