    Juxtapositions

    Sometimes two threads land together randomly on the GF such that their titles take on a new meaning together. An example from today: NHS Reforms The Holy Bible If you spot any good ones, put them in here.

    E-Cigarettes

    Anyone else tried "vaping"? I am about halfway through my first day of it instead of tobacco. Not bad.

    Rate the last game you've played...

    They are billions - 8/10. Superbly balanced AI for a beta release. Fiendishly difficult RTS. Needs screen rotation.

    Paul Konchesky

    I'm beginning to think you might have a point there.

    Rate the last film you watched...

    Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny. 7/10, not up to the original but still a great Wuxia film, and stunning visually.

    Middle East Thread

    He talks as if the west has ever had any intention of increasing stability in the region, which I don't think I believe.

    Depression

    Should also add that quite a few private counsellors will offer concessions as well. While I wasn't working I managed to find a really good one who was only charging me £15 a session. The problem is that if you are feeling unmotivated in the first place it can be difficult to ask for it. Once I'm qualified in six months or so though, that is definitely something I will be doing.

    Depression

    Yeah there are a lot of charities which offer reduced rates for counselling for those who can't afford it, but I agree the provision made by the NHS is woefully inadequate.

    Fixed that for you.

    Oh, he's a white nationalist holocaust denier, no hidden agendas there then.

    Tactical nuclear strikes! Pay me now, and we can stop em!

    The Positively Atheist Thread

    Why does there have to be a reason?

    Donald Trump

    A lot of his stated policies are openly and unashamedly fascist. The thought of him even getting one primary scares the shit out of me.

    Donald Trump

    All of Sanders fundraising has been from small individual donors (average contribution of around $30), whereas Clinton's comes from the banks and the big corps, so it's not so much what he spends as the fact he hasn't been bought.

    Donald Trump

    Be interesting to see how it plays out, but the Clintons definitely seem worried, since their campaign can now be summed up as attack Bernie rather than discuss what her policies are. I would say Sanders is gathering a LOT of momentum right now, just like a certain unknown black politician in 2008 who won against Clinton when the serious political pundits were saying he couldn't for many of the same reasons. One thing is clear from this election so far; whatever the establishment want they are fighting a massive groundswell of anti-establishment feeling right now.

    Donald Trump

    They were probably saying the same when Sanders was 50 points behind in NH just a couple of months ago and Trump was being written off as a joke candidate?

    The Positively Atheist Thread

    Sure, we have it in us to arrive at these concepts by ourselves, but we are not born knowing or believing anything.

    The Positively Atheist Thread

    Agnostics are atheist by definition. If you don't know, you can't believe. It's not a problem to be both though. And Dawkins has fuck all to do with these categorisations, which predate him by centuries.

    The Positively Atheist Thread

    If you aren't a theist then you are an atheist, the two are mutually exclusive by definition.
