  5. heh...well humans in large groups often act primitive and monkey-like if you ask me... not sure who that is, but you're like the new homophobic white guy B)
  6. And if we're talking about what's socially acceptable, i'd much rather have a gay guy hit on me than have my car rubbed by a straight man's nuts.
  7. Arguments that assume that humanity's measure of morality is based strictly on western and Biblical thoughts has no foundation. You can't go telling an athiest or Buddhist that homosexuality is evil because someone decided to write down that the world originated from some dude and a chick with fig leaves and a fruit. I mean, c'mon, Genesis? Don't be trying to force Christianity and the Bible on me as you talk about gays being an annoying subculture...
  8. I wonder what sort of "core" you think we are straying from...things in the world sure don't seem to be any more clear cut one, 10, to a thousand years ago from today. If you can't be supportive, as long as you are tolerant--I think that's all that people ask of others in this world. Strangely, my morning began with a department meeting to discuss a team member who has decided to come out about being transgender; and all s/he ultimately asked for is for those who cannot support him to be tolerant of him/her. You can hold any opinion you want, really, as long as you don't put on a white robe and dunce cap to enforce your viewpoints...
  9. "I believe in God so homosexuality shouldn't exist. The homo culture annoys me...It's not the homos, it's their culture. But I don't mind my gay friends--I don't mind my friends." Confused much? I can at least appreciate Erik's contributions because he employs objective reasoning to explain his opinions.
  10. I'm going to chirp my tires and drive like an idiot until hydrocarbons aren't available freely or i can afford a tesla.
  11. touche, but at least there aren't pictures of it on the interweb
  12. i dont think i could drive my car knowing that someone plastered their ball sweat all over it
  13. #1 minus the "Can you keep up?" #8 minus the "Respect the Flag." decent poster except the cheeselog headliner.

  15. i hate volvospeed why do i spend money on a car that looks like a brick. i spend the money in savings for my one thirty five. eye. sex. bye. wtf is it about volvos that i like? ' wtf i realliy don't get it.
  16. I'm not sure how this discussion dissolved into name-calling, but i'll post an opinion anyways... I agree with all of what has been put forth by el director. Additionally, i'd like to note that the successful assimilation of immigrants into American language and culture may be an effective method in reducing racially motivated hate crimes as well. Specifically, it seems that a lot of 'hate crimes' are committed by bigotry which is caused by human ignorance. Ignorance, moreover, is often a catalyst for fear--and fear, finally, is often a cause for violent and unpredictable behaviour. Ultimately, with language barriers nullified--or at least vastly decreased--it may be possible to decrease crime and violence. And crime and violence is something that we can ALL do without...American citizen, permanent resident, legal immigrant, illegal immigrant, etc. all alike.
  17. Haha, you're absolutely right. They have brainwashed me fairly effectively over here. I realize it, but I can't really avoid it. I have to belong to something post-fraternity and college days. The teeny violin is going to stay tiny for a while, though. I'd say that I'm safe for another three decades at least. That's cool, you should write a children's book. I think the rest of us are discussing the economics behind step 2...and how the cc is paid for.
  18. You're basically right. Saudi Arabia owns about 22% of the entire world's crude oil supply. Surprisingly to many, however, CANADA actually holds the 2nd most quantity of reserves at 15%; this is primarily due to the sandy nature of the oil, which was basically un-extractable until recent years. We know have the technology to effectively separate the sand from the oil in the geographic--see Athabasca tar sand deposits. But yeah...Saudi Aramco owns about 250B BOE in reserves while ExxonMobil owns about 40B BOE... This topic is entirely too complex for a forum!
  19. Who complained that "business is tough"? I work for Chevron Corporation in Bakersfield, CA, where we extract about 215,000 barrels of crude per day. It seems easy for people to target oil companies when the price at the pump goes up, but a lot of the supply holding isn't within our jurisdiction. There is a lot of nationalization and government vs. corporation feuding going on that affects our ability to discover and extract assets. Read about Nigeria and Venezuala. Also, the margins from the downstream market are incredibly slim: after subtracting the wholesale cost of fuel, the operating costs of the station, government taxes, and dealer margins, oil companies are hardly making a cent/gallon at the pump. And the operating costs of our enhanced/improved recovery methods in the upstream market are immense--steam heating to decrease viscosity, wells, appraisal wells, deep sea drilling, etc. You should also be aware that some oil corporations invest a lot of resources in alternative energy. For instance, CVX invested about $5B USD in alternative energy solutions in the past few years--geothermal, liquid natural gas (to vastly decrease transportation costs), etc. But it is true that certain oil companies, such as ExxonMobil, do not invest a single cent into alternative energy. It's a complicated industry, as you can imagine. I think all that el director is asking of you is for you to make legitimately substantiated comments, rather than black and white claims. BTW, my gas discount is pathetic--think cents per gallon. AND I spend about $450/month on gas commuting up and down California.
