    I believe that I'm irresistible to women.

    Who knew the entire planet was filled with gay women? I mean, what other reason could there be that they don't adore me?

    Well, some of them worked for companies contracted by the government, but not all. Independent universities have also produced findings that agree with the NIST's report, and some of them exist outside the US.

    I do know where you're coming from, as it is a common talking point among the CT fraternity, but not all research was paid for by a government that had (according the CTist's) an interest in the manipulation of the findings. They use it as a tactic to poison the well by inferring that all research paid for by the government is subject to government influence, but that's not the case in this example as the findings have been corroborated independently.

    There are also enormous logistical and logic problems with the CTist's claims before we even address the mechanics of the collapses.

    You know that look women give you when they really want to have sex with you?



    Yeah. Me neither.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Just exactly how has our government protected us from terrorist acts by spying on us?

    The Russians told the U.S. Government about the Tsarneyev brothers and we ignored the warning. Think how many lives and limbs would have been saved if the government would have decided to spy on the Tsarneyev brothers instead of my phone call to Dominoes Pizza.

    The wife and accomplice of the San Bernardino shooter lied on her Finance visa application, providing a false address. Did the government decide to investigate her?

    This crap of "we need to be allowed to spy on you for your own good" is a bunch of crap.

    Is that kooky enough for you?
    Your Domino's pizza call is highly suspicious! And still is;

    Domino theory of Commieism
    And Pizza gate den of perverts

    See what I mean?

    I am a kook when someone when someone thinks I don't know anything because I don't have a degree. They laugh and then lose.

    I'm a kook in all things political to my youngest Sanders voter daughter.

    I'm a kook to my exes because I made them my exes.

    I'm a kook to this annoying Toyota salesman because I told him his truck was last re-designed in 2007 and only has 310 horse-power. Pro-tip.... don't shop trucks from your office phone because once their caller ID scoops you up they will bug the $#@! out of you. His manager gets a call after his next call.

    I'm a kook to Crepitus here because he's a kookier kook than me.

    I'm a kook in public bathrooms because I refuse to touch the door handle without a paper towel between me and the germs there.

    I know metal. When heated enough, and they were, beams weaken. With 50 stories above the weak point there was no way they could support them. So, down they came.

    I knew it when it happened. No government had to tell me. Every metal worker i know knew it at the time.

    The puffs you saw was the air being compressed and blown outward.
