What happens if you get scared half to death twice?
You are three fourths dead.

If you were going to shoot a mime, would you use a silencer?
You don't shoot mimes, you hit them with impracticaly large mallets.

Dictionary itself is actually a mispelled word.

Yes, but vegans can't.

Do they sterilize the needles for lethal injections?
Government practices don't make any more sense to me now that I work in it..

That would explain why they enjoy the taste of Carlos Mencia.

If a man is standing in the middle of the forest speaking and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?
No, but he is without sandwich.

If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?
The better question is whether they can negotiate with themself.

42

If you saw a heat wave, would you wave back?
I would turn a cold shoulder.

Mayonnaise or Broccoli?
Broccoli, though preferred if dipped in mayo.

Sounds like a question for Mr. Wizard.

How do you like my nonsensical questions?
I actually laughed at the parsley farmer one. Good show



Do you have any infractions? If so, do you care to tell us how you got them?
Haha, 7 I think? I would say two or three of them were completely valid, but most of them are insubordination. Two of the last three in particular were indefensible. One consisted of making a non-explicit joke about Obama being a Kenyan (after a year+ of dismissing "birthers") and the last one consisted of being infracted because a mod dubbed a conversation as off topic, deleted the post by fiat, and then hit the infract button when I reposted the content with explicit references to the subject matter.

If you could have one TV sitcom house as your real home, which one would you pick?
I hate the show, but would love the Two and a Half men place.

What was the most frightening moment of your life?
There was a night when police showed up at our house while a roommate was growing pot. A domestic dispute (nothing physical) led to the wife of our friend and neighbor to call the police and say she heard fighting in the house. The police claimed they had to search the house for "bodies", I said they couldn't enter my house. They came in anyway (which I knew was illegal) found the plants as well as pipes and scales and what not and confiscated it. Though I knew it was an illegal search, I was still terrified of the potential consequences.

How do you feel about rain?
I used to love rain, but I am less appreciative now that I walk to work.

Will you be my friend?
Sure! Send me a pm and we'll make it facebook official.

I do not. I believe there are practical benefits to living life morally (I also fiercely reject moral relativism). If you do the right things, you will find success. Not instantly necessarily. Not to the extent you imagine, necessarily - but you will be more happy and successful than you would be if you deliberately acted immorally.

My name is Norman (though I go by my nickname "Tho" - rhymes with Bo), so it was a good fit.

At the height of my interest in comics I started working on a story involving a young idealistic politician who earned the nickname StorminNorman for a campaign phrase of "Storming into Washington and shaking up the status quo". After a short time in Washington, frustrated by the roadblocks placed before him, he decides to go all Batman on corrupt politicians and special lobbyists.

I'm a lot more radical than my family. My father was a Goldwater Republican, though he was more of a campaign rather than policy guy (one of my favorite stories of his was a conversation he had with Newt, whose first successful campaign he managed, when after Gingrich finished talking about some policy proposal my dad just shook his head and told him "you take this [crap] seriously".)

Unfortunately, as a Cold War product and former military, he fell into the Goldwater trap of war hawkishness and "security before liberty" on issues like the Patriot Act.

My mother is similar, though I don't think she is as committed to the militarism. She is far from libertarian though.

My brother made me quite proud though. He is apolitical, but told me "you know what, I don't know why the government can tell me I can't do heroine. Yes, its a mistake - but its my body." He'll vote for Ron Paul lol.

Let me ask you this:

How much of current Norm is schtick? You've always been a fairly level headed guy, but I also know that you love attention. So how much of the soap box screaming, "fight the man," bull **** claim (like Ron Paul will be the next president) nonsense is really you and how much is it you hamming it up for attention?

Little of it is schtick. I will occasionally argue a point to an end to play devil advocate (this is a very rare occasion). I don't love attention, but I do love discourse and debate. It is nothing about ego, but the art of the argument. I maintain that Hype debate has sharpened my intellect more than the entirety of class work.

I never claimed Ron Paul would be the next President. I think the closest I have said was that a win in Iowa would change the landscape. I may have once said he had a chance (which I would stick to, though this would require the perception that he has a chance - which Iowa could provide - and for him to improve his ability to message - which I find far less likely). I did say that I thought Gary Johnson had a shot, but that was before Paul entered the race. I believe that Gary Johnson, though less attractive in Iowa, would have had a much better shot nationally (especially in Florida and New Hampshire) over Ron Paul. His campaign, however, is competely incompatable with a Paul presence. If Paul had not entered, at least half of Paul's 8-12% would have gone to him, which would have qualified him for debates and forced the media to at least acknowledge him. I think his record of experience is better than Paul's, and I think being a new face would have helped with the media. He does have far less charisma in debates, however, than he does speaking to a small audience, so that was an unexpected weakness.

