    This thread should be closed. It turns everyone who reads it gay! [​IMG]

    Back in high school, I always wondered why the Algebra Club seemed to meet more often than any of the other clubs. I mean there are only so many ways you can talk about math, so why did they meet 4 or 5 times a week, when everyone else only met 3?

    Now I know why. Gay sex nerd orgy. Solve for x.

    My impression is that the Tea Party started as a reasonable group, but somewhere along the way they were mugged by brain thiefs and have yet to recover their property.

    Broken World News is a parody website which says in its “about” section: “If you believe any of the **** you read here you are a freaking moron.”

    It's not so moronic when you consider some of the actual statements some Tea Party politicians have made...

    Hang on. Hang on.

    I did a little searching and found what appears to be the legitimate and direct source to the OP's story, a press release from the Tea Party of Louisiana ...

    I scrolled a little further down their page and ran across this headline ...

    Wow ... can't wait for these guys to get in power.

    I don't see where it claims that CC makes you gay. So basically this thread is based on false information or a parody.

    I can't wait for these guys to get in power either. Oh wait, you're being sarcastic. Ok then just what do you feel Common Core is all about ?

    A baseline set of standardized material designed to keep all schools in the nation roughly on par with each other?

    Too late!

    Wait, since I was already gay does this thread turn me straight?

    It turns you into a math nerd. And if you were already a gay math nerd, it turns you into a helicopter.

    You do have a point. I got so wrapped up in finding the source that I forgot the premise of the OP.

    While the TPoL may hold some extreme POVs, CC turning people gay isn't one of them ... at least as far as this press release is concerned.

    Dug a little deeper.

    According to (FWIW) rawstory.com, the TPoL had originally cited the brokenworldnews parody mistakenly as fact on their site, and they claim to have a screen shot as evidence.

    I wouldn't take it to the bank, but it does help to explain how the OP may have picked it up.

    ----------

    I truly don't know about the program.

    But I suspect if you use the word "socialist" to describe it, you're probably exaggerating a wee bit too much.

    I'm proud to say that I was always bad at math, thereby proving beyond a shadow of a doubt (even though I wear pink dress shirts!) that I am a manly, macho, ladies-only-for-this-boy man!:cool:

    What if I'm already a helicopter? Will I turn into some sort of hovercraft?

    They were independents who saw both fault in the democrats and republicans, but their small government stance made it easy for the GOP (same thing as brain thief) to infiltrate.

    Funny thing the tea party and their current beliefs:

    OK, jk, but the tea party has become so devoid of logic that it won't be long until conservative republicans start thinking this way:D

    OH NO! I've always found math easy as pi. All this time, I've been gay and never realized it.:eek: Since I'm gay now, does that mean I have to give up my slovenly lifestyle? One of the hallmarks of the homosexual man was that he's meticulously groomed and dressed.;)

    Life ain't fair, man. So the sole perk of being gay I get is being good at math. Where's my fashion sense, my élan? I'm going back to being straight if I have to spend my life being a frumpy guy.:mad:

    See, you're a gay math nerd, and math nerds aren't exactly known for their exquisite taste in clothing. This applies to all math nerds, regardless of sexual orientation, poindexter.

    Also, you're a helicopter now.

    I'm supposed to be gay, since I'm good at math. Then how come flipping through a Playboy makes me harder than a quadratic equation?:confused: And it lasts for more than 4 hours.:eek::p Errmm... 4 minutes.:eek:

    I learned from the master himself, Micky Yanai.:p Umm...it's probably for the best that you not google him. NSFW. Needless to say, don't try that at home. The man IS a professional.:eek:

    The Passion Propeller is a move that will impress the lady. It's hard work, but worth it, IMO. The Missus use to have chronic headache that gets triggered when she's in bed. I found the cure.:D:eek::D
