Actually, non-religious homophones, albeit, they are rare oddities, make a lot more sense than the former. (19 hrs ago | post #26)
Openly gay actors get lower marks for masculinity? I wonder what the studies have to say about Vin diesel. (Monday May 13 | post #3)
The odds of you ending up on an island with a bunch of men seems more probable. The main differences are there'll be orange jumpsuits, prison meals, and a cell you're locked in 23 hours a day for months on end. Call it a hunch, but I think anyone who could possibly hate others as you do is probably going to end up in prison at some time for some reason. Meanwhile, my husband and I will enjoy many saturday afternoons drinking our mimosas together shortly before sex, while you're off stuck in a cell with bubba getting prison-raped.

There has not been a single good comment in this forum yet. When I get to my PC, I wil be sure to make ample use of the report abuse button because there isn't anything but troll fodder being passed around here. Anyway, this is adorable, but I'm not even sure if at that young age a boy can know he wants a prince and not a princess. It is possible though and many adults who grew up to be gay knew as young as 5 that they were somehow different. I think I told my grandma when I was about that age that I wanted a husband (saying of course that 'girls are icky'). Who knows, but I think it is great this kid has parents open and accepting of him no matter. (Sunday May 5 | post #30)
Sorry, Topix weirdness bug that they never fixed (here's a clue, it has something to do with server keys [or lack thereof] and duplicate form submissions). (Wednesday Apr 24 | post #3)
A fundamentalist interpretation? I recall reading the first pages of the Book of Mormon, and throwing it across the room because it was a story, reminiscent of Abraham and Isaac, except instead of God rescuing the kid, his own father murdered him and was praised by god. Ugghhh.... (Wednesday Apr 24 | post #2)

Common, don't be ridiculous. If I could share a picture of what it looks like, then I would. The key reason for putting the veggies on the rooftop is to keep pests away. Also, they get better sunlight up there. Put your garden wherever you want, but if you try out what I'm recommending, you will be impressed by the results. (Wednesday Apr 24 | post #32090)
Umm... I don't know how much boating you have done, but there is definitely an oily sheen over the water almost everywhere I have gone, even in the Bahamas. If the sun hits it just right from a distance, you can usually see it, and it stretches all directions. Out past Hawaii, there is a garbage pile about the size of Louisiana just floating out there.

Actually, it is not so hard, and I think more people will adopt urban farming techniques as the culture progresses. Environmental benefits aside, just having a lower electricity bill is reason enough. The vegetables are the kicker. Not sure how high or steep your roof is, but all you have to do for most is stick a couple tomato plants in a bag of compost, hook up a water line if you want (or use the hose, and lay the bag near the edges. Those tomato plants will grow so well, you wouldn't believe it until you tried it. Harvesting on top a ladder is kind of a pain in the ass though, but small price to keep it out of reach of the bugs.

Eh-hem, how wonderfully pro-life of you... (Monday Apr 22 | post #1545)

I would not want to live in a Hobbit-house either, but that is just a matter of preference. Industry can also begin manufacturing homes and buildings built with rooftop terrace and achieve the same or better in terms of sustainability. A feasible approach to climate mitigation, if everyone kept a rooftop vegetable garden, such lowers urban economic dependence on farmed food, the gas used to ship it, co2 in the local atmosphere, and the energy bills. It would have a real effect, but also encourage people to grow veggies to sell to the local urban market. Any thoughts? (Friday Apr 19 | post #32036)
You know, I think this political cartoon just about sums up how I feel about the position of opposing first trimester abortion (and embryonic stem cell research) http://i37.photobu cket.com/albums/e5 4/pwhp67/Editorial s/Religion/cartoon 20060720.gif (Apr 14, 2013 | post #1506)
In the first trimester, I do not believe that abortion is murder. (Apr 14, 2013 | post #1504)
