On another history note, Pennsylvania Dutch is actually a corruption of Deutsch, referring to the settlers there who spoke German. These settlers were primarily Lutheran in origin while the Puritans and their ilk were Calvinist in origin.

Shalom my jew brothas,

Also, I want to be the asshole who corrects wombat, but he's pretty much half right. the only thing is that the puritans weren't the first folks here, obviously, and the founding fathers were a religiously diverse group. Jefferson would be considered a godless commie in todays standards (he owned a Koran!!!!) and Adams, along with others, were deists. So yeah, the question of religious in America is kind of complicated.

governor!"


thanks man, i herd wombat in the podcast and had to come strait here to correct him... and i would like to add that the founding fathers were not actually christian in the way we think of christian, i dont remember what they were called ( it has been 2 years since i took history) but my professor described them as believing we were like a pin ball and god just pulled the little knob thingy but what ever happened after that was man's doing.... and also the pilgrims did come to america for religious freedom but not "more religion"..... there was plenty of religion in england..... but pilgrims were a part of a bigger group called Calvinist including pilgrims, puritans, and presbetarians.
puritans wanted to purify the church of england... failed and left for the netherlands (this is why they are called the pennsylvania dutch) then settled in mass. and mygrated down to penn. and rhode island, pilgrams landed in the south and really did not do much beside b**** slap the american indians, and never learned about Presbyterians( except my whole family is presbetarian)

^my governor sucks^

Thrustbucket, i understand where you are coming from on the idea that this issue should be total mob rule but our gov. is not a pure democracy to the point of that we have to account for the minority in this case gays.... if we strictly go by what local gov. says how would we have resolved slavery or the Jim crow laws... i think on smaller issues or issues that don't deal with denying a group of people rights should (and mostly are) decided by state or smaller governments... but time and time again us southerners (i live in texas) prove to uneducated, predigest, republican voters who would never seem to pas up an opportunity to declare themselves supreme
-----sorry just realized i committed on a posted that was really old sorry....i just don't want to have waisted my time writhing this...... ^and props to the synergy ^

In Topic: What is your Achievement point average?

i have played way to many games to figure that out....i would have to take into account arcade games and back when if you just tried a demo of a arcade game it would count towards your played games, i would have to sort those out..... but on my gamer score leader board... i am 600 something in total points and like 5,000 in percentage(in US)..... but i think you should take both into account because there are people who just play a lot of games who artificially boast there gamer score and those who just play halo 3 and have 1000/1000 in that
