    Like you would know me. What do you know of what technology I own? You literally just made an ass of yourself by assuming.
    I said, "Hi, Greg. I'm the creepy girl." He chuckled, then wanted a handshake and I gave it. I wanted a hug and he gave it. One of his sons was there, too. Cute.

    The only one of those things I have is a pocket-sized digital camera, and it's broken so I don't use it and I'm fine. I'm completely fine in my life without any of those things that didn't exist in "ancient history".

If we were talking about how dated a 20 year old movie looked, or how powerful my phone is compared to a nokia brick, you'd have a point. But we're not, and you don't.
    Exactly. Comparing political history with technology is absurd. Doesn't matter if you don't like politics or history; the point still stands.

    You can't separate politics from technology. Didn't you realize that politics use twitter, facebook, ads on your computer, modern technology to count votes, and that technology influences political issues? And don't even get me started on modern warfare and military weapons. You guys really should pay attention more.

    ...because most people are selfish, egotistical idiots.

    Guys. This thread, like nearly every other thread on the main page, blows. It's not just infighting, but it's infighting between a bunch of BBS members that my old ass doesn't give a damn about. I know the election is annoying and everyone's sick of it, but can we please turn this into some semblance of a discussion about the election?

    So, Obama will probably win. If he doesn't win Florida, he needs to either win Ohio or else win every battleground state but Ohio.

    I can't stand how CNN keeps talking about "Miami-Dade County" as though it were a politically significant entity. Counties don't carry electoral votes. It's a huge county with lots of uncounted votes, and they're giving us no information on where within the county those votes are located. That's kind of a big deal since Miami-Dade is a huge-ass county with both major liberal (inner-city Miami) and conservative (Hialeah) strongholds within it.

    Also, why does everyone always act all elitist about CNN's coverage of the election? Why is it so horrible that they use holograms and technology? I don't necessarily like everyone on their election team, and the aforementioned issue about Florida coverage is annoying, but on the whole I think they do an excellent job. It's not their fault that they just make people recognize how fucked up the electoral college is.
    "LIVE OR DIE, MAN??"

    "DIE!!!!!"

    "WRONG! HOOOONK!"

    So in other words, you are trying to say people should not be posting but instead watching CNN?
