    Couldn't find such a thread existing on this forum, but if it's up already, please re-direct me there and feel free to delete this one :) If it's not, then perhaps I get to be the creator of that thread in this new forum :D Or perhaps this entire sub-forum is a replacement for that thread?

    Either way, I just wanted to post this:

    http://dilbert.com/blog/entry/i_hope_my_father_dies_soon/

    And may the posting of all conceivable randomness commence!

    Oddly, it's in the "Guidelines and Introductions" section.

    Thanks, and yeah I see that it is. I utilized the search function and couldn't find it, but I guess it only applies to the specific sub-forum you're at in the moment. Still haven't really understood this new forum :D

    Feel free to lock/delete this thread.

    Very cool: easiest way to see it is to simply hold your finger up to block the white strip in the middle.

    After an arduous period of calculating CSI, I have determined that this cloud was intelligently design.

    Sounds like a skeptic to me.

    How about this article:
    http://edzardernst.com/2014/05/a-co...iving-the-popularity-of-alternative-medicine/

    It's pretty naive. Many people don't seem able to grasp the idea that a system, a human social system namely, is not the sum of its parts. Any cultural entity- a government, social movement, institution, etc- can operate as a singular entity with its own motivations & behaviors producing results not necessarily intended by any individual(s) within the system. A conspiracy does not actually require conspirators... His conclusions might be right, but his reasoning is way off. He could use a little Chomsky.

    I've always thought this was a pretty decent meme.

    Oh geez, I don't know. That would violate my philosophy on these matters.

    Aw, what the hell, I'll do it!
