Go to: Potentially Universal Mechanism Of Aging Identified

Raynor's Avatar Jump to comment 42 by Raynor

Heh... two days late of /.

Some of the comments are very worthwhile:

Also, I would highly recommend the following TED talk on immortality.

I fear people like him are being destroyed by drugs/social suppression. (He would be identified as having ADD/ADHD in the US)

@1:

Short answer: It probably isn't... just no one has taken the charge to sue the state over it.

Go to: Obama will move to veto Bush laws

@ Carto: The ACLU has a good chance (as far as I can tell, but I'm no constitutional lawyer) of winning their case reversing Prop 8:

Also, I heard whispers a while back of Obama wanting to abolish the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy so that we stop losing talented men and women in our armed forces.

I have a friend who would, the day that Obama abolishes it, re-up.

Edit: typo

Go to: Children need to be sprinkled with fairy dust

Raynor's Avatar Jump to comment 157 by Raynor

I'm surprised I am the first to say I enjoy every week delving into the realm of fantasy known as Dungeons & Dragons.

I find it delightful to imagine and pretend such things... and, at least from my point of view, it doesn't seem to be causing any harm.

Go to: Convert or we will kill you, Hindu lynch mobs tell fleeing Christians

#266614:

Bribes and trickery equate to rape, murder and arson. Your argument only goes downhill from there.

If this was a mass "bribery and trickery" of christians to convert... no one would really care.

If you can change your faith over money, did you really believe in it?

After watching the video you posted: It's wrong, sure, but it still doesn't equate to what is currently going on.
