Hey! How long do have to wear that albatross around your neck?! Good show, BTW! Nice name pick.

RE: Words I want to remember
From an automotive site I frequent, where there is a huge contingent of christ punchers:

Evolution does not necessarily reward intelligence.
With no natural predators to thin the herd...
it began to simply reward those who reproduced the most...
and left the intelligent to become an endangered species

I love this! Yes

I've been having rather infuriating (well, annoying at least) discussions on suffering and why on earth should we need suffering to learn, couldn't that gozo (god + bozo) have created a universe where we learn through, I don't know, researching and, reading, and exploring stuff Dodgy

Also, there is this joker (as in would-be comedian-cum-pastor or some such creep) here and my landlady really likes him, so I opened one of his books... the motto or whatever was "When suffering knocks on the door, it's better to open." Being the contrarian that I am, I did the exact opposite, closed the book and didn't throw it across the room only because a) it's not mine and b) my room is tiny Rolleyes

But learning through suffering for-freaking-sooth!

They don't want see us as humans but rather to justify their own sense of superiority and prejudice against us. If they took the time to engage us as people and share their thoughts on for example movies they love or whatever, we become different to them and I think with many that terrifies them. That's really about their fear and not about us.
