Supposedly, GM foods are incredibly unhealthy, though, and cause medical issues. So long as people know that, at least a few people will be against it. I can't say that many would, though- it seems to me that a lot of people are oblivious about what they eat.
That, or they're too poor to afford anything else, which may very well be the case.

GM means Genetically Modified. Im on the fence about it. I do think it should require labelling so people know what they are getting when they buy their food, they can then make the decision whether to buy it or not.Currently, GM foods are not labelled as such.

I think it's the company itself that's the problem, not GM foods. Monsanto is a notoriously shady company and has done/does maaaannyyy, maaaaanny terrible actions. GM foods wouldn't be under such scrutiny if the people who produce them weren't such dickheads.
Well, money can't be made if people are well fed and satisfied with their lives!

…thus we have things like monsanto

Also I've heard comparisons from monsanto to the Umbrella Corp. from the Resident Evil whatmafiggers?

edit:snip

I'm just so angry at dumb people/ignorant people that I don't even have words for it.

I don't even know what that is haha.
I tried to research GM dangers earlier today to post here but google was not being helpful >_>

...
I just noticed that Wikipedia is claiming different things about pyromania. Some articles say a pyromaniac is a person who likes fire, but it isn't the same as pyrophilia. But the actual article on pyromania says that it's an impulse control disorder involving lighting things on fire.

Umbrella Corp is the antagonist's home base in the first few Resident Evil games.

And the two definitions you gave sound similar enough, no?

Ah, that would explain why I didn't know about it haha.

If I understand correctly, they're pretty darn different. x: Go check the wikipedia page for pyrophilia. That is not what I thought it was. I'm just going to look up pyromania and pyrophilia on an online dictionary and see if that's accurate.

Edit:
Okay, apparently pyrophilia is not a word. Pyromania is the same as Wikipedia says, though. Sort of.

They sound alike, but really aren't.

Liking fire would be staring at a fire and thinking "Look at all the colors..." I did this a lot when I was younger. Always had scrap metal in the fire so it was very beautiful. Looking closely, you'd be able to see many diffrient colors - Red, blue, green, purple, and some others.

Being a pyromaniac would be looking at something and thinking "Thats nice... But it would look even better if it was... BURNING!"

Also, I love this time of year. Fireworks stands are soon to go up.

Is it time for fireworks again already? I've always meant to find some place that does fireworks at the beach so I could see the reflections in the water.

A professor once told me pyromaniacs are chemists who really love their studies.

I'm a bit overly comfortable around flames haha. That has cost me partial feeling in two fingertips.

Yeah... they most likely love their studies a little too much - there's a pretty thin line between pyromaniacs & arsonists, you know...

The natives in our area petitioned our city to ban fireworks. They said that they're not environmentally friendly, so we don't have them anymore on Victoria Day (since about five years).

Yet, they can still use fireworks for their native festivities lol ridiculous

Yeah, I know, I have an old friend (haven't talked to him in years, btw) who's in prison for arson. I don't know the details, he was in another state when he did it.

I agree that pyromania does need to be controlled. Else you might end up like this guy:



Of course, I don't know if there are too many people around in our world who are hedge wizards who can channel a human body to become a conduit for the Elemental Plane of Fire, but with 7 billion people around I suppose anything's possible.

Fire scares me a lot, one of my worst fears is my house burning down.

I was just thinking last night about what I would do if there were a fire. If my door were blocked I'd have to crawl through a narrow window and fall about 6 feet.

I hope it never comes to that. :/

Ignus! Planescape: Torment is basically the greatest game of all time, hehe.

I used to like playing with fire, until my grandma beat me till I vomited when I set the toilet cushion on fire.

As much as I love fire, (and even considered myself a pyromaniac myself till I realized it was more a disorder) I wouldn't want to be in a situation where my house was on fire. My room is probably the most flammable place in our house cause of all the paper and other stuff cluttering the floor and it's usually warmer up there than downstairs. If the door was hot, I'd probably try jumping out the window....from 2 stories. >.>

Errrrr, I don't think anyone would want their house set on fire. If you do, kindly see a doctor. It's for your own good!

I love to play with fire, it's kinda amusing, if I'm honest. Nothing like my friend though. He set his non-flammable sweater on fire once, just for kicks and giggles. Of course, it didn't catch, but for a second his entire sleeve was aflame.

I set a can of gasoline on fire once, if that counts.

And it was intentional/unintentional. I wanted to pour gasoline on a burning piece of paper, but i didn't remember that the gasoline stream was still attached to the can of gasoline.

Sooo yeah nothing big.

But I do love playing with fire. Easter at church is fun for this reason.

Also, @ the burning house thing. I would definitely not want my house burned down, but if it was, I would enjoy it.

Okay, so I asked this on Facebook and inadverantly started a war of words between my friends from school, so here's hoping the same doesn't happen here.

What do you guys think a guy should wear to prom: a suit or a tux?

I can't even tell the difference between a suit and a tuxedo. Anyways, I wouldn't wear any of these for a prom.
Only a black, long sleeved shirt, black (or dark blue) jeans and a pair of sneakers. And would be carrying a white Jackson Kelly all night.

Just to break the monotony.
