    What's the matter with us? (unprovoked assault, video)

    There are two aspects in our society that develops this evil in people. One is abuse the other is neglect. Remember these aren't excuses for this behaviour and these morons. It's just where this type of evil, and it's nothing less, comes from. Physical mental, and emotional abuse and/or neglect...

    5 reasons why income inequality is a myth and Occupy Wall Street is wrong

    Nobel prize winner and global warming

    "He is arguing that the scientific society that he belonged to stated that global warming science cannot be challenged. That is what offends him as a scientist." I would add that I don't think it's the "global warming science" that they don't want challenged but their position on global...

    Is this the same Joe Son that fought in UFC 3? the so called trainer of kimo?

    yes, he always had something extremely stupid about him... now we see why. Hope they throw away the key.

    Man dressed as ninja arrested at school

    I doubt he'll get any jail time, probably just a slap on the wrist but this Stiffler guy is pretty stupid. With all that's going on in the media, he couldn't find somewhere more private to play ninja. The guy should have thought about it, knives at school, yeah that sounds like a great idea...

    First scene from new Conan movie

    I'm actually excited about this as the ads have got me into it. Will it suck? I hope not, probably won't be the best Conan movie they could have made but I have a feeling it will be alright after seeing that clip.

    Flash Mobs and race

    Wired into them? If by this you mean it's not in their dna then no, the way people behave is mostly learned and dependent on their environment, this doesn't excuse this type of behaviour, only gives a reason for it. Compassion just like a lack of it are mostly learned.

    Just started doing Muay Thai and have huge dark bruises on my thighs..is this normal??

    See a doctor and tell him you're doing a contact sport and got this bruise, ask him to check it out and he'll give you the right advice, you should ALWAYS consult with a doc before starting any contact sport. It's probably nothing though but you should make sure for yourself. I used to get...

    Flash Mobs and race

    What about working on that environment? Isn't that what the mayor is paid to do? I'm not saying that these people who are commiting these crimes should get a pass, throw them in jail definetely, but to make the larger problem go away, you'll need alot more than blame, you'll need to improve...

    Flash Mobs and race

    I think this speech is just a case of the mayor taking the easy way out and blaming hair and tattoos instead of looking at the environment which breeds this type of behaviour and the problems that ensue. It's easy to blame hair and tattoos like it was easy to blame music for all of societies...

    Did God Create The Universe? Stephen Hawking

    Says who? Considering that it is impossible not to question on the most basic level of human thought, I find it highly doubtful that there is anything that is "not for us to know."

    Did God Create The Universe? Stephen Hawking

    Actually it's not "all theories," as you put it, there are facts that can be studied. The Earth was never flat so that is not a fact. No it isn't considering that angels aren't real. Whether anyone wants to believe it or not. As for "they" explaining global warming, I understand it quite...

    Insensitive: the movie 30 minutes or less

    Right, making a comedy out of it is the first clue that this is distasteful. Had they just based a drama out of the real events then of course I don't see what would be wrong with retelling or using the story as part of the movie plot. But there are limits to what you can attempt to make fun of...

    Insensitive: the movie 30 minutes or less

    I think Sony and the writers of this movie will end up in a lawsuit over this and rightfully so. It's ridiculous and in very bad taste to base a comedy on another person's murder. Any way you look at it, this guy was murdered and the movie is obviously ripped off from the real situation that...

    4 things needed to destroy myth of creator deity

    Must have preceded it? No that's not true, might have, maybe, but not must have. More like a false assumption. At least you admit to the facts that your beliefs are disprovable. That is honest.

    4 things needed to destroy myth of creator deity

    For myself personally, I care when people start killing each other over it... which happens alot... Other than that, what's wrong with promoting critical thinking? There's nothing wrong with it, except to those that aren't thinking, right? I don't for a second pretend to own the truth or that...

    4 things needed to destroy myth of creator deity

    We don't have to settle this and btw, we have left this rock we are on... But your statement only demonstrates how little you understand, that doesn't mean we know everything or that I'm claiming to know everything about the universe as I clearly don't and I can honestly say this based on what I...

    30min a day fitness training?

    I would forget the running altogether unless you enjoy doing that. I'd say work in 3 minute intervals of shadow boxing, you can include kicks knees and elbows, with 1 minute of stretching. Start off with a lower level of intensity and build up, also add extra 3 minute sets as your conditioning...

    Marijuana cuts lung cancer tumor growth in half according to Harvard study

    Sorry Bill, but this really bothered me especially since your posts are usually very intelligent. Comparing lung cancer to the effect that marijuana could possibly have on your brain is like comparing falling from an airplane to falling off your bike.

    Marijuana cuts lung cancer tumor growth in half according to Harvard study

    I've known many pot smokers throughout my life and watching them smoke away and get stoned could NEVER compare to watching a friend die from lung cancer. One of the worst things I've ever seen in my life. The suffering involved cannot be compared in any way to what pot does to peoples' brains.

    Getting a tattoo

    Sounds like an awesome idea, I would say like you mentioned, take time to find the right artist, and don't be afraid to pay to get an awesome tat. I'm almost positive you won't care and neither will anyone else. Who walks around living their life for when they're 90?
