    I'm feeling the need right now to link you something. Here we go... page 35 of my 47 page ongoing conversation with Andy, in which we wrote veritable NOVELS to each other on the subject of kids and whether they are Teh Evulz or not. (Spoiler: they're not. ) So if anyone shouldn't feel obligated to reply to elongated ramblings, it'd be you, haha.

    Ohhh, tell me about it. I defy anyone - *anyone* - to watch more than three minutes of live British parliamentary debate and not come away hating the souls of every single person in that room. Ugh. Just - just LISTEN to each other, okay? And don't always disagree for the sake of it! And be mature, and don't score points, and for the love of Pete, shut UP when someone else is speaking. FFS. This is elementary secondary school debate club stuff. How and why it is not implemented in the actual RUNNING of my COUNTRY... it boggles the mind.

    Also, don't worry about offending me! Ever, about anything, lol. If you're going to have opinions, you better get used to other people's, fairly sharpish... and I've got a lot of opinions, haha. This, in particular, I found really interesting:
    Quote:
    Gah. I don’t want to make myself sound dumb. I just become so frustrated when it comes to religion. >.< It just doesn’t make sense to me most of the time.
    You're not alone. I don't think there's anyone who can honestly say they understand every tenement of their chosen doctrine, because there are just so many ambiguities, inconsistencies and downright contradictions floating around. What matters (in my worthless opinion) is that you formulate a belief system that allows you personal freedom while not infringing on the right of others to have the same - which you appear to have done, so kudos.

    Quote:
    Frankly, I don’t understand religion enough to be able to get offended by it, if that makes sense. The way I look at is that the Bible has been passed down and edited so many times that, like you mentioned, it makes religion itself seem so inaccurate and incoherent. No one will ever know what Jesus’s mission truly was, or even if he had one at all.
    Excuse my nosiness, but I'm fascinated! I think I'm correct in thinking that you identify as Christian, yeah? But at the same time, you say that Christian belief is 'inaccurate and incoherent'. So - if you don't mind my asking, and please ignore me if you do! - how do you determine which bits to follow, which bits to ignore, and which bits you need to make up for yourself? Iz genuinely intriguing to me. Is it just gut feeling/trust in God?

    Quote:
    Although the ad wasn’t necessarily funded by Romney’s campaign, you could obviously tell how most Republicans feel about the topic of homosexuality from just watching the actual ad.
    Well, exactly. They knew their demographic, though that ad was the very *essence* of preaching to the choir. What would be interesting is to see whether Romney and his team distanced themselves from that ad and criticised it and made it absolutely clear that it was *not* a reflection of their views - then I'd despise the ad, not the candidate. Still. I highly doubt he did - though, hey, maybe I'm wrong. I know next to nothing (better make that nothing, on second thoughts) about political advertising - cos it's banned for some reason in the UK. Well, billboards aren't. Or leaflets. But anything televisual is locked away in a great big black safe, burned in an industrial furnace and then dropped into a nuclear reactor. No idea why.

    Quote:
    They’re more for “individual freedom” and are less for actual government.
    Which I'm actually totally with - up to a point. That's liberalism, though, which is the funny thing - 'everyone has a right to life, liberty and property', and the government shouldn't interfere when it doesn't need it. Yep. We all agree about that. Which makes the constant mud-throwing - the conversion of the term 'liberal' into an insult, ridiculously - all the more surreal.

    Quote:
    Republicans just really want people to fend for themselves.
    Or as I like to call it, the 'I'm All Right, Jack' political philosophy. I don't get the selfish perspective, to be honest - liberalism > conservatism because opening the gates for massive personal accumulation of wealth is rather less important than making sure that no one then gets trampled in the headlong stampede for it. S'not rocket science.

    Quote:
    It’s not even that I don’t like the Party. I just don’t like their standards and position on things.
    Haha, you're allowed to dislike them! And if you don't like their standards and political positions, it's pretty safe to say that you don't like them as a group. I mean, not *personally*. I'm sure there are lovely Republicans, just as there are hideous liberals. But you're definitely allowed to have an opinion about their beliefs. I, for example, f**king DETEST the Tories. (It's kind of invigorating just to state that. You should try it some time. )

    I guess I see your point. Basically I want to hit 21 and then stop aging. ;]

    But yeah, when I went to bed after writing that VM...this morning, I was awake in my bed for a little over an hour ahahaha.

    Also thanks. ;] I notice you change your avatar all the time and I need to keep up! Plus I found this picture and was like "this would look badass as **** if I made it black and white."

    Happy almost birthday! Why so sad about being 19? :[ I'm 19 and it's pretty great. I guess. lolol. Also I totally understand the whole lying awake in bed thing. I do that a lot. As soon as my head hits my pillow I'm like "Let's think about everything ever for around an hour."

    It's hard to hear a nice story about a company that runs a popular game these days. :[ In fact I dislike most developers / publishers of video games.

    I thought people could play on the old Runescape servers anyway (not legally, but they could).
