hebrew, you seem to understand so little, its hard to even guess where to start with a post like that.
Gold is beautiful, indestructible, inflation proof, portable, a safeguard against bad government.
As long as you personally control the definition of the word 'rational', I suspect you're right.
When did we assign the task of religious education to the public education system. I must have missed something. Liberals did assign them the job of sex education for reducing the problems of STDs and teen pregnancy, and avoiding drugs. I hear that's been a smashing success.
Well, the best ones in Manhattan are $28 now. I was watching a food show on cable yesterday. Casual dining restaurant, not the Plaza. Don't get me wrong, its probably quite fabulous, not the sort of biological-economic experiment going on daily at McDonalds restaurants, to see how close you can get to the edge of 'unfit for consumption' and still be legal.
Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, all men who eschewed religion and embraced the reason of the State.
I can't believe we didn't think of it sooner.

Rationality as a class of thought is increasingly monetized as software algorithms, replacing people in economic work. A $100 intel processor can replace the reasoning effort of 1,000 people with ease. There simply won't be any demand for it.
What will be needed is creativity. Keep us from getting bored so silly we have to murder each other to have something to talk about.
We should give some thought to having a society where we just give everything materialistic to all young people for 10 or 15 years so they get totally bored with it and then can free themselves from chasing it their whole lives in a barbaric exploitation.
Vegie :) Back again today, up to old tricks (and some new ones the boys say). Bumping posts and bump and grind, too !
That racist card of yours never gets old. You go girl ! (right over a cliff).
not called Bachelorettes ? Not a Bachelor of Liberal Arts, but a Bachelorette of Liberal Arts.
Have the universities decided that when they award a woman a degree that it is a virtual sıuǝd ?
Many (if not most) do, I'm sure.
Trip Advisor says Bullets and Burgers ranks #1 of 575 tourist attractions in Las Vegas area.
They must be doing something right !
mavrik, I can see that you have some opinion issues with pud, but your writing style is kind of ambiguous. I don't have a really clear idea of how you feel yet. Could you lay your cards on the table and make it more plain ?
