What really drives me up the wall, though, is when teachers say "The author's opinion doesn't matter, but mine/this critic's/the English department's does" Any English or Literature teacher worth his or her salt will treat opposing arguments equally if they are defended properly. I suppos...

My first sexual relationship was with a girl I'd dated for a over a year before we reached that physical level. We were both (I think; she turned out to be rather less than truthful about a lot of things) virgins, and the sex was pretty bad. I didn't know how bad at the time, and didn't realize she ...

Happy people don't buy. DEPRESSED people buy. Oh God, it's so true.

But Strangers With Candy makes me smile. So I guess that kind o...

How much would a space elevator slow the earth's spin down? I imagine negligibly if even at all. We won't be adding matter that Earth doesn't already have; we'll just be reshaping what's already here and pointing it up. Also, in space, no one can hear you scream. ...er; rather, there's no air to cr...

So, in conclusion to all of that, I suppose I'd really like to ask what you mean when you say humans are "logical beings". Not to put words in someone else's mouth, but I assume that statement to mean that we as humans are capable of logic and reasoning, to a greater degree than any other...

This is an interesting article. It basically claims that chess masters quickly find the right move through precedent. Intuition probably works the same way. Wow.

Reminds me of that Maury episode with the 15 year old girl who would do anything to have a baby. Here we go. She's already had sex 300 times so signs point to fiction or fertility issues; likely the former. Both of these individuals don't seem to realize that having a child does not in and of itself...

The establishment that served him is liable for getting him drunk. The rest of the suit is for the court to decide. Sadly true. This is definitely a rock/hard place situation for the servers, though.

Maybe there should be a fourth option for whether or not accommodations are necessary.
A total headcount is good, but so is a count of everyone who'll need to sleep at a hotel.

EDIT: I'm dumb; there's already a poll for that. :oops:
