    Homosexuality, Choice, and Hormones.

    Good to see that things haven't changed much around here. No contributions from that juggernaut clown? That's a bit surprising, unless he's been banished or took his all-knowing box of crap elsewhere.

    Another Month........Another Patronage Scandal.

    QUOTE(NUKE_CLEVELAND @ Oct 20, 2006 -> 06:09 PM) http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/104486,...day2-20.article http://www.suntimes.com/news/metro/103096,...ledex19.article So tell me. When are we going to throw out Daley and his crony and corruption infested political machine? This City government is one of the most unabashedly corrupt entities in the history of politics and nobody so much as bats an eye. The fact that this sort of behavior is allowed to continue, for years and years on end, at the cost of millions of taxpayer dollars makes me ashamed that Im from Chicago and is a big reason why I'll never reside within the city limits again. I've got some news for you, this type of thing is going on in EVERY large city in this country, bar none. Probably occurs in most small cities too, just on a smaller scale. Since this limits the number of places in which you can reside with civic pride, I might suggest a visit to ol' Mr. Rourke and his dimunitive sidekick.

    High gas prices.

    QUOTE(Rex Kickass @ Jul 10, 2006 -> 11:07 AM) It's available in Canada, but modifications are required to make it fit US standards of something or other IIRC. That's what they've always claimed, but it's a bunch of crap if you ask me. But, the CEO of Daimler is on record recently as saying the fortwo model will be here in mid-to-late 2007.

    High gas prices.

    DaimlerChrysler recently announced that they'll bring the SmartCar to the US in mid-2007-- www.smartusa.com, and Tangos are right around the corner -- www.commutercars.com. Both have brighter futures than traditional hybrids, IMHO.

    ACLU gets prayer banned at a HS graduation ceremony.......

    If i were that one kid, I would have brought a big sign that said "I Graduated! Thank You Satan, Dark Lord and Master!" And held it up while the Our Father was being recited. You exercise your freedom of religion, I'll exercise mine, and in short time we'll see that Christian value system in full effect.

    Chili Peppers Use Petty's Music

    This happens all the time in rock/pop music, it's just usually nobody picks up on it. I don't think it was intentional. Another example of this sort of thing I actually just noticed recently. I was listening to Green Day's Nimrod album(ok, stop laughing jerks) and the song 'Scattered' sounds almost exactly like the old America song 'Sister Golden Hair.' You can find hundreds of examples like this, if you had the time and resources.

    The DaVinci Code

    QUOTE(southsider2k5 @ May 15, 2006 -> 08:38 PM) Do yourselves a favor and watch the History Channel special on Decoding the Davinci Code and read the books of the authors they interview. Guys like Richard Leigh who wrote Holy Blood, Holy Grail are way better books than this. Both Angels and Demons and Holy Blood Holy Grail are better books than DVC. Another good one if you're into the whole knights Templar thing is The Second Messiah. Kinda drags during the chapters where the authors go into the history of the freemasons, but overall pretty interesting stuff.

    iPod Question

    QUOTE(farmteam @ Apr 17, 2006 -> 08:02 PM) The computer I had iTunes on crashed, and with it went all my iTunes and music files. Obviously, the songs are still on my actual iPod, but if I were to plug it into the computer they would all be erased. Is there a way to get the songs from iPod and put them back on iTunes? Download the Ipod Agent. You can safely transfer your songs without losing them that way

    You think your phone bill is bad?

    If there was a monthly charge to post on Soxtalk, SS2k5 would top $215 trillion easily.

    Caption fun

    QUOTE(kyyle23 @ Mar 29, 2006 -> 08:52 AM) This picture has so many caption options, I want to see what you guys can do with it Ms. Phelps was later horrified to learn that the man she embraced that afternoon was NOT, in fact, Billy Dee Williams, and that her autographed replica Millennium Falcon was, therefore, a fake.

    Pffft, WHERE are these women??

    What's wrong with it is that you can't use it to back your point UNLESS you agree that all of the bible is literally true. You can't pick and choose which parts are indisputably true and which parts aren't. This debate has nothing to do with whether or not the bible contains any good ideas regarding morality and social interaction. Well, since you didnt answer my question about Dr. Ruth's position, you're talking about one person here. And I'm really not convinced that Dr. Phil 'knows' more about this subject than a lay person interested in the subject. What is his doctorate in anyways? No, but in order to study this type of arrangement you have to have subjects on which to study. I don't know the answer, but I question the existence of substantial data that supports the claim that polygamous relationships do not work based on studies of people actually in them. I'm not saying they work, I'm just again stating that I'm skeptical much research has been done thus far. If you have data to prove me wrong, I'm very interested in reading it. Sure, but homosexuality is much more socially acceptable now than it was 40 years ago. And it's definitely more acceptable today than polygamous relationships. Therefore, you hear more gay people comfortable discussing their sexuality than someone with 8 lovers for example. Who knows, maybe in 40 years polygamous marriages will be as common as "out" homosexuals. Well, since you refused to answer my question(again I might add) if I am mistaken then please explain what this statement meant: "Right, just like homosexuals keep their "practice" private, yet everybody seems to know at least one or two. " You may be right, but I refer to one of my earlier posts in which I questioned if a child wasn't raised to feel like a monogamous relationship was expected, would he pursue one or not? I think the answer to this question holds a lot of keys. I think that was a very small movement to begin with, and it didn't change the fact that even those that participated in it were raised in a culture that instilled monogamy as an ideal. As of now, yes, but that doesn't mean it is inherently wrong or can't work. And I reiterate that even if you did know a couple in an open marriage, based on what I'm seeing here you'd be the last to know about it-- you know?
