» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:23 -- the percentage of people who said yes was certainly higher than of the people who didn't fill the survey
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:22 -- a week later, another group came and asked if they would like to have a small billboard placed in their yard with a message related to road safety
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:20 -- or something like that
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:20 -- they did a study once, where they asked about road safety and stuff, and a few questions were like if they considered road safety to be a civic duty and another was if they considered themself dutiful
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:17 -- in that note, I will never ever fill out a survey again
» Worom - 15-09-09 13:15 -- from what I call there isn't a specific technique, they are just preached to go out and spread the gospel

» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:13 -- I saw it in a book once that they train door to door salesmen to use these kind of things

» Worom - 15-09-09 13:11 -- something like that probably goes on in thier minds
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:10 -- so •
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:09 -- so it looks like they win the debate do they have a higher chance to convert people?
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:09 -- personally I think they talk English because they expect our English to suck, therefore having less strong arguments because you can't properly convey your thoughts
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:06 -- seriously, who goes walking around at 2pm to convert people? the sun! ! !
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:06 -- saved by the bus
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:05 -- she stared at me like I was crazy, and before she could talk , a bus stopped
» Worom - 15-09-09 13:03 -- or did she go into religious sulk mode and stare at you?
» Worom - 15-09-09 13:03 -- did she continue or leave in a huff?
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:03 -- among •
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:02 -- bullshit *
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:02 -- it was hot and I was waiting for the bus so I might've said something asking the lines of"i already get a lot of crap from family to follow their religion, I don't need your budget now"
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 13:00 -- then she immediately asks if I accept Jesus Christ as my personal saviour
» Worom - 15-09-09 13:00 -- and she goes into some religious tirade?
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 12:59 -- I thought she meant to ask directions or something, so I answers yes
» Worom - 15-09-09 12:58 -- Americans are like a disease sometimes Tongue
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 12:58 -- I was waiting for the bus just now, and this woman asks me if I speak English
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 12:57 -- now we get 'muricans here to do the same?
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 12:56 -- we have enough religious people spreading their crap
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 12:55 -- ok, now ....umm confused
» Worom - 15-09-09 11:41 -- a large chunk of them are in the south and they have the highest rates of teen pregnancy which comes as no surprise at all
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 11:36 -- that is seriously wrong
» Worom - 15-09-09 11:32 -- last count was around 25 states are abstinence only education, the rest have varying degrees of sex ed
» Worom - 15-09-09 11:30 -- not even slat a in slot b
» Worom - 15-09-09 11:30 -- a large portion of the sex ed in the states is abstienence only
» Lightvader - 15-09-09 11:22 -- hmm, I. thought it would be at least sick slot a in slot v, and you can get pregnant
» ClydeLee - 15-09-09 11:11 -- Some states/counties standards for SexEd are literally just saying don't do it till you're married so yes it gets that bad sometimes
