  1. I stick mostly with scotch. I am also a huge wine fan so I will indulge myself with that from time to time. Have not had a beer in 8 months however (when I started my diet) Has worked well for me, but I've been a slow burner with this thing. Started out doing a strict keto diet for about 3 months, but switched to just more of a low carb/carb controlled diet for the last 4 months (probably between 30-50 g's a day) with some IF mixed in there (1 day of 20+ hrs, 2 days of 16/8 per week) in an effort to create something more sustainable. Lost about 30 lbs since July and 3 inches off the waist (which was my main goal). I don't know about you all, but I've found that the amazing thing about a low carb diet is that I've lost all desire to eat breads, rice, pastas, or most sweets (I'll eat a bite or two of cake and feel sick from the sugar rush). My priority since I started experiencing some success has been to effect a long term lifestyle change, and I think I've been able to do that by substituting carbs with foods like dark chocolate (80%+) and flavored 0 cal sparkling water (prob the one thing I cannot live without), and by not cutting out booze but instead switching to scotch. Anyways, I've been a long time reader of this thread but this is my first post in it, and just felt compelled to share with all of you. This thread has been a great support for me, and for those of you posting here that are struggling with maintaining the discipline, know that there are folks here reading (and living) your stories and silently rooting for you.
  2. Well, it's not quite the same thing. Using the term racist in a derogatory way is not really a big deal, since racists generally deserve to be thought of like that. Whether or not someone deserves a time out for calling someone racist is a separate issue that should be handled on a case by case basis imo, and if the recipient was a Trump supporter or not doesn't really matter. ETA: My point in all this was to say OP's example was a poor one. Moderating the use of the word queer in his example is not a left or right issue, it's a human decency issue.
  3. In many cases, sure. In this case? No. If I go around using a segment of the population as a derogatory term, when that segment has no actual association with anything derogatory, than I deserve a time out.
  4. Fair enough. But the moderating of calling someone a queer has nothing to do with the person who was called that. I don't know why you keep going back to a point that is irrelevant. It does not matter if the person being called a queer was offended or not, or more offended than being called a racist. The person making the statement likely deserves a time out regardless. I agree with you that fish is being just as obtuse about what he said.
  5. Seriously, there is no need for that kind of name calling man. I am sure you don't have a real good sense of where this guy is coming from. Maybe he is a bigot, or maybe he's just ignorant, or maybe he's a troll. But when you start flinging insults you let him make you look bad.
  6. So, after two people already walked you through it, you still think the bannable offense is on the individual receiving the "insult"?
  7. Yeah I didn't realize this was a thing until now. I'm at a loss for words on how to respond. I have no interest in any i-mud slinging.
  8. I don't really care for this discussion on sides and all that, but wow, I didn't realize that someone could miss the point as to why the second example is more offensive than the first this badly.
  9. Or, maybe your mother was just much better at understanding and empathizing with a young boy in that situation than the prepubescent you and, quite likely, the fully mature you?
  10. Really? You think the Corporations are unhappy with the current political backdrop? You think the execs that run these organizations are peeved with the effect that the tax cuts have had on their stock options as well as their personal tax filings?
  11. Played Black Ops 4 Blackout (battle royale for those who don't know) for the first time last night (Primetime convinced me to join him). I never could get into fortnite or pubg but wow was I surprised about how much fun I had. We played quads as a party of 3/4 and won 2 out of I think 6 matches. Definitely worth a try if you like the COD shooting mechanics but don't like the twitch dominant experience of their regular multiplayer.
  12. Pretty sad that you have to go all the way down to Billy King's Nets deals in order to feel better about that trade. Colangelo really did a lot of damage to this franchise in what amounted to essentially a cup of coffee as the team's GM. Took our (Raptors) owners over 6 years to get out of the smoke and mirrors trance he put them in and finally turf the guy. Idiot spent all of our assets and cap space in a futile effort to resign Chris Bosh and convince everyone that drafting Andrea Bargnani #1 overall was not a mistake. There's no doubt in my mind he would be trying to pull the same kind of crap around Fultz. You should consider this summer's Twitter scandal a gift from the Gods.
  13. I love this show, easily one of my favorite shows ever made. Then again, I'm a Chinese Canadian with a Korean wife that has spent most of my life in Toronto. But I don't think you need to be Canadian to enjoy it - I think anybody can enjoy it despite the fact that its not extremely funny, nor very clever, nor well acted, because its a pretty fun and easy going show. But the reason why I like it so much is that it was so refreshing to finally see a show that I could relate to. I grew up watching sitcoms with family dynamics that were nothing like what I experienced at home, and kids who did things that I rarely ever thought of doing. And this was true whether I was watching white sitcoms, black sitcoms, or sitcoms from Hong Kong and other Asian places. We Asian Americans/Canadians basically have Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle and now this show Anyways, to me, this is the beauty of Netflix. They do a great job finding something for everyone because they are so global now and not affiliated with any of the major networks. Hopefully Netflix's success will spur more of these kinds of shows to be made.
  14. Yeah the branding of anyone anti trump as a lib is completely ridiculous and doesn't help their cause. I feel the same way about the left whenever they tar and feather anyone who doesn't agree with them on gender issues. I think there is a large amount of people on both sides in some serious need of self reflection.
