  1. MOP, with all due respect I went to bed last night thinking, "That guy sounds a lot like the typical college kid who just took Psych 102 and now thinks they're an expert in the field," and I woke up this morning to find I probably wasn't far off. I don't mean that as an insult, I just think you are quick to dismiss some things and accept others, and you're a little all over the place here to have a meaningful discussion. In our exchange, you twice referenced the fight for equal rights in the 80s/90s but then said this discussion has nothing to do with equal rights. You said you're just cu
  2. I undestand IE, not sure how old you are and I'm not talking down to you but the gay rights movement in the late 80s/early 90s was predicated on them being born that way. If you said it was a choice they attacked you. And all I'm saying is that there is a difference between a genetic gene of some kind and turning out that way because of influences both good and bad that one experinces in their lives. Forget the rights IE, I'm not against any of that really I'm not. But I am interested in the psychology of the whole thing. The part I don't want to get into in this thread is the relative newness
  3. Wasn't everyone turned down on their first try?Yes Moops, we all were, but it impacts everyone differently. I believe that a certain percentage and it might not be a lot but a certain percentage of folks that claim to be homosexuals, got that way by things that happened in their childhood, both good and bad. Maybe the 1st person that they could identify with happened to be the same sex and they developed true feelings of love for that person and then act on it. That seems like a very normal natural loving way to possibly enter being a homosexual, I don't think all of them were molested along t

  5. I think it's important to understand the motivation behind the question. Are you trying to compare people who were born homosexual against people who "became" homosexual due to environmental influences, or are you trying compare people who are homosexual (whether by genetics or environmental factors) against people who "choose" to be homosexual? If it's the latter, the "choice" argument is pretty trivially refuted and thus it's a pointless question. If it's the former, even if such a distinction exists, even if you could distinguish between the two, what would be the point? Would you besto
  6. Technically I should have voted 90+ I suppose, but I assumed we weren't voting to 12 significant digits so I just rounded up.
  7. Well, X. One of Buffett's main points is that the superrich shouldn't be paying less in taxes (proportionately) than everyone else. You can be for tax cuts and still agree with this point. Additionally, I'm all for the true producers keeping their wealth - they earned it - but you can't say the same for kids of the superrich who basically won the genetic lottery. I have no problem taxing their winnings.
  8. It's an interesting topic, but I'm cofused - is there some reason I missed that it's especially relevant this morning? This is an old story.
  9. The first two pages of this thread: :lmao: Page three:
  10. What do you tell a woman with two black eyes? You should advise her to apply ice packs intermittently to the bruised area to reduce swelling, and vitamin K cream may help accelerate the healing process. Also, if she is in pain make sure she doesn't take aspirin, as its anticoagulant properties could make the bruise larger and result in a longer healing process.
  11. A black man walks into a bar with a parrot on his shoulder. The bartender says, "Wow, that's an amazing creature! Where did you get it?" The black man responds, "Thank you! I got him at Broverman's Pet Shop, down the street." The bartender then replies, "Well, that is a beautiful bird, but unfortunately you can't keep it in here."
  12. I've done this dozens of times and always, always come out INTP. I just took this one and for the first time ever I am an INTJ.
  13. Just found this thread - I assume if it's 21 pages long that this is either an amazing deal or a hilarious fail of ptts proportions. Is this legit? Are the jerseys good quality, etc? If so I'll likely order at least one and I'm sure I can round up a few more orders from friends...
