Biography

I like flags - probably a little more than is normal.
My wife is way too good for me but I played the long game and wore her down.
She didn't know about the flags til after.

Why I Don't Comment Often
2016-05-27 05:53:34
You're right, we don't disagree.

I was saying that I understand where Admin may have been coming from, but the precedent set is not a good one. I 100% agree wth you, it's the message sent to onlookers...
Why I Don't Comment Often
2016-05-26 21:38:42
I've got to say, I don't really mind the way this situation has been moderated.
I don't think Csareo has been very classy or respectful, or even constructive - but if nobody engages with him, there's...

I accept it - Csareo has some weird ideas about Football vs Rugby but other than that, he's ok!
Preemptive strikes and nukes
2016-05-14 00:42:36
Yeah, you can call it deterrence if you like. It doesn't matter. That's still fear, you're saying, "Be peaceful or else."

I would argue that that is not peace. It might LOOK like peace,...
Preemptive strikes and nukes
2016-05-13 20:44:49
You are literally saying that peace is achieved through fear.

If this were a movie, that's something the bad guys would say.

I think this'd be a good idea. I'm currently...

2016-04-12 06:53:14
I really want to see someone debate specifically this resolution:

That the Queen's Honours System should be abolished.

I'm torn because I like the honors system but I love the Proclaimers and...

Prosperity and Poverty in Countries
2016-04-12 06:12:18
I've often pondered this myself. I agree with @Admin - but I'd extend his "Trade" list to include this one concept. Often places that offer the best conditions for subsistence seem to be some...

This is a REALLY good idea. Nice work!
Sexist language
2015-12-30 08:45:25
I'm not sure you understand what a gendered noun is. Do you speak any other languages? French for example?

In many languages, nouns are assigned a gender. In French, feminine words start with "la"...

Euthanasia
2015-11-10 19:51:14
It is TOTALLY affordable. If we don't have enough money to pay a measly pension to our elderly is because we prioritise other spending above their lives.

Some of those taxes they paid built a country...
Euthanasia
2015-11-10 06:07:54
Ugh.

The elderly have worked, and paid taxes their whole lives. Now you want society to pressure them to "do the honourable thing" and take the red pill before they become a tax burden...
Euthanasia
2015-11-09 18:39:25
My opinion is not a very popular one on this subject but I wouldn't be a fan of legal euthanasia.

Whether it's ethical or not depends on where you get your ethics from. It's worth noting that you're...
Edeb8 team democrat vs team republican
2015-11-07 02:19:58
I guess I could do this, I'm just not really sure what the point is? I'm not trying to win or express my ideas, I just copy and paste someone else's?

I don't really follow American politics enough...
Debating is still fun, right?
2015-11-05 07:37:08
I feel bad that my time here has mostly been reduced to lurking. My work situation changed rather significantly this year and as a result, I've had less time to invest in online debate.

I still...
Political Quiz

Apparently I'm 80% Bernie Sanders, 75% Hillary Clinton - my top three are Democrats and the rest are Republicans. Apparently my top Republican is Donald Trump - which I find rather hard to believe.
