Crap We Need To Fight About But Haven't Yet

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

I put cream in my coffee just now.

Boom.
How womanly.
You'd know, wouldn't you, sweetheart?
My woman uses cream/creamer in her coffee. Unless it's alcohol, adding anything to coffee is the mark of the fairer sex. Didn't you know that, buttercup?
Nope. All this time i thought it was genitalia that determined gender. I always thought adding alcohol to coffee was the sign you didn't really like alcohol and needed to cut the taste.
I drink tea from a china cup and saucer and regularly wear makeup. I also have probably drank more liquor and slept with more women than all of you.
Well, I would agree with part of that, the sleeping with more women, as I have known but one woman, and I love her with such a ferocity that adulterers burst into flame in our presence. However, as an Infantryman, I will challenge you on the liquor. The gallons of hard liquor that I have gone through... The grunt life is a hard life, we live hard, drink hard, and play hard. I sometimes put liquor in my coffee as a dessert, but if I've set out to drink, I drink the unadulterated liquor, no mixing, no flavors.
What was the silly argument we were having? Oh right, adding cream to coffee. Sorry for the digression, back on task now. Women, the lot of you! :twisted:
I've been called worse by better.
I've had combat veterans admit to me that they were absolutely terrified at the thought of doing what I've done for a living for twenty years. Army grunts have nothing on Shakespearean actors. Nancies in combat boots, the lot of you.

Bully for you, Tiger. You do realize that Don Juanism is often merely a manufactured defense against one's latent homosexuality, of course. Painless almost killed himself when he learned this. Frankly, I'm not sure I believe it, but kissing and telling remains abhorrent.

You have also worn far more makeup than I have.


Flimshaw, you blustering barrister of bombast. If I were a sodomite, latent or otherwise, I'd have jumped in feet first long ago. I'm an Anglo-Catholic who works in theater. I've been fending off advances from the limp-wristed my entire damn life. Hell, it'd be a professional advantage to me if I were a lispy mincer.

Genitalia does not determine gender, it determines sex.
Just as location where one was born does not determine race. There are three races, and none of them require hyphens.

Talladega. It's that important.

On another note, am I the only one who wishes they could get into car racing, but just can't see the point? Drag racing, motocross, superbike... I can get behind. Cars doing circles (even squiggly F1 circles)? notsomuch.

You must have been talking to an Airman pretending to be a grunt, they do that quite often. And I have done what you do, though not professionally. I'm a classically trained vocalist, competed in, and won numerous choir competitions, acted in several productions, even got accepted into the Young Americans. The only thing I never liked was wearin stage makeup. None of that compares to the fright of hand to hand combat.

Of course all this is in jest, to play along with a made up argument. Don't want anyone's nickers in a twist over youth room shenanigans.

It doesn't matter how the eggs are made if I'm just going to throw them at Hugo anyways.
It sounded better when the voices in my head were saying it.

What you choose to add or don't add has a lot of bearing on how well they hold together while thrown and therefore affects the range and terminal ballistics.

That's right - terminal ballistics of thrown scrambled eggs - possibly a new low for CPS.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

I disagree. This could be the most important thing we've discussed, fought over, and lost members over besides the POY.


What is added is determined by the desired outcome. I would suggest a variety of launching devices is in order as well. Much as we require differing calibers and styles of firearms for different purposes.

Do you want a scatter shot scrambled egg impact? The grenade-like impact of a raw egg in the shell, soft boiled, hard boiled? What about an omelette?
