Re: God botherers

Anti-social behaviour means relatively little until you talk to old people. They hate it.

Re: God botherers

I don't think you lot (especially the first poster) know many religious people, or at least not the ones I know.

And I don't think logic and rationale are purely atheistic concepts, either.

Re: Holy shit this is the best optical illusion I've ever seen

Well, the green/magenta haze is still there. That's 1.5 days now. :)

Same. It's less obvious, but still there.

Don't know much about BG, but I've just watched the whole series of Firefly (on some of your recommendations, I might add) in about a day and am just bursting to say how utterly great it is.

Re: [Technology] Microsoft says "**** You" to Sony.

They all mean the same thing. So, really, there was no point in elaborating, as was my point. Pig's explanation was perfectly adequate and, idd, the most apt.

Perhaps you took a swig.

Strangely, I found Catch-22 more confusing and less rewarding than any Shakespeare I have read.
