          I just got into this.

          Folks with that little sideways 8?  Sure you can do it and they don't even notice, but umm... contrary to MB it doesn't make you their friend (though it might make you feel better).

          Call it hypocritical all you want, i find the ironic uprate gets more attention where you want it and carries less risk.

          Yes, some people are too dumb to get the nuance, but the chuckles make you feel almost as good as a full blown tantrum (with slamming of doors, stomping of feet, and holding your breath waiting for a reaction).

          I was FP and could say whatever I wanted to.

          Now I realize I can say whatever I want anyway and it only bothers me what people think if I let it.

            but even before I got burned out and took my hiatus, I lost the desire to provide extended commentary.  Mostly it was the realization that I didn't have much to say.  I'm much more into reading and dropping the occasional comment.

            But the reason I find those troll rates so funny is  when he posted that, those people did what they thought was correct.  It was an intentionally inflammatory post from an 'obviously fake username' and they hid it to keep it from setting people off.  then the episode aired and other TU's saved it for the rest of us :)

              Everyone would be doing it.

              I believe in the Church of Baseball. I've tried all the major religions, and most of the minor ones. I've worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan. I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I heard that, I gave Jesus a chance. But it just didn't work out between us. The Lord laid too much guilt on me. I prefer metaphysics to theology. You see, there's no guilt in baseball, and it's never boring... which makes it like sex. There's never been a ballplayer slept with me who didn't have the best year of his career. Making love is like hitting a baseball: you just gotta relax and concentrate. Besides, I'd never sleep with a player hitting under .250... not unless he had a lot of RBIs and was a great glove man up the middle. You see, there's a certain amount of life wisdom I give these boys. I can expand their minds. Sometimes when I've got a ballplayer alone, I'll just read Emily Dickinson or Walt Whitman to him, and the guys are so sweet, they always stay and listen. 'Course, a guy'll listen to anything if he thinks it's foreplay. I make them feel confident, and they make me feel safe, and pretty. 'Course, what I give them lasts a lifetime; what they give me lasts 142 games. Sometimes it seems like a bad trade. But bad trades are part of baseball - now who can forget Frank Robinson for Milt Pappas, for God's sake? It's a long season and you gotta trust it. I've tried 'em all, I really have, and the only church that truly feeds the soul, day in, day out, is the Church of Baseball.

      appearance of Kos on Colbert. It was a good performance.

      I share a birthday with John Lennon and Bo Obama.
