    I dunno, seems to me like you can't be "more" muslim than muslim.

    You can be a more literalist Muslim or a more regressive Muslim, but those are not "more Muslim" than the moderate ones.

    I don't think you're wrong, but it also seems fair as a matter of common usage to roll some of that meaning up in the claim that Texas is "more" Christian than most other states, for instance.

    I thought Muslim fundamentalism or whatever the proper name is is a 19th century thing anyway.

    Well, yeah, it's more christian in the sense that there's more people identifying as christian in Texas than an atheist heckhole like New York.

    Some claim Ned Flanders is more Christian than Homer Simpsons even though they attend the same church each Sunday.

    I'm not defending the guy in general or even this point's validity in particular, but I think that is his point Echo.

    ... that some Muslims have extreme views but not all of them? idgi

    It's something like, "Look what becoming more Muslim has done to the social regulations in a country that used to treat women reasonably well."

    I understand it not clicking because it's not a very reasonable argument.

    Well, stated like that it's kind of redundant, because it reduces to "extremists have extreme views".

    I think a lot of people would take issue with the notion that "more Muslim" = salafism, too.

    Yeah, which is why I'm laying out what I think he's getting at, not supporting it.

    That's dumb.

    Maybe Flanders is a better Christian than Homer, but that is not quantitative, that's qualitative.

    I got to fly right away in Outland and Northrend and Cataclysm! At least while leveling this character.

    Having to suddenly stop flying is a paaaaaaain.

    Yes, now.

    Every time a new continent is released, the ability of characters to fly around that content is restricted to higher levels, but the restrictions on flying around the old continents are relaxed.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    The new pokemon is so great you guys.

    YOU GET TO ACCESSORIZE AND PICK CLOTHING

    Also there are some monsters and you can make them fight or something I don't know.

    (Also walking is quick and not a pain in the ass and you get to pick what you look like in the beginning and there's a dark skinned option, which is nice)

    And Fennekin is adorable, and has multiple rad evolutions.

    They want you to walk around and enjoy the scenery on the new continent.

    banned? well, provided it wasn't something you did that caused the ban (e.g. if it was stolen by someone), blizzard is usually pretty helpful in getting lost accounts recovered. Looks a bit late for that, though.

    No, I have no idea why it was banned. I tried getting it unbanned and Blizzard assumed it was someone hacking my account and froze my entire battle.net account. I have to, like, send them a copy of a government-issued ID to get it unfrozen. It's a huge pain in the ass!

    Also, nooooo I love your tankiiiiiing!

    Holy crap. We were doing yard work out in front following the instructions of our grandmother (planting stuff), and when we went into the backyard to put things away I heard a very distinct buzzing noise. It didn't take long to notice that a TON OF BEES are angry as shit. Their hive is in our around the tree growing in the neighbor's yard, a tree that hangs over our garden.

    Northrend was when Blizzard finally got quests down, but I think they tried to apply the same sort of streamlining to the instances and that did not work out as well.

    Will the reason I am IT at the moment is to pay rent. It is a temp job, pays okay and is something to pay rent while I am looking for stuff in my field.

    Which about the only thing you got close was the East Asia.

    I do International Studies.

    But I actually trained to monitoring and evaluation of programs. Which is basically telling people that quantitatively and qualitatively they are helping or hurting with interventions or projects.
