My post wasn't directed at any particular individual. I'm not without sin in this regard myself.

Jesus came across an adulteress crouching in the corner with a crowd around her, preparing to stone her to death. He placed himself between the woman & the group, and said to them "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone." Suddenly a woman at the back of the crowd chucked a stone, hitting the harlot directly in the face. When Jesus looked over to see who had thrown that rock, he sighed loudly and said "Damn it Mom! Sometimes you really piss me off."

Ha! That's one of my all-time favorite Jesus jokes!
I'm also fond of the one where Jesus takes over watching the Pearly Gates so St. Peter can go take a dump. An old man approaches and says he's looking for his son. "Can you describe him?" asks Jesus. "Well, he's got some very identifiable marks on his body. . . He's got nail holes in his hands and nail holes in his feet . . ." "Dad!" exclaims Jesus, "It's me!" To which the old man replies puzzledly, "You're Pinnochio?"

I asked you to clarify as to which of those dates would suffice for you, and your response was to claim running for President is simply running for President and anybody should know when that begins. You then proceeded to call me names, insult my intelligence and accuse me of being mentally ill.

What part of that am I misinterpreting?


Bump'd for Bland.

Bumped why?
Are you having as much trouble understanding the concept of "I am through with you" as you did with the whole "running for president" thing?

Because I would like an answer.



This isn't about that bet, rather it is about your bigoted comments and baseless accusations.

Perhaps someone else can explain what I "misinterpreted" in that post so you can then copy their words...

By continuing to respond to me, it appears that you are the one who is as confused by "I am through with you" as you were confused about the whole "running for Prez" thing. Part of being a mature adult is admitting when one is wrong...which may explain why you are having such a difficult time doing so.

Give it up. I said am through with you regarding that bet.
Are you trying to beat Roy for title of Densest Daily Page Poster or what?

At first you said that, but then you changed your mind and edited your message to make it clear it was more than just that bet. And as I just said, this is no longer about the wager you were putting forth - rather it is about your bigoted remarks and baseless accusations.

Pretty simple question actually - You mentioned at least three different events, which happen at three different times, that would show someone is running for President. All I was asking is which of those three would suffice for the purposes of your bet. I wasn't arguing about the definition of "Running for Prez" at all, just wanting to know the terms of the bet.

Starting to appear that this whole wager idea was simply you (once again) copying someone else's words while having no idea what was actually being discussed, and thus you got angry&pouty when pressed for the details.

Dear lord just stop embarrassing yourself.

I edited my comment above to be snarkier. The link provides the context which makes clear I was talking about the bet.

That you can't let this go says way more about your maturity or lack thereof than mine, btw.

Also, just out of curiosity......

Why the fuck did you post this in this thread?
It's okay if you don't want to answer. I'll just assume the reason is extremely stupid.

Which comment(s) do you mean by "this"?

And I ain't embarrassed by anything I've said in this thread. Which is why it doesn't trouble me at all to answer questions and clarify my remarks if need be...
