'MERICA! APPLE PIE! GUNS! FOOTBALL! BEER! TRUCKS! FIREWORKS! EAGLES! FREEDOM! YEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAH!
*cough* Sorry, what I meant to say was IT'S THE FOURTH OF JULY!
Well it's still early morning, at least in 'Merica, so we can't go batshit crazy yet. The point is today is a day of freedom, beer, barbeques, and fireworks. Have fun today, 'Mericans. And to all non-'Mericans: you can go and do whatever it is you do in your country that might be better than sucks compared to 'Merica!
Happy Independence Day, Y'all.
I have a feeling that you helped him with HTML.
So, not only do I have to go through your profile and click the dragon for hours to get every little quote, but now I must also go through Chris's and do the same.
I hope you're happy.
Yeah, he provided me with a blank slate so that I could put the interchanging quotes on my profile (he gave it to me about a year ago; I recently re-discovered it in my notepad, and it's been on my profile for about two weeks or so. Changed the quotes to make it more 'Merican though).
No offense, but fuck you.
... But what did I do?
I have to click through your profile once I'm done with Brad's!
There's only like, six or seven quotes on mine. Even when I switch it back to normal, it'll still be a relatively small amount of quotes (maybe 29 or 30).
30 is not relatively small, Chris.
Compared to Brad's it is.
Oh, and also Ford has one of those on his profile, but you have to refresh the page. Get with the times, Ford!
*grabs at air* I want...
YOU DO NOT GET
Oh, hah, it's the American Dragon. I get it.
'Merica! FUCK YEAH!
In honor of freedom day, here are 10 inspiring quotes by famous Americans.
“Above all, my dick.”
“Walk softly and suck my dick.”
“There’s nothing to fear but my dick.”
“Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for my dick.”
“There is nothing wrong in America that can’t be fixed with my dick.”
“My dick, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.”
“Read my lips: suck my dick.”
“Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them suck my dick?”
“Honest conviction is my courage; my dick is my guide.”
“We will bring the terrorists my dick; or we will bring my dick to the terrorists. Either way my dick will get done."
Careful, if you let your enemies suck your dick, they might bite it off! Or be amazed at it's size...
How did you put that flag background on the left? What sorcery is this???
No, you disgrace! You've used dark HTML magic! What hath Brad wrought?
WOO! Time to wear all these highly American artifacts stolen using a time machine!
Get outta here, Scot.
You racist son of a literal bitch! Are you wearing boots made out of the leather that Teddy Roosevelt's boots would've been made out of if it weren't tailored to fit you when you went back in time? Are you wearing Bruce Springstein's jeans that were fashioned in much the same way!? CAPTAIN AMERICA'S SHIELD!? GENUINE COWBOY HOLDOUT CARDS!? THE HEADBAND OF RAMBO!? THE FIRST AR-15 AND THE FIRST HELL'S ANGELS JACKET!?
This picture alone is more American than you will ever be!... Also, I'm a registered citizen of Kansas, dick!
Cowboy holdout cards, eh? Doesn't sound very genuine to me, but that's just my opinion.
Kansas, eh? How do the wheat fields look like? :P
You wanna look Billy the Kid in the eyes and tell me his cards aren't real? I can take you back there if you want and he'll answer all your questions.
I don't know, I'm on the road most of the time, but my in-laws lI've there, and I get the most contracts from US citizens, so it works out.
...You're way too soft on this.
Also, you might want to add an eagle. Because fuck penguins on Independence Day.
Wow. That's incredibly ignorant. I'm not a penguin, nor did I immigrate to this country in order to suffer prejudice at the hands of those infinitely less American than I am! May Steve devour your greasy racist un-soul!
"I'm not a penguin"
I meant your profile picture. Unless...?
Wow. Woooow. Really!?
I'm a Penguinite! An Avian! There's a distinct set of a billion differences between penguins and Penguinites! You used to know this!
NO FLAPPING! THIS IS A SERIOUS ARGUMENT!
Calm down. He's not the immigration office or anything.
*gasp* THE RETURN OF YOUR BEST PROFILE PICTURE! I HAVE LONG AWAITED THIS DAY!
Show him the door, please.
How many penguins do you have?
I want one....
I don't have any penguins, what are you talking about? These are all photographs of me, and I'm decidedly not a penguin.
Every time, you've been wrong, weed.
Dangit! You waited until I was sleeping to make your post!
I knew I should've posted at 3 in the morning instead of sleeping!
Yeah, yeah, but seriously, let's get weird everyone!
Thank you whoever put an American flag in the background! I tried (and failed) to do that.
Last I checked, there were 13 stripes, not 50.
Yeeeah... Blame whoever put the flag in the background. Mine was a different flag.
It's gray! All gray!
Welp. Sounds enough like "great" to me!
Why does every state celebrate Independence Day? I mean, I live in California, and we never had anything to do with the Revolutionary War. The only states that were involved were the original thirteen.
First of all: Yearly excuse for beer, barbecue, and parades. Why wouldn't you celebrate it?
Second of all: Why does all of France celebrate the destruction of the Bastille and the birth of democracy in their entire country? Only the peasants in that one town tore up the bastille!
I don't drink, I hate barbeques because it requires human interaction, and parades are stupid.
And I don't know anything about French culture. This is America we're talking about!
Because if there was no Independence Day, we'd all be celebrating "British Triumph" day while drinking tea and eating crumpets.
Also, why does everyone here live in California?!
I'm in new jersey
Have you seen Futurama, it wouldn't be that bad. And probably because California is the most populous state in the union. So it's more likely that you'll have someone from here. At one point when I was on this site, I was living in Guam.
