    It seems you are not fair dinkum.

    And it seems to be chronic with you.

    And you have no insight into your condition.

    And you seem to think no one else has either.

    All of these are signs of pathology.

    But what is interesting is that you don't seem to understand that your behaviour invalidates what you say.

    You are so blatant that I wonder -

    Has no one pointed this out to you before?

    Right right, she's so sick with some sort of chronic pathology that she's totally deluded and has no idea what she's talking about, but good thing you're here to set her straight like the good, concerned citizen you are.

    You sound like zarc.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Thanks, Freud. I will refrain from wondering if you reached this insight into my psyche after your last masturbation about your mother...you know, to keep my behaviour in check.

    This is why the gun laws were introduced - to stop gun massacres - no one would expect them to stop gun crime.

    But I wonder why our laws are any of your business.

    In your country you have a truly intractable problem.

    But instead of trying to do something about it, you continue make false and ignorant accusations against us.

    I'm getting a little sick of it.
    I'm not accusing you of anything except being misinformed.

    I ask you again, if banning firearms results in such a high level of TOTAL gun violence, why is stopping "gun massacres" a more important goal? For that matter, how many people have to be killed in what time frame in order to qualify as a "massacre"? Is it worse for a psychopath to kill 50 people in the same place at the same time, or 100 people in different places at different times?

    You are effectively saying that spreading out the gun murders across a greater number of total incidents is worth an increase in the total number of gun-related murders. How on Earth do you rationalize this position?

    Such practices HAVE been constant, albeit with periods of relative laxity followed by various purification/reformation movements. Orthodox Islam's "prolific humanitarian history" basically consist of Islamic civilization being less atrocious than either medieval Western Europe, the Byzantine Empire, or orthodox Hindu civilization. That's about as impressive as saying the aforementioned civilizations were more humanitarian than the Spartans.

    So please tell me, why are freedom of religion, free speech, and equal rights under the law "radical individualist" concepts that more communitarian cultures have good reason to reject (using Amartya Sen's criteria of what practically constitutes a universal value)?

    And this is what you do. And what you do most of the time.

    You rationalise.

    Rationalisation is not logic.

    Rationalisation is the pretense at logic to conceal your emotions - and to conceal your emotional intentions.

    Rationalisation is a form of pathology.

    Your pseudonym gave you away when you first arrived and you have remained true to your pseudonym ever since.

    But what is most interesting is how you are drawn to and defend other game players - birds of a feather flock together.

    But it is our own fault - by providing anonymity we provide the perfect environment for game players.

    And we never seem to realise that we are simply being played.

    Genuine and good humoured people seem to think everyone else is like them.

    So the genuine and good humoured easily fall victim to the predatory game players.

    Have you ever encountered somebody online so sophomoric that you just simply cannot believe that the person is real? I just have.

    The (un) setting up refugee camps instead of communities in Palistine aside. I think all this started because a shaw was installed in Iran.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Hopefully I won't get drag too far into this topic, I believe (not that it makes it any better) the law pertains only to married women and their husbands, (women can't refuse their husbands sex).

    Now putting that aside, I believe they are allowed to run their country their own way. I don't believe we should be doing anything about it. Its not our job to dictate social laws in other countries, that effect only, and I do mean only themselves. Also if the said country causes harm to another, and loses in the retaliation of the other country, the subjugation of social norms would be more acceptable in my book, Japan and the US would be an example of what Iím talking about.

    Of course such practices should never be transported over to western countries due to sensitivity, multiculturalism, or such like that.

    People get the government that they deserve.
