Re: Smoking and cigarette taxes

If those five other people are allergic (highly unlikely), they can walk away. Walk faster, walk slower, walk to the other side of the street. Like I said, there's plenty of room. If it's too much effort to do that, it's probably not annoying you that much. I wouldn't have a problem with people giv...

Re: Alcohol...good/bad?

Virtually every popular entertainment these days has some cost to society. Typically it's just very distributed across both 'victims' and 'abusers'. The internet has a *huge* cost on society in term of lost productivity (among other things), but the victim is amorphous and the abusers are so multit...

Re: Strange but delicious combinations

At the ice cream shop I used to work at, we had the strawberry and the coffee frozen custard on the same machine for a while, so we could make strawberry/coffee twist (the reason for this being, we had two machines, and chocolate/vanilla was on the other one). Nobody ordered it, but it was pretty da...

Re: Alcohol...good/bad?

I really shouldn't argue this but... I was going to make a snide remark questioning whether or not you drove a car, used credit cards, ate sugary foods, or had/planned to have children in order to point out the absurdity of judging a common place behavior based only on the availability of a worst ca...

Re: Man Thread: urgghhh Graaag!

I had a horrifying thought today. My penis is cleaner than my hand. Next time you go to unload at the urinal, think, should you be washing your hands or your dick afterwards?

Re: Confessional Thread

Confession: I am thinking about declaring my major tomorrow, and I am unsure if I want to or not. I realize that I want to do something with math, because I spent time on Wikipedia looking at higher level "maths" (math logic and linear algebra) and found it interesting. I also looked at t...

Re: Childhood sucks a little more now.

My friends used to play "kill the bee" which seemed like a stupid idea to me at the time and in retrospect still seems like a stupid idea. They would hang out around a trash can and see how many yellow jackets/wasps they could kill with their bare hands (while I watched from a safe distanc...

Good News: You realize that your crewmates can be converted into an excellent source of fuel ( I don't actually know if you can make rocket fuel out of nomex...but with the infinite improbability drive anything is possible, right?)

Re: What instrument do you own?

French horn. I asked for it as a graduation present from my grandfather, but now I feel bad because I rarely play it.

Re: Alcohol...good/bad?

The only time I've ever had alcohol was when someone spiked the punch at my parent's party when I was 8. It's a personal choice I made mainly due to the amount of problems that alcohol causes in today's society. I also hate the way basically all social aspects of college life (and to a lesser degree...

Re: Filesharing: Inalienable right or punishable by death?

I was thinking about this the other day, and I figure that someday soon, the concept of "intellectual property" will become antiquated and people will only produce art because (gasp) they want to share their creative expression. Because really, there's no way to reliably regulate something...

Re: REALLY Annoying Misconceptions

I registered just so I could post in this thread, so I really hope that these haven't already been mentioned :P Misconception: Taste and smell are completely unrelated senses as in the classic "That tastes like shit" "Oho! so you've eaten shit then?". I'll admit that this is the ...

Re: POST HERE FIRST - INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Hi! I found this forum through a random link in an IRC transcript. So far I have not read the comic, but I found the forums to be particularly entertaining and full of intelligent people (which I did not expect to find on the internet, but was pleasantly surprised anyway). I am a 21-year-old CS majo...
