Re: Sex, Speeding, Smoking, Trip Tucker, Drinking, Canon ...

Sex - What's that ?
Speeding - Moronic.
Smoking - Smelly.
Trip Tucker - Should have been killed by aliens we'd seen before, maybe Romulans.

Men's Rights - Equally vital.
Jennifer Lien - Left so we could have a much more interesting character played by a much better actress.
PS3 VS XBOX - I have both.
Peeing in the shower - Eeeeewwww.
Gays in Trek - Too much of an issue made about it, it's as if Star Trek is the only show on TV.
Gay Rights - Also vital.
Gay Marriage - If people want to call themselves married, that's up to them.
Urinal etiquette - Never use the middle one.
Macs and PCs - Macs win, except for games.
Illegal Downloading - Until Hollywood understands that the Internet doesn't care about national borders, it will continue.
Cat declawing - Wrong.
UGO ads - Get Firefox.
Spanking Children - Don't do it.
Spanking Adults - Safewords, people.
Credit Cards/Debts - Be smart and safe.
The South - Is where London is.
Causes of the Civil War - It was Nitro who blew up Stamford, not the New Warriors.
Fat People/Skinny People - Eat sensibly.
Guns - Are no way to solve a problem.

Asian Americans in film/TV - Don't stereotype them, just like anyone else.
Christianity - Entrenched.
Atheism - The ability to understand that we don't know everything.
Tasers - Unsafe, dangerous, over-used.

Star Wars Prequels - Bad acting, bad directing, occasional silliness vs Good story, great special effects.
Drinking Pee in the Shower - Not in to watersports.

JJ Abrams - Someone who cares about what he's doing.
The Side Boob - Is one body part that gets focused on a lot more than other more problematic ones.

Stay at Home vs Working Mom - If it makes sense for the mother to stay at home, then that's the way it will be.

Only if it's a botched operation and leads to post-op infection.

Let's call it willful bodily mutilation. That way it can be handled in the same breath as tats and piercings and brandings and whatnot

Re: Sex, Speeding, Smoking, Trip Tucker, Drinking, Canon ...

Sex - Why not?
Speeding - To be fair, speed limits are usually 20mph slower than max safe speed... just don't ride my ass when I go the limit.
Smoking - It's your call. Just don't do it around me or where it can effect me.
Trip Tucker - NOT. DEAD.
Drinking - Not a drinker, but I've got nothing against it. Just don't drink'n'drive
Canon - If you can do a good job within canon, great. If you have to dump canon to make a good story, also great
Blu-Ray - Someday, I may start upgrading... just don't make my DVD collection go away!
Barack Obama - nothing against him, I hope he does well, but this has all the disaster potential of electing a Jew to run Germany: sure, most will be fine with it, but there's still enough crazy bastards who want to take a shot of him.
Trek XI - Uber-excited
Women's Rights - They deserve 'em.
Men's Rights - Take them away! Lock men away in a hole forever! Don't let them... oh, wait a minute...
Jennifer Lien - Meh, she was ok

Cat declawing - Nothing against it
UGO ads - More annoying than family
Spanking Children - Do it
Spanking Adults - If that's where your excitement comes from
Credit Cards/Debts - Just be careful
The South - Whatever
Causes of the Civil War - The North threw a hissy fit over stuff the south was doing and illegalised it, the south threw a hissy fit over the north's hissy fit and illegalization so they left the USA, and then the north threw a hissy for over the south's hissy, and started blowing them to hell until they came home.
Fat People/Skinny People - Your body is your problem. Their body is their problem. Leave them be
Guns - Don't illegalise, but there needs to be some limitations
Kid does something stupid - That's a shocker
Asian Americans in film/TV - Why not?
Christianity - You do your thing and I'll do mine.
Atheism - As oxymoronic as it sounds, we operate on faith too. We just operate on the faith that there is nothing to believe in.

Police procedures - with oversight
Star Wars Prequels - Good story, cool action, the dialouge made me want to cry.
Drinking Pee in the Shower - .....No
nuBSG - Love it, love it, love it!!
Marriage - Why not
Abortion - choice but with limits
Trek Books - their fine
Before Dishonor - Didn't read
eBook vs Books - Books... ebooks hurts my eyes
MadBaggins - Somedays he makes you wish you could punch peoples through TCP/IP and other days he is highly entertaining. Hit and miss these days
Old BSG discussion in BSG forum - That always ends well
JJ Abrams - I like lost and have hope for Trek XI
The Side Boob - Why not?

Stay at Home vs Working Mom - Families do what they gotta do
Sex Threads - Can be interesting, can be scary
Cell Phones - Useful
