    I think banning real images can easily be justified based on the direct harm it causes to the children in question, but I reluctantly oppose limitations on, say, fantasy illustrations for the reasons I outlined above. In the first place, I don't think the precedent could be safely limited to the issue in question, and the ban on real images already contains so much leeway (i.e. defining what is pornographic) for witchhunts that I would be reluctant to extend the ban beyond that necessary to protect direct victims, even without the free speech concerns.

    And on that unpleasant topical note, I must leave to get some things done.

    I think the UK does this better than the US to be honest.

    Anyway, we were talking about Nine Inch Nails and I recalled the first time I heard about NIN was on Blossom. Blossom had become enamored with a young substitute teacher who she thought was so cool because "She knew who NIN was and ate only a single serving of yogurt for lunch."

    Oh, come to think of it the Blossom actor did grown up to become quite the role model. She's a neurosurgeon now if I recall correctly.



    edit: oh, PhD in Neuroscience and apparently returned to acting and is in The Big Bang Theory. The latter of which is kind of a strike against her.
    Thanks for that as someone told me the actress on BB was Blossom and my reaction was that's a lot of balls but there you go, photographic evidence and all. I did watch the show and didnt remember her as being the same person, the characters are pretty different.

    Yogurt of certain sorts is good for diabetes because it changes your blood colestorol and that's good because complications are what will get you, ie other sorts of organ damage combined with diabetes will kill you.

    Anyway, I'm gonna grab some yogurt.
    Do you like yogurt?
    I love yogurt but lately, I have been eating skyr.

    I've always known it as the holocaust, I've only heard it called anything else within the last two or three years.

    Although maybe I should ignore what I know for a fact and go with what you typed there as your reasoning was so compellingly persuasive and convincing.

    What exactly can't you look up or read for yourself? I have read several books about Jerusalem and Israel and this Hebrew word is used regularly when speaking about the Holocaust. It's literal translation is catastrophe. If you have an issue with me using the term, take it up with the Jews.

    .
    Here's a 1985 usage of the term.

    What do Irish grade school history textbooks teach about WWII? I'm curious because I know that Ireland was neutral in that war.

    I'm not judging Ireland for doing so, but I'm wondering about how that might impact the folk historiography.

    In the U.S., I was made aware of the internment of Japanese-Americans during WWII, which was unacceptable. I also learned a lot about slavery, Jim Crow and the issues faced by Native Americans.
    I looked out this morning and the sun was gone
    Turned on some music to start my day
    I lost myself in a familiar song
    I closed my eyes and I slipped away

    It's fermented so some of the lactose (milk sugar) gets used up. A better source of dairy for people with mild lactose intolerance I think.

    I'm off topic, I don't care.
