    After reading many of the political threads recently here on Cyburbia, and even some non-political threads, I would like to introduce something along the lines of Sam's Law:

    Michaelskis Law:
    As a Cyburbia Forums thread grows longer, the probability that Hillary Clinton or Ted Kennedy's Liver will be mentioned by Michaelskis approaches one.

    Thank you for your time.

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Law breaker.

    Hitler walked into Walmart and saw Hillary Clinton talking about Ted Kennedy's liver.

    Nicely said, you missed out mentioning NASCAR, Canukistan, and James Kunstler.

    I have a law named after me. I can’t find it, but I believe it involves Photoshop

    Jams Kunstler, while lamenting the poor gas mileage of NASCAR vehicles, threatened to move to Canukistan if Senator Ted Kennedy did not issue a proclamation condemning this atrocity (as he put it "an egregious crime against humantiy equalled only by the likes of Hitler, or perhaps Sam Walton"), however, as the Honorable Mr. Kennedy was suffering from liver problems, he instead conveyed the same demand to Senator Hillary Clinton.

    Whew! Why is the ground rumbling? Is that an earthquake I feel?

    All you jerks are wrong. It's all in the definition:

    Michaelskis Law:
    As a Cyburbia Forums thread grows longer, the probability that Hillary Clinton or Ted Kennedy's Liver will be mentioned by Michaelskis approaches one.
    Therefore, that earthquake in K-Zoo you feel is nothing more than lunch's gaseous emissions...




    Perhaps that is why it seems that an earthquake is occurring in Northern Colo. today too.

    I think you've missed an important element. It's not just the quantity of words it's the quality as well. The law should read "The worse Michaelskis fares in a political discussion the probability that Hillary Clinton or Ted Kennedy's liver will be mentioned by him approaches one."

    Well you know...

    Hitler and his mom, Hillary Clinton, were shopping for a NASCAR game at Wal Mart as a get well gift for Ted Kennedy who was recovering in a super secret Canukistany rehab center after the 52nd liver transplant, when they were interrupted by James Kunstler wanting an autograph who mistook Hillary for Candice Bergen from Boston Legal.

    I normally do not like off-the-cuff remarks about the Clintons, but to this one I say:

    Laws

    It occurs to me there are more laws we could discover.....

    The 'Florida' law: the longer a thread, regardless of the subject, the probability that we will learn about an eccentricity of RJ approaches one.

    Any others?

    OK, that’s it. I’m going to challenge you on this, Master of Engrish. Show me just one example that I’m eccentric. Just one. I dare you. I’m normal. Totally and unequivocally normal.

    Wow, that is cool! I didn’t know that they even made those yet. I know someone who has a “Re-elect Elvis” T-shirt and a “Let the Ewoks join the EU” T-shirt.


    So what color is the inside of your fall out shelter?

    They don't make them, but they can be made.

    I'm an independent myself. Ever since I voted for John Andersen for President, couldn't vote for Perot though. Hillary is my centrist of choice, and I'm happy to be able to vote for one of the major parties again (If she runs).

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words. How's this for 'verbiage'? [begin 'The Way We Were' in background]
