A sadist, a masochist, a murderer, a necrophile, a zoophile and a pyromaniac are all sitting on a bench in a mental institution, bored out of their minds. 
 
"How about having sex with a cat?" asked the zoophile. 
"Let's have sex with the cat and then torture it," says the sadist. 
"Let's have sex with the cat, torture it and then kill it," shouted the murderer. 
"Let's have sex with the cat, torture it, kill it and then have sex with it again," said the necrophile. 
"Let's have sex with the cat, torture it, kill it, have sex with it again and then burn it," said the pyromaniac. 
Silence took over... and the masochist says: "Meow."

daegog yes it does in every possible way. 

And this is why what you said was stupid. The picture you posted was taken by the Nazis themselves as part of a propaganda piece to show that the Jewish people are content and happy and are not being mistreated in any way.
The modern media is trying to show worst case scenarios and pass it off as everyday occurrences. Most of the photos used were actually taken 4 years ago during the Obama Administration. And we all know how President Obama is personally responsible for raping and torturing of children

dm2754 This is why i say you have zero credibility.

You LIE so often that there is zero reason to regard anything you say.  You do no research at all, you just pull shit out of your ass.

The picture i have shown above is a JAPANESE camp of a place in the Dutch East Indies (Java possibly?) where they held Dutch ex-pats.

So this has ZERO to do with NAZIS or JEWS.  It would have taken you all of 5 seconds to figure this out, but you just prefer lying.

dm2754 I'm curious. You've had understandable issues with English since it is your second language. For the most part, people have been cool and patient with your broken English, especially the ones who travel. Four days ago you wrote about the Declaration of Independence in a way that was grammatically correct and laid out in every-day English with slangs and everything. One member even responded that it was written with an eloquence that was not expected. Ever since, your comments have been in fluent English with some of your statements impressively written. What's up with that?

dm2754 That doesn't explain how you went from broken English in one comment, to the very next comment, and every one after, you are able to write like you've spoken English in North America your whole life. No amount of ESL lessons gets you the subtle language traits of a region. If anything ESL makes people talk in odd proper sentences. Even if your roommate was pointing out errors it would still just be him/her correcting what you have written not adding in the subtle nuances of the region.

dm2754 I wasn’t going to such a weird extreme, but I am still curious what is up with the jarring improvement in your writing style. And of course I use Grammarly as one of many editing tools. But that tool is designed for English speaking writers. There is no way Grammarly would make someone who is not completely fluent in English sound like they are. It’s not designed for that purpose. The tool’s false recommendations alone would make the writing odd. Not knocking the tool, it would still be useful to improve grammar.

kalron   If you're a Dr Who fan the question is 'who invented the sonic screwdriver' ?
Dr Who first used it in late March 1968
Star Trek character Gary 7 used a pen-like device that opened doors, locked them, stunned people, operated typwriters, etc in late March 1968  in the episode  Assignment Earth.

Was Gary 7 a timelord sent to keep Earth from blowing itself up ?

talk amongst yourselves

Gerry1of1 Considering this happened, I'd say he wasn't just a TimeLord but actually The Doctor himself :)


There has been a long debate about that.  While in actuality it was rather amazing coincidence, it one of the most fun fan theories out there.  The fact that Gary Seven was collecting companions as well is even more interesting.

Gerry1of1 There is no mention of masturbation in Genesis 38. What is described is coitus interruptus. And there isn't any reason to think that YWHW objected to that practice, in general. Onan was ordered to impregnate Tamar. He liked the sex, but at the important moment, he pulled out, because if she had a child, Onan would lose his inheritance. YHWH killed Onan for not following orders, sort of like Kim Jong-un.

Gerry1of1 Make sure your health insurance premiums are paid.  It's not the place, it's the clientele that scares me.

Reasons I never eat at buffets:
Sneeze guards are seen as a challenge rather than a protector.
No, that bastard who just reached his bare hand into the food did NOT wash his hands after his last shit.
Open air service is no way to control holding temperatures.

To me, the value of a buffet is, not to overeat, but to eat a little bit of all the things I like.

Gerry1of1 ah sounds like you haven't taken step one.  First, history. Wife's mother is a BAD cook. All her kids grew up eating bland but barely edible stuff so packages that were hard to mess up were king.  We moved in together and about 2 months in I'd had it.  Hadn't eaten anything except hamburgers, hamburger helper,etc.  I bought what I wanted and flat out said I'm eating this. There is plenty you are welcome to eat it with me, but otherwise you are on your own. She threw a fit, but made her own dinner.  About once or twice a week I'd just make whatever I wanted and let her know I was going to.   In my experience most finicky eaters are not cooks and absolutely hate cooking, eating is purely utilitarian for them so she ate a lot of cereal on those nights. Eventually she got sick of eating cream started trying some things.  Some she likes some she doesn't.  I wouldn't consider her a funny water anymore and she's usually open to trying whatever and actually makes it a point to try things now.  Sill have some you are on your own nights, but for the most part she eats anything I would.
