  • Commented on Natural or Synthetic
    I think that is a great point Norm: "The question isn't natural or synthetic it's harm or no harm." And maybe just add to that "long-term harm or no harm." That is one reason I would prefer something organic (obviously...
  • Commented on Progressivism-Is-Cancer
    Liberal SoCal? So you're not behind the Orange Curtain, I take it...must be LA. Ronald Reagan hospital? Maybe that's part of the deal with the name. Amazing hospital, though. I had no idea......
  • Commented on The Low Anthem - Charlie Darwin (music video)
    Pretty song. I would have to listen a little more to hear the words. What do you think it means that Darwin looked an awful like an archetypal Christ in this vid? :) Did you see the bad at SXSW?...
  • Commented on Progressivism-Is-Cancer
    wow - where do you live again, Tim? I find that frightening that there is a place where anyone would think that is the standard viewing channel......
  • Commented on Progressivism-Is-Cancer
    Hmm...roads? Who does those? Do you pay to have your own road made? Or, do you get together with the neighbors and say no one can use the road unless they pay? Or - are there still taxes but you...
  • Commented on Progressivism-Is-Cancer
    how much govt should there be according to libertarians? military only?...
  • Commented on Capitalism 101
    It did affect me directly - I would've gotten the money (and it was somewhere around $700 if I remember right) but, I had so much going on at the time - getting ready to move, finishing up one job...
  • Commented on Capitalism 101
    i told them it seemed illegal and that the insurance company should kno about it. I didn't do anything though - I just stopped going there. Now I feel better because it seems like no one would've cared even if...
  • Commented on Capitalism 101
    Okay - how about this? I had to go to the doctor four times in a month. Before they would do anything, of course, they wanted to know what insurance I had. I gave them my work insurance. They said...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Wednesday
    Great article on evolution and culture but...I feel kind pretty dense on some of it. I think I don't quite get what constitutes "culture." With what people eat, is that cultural or necessitated by access? If a wolf mainly had...
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee - Friday
    Yes, I was also not a fan of this article but I see you said it all so I'll just say "ditto."...
  • Commented on Led Zeppelin's <i>Stairway to Heaven</i> Backwards
    First, it reminded me of the greatness of Led Zeppelin :) and then, where do these rumors come from? Who sits around and listens to this stuff backwards?...
  • Commented on Becker's Bible Basics
    How great is that!?! You two talk about each other with a whole lot of love and respect. For some reason, this has made my day (okay - it's been a slow day :)...
  • Commented on Becker's Bible Basics
    Hmm? Was the Torah before or after or the same as the Ten Commandments? Is the writing in the Torah the same as what's in the Bible? I'm confused. What I know about the Torah all comes from "The Chosen"...
  • Commented on What are Syngas's beliefs on climate change
    ha!...
  • Commented on What are Syngas's beliefs on climate change
    My question was without snark - didn't mean you couldn't or shouldn't snark. It's part of your charm....
  • Commented on What are Syngas's beliefs on climate change
    No - I would never assume logic could make you believe something your political marketers don't want you to believe...Just adding a little more math and logic for you to ignore.. Since this was your statement.. "While man certainly contributes...
  • Commented on Becker's Bible Basics
    I have a question for you Jonathan. I read once (don't remember where) that Jews were initially circumsized to mark them as slaves and then Jews took it on themselves and made it a ritual. I never saw anything like...
  • Commented on What are Syngas's beliefs on climate change
    Are you kidding? We're talking math here. People can say whatever they want but numbers are numbers. What about this one...the first king who played chess liked the game so much that he offered the mathematician who invented it any...
  • Commented on What are Syngas's beliefs on climate change
    Perhaps you don't understand the difference between trying to teach maxims about human nature and trying to help the human brain grasp large numbers. This was about population and it's supposed to help you understand the concept of exponential increase....
  • Commented on What are Syngas's beliefs on climate change
    You might enjoy the book. Check it out. "The Universe and the Teacup: The Mathematics of Truth and Beauty." I think you'll find other "fables" in there that you'll like....
  • Commented on Gypsy's picks for 6 more weeks!
    Wow - pretty - I see why composers were inspired....(don't get a lot of that here in So. Cal.)...
  • Commented on What are Syngas's beliefs on climate change
    Anyone read "The Universe and the Teacup?" There is talk about how the human brain is set up for innumeracy and how it is difficult to grasp concepts dealing with something large. Gotta say, Syngas, even though the story references...
  • Commented on How News is Done
    Nailed it! That was great....
  • Commented on What are Syngas's beliefs on climate change
    I just picked something that would bother you but not incapacitate you - so you would want to take care of it but it wouldn't have the urgency of say a heart attack or stroke.......
  • Commented on What are Syngas's beliefs on climate change
    I think that is a fantastic analogy. So - drinking and smoking are not the cause of your overall problem (and you don't really want to give them up so you're trying to find something else to blame) but -...
  • Commented on Things Look Bad and Robertson Knows Why
    Okay - I started one. I accidentally put it under humor/satire. (I forget that the topic comes up with whatever you were looking at before that...) I really would like to know what you think. I haven't talked to anyone...
  • Posted What are Syngas's beliefs on climate change to onegoodmove Forum
    No snark involved - just curious since Syngas is always reacting to what others believe but, I am curious what climate change according to Syngas is.......
  • Commented on Links With Your Coffee
    Wow - I thought Ricky Gervais was just very funny - I didn't know about his background or thinking. I had no idea. He is a very appealing man....
  • Commented on Things Look Bad and Robertson Knows Why
    Interesting...but I was actually talking about your tenets (trying to use the same terms you used) toward global warming/climate change......
