A-I-D-S
(unless you're a lesbo)
men sticking their cocks into another man's asshole is one of the leading causes of the aids epidemic.
please don't spout some bullshit ,cover-up factoids perpetrated by ''act up'', or some such fag organization, in a weak-dicked attempt at dispersing the blame to all mankind....

Wow, so HIV spreads magically to straight people when gays fuck each others butts?

We're all going to prefer Mininova now.  Where are their servers located?

Continue using TPB, their servers are spread throughout the world, and there's no way the fascists will be able to take them down.  If we stop using TPB, the fascists will see it as a victory.

Yeah, I've lived here all my life. As an average person you'll make between 44-50K USD, and will pay a progressive income tax starting at about 30% for an average income. On top of that, your employer pay 14% employment tax, and you'll pay a value added tax at 8% for public transportation,14% for food, and 25% for everything else. If you are self employed, you'll pay roughly half of your result as tax, corporations pay 28% of the profit, and owners and stockholders pay another 28% of the money they take out.

Show me the Gay Gene.  If you can't show it to me, then your claims that people are "Born Gay" are ridiculous.

Here's the Gay Gene:



Bishop Gene Robinson is as gay as they get.

On a serious note, there's been done plenty of studies, including twin studies, that show that it is very likely that some people are born gay, while others develop the gay at some point in their life.

He's right. And wrong. If you look at the stats from orgs like the UN, you'll find the Scandinavian countries on the top of a lot of positive statistics. But at the same time, you'll find the US on the top of a lot of other statistics. No one in Norway is without health insurance, because the state practically has a monopoly on health care. But at the same time, we have long waiting lines, where people from time to time actually die waiting for necessary surgery. If you need something like orthopedic surgery, you may find yourself being home from work for months before a hospital can find the resources to do it. My fiance has a heart condition that is not too serious, but gives her rythmic problems she avoids with medication. It's treatable once and for all with surgery. She had her file sent from a heart specialist physician to the hospital that would do the surgery, and two months later she recieved a letter from the hospital that she'd been put on a waiting list. Would that happen in the US? Probably not, as far as I know there are no waiting in lines over there if you're insured. In the statistics you'll find that the customer satisfaction percentage is much higher in the US than in the Scandinavian countries. You'll find issues like this in all aspects of the Scandinavian welfare states.

A fun example to pull out of the hat is the employment rate of Somali refugees. The Scandinavian welfare states makes sure that none of the refugees that have gotten to stay are without money or shelter. But at the same time it totally cripples them, and they are turned into lifelong clients of the state. The employment rate is the lowest of any "group". Compared to the US, where the welfare state is not as generous as in Scandinavia, the employment rate of Somalis is significantly higher. State welfare is extremely expensive and destructive to those it's meant to help.

The Polling Pit / Re: What OS (operating system) are you using

  • (1) Many Linux package repositories have a version of Firefox that was compiles by drunken Lisp programmers.  I played around with that situation during my Gentoo / LFS days and got some improvement.



Thanks dude, I now run the Windows version of FF through Wine and it works much better than the Linux version. :D

I just started using Xubuntu, and I'm loving every second of it. Except when Firefox crashes, which is way too often.

Goddamn, linux is really starting to rule on userfriendliness. I've just gotten my Xubuntu running great straight out of the box, have installed Spotify through Wine easily, have mounted the NTFS partition where I keep my media just by editing fstab a bit, and have just managed to share the media with my 360 without any hassle whatsoever. And on my prehistoric box, the Xubuntu smoothly. Good bye, Windows!

just wait til you've tried puppy linux 4.2

I'll definitely try it some time, but now I'm sticking with my wonderful Xubuntu. By the way, what's your part in this puppy linux thing, just a satisfied user or are you involved somehow? ;)

I just installed Ubuntu on my box. Unfortunately, this box was excavated by archeologists and dated to about 2.000BC, so it's running really sluggish. I'm downloading Kubuntu and will try that, would you über nerds agree that that's a good call, or are there any other distros that a hopeless n00b like should try in such a circumstance?
The KDE environment (kubuntu) has more "pretty" features and will run slower than Gnome (ubuntu).  Easiest thing to do is add more ram, if you're running under 1 gig of it all of the "pretty" things are just gonna lag your box.

Yeah, I most definitely found out. And it's an ugly little bastard as well. I tried it out for five minutes and downloaded Xubuntu. So now I've been through three versions of Ubuntu in one day. I think I should get a life.
