Topic Another completely unnecessary law.
Posted 16 May 2012 03:25

Of course it gives a nagging feeling, and it's honestly quite retarded that such a law should be necessary. I disagree with it, but just playing the devil's advocate to point out it's not just removing your freedom one step at the time.

Hopefully it will be one of those laws that they don't go looking for infringers, but more the type where people become aware of it and don't walk while texting because they don't wanna get fined. Besides, idiots will always find a way to get themselves killed.

Topic factory farms
Posted 14 May 2012 18:02

It is simple. If you want cheap food then factory farms is the way to go. The quality will be lower, but there will be a larger production at a lower cost. If you want the typical family farm that has less of a factory look to it, then you're gonna have to pay.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I grew up on a farm, and being a farmer isn't a job. It's a lifestyle. It's not a job that you can leave at 4 in the afternoon and then head home to your appartment and do whatever it is you do. People aren't really aware of all the time that a farmer spends on tending to the animals, because it's not just dump some food in front of them and that's that, especially when it comes to the family style farm, because they are usually a whole lot more manual labour than automatic, simply because if you're gonna go more automatic in the feeding, milking and so forth of the animals the investments required to make it profitable are so huge that you have to go closer to the factory farm.

The prices you pay at the farmers market that you think are so expensive isn't necessarily because the farmer is a greedy fucker, it's because the farmer actually has to make a profit and for the farmer that runs the family style farm to make a living the prices has to be at the range they are. It's the standard businessmodel that you find in any company in the world.

People want the free range eggs, organic food and all that other crap, but when they realise what it actually costs they start complaining. It's the typical modern hypocrachy; we want the best and most ethical kind of food, but we're really not that willing to pay for it.

Topic Another completely unnecessary law.
Posted 14 May 2012 17:34

I'm gonna play the devil's advocate here and say why this law is a good thing

Ignoring the social darwinisim, then let's say that one of the "textwalkers" walk straight out into the road, get hit by a car and then it's over quicker than you can type LOL to your friend. The idiot is dead and won't be texting no more. But what about the driver? It's easy for us to sit here and say "Now now, it wasn't your fault", but newsflash; human phsyce doesn't work that way. How many soldiers haven't come home from war scarred by what they saw? No one suggests kicking veteran soldiers with PTSD in the ass and go "Too bad you didn't like it, son. That's war and all your friends died because they didn't remember their training or they just weren't good enough". So this law pretty much protects those who are innocent, which laws should do. Besides, add the pressure someone paralyzed puts on society in terms of loss of tax income, money spent on different things and so forth.

I'm not saying that it's a good law, but think about this; how many times have you been in such a hurry that you couldn't stop the necessary 30 seconds to type the text before walking on?

I would assume that your sucess is based on what kind of work you get involved in. Of course a good seller won't need the same level of IQ as a mathematician or engineer, same way you don't have to be a people person to solve equations.

Besides, what's the definition of sucess? If I'm in a job that I love and I earn 500 K NOK a year, am I then less sucessful than my supervisor that hates his job but earns 1 million?

Topic Fed clears China's first US bank takeover
Posted 11 May 2012 05:11

China can do a lot by just using the same governance they have now; dictatorship. It will allow them to strike down on workers much more efficiently than what any western democracy. The working class is a powerful force, but when faced with a ruthless government that is more than keen on keeping status quo then they're pretty much screwed. Add the millions of people living in the rural areas that would love if a factory came to their area you can keep the costs down. The only thing they have to worry about are foreign customers who gives a damn about human rights before caring about profits. Usually most companies are willing to turn two blind eyes to bad environment as long as profits increase.

Prayers in school should not only be allowed ,it should be mandatory. Since I live in a country where church and state is not separate(the constitution says that the king/queen must be a protestant) it's only sensible to raise our children in the good Christian faith. It's not indoctrination, it's just teaching the kids good values and to give thanks for the good life they have. Our society is built upon Christian values and our children should learn them.

