  • I prefer Coke, but I'll drink either one. Like Lewis Black said, you don't storm out of a restaurant when you find out they only serve Pepsi if you like Coke. I don't know what it is exactly about it...maybe it's just what you grow up with.
  • Well, things started well for me for my prom. I got asked a week before the thing and found the perfect dress that same day for under $150. Unfortunately, it kind of went down hill from there. My date still didn't have his driver's license (his m…
  • I always liked this joke: What a Dog thinks: "Wow, these people feed me, play with me, give me water, clean up after me...they must be gods!" What a Cat thinks: "Wow, these people feed me, play with me, give me water, clean up after me...I …

  • I've studied French for what seems like forever now. I can usually understand it (provided people speak slow enough for me!) and I have little problems reading it. THe trick is being able to speak it myself. I don't think I'll evre get pronouncia…

  • I'm really interested in finding some good French music. I've heard some of Edith Piaf's music as well as Francis Cabrel (hooray for music downloading) but I'd be interested in other groups. Anyway, thanks for any suggestions!
  • Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and ignoran…
  • I'm sorry Trumptman, I may be misinterpreting what you've written (i've been writing papers all day) but it kind of sounds like you don't think atrocities were committed in Vietnam. My Lai was only one of who knows how many recorded instances of Am…
  • It depends a lot on the individual and the culture of religion here. As I've mentioned before, I worked in a Christian bookstore for about five years. The majority of products we sold were basically spin offs of secular material to which the autho…
  • There's really just no solution. The affects of second-hand smoke take too long for people to be concerned about. Yeah, we know that it kills, but since it doesn't happen immediately, we can't put it together. Personally, I hate being around smok…
  • Well, I do have plenty of days where I think people shouldn't be allowed to have kids until they can prove they're fit for it. Unfortunately, that'll take a Big Brother type program and I just haven't figured out how to spin it positively yet. But…
  • Smoking is bad. Total prohibition is much worse. As many have pointed out, prohibiting something rarely makes it go away. It just makes it worse. What I think would be interesting is if "smoking only" establishments opened up (do they already …
  • Quote: Originally posted by Carol A Good luck, Naderfan!!! Let us know how it goes. Thanks! I should probably sleep, but I'm too wound up and am doing laundry instead.
  • Well, I actually have a job interview tomorrow (wish me luck! )so I don't have a current job. But my last job was definitely a split. I worked for five years at a Christian bookstore. I was one of two liberals there (both politically and religio…
  • I agree that income-based programs are a better way to go than racial or gender based ones. Especially for colleges where income levels determine what kind of school you go to. I've noticed that you can be as dumb as a rock, but if you have money,…
  • I really find it hard to believe that martial law would be declared here. I just think it'd be a nightmare to try to impose here. Even during times of war, we've held regular elections and I think that's one of the hallmarks of our democracy: Rega…
  • I'm just curious: Is Tori Amos widely listened to? I love her stuff and I know she has a loyal fan base, but I only know one or two other people that actually listen to her here. She doesn't get much radio time, but frankly, that's fine with me si…
