    So do you guys Afghanistan is a worthy cause or are there ulterior motives for our involvement there? Is there really a terrorist threat there?

    I have no words.. Destroying or removing statues that have been in place for decades or centuries out of raw emotion and because of violence is about the most stupid thing to do. And here I thought that Europe was politically correct... This statue still stands, to this day, it's the statue to Jan Pieterszoon Coen. Who used to be a national hero of ours. Now people think different about him but the statue remains because it's part of our heritage. (wiki)

    That's too rich for me. I missed the boat on this one. At one point I had a few coins, and they disappeared on "an old mountain". At this point, it's too expensive, and mining has not been worth it for any coin in my opinion since shortly after ASICs came out. It would feel so defeatist to enter such a heated and volatile market that's way too rich for me just to grab a tiny sliver of the pie, when I had more in the past. It feels like more of a get rich quick scheme for the early adopters at this point, which makes it hard to imagine as a global means of exchange, when one could be designed better through an alternate currency. Knowing my luck, the moment I were to re-enter the market is when everything would come down. But at this point, it's just too expensive, I'm not rich enough to have as many coins as I've had before so I'm too late in the game, and I don't want to get scammed again. If it were to shoot up to 10k per coin or more, I would not look back on this post as a missed chance, but would think it has remained too expensive. And I don't think that I should be thinking in mBTC instead of in BTC, I think that sounds like something that someone who holds a lot of bitcoin and wants to increase its value would want someone to think, I think I should stay out of places where I could get scammed and lose resources when I should be more focused on survival. Besides, there are already attempts to make cryptocurrency illegal. It's great that some people were able to get rich quick, and it's cool that there's neat technology behind this stuff, but I've been scammed and have lost enough. Maybe if I was lucky enough to still have some currency I'd still support it, but it doesn't seem very practical when it's so much more expensive now and those who got it early have already made their fortunes.

    It is only a meager 100%. He's not a God you know, he is only Godlike. In any case, threatening a missile strike on Guam is downsizing for North Korea. They have been saying for years that they are planning to strike pretty much every inch of America. So yeah. They're bluffing, like always. It doesn't get old. Nobody will attack them, it's too big of a mess. Too big. Too many reasons not to. Similarly, they will not attack. There is nothing to gain for them. NOTHING. They* are evil, not stupid. *Those pulling the strings.

    Apparently hell freezes over. The problem with this question is that it is a trick question. Practically you may not need the police, however in practice, you may need them in order to remain lawful. Per example*, someone kidnapped your kid, you know where he is. The person that kidnapped your kid is armed. Do I continue ? *This example is not exactly a daily occurrence nor something many of us have to worry about yet it is the perfect illustration of my point, imho.

    I personally don't advocate veganism, though I do recognize that it is practical in most places in the world. I don't think it's wrong to have honey, milk, or wear wool because they can be obtained with minimal or no harm to the animal and don't require killing. I also think that for most people, lacto-vegetarianism is easier and more practical, because dairy is healthy and would contain anything someone might be worried about missing from animal products, though those nutrients can also be found in plant sources. One of the reasons I find libertarian and similar philosophies interesting is the non-aggression principle. To me, the NAP is basically the moral value of ahimsa, or non-violence to all species in word and deed, so I feel that it meshes nicely with my faith. To me, the libertarian non-aggression principle (ahimsa) is the reason not to cause harm to other humans and animals except in self defense. It is basically extending the golden rule to all of God's sentient creation. In this sense, lacto-vegetarianism can be seen as either neutral, libertarian, or conservative. There are aspects about the vegan movement that I don't agree with that make it seem like more of a political movement or a boycott based on agreeing with a particular set of beliefs, and some of those aspects could be seen as left-wing by association of those who tend to take to the beliefs I suppose. For example, I don't think there is something wrong with taking milk from another species "because it wasn't meant for us", and I don't think it's wrong to use animals for labor if they're treated well, and I don't make terrible comparisons to "rape" to refer to animal husbandry. These are some of the aspects of veganism that I feel are more of a personal opinion than a universal ethic or religious moral, and part of why I feel lacto-vegetarianism is more practical in general for most people. I have encountered vegans that are so radical that they even hate vegetarians, but I know they're not all like that, and I think they are doing something positive by abstaining from flesh.

    Yes, yes, it has taken long to get this far and it's not done yet. I'm satisfied, that's all I care about really. ;) Nobody is paying me to do this, unfortunately.

    Personally, I believe that it is more masculine to protect the weak than to prey on the weak unnecessarily. Also soy isn't needed at all to go without meat, and there have been studies showing no link between soy and lower testosterone. In the end, eat however you want, but I think it's good to be aware that it can be healthy, easy, and tasty to go without meat, and that any nutrient in meat that humans need can be found easily in plants or milk so the purpose of eating meat is therefore mostly for taste preference rather than nutrition. I don't want to tell people what to do, but I think that it is good to be aware of these things as part of the decision of how someone chooses to eat, and to make a conscious decision about it. For example, I think it is better to hunt and be aware of the whole process than to pick up prepackaged meats at the grocery store while hating hunters.

    It's not. It's real. It's just that the terrorism threat is totally different from what people believe. Surely it is there but it is not worth losing your freedoms over. In order to not lose your freedoms, do not let people in that in general do not believe in those freedoms.

    Broken clock ? I don't know, he could have stopped this much earlier. He could have done a lot of different things... He hasn't yet. I agree with this decision but, if that is the first or one of the first, then what does that say ?

    I haven't been visiting the site much lately, and haven't PM'd others about that, but I saw a plus rep from you today when I logged in and thought it was a funny joke that reminded me of him. Something about your posting style and topics of interest line up similarly to his, and he has come back many times, so at the least you remind me of him.
