Topic Congrats, gun lovers, you've done it again
01 May 2013 15:57
I'm wondering if any of you can defend learning a 5 year old not only to use a weapon, but also giving it to him/her. The US has always had strange laws to me; at 16 some states think you're responsible enough to drive, however don't you dare trying to get into someone's pants until you're 18. At 18 you're responsible enough to vote, but still not responsible enough to have a drink(legally). But even though they think you have to wait until you're 21 to drink, they think it's perfectly ok that there are weapons manufactured meant to be given to young children! How the hell can anyone say that "oh this is all the parents fault" when there are actually guns manufactured to suit children?
In this particular case, sure, parents are to blame and maybe they're all already being punished enough, and that's not I want to discuss. I'm wondering if you lot think something is very much wrong in the US when they give guns to 5 yo's. I think it is not just wrong, I think it's so fucked up that they flew by the line in the sand at ultrasonic speed.

I haven't even got warmed up yet. If you come on here asking questions that are barely concealed hatred for half of the human race you have to expect some of us to take offence. My opinion of your question is that it reeks of misogyny. I have no idea why you hate women, and no desire to know. It will be enough for me that you go away and stay away. I hope you do.
Jesus Christ. I agree it's a really stupid question, but I can't say I see a shitload of hatred towards women along those that consider women on their periods as unclean. He's just asking a stupid and somewhat funny question, in the same genre as "if you had to choose for the rest of your life, which hand would you wank with".

Of course looks matter. Imagine you spending the rest of your life with someone. Are you saying you have no problem waking up every morning to a person that disgust you physically?
But, as has been stated, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Maybe you want one of those gym fanatics or you want an average build guy or you find fat guys attractive. It's all in YOUR preference. We all have a type that we are attracted to.

Topic RIP Margaret Thatcher
13 Apr 2013 20:55
Look, I know that this is a topical debate.... which I have had over the past couple of days but my feeling is this: She was a strong woman who believed in what she did, didn't sway like the wind, like other politicians, probably didn't take advice either, which was apparently her downfall, however, she had more conviction then 99% of the crowd that are there now and will bend to whatever tune they think will benefit them. In fairness, how many people will talk about the politicians that are in power now after they are dead? They don't have any conviction... Right or wrong! Just my opinion, and I know won't suti a lot of people. The woman is gone now and what will be will be.
I could say the same about Hitler, Stalin, Saddam Hussein, Franco and many other dictators that have caused very little but grief. Just because she was a strong politician while the current ones have the spines of jellyfish, doesn't mean that we should join the hail train.

I bet people working at McDonald's have more intellect than your monkeys. "You have a problem?

Certain things are not mutuall exclusive in this. I'm quite sure that somewhere between 20-60%(that's 1-3% of all) fit in either obese/overweight, african american etc classes. I'm quite sure that there are several bi black women and lesbians too. Probably a few obese women that are too busy with their careers and/or are out of the dating game due to bad experiences. So I doubt there's just one woman left for you. Your interpretation of the statisics is quite ludicrous.

The one from LELO was great:
In less than 1 minute the world’s first and only luxury DIY sex toy can be put together, and it’s sure to take the meaning of do-it-yourself pleasure to a whole new level!
Coinciding with LELO’s 10th anniversary, the brand’s new Pleasure Object, GӒSM, is the world’s first IKEA-style vibrator that is recharged by manual hand-crank technology. 100% eco-friendly, fully-waterproof, and ultra-powerful with 10 speeds, the GӒSM personal massager can be assembled by customer’s in the privacy and comfort of their own home.
And just as Swedish brand IKEA revolutionized the furniture industry with its innovative DIY products, LELO has tapped into its Swedish roots and applied the same creativity and expertise to create its very own DIY Pleasure Object.
Here a few of the many reasons why GӒSM will revolutionize the industry:
- 100% eco-friendly
Crafted from 100% recycled materials, its frame is made of durable compressed wood pulp, and a silky-smooth sheathe made entirely of re-purposed rubber.
- Manual hand-crank rechargeable battery
The long-lasting battery integrates manual, rotation, hand-crank technology (Allen key included) for 100% environmental-friendly recharging
- Revolutionary presentation for lower costs
GӒSM’s DIY assembly makes possible LELO’s new flat-pack boxes – traditionally use for self-assemble furniture – passing the packaging and shipping costs saved directly to consumers.
GӒSM can be put together in as little as 1 minute, according to consumer testing respondents who claimed they are “not very good” at completing puzzles.
GӒSM is only available through April 1st, so if you would like more information please feel free to get in touch. Hope all is well, and I look forward to hearing back from you soon.
I'm enjoying the irony that you'll end up with a sex toy that lacks a few screws to be complete and functional....

I read that one county were only going to do this against people who had the funds to pay for their stay.
On one side it's not all that bad of an idea. Let the Lindsay Lohans and other rich people who can afford it pay for their prison sentence so that the tax payers don't have to pay for it. If it was for everyone then those without means would end up with lots of debt and all that follows. E.g. serving a five year sentence for something like burglary would end up costing you 91 K given that it's 50 bucks a day. Problem is that only the richest will hav ethe money for this, and sadly many of the rich don't get caught. Apart from the 10 day type prison sentences very few will afford to pay, simply because they won't have any form of income. They could take possession of the property, but what's the point of a 10 year prison sentence if they're gonna be homeless afterwards? Then you'll have repeat offenders because they can't get a job and have to do crimes to survive. To some degree it's counter productive.
Although my main question is if it's actually legal. It's a double punishment that is added outside of court. Just waiting for some filthy rich guy to bring this practice to court.

