OK Hiding, here's one for you. From the great Banjo Patterson:
Drat, it won't fit.

The Cremation Of Sam McGee

There are strange things done in the midnight sun
By the men who moil for gold;
The Arctic trails have their secret tales
That would make your blood run cold;
The Northern Lights have seen queer sights,
But the queerest they ever did see
Was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge
I cremated Sam McGee.

Now Sam McGee was from Tennessee, where the cotton blooms and blows.
Why he left his home in the South to roam 'round the Pole, God only knows.
He was always cold, but the land of gold seemed to hold him like a spell;
Though he'd often say in his homely way that he'd "sooner live in hell".

On a Christmas Day we were mushing our way over the Dawson trail.
Talk of your cold! through the parka's fold it stabbed like a driven nail.
If our eyes we'd close, then the lashes froze till sometimes we couldn't see;
It wasn't much fun, but the only one to whimper was Sam McGee.

And that very night, as we lay packed tight in our robes beneath the snow,
And the dogs were fed, and the stars o'erhead were dancing heel and toe,
He turned to me, and "Cap," says he, "I'll cash in this trip, I guess;
And if I do, I'm asking that you won't refuse my last request."

Well, he seemed so low that I couldn't say no; then he says with a sort of moan:
"It's the cursed cold, and it's got right hold till I'm chilled clean through to the bone.
Yet 'tain't being dead -- it's my awful dread of the icy grave that pains;
So I want you to swear that, foul or fair, you'll cremate my last remains."

A pal's last need is a thing to heed, so I swore I would not fail;
And we started on at the streak of dawn; but God! he looked ghastly pale.
He crouched on the sleigh, and he raved all day of his home in Tennessee;
And before nightfall a corpse was all that was left of Sam McGee.

There wasn't a breath in that land of death, and I hurried, horror-driven,
With a corpse half hid that I couldn't get rid, because of a promise given;
It was lashed to the sleigh, and it seemed to say:
"You may tax your brawn and brains,
But you promised true, and it's up to you to cremate those last remains."

Now a promise made is a debt unpaid, and the trail has its own stern code.
In the days to come, though my lips were dumb, in my heart how I cursed that load.
In the long, long night, by the lone firelight, while the huskies, round in a ring,
Howled out their woes to the homeless snows -- O God! how I loathed the thing.

And every day that quiet clay seemed to heavy and heavier grow;
And on I went, though the dogs were spent and the grub was getting low;
The trail was bad, and I felt half mad, but I swore I would not give in;
And I'd often sing to the hateful thing, and it hearkened with a grin.

Till I came to the marge of Lake Lebarge, and a derelict there lay;
It was jammed in the ice, but I saw in a trice it was called the "Alice May".
And I looked at it, and I thought a bit, and I looked at my frozen chum;
Then "Here," said I, with a sudden cry, "is my cre-ma-tor-eum."

Some planks I tore from the cabin floor, and I lit the boiler fire;
Some coal I found that was lying around, and I heaped the fuel higher;
The flames just soared, and the furnace roared -- such a blaze you seldom see;
And I burrowed a hole in the glowing coal, and I stuffed in Sam McGee.

Then I made a hike, for I didn't like to hear him sizzle so;
And the heavens scowled, and the huskies howled, and the wind began to blow.
It was icy cold, but the hot sweat rolled down my cheeks, and I don't know why;
And the greasy smoke in an inky cloak went streaking down the sky.

I do not know how long in the snow I wrestled with grisly fear;
But the stars came out and they danced about ere again I ventured near;
I was sick with dread, but I bravely said: "I'll just take a peep inside.
I guess he's cooked, and it's time I looked"; ... then the door I opened wide.

And there sat Sam, looking cool and calm, in the heart of the furnace roar;
And he wore a smile you could see a mile, and he said: "Please close that door.
It's fine in here, but I greatly fear you'll let in the cold and storm --
Since I left Plumtree, down in Tennessee, it's the first time I've been warm."

There are strange things done in the midnight sun
By the men who moil for gold;
The Arctic trails have their secret tales
That would make your blood run cold;
The Northern Lights have seen queer sights,
But the queerest they ever did see
Was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge
I cremated Sam McGee.

Hi andet
I would love to. Sadly, the CNN crew that were supposed to cover the story, just finished covering the Riverside Roadkill and Chilli cookout. All of the reporters and film crew were tragically incapacitated with food poisoning. Either that, or some of the roadkill they had were still alive.
Sorry man :(
In Pennsylvania, it is lawful to pick up roadkill - as long as you notify Fish&Game.
Dratted deer are all over the road, so if it's fresh, go for it.
I make a killer Roadkill Chili.

Again, the ovum is alive when fertilized and remains alive during the entire gestation. There is never a time when it is not alive. If it wasn't alive it wouldn't grow.
Guess what retard, your bud IANS said it was alive, not that I need backup from that little worm. Watch a video about conception and you will see how life works.

The word "rape" isn't well defined. "Sexual coercion" is well described - you can look this up.
Wow, ok, so you justify rape because of alcohol. That's wonderful.
You brouught up sexual coercion within the context of force rape so you describe it. When stats are quoted 1 in 4 are raped at college, most ssume it is a male force raping a female and involves penis penetration. That is not the case.
So the guy who tried to rape me knew the bartender. I drink - I can drink a lot - he and I were out, I had three drinks. But since this guy knew the bartender, they spiked my drinks. After three drinks, I couldn't walk straight and was seeing quadruple.
The rapist gentleman was nice enough to walk me home, come inside and, well, try his thing - I didn't consent and, if you'd read above, sent him home with some sore thumbs.
So your comment "the girl is drinking and consents" is simple. That's manspeak for "hey, she's drunk. Fair game!"
Females submit to sex while drunk. Then change their minds the next day for whatever reason. That is what i am talking about. They may feel guilty because they cheated on their boyfriend and blame the whole incident of being drunk. I,m not talking about spiking drinks or anything else so quit lying and distorting my posts.
Anyways, back to the point at hand, the stats are based on surveys given to women. It turns out that fully 25% of women have sexual contact forced on them during their time in university. Now...is that all rape? No, it falls under the category "sexual coercion" which itself is broken into different legal categories.
Its reported as rape and it is BS. One in four women are not force raped meaning male penis penetration at college. If you have 2000 females at college on an average of four years you are telling everybody 500 are raped which would average out to 125 per year. At my college there were 3 reported for three years. That means 372 went unreported? BS. Who is raping all these females at college? Is it college students? Why send your son to college if it makes him a rapist? Its all rape hysteria.
As for your comments: I don't think there's a legal "drunk rape" category. And, yes, sometimes women lie to hurt or manipulate men. My brother is a lawyer - he explained that rape laws work like this:
stronger - more convictions, some innocent men
weaker - less convictions, some rapists walk
It's a tough problem, but blaming the victim isn't going to help.
Blaming the victim? Give me a break. You are the one who is blowing so much smoke, outright lying about the stats then to cover your lying ass you pull out the old blamming the victim line. Lying about the stats does not help anybody.
