Re: The Path to Peace (Eli Lake & Charles Kupchan)

The Soviets did more dying, because they did more fighting. The war on the Eastern Front was the War.

Look at battles, materiel, manpower, casualties. There is no comparison. The Soviets even...

Re: conspiracy theory on why boys are less attentive than girls...

Actually...no. In that case, the boys just start going after each other.

Re: Values Added: Common Ground (Sarah Posner & Mollie Ziegler Hemingway)

You're not making any sense.

You have three issues in play here:

1) Homosexuals, you suggest, may rape little boys.

2) Homosexuality may not be biological.

3) The raping of a little boy,...

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let's just replace that pronoun there:



Are you fucking kidding?

Plain bigotry? Just like that?

Re: Science Saturday: Galactic Princesses Edition (Annalee Newitz & Ken MacLeod)

One of the worst books ever written. Poorly executed and morally reprehensible. Sci-fi for Hitler Youth wanna-bes.

Re: Communitas: Should Everyone Go To College? (Dana Goldstein & Robert Lerman)

Why do racists think IQ has something to do with performance in college? Or in any kind of school?

The SAT doesn't even have anything to do with performance in college.

In fact, IQ testing...

Re: Bling, War, Fashion, and Radicalism (Hanna Rosin & Maureen Tkacik)

MIA's pretty good.

She steals blues riffs and sings about Robert Plant's cock. She also does drugs and trashes hotel rooms.

Old white men love her.

Re: Bling, War, Fashion, and Radicalism (Hanna Rosin & Maureen Tkacik)

Thanks for the posturing here and throughout the thread.

Re: Schools vs. Prisons

Job training is borderline useless.

Re: Values Added: Fear Factory (Peter Laarman & Anthea Butler)

Re: Values Added: Fear Factory (Peter Laarman & Anthea Butler)

Re: Sex, Power, Happiness (Michelle Goldberg & Rebecca Traister)

No; people did not mind their business in those days.

It was precisely people like your parents who objected to any familial protocol other than the one they themselves observed.

Lulz, I know.

There's no having a conversation with you. You assert what you're pretending to investigate.

Hey, great! Maybe we could look into this issue and try to find the truth of the matter.



Oh.

Re: Science Saturday: What's Wrong With Transhumanism?

Didn't Jesus Christ make this argument?



No; they're not. They're not at all.
