In talking with Laconic Pup about Minecraft (which he is even more of a newbie than myself in) we were discussing the benefits of harvesting sheep (wool), pigs (pork chops), ducks (eggs), and cows (steaks). It was myself, Inscrutable Half-Breed, Laconic Pup, and ID10T Killer…

It was just wrong.
“We actually didn’t talk a whole lot about social schisms in my conversations with His Holiness,” Mr. Obama said at a press conference in Rome. “In fact, that really was not a topic of conversation.”
Mr. Obama deflected a reporter’s question about the extent of his discussion with the pope on the contraceptive mandate by saying that Francis “actually did not touch in detail” on the subject. The administration has been locked in a lengthy legal and political battle with the U.S. Catholic Church hierarchy over Obamacare and issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage.
The Vatican, however, issued a statement after the meeting saying the president’s discussions with Francis and two other top Vatican officials focused “on questions of particular relevance for the [Catholic] Church in [the United States], such as the exercise of the rights to religious freedom, life and conscientious objection” — issues that have fueled divisions between Mr. Obama and the church.
The president clearly wanted to benefit from the global popularity of the pope.
Well, duh. If the Pope had no chance of boosting his ratings, Obama would never have given him the time of day.
Bullshit. I call bullshit.
Grossman’s pain-level was a 10 on a scale of 1-to-10, Allard said, and yet he fervently answered questions on everything from transgender rights and mandatory sex education to issues facing youth and aging members of the LGBTQ community.
If you can tolerate it, your pain isn’t a ten. Don’t go telling me you are a big tough guy. I had a compound fracture broken slowly… A ten is while it is being broken and you are screaming or in the throes of a cluster migraine. You cannot think. Your brain short-circuits at ten.
Kicked in the nuts hard is a nine. Breathing is hard. I hear gut wounds or appendicitis or things of that nature are 8-10, easy.
After a bone is broken, ok, it hurts bad… Now you are eight or nine. I dealt with that for hours. A bad regular migraine is this level. You can think, even if you do want to puke.
But you don’t hold a debate during a ten. Sorry. Now you’re just a lying sack of crap.