Topic Fed clears China's first US bank takeover
Posted 10 May 2012 04:57

Doubt you can call it the first step. China has already been investing heavily in Africa, like Sudan, and working on the Middle East. They already have interests in Europe and it's only sensible from an economic perspective that they establish themselves in the Americas. If you want the globalised free market then it goes both ways. You can't go on about how other countries should open their borders for American goods and wares and then refuse Chinese banks to buy themselves in US ones.

It's capitalism in all it's glory, and when the US banks needs aid China will see the opportunity to establish themselves in the world's largest economy. With the growth that China has had the last years it was only a question of time.

Topic Sexual Insecurities - For Men
Posted 09 May 2012 13:23

For me it's the typical that I know it's probably not gonna be a problem, but I make a big deal out of it and worry about it in my head.

Should I in the future I know that odds are I won't get her to cum every time I stick my cock inside her, and I've sort of settled with that. But I'm still worried that I might not be able to give her an orgasm through intercourse. I know I can finger and lick her to an orgasm, but fuck her? I'm not sure about that and it's something I want to achieve.

Second thing is I hope to God she doesn't think "It was nice, but my ex was better" afterwards. I guess maybe that's why I'm a bit of a sexual doormat; I'm willing to try pretty much anything the girl wants as long as it involves the two of us and not another dude.

Topic Was 9-11 an inside job?
Posted 09 May 2012 13:10

If 9/11 was an inside job, shouldn't it now be pretty much out in the open and in the press and all that? After all, the US isn't exactly renowned for keeping secrets. Couldn't even keep their mouth shut about who gave Clinton a blowjob, so if it was an inside job I'd be expecting to have seen documents that were dumbed down to President Bush to the following phrase "We want to crash planes into buildings!" and his signature under it...

Just saying...

Not only is he making himself look like a moron who obviously wasn't first in line when common sense was handed out, but he's making FOX news look even MORE unserious and ridicilous, which in itself is an achievement. I'm willing to chip in a good buck to get a panel of Glenn Beck, Jesse Lee Peterson and a few other nutjobs like them and make sure they have a good hour of panel debate every single day on FOX news. Maybe drag in a few radical right wingers from English Defence League as well, just to give it a more international reputation. Have this going on for a few months and you'll see FOX news' credibility where it belongs; in the gutter along with their retarded views.

It's obvious that pornography stereotypes men and women and gives expectations to young when they start to discover sex themselves. It's no secret that kids discover pornography before they discover sex or even start masturbating. Men are portrayed as sex gods with huge cocks that can satisfy a woman and make her scream, just from her sucking it. It makes every man less confident about his own abilities in bed and he will consider the intercourse as a failure unless she moans and screams as in the movies. Same way with girls. They are portrayed as nothing but fuck dolls who should take it any hole the man wants and love it. Just look how the men fucks the women's mouth, smack their tits and calls them names. Is it any wonder girls these days have eating disorders when the naked women on camera are shown as bimbos and barbie dolls? Where are the intellectual conversations? Where does it show that men are attracted to girls who talk and doesn't wear miniskirts constantly?

Also, all masturbation is evil and sex should only be done when you try to have kids cussing

Topic Woman claims she can't get a job because she is overweight.
Posted 09 May 2012 07:29

Mostly being fat is a personal choice. It may be lack of self control about eating or disliking exercise but unless it is a medical condition such as a thyroid problem, then it is their own choice to be overweight.

A truth with modifications. If you've been overweight for a long time then the body considers that current weight to be it's normal weight, so if you stay 50 lbs overweight for too long then your body starts believing it should stay that way no matter what, hence losing weight becomes a lot more difficult. No, not impossible, but not everyone has the means to go to a gym. I have a cousin who have been on countless diets and excercise programs and they've had little effect. Yes, extreme obisety can be handled, we've all seen the biggest loser, but how many have the possibility to take time off from work and go to a top modern gym, have personal trainers, nutrition experts looking at every meal and constant monotoring by doctors? Some people simply doesn't have the time to go on the more extreme diets simply because they need to go to work and take care of their kids.

