I was referencing deaths in the 'war' going on. I guess I should have been more specific, considering the forum I'm posting in.

Normally Axel, I'd agree with you about the comment on 'dignity in death'. But this was a leader who some people had a nearly religious love for. By videotaping his moment of death, instead of leaving it unfilmed for the sake of his dignity, that guy managed to cut down the inevitable flood of "Sadd...

Well, this one didn't. He died confused and in the middle of reciting a holy prayer.

OOC: When Ralph goes on his little tirades (and I use the same term for when my 10 year old neice has a temper tantrum, and I have about the same respect for Ralph at this point), he never thinks about stuff like that. He's too busy frothing at the mouth and screaming to do anything like rational th...

And Hitler was kind to puppies and small children. At least in person. Irrelevant argument, Wanderwolf. You don't get a free pass on mass murder because you once helped a kitty down out of a tree, nor does your creed get a free pass on its violence, racism, misogyny, slavery, and jihadist ambitions...

The problem with your story RHJ is that you are going only by what gets into the news. When Muslim extremists blow up a bus stop and kill dozens, it makes the news. When a Muslim moderate walks/rides/drives to the store and buys bread and goes home peacefully, it doesn't make news. Which do you hone...

Even though I disagree with the invasion, here's to the death of a monstrous madman. Cheers all, and may God have mercy on his soul, even though he doesn't deserve it.

Mazanec, you have failed to notice several things about what I have proposed. Much like yourself, I believe that dropping the Mistwall would be tantamount to suicide, and most people with a shred of rationality would agree. What I propose is building trading posts IN SECRET and with no overt links e...

Well apparantly I am mistaken, at least in my reasons for believing there is no antiphoton, but at least the final conjecture they led to is correct. Right, but for all the wrong reasons so to speak. I apologize for giving out wrong information.

As usual, my esteemed colleague has voiced a strong stand, and has backed it up with adequate information, even though some of it is conjecture and opinion. However, when dealing with the future you must inevitably use conjecture anyways, so it is a moot point, but i digress. As both he and I have p...

Shyal, I don't even understand what the heck you are proposing. From what I gathered, you are proposing that we attempt to produce an anti-photon, similar to an anti-proton or anti-electron. By every, and i mean EVERY, theory about light, it is universally accepted to be MASSLESS. A massless particl...

I'm gonna reiterate several points here. 1: The speed of light IN A VACUUM is absolute. Light itself is a massless particle, and therefore cannot be accelerated by adding energy. Adding energy only shortens the wavelength of the light, in essence converting it to a higher energy form of EM radiation...

Ladies and gentlemen, while I am a fairly new member to this honored council, I have strong feelings on this subject. While in the short term, both the Expansionist and Free Trader sides have workable solutions to all the problems, I believe that the only side that has a long-term workable solution ...

Honestly, I have to say that in every experience I've ever had with RHJ, he's come across as extremely heavy-handed and hard-headed. A LONG time ago I tried to get into the forums and was shot down pretty quickly and left the forums because it was made very clear to me that nobody thought anywhere n...

Re: OT: Infinite Energy, Atlantis, and other meme's

Excuse me, but HOW are Aliens impossible? Any logical and rational mind will recognize the possibility of life arising elsewhere, and, whether it does or does not exist, the theory of its existance has not been disproven while proof does remain in favour of its existance (Such as gas clouds contain...

Five percent sounds about right. See, in any religion, the vast majority of the faith is made up of the <I>congregation</i>--- the followers who do little more than fill the pews. Their primary contribution to the faith is to drop money in the offering plate when it comes around... or raising funds...

I call having 5% of a religion be misguided and stupid (And that 5% number was VASTLY EXXAGERATED if you didn't catch that) to be exactly that... having stupid people involved. I fail to see how that 5% makes the other 95% of the people evil because they follow the same (generally speaking) faith. A...

The problem with the Islamics is Islam. As with the Nazis, the KKK, and any other racist, homicidal fanatics, Muslims stop being a problem in the world when they stop being practicing Muslims. When they stop following the leadership of a genocidal pedophilic Jihadist known as Mohammed, they can be ...

Do you honestly think that if all the Muslims in the world attacked Iraq, that we would lose? We're talking about a mob of poorly trained folks armed with, at most, small arms (which they've shown in Iraq that they don't know how to aim, much less use well) going up against the world's best-trained...

Hmm. RHJ, I have an entirely new question for you. WHAT KIND OF CHRISTIAN ARE YOU MAN!?! First off, those who have attacked us from the Islamic faith are a drop in the bucket compared to the number of peacful Muslims in the world. This religion advanced medicine, the rights of women (yes, I know how...
