Chopsticks should have erasers on the ends just like pencils.

Airplane 2 is funnier than Airplane 1. Yeah I said it.

Atheists telling Christians what they have to believe, is a bit like omnivores telling veg*ns what they can and can't eat.

Reading the stupid comments on articles is really entertaining. I ALWAYS read the comments.

Is the reverse true too? Or only that specific orientation? I think in general no one likes to be told what to believe/eat/wear/do/think...

Blobbenstein 09-22-2012 10:26 PM

yea, I really don't like being told what to think, or believe. I suppose most people don't.

Some atheists just want to set up a straw-man by saying that Christians must believe x, and then go on to say how believing x is ridiculous.

Logical fallacies are used on both sides of every argument all day long, I believe that.

Something I believe that others seem to find utterly incomprehensible is that you can be overweight and healthy.

I agree with that.

I like wearing black when it's hot out even though everyone is always telling me it's a bad idea tongue3.gif

I hate the summer. It's too hot.

According to some members on this forum it's an unpopular opinion to believe that's it's okay if someone is veg*n for their health, and not for ethical reasons.

I don't think those people would say that's an unpopular opinion; they just expressed their own opinion on it.

Personally, I prefer to see this issue not in terms of good vs. bad, either-or, 1 or 0. Even my own vegan lifestyle is not just "good", full stop. I still contribute to environmental destruction, I still participate in a fundamentally violent society. But being vegan is a very big and necessary part in embodying common decency towards other sentient beings.

Going veg*n for health reasons is a step in the right direction, but that doesn't mean there can't be any negative considerations, such as possible lack of political solidarity with the animal rights movement, or unawareness or lack of caring towards, or participation in, other ways animals are exploited.

Pixie 10-04-2012 06:06 PM

I think you can be a vegetarian for your own health but it doesn't make sense to be a vegan for health as you wouldn't avoid wool, leather, fur, circuses etc... for health reasons.

 

My unpopular opinion is that I am so sick of reading how "bad" white bread/rice/pasta is for people.


holothuroidea 10-10-2012 01:34 PM

Wesley Crusher is one of my favorite Star Trek characters.

 

I think candy is good for my health.

 

I think time outs and other contrived consequences are not good for kids.

 

OK, that should get me in plenty of trouble for now.

I don't think summer is the best time to cut your hair short. Hair on my head has never kept me particularly warm, and I always wear a hat in the winter, winter is a fine time to cut my hair. veryangry.gif

Whenever I shave my beard in the winter it gets extra cold on my cheeks lol

Ditto that. If it rained EVERY day I'd be so happy. I'm 100% anti-sun. 

 

Also, I hate public school. I think it's total nonsense and a waste of most kids time. 90% of my friends and family disagree.

I agree with you. I remember from another thread that you unschool, and I think that's fantastic!


thatsright 10-10-2012 07:12 PM

I agree and disagree. I went to one of the best school systems in the country so I feel I got a decent education, but I can't speak for most of my friends who can't spell correctly lol

I love the steamy summer, and I love the rain. grin.gif

I agree that public school wastes an incredible amount of kids' time for the little actual learning that takes place. And the textbooks they use in our local school districts are deplorable.

Blobbenstein 10-10-2012 11:55 PM

I was home educated for a few years (8ish to 11) and I think I missed out of socialising..I'm glad I went back to school for secondary education(11 onwards).

Woooo! More summer-haters!

The sun isn't what bothers me... it's the humidity. It can get up to 90% where I live, and it makes the summer feel like living in an oven. :(

I also think public schools need to be severely over-hauled. There were only a few upper-level classes I ever even felt like I had to study for when I was in public schools. Most of the classes weren't challenging for me, and they were too challenging for others, yet the school insisted we needed to do away with lower-level classes and honors classes. :|

At least I'm lucky with humidity. There's not much in Oregon. When I moved to New Mexico for school, there was a lot more than I was used to and WAY more sun and it was miserable. But, the humidity made my curls behave better. In Oregon my curls go nuts :(

I have curly hair, too! :D A small amount of humidity helps, but after too much they go nuts again and turn to frizz haha

No kidding. Looking at curls wrong turn them to frizz. I can get mine sort of straight, less ringlet like if I brush a lot, but then again, frizz. I have serious straight hair envy. Also, good luck finding vegan conditioner that works. Olive oil is pretty much it :(

Ever Pure - the L'Oreal line is vegan. It works fairly well for me, but I still have to use quite a bit of conditioner.

L'Oreal tests on animals though. I can't find a vegan, non-animal tested conditioner that works.

http://www.peta.org/living/beauty-and-personal-care/Ever-Pure-The-Vegan-Line-by-LOreal.aspx

That one line of L'Oreal doesn't do animal testing. I'm not sure why they made a small portion of their products vegan, but hopefully the positive feedback they've gotten from customers and animal rights organizations will help them change their mind about their other products.
