Never noticed this before today (a small thing, but mine own): HX51dC9c1oc Well, er, is it static that keeps them from being, er, static?

Re: Critical thinking/conspiracy theories

This was posted on a homeopathy group I monitor: I've been reading about the heavy metal contaminants in Chem Trails for the last two days and wondering if my horrible cough is due to some of these things I've been breathing in…a day of a complete cloud cover and then a two minute intense storm.

Re: Is there a funny pics thread?

If God created man in his own image, but the only humans that God created were Adam and Eve (Semitic raciality) , then God must have been Semitic too. Then where did the other races of man come from? ie. Black, yellow, red, brown, white, etc.? It couldn't be due to evolution because Fundies don't b...

Re: Compulsory voting - good or bad?

Animist said: Dave thinks that such elections would be cancelled, but surely this would not work - the voters who strongly supported the winning candidate would be furious at not being represented. OK, if more voted an abstention that any other option . . . Then a re-election would be democratic. Bu...

Re: Compulsory voting - good or bad?

As a past resident of Belgium, I know that voting there is compulsory. A failure to vote inflicts a fine on the non-voter. Be interesting to see what would happen if such a law were invoked here! I would generally be in favour of such a law here, but for the practical difficulties. If the state was...

Re: Tips

Then I remembered the elastic ankle supports I bought when I had foot trouble. Worked perfectly as a comfortable pressure bandage on the arm...
