"Does this dress make me look illiterate?"
Okay I'm going to lay things down here, not as a moderator, not as staff, but as a long time member of this site.
Things have changed. Fact.
Does that mean the site has to be worse off because of it? Hell no.
People are complaining that they don't get any quality posts anymore, they point to the new staff, they point to the new changes. Let me tell you this: There are less quality posts because people are posting less quality posts. Why is this? You might ask. I like to think that it's because the members who would normally be posting funny/original/thought provoking things are instead spending their time posting complaints. You don't have to look very far, just open amirite and look at the POTD, I can guarantee that no matter what it is someone will have complained about it.
The POTD is a year or two old? People complain that the mods are trying to make amirite look good by putting up old popular things.
POTD is too new? Complaints that a POTD should have proven itself.
POTD is a joke? Complaints that you can't vote yes or no on it.
POTD is too serious? People complain that they used to be funny and witty.
Stop seeing the bad and start making the good. It is possible.
Dude! Olympus Mons!
The world isn't fair. I thought everyone knew that?
maybe youre secretly a waiter
Then sometimes people are blind
I would never be able to yell at my dog. If he messes up, the worst he'll get from me is "Awwwwwww, who's so bad? Ohmygod I didn't mean that, I'm so sorry." And then I'll give him a treat or something to make up for it. He's surprisingly well disciplined, considering.
Spiders have so many legs and eyes, and the fangs. People also won't treat you like like you're crazy if you shoot a zombie with a gun. Use it on a spider and suddenly it's "over the top" and "unnecessary".
I'd probably lose being that I'm skinny as hell and don't know anything about wrestling. I suppose I know a little about mud so maybe that'd be my advantage.
Wait, I'm confused. I remember there being a lot of jokes on this site that weren't exactly things that you agreed or disagreed on but everyone's ragging on this one?
If it's suppose to be 4 then you should make it 4. Even if you have to bullshit your way there.
I hear making the font on periods does wonders but you might want to look elsewhere for advice if you're looking for that.
It's basically where we let minorities into colleges they don't deserve to be in and give them jobs they aren't qualified for because our ancestors from 200 years ago were mean to their ancestors from 200 years ago. Oh, and in the college area of affirmative action, it shouldn't come as a major shock that many of the students admitted under affirmative action get horrible grades and often flunk out.
... But it's all for equality, right? Because that's what equality is, isn't it? Giving one group priority over another group. Affirmative action goes against the very idea that the color of your skin doesn't matter. It goes against the very fucking idea of equality.
"What happened here?" I grunted, flicking away my cigarette and surveying the scene. Bodies. Three of them. Sprawled out on the wet pavement in front of a seedy-looking drugstore. From the corner of my eye I noted the name, lkro's Pub, flickering from a faded neon sign. "Doesn't look good Stories" said Daniels, looking up from his notepad briefly to address me. "Murders, all three of em". Stepping closer to the recently deceased I made note of their post numbers "These aren't new posts Daniels, week olds all of them." It wasn't often we had trouble from the Just in gang, and never this close to the Home page. I pulled my collar up tighter against the rain, and dug into my pocket for a new cigarette "We might have trouble Daniels", I muttered, lighting up a cigarette and pausing to inhale deeply. "Did you notice these were all Just in pagers?". "I did" Daniels replied, his brow creasing, "Wouldn't have expected it from them" Wind filled the street, whipping up a frenzy of trash and newspapers. Suddenly I spotted something, a marking on one of the victims foreheads. Pushing aside a strand of hair the outline of a trollface became clear. I inhaled quickly "We've got ourselves a troll"
I have a great story for this! But we can't discuss it right now... Meet me here in exactly three days.
If everyone walks across a bridge and I jump off it does that make me successful?