Aman's from the opposite coast, I'm in the middle-west, Ayt's from Texas, Steve's an Ire, and Mizal is also in Texas. And Endmaster's undoubtedly in the backwoods of West Virginia.
*stands up* And Chris is in Arizona! *sits back down*
Arizona is basically still California.
A drier California.
And more heat. And no beaches to cool off. Oh, and let's not forget the snakes, scorpions, and spiders. Seriously, fuck those guys.
I have a friend who went to Arizona for a week or two; when she came back she told me that Arizona was awesome. We Texans only have wet heat, unlike you. Arizona's more dry heat.
Tell her to try living here for eight years. It gets old.
Sounds great to me. Oh, by the way, if you want to know what Texas life is like, ask away.
I've lived in both Arizona and Texas. I will take Texas heat any damn day, and I say that not just for my comfort, but because this heat is more dangerous. It will kill you faster.
Yep. I had heat-related illness multiple times throughout my life. I live in Arizona. Also, Texas has actual green plants. Arizona has greenish plants
Uh, PA, though.
Oh, shush all of you.
It's just that I know, like, 4-5 people here from CA.
Im a born Californian
but I was raised in Idaho.
I live in Texas now
You're thinking on a retarded state level. You're a citizen of America, and Independence Day was when America got freedom.
This is a guy who needed the reasons why Sociopathy is a bad thing explained to him.
I still don't think it's a bad thing.
Hannibal Lecter, BBC Sherlock, and other more "Pristine" examples of sociopaths are far from normal, and usually just the writer's excuse to write a character that's disconnected from other people and can do whatever in order to get what they want. Most people with APD act a lot more like, well, antisocial people, and are very grating in social contexts most of the time because they don't think like other people. Either way, if you're going to find an APD person who acts like a fictional character, you're a damned lot more likely to find someone who acts like the balding guy from GTA V and has trouble functioning in most parts of life that don't involve movie moments, because it's a disorder, not a positive personality trait.
As far as "Charming" and "Manipulative" goes, you do realize that, when they do it, they don't usually maintain their charm very well, right? Look at Ted Bundy. He was good at getting girls to ride in a car with him, but he generally couldn't keep up the facade, and then he killed them. The serial killer who went on the Dating Game and won was able to convince a girl to go out with him in that social atmosphere, without even showing his face, but they split after one date because he was he came off as incredibly creepy in a one-on-one social context. Even people who manipulate others for years were usually relying on one bit in particular (Continual, repettitive encouragement, plain bullying, money, persistence, etc.) and weren't (or couldn't) get it to serve to any particular end, rather they did it compulsively because they could, wasting everyone's time, generally hurting other people for no apparent reason, and wounding their own reputations and social lives irreparably whenever they were caught.
It's called a disorder for a reason: People with APD generally don't function very well, certainly not as well as most people without it.
You referred to Trevor as "the balding guy from GTA V", so your opinion is invalid.
I wasn't planning on using fictional characters as an example (well, I know I did then, but that was some time ago). I don't think it's bad in and of itself. They lack empathy and the rest of that emotional stuff (at least more so than most people) which increases their tendency to act out. Still, there are plenty of people with APD that live fairly normal lives and don't participate in negative behavior.
*places hand over chest* I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
To celebrate let's drink, launch fireworks at each other, and if someone loses an eye, let's laugh at them!
The flag was made in China, so you just pledged allegiance to China.
The American flag backgroud is a pretty hilarious touch.
I'm not American, and it's the 5th of July here, but happy 4th of July anyway.
In this moment, I am euphoric. Not because of some phony commie's blessing, but because I am enlightened by my own freedom
My spouse would be able to offer you boundless sympathy in that regard. Apparently working there was a traumatic experience.
I was working too.
P.S. Kroger also sucks. I wish I could get what they pay at wal-mart
It's just the current management at my store. They are constantly giving me tasks and not letting me do my job. My original hiring manager was great though so maybe it'll get better. Still the pay is minimum so there's that.
Good luck to you too.
Happy America day, other gun-loving and burger-eating fucks.
Night was kind of boring for me. Can't even see the fireworks where I'm at.
Aaaaaand now it's not 'Merica day. At least not in Arizona.
I waited for hours yesterday and all i seen was A sparkler, screw oldtown maine!
Rained all night, so no fireworks, but oh well. Happens.
Fireworks went off until midnight.
All I did was experience a small shower of rain, go to WalMart and come back to see a few people attempting to set off firecrackers.
So yeah, nothing much.
Considering people are sharing what they did, I'll let you all know what I did: I stayed up all night on the third, either replaying Mass Effect (in preparation for Mass Effect: Andromeda) or staying on the site. Then I went to bed at like eleven or twelve in the morning and then I woke up at around midnight. So basically I spent all of 'Merica Day sleeping and missed the fireworks. 'Tis a pity.
I think this was the shittiest 4th I've ever experienced. A bunch of guys in the neighborhood had sparklers, but since fireworks are illegal in California, I could barely even sneak good ones from the store. They didn't even go off into the sky!
*points to post right above this one* I think mine was shittier.
Nah, you got to play video games! I stayed outside hoping for booms.
Yeah, but the vidya had clunky combat and a shitty autosave (I died and lost over an hour of work because the game didn't autosave at any of the loading screens). And that's not mentioning the FUCKING MAKO.
This is what I did,
I just liked the fucking renegade actions in 2.
Like throwing the guard out the window in that mission on Illium.
"I have nothing more to say to you." *throws dude out window* "How about goodbye."
*Plane arrives in Tucson, my family drives home. I get on the computer. I see this thread, and realize that my Fourth of July was spent in Ukraine.*
I got really sick in Ukraine too...
