    I realize the DMV employees would probably be terrified to administer these driving tests, but that's too bad. In the end, it would save lives.
    I think sixty is too early. Maybe above seventy-five?

    As for my "controversial" opinion, I think it should be illegal for anyone with an airborne disease not to wear a surgical mask in public. I'm over getting sick because someone sneezed in the same room as me. I don't think the pharmaceutical companies would promote this, though...

    People should be tested for phychopathy and if they do make they wear a label or put them to sleep.

    Far too many criminal and non-criminal offenses have been done by them in the past to let them roam free.

    We need to start teaching horseback riding in school and over time, replace cars with horses/camels/donkeys/etc.. Life would be so much better if we started taking our time with travel instead of rushing everything. Of course this will never happen, because the world is already too focused on going forward that they never consider what the past has to offer... it mayks meh sad. Also I must mention that Icelandic horses are just the most beautiful thing...

    While I sympathise with were you're coming from there's a lot more narcissists and those within that spectrum of personality disorders who commit crimes and imagine they are psychopaths than there are real psychopaths at large in the community, in part its because society has become intrigued with psychopaths and wrote so many flattering tales about them, ie Hannibal, that this happens.

    I don't believe in the death penalty. I know there are criminals that may deserve it, but the reason I can't believe in an issue as heavy as death penalty is because if it's something I'm not willing or able to do myself (be the executioner), I can't expect someone else to do it. I know that this would mean taxes paying for the most heinous criminals to be kept behind bars for life, but that's one reason why I have no interest in a career in politics or law...I wouldn't be able to handle making decisions regarding death penalty, war, etc because I wouldn't be able to even force myself to allow it.

    People should stop trying to blame tragedy on the media. A normal kid does not watch CSI and then go out and shoot someone. Call of Duty does not give kids PTSD, so why are we claiming it causes other negative disorder/action. Crime existed before violent media, but it probably just wasnt investigated as fully or as often as it is today. People were able to get away with it more, but it still existed. If you go and shoot up an area or some other personally harmful and seriously violent crime to someone else, I think that there was something deeply wrong with you-video games or no, just a matter of time. Sure the developing brain is suscepible, but I don't know if it is really that susceptible.

    Individuality is overrated, without a sense of commonality it's like shouting into a vacuum

    we build our own prison with the things we strive for

    Nickelback may be bad, but they are not the worst band ever. I can name tens or even hundreds of bands that are more deserving of the disproportionate ire that Nickelback seems to draw from day to day.

    Burn the heretic!

    Just kidding. Yeah, there are way worse bands than Nickelback. (coughTRAINcoughFIVEFORFIGHTINGcough) I think a lot of people make fun of them because it's the popular thing to do.
