It's ridiculous to even get sidetracked by discussing whether or not it's a human, and at what stage. Even if the fetus is a human, no institution has any right to impose it's will on anyone's body. Suppose there are two conjoined twins that hate each other. When they are 20 years old the technolog...

First things first, decide what you want to from life.

THEN you can decide a relationship was successful if you both got more of that.

Note: Finding your goal in life, is an acceptable goal in life.

I've always wanted to play parinoia but I never found a group. I can play Friday night or Saturday night. 1:00AM-10:00AM GMT I could go later if needed.

I'm in China, but when I say Friday and Saturday night, I mean Friday and Saturday night in the US. It's Saturday and Sunday morning for me.

I just wish I could find more gamers here... There's lots, but they're goldfarmers. Doesn't count? Actually I haven't met a single gold farmer yet.

The assumption seems to be that the rings produce energy out of nowhere, which is fine. Magic etc... But note that they're not directly changing the kinetic energy of the rock, just spontaneously moving it to a higher potential energy "for free." The key point here is that it is not magic...

Shadowrun was awsome. I could just sit there running the matrix all day. And I second the nomination for Shining Force 1 and 2.

Phantasy Star 3 was pretty good but I hate the green dam.

Agreed. China and India are largely (not exclusively) homogeneous places, and so generally you can't identify someone of a 'lower class' just by looking at them. Actually China has a large number of distinct minorities. The 'Han' are the majority. And you can definitely tell by looking at the way p...

Final Fantasy tactics Advance. Final Boss, final form, main character striking the final blow.

Red card for an illegal move, the boss dies and my main character is sent to "jail". Game over.

That game is so bogus, I never finished it.

Re: Buddhism V Western Philosophy

So, hello, I'm new here and I have some serious business you may or may not wish to discuss. I am currently studying philosophy at college (if you are American, this is 6th form college, not university) which I find fascinating, and my dad is a practising buddhist. Western philosophy is great and i...

Yes, but archeology never actually proves anything. Actually nothing is ever totally proven, theres always some basic assumption somewhere. But for criminal cases someone has to Judge when it is proved enough.