Topic Should the sex offender registry laws be changed?
25 Mar 2013 01:05
these public sex offenders registries are in my view ridicilous, but maybe that's because I have a different view on prison than many others. To me prison is all about rehabilitation and also that when you have done your time, you're done. Sure, you shouldn't be allowed to work in certain professions depending on your crime, i.e. people arrested for child molesting shouldn't be allowed to work with children, but they way they tend to get hounded down and harassed by people is typical vigilante thing that modern society can do without. This goes especially since there are rape convictions that are dubious at best, i.e. the girl was drunk and tagged along, but guy still gets convicted because she regrets it and spins a story.
You shouldn't have to register. I think it's ludicrious. If you have a job where there's no risk of being a repeat offender, then let the person live their life in peace.
Topic North Korea
25 Mar 2013 00:57
Fucking with Iceland is a bad idea. Iceland is a member of NATO and in the event of an attack they'll just call paragraph 5 and suddenly you have all of NATO bombing the shit out of North Korea as well as South Korea joining in. No matter who North Korea attacks, South Korea will join in, because it's in their own interest to strike an aggressive North down. Even if China attacks you might risk an invasion from the South. They're geniuinly afraid a fuse will blow in Kim Il's head and even if their nukes are unrealiable, a nuclear attack on SK soil will be devestating.

Topic Over 100 Shooting Deaths (U.S.) and counting Since Sandy Hook. Updated to 12/21/2012 @7 pm EST
25 Mar 2013 00:19
If that's the case, why is it that the only weapons used to carry out the deadliest mass killing of civilians ever undertaken on American soil were box cutters? And the only weapons used in the second and third deadliest we're homemade bombs?
Because those aren't crimes of opportunity or planned events with easily obtainable materials. Why are there so few bombing incidents? Because it's difficult to get it right if you want a large death toll and you have to do a lot of heavy planning if you're gonna go thorugh with a hijacking of a plane or building a large bomb. Usually the shooting sprees are grabbing a gun they have in the closet or pop down to the local shop and buy it like it's a carton of milk and then go out shooting.
Also, you dragging in acts of terrorism in this debate shows that you struggle to come up with reasonable arguments for your view.

Screw the Abrams tank. Get a British Challenger II or a Leopard II. The British Challenger II had a better kill to death ratio against other tanks in Iraq than the Abrams and the Leopard II simply because the Germans make it. No offence to American quality, but Germans are far superior when it comes to producing reliable mechanical equipment.
Topic Monitoring the Internet

Actually, the problem I had with the podcast was on my computer, which I was using to access my college's Wi-Fi, and I couldn't find anyone to talk to about it. I realize this is their network, but it is my system. I think part of the concern is the fact that some of these computers and networks are ours as taxpayers. (Public libraries, public universities, etc.) I can understand if a privately-funded entity wants to block their computers from accessing certain sites; that is their decision.?
First, the system thing; some network admins shut you down is because you might be having programs that are affiliated with malware or any other kind of non-happy programs. Basically, they do that to protect the rest of the computers that are part of the network. Or maybe you had a torrent client running and they shut you down because of that.
Which leads me to the second part; do you really think it's ok that your and other people's tax money are spent on people browsing for porn and downloading programs/music/movies etc.
Topic Monitoring the Internet
17 Mar 2013 18:00
Why should they not put these softwares in? It's not YOUR computer, you're just allowed to borrow it. It's not your network and so forth, and usually the universities either set the blocked sites on their own list(I can acess Lush on my Uni network) or you can get certain sites removed. It's not your computer so it's not your god given right to choose what sites you should go to. Sorry, but you're not getting any sympathy from me on this one. If the programs are shite then sure, let them be changed, but I don't think you have the right to complain about them making sure you don't spend your time at school surfing for porn.
Topic Food for thought, desert for discussion: Religion
10 Mar 2013 10:02
I would say it's the Sunk Costs Fallacy. People have already spend years investing so much into their religion. If it's not true, that's all wasted, and people would rather keep pumping resources in, hoping it'll be true, then admit it's false, cut their losses, and start a new, more produce, life.
See what you did there? This is very typical from atheists that they raise above people with faith, speak of themselves as the enlightened ones and better people. In my experience the tension when it comes to people of different faith it's usually instigated by atheists. Like Clum said, I've had no problems with religious discussions with people who share my faith nor people who have different faith from me. It's more the atheists that act condencending and do what they can to subtly insulting the one with faith. They usually prove to be just as tolerant as the radical ones yelling that unbelievers will burn in hell. I like calling them "atheistic jihadist"

Topic Should obese people be classified as disabled?
05 Mar 2013 03:40
The reasons for obesity can be a shitload of different ones, as Trinket noted above. A certain type of medication may suddenly cause you to start eating a whole lot more, believe me I've been there. And saying that it all can be solved by diet and excercise is bullocks. If you've been fat for a long time then your body has suddenly decided to change it's standard settings of weight and bodyfat to being obese. That means that if you try to work it off through the whole diet and excercise thing it's a good chance it won't work. End result is that they either need the surgery or they need one of those "Biggest Loser" type of excercise regimes, and how many can afford that?
What's equally disturbing is that in many cases, especially for families, you'll find that the less healthy groceries are cheaper than the more healthy ones. In the current economic climate where many people have to tighten the belt a bit, the less healthy one suddenly becomes a choice of necessity, not what they want.
So next time you chew your carrot and decide to judge anyone that you think isn't as worthy as you, smack yourself in the face for me and try to understand that the world isn't black and white. That it isn't as easy as you'd like it to be and that just because obesity is DIRECTLY caused by medical conditions in 10% of the cases, doesn't mean that 90% of the world's obese people are that way just because they love fast food.
