Yeah, everybody out of the water....... ;D

And all the ships in the water need to come out too.

Maybe that's how Noah's flood happened, maybe it only rained a little but all the land fell into the ocean. Damn, I just gave Creationist a rationale for the flood.

I used to take for granted that the average American, while ignorant about some things, was not necessarily an idiot.

I'm pretty sure I've been wrong about that for a long time now.

If the lawmakers are idiots - that's on us for putting them in office.

If the lawmakers are NOT idiots - that's on us for putting people into office who CLEARLY think the American public is full of fucking idiots and will perform accordingly.

Either way, we're currently pretty well screwed.
