Re: 1541: "Voice"

Sounds like utter crap, otherwise we'd see left-right brain separation in other primates and mammals. The point is that humans have a unique form of consciousness not seen in other animals. Drawing parallels and creating hierarchies is dangerous. Some people rate wolves and dogs as highly intellige...

Re: 1534: "Beer"

If bitter flavors are good to most adults, why don't you eat more of it besides dark chocolate, arugula, and bitter melon? Where are all the bitter foods, and so why primarily drink bitter things and not eat them? There's no shortage of bitter flavors in various greens, root vegetables, fruits, and...

Re: 1061: "EST"

We should all refuse to use any scale that isn't based on Planck units, so when we encounter other intelligent life we'll be doing keg-stands by day 3 instead of trying to figure out what a bleptominute is in Zeta-Ridiculan time.

Re: "Friends" Discussion

-You blurt out your hidden attraction to someone who is of an incompatible orientation. It's not cute; they won't make exceptions; welcome to the land of the dead. (Chasing Amy is the worst "relationship" movie of all time.) If you knew beforehand, it was a mistake to bring it up at all, ...
