"Holy Cow!" exclaimed Ra, sitting on the back of Nut.
"What now?" she mooed in exasperation.

But it must have seemed to him--dull as he is from years of solitude--like the perfect place to squat, and so he did, on my front porch, where I found him loosening his manly tensions without a care in the world your honor.

He came at me with a knife and a raging thirst for blood. I defended myself with reasoned pursuasion and a thirst for truth. The aluminium billy club secreted in my sleeve also helped impose the terms of our discussion upon his pocked, shaven skull.

Anticipating the imminent tedium, Fran fought hard to suppress a yawn when Doug asked a leading question as if he intended to initiate a discussion, then declined to actually debate the topic he raised, saying that it is an issue that cannot be deliberated on in this environment, and proceeded to ask another leading question instead as if he intended to initiate a discussion.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

I shouldn't have opened such a can of worms. It isn't anything I'm comfortable talking about in a moderated forum. The topics don't suit this group. My apologies, and I'll keep an eye on topics I bring up with you.
:funny:

Just waiting for the next leading question now.

Your obsession with me is hilarious, doubly so that you can't do it in a forum without favourable moderation.

It makes me respect your opinions on things like lolcats.

Your obsession with me is amply demonstrated in your signature. You wouldn't get away with the sarcastic comment about me if you did not benefit from the tolerant moderation in this forum.

Rationalia's moderators are doing something right. You have posted here at a rate of 30 posts per day in the past three months. If the moderation is better at Minromp you'd be posting more frequently there, but your posting rate is 3.6 per day in the same period, and you have not posted at all in the past week. Why would that be? Unfavourable moderation making you uncomfortable talking about certain topics?

Reassured by the resplendent carpet of green, Rupert strode confidently into the damp, learning in the process that you can't judge a brook by its clover. It was the first of many lessons he was to learn on Earth.
