I should have thought of this before, Team America World Police. Very hot. If you wanted to know what sex between ken and barbie would be like...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P38zPRV7kY0
Angel Heart. Fantastic movie with a great twist and a great sex scene between Lisa Bonet and Mickey Rourke. Unfortunately her other gig at the time was on the saccharine Bill Cosby Show which didn't take it well and kicked her out.

All theories should be taught. They are all theories. No one was there, so how could anyone know EXACTLY what happened FOR SURE?? No one can know. I think every theory should be taught (or at least the most popular ones), have the evidence suporting each theory explained, and then have each individual decide on their own what they think happened. That way, everyone wins. Religious beliefs and scientific beliefs would all be taught, but the school wouldn't be "pressuring" students to believe a certain thing.I say teach everything and let people decide what they believe for themselves. It seems you don't understand what a scientific theory is. It is not like in general conversation where a theory is simply an idea without much supporting evidence. In science that is closer to a hypothesis. A theory is something that has gained supporting evidence. Both theories and hypothesis need to be able to provide an explanatory framework which then, and this is important, makes predictions of the sort of evidence we should look for to find support for a hypothesis or to reinforce a theory. If the evidence is contrary then the hypothesis may be rejected or the theory may need modifications. Creationism not only has garnered no supporting evidence over millennia, it also cannot provide a framework with which evidence can be sort. If something is simply magic'd up with no use for natural laws then there will be no evidence to be gained about how the natural world works... the purpose of science. We need to find another explanation for why morphological, biochemical and genetic similarities occur in life all aligning with each other, aligning with the fossil record, aligning with geology and sedimentary layers, plate tectonics, radiometric dating, etc. The framework the theory of Evolution provides does this incredibly well and is as close to a certainty that anything in science can get to. (Nothing is ever truly proved in science). If creationism is brought up in a science classroom then a competent science teacher will show why it is a ludicrous proposition. Personally I'd prefer to discuss failed scientific ideas, rather than creationism, that don't get a student defensive about some dogmatic belief system that they've invested a great deal of emotional energy and are therefore less likely to question.
I'm really horny.Fuck me please.Ohhh. Ohhh. Ohhhh.that's ten orgasms.and ... I'm not pregnant.
I saw this thread pop up in the recent posts banner. I was curious what the pledge was coming from another country, one that has no requirement to pledge any allegiance. So here's the opinion of one outsider which means of course my weight in the matter is minimal. And you may seek to correct my interpretations.The first line is a bit odd. Why pledge allegiance to a flag. It's a flag FFS, simply a way of showing what country a place or vessel or delegation or whatever represents. It has no agency. The republic does have agency so it makes a more sense to pledge allegiance there so I'd say get rid of the 'to the flag' bit.The under god has no place in a secular state. If it's not a requirement to believe in god to be a citizen then it shouldn't be in there.What does it mean for a country to be indivisible? In what way. In believe systems? - everyone has to believe the same thing, plainly that's not the case and not possible. In government? - everyone has to support the government regardless of what things they are doing you may disagree with - that's a bit totalitarian and against the ethos of the US I would have thought(well outwardly at least). In jurisdiction? - I guess by definition the US is a defined entity that is indivisible as a country, so that's a truism... but only if you ignore the vastly different laws governing each of the many states. Justice for all is great. That basically just means that people should get treated equally and fairly under the law, though I'd suggest that it's an ideal that is not met reliably - but then it isn't in any country really. Liberty for all is a little more nuanced though, it's not as if you can do whatever you want where ever you want, without respect to others and the laws of the state.What does pledging allegiance really mean or require? To simply abide by the nations laws? Wouldn't it be better to simply promise to abide by the law. Should I back my country up even if I think they're doing something that I strongly disagree with. Some mention it as a way of showing pride in your country, but I don't even no what that means. Here, in Australia, I love so many aspects of where I live. The natural beauty, the fact that as a country we tend to have a better quality of life than most, the character of the people. Although I love it I also understand that it's simply through happenstance that I was born here and if born somewhere else would have developed some similar feelings for that place (even if I wanted to get out because of problems within the state) so it's no reason for some silly swelling pride. On the last point, character of the people, one thing that irks me is this overt nationalism that has taken over the country over the last couple of decades, moving us seemingly more towards the US. This started in our bicentennial year it seems, and it's vacuousness and danger no better illustrated by the trashing of some beautiful places, or race riots that have occurred on the national celebration day. Unfortunately such pride is so often accompanied by belligerence and arrogance.I find these sort of pledges and icons (such as flags) to be apparently profound on the surface but under analyses fall over. What has been termed a deepity by some. It's a great way to get people to not really think about things and to act as sheep. I expect to be told to piss off, it's not your country, and perhaps fair call - but I hope I've flavoured the discussion with an outsiders view, stepping back and viewing from afar.
I definitely don't like it in me. I try to get it out of me at every available opportunity.
