    From Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary:

    cogent 1. having power to compel or constrain

    Sounds fine to me. You were saying?

    How mucn of the word “expand” do I have to explain to you?

    I remember seeing a new subdivision in Colorado Springs named something like Pleasant Valley. I looked it up on a USGS survey map. It was originally called Rattlesnake Gulch.

    basically — I just googled wanglerbar and the only thing that came up is a watering hole in Katy, Texas. I congratulate you on inventing a totally new tool and a totally new name for it. Tangentially, the Wrangler Bar is “the only Wild West saloon in Bahrain.” Really.

    As an exercise, I took the 2000 vote totals and figured out what it took to win the Electoral College vote (50%+1 in the small states, zero in the large states.) It is theoretically possible to win with 27% of the vote. Extremely unlikely, but possible.

    Critical thinking when you haven’t anything to think with results in bumper stickers.

    the opposite of infantry is adultery.

    When I was a kid, our phone number was 3 and the phone didn’t have a dial. No kidding.

    Redkaycei Repoc — That supposed Bush quote (the Constitution is just a goddamned piece of paper) was published by exactly one source, Capitol Hill Blue. The author, Doug Thompson, has withdrawn his claim. (http://www.factcheck.org/2007/12/bush-the-constitution-a-goddamned-piece-of-paper/) Factcheck.org makes it plain that Thompson eats his words to the exclusion of almost anything else in his diet. I know you will continue to use this Bush “quote”, but now you know the truth.

    @Peabody-Martini (way up above)
    “Prior to the Social Security act passing in the 1930s the two main causes of death for the elderly were hypothermia and starvation.”
    How curious. I just went to the CDC’s table, “Leading Causes of Death, 1900-1998” (http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/dvs/lead1900_98.pdf)
    Neither hypothermia nor starvation, nor anything that could serve as a surrogate for hypothermia or starvation, showed up between 1900 and 1935, when the Social Security Act was passed. Nor have they showed up since. Pneumonia and influenza led for three or four years around 1918 — remember the Spanish Flu — but for most years heart disease was the number one killer. Where do you get your data?