And when it comes to her weight being an issue I think the only way it can be an issue is a long term medical issue. Overweight people are at a bigger risk of becoming sick and may end up being gone from work, which means the employer have to hire in a short term replacement or have to push the workload over on the rest of the staff, which may cause them to be stressed and so forth. I have serious doubts that it's because they think "She's fat ergo she's lazy".

And as others pointed out, it could be that she lacks self esteem. If she seemed shy and closed up then she's less likely to be picked for the job than someone who is more open.

Topic What pisses you off about our societies?
Posted 07 May 2012 15:06

Drinking culture. Especially with teenagers and students. We don't need details, do we?

Only teenagers and students? Belive me, the over 40's and 50's are just as bad, if not worse.

Personally, I think it's the greed that'st he worst and that annoys me. People who have pretty good lives are pissed off because they have to pay taxes or do this or because the law regulates that. They don't see that they have increadibly good lives and that there are people all over the world that would switch lives with them in a heartbeat. I complain about my life, I know that the vast majority of people are worse off than me, but at least I'm capable of seeing that. There are people who believe that they are so miserable and that the world revolves around their and want people to think that the sun shines out of their ass. Fuck them.

Topic Here it is, the world's first Fat Tax!
Posted 07 May 2012 06:37

Denmark has had bad eating habits since the dawn of time. How many other countries is it considered normal to go out to lunch and have a few beers and then go back to work? The amount of obesity there is startling. Personally I think the thought behind it is a good one; make healthy food cost less than unhealthy food. Since I'm not aware of how they tax food in general in Denmark I'll just put up an example from Norway.

We pay 25% tax on pretty much everything we buy, apart from food. That's 14% tax. And that goes for any food, it be full grain bread or just a piece of fat. One store chain has made a positive move; they have lowered the cost on fruit and veggies and food items that are labelled with a green keyhole(which means that it's considered healthy) so that the price is what you would pay if there was no tax on it all. I think this is the way to go. Money rules and if you can put tax on the unhealthy stuff while having no tax on the healthy stuff you suddenly end up having cheap healthy food and more expensive unhealthy food.

I think that is a good initiative. If you're gonna choose a lifestyle that will make you fat and unhealthy and later on be an extra cost for society in terms of medical bills, then why not pay for it? I smoke and if I don't quit it will give me health problems, but I'm already paying a whole lot of tax for my tobacco and I don't have a problem with that.

It's also down to that a lot of people want to pick the healthy option for their families, but they realise that if they're gonna put food on the table every day a box of fat peanutbutter and sugerheavy jam is a lot cheaper than fish and lean meat.

In the short; healthy choices should be cheaper than unhealthy choices.

Reasons to why this article shouldn't be used as a fondation for any debate at all

1) It's in the Daily Mail. The only way it could have been a worse piece of journalism would have been if it was in The Sun

2) They've taken it from a German newspaper. Apart from the big serious newspapers, German newspapers have a fetish for scandals, bullshitting and poor journalism that makes journalists from The Sun go down on their knees offering blowjobs if they could be taught how to degrade themselves to their German collegues level.

3) A lot of shit tends to get lost in translation, especially when tabloids are involved.

Besides, isn't this debate more fitting for the Think Tank?

I just think this is some funny shit

I don't think I would like it if my girlfriend tried to go "I don't want you spending time with her." But I would make it very clear to her that she had nothing to fear from said girl.

But that said, I think that if you've been together a year it's not too demanding to want to spend New Year's eve together, and I consider it wrong by him to leave you on your own for New Year's, especially if you didn't really have any other plans. I don't know how the living situation is with the two of you, but surely he could have come hom and spent the night with you? The whole "But everyone else is sleeping over" is the reasoning you hear from a child, not a grown man.

Maybe I'm just a pushover, but I think he's in the wrong here and you have a right to be upset about it.

Germany, Netherlands, Spain and Italy. I have Croatia, Italy and France as outsiders to reach the semis, maybe along with Sweden, depending on who they meet afterwards.
