The real question here is why not? Do we need a reason to promote the stuggle of LGBTQIA peoples? We should use every opportunity, no matter how frivolous, to advocate for an oppressed minority. Trans Rights!

Always a difficult question, to limit the countless one has seen to just one. I guess I could cop out and just list the great shorts compilations that have been put out, such as Robot Carnival, Neo Tokyo, Short Peace, or Memories. However, that wouldn't be honest: very few of the shorts individually...

Perhaps I'm mistaken, but I was under the impression from bills in years past that resolutions without mandating language and the sole purpose of creating a committee were not allowed? :?

Initially, 8673. Then, all sorts of numbers. Nothing worked until I clicked on one of the preset number buttons and manually edited the URL from there.

Metal should definitely never be banned. There will always be those puritanical religious groups that go out of their way to cherrypick titles, lyrics, satanic themes, and certain subgenres in order to illustrate a demon that has to be addressed. That is a gross misrepresentation of the totality of ...

Almost everything else you said was either wrong, or based on a faulty assumption.

This is a thread for discussing stats that, in general, don't behave anything like they should, due to either design flaws in the stat engine itself or ignorance by issue editors about what words mean.

Not that it conflicts with your point, but you're better off looking at an aggregate of polls , rather than just one. Otherwise, you're no better off than the politician that likes to cherrypick statistics to suit them. Trump himself loves the stray Rasmussen poll that paints a much rosier favorable...
