... did anyone besides granolakey(sp) graknorke (who I sorta' doubt was being entirely serious) actually make the claim that there were no non-christian members of congress? I think I missed it...

well that took me 10 seconds of research to find a non-Christian member of US Congress :I

Don't just make claims without any research.
So it's only the politicians with special titles that do that "So help me God" thing?
Regardless, I think you put a bit too much weight into a comment intended to be in no way factual from multiple pages ago. And it wasn't even far from accurate, if that table posted when this discussion was relevant was posted. "Most" isn't much better than "all" when talking about representation of groups.

That may have been directed at me :P

Being as old as I am though, I probably should've used less absolute terms and at least looked into it more :P

The vibration does get quite annoying, though. Especially en masse. And there's apparently some of us who are motion sensitive, which makes getting irritated about 'em understandable.

Admittedly, you can turn off image animation, but if folks were being somewhat more reasonable about it, people wouldn't need to. Folks have just as much right to complain about other people being obnoxious as said people have to be obnoxious. If the latter don't like being bitched at, well... they can stop doing it.

Not so much deserves, as the person bitching at them has as much right to as they do to be obnoxious. Not quite the same thing. Doesn't mean you should complain, or be obnoxious, or deserve to be complained at. Just means you have as much right to one as you do the other.

Generally, you deserve to be complained at when you're being obnoxious intentionally, and make no effort to mitigate your actions in relations to those who find it obnoxious and ask you tone it down. Then you're kinda' being a jackass, usually. There's edge cases, but that's a good general rule...

The best part about being the only sober one is that sooner or later you will have multiple lifetimes worth of blackmail material.

Yeah, but I don't think people made vibrating avatars intending to be obnoxious (at least, I know I didn't). They did it because it was a fun thing to do, and then it seems a few people found it annoying. And I feel there's a fundamental difference between someone who does something just to annoy people and some who were doing something normally and someone happened to find what they were doing annoying.

However, seeing as some people are apparently suffering motion sickness from the things, I'll make my avatar static so as not to cause them further distress. People who just simply didn't like the things can suck it (nah, I don't really mean that, but I do want to emphasize that I'm only doing this to accommodate people with actual problems and not just giving in to the "stop having fun guys" guys).

I'm pretty sure the method to stop moving images has been posted at least a couple of times.

Gah. The world is conspiring against me. It simply does not want me to play XCOM:EW. First, it says it's gonna take four days to download 16Gb, and then, on the second day, steam refuses to acknowledge that I do indeed have internet, and doesn't let me connect. Fuck.

If it makes you feel better, it's not just you. I can't connect either, and apparently neither can most anybody else

My steam is down too. I think it's all that's stopped me from firing up Dark Souls 2 instead of spending the last few hours doing something important.
