1. Life on Mars Mar 26, 2004, 10:19 rist3903
 
"They are probably not going to survive in 200 kelvin conditions and in sulphuric acid...Maybe they could. And maybe we've just done a really terrible thing."

I don't understand why the concept of spreading life to a planet that may not have had it in the first place would be considered such a terrible thing. Humans are incredibly clumsy about this sort of thing, and if we are going to have further interaction with Mars we are going to do it sooner or later. Granted the new bacteria we brought might not get along with any potentially there already, but I'm sure they will find a balance in such a case, devouring each other and teaching one another new tricks. What, exactly, is the problem?

If they pull this off the real world applications are interesting to think about.

Are you talking about surviving it by now taking however many years to dissolve in the gizzard of that thing? If so, I don't know if I would call that a fully realized existence.

Somebody came up with the model of the helicopter in halflife and Gabe Newell offered the first person to come up with a fun and interesting way to put it in the game a meal at a fancy restaurant. And all went their seperate ways and thought on this and eventually one came up with how it is implimented- and it became a particularly cool aspect of the game that no one had ever done in a fps before. It just doesn't seem like such a situation would come up in the ironed out by-the-numbers process you seem to be describing. I think the gleam will fade from several peoples' eyes in the industry as they are assigned their place on the assembly line. I could be mistaken though.

Edited for clarity

Maybe Boba turkey basted himself a little clone of his own before he went into the belly of the beast. Ya never know! It was kind of annoying to see someone supposedly so badass get offed so easily.

IF linux ever becomes as widely used as windows(not any time this decade), expect to see just as many viruses and worms that target that platform.

And if that happens people will be considering the third or fourth operating system that is out by then. With the software equivalent of biodiversity, there comes a greater resistance to infectious software.

192. Thats the problem with research Feb 27, 2004, 00:57 rist3903
 
There is no such thing as an objective opinion. A cursory look at that web page that you provided reveals this:

Welcome to renewedheart.com our mission is to provide you with information from the word of God that will change your life and transform your soul. Visit this site as often as you like and read our updated articles.

Ok. Because this is a religious based webpage, any information you get off of it will be strongly slanted and spun in such a away as to support the word of God, or as I like to think of it, the word of people insisting that they are the mouthpiece of God. These people have an agenda, that being that they wish everyone not with them to convert to their religion. In order to do such a thing, they must maintain the concept that something that they consider a character flaw such as homosexuality must be a choice on the part of the individual, one that can be renounced as you are introduced into, or taken back into the fold.

Any time you take one source of information and hold it as gospel, you close your mind to the possibility that the people who have provided this information to you have done so with any ulterior motives, such as reinforcing beliefs that you may have been indoctrinated with.

A quick look around the web also provided:

http://www.godlovesfags.com/bible/choice.html

and

http://milepost1.com/~gaydad/FAQ/faq2.html

You may want to look at these, as they offer another point of view on the matter. While this is highly unlikely to change your view on the matter, your potential viewing of these websites will make you more informed on the subject, and to contemplate a point of view and discard it is a vast improvement over not knowing of its existence.

P.S. This is not solely a Christian thing, to spin ideas and events to suit your purposes. All religions do this- in fact all gatherings of people for any reason whatsoever tend to do this. Not to mention individuals. But one thing to note, you may want to be wary of any set of ideas that does not provide references.

The problem with that logic is that our population is currently aging too rapidly without enough young people to pay for our pensions and support us later in life. Although I hate kids, I'd like to see more for that reason alone.

And the only problem with that is that its just an organic pyramid scheme.

People should get tax breaks for NOT having children. The last thing the world needs is more children where the consideration of paying less taxes is even remotely a factor in their conception. Those are going to be some stellar parents. Oh yeah...

Ok heres a summary.
Conservatives:We are right.
Liberals:You are wrong, we are right.
Conservatives and liberals in chorus(speaking to each other):That is a load of hogwash! I stand flabbergasted at your wildly divergent thought patterns!

edit: I guess this is more of a synopsis than a summary.

156. Re: No subject Feb 26, 2004, 19:43 rist3903
 
My main gripe with this though is that I do not want my children growing up and thinking that it is OK for two people of the same sex to be married. It is a personal issue, but I believe most of the people who feel strongly about this feel the same way.

And there you have it. A concise and clear vector for transgenerational viral ideologies. To paraphrase: I think it is wrong and I dont want my children to think it is right. I also believe I am in the majority in this view.

There is a movie that concerns this concept that may prove illuminating, provided you are openminded enough to take a recommendation. The movie is Monster's Ball. Try not to dismiss it out of hand as something you cannot relate to in any way (it does not contain homosexual relations).
