  1. [quote name='Raiha'][COLOR="DarkOrchid"][FONT="Times New Roman"]I thought it was A track. .....or maybe my dad was lying to me this whole time. I remember vinyl records too, although those are popular again with DJs and other music enthusiasts. It's just like tight pants suddenly becoming cool again after the 70s.[/FONT][/COLOR][/QUOTE]He might have called them that, but this is what they are: [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereo_8"][U]8 track[/U][/URL] Since it's what we had when I was a little girl, I remember them clearly. I actually still have all of my records and a player fo
  2. [quote name='Lunar;821361][COLOR="Indigo"][FONT="Book Antiqua"] I think they're going to put something on there that's going to change the way Americans think and therefore change something in the U.S. that's just a theory, though. What do you think?[/FONT][/COLOR][/QUOTE]No more than how they changed how Americans listen to and store music by dropping 8-track in favor of cassette tapes and then dropping that in favor of CD's. No more than dropping black and white in favor of color television and computers. Switching from analog to digital is only going to open things up for more options and t
  3. For some reason, this one seems oddly appropriate today. [CENTER][IMG]http://images.icanhascheezburger.com/completestore/2008/9/10/interestingif128655618237863031.jpg[/IMG][/CENTER]
  4. My daughter is a member here, so I simply tagged on the _Mom at the end since I am Aaryanna's mom. I didn't even think of using my real name Kathy or anything else. I wouldn't know what to use for a user name really so I just stuck with what I am.
  5. [quote name='The13thMan'][FONT="Trebuchet MS"]I just like to give ya'll crap. Feel free to throw some back at me time and time again. [/FONT][/QUOTE]And you wonder why many of us don't take you seriously at all. :rolleyes: Anyway, in general I don't object to the idea. I've always been one to believe that using our intelligence to figure things out is part of the learning process of being on Earth in the first place. What we do with said knowledge is another story. I may from a religious standpoint not agree with the obvious uses for gay and lesbian couples, but at the same time, I also a
  6. [quote name='The13thMan;821242][FONT="Trebuchet MS"]If my post is so rife of fallacious logic then please point it out. Otherwise i will not and cannot debate with you anymore. If i did, it would be just as one sided as getting down on my knees by my bed and praying to the good lord himself. And we both know i don't waste my time with [I][U]that[/U][/I]. [/FONT][/QUOTE]Your statement that I refuted was this:[quote name='The13thMan'][FONT="Trebuchet MS"']I mean... the christian faith has been around for 2000 years and there still has been very little change. And really, the change only seems to
  7. [quote name='The13thMan'][FONT="Trebuchet MS"][CENTER]Insert stuff here.[/CENTER][/FONT][/QUOTE]I don't intend to really reply to your post and this obvious problem with your logic that really isn't logic explains it: Religion hasn't changed in 2000 years according to your post. Interesting to know that you understand ALL religions well enough to be able to state that. For starters, witch hunts and crusades are in the past. The Salem witch trials no longer happen. Women not only have the right to vote, they often do more than their husbands do and can even hold political positions of
  8. [quote name='Retribution'][font=Arial]The reason I pick on the (specifically) Catholic/Evangelical refusal to distribute contraception or talk of the benefits of contraception is because it runs counter to Christian values. Rather than protest out of principle while hundreds of thousands of people become infected everyday, distribute condoms in Africa. Not only does it help preserve family structures, it allows countries to get back on their feet, it reduces human suffering, and it is certainly a component to economic strength. You can say "Christians should stick to their guns!" but tha
  9. In all honesty, after so many times of hearing how the "latest" research has the potential to destroy the world, you start to tune it out. Not that I don't find this interesting and all that, it's just not the first time I've heard it. Plus, based on my limited understand of this project, it's not going to happen, or rather it's almost beyond unlikely. I do think it's a nifty idea though. I was kind of disappointed when the one being built here in the US back in the 90's fell through. So I'm glad to see it finally being done.

After what they had seen on the space station, it was important that no one realize they had been missing at all. But for them to have gone missing and for no one to even notice was alarming. She really wished she could complain to the Captain over that. It was unbelievably irresponsible in her mind. It didn?t take her long to get to the Casino, even with the usual press of people going about their business
  11. [quote name='Desbreko'][color=#4B0082]Just to provide a bit of clarification about the old record, that number was about 90% Google spiders and other bots that were crawling the site at the time. It wasn't anywhere close to 3,000 actual people online at once.[/color][/QUOTE]Do you know the actual number of people then? It would be interesting to try and break that record if you know what it was. ;) I also agree with making it noon for pacific time and 3pm for Eastern. Makes it easier for those who enjoy sleeping in on their weekends.

