  1. "There are two kinds of people in this world, human beings and women. When women try to behave like human beings they are accused of trying to act like men." - Simone de Beavoir
  2. boogie camper Easy to set up and mobile without a car. I know you want one.
  3. First, CO was not as much an entertainment movie, but a commentary on British politics of the day. So, a discussion is more at home in Speakers Corner. They needed a villain to really polarize opinion and produce discussion/outrage. He was a great one. No one disputes the excessive violence, etc. What follows is how British politics entered the picture. The film used caricatures of each party and the central figure as their pawn. The right was tormenting the guy. The left used him as a tool to attack the right. Putting him on the correct path with care, after all the abuse. So, seeing it again won't make it more enjoyable. As a parallel to the genre in the US, Easy Rider. Drug-taking hippies who ride motorcycles and have sex. Destroying the fabric of American society. At that time in the US, society was very polarized on what seem like non-issues today. The riders were shot and killed. People walked out of the theater and thought they were right, no matter which side of the issues they were on. If the point of some art is not entertainment, but to be thought-provoking, then Kubrick succeeded.
  4. Life is 10% what is happening in your life and 90% how you react to it.
  5. David Baldacci "First Family" he writes strong male and female characters. valid adults, not cartoons.
  6. landed next to a field that was a nearby persons garden. they gave us a ride all the way to the dz, but refused the offer of a free beer and left immediately. ;) also, saw a CRW group at wffc come back from a demo... in the back of a cattle truck. riding in style.
  7. I would sooner suck the McDonald's door handle than eat there. The big problem in fast food places is the ice. A local girl compared the germ content of the toilet water to that of the ice. The toilet is routinely disinfected. The ice machine is a germ-breeding oasis. That cup of ice is a mouthful of disease.
  8. Kids peeing is how the other 28% of the carts get the fecal matter washed off. "Kiddie pee... bringing you a cleaner, fresher grocery cart."
  9. Yes, there are terrible stories in the bible, you can either abhor them, or look at them as a lesson in what not to do. The bible can interpreted (even twisted) in so many different ways to fit anybody's ideology. i don't think that Bible scholars are ok with that concept. "in the past, some prophets were wrong" or "Gods order to kill all Baal worshippers was not good." true believers know the Bible/Koran/whatever book is right all the time. ;)
  10. total compensation. soldiers -salary, pension, housing, food, full medical. (edited to add - I was primarily referring to the topic - Ohio state employees. soldiers are a small segment of the state budget.)
  11. years ago, many of the cost+ monopolies were viewed as non-competitve and bloated. their areas were opened to competition and costs dropped. big govt is the last dynasty. they need to put their compensation packages in line with the private sector.
  12. i switch back and forth. i do my favorite thinking with my small brain. ;)
  13. usually this is an implied statement. "if you don't agree with me, then you are closed-minded." i usually reply, "yes, that is why i considered your position long ago and decided it was incorrect."
