Well, not that they SHOW you those videos in sex-ed. Check out the self-help section next time you're in the local bookstore. You might be surprised

That reminds me of my friend's Facebook post last night.
"Guy serving me at Chik Fil A was gay. Such good chicken."
My friend who posted this is gay, LOVES Chik Fil A, and has supported them through the drama.
And kudos to your friend. If more gay people behaved THIS way, instead of boycotting, filing law-suits, and DEMAND they get their way, AND quit comparing their plight to blacks, and stopped with their hatred and name-calling, more people might be more sympathetic to them

Maybe I'm giving the troll too much credit, I need to remind myself they're not very bright

Here's the meaning behind my response: you probably find it completely acceptable to boycott someone who doesn't share your beliefs,(i.e. Chick fil a in this case) but then you're gonna question me on MY boycott of someone who has a stance that opposes mine (King).

Hypocrite much?

That was a very nice job of completely fabricating the position of someone you don't know so you can respond to a question with an accusation.

I would not boycott someone for simply having a different belief system than I unless it involved some evil intent. I would boycott someone who is overtly racist. Or who is proven to be a pedophile. Things like that. I would not boycott someone simply because they disagreed with me on gun control or abortion or which god to worship or whether or not global warming is real. Their positions on those issues are not overtly evil or mean-spirited. I am going to guess that many people you currently favor have opinions that differ from yours. You just don't know it.

What would you do with a gun rights advocate who believed in global warming?

But would you boycott chick fil a? You didn't even go there. I would boycott a restaurant who had a cook as a convicted murderer (a discussion we actually had) regardless of how good their pork-fritters were

Don't presume to know what I do or do not know. I have a few liberal friends. I am friends with them because we enjoy each other's company, regardless of where we stand on social issues. I have a gay niece who is getting gay-married this year. She is still my niece and I still love her, even though I oppose re-writing the definition of marriage. I do not support politicians who do not agree with my political views. Republican senator Mark Kirk is the first to pop into mind

Many liberals believe in gun rights, anymore I don't think it's about their personal beliefs, they just realize it's a fight they cannot win. If it's a friend of mine, I really don't care what they believe in as long as we get along. If it's a politician I'm voting for, there are other issues that concern me than just those two, I'd have to look at those before making a decision.

Not to overstate the obvious, but the climate has been changing for millennia. I believe it's changed in the past, and I believe it will change in the future. I just dont believe man is creating that change. Sure we are helping it, but so is every other living thing on the planet. I also believe that someday the sun will supernova and fry this planet like a bug under a magnifying glass. I am not going to worry about either one of these things, since we as a race are powerless to prevent either one from happening.
<quoted text>
Interesting view. Makes sense. I tend to agree to a point. I believe we are changing the planet to a degree, however not as much as some would have you believe. Of course then again, I'm pretty sure me and a couple of friends of mine from high school, may be somewhat responsible for a small hole in the ozone, from all the Aqua Net hair spray, back in the late 80's....

It didn't tell me who I ranked as. It showed a picture of the Big Bang theory peeps. I got 37 out of 300 and it said:

"You’ve definitely got some nerdy tendencies, but you’re not really a *true* geek quite yet. Aspire to geekiness, and a geek you shall become."

That's funny cause I have said the same thing about myself. I'm not a total nerd, but I have some nerd tendencies. I can speak geek.

One of the questions should have asked if you post online, followed up by have you posted online over 25,000 comments.

That link was on a former co-worker's facebook. He got 189 out of 300. I got 15. For most of the list I was like WTF is this jibba jabba?!?

Some of the crap I got should no even count. I own and old Atari, original Nintendo. Woo hoo. Me and half the kids that grew up in that era.

Seen all the Star Wars movie. Same thing.

Whoa whoa whoa... This is a well stated, articulate, non-nut job response. Who are you and what did you do with Edog?

I got 30. I tend to surround myself with geeks, while not actually being one myself. I recognized everything they were asking about.

Don't know why I am surprised that you only got 15.

Yes, I got points for the old gaming systems too. Almost all my points were computer or technology related. I still know dos. Have done emulation. Have changed hardware on computers. I don't program, but I know my stuff on the hardware side. I've overclocked both a CPU and GPU. 90% of my points, I racked up at the end.

You would think this group never heard of ( or saw or owned ) Joy of Sex ( quaint these days- it was published in the 70's, pre-AIDS) or browsed that aisle at Borders when they were open or Barnes and Noble

heard of the title. Never seen it. Never really knew what it was. Could have been a porno for all I know. And nope. Never browsed a book store for porn. There's better places for that. Like the rack of magazines behind the counter ath the quickie mart.

I got an 8 - not very geeky. But they didn't ask me ANYTHING about Weird Al.

And I knew what a borny was, but I am not one, simply because a brony is a MALE fan of My Littlle Pony.
