What's with Americans pronouncing Graham "Gram"?

What's with Americans pronouncing Worcestershire "Woorsestershy-er"?

What's with Australians pronouncing Loughborough "Loogabarooga"?

What's with English people pronouncing Arkansas "Arkansas"?

These are mysteries.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Wouldn't vote for him, but I generally like Lindsey Graham and he doesn't seem like a bad guy. I like this, it's neat. Did you notice the blender they use breaks as well and sends plastic shrapnel flying?

Also, Graham is a pretty interesting individual in the world of politics. He has never married and has no children, which is definitely a political oddity. Usually bachelors don't fare so well in the realm of politics. Except that one time. But then that didn't work out so well because he kinda caused this by being a lazy do-nothing Pennsylvanian. :|

That jabroni should have the confederates an ocular patdown and defused the threat before it happened.

I think Keystone has been given too much importance by both sides, and in general I think a pipeline is preferable to shipping this stuff by rail.  But I'm guessing that this won't sit well with some people.

Is it? Do you have sources because I've never considered

She's more of the same imo, a tool to money at the end of the day
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I mean, I don't exactly have sources for a vague opinion that I have.

There have been a lot of oil car derailments, and they often catch fire.  Here's an article about a few from back in March.

http://www.businessinsider.com/heres-why-so-many-oil-trains-have-derailed-this-year-2015-3

You've got thousands of tons of potentially dangerous fuel being hauled through residential areas, vs a purpose built pipeline that could avoid such sensitive areas.  I don't have any information about the risks or rates of pipelines breaking, it could be just as bad of a problem if not worse.  All I know is that we can't switch off of fossil fuels overnight, and the stuff has to get shipped one way or another.  A purpose built method of transport seems like the better choice.

“Imagine a NASCAR driver mentally preparing for a race knowing one of the drivers will be drunk. That’s what prepping for this debate is like.”

This is going to be one hell of a show.

To be entirely fair, Buchanan was also probably gay. Though heredity matters little in American government (yeah, I know, but shut up), historically having a wife and children was important because it meant that you had a strong lineage to inherit, not just proof you weren't gay. The closer you get to present day the less important the former is but the more important the latter. As long as he doesn't come out of the closet and has some sort of heterosexual track record, I don't think anyone's going to bat too many eyes at him being single. It's probably less scandalous to have a president who's available than a president who isn't supposed to be available but is anyways.

Also people just trust married people who have kids more.

It sort of signifies that this person is together enough to look after some other human beings, and is probably not secretly a murderous psychopath or dweeb who's incapable of attracting a member of the opposite sex.
