    I am not demanding nor requesting that you shut your trap. I am noting that you are incorrigibly and impersuadably convinced that all or most of the denizens of RPF are 1. Regular listeners of conservative talk radio and the Republican Party 1^. Acolytes, nay, slavish devotees of conservative talk radio and the Republican Party 2. Total ignoramuses of the Secret Truths regarding banking into which you yourself have been initiated 2^. Total morons and hopeless idiots in toto I am of the opinion that none of these assertions are correct. But, as I say, you are impermeable and immovable on them, and so the only solution is to simply ignore your bizarro-grammatical interjections (which is easy, because due to your bold declaration of independence from grammatical conformity, they are impenetrable anyway). Which is what all of RPF does 90 and upwards percent of the time, I guarantee you! You deserve better than that, but it is what it is.

    This looks like a Very Serious work of art. Also, doubtless, Important(TM). Modern art (in general) is engaged in a protracted campaign of sorts of degradation and destruction. It is retrograde. It's as if it sets out to humiliate us, to make us question our taste (and perhaps our sanity). "Well, if everyone says this is a masterpiece, I'd better try to appreciate it, too. Let me gaze at it intently and ponder it for a while, and then, although I'm not a good enough self-delusionist to weep at its beauty, I can at least nod my head at its profundity." Modern classical music has been destroyed by a literal protracted campaign by the CIA. ( http://theduran.com/cia-ruin-classical-music-masses/ ) Modern-anything is almost universally bad, in almost every field, and getting worse.

    They should defend it, sure, great, but under a Constructionist view, they cannot very well violate it. It does not apply to them. The Constitution is an EULA restricting the actions of one institution: the Federal Government. Of course, like all EULAs, the user it's supposedly "binding" to only listen to the CD with an attitude of upmost respect, only in a sound-proof environment, not criticize nor divulge any proprietary musical chords encountered, never, ever upload to torrent, and be prepared to turn over any first-born children or (in lieu of that) bodily organs to the company of party the first, hereafter known as Your Massa, that user is completely ignoring the EULA. He long ago tore it off and threw it away! He does not even consider us, We the People, to be his Massa! Scandalous, yes? The audacity! Perhaps via the Associative Property it could come to be relevant to county sheriffs in very particular cases, such as cooperating with Federal agents in certain operations. If the action were unconstitutional, the sheriff could refuse to cooperate. But that is an edge case. Sounds like your answers were: Begging: You're not going to reply to that. Vandalism: Crack down.

    The post was worthless. Discouraging worthless posts and encouraging worthwhile ones is the purpose of the reputation system. Thank you. The rep worked like a charm. Having you, Zippyjuan, and satirical ("opposite day") accounts like JamesIV and TheTexan criticize my work as worthless and stupid is some of the best endorsement I could get. I actually thought long ago that you personally, Hank, might actually like my creation and give me a bravo or two when it was released. That it might bring a smile to your face and be a little beam of light on the existence you otherwise see as so dreary and miserable. But your brain is too addled to understand it. Ahh, well. Great. Please feel free to change the title in your head to whatever you deem more appropriate. Do people still have mullets? I haven't seen one in quite a while.

    Oh, typically it would be 220 or nothing, absolutely. But you never know what those good old boys might have rigged up there in Alabama -- it's Alabama, after all! ;-) Again, it depends how "finished" is finished. Is "finished" a port-a-potty, a used sink, one outlet, and a lot of extension cords? If so, then maybe it would only be a few hundred dollars! Just depends on how nice you want it to look, what you're willing to put up with, etc. Converting a shed is not the only way, BTW. Hopefully that is obvious but just wanted to point it out. You could, for example, renovate a cheap mobile home. Converting things that were not built to be houses (such as sheds, storage containers) into houses can end up being a lot more trouble than it seemed like on paper. Whereas a mobile home was at least built to be a house. You also could start from scratch! Design whatever you want. That can be really fun.

    Personally, no. Not needed. Though, it totally depends on the site. Depends how "finished" is finished. Could easily be more than the rest of it combined ($15K). But, if you do it all yourself... it could still be $10K, and a lot of time and work (but a lot of fun!). Does the lot have 240V and water hookups?

