| Political Talk|| Why can't the US conquer the Arabian peninsula? - PenguinNinja on 9/1/14 at 7:06 am|
Seems like we get ourselves into more trouble supporting the Saudis than we would if we just conquered them and took their oil.
So much bull shite to keep them in power so we have a "friend" with all the oil, and they outright support our mortal enemies in extremist Sunnis throughout the ME.

Far exceeded my expectations. I didn't know beforehand how they'd sound after all the time passed, and u didn't know if they'd be enjoying it or just going through the motions. It was a fantastic show.
Highly recommend if you get the chance an...

Just b/c Turkey doesn't want to lose a chunk of land to an independent Kurdistan? All this because of that?...
| Political Talk|| Why does the West GAF if Iraq breaks into 3 (or more) independent countries? - PenguinNinja on 8/11/14 at 1:52 pm|
Seems like a whole lot of effort going into keeping a country together whose borders were drawn almost 100 years ago almost arbitrarily for Western mandates.
FWIW, this is not a "It's all the West's fault" thread. I just don't get why we GAF if they want to break into Kurdistan, etc. ...

| Political Talk|| Israeli Captive Soldier KIA: does anyone buy this? - PenguinNinja on 8/2/14 at 7:17 pm|
Last time Israel had a soldier captive by Hamas, they had to give up like 50 Palestinians to secure his release. This time one is captive, and then all of a sudden, they randomly discover he's been killed.
Seems fishy. Methinks they're just leaving him behind to rot rather than get into anoth...

Let me further restrict my criteria to narrow this down a bit:
frick the suburbs. Just not my thing.
And my work will be downtown.

Assuming you work downtown and are willing to spend whatever it takes for a pretty nice (but not crazy extravagant) 3-4 BR place? Could be a house, town home, condo...whatever.
Why would you choose that area?
How much would you have to spend for that pretty nice 3-4 BR place that you want in ...

I have the bandsintown app (great app, BTW) which scans the artists on my phone and then alerts me when those groups have got a concert scheduled nearby me. It also recommends similar music, which is good for discovering new bands on otherwise boring Friday nights.
I'm wondering if there isn'...
