My bad - completely forgot about the decade of hatred and bitterness that have built up in the legendary Iowa-Purdue rivalry. Won't happen again.
I doubt Oak is very happy right now. But damn, That was a great Indiana game.
He came here to escape his depression and you drag him back down into the abyss kicking and screaming. I hope you're happy.
I just wanted him to get down to our feelings from last night.
That is an acceptable justification, carry on.
Sometimes, not often but sometimes less is more
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
True, that was a great game. Might have saved Illinois' season if they can turn it around from here.
That's more like it!
Who are you again?

Actually this isn't true. I haven't read Marx, nor do I know his specific definition of a Communist state, but theoretically you don't need an equal pay scale (meaning job-job, not ethnicity/sex/etc.) and you can also have a governing body in a true Communist state. I actually took a class at Kirkwood where we discussed how this would actually work.
Basically the payscale in at least this theoretical Communist society would work similarly to our free market system where job pay is determined by things like need, importance, value (as determined by peers), etc. You would still have all of the same jobs from sports coaches to heads of state, however not all jobs are created equal and not every worker is equal in terms of ability. Why should a plumber make the same as an astrophysicist? Pay wouldn't fluctuate as wildly as it does in a free market and theoretically everyone would be given a liveable wage so some people wouldn't need to work 3+ jobs either.
Kind of tried to sum that up since I'm about to go to sleep, but needless to say, yes it is possible to have a power-trip Communist ala Joseph Stalin.

You don't want my job.
