General Off-Topic Board / Place to Visit in Europe?
« on: March 27, 2007, 08:04:20 PM »
Well not really Europe, UK, Spain, France, Madrid.  Thinking about doing 2-3 weeks this summer.  I would love to get some insight from people who have went.  Cheap places to stay and the likes.  Im going to hook up, drink beer, see philosophers buried in cemeteries, and eat delicious food (YES, in that order)  I going in the summer so I dont think I'll really get to enjoy the big tourist spots, so im looking for alternatives.  Im willing to get lost in France since I can read the road signs. 

Blue:  I have a feeling that you're going to recommend Holland.

What do you consider necessary to being an American citizen?  Apart from the legal definition of citizenship, do you have other consideration of what equals being a citizen.  Do you view citizenship in terms of degrees?  ie Does a third generation American whose grandparents served in WW2, father in Vietnam and who himself served in the Gulf War have a greater claim to citizennship then a naturalized immigrant.  Meaning does civic duties enable one to make greater claim to being a citizen.  This also applies to an naturiled immigrant who served in the armed forces having a greater claim then an American born in the US but does nothing to reaffirm what it means to be an American(civic duties are not limited to military service).  Or is intellectual acceptance of the principles (whatever they may be) of the United States allow individuals to claim a sense of citizenship.  ie could an unnaturalize immigrant living in the US claim citizenship because he accepts the Constitution even though he isnt legally a citizen.

Simply stated, how does civic duty, heritage, laws and intellectual acceptance factor in defining what constitute a citizen?  On the other hand you could off handly reject this and deny such a broad defition of citizenship and affirm only what the law says (but plz state why).

Skype taking a stand against lying liars

If you're an avid Skype user, and you aren't entirely honest some most of the time, you should probably watch what you say from here on out. While auditory lie detectors have definitely been around, BATM is manufacturing a dedicated fib sniffer made to work specifically with Skype. The KishKish Lie Detector will be offered up as a "Skype add-on," and will reportedly analyze audio streams over a Skype conversation in real time and "illustrate the stress level" of the other person -- you know, in case you can't quite pick up the quivering on your own. Moreover, users will be able to "record calls for delayed analysis" in case you need to comb things over once you've cooled your jets. While we've got no qualms with getting down to the truth, we can't help but think this gizmo's a tad on the creepy side of things, but it's sure to please suspicious Skype users everywhere when it rolls out sometime in the future (we promise).

General Off-Topic Board / PSA: STRADGIRL IS A HERETIC!

Ouch, you really do teach Sunday school.  have you told your employer that you are agnostic?


I tell kids female priests are practially allowed in some parts of the world.

Blasphemy.  They'll drive you out. 


I think that the LG arent as difficult as before but the reading comps are getting more complex.  I think that the LSAT won't have games in a few years as they move to a computer based system.  That's probably why we had those questions about the need for highlighting in a computer based system.

General Off-Topic Board / Give a question to an answer?
« on: December 01, 2006, 07:02:37 AM »
Let's see if this works.

here are the rules.
you give a question to the statement that the previous poster wrote and then give you give a statement for the next poster to give a question to. 

This is much simpler than it sound.  Let me start.

That's where I'll be taking it.  Hopefully there's no construction going on.  :)
