So are you for or against piracy?

I am for piracy when you cannot afford a game when you are young, but against it when you obtain a good paying job and can then afford the games/movies.

I easily pirated over 200 PC games when I did not have the money to buy them. I did not want to be left out of my hobby simply because I did not have the ability to pay for it.

Now that I do, I buy all of my games and am giving back to the companies.

Ruler of the Universe sounds like a full time job.

Not for me!

You can delegate minions.

How can I trust the minions? And minions sooner or later always crave more power and will attack me.

I think they have the choice. It’s their life…

Also, you should demand the reason why you can’t see your grandma, and inform them of the legal rights to see your grandma.

But in the USA we do not have the right to choose death, society has the control – not the individual.

I asked my parents when I can see her, and they said ‘when she is in the cemetery’. These are normally liberal minded people who are educated, and it is not the death aspect or the illness rattling them, but my ideas that I said above.

I do not hate America so I cannot participate in this thread.

I am sure it is being monitored automatically by the CIA or FBI computer systems though!

Just a random question: do you believe that it is morally allowed to love a robot? What would you do if your best friend came up and said that he/she secretly loved robots? When I say “robot”, I mean “humanoid robot”, like some of the ones that are being worked on in Japan over the past few years (those robots are just examples: the robot you love needn’t be one that exists now, nor need it be Japanese).

(This is obviously a fantasy/sci-fi/future question. Just pretend it’s in the future and answer.)

Personally, I’m okay with it. I don’t see much difference between loving a person and loving a robot: love is love is love.

This is very odd, and people will not accept this for a really long time.

You cannot be in love with a robot because the robot cannot love you back – it is not human.

Is Fur murder? and what about taxidermy. I just want to hear some opinions on this topic

Fur is not murder. Fur has kept humans warm for thousands of years. You can have these days sustainable Furs. For every animal you kill for the fur, you raise 2.

If sex sells, why is it censored more than violence? Does not not defeat the purpose?

I was hoping to talk more about a persons right or lack of a right to decide to take their own life if they choose to.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Lower It (drinking age)

How about lowering the age to 18, and if violence and death numbers go up raise it back to 21?

Look how desperate no income black people are to get a terrible McDonalds job are. They are willing to KILL others for a minimum wage part time job.

Topic: Serious Discussion / We should let the old and weak die? Or not?

Why does society allow people to get so old that they lose their dignity and lose all quality of life, just to stay physically alive? My family insisted that my Grandma stay alive at all costs, even though she has been in a nursing home for 3 years, and broke her hip 7 months ago. She was taken to the hospital where she broke her leg and pelvis, and no surgeon would agree to operate due to her age and weakness.

So for the last 5 months she has been in a bizarre cast with all sorts of wires and cords holding her in a specific way, in a attempt to allow her 98 year old body to ‘mend’ her bones even though the doctor said they will not mend correctly without surgery. Surgery they refuse to do.

Every time I go see her, she is moaning and crying, and has told each of our family members separately that the pain is too much and that she wants to die in the way that " Mr. BooBoo died at Doc Pauls ".( Mr. BooBoo was her cat of 21 years who she had to have humanely euthanized )

She said that Mr. BooBoo ‘just went to sleep’ and that is how she wants do die, not hanging almost in the air. My family members all want her to ‘pull through’ and that she just needs to keep hanging on. I am the only one in my family who even ‘dared’ talk about what grandma said to everyone, and I have been accused of wanting to murder grandma. My family is very angry at me and blames ‘college’ for putting these ideas into my head.

I tried to put forth my argument, but they totally refuse to discuss anything, and they said that humans have the right to live their lives until the end, and that no one not even the person who is sick has the right to say otherwise. She said they will not allow grandma to commit suicide after she has lived such a rich and fruitful life. They also said if anyone else ‘helped’ grandma, that they would be charged with murder.

So I said in return that having grandma almost hanging in the air with bizarre casts and not able to move, with bed sores and slowly dying all the while suffering pain and crying all the time, is dignified? Grandma has a memory of her loved cat Mr. BooBoo being given ’a shot and then he went to sleep with no movement or pain and it was so peaceful ’ and society has the right to deny a individual the right to end the suffering when no hope of recovery? I ask them also what do they want a 98 year old woman to recover for, to DO? Run a race? Take up a new hobby such as swimming long distances? I then said they are being selfish.

They have not talked to me since, and just today I found out that somehow they have persuaded the hospital to not allow me to see my own grandmother. I have no idea how they did this, because the only one allowed to do this is my grandma, the patient. So now I am torn because who knows what poison my family is telling my grandmother. I have been very close to her for all my life, and I know she would not do this. I also suspect the family members told the hospital about my feelings and they are protecting the butts legally or something.

I have no intention of giving my grandmother drugs or helping her to do what she wishes. Now my living family members think I am insane or something, and our relationships have changed.

I must say that my family is very liberal, we are not close minded conservatives nor are we religious. I was shocked at these well educated people having such a hard line in not even discussing this.
I used to think politics and religion are not things to discuss with family members, but apparently end of life matters are the real problem!

So now that you know the topic, let us talk about the moral and legal issues I talked about above. Why are people so scared to even discuss these things?

Topic: Serious Discussion / Lower It (drinking age)

I am all for lowering the drinking age to 18, as long as you raise the legal driving age to 21 in all 50 states.
