Re: The Race Relations/Diversity/Equality Thread

All of these news stories over the past number of years have really been feeding a strong anti-America bias in me. I cannot fathom how a country which makes such suggestions seriously (and sometimes even passes laws) about women and immigrants (legal or illegal) and non-white people is meant to be n...

Oi, Arizona... I'm really baffled how the government thought it'd be easier to get every company to fund healthcare instead of just funding it themselves through taxes. It'd at least cut out the issue of people whining about what they have to include in a plan and defending it with some cobbled defi...

Historically they were the result of failing to trim the edges of the sheet which was folded and cut into pages (if you look at older books you will sometimes find pages that haven't yet been cut apart). Today they are, I presume, an attempt at looking old-timey.

I can reconcile sapience with a "father knows best" mindset (as you put it) because people are cruel and have a hard time walking a mile in someone else's shoes.

I cracked open a bottle last night. It tastes pretty good, although, as expected, strongly of treacle. It's not as fizzy as would be nice, so I suspect I didn't bottle it soon enough. It also did not have very much alcohol, which is not necessarily a bad thing, although I managed to down an entire 7...

It's been a few years since I've seen it, but my memory of the ape costumes was that they were pretty good, all things considered.

Freakiest moment ever when I was 8 years old, though, was when they woke up near the beginning and saw the female crew member all... whatever she was.

I had a professor who told me what he likes to do is hand plagiarised papers back to the student with the citation of where they took their stuff written across the top. Then he usually gives them a very short but possible time to hand in their own work.
