Speeding is a crime in most places. Does that justify labeling anyone who ever speeds, even if just once, is a criminal?

Someone lock this thread now, please.


Why?

Shouldn't there be some articuable reason for locking the thread? Just because it goes in an unexpected direction from what the OP intended should not be sufficient reason.

Nonsense. Pure nonsense.

Especially if you are colorblind.

What is it with American presidents and being on the spectrum?


What it takes to be elected President doesn't seem at all compatible with being Autistic or anything close to it.

Senility and autism are two entirely different things.

He's using it to make fun of a woman who shamelessly lied about being a Native American to get into a prestigious school. Nothing racist about it. But you have to remember that these claims are coming from the same people who claimed he was racist because he was against illegal immigration. Isn't s...

I used to walk quite awkwardly as a child; but my walking has improved over time. I wish I lived about 3 miles from work. If I did, I would walk to work every day. It would be a shorter commute than my present one. I'd even do it in most inclement weather. My home is 20 miles from the office, but I...

You could consider any natural number as long it is not a cube. The point for using 2^100 was to make it very difficult to solve by just generating the sequence.

I don't smoke and I drink very little. Most years, I may drink a six pack or two. However, there have been times in my life when I did drink to much and could have easily become an alcoholic.

An adult who has sex with a child is absolutely an abuser Yes that was also obvious to me but the judge (and some users here on WP) seem to believe the prosecution case that the girl lied about her age and therefore the "john" thought it was ok to have sex with her. One quick look at her ...

Looks like: 1. Her pimp tells her to "get some money". 2. She prostitutes to some random guy. 3. After sleeping with him, she kills him. 4. She steals his stuff. We don't release murders just because they have sad life stories. Yes she was forced to prostitute by that pimp, also the perso...

I believe that anything you can’t pay for in cash isn’t worth having. The house note investment thing...yeah, that’s what I’d always heard and why I mortgaged my first house. Trouble is loans never adequately take risk into account. The homeowner always loses on this end. Stay in an apartment unles...

To use a current phrase "stay in your lane"; if its meant to happen, it will. Nothing is more awkard than to work around someone has rejected you or is a failed love interest. Show her respect and courtesy and let her learn her new job in peace. That's very good advice. There's also the p...

There are some crimes that I would hesitate to call someone a criminal if they break one, but very rarely. For example, hunting and fishing without a license may be a crime, but I wouldn't call them a criminal unless they do it habitually. If someone commits a really serious crime, such as robbing a...

By definition, a criminal is someone who commits crimes.

Saying that we can't call them criminals is like saying that we can't call someone who does research on stars and galaxies an astronomer. Or that we can't refer to people who don't commit crimes as honest citizens.
