Well, people over here have a habit of getting totally fucked up in semi-public places. If you're going to pass out on a couch at a crowded house party/club, you deserve to have shit stacked on you in a perilous manner.
Cruel? Kinda. Hilarious? Completely.
Also, I dated a frat boy for years - they make a habit of torturing each other when shitfaced. After a while it became almost ritual and a term evolved out of necessity.
Thanks for the translation. I actually have a degree in biochemistry but am working in IT now while I study philosophy on the side. I understand your apprehension in starting a biology group. However, if you have the passion you will be successful. This website has a lot of potential for growth and biologists are the most likely of all scientists to be atheist (statistically). I will offer any support you may need in setting up.
There is so much we can talk about on a biology group. For instance, did you hear about the recent discovery of the oldest species of turtle recovered? It has given scientists new clues about the evolution of the turtle shell....
Thanks for your reply. Yeah, I was just trying to come up with some cool sounding Latin phrase that might show that I am a monist. Could you show me how to say Nature is Enough in Hebrew (transcribed into English)?
About the biology group, I really think you should start one. Pharyngula is great and all but we biologists do really need a place to call ours here.
I just saw your comment at the science group asking about biogeeks. I'm one as well and am not aware if there is such a group here (other than Pharyngula). Maybe you can start one? Please consider joining the Naturalism group which I started: http://atheistnexus.org/group/naturalism
