"You walk up to people and sniff them? Really? OK.That's unusual, but so be it. Other humans are primarily visual, they react primarily to appearances.
Confidence and so on are fine things, but they are not what people screen on, to start with.…"
"Unfortunately, we don't really know what happened. We can speculate endlessly about who thought what and who did what to whom, and sit and second-guess things, but ultimately, none of us were there. It may have been self-defense, and race may…"
"It's impossible to say. There are only two people in the world who actually know what happened; one is dead and the other isn't talking about it. The rest of us can only speculate and make up theories; we don't know what really…"
"Eh. This is just another tempest in a teapot. Sure, it's a bit tasteless, but hell, people auction Nazi memorabilia all the time, and no one says anything. It's his personal property, and he can do what he wants with it.…"
I do feel a bit powerless. Politics have become so polarized that I frequently despair of seeing anything get done. At this point my main hope is that nothing disastrous happens. And of course, over the last eight years, even that hope has…"
"Sadly, for the overwhelming majority of people, "chemistry" is simply a code word for "Are they hot?". Naturally, everyone denies this, but their actions contradict them. Women are just as guilty of this as men, if not more…"
"I suspect that I am at heart, a moderate. However, others tend to project onto you whatever they want to see. Religious people declare that I am a flaming liberal, while political leftists shriek that I am a far-right conservative.
I have consistant…"
"You know, it's hard to say. I come from a political family, and one of the things that I have learned from that exposure is that what candidates say in public is often almost meaningless.
Quite honestly, I'm not terribly worried about any…"
"Ah, but Tom -
Since Granny never met your grand-dad, (you killed him first) she's fair game - just the gal living down the street from young Gramps.
Plus, since in the alternate time line, you don't exist, you're effectively no…"
"Michael, you got me beat. You won election; I didn't.
There's another state-supported (aks taxpayer-supported) "religion" in America. Questioning it has resulted in career changes for many who studied mathematics and…"
"I actually came up with a way to implement time travel into the past that does NOT violate causality.
Let's say you hop into your time machine and arrive 40 years before you were born. You take a gun and shoot your grandfather before he has…"
"Wow, you got me beat. I grew up in the desert (Nevada) and was accustomed to hot weather, but have lived up here so long now that I would never be able to take that again.
I'm actually not terribly "conservative" on an absolute scale…"
"Michael, I ran during a hot Arizona summer. After work and on Saturdays I walked every street in my district, about six square miles. I liked meeting voters but once was enough. The most hostile reaction was having a door closed the moment I said I…"
Hello Michael, and welcome to this friendly world of rational good sense and intelligent reasoning---with its thousands of freethinkers who recognise how religions deceive and control vulnerable people beginning sadly with innocent children.
