    PDAs - Why?

    I think some public displays are okay, but others need to be done in private. It's okay to kiss, hug, and all that stuff in public, but nobody wants to see you reach second base. That's just awkward to see. Go home for that stuff, or at least find a nearby bathroom.

    Post Counts Return, eh?

    It's weird enough that my name has "Senior Member" under it, as if I'm some old retiree who only started showing up again because he's collecting his social security/pension. Now everyone can see I have--- God Only Knows How Many posts. --EDIT-- 1,700+ posts? Really?

    Put Down That Sea Kitten You Monster!

    I imagine the term "Fresh Water Sea Kittens" being used, which would be a term just stupid enough for PETA to actually use.

    Put Down That Sea Kitten You Monster!

    [quote name='Tophel']Well, actually, if you're talking modern day lifespans of 80+ yrs, meat is actually not good for you. Certainly not on a daily basis. Humans can eat meat yes but we were never really carnivores. If you look at our digestive system and especially our teeth we are more vegetarian than carnivore. Meat, in particular, red meat is a booster. So when we had lifespans of 40+ yrs (which was only until a couple of centuries ago), the protein in meat provided easy and quick energy. It also helps a little with brain development. But as you age the consequences of eating meat build up and the negative begins to outweigh the positive. Which is why nutritionists normally recommend eating red meat only about 3 times a week. Anyway, the short of it is that meat, in this modern urban age does not really have 'health benefits'. Generally speaking, provided you do it reasonably and sensibly, being a vegetarian is better for you than being a steak-a-day or even 3-steaks-a-week carnivore. But all of this is moot because most people separate fish meat from red meat. The most unhealthy is red meat followed by fowl followed by fish. Sea kittens are actually good for you. :animesmil[/QUOTE] I'm not going to sit here and deny that we need vegetables, could survive on veggies alone, or we'd die if we tried to eat meat alone. I know all that stuff. Thing is, you're presenting your argument as if I'm saying there are benefits to eating [i]only[/i] red meat everyday. Nobody does that. Everybody eats vegetables. People eat meats other than steak. There [i]are[/i] health benefits to eating meat. They provide the body with plenty of protein, and chicken is an excellent source of niacin. That's my whole point. Meat has health benefits. All you did was tell me that it's bad to eat steak too many times a week. I know that. Now find me the nutritionist who says it's dangerous to eat chicken more than 3 times a week (by the way, niacin is known to regulate insulin levels and cholesterol) as well as any & all other meats, and you'll have proven me wrong.

    TV [The New] Doctor Who

    A Doctor with a weird face isn't a bad thing. We're talking about a role once played by Tom Baker, and while his smooth English voice could turn a straight man gay, he was far from a pretty boy like Tennant. Heck, Eccleston was far from a pretty boy like Tenant.

    But you don't understand! Everyone on Earth should be a vegan, all milk should be soy, and we should get all of our proteins from peanuts and sunflower seeds! Nevermind the natural order! Eating fish is [i]mean[/i]. By the way, I was being totally facetious. Look, there are some fish out there that are getting overfished into "endangered" territory, and I agree that we should all ease up on the anchovies and certain kinds of tuna. And if you're a vegan or vegetarian, all the power to you. However, I'm not going to deny my natural instinct to eat meats and fishes (especially considering their health benefits) just because killing animals for the purpose of ingestion is less than kind. Furthermore, "sea kittens"? [i]Really?[/i]

    I already eat [i]catfish[/i]. "Sea kitten" isn't going to deter me in the least.

    Gaming Teen convicted of killing mom

    Like Chris Rock said, "What happened to crazy?" There was a time when a kid would snap and kill his whole family, and they'd say the kid was simply off his rocker, then lock him up. Now they want to blame the heavy metal music, the violent video games, the action movies, and the boobs on the Super Bowl. The ironic part here is that he killed his mom because supposedly his parents [i]wouldn't let him play[/i] the violent video game.

    Gaming Chrono Trigger

    One year later, and Chrono Trigger has been rereleased on the DS! I just got the game this Christmas as a gift for myself, and have been playing it in my spare time. I haven't played Chrono Trigger is [i]years[/i], and I'm glad to see the Playstation's animated cutscenes have also been ported over. I played the classic SNES version, so I'd never seen the videos before. This game is just as fun as I remember it, but I still found myself making the exact same mistake I made back then: I couldn't save Lucca's mom from the lab accident. Once again, that's a mistake I'll have to rectify during New Game +.

    Sight and Sound?

    *returns from obscurity* Any name is better than its old 'Music, Movies & TV' name. If Amphitheater is too much (and after typing it just now, I agree), why not just The Theatre?

    GodHatesGoths.com

    Oh, this website is just too hilarious. Their quotes from "real people" in the [i]Your Children Are Lying To You[/i] section are pure gold. [quote]"There was a Goth kid in my class, and there was this story going around school that he raped a cat. I'm not sure if it was true, but after what you just told me I’d imagine it probably was. These Goths are sick!" – Brandon Winchester, 17[/quote] [quote]"It's like Sodom and Gomorrah all over again, but with drugs. I heard that they sacrifice babies on the dance floor, and that's why they wear "PVC", because the blood wipes off more easily." – Janet Majors, 19[/quote] [quote]"I dated a Goth chick once. Her vagina stank of rotten garbage. It was awful. Do all Goths have bad personal hygiene? It was disgusting. I wore 100 condoms but she still gave me AIDS!" – Charles Munroe, 21[/quote]

    Atheists Send a Message, on 800 Buses

    [quote name='Allamorph'][FONT=Arial]Actually, no, because she refuses to believe in [I]anything[/I], as she's told me several times herself. If I remember correctly, she does so because she sees blatant hypocrisy and arrogance in any and all courts, and wants none of it. Close enough, Vic? Been awhile since the last time we chatted about that subject.[/FONT][/QUOTE] Right, that's good, except I didn't ask if she believed in [i]anything[/i]. I asked if it was ironic to not believe in anything, yet still liken those lack of beliefs to symbols of belief. Maybe we're just not understanding each other.

    Atheists Send a Message, on 800 Buses

    [quote name='Vicky'][size=1]I have not read all that has already been said but... ...I wear my Atheism like a cross. So kudos to these guys, and a lot more, at that. The slogans on my shirt cause uproar and silly little comments. But like I said, I were my atheism like a cross. And everyone else like me should wear it as such.[/size][/QUOTE] Isn't presenting your lack of religious beliefs in a manner akin to a religious symbol a bit... ironic?
