Oh surely you can do better than that.

If you hack a star fish, or jellyfish, to piecies, is it cruelty given that such species have no brain to feel any pain.??????????????????????????

First off 97-98% of the trees I remove are dead, diseased , dangerous, or encroaching .

In the USA P. C. (Politically Correct) has gotten so out of control I've been asking for years a play on the old philosophical tree question with a twist ..........

" If a bigger tree trips a smaller tree in the forest causing it to fall and use profanity such as

...."Son of a Beech"........or.........."What a dumb Ash"..........or ....."Kiss my Aspen".............

Do any of the other trees get offended by the profanity or lack of Political Correctness ..?? "

Of course orgasms are real! But empirically so, or transcendentally? Wear a Kantian hat should you wish, but I'm thinking more in terms of the Buddhist notion of a point in space, in time. Orgasms are very "now." I tend not to think so much about the orgasms I've had on any given day, or how great they may have been (although I DO remember that series of orgasms in one 24 hour period in '94, and they were pretty damned boffo! But that's the exception, and not the rule). So what does it take for an orgasm to go from the transcendental to the empirical? Can they?

i personally don't find the 9-11 incident to be that big a deal....in warfare it is always the innocent that suffer the most.....

I think you'd find it a big deal Rust In Peace, if it was one of your family members that died there. Or if the same thing happened here in Australia.

Rust In Piece...Are you for REAL????

People attacked this country for the sole purpose to KILL thousands.....

They didn't wish to take over the country, or rob for money, invade, etc etc etc....

Their sole mission was to KILL INNOCENT PERIOD.

To declare war is No Big Deal....

I'm almost at a lost of words from your statement, and that is very rare for me.

I was happy last summer when your PM told the exstremist to conform to Aussie life or leave..(in so many words)

Rust, you are not one of the David Hicks attornies, are you??

Can't happen, Cuddly. Your profile makes it very clear that you're not looking NOW...

that's right if my family were in those towers it would be a travesty.....but they weren't
if they were in hiroshima ww2.....but they weren't
vietnam
iraq
israel
palestine
northern ireland
korea
ww1
rwanda
etc
etc
etc

it is no big deal cos using violence to solve problems is normal and an accepted practice in human histroy, and my guess shall be normal for us till we cease to exist....
