Re: Upbringing

I think the more we try to be "progressive" and change crap around, the further we get from where we should be, because: 1. We change things for the sake of change, so nothing stays around. 2. We do away with things that WORKED simply because a newer (and possibly buggy) version has been r...

Great Losses of the 21st Century

I was reading this article sent to me from Mephs. It is great and I think there is a lot of merit to what it says. The author seems to have noticed the same things i do. http://blog.theurbanrebellion.com/2008/09/great-losses-of-twenty-first-century.html What are your thoughts? I think many things ad...

Re: "People Are Idiots"

You can take in, store, and regurgitate any bit of information you like, in any quantity. But it is that knowledge, and the ability to apply it practically, and the recognition of analogy and relation between one datum and another that makes a person "smart" rather than just "info-ret...

Re: Signatures and Sexism

This is what i try to explain to so many people and they look at me like i have a swastika on m forehead. people are different and its the differences that make the world go 'round. by trying to homogenize these differences until everyone is the same, we are destroying our heritage, not only as what...

Re: "People Are Idiots"

I think that the lack of personal responsibility that is taught to children these days as a result of over-liberalization breeds a lack of desire for self-improvement. A child whose parents protect him from the consequences of his actions will never seek to change his actions, because to him there i...

Re: Men Dominate! ... Poll

I happen to LOVE Judy Bloom as an author.

Anyway, I love books no matter who they are by.

Don't judge a book by its cover/author/title.

Re: Signatures and Sexism

I for one,have noticed this for a long time. I always thought the "reverse discrimination" started in kindergarten. When i was little, I was graced with a female cousin about 2 years younger than myself. When we were old enough to play together, my father taught me the lesson that I think ...

Re: No Rest For The Wicked, Rest For The Rest?

But about the guns. I fully agree that you can have a gun, if you need it to kill animals for food, or defend against bears and so on. But in our environment, there's no need. You can kill with a hammer yes, but its main purpose is to help you nail things somewhere. You can kill with a motorsaw, bu...

Re: No Rest For The Wicked, Rest For The Rest?

On the subject of guns, I think that they are tools. I would say that almost ALL tools are lethal if used in the wrong way: a hammer can be embedded in a person's skull just as easily as a bullet, you just have to be closer. However, IMO there is no need for things like "armor-piercing bullets&...

Re: No Rest For The Wicked, Rest For The Rest?

I believe that there is absolute right and wrong. My view is that everything is either true or false: black or white. If anything ever appears to be grey, look closer and there will be small parts of black and white just close together. Like the pixels on your screen that make every color with RGB i...
