I haven't watched one of these in a while. Is there always that crystal chandelier hanging visually right over Obama's head like a, ahem, crown? Just sayin', kind of a poor choice given the annoying monarch shit.

Straight couples, however, are trying to ban Duggar marriages. In fact, the country should be banning their family from living here. Just imagine what the Duggar family's carbon footprint must be!
Nov 12, 2014 Bigsfrottin commented on If You Didn't Vote, Why?.
Because I'm registered in Pierce County but temporarily living in Whatcom County, and even though I made sure well ahead of time that the election people had my correct mailing address, I didn't get a ballot! And since I was not able to swing down to Pierce County before the election and it was too late to have them send another, I was fucked, yet again. This also happened to my boyfriend who is registered in King County and a friend who I believe recently registered in Whatcom County - so he was able to vote on election day at an office. I wonder how many others simply didn't get a ballot and couldn't get another sent in time.

I stand with you Charles.

But I will have the U.N.I.T.Y part of that song stuck in my head all day. Maybe that's a good thing.

@11 and 19, just what I was thinking. And I want that dress.

Progress would be to imbue the checkout robots with the personality of a human checker. And every now and then one machine would say to the other "how are you operating?" and the other machine would reply "I'm out of order in 30 minutes."

For the US specifically, 71.2% of the population lives in Urbanized Areas (UAs) of 50,000 or more people, according to the 2010 Census.…

Yo if a lot more people started using and supporting public transit - there would be much more political will to improve and expand public transportation thus increasing the number of people with access to it. Considering over 50% of the world's population lives in urban areas and that number is projected to reach 70% by 2050*, I don't think it's valid to argue that public transportation just wouldn't work for most people because they don't live in dense enough areas. Obviously if you don't live in a real city you can stick to trucks, tractors, and horse trams ;)
Also, they do wonders with motorbikes in Vietnam - you wouldn't know it by looking at one but a motorbike is both a family sized vehicle and a cargo hauler. I think that should be the non-public transit automobile of choice in the countryside and city.
