  1. I agree that it legitimizes through force the leadership of Iran. Nobody will think of doing to them what was done to Iraq.I also believe that the soon to be built nuclear weapons have a slim chance of being used. I just know from personal experience that narrow-minded religious views can and do delude people into doing pretty crazy things. I feel that people do not take this kind of thing as seriously as they should. We have know idea what the Iranians will do with their refined uranium, and the possibilities are endless. This kind of nuclear confrontation is different in a few ways from any
  2. The famous quote by Marshall McLuhan-- paraphrased; "Violence is a quest for identity" It is a gem, and to me seems fairly obvious. I have listened to many folks say that it is Iran's sovereign right to refine nuclear ore, even to a weapons grade product. I have heard that Iran only wishes to have nuclear weapons capability so that it will give other nations pause before attempting invasion, remembering the "coalition of the willing" in Iraq and Afghanistan, and recently the international air strikes and support in stripping tyranny from Libya. I have heard people say that Iran probably will n
  3. Hmm I think it is hard to say if one is more important than the other.
  4. Did any of you see the Daily Show skit they had on OWS? It was pretty awesome.
  5. You could be right athanasios, and I believe that though the scientific community always needs to keep a critical eye at these sorts of things, I also believe that too much cynicism can lead to downright arrogance. So we will see... only time will tell if this device will work.
  6. http://www.theeestory.com/topics/7700?page=1 I just picked this site out for the sake of brevity. Many other sites have talked about Andrea Rossi's dubious past, and it all seems true. With this kind of background, I honestly cannot trust what this guy has to say or offer. On top of this, the use of Calorimeters in reported cold fusion devices has been around since the late eighties, and though I believe there might... and I mean MIGHT be a chance for this kind of "cold" fusion to work, I have to honestly say that I believe it most probably wont.
  7. looks interesting. From what I can see it is about life, from the smallest to largest scale, and the sort of butterfly effect concept that we are "ripples" in "the holy ocean of eternity".
  8. There are a few interesting concepts in proper fusion technology these days, and one in a sort of "cold fusion" that could maybe have a potential future, but as Dante said, Ill believe it when I see it.
  9. What Lord J said pretty much. It definitely has influences, since the cultures in Dune derive from cultures from ancient earth. They have evolved to such an extant that it is hard to truly separate and designate which cultures truly came from which. It is a mish mash, really. Lots of allusions to his day and age, not to mention the fact that you can read and feel how dated his concepts are throughout.
  10. functioning sociopaths I believe can become very successful, though generally close interpersonal relationships tend to suffer because of the specific behavior that is noted in sociopaths/psychopaths. I believe that there is a spectrum of those who are born sociopaths. It can range from cold blooded killers, to serial liars. Ever read any Oliver Sacks? If you are interested in the neurological aspects of human behavior, you should check him out.
  11. I really want to get more involved in paper roleplay games, are you guys talking about these types of games done online? That would be neat to do. Is Shadowrun played online?
  12. Marvin Gaye "After The Dance"and Elis Regina & Tom Jobim "Aguas De Marco"
  13. I actually don't know much about the film ,or it's director. I saw a preview of it from the Caan film festival, and it really piqued my interest. Does anybody know anything about the film, or when it might be released to DVD? Anybody have some info on the film or the director? If anybody has any info, I would be much obliged. Also, what films have you guys watched lately? Regards: Titus

    Dune Anime

    I have heard this talked about, and have seen people mention it and I have thought about it as well. Do any of you guys think Dune would be a great medium for an anime? I honestly think that it could work very well. I think it could allow for a very deep exploration of the Dune universe and overcome so many of the hurtles that a traditional filming would entail. What do you guys think about Dune as anime?
  15. It is no use to flail these people with attacks... that is just too easy a thing to do. Why is there such a reaction taking place in the vaguely labeled "west"? People here see that changes are taking place at such a blinding pace that it frightens them... it frightens me. This huge paradigm shift we see happening in the world is occurring without any real control. Those who are actually in control are setting themselves upon a path in which they will see the greatest benefit. Those who are living in the "developing" countries are indeed seeing great benefits, but are also still suffering fr
