General / How many of you want me to step down?

Yeah, I've been rather lazy recently. I've got lots of other things on my plate IRL (you know, high school problems), so I'm mainly focused on school stuff, and as such, I'm rather slow at keeping up with the responsibility that's required of me on the forums. Other than patrolling the general category every once in a while to make sure nothing is too out of the ordinary and making a couple of posts in the LL every now and then, I've pretty much completely neglected my duties. Spell pretty much hit the nail on the head in his fused thread (although he does exaggerate a little about the prank thing).

I'm going to put up a poll so that you guys can remain anonymous if you want to. Not that I'd lash out at any of you for stating your honest opinion (provided that you're being reasonably civil), though. If it's clear that the majority of you think yes, then I'll have myself demoted to the War Veteran rank, and perhaps reclaim the General rank in the future, when I have more time to devote to moderation.

It's a good thing it hasn't snowed for thirty years where I am.

What makes secrets so alluring is their secrecy.

Dude, get a tripod.
The day I find a tripod for an iPhone is the day I sunbathe in the snow.

Alright we know that truths is a white boi now.

The mystery has been solved now.
I'm about as white as a Mexican person is Chinese.

I know who 1000truths is!!

Well, it looks like 1000truths is Katniss, but the true identity of 10000truths remains a mystery.

What language were you speaking?

Lieutenant League (Prank) / Disallowing the use of caps lock
« on: March 24, 2013, 10:35 am »
I believe that it is in the best interest of our leader to disallow the use of caps lock in a phrase or sentence. Because our leader promotes civility and respect, and typing wholly in capitals is disrespectful, uncivil and can be considered as shouting, it is in our leader's interest to issue a punishment to such people. I cannot think of a punishment that would befitting this, but perhaps our leader can.

Some images in the forum seem far too large, and can lag peoples' pages. I don't think that this is appropriate for a forum run by our leader, superluigi77. I'm not exactly sure on a specific pixel dimension limit, however. Perhaps our bright and intelligent leader can come up with an optimal pixel dimension size limit.

Number two, it would seem to be common sense to ban, and immediately delete, all images that explicitly or implicitly, through means of satire or informative fact, ridicule, criticize or otherwise show dissatisfaction or opposition to our leader, a humble servant of our leader, or the way our leader wishes to run things. Posting such malicious propaganda would be punished with a hefty punishment in PoW/JDC or a ban for any users who posted and/or made and/or collaborated on and/or showed any support for the image. We don't want any more whiny forum members to stir up a rebellious faction of sorts against our leader.

Number three. As our leader most certainly wishes to win the minds and hearts of the forum members, I believe that it would be beneficial for him if we start an 'image campaign' and have various posters strategically placed around the forums, showing support for our leader. Anyone that criticizes, ridicules or otherwise shows opposition to these posters or our putting up these posters would face being POWed, JDCed or banned. In addition, anyone showing any support to any opposition towards these posters would also face being POWed, JDCed or banned.

I personally think that these rules are reasonable enough, but only our leader is truly fit to decide, so I will wait for hid approval.

Do you have a link to this?

You could have AT LEAST kept the fused threads.

Wow... I thought it was like some forum clean-up thing or something. You even deleted the fused threads...?

Could have been better if you didn't take the video from a first-person perspective. We don't get to see the knives making contact because the camera shifts away. I also want to see your mysterious face.
I would have filmed it from a third-person perspective, but unfortunately, there is no ideal place in my backyard to prop my camera where you can get a clear view of me and the target.

And let me tell you, it is not easy to nail a headshot with a knife in one hand and a camera in the other.

Doesn't splodeing feel like it. It's snowing goddammit. I swear we're gonna get snow in July this year.
At least you have snow. It hasn't snowed for about 30 years where I live, and I'd have to drive for ~8 hours to get to a place with a good amount of snow.

This is not a difference between atheism and Christianity, per sé. This is a difference between atheists and Christians.

"And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse,
Who shall stand as a banner to the people;
For the Gentiles shall seek Him,
And His resting place shall be glorious."
It shall come to pass in that day
That the LORD shall set His hand again the second time
To recover the remnant of His people who are left,
From Assyria and Egypt,
From Pathros and Cush,
From Elam and Shinar,
From Hamath and the islands of the sea.
He will set up a banner for the nations,
And will assemble the outcasts of Israel,
And gather together the dispersed of Judah

That is the exact qoute, nowhere can you assume any differently, and you couldn't assume anything anyways as this is the word of GOD.
You can't just say, "That is to be taken metaphorically." In other words, what is written is not what is meant. Who are you to decide what ISN'T to be taken as other than the absolute WORD OF GOD. You are just twisting things around. xD
Simply because something is the word of God does not mean it must be taken literally, it simply means that it is something that God, an indisputable power in Christianity, has ordained to be fact. There are countless different metaphors that are used in the Bible, none of which should be terribly hard for a reasonable person to interpret. A very simple metaphor in Mark 7:21-22 is this:
"For it is from within, out of a person's heart, that evil thoughts come--sexual immorality, theft, murder..."
Now, you could argue that the heart isn't capable of thought processes and that it's the brain which is responsible for our conscious, but I'm pretty sure that our ability to reasonsís capable to determine that 'heart' in this context is not referring to our biological heart. We do not need to extensively think the verse over to determine the metaphorical meaning of 'heart'.

you know it's hilarious really
Chances are, your teacher will be somewhat suspicious that you and your friend are not using 'con él'. Not using a pronoun when you are using the same subject/object across multiple sentences can make it sound a bit like a run-on.

And let's not all forget that there is absolutely no need to set up a dichotomy between science and religion. Both are very important in living our lives, both can influence us positively if we allow it to, and both are necessities that we as humans cannot live without. They simply are different solutions to different problems. There is no reason why anyone has to choose between science and religion.

Along with this, the bible contradicts itself over and over again, and even does stupid things like mention the 4 corners of the world. (Mentioned by God).
Ah, the old take-a-quote-out-of-context trick. In this sense, 'four corners of the earth' does not literally mean the four geographical corners of the world.

He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth.
Of course, given the sheer number of versions of the Bible, this isn't word-for-word for all Bibles, but all of the Bibles say this to some effect in Isaiah 11;12. Anyhow, it is clear here that the expression 'four quarters/corners of the earth' means 'from around the world'. The expression is being used metaphorically, not literally.

Almost anything can be made to sound stupid if you take it out of context. What is important is that you understand how the quote is being used.
