Things to discuss this weekend

Why, since listening to children scream and shout at one another hurts our heads and heart do we calm ourselves by turning on the television to watch rich folk scream and shout?


Why do editors no longer edit for content?


On Feb 22 Nat Geo speculated that a small nuclear war could lower global warming for years. Should we thank the Japanese nuclear energy industry for their sacrifice?


Suppose Donald Trump, Charlie Sheen, any Kardashian or (name your own) were never heard from again?


Of all who ever lived, who would you want to have a long lingering lunch with?


With your mate's acquiescence, would you hook up with your first love for a weekend?


Might Earth be some other planet's hell?


How has social networking made you a better person?


As Cole Porter wrote: "Good authors too who once knew better words, Now only use four letter words, Writing prose, Anything Goes". But are we better for it?.


Is religion a necessity for belief in god?


Discuss amongst yourselves, and enjoy your weekend.

Why does so much nitwittery come from the left? Theoretically a small nuclear incident could cause short term ghlobal cooling at the expense of just about everything else. Further, since there is no proof that global warming is anthropogenic, attempting to counter the alleged warming with an anthropogenic trigger is an utterly asinine and dangerous mission.
Sorry, Toad. That one is a sore spot.
Have a nice weekend!

Let's not disregard the nutwittery that comes from the right.

Great questions MrToad!!! Hope you have a great weekend!

Why, since listening to children scream and shout at one another hurts our heads and heart do we calm ourselves by turning on the television to watch rich folk scream and shout?
---We like to outsource our passion.

Why do editors no longer edit for content?
---Editors are too closely linked with marketing, ownership, and sponsorship.

On Feb 22 Nat Geo speculated that a small nuclear war could lower global warming for years. Should we thank the Japanese nuclear energy industry for their sacrifice?
---Dear God.

Suppose Donald Trump, Charlie Sheen, any Kardashian or (name your own) were never heard from again?
---See questions 1 and 2.

Of all who ever lived, who would you want to have a long lingering lunch with?
---My grandmother who died when I was 10.

With your mate's acquiescence, would you hook up with your first love for a weekend?
---Sure, but only because my first love was the voice of Astrud Gilberto, and my wife would likely let me listen to old records for a full weekend.

Might Earth be some other planet's hell?
---Earth is very likely THIS planet's hell.

How has social networking made you a better person?
---It has provided my with many more cautions.

As Cole Porter wrote: "Good authors too who once knew better words, Now only use four letter words, Writing prose, Anything Goes". But are we better for it?.
---F**k no!

Is religion a necessity for belief in god?
---Probably not, since belief in God is obviously not necessary for religion.

Regarding nitwittery from the left I'll just say: Ann Coulter, Glenn Beck, Michelles Malkin and Bachmann. Oh and can't forget Sarah Palin. Try as I may.

Regarding some of the other interesting questions:

I've never seen a Real Housewives episode, and I'm proud of the fact.

Trump/Sheen/Kardashian's absence would not be felt by me.

I'd also like to lunch with my grandmother who died when I was 4.

Brett would let me hook up with my first love, but I have no desire to do so.

Social networking, as I suspected before I became apart of it, doesn't really DO anything.

Religion is not necessary for a belief in god. I'm having a hard time finding much good that comes from organized religion at all.

Yes, I agree. The Right has it's Godforsaken Drug War and other fascist policies. However, it does not negate the utter stupidity of the Church of Global Warming and its minions.

Toad, as triage goes, your questions don't rate a nod compared to the Libyan situation unfolding this evening. I hope I awaken tomorrow and find that the flickering North African ember hasn't turned into a huge global war of well-armed, highly-impassioned hate-the-west fury. Have we been snookered into partial engagement? again? Despite our declaration of "no ground troops," will things escalate to the point where we are obliged to assist our compatriots who might be on the ground?

On edge tonight.
