That makes perfect sense. Because as we all know, to do the Time Warp it's just a jump to the left...

Wait... So, these time travelers have the resources to travel time, but not to arrive far enough away to keep their destination from getting hit by aftershocks? Sure, why not.

I think the OP might be saying that earthquakes are caused by time travelers. I think.

I have no idea what he's trying to say, but then, English is not my first language...Those mostrously long sentences of gibberish quite literally make my eyes hurt,though."Punctuation,Moterf****r, do you know it??"

English IS my first language, and I still can't make head or tail of this. Nor, I suspect, do I want to.

Is Bran Donkeys a schizophrenic? Because at the rate he's going, his next post will rival Time Cube...
Why must Americans be like this? Even the ones who aren't conservative fundies are still crazy. There is truly no escape from the madness.

Is your name Headache?
Because you just took one, demonstrably schizophrenic post and used it as an indictment against all Americans.
PROTIP: Anti-American Fundies are still Fundies.

OK, but what's "cousing" your total lack of spelling & grammatical skills?
3/1/2012 7:42:50 AM
Insane word salad: when you absolutely, positively can not stand to subscribe to the easily explained and well supported theories of modern science.
3/1/2012 8:02:01 AM
No, I am not Headache, nor do I like the man.
But in any case, this isn't just one isolated incident. This is consistent. The majority of people quoted here are American, in a way that is disproportionate to their actual population. If it weren't so endemic I wouldn't be going on about it. When was the last time a politician, not just some random person with an Internet connection, from outside the US got quoted here? (And if you mention ministers of Islamic theocracies, that just proves my point.)

You ask "Why must Americans be like this?"
I've always thought the following Isaac Asimov quotation went someway to answering your question:-
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov

You want a crazy non-American politician spouting lunatic bullshit in the public sphere? I give you Nadine Dorries
British MP from Bedfordshire, accusing humanists of being in love with infanticide (again
(Edited to change "pubic" to "public". I don't want to even typo allude to Nadine's pubic sphere).

Even the ones who aren't conservative fundies are still crazy.
This is why you're being compared to headache, Rizzo. That's a mighty broad brush you've decided to tar an entire nation with.
As for non american's quoted here, there's Garvan Ellison. Roman Catholics in europe have been quoted several times recently, and if you follow the link to the source, a British and a Brazilian person are also indigo loonies.
It's nothing to do with nationality. It's everything to do with being a motherfucking loon.

This is one of those programs designed to write Postmodern essays, isn't it? It's just been retooled to write about time travel and earthquakes.
3/1/2012 12:20:25 PM
Rizzo, all it is, is that this is an American site, founded, run and mostly frequented by Americans, who aren't as a rule especially interested in other countries politics (and why should they be). You want to redress the balance, go find and submit batshit quotes by Nick Griffin, Jean-Marie le Pen, Pauline Hanson, Silvio Berlusconi, Vladimir Putin, various Kims, any number of insane frummers in the Knesset, Christoph Blocher, et cetera, et cetera.
3/1/2012 12:27:50 PM
@ Brendan Rizzo
The reason you see so many Americans in here is because America is a very large country. You can't just look at the total number of lunatics, but also the ratio of lunatics per capita.
I'm sure there are plenty of conspiracy nuts in non-English speaking countries. Except that most of the people on this site probably don't know how to read Chinese or Spanish or whatnot, so they don't visit places where those are the lingua franca.

Well, all I can say is there ought be laws and rules passed by Congress to regulate this time travel business immediately. We can't let this anarchic state of affairs continue like this.
I'm writing my Congressman about this. He's a Republican. He'll know what to do.
3/1/2012 8:41:25 PM
I just want to know what a "couse" is. I figure when that is defined I may have the key to deciphering this puzzle of words.
3/2/2012 4:06:54 PM
Try writing better so i might be able to comprehend what you are saying. You might be saying something about time travel, but your prose is so awful that it might as well be about roman chariot racing.
