I actually have a t-shirt from Toad Suck, Arkansas. Once voted the most embarrassing/unfortunate town names.
I've been by Toad Suck, but never actually to it. It is on the way to Little Rock. It isn't the most fortunate name and is even worse than the name of my home town in Missouri.

A few years ago I heard a story reported to have taken place near Chunky Gal Mountain. I don't remember the story, but I didn't believe it was a real place. It is. It is in North Carolina and based on an Cherokee legend according to what I read.

on the toad licking thing, it seems the digestive system negates any hallucinogens before they can enter the system, this is why any hallucinogenic secretions must be dried, then smoked...

He has a penchant for blaming the first person he sees after an event and he has blamed me and several others for this particular one. I admit that on occasion I have done it just to get him going, but almost every time he has accused me, it was someone else. Lately, he has been getting hammered by several someones it appears. Like most of his contradictory behavior, it is amusing to watch him go on and on about how it doesn't bother him. For a time anyway.

I wonder if it borders on narcissism? Certainly overly concerned about how he is thought of. Definitely he wants to be seen as someone to be reckoned with.

I never paid full attention to the accounts of "toad licking" to follow up on the validity. I just figured that people that interested in being high will indulge in the most dangerous risks, so licking a toad probably wasn't that big a deal to them.

I know there those who claim to know who gives them negative judgits, but that is just blind speculation. There is no way to know. It turns out to be more amusing watching them go on about the judgits than it is to waste time giving any to those people. I occasionally give them if the comments are especially good or especially stupid and I don't have time to comment fully, but for the most part I don't think about them.
Making the givers visible would be fine by me.
I agree. I think it would be good for someone to know I think they're a moron!

BTW, I don't think that anyone use uses them is necessarily a coward. I imagine some are done in response to a post that is just too stupid to waste more an a couple of clicks on.

Jim Ryan, for example.

Cop, Now madam do you realise …. Etc etc, etc …. Ect…

Me, You are an idiot.

Cop You do realise that I should arrest you for speaking like that

Me, OK then, I am sure you can’t arrest me for thinking so I think you are an idiot

not familiar with Urb, but i have seen many people on Topix and other sites that seem far more concerned with the likes or whatever they call them than what they actually post...

my best advice is to ignore them completely use actual words to agree or disagree with a post.

Urban Cowboy. A dyed-in-the-wool creationist who is quite sure he knows everything. Lately he's been arguing with Polymath, a PhD, on entropy on the "Should evolution be taught in high school' thread.

yeah, i just recently clicked on the evolution debate forum for the first time and saw that thread. seemed like a long discussion on math concepts way beyond my paygrade...

let me know if they get back to talking about creationism being taught in schools...

Actually, the entropy debate has been fairly recent. And fairly long. And fairly boring. It Urb's attempt to prove evolution is impossible because of the Second Law of Thermodynamics.{yawn}

Nuts. You are pretty damned quick to throw that "liar" term out there over something that you've seen posted before and is on the ---> very first page of your own book.
Gen 1:11-12 Plants - the third day
Gen 1:14-16 the Sun and moon - the fourth day
Genesis 2;

2 Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.

2 By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. 3 Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

4 This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the Lord God made the earth and the heavens.

5 Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth[a] and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground, 6 but streams[b] came up from the earth and watered the whole surface of the ground.

<quoted text>the point being that the story the bible gave supposedly came from an infallible god or was divinely inspired by that same god.
since the global flood didn't happen, this dipsroves the infallibility of that god or the concept of divine inspiration in the writing of the bible...
Where in the bible does "God" say the world flooded?

grass, herbs, trees...all in verse 12. again, your cult's attempt to create a god failed miserably.
