    Reasonable minds differ on the legitimacy of global warming as an actual crisis, but anyone who thinks pollution isn't a problem should go to China and try to breathe.

    It's unfortunate that a forum such as this one won't exist, so that we could all hear the self-righteous cock-crow of the guy who is "always amazed" at how "selfish" and "callous" the people who pay f more »

    I find it more than a little amusing that, were this a woman telling a man that she didn't want to "complicate the relationship" with sex, that would be considered prudent and perfectly acceptable; bu more »

    I can't imagine quitting smoking if I were still a drinker, but when I gave up beer (gosh, I miss it), the cigarettes simply disappeared along with it. The funny thing is, I don't feel like I miss the more »

    Fans are funny things. If you don't agree with me you "don't get it" and if you haven't been at it for 50 years you're a "pink hatter" and you "don't get it." So I guess now simply winning isn't enoug more »
