As the coward that you are you try to minimize your embarassing mistakes and make other's mistakes big matters. LOL

My mistake was an oversight where closed and isolated systems are concerned.
While you keep running away from every question in math and science that I have put to you.
You could not even solve that 7th Grade Math question on number of chocolates and got the wrong answer which was a shock to me.
Back here 12 year olds can solve that problem while a so-called scholar like you could not get the correct answer to such a basic question. LOL.
Now, why don't you solve the above questions in Math and Physics that I have posted, dunce?
You just talk illogical nonsense but lack substance and class.
BTW, you made a glaring error in calling Islam a monotheistic faith when it's clearly monolatristic. LOL.
I never ran away from your question I just found illogic your modus operandi. If I want I can pose problems to you that you will not answer at all. Anyone can do this but no one do that to you. Make work your brain and guess why.

Oh you call that an oversight? After I pointed out the mistake to you, all you did was insist with that mistake, and after you figure out you were wrong you haven't admitted it.

There are many instances where I pointed out, for at least three years you copy and paste stuff from internet. Sometimes I have taken your quote from the website you copied.

Yes, I made the mistake to call Islam a monotheistic religion, so what? Do we have to count how many times you have called Judaism a monotheistic religion? You just stopped to do that after I told YOU and FRijoles that is a monolastristic religion.

Like Hugh, you're talking from a middle class buyer's point of view.
This strategy of slowly moving up the market in terms of volume of sales and popularity does not work with the high end haute couture designers. They are well established and anything new they produce has that stamp of class and high quality and sells out fast.
You should walk into the uber-chic clothes salons selling haute wear in Paris, Milan, NY or even Mumbai. You'll be intimidated and overwhelmed by the sheer luxury and class on display.
Pret a porter is passe and much cheaper than haute wear.
At the rarefied end of the fashion spectrum, if a famous designer known for say haute wear suits takes to designing underwear they'll sell like hot cakes with his rich clients and many who can't afford the haute clothes line will willingly buy the designer wear undergarments for its tag value and also because it will be much cheaper than say a haute suit costing $ 50000 or more. Of course the quality is assured.
Frijoles---And to boot - he actually has a point regarding quality and the evolution of brand names.

Joel---Like Hugh, you're talking from a middle class buyer's point of view.

Hugh--- Your inability to note a rare moment of sense from Frijoles is disappointing and is no less disappointing than the mentality of the masses which you have displayed and which allows you to know quality because everybody else regards it as such.

Joel---This strategy of slowly moving up the market in terms of volume of sales and popularity does not work with the high end haute couture designers. They are well established and anything new they produce has that stamp of class and high quality and sells out fast.

Hugh--- Do you understand your words i.e. "They are well established "? I am talking about quality that is just emerging from an unknown.

Sex feelings of any kind - heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual or bestial - is always mental by which I mean that sex urges, thoughts or intentions always originate in the mind and then only do they manifest in the nerves, blood vessels and sexual organ given the close mind-body link.
If homosexuality is an abnormal mental condition, as you aver, then shouldn't this abnormality of mind manifest as abnormal brain wiring that as a result shows up as insanity or some other mind or body disease?
This is never observed and so your claims are products of illogical thinking derived from irrational and unscientific religious mumbo jumbo.
At the most, anal tissues may get damaged if penetration is rough but vaginal tissues can also bleed or get hurt if not sufficiently lubricated or during rough/forceful penal penetration.
So, your objections are silly dogma.
HughBe--- It seems that you have used a scatterbrain approach to my post. Refocus and deal with what comes next.

Joel---what difference does it make if 2 men have anal intercourse

Joel---Obviously, you can't prove anything except blindly quote a silly book like the Tanach that teaches barbarism and stone age values.

HughBe--- I want you to prove me wrong by doing the following and then report your observations.

1. Stick your finger into a willing woman's vagina and then smell it and taste it.

2. Stick you finger into Frijoles' arse and then smell it and yes TASTE it.

3. Come back and tell me that there is no difference.

I usually never refer to wiki.
Show me where I have cut and pasted.
Regarding the universe being an open, closed or isolated system - I first said it was a closed system since I was thinking about the multiverse (or about higher dimensions that exceed the 4-dimensional universe excluding the claims of strings that posits 11 or so dimensions for our universe) with which exchanges of energy could take place and later clarified that by stating that our universe is isolated if the multiverse did not exist. Finally, I said it could not be deciphered experimentally if our universe was closed or isolated as these are only speculations.
Now, get down to solving those basic problems in math and physics and don't come out with incorrect answers like that grade 7 question on the chocolates which you got wrong.
Where did you see above in my post I named Wiki? You are stupid enough to make a fool of yourself.

As for the kind of system the universe belong to, well the problem was that you have made two mistake, one concerning a big mistake about one of the most famous law of Physics and then a giant contradiction, and it required different posts before you move from there, but then you came out with an excuse. Here I read you were thinking about a multiverse? LOL. That's good one.

