Re: Special Intimate Edition (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Your use of the word Muslim is too general.

Smile Re: Science Saturday: Purposes and Futures (Robert Wright & Eliezer Yudkowsky)

This diavlog was thoroughly entertaining and interesting. Bob's dickishness is highly amusing. Keep it up.

Re: The Palestinian statehood option (clock is ticking fast)

If you are going for convention and "excitement" over accuracy that is fine and you free to do so.

Re: The Palestinian statehood option (clock is ticking fast)

I would still say 1990 is part of the 1990s.

Is year ten part of the first decade or not? It is ten years in a decade and not nine right? There is no zero year. You start counting at one but year...

Re: The Palestinian statehood option (clock is ticking fast)

If you go back to year 0 you know I am technically right.

Lets break it down for you.

This is the tenth year of this millennium. A year is made up of 365 days(I know it isn't exactly 365),...

Re: Ecoterrorists

If you look at death statistics it is actually mental to be afraid of terrorism when you compare it to things like dying in a car accident or getting the flu.

Re: The Palestinian statehood option (clock is ticking fast)

You just made up that rule.

I am technically right.

However, if you decide to count like that I don't mind it.

Re: The Palestinian statehood option (clock is ticking fast)

Do Bob and Mickey know that "the next decade" actually starts at the end of this year and not the start of it?

Remember you don't count zero.

Re: Gala New Year's Edition, 2010 (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

Mickey Kaus criticises Bob for previously saying that Tiger would be a good role model(way before all the sexual revelations).

I think Tiger has now become an even better role model for modern...

Re: Science Saturday: The Young and the Restless

Vox Day is a tool. I read his book the "irrational atheist". Talk about straw men and logical fallacies. He seems to be the personification of such things.

First of all. Abbie, will you marry me? A sexy, smart, funny, atheistic, microbiologist chick. I didn't think you existed.

Re: Puppies!!!

Yes. To be human is to sometimes be irrational. You have to work at being rational.

Re: Puppies!!!

Yes the philosophical reasons.

The ideas like freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of/from religion.

These are things you should value globally.

Re: Puppies!!!

I think the ratings of Bob/Mickey diavlogs will soar because of the addition of Frasier.

The visceral "I love America because it is my country" is the stupid America. Why should you automatically...

Re: Science Saturday: Microcosm Edition

They don't actually pump DNA through the pilus into the next microbe. The pilus pulls the cells together and disassembles and the microbes form a mating pore through which the one way DNA transfer...

You don't think this was ordered by Musharraf? Who the US government supports and funds.
