I haven't seen anything like this in any of the subforums I frequent (if something like this exists, please delete).  Post any random thought you have that you just want to get out there, but doesn't fit well with existing threads and isn't really worth starting a new thread for.

I miss how you could always feel when a TV was on.  I always liked it.  New TVs don't do that.

Huh. Now that I think about it, so do I.

Someone tell Evolution that humanity needs another pair of arms, 'cause two ain't enough.
Mockery of ideas you don't comprehend or understand is the surest mark of unintelligence.

And while you're at it, would you mind giving us a better sense of smell?

Prehensile tail would be really cool and useful.

But the extra pair of arms thing is actually even higher on my wanted list than the tail.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Though it would make wiping a complete bitch.

Anyway, it's somewhat unsettling to think that pop culture as it is now will be considered retro in the very near future. It's a "reminder of my own mortality and how life is fleeting" kind of thing.

On the other hand, I do look forward to the day that "swag", "selfies", "hating on" and hashtags go out of style, and hope against all probability that whatever replaces them isn't quite as obnoxious.

Pay politicians according to how well the economy is doing in their district. Then they'll have a reason to try and help things along, or at least not deliberately screw things up, aside from drumming for votes.

If you look at it logically, cannibalism has great potential to simultaneously solve our overpopulation and food shortage problems.

They would deliberately screw it up alright. Namely, by stimulating the fuck out of it when it's already in the boom part of the boom/bust cycle, thereby setting it up to crash in the most spectacular manner possible in the very near future. Kind of like what Bush did, only even worse.

New idea for legislation: anyone who campaigns to lower the minimum wage is required to live off the minimum wage for no fewer than thirty days. The same requirement applies for anyone seeking to lower benefits for veterans, the elderly, low-income families, etc.

Lately, I've been examining the utter pile of technical dog feces that was Gettysburg: Armored Warfare and thinking about a fantasy setting with similar concepts. Really, the visual aspect of the game design was amazing.

So I thought, the Civil War with rayguns and pulp science fiction elements. A cabal of scientists in Europe discovers the secrets of the aetheric fuel of Phlogiston and uses it to create wondrous machines in 1800, discoveries copied on the other side of the Atlantic ocean. Thus, by the time the local tensions break out, the Civil War is fought with the machines of your grandfather's pulp mags.

The standard-issue Union longarm is the Springfield model 1861 Ray Flinger, a powerful energy weapon that flings phlogiston bolts at high speeds towards a target. However, it's lack of accuracy makes it a matter of luck to hit anything beyond 600 yards.
 
On the Confederate side, the Sharps Wave Rifle is far more accurate with it's focused ray of contained energetic aether that will literally send anything it hits flying apart into it's component molecules. However, mechanical failures will result in the same happening to the user and anybody in the radius of the detonation.

Stolen from imgur:

If the Virgin Mary gave birth to Jesus, and Jesus is the Lamb of God...

Does that mean Mary had a little lamb?

That joke is so funny that it needs two thumbs up.

Unfortunately, the only such picture is from this Mountain gardener. So here, two green thumbs up for you Sirius:
