In Topic: A little perspective on the Israeli/Palestinian Conflict

Yesterday, 03:38 PM

the one thing it seems Hamas and Israel can agree on is the value of a Palestinian civilian life. There's no easy solution here. :(


That is probably the saddest, truest statement I have heard about this whole conflict.

In Topic: Why did you become a Panther fan?

26 July 2014 - 11:17 AM

In early 2003 both my parents finally decided to give up the bottle. They started acting like real parents for once. We were a real family for once.

We started watching Panthers games together every week, even though my dad is a die hard Lions fan. I remember him mocking the team for benching their qb halfway through the 1st game of the season.

As the wins piled up that season, we enjoyed some of the best family holidays I can remember. Those Sunday's watching the Ragin' Cajun and a young spark plug wideout will a team to victory, became the highlight of our weeks.

In January, my dad moved out. A month later, we lost the most thrilling football game I have ever seen to a bunch of cheating pansies with Boston accents. The next year my brother left for Iraq.

But for one brief year, it was magical.

As we've gotten older and spread ourselves across the state, we still get together to go to at least one game every season. My dad still pulls for the Lions, but the Carolina Panthers will always have a special in each of us.

We should establish places for them to go.


I nominate Detroit. No one else wants the damn place.

People do realize that these are (by and far) refugees from a war that we started, right?

In Topic: Vladimir Putin

lol I love how people think America is a modern allegory for Rome

There are no comparisons as long as we don't have boats of vandals and goths constantly bombarding the west coast and the eastern seaboard


I love how people who have, seemingly, no knowledge of history assume that Rome was either:

The only empire,

Or the only one that ever fell.

Nevermind the Spanish, British, Russian, Mongol, Qing and multiple Islamic empires.

The circumstances of their falls were not identical, but there are definite similarities. When an empire becomes more complex than its technology can handle end more corrupt than its people can handle, it will fall.
