Re: Food that gives you headaches or other reactions. . .

There are people who have adverse reactions to chlorophyll. So if you don't spend much time in the great outdoors or walking barefoot on grass you might not notice it, until you eat a green vegetable. Counting my blessings that my digestion seems to remain pretty omnivorous. That's interesting. I'v...

That's not postmodernism.

Re: Why are some things difficult to discuss in society?

About sex having no victims. I can tell you're not very religious. To several religious folk, sex does have victims. You're gambling with your soul and a chance to suffer for eternity in Hell should you not follow divine guidelines. Many religious people don't believe that. And there are plenty of ...

Re: Why is this news?

As idiotic as is publishing this new age sentimental piece, it's a lot more productive to MJ's obsessive fans than publishing an actual news report on his funeral, his family or details of his death. That stuff is personal, and I believe it has less of a right to be published in a national news sour...

Re: Design your own ideal education system

- Science will be about the scientific method and NOT canned laboratories. Less emphasis on fact memorization. Seminars to discuss ideas will be key supplements to lab work and reading assignments. Neural / Behavioral / Cognitive sciences will receive equal attention to other sciences to help stude...

Re: Leaving Myspace for Facebook makes you a racist?

"Interestingly, whether the actions are racist is pretty much only tangentially related to whether the behavior is motivated by racism." In this case, they are still engaging in white flight, and it's still racist. I guess I could also cite the racism of Resident Evil 5, since the motivat...

Re: Leaving Myspace for Facebook makes you a racist?

I think it's more socio-economic, and that's where the author called racism. It's not literally the separation of black and whites as the article clearly made no intention to include demographics. To understand theory, you have to accept these things as metaphors used in cultural studies. This is my...

Re: My friend thinks that you can divide by zero.

If 1/0 = \infty , then \infty\times0 = 1 (this is the definition of division). So: \begin{eqnarray} 0+0 & = & 0 \\ \infty\times(0+0) & = & \infty\times0 \\ \infty\times0 + \infty\times0 & = & \infty\times0 \\ 1 + 1 & = & 1 \\ 2 & = & 1 \end{eqnarray} ...

Re: My Summer Reading List (Help!)

Once you've understood the play as it was originally intended, then rent any "modernized" version, and you will see how it completely raped it. It didn't just screw it up, it fucking raped it over a splintery wooden barrel with rusty nails sticking out, poking it in its back. There have b...
