A friend of mine sat on her front steps and solved the Cube once. With a hammer.

-16.6 ºF. I'm starting to feel a little jealous for our little Toller of her fur. I guess it's never so cold that she wouldn't like to take a long walks outside.

Bringing the thread back to its original purpose (when it was called the Post Count thread): We're at 699,529 (for the moment, not including this post) posts - within a day or so of reaching 700,000.

Of course, since the forum continues to become more popular, the time between milestones continues to decrease (the last 3 have been hit less than a year from the previous, and this upcoming one will most certainly be the quickest milestone attained to date):

The UDF (think Baskin-Robbins meets 7-11 for those outside the Tristate) by my school is closing down. This seriously bums me out.

Mastodon and Opeth are touring together this Spring and coming close enough that I can actually go to a show. This is good. Very good. Very, very good.

Just realized that my long hair, beard and second-hand clothes make me look like a leftist. I wonder if I should change my political views to conform my looks.

Well, I never thought of this guy as a leftist (nor a rightist). So I say keep the look and conform your life to Christ.  ;)

If a foreigner, acquired US citizenship, would he be able to join said military?
If they meet all the standards, they can do anything but run for President.

Actually, I believe a foreigner could join up now, and the military would provide a path to citizenship.

That is correct. He doesn't even have to serve 25 years in the Auxilia ;)

You know how the Church frowns upon having a significant other move in with you without getting married. I now know why that reason is, because it simply doesn't work.

An n of one ain't proof.

Keep trying. //:=)

Oh and marriage works all so well . . .

EDIT: I have no idea how personal you mean this. Sorry for the loss of your relationship, if that is what happened. I've been away pushing cars out of snow and catching criminals.

Srsly.

Yeah I know it ain't proof. I'm very idealistic when it comes to marriage, I never accept the reality of it because I don't want to.

My relationship is quickly coming to an end, which maybe a good thing.

It'll all work out for the best. After my last relationship ended, I found someone who I honestly can see a future with. Life is funny sometimes, just keep trying.  :)

Sure! My drill instructor was Filipino, and the military is how he become a citizen.
