How the hell can anyone speak Spanish without being able to read or write it?

|1 day 16 hours ago||huh||
the first thing i thought was "hey those aren't baby rugs" but now that i know he's asian i guess i'm the one that was being racist.
disclaimer: all of my asian friends in high school insisted that "oriental" was a description of rugs, and therefore inappropriate as a description of humans.

Anybody younger than that catch the reference here? I've never actually seen the show.
|2 days 14 hours ago||From a song by Rocko||
It's U-O-E-N-O, and "UOENO it" sounds like "you don't even know it". I think that's all. (Edit: I had no idea why the guy brought it up until I watched the Countess vine again...)

...are not actually in the OP?
Edit: I see.

People from the Midwest make fun of New Jersey reflexively. It's ok. We don't know anything about it except that we liked your delis when we drove through on the way to NYC once, and we think that you have a lot of landfills there for some reason vaguely associated with the mafia. Also you are a mecca of embarrassing reality tv, and the Jersey Shore looked kind of gross in that one episode of Grounded for Life.
|3 days 6 hours ago||Did the appraiser find something wrong?||
If not, maybe you should pay for an appraisal or two to see what it's actually worth instead of trusting your realtor (and then fire him/her if the appraisals are consistently off).
Disclaimer: I'm a big fan of firing realtors.

How many years until they declassify and auction off Al's game plans? I wanna bid.
|4 days 11 hours ago||Thanks||
So the 0 doesn't mean anything?
|4 days 14 hours ago||Yes||
But wtf does it mean? I'm all for updates from non-revenue sports, but you'd think the people who find it important enough to post stuff like this would want everybody to be able to understand what happened at a basic level.

|6 days 6 hours ago||it's not all bad||
From 2004-2008, I rented two different 550-600 sqft 1 bdrm places with one parking spot for around $700, both of which allowed me to have a dog. One was on Mary St. and the other was at Main and Hill. The maintenance man was a little sketchy, but the places were very livable. (Of course the landlord currently has no availabilities.)
|1 week 1 day ago||Adding this to Franklin's||
Adding this to Franklin's public 'Nicky Satan' slip, SEC coaches must casually refer to Saban as the devil amongst themselves with some regularity. I like it.
|1 week 3 days ago||A bunch of football players||
A bunch of football players have been riding around campus on scooters for months. It started maybe a month before Taylor said something to the media about not riding the twosie anymore. I think I asked if anybody knew where they'd all gotten them here at least once but I never got a response.
|1 week 5 days ago||So all of you think violating||
So all of you think violating the state's monopoly on taxing stupidity through lotteries is wrong? Bizarre.

Michigan did win the club national championship this year.
|2 weeks 1 hour ago||so neither of you knows what||
so neither of you knows what an illegal numbers ring is either, eh?
if i thought TP were remotely as self-aware about why he was taking the money as webber seems to have been, i'd be much more impressed by him.
|2 weeks 1 hour ago||i'd be pleased not to talk to you about it, o high and mighty||
I don't actually care if he personally did great harm to the university. I think "student-athletes" should routinely go out of their way to do great harm to their universities, who are continually shamelessly exploiting them.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Accepting money from a guy||
Accepting money from a guy running an illegal numbers ring is only wrong if you know that's what he's doing (and if it's actually wrong to run an illegal numbers ring, but since I don't know what that is, I can't really say). Did Webber know where the guy was getting the money? I assume you'd disavow the suggestion that you don't believe in freedom of association if I made it an issue.
Perjuring yourself in federal court might only be wrong if you're committing perjury to avoid punishment for something that's actually immoral. What was he committing perjury to avoid punishment for? If he was committing perjury to help Martin avoid punishment, then again it would depend on what an illegal numbers ring is. But if he was committing perjury to avoid punishment for getting compensated for his work, then it doesn't seem obviously wrong to me.
But I'm probably making a mistake trying to continue a conversation with somebody who thinks that whether or not the NCAA is exploitative is debatable.
|2 weeks 2 days ago||I only know the basics of the situation||
But it's not obvious to me that Webber did anything wrong. The NCAA regime is obviously, illegally, exploitatively monopolistic. The O'Bannon case is about to make that official. We can't debate the morality of undermining a corrupt system (because the mods don't think we're mature enough); I'm just registering an opposing view here.
|3 weeks 7 hours ago||your summary sounds so much||
your summary sounds so much less boring than what i feel like i slept through...
|3 weeks 15 hours ago||I'm not sure if I've ever managed to stay awake through Dogville||
but from what I remember (and what I can extrapolate in light of your comment), I'm not sure it's actually too harsh. The NCAA's treatment of athletes is really fucked up.
|3 weeks 17 hours ago||can somebody parse this for me?||
"Teams have the most deviation from their season average in week one (11.9 points) but the low point has a deviation within 1 point (11.0) that occurs during week one."
the low point of what? and i just have no idea what "that occurs during week one" is modifying. it's been a lot of years since waltzing through stat 350.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||You should at least be consistent||
Is your impression from the preponderance of what you've read (which, if it wasn't on the internet, was probably from some collection of sources, at least some of which you could presumably list) or from conversations with friends or coworkers? What's the point of being cagey? I don't get why anyone would claim to have heard something and then pretend to be unable to give an idea of their sources unless they were just looking to be treated as though they were important. Feel free to enlighten me here, though.

I thought that allegation had no place here, but now that I've read about the DUI and the argument, I think it's relevant information. Here's a link:

That's true vacuously, you see, because you raised no extremely serious issues. Read a book.
