Re: Political Controversy: Chick-fil-A - Fast Food Restauran

Re: Political Controversy: Chick-fil-A - Fast Food Restauran

YOU should answer my question in the "ask me anything" thread, Fat Man. I don't know who else will! :lol:

(Note: I'm not laughing at you. I'm laughing sardonically at how fucked America is. Recently I asked a question in the same spirit as your above post.)

Re: Introductions

Sports are harmless, they are a nice distraction, and provide not only a means of revenue to many colleges, but provide for free college for many people who are athletically talented, but too poor to attend school. Yeah, if it weren't for sports, you might have to be academically talented to win sc...

Re: Political Controversy: Chick-fil-A - Fast Food Restauran

Yes, HugeFan, I agree with your sentiments regarding both videos. There's a considerable group of people in the United States who support gay rights and still manage to be pukes in doing so -- some of whom are Libertarians, some of whom are just rich insensitive liberals, and all of whom annoy the h...

Re: June 17 Father's Day, Don't Make Your Wife A Football Wi

Yes, real men do cook! In fact, cooking was invented by men over 150,000 years ago when our ancestors were hunters and gatherers. The women would go into the forest to gather herbs, roots, and berries, and wild fruit, while the men would go out hunting for the meat, and the men would build the fire...

Re: Question about homosexuality

Another thing worth noting is that whether a behavior or set of behaviors represents a "disorder" has little to whether it will stop a person from reproducing or not. (According to Wikipedia :) ). Mostly, "disorders" are sets of behaviors that are considered abnormal within the one's culture. And I ...

Re: Question about homosexuality

3.2 is pretty good. Anything above 3.0 is considered good for an undergrad at an AAU school. Another thing people look for when judging how well a student did is what his GPA was within his major. If Spanish isn't part of your major, then your GPA for this year is actually higher than 3.2 in courses...

Re: I Just Changed My Avatar! Photo Of Me With Telescope.

Awesome!

I think the new photo is cooler, because it makes you look like some kind of wise old scientist.

The old one looked like someone itching for a fight.

The following article was written by George Orwell (Author of fiction novel, 1984) back in 1945, and it appears the very little has changed since then, if anything, it has actually gotten even worse. http://orwell.ru/library/articles/spirit/english/e_spirit ...

Re: Sports Culture Or Sports Cult?

I'm saddened by the level of personal animosity in these exchanges. There comes a point when it no longer matters who started it. When both of you resort to personal insults, you risk becoming mirror images of each other. It's more like Fat Man is walking through a hall of mirrors. Fit Man was alre...

Re: Calculus teaching ideas

Well, I don't know Mrs. Earl, the geekiness in that video was a little concentrated for me at times... But I liked the part where they were talking about the limit not existing at x = 0 for f(x) = 1/x. (It's too bad i_like_1981 couldn't have seen that video. He liked math, too, and I think I recall ...
