  1. Do my Penguin for me

    Which exam board did you do A-level zoology with...? What uni course are you on?
  2. What actually is racism then?

    Creationism is NOT a scientific theory because it does not have TESTABLE CONSEQUENCES. A 'theory' isn't just 'something that I think might be true'. I, quite rightly, have the fundamental right to call your beliefs stupid, illogical, backwards, out of date or immoral. Everyone has the right to hate concepts. To hate a group of people because of an aspect of their shared belief is stupid. Hate Christianity but not Christians. The Jewish question is complicated. There is a Jewish race, religion and country and all 3 kind of intermingle. There aren't totally separate boundaries. An amusing consequence is that if you wanted to CONVERT to Judaism, you'd have to prove you weren't already a Jew by ancestry. Shmickle.
  3. Is Mah Wii Screwing Up?

    I had exactly the same problem. Send it to the nintendo service centre, but put Wii dept on the address. Took me an hour of phone calls to get them to tell me this. Oh - and send it recorded delivery, the address is on nintendo's website.
  4. JET programme anyone?

    I'm hoping to apply next year.
  5. UK has the worst children

    Every school I've been in has a zero-tolerance policy on bullying and vandalism. It is mandatory in England and Wales (and probably Scotland- I just haven't seen their National Curriculum) that pupils receive an education that encompasses personal, social and health education. Citizenship education is also a requirement, and in England this is taught as a discrete subject in its own right. Schools are not exam factories. This is a cultural/social issue far more than a educational issue. The problem I have seen is parents shirking their responsibilities, and kids suffering for it.
  6. Racing Soundtracks

    John Keegan's Songs Of The South. Oh- racing songs...
  7. Survey Says - Gamers have Sex more often!

    I was going to make a 'right hand' joke. But I didn't. Or did I?
  8. UK has the worst children

    Yeah, kids are shit.
  9. I just got dumped!

    Understand? yes. Humour? no.
  10. Slippy or Tingle?

    Tingle is a ****. Slippy is an idiot. Tingle is worse.
  11. Are you happy with your Wii?

    I like my wii, but it's not quite as good as I expected. The motion sensing controller doesn't seem to work as well as it should. Don't get me wrong, I love the idea and adore wii tennis, it just doesn't feel like the guy on the telly is doing exactly what I am. Next gen, or even next batch of games, might get it right. I'm also pissed off because the GPU on my wii has gone weird and I need to send it back, delaying my Wario Ware purchase.
  12. Capcom says Wii is for kids!

    Fuck's sake.
  13. Charlie Brooker? A Wii Fan?

    I know bollocks had something to do with it...
  14. Fastest way to lose weight.

    Have a big poo. You can lose over 3 pounds in under 5 minutes.
  15. Help a non-boozer!!!

    I find a bottle of turps to be a particularly effective social lubricant. Try Carlsberg super. Pure tramp fuel.
  16. Leggings and Footless Tights

    Generally, if they look cheap, they're more likely to pull it off. But you'll have to ask nicely, or buy 'em a cider.
  17. Official Neighbours Topic

    I'm going to fuck with my kids heads like that.
  18. When we are dead.

    True wisdom is knowing that you know nothing.
  19. THE JOKE THREAD .

    What's red and invisible? No tomatoes What's the difference between a duck? It's got one leg both the same What's purple and commutes? An Abelian grape

  21. When we are dead.

    I think I first read about that 'theory' in a discworld book. It says that all the gods took it in turns to fry the bloke who came up with the theory with thunderbolts for being a smart-arse. It does kind of make sense. Ish. In (albeit non-monotonic) logic, we could write: If there is a God, he'll be pissed off if I don't worship him. There could be a god. I should worship God. Of course, both of the propositions require a degree of belief, and God ain't a logician, he's geometer. (I promise that's the end of the God-maths- apart from this: "If god did play dice, he'd win"- Ian Stewart) [/math's geek]
  22. When we are dead.

    true. Also, a probabilistic assessment of religion would lead you to the conclusion that you should, logically, believe in God. Basically, it's worth betting a tenner to win another tenner on the flip of a coin, right? So it's definitely worth betting a tenner to win another twenty, or thirty on the flip of a coin. It's about risk vs reward. Well, nobody is certain that God does not exist. Therefore there is some probability (higher than 0) that God exists. You are betting 80years (roughly) of servitude against finite odds, and the reward is infinite bliss for an infinite period. This is a much more sensible bet than betting your last penny on a coin toss to win 8 billion pounds. But statistics/probability is guff anyway.
  23. Who's your favourite Mushroom Kingdom resident?

    Any and all of the koopa troopers.
  24. When we are dead.

    I keep wanting to add something to this thread, but I'm always too late and someone else has already said it! I think it's good that people are asking the questions, the questions are more important than the answer. Anyone who tells you they can explain everything is a liar. I don't see a conflict between evolution and Christianity. I believe in some of the ethics of Christianity, but not necessarily the religious side. Books are written by men. I'm agnostic, but I'm probably Theo-Curious. If there was an answer that people just 'knew' then this thread wouldn't exist. I was about to say that I believe in evolution, but 'Belief' isn't needed, really. Evolution is as real as fire. ^That there is an unconnected set of sentences which isn't illogical. Whoever was critcising someone else for spelling 'criticize' wrong should look it up in an English Dictionary (British Edition).
