Naw, she has a sense of humor, look who she married! You can question her taste in men, but not her sense of humor.

Mine is both thinning and turning gray. I've stopped counting and started naming my hair ... oh hell, there goes Bob! And he wasn't even gray yet. Poor Bob, he went before ...oh crap, Joe just left! Damn combs anyway!

It's honestly very hard discussing things with people who are completely uneducated.

You are saying that because one thing (mammoths) are relatively recent (8000 years ago) that some other thing (dinosaurs) therefore can't be older.

For example, the house across the street just got build last summer. Therefore there's no way that the Pyramids in Egypt are older than 200 years. That's just ridiculous.

My friend just finished writing his first novel. Therefore the Bible can't be any older than 100 years.

A woman downtown just had a baby yesterday, therefore the idea that anyone is 50 years old is just make believe.

Are you beginning to see why we get so frustrated dealing with you ignorant POSs

Carbon dating is used to determine the age of biological artifacts up to 50,000 years old. This technique is widely used on recent artifacts, but teachers should note that this technique will not work on older fossils (like those of the dinosaurs which are over 65 million years old). This technique is not restricted to bones; it can also be used on cloth, wood and plant fibers. Carbon-14 dating has been used successfully on the Dead Sea Scrolls, Minoan ruins and tombs of the pharohs among other things.

They are stupid and they stink. McGreevy and Corzine ring any bells? They made my taxes go through the roof. Democrat "Douche-Baggers" are so self delusional and gullible..They are blind in one eye and can't see out of the other. Liberal stinking public union teachers made our kids 25th in math and science. You want me to go on, moron.

Emily Sue passed away and Bubba called 911. The 911 operator told Bubba that
she would send someone out right away.

"Where do you live?" asked the operator.

Bubba replied, "At the end of Eucalyptus Drive."

The operator asked, "Can you spell that for me?"

There was a long pause and finally Bubba said, "How 'bout if I drag her over
to Oak Street and you pick her up there?"

Obama has lowered taxes, Reagan raised them. Math scores for 4th and 8th graders have been increasing for decades. Quit believing what you read in mass emails.

Hah! Proof that you are going to hell. Well maybe not, even God made mistakes sometimes. Remember how God sent the bears down to kill the kids who teased Elisha about being an old baldy? He did not do this because they dissed the Sha man, he did this because it showed his error in creating Eli's hair. And he may be coming on a Honda, Honda, but what looks like a white helmet is merely his skull.

No, McGreevy and Corzine do not ring any bells? Your location is hidden. These are not politicians local to my area. So, if you want to reference a SPECIFIC injustice that you suffered at the hands of these two individuals, do so. Otherwise, this is just you ranting and raving about the boogie man in the closet.

Give us a rough estimate of how much you make a year. Then tell us how much your taxes went up for it to be considered "through the roof". What were your taxes like 10 years ago? 20 years ago? What is that money being spent on?

Does your state high a higher income tax or a higher property tax? Do you have a sales tax? Has it gone up?

Let's get SPECIFIC. If you HONESTLY believe what you are saying, you'll be willing to cite SPECIFIC examples.

Generalities are useless.

As for why kids are doing poorly in science, it's rather disingenuous to blame the "liberals" when it's the conservatives who've come out with literal legislation to put an end to teaching science in schools.

You really think kids get ahead in science by being taught Creationism? Really?
