  •  LOL. Oh, I can't wait too see this fight. (4.00)
    They're going up against one of the most powerful -- and most active -- interest groups working in America today. And starting out by calling them anti-American and gay-loving?

    It's like George W. Bush isn't just determined to touch the third rail of American politics -- he's pulled his pants down and is taking a whiz on it.

    •  Actually (4.00)
      Peeing on an electrified train rail is very, very unlikely to cause electrocution (read: almost impossible).

      What Bush is doing really resembles pulling down his pants and trying to hump the third rail. Now there's an image I'd like to burn out of my brain.

      How much will you lose with Bush's Social Security plan? Click to find out.

      •  Well, no (4.00)
        I can testify that peeing on an electric fence can give you a shock. (Dont ask, I was young and wanted to see if the rumors were true.)

        And, extrapolating from that, the same thing should happen for a third rail on a transit line. Electrolyte-waste in the urine conducts electricity quite well up to the source from where it came. And from there, the body's ion-channel served nerve system takes the electricity down to one's feet.

        Pattern is his who can see beyond shape: Life is his who can tell beyond words.

        You sick bastard. Thank you for providing my nightmares for tonight! :)

    •  I'm *really* sorry for the spelling in that post, (none)
      I'm still laughing too hard.