    Whenever you are confronted by someone who wishes to explain their beliefs to you – their philosophical system, the type of government they favor, their preferred social arrangements, and so on – there are a few questions that are always of tremendous value to ask: “Is what you propose an end, or is it a means? If it is a means, then what end is it a means to? If it is an end, what are its inherent benefits in and of itself, apart from those of any other end?” This will almost certainly throw anyone you ask off their guard, because most people pay precious little attention to these big-picture questions. They become so focused on the details of their favored system that they lose sight of them; and yet they are critical and must be answered if we are to avoid grave, even civilization-threatening mistakes. This is especially important when we consider that Whigism – which is the root of modern democracy – suffers from a persistent inability to distinguish between means and ends. One may see evidence of this in many of its failures. For example, its confusion over whether technology, hard work, and money represent a means or an end (it all too consistently operates as if they are the latter rather than the former), has resulted in much of the aesthetic, cultural, and spiritual ugliness of Modernity. It has meant that modernity never came up with a solid idea of the Good Life, as ancients such as Cicero did (the “American Dream” is far too vague, and doesn’t sufficiently clear up the means vs. ends confusion, to be truly useful as one). It has led to a society full of ambition with no goal – of people who, as a great modern novel put it, live lives of “working jobs we hate so we can buy junk we don’t need”. We have wrecked our families, let our children be raised by strangers or by the television set (if we have any at all), destroyed femininity in all its comfort and glory, become atomized and deracinated to the point that we hardly know our neighbors, work soul-crushing jobs as cogs in gigantic corporate machines, and, worst of all, are miserable – is this an end that anyone could desire? Could this be any sane person’s definition of the Good Life? Certainly not. Why has it happened, then? Because we have gotten so lost in the pursuit of something that we have forgotten what we were pursuing in the first place. Thus, if someone wanted to convince me to support a system that they claimed was a means, they would then have to convince me that it would reliably produce the promised ends. And if they wanted to convince me to support a certain end, they would then have to convince me that this end had inherent benefits. (Within the concept of “benefit”, as used here, we must also include the lack of disastrous, and presumably unintended and unforecasted, ill effects.) Whoever wished to do either (or both) of these things would have to present evidence that squared with the reality that I observe in the world; any evidence that visibly does not match observable reality must be dismissed as false. That is because reality – not our hopes, plans, wishes, dreams, or pet theories – is final. Let us start by considering a test case: the issue of ethnic diversity. Is it a means, or is it an end? If it is a means, what are the ends, and do our observations of the world around us indicate that it is actually producing those ends? If it is an end, then what are its inherent benefits, and do our observations of the world around us indicate that those benefits are actually accruing? Does what we observe in reality around us square with what we were promised by those who supported increased diversity, without any appreciable amount of unintended bad consequences? My own observation of reality tells me this: I see no end to which increased diversity is acting as an effective means except for increasing the power of leftist political parties who want the guaranteed votes provided by the importation of millions of dirt-poor immigrants,...

    New and "improved" indeed. I don't disagree with you, but I think staying away from all of them is the best and wisest course. Instead of converting your tabernacle into a makeshift science lab, why not just go lift some weights? Both will make you feel better. I understand your experience has been different than mine, but I think that if you were giving advice to a youngster, you would probably say the same. You wouldn't actually advise a 12-year-old: "Hey, you should start doing heroin. In fact, here, have some."

    I strongly question the wisdom of making oneself into a chemistry experiment. Of course, the majority of the people one encounters out and about are walking chemistry experiments of one sort or another. Anti-depressants, stimulants, Ritalin,.... on and on nowadays. Not a good idea! The body and mind are all connected and extremely complex. We do not know the full effects of any of these adventuresome chemistry experiments people choose to perform inside their own bodies. :eek: http://blog.dilbert.com/post/103051099501/body-and-brain "Prescription meds change your body too, often in substantial ways. When your body changes, your mind follows. The prescription meds says that very thing right on the warning label. Many of them even warn against suicidal thoughts. "So if you think prescription meds don’t CAUSE thoughts, you are not current with modern science. A person on prescription meds is essentially a chemical cyborg – part human, part science experiment."

    Nope. Putting your own blather inside a quotation with my name attached is a lie. If you want to give your opinion as to something I said, put it as part of your own post BELOW what you have quoted of mine. ie. Outside of the quotation. I would have thought by now you would have figured out how forums work.
