Re: Hey ya, Let me tell ya about myself

Neither, I'll take an M1A Garand thank you very much. One of the .308s. Much better bullet for taking out medium to large animals, and you're more likely to hit it lethally.

Re: UFOs

Look up Alcubierre Warp Theory. FTL travel is theoretically possible if we learn to harness the effects. The only question is will we be able to generate the energy needed, which if we learn to use...

Re: No Child Left Behind (Public Law 107-110)

It's the US fucking Government. Unless it reintroduced the programs focusing on the sciences from the 50's and very early 60's, anything it does for education will either be inefficient and succeed...

Re: Homosexuality. An Epidemic?

Pittie, Clinton is the same fuckwad who gave us DADT(Don't Ask, Don't Tell), which is just fucking horrible as a policy and has led to quite a few nightmarish situations for the US military. As to...

Re: Feminism...

Ever watch Serenity? Males have as I noted a greater amount of aggressiveness. This directly tranlates into drive to succeed. Don't believe me? Take any random 5 NBA games and 5 WNBA games. Watch...

Re: Feminism...

Nope. For one, given the different hormonal balances between men and women, they are bound to affect the way our brains work, but even then, the structure is not by any means the same. For one, the...

Re: Navy Test-Fires New "Exploseiveless" Gun

Until we gain the materials science to mass produce superconducting substances at room temperature, coilguns will radiate heat like no other. As such, railguns are a much more attractive option.

Re: Feminism...

Re: Feminism...

*chuckles* The dynamic behind this phenomenon is interesting, but for a large majority of it explainable beyond sexism. If one were to screen out all the women who choose to have children while still...

Re: internet porn or softcore movie?

Kaspersky is one of if not the best for pay AV software out there, although their anti-spyware stuff still misses stuff that SpyBot S&D catches. Gets a lot more than AdAware though. AVG is the best...

Re: What brand?

Re: Israel

You'll note that the article defines children as individuals under the age of 18. I already noted that such is not the case. It's actually extremely similar to gang deaths in the US. A lot of the...

Re: Israel

So you are advocating that the Israelis deliberately target males over the age of 13. I want to get this straight. Because if you are advocating that then you are point blank accusing the IDF of...

Re: The highly anticipated 2008 election

*blinks* Clearly neither math or the US economic system is your strong suit. Item number 1. Given that the top 50% of income earners pay 96.93% of income taxes, and the top 1% pay 39.38% of income...
