    LOL! The most “WTF” Trump quotes

    There are times in which Trump says something so WTF that humor peaks out over the despair and I walk around amazed at what a total and complete moron he is. Examples: Showing off his astronomy knowledge:”You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe.”...

    What is the term for when someone repeatedly fucks up and yet still rises to the top? I know there is a word for this, but I can’t think of it. I’ll just have to call it “StephenMoorizing”. How awful is Stephen Moore, Trump’s pick for the Fed? Let’s look! During the Great Recession, Moore...

    What Are You Reading?

    I should have copy-and-pasted from the SLU thread, but what are you reading? From fluff to dense tones, we want to know! ....

I read through part of the thread about this about two minutes ago, and my keen computer knowledge gets me as far as “SLU was old and huge, like a magnificent, ancient whale cruising through the internet seas, and will have to be lovingly harpooned while this forum is like...”...
