I have a question that may not be exactly on topic, but it does raise a concern. Ever since I entered this topic on Topix a month ago, the ads that appear in my browser are mostly Christian related. My concern is not so much the privacy issue (although it should be, I mean really – wtf?) it is the fact that on every page I browse, there’s a big ad asking "Do you believe in God? Click here for 6 reasons to believe". Now here’s my gripe. What does whoever the owner of this ad have to gain if I believe in God? Why has this person or group, who certainly have incurred reasonable costs to be my personal number 1 ad, gone out of their way to prove to me that God exists? What do they expect to gain from this? Financial gain, or just to strengthen their following? I am truly bemused by their need to prove to me that God exists on every website that I visit. This is what I find the most repellent about some true believers. They are not happy in just their own faith, they feel the need to go out of their way to convince me that I too MUST believe. Why do they take it upon themselves to "sell" this belief to others? I am already comfortable with my own religious beliefs thank you, no need to sell me on an opinion or belief that I might not share.

Sorry, I'm sticking wi' cast iron.

Not only does nothing stick to it, in an emergency it'll stop a bullet and put the shooter in a coma.

yes! the french press is the way to go, but a good ol' stove top percolator is not far behind, and gives a nice mellow flavor. also works on a wood stove better...

Did you create corn?

Or is your simpleton brain thinking that
Breeding corn to get different types is creation?

Corn is a kind of plant that has been changed by selective seed planting. The basic structure that carries the units of heredity that is tansferred from the original kind is just producing selected results.
