On warmer places than Chicago.
Blatantly ripped off from vvvexation (who stole it herself, so it's no big deal. Or something.):

Give me one reason why I'm going to Hell.

As per all memes, feel free to take and share. Enjoy!

Well, it sounds from you last post like you're not doin' so hot. So take a break and come up here! I'll show you around. :) (well, it'll be interesting. I've had a pretty hectic schedule lately, and I'm sure you have too. And I wouldn't be able to give you a place to stay... But if we can work around that, the offer still stands! I'll even through in a free dinner. :) )

Lady, there wasn't exactly a priest (or rabbi) at that wedding. That was a completely secular affair.

Sorry, that last reply was me.

Let's try this again. Those last two replies were by me. (And if this doesn't work, "me" is somebodyelse. :) )

Yes, I said "me is somebodyelse" and it was both logically and grammatically sound. I rock.
thisgirliknow From: thisgirliknow Date: October 26th, 2006 03:20 am (UTC) (Link)
You do rock.

'Cause you tried to make me out to be a thief, thass why. *thbbbthht*

ok, that's got me thinking. In comment systems like lj's or in IM or things like that, it's technically written, but it serves the purpose of speaking, not of published writing. So... is it slander or libel? This is going to bug me. Thanks. ;p
vvvexation From: vvvexation Date: October 24th, 2006 07:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
According to http://www.infoplease.com/ce6/society/A0829656.html and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slander_and_libel , it doesn't depend on whether it's spoken or written so much as on how permanent it is. Publishing in a public forum like this would probably count as libel, though, I'm guessing. But I imagine that you could just lump them both under "defamation" if you wanted to make a case out of it.

Morally, though, it's much simpler; it counts as "bearing false witness." :-P

See, you have to go and look up the answer, don't you? Ruins all the fun... :) Thanks.

See, that's a great lead in for a joke about religious people being simple (I'm about to start reading Dawkins's new book, and have been reading a bunch on Atheism v. Religion lately, so it's on my mind.) but I can't quite phrase it in a way that's not overly vicious. *shrug*

You might have better luck riffing on the fact that the authors of the Bible rounded pi off to 3.
somebodyelse From: somebodyelse Date: October 24th, 2006 07:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
Really? I knew that this was true in ancient history (and even by a few blindingly idiotic people today) but I never knew it occured in the bible.

Frankly, I think the bible has the simplest (and best) moral code I've ever heard of. The solution to any problem is, of course, bears.
vvvexation From: vvvexation Date: October 24th, 2006 09:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
Bears are clearly The Answer; just look at how many boys they tore.

(Never mind that that sounds like an awful lot of little kids to just spontaneously assemble and start mocking someone. I could buy maybe half that many, but even that's a stretch.)

You're going to hell because you like baseball.....

Or at least you are in the world that's in my head :)


On another note, we should attempt to organize a game-type thing. I have friends (don't laugh) that like to play games, and it could be fun. Let me know your feelings on that when you get the chance.
somebodyelse From: somebodyelse Date: October 26th, 2006 12:29 am (UTC) (Link)
Sure. The only caveat is that I am extraordinarily busy. This is the first time I've had a job and work. It's... exciting. Plus I'm moving. Slowly. :) but give me a call, and we'll try to set something up. (I'd give you a call, but I lost my phone a month back, and all the numbers with it.)
From: dexsmadmonkey Date: October 26th, 2006 03:07 am (UTC) (Link)
Well, this game-delicious will most likely have to until next month, around probably mid-month for me as I am also very busy. I will call you when I have a range of times that would be ideal.

Because you claim to have good grammar and spelling but I've found mistakes in this post!

(And I'm sorry I didn't call you back the other day. I called my mom after you and I talked and it turned into a 2 hour fiasco...I do owe you a phone call because new things have flourished in the One Thought Dead Area...if you get what I mean).
somebodyelse From: somebodyelse Date: October 26th, 2006 12:24 am (UTC) (Link)
1) This is hardly a formal paper, so I wasn't at the top of my game. I sowy!

2) What mistakes? There's nothing misspelled (a word which I frequently misspell, because I know it's often misspelled, and therefore don't trust my own judgement on it. How's that for irony?) in the post. The only grammatical mistake I can see is that "Or something." is a fragment. And if you call me on that one, you've got a stick up your *. But I might be missing something, just because I wrote it, and so can't judge it properly.
2a) If it's something on word usage or the like that your HS English teacher taught you, I'm probably going to thwap you for it.

3) Well, if you owe me a call, call me! (Generally anytime after 6:15 your time I'll be out of work or out of class, whichever I was in that day.) I can't wait for all the juicy details. :)

I still waiting for you to tell me what was wrong with this post?
somebodyelse From: somebodyelse Date: October 26th, 2006 07:49 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ok, ignore that question mark. It should be a period. And I don't want to hear anything from the peanut gallery. ;p
From: (Anonymous) Date: October 26th, 2006 08:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
It's more of your responses then your post:

"Well, it sounds from you last post like you're not doin' so hot."

"I'll even through in a free dinner."

"I still waiting for you to tell me what was wrong with this post?"

"2) What mistakes? There's nothing misspelled (a word which I frequently misspell, because I know it's often misspelled, and therefore don't trust my own judgement on it."

And I really shouldn't comment because I'm my own worst editor...but you DID ask why you were going to hell...
3ng1i5hn3rd From: 3ng1i5hn3rd Date: October 26th, 2006 09:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
I think it's safe to assume that the last post was from me...d'oh.
somebodyelse From: somebodyelse Date: October 26th, 2006 09:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
"Well, it sounds from you last post like you're not doin' so hot."
-clearly a typo, but ok.

"I'll even through in a free dinner."
-Ouch.

"I still waiting for you to tell me what was wrong with this post?"
-sheesh! I caught the question mark, but not that. wow. I think that was the result of a rephrasing of the sentence that I didn't do carefully enough.

"2) What mistakes? There's nothing misspelled (a word which I frequently misspell, because I know it's often misspelled, and therefore don't trust my own judgement on it."
...? I'm not seeing what's wrong in that sentence, outside of an awkwardly long aside. I don't have a problem with putting multiple sentences in a parenthesis in the middle of another sentence. But I might be weird, in that respect.

Judgment doesn't have an E in it...ok well it doesn't have 2 E's in it. I just looked it up too just to make sure that I wasn't speaking out of line...

I should say that I've always spelled it that way, to my knowledge. But I'd forgotten that it was non-standard. Besides "dgm" looks terrible!

Also, I'm sorry if the last comment came off as a bit snippy. You do have me on the defensive here. :)
