11:39 pm - I LOVE YOU DOCTOR ZAIUS!
genetic super-muscles! okay so the link isn't actually all that interesting, but i'm thinking about it now- is there anything wrong with genetically enhanced athletes? or athletes taking steroids, for that matter? "Sports officials said the gene therapy has the potential of betraying the very essence of sport — athletes using their natural talents and training to compete." it seems to me that this could only benefit the essence of sports. as long as natural talent is so important, it's basically a crapshoot. i could be king of the NBA if i was 10 feet tall, but so what? so if anyone who wants to can be just as strong as governor arnold, then the training and the effort put into really enhancing skill and prowess will become that much more important. if you want to be a good athlete, you will have to work at it, and genes won't count for a damn. excuse me, my egalitarian ideals are showing.
(this would be a kindof reverse "harrison bergeron" i suppose)
(and yes i am aware that training and effort are still now vital to being a top athlete. i'm not discounting that effort, i'm just saying that this could remove any natural headstarts people get)
i'm not really worried about us becoming a world of aryan nazi supermen, or whatever, because everyone's ideal of the perfect person differs. parents would have different ideas of what they want their kids to be like, and people would presumably be able to change themselves later on if they wanted to. i don't see how a general increase in health, fitness, and (presumably at some point) intelligence would hurt anything. maybe more interesting things will be modified as well-- a generation of supercreative people would certainly be fun

green eggs and ham was written using only 50 words

If you move a meeting forward, what would you call it? How does "prepone" (an opposite of postpone) sound? The word makes perfect sense and fills a need. It's listed in many dictionaries including the OED (Oxford English Dictionary). But for some reason it has not caught on outside India where it happens to be an everyday word. I wonder why.
Necessity is the mother of invention, they say, and that's one of the ways new words are coined in the language. In fact, all words are coined words. Someone used them for the first time, in writing or speech, and thus gave birth to them.

I am so glad that Segway Kid Sucks is my best friend!!! Everyone should be jealous of her funnyness.

So anyway, if you marry a 13 year old, can you sleep with her or do you have to wait until she's 16?

so if you marry a 13 year old, does that mean you can't sleep with her until she's 16? You can still be arrested for sleeping with a complying 13 year old who isn't your wife.....does the marriage make it legal? hmmmm. well, good luck in your search!

In NH, age of consent for unmarried women is 18, or at least it was a few years ago.

Yeah it is 16 now.....18 is just legal for pornography purposes. Is it sad that I know this?
