http://web.archive.org/web/20110131114145/http://www.oodegr.com/english/koinwnia/politika/kapitalismos1.htm Great like 40 page essay written by an Orthodox priest. Maybe pretty boring and dry, I've only finished half so far, but it's fascinating to me. Some quotes I find interesting. Max Weber obser...

Whatever the police department decides. After that whatever the prosecutor and judge decide. I could say jury after that, but most of the time jury trials never happen and people simply get plea bargains. lol @ people thinking laws actually matter. It is unfortunately this incorrect view is dissemi...

No, they should keep fighting the war, but do a 180 degree turn with their strategy. Make dangerous drugs which are in demand for recreational use available in pharmacies over the counter (with or without prescription, but with a considerable but not excessive fee attached). Like most drugs, they'd...

I don't agree that drugs would become cheap and easily cultivated if they were legal. Sure, some people with green fingers will grow weed or opium but how will cocaine, ecstasy, amphetamines etc be produced? Will people start building their own labs? And if the consumer had the choice to grow their...

I would hazard a guess that whatever our governments spent on the drug issue, whether it is prison, labs, court costs, police costs etc. I reckon it is only a fraction of the amount of money made in the drug industry. If we legalized that money would shift into our economies. It would also give eco...

Just listen to whatever you want.

Though I love "Cruel Angel's Thesis" myself.

But there are times I wanna be mentally "amped" when working out, and times I'll wanna hear something slow and calming, even doing the same activity.

I'm actually leary of benching for that reason, building your shoulders wrong. I like overhead stuff more. You're a sprinter, why not just do squats, deadlifts/pulls, and overhead or push presses for now? That sorta stuff seems defacto for sprinters anyway, right? EDIT: Speaking of sprinters. Did y...

It's like playing the lotto. When you buy a scratchoff, 3/4 times at least you are going to lose. But sometimes you win. Sometimes you win a lot, an enormous sum, say, a few thousand or millions of dollars. So you play anyway even though the odds are stacked against you, because you want the prize s...

Judo. You can fight full contact. I still remember how to fall from judo class I took as a kid, and instinctively in any sort of fight I get into I still remember to try to grab my opponent so he loses balance. Looking back I'm really happy I took it. It's probably the best balance of what you're lo...

25.5. Mind you I'm probably like 12% bodyfat. How do you measure body fat? :? Lotta ways. Most common is put calipers up to your skin and measure the skinfolds at various spots. Also there's the oldschool hydrostatic method that measures it by putting you in a pool of water. Then there's electronic...

Humanity. Can I have a new species? I'd like to be a cat. Being a cat would be good. Then I can look down on all the stupid humans. Seriously, if you can't get a date, the problem is almost 100% you. Whether the people you go after are wrong, or your approach is wrong. Male or female. Why does it h...

But then what about all the prison guards, judges, probation/parole officers, and prosecutors that'd lose their jobs? I personally hope our incarceration rate goes to 1000 per 1000K, just so we can create more jobs and have our great wonderful government workers have nice jobs with good wages. The n...