But again, no, "current Norm" is not a schtick - it is the product of intellectual growth. In 2008 my chief interest was winning and losing elections. Watching 9/11 in 7th grade, my chief policy interest, when I decided to look at the issues, was foreign policy - with my views changing as the true nature of war and military adverturism played out in Iraq and, to a lesser extent, Afghanistan. I think you will see very little difference in my opinion on war, immigration, the Patriot Act, etc. (I am still slightly more hawkish than Paul in this area, as I am not morally opposed to waterbording a known Al Qaeda agent - but intellectually opposed due to its ineffectiveness. I am similarily not morally offended by the assassination of Al-Awlaki - though acknowledging the need for checks and balances I would have a chief military officer go through a military trial using the defense that Awlaki was an enemy combatant).

This changed, however, when the economy fell apart and no one in the mainstream had answers.

I have been accused of arrogance but it was actually an acknowledgement of my intellectual limits in the subject of economics that really changed my course. I had not, for years, felt remotely outgunned by anyone in the Political Forum on issues in my wheel house - but it was clear Paradoxium was leagues beyond me in economics. So I asked him for help. He pointed me to Henry Hazlitt's Economics in One Lessonwhich eventually moved me to Austrian Economics. The rest is history.

Now as far as the soap box and "fight the man bull****", it is what I genuinely believe. I think the world is heading towards crisis. And I don't mean 2008 crisis, but one of an unprecedented scale. I think both parties are dominated by faulty economic thinking (Keynesianism, Monetarism or, more typically, economic agnostisism). No one in Congress cares about Monetary Policy (Literally. My Committee deals with monetary policy and we are lucky if four members show up for a hearing on the subject.) Meanwhile Monetary Policy is driving the economy. We have the Fed waging a currency war against the world (causing inflation in China, while we have the gaul of accusing them for currency manipulation, and rising food prices across the world - resulting in Arab Spring). We have Geithner demonstrate a complete lack of tact in trying to dictate to other countries. It's all ****. Best yet? Both Obama's and Romney's economic advisers are Keynesians (google Greg Mankiw for Romney) while Newt has had so many positions that it is impossible to tell what he stands for. So we have no real chance of substantive change on that position.

And my position does not come from an Austrian cocoon. Outside of Paul's hearings, none of the economic experts that testify before my committee are Austrian (and my position requires me to attend every one). I have read books by Krugman and other non-Austrians. I daily read blogs from across the pantheon of economic perspective. My conclusions remain, and increasingly confirmed.

So think of it from my position, I am a 22 year old kid who is kept up all night with visions of a catastrophic collapse in civilization's economic structure who doesn't just think the government doesn't understand the problem but has first hand knowledge that they don't. And instead of discussing the real subjects that matter, the Political Forum is more concerned about rolling their eyes at a Rush Limbaugh quote or similar partisan dribble. Similarly I am working in DC, where anyone who is remotely associated with Ron Paul is laughed at behind their back (which is peculiar since I have many people come to me with economic questions...), so I have few places (outside of Ron Paul's staff) to vent to.

I have never denied being an *******, though I will deny the validity of several specific fractions. But my actions are the result of frustrations and a need to vent. They are genuine, not schtick.

But I also recognize that my behavior has served to deprive me of one source of venting, so I am trying to work on that. I hope I will eventually be readmitted to the Political Forum and hope to avoid infractions for a while after that. Hopefully that aspect of "current Norm" is temporary. But we shall see. I think if people look at my past posts, they will notice that my style hasn't really changed - simply the substance has.

What do you think about the Detroit Lions this year?
I think the Lions are as talented as I thought they were, but less discipline than I believed. I hate to say it, but Matt may have been right on that regard. Suh has demonstrated to not be nearly as mature as I believed him to be and that sets the team back. You need your biggest players to be leaders in the locker room. I think we are dangerous if we make the playoffs, but we have to tighten up and rally.

Do you still think Matthew Stafford is an elite QB?
Matthew Stafford with 10 fingers is an elite QB. Matthew Stafford with 9 fingers is not. If I had to build a team around any QB, he would still be number 1. Though Cam Newton could win me over with a good interview. Remember Stafford is less than a year older than Newton.

Would you have given Stu only 2-game suspension?
I think 2 is enough. I am against reducing the suspension.

I like bimbos?

No, I was kidding on that. A (what appears to be failed) attempt at humor.

In a vacuum, I think they are about the same. The difference is that Bush's incompetency 1. tarnishes the reputation of the party I think better positioned to do the right things and 2. is ludicrously described as "small government", "capitalistic", "deregulation" sort of guy.

George W. Bush is a conservative progressive, a neoconservative ("compassionate conservative").

Obama is a secular progressive.

There is really little difference.
