Who is your favorite homestarrunner.com character?

Doesn't everyone have to say Strong Bad by default?  But digging beyond the obvious (and I'm going to take Homestar out of the running too, because I think we're talking about best supporting character, and the whole site revolves around the two of them)...

I really like Coach Z, Bubs, and Strong Sad.  I've probably got to give the ultimate edge to Bubs, though.  He's underappreciated.

I'm a fan of The Cheat myself (Strong Sad may be a close second), but when I think underappreciated, I think of the Poopsmith and the King of Town.

The Poopsmith is underappreciated because his job sucks.  Clearly.

The King of Town is awesome.  My friend can do a perfect "Doo hoo hoo, doo hoo hoo" King of Town impersonation.  Yet, as much as I love the King of Town, deep inside I know that he's no Bubs.

As for the Cheat, he's obviously cool, but I think he's somewhat overrated.  I got him when I took the homestarrunner personality quiz, so maybe I shouldn't say that.  I'm just glad he's not dead.

does santa claus sleep with his beard inside or outside of the covers?

Clearly outside.  This is one of the coolest questions in awhile.  +2.4 cool points.

voting according to faith is different than voting according to what your church leader tells you to vote.  hitler duped a lot of people into agreeing with him simply because he told them.  the great neuremberg defense.  while this is an extreme example, it's relevant in that people unquestioningly going through the motions are a danger to themselves and to others. 

Maybe your faith lines up with how your church leader says to vote though.  Is that such a farfetched scenario? 

By the way, you lost this discussion the moment you mentioned Hitler.  I'm invoking the Hitler rule.

I don't know who norman vincent peale is, but he sounds like a feminine hygiene product.

He wrote the Power of Positive Thinking, HTH

BTW, DOWNY, I seem to recall you wondering if I could even get into Cooley in another thread.  It should frighten you to no end to know that it is now a realistic possibility that I could be joining you at University of Minnesota with money.

i guess we will have to agree to disagree, because i think my premise is true.  it's also not some doctrine that i've found lying around in a book somewhere that i latched onto.  of maybe i did... in how to be an elitist prick.  i've come to this conclusions after countless interactions with people that i know (my own family for one).  i didn't say no one questions their political ideologies.  that was one example, though i have found it to be a great example since i think it's very true for the most part.  consider this: i'm currently in kentucky.  during the last election, churches were telling people who to vote for on one issue.  many of these people were interviewed on tv.  they had no f-ing idea what the assemblage of issues were that candidates supported.  rather, they had their blinders on and saw things in 2 dimensions (in relation to the election). 

this may denote a lack of respect for other people's opinions.  i'm not a relativist, so i have no problem admitting that i think some opinions are better than others.  however, it does not denote a lack of respect for people in general.  as i said, it's not an intrinsic part of their/our being, it's simply a matter of choice. 


Agree to disagree it is.

I have no disrespect for those who choose to vote in accordance with their faith.

Actually, the only Platinum Dragon, named Bahamut, is considerably larger than your average gold dragon.

And there is no such thing as a steel dragon.

The Bahamut Esper helps you learn Flare.

thank you for pointing out the faults in my inclusion of all people.  however, this was clearly not my intent as the message should go on to clarify, as well as my subsequent messages. 

however, i'm willing to defend this statement for the most part.  as i said, i'm sure i'm guilty of this as well.  at least, i know i have been in the past.  it's not a character flaw.  i'm not quite sure why this is so offensive to you, but it's not meant to be. 

It's not really offensive to me personally.  But it is an overall attitude I've seen too much of, and I challenge it when I see it.  So many people take this as unquestioned doctrine, and that's what's ironic.  "People are stupid".  "People don't question things".  All these great generalizations about these faceless supposed "people". 

But while it's not offensive to me, I think it's highly offensive on a general level, in the general direction of humanity.  I hope you see why I think it denotes a lack of respect toward to common man to imply that most everyone votes the way grandpa voted and doesn't know why.  In my uneducated extended family, you have Democrats and Republicans who will argue their opinions for hours until they're blue in the face.  They all came from the same place, were raised in the same homes.  If they haven't questioned things, why do they have such widely divergent opinions?

I think your premise is faulty.

This is one of the most bizarre things I have ever heard of.  Why potpourri?  That's the last thing I'd expect to be put to use as a slogan-bearer for anti-Semitism.
