Regarding kashrus, as I am unable to obtain kosher meat in my city, there is certainly no need to keep separate kitchens.

I think the appropriate thing to do would be to abstain from meat if you cannot find anything kosher.
I think it'd be equivalent to buying pork tenderloin because they were all out of chicken when you went to the store, and you had to get something.

Usually Volume 1 has all the good stuff on it. Good luck with Volume 2! If there even is a volume 2.

Tom, your premise does not hold up. There are more heterosexual married couples who cannot have kids than there are gay couples in the U.S. From your argument, these heterosexual couples are also not contributing and shouldn't be allowed to marry and benefit from it.

The purpose of hunting is to kill and/or capture an animal. If you carry weapons into the wilderness, stalk prey, take shots at them, etc., but you never bag an animal, you are still engaging in hunting.

Shooting bullets into cardboard, on the other hand, is a completely different game with different outcomes.

It is easy to see why hunting might have one set of rules and regulations, or even given its own government sponsored benefits, and why target practice might have its own rules and no benefits. It would be ridiculous, no doubt, for people playing target practice to demand the same benefits that hunters get.

I know this post is a little old, but sticking with this analogy, when the government has decided a cull needs to happen, you don't get money for shooting at deer/coyotes, you only get money when you show up with a carcass.
Why not only give benefits to people caring for children instead of married couples, if that's the goal?

There are people who carpool into work. If only one of those people has a car, and the others pay for gas money, should the driver need to register as a taxi?

They should just get out of the business. I can only imagine what Taxi drivers will do when car sharing services start putting out driverless cars that you can call to pick you up.

At least it was one of the more exciting games to watch, especially compared to the Japan/Australia match.

Canada is going to beat England quite handily this Saturday.


I wonder what this graph would look like if it adjusted for education and experience. My guess would be that the discrepancy would be much smaller.

David Cameron seems to be competing with Tony Abbott for the title of worst Commonwealth head of government. Abbott is currently pushing to violate international laws by revoking citizenship from sole Australian nationals involved in terrorism, effectively leaving them stateless, something even his own ministers have spoken out against. I'm honestly not sure which is worse, his comments or Cameron's.

The whole Commonwealth is going down the toilet. Let's all move to America.

Uhhhh, Canada rules.
Canada allowed Mark Carney to blow a huge property bubble in their economy and then sent him to Britain to do the same to us. It is from Canada we have chosen to import our master criminals.

Mark Carney is probably one of the best central bankers in the world, you should feel privileged we leant him to you.
Also, if you think Canada is so wonderful, look at Bill C-51 that they're trying to push through before the election.
It makes terrorist so broadly defined that non-violent protesters become terrorists.

Schools don't teach economics - not real economics, just Keynesian mumbo-jumbo if you take the course.

I'd like to know where you get that idea from, seeing as the economists who were advising most major countries during the financial crisis were huge advocates of austerity. Surely some of them aren't teaching things they don't themselves believe.

Although this is a terrible way to decide such an issue, I'm glad the vote turned out the way it did.

Benevolent dictatorship would be my preferred option. Run by a leader so rich as to be incorruptible and with only the best interests of his subjects at heart.

No one really wants democracy. You always end up with two teams of the same persuasion boring the crap out of you with lies and squabbling whilst pandering to rich friends. You just want the country to be run well.

I'd be okay with living in that Country. such a person doesn't exist though.

I'm glad they "cast" Corin Nemec.  That guy can't lose.

I wonder if anyone else got this besides me.  Do the young folks know about Parker Lewis Can't Lose?

Anyway, "Q Who" is probably where TNG really started to get interesting.  The first appearance of the Borg and it was actually excellent in almost every way... easily, I think, the best episode of the first two seasons.  You put "The Royale" above this, Parsifal?  ???

Every Q episode in the series is good, in my opinion. Voyager has about 4 Q episodes. Two of which involve Q's son, Q.

My favourite part was when Sysko punched Q in the face.

If you took some cud from a cow, and fed it to a pig, and the pig chewed it, does that mean that you could eat it?
