Everyone sent in a title! Woo! :)
I will be assigning these titles over the weekend. If anyone else wishes to participate, you can still send me your titles, but please do so as soon as possible. Thanks!

Re: What's up in Portland? Enquiring minds want to know

Here in Europe, we have Turks selling Italian pizza, Balkan folks operating hot dog stands, Chinese sushi restaurants, Greek restaurants that are actually German, Indian restaurants that are actually Arab, and so on. It's never been a problem. If it would have been back in the day, burritos would no...

Re: Circle of Titles VI

Thanks! This is going to be a hard task, it seems. With Jon not being around to remind everyone of finishing their songs, a lot of titles disappeared into oblivion. I like "Eavesdropping in a Mortuary". Hope someone recorded something for that one.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Seven

Reviews! 73 Keep It Beautiful - I like the idea, but I don't find the execution particularly interesting. It's not a bad song, but it doesn't do much for me. Like the vocal. Glenn Case - This reminds me of TMBG when they are trying to rock out. It's, perhaps, something about the melody in the verse ...

Re: Circle of Titles VI

Mine was "Strange Promise / Larger Than Eternity" (both cool titles, if you ask me), by Cookie Blue (whom I know personally, else I would have no idea whose titles those were). That means Cookie Blue was participating, too. Cookie's titles were "Rhamphorhynchus / Not a Dinosaur"....

Re: Circle of Titles VI

Upcoming: I am currently thinking about archiving all the Circles like Jon did with the first few. Nur Ein style, perhaps. I'd have to ask Niveous or someone for help, but I'll see to that after this year's CoT titles have been assigned. I see that a lot of you guys submitted late entries (EDIT: I s...

Re: Paris Accord

I feel like I explained this but I'll try again. It's fascinating. Why can't you non-Americans learn what freedom is???? /sarc Non-Americans, at least in democratic countries, have the full freedom to elect any idiot they want. Trump is still unmatched ;) You know, I see you are trying really hard ...

Re: Paris Accord

Thought I'd have some words on my own political attitude. I would call myself a liberal, centrist, perhaps leaning a bit toward the left. I try to be fair when judging individual politicians. In my native country of Austria, there are five major parties: a Conservative Party (Austrian People's Party...

Re: Paris Accord

I think there is a cognitive feedback loop of people having a backfiring reaction to hearing things that challenge their core beliefs. (I think that would happen no matter how that challenging information were presented though.) Many people are very deep into that loop. I have no idea if there is a...

Re: Paris Accord

The U.S. voting system, in general, is one thing that really puzzles people outside the States. A big country like the U.S., I think, would definitely benefit from compulsory voting, and I'm 99.9% sure that Trump would not have won the election with a voting system like the Australian one described ...

NOTE: I am not addressing anyone in particular here (save for those very people who voted for Trump and still defend him), just trying to counter any point made that might make people think Trump might be somewhat clever. Now one more thing that really astounds me is that apparently, Ivanka tried to...

Re: Paris Accord

Lunk's point considering intelligence is valid. Einstein, who I think we can all agree on being an intelligent person, had problems with some simple daily stuff, it is said. What makes him smart, in a non-scientific way, can be shown via en anecdote told about him. One day Einstein was walking past ...

Re: Paris Accord

The sad thing is, although American conservatives may feel good now drinking their liberal tears and all, they don't realize that even if their views were shared by the majority of Americans, which according to polls is not the fact, they are still pretty isolated on a global scale. To the rest of t...

Re: Paris Accord

I think you might not quite comprehend what exactly bewilders me, and many Europeans, so much. I can understand why his refreshing style, his claim to be a president for the American workers, etc. etc. made a difference. Now, of course the average European is super liberal in comparison to the avera...

As a European, I thought I just had to start a thread on this. Europeans indeed are quite pissed at the Trump administration now, though I can assure you most Europeans are intelligent enough, unlike Trump's voters, to distinguish separate American idiots from the, thankfully, overwhelming majority ...

Re: Circle of Titles VII

OK, another update. I was unaware of the news considering Merisan and the Ein final when I proposed the schedule for CoT VII. Changed the above dates accordingly.
