Re: 1480: "Super Bowl"

Don't miss the commercials, too. Friends, food, and some really silly commercials!
But yes, mostly food. 8^)

Re: 1366 - "Train"

what happens when two trains go in opposite directions? This actually accounts for the only real movement of trains: Sideways. The earth still rotates, but on an axis which penetrates the center of the Earth and the point directly between the pulling trains. The trains move laterally as the earth's...

Re: 1357: "Free Speech"

I'll tolerate the fuck out of his right to voice his intolerance of gay marriage. He can talk about it all he wants. He did more than that though: he tried to make it illegal. He took action to make life worse for thousands of Californians. "I think gay marriage is immoral" - okay, whatev...

Re: 1357: "Free Speech"

But he didn't say he had an obligation to pay le Riche to do it . That, specifically, is the point addressed in the comic. What an interesting, but totally inconsequential, point! If Voltaire had employed le Riche to write _for_ him, in, say, a magazine or newsletter of the variety in use at the ti...

Re: 1357: "Free Speech"

Your rant, while impressively long-winded and condescending, has added nothing to the conversation. Voltaire saying someone has the right to do something doesn't mean Voltaire, had he lived today, would be willing to do business with someone he disagreed vehemently with. This whole thread is full o...

Re: 1357: "Free Speech"

I fail to follow the espoused absolute that being Christian and not approving LGBTetc behavior automatically means "anti-gay". I am a Christ-believing, Bible-reading Christian, and have been for most of my life. I have gay friends. I have gay acquaintances. I have given my musical talents ...

Re: 1357: "Free Speech"

I am, frankly, amazed. Civics isn't taught in schools anymore, so I shouldn't be surprised, but I am. The Bill of Rights does not define, nor does it 'institute' rights. It specifically forbids the Federal Government from infringing on existing rights. The Framers were very openly aware that there a...

Re: 1350: "Lorenz"

First, I love it, but won't have time to follow many paths before going home. Second, if you choose the political option in frame 1 and continue (currently the only choice) in frame 2, frame 3 has four choices. One of them is "I agree with my opponent ALL ALL issues...". Since this is (one...

Re: 1134: "Logic Boat"

There is no good solution to this but to point out to the Ninja that there's a Pirate here. While the Dinosaur is busy watching/eating them, do the boat thing and run as far, as quietly and with as little noise as possible to where the dinosaur cannot see you. Then pray that the Ninja doesn't surviv...
