TheUrgeToSneeze replied to CD's discussion What do you think of the death penalty?
"The death penalty, on a purely economical basis, is obscenely stupid. The cost of keeping inmates on Death Row for years - sometimes decades - is exorbitantly expensive. I don't think there is ever a need for a moral debate here. No government…"

"This is an issue where there is a disconnect between image and meaning. The design's intent is that the shoes are so cool that you'd want to shackle them to you so nobody could steal them. However, Adidas failed to recognize that…"

TheUrgeToSneeze replied to Latch33570's discussion Mandatory service to the govt.
"I think this is an interesting question. The word "mandatory" will make this debate more incendiary than is necessary, so let's remove that qualifier for now. I certainly think that the government should develop more programs that…"

TheUrgeToSneeze commented on Michelle (Books Admin)'s blog post Which books did Santa bring you?
"@penpusher The Lexicographer's Dilemma sounds excellent. It reminds me of "Eats Shoots and Leaves", a book about proper grammar that is both informative and hilarious.   I received "Behold the Spirit" and "The book…"

"This discussion is off topic. We are not debating the necessity of Mother's Day, Valentines Day, Black History Month or the lack of "Straight White Male" month."

TheUrgeToSneeze replied to Sara NoH's discussion Feminism, Sexism and Other Misunderstood Things
"I agree completely. The problem is that these many feminist factions approach their obstacle as many different obstacles and tend to single mindedly go about rectifying the obstacle that only they face. E.g. the early feminists were middle and upper…"

TheUrgeToSneeze replied to Sara NoH's discussion Feminism, Sexism and Other Misunderstood Things
"I haven't read all 39 pages - I've skimmed - so forgive me if we have gone over this but: I think there are two debates here: 1) where feminists stand, how they deal with issues and are perceived and 2) the united states as a patriarchy…"

The Tale of the Fed Up Father and The Troublesome Bouncy Ball.

Several years ago my sibling obtained a rubber bouncy ball. The toy was one of those sparkly affairs with a noise making mechanism embedded in the middle that activated when the ball hit a surface. At first, it was all fun and games – bouncing the toy off our heads and chucking it at each other’s butts. And then things changed.

Hello! Thanks for commenting on my blog post. I can't say that I've heard of Alan Watts, but hurrah for getting the books you'd like for Christmas. And I hope your extended Christmas was just as happy the second time around :)
