    Politics 2004 Presidential Election

    Humph... and Bush invites Rumsfield to stay for his second term. 'Course Rummy did such a bang up job he couldn't be asked to go! And when has there been real accountability in this Administration? :rolleyes: In funnier news, Bush thanked all the Canadians who waved to him with 5 fingers...

    Politics Eating disorders

    *Big Sigh* That is totally not true. And people who judge people based on their weight/appearance should be ignored. The biggest girl in my class in high school who probably weighed around 200 pounds (I never asked, never cared) was voted student council president and was one of the most...

    Sabella, Hi, I don't know you and I've only had time to scan through a few pages of this thread but I really do think it's in your best interests you should seek some professional help. For the sake of your physical and mental health, AS SOON AS POSSIBLE you should find someone to talk to who...

    Season 5 Kristen spoiler

    That just gave me the funny image of a Lazarus like Irina literally pushing up (Jack planted :innocent: ) daisies from inside her grave, after yet another faux death. :lol: After blowing off the coffin lid with her Ruger of course. :cool: So the documents state who did the deed and why...

    When did you become a J/I shipper?

    Well I was just mesmerised by Irina the moment I saw her, and then I got into J/I once Jack started telegraphing his love/hate for Laura/Irina with his eyes. That first meeting between the glass! It was so hawt even as they were so cold. :reallyexcited: How could I not fall in love with J/I...

    Season 5 Kristen spoiler

    I hate the idea of Irina being killed, I just hope she's Alias!Dead :rolleyes: and not permanently dead. I think Irina dying would rock Sydney's world, despite Sydney not showing much emotion or curiosity towards her in S3. I remember Sydney's expression when Irina jumped off the building in...

    Politics Wicca, Witchcraft etc.

    Oh I agree, but isn't all religion basically teaching about the "power" of some "higher being" to change the course of someone's life or afterlife? ;) Does that mean that they actually can? *shrugs* All I am saying is we can't prove or dispel the "truth" of one religion or another when...

    Politics Wicca, Witchcraft etc.

    I do not believe in Wicca or witchcraft or spells personally but I can tell you that in many non-Western cultures, there have been age old cultural/religious traditions involving practices akin to spell casting. i.e. placing curses or charms on people/places True plenty of people/groups make...

    Politics Wicca, Witchcraft etc.

    Interesting learning about this. I've got some questions too. How do you become a witch? Why do some Wiccans practice witchcraft and some don't? What is "magick" about in your religion? The magical power to do anything? Can you give some examples... Is the only way to do magick through...

    Have to admit I nitpick about grammar and spelling too. Especially when people type "your" instead of "you're". ;)

    Politics Aids 'threatens African security'

    HIV infections hit record numbers And it's not just in Africa... Record number of women with HIV The Catholic Church's stance on condoms is completely absurd! Some in the Church even argue condoms increase the likelihood of HIV transmission! :angry: I watched a documentary about this and...

    Do give that peanut butter and condensed milk a shot! :P Especially great on toast. Speaking of toast, I just read that that toast allegedly with an image of the Virgin Mary on ebay has been sold for $28,000! :blink: There is also a site www.urbandictionary.com about urban slang that is...

    Thanks for the pic Amy. Learn something new every day. ^_^ 5x5, I am not from the UK but I have lived in London in the past too. I grew up learning British English but with the years my vocab's gotten mixed up with all the American friends and pop culture I've been exposed to. Sometimes...

    A jumper is probably what you'd call a sweater or a pullover ? What are jumper dresses? It is fun finding out what different things are called in different places! When I was young, I read about peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in stories and I always thought that was such a gross...

    Politics 2004 Presidential Election

    The US$ is now at a 4 year low and will only weaken further as the deficit increases. It's your dollar. ;) To Natalia's post: I'm not surprised at the rising (and dangerous) level of anti-Americanism in the Muslim world. I think it's predicated on a perception of both religious (threat...

    Politics Person of the Year

    Well, people can go with whoever they want. You can even nominate yourself. :lol: Reluctantly, I'll have to go with George W. Oh, how I wish it were not so! But I have to hand it to Bush (and to Bush's brain Karl Rove) for winning another term despite his terrible performances in the...

    Politics Person of the Year

    It's that time of the year again when we start getting all those polls and recaps about the year that was. So I thought I'd do a Person of the Year poll here a la Time Magazine (which I thought totally copped out by not making Osama Person of the Year in 2001 :rolleyes: ). Naturally, the...

    Politics What is the most serious problem in the world?

    Since ethnic/religious conflict was such a popular choice, do people think that that kind of conflict is a staple of the world or will people become more tolerant? Are we heading for the infamous "clash of civilisations"? Are nationalism and (religious etc.) fundamentalisms forces doing more...
