Don't bring your insanity to my land of the free, which is granted by virtue of my religion, and then try to assume gay insanity on us. Gays have the right to be gay as far as their door and skin reaches, when gays reached into my house and into my skin, then it is time to shut the gay closet door shut along with their hate.

You just can't wash that gay out of your hair can you? lol

You did this, by proclaiming that you no longer were part of the 302 class, when the same science evidence placed you all there.
Sorry, I have hit my weekly limit of talking to trolls.

Like I said, when it becomes a group, it becomes something else.

If you identify yourself as part of a group, then you lose your individual identity, You become a gang.

What about all those gay friends you speak of? Do you "shut the gay closet dooor shut" on them? Whatever that means. It's time for you to open your gay closet door open.

I still like you. And btw, I have nothing against men. It's not their fault that they were born that way.

The teacher has a double standard. It’s ok for him to use improper grammar but it’s not ok for me.

You honestly know next to nothing about this stuff, hey?

It's easy: you look at the bone density, muscle attachment sites and joint sizes.

Strong muscles compress bones, increasing the density (you see this not only in the mass of the bone, but in the cellular structure). Muscle attachment sites are either large (powerful muscles) or small (weak). Joints are mechanical in nature; there are mathematical relationships between the size of the parts and how much force they can take.

The above is how we know that neanderthals were so strong, they could crush the bones of your hand with a handshake. They were stronger than contemporaneous humans - but the woman my friend dug up was a human.