Sorry but what is this nonsense? You wrote: "I was thinking about the multiverse (or about higher dimensions that exceed the 4-dimensional universe excluding the claims of strings that posits 11 or so dimensions for our universe) with which exchanges of energy could take place and later clarified that by stating that our universe is isolated if the multiverse did not exist."

Are you try to convince me or yourself? You have no good basis of Physics. So if the theory of strings was excluded what about the bosonic theory of string with his 26 dimensions? LOL

However I remember chatting with you about that, Alex and me had a good long laugh.

Ok, but then how is it that your foundation in Math, Physics and Chemistry is so weak - your foundation in these key subjects is not good even for high school level.
Well, anyway, I guess this is the way things work out in the US where just a handful of qualified people have strong basics and good creative skills while the others who have grad degrees flounder where the ordinary basics are concerned. I have personally interacted with many American grad students at IIT and before IIT days and a few years ago as well and have invariably found most of them seriously lacking in the basics - they have such a weak foundation in Math and Science that we'd wonder at the quality of the US educational system and laugh out loud. No wonder, Asian students are outperforming native Americans at universities and labs in the US.
I've heard that America's most meritocratic school, Caltech, where they're no hidden quotas for Jews, Hispanics and Blacks - all of whom underperform academically and have low SAT scores - is 40 % Asian.
Yes, Caltech is 40% Asian - this is what I've heard - and that a cap had to be put on Asian admissions by the administrators or else they feared the Asian students would have taken nearly 75% of the seats at this most prestigious US university.
The US Math, Physics, Chem and Bio teams for the international Olympiads is almost fully Asian and so are most Intel science talent search winners.
Anyway, Rabbee, congratulations on earning multiple masters and doctorate degrees. LOL.
Best Regards.
rabbee: what don't you understand, about tired and retired? if you don't use it, you begin to lose it. and only then find out, how irrelevant that anti-kodacrome education was any way. my interests and priorities, have changed.

besides the only thing a degree is good for, is to get you in the front door. and today they prefer you have an associates degree, than having to retrain a harder headed phd. college education, is not work experience. so i had and advantage at the time, to always have a job related to my college interests. but it's, over now. all the good milk, has been spilt. and i am not returning to those, bygone interests.

Report: NBC Edits Video to Frame Veterans
Maddow selectively edits clip to demonize peaceful activism
Adan Salazar
Infowars.com
Oct. 15, 2013
MSNBC has been caught airing a deceptively edited video of a rally that took place in Washington
D.C. over the weekend, in addition to flagrantly lying to its viewers.
Raw footage of the protests outside the gates of the White House showed hyped-up riot police
striking and shoving elderly war vets.
However, in a segment produced by MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, only two-thirds of the footage was
shown, making it appear as though veterans initiated the confrontations.
Just as we witnessed during the Trayvon Martin affair, NBC has once again utilized selective editing
techniques in attempts to manipulate its target audience, omitting violence on the part of police in
order to demonize protesters who dared to defend themselves against the barrage of assaults – both
to their bodies and their liberties.
Maddow also played the rally off as a small gathering of fringe Tea Party supporters, in efforts to
dismiss legitimate protests through divide and conquer.
In reality, the demonstration, for the most part, was a non-partisan assembly of vets and
concerned citizens infuriated with the Obama administration’s spiteful decision to barricade
national war memorials.
Maddow followed through with a p
ently dishonest statement that the police featured weren’t
being paid.

...Pret a porter is passe and much cheaper than haute wear...
I hate it when people misuse the French. Haute simply means "high", as in high-class. And pret-a-porter means ready-to-wear.

So, haute and pret-a-porter aren't mutually exclusive. Most haute designers have a pret-a-porter line (or several lines). Any designer who is a member of Federation Francaise de la couture (Valentino, Paco Rabanne, Chanel ...) can claim the title "haute".

What you probably meant to say is "pret-a-porter is much cheaper than bespoke". Or, ready-to-wear is cheaper than custom made. Even that isn't necessarily true. It depends on who is making the clothes. An off-the-rack suit by Valentino could easily cost more than a bespoke Saville Row suit. Price isn't necessarily a indication of quality.

Follow up point. People who constantly talk about the prices of their "haute" clothing typically don't own any haute clothing.

And it doesn't matter, the Whitehouse was out promoting free health insurance, and lets face it, those idiots on public assistance think that everything is free.
The poor have had free health care for many decades. All they need to do is walk into any emergency room at any hospital, and thy get their medical care free. The downside (for all of us) is that by doing so, they clog the emergency system with non-emergency needs - or, far worse - they wait until a minor problem really IS an emergency situation, and then their free treatment ends up costing thousands of dollars more.
Giving them a single payer plan with preventative care would be cheaper...