  13. [quote name='Raiha'][COLOR="DarkOrchid"][FONT="Times New Roman"]This may come as a shock to some, but teen pregnancy statistics are actually declining for a change. Whether this is due to Clinton, Bush, the previous Bush, Reagan, or those who came before, nobody can honestly say. It's a murky issue, and not one that I'll let you get by with casually passing off on Bush as so many today are wont to do. Don't believe me about the statistics? Just google "teen pregnancy decline." And then go look yourself. The first two links are rather informative. [/FONT][/COLOR][/QUOTE]Try googling Teen
  14. Oh definitely. Kids are like that when it comes to baths. And speaking of kids, this is how Aaryanna was and still is. She's the one who loves school. [CENTER][B]Aaryanna[/B] [IMG]http://images.icanhascheezburger.com/completestore/2008/9/3/izgotoskool128649057663286468.jpg[/IMG][/CENTER]
  15. I've always though the argument over Barbie or any other Doll somehow turning our children into needy girls/boys suffering from poor self esteem was a bit of a stretch. The biggest influence, in my opinion, is a child's parents. I don't even know how to properly explain it really. I do know that I don't consider one worse than the other. If you haven't taken the time to explain to your kids that they're not real in any sense of the world, then you've failed as a parent. It's not that hard to simply not buy such things for your kids if you really think it would be harmful. So if any
  16. [quote name='James'][font=franklin gothic medium]Okay so I just want to find out who is still able to post in this thing. We are starting to near the end and it'd really be great to finish it if possible. I just want to check in to see who is still interested and who isn't. If not enough people are interested in keeping this going then I may end it slightly earlier. :catgirl:[/font][/QUOTE]I'm still interested. I always have been, I just had health and personal things going on in my life for a while there. Things have settled back down, it's just been a case of getting back into things
  17. Since the war had begun sometimes James felt like he never got any sleep. If he had been busy before with leading the Elite Specialists & Task Forces, it was hard to see it after nearly a year of dealing with the war. There was never a day when he didn?t spend every waking moment dealing with more paperwork than any person should see in a lifetime. He had barely finished up with the newest reports when the chime indicating someone was just outside his office door at the Council Center sounded. A quick glance showed that it was his aide. James stifled the urge to sigh and issued the comma
  18. [B]What level of education are you at? Highschool, college?[/B] I am past school, though technically you could have said I was a sophomore in college before I withdrew for health reasons. [B] What's your favorite subject, or if you're in college, what's your major? [/B] Music has always been one of my favorite things to study about or learn or teach. I am disabled but I am still able to work a little in what would have been my chosen field since I teach piano and organ lessons. [B]What's your ideal job along the field you are studying? I'm looking for more realistic answers.[/B]
  19. Like many others have stated, I have no interest in knowing when or how I'm going to die. I can't change it so I just don't see a point in actually knowing it. I think I'll just enjoy life and be glad I don't have to worry about something like that.
  20. [quote name='Sabrina'][FONT="Tahoma"]I know the feeling. Some of my friends and I got the idea to have a picnic and had to cancel it since it decided to hail and storm most of the day. The type of storm that soaks you completely. Usually around here it rains briefly and ends, but not yesterday. We ended up with flash flood warnings and all that. o_O Oh well, guess we'll have to try for another day. Hehe. [/FONT][/QUOTE]We had the same issue down here as well. However, since we didn't have an outside barbecue planned, it was easy enough to move things inside. It was kind of hard to be disappoin
  21. Well at least you haven't been offline for over a month. Family drama does that to you I'm afraid. However I do intend to try and get back into things. I just got caught up on what I missed since I'd like to see this come to an end. We've come too far to let it fizzle when we are so close. So I'll work on getting something up this week too. :catgirl: [B]EDIT:[/B] A little delayed, but I finally got that up. Oh and though I already told you via AIM, very nifty idea with the base Allamorph. Just as I enjoyed the bit with the transport door for the ship earlier.
  22. [quote name='Sabrina'][FONT="Tahoma"]I'm sure many of you have noticed that we have this event running in the event center: [URL="http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?t=59315"][U]OtakuBingo![/U][/URL] It looks like fun and yet I've discovered that unless someone mentions it in their posts or profiles you can't see what country they are from. So that got me wondering if we really do have people visiting here from ten different countries. [/FONT][/QUOTE]Personally this makes me think that Shy would have been better off making a slot of... find members from ten different states/countries. A
  23. I'm fine with Intelligent Design, within reason. It's one thing to present it on a religious basis and yet another to attempt to stuff it into science classes. It has no business being taught there. I also have no issues with evolution either. But then I've always been of the mind that if someone like God really does exist... they would be smart enough to take advantage of how things work instead of wasting their time by "mirco-managing" everything.
  24. You're image for me is spot on Darren. I could and would so do that. Anyway, if you take the FQFG rpg that ran last year into account... this one is Gavin. ;) [CENTER][B]Gavin[/B] [IMG]http://icanhascheezburger.files.wordpress.com/2008/03/funny-pictures-darth-vader-cat.jpg[/IMG][/CENTER]
