Topic: Off-topic / CAN A COMPETIVE VIDEO GAME BE CONSIDERED A SPORT?

I like to think of it as a competition of skill.

It might not be a “sport” in the traditional sense but…

You can’t deny the similarities.

Because only in America do people trample each other for cheap stuff just one day after being thankful for what we already have.


Discuss Black Friday.

Happy turkey genocide day.

You don’t like Turks, do you?

The Turks are good people.

I’m referring to the concept of giving thanks. It’s a good concept. Unfortunately, some turkeys need to die for that.

Topic: Off-topic / Easy solution for the Ferguson problem

Here’s something to think about:

The media rams down our throats the fact that it’s a race problem, that it’s all because of race, and doing that doesn’t do anything to stop racism.
Instead of “White police officer shoots unarmed black teenager”, why can’t it just be “Police officer shoots unarmed teenager.”

Topic: Off-topic / Dust Bowl

The dust bowl was a bowl of dust. It was extremely dusty. The dust bowl descended onto the earth, bringing dust to the planet. History was forever changed by the arrival of dust to the world.


Serious answer: You should do research on your topic and not rely on OT

Topic: Off-topic / Girls need more freedom.

If another person assaults me with the intention to cause harm and I am in danger, then I will defend myself with the appropriate amount of force, regardless of gender or any other factor.

It’s simple self preservation, the most basic instinct.

wtf since when are you not French
also “not the main reason” – confirmed that it’s a reason

When did he say he was French?

It’s because the name Gabidou is the name of a French character.

Well op, it’s quite possible for someone to be so mad that they die.

I thought you could only die of extreme sadness and or shock. Not of madness.

Anger increases your heart rate and blood pressure. It is possible to be so angry that you get a heart attack or an aneurism.

sd plz

I am teaching something to aguspal. Do you want him.to just be ignorant forever?

well how many sexes are there

Technically the three main categories are: female, intersex, male. Within both categories are a lot of variation in terms of chromosomes/physical parts/etc so honestly it’s really just out there at that point as to sex in general.

Wrong. There are two. The others are mutations.

There are only two sexes.

Genders on the other hand…
That’s where things can get complicated.

Topic: Off-topic / DO YOU AGREE with SINGLE SEX schools?

Originally posted by Ganthro:

No, I don’t think so. Like Spookyskeleton said, people who do this are probably the same parents that shelter their kids from the real world. If they get “distracted”, then they have attention issues that need to be addressed directly rather than catered to.

That’s just my personal opinion on it. But at the end of the day, I don’t really care. I don’t really think that single-sex schools are hurting anyone (significantly), but I think that it’s kind of a foolish notion.

But they are hurting those children. There is something important in life that can only be truly learned through experience, and that thing is interacting with other people. In this case, specifically interacting with people of the opposite gender. Children in one sex schools are being isolated from something that is very real in society. It is human nature, created by evolution, to be “distracted” by the opposite gender. People must learn from a young age to understand that distraction and how to interact with others. Children in one sex schools are behind in learning an important part of life.

I think that fear of failiure can create a drive to succeed.

You can be driven to succeed because you are afraid of failing.

Topic: Off-topic / Genetically modified foods

Genetically modified foods are only the first step in what will eventually grow to be the much larger industry of genetic engineering. Today we are creating more resilient foods with greater nutritional content. Eventually, we will be using similar technology to create fitter humans and improve our species.

Genetic engineering and the research currently being done on genetic modification has greater implications than just our food, the fitness of our entire species will be affected by this technology.

I say Books.
They are of little use these days.

Please don’t tell me you’re serious.

Technically, there is no purpose that a book serves that cannot be served by a computer, tablet, or cell phone.

If books were to suddenly disappear one day, society would be able to deal with it much more easily than if some other form of media went away.

Topic: Off-topic / Weed might be legalized here this year :D

Think of the money that would be saved without the “drug war”. Think of the higher quality of the drugs themselves when producers and sellers are required to get official permits. Think of all the new jobs that would be created in the recreational drug industry.

I don’t do drugs, but I still think legalization would be good.

Not as much as you might think. Whilst it is true there is a great deal of technology available to the modern solidier, it’s all in separate units that must be carried on the soldier’s person. If memory serves, it’s somewhere around 100lbs of equipment, and would be higher save that’s the limit that can be expected to be carried for the long haul.

This is actually why infantry assistance units like Boston Dynamics’ BigDog were developed in the first place; they’re additional equipment carriers, there to take the loads of additional equipment the soldiers cannot realistically be expected to carry themselves.

That’s true, strength is still important to an extent. But what about when something like this is perfected and finds widespread use? Which I have a good feeling will happen within our lifetimes. Then, even marching infantry will not have a difference between men and women since all of them will have technology that allows them to have more strength than a normal human could.

As it is right now though, women performing completely equal to men mostly exists in support roles such as engineers and medical staff as well as vehicle crews. But as technology advances, that will change.

The psychological factor for areas not requiring strong physical ability is a whole ’nother can of worms.

Is this implying that women are less psychologically capable than men? I find this untrue. If they receive the proper training, the same training that the men receive, they can perform just was well under psychological pressure as men.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Should women serve in the military?

It’s not all about strength though. Back in the days of swords and shields, physical strength and fitness were a soldier’s greatest asset. But times have changed. A woman can aim a gun just as well as a man. A female fighter pilot can be just as effective as a male one. A crew of women could operate a tank or a battleship just as well as men can, and having a mixed gender crew wouldn’t make a difference either. With the help modern technology, even if the average woman is less physically strong than the average man, they can still perform most functions with equal efficiency.

In today’s world, war is less about the physical strength of individual soldiers and more about the use of superior technology. The biggest reason why there aren’t more women in the military is because many people in society discourage it, while in reality, women can contribute equally as much as men.

Topic: Off-topic / SHOULD ASSISTED suicide be allowed?

A person who is mentally stable who wishes to end their own life because they are suffering from an incurable disease should be allowed to do so. I don’t really see a reason why they shouldn’t.
