I suppose that America is responsible for the entire solar system warming up?
Surely its obvious to you that all the metallic objects that NASA left on the surface of the moon are reflecting light through the convex lenses on various pieces of equipment which in turn is intensifying the sunlight that is hitting the polar ice caps on mars and melting them..!!?
Its so obvious..
You lot should be sorry!

Look at this picture.
Obama's revealing body language
I am stunned that the official White House Blog published this picture and that it is in the public domain. The body language is most revealing.
Sergeant Crowley, the sole class act in this trio, helps the handicapped Professor Gates down the stairs, while Barack Obama, heedless of the infirmities of his friend and fellow victim of self-defined racial profiling, strides ahead on his own. So who is compassionate? And who is so self-involved and arrogant that he is oblivious?
In my own dealings with the wealthy and powerful, I have always found that the way to quickly capture the moral essence of a person is to watch how they treat those who are less powerful. Do they understand that the others are also human beings with feelings? Especially when they think nobody is looking.

Honestly, the neocon smear machine will have to do better next time. (Especially the OP)
I have a graphics card that i just got from dell and it tracks the coordinates of the us military and unidentified flying objects throughout outer space. its the weirdest thing i have ever seen.
I have a BSD (BS Detector) Card that detects BS by analyzing the post in question.
The card confirmed that your post is full of BS and that anyone that raved in 2005 and still feels proud of it tells lies on a regular basis...
A new study by researchers at the Center for Mass Destruction Defense (CMADD) at the University of Georgia details the catastrophic impact a nuclear attack would have on American cities.

He fails to say anything about the scientific evidence and observations which scientists use to support their young earth view. Creation Scientists have alternate explanations for every single piece of evidence used evolutionists to formulate their old earth theory. He cites one explanation, which is, God created the earth and life with the appearance of age. Obviously, humans need to be nurtured and looked after, much longer than the animals do, therefore, it is reasonable to assume that the first humans were created mature and of age, with the ability to take care of themselves. Likewise, the planet was created with the appearance of age. It's no great leap of faith to accept that theory....or is it?

When this is presented I call bullshyte. Nail the critics/skeptics before you even get out of starting gate.
tactic. Basic psychology. In sales it's called "The Set Up"...It's getting really amusing how often it's used and abused.
*yawn*...blah blah blah more "truths" and personal feelings and opinion with no backing.
Sorry, but I'm just tossing that out there. I urge anyone to look into the tactic...get to know it and learn to recognize it and then...pass by posts that start out like this one.
Just a public service announcement.
And people wonder why these things get looked at wierdly. Seriously, if you are crazed enough to pay up to $10,000 to put your life in the hands of someone who will "Harness the spirit of a Dolphin" to heal you, aren't you getting what you deserve if you die in the process?
It's harsh, but Natural Selection and Darwinism don't really care about feelings. If you are this dumb, you are going to die.
what are you the dolphin princess?
you have no idea wether or not dolphins have magical healing powers, and neither do I.
Not to put to fine a point on it, but it seems you started this thread to bash anything that doesnt fit in with your existing paradigm of reality, and to use the death of two people as ammunition for your arguments which are essentially baseless, because like I said,
your not the dolphin princess.
Gawd! What's your deal, man? How come everyone is trying to get rid of me just because I complain? Just what exactly is your problem with complaint? You know what I hate? I hate that no one ever listens to my very real complaints and I especially hate that no one ever listens to my complaining that no one ever listens to my very real complaints. I mean, its bad enough that no one ever listens to my complaints, now I have to listen to how you and people like you want to get rid of me just because I complain! What the heck for? It's not like you listen to me anyway.
You know what else I hate? I hate that stupid eye crud you get when you first wake up in the morning and I especially hate it when you have like a cold or the flu, then that eye crud is damn near unbearable! Another thing I hate is flatulence, I mean, what that heck is that about? It can be pretty damn embarrassing when you have to cut one when your in the middle of a crowd or in your bosses offices getting called on the carpet for some stupid little transgression like wasting paper clips to make wire stick figures, or shooting rubber bands at your work mates. That's another thing I hate, bosses who think just because they're your supervisors they are your superiors. Yeah right!
You know what else I hate? I hate pigeons! What a stupid bird that is! Always flapping around where they're not wanted and strutting their heads about like they're some kind of special bird or something. Ha! There are far better birds then pigeons on this planet, like eagles and hawks and...well, even sparrows are better than pigeons. I hate cats too! Stupid aloof animals are what they are. Well, not necessarily stupid but they're certainly aloof and that can be pretty annoying when you're constantly opening up smelly cans of processed glop and bowls of milk for them.
You know what else I hate? I hate broccoli! What kind of stupid vegetable is that, and why do so many "gourmet" restaurants insist on serving it with that gawd awful tarty hollendaise sauce! I even hate the stupid spelling of hollendaise sauce that my stupid spell check doesn't even know is a word. And that's another thing I hate! I hate how stupid my stupid spell check can be. Why the heck should I constantly be adding a new word to my spell check just because it doesn't know that it is a word because when my spell check has that stupid red dotted line that appears when I know I spelled the word correctly, then I have to dig out my dictionary or Google the word just to make sure I am right and my stupid spell check is wrong! Don't you hate that? I know I do.
You know another thing I hate? Wait...this isn't the complainers thread? Oh yeah, right. It's the anti-complainers thread. Ooops! Oh yeah, that's another thing I hate is when somebody goes way off topic on a thread just yammering away about something totally non related to the issue brought up by the original poster and just going on and on and on in all different sorts of direction as if they're some sort of genius or something...but, I digress. I guess the real question I have here is what is wrong with a little complaining now and then? I mean what is so damn perfect about tolerance or acceptance? I mean, I don't mind it so much when people tolerate or accept me, but its not like I am lavished with tolerance and acceptance, you know? Nobody ever listens to me, and they certainly don't listen to me when I complain, so what damn difference does it make if I or others complain? Sheesh!
Me - "There's a nice place where you can share this stuff, it's called the gray area
Alien - "But i wanna share it here
Me - "I know it, but trust me: this belongs to the gray area
Alien - "Your some closed minded skeptic probably paid by cia
Me- "Ok, yes i am, can we now move this to the gray area please?
I cant stand slang, grammar or spelling mistakes. How does an adult still have spelling errors with basic grammar skills that were learned in elementary school?! I just don't get it. I learned the uses for they're, there and their when I was like 8! I have always been accused of being the grammar/spelling Nazi Little mistakes dont bother me it's the obvious ones that IMO adults or even HS students should get by now. To and too are another set that drive me nuts with the misuse. For me if a thread has bad spelling and grammar I wont read it or even take the OP seriously. I know that's bad but that's how I feel. If you can't proof read to make sure it's right then why should I have to suffer through trying to translate what is being said?
I echo your sentiments ... I mean ...
