Topic: Serious Discussion / The next President Clinton

Originally posted by issendorf:

Rubio isn’t that bad!

He’s not much of anything, though. Just ethnic. And cherubic.

And Jeb and Fiorina I would think aren’t that terribly objectionable. If Kasich runs, he’d be fairly tolerable I imagine as well.

Though, if Jeb ever became an actual contender, people couldn’t seriously talk smack about the “Clinton dynasty” anymore, or else they’d be giving the Democrats a rebuttal on a silver platter.

Then again, they’ve already been given dozens of silver platters by waiters made out of silver platters during the last election, so maybe that wouldn’t be a problem.

(well and Rand I suppose, but I love Rand so be gentle with him please).

At least I agree with about a third of what he says, he’s just also a plagiarist. He is pretty cute, though.

Oh let him have this jhco. It’s actually kind of adorable that he thinks Hillary is a good campaigner and is oblivious to the fact she has as much of a personality as a bowl of oatmeal.

Hey, at least it would be better than four years with Mitt “porridge” Romney.

Oh please, jhco would have already started talking about how much bigger his gun-shaped America boner is compared to yours.

Seriously, though, you’re being an ass.


Anyway, here’s what I got:

John Wayne
Utah
Great Salt Lake
Salinity
Desalination

Now let’s try Desalination to Beyonce.

Let me guess, the hat the blind C guy took was made of denim, which is usually blue, he knows this because the texture of denim is very distinctive compared to most other materials and the general ubiquity of the phrase “blue jeans”.

Well… You’re not wrong. I mean, you’re supposed to be able to narrow down the possibilities using logic, but yeah, C is wearing a blue hat.

Your turn.

Yes, I am the greatest mathematician, you filthy arithmetic plebs can’t even comprehend the advanced calculations running through my noodle.

The odds of the new car being behind either is exactly 50-50.

It seems like that would be the case, but it isn’t. It seems counter-intuitive, but this helped me understand it better by showing every possibility that could happen and by extension the odds of it happening.

Anyway, I just found this one.

Inside of a dark closet are five hats: three blue and two red. Knowing this, three smart men go into the closet, let’s call them A, B, and C, and each selects a hat in the dark and places it unseen upon his head.

Once outside the closet, no man can see his own hat. A looks at the other two, thinks, and says, “I cannot tell what color my hat is.” B hears this, looks at the other two, and says, “I cannot tell what color my hat is either.” C is blind. C says, “Well, I know what color my hat is.” What color is his hat?

unless you mean that your weight = x and that x = x + x/2, in which case its infinite kgs

Actually, if you put the equation as x = 50 + x/2 and solve for x, you’d find that x= 100

So you weigh 100 kgs.

Yes, it does. When you made your original choice, you had a 66% chance of picking a wrong door. Nothing that happens subsequently changes that. So get rid of it every time.

Yeah, that’s all there is to it. The floor is yours beau.

Okay then. Uhh, I dunno, how about the Monty Hall problem?

You have three doors to choose from, two of which are wrong. After you pick a door, you are then shown which of the two doors that weren’t picked was wrong. You can now decide to stick with your first door or change to the unopened door. Which choice gives you the highest probability of choosing the correct door?

By about seven inches. You’re essentially trying to find the change in the radius of the belt, and by reverse engineering the circumference to get that radius (i.e C/[2*pi*r]) ends up giving you the simple forumla of “change in r= X/(2*pi)” because by trying to find the change in the circumferences the extra million meters cancel each other out.

I feel like this requires some calculus to solve correctly.

I’m too lazy for that though, so I came up with 1.67 miles.

I told you the reason I made this alt. Not alt(s) It is not to be inflammatory, I know some of the mentality of the Kongregate staff and how petty some of them can be regarding the forum, so I chose to make this alt to talk in specific about this issue in this thread that caught my eye. No one will find my main as I use a completely different computer and internet ISP for that account. I also act differently, far more silly than the serious nature I am presenting here.

All I’m hearing is you’ve got something to hide.

Hoo boy, I can’t even imagine how fun college is going to be for you.

Also, none of your posts plagiarized Wikipedia, just the one from an account you say is not yours. So why are now you acting like you were the person who made that post?

No, it’s even worse that way. Now you’re plagiarizing Wikipedia’s style and format, too.

I quote in this way so everyone knows exactly who I am directing the comment at, and to better help me find the post I made later on. From what I can see, it is not against the guidelines so for my benefit I need to keep doing it. Sorry if you do not like it, but life’s a bitch and you can’t always get the way you want.

Heh, it’s funny. That is the exact -almost word for word – same reason the other Vangaurde alts gave for not editing your quots. Almost like he was trying to get that reaction out of you.

I think he just played you like a dimestore fiddle.

Since this guy is having personal hissyfit issues, anyone else want to chime in on this topic?

No.

Nope, you totally are. You did not use a contraction there, which means you have to be Vanguarde.

Originally posted by vikaTae:

It’s certain he will, but as is usually the case, odds are the new alt will be from a completely different area of the world, with a completely different personality, and a completely different set of values (and the exact same writing style / emotional trigger points). So either way, the ‘Canada is better than everyone’ rhetoric is likely done for a while.

Originally posted by cromagin2:

I realize she does not need to be obese. I am playing the percent chances that she is, gambling. The statistics say 7 out of 10 sleep apnea sufferers are obese. That gives me good odds she is obese.

Okay… Why the hell do you care, then? You’re not saying anything he hasn’t already said, so what’s your point?

2012, March 15th to September 12th, NOBO

Err… Wait, I’m confused. Wouldn’t that make you 24-25? I thought you said you had teenage kids.

EDIT: Yeah, you said they were in their twenties here. I’m not trying to acuse you of lying or anything, I’d just like to know what’s up.

What are you talking about? When I was 21 and before I had kids and when I lived in the USA I rode my bicycle across the USA before it was even a ‘thing’ – in the 70’s. After my kids were long gone from the house and I was established in Canada for a long time I decided to go thru-hike the Appalachian Trail in 2012.

Oh okay, I thought you said you both rode your bike through the US and hiked through the Appalachian in 2012, when you were 21.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Should anti-vax people be banned from traveling and having children?

Originally posted by cromagin2:

I did this with my kids, parties like this were common and built natural immunity. It works.

Yeah they were, back when chicken pox was common because people didn’t get vaccinated from it.

I am surprised so many have not heard of this, you all must be very young.

I counted one guy who said they didn’t know what pox parties are.

Instead of leaving it to chance when a child gets sick you can more or less plan them to get sick to aquire the immunity.

Or, you know, so they didn’t get it later in life where they could run the risk of becoming sterile if they get chickenpox, or so they didn’t get smallpox. I don’t know what the benefit to doing this with measles would be, though.

Originally posted by occooa:

I looked it up and it seems like it’s not even a new fad. It existed before many common vaccines were developed, such as chicken pox.

Oh yeah, I think something similar was done a long time ago where people would give themselves cowpox to become more resistant to smallpox. At least with chicken pox the idea is to do it early in the kid’s life because the virus is much more harmful when they’re adults.
