What it misses is a reference to the date of the strip the beginning is referring to. At least we know that the ability to call and gain the cooperation of animals is not at all uncommon. Nessie is apparently self-taught, but not unique, since even black ribbon Quentyn can do it. Oh, and that was on...

Let's put it this way:

What if 300 abortion clinics a year were burned? Or even 30?

Or 30 NAACP buildings?

Well, Japanese pachinko is effectively a form of gambling, as you can win balls by playing well and cash in any balls you have left when done. But IIRC Ben isn't offering pachinko. Pachinko IS NOT gambling. Playing games for money is illegal under Japanese law. All of what you say is true. However,...

If the statistics regarding a period in Arkansas while Bill Clinton was there is any indication, it is very few.

Remember when Bill Clinton claimed to remember the burning of black churches in Arkansas? Problem was that, during the period in question there had been NONE!

Yes, there was an analogy. There was an evaluation of the differences and similarities of two hypothetical situations. Analogy. And it remains unapt for the reasons you did not address, here I restate: It compares the born to the unborn, and the bearer cannot provide legal dissaproval. If that's no...

This analogy in not apt because it compares a fetus (albeit human) to a newborn (ableit animal.) There are laws concerning abandonment and infanticide in humans, and they are (as they should be) harsher than laws regarding the equivalent in animals. Besides which, there is little or no way for a do...

Okay, first of all... The Myth Busters already busted the myth about the guy getting electrocuted by pissing on the third rail. The reason--the stream will turn into globules and the connection is lost. Same thing here, and it's two streams. The cohesive nature of wter is such that by the time it wo...

I'm not sure I should be jumping into this discussion, but anyway... There are other arguments besides when life begins against the unfettered use of abortion: 1) Say a man owns a female dog. He does not have her spayed. He does not keep her from having contact with other dogs, particularly male dog...

You gotta remember:

This is a government that is so secure in its security, that it is blatantly rubbing the rebels' noses in it. So, they don't need to keep anything on standby. It wastes energy.

Kinda like re-deploying the troops to Okinawa so they are ready to reinvade Iraq at a moment's notice.

Besides, we already have slim and trim Nip and Tuck.

And Ben is a bear. You expect bears to be rotund.

And personally, I agree with Wanderwolf. I think he would look better Andy-sized.
