Guys, some of the things said on this site are just not appropriate. Can we please be more civil? For example, people keep saying that arguments or statistics are pulled out of someone's @ss. There is such a nicer, better, and more appropriate way to say that. And Bill Maher offers the solution: "rectum-derived statistics."

So please, please! Start using this phrase.

Really, though. I agree with you that people need to be more civil on the website.

lol Wylted. I'm sorry you missed the joke(s). Tongue-in-cheek is hard to recognize if your brain is determined to find reasons to dislike someone.

I prefer the term "rectum-derived statistics".

I'm sorry you missed it also, maybe if I'd added a smiley face to it, but I think since 72% of the stuff I write is Bullshitt the smiley face would be unneccesary in all but like 7% of cases.

I thought the "not enough" mafia quote wasn't overly subtle enough to indicate an attempt at humor. I did mean for it to have a grain of truth in it though, because I think humor is better when it stings a little.
