    Congress: more popular than gonorrhea, less popular than a colonoscopy

    You just can't make this shit up.


    At least the American people like their Congress more than they like the ebola virus. But it was close.
    I don't argue to be right, I argue to be proven wrong. Because I'm aware that the collective intelligence of the community likely has more to offer to me by enlightening me, than I do to an individual by "winning" an argument with them.

    Apparently a quarter of Americans have a more positive view of ebola than Congress.

    Honestly guessing they're not sure what Ebola is.

    Gee, they almost take our nation over the brink of economic recession . . . multiple times might I add . . . because both sides refuse to compromise and work with the others like a bunch of grown-ass adults.

    And they wonder why their popularity is right now so fucking poor.

    These are the assholes who got our S&P rating downgraded.

    If a video game developer removed tumors from players, they'd whine about nerfing their loss in weight and access to radiation powers. -Cracked.com

    I got a good chuckle about the "grown-ass adults". You are completely true. What's really sad, is all these super old dudes (most are male, and wrinkly with white/gray hair) are acting like 5 year olds. Hell, I know a few 5-7 year olds with more sense than these "wizened old elders"...

    Well, it does have a silly name... for you know, being a dangerous virus and all.

    Not as funny (but sad) as telling someone they have Pokemon Syndrome though. It's an actual condition, though most doctors elect to never say the name and instead swamp the patient with medical jargon.
    “…the whole trouble lies here. In words, words. Each one of us has within him a whole world of things, each man of us his own special world. And how can we ever come to an understanding if I put in the words I utter the sense and value of things as I see them; while you who listen to me must inevitably translate them according to the conception of things each one of you has within himself. We think we understand each other, but we never really do.”

    Least ebola has unique properties that can be harness for extreme good (or extreme evil). Congress....well it's hard to get much good out of them

    Ebola outbreaks at least have the small virtue of ending quickly and thus are limited in the damage they can do. No such luck with Congress.

    I'm more surprised that there are people who like head lice.

    Congress falls between the flu and new York jets on the scale of terribleness for me, but the president falls between a pike up my ass
    And a predator drone on top of my house

    Yeah it's kind of shocking, I don't know how they reason, wouldn't their popularity increase if they showed that they are rational and intelligent people who are willing to make a compromise at times for the good of the nation?
    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...
