Even if he manages to sort out the glitches I am not sure that his assessors will accept Butch's "mechanism for getting free snacks from the school vending machine" as his final year school project.

Loki (Dennis R. Levesque's avatar) looks up in the air like he is perfectly innocent but he's the mastermind punster who told me(I'm the kitten they call Mustachio) to put that Sugar Daddy from B4 into Apollo's (JPool's avatar) dog bowl and move his bone to B4. That evil primate knew the canine would get all mad when he carelessly bit down on "his bone", it wasn't what it was (B4), and his teeth got hopelessly stuck together on the caramel.

Mustachio here again. Actually, I am an anti-particle( Loki says I'm a positive muon) in Schrodinger's box. With an angry Apollo, if I leave the box no one will know if I am alive or dead.

Mew, Mew, Mew,μ+, μ++, μ+,... Mustachio is trapped in the Box
Now, Loki has a plan. Mustachio must rewire the box so the high voltage, neon light, negative wire is attached to the bone from B4. He must hang the bone outside the box. Apollo, an alpha male particle, will bite the bone, gain a couple of electrons, and float away since Helium is lighter than Nitrogen.

It's comment chains like this that get people calling you a Republican. You you act like you have nothing better to do than hurl insults at liberals, and you go out of your way to make a scenario into an excuse to bash the liberals.

How does that old saying go? "If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, very likely it is a duck."

If someone bashes liberals like a Republican, and throws 'whatabouts' around like a Republican, that's likely a Republican, even if a Republican claiming to be an independent.

And sometimes it's just fun to bash liberals. It's also a blast to bash conservatives.

And then there's Trump, in a category all by himself,

I am an old School Republican from the Dirksen clan. I firmly support If they are being stupid, bash away!. Stupidity doesn't have a political leaning. That would require a base level of intelligence.

You want to claim you respect free speech and you are going to the school that was the epicenter of the original free speech movement and you are screaming for restrictions on free speech I think you win the "I am a World Class idiot" award no matter what view you supposedly support.

you're confused, First a republican, and now an independent?

I'm neither. Again,... you don't know what your are saying and are just guessing... but I'm sure you'll try again.

And don't try to justify your false accusations, you'll just get burned just like in the last thread ... take you hand from the burner on the stove so it doesn't happen again and move on. ...

Tell you what, why don't you talk to your buds... and mark this off topic.
