    People not interested in science?

    I understand the point you are making, but I don't see how more knowledge equals the extinction of the arts/culture. I'm sure some things would change, of course, but I think there are way too many unknowns.

    Music genres

    I've met more than a couple techno fans that are the same way, I'd bet one could find many examples for other broad genres. As a punk fan, I love some Dead Kennedys and Minor Threat but then someone goes and calls Blink182 punk and I want to protest.

    Girl with no classes together

    If this advice was from me to younger me, I'd say do it anyway. Also, don't fret over what may happen, it will only make a simple thing more complicated.

    Roommate Issues

    Sounds hypocritical to me. You can do whatever you want whenever you want, and he should be able to as well, unless you don't like it? It is not illegal for your roommate to have guests over, even if you don't care for them being there and ask them to leave. It also seems that you...

    Social life - is it important

    In my opinion, being alone for a spell can be a great way to get things done, but for the overwhelming majority social interaction will turn in from a want to a need at some point. Into The Wild might be a good movie for you to check out, it kind of deals with the whole being alone for a long...

    Things that make you way too angry (venting thread)

    People who take the topic and link it to something mostly unrelated and get up on a soapbox. Topic: Microwave gourmet dining for one Person 1: I made this recipe the other night. Person 2: I made it too, even my kid liked it. Trolltastic: At least you have kids, Jimmy Carter ate my kids...

    Should i break up with my new GF ?

    Is she willing to learn the difference? Does she know how to use proper capitalization? If I would have automatically broken up with somebody because they didn't know something I did, I would have missed out on many amazing times. Different things are important to different people, that...

    Listening to music while doing math

    I find that it helps me concentrate for trivial tasks but if I'm doing something that requires a lot of effort or is new to me, I'll turn the music off. I could see students with headphones on being an overall hindrance in a classroom setting and I agree with the teacher regardless if I would...

    What SciFi universe would you live in?

    I'll have to go with next gen too... but I wouldn't argue with hanging out with Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect making and eating perfectly normal beast sandwiches and arguing with old Thrashbarg, but I could recreate that on the holodeck just the same.

    Coffee. Yes coffee. Do you really feel a difference ?

    I chose yes. If I take a break from caffeine for a spell and then have some I feel it. If I drink 2 Java Monsters, I for sure feel that. When I have my 2 Mountain Dews after I get up for work in the evening, I don't notice a difference, or I am so used to it, the effect isn't profound enough...

    How would you end the world?

    My first choice would be trying to goad people to be better to one another, themselves and their surroundings. But if all else fails, one of these: Change all the h2o to h2o2 Start writing things in the clouds like "surrender Dorothy" and behave. Dragons, lots of dragons. Just blow it up...

    Game of Thrones is overrated

    here, It's really not over rated, it is the only show I've watched as it came out since the late 90's. I am not bothered by nudity or violence even if it is gratuitous. Quite a few people wants to see attractive people doing "morally questionable" things together and they want to see some...
